Admittedly, sometimes I get in my own head about things, which may explain a little bit more about my love of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. No, this isn't a Honey Boo Boo post because that would be easy. No, this entry focuses on LeAnn Rimes'Twitter battle with a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville fan which led to the country singer suing the fan who is a teacher. Don't get me wrong, LeAnn is three-star cray in my book but this disgruntled fan isn't doing herself any favors by continuing to talk to the press. I have to wonder if either of these ladies realize there are actual and legitimate problems going on in the world. Probably not.
Here's a mini-break down. LeAnn and Brandi's Twitter followers were embroiled in a toxic tweeting war. Fans of each woman were bashing the wannabe celebs and their followers in what can only be described as mean girl bullies hiding behind their lattes and laptops. Do these people not have jobs?
Anyhoo, LeAnn was particularly sensitive to the negative things being said about her. Instead of doing what a normal person of her status would do (ie, deleting her Twitter, because who cares about what the commoners think? OR laughing maniacally while dancing around with millions of dollars, pitying those who have only enough money to afford the Internet with which they are bashing her), she went into the trenches, launching her own attacks. Somehow (I'm still foggy as to how this occurred), she ended up with the phone number of one of her greatest haters. And she called her. I'm assuming LeAnn thought that Kim Smiley getting a phone call from a quasi famous person would immediately render her star-struck, and she's stop hatefully tweeting like a mad woman. Boy, did LeAnn misread that situation.
Not only did Kim not buckle to LeAnn, she recorded their phone call which apparently has the singer going from kind to cursing in a matter of minutes. Again, who (on either side) has the time for this? Blah, blah, blah, and LeAnn is suing Kim for illegally recording her. Our tax dollars at work, ladies and gentlemen.
Speaking to RumorFix at the grand opening of Splits Richards new boutique (Hey! Why wasn't RT invited, Splits?!) Marisa dishes on RHONJ and her words weren't exactly kind.
"I don’t like the New Jersey Housewives. I’m so sick of seeing Teresa [Giudice] and her family fight. It’s annoying. I don’t want to see it anymore," Marisa lamented. See – even OTHER housewives are tired of the toxicity, it's not just for plebian viewers anymore. What are you going to do about THAT, Cohen?
I don't think any marriage counselor ever would advise you to go on a reality show if you and your spouse were having issues…especially not on one of the housewives franchises. The Bravo freight train is riddled with divorce. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that of all the cities, Real Housewives of New Jersey is the only series that hasn't had a resulting divorce…and we all saw how well those ladies' marriages looked last night, right?
Every time I have to write about LeAnn RimesTwitter battle, I giggle out loud. The entire concept is something so completely foreign to me, and it reminds me of a passage from Dr. Seuss' wonderful book Fox in Socks, "Let's have a little talk about tweetle beetles….What do you know about tweetle beetles? Well…When tweetle beetles fight, it's called a tweetle beetle battle. And when they battle in a puddle, it's a tweetle beetle puddle battle." It's seriously what goes through my head every time. Every. Time.
When LeAnntweetle twitter battles, she does it with fans of her new husband's ex-wife, Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls'Brandi Glanville. Then she sues them. As we all know, LeAnn is suing a teacher who allegedly taped a conversation when the singer called to find out why said teacher was mean to her on Twitter. A great deal of swearing occurred on LeAnn's part. Now the teacher, Kimberly Smiley (any relation to Slade?) is asking for an extension to fight the suit, as she has been unable to raise enough money to hire an attorney.
The couple have been going back and forth, slinging around accusations of abuse and emergency orders left and right. Finally, it seems that sanity has won, and they are prepared to move forward with the best interests of their children in mind. What a novel idea!
It seems that Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif have already reached a custody agreement in their tumultuous divorce. If you recall the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star filed a restraining order against Paul and was given full custody temporarily when she made accusations that Paul was abusing his sons.
According to RadarOnline the couple has reached a new out-of-court agreement that is amicable to both parties and in the best interest of the children. "Adrienne and Paul and their respective lawyers met all day on Friday with a mediator, and they were able to come to a custody agreement," a source reveals.
"Paul had been requesting 50/50 custody arrangement, and he didn't get those terms. The boys will be with Adrienne majority of the time, with Paul being granted visitation, and there are layers of protection in the agreement to ensure the boys are in a safe environment," the source adds.
