A bunch of you have been gossiping in the comments about how everyone involved in the LeAnn Rimes Great Mistress Melee of 2012 basically lost their collective s**t today, following a no holds barred interview Brandi Glanville gave Us Weekly about how Rimes has an eating disorder and could have killed her stolen ‘bonus’ kids by leaving her laxatives laying around. Here’s an excerpt…
‘I know that my kids love her, and I know that she’s upset. I, unfortunately, don’t find her to be stable and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there… or at least the nanny, his parents, someone. Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le’s candies and got extremely ill. And Le’s candies are laxatives. It was a big f**king deal for me, and I lost my mind. Mason told me about it, and then Eddie’s assistant, who was working for me at the time, also told me about it out of concern for my children. I emailed, emailed, called, called [but] no answers. Couldn’t even discuss it. He refuses to even be in the same room as me. He can’t have a parent-teacher conference if I’m there. I don’t know how to do this when I can’t talk to the father of my children and his new wife. I don’t know what to do… LeAnn has a severe eating disorder. She has [a laxative] in every purse. Mason found one on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don’t keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy! He gets extremely sick, and that freaks me the f**k out.’
There’s a bunch more that I don’t have the room, the time, nor the inclination to parse but you can read it here. In short, Rimes is allegedly very sick with an eating disorder and her mental health makes her a liability around those kids.
Rimes’ rep responded with the weirdly non-specific: ‘Just more inaccuracies and half-truths.’
Immediately after which Eddie Cibrian remembered that this involves him too, so Rimes drafted and sealed with a kiss a reply for him to give to the media: ‘It is absolutely ridiculous that my ex-wife continues to put the personal lives of myself, LeAnn, our sons and my family on public display for the sake of her notoriety,’ said Cibrian.
Apparently. ‘[Brandi] is fully capable and has the means of contacting myself and LeAnn privately to discuss any matter concerning the children. The fact she chooses not to, should be pretty transparent. And while I do not wish to fuel her ever-igniting fire, there is a breaking point where enough is enough. My wife, LeAnn, continues to be a loving and positive influence on the lives of my sons. They are without a doubt lucky to have her. The love they have for their ‘bonus mom’ continues to grow each day as we navigate the changes to our family; a fact that Brandi cannot argue as she herself has stated as much. If my ex-wife truly cared about the welfare of our sons, she would stop the constant bashing on an important person in their lives and focus on productive co-parenting to make our blended family the strongest it can be. And she would do so privately. Let’s see.’
Glanville told Us Weekly she’s out of money for lawyers and polite communication is ignored: ’I don’t have communication with [Cibrian and Rimes] because I don’t get responses when I reach out. I only get responses when I put it on Twitter. Twitter seems to work. That is the life they chose.’
After which s**t got even more real because s**t always does when mistresses and bones are involved. Cibrian leaked an email to RadarOnline.com in which he called Glanville a drunk (if she’s a drinker, maybe it’s because the father of her kids left for a mistress 10-years Glanville’s junior). In retaliation, Glanville posted her response to Twitter but took it down because ’I was n defense mode after seeing EC put his on @radar_online Lets not talk of them anymore I was wrong 2 put it up.’
She defended her choices on Twitter earlier, saying: ‘Im not bitter Im concerned 4 MY kids,Im not n luv with EC n ANY way,Im happy 2 go BACK 2 therapy with them &PS I left him he didnt leave me.’ Here’s Glanville’s email reply to Cibrian that was also posted on RadarOnline in which Glanville calls Rimes a binge-drinker as well as a binge-pooper and she calls Cibrian spineless and defenseless against his second wife who has ‘severe mental issues.’ (Cibrian’s email is on the bottom and Glanville’ reply, from a few minutes later, is above it… click here for larger version).
