Sooo… what is going on here? What tricks does ol' Le-Le have up her sleeves now?
Weeks afterBrandi Glanville came out in full-force accusing LeAnn Rimes of being addicted to adderall, alcohol, and pooper pills – all charges LeAnn adamantly denied – and mere days before Brandi's scandalous book blowing the lid off LeAnn andEddie Cibrian's scheming and homewrecking behavior hits shelves; LeAnn showed up at the Grammy's with some meat on her bones. Finally!
It's been much discussed how shortly after taking up with Eddie, LeAnn started SWF-ing the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star by shedding tons of weight, get identical boob implants, and directly copying from Brandi's wardrobe. LeAnn, formerly a normal-sized girl, kept up the charade for years.
The more Brandi talks about her ex and his new wife, the more stories we're going to hear about LeAnn trying to find her inner strength in the midst of personal turmoil. Gag me with a bony arm and a violin…although, technically in LeAnn's case it would be a fiddle, right? Let the insanity ensue!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville continues to tweet up a storm in between bashing her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his wifey LeAnn Rimes as she promotes her new book Drinking & Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders. Her book is set to hit shelves on Tuesday, February 12. Her most recent rant? She wants to set the record straight regarding rumors that she cheated on Eddie during their marriage.
Of course, then she needed to re-set the record straight when many fans and followers pointed out that she did, in fact, date before her divorce was finalized. It's like a strange conversation with herself that she broadcasts for everyone to see. I do so love some Brandi tweets though. Even when she only has 140 characters, she manages to be extremely unfiltered.
The battle between Adrienne Maloof and Brandi Glanville rages on! In response to Brandi recently revealing that Adrienne's ex-husband Paul Nassif apologized to her over the lawsuit – and for some of his behaviors, Adrienne is speaking out and she is feeling anything but contrite!
“It’s the ultimate betrayal,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells Life & Style. “It’s extremely hurtful.” Apparently Brandi and Paul have forged something of a friendship in the last two months – even exchanging text messages – and Adrienne finds Brandi's motives to be extremely suspect!
“I believe getting close to Paul is a ploy on Brandi’s part to make herself more relevant," Adrienne elaborates. “I feel the sudden friendship with him was thought out and vindictive.”
Now that she's on her book tour for her new tome "Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders," Brandi seems to be back on the shock value train where she speaks without thinking…and then continues to speak, and chat, and talk, and–just let it rest already! Brandi doesn't seem to realize that she has the upper hand in this situation if she would just close her mouth. LeAnn will implode all on her own. Brandi won't go down with her if she would just hush. Am I the only one who feels this way?
I can hear my mom's words of wisdom echoing in my ears…"If he'll cheat with you, he'll cheat on you!" Granted, I've never cheated with–or on–anyone (but, well, there was high school. Does that count?), but it's advice that totally translates into the grown-up world. However, can we technically call LeAnn Rimes an adult? She's constantly tearlessly crying in interviews about never having the opportunity to be a child, so perhaps she's regressed. Regardless, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is likely smug upon hearing this latest gossip.
A quick breakdown (as if y'all need it): Brandi's husband Eddie Cibrian cheated on her with SUR waitress Scheana Marie Jancan (that is no one's given name!). When Eddie then cheated with LeAnn, Scheana went to the press to complain about how heartbroken she was when her affair ended because Eddie found another mistress. High five, Brandi! You came out on top of this cluster for sure!
I don't know about you, but I find it very fishy that this news is coming to light way after it acutally happened. Funny how Bravo is trying to promoteLisa Vanderpump's(love her!) new show Vanderpump Rules on which Scheana plays a bullied, overly sexed, wannabe pop star waitress…It's what publicity stunts are made of, right?
Gracious though, when you read Sheana's interview, which occurred after her sit-down with Brandi, you'll shake your head and wonder if she has a publicist. Sheana is still taking shots at Brandi while playing the victim. Um, I'm sorry. I don't care how horrid the woman was whose husband you were bedding, you're still the other woman. She can call you names, and she can be mean to you. You slept with her husband! I'm speaking to Scheana in first person because she strikes me as the type of fame hungry girl that will read every blog written about her. Scheana, I'm not hating, I'm just trying to give you some sincere feedback. Oh, and by the way, NEVER record that breathy porn song you sang on Vanderpump Rules. The world, and iTunes, sends their thanks.
Whether it's a Twitter battle or a photo op war, these women love to let everyone know their issues. It's brilliant–it keeps them both in the media (remember Leann's "tearful" interview–with no real tears–where she hated to be called a homewrecker in light of her true love?), and, selfishly, it makes me giggle. Given her first stint on RHOBH, I would never think I'd be Team Brandi, but I totally am. Forgive me in advance for a pro-Brandi post. These ladies are cray. I would love the opportunity to drink wine with them one day…in the same room, of course. Clearly I'd wear a helmet.
Call me crazy, but I don't think this feud between LeAnn Rimes and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville is going to end any time soon. I know things were looking up about a year or so ago, but then LeAnn decided that Twitter was her new reality and started trying to turn her followers against an equally Twitter-obsessed Brandi. Recently, LeAnn sought treatment for her Twitter addiction, cried crocodile tears during an exclusive television interview about how she didn't have a normal childhood and the term "home wrecker" is so clichè and hurtful. Brandi, meanwhile, is promoting her new book and starring on a hit Bravo show.
While LeAnn claims she just wants a settled, drama-free life with Eddie Cibrian and her "bonus children," she can't seem to keep her new husband's former wife's name out of her mouth. Of course, talking about Brandi may be better than singing on the X Factor. Ba-doom ching! I kid, I kid. I think it was very admirable of LeAnn to do everything in her power to make sure that little girl looked so amazing in comparison…not that she needed any help.
LeAnn is now claiming to be flattered that Brandi is so caught up in her life. Um, what? She's also conveniently promoting her new song "Borrowed" which is a blatant dig at her husband's ex while painting a picture of her affair with Eddie. It's not exactly Christmas music. You just can't make up this stuff!
