Here's an interesting question. If Twitter didn't exist, would LeAnn Rimes? The country singer loves to stir up the drama and will use any excuse to draw attention to herself on the social network. Her latest move? It involves Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, of course, and worse, it involves Brandi's kids, too. Here's what went down.
TooFab caught it all before LeAnn went on a deleting spree. It started out with Brandi tweeting to Eddie:
Ive been trying to get a hold of my kids 4 over an hour no response to my calls ,emails or messages. Maybe twitter will work.
Obviously, Brandi was worried about her boys and reached out to their father, not their stepmother, to get some answers.
But LeAnn couldn't let sleeping dogs lie and decided to get involved and get defensive. She tweeted:
Funny, she just got off the phone w/ them. Sorry, we were doing baths, homework & dinner. All good!
the phone rang, I picked it up. Never saw this til after. All you gotta do is call
She quickly deleted those two tweets and decided to take her version of the high road and say:
I don't do drama, I do music.
Can someone pass me a handkerchief? The irony is getting so thick I need to wipe clean m'glasses.
Evidently, LeAnn will stop at nothing to get her name out there. She's using Brandi's simple request about her children to lash out, and for no reason whatsoever.
But LeAnn needs to give herself more credit ... she does do drama, and she does it really, really well. And I assume she'll only turn it up now that her album's a few weeks from hitting stores.
The more she can use Brandi and Brandi's children to get her name in the press, the more hope she thinks she has of people buying her album.
One thing's for sure -- I'm not buying her drama, or her music.
What do you think of LeAnn's tweets?
