Would You Take Relationship Advice from Brandi Glanville?

The ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Star is Drinking, Dating, and Writing Again

Yahoo Contributor Network

The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' bookshelf is about to get bigger!

According to Us Weekly, outspoken "Housewives" star Brandi Glanville has inked a deal to write a new relationship book, due out early next year. The filter-free reality star promises: "The second book will be filled with lots of drama, blunders, sordid details, and, of course, hashtags. I'm a bit wiser after having written my first book, but the craziness continues with co-parenting nightmares, exes, boyfriends, parties, sex, drinking, tweeting and everything else that makes my life such an adventure."

Following the bestselling success of her first book, "Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders," Glanville said her new title (tentatively titled "Drinking and Dating") will be "more of a 'moving on' kind of guide, and just a relationship guide," and she added, "There is a sex chapter, of course. There has to be!"

Brandi's filter-free first book ruffled a few feathers -- especially those of ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his new wife, LeAnn Rimes.

While Cibrian told the "Today" show that the book was written with the intention of hurting him and Rimes, Brandi told E! News, "My book is not intended to hurt my ex husband or his wife. It is my take on getting through break ups and divorce…. luckily I am in a position now, where I have a way to share those experiences with my supporters, and with women all over the world who have been cheated on, or are going through a nasty break up."

Indeed, her first book has chapters titled "If He Walks Like a Duck and Talks Like a Duck Then He's a Pig" and "His Future Ex" -- and names are named.

In the past year, Brandi's fellow "Housewives" stars Taylor Armstrong, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Vanderpump have also all penned books. Richards, who shared relationship secrets in her book, "Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real With the Housewife Who Does It All," told the Associated Press, "Once I started the show and people saw my relationship with my husband, I got so many comments and questions on Twitter that I really thought it would be fun to talk about things that worked for me." (She's been married to Beverly Hills realtor Mauricio Umansky since 1996, so something is working for her.)

But what about Brandi, who recently Life & Style this about her dating life: "Oh, it's a hot mess. It's good. I'm like all over the place, just broke up with a guy, dating another guy. I've got a guy in New York I like. I'm just all over the place, but I'm having fun."

Then there was the one-nighter with actor Gerard Butler, in which he admitted to bedding the blonde former model, but had no idea of her last name or who the heck she was. (In a Brandi blunder, she kissed and told, rating the actor's skills an "11 out of 10," before the "Olympus Has Fallen" star asked an inquiring paparazzo, "Who is Brandi Glanville?")

And as for her relationship with ex-hub, Eddie, there is none -- despite the fact that they have two young sons together. Brandi recently told the "Today" show she and her ex don't speak, and said she hasn't had a relationship with him "for over a year."

Do you think Brandi Glanville is a good one to dole out relationship advice?
