Well this is good to hear!
It seems Brandi Glanville is in a good place since leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, even though she is still in legal hot water over a very… fishy… lawsuit.

Speaking to reporters this week, Glanville discussed her mental state after leaving RHOBH, sharing how much of a weight off her shoulder it is not to film the show any more:
"I'm cutting back on my antidepressants, I wake up with a smile, there's a stress that goes with it and I don't have it any more. I'm so happy and carefree. I talked to Yolanda [Foster] and she's like ‘oh, it's so stressful,' and I'm like, I know!"
Talking about her show-related stress, Glanville discussed how pushing the envelope was a necessity for her to keep the show — and her job — alive:
"I feel like I was doing everything for the sake of making good TV, whether I was being loved or hated, I, unlike the other women, I needed the job. They were rich anyways. I was there and like, something needed to happen, or we didn't have a show. What can I do?!"
And she was no stranger to good TV on RHOBH! So much so that — love her or hate her — a lot of the audience will miss her on future episodes.
On that, Brandi spoke about leaving the show while hinting at a possible comeback:
"They've asked me to leave the door open, Bravo was my home, they saved my life. I would never say no I'm not coming back 100%, it was a mutual decision. It wasn't like OK bye! I didn't want to do it, but at the same time with Kim not doing it, and Yolanda being ill and not doing it as much, I really don't like the other women. I feel like I'm going through a break up almost, but I feel fresh and clean."
In the meantime, she's got other TV projects on her plate, too. Yay!!

Brandi teased those projects just like a reality TV veteran would:
"I can't say exactly what I'm doing. I'm not leaving. I'll be here. There's two different things I'm doing for TV, that's all I can really say. It's reality-based. But I won't have to be around people I wouldn't normally hang out with and have to throw wine!"
Brandi may have some crazy things going on in her life — like that lawsuit — but at least she's in a better mental place now without filming RHOBH!
What do U think — will U miss her on the show? Are U going to follow her wherever new projects take her?!
