Exclusive! Jennifer Gimenez Tells Us About Brandi Glanville’s Surgery

AUTHOR:

Jennifer Gimenez and Brandi Glanville at Brandi's 40th birthday party

Real Housewives of Beverly  Hills star Brandi Glanville  went under the knife earlier today to get a non-cancerous tumor removed from her  breast. There for moral support was her longtime friend Jennifer  Gimenez, who is talking to Starcasm exclusively about how the surgery went and how Brandi is doing now.

“Brandi is officially out of surgery,” Jenn announced to us just one hour  ago. “I spoke to the doctor and I saw it  [the tumor]. It was the size of a golf ball!” Wow, that’s massive — especially  considering Brandi’s small frame. Thank god it wasn’t cancerous!

“I’m so relieved she’s ok,” Jenn adds. “I was crying as I saw her being taken  for surgery. Now I’m crying for joy.”

After arriving home, Brandi filled her fans in on her progress via  Twitter. ”Just got home have 5 nurses: Mason, Jake, @JenniferGimenez,  @DarinHarvey, and my ’gaygent.’ size of golf ball :/ major pain type n with left hand,” she wrote. “Thanks for all my well wishes. No pain meds for me… They make me nauseous.”

Prior to the surgery, Brandi talked to In  Touch about the surgery. “It’s a blessing the tumor is non-cancerous,” she said. ”I’m anxious about the recovery but have great friends who will be playing nurse. I’m ready to get it over with and feel  better.”

We love us some Brandi Glanville and hope she’s back on her feet and back to Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders soon :)

Brandi Glanville is constantly at the center of controversy but through it all, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star exclusively tells RadarOnline.com there’s one thing that keeps her sane and that’s her best friend, Jennifer Gimenez.
Through a husband, a divorce, her children, Twitter wars, reality-TV, explosive feuds with her ex’s new wife and terrifying medical scares, Brandi says Jennifer is the one who has always been by her side, so much so, that when Brandi attended therapy sessions with Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes, Jennifer sat in with her! “Jennifer is like a family member to me. She’s really been my rock through my divorce, through everything. When I went to therapy with [Eddie and LeAnn], Jennifer sat in with me because she’s my other half right now,” Brandi told Radar.
“I would do anything for her. We’re just one big misfit family. I depend on her…I lean on her and I need her. She keeps me sane when I start to go crazy. She calls me out when I’m not right and she validates me when I need it.”
And the feeling is mutual, because Jennifer tells RadarOnline.com that she would take a bullet for Brandi and literally owes her life to her. “In my toughest, most darkest time, she and my mom threw me into treatment,” Jennifer, who is now years into sobriety, said.”If it wasn’t for them, I doubt I would be alive today. I would take a bullet for her. People get the wrong idea about Brandi…she is a loving and caring woman, a great mother to her two boys…she LOVES her boys, and a great friend. She’s very generous, supportive and truthful.”
The two women have been best friends for 16 years, and Jennifer was even the first one to hold Brandi’s nine-year-old son, Mason, when he was born. “The negative stuff people say about Brandi, it’s not true. If they knew Brandi like I do they wouldn’t believe the bullish*t,” Jennifer said. “Jennifer’s my voice of reason in so many ways. She lived with me for a year, and my boys love her. She’s my best friend and almost like a therapist to me!” Brandi said.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Brandi has a benign tumor in her breast that she will have surgically removed on Wednesday, and it’s Jennifer who will be with her during the procedure. “I’m very proud of Brandi…today is yet another obstacle for her. She has surgery, but she will not be alone because I’ll be there to be by her side,” Jennifer said.

Exclusive! Jennifer  Gimenez clears up the rumors, dishes on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Jennifer Gimenez from Rehab with Dr. Drew and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Jennifer Gimenez was the target of an internet rumor recently that  claimed her BFF Brandi Glanville kicked her out of her home and forced her into  treatment for an alleged drug problem.  But Jenn is speaking out, clearing up this far-fetched claim, and is also  dishing on the upcoming third season of Real Housewives of Beverly  Hills!

Jenn tells Starcasm exclusively that not only did Brandi never kick her out  of her home to get treatment, she has never kicked her out period. “She  never kicked me out. Brandi and I have been friends for 15 yrs I lived with her last October until a  few months ago. I moved out because it was time. She and I needed each other  last year. It was great for both of us.”

Brandi is the one, along with Jenn’s mother, who forced Jenn into treatment  back in 2005 after her drug use took control. At the time, Jenn was living alone  in apartment, but when her best friend  and her mother realized that she needed help, they confronted her and sent her  to a treatment center. “She and my mom  where the last two people in my life in 2005 and didn’t want to see me die,” Jenn explains. “We are like sisters.  We’ve been through thick and thin together.”

Jenn, who will celebrate 7 years of sobriety in January, got clean after  treatment and headed to a sober living facility. Since then, she has gotten certified as a group counselor and rehab technician. Jenn has put  her knowledge regarding drugs  and addiction to good use alongside Dr.  Drew on Sober House and Celebrity Rehab, and is now on a new series titled Rehab, which airs every Sunday night on Vh1. Jenn is also the  spokesperson for the Klean Treatment Center in Los Angeles and co-hosts their live radio show  every Sunday.

Jenn is currently spending her time working on a new memoir about her life  and co-hosting Healthline. As if that weren’t enough to keep her  busy, she begins filming Birthday  Cake, the follow-up film to Groom’s Cake (which  won the award for Best Comedy at 8 out of 9 film festivals), next month. Of her  character in the flick, she says, “I’m kind of like that fly you can’t kill in  your house!” Jenn also will be seen in the 2013 horror flick Chastity  Bites.

Starting Monday, Jenn will be appearing on Real Housewives of Beverly  Hills for the all new third season which she tells us is “juicy.” Jenn has been friends with Brandi for so long, so it’s only right that Jenn  would appear alongside her on the show. “I was in her wedding and was her  first friend to hold Mason in hospital,” she reveals, adding that Brandi “is a  great friend, mother, and woman.” Jenn even walked the runway for Brandi when  she launched her new clothing line Brand B, and during the cast’s trip to Vegas,  Jenn was spotted alongside Brandi, Camille, Kyle, Lisa, and Marisa.

In addition to getting to hang out with her friend, Jenn has also formed some  new friendships during her time on RHOBH. “I love, love, love Yolanda,” she tells us of the newest ‘Wife cast on the show. As for who she keeps in touch  with when the cameras aren’t rolling, Jenn told us she’s closest with Lisa and  Yolanda. “I love Lisa. I keep in touch with her. I have also seen Kyle.” Regarding the other newbie, “friend of the housewives” Marisa Zanuck, Jenn  says she is a “sweet girl.”

Real Housewives’ Jennifer Gimenez on Reaching Out to Kim Richards, Fighting With Brandi Glanville — Exclusive
Jennifer Gimenez Poses at the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Style Event on April 18, 2012
Although she’s not a full time cast member, from time to time Jennifer Gimenez appears as a voice of reason on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and a comforting presence on Rehab with Dr. Drew. Wetpaint Entertainment chatted with the reality star at the RHoBH Season 3 premiere party on Sunday about juggling two shows, fighting with BFF Brandi Glanville, and reaching out to Kim Richards.
Wetpaint Entertainment: What was it like shooting Rehab and RHOBH at the same time?
Jennifer Gimenez: It was crazy because I was living at Brandi’s house and shooting Rehab, working 18-hour days. I would work nights, and I would wake up and I would shoot Housewives, which was insane! On one show, I’m saving lives and on the other one, I feel like I’m letting my hair down a little bit, yet it’s so dramatic.
Are you still living at Brandi’s?
I recently moved out of Brandi’s. She’s the one who actually threw me into treatment. Brandi and my mom saved my life years ago. We were both going through some changes in our lives and we both thought it was a great idea to move in together and it was. Living with her and the boys was just so great. Now I live on my own; I feel like I’m wearing big girl panties.
You always seem to be there for Brandi; is she always there for you?
Yes, we’re like sisters and we fight like sisters. You see us bicker a little bit; we’re like an old married couple. She’s family, and she shows up for me all the time and I show up for her. What we do is real love; it’s unconditional.
Aside from Brandi, who else do you get close with this season?
I love Yolanda [Foster]; I get very close with Yolanda. I get very close with Lisa [Vanderpump]. I think Kyle [Richards] is great.
You’re seven years sober, is that correct?
I will be in January!
Have you been able to reach out to Kim and offer her guidance or advice?
I did! I reached out to Kim last year at the end of the show. I said, ‘Do you need my help? Is there something I can do?’ She was like, ‘Eff you, you’re Brandi’s friend.’ I said, ‘Eff Brandi and the cameras. This is about your life.’ This year, we actually got to know each other a little bit more so it was nice. Everyone always asks me ‘How can you do a show like Housewives and Rehab? How dare you?’ It’s like I got sober to live my dreams and I can’t, so I don’t, but everyone else is entitled to drink or do whatever, I’m not here to save the world.
Any chance we’ll see you acting in the near future?
Yes, I have Rehab out right now. I shot a movie called Chastity Bites last year; it was my first movie back sober. Then I shot another one, Groom’s Cake, and it’s won seven out of eight in the film festivals for best comedy.
I’m shooting another feature in November called Birthday Cake so I’ve been really busy. I’ve been co-hosting another show and I still do CNN and HLN. I don’t sleep, and I’m writing a book. I lost 130 pounds! In recovery, I gained 100 pounds but I’ve lost 130 since.

     Brandi Glanville launching her own fashion line called Brand B

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville introduced the world to her new clothing line called “Brand B” last week, and no one even knew it was coming! The brand made its debut the grand opening of Nicole Winnaman’s flagship boutique Nikki West in Old Town, Pasadena on Wednesday.


“I just want to make my mommy friends happy and more comfortable and sexy,” Brandi said of her inspiration for the line.

“I wanted to put the message out there that my dresses are for women not girls necessarily, and you can be sexy and comfortable at the same time — and you can be chic and it doesn’t need to be expensive. These are very affordable dresses,” Brandi told press at the event. “My goal was to get my friends out of their gym clothes.”

Brandi’s line consists of easy-to-wear pieces that consumers will be able to simply add flip flops to. There’s not need to dig through your closets trying to find an outfit that goes well together, ladies. Just grab one of your Brandi B dresses and you’ll be comfortable and yet ready to hit the town.

Brandi’s BFF and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star, Jennifer Gimenez (above), walked the runway for her friend in Wednesday’s launch and told press how excited and honored she was to be part of the event. “I’m extremely proud of my BFF Brandi and her new line. To me, it represents a woman feeling comfortable and sexy no matter what size you are and no matter what age you are. It’s all about empowering a woman.”


Jennifer and Brandi met over 20 years during their modeling days and have been friends ever since.

During her press rounds during the launch, Brandi confirmed that she and the girls of the B.H. have officially wrapped filming on season 3 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Jennifer added that she too wrapped filming on July 30, which was the rumored finale party and ceremony for Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd’s vow renewal. As we previously reported, Adrienne Maloof missed out on what is now believed to be the finale party (it was originally reported to be the Reunion Special) recorded the day prior to this event.

The premiere date for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 3 has yet to be announced but the show will likely premiere in middle to late fall. Meanwhile, Jennifer Gimenez returns to reality TV in a new series called Rehab in September. Stay tuned — it’s sure to be a drama-filled season on both shows!

Jennifer Gimenez dishes on all things reality 

By: Lindsay Cronin

Jennifer Gimenez is what one might call a reality television pro. She’s been in everything from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills to Sober House, and she’s not slowing down. In the next few months, fans will be able to see her in Rehab, a new show by Dr. Drew, and RHOBH, which both premiere this fall and will likely be airing simultaneously.

During last night’s debut of her friend Brandi Glanville‘s clothing line, Jenn dished on how being on reality shows affects her personal relationships, dating, and she expressed interest in adding yet another reality show to her extensive resume.

“It really makes you realize who your real friends are and who’s going to be there for the long run,” Jenn reveals. She also spoke about finding privacy within her circle of  friends. Luckily, she’s been blessed with what she refers to as her ‘towers.’

When it comes to dating, Jenn says, “It’s really hard to date, trust me, it’s really hard to date or be married.” Although Jenn is currently single, she looks forward to marriage and kids at some point. Perhaps she should apply for ABC’s The Bachelor or The Bachelorette! Well, maybe not. That may lead to a reality show overload. However, Jennifer may be eyeing up another ABC reality show — Dancing With The Stars!

When the interviewer took a brief pause, Jenn joked that he was just waiting for her to put her foot in her mouth, which she claims to do often, but as she says, “I’m kind of okay with it.” A good attitude to have — especially in reality TV.

Brandi Glanville’s BFF Jennifer Gimenez dishes on her new clothing line

By: Lindsay Cronin

Last night, Brandi Glanville launched her new clothing line, and right by her side was her longtime best friend, Jennifer Gimenez. Brandi and Jenn have been friends for several years — to say the least. The two met while modeling over twenty years ago!

The two have been through a lot together including Brandi’s husband’s affair and Jenn’s battle with addiction. Luckily, they have supported each other without fail and are now both in a better place and their careers are thriving. In fact, they often appear together on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, so it was only appropriate that these two shared this special moment together.

When I asked Jenn about Brandi’s new clothing line, she expressed her happiness for her friend. “I’m extremely proud of my BFF Brandi and her new line. To me, it represents a woman feeling comfortable and sexy no matter what size you are and no matter what age you are. It’s all about empowering a woman,” she revealed.

Jenn also gushed about Brandi saying, “She’s an extraordinary woman, mother, and friend.”

These two have truly been there for each other through all the highs and all of the lows. Hopefully, fans will get to see more of this beautiful friendship on season 3 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which premieres later this year on Bravo.
