Brandi Glanville learned a lot going through her divorce from Eddie Cibrian after he cheated with LeAnn Rimes — and now she's sharing her wisdom with others. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 40, gives her three tips for surviving the heartache of being a divorcee in the March issue of Glamour magazine.
The outspoken Bravo star tells women it's okay to get some revenge. "I got a knife, and I went out to the garage. I just took it to both of his Harleys," she admits. "I hated those bikes — my dad had almost died in a motorcycle accident. I had never wanted Eddie on them, because we had children. I slashed all of the tires, and it felt so good."
Cibrian, 39, was caught having an affair with his Northern Lights costar Rimes, 30, in early 2009. Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie, 27, also came forward shortly after confessing she too had a relationship with Cibrian while he was still married to Glanville.
Glanville and Cibrian divorced in September 2010 after nearly 10 years of marriage. They now share custody of sons, Mason, 9, and Jake, 5, with Cibrian, and admits her co-parenting relationship with Rimes, whom he wed in April 2011, is rough.
"When I'm home alone on a holiday and LeAnn is tweeting pictures with my children, it breaks my heart," she says. But Glanville advises women not to "take the bait."
"Marriages break up all the time. People have affairs. Happens every day. It matters how you handle yourself after and if you're actually remorseful," she explains. "I've never found LeAnn to be remorseful. I found her to be like, 'Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, I got your family.'"
After drinking too much and crying all day, Glanville says she woke up after she got a DUI and decided to stop feeling sorry for herself. "I said to myself, 'You know what, Brandi? You have a life to live. Why are you obsessing over these two people? You know Eddie loves your children. It's time to do you.'"
