Brandi Redmond Reveals She Was Suicidal After Video Of Her Mocking Asians Resurfaced!

Brandi Redmond revealed she was suicidal after a racially insensitive video where she appears to mock an Asian woman resurfaced on social media. 

During the season five premiere episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas, the redhead beauty said she checked herself in a wellness facility due to the backlash she got when the three-year-old video — which mocked Asians — resurfaced online.

“The reaction of people was to cancel me, that I was a horrible person, a horrible mother, I couldn’t say I was sorry enough,” she said in a confessional scene in this week’s episode, according to Page Six. “I went away for treatment because I was suicidal. I had so much guilt and shame that I just, I needed help.”

“I understand that I hurt people and honestly it was stupid and ignorant,” she told co-star Stephanie Hollman. “I did it in front of my children. It was horrible and I want to be a good example for my children and I was wrong.”

Redmond continued to cry, saying, “I was willing to like end my life because I didn’t — I felt that was what I should do. I’m extremely sorry for my actions and the pain I caused people. Like, I’m putting that pain back on myself and I’m ashamed and I’m sorry,” she cried in the confessional.

Later in the episode, Redmond was confronted by new cast member Dr. Tiffany Moon, who is originally from Beijing, China. “I don’t want you to think that I’m like, coming after you or attacking you or anything, but I think I would be remiss if I just sat silently, like, complicit, like, ‘This is my opportunity to stand up and say like what you did was wrong,'” Moon started. “Like, it hurt a lot of people’s feelings. It was in poor taste. You know that.”

Redmond reiterated that she was ignorant and had made a mistake.

Moon explained that her parents left for the US when she was 3 years old and that she joined them at age 6.

“I hadn’t seen them for three years,” Moon said. “I knew not a lick of English. Not a lick and I went to school and people did this thing,” she said while pulling on her eyelids, mimicking Redmond’s actions in her video.

The conversation between Redmond and Moon will continue on the next episode of RHOD, which airs Tuesday nights at 9:00pm/8c on Bravo.
