Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Who Is Brandi Glanville, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Newest Addition?

It's official! Brandi Glanville is a go to join Season 2 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Trying to explain why Brandi is semi-famous is a bit like playing six degrees of separation: Brandi is the ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian, an actor — best known for his roles on Third Watch and Invasion — who met LeAnn Rimes on the set of Lifetime movie Northern Lights. Despite being already married (Eddie Cibrian to Brandi and LeAnn Rimes to Dean Sheremet), Eddie and LeAnn fell in lurve, and Cibrian and Glanville divorced in September 2010 after almost 10 years of marriage. Only a few months later, in April 2011, LeAnn and Eddie tied the knot.

Clearly, Brandi is no stranger to dramz, but who is she, deep down, as a person?

Brandi is a mom

Brandi and Eddie are the parents of two little boys, 7-year-old Mason and 3-year-old Jake. Now that Brandi and Eddie have gone their separate ways, the newest Housewife has been rumored to be none-too-pleased that country crooner LeAnn is playing mommy to her kids.

She likes to tweet… at LeAnn Rimes

Okay, maybe this is the Hollywood version of going on Jerry Springer to air your grievances at the woman who stole your hubby, but tweeting your dissatisfaction @LeAnnRimes is still pretty awkward and very public.

@leannrimes I told Eddie to please tell you that I think it is highly inappropriate for you to sing in my sons class on Friday. Boundries!! … It's Mason's week share his family with the class. it isn't ur place.Let Eddie read a script. You are not his parent. RESPECT!

The two eventually quashed their Twitter beef and took it offline:

As a collective unit, Brandi and I would like all negativity to cease toward one another. We have communicated and have a direct understanding that we are ONLY ourselves on Twitter and have no other accounts that try to destroy one another. Please for our families' sake stop the hate now and let us live OUR lives. We don't need opinions or outside help in order for that to happen.
LeAnn and Brandi

But hey, she also tweets @AdrienneMaloof, so that has to count for something.

She has something in common with Camille’s friend Dedra Whitt

Remember Camille’s buddy D.D., who would nod along to everything Ms. Grammer said with a vengeance? Well, she’s more than just a yes woman: She’s also an makeup artist. And so is Brandi! We smell a powder-off.

She needs a man

A touch of the spring fever/twitterpation must have gotten into Brandy, because on May 1, she tweeted, “I am hanging with my guy friends, deciding if I should make out with one of them. Seriously... I need a hot make out session.” Hey, at least her dating life will be more exciting than Kim’s.

She also needs a chauffeur

Back in October of 2010, Brandi was charged with a DUI, according to TMZ. She pled not guilty to the charges in January 2011. Drunk driving is always bad news, but it’s not like the Housewives are the soberest bunch of broads. But Brandi had more car trouble in late April when she got into an accident, which the other driver is suing her for over damages. Apparently, she was on the phone with ex Eddie at the time. We’re sure the other members of the RHoBH will clue her in: This is what limos are for!

Cedric could crash at her pad

If none of the other scintillating deets about Brandi have won you ever, there’s always the fact that she’s often seen palling around with none other than semi-permanent houseguest Cedric Martinez. Yep. "He's my gay best friend! I've known him for 16 years. We modeled together back in Milan and Paris and London back in the day," gushed Brandi not too long after Lisa Vanderpump revealed that her former friend was pretty much scum. Ugh, we really do not want any awkward pool parties at Brandi’s place next season.

How do you feel about Brandi Glanville joining the cast? Do you think Bravo is stepping up the drama or lowering the class? Let us know in the comments!
