The Real Housewives of Beverly Hill's Brandi Glanville was in New York City over the weekend for 'promotional appearances' — also known as working on Celebrity Apprentice — when her son, with LeAnn's current husband Eddie Cibrian — had to be rushed to the hospital for an undisclosed illness. Leave it to the always classy LeAnn Rimes to respond to the news that her stepson is in the hospital by tweeting her feelings about the situation to her hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers.
Let me start by giving her a little credit – this is not a flattering picture, trust me that Brandi was looking good on the show last night. Her hair is a softer blonde now and that "filler puff" is going away a little more each time we see her. The photo angle is bad, but her outfit was cuter than it looks here and the color was good on her.
Ross starts off with: "Your ex-husband is suing you for…"
Ross: "Child support? So, you marry a big TV star and you give up your modeling career." As Ross says "big TV star" Brandi makes a face and sort of shakes her head "no" at that part and he asks about it. She says "then why does he want MY money?"
Surprise, surprise! There's more to this whole Brandi Glanville child support drama – and it might show that she's NOT lying as Eddie Cibrian claims.
One of the most maddening things about Real Housewives drama is that we only get bits and pieces of stories and we are constantly finding out new developments over the days that follow. If we wait to tell the WHOLE story as it unfolded, we could be waiting days, weeks, or months even to share it.
The Brandi Glanville child support saga is one of those examples. Instead of Tweeting exactly what's up, Brandi just Tweets that Eddie is asking her for child support, but doesn't offer much detail because there wouldn't be as many stories if she gave it to us one coherent chunk, right? They need to squeeze as much out of this as possible. So, Eddie responded last night that she's lying. Only she might not be lying, he's just wording things carefully.
Well, that didn't take long! Brandi Glanville shouted from the Twitter rooftops this week that Eddie Cibrian was making her life a legal hell. Brandi claimed that Eddie was trying to get her to pay child support to him for their two boys, Mason and Jake.
Eddie, who usually stays mum while his wife and his ex-wife battle it out in the media, released a statement through his rep. Eddie basically says Brandi is a liarface.
"I dedicate this book to all the men I've loved before and to all the single people looking for love in this world: keep hope alive, learn from my mistakes, and by all means #KeepItSexy," Brandi begins after telling us P.S. "Social media is ruining romance". Yes, Brandi and so are drunken tabloid photos.
With an introduction titled "How To Get Screwed" (the first line of which is "F–k me."), you know you're in for a wild ride! Brandi gives a ton of anecdotes and continues with her theme of interweaving hashtags throughout the text as if twitter truly is writing this book.
A snippet of the introduction and the first chapter are below!
What can I say about Brandi Glanville that hasn't already been said? She over shares? Yup. She has no filter? Duh. She has no problem throwing people under the bus? Check. Really nothing that comes out of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star's mouth shocks me anymore.
If you watch RHOBH, you know Brandi makes no secret about her financial situation. Even with her best-sellers, her bank account isn't even in the same stratosphere as her co-stars. I'm a flip-flopping Brandi fan, but I do like how candid she is about her struggles with money. She may not have the most, but she works hard for what she has…unlike when she was married to Eddie Cibrian.
Bravo has created its fair share of monsters, no doubt about it. However, what's a gal to do when it creates two monsters, and those monsters start feuding very publicly about feminine hygiene? With whom do you side? It's a conundrum, I tell you!
