“I’m disappointed to know when this happened,” she told host Andy Cohen on the “RHOD” special that aired Tuesday night. “It was in Las Vegas during a double bachelorette party for my sister and my brother-in-law.
She then added “Yep, I’m extremely disappointed,” before bursting into tears as her teammates watched helplessly.
The video, which Brandi says was filmed in 2018, started surfacing in March and features a man who appears to be Bryan with his arms wrapped around another woman at a club, bringing him in at one point for a kiss.
Cohen asked Brandi if she was planning on staying with her high school sweetheart Bryan – whom she has been married to since 2003. They have four children: They have four children: daughters Brinkley, 9, Brooklyn, 11, and Brilynn, 2 months old, and a son, Bruin, 2 years old.
“I’ll tell you, you know, it was the craziest year and the darkest hour,” Redmond said, crying.
“This man was there for me and is there for me, so I feel like I would really be a piece of shit if I didn’t, you know, being there for him because he’s in too much pain in this. moment.
Brandi said the worst part of the debacle is that a fan uploaded the video to one of their daughters’ private Instagram accounts for her to see.
“As much as I can be mad and stuff like, it’s her dad and I just feel like it’s just… not right,” she cried.
Brandi, 42, appeared in the video chat session as she sat next to Kary Brittingham on the flight from Dallas to New York City, and Brittingham, 50, tested positive for coronavirus upon arrival in the Big Apple.
Her castmates have all expressed their support for Brandi. Her best friend, Stephanie Hollman, told Cohen that while she hadn’t spoken directly to Bryan about the video, she was angry with his behavior.
“She’s been through so much,” she says. “I was really terrified that she would do something, so I had a good friend of mine. [check on her] … Because I said to myself: “You have to go see her because I can’t reach her”, because each of us was traveling more or less. It was spring break.
“And then he said he walked into the baby’s room, it was dark and she was sitting in the corner, just holding her baby and screaming and it broke my heart.” Like absolutely broken my heart.
Brandi concluded by saying that she believed someone had brought the video into the world again to hurt her, with some of her co-stars suggesting Leanne Locken as the culprit. Locken has denied any involvement on social media.
Earlier in the episode, Redmond broke down her pregnancy timeline with Brilynn, explaining that she gave birth in February, which meant she was pregnant – and drinking – throughout the season.
“We started filming and I was probably maybe two weeks pregnant,” Brandi said. “And by the time I found out I was pregnant, I was out of my first trimester, so yeah.
Brandi added that she found out that she was pregnant during her annual gynecological visit and that her pregnancy was a “miracle” because she was previously told she was premenopausal and the chances of her getting pregnant again. were thin.
“She walked in and she told me that – she was like, ‘You came back positive that you’re pregnant.’ So she does the scan of my belly and I see a baby on the screen and I have a complete panic attack and my doctor says to me, “Brandi, this is amazing! It’s a miracle! But I have to ask, isn’t it Bryan’s? And I was like, ‘What? No! It’s Bryan’s! And she said, “Okay, I was just making sure because you look upset about it.” “
Brandi then explained to her doctor that she was not taking proper care of herself or her baby, but luckily Brilynn was born healthy.
