Before stirring up drama on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and becoming embroiled in a divorce drama, Brandi Glanville spent 17 years traveling the world as a high fashion runway and print model. After moving to Paris at 16 and signing with Elite, the blonde appeared in magazines like “Cosmopolitan” and “Glamour” and worked runways for couture design houses Armani, Chanel and Gucci. She married Eddie Cibrian (“CSI: Miami”) in May 2001 and the couple have two sons Mason and Jake. Eight years in, rumors swirled about Cibrian’s two affairs — one with waitress Scheana Marie and one with actress/singer LeAnn Rimes. Glanville initially stood by her man and attended couple counseling, but Cibrian and Rimes went public the week after she’d left her husband. She didn’t let betrayal keep her down long. She joined the cast of “RHOBH” in the second season and her tantrums and drunken antics with Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof have been legendary. She recently became a published author with “Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders” (2013)n , which was no. 8 on the New York Times Bestseller List. A movie based on the memoir is being developed.
