In the latest Brandi Glanville headline sure to shock anyone with a sense of decency or even an average portion of common sense, the poster child for scorned women offered up a few revenge tips for other women with cheating husbands. Us Weekly broke down a feature appearing in the March issue of Glamour magazine, released on Feb. 5, where the "housewife" discusses how she sought to punish Eddie Cibrian for cheating on her with LeAnn Rimes. However, these tips are more the type of advice to avoid heeding.
Brandi told the magazine:
I got a knife, and I went out to the garage. I just took it to both of his Harleys. I hated those bikes—my dad had almost died in a motorcycle accident. I had never wanted Eddie on them, because we had children. I slashed all of the tires, and it felt so good.
This type of vengeful action is not one to be proud of in the moment or immediately after the moment. It also should not be an action one comments on years later with the phrase "it felt so good," especially if that quote is not followed with the more grown-up perspective time can bring to a bad situation. Slashing the tires on Eddie's motorcycles or destroying any real or personal property in a divorce is not only an emotionally stunted act on Brandi's Granville's part, but an act that can carry serious legal and monetary consequences.
According to DivorceNet.com, if a spouse hides or destroys an asset, whether it is marital property or personal property belonging to the other spouse, the judge can take that into consideration when settling the division of property in the divorce and lesson the settlement for the destructive partner or order the destroyer to compensate their spouse for the value of the items. The possibility of criminal charges also exists when personal property is destroyed.
Given the nature of Brandi Glanville's divorce from Eddie Cibrian, she likely did not face the consequences of her choices. However, the average fan attempting to emulate her actions would be in the hot seat and venture forth as a single person with less cash and a possible arrest record. Revenge doesn't feel so good then.
