Brandi Glanville's book Drinking & Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders has only just been released, but she's already got big plans for it. The 40-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star says the tell-all book is potentially being considered for the big -- or small -- screen.
"Just had a talk about turning my book into a movie!" she tweeted. "Maybe we should pitch it to Lifetime. An unromantic comedy!"
The "Lifetime" comment is pretty obviously a reference to her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian starting an affair with his Northern Lights costar LeAnn Rimes while they were filming the Lifetime Original Movie -- and he was still married to Glanville. Cibrian and Rimes ended up divorcing their respective spouses and marrying one another, and we haven't heard the end of it since.
Despite the fact it was just meant as an insult, we actually think Drinking & Tweeting would be perfect for Lifetime. It's got ridiculous drama and funny caricatures of real people (and it definitely isn't fit for a feature film). So now the movie just needs to be cast...
Teri Hatcher as Brandi Glanville
Teri Hatcher knows a thing or two about being a Desperate Housewife on television. Since the ABC drama ended its run in 2012, Hatcher has had a bit of a dry spell in her career. What better way to give it a jump-start than by starring as Glanville, who would have been the quintessential Wisteria Lane neighbor?
Lindsay Lohan as LeAnn Rimes
Second time's the charm, right? Though Lindsay Lohan failed to impress in Lifetime's Liz & Dick, we figure Drinking & Tweeting is the perfect next role for the actress, who excels at both drinking and tweeting. If she thought she could relate to Elizabeth Taylor, just wait until she hears Rimes' sob story. If you're concerned about her being too young, well, Lohan looks way older than her 26 years.
Rob Lowe as Eddie Cibrian
If anyone could make this movie enjoyable, it's Rob Lowe. He's already charmed us in Lifetime's Drew Peterson: Untouchable and Prosecuting Casey Anthony, so why not venture into this infamous scandal as well? After all, he sort of does look like Cibrian.
