Brandi Glanville is clearly a proponent of the "If you’ve got it, flaunt it" rule. And she's definitely got it. She proved as much during a private photo shoot in Beverly Hills, Calif., earlier this month, when she paraded poolside in a bikini.

In a series of suggestive shots, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 40, showed off her slim, sexy physique in a super-skimpy aqua and gold halter-style top with matching bottoms. The suit highlighted her washboard abs, long legs, and ample cleavage, leaving very little to the imagination.

Glanville has never been shy about putting herself out there. In April, she walked the blue carpet at the Bravo Upfronts in New York City wearing a red lace mini-dress cut to her navel. And in February, she made headlines for her Oscar gown -- a slit-to-there flesh-colored mermaid dress that seemed a size or two too small.

And she's not just bold about her body. She also speaks openly about her personal life and wrote a book, Drinking and Tweeting, about relationships -- including her marriage to ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, who famously cheated on her with singer (and current wife) LeAnn Rimes.

Rimes, of course, is no slouch in the bikini department, either. Though in the past she has come under fire for her pin-thin frame, the 30-year-old country crooner has been showing off a healthier, sexier figure since going to rehab last summer. In January, for example, she flaunted her fit figure in a cute red bandeau bikini top and matching bottoms.

"People said I was [anorexic], but I didn't have a problem with eating, as I ate a ton all the time -- I could eat my husband under the table!" she told the U.K.'s Daily Mail recently. "But I was going through a time when I just wasn't sleeping -- my mind wouldn't shut off and my heart was breaking."

"Now I'm secure about my body, although I'm like any other woman and have my moments of self-doubt. But it's nice to have a husband who tells you you're beautiful all the time," she gushed. "I'll say to him, 'I've gained a few pounds,' and he'll say, 'Good!'"
