Somewhere, Brandi Glanville's reconstructed vayjay just got even tighter. Her arch rival LeAnn Rimes has let it slip that Brandi's two children call her "Mom" sometimes. Brandi has made her not-very-warm feelings towards LeAnn known (over and over again), so that bit of news can't be too welcome. LeAnn told Fabulous magazine about Brandi's kids with LeAnn's husband Eddie Cibrian: "Sometimes they’ll blurt out: 'Mom!' but I just go with whatever they call me. As long as it’s nice and respectful, I couldn’t care less." Couldn't care less? Something tells me she loves it.

We all remember when Brandi got her tight vayjay in a twist because LeAnn called Brandi's kids, Jake and Mason, "my boys." That particular comment flared a Twitter war, with Brandi firing back:

Someone is trying 2 get under my skin by calling MY children "her boys" Sooo transparent! They R MY boys, Eddie Boys and ur step-sons... 4 now.

I can only imagine how this whole "Mom" thing is going to go down. The difference is that this time it's the kids doing the calling, not LeAnn. So if Brandi is determined that there be only one Mom on the planet for Jake and Mason, and that mom is not LeAnn, then someone has to have a talk with them. Something tells me LeAnn isn't going to do it. And why should Brandi do it, given that it's not really her job either?

Does anyone need to do it? Perhaps the kids just say it by accident. They're still little, only 5 and 9. No doubt they know who their mother is and who their stepmother is, but they slip up sometimes. Is it really that important to make sure they keep it straight?

I don't think so. Once they get older, they'll become much more aware of who is called "Mom" and who is not called "Mom." They've already dealt with the break-up of their family and trying to get to know Daddy's new wife and splitting their time between two households. They don't need more rules thrown at them right now.

But if they ever call their mother "LeAnn," then I'm pretty sure Brandi's going to be speechless for once.

Do you think kids should be told not to call a stepmother "Mom"?
