Let’s take it back to 2009. Ex-model and mom of two boys, Brandi Glanville was divorcing z-list actor, Eddie Cibrian. Eddie starred in the 1997 night-time soap, Sunset Beach, which catapulted his career into nothingness for a decade. Finally, in 2009 he got a role in a Lifetime Television adaptation of a Nora Roberts’ book, which would actually put his name in (northern) lights. That’s only because it was on this set that he met LeAnn Rimes, who was married to Dean Sheremet at the time.
The two started an affair and Brandi was made aware of it by the tabloids. Turns out Eddie was a serial cheater, having relations with Scheana Marie, who would go on later to star in Vanderpump Rules. Post-divorce, in 2011, Brandi appeared as a friend of Lisa Vanderpump on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where she would carry the show for years in spite of getting a fair paycheck only talk about the affair, go on to write a book about the affair, and talk crap about them on twitter. Regardless, Brandi’s story in Bravoland has always been tied to the cheating husband, LeAnn, and Scheana. Now, she’s starting to re-write the narrative.
As reported by Us Weekly, Brandi recently made a podcast appearance on Hollywood Raw with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn. She shared there that “the truth is LeAnn and I get along really well.” No, seriously. Brandi said, “I think our kids had a lot to do with it because the kids love when we’re all together, and it’s so obvious.”
Brandi did say that certain friends of hers are “still mad” at Eddie and LeAnn, but she tells them, “if I can deal with this, you guys need to get over it.” She also added, “I guess I just forget s–t. I’m just fine with it.” History tells us otherwise. But still, good for Brandi for growing past this feud.
“Eddie’s going to be in my life for the rest of my life. We bicker still like we’re married when we’re not. We’re like sister wives. It’s me and LeAnn and Eddie,” Brandi said about their relationship today. In fact, they’ve all been spending more time together in the last year.
This time is dedicated to holidays mostly and now birthdays. “Usually we spend the holidays together, like Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, but I’ve never been invited to Eddie’s birthday [which was on Wednesday], because, ‘Why would you want your ex-wife at your f—king birthday?’ I mean, there’s no point,” Brandi shared. “But then yesterday, I got invited to his birthday by LeAnn. And then my son actually said, ‘Well, dad didn’t invite you for sure.’”

This sort of peace has been a long time coming. For the sake of the kids and themselves, they’re all doing the right thing. But when it comes to Brandi– any little thing may throw this newfound tranquility in the gutter.
