Are you serious, Brandi Glanville? As much as we all love the outspoken ‘RHOBH’ star, when she said she ‘wanted to be molested as a child’ during an episode of her podcast, we were shocked and disgusted. There is definitely a line, and Brandi just crossed it.
Brandi Glanville dropped an offensive bombshell while filming her appropriately titled podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star said that she wished she had been molested as a child, and that she regretted that she had been “passed over” by a predator. Yes, you read that all correctly. Brandi apologized for her tasteless joke, but not without causing outrage with her comments.
Brandi Glanville’s Child Molestation Joke: ‘RHOBH’ Star Says She Was ‘Passed Over’
Brandi entertained her podcast episode guests, comedians Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine, with a terribly offensive joke about child molestation.
“I was actually stalking you online, Jim, and we have something in common! I, too, wanted to be molested as a child and was passed up,” she told Jim during the show, reported Fox News.
Brandi explained that she had a brush with molestation in her past. “My sister got felt up by a principal, and nothing for me. He didn’t even look at me sideways,” she said.
Jim indulged Brandi in her joke by asking, “Did you feel hurt by that?”
Brandi joked that she was upset she wasn’t molested. “Yeah. Now looking back, I’m super-bummed,” she said. “I was thinking, ‘All this and nothing?’ Super-hot and they passed me up!”
