“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville has made it well known that ex-husband Eddie Cibrian cheated on her, but the television personality opened up about what the experience felt like during an interview with William Shatner on the ORA TV show “Brown Bag Wine Tasting.”
Glanville, 42, thought maybe she could have forgiven him if he had had an affair with just one woman, but there were several ladies involved. "I tried, but when I found out there was more than a couple, I decided I was better off on my own,” she said about not being able to save her marriage, according to Us Weekly.
Not only did Cibrian have an affair with “Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Marie, he famously cheated on Glanville with current wife LeAnn Rimes. "He had extra girlfriends, I guess you can say. He had some ladies on the side,” the Bravo star told Shatner.

When she discovered Cibrian had been unfaithful, the “RHOBH” star said she went through a period of mourning. "It's almost like a death. You mourn; you die a little bit. Who you were as a wife and a mother, you're no longer that person,” she said.
Though she questioned herself for about a year -- she wondered if she was skinny enough, if her breasts were large enough and whether her eyes were the correct shade -- she eventually came to terms with her ex-husband’s actions and experienced growth. "It made me a better person to go through that,” Glanville added. “And to figure out that it had nothing to do with me."
Glanville and Cibrian broke up in 2010 after nine years of marriage. The have two children together, sons Mason and Jake.
