“It was kind of difficult for me,” Brandi added. “I didn’t what to do…if I wanted to come back or if I needed to come back. My grandmother is my life. It was difficult knowing they were going to start filming in December as well. When I decided to come back, it was in January, they were begging me to come back. The show was not going as they hoped and [they said] ‘we really need you back.’ I don’t know, I went and I regret going back.” It was even tougher when having awkwardness with her co-stars, since she didn’t expect it. “When I left off with the ladies, we were cool,” Brandi explained.
