The CSI: Miami star’s marriage to Glanville, the mother of his two sons, broke down after he struck up an affair with Rimes on the set of TV movie Northern Lights in 2009. Rimes also left her then-husband Dean Sheremet and married Cibrian in 2011.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Glanville has now revealed she cheered herself up after the messy split by undergoing an intimate operation, and paying for it on her former partner’s credit card.
In her new tell-all book, Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders, she writes, “This pretty intense surgery had an even more intense price tag: $12,000. A brand-new vagina would be an Eddie-free vagina… I decided that since Eddie had ruined my vagina for me, he could pay for a new one. I gave (the doctor’s office) Eddie’s credit card number.”
In the tome, Glanville also details the moment she first suspected her then-husband was having an affair with his TV co-star: “LeAnn had ‘accidentally’ smeared some cake frosting on her top (she was still a bigger girl and completely flat-chested at the time) and asked my husband, not realising that I was standing behind the both of them, if he wanted lick it off her. This woman asked my husband if he wanted to eat the frosting mess she’d dropped on her non-existent chest? He hadn’t realised I was there, either, and he laughed with hungry eyes at the suggestion.”
Glanville also reveals she struggled financially after the breakdown of her marriage, and began drinking too much as she attempted to forget her problems: “I was a jobless, homeless, mother of two living out of her $1,200-a-month SUV and couch-surfing from one hospitable friend to the next. After my divorce – even with the help of Lexapro (anti-depressant prescription drug) – I fell into a bit of a tailspin (and an eventual DUI arrest). White wine became my constant shoulder to lean on.”
