So Brandi Glanville, who’s ripping mad about recent Twitter interactions involving LeAnn Rimes and her allegedly sub-par parenting skills has gone and given an exclusive interview to Us Magazine, wherein she discusses LeAnn’s drinking problem and also, her problem with laxatives. Here’s the highlights from the interview, and LeAnn and Eddie’s subsequent statement refuting all of Brandi’s claims that LeAnn is nutty as squirrel shit.
“There’s a lot more that’s going on recently since LeAnn went into rehab, or wherever it is she went. A lot more than people know. I don’t have communication with [Cibrian and Rimes] because I don’t get responses when I reach out. I only get responses when I put it on Twitter. Twitter seems to work. That is the life they chose. Something happened with my son that nobody knows about . . . I know that my kids love her, and I know that she’s upset. I, unfortunately, don’t find her to be stable and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there — or at least the nanny, his parents, someone. Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le’s candies and got extremely ill. And Le’s candies are laxatives. It was a big f-cking deal for me, and I lost my mind. Mason told me about it, and then Eddie’s assistant, who was working for me at the time, also told me about it out of concern for my children. I emailed, emailed, called, called — no answers. Couldn’t even discuss it. He refuses to even be in the same room as me. He can’t have a parent-teacher conference if I’m there. I don’t know how to do this when I can’t talk to the father of my children and his new wife. I don’t know what to do.”
Brandi continues by discussing the biking accident, which references her son riding his bicycle outside of LeAnn and Eddie’s home (where a drunk driver crashed through a fence last year) without a helmet, and continues by saying how unreachable LeAnn and Eddie are—even when it involves the former couple’s children:
“I can’t get through to either one of them. They won’t answer. And then after all the Twitter stuff, I get this long-winded email from Eddie — finally, after months — saying I need to stop talking about his wife to make myself relevant. Nothing to do with the children. Nothing to do with answering the questions I have. I see this ending badly. I see someone getting hurt, and, if it’s my children, I will lose my mind. I said to my friend yesterday, ‘I don’t feel like she’s stable.’ God forbid anything ever happened between her and Eddie. She uses my children as a tool to get to me, and I don’t know if she cares about them the way that Eddie thinks she does. She cries that she didn’t have a childhood, but you know, I’m sorry that you were a child star. You got rich and famous at a young age. I’m sorry you didn’t have a childhood, but you’re acting like a child now. And I can’t have a child raising my children.”
Later, she had this to say about Eddie and his parenting skills and how she needs him to “man up”:
