Brandi Glanville knows how to hit below the belt.

Part of the “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club” cast slammed her for “weaponizing” the death of Taylor Armstrong’s ex-husband, Russell Armstrong, on Wednesday’s episode of the Peacock spinoff. 

During a heated discussion about their early days on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Taylor, 51, and Glanville, 49, argued over whether the Bravo reality show was more successful before the latter joined the cast in Season 2. 

“Were you successful? ’Cause your husband…,” Glanville spewed during a group dinner.

The camera quickly turned away as the audio was briefly cut out – an attempt from production to omit her offensive statement. 

“I don’t think that’s successful,” the “Drinking and Tweeting” author added. 

Russell committed suicide in August 2011 after his marital woes with Taylor – the mother of his now-16-year-old daughter, Kennedy – played out across several seasons of “RHOBH.” 

Taylor had filed for divorce two months prior to Russell’s death, following years of alleged domestic abuse at the hands of the businessman.

She is currently married to lawyer John Bluher, whom she wed in 2014.

Some of the “Housewives” immediately chimed in during their confessional interviews, slamming the bombshell.

“Brandi just went way too low,” Vicki Gunvalson said, while Tamra Judge opined, “Now she’s just throwing s—t.” 

Eva Marcille admitted that it was “the most disgusting” thing Glanville could say. 

And Dorinda Medley – who is also a widow after her husband, Richard Medley, died in November 2011 – asserted, “She’s weaponizing death.” 

Meanwhile, Phaedra Parks was the only one who wasn’t all that shocked. She suggested that Taylor should have expected such a vicious attack.

“Anyone throwing a rock at Brandi should expect five bullets to come back,” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum, 48, noted in her confessional. 

Back at the table, Medley, 57, asked Glanville why she mentioned Russell’s death in her verbal spat with Taylor. 

“Because she’s coming after me!” she exclaimed, gesturing to Taylor. 

But the “Hiding from Reality” author maintained that she was “not coming” for Glanville. Rather, Taylor insisted she was only trying to illustrate how her onscreen adversary negatively impacted the “Beverly Hills” dynamic back in the day.

Earlier in the scene, Taylor criticized Glanville for revealing on Season 3 that castmate Adrienne Maloof used a surrogate to welcome her twin boys, Christian and Colin, now 16, with then-husband Dr. Paul Nassif. 

“That, to me, is unforgivable. That, to me, is not Brandi’s place – as it so often is not Brandi’s place – to say things about people that have nothing to do with her,” Taylor lamented to the camera. “It’s not something that I’m going to let go of because she hurt a family and it had nothing to do with her.”

Glanville, however, said she and Maloof, 60, have since made amends. 

“Adrienne and I are cool. We text, we see each other, we’ve been fine for so long,” she explained in her own confessional interview. “Taylor who? Honestly, at this point, I forgot she was there and I feel like she’s just coming after me for a TV moment.”

“The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club” is available to stream on Peacock.
