Radar: LeAnn Rimes “copies everything that Brandi does” – sounds about right

Radar/Star Magazine has a report that will shock you to your very core: LeAnn Rimes is Single White Female-ing Brandi Glanville. OMG THAT IS COMPLETELY NEW INFORMATION. Jeez, how long ago did I say that? I feel like I pointed that out like three years ago, before LeAnn even went to Brandi’s plastic surgeon to get her bolt-ons. The Single White Female stench has been wafting around LeAnn for a long, long time, but Radar still wants to talk about it. So why not?

Since hooking up with Eddie Cibrian more than three years ago, LeAnn Rimes has been at constant odds with the actor’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, and an insider tells Star magazine the long-running feud has worn the singer down to the point that she’s hanging on Brandi’s every word, and emulating her in any way possible.

“It’s out of control, the way LeAnn stalks Brandi,” an insider tells Star. “Even LeAnn’s friends think it’s weird, but she can’t seem to help herself. If Brandi tweets a picture of herself in a bikini, LeAnn does the same thing. If Brandi talks about becoming a dermatologist, LeAnn suddenly starts talking about it on Twitter…it’s really strange!”

Brandi, 40, has picked up on the Single White Female vibes from LeAnn — and blasted the 30-year-old singer for her copycat ways.

“Someone is obviously stalking my facebook & copies my every move, even my bikini pics!!” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills beauty tweeted last year after LeAnn kept putting up suspiciously similar pics to the ones she was posting. “Creepy! I said it once I will say it again STALKER!!”

Brandi’s longtime confidante Jennifer Gimenez tells Star she believes LeAnn’s severe lack of self-esteem is the root cause of her unusual behavior.

“She copies everything that Brandi does,” Jennifer says. “She even exchanged her black Range Rover for a white one because that’s what Brandi drives! If Brandi gets a new bag or shoes, within a week you will see LeAnn with the exact same thing.”

The issues run so deep, insiders say, that LeAnn even seeks out the same professionals Brandi employs to keep up with her longtime love rival.

“LeAnn used Brandi’s boob doctor, Garth Fisher; her dentist, Dr. Duane McKay; her hairstylist, Kim Vo; her dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer; and the same Botox guy at Dr. Applebaum’s!” the insider says. “It is disturbing — she finds out who Brandi uses, then goes out of her way to book an appointment with them herself.”

One source says the obsession is tied to LeAnn’s insecurity in her marriage to Eddie, a Hollywood hunk with a history of cheating.

“Ever since LeAnn got Eddie, all she can think about is how to keep him, and it’s making her act like a lunatic,” the source tells Star. “She has it in her head that if she looks and acts just like Brandi, Eddie won’t ever leave her. Which obviously makes no sense, because Eddie cheated on Brandi with LeAnn!”

I hadn’t heard about the dermatologist or the hair stylist before. And I didn’t realize that LeAnn was STILL copying the little things Brandi did too – is LeAnn seriously still copying Brandi’s every shoe and clothing purchase? Good God. And it’s not like Brandi is Coco Chanel or anything – I’m just saying, it’s not like Brandi’s taste in clothes, cars, doctors and men is so great. Brandi wears some cute outfits sometimes, but if I’m going to copy someone… I don’t know, I guess I would take the time to find a better role model? Is that how to describe this? Does LeAnn see Brandi as some kind of twisted role model? Or is it LeAnn’s way of psychologically annihilating Brandi – by completely absorbing Brandi’s personality, her style, her everything? So creepy.

    does Eddie have some kind of magic prick?

  2. brin says:

    She is a psycho stalker. But wtf was she high on last night on the XFactor? She was a mess!!

    • Prinny says:

      That performance totally cemented my dislike for LR. I’ve been rooting for Carly all season and LR could care less what she did to that girl last night. Once again she has to make something all about her. “Me me me me me”

    • eileen says:

      What the hell was that?
      What kind of GRown ass human being tries to take the dreams of a 13 yr old girl who has amazing talent and spend the song trying to outsing her and warble around like everyone is there to see HER? Oh and clearly wasted on something.
      She will throw out the same LAME ass excuse that she was sick with a cold or it was meds from her MOUTH-but even being wasted on something doesn’t excuse her clearly trying to push that girl to the back and make it ALL about her. She is a disgusting person.
      This is coming from a place where I’m not letting her other nasty and evil actions affect me-but you can see how self-centered she is right there. And a wasted HOT MESS.

  3. Barrett says:

    Why does a 30 year old even need Botox? Nothing on your face moves enough at that age. Hello Heidi Montag?

  4. Amelia says:

    “LeAnn used Brandi’s boob doctor, Garth Fisher…”
    There’s something about that sentence that really makes me laugh. I would have thought plastic surgeon would suffice!
    God, I really need to sit down and actually watch Single White Female. I feel like I can’t call myself a movie fan otherwise and some of these references are going right over my head.

  5. RN says:

    Kaiser, have you seen the video of LeAnn trying to outsing a teen on “X Factor”? From the few seconds I could bear to watch (it really is painful!), I noticed immediately that her hair looks exactly like Brandi’s. Even I could see that, and I only know about these two from this website and the Daily Mail.

  6. Cinnamon says:

    i didnt want to believe this until i saw a collage of it online. its literally like days/a week later leann will be photographed with the EXACT same item of clothing. but i mean clothes are whatever….the fact she goes to the same professionals is creppier to me. total SWF in action. Brandi, you in trouble girl!

  7. Theskinny says:

    I think she takes that “Walk a mile in her shoes” adage, a little too seriously. On another note…her performance on X factor last night? W…T…F???

  8. Kaye says:

    Why would she want to become the woman Eddie left? Maybe the irony will sink in when he leaves LeAnn.

  9. MoxyLady007 says:

    Eddie didn’t want a divorce. He begged Brandi not to leave him after his cheating came to light. He would still be with Brandi if Leann hasn’t manipulated the situation the way she did. And Leann knows that. She wasn’t his first choice – hell she wasn’t ever his choice. She got him by default – Brandi ended things and Eddie lashed out at her by gettung back with Leann.
    That’s why Leann copies Brandi. She knows Eddie wanted her and still wants her. The whole thing is so f-ibg sad/creepy/insane.
    I don’t know how Brandi deals with it.

  10. Samigirl says:

    Haha! I’m happy she’s getting called out on it. Regardless of how you feel about these women, it’s painfully obvious that LR copies BG. And, it’s pathetic.

  11. Kate says:

    I never thought LeAnn was ugly (pathetic, yes, a touch homely sometimes, but never ugly), however the 2nd picture (the one with the Extra mic) makes her look like Jocelyn Wildenstein. Maybe it’s bloat from the laxatives. Whatever, it’s bad.

  12. Talie says:

    Radar seems to be the go-to for the RHOBH cast members…I mean, c’mon, this story comes out the day after LeAnn disses Brandi on Leno. A little too easy. Brandi even namechecked Radar on the show.

  13. Ellie66 says:

    Well we all know Eddie won’t leave Leeann (unless she runs out of money) his career is in the toilet so he will put up with the crazy lady for a long time or until someone richer comes along.

  14. fabgrrl says:

    As someone said once before, I think Leann is, possibly, in love with Brandi. She can’t, or won’t, acknowledge her true feelings, so in order to “possess” Brandi, she is going to “become” Brandi. Brandi’s husband, Brandi’s children, Brandi’s friends, Brandi’s clothes, Brandi’s doctors, Brandi’s bolt-ons, etc.

  15. Lucky says:

    Does she look a bit like a pit bull or boxer?? She is resembling something very specific to me in those pics but I can’t put my finger on it…

  16. Hoya_chick says:

    So strange, this marriage will be the end of her. I never heard any gossip about her before he came into her life. Why would you go out of your way to copy and look like your husband’s ex? He left her for you remember? That’s why I think she is so insecure and clingy. If he really loved her she wouldn’t feel the need to change everything about herself to be with him. Such an unhealthy situation.

  17. Chell says:

    They just announced that they will start filming a “Real Housewives of Nashville”…I know LeAnn doesn’t live in Nashville, but how fast do you think she will be house hunting there? Couldn’t you just see the country c–t trying to weasel her way into being on a RH show just like Brandi?!?! That would seriously be the icing on the cake!

  18. zelda says:

    That is a “boob doctor” I would have avoided. :/

  19. truthful says:

    I’ve seen the photos of her wearing EXACTLY the same thing as Brandi has worn..she is crazy.

    I think she knows that Eddie wishes he had not left Brandi–LeAnne’s crazy is just too overwhelming.

    LeAnne knows the old adage:
    you lose em, how you get em.

    She knows, her karma is coming and she is about to crack up at the thought of “LOSING” and everyone laughing at her.

    I think Eddie will leave her, I think he will go with his next bidder/hotpiece…in due time, in due time.

    How much $$ can he get if he stays married to her for 5 yrs???

    something tells me, he did not have to sign a prenup.

  20. Rita says:

    ……and that’s not all. Gisele Bundchen copies Brandi so much it’s gotten to the point where I can’t tell them apart when they wear their aviator sunglasses. They could be twins.

    In fact, Gisele showed up on the set of RHOBH and Andy Bravo didn’t realize Brandi was tied up in the closet until half way through the shoot (Would have liked to watch that wrestling match).

    Gisele is a STALKER!!!

  21. ms.steel says:

    2nd pic looks like Falcor as one commenter said in previous article.
    the 3rd pic is just priceless…

    have you watched x-factor with her duet with Carly? poor Girl, LR tried too hard to compete with little girl and the hair moment was hilarious.

  22. Sugar says:

    I figured it this way…after she (L) leaked the affair & B kicked E to the curb he had no place to go but to L. E (pissed off) let her know she will never be 1/2 the woman B is & that began L’s SWFing decent into creepy
    stalking of B.
    it’s sad because I thought E & L had such a connection that went beyond physicality & THAT is the fate they fought to be together.

  23. Lady D says:

    Falcor’s crazy is leaking into mainstream gossip. Soon everyone will know how psycho she is, not just the country music crowd. The fact that Grimes stalked her to the point that she uses the same medical professionals leaves me kind of speechless. Scary stuff.

  24. Macey says:

    I cant wait to see how bat sh*t crazy LR gets when Brandi and Sheana get together on Lisa’s show. should be epic. I wonder if LR will start copying Sheana’s style too. Rumor has it that Ediot never really gave up his thing with Sheana, he’s just been more sneaky and cautious about it.

  25. Cathy says:

    I don’t get why someone would want to look like their partners ex? They dumped them for a reason right, so why would they want to be reminded of what the ex looked like/dressed like?

  26. Memphis says:

    I swear she’s just one step away from pulling a “Silence Of The Lambs” and wearing Brandi as a skin suit…. It rubs the lotion on its skin …

  27. Sway says:

    Leann copying Brandi. You don’t say.
    Seriously. I used to not believe MeAnn copied her husband’s ex wife. Until yesterday when out of boredom I browsed a little both those lovely ladies’ twitters. And so I saw this.
    On the 19th of December Brandi tweeted this:

    “Me and D @darinharvey taking the kids for sushi! This should be fun!”

    And AN HOUR LATER, Leann tweeted this:

    “Out at sushi with my hubby and my friend’s to celebrate so many things, professionally and personally!!!”

    And there you go. I was convinced. I mean, it is RIGHT THERE.

    It’s like she constantly watches Brandi’s feed and instantly does (or just says she does) the same thing or activity Brandi does. In this instance, when Brandi tweets she is going out for sushi with her sons, Leann is quick to say that “Well neener, neener, I’m going for sushi too – and with your ex husband whom I stole – sorry, BORROWED – from you. Who’s cooler now, BITCH”.

    Oh, Leann.

    • akua says:

      Seems like it would be exhausting to keep up with all that! (On Leann’s part, especially if she’s not eating much)

    • eileen says:

      The part about Leann on twitter that blows my mind more is how many people Leann blocks. She literally trolls Brandis timeline and blocks EVERYONE who is a Brandi fan. They don’t even care about LEann, just like Brandi from RH. Then one day they try to read Leann’s tweets and they can’t because Leann blocked them! She has blocked literally thousands I can bet! Who does that? Pair the time she spends tweeting and stalking Brandi when does she have time for anything else??

  28. skuddles says:

    Classic case of donkey see… donkey do.

  29. Brit says:

    This sounds like the plot of a lifetime movie featuring tori spelling

  30. erika says:

    so much accomplishment to be proud of in life…

    i copied another chicks persona ..

    woooo wooooo go leanne!

  31. K-rock says:

    HeAnn is frighteningly obsessed with Brandi. If I were Brandi I’d be scared for my life. Normal women don’t behave that way. Just sayin’.

  32. apsutter says:

    If I were Brandi I would start doing weird stuff just to experiment and see how far Leann will go to copy her. Like start wearing wigs or changing my hair color and wearing weird stuff.

  33. tammy says:

    Now I know why Brandi is concerned about her kids being around Leann. If someone stalked/taunted/copied you for years, would you trust them to care for your kids? Leann tweeted Brandi’s boss, texted Lisa V., and had her picture taken with Taylor A.from rhobh show. Scary!

  34. Sway says:

    Fresh from Brandi and Leann’s twitters.

    First, Brandi tweeted this:

    “Did “This is 40″ open in the movies yet? I need to see it!”

    And today, Leann followed with:

    “”So This Is 40″ is awesome! Must see”

    Oh man, it’s like a twitter reality show. Brandi, pleeeease, let’s see what she’ll do next! Like, say you’re using donkey faeces for a facial and it’s TOTALLY paying off. Please, for us!

  35. Mrs. Odie says:

    When the tabloids reported Eddie was cheating, he denied it and he and Brandi made a brief public show of togetherness. He and LeAnn had been sleeping together, and he undoubtedly had told her his intimate relationship with Brandi had been over forever. Then, he lied to the press and dove headfirst into Brandi’s boobs for the cameras. LeAnn will never get over Eddie cheating onHER with Brandi.
