The 7 Biggest Bombshells in Brandi Glanville's New Book

The best-selling author is back with a new tome Drinking and Dating.

Brandi Glanville isn't just a star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's also a New York Times bestselling author thanks to her 2013 book Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders.

She's back this week with her follow-up book Drinking and Dating: P.S. Social Media Is Ruining Romance, in which she opens up about her life as a single mom on the dating scene following her divorce from Eddie Cibrian.

Brandi being Brandi, she isn't one to censor herself and there are plenty of OMG moments throughout about famous men she's dated, her ex-husband, and more. Here are seven of the biggest bombshells Brandi drops in the book..

She takes a few (subtle) digs at LeAnn Rimes.
When sharing lessons she's learned since splitting from Eddie, Brandi can't help but take a swipe at LeAnn, Eddie's new wife. "When you write an entire c--try album about your affair with a married man, most people won't buy it. #JustSayin."

She used to have some unhealthy habits.
Brandi reveals that picking up the pieces after Eddie wasn't easy. In fact, she developed nervous tics while spending nights alone. "I'd relapse so bad into my skin picking addiction that I'd wake up the next morning with my face looking like a pepperoni pizza," she writes.

She's refreshingly candid about her age and her looks.
"Getting older is inevitable," she writes, "People who say, 'Forty is the new thirty,' can suck it. Just look at our knees. Forty-year-old knees are not the new thirty. I never had armpits that looked like vaginal labia when I was thirty."

She hasn't given up on love.
She reveals that she went through a crippling depression following her divorce from Eddie, but she did her best to stay strong. "I'll let you on a little secret: I...hate being alone," she writes. "I think putting on a front was a way to help me get through the days and nights when I was so depressed and pathetically sad." She says that she's in a better place now: "I am, in fact, a hopeless romantic. I want someone to wake up with each morning, to take out the trash on garbage day, and to care deeply about me. I wanted my date on New Year's Eve to be the same man who took me out on Valentine's Day."

She's been used for her fame.
"More gay men than I care to count have asked me out because they're hoping dating me would allow them access to all things Housewives...and Bravo," she writes. "Maybe they were really after Andy [Cohen]?"

Her dating stories are doozies.
Brandi shares stories about some of the bad dates she's been on since her divorce. The best one involves a scarf-wearing venture capitalist who may (or may not) have a criminal background. Their fling comes to a head after he tries to persuade her to come to a Hollywood party at Brendan "Encino Man" Fraser's house. "It's funny that in the end it wasn't his shady history that came between us, his poor parenting skills, or even the fact that he wasn't as fabulous as he let on," she writes of her mystery man. "It was Brendan Fraser."

Her hook-up stories are better than blind items in Page Six.
Part of the fun of reading about Brandi's exploits isn't the exploits themselves—but figuring out the IDs of her suitors. (She assigns fake names to them throughout the book.) There's the famous actor, described as the biggest television actor of the '90s, who had an "incredible appetite" for pleasing Brandi. There's the sober, A-list movie star named "Marty" who has "sparkling" eyes but wasn't so great in bed. Then there's the "actor/rapper/political hopeful" and Oscar-winner with "chiseled abs" and "luscious lips" who "has to special order condoms just to fit him." Any guesses?
