Eddie Cibrian ''screamed'' at Brandi Glanville down the phone after discovering she used his credit card to pay for vaginal rejuvenation surgery.

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star splashed out $12,000 on the procedure using her ex-husband's cash as revenge for him cheating on her with singer Leann Rimes in 2009 and has revealed Eddie was raging when he found out the news.

The 40-year-old former model - who has two sons, Mason, nine, and five-year-old Jake, with Eddie - explained his reaction in her upcoming autobiography, 'Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders'.

She writes: ''Well, it didn't take long for Eddie to call about the bill. A week after the surgery, he was on the phone screaming, 'What the f**k cost you $12,000? Who the f**k is Dr. Matlock? Did you get a nose job?' ''

''[When he rang back] this time I didn't answer. It rang again - and then again. 'Ahh,' I thought. 'Eddie must have discovered Dr. Matlock on Google.' I decided it was best to avoid his calls for the next few days while he cooled off.''

Brandi insists Eddie remained ''absolutely livid'' about her secret surgery using his money, ''partly because of the price tag, and partly because of his overwhelming jealousy that some other man would reap the benefits of his ex-wife's new p***y''.

She writes: ''In hindsight, I know I shouldn't have put it on Eddie's card. It was vengeful, and it came back to bite me, because this was something I hoped to keep private.''

Brandi has been locked in a bitter war of words with LeAnn, who married Eddie in 2011 after legally separating from her husband Dean Sheremet.
