Brandi Glanville decided it’s time to sit down with her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian‘s mistress, waitress Scheana Marie. Cibrian famously cheated on Glanville with singer LeAnn Rimes, to whom he is now married, but in 2009, Marie came forward claiming she had also been in a relationship with Cibrian.
On Monday’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Glanville sat down with Marie, who was visibly nervous.
“I’m shaking right now,” says a tearful Marie.
“Don’t cry,” says Glanville. “I lost my family. I lost everything that I had. So if anyone’s gonna cry here, it’s not going to be you.”
Glanville went on to tell Marie that she’s “in such a better place” and to declare, “I win. You know what I mean?”
Glanville then tells US Weekly that she had a lot of anxiety about the meeting, but that that anxiety was definitely mutual.
“I think she was really nervous to talk to me,” says Glanville. “I don’t feel sorry for her. I didn’t. I was kind of indignant, a little bit. I didn’t understand why she was crying. I do feel like she’s remorseful … but it is what it is.”
“She kind of did me a big favor showing me that it wasn’t a one-time thing with LeAnn. Basically, [Eddie] had been sleeping with every waitress in town,” says Glanville. “So it was a wakeup call that I desperately needed in order to push me out the door … had she not come forward, I might still be in that situation … I think everything happens for a reason.”
“I’m glad we talked,” concludes Glanville. “And when I see her now, I say hello and it’s really not a big deal.”
