Brandi Glanville (born November 16, 1972) is an American television personality and former fashion model. She is best known for joining the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Glanville was born on November 16, 1972 to parents Guy and Judith Ann Glanville and raised in Sacramento, CA. She has an older sister, Tricia, and a younger brother, Michael. At the age of 16, Glanville moved to Paris, France and began modeling. By the next year, she was taking part in Paris runway shows. During a 17-year modeling career, she appeared in the pages of Glamour and Cosmopolitan and worked for design houses including Chanel, Giorgio Armani, and Gucci. In 2011, Glanville was introduced by Adrienne Maloof in the second season of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Glanville married actor Eddie Cibrian, known primarily for his work on TV series including The Young and The Restless, Third Watch, CSI: Miami and The Playboy Club, on May 12, 2001. The couple had two sons together, Mason Edward (born June 8, 2003) and Jake Austin (born April 7, 2007). In early 2009, reports surfaced that Cibrian was having an affair with married country singer LeAnn Rimes, his costar in Northern Lights. Though Glanville initially stood by her husband in public and attended counseling with him, Cibrian and Rimes took their relationship public in August 2009, one week after Rimes separated from her husband.
