You can’t ever accuse Brandi Glanville of not speaking her mind. The totally candid and often hilarious “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star just released a book, called “Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders.”
It’s no-holds-barred memoir about her marriage to actor Eddie Cibrian and their brutal breakup when he left her for country singer LeAnn Rimes. The book is currently #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list, and for good reason -- it is naughty, honest and funny, just like Brandi herself.
She spoke to FOX 411 about well, everything!
FOX 411: Last week you were on Howard Stern talking about salaries. Are you in trouble for it?
Glanville: Yes I’m in trouble. I can’t talk about it.
FOX 411: You didn’t sound very fond of your fellow “Housewives.” Are you friends with any of them?
Glanville: Kim (Richards) and I have been getting along. I’m friends with Yolanda (Foster). She’s great. I see her outside of work. We have dinner. She’s battling Lyme disease right now. She’s been a little bit under the weather.
FOX 411: Don’t you think you get criticized for saying things that the other girls say behind people’s backs?
Glanville: My mom always says that my honesty is the best thing about me and the worst thing about me. She says sometimes you just need to keep quiet but now everyone in the world gets to see what I’ve had to deal with [my] whole life.
FOX 411: How are things right now with your ex Eddie?
Glanville: They’re not good right now. We weren’t talking before the book and now their publicist is putting out all these ridiculous stories. [LeAnn] wrote a record about our breakup so why can’t I write a book about it?
FOX 411: Speaking of that, what did you make of that US magazine cover story alleging you had an affair six weeks after giving birth?
Glanville: They have to call you before publishing and ask your side of it. I went to town on them. It was all bulls**t. Do I know Harry Morton? Yes, he’s my friend. I think it was their (Eddie and LeAnn) last ditch effort to try and discredit me before the book came out.
I think it all came from their camp. By the way, if any of the stories were true they would have come out four years ago when it happened. I think they’re just making it up. It’s not true. I mean go ask the guys.
FOX 411: How is drop off with your boys?
Glanville: I pull into the driveway. Sometimes Daddy comes out. Sometimes his mom comes out. Sometimes LeAnn is in the driveway exercising, which is weird. I just stay in the car, they get out and that’s it.
FOX 411: What do you make of Adrienne (Maloof) dating Sean Stewart?
Glanville: It’s a little odd. I don’t know anything about him. Good for her. It’s odd but it’s not my business.
FOX 411: You two have had a very fiery season.
Glanville: She gets everyone to do her dirty work. She doesn’t want to get her hands dirty. She’s not that bright. That’s the problem. She has other people doing things for her because she doesn’t want to do them herself. I just don’t think there’s a lot going on with her. It’s just a fact.
FOX 411: Is it weird that you got in trouble for saying something about her that really isn’t a big deal?
Glanville: Everyone in this town knew about it. It’s been around. It’s not a secret. I just don’t like the fact that she lies about it. Why? We all know better. She has a lot of things that she lies about, and that just bugs the sh*t out of me.
FOX 411: Anything you regret writing about?
Glanville: Um no. I don’t regret it. I mean there are a lot of embarrassing details. Obviously I’m a little embarrassed to be talking about them in interviews. Sitting on ‘The View’ and talking about my vagina, it was a little embarrassing. It took me about three days to come out of hiding when that got leaked. All anyone wanted to talk about was that.
FOX 411: Are you happy you had vaginal rejuvenation surgery?
Glanville: Yeah, now looking back I am because Eddie said a couple of things that weren’t very nice and I wouldn’t want to be out in the dating world with that insecurity in my head. I mean I’m a mother of two, I’m 40, it’s not like dating is as easy as it was.
FOX 411: Are you dating anyone now?
Glanville: Well, I just broke up so it’s not great. It’s really hard. I’m on a TV show. There are guys who want to date me because I’m on a TV show and there are guys who don’t want anything to do with me because I’m on a TV show even though they might like me.
FOX 411: You’re pretty hard on LeAnn in the book.
Glanville: I don’t blame her for the affair. It takes two. I blame her for the way she acted afterwards. She was incredibly disrespectful. There’s no boundaries with her as far as my children go. I don’t believe a husband can be stolen and I put that in the book. You can’t steal someone; they have to be willing to go. It takes two. It’s just the way she acted afterwards, it was like, ‘Nah, nah, nah I got your family,’ and that’s why I think she’s very disliked.
Marriages break up all the time unfortunately but most people don’t throw it in your face. She took it out there, doing interviews, posting pictures of my kids. It’s just too much.
