Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville has been extremely vocal throughout the years about the hurt and betrayal she experienced when she found out her husband of nine years Eddie Cibrian was cheating on her with several women.
And this is no exception.
In a video posted on Wednesday, the reality TV star talked to William Shatner on Ora TV‘s Brown Bag Wine Tasting where she opens up about her past marriage.
The 42-year-old said:
“He had extra girlfriends, I guess you can say. He had some ladies on the side.”
Most notably, The Playboy Club actor was romantically linked to Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie and of course, his current wife LeAnn Rimes.
When asked if she ever tried to forgive the thespian:
“I tried but when I found out there was more than a couple, I decided I was better off on my own.”
In fact, after learning about the cheating, the Bravolebrity went through a dark period of grief.
“It’s almost like a death. You mourn, you die a little bit. Who you were as a wife and a mother, you’re no longer that person.”
While she now realizes that she was not to blame for Cibrian’s infidelity, the author went through a phase of insecurity and body shaming.
“It took me about a year to figure out that it had nothing to do with me. But it took a while… I was wondering how I could be any better than I was. Was I not tall enough? Skinny enough? Are my boobs not big enough? Should I have blue eyes? It was all of that.”
However, she has only grown stronger from this experience:
“It made me a better person to go through that├óΓé¼┬ª And to figure out that it had nothing to do with me.”
We applaud Brandi for her honesty and we’re so glad she’s in a better place!
