Brandi Glanville Declares All Out War on LeAnn Rimes' Parenting Skills

OMG 10

Brandi GlanvilleWow, everyone. JUST. WOW. If we thought we'd seen the low with Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes going at each other publicly, as they say in show biz, you ain't seen nothing yet. Though you'll see it now. (You can thank me later.) Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi gave an interview to US Weekly in which she ripped LeAnn a new one. Which, given that Brandi accuses LeAnn of being addicted to laxatives, is pretty scary.

I really don't know where to begin here, so let me just begin. First off, Brandi says that Mason, her 9-year-old son with ex-hubby Eddie Cibrian, found what he thought was a Skittle in stepmom LeAnn's purse but, oops!, it turned out to be a laxative. Unclear how many he ate, but apparently it made him "extremely ill." It only goes downhill from there. It's all-out WAR, folks.

Brandi says that Eddie and LeAnn refuse to communicate with her unless she puts out something on Twitter. So I guess this is why she gives this no-holds-barred interview to US Weekly. I guess.

Some of the lowlights:

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.

Then she talks about how she saw a video LeAnn had posted with her children. But her youngest son wasn't -- never mind, I'll let her tell it:

And I see Jakey, my 5-year-old, on a bike on Roundmeadow Road -- a very busy road where drunk drivers have crashed into their house ... He doesn't have a helmet on and he's driving without his training wheels, which he doesn't even do at my house.

Yikes. Drunk drivers. Bad Skittles. But there's more!

These are my children and I don't want this unstable person around them when she's alone ... I said to my friend yesterday, "I don't feel like she's stable." God forbid anything ever happened between her and Eddie. She uses my children as a tool to get to me, and I don't know if she cares about them the way that Eddie thinks she does.

Sooooooo ... anyone getting the feeling these two don't like each other? Just in case you were still uncertain about that, Brandi sums it all up with:

I haven't seen LeAnn in forever. I don't really want to right now.

Er, yeah. Probably a good idea. Well, I hope these three can learn to communicate on some level for the kids' sake. But it's not sounding so promising right now!

Do you think Brandi should have said all of this to the press?

This sounds like stuff she should be telling her lawyer, not the tabloids.

I think that she did the best she could. Leann taunts this woman EVERY DAY and the media turns a blind eye to it. The media should put more pressure on Eddie and Leann. Instead of blaming Brandi for talking, why not criticize Leann for continuing to taunt Brandi and putting her in a position where she has to go public. Leann did an interview with ENews, yet Leann and Darrell always want to whine about how Brandi is keeping this public? The media has also failed Brandi. People have been calling the media to take more of an active stand against Leann when she taunts Brandi. If Leann had stopped talking about Brandi's kids when she was asked 4 years ago, this wouldn't be an issue. Hopefully when Leann's interview airs and she exploits Brandi's kids, the media will call Leann on it.

Sounds, like Brandi is using the kids to get back at them. Plus their kids are old enough to rea that mommy is talking about their dad and his wife which is a big ol fail in my book

ImaSo... ImaSoulMom

A big ol fail is the constantly inappropriate things leann does around her stepkids. From using them as photo props to all the moronic things she has said to their mother. I doubt her boys will appreciate leann behaving this way toward their mother. She has said some nasty things and exhibited some disturbing behavior.

Yeah, because when normal parents think their children are in danger, the first thing they do is run to the tabloids. I'm sorry, I completely agree with TorranceMom, go to your lawyers if you think your children are in that much danger. I wonder how much she got paid for this scandelous interview?

hello... hellokd87

I think Brandi just still hasn't gotten over the fact that Leann "took her man". I'm sorry, but in my opinion, if you had such a happy marriage he wouldn't have left in the first place. Even if they were in a rut at the time, anything is going to look like the greener grass. He just so happened to end up falling for Leann enough to marry her. I think people have the biased view that she is a "homewrecker" so they side with Brandi more often than not. But seriously, even the mother to my fiancee's kids has more class than that. If you're so concerned with your kids, stop talking to everyone else and start talking to the people directly involved. Besides, how does she know Leann is "addicted to laxatives"? For all she knows she could have an indigestion problem that acts up with certain foods (or her lack of eating foods). She doesn't have eyes in that house so she doesn' t know Leann's life.

Now why would people think that Leann is a homewrecker? Could it possibly be because Leann released a song last month about how she was sleeping with Brandi's husband and gives exclusive interviews about those songs to ENews? It's more that Eddie hasn't gotten over Brandi and Leann takes it out on Brandi because she knows that Eddie wants Brandi back. We know that Leann is addicted to laxatives because Leann is constantly tweeting about things that are very common with laxative abuse. Kidney stones. Not finishing the end of her show without giving a proper explanation(she probably had to go to the bathroom really bad), Leann is always so public with her life, so we know exactly what she does every single day. Like how she is tweeting photos of her fireplace with the stockings of Brandi's kids names on it. This is the mean and nasty things that Leann does. And the media wants to blame Brandi for speaking up? How come no one is talking about Leann's tweet this morning? What type of person does this?

Ok... let say first off that I can't stand Leann. But really... how is posting pictures of stockings for her step-children mean and nasty? If my husband remarried for whatever reason... I would be happy that his new wife was nice to my children. And why is it so wrong to not having training wheels on your bike? Isn't the point to eventually have them off? The helmet issue... well... I personally think helmet are dangerous because they give children a false sense of security and they do more dangerous stuff that they wouldn't do if didn't have one. I was the clutziest kid in the world and fell off my bike hourly... and I never once hurt my head.

Jane Doherty

We all know that Eddie is a gigolo and is only with LeeAnn for publicity and $$$. If she lost her savings tomorrow, he'd be begging Brandi for a 2nd chance. Can you blame him? look at Brandi and look at LeeAnn (plus Brandi has a career now and is the mother of his children). They are lucky it was only a laxative her son found...that just goes to show that LeeAnn needs parenting classes rather than vow renewals.

Abbey Weisshaar

Brandi needs to quit worrying about her beef with Leann and do what she needs to to keep her boys safe and happy, and Leann needs to get it through her head that these are Brandi's children, not hers and quit using them for her own games.
