Eddie Cibrian's scorned ex-wife Brandi Glanville made her debut on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Monday -- and original castmember Lisa VanderPump was none too pleased.
After realizing that Glanville, 38, had been spending time with her former houseguest turned enemy Cedric Martinez, VanderPump, 51, admitted on-camera: "My feathers are a bit ruffled before I even start."
Glanville -- who arrived at Kyle Richards' charity event on crutches -- even poked fun at herself on her Bravo blog. "I do admit it is a pretty silly look to be rocking a stiletto with a crutch but I do everything in heels and a little broken leg isn't going to stop me!"
Despite being invited by Real Housewives star Adrienne Maloof, Glanville said she doesn't "think these ladies gave me a fair shake" at the party.
"I have been through an extremely hard couple of years that I wouldn't wish on any woman! My family was broken apart and I was devastated while trying to raise my two little boys as my world crumbled around me," she said, referencing her ex-husband's affair with country singer LeAnn Rimes.
"Knowing these women now, I'd like to think that if they had a little more background on my situation when we first met they would have been nicer."
