The Celebrity Apprentice 2015 season premieres Sunday night on NBC, and Brandi Glanville is one of the contestants participating. While Brandi is already a familiar face to many Real Housewives fans, others are anxious to figure out just who she is. What do people need to know about Glanville?
Brandi Glanville became known many years back when she was married to actor Eddie Cibrian. Brandi and Eddie have two sons together, Mason and Jake. Many recognize Cibrian from his days on shows like The Young & the Restless, Third Watch, Invasion and more recently from The Playboy Club.
Eddie and Brandi’s marriage fell apart in 2009 when Cibrian started an affair with singer LeAnn Rimes while they were filming a Lifetime movie called Northern Lights. It also came out that Cibrian cheated on Glanville with Scheana Marie Jancan, who has been seen on Vanderpump Rules.
Brandi and Eddie’s divorce was finalized in September, 2010 and in December of that same year Eddie and LeAnn announced their engagement. They married in 2011. Brandi and LeAnn have had a contentious relationship over the years, and they have often battled it out on Twitter. As E! Online notes, Brandi has been fairly open about a lot of this drama over the years, even addressing much of it in her books.
Glanville joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in its second season and she remains a controversial cast member. Though Brandi is a former model, as the Bravo site notes, these days she is known more for her RHOBH stint, her podcast called Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, her former marriage and her books. Glanville has published books titled Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders as well as Drinking and Dating.
In this new season of Celebrity Apprentice, spoilers reveal that she is said to be stirring the pot quite a bit. Donald Trump teases she is one of the most vicious contestants they’ve ever had, and there’s an incident between Brandi and fellow Real Housewives franchise star Kenya Moore that nearly involves punches.
Brandi may be known as being wild and dramatic, but can she impress Donald Trump enough to stick around for a while this season? She’s going to have some tough competition, but Celebrity Apprentice spoilers indicate that she may surprise viewers will her ability to get the job done.
The Celebrity Apprentice 2015 season kicks off on Sunday, January 4, then it will settle into a Monday night time slot beginning on January 5. How will Brandi Glanville fare alongside other contestants like Kate Gosselin, Kenya Moore and Ian Ziering? Fans can’t wait to find out.
