leann rimesLeAnn Rimes, you don't fool me for even half a second. The woman can bray on (and she will) about how she is her own person and doesn't want to be connected with Brandi Glanville forever, but we all know better. I mean, outside of the obvious fact that she is stepmother to Brandi's kids, it's clear LeAnn has every intention of taking Brandi's modicum of fame and redirecting it toward herself.

It's like that scene in The Mummy where mirrors are used to harness the sun's powers and close down the pyramid trapping everyone inside: LeAnn's machinations will surely be her end. If you doubt me, please hearken to what the lady has done this 'round in the "look at me, look at me" games she is so intent upon playing.

More from The Stir: Brandi Glanville's Unexpected Response to LeAnn Rimes' Twitter Rant Changes Everything

Mrs. Eddie Cibrian hopped on Twitter and began to kick up a storm, as she is so fond of doing. This time, her tactics were a little different. Rather than baiting Brandi, she played coy. LeAnn tweeted about her husband having "half-way" convinced her to do something "dangerous." Ugh, woman, please. I am not a toddler and thus my curiosity is not so easily piqued. (Yeah I am aware of the irony implicit in saying that and then WRITING A WHOLE ARTICLE ABOUT IT, but I am vast and contain multitudes.)

I don't know what Eddie has in mind for his little miss, but I doubt it's, like, a serial murder spree or anything truly shocking. Odds are Eddie just wants her to go skydiving or bungee jumping or something twee and Instagram-y. Why didn't LeAnn just come out and say it if she was going to tweet about it at all? Because if she did that, people might ignore her and pay more attention to Brandi, whose show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills JUST started back up again. I don't think that timing is coincidental. LeAnn is many things, but oblivious to the T.V. schedule of her ex's husband's wife is so not one of those things.

Do you think LeAnn is being deliberately obtuse in a bid to redirect our focus from Brandi to her?
