A mother's protective instinct is no joke. We've all heard the stories of women lifting cars off their children or fighting off some big, burly attacker. But it doesn't take something that dire for grizzly mom to appear. Case in point: The feud between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville and Giuliana Rancic. It all began when Brandi went after Giuliana's infant son Duke. That is when the E! News host unleashed her claws and understandably so.
The spat started after Giuliana was asked which side she was on -- Brandi's or LeAnn Rimes's (the woman Brandi's ex Eddie Cibrian left her for). She made a clearly pro-LeAnn comment on her show Fashion Police. Of course Brandi didn't appreciate that one bit.
"[After that, Brandi] went out and tweeted something, and she said, 'How would you like if your husband left you behind -- you and your surrogate baby,'" Giuliana, who had a baby via a gestational carrier last summer, explained on Watch What Happens. Well, the new mom wasn't about to take that lying down. "Here's the thing: say what you want to me -- don't ever bring my baby into that, ever," she added. "I love Beverly Hills, and I love all the Housewives, but I will cut Brandi if she talks about my baby again."
Never thought I would hear something like that out of the mouth of the dainty TV personality. But every mom understands why Brandi's comments set her off. She clearly crossed a line. I don't know a woman who wouldn't be pissed off by that. It's one thing to lash out at another grownup, but why bring an innocent baby into it. It was cruel and hurtful, not just to Giuliana and her husband, but to that child. As parents, we will fiercely protect and defend our children against anyone who does or says something that will make them feel different. We don’t want anyone messing with our kids for any reason. Brandi better keep her mouth shut or otherwise steer clear of Giuliana if she knows what's good for her.
What do you think of Giuliana's threat?
