Yesterday I was just not in blogger mode. I thought about blogging about Brandi Glanville’s tabloid war with Eddie Cibrian and Leann Rimes but I just felt sort of meh. About it. As it continues to be ongoing, and y’all keep asking about it, I’ll tackle it today. It just seems so…LONG. Plus it opens the door to a whole new league of crazy commenters and we are well past quota on that without inviting the Leann Rimes crazies to the party. But in the spirit of there can never be too much crazy, let’s talk about it.
Ever since Leann ran off with Brandi’s husband, married him, and proceeded to pretend she is the mother to Brandi’s two boys there has been obvious tension between Brandi and Leann. Leann spends a lot of time on twitter tweeting about Eddie and the boys which lead to rabid fans of Brandi and rabid fans of Leann spending their lives fighting with each other. Leann fans were leaking stories to Radar Online, in August Leann was encouraging fans to harass Brandi and even began calling Brandi fans on the phone trying to change their minds. This eventually led to Leann going to “rehab” for her twitter addiction. Of course Brandi was asked about the situation in every interview and for a while she was taking the high road.
Okay, so if you clicked on all those links, you should be caught up and ready to follow what happened this week. First of all, Brandi’s grandmother is very ill and Brandi was having a hard time finding a space for her in the hospital. It’s clear from her tweets that Brandi is quite stressed out about it. Meanwhile, Leann took the boys and Eddie on a road trip to the Northwest for a concert weekend. Leann of course tweeted the whole thing. To be fair, the tweets seemed pretty harmless to me but Brandi lost her mind over one that said something about Leann having a great time with “my boys.” With Brandi all alone dealing with a very sick grandparent it sent Brandi right over the edge. You can debate among yourselves whether that was deliberate or not. Brandi shot back a tweet saying they were her boys and Leann’s stepsons….for now.
And then, Brandi gave an interview to US Weekly where she rattled off a list of issues she had with Leann that she had kept silent about previously. She explains her biggest issue here:
“I, unfortunately, don’t find her to be stable and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there — or at least the nanny, his parents, someone. Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le’s candies and got extremely ill. And Le’s candies are laxatives. It was a big f–king deal for me, and I lost my mind. Mason found one on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don’t keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy.”
Isn’t Mason 9? What nine-year-old eats random “skittles” that he finds on the floor? How sick could a kid get from eating one Correctol? Brandi goes on to complain that her youngest was riding without a helmet or his training wheels. As much as I like Brandi, these seem like battles best not chosen considering all the other issues between these two.
So Eddie replies (again in the media) with this, “It is absolutely ridiculous that my ex-wife continues to put the personal lives of myself, LeAnn, our sons and my family on public display for the sake of her notoriety. She is fully capable and has the means of contacting myself and LeAnn privately to discuss any matter concerning the children. The fact she chooses not to, should be pretty transparent. And while I do not wish to fuel her ever-igniting fire, there is a breaking point where enough is enough.”
And Brandi responds with, ” I can’t get through to either one of them. They won’t answer. And then after all the Twitter stuff, I get this long-winded email from Eddie — finally, after months — saying I need to stop talking about his wife to make myself relevant. Nothing to do with the children. Nothing to do with answering the questions I have. I see this ending badly. I see someone getting hurt, and, if it’s my children, I will lose my mind. I said to my friend yesterday, ‘I don’t feel like she’s stable.’ God forbid anything ever happened between her and Eddie. She uses my children as a tool to get to me, and I don’t know if she cares about them the way that Eddie thinks she does. She cries that she didn’t have a childhood, but you know, I’m sorry that you were a child star. You got rich and famous at a young age. I’m sorry you didn’t have a childhood, but you’re acting like a child now. And I can’t have a child raising my children.”It goes on and gets worse…
Which brings us to last night when Brandi in a tweet called Leann “angelfish” because she sings like an angel and drinks like a fish. She also suggested that Eddie man up and put down the tequila and start being a parent. She then deleted the tweet and said that she was wrong to post it.
And that is where things stand for now. Leann must have learned a thing or two in “tweethab” because she is posting pictures of her fabulously decorated house and tweeting about how happy her life is as if nothing is going on. Now I MUST wrap this up because Nene is on The Talk talking about this right now!
Whose side are you on in the Brandi Glanville war with Eddie Cibrian and Leann Rimes?
