UPDATE: In her official response to Cibrian's divorce petition filed Oct. 13, 2009, Glanville blames Cibrian's continued infidelity for the ultimate demise of their union: "[Eddie] promised he would end his affair and work on saving our family. We even attended marital counseling in an attempt to repair our relationship."

Unfortunately for Glanville, it was too little, too late, and the constant media scrutiny brought Eddie's other indiscretions to light. "In July 2009, I learned that [Cibrian] had not ended his relationship with the other woman, and in fact, during our marriage had been unfaithful to me with another woman," read the documents. "I learned of these incidents via the media."

While Rimes is not named outright, a source close to the divorce proceedings confirms to E! News she is one of the two other women. The other is a

Hooters waitress previously linked to musician John Mayer.

Your move, LeAnn Rimes.

Eddie Cibrian, who is finally romancing the country songbird out in public (sort of), has filed for divorce from his wife of eight years, Brandi Glanville, E! News confirmed Tuesday.

"He filed yesterday and I accepted it," Glanville told E! exclusively. "We're getting a divorce. We talked to each other yesterday."

Which was just in time, apparently, because it turns out that Cibrian is already planning a romantic getaway with his "new" girlfriend, according to his soon-to-be ex-wife.

"They're going on vacation this weekend to Mexico," Glanville, who has made no secret of her feelings toward the recently separated Rimes, told E! "I'm looking forward to seeing those pictures." 

A rep for Cibrian had "no comment" at this time.

Glanville and Cibrian, who have two children together, confirmed about a month ago that they had separated—a good four months after rumors arose of an affair between the 36-year-old hunk and Rimes, his costar in the Lifetime movie Northern Lights.

Rimes and estranged hubby Dean Sheremet revealed just days later that they had been living apart "for quite some time."

Which apparently didn't come as a surprise to Glanville, who says in the latest issue of Us Weekly that Cibrian is "a compulsive liar, cheater and a home wrecker."

"Eddie's displays of poor taste have hurt our two children," she said. "Eddie may just end up drowning himself in that 'unfair fishbowl.'"

But now that divorce proceedings are under way, Glanville is seeing things in a more positive light.

"It's just over for me," she told E! News. "We're both happy. This is going to be good."

Per the petition filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Cibrian cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and is asking for joint custody of sons Mason, 6, and Jake, 2.
