Brandi Glanville Slams LeAnn Rimes Over Laxatives, Poor Parenting, Psychosis

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”:

“He [Eddie] said, ‘We should be so lucky to have someone in our son’s lives that loves them.’ She loves them, but she’s endangering them. They may love her, but they don’t realize that, you know what, if he ate more than two laxatives — what if he ate the whole box — it’s just not OK. She’s not healthy. And until she’s healthy, I don’t want her around my children by herself. Eddie is a proper human being. He’s a good dad, he’s smart, he doesn’t have an eating disorder, he doesn’t have mental issues, he’s a normal person, and I want him to man up.”

And last, here’s the official statement from Rimes’ rep, which uses the word “spewing,” and I don’t think it was an accident—not after talking about laxatives for three or four paragraphs:

“Her whole show is based on controversy, drama and publicity. She is the only one to gain by spewing forth inaccuracies, rants and half-truths. It’s time for people to see it for what this really is…What better way to keep herself relevant? Why is all the name calling just coming from one side? Brandi keeps using threatening and mean-spirited statements like ‘I think she is a sociopath,’ ‘I don’t hate her I feel sorry for her but if she hurts my kids I will cut a b–ch or probably something worse,’ ‘I wanted to kill her,’ etc. and all LeAnn says is ‘my boys,’ ‘my family’ etc. Are LeAnn’s words threatening or mean-spirited? I beg to differ. LeAnn and Eddie have the boys 50 percent of the time, so they are a family and LeAnn is a great and caring co-parent. As Brandi stated ‘my boys love her’ and LeAnn loves them. Brandi keeps grasping at straws to make LeAnn seem like an unfit person. Brandi’s story changes daily, one day it’s an eating disorder, one day it’s Twitter, one day the boys aren’t safe, etc. She says she hasn’t seen or spoken to LeAnn in months but yet knows everything that is going on. None of Brandi’s allegations are true. People need to see it for what it is—PUBLICITY! It’s time for Brandi to move on. LeAnn has!”

Later, Eddie released his own personal statement to Radar Online, directly to Brandi Glanville (since, duh, he’s totally unreachable unless it’s through Twitter or another media outlet):

“It is absolutely ridiculous that my ex-wife continues to put the personal lives of myself, LeAnn, our sons and my family on public display for the sake of her notoriety. She is fully capable and has the means of contacting myself and LeAnn privately to discuss any matter concerning the children. The fact she chooses not to, should be pretty transparent. And while I do not wish to fuel her ever-igniting fire, there is a breaking point where enough is enough. My wife, LeAnn, continues to be a loving and positive influence on the lives of my sons. They are without a doubt lucky to have her. The love they have for their ‘bonus mom’ continues to grow each day as we navigate the changes to our family; a fact that Brandi cannot argue as she herself has stated as much. If my ex-wife truly cared about the welfare of our sons, she would stop the constant bashing on an important person in their lives and focus on productive co-parenting to make our blended family the strongest it can be. And she would do so privately. Let’s see. . .”

Ugh, guys. I don’t even know where to start. Laxatives? There’s even rumors going around that LeAnn’s hooked on Adderall and alcohol, and if you combine those two things with laxatives, you’re only headed one place (and I don’t mean a bathroom)—rehab. Real rehab, too, this time, not some namby-pamby retreat where you talk about butterflies and feelings and lavender-scented farts.

Last, and it’s probably the most important thing of all: what the hell is an “ever-igniting fire”? How, exactly, is something “ever-igniting”?

  • I guess if it was “ever-igniting,” it would mean it never actually caught fire. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have to keep igniting it. IDK, even if Brandi is completely unreasonable and is just trying to “keep relevant” (which I don’t believe is the case, but just for argument’s sake) Leann should know this. She should know that what she doing gets Brandi upset and going at her on Twitter and in interviews. This has been going on for some time. So if she doesn’t want Brandi to respond the way she is, Leann should stop putting things on Twitter that prompt those responses. I don’t see what would be the big deal about stopping that. Leann can love the boys and they can love her without her posting anything about it. So it makes me suspicious of Leann’s motives for posting those pictures and other things on Twitter. Most of all, though, this “story” has just become tiresome. I understand that within that family, these things are very important. But I don’t know any of these people (I don’t think I’d want to, honestly) and I’m really kind of sick of hearing about this childish squabbling back and forth within this circle of three supposed adults. I feel sorry for the children. I hope they have some grandparents or someone who can model true adult behavior for them.

  • Eddie seems like a real wiener. He needs to get over his emotional garbage and start taking control of the situation with his ex and current wife and his children.

    Leann doesn’t look too healthy….she doesn’t seem to emotionally steady….I hope Brandi is..

    I’d have no clue who any of these folks were if it weren’t for their dirty laundry. :)

  • If it weren’t for attention, whether the Brandi’s claims are true or not, then Brandi would be back in court and California’s CPS would be all up Leann and Eddie’s butts over these claims. I haven’t read anywhere where Brandi is headed back to court, hired an investigator to get hard evidence of endangerment or called children’s services. If you really believe your kids are in danger, you reach out for help…not Twitter. Bleh!

  • pufinstuf addresses “ever igniting” – ironic!!! I love your name, btw, pufinstuf. He was my childhood hero when I was 4. You’re so right about Leann’s posting….I suddenly feel great about being single.

  • It sounds to me like Brandi is completely and understandably frustrated at Eddie’s unwillingness to co-parent with her without dragging LeAnn into the mix all the time. Him being married to LeAnn should have nothing to do with how the children are being raised, they are after all, his and Brandi’s kids, not LeAnn’s.

    He shows Brandi great disrespect, as the mother of his children, by not being directly accessible to her if she needs to discuss any concerns she has regarding time spent with the stepmother. And it sounds like she is well justified in being concerned if these incidents are true. Eddie needs to get out from behind LeAnn’s skirts and take responsibility for those lives he helped bring into the world.

  • “Eddie” (Darrell Brown wrote the ROL email and the email from US Weekly was written by Leann) went through all that trouble telling Brandi to shut up and stop talking about Leann, yet what is Leann Rimes doing today? Rather than take the high road, Leann Rimes is back on twitter making even more passive aggressive digs at Brandi. The passive aggressiveness never stops with Leann, she keeps pushing and pushing.

    Leann tweeted a photo of her fireplace with stockings that had the boys names on it.

    Leann had one of her BFF’s(Madision H from one of those reality tv shows) make a threatening tweet telling Brandi to shut up!

    Leann tweeted about her song “Borrowed”, which is about her affair with Eddie. “Eddie” tells Brandi to move on, meanwhile his wife is bragging that her song is in the top 5 downloads. Where is Leann getting these charts from because when you look at the regular charts like Billboard, her songs are not there or are not ranked as well as she claims. It’s like she has some special charts made up.

    Leann had PH write yet another biased article depicting herself as the victim.

    Leann Rimes is rentless with the attacks. It’s going to get even worse once her interview with ENews and Guiliana airs!

    Can someone please explain, if “Eddie” was so concerned about keeping his personal life private like he wrote in those emails, then why is Leann even tweeting today? Either Eddie is really dumb or he allows Leann to tweet because he is out with his mistress.

  • Brandi got mad because LeAnn once again posted a picture of her sons (and Eddie) referring to them as “my boys”. Brandi understandably flips out whenever LeAnn takes ownership of the boys.But she is wrong to speak out in the way she did. It’s not LeAnn’s fault that Eddie reinforces the passive-aggression towards his ex.

  • Everyone was wondering why Eddie reinforces Leann’s passive-aggression towards Brandi. Eddie really is a man driven by MONEY and Leann’s gifts! Thanks to Leann, now we know why Eddie allowed Leann and Darrell Brown to make those emails from his account, did the ENews interview with Leann, allowed Leann to exploit those kids last weekend, and didn’t do anything when Leann made even more passive aggressive tweets towards Brandi today:

    This is the latest tweet from Leann Rimes: “Is anyone else like me and can’t wait to give a very special gift? I gave @eddiecibrian on of his Xmas gifts today. #canthelpit”

    Well at least Eddie is milking Leann for all that she worth. Isn’t anyone at all surprised that he sold out his kids and his ex-wife for a new toy that Leann bought him?

    • They are both Very Much In Love, and his Boys LOVE Her, as do His Parents. She is a VERY BEAUTIFUL CARING PERSON. Leave Her Alone !!!

  • I think emailing and calling constitutes trying to get in touch with them privately! I can’t stand Leean and Eddie is douche bag!! Team Brandi!!

  • Yesterday Leann tweeted a photo showing that her song “Borrowed” was in the top 5 for downloads. I questioned where she got this list because “Borrowed” wasn’t ranked in the top 5(or top 40 for that matter) on the regular lists like Billboard and of course how could this song be getting downloads when she hasn’t even released it to itunes yet. Someone said that the list that Leann tweeted belongs to a system used by artists to send radio stations their music. The song isn’t beind downloaded by fans like Leann was trying to convey, but by Leann and her pr people who are trying to introduce her music to radio stations. So if she has been downloading “Borrowed” like crazy so that she can get these radio stations to listen to it and play, it’s going to be in the top 5 downloads.

  • OMFG !!! … have’nt You LeAnn Haters Got Anything BETTER To Do ?!!?!? ….. GET A LIFE !!! . . . . . Leave Her Alone !!! ….. Her Private Life is None of Your GODDAMN BUSINESS !!! ….. As far as The Download Situation, you may not be aware of it, But iTunes )for example) IS NOT The Only Means of Downloading Music. For Your Information, LeAnn has a Website with a Paid membership Subscription, and it has a Section that is For Members Only to Download Music: So maybe THAT is what she was referring to. Get Your FACTS Right Before Condemning Her!!!
