Aaaahhh… Brandi Glanville vs LeAnn Rimes. If ever there were two people who needed their own reality show. If you aren't up to speed on what's been happening here's a brief rundown: Brandi was once married to a fine gentleman named Eddie Cibrian, who left her for LeAnn – once a mistress now a wife.
LeAnn starts copying everything Brandi does and has been allegedly harassing her on Twitter. She amasses an army of regular folk to join in on the bashing. Brandi hates LeAnn but wants to make fake nice for her kids…. sometimes. LeAnn likes dryhumping Brandi's ex-husband in front of staged paparazzi and her step-sons. Brandi no likey. Brandi also no likey LeAnn.
LeAnn, who recently entered a thirty day treatment center for anxiety, is now embroiled in a lawsuit with a teacher and mother of six due to a Twitter battle between pro-Brandi followers and pro-LeAnn followers. The singer (former singer?) filed a suit against high school teacher Kim Smiley for invasion of privacy after Kim allegedly recorded a phone conversation between herself and LeAnn regarding Brandi.
Now, there are so many different tabloid rumors swirling about the uber-wealthy housewife, from her crumbling friendships to her faltering empire to her headline-making divorce. Are things ever going to go back to normal for the woman I once considered to be too down-to-earth for the over-the-top franchise?
I can't. I just can't. The Real Housewives of Orange County may be the original housewives (although most aren't, in fact, wives), but sometimes they are also the most ridiculous. Let's take Gretchen Rossi, for example. She's not a wife–and with Slade Smiley as her beau she may never be one–but, like her counterparts, she loves to talk about whatever it takes to keep her in the spotlight.
For example, last week, Gretchen was yapping about how former best friend/current nemesis Alexis Bellinocopied her hairstyle…because that's news. This week, Gretchen is sharing with us her workout routine while applauding herself for overcoming bulimia. Wait…didn't Alexis say she struggled with bulimia growing up when the ladies took a quick trip to Texas during season six? Who is the copycat now, Gretch?
It's an understatement to say that LeAnn Rimes is having one helluva week. What should've been a fun week as she turned 30, turned into one filled with lawsuits and rehab!
LeAnn'srep shared this morning that she had entered a 30-day treatment program for stress and anxiety. "LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress. While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated."
Aaaahhh… it doesn’t get any better than this. I love a good Single White Female drama, don’t you? LeAnn Rimes (who apparently had a career before twitter entered her life) is the homewrecking harlot who stoleBrandi Glanville‘s man.
Instead of just, you know, fading peacefully into the sunset with her borrowed husband, LeAnn has made it her life’s work to make Brandi’s life a living hell. Didn’t this person win a Grammy at one point? #MyHowTheMightyHaveFallen
LeAnn has been accused of all sorts of shenanigans including setting up fake twitter accounts to harass the poor Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. And now that she’s also turned her crazy witchy woman ways towards some of her former fans, they are giving her a taste of her own medicine.
Amid a zillion accusations that she’s a slut and doing the nasty in Splits Richards‘ bathroom during THE annual White Party, it emerges that Brandi Glanville and her xanax lovin’ self has found a new man. Oh, girl – get it!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star who is known for her wild child ways (and SWF ex-husband’s new wife) has been quietly dating real estate agent Jonathan Ruiz. And just how did they meet? Surprisingly it was through Mauricio Umansky! Kyle did something nice for someone? I refuse to believe it. All Kyle can do is splits and whine.
I’ll be honest, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is the hardest show for me to watch, yet it’s also my favorite of the franchise. Adrienne Maloof and her husband Dr. Paul Nassif had my heart early on…they seem very down to earth to be on a show where the women eat diamonds and cocktail hour begins at breakfast. The RHOBH women are on another level from their Bravo counterparts. Maybe that is why it’s so hard to see some of our faves floundering in their personal lives.
Case in point? Adrienne and Paul. Their constant bickering was funny during the first season, but now, as we approach season 3, it’s become sad. It was no surprise when the news broke of the couple’s separation. The duo seems to love one another, but yet neither can miss the opportunity to call out the others’ weaknesses. That’s not good for a marriage, I guess.
