Brandi Glanville has been involved in several embarrassing displays of drunkenness that have caused concern among her co-stars. Which, of course, makes for great TV.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville might be getting an intervention for the holidays. Several of her co-stars expressed concern over her drinking in a recent episode of the popular reality series and appear to be hatching a plan for an intervention after she drunkenly snapped at cast member Joyce Giraud.

“I think she was wasted out of her mind. It’s sad, right? She’s so pretty,” said Giraud. “It’s so ugly to see such a pretty girl so wasted and slurring.” Fellow co-star Lisa Vanderpump said that when she sees Glanville boozing, “I feel almost a motherly instinct to step in and stop her drinking.”  Her co-star Kim Richards was also “growing increasingly concerned” about Glanville’s drinking last month and reportedly met with producers about holding an on-air intervention. However, Glanville has denied having a drinking problem and accused her other co-stars of lecturing her.

Last month, the reality star had to be carried out to her car after getting wildly drunk at a wine bar to celebrate her birthday. She also lost part of her dress during a booze-filled night out last July, ending with her falling down as she exited a hotel and needing to be helped out by a male friend. Glanville defended her public intoxication last July by claiming that getting drunk is “not murder” and she only accepted free drinks to be “polite.”  She later acknowledged via Twitter that she "f---ed up," but lashed out at those who criticized her behavior.

"I got drunk with my gays its not murder, everyone kept sending us drinks. I was being polite," she tweeted. "When ur PERFECT and make all the right decisions ALL [of] the time, and don't have at least a bit of cellulite on ur a--, get back 2 me."
