Brandi Glanville claims her ex-husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, was “f**king” actress Piper Perabo on the set of his 2005 movie The Cave.
“They made a movie together and [my son] Mason was 1 year old and I went on set and it was in another country, Romania, I think,” claims the 50-year-old “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” alum in an exclusive interview with Page Six.
“And [Perabo] was a horrible asshole to me,” the Unfiltered podcast host flatly adds.
Glanville says she was uncomfortable seeing Perabo and Cibrian’s alleged interactions.
“She was flirting with Eddie right in front of me,” she claims. “I was like, am I here? Am I the only person [seeing this]? Like, what’s happening?’”
Glanville, who married Cibrian in May 2001, notes that she sought friendship with The Cave crew members — and they kept her updated on what was happening on set.
“I made friends on set and I heard a lot of things,” she tells us.
When asked what she heard, Glanville claims she was told “that Piper and Eddie were f**king”.
According to Glanville, she confronted Cibrian about the alleged affair when he returned home to Los Angeles after filming.
“When he came home I was like, ‘I’m leaving, blah blah, I’m gone,'” she says.
In the end, though, Glanville decided she wasn’t going to throw in the towel — at least not yet.
“He convinced me it wasn’t true,” she claims. “We had a 1-year-old son and he was the love of my life at the time and, you know, there was a lot to convince me of things.”
Glanville further claims that Cibrian dismissed her concerns, telling her she was “just crazy”, “jealous” and “that whole deal”.
“And I was like, ‘Okay.’ I was in love,” she says of her choice to stay by Cibrian’s side. “For example, I was blindly in love with the man.”
A Cibrian representative declined to comment when reached by Page Six. Perabo representatives have yet to contact us despite repeated requests.
Perabo, now 46, co-starred with Cibrian, now 49, in 2005’s The Cave, an action horror film about a group of cave divers and scientists who become trapped while exploring a cave system in Romania.
The critically panned film was shot on location between Romania and Mexico for a period in 2004. Cibrian and Glanville welcomed their firstborn, Mason, now 19, on June 8, 2003. (They also share a younger son named Jake, now 15.)
Prior to the revelation of Cibrian’s alleged flirtation with Perabo, he was involved in high-profile affairs with Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay and country superstar LeAnn Rimes.
While Glanville remained committed to Cibrian despite a months-long relationship with Shay, now 37, in 2006, his widely reported partnership with Rimes, now 40, pushed the couple to part ways for good.
Glanville and Cibrian finally divorced in 2010 after nine years of marriage.
The Playboy Club actor married Rimes in 2011, two years after they met on the set of Lifetime’s romantic drama Northern Lights.
Glanville thinks it’s “ironic” that both Rimes and Perabo appeared in the 2000 blockbuster Coyote Ugly — long before Cibrian came into the picture.
“It’s a bit ironic that [Perabo] was in Coyote Ugly with LeAnn. I’m like, ‘Oh god, they shared the same D,'” the outspoken TV personality jokes.
Perabo played the lead role of Violet Sanford, an aspiring singer-songwriter who moves to New York City with dreams of success in the music business, but instead works as an inner-city barmaid.
Meanwhile, Rimes provided the Coyote Ugly soundtrack to the hit single Can’t Fight the Moonlight, performing it in a cameo at the end.
Glanville, saying she’s in a “good place” with Rimes today, claims to Page Six that a Coyote Ugly poster once hung in the latter’s house featuring Cibrian.
“They had the poster hanging in their house for a while,” she says. “And I’m like, ‘You might want to delete that, girl’.”
Admittedly, Glanville is not a fan of the Y2K movie – or Perabo for that matter.
“I don’t like her as a person,” she says, “because I think she fucked my husband.”
Interestingly enough, Rimes and the Yellowstone actress were also once linked to the same man years before working with Cibrian – but just a year after appearing together in Coyote Ugly.
In 2001, a then-teen Rimes broke up with her longtime boyfriend, “10 Things I Hate About You” actor Andrew Keegan, after he reportedly started dating Perabo, per E! News’ pick-up of a Daily News article.
