brandi glanville to undergo surgery for breast tumor

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville revealed she has a breast tumor and will undergo surgery this week.

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

The 40-year-old reality star visited a doctor after not feeling well for months. She was informed the cause of her sickness was the growing tumor in her breast, which was determined to be non-cancerous.

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

Glanville has been in the middle of some very public drama with ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, and his wife, LeAnn Rimes. Most recently, the three were engaged in a Twitter war after Brandi claimed Mason, her 9-year-old son with Cibrian, became violently ill after accidentally eating one of "unstable" LeAnn's laxatives.

Glanville and Cibrian also have another son, 5-year-old Jake.

Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet when she and Cibrian began an affair while working on the 2009 Lifetime movie, "Northern Lights."
