Hoo boy. The public venom between singer Leann Rimes and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville has been a-bubblin’ and a-boiling’ for over three years now, ever since Leann stole … uh, borrowed Brandi’s husband Eddie Cibrian without asking back in 2009. While their fighting faded into background noise a long time ago, the whole saga has taken an unexpectedly dark turn this week. “I remember walking up … and there she was with my baby in her lap,” Glanville told Australian magazine NW HQ about seeing Rimes with her ex and Brandi’s children for the first time. “My blood was boiling, and I thought I was going to kill her. I really thought I was going to physically hurt her.” Hmmm, that seems like something to tell your friends or your therapist, Brandi, not an entire continent.
Meanwhile, LeAnn allegedly considered getting a restraining order against Brandi for similar sentiments. “Brandi has told LeAnn to her face multiple times that she would kill her if she could,” a source claimed to Celebuzz. “LeAnn is scared of Brandi and believes she is unstable. LeAnn’s own mother is concerned for her daughter’s safety too and regularly calls her to tell her so.” To which we say, knock if off, you guys! “You guys” meaning anyone who continues to pay attention to this drama! Three years of public insanity is too much. Note: Do we understand that we’re basically undermining our own argument by even addressing their squabbling? Yes, but today’s developments seemed so insane we had to say something. There has to be something better for these two to do. Isn’t “How Do I?” due for a remake, LeAnn? Isn’t Sydney just dying for its own RH franchise, Brandi?

Look out, because we might have a good ol’ fashioned Disney Dad Throw-Down on our hands. Demi Lovato’s estranged father Patrick has not been shy with his opinions that the break-neck Hollywood lifestyle is to blame for his daughter’s emotional collapse. In fact, he’s been talking about it so much that he has received numerous death threats.
And you know what? All of Patrick’s talk about his daughter’s problems has rubbed Michael Lohan the wrong way. You remember Michael Lohan, right? He’s the guy who became famous for talking about his daughter’s problems in the press. Having regained his parental cred by being permitted to spend time with his institutionalized daughter Lindsay, Mike decided to offer some pearls of wisdom to another dad in a tough spot.
“There are two reasons why I have no respect for people who talk or comment about others,” Michael told Popeater. “First, it’s because, in most cases, those individuals are looking from the outside in, and they are passing judgment or commenting on people they know nothing about. The second reason is because they are too cowardly to say it to the person themselves.”
We’ll let that sink in for a moment. Michael Lohan went to the press and criticized Demi’s dad for talking to the press, despite the fact that Michael himself said he would stop talking to the press in an interview with the press OH MY GOD STOP THIS CRAZY THING!
Michael also issued a warning to Patrick, should he dare to compare Demi with Lindsay. “I ask Demi Lavato’s father to refrain from making asinine statements about my daughter, or say it to my face himself,” he said. “And if so, I will pay for the transportation and his hospital bills.”
We think that would be an incredible fight. There would be no winners, but two losers.
