‘RHOBH’ star Brandi Glanville on broken hand: ‘I didn’t have medical insurance’

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville seems very annoyed with Lisa Vanderpump’s attempts to help her this season, as Lisa was pushing Brandi to go get help with her hand after she was injured in the gym with the ladies. However, Brandi had her reasons as to why she walked around with a broken hand. According to a new Bravo report published on Jan. 28, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville is now revealing that she walked around with a broken hand because she didn’t have medical insurance.

“ had my friend who is a MMA fighter and boxer wrap it for me,” Brandi reveals. “I did not go to the doctor for a few reasons. First, I barely had any time to -- and second I didn't have medical insurance at the time. I had been trying for the last year to get medical coverage, but had been turned down because of a pre-existing condition. I have two little boys to take care of and I didn't want to waste my money on myself and have yet another reason to be turned down for insurance.”

She has now revealed that she did get insurance later on, but her decision to not get medical help did influence how her hand healed itself. “I now have medical insurance, and, yes, my hand did heal a little deformed. My best friend drove up from San Diego, thank goodness, because with my right hand broken I couldn't really do my hair or makeup, and so I got a helping hand from my girls.”

Do you think she should just have been honest with the ladies to avoid the pressure?
