Brandi Glanville is recovering after undergoing surgery to remove a golf ball-sized tumour from her breast.
The ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian admits she is "in pain but happy" after going under the knife on Wednesday (12Dec12) to remove the non-cancerous growth.
She tells EOnline.com, "My surgery went well. It was much larger than she (the surgeon) thought, so the surgery took much longer.
"It was the size of a golf ball so she has to take some fat from under my arm and graft it to the extraction spot... I'm in pain but happy that it is done, because I need to be healthy for my boys. They have been very helpful."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills regular has had a stressful few weeks - she has been locked in a war of words with Eddie Cibrian's second wife, singer LeAnn Rimes, over Twitter.com.
Brandi Glanville recently called out Rimes' parenting skills after alleging her young son with Cibrian had fallen ill after mistaking one of the country star's laxative pills for candy.
Eddie Cibrian wed LeAnn Rimes in April 2011 and they share custody of his and Glanville's two sons, Mason, nine, and Jake, five.
