In Season 3, Episode 4 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville admits to her ex-enemy Kim Richards that she went through a dark time following her divorce from Eddie Cibrian, and she still has a hard time sometimes.

“There are times when I will sit by myself and go into a deep dark hole and be alone in the dark because no one’s calling and saying: ‘Let’s do something’. But it’s because everyone’s married with kids,” Brandi tells Kim. “I cry and I drink, and I take [the antidepressant] Lexapro.”

Kim is in tears as Brandi tells her, “I call it like it is, but I’m not judging you because I’ve been there. I’ve been in the darkest of dark places, and I’ve done some s*** that I had to really do some soul-searching about.”

So what exactly is Lexapro, the drug that Brandi Glanville said she took? According to Drugs.com, Lexapro, or escitalopram, “is an antidepressant in a group of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).” Chemicals in the brain may become unbalanced due to depression or anxiety, and the prescription drug works to affect these chemicals in the brain.

Brandi certainly isn’t alone: Many divorcees report feelings of depression or anxiety after the breakup of their marriage.
