(CBS) Brandi Glanville, the ex-wife of "The Playboy Club" actor Eddie Cibrian, made her debut on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" on Monday night.

Glanville, a friend of cast member Adrienne Maloof, made her entrance on the Bravo series when Maloof brought her to Kyle Richards' charity event.

"She's going through a divorce and I wanted to show her a good time," Maloof said.

The other castmembers criticized Glanville for wearing stilettos while she was on crutches (due to an injury that was caused by wearing high shoes), and Lisa Vanderpump didn't like that Glanville is friendly with her ex-BFF/permanent houseguest Cedric.

Glanville and fellow newcomer Dana Wilkey will be featured as friends of the cast, but are not official "Real Housewives."

Glanville gained notoriety when Cibrian, with whom she has two children, left her for LeAnn Rimes. He and the country singer are now married.
