Brandi Glanville, from "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," said her ex-husband's extramarital affair with singer LeAnn Rimes helped her achieve growth and financial independence.   

The reality television star opened up to Fox News about her 2009 divorce to Eddie Cibrian after eight years of marriage due to his affair with Rimes. She admitted that though the divorce was difficult and left her heartbroken, it helped her grow and move forward in her life. 

"It made me realize that this was really happening. I think you can fall under a delusion and you don't want to admit it to yourself. It made it real and it made me realize he was moving on," Glanville told Fox. "He did not care about me any longer or he wouldn't be out and about with this woman getting photographed, so I had no choice but to move on. I think it helped me to be honest."

Rimes was also married at the time of the affair.

The Bravo TV star also said she is still building up her credit because "for 13 years my name wasn't on one account."

"I was a 36-year-old woman who couldn't lease a car and couldn't lease a house!" she added.

Glanville's new book will explore her break up with Cibriani, which she described as a "cautionary tale" about the mistakes she made along the way, what she would do differently and what she was proud of. 

Glanville shares joint custody of her two sons Jake, 5, and Mason, 9, with Cibrian. She admitted to Fox that she is dating someone, though the only details she would give was that he was "a tall gentleman."

 "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" currently airs on Bravo and by Cibrian's request, the children are not shown in the show. Glanville said that this season of the show comes full of "feisty blondes." Last season she did not get along so well with Kim Richards and Taylor Armstrong and in this season's premiere, Richards walks away when she sees her at a party.
