Brandi Glanville has suffered a series of set-backs in recent months including a health scare in December. However, the success of her new book is giving her much reason to celebrate following reports that she is now being recognized as a New York Times bestselling author.
In her book entitled "Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders," the reality TV star shares details about her failed marriage to actor Eddie Cibrian and his infamous affair with LeAnn Rimes. The book has only been out for one week, but Glanville is already enjoying success.
"Ok I'm crying! I'm a New York Times best selling author! I'm crying like a baby. Thank u thank u thank u!" Glanville tweeted Wednesday.
The single mom divorced Cibrian, who is the father of her two young sons, in 2011 and months later Rimes, 30, went on to marry him. The two women have been embroiled in a nasty feud ever since with both constantly exchanging subtle insults via social networking site Twitter.
In 2009 the troubled country singer admittedly had an affair with Cibrian while they were both married to other people and Glanville does not hide her feelings about their tryst in her new book.
"LeAnn had 'accidentally' smeared some cake frosting on her top (she was still a bigger girl and completely flat-chested at the time) and asked my husband, not realizing that I was standing behind the both of them, if he wanted lick it off her," Glanville wrote in the excerpt released by Life & Style magazine.
"This woman asked my husband if he wanted to eat the frosting mess she'd dropped on her nonexistent chest? … He hadn't realized I was there, either, and he laughed with hungry eyes at the suggestion," she went on.
Glanville also shares details about her ex-husband's other indiscretions, although the affair with Rimes has received the most attention. The "Real Housewives" star opened up about how Cibrian initially denied the affair with Rimes.
"I'm not entirely sure how I ended up on the floor of my closet sobbing," Glanville wrote. "A teary-eyed Eddie found me lying there minutes later ... he started kissing me all over … He swore up and down my body that it wasn't true … that it was completely innocent."
The book is so scandalous that Cibrian and Rimes allegedly threatened to take legal action against Glanville due to her explosive claims.
"Eddie pretty much plans on suing when the book comes out," Glanville told Us magazine prior to the book's Feb. 13 release.
