Brandi Glanville criticized for ‘arming’ Russell Armstrong’s death

Brandi Glanville knows how to hit below the belt.

Some of the cast of “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club” criticized her for “arming” the death of Taylor Armstrong’s ex-husband, Russell Armstrong, on Wednesday’s episode of the Peacock spin-off .

During a heated argument about their early days on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Taylor, 51, and Glanville, 49, argued over whether the Bravo reality show was more successful before the latter joined the cast in Season 2.

“Did you graduate? Because your husband…” Glanville spat during a group dinner.

The camera quickly turned away as the audio was cut out for a moment—an attempt by the production to omit its offensive statement.

“I don’t think that’s successful,” added the “Drinking and Twittering” author.

Russell committed suicide in August 2011 after his marital troubles with Taylor – the mother of his now 16-year-old daughter Kennedy – played out on several seasons of ‘RHOBH’.

Taylor had filed for divorce two months before Russell’s death, after years of alleged domestic violence at the hands of the businessman.

She is currently married to attorney John Bluher, whom she married in 2014.

Some of the “housewives” immediately agreed to their confessions and dropped the bomb.

“Brandi just went way too low,” Vicki Gunvalson said, with Tamra Judge opining, “Now she’s just throwing st.”

Eva Marcille admitted it was “the most disgusting” thing Glanville could say.

And Dorinda Medley — who is also a widow after her husband, Richard Medley, died in November 2011 — claimed, “She weapons death.”

Meanwhile, Phaedra Parks was the only one not so shocked. She suggested that Taylor should have expected such a vicious attack.

“Anyone who throws a rock at Brandi should expect five bullets to come back,” noted the 48-year-old “Real Housewives of Atlanta” in her confessional.

Back at the table, Medley, 57, asked Glanville why she mentioned Russell’s death in her verbal altercation with Taylor.

“Because she’s coming after me!” she exclaimed, gesturing to Taylor.

But the author of “Hiding from Reality” claimed she “didn’t come” for Glanville. Taylor insisted that she was only trying to illustrate how her on-screen opponent negatively affected the dynamics of “Beverly Hills” at the time.

Glanville’s attack came after she and Taylor argued about their early days on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

Earlier in the scene, Taylor criticized Glanville for revealing in Season 3 that castmate Adrienne Maloof used a surrogate to welcome her twin boys, Christian and Colin, now 16, with then-husband Dr. Paul Nassif.

“That is unforgivable for me. For me, that’s not Brandi’s place — as so often not Brandi’s place — to say things about people who have nothing to do with her,” Taylor complained to the camera. “It’s not something I’m letting go of because she hurt a family and it had nothing to do with her.”

However, Glanville said she and Maloof, 60, have been doing well since then.

“Adrienne and I are cool. We text, we see each other, we’ve been fine for so long,” she explained in her own confessional interview. “Taylor who? Frankly, at this point I forgot she was there and I feel like she’s just after me for a TV moment.

“The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club” is available to stream on Peacock.
