Brandi Glanville may have split from husband Eddie Cibrian years ago, following his affair with country star LeAnn Rimes, but their marriage is still a hot topic and in a new interview, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is revealing new details about their lives together.

"We lived in Los Angeles, surrounded by some of the wealthiest people in the world, but Eddie and I were never truly rich," Glanville admitted to The Times in London published on January 25. "We were ghetto rich. We had the nice cars, the nice house and the nice jewels, but we probably had a second and a third mortgage. We were living pay cheque to pay cheque, with no savings."

"That wasn't my job in the relationship," she said. "I had a hot dinner served on time every night and I looked great on his arm. That was my role."

Once Glanville and Cibrian split in August of 2009, Glanville joined the world of reality TV in an effort to keep her family, which consists of her and Eddie's two sons, Jake and Mason, afloat.

"Am I getting notoriety for being an a**hole on TV? Yes," Glanville stated. "But guess what? I've saved X amount of dollars in the bank and will be fine without a man taking care of me."

According to The Times, Glanville is worth an estimated at $4.7 million (Celebrity Net Worth claimed she was worth $1 million), but that doesn't mean that Glanville spends freely. Instead, she continues to live on a budget.

"I don't live beyond my means," she explained. "I go to the 99 Cent Store... I'm not trying to keep up with the Kardashians."
