“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville has had a rough year, especially since she lost her dog and had to deal with her father’s stubborn attitude when it came to her Oscar dress scandal. But it sounds like Brandi self-medicated to deal with the pain. According to a new Radar Online report published on Jan. 22, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville is now revealing that she did drink and take pills to deal with the pains of her horrible year.

Family is everything to me, and when we are not OK, I am not OK… My dad overthinks everything — and I don’t think about things enough. He and I have always butted heads, but we usually resolved things right away,” she revealed in a message about her life. “He had heart surgery in the past, and his heart now seem to be relapsing to the point he would need surgery again. He couldn’t even walk across a room with(sic) getting out of breath. For my dad, who is a very active person, this was very depressing,” she recalled about her father’s health.

“I tried my hardest to make up with him to no avail, and I felt very alone. My dad is the only man in my life that I’ve always been able to count on and now he was gone. I was sad,” she revealed. She shared this pain on the show. “And then Chica went missing and I fell into an even darker place. When my kids would leave to go to their dad’s, I felt that sadness I felt during my divorce creeping back up on me. I definitely leaned on the neck of a bottle of wine or two when I was feeling lost and alone,” she added. “Thank God I’m back on my happy pill and in a much better place now.”

It sounds like she was using drugs to deal with her issues and getting past the pain. Are you surprised that she is so honest?
