Brandi Glanville has never shared much of her story after her very public split with Eddie Cibrian, until she started promoting her book, Drinking And Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders. Brandi promises that after the promotional tour for her book is over she will never speak of Eddie or LeAnn publicly again. Brandi sat down withÂ Glamour MagazineÂ to reveal some of the major lessons she learned during Eddie’s affair and her public divorce.
1.Â â€œGet a little revengeâ€
“First, I called Eddieâ€™s mom. We were very close. I had nursed her through an illness. She basically lived with us. I said, â€œThereâ€™s more than just LeAnn. Iâ€™mâ€¦Iâ€™m not OK.â€ And I got a knife, and I went out to the garage. I just took it to both of his Harleys. I hated those bikesâ€”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. I called his mom back and told her, â€œI want you to know, I just killed Eddieâ€™s motorcycles.â€ And she was like, â€œThank God.â€ That night when Eddie got home, I said, â€œIâ€™m going to move into a hotel for a week, and you need to get out of this house.â€ At this point, I felt he was a very hands-off father. We had a nanny who lived with us, and it was mostly she and I raising our children. He was like, â€œI love youâ€” Iâ€™ll do anything.â€ And I said, â€œIf it had been one person [you cheated with], it wouldâ€™ve been different.â€ After that I left for the hotel. He refused to move out. He wouldnâ€™t let go of us. And Iâ€™m like, â€œYou donâ€™t get to have your cake and eat it too. Iâ€™m done.”
2. â€œTry not to take the baitâ€
“When Iâ€™m home alone on a holiday and LeAnn is tweeting pictures with my children, it breaks my heart. One way I hear from LeAnn is sheâ€™ll text meâ€”hurtful things like, â€œI canâ€™t wait to make your kids lunches and go to soccerâ€¦.â€ Marriages break up all the time. People have affairs. Happens every day. It matters how you handle yourself after and if youâ€™re actually remorseful. Iâ€™ve never found LeAnn to be remorseful. I found her to be like, â€œNah-nah-nah-nah-nah, I got your family.â€
3. â€œLimit the wallowingâ€
“My heartache probably lasted a lot longer than it should have, because in the old days, you broke up with someone, you never saw â€™em again. Youâ€™re not seeing pictures of how in love they are. I started to drink too much. I would cry all day. I began taking an antidepressant. I got a DUI and realized I needed to wake up and let go. I said to myself, â€œYou know what, Brandi? You have a life to live. Why are you obsessing over these two people? You know Eddie loves your children. Itâ€™s time to do you.â€
