Brandi Glanville has had her share of public embarrassments — Eddie Cibrian's affair with LeAnn Rimes, anyone? — but she's learned how to shrug them off effortlessly! Speaking to Andy Cohen at Watch What Happens Live! in Austin, Tex. — where WWHL is filming all week for SXSW — the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was noticeably chill about her former fling Gerard Butler's recent admission.
Glanville, 40, told Cohen that she felt "vindicated" by the actor's confessional chat with Howard Stern — in which the Olympus Has Fallen star admitted that he and Glanville slept together for a "one-afternooner," but then forgot the reality star's name during a quick chat with a photographer.
"We had a little texting today, and I think he's a doll and I feel bad for what I said," Glanville told Cohen – who previously over shared with the Bravo emcee about her fling with Butler, praising his talents as a lover.
"He is lovely and I appreciate him making it right," the Drinking and Tweeting author continued.
Butler himself confirmed that he and Glanville reconnected. "I said one, 'I'm not very happy you did that because there are certain things you keep a little private.' And two, 'I'm sorry I said I didn't know who you were!'" recalled Butler, whose previous hookups include Jessica Biel and Jennifer Aniston.
During her SXSW talk, Glanville also sounded off on her omnipresent nemesis Rimes, suggesting she's ready to call a permanent cease fire: "She said there's a lot of lies [in my book] . . . There's not, otherwise I would have lawyers, letters and whatnot happening. I don't know. This is the last time I want to speak poorly about her!"
