A few days ago, I was a card-carrying member of Team Brandi Glanville. In fact, I was actually in talks to be the president of her fan club. But I'm resigning. I'm handing over my card, and inquiring as to whether or not I can get my membership fees back. Because I'm over Brandi.
You know how this week, there's been an all-out Twitter war between Brandi and LeAnn Rimes, because of a comment LeAnn made about Brandi's kids? (She called them "my boys".) Much of the war, understandably, has been fueled by Brandi -- Brandi's called LeAnn a sociopath; she's said Eddie will eventually leave her; and accused LeAnn of taking laxatives. Well, now Brandi's saying that she no longer wants to fight with LeAnn in public.
I think if the phrase "a day late and a dollar short" was ever appropriate, now would be that time.
Brandi told Us Weekly the following:
My intention has always been to take care of my children and tend to their well-being. I don't have communication with [Eddie and LeAnn] because I don't get responses when I reach out. I only get responses when I put it on Twitter. Twitter seems to work. I have not, and do not, wish to engage in a battle fought through the media. My hope is that now that I have my ex-husband’s attention, I also can get his and his wife’s commitment to work with me to co-parent our children in a most loving, safe and supportive fashion.
Okay, well, you have engaged in a battle fought through the media -- and you just said you reach out to them via Twitter!
I don't doubt that Brandi's in an extremely frustrating position -- and that she has her children's best interests in mind. But to try to all of a sudden act like she's totally above airing her dirty laundry is ridiculous. She's writing a book about her divorce, for crissake! And she talks about Eddie and LeAnn on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills all the time. I get that it's her life, and what she's going through, but it's obvious there's a small (or big?) part of her that loves the attention.
Do you think Brandi likes the media attention?
