LeAnn Rimes' Childish Twitter Rant Reveals Her ‘Real Housewives’ Hate-Watching Habit

Eye Roll 13

leann rimesOh LeAnn! It takes a lot to stick up for the country music star who cheated on her husband with a married man. I've always liked her anyway, but sometimes she does something that makes it harder than ever to defend her. Like on Sunday: LeAnn made a jab at Brandi Glanville via Twitter for no reason at all. I guess she caught a promo for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mentioning Brandi that she just couldn't resist. Couldn't leave that one alone, could you, LeAnn? Even her fans called her out for it.

So here's what happened. Photographer Sara Hertel tweeted a line from the promo:


You'd have to have seen the promo to know that someone said this to Brandi Glanville. Apparently LeAnn knew. (Hmm, how? I thought she didn't watch that show ...) And she just had to retweet Sara. She just did a photo shoot with Sara, and maybe the gossipped a bit about Brandi -- but I bet Sara doesn't want to be painted as a Brandi-hater.


Tell us how you really feel, LeAnn! Because we don't know. We missed the other 40,000 times you told us you think Brandi is a liar, bad person, scourge upon the Earth, etc. Sara and other fans responded to LeAnn, basically saying come on girl, we thought you were above this. And LeAnn got defensive. Of course. I guess she's sick of holding her tongue and feels like it's important that the REAL TRUTH ABOUT BRANDI be told to the world. Like the world is keeping score and gives a shit.


No, actually, it's more like "you look the other way and don't even comment, you look like a bigger person with a life." Speaking truth to power matters if you're calling out a corrupt politician or demanding corporate responsibility. Otherwise, you just look petty. I thought LeAnn knew this!

Maybe she usually does ... maybe she had a little too much Chardonnay Sunday night. Can't you see it? LeAnn pouring herself another glass, cackling to herself, getting all worked up, feeling justified because of all the other times she's held her tongue. She tweets, realizes immediately it was a mistake. But because she's LeAnn, she's not going to just delete it. She's owning that mistake! She's going to embrace the emotional truth of the moment even if it was not at all worth expressing. SIGH. It just makes me feel tired thinking about it.

Well, there's always another day. Maybe Monday LeAnn got up, had her coffee, and thought: You know what? That was some bad Twitter mojo I got into last night. I re- re- re- I regrrrrrr ..." And then she stops there, because the words "I regret saying that" give LeAnn stomach pains. Maybe next time don't hate-watch Bravo/get on Twitter/drink Chardonnay all at the same time.

Are you surprised by LeAnn's tweets or does it sound like her business as usual?

Why did I read this? I regret reading this.

Just can't call myself a fan of hers any longer. It was bad enough the way she entered her relationship with her husband, but then to publicly taunt her step sons Mother the way she has is shameful. Especially when she claims she cares so much for those boy's. I am sure one day they will resent her for it too.

I'm not surprised at all. LeAnn's true colors are showing. She is a spiteful, mean, JEALOUS, ugly little girl who is STILL threatened by her husband's ex wife. I would be too, Brandi is stunning and 10 feet taller than LeAnn in more ways than one.

Leanne is known for that crap. She is so damn jealous of Brandi that she just can not stop herself. She wanted to steal Brandi's man and watch Brandi shrivel up and die. The opposite happened and she can't STAND it. What she doesn't realize is that Nobody gives A SHIT...MOVE ON!!

Vicki Campbell

That's what she's known for - her passive/aggressive tweets. She is so insanely jealous of Brandi that she can not stand it. She badly wanted to leave Brandi crying in the corner because she had an affair and married her husband. Instead, Brandi got up, brushed herself off, got over it and got a life. Actually a pretty good life, and Leanne is left with a worse than tarnished reputation, a career in the toilet, and a husband who cheats. Who's the winner here? I say Brandi, and Leanne CAN NOT stand it. You know what they say, Karma's a bitch.

I wish I could say I was surprised- Leann has no class left to speak of. She just had us all fooled... GAH I wish all her music was less catchy- LOL!

I remember how as young girl she was cute and sweet in her interviews. My how she as changed, both in personality and appearance. Today she comes off as self absorbed and smug, and it is as though her appearance has begun to match her personality, and not in a good way either.

Thank you for bring big enough to admit you can't even defend this brat anymore. I wouldn't follow you bcz I thought you bought her BS. Even if you don't like Brandi who can condone a woman that sought out to get a man at all costs, she finally got him bcz B threw him out and he went where the $ was even admitting how ugly she is. If I were Leann I would have sat back and understood the ex was going to bash me a bit, kept my mouth and it would have died down but nope! Not Leann she snd her staff/paid friends stalked and terrorized Brandi and enjoyed every second of it! Sick bitch! She has had a bad few days and I've watched every blogger, gossip site and many of her fans call her out and turn on her! The more success Brandi has the crazier she gets. Live or hate B I think she deserves all of the excitement coming her way! So you have a new follower! Thank you!!!!
