Brandi Glanville Fighting 'Demons' After Drunken Photographs, Says Source

Friends close to Brandi Glanville are concerned the reality star is on a downward spiral after photos surfaced on Monday showing Glanville extremely intoxicated, being assisted by a male acquaintance.

"Brandi has a lot going on right now, and anyone close to her and really knows her well, knows that Monday night wasn't funny at all," a source close to Glanville told Radar Online.

"We're all seriously concerned for her right now. It's bad. Something like Monday night can't happen again," the source added.

The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, 40, was photographed stumbling outside of the London Hotel in West Hollywood on Monday. While she admitted to being drunk, the reality TV star lashed out at critics for being judgmental, according to Daily Mail UK which published the explicit photos.

Those close to the situation are concerned that if she continues on her current path they see the worst possible outcome for her.

"She's an amazing mother and is hardworking with a successful career, so we just don't want her small demons to take her down," the source continued.

The single mom has had much to celebrate in recent months, particularly the success of her best-selling book entitled "Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders." Despite this, she admitted to having had "a lot on my plate," recently which prompted her night out.

"I forgot that my every move was watched...honestly have a lot on my plate and needed to let my hair down, but not my dress," she wrote in a series of tweets.

"When ur PERFECT and make all the right decisions ALL time, and don't gave at least a bit of cellulite on ur b---, get back to me," she wrote to critics.

Fans are questioning whether Glanville's ongoing feud with troubled singer LeAnn Rimes may have led to her feeling overwhelmed in recent weeks. The reality TV star, who shares two sons with her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, has been embroiled in a bitter feud with Rimes, his new wife, over their 2009 affair.
