Eddie Cibrian and Brandi Glanville Officially Divorced. He reports to be much happier with his second wife. The divorce was publicly messy and it became a social media war involving the children.
In 2011, Glanville was introduced by an acquaintance, Adrienne Maloof, in Season Two of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Glanville originally appeared on the series as a "Friend of the Housewives" in the Episode Four of Season Two. Maloof introduced her to the cast at a party, "Brandi's going through a divorce and I wanted to show her a good time."  The meeting got off to a rocky start: Lisa Vanderpump was immediately suspicious of Glanville because of Glanville's association with Vanderpump's enemy and former houseguest Cedric Martinez; cast members ridiculed Glanville for donning a high heeled shoe while on crutches at a charity cocktail event.
In the Seventh Episode, the relationship between Glanville and the Richards sisters began its descent with Kim and Kyle acting stuck up and giving Brandi the cold shoulder as they spent most of their night in the bathroom. Brandi made a crack about Kim's addiction problems. When word got back to the Richards' the two attacked her. One of their grievances, besides her choice of footwear, being that Glanville's toddler had urinated in Adrienne's yard during a children's pool party. Glanville defended herself by questioning Kim's mental state, as she was an alcoholic at the time, pushing Kyle's finger out of her face while she was on crutches, and accusing Kim of doing "crystal meth in the bathroom.
Glanville also appeared in the three-part reunion. During the reunion it was exposed that Lisa Vanderpump, Camille Grammer, and Brandi had become close friends. It is here that the initial issues between Maloof, Vanderpump, and Granville emerge.
Bravo announced on April 29, 2012 that Camille Grammer would not return for Season Three and that Glanville would take her place as an official Housewife. In October 2012 it was announced Brandi was an "official Housewife" for Season 3 to air in November.
Season 3 commences with pre-existing tension between Adrienne and Brandi as well as between Adrienne and Lisa.
In the Sixth Episode, Brandi reveals some very 'personal' information about Adrienne. Bravo edits out the content, leaving viewers to google online to determine what was said via gossip sites. One of the rumors was that Adrienne used a surrogate to have her twin sons. Adrienne finds out her private family business had been exposed before Mauricio's, a realtor, hosts a party. The Nassifs confront Glanville at the party.
In the Seventh Episode of Season Three, before a dinner party at Kyle Richards, Brandi is again questioned and does not express remorse regarding a personal revelation about Adrienne. Faye Resnick confronts Glanville questioning Glanville's actions, personality and motives. Resnicks' then simplistic advice was for Brandi to send flowers to Adrienne, an obviously simple gesture of apology. Brandi left the party.
In the ninth episode of season 3, Brandi discovers her name is on a cease & desist letter sent to a mutal friend and dishonestly tells Kyle and Yolanda that Adrienne is "suing her." She announces this to the rest of the group during restaurant dinner party. The group discusses Adrienne's use of a lawsuit, when in season 2 she had personally disapproved of such behavior when stating that 'Friends don't sue friends.' when responding to Russell serving a lawsuit to Camille for statements Camille made. A verbal confrontation occurs between Mauricio and Brandi about how Brandi should first initiate reconciliation, leading Brandi to break down in a screaming and profanity laced tirade. Then Mauricio and Ken debate back and forth regarding Brandi's motive to reveal the information in the first place. Lisa chimes and cites when Adrienne made disparaging slanderous statements about Lisa during the Season 2 reunion. It is speculated Lisa put Brandi up to revealing Adrienne's personal life The fight then continues back and forth with Mauricio and Brandi.
In the eleventh episode, Brandi hosts Night School 4 Girls class in Las Vegas.
During Season 4 Glanville sparked controversy when she made a comment to fellow housewife Joyce Giraud while in Palm Springs. Giruad commented that she could not swim when asked by Glanville to get into a pool, to which Glanville responded, "You're a black person", offending Giraud (who is Puerto Rican) and shocking her cast mates. This led to Glanville being attacked and condemned by fans, media, and housewives from other cities.
On January 14, Brandi once again caused controversy when interviewing comedians. During the podcast she joked that she "wanted to be molested as a child" and went on to joke about an incident involving her sister and high school principal. This sparked outrage among fans of Real Housewives and fans of Glanville on twitter.
Glanville has damaged her friendship with Lisa Vanderpump while filming the last season.
