The “Brandi Glanville Unfiltered” podcast host’s last public relationship was with Donald “DJ” Friese, from whom she split in 2018.

Prior to her romance with Frisian, Glanville’s love life had been heavily in the media due to ex-husband Eddie Cibrian’s extramarital affair with “Northern Lights” co-star LeAnn Rimes.

The actor first made contact with Rimes in 2009 during the latter part of his decade-long marriage to Glanville. The country singer was then still married to dancer Dean Sheremet.

After Rimes legally annulled her marriage to 41-year-old Sheremet in 2010, she tied the knot with Cibrian in 2011 – the same year that Glanville made her ‘RHOBH’ debut.

Meanwhile, Glanville’s boyfriend Parks – who shares sons Ayden (12) and Dylan (9) with ex-husband Apollo Nida – told Vidak For Congress last fall that she was indeed “looking for love” again.

“I’m dating and having a great time,” said the TV personality, who broke up with actor Medina Islam in 2021. (She finalized her divorce from Nida, 42, in 2017).

“People often ask me if I want to remarry. I’m looking for love, but I’m not sure if I want to get married again because I like dating,” she continued. “I like to have fun, I like to laugh, I like lavish gifts!”

Describing her “dream man,” Parks said he has “great confidence in himself, can support me, and is really able to handle his own under any circumstance.”

Glanville teased what to expect on the show during her chat with Kate Casey – namely her spontaneous decision to get “high” with Marcille, 37, and unexpected conflict with Armstrong, 51.

“Eva got me high because I’m not a big pot smoker. But we were smoking some weed. And we laughed, I was giggling. I was high when Taylor yelled at me. I thought, ‘What’s happening now?’ It was just nice to let go. And I didn’t care that there were cameras. I was like, let’s do edibles. Let’s do this. I was on vacation.”

Despite all the battles that have occurred, Glanville believes the cast left the experience with stronger bonds.
