Brandi Glanville, a former cast member of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” stripped down and posted a sexy selfie to Instagram this week.
Glanville joins a ton of celebrities who have posted nude or nearly nude photo on social media and she gave Kim Kardashian props for giving her the confidence to post the hot pic.
In March, Kardashian stripped down and posted a photo that left little to the imagination.
After posting the photo, Kardashian faced public backlash from other stars including Bette Midler, Piers Morgan and Chloë Grace Moretz. But, Glanville was inspired by her photo.
“I’ve struggled with wanting to post this but I’ve worked so hard on my body & at 43 after 2 kids I’m very proud. I love that @kimkardashian makes the point that moms are hot even after kids and post sexy selfies. I’ve prepped for the haters & was given the blessing of my family! Zero filters zero photo shop #ankle weights work! 💋”

Fans of Glanville immediately stood by the reality star. “Love this! Wish I brave enough @brandiglanville… Props for this shot! Nice booty! #BeProud,” one fan wrote.
Another follower wrote to Glanville, praising her positive body image, “@brandiglanville You look AMAZING and should be proud of your hard work. Screw the haters! You are stunning.”
After posting the image, Glanville spoke out about why she decided to post it in the first place. Yahoo! Celebrity reported that Glanville defended her decision to post the booty selfie on her podcast, “Brandi Glanville Unfiltered.”
Here’s the real deal,” she started. “First of all, I’m very proud of my body; I take good care of it… I was texting [this week] with somebody I used to date and he, very passive aggressively, made it known and made me very well aware that he had a lot of sexy pictures with me, so I had better be nice to him in the press.”
She told her listeners that she felt that the comment was “like passive aggressive blackmail. So I went in and looked at what I sent him, and I thought, ‘You know what? This is probably the most naked one I sent him, and I’m just going to get out in front of it, put it out there.’”
Based off of the positive reaction of her fans, it looks like her decision to post it herself went exactly how she wanted it to.
And, in case you didn’t know, the front of Brandi Glanville is pretty spectacular, too!
