Oh gracious. Would I be totally remiss to suggest that maybe Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville and her nemesis/frenemy/mistress turned wife of her ex-husband LeAnn Rimes could possibly in cahoots to get twice the attention? I mean, first LeAnn checks into rehab because she loses a Twitter battle (Lindsay Lohan, take note) to Brandi's zombie followers, and the next thing you know, there is a rumor circulating that the real reason for the former singer's "exhaustion and anxiety" is that LeAnn's hubby Eddie Cibrian is cheating on his current wife with his former wife. Follow? I don't blame you.
If you think about it, it's truly a diabolical plan, and it benefits both of them. Brandi gets to enact her revenge on her skeezy husband and his homewrecking new wife, while LeAnn finally appears oh-so-slightly sympathetic. Kind of. If you can over look the fact that she got into a Twitter war with commoners. So no, not really. At all.
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.
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.
Is she an alcoholic or isn’t she an alcoholic? Is she being phased out of the show or is she not being phased out of the show? Is she a member of the Ford dynasty or is she not a member of the Ford dynasty? There is an intervention planned. There is not an intervention planned. If all of this back and forth continues, I may have a meltdown Taylor Armstrong style.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sources have been speculating for weeks about Taylor’s terrible drinking problem and the intervention her fellow cast mates were planning. The rumor mill has been a buzz over a drunken Taylor at Portia’s fourth birthday party and her booze-fueled meltdown during a recent spa trip. A source even told Perez Hilton, “The entire cast will be filming together this week and the plan is for the ladies to confront Taylor about her growing dependence on alcohol.”
The drama never seems to end with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast mate Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes, the wife of her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. Neither of the women really help the cause when they won’t stop bringing the other up on social media and in the press. The latest quote from Brandi on how horrible LeAnn is comes to us from NW HQ, an Australian magazine.
The Huffington Post reports Brandi will definitely be added to next season’s cast as a full-time Housewife and that filming with her kids had little to do with Bravo’s decision to hire her! “Bravo signed up Brandi, not her children,” an insider reveals. “They love her personality and willingness to talk freely about anything without having to consult managers and PR agents.”
“She for sure will be a full-time Housewife next season. Filming is going so well she might end up being the new star of the show,” the insider adds.
And the rumor that Brandi was fired for not being able to have her kids on film is just that a rumor! “In fact the opposite is true,” the insider shared. “In the past, cast members have tried so hard to get their kids on camera to make them famous and it has never worked out.”
The insider even alleges that Bravo finds family-centric storylines boring! “You never see Adrianne Maloof’s children and whenever the story line has focused on the kids, it has become dull very quickly. Anyone that tells you they do not want to be part of the show because they are protecting their children is simply not telling you the truth.”
Well, it seems that Brandi and Eddie are still working out the terms of whether or not their children will be featured in the show. At a recent soccer game for their son, Brandi and Eddie were seen arguing and Brandi threatened to take him to court over the matter! A witness describes their exchange as a “hostile confrontation.” See – that’s why Bravo wants her. She’s willing to engage in a “hostile confrontation” in public, at a children’s soccer game. Oh, lawd.
For those of you who thought the dramatic antics of a one Taylor Armstrong on RHOBH couldn’t get any worse, think again. Last season she really started her downward spiral, but it seems to be continuing as the ladies film the third installment of the hit Bravo show. Taylor’s drinking was out of control as she struggled with her marital problems with Russell, but now that he’s committed suicide, her issues seem to have escalated. Of course, in reality world, that means impromptu intervention!
A Bravo source tells Radaronline.com, “The entire cast will be filming together this week and the plan is for the ladies to confront Taylor about her growing dependence on alcohol. It will be the first time that the cast will be together since Portia’s birthday party when Taylor got obscenely drunk. It was very alarming and distressing for Kyle [Richards], Kim [Richards], and the other ladies to see. It struck a chord in particular with Kim who was recently released from rehab, and she is extremely concerned for Taylor, everyone is. The cameras will be rolling when the ladies express their concern for Taylor’s drinking, the latest incident with her getting drunk at a little girl’s birthday party was the last straw, especially because Taylor’s daughter, Kennedy was also at the party and saw her mother in that state.”
