Brandi Glanville’s popularity may have waned after last season, but she will definitely be back for the next season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, according to RadarOnline.

Brandi had a controversial previous season when she seemed to have a vendetta agenda against fan favorite (and Andy Cohen favorite) Lisa Vanderpump. Not to mention the racist comments she made toward her castmate Joyce Giraud and the racial comments she made to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore in the aftermath.

A lot of fans tried to make their voices heard by starting an online petition to get Brandi fired, but apparently it didn’t stick.

“Brandi will absolutely be back for another season,” an inside source told RadarOnline.”There were rumors that she didn’t want to do it anymore, or that certain cast members were vying to get her off the show, but she really loves doing it and will return.”

The insider also indicated that money was a big factor when Brandi was making her decision whether to return or not.

“She needs the money. It’s not like she has another job,” the insider said. “Her books and stuff do well, but she’s got two boys and a certain lifestyle to support. She likes the money and notoriety that come along with being on the Real Housewives.”

Since Brandi is returning, it remains to be seen if Lisa Vanderpump will return as well. It’s been rumored that she didn’t want to return if Brandi wasn’t fired.

“Brandi denies and denies her behavior — and all I can do is throw my arms up and walk away. It’s not worth the pettiness,” Lisa told RadarOnline. “If you’d asked me weeks ago, I would have said no way in hell; but that would be quite immature of me. [Forgiveness] would take a lot.”

Last week, it was announced that two cast members had been cut already. First timers Joyce Giraud and Carlton Gebbia won’t be returning for a second season. But there has been no official statement from Bravo regarding next season’s cast.
