Our columnist Brandi Glanville hasn’t had a serious man in her life since her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian ran off with country singer LeAnn Rimes in 2009.

But as The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star prepares to bare her soul in the new E! reality series Famously Single, which sees her move into a house with seven other unattached celebs, NW can reveal that things could soon go nuclear between Brandi and her ex Eddie and his wife LeAnn… again!

Yep, while Brandi and the couple have been doing their best to be friendly after years of warring words, the reality star says she’s thinking about dating LeAnn’s ex Dean Sheremet, who she’ll soon team up with on the US version of My Kitchen Rules.

“I love Dean, he’s been a close friend for a long time and he seems very in love with the idea of being in love,” Brandi reveals.

“He’s 35 and just went through his second divorce. He’s very sweet and very flirtatious but he’s very flirtatious with everyone.”

So is dating Dean on the cards? “I’m not ruling it out,” she says.

In the meantime, we’re about to see Brandi fall hard for co-star Calum Best, 35, on Famously Single, a show that sees celebs including Jersey Shore’s Pauly D go through relationship rehab – with the help of love coach Dr Darcy Sterling – to solve their romantic issues.

For Brandi, though, it sounds like things just got complicated…

So you’ve grown close to Dean. Do you think you’d get Eddie and LeAnne’s blessing if you two started dating?

Here’s the beautiful thing about being divorced – you don’t have to get a blessing from your ex-husband to do anything ever again. I don’t feel the need to ask their permission. They made their choice and I’ll do me and they can do them. Right now things are good between us and I don’t see this being a problem at all.

Have you always found Dean attractive?

He’s very good looking and sweet. I’m curious to see what it’s going to be like in the kitchen with him because we’re both bossy and I’ve never cooked with him. I’m a bit nervous to see how that goes.
