Brandi Glanville will undergo surgery this week after doctors discovered a tumor in her breast.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star broke the news to In Touch magazine on Saturday, with the mother-of-two revealing the growth was benign:
“I am having surgery this week and am relieved it’s going to be over with.”
The tumor was discovered after Glanville complained of feeling unwell for months. Thankfully, tests showed the tumor was not cancerous, and Glanville is now looking forward to getting her treatment over with. She told In Touch:
“It’s a blessing the tumor is non-cancerous. I’m anxious about the recovery but have great friends who will be playing nurse. I’m ready to get it over with and feel better.”
The reality TV star added that her two sons, Mason and Jake, will be helping their mom get back to full health.
News of Brandi Glanville’s surgery comes at the end of a tough few weeks for the TV personality. The 40-year-old star has recently been engaged in a social media battle with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his new wife, country singer LeAnn Rimes.
The feud was triggered last week, when Glanville accused Rimes of being a dangerous influence on her children. In a tweet that has since been deleted, Glanville revealed that nine-year-old Mason had accidentally eaten one of “unstable” LeAnn’s laxatives, and had become ill as a result. She also claimed Rimes, who spent most of August in rehab in a bid to overcome emotional issues, suffered from a “severe eating disorder.”
That brought a response from ex-husband Eddie, who made an email he sent to Brandi public. Part of the email read:
“I know your life exists solely for the purpose of living and creating drama. It’s a sad way to live. It’s so obvious that you have to constantly mention my wife so people will care what comes out of your mouth. One day when wine and narcissism are not consuming you, you will see how fortunate the kids are to have LeAnn in their life. She is amazing with them, as the kids will 100 percent attest to.
“You should be so lucky to one day find someone who will love and respect Mason and Jake as she does. Although, I really don’t know how anyone can put up with your constant b******t. No wonder you have lost so many ‘close’ friends. Grow up already and for once, PUT THE KIDS FIRST!”
Glanville has since admitted that she regretted making the feud so public.
