Eddie Cibrian's scorned ex-wife Brandi Glanville made her debut on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday -- and original castmember Lisa VanderPump was none too pleased.

After realizing that Glanville, 38, had been spending time with her former houseguest turned enemy Cedric Martinez, VanderPump, 51, admitted on-camera: "My feathers are a bit ruffled before I even start."

Flanked by her pal Martin, VanderPump approached Glanville to address the elephant in the room -- as her fellow Real Housewives looked on and laughed.

In hindsight, Glanville says she's glad "Lisa said things to my face -- although I was a bit intimated by her. I respect that so much more than behind your back gossip."

Glanville -- who arrived at Kyle Richards' charity event on crutches -- even poked fun at herself on her Bravo blog. "I do admit it is a pretty silly look to be rocking a stiletto with a crutch but I do everything in heels and a little broken leg isn't going to stop me!"

Despite being invited by Real Housewives star Adrienne Maloof, Glanville said she doesn't "think these ladies gave me a fair shake" at the party.

"I have been through an extremely hard couple of years that I wouldn't wish on any woman! My family was broken apart and I was devastated while trying to raise my two little boys as my world crumbled around me," she said, referencing her ex-husband's affair with country singer LeAnn Rimes.

"Knowing these women now, I'd like to think that if they had a little more background on my situation when we first met they would have been nicer."
