Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is tall, willowy and beautiful -- but it isn't all natural. The single mom says she resorts to getting a little help to maintain her edge in the Los Angeles dating pool.
"Having grown up modeling, I'm very self-aware of my physical appearance," Glanville told Shape. "It's hard to grow older, especially in this town where everyone is perfect! They're all 20 years old and gorgeous, and I'm now in the same dating pool as them, yikes, it's really hard! This town makes you insecure."
Not helping matters is the fact that her ex, Eddie Cibrian, cheated on her with a ten years younger LeAnn Rimes -- whom he later married.
What's a girl to do? In addition to pampering herself with laser treatments and photo facials to treat adult acne and melasma, Glanville admits welcoming a needle or two.
"And yes, I'll cop to a few plastic surgery procedures like Botox and fillers," she admitted. "I think everyone should do what makes them feel good but remember: Less is more!"
Her other big beauty secret? Never let the haters get you down.
"People have said horrible things like I'm 'plastic' and I'm a bad mom. I think after three years of hearing it I have just developed a thick skin," she said. "I think it's human nature, and I know what they say isn't true so I've learned to not take it to heart."
