The Doctors: Brandi Glanville – Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders
The Doctors invited Brandi Glanville, author of Drinking & Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders and a star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, on the show today to talk about her book and another topic most women try to keep under wraps.
Although Brandi might have the reputation as being the bad girl on Housewives, she said in her own mind she doesn’t see it that way. She just needs to vent more often than most people. She gets out her anger with a few f-bombs and then she gets over it.
One of the biggest things she gets mad at herself about is drinking and then tweeting. She told The Doctors they need to make an app where you can’t use Twitter if you have had two glasses of wine.
Brandi Glanville Vaginoplasty
In her book, Glanville devotes almost an entire chapter to her vaginoplasty. Although many women do not talk about the procedure, Dr. Andrew Ordon said the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has seen a 64 percent increase in the procedure over the last year.
Dr. Ordon continued by saying many women have the procedure done for functionality purposes but other women have it done for cosmetic reasons.
Glanville said she opted for the surgery because she was a single mother at the age of 40 and she was getting back into the dating game. She wanted to feel confident in every aspect her body.
How Does a Vaginoplasty Work?
Dr. Ordon demonstrated with a piece of paper how a vaginoplasty works. The tissue around the area is simply sutured together and the hole becomes smaller.
The recovery is a hassle though. Glanville said she was in extreme pain for around four weeks but she didn’t mind. It had been right after her divorce and all the emotional pain she was feeling was redirected to the physical pain she was feeling. She was just happy it took her mind off the divorce.
Brandi Glanville: How Safe are Nutritional Supplements?
Brandi Glanville told The Doctors she does not eat very well because she is always on the run so she tries to get all her nutrients from supplements and she wanted to know if that was safe.
The Doctors all agreed there some crucial supplements, like a probiotic, a fish oil supplement and a folic acid supplement, but they also cautioned Brandi against taking too many supplements because it can be terrible for her health.
Dr. Stork pointed out that the supplements industry in America is the least regulated market and some of the promises put on the label are not real. There might be “studies” to say different but he said usually they are too good to be true.
Finally, The Doctors suggested she keep a list of the supplements she takes so she can tell her doctor everything she takes in case she needs to have surgery. Supplements are like medicine and when they combine with other medications. the results can be disastrous.
