Brandi Glanville is having a non-cancerous tumor removed this week

I’ve never paid much attention to Brandi’s bolt-ons. I knew she had them because the tabloids made such a big deal about the fact that LeAnn Rimes went to the same plastic surgeon to get HER bolt-ons. But I never really looked at Brandi’s rack… I guess I should applaud her for getting the right size for her frame. Anyway, in what I hope is a mere coincidence, Brandi found a non-cancerous tumor in one of her breasts, and she’s having it removed this week. Ugh. This is one of my nightmares (I mean, this happening to me is one of my nightmares).

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, 40, exclusively tells In Touch about breast surgery she will have this week to remove a tumor.

“I am having surgery this week and am relieved it’s going to be over with,” Brandi tells In Touch. “It’s a blessing the tumor is non-cancerous.”

After not feeling well for months, Brandi was recently told by doctors that the cause of her sickness was due to a growing tumor in her breast. Thankfully, test results later concluded that the mass was non-cancerous.

Aside from her health struggles, it’s been a rough couple of months for Brandi, who’s been in the middle of some very public drama with her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, and his wife, LeAnn Rimes. This past week, Brandi sparked a Twitter war with LeAnn and Eddie after publicly revealing that their son Mason accidentally ate one of “unstable” LeAnn’s laxatives, causing the boy to become violently ill.

And while the drama continues between the three parents, Mason is now fine…in fact, he will play a large role in his mother’s recuperation. Brandi says Mason, 9, and his brother Jake, 5, will be nursing their mommy back to health and staying by her side during her recovery. TLC from her kids might be just what the doctor ordered.

“I’m anxious about the recovery but have great friends who will be playing nurse,” Brandi shares. “I’m ready to get it over with and feel better.”

It sounds like it will just be a relatively simple procedure and hopefully she’ll be just fine. There have been stories about Brandi getting her implants FOR Eddie, when they were married. It makes me wonder… now that Eddie isn’t around, do you think she would ever get them taken out and just go completely natural? I would like Brandi more if she went natural in all things, including the Botox. Anyway, I hope Brandi’s surgery goes well and there’s no drama.

    Her head?

  2. hoya_chick says:

    I hope she has a speedy recovery! Scary stuff but glad she will be ok. I know a lot of people have lots opinions about her but I can’t help but like her.

  3. BreeinSEA says:

    .. I am probably going to hell for saying this but, of course she is.

  4. lori says:

    Waiting on a comment from LR and EC saying that Brandi only got a tumor for attention. They are low enough to say it.

  5. daisydoodle says:

    In the medical profession we usually refer to it as a breast mass, not a tumor. I think the tumor reference is more for effect, not that I’m a fan of LR or BG, it’s just a fact. I think probably her PR people used that word….

  6. jess says:

    Funny how Leann isn’t getting any press for the interview last night, except on HuffPost where she has 800 something negative comments. I’m hoping Brandi’s book does so well she gets a couple of millions. I’ve already preordered my kndle copy, and I hope Leann’s albumn where she writes songs about the affair flops. I really like when people get what they deserve. good or bad.

  7. Justaposter says:

    I agree Daisydoodle, but if you google ‘mass’, “tumor” pops up everywhere.

    I don’t wish anyone poor health, but I would have major respect if she used her power for good, instead of evvil if she used her “spotlight” stating something like “During my monthly self exam I found a lump….”

    If she did that, someone could have possibly saved their lives.

    I realize it isn’t her responsiblity, but it would have been a great thing to do.

  8. maggiegrace says:

    Also, a benign mass is not at all likely to cause systemic symptoms. The “after not feeling well for months…” seems weird. I like Brandi, and I believe that she’s having something done, but also think that her publicists are playing this toward the sympathy factor.

    • HadleyB says:

      Maybe there is an issue with her implants? — they can make you feel like crap if there is something wrong with them.

      Unless the “tumor” was rubbing against her implant and that was what was making her feel pain?

      When I had ones that were too big they pained me before I removed them… but hers look ok for her frame so not sure whats really going on…

    • heidi says:

      She was rushed to the hospital by ambulance(Lisa rode in the ambulance w/her) due to this 2 weeks back. She’s genuine, not fraudulent.

  9. emily says:

    A woman who is on a show like ‘real housewives’ doesn’t look like she got breast implants just for her husband… they add to her ‘look’…

  10. brin says:

    I hope all goes well with Brandi’s surgery and wish her a speedy recovery. She deserves health and happiness after all the crap she’s had to deal with.

  11. Rita says:

    Good Luck, honey. Speedy recovery.

  12. Rita says:

    Now if Brandi can only have that pain in her ass removed because its not benign.

  13. KellyinSeattle says:

    Do we have to hear everything about her? She’s turning into a bit of a media whore herself…but LeAnn is definitely trying to pull off her look, especially the third pic.

    • Yamayama says:

      then don’t come to Celebitchy and click on an article about Brandi. God, I can’t stand it when people whine and complain on a gossip website about celebrities they don’t wanna read about.

    • april says:

      Can’t stand Brandi either. And I hate it when you can’t post a negative comment about Brandi without a poster complaining about it.

  14. Memphis says:

    Wishing her good luck and a quick recovery.

    Well, the speculation is needless. Breast implants don’t cause cancer and never have. No credible medical professional would ever suggest otherwise with a straight face.

    • Karma says:

      I think you might have read it wrong. No one is claiming the bolt-ons caused the cancer/tumor/non-cancerous tumor.

      The comments are more along the lines of the visuals. Who, what, why, and how well sized, she got them and if she’ll keep the implants, because they do look good on her.

      Yes, commenting on the scary part of a tumor in her breast is a pretty universal scare, but still isn’t tied to the implants.

  17. Rant says:

    I thought she had it removed in 2010.

    • Macey says:

      dayum. I honestly doubt GB had anything to do with that article, sounds like something LR would have one of her minions put out there or one of the bitter HWs. GB seemed to be more pissed that she made it public, I doubt he would just drum it up again just to bash her in the press. also, i highly doubt sleeping w/her would have any impact on him getting roles. he’s a known player in hollywood so his lifestyle isn’t exactly top secret.

  18. Rita says:

    Just so you know. Brandi’s book jump over 50 places in the top 100 books in her category after LeAnn’s interview on Enews. Thanks LeAnn.

  19. Karma says:

    Hope Brandi has a speedy recovery and that she doesn’t have to do it more than once.

    My aunt has had several removed. It brings up all those fears, yet again. And even after knowing it isn’t cancerous…it’s still stressful and surgery.

    It’s nice that she has a job to be able to afford health insurance. This could have been a much worse result for her without the Housewives franchise.

  20. JudyK says:

    Good for BUtler. He at least is not falling for her pity party and in no way even if he did bang her on a one nioght stand would he own up to banging that harpie. SHe was not rushed to the hospital because of a lumpm in her breast and when she did the drama thing and called the ambulance they didnt even keep her over night LOL I am sick of her crap . SHe keeps it going bitching about LR and guess who will take her kids while she is getting this no milignant lump removed?? LR that is who. SHe may bitch about LR having an affair with EC but she is out bragging about her one night stands while LR has her kids. SHe is a drunk and has a dui and I see why ECX go the hell away form this publicity whore, SHe is twice as bad as LR and never wiull have the talent LR has.

    • Georgina says:

      Brandi was not rushed to the hospital because of a benign mass in her breast. She was taking an antibiotic and had an allergic reaction to it. Ever hear of anaphylactic shock? It can be very dangerous. And who was taking care of the children when Eddie, who was still married at the time, had one night stands with a variety of women, including Scheana and Leann? Unless you know that about which you are commenting, perhaps you should refrain from the rant.
