Brandi Glanville's return to RHOBH was awkward and unnecessary

Passionate about dance, Stephanie's love of reality television and celebrity entertainment began with "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance." She has since discovered the wonders of the "Real Housewives," the Kardashia...

Brandi Glanville's return to RHOBH was more just a slap in her face than a throwback to the season

When I learned that Brandi Glanville would be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a guest, I assumed that her return would mimic that of Kim Richards but without the sister-bonding moment. With Richards, we had the opportunity to take a closer look into (as Yolanda Foster would call it) her journey, which has included a few bumps in the road. Her appearances actually added something to the show. Unfortunately, I can't say the same of Glanville's brief forays into this season's insane drama.

Things were promising when Brandi Glanville returned for a chat with Foster, but nothing really came of it. I then hoped that she would inject a little non-Munchausen drama into the reunion, and while she certainly tried, the approach was all wrong.
Instead of joining the Housewives in person, Glanville filmed a special message for them. Clearly, the goal of this message was to rile everybody up. Ordinarily, that's what Glanville does best, but it's just not as effective in video form. To be fair, her insults were on point. She accurately referred to Lisa Rinna as "nuts" and pointed out how two-faced Kyle Richards can be. She was as sassy as ever, reminding some viewers why they've missed her so much this season. Most, however, did not appreciate Glanville's return.
The real problem with Glanville's video is that it lacked context. It was just a random assortment of insults with no real purpose beyond pissing people off. It would have been much better to have her there in person for a brief period. Then she could have offered her opinion on various topics, including Kim Richards' recovery, Erika Girardi's quarrel or, yes, the never-ending Munchausen drama.

The good (and surprising) thing is that the other gals failed to respond to Glanville's bait. Given how easy it usually is to enrage this group of women, Glanville's video could have launched some major retaliation. However, the Housewives' eagerness to speak back was probably tempered by the fact that they wouldn't get a response from Glanville, except perhaps on Twitter weeks after filming.

Rumors indicate that Glanville may return to RHOBH in search of a paycheck. Hopefully, if she does return, her presence will be more entertaining than her sad attempt at reunion pot stirring.
