Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, 40, is having surgery this week to remove a benign breast tumor.

Us Weekly reports that Glanville's surgery is scheduled for this Wednesday, Dec. 12. The reality star, who has two children (Mason, 9, and Jake, 5) with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, tweeted about the benign tumor last week.

"I think I found a name 4 tumor in my booby thats coming out dec12 starts with an R &ends with an online." A apparent dig at Cibrian's current wife LeAnn Rimes? It would seem so. "It's not the big C, please don't worry," Glanville assured her followers after the initial tweet. "It's just some n'lame thats been making me ill."

Glanville and her ex-husband have engaged in a public war of words since Cibrian and Rimes had an extra-marital affair while filming the Lifetime movie Northern Lights. The two women have also actively sparred in the tabloid press, particularly about their children. Just last week Glanville told Us Weekly, "[Eddie] doesn't realize that [LeAnn is] using our children and putting them in danger. [She's] using them as a tool to get to me, and not just being a loving parent."
