Say what you will about the Real Housewives franchise, but damn if it isn't a breeding ground for reality TV stars to do even more reality TV. So...there's that. The most recent star to fall victim strike out on her own after finding fame through the Bravo juggernaut is Brandi Glanville, who stars on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." According to E! Online, the news broke yesterday but it hasn't been confirmed by either Glanville or her people.

Coincidentally, it came on the heels of Glanville's arch nemesis, LeAnn Rimes, announcing that she and Eddie Cibrion—Glanville's ex, who cheated on her with Rimes—will be getting their own show, following their lives as a happy, normal couple.

So the lesson here is this: the answer to proving that you are doing better than your cheating ex is to top their reality show with your own.

Of course.

Since her split from Cibrian, Glanville not only made the cast of "Real Housewives," she also published a book, "Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders." She became known on the show for her willingness to say whatever was on her mind, and also, to rarely wear a bra.
