(FOX) — Brandi Glanville has admitted she’s a bit of a clean freak when it comes to keeping her house germ-free amid the coronavirus.
The 47-year-old reality star discussed her health and hygiene habits with actress Becca Tobin on her “Unfiltered” podcast on Friday when she confessed to a potentially dangerous habit she’s taken up in quarantine.
“I don’t really care. I ingest so many different pills,” Glanville said while the two were discussing chemicals found in various cleaning products. “I spray bleach on my children…because you can’t buy rubbing alcohol anywhere so I diluted some bleach and water and everyone gets a little spray spray.”
While it’s unclear if the television personality was joking, Glanville’s surprising revelation comes weeks after President Trump ignited a media firestorm for indirectly suggesting that household disinfectants, like bleach, could be used as a treatment for the novel coronavirus.
Trump insisted he was being “sarcastic” but his comments prompted the makers of Lysol to release a statement warning against the improper use of disinfectant products.
“As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route),” the Reckitt Benckiser Group said. “As with all products, our disinfectant and hygiene products should only be used as intended and in line with usage guidelines. Please read the label and safety information.”
Glanville said she had just moved out of a home that had a mold issue. She hinted that the experience may have caused her to become obsessed with various cleaning supplies as she “might have an addiction to fabric softener.”
“I have the softest towels and I smell like a baby and they’re so good,” she said.
The former full-time cast member of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” shares sons Mason, 16, and Jake, 13, with her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian. Glanville revealed she and Cibrian don’t exactly see eye to eye when it comes to co-parenting in quarantine.
“I told them they could skip school,” she told Tobin of her two boys. “Their dad’s a d–k and he told me, ‘Why are they missing classes at your house?’ I said, ‘Because I don’t want their eyes to get hurt from the blue screen time.'”
“I’m like the fun, crazy one and he’s like the boring one that makes sure they do their homework. I’m like, ‘That’s on you. Nobody made sure I did mine. I do everything else for them. I’m not doing their homework for them too.’ Plus, I can’t,” she said with a laugh.
Despite her ability to lay down the law at home, Glanville aired her frustrations about the coronavirus pandemic in mid-March when she ran out of toilet paper.
“My household is officially out of toilet paper,” the 47-year-old tweeted.
The mother of two shared she went out to “five markets” but had no luck.
“There is none,” said the Los Angeles TV personality. “Stop hoarding.”
