One of the friends Glanville is supporting is Kim Richards. Glanville became extremely close with the former child star on their Bravo reality show, and has stood by her side throughout her battle with alcoholism. 

"It's hard, because, you know, I'm a friend," Brandi said. "I'm not, you know, a sober companion. Obviously, I'm not a coach. You know, I'm there for her as a friend. I will always take her calls, and that's really all I can say about it right now."

"She is so strong," Glanville said. "She literally was in surgery for six hours ... They took out lymph nodes and all this stuff. She's already on the treadmill. She's shooting 'Housewives' ... I'm like, 'How do you do it?!' She is the strongest woman I know."

Glanville also dubbed Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman "strong." The models have been friends for years, and Glanville is offering her pal lots of support after her husband, Josh's, name showed up in the Ashley Madison data hack.

"You know, the hard thing is, whether it's true or not when it comes to the rumors -- and I believe that it's not -- going through anything in the public eye is so difficult," Glanville said. "Even if it never happened and it's all a lie, he's gonna be judged for that for the rest of his life, and she's gonna have to deal with it, and people shaking their head and going, 'Why are you with him?' And it's, it's just unfair."

"But at the end of the day, it's what we sign up for," Glanville continued. "And Kristen is a strong woman, and she will hold that family together no matter what."
