Born on November 16, 1972 in Salinas, California, Brandi Glanville is probably best known for her appearances on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and the drama surrounding her life post-divorce from actor Eddie Cibrian. She described herself on Twitter in 2013 as “I’m a great mother and friend.”
Brandi Glanville got her start as a fashion model at the age of 16, when she moved to Paris and began her career. For the next seventeen years, she worked, appearing in the pages of magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Glamour, and walking runways for designers including Chanel, Gucci and Armani.
Brandi Glanville married Eddie Cibrian in 2001 and they had two sons, Mason Edward and Jake Austin. But after Eddie Cibrain had an affair with his co-star LeAnn Rimes, Brandi filed for divorce. The divorce was finalized in 2010. Brandi is quoted as saying, “I was married to the number one douchebag of all time.” Brandi said of LeAnn rimes: “I don’t find her stable and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there…LeAnn has a severe eating disorder. She has a [laxative] in every purse. Mason found one on the floor and thought it was a Skittle.”
Brandi later joined the second season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” She told shape.com, “People have said horrible things like I’m ‘plastic’ and I’m a bad mom. I think after three years of hearing it I have just developed a thick skin…I know what they say isn’t true, so I’ve learned not to take it to heart.”

Brandi added, “Having grown up modeling, I’m very self-aware of my physical appearance. It’s hard to grow older, especially in this town where everyone is perfect! They’re all 20 years old and gorgeous and I’m now in the same dating pool as them, yikes, it’s really hard! This town makes you insecure.”
Brandi also wrote a book, “Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders,” released in February 2013. The book is a take on her use of Twitter. A second book – a cookbook – is being planned. She also designed her own clothing line, Brand B, exclusively for Amazon.com.
Brandi’s hobbies include dancing, cooking, golfing, Pilates, and staying active in her charities.
