LeAnn Rimes recently insisted that she was done apologising for having an affair with Eddie Cibrian a few years back, but instead of letting sleeping dogs lie and trying to move on with her life, she’s pretty much written an entire album of songs about Brandi Glanville and is talking about it in interviews again. God help us all.
Little LeAnn told US Weekly that she was so distraught over the whole affair that she felt “disgusted” with herself about it – though of course, she didn’t feel bad enough to f-cking stop, so talk to the hand.
“I think I opened up the can of worms for myself by writing this record,” she tells Us. “There were a lot of things I didn’t even realize I was feeling…I needed to go somewhere and really process all of that stuff.”
“That stuff,” of course, includes the fallout from her affair with now-husband Cibrian. After Us Weekly broke the news of the Northern Lights costars’ tryst, Rimes hit bottom.
“I was feeling all these crazy emotions and feeling terrible about myself and was disgusted by myself and thought I was pathetic,” she says. (In fact, she uses some of those very words in songs on her new album. “Borrowed,” for example, looks into the darker moments of falling in love with a married man and includes lyrics like, “I don’t want to give you back.”)
Oh, brother. Just shut up already.
In what may be the strangest Twitter exchange in ages, Courtney Love has risen from her drug tomb to stick up for LeAnn Rimes after she got into another spat with Brandi Glanville. Here’s how it went down, Brandi complained via a tweet that she couldn’t get a hold of her kids, so LeAnn responded with some hippie bullshit and then Courtney piped up out of nowhere offering to whoop somebody’s ass if they didn’t leave her alone. Oh, and Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20 got in on the action. Yeah, I don’t know, either.
First of all, props to LeAnn for using a spat with Brandi to promote new music… which will invariably suck, but can’t knock the hustle. Second of all, da fuck, Rob Thomas? Where the hell did you even come from? What are you doing, man? Third of all, Courtney Love is a queen and was probably high off her ass writing this, but I love her anyway. The end.
Here’s something that will shock you: Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes don’t get along. They never have, they never will, nothing will ever change. There are no new developments in their relationship, nothing new has happened… and yet they’re both still talking about it. You’d think, after LeAnn made a final “I’m done apologizing!” statement last month that she was finally ready to move on with her life, but you’d be wrong, because she’s got more to say and it’s something you’ve never heard before (kidding, you’ve totally heard it a million times).
Eddie’s ex-wife, Brandi, has been pretty vocal about her feelings for you. What’s your relationship like now?
That’s where you write “insert face reaction here”.
Eek… That doesn’t sound good.
It’s been really difficult. You have to stand up for yourself and be your own person, but at the same time you have to protect these children and their hearts. And that’s a very tough balance.
Do you have any regrets?
I don’t like that word. Do I wish I handled it differently? Absolutely. No one wants to hurt anyone or put themselves through hurt. I think the only other thing we could’ve done would have been to get out of our marriages before anything happened. It was tough, and it all happened very fast. I felt so ashamed and guilty.
God, we get it. And why are people still asking about this like some new revelation is going to come to light? Just make it stop. At least Brandi seems preoccupied at the moment with her one-time fling with Gerard Butler, even though he didn’t even remember her name.
