Well, trading barbs on Twitter and spilling stories about death threats and eating disorders to the tabs hasn’t been doing much to boost the reputations of either Brandi Glanville or LeAnn Rimes — not to mention the kind of lasting damage this is going to have on Glanville and Eddie Cibrian’s kids. So it’s about time LeAnn tried something completely different: Winning this war through kindness and compassion. Or something like that.
The country singer recently sat down with Giuliana Rancic for E! Special: LeAnn Rimes, which will air on Sunday, and spoke in a very different tone than her acerbic tweets have expressed. In an excerpt of the interview posted last night, Rimes talks about the aftermath of meeting and falling in love with Cibrian on the set of a movie in 2009, when both were married to other people.
“I wish I handled it differently because I wish I could have been better for me, for Brandi, for Dean [Sheremet, her ex-husband], for Eddie and for everyone else,” she says, as soothing spa-like music plays in the background. “I know, in this situation, it’s going to take some time. All I wish is that everyone that was hurt, that we hurt, that I hurt, can be happy.”
It looks like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills might be getting a facelift. Camille Grammer has already admitted that she won’t be returning for the latest series of the reality show, but apparently star Kyle Richards is still on the fence, too! “We’ll see,” she told Celebuzz when asked if she’ll show up for a new season. “It kind of depends which girls are coming back.” Uh oh. Sounds like the feuds between the ladies are getting even uglier than ever. “Let’s just say there are more than a few women who truly don’t get along,” a source confirmed. “[There are] two in particular that threaten they won’t return if the other does.”
Kyle isn’t the only cast member whose job is up in the air. “Friend of the Housewives” Brandi Glanville hasn’t officially signed on yet, either. “I’ll know in two weeks,” she says. But at least she sounds supportive of her fellow reality-mates. In fact, she admits to being “so sad” that Camille isn’t returning. “She’s my girl! We had such a great time last season.” So we guess all isn’t catty behind the scenes at RHWBS. Maybe they’ll bump her up to a full fledged “Housewife”! Time will tell…

We’re gonna go out on a limb here and say that the Real Housewives women are the worst thing to happen to the institution of marriage since Kim Kardashian. Want proof? OK: Brandi Glanville had a spur of the moment quickie wedding in Las Vegas for reasons that can best be described as “spite.” The Real Housewife of New Jersey star tied the knot with her friend and manager Darin Harvey last weekend in the Spearmint Rhino strip club.
“I’m married again- suuuuuuuck it!” she posted to her twitter, apparently a no-so-veiled dig at her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, whose affair with singer LeAnn Rimes lead to their divorce in 2009. “Honeymoons with strippers are the best,” she continued. But the next morning her new husband dismissed their union as “a drunken BFF thing” and doesn’t intend to follow through. “I had a crazy Vegas moment,” he wrote on his own twitter feed. “Getting annulled tomorrow,” he says, thus making Brandi a fake housewife once again. Despite this, Brandi calls the whole caper “super fun.”
But Brandi isn’t the only Real Housewife to take a massive “reality show” on matrimony. When appearing on Good Morning America this morning to promote her new book, Kyle Richards defended her views that you shouldn’t tell your significant other if you cheat on them, provided it only happens once. “You get a free pass,” she writes in Life Is Not a Reality Show: Keeping It Real With the Housewife Who Does It All.
Brandi Glanville may have ended her feud with LeAnn Rimes, but it looks like she’s got new beef with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. According to TMZ, Brandi’s joining Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (irony!) and Eddie doesn’t want their kids anywhere near the cameras. Allegedly Brandi finds this a little ironic, considering the two boys will appear with Rimes in Cibrian in People, but Ed’s threatening to go legal if she doesn’t relent.
Adding to insult to injury is LeAnn herself, who tweeted yesterday in anticipation of her first “Bonus Mom” Day this weekend (“Our set makeup artist Mario gave flowers to all the moms for mother’s day. SO sweet I had some sitting in my trailer when I got here today”). Yes, she hasn’t been married to Cibrian—the man she was banging before he split from Glanville—for even a month, and she’s already publicly co-opting Mother’s Day. Whether those kids actually appear on Housewives, these two are certainly giving Brandi plenty to talk about.
Jeez, America! Can’t you just let LeAnn Rimes sleep with that other woman’s husband in peace already? After months of animosity, Rimes and Brandi Glanville end their Twitter feud….which they seem to forget that they started? “As a collective unit, Brandi and I would like all negativity to cease toward one another,” Rimes tweeted, and Brandi retweeted. “We have communicated and have a direct understanding that we are ONLY ourselves on Twitter and have no other accounts that try to destroy one another. Please for our families’ sake stop the hate now and let us live OUR lives. We don’t need opinions or outside help in order for that to happen. Thanks, LeAnn and Brandi.” Oh right, we forgot that it was LeAnn and Brand’s followers who revealed her fiance Eddie Cibrian isn’t paying his child support, how Glanville slashed his tires or how Rimes fought with Wendy Williams. You all should be truly ashamed of yourselves.
Whether they want to address it or not, the two lovely ladies have been at each other’s throats on more than one occasion. After all, Glanville and Rimes have been feuding since fall of 2009, and blaming everyone else for it since, well, it became convenient to do so. All joking aside, we will gladly stop haranguing Rimes and Glanville. Besides, they’ve done an excellent job of it on their own.
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian might want to stop pimping their storybook romance—LeAnn only ends up looking like the Wicked Witch. First Shape caught grief for praising LeAnn’s husband-stealing ways in November, and now Eddie’s ex Brandi Glanville is telling the world he had his child support payments shrunk before buying LeAnn’s $85k engagement ring. Considering his alleged income drop, it’s possible he merely consented to the rock’s purchase, but either way…not a good look, guys.
“Look, I don’t mind that he got her a ring but the timing wasn’t obviously the best and the truth is the communication is not great right now,” said Glanville, who also claims her children with Cibrian learned about the engagement through the media. “I did try some counseling with LeAnn, but it did not go so well for one reason or another,” she told Radar. Gee, maybe it’s because LeAnn is letting her ex live in luxury while claiming poverty to the court? Hope these two aren’t planning a lavish, tabloid-covered wedding! Actually, we kind of hope they are.

rnrnDid LeAnn Rimes get a boob job? She seems to be filling out her cups a lot more than usual, so that’s the question everyone seems to be asking. There’s no doubt that LeAnn’s bikini bod is banging! She’s toned, taut and has abs the rest of us can only dream about. Walking around in an itty-bitty two piece in Cabo while she was on holiday around the New Year with fiance Eddie Cibrian, the singer inadvertently revealed a certain anatomical anomaly which has the boob buzz going.rnrnIt certainly looks like she did, because bikini’s don’t hide much and she’s definitely looking more well-endowed than usual (as evidenced by our picture above: the left was taken on December 30, while the right is from March 2008). And one look at her would dispel any notions of weight gain causing the increase in her bra size because, well, just look at her! She’s ripped and there seems to be no excess weight on her. Except the boobs, that is. rn Read more…
