The author says dating "douchebags" had one upside: it helped her creativity.

on Feb 21 - The Dish0

She says it right there in the title: Brandi Glanville's latest book is all about what she's learned from her adventures while Drinking and Dating, and her "douchebag" exes play a big part in her story.

"They gave me such great content for the book because they were douchebags, mostly," Brandi tells Us Weekly. "So when you're a douchebag, you get to get called out in a book.

The New York Times bestselling author goes on to compare herself to a pop icon who has not been afraid to name-names: "I'm the Taylor Swift of book writing," she says.

Brandi's been upfront about her feelings regarding her ex, Eddie Cibrian, and their tumultuous relationship since they got divorced in 2010. Though he's certainly the most famous and devastating of her exes, he's not necessarily alone in the jerk category, according to Brandi.

"I've always lived my life very out loud, even when I wasn't in the public eye," she continues. "I didn't really hold anything back. I just figure, at this point, what do I have to lose, really? If these guys were nicer guys, they wouldn't end up in this book. So maybe people that want to date me should treat me better."

Brandi, a single mom, puts her two sons first when it comes to introducing a new man in her life. "When I meet the right person and it's his idea to meet my children and not mine, then it will happen," she says. "I really think it's important for me to protect them and not push them on anyone."

Is Brandi really "the Taylor Swift of book writing"? What do you think of her new book? Let us know in the comments.

Taylor Swift is talented and hard working…Brandi your claim to 15 minutes of fame is being an ex-wife to a B list actor.

What kind of "material" would your exes write about YOU?

You are uequivocally hedonistic, self-absorbed and a liar!  Anything for sympathy, so you think, but it's quite evident what your agenda is.... you do not want or need friends as evidenced in tonight's episode. It was shocking to see that the other "hens" are in the lines of "Mean Girls" with you & Yolanda's dumb butt as the instigators!  Lisa is a classy, gorgeous lady who does not deserve the crappy end of your delusions.  This is the kind of garbage that will make me stop watching this show, as it is becoming a soap opera.  Grow up moron!!! Get the hell over yourself, you need professional help! & bring your BH buddies with you!!!

You are kidding, right?  You are no were near the level of Taylor Swift.  First of all, she is smart, beautiful and talented.  That leaves you out on all three.

Only if Taylor Swift had no talent, was vulgar and didn't write her songs.

Guessing we can now add Taylor Swift to the litany of folks BG has unsuccessfully tried to drag down to her own level  Thankfully, Taylor Swift can laugh all the way to the bank while the closest desperate to make a buck & stay relevant Brandi is to Miss Swift is most likely via the fact that Brandi probably has shoes as old as Taylor.  Just like Brandi's books, NOT BUYIN' IT!

Taylor Swift writes about the famous people she dated. Brandi is known for being an ex-wife of an actor.  Brandi lies to make herself look better or make herself the victim.  How do I know she's telling the truth about who she dates?  Liars bore me.

@stunis I agree, a strong woman knows her worth and will not play victim, much less depend on others for happiness and self worth. We often get as good as we give...
