Was LeAnn Rimes crying after Brandi publicly told her to ‘go f–k herself’?

There are some new LeAnn Rimes photos floating around, but we don’t have access to them – you can see them here. LeAnn was photographed looking weepy and sad in LA yesterday. I think she was with her friend “Lizzie” and Lizzie gave her a hug at some point. Every outlet with access to the photos has used them to “tell the story of why LeAnn is crying” and some of the stories are kind of funny/mean. My favorite version is The Mail’s – they claim LeAnn is probably crying because Brandi Glanville told her to “go f—k herself”. LOL.

She recently admitted that she ‘hates Mondays’ because she has to meet with her publicist and discuss any updates regarding her on-going feud with her husband’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville. This might explain why LeAnn Rimes was seen being comforted by a female friend as she left a restaurant visibly crying on Monday.

Her tearful appearance came as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi said ‘She can go f**k herself’ during a Q&A session.

Dressed down in a large grey cardigan the usually glamorous looking LeAnn looked dishevelled as she left Hugo’s restaurant in LA with her friend. Despite having her eyes covered by sunglasses it was obvious the 30-year-old was distressed as she was hugged by her friend.

Meanwhile, as LeAnn cried into her lunch, Brandi, who used to be married to LeAnn’s now husband Eddie Cibrian, appeared at a Q&A session during a book signing for her book Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders.

When questioned about her ex’s new wife she said: ‘She can go f**k herself!’

Before adding: ‘Well, she has to, because who want to?’

She then went on to say that ‘then I go home and think about them. I have a conscience. I definitely feel bad about certain things and when I’m wrong I say sorry.’

But she says that if someone has a go at her ‘I go 10 times harder, especially when it comes to my family and my children— bitch, it’s on!’

Speaking about her marriage, she said: ‘I did everything right, I loved so hard. I loved my children and my family was perfect. I did everything I could do for him and the boys and to make him not want to stray. So, when it happened, especially with someone as attractive as her…’

After trailing off at LeAnn’s expense she admitted she’s not expecting a good response to her book from the couple.

‘I’m expecting a cease-and-desist’ but ‘after this happens, after the book is out, I promise I’m closing this chapter of my life.’

The promise will come as a welcome bit of news to LeAnn who openly admits that she struggles with the whole Brandi drama.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last week she the singer said: ‘There comes a time when you’re just like, ‘Screw you!’’

After admitting that she hates Mondays because she has to check in with her publicist and find out the latest about Brandi, she said: ‘I think it’s kind of interesting how it seems one-sided most of the time — but then, you know, you just kinda get fed up with people lying about you.’

[From The Mail]

“I did everything I could do for him and the boys and to make him not want to stray. So, when it happened, especially with someone as attractive as her…” OMG. That is way harsher than the “LeAnn can go f—k herself” quote. That is the quote that is going to haunt the living daylights out of LeAnn. For a brief moment, I actually felt a pang of sympathy for LeAnn! But I also have to give Brandi a slow-clap for knowing exactly how to strike in the bitchiest way possible.

E! News has more about Brandi’s talk here – Brandi also said, “When a man cheats on you it’s not about you. It’s about notoriety. They want to be with you but they want their cake and eat it too.” I believe that. When Eddie screwed around on Brandi with LeAnn, he wasn’t thinking “I want to leave my wife for this woman” – he was just screwing around because he thought he could get away with it. And then LeAnn started stalking him and he couldn’t get away and he couldn’t get away with it anymore. Brandi also said she hopes that Eddie and LeAnn make it work because “I don’t want my kids to go through a divorce again.” Yikes. That would be chaos!

UPDATE: LeAnn responded via Twitter, of course. She says she wasn’t crying at the lunch.

    The Mail’s headline is hilarious. Yes, she’s crying because of something that didn’t happen until hours later. wtf.

  2. brin says:

    Bwahahaha…sucks to be Leann. She got a double whammy of the book party and RHOBH airing. Monday has to be the worst day for wewe! Team Brandi!!!

  3. Snarky says:

    She probably just found about about Eddie’s latest sidepiece.

  4. Raven Sparrow says:

    “Brandi also said she hopes that Eddie and LeAnn make it work because “I don’t want my kids to go through a divorce again.” ”

    I really don’t know these people, I live in France, but if she means what she said above then maybe she should try to calm things down between her & LeAnn. Not much of an example she’s giving her kids and she’s their mom.

  5. mln76 says:

    Do people honestly think Eddie only cheated on Brandi with two women?
    I doubt the man went a full month of being faithful to Brandi and I bet its the same with LeeAnn.
    I really won’t enjoy watching thr mental collapse of LeeAnn because its going to take forever. Oh and Brandi won’t ever stop harping on LeeAnn because as soon as people forget that she’s a victim they will start noticing what a raging narcissist she is.

    • karma kandi says:

      I’m sure he cheated for years but always came home to brandi. Leann exposing the affair and scheana emerging led brandi to kick him out of the marital home (see eddies divorce papers on eonline) leann is the narcissist here. Who sets up a photo op with her only friend on rhobh day to play victim? Leann. Mondays are bad for leann its when she’s at her most entertaining

      • mln76 says:

        Uhm thats your idea of a perfect marraige a man that f-ks around like frat boy but is nice enough to let you cook him dinner and bring home an STD?
        LeeAnn is probably a borderline personality with narcissistic tendencies but whatever LeeAnn is that doesn’t preclude Brandi being a narcissist herself.

      • karmasabiatch! says:

        min76- that’s precisely the DSM I would ascribe to MeAnn. The problem with borderline personality/ narcissistic personality is that counseling and/or medication does very little to treat those disorders. Treating people with that DSM is every therapist’s nightmare.
        Eddie will eventually leave, and has almost certainly begun cheating. With MeAnn’s disorder, I can guarantee she’s impossible to live with. The absolute minute Eddie finally escapes, her decompensation will accelerate. God help the Twitter universe and anyone around her when it happens. Wish she would just check herself into lockdown and Go. Away. For her sake and all of ours.

      • eileen says:

        Here’s some quotes from Brandi’s book:

        “I’m not entirely sure how I ended up on the floor of my closet sobbing…a teary-eyed Eddie found me lying there minutes later, and without saying so much as a word, he started kissing me all over…he pulled off my workout pants and we started having sex right there,” she recalls. “He swore up and down my body that it wasn’t true…that it was completely innocent. In that moment, it was easier to believe him, because I just couldn’t stand the thought of being without him.”

        Seriously-how do you JUDGE someone going through something like that? So she didn’t do whatever you would have-so that makes it wrong or the end of her marriage any less painful? She’s saying she was the best she could be for him and trusted him-sometimes we trust and have so much love for someone we are blinded when right in the middle of something like that. I’ve seen a friend with someone who was blatantly cheating and she didn’t want to see it until it literally was right in her face. I didn’t deal with cheating-but had a VERY controlling husband and just kept trucking along making it work-until I just couldn’t anymore. All my friends and even strangers saw it-but I wouldn’t.
        No one can comment on something until they’ve BEEN there. Why can’t women stand together instead of tearing down the hurt party? I will never understand this.

      • Emily says:

        If I were married to a man who cheated on me, I’d hope he cheated with a woman who exposed him! Wow, you are taking blaming the “other woman” to an extreme I’ve rarely seen before. Eddie broke up his “marital home” — Eddie, all Eddie, only Eddie, because Eddie is the one who broke his vows. Repeatedly.

    • pandora says:

      Like any accomplished stalker, I’m quite sure she has some hollywood gumshoe tailing that guy everytime he leaves the house, if he starts screwing around, she’ll know about it approximately 30 seconds before TMZ…

  6. nomorerimes says:

    Come on–she is not crying! In one pic on DM she is looking right at the pap! It’s all staged trying to earn some sympathy since most everyone has been bashing her lately. She is a slick manipulator and everything in those pics points to staged! Notice how the phone case is placed so that the pics of the boys are shown! Her hair looks a mess as if to say she is soooo upset.
    I’m not falling for it!

  7. Laura says:

    Brandi really grates on me.

    I personally think she is just as bad as Leann, famewhoring herself and her children and manipulating the whole cheating scandal so she can get maximum publicity.

    I wish both of them would just shut their mouths!

  8. Toot says:

    I hope LeAnn dumps Eddie and moves on. Brandi doesn’t care about her kids going thru another divorce, she’s probably hoping for it.

    Yeah, LeAnn is annoying, but she treats your kids well and they like her, so shut up. They could have a real asshole of a step mother.

    Brandi pissed me off because I’m feeling bad for what she said about LeAnn’s appearance.

    • Cam S says:

      @Toot: What did Brandi say negative about Leann’s appearance? The quote said she called her “attractive”. Also, wth would you say about the woman your husband cheated with? I don’t care if the woman cured cancer, if she was riding MY husband, you dang well better bet I’d be taking digs at her looks!

      • Toot says:

        I understand all that,but this public shit talking isn’t good for Brandi’s sons. Yes, she hates LeAnn, but I don’t see how the bitterness is good for the boys.

      • Ok says:

        Cam S — when she said attractive she was being sarcastic. Brandi was saying that Eddie cheated with someone who looks like her……as in implying Leann is not attractive

      • LAK says:

        I agree with Cam S ;) with regards to Brandi’s comment on LeAnn’s looks.

        Ladies – nuance!!!! It kills Cam S’joke comment if you don’t understand that it is a joke. A continued play on words, just like Brandi.

        As for the rest, I am sure you wowuldn’t be so calm and cool in the face of the extreme provocation Brandi has had to endure for a long time. Well, she’s finally hitting back.

        If she sticks to her promise to be quiet after the book comes out, then am all for her speaking now.

        I don’t know if you have’t realised, but Brandi is currently on a book tour. She’s going to be on the mediawaves until (and some weeks after) book comes out. Unfortunately for all of us, LeAnn is strying to match her interview for interview. Instead of concentrating on her own release in 3mths time, she’s out there giving Brandi free publicity, doing her book tour with her!!!!!

        I really hope Brandi doesn’t reciprocate when the album finally comes out, despite the painful subject inspiration.

    • Hakura says:

      @Toot – I’m afraid I gotta go with Cam S., on this one.

    • Alana Fajina says:

      It sounds like someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. @Toot- you’re way too invested in this story, you shouldn’t be pissed off at any of these people. Their lives don’t affect you, and to say you think the boys’ Actual, Biological mother doesn’t care about them going through another painful divorce says a lot about how you think.
      These women are Adults, and Leann being partly responsible for breaking up a family, shouldn’t expect the ex-wife to have anything nice to say when it comes to the likes of her. Leann has said and done A LOT of nasty things in the media since snagging Brandi’s scraps, I’m sure the boys won’t have as hard a time forgiving their mother if that in fact ever comes up.
      You’re reaching.

    • emmie_a says:

      Toot: How blind you are. LeAnn USES the kids for photo-ops and she will say/do anything about the kids to piss Brandi off. The boys are nothing more than pawns in LeAnn’s sick game. LeAnn only thinks about herself and one-upping Brandi, she does not think about what is beat for the boys.

  9. Faye says:

    I think there is never a good excuse for cheating, and so have no sympathy for Leanne. But I find Brandi equally gross in her own way. This constant drama in the media she continues . . .is that really what’s best for her kids? These people ALL squick me out.

  10. Blondie says:

    I’m thinking she probably got some bad news about either her “career” or Eddie. When Brandi insults her, she usually insults right back, or Leeann usually starts it. Maybe the truth about how much the public despises her for wrecking Brandi’s family is starting to hit home with her. She is nowhere near the “star” she used to be. Enjoy playing casinos and state fairs. Leeann, it’s only gonna get worse, karma is catching up with you.

  11. Jayna says:

    Brandi just came across downright tacky and classless in some of those remarks. Not impressed.

    Her perfect life was in her dreams. Her husband was f’ing lots of women. Brandi’s ad nauseum loud, vulger mouth might have made him want to stray, but then he shouldn’t have had kids. He wanted a family with her. Usually girlfriends on the side aren’t part of the deal. I guess he didn’t read that clause in the marriage contract. Better she finds out at 37 than 50 with no career.

    LeAnn crying in public and JUST HAPPENED to be papped? Aw, how unlucky for LeAnn caught at that exact moment. LOL She’s quiet on twitter. Bets on how long that will last. Two days?

    These two women just sound tiresome on twitter and everywhere else in the media going on four years later, and there is Eddie, still quiet as a church mouse.

    • Hakura says:

      @Jayna – Wow. I hadn’t realized it’d been that long. While I still think Brandi had every right to not want to ‘forgive & forget’, she’s the mother of 2 young children who are caught in the middle.

      I hope she means it when she said she’s closing this chapter in her life. Fun though it may be for us to read the bitch-fest back & forth, it’s time to move on for her kid’s sakes.

    • Ok says:

      Jayna — I have to agree with you about Brandi and her perfect marriage. In what reality was she in a good marriage?

      • LAK says:

        In HER world. Have you never had friends in relationships with complete shits but who are convinced they are angels and it’s the world that doesn’t get it?

        The world isn’t full of utopian happy marriages where partners understand or know each other perfectly. There is a huge element of delusion AKA compromise required to make it work.

        These situations require a shock confrontation with the truth to break them eg Brandi was happy to forgive and forget all about LeAnn as a possible abberation, but then was confronted with the other mistresses and KICKED HIM OUT when confronted by this truth about her marriage. Many women wilfully ignore even that much evidence eg VB maintains that her marriage is and has always been perfect when there is evidence that David cheated on her.

      • Asiyah says:

        She said on RHOBH that she THOUGHT she had a perfect marriage, but realized it wasn’t true. She had her suspicions of his affairs but never went through his things or anything like that because she was afraid of what she would find out. She told Lisa this. No worse blind person than s/he who refuses to see the truth.

    • Emily says:

      Brandi’s making a career off this. And Leann is married to a boring douche, and is not intelligent enough herself to think of something better to do with her time. (Like kick him to the curb and date as many men as she feels like.) Frankly, Brandi got the better part of this deal by far.

  12. Jenna says:

    LOL. Sorry, was I not supposed to laugh? Because I did. And I’m not even sorry. :P

  13. Camille says:

    You go girl! Brandi knows how to push LeAnn’s buttons.

  14. sunnyinseattle says:

    It looks like she isn’t wearing her ring in the picts. Does she EVER go without it anywhere?

    • pamspam says:

      I noticed that as well. In one picture, it looks like it might be on, but twisted backwards? Hard to tell. Ugh…she’s exhausting.

    • Rita says:

      I too noticed the lack of a ring and that is very interesting considering she was at lunch and not on the beach where she constantly flashes it, but then again, she’ll still be wearing that ring long after she’s killed Eddie and which ever side piece she catches him with.

      • sunnyinseattle says:

        HA. I would love to see her dump him when she catches him, but we all know she won’t. She is way too needy and will just say everyone is lying because they are so jealous of their love. She won’t leave him, he will leave her and take A LOT of her money with him , which is so obvious to everyone but her. I would feel bad if she wasn’t so dumb. ;-)

  15. Lolly says:

    This Brandi woman is a real piece of work. Does she know her kids will one day read these comments of hers? I like how she designates herself the morality police when she’s the one running around having one night stands

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      How has she designated herself the morality police? Please tell me. I am curious.

    • Alana Fajina says:

      @Lolly- the Same way Brandi’s boys will read about the things their mother has said in the media after being left heartbroken is the very SAME way they will read AND See the things their father and “Bonus Mom” have done as well.
      No competition.
      Not exactly saying every move Brandi makes is right, it’s just that their father and Leann have taken some pretty nasty digs at Brandi through the media. I view Brandi’s comments as reactions.
      It’s all very exhausting.

  16. aims says:

    I love that Brandi is not the type of girl that rolls over and takes it. It’s like, ok you want to take my husband and interject yourself in my kids lives, I’ll talk shit about you to anyone who will listen. Brandi doesn’t want him Eddie back, but she has no problem telling Leann to go f herself. For that I admire her. Leanns record won’t do well, Eddies career has tanked. They are both has beens. Brandi’s the winner. She has a show and a book, the public likes her and she got rid of a crappy husband. Sadly she has to deal with a crazy ass second wife.

  17. Relli says:

    Whoa Brandi, thats way harsh Tai. I really hope this is the end for her discussing them in public, let HeMan take the this crazy train right of the tracks and deal. She should chill out, enjoy the noteriety and bag herself someone crazy rich, she deserves a chance to write herself a better (and happier) ending!

  18. JenD says:

    The bottom picture with the leather jacket…it’s hard to tell if that’s Brandi or Leann. Weird that they can look so much alike at times.

  19. Rhonda says:

    She’s not crying, and TYPO ALERT

  20. Skins says:

    Not a fan of Leann’s by any means, but at least she has some kind of talent and a career to think about. This other chick is just a no-talent famewhore doing everything she can to keep this crap in the news because that is her career.

  21. Cam S says:

    This is freaking awesome! I’m glad the 1st wife isn’t taking this laying down anymore. LeAnn and her cronies thought it was great to harrass this poor woman relentlessly when she was lesser known. Leann doesn’t know how to react when someone doesn’t roll over and take her crap now that Brandi has a platform to tell the real TRUTH. Maybe striking back is the wake up call LeAnn needs?

  22. Ailine says:

    Love Brandi. Leann deserves harassment for being an insecure idiot although Eddie deserves it more.

  23. judyjudy says:

    I’ve enjoyed following this drama for years but Brandi is quickly becoming extremely unappealing and nasty. Her comments are tacky and b*tchy and make me start to think no wonder Eddie left. I don’t want to think that but the more Brandi talks and stirs cap with Leann the less I feel sorry for her. That comment about how Leann should eff herself because who else would? Ummmmmm…..
    Leann is crazy but Brandi is nasty and mean.

  24. hoya_chick says:

    This whole post made me LOL. She is only saying what most people have been saying in the comments for years! Don’t feel bad for Leann, she is getting what she deserves. It’s about time. I think Brandi is saying these things to drum up interest in her book. If Leann can write an entire album about her affair then Brandi’s book is fair play. All of the people judging Brandi, how would you feel if your home and family was destroyed by an affair and then the new wife’s constant harassment and taunts? The public wasn’t aware of the the terrible things Leann was doing to Brandi in the aftermath of the affair because Brandi wasn’t well known. Now she is getting a taste of her own medicine. Sucks to be on the receiving end doesn’t it Le?

    • judyjudy says:

      I kind of see it as ‘two wrongs don’t make a right’. Sure, Leann was in the wrong and now that Brandi has a platform she’s giving it back to her…all that shows is that Brandi is no better.

      • eileen says:

        Brandi speaking about all this can’t even come close to comparing what Leann has done to her for years. We are talking STALKING, HARASSMENT and flat out putting her kids in danger on numerous times….and no I’m not talking about the laxitive…there’s more that wasn’t even talked about.
        Paying people to harass Brandi and yes, stalking her even AFTER Eddie moved in with her….Brandi saying F off and finally getting to say her peace without fear of being sued and going broke has to be liberating.

  25. Nicola says:

    I still don’t understand why the people on here have taken sides on this, when all sides are so unlikable (and so not relevant anymore). I feel sorry for Brandi though, because other than this feud, what does she have? I’m sure LeAnn is paying for her child and spousal support. If anyone should be praying for a long marriage it should be Brandi.

  26. Memphis says:

    More than likely she’s upset because she found another lipstick ring around eddies man parts and it wasn’t her shade.

    But when she does hear Brandi’s remarks, I’m sure her head will explode and C&D letters will be sent all around. Everything she fears, Brandi brought to light. She is fearful Eddie will cheat because if he could do it to Brandi (who he didn’t marry for money and had two kids with) he sure as hell will do it to Leann, and she KNOWS IT!

    And she also knows what she looks like… why the hell do you think she tries so hard to change EVERYTHING about herself…hell, even the RHOBH were calling her out on the stalking!

    She is nothing more than tabloid fodder and a national joke. Her only ‘friends’ are twiiter kiss asses, people she pilfered from Brandi, and Darrell Brown.. who lets face it, isn’t exactly the poster boy for sane behavior.

    Brandi may be rough around the edges but I would rather have someone like her in my life than a sneaky backstabbing snake like Leann.

  27. Green_Eyes says:

    Then next Monday LeAnn will really be balling her eyes out!! Last nights episode of RHOBH, most of the Ladies were in Vegas. At dinner, after getting a better understanding of why Brandi is so tough, in a show of solidarity ALL the Ladies there took swipes (good ones too) at LeAnn, all were true & didn’t paint LeAnn in any nice way. She did or does everything they called her out on.

  28. janie says:

    There must be something wrong with me? I don’t see what the big deal is with Eddie? I’ve seen better looking men @ the grocery. Enough of this crap! Keeps all 3 in the news!

    • Emily says:

      “I’ve seen better-looking men at the grocery.”

      Yep. Eddie’s dull in the extreme; the only personality trait he seems to have is “cheater”. Which is one reason I have a fanfic in my head where Leann and Brandi both get their heads on straight and ride off into the sunset together. And every time they say something mean to each other over a pathetic excuse for a man who’s basically a dick with legs, they’re really saying “I love you.”

    • Zooyork says:

      I think Eddie is an extremely revolting, smarmy, cheesy douche-bag who has feminine thighs (gag).
      Lol @ your comment Emily!!!

  29. Chell says:

    I think I have a girl crush on Brandi!! You go girl!!! As long as Meann continues to run her mouth, then there is no reason for Brandi not to fight back. Can not wait to read her book!!!

  30. Rita says:

    She was “crying” because when she came out of the restaurant and saw the photog, she realized she didn’t have a bikini with her.

    She was distraught about something and I’m sure Liz sent her a bill for the hug.

    For a moment LeAnn looked genuinely sad but when I remembered she is causing great distress and anxiety with her lawsuit against a woman of modest means and a mother of six children, it was nice to see LeAnn suffering a little.

    • Ok says:

      Rita– Leann is causing great distress to a mother of six of modest means…… Who was no shrinking innocent lilley white rose in the situation.

      Leann’s lawsuit got the woman to back off the woman’s mean -girling all over the web. The woman had the recording device ready to roll and was ready to make a profit from it.

      Maybe less time with Internet and more time with all her kids

      • Sapphire says:

        Factually incorrect. The woman involved had a locked twitter account-not mean girling all over the web. And incorrect that she had a recording device ready to go. Are you forgetting that Meann called her?

        That’s the difficulty when you obtain your facts from dubious sources.

      • eileen says:

        Um-you’re incorrect on much of what you just said. Kim’s account was LOCKED and LR had people open fake accounts to follow her so she could read Kim’s comments.
        Then when LR made the call, Kim didn’t start recording until 20 minutes into the conversation and it was only because LR started cussing and was sitting at a table with people who openly harassed Kim in the past. She asked her daughter if she could borrow her phone-which is why LR is also suing a 19 year old student teacher who spends the rest of her time caring for her handicapped siblings.
        LR is a rancid selfish narcissist who will never accept responsibility for her behavior. Done.

      • Cam S says:

        @ Ok: Hon, if I say something negative about a celebrity on social media and they call me AT HOME, you darn well better believe Ima record their crazy butt! AND I’ll play it for everyone to hear while saying “Dang, listen to how crazy __________ is!” What if every celebrity called people who said negative stuff about them? Crazy much?

        Leann is an insecure nutcase (obviously) who wants to bully people into liking her. Notice how well that’s working for her?

      • Rita says:

        Wow, your lack of understanding of the situation is breathtaking. On many LeAnn threads people comment without knowing the particulars but you win the gold medal for commenting without knowing the slightest truth about the situation…but if you support someone who sues a beautifully kind woman who has dedicated her life to the least fortunate I’d expect nothing less.

        Now you can go and throw darts at your Mother Teresa portrait.

      • Ok says:

        Well I got feedback about not knowing the facts. And maybe I don’t know all the facts because there is much misinformation on the web.

        That being said, I did hear a beginning portion that was posted ( before the sites were forced to remove them). And in that recorded portion there was an initial greeting where Leann was identifying herself. So the recording happened right at the beginning.

        What facts I do or don’t know does not change that the woman and her daughter have a problem because the did violate federal wiretapping laws. I am not misinformed on that aspect

      • Jessica says:

        Again, you are misinformed. The “Hey bitch, this is Leann, you have 5 minutes to say whatever you want to me” greeting was reported ONLY. It was not heard in the recording. Its obvious that the recording started smack in the middle of the conversation. I think you are confusing the portions you actually HEARD with some of what you READ about it. And it has also not been determined if the STATE (the lawsuit is based on the CA penal code, has nothing to do with any federal regulations, and was not filed in a federal court) agrees the penal code was violated. That remains to be seen. The penal code states that there is no right to privacy in a phone call if it takes place in public–which this did. You are certainly entitled to your opinion on the matter but much of what you posted regarding it just isn’t correct.

    gawd….damn it. i’m so tired of these two. so god damn tired. this ‘feud’ is the SAME old crap that my BFF’s in school went through. Literally, every other day one of us wasn’t talking to another, or next day hugging and making up…

    if all FOUR of us were feuding at the same time we’d hold a resolution session in my friend’s family van and no one was allowed out until all was resolved. this was jr high…

    brandi could drive leanne crazy, well put her over the cliff of crazy if she flat out ignored her, IGNORE.

    lack of attention for leanne would be the death.

  32. Green_Eyes says:

    Going to try to post again!

    Then LeAnn will really be balling her eyes out Next Monday!!! Last nights episode of RHOBH had several of the ladies in Vegas w/ Brandi. At dinner, after realizing why Brandi acted so tough all the time w/ the other cast mates, as a show of solidarity they ALL took swipes at LeAnn & they were pretty good ones. Everything the Housewives called her out on are things LeAnn has done or is doing.. Though she’d deny it.

  33. eileen says:

    HAHAHA LR is full of sh!t! I know the photographer who took the photos and sold them. This wasn’t one of her typical Pap Photo-Ops and LR WAS bawling. Her song writer, Darrell Brown, was there too and he chased the pap once he saw them. lol That is actually a REAL one that she didn’t call up from her speed dial.
    And notice she’s not wearing her ring? Hmmmmmmm…..

  34. LeeLoo says:

    After hearing and seeing how classy Liberty Ross has handled herself it makes these Brandi Glanville stories just that little bit more tiresome.

    Don’t get me wrong, Brandi has every right to be bitter. I just wish she didn’t have to bitter in public. At the same time, I wish LeAnn Rimes would go away and find the nearest insane asylum and stay there. I just hope Brandi and Eddie’s boys are safe from all the drama.

    • mln76 says:

      I posted something yesterday about this. If you want to believe the media has been easier on Kristin a big piece of that is how classy Liberty has been about the whole the Mini-Coopering. And yes I know LeeAnn was Single White Femaling her or whatever but 4 years later Brandi is still milking this til it’s dry. I believe Liberty is doing right by herself and her kids by moving on with dignity.

    • eileen says:

      Exert from Brandi’s book:

      “But the 40-year-old, who has two sons, Mason, 9, and Jake, 5, with Eddie, knew there was something going on between her ex and LeAnn after the two met on the set of the TV movie Northern Lights in fall 2008.

      “LeAnn had ‘accidentally’ smeared some cake frosting on her top (she was still a bigger girl and completely flat-chested at the time) and asked my husband, not realizing that I was standing behind the both of them, if he wanted lick it off her,” she recalls in the book. “This woman asked my husband if he wanted to eat the frosting mess she’d dropped on her nonexistent chest? … He hadn’t realized I was there, either, and he laughed with hungry eyes at the suggestion.”

      Ain’t that a kick in the head!!??

      • LeeLoo says:

        Just when I’m getting over strep throat. Now I have to deal with having that image of LeAnn burned into my head. But I do see your point, Eileen.

        I know you are tight with Brandi and support her. No one can blame Brandi from going nuts having to deal with the bag of crazy known as LeAnn, especially with SWFing. At the same time, wouldn’t it be healthier for her sons if she kept the drama more on the downlow. She has to realize this doesn’t make her look good.

      • Baylor says:

        That story about Leann plus the video of her sucking his fingers, prove that she was not this guilt stricken girl laying around all day trying to make herself walk away from Eddie. No. Sorry Leann, but after all this, no one will believe your fake tears.

      • Emily says:

        he laughed with hungry eyes at the suggestion

        That was a “kick in the head” from her *husband*. So some other woman is throwing herself at your husband, so what. If he’s a decent husband, he’ll roll his eyes and walk away; or, if he has to work with this woman, smile in that I’m-not-really-amused way and change the subject.

        Any woman who’s married to a man she can only trust if no attractive woman goes after him isn’t really married at all.

      • Ming says:

        @eileen: thanks for the book quotes! What a gross mental picture of presurgery leann trying to put the moves on Eddie with Brandi right there. Disgusting.

    • why? says:

      Liberty’s experience is different because: KS apologized right from the start(she didn’t have her friends giving interviews to People mag about how her married boyfriend was going to leave his wife by his next anniversary), KS didn’t encourage her fans to stalk and harass Liberty, KS wasn’t telling her fans personal information about Liberty and then sending them to spread it on public forums, KS didn’t SWF Liberty, KS did interviews about how she didn’t like being called a HW, but she didn’t give back to back sit down interviews about how she didn’t regret her affair with a married man.

      Liberty can be civil because KS isn’t using her children as weapons against her and isn’t sitting on twitter having conversations with parent’s from the children’s school about Libertys kids.

      KS laid low and didn’t continue to add salt to the wounds by setting up pda photos with her married boyfriend.

      I’m not making excuses for KS, but Liberty and Brandi are dealing with two different things.

      • LeeLoo says:

        All these things are true. At the same time, even if Rupert and Kristen hooked up again, and Kristen was pulling the same nonsense, I just don’t see Liberty handling it the way Brandi has. Liberty would deal with it privately.

      • Karma says:

        Liberty is an established actress with a way to support herself and a soon to be ex with future employment prospects.

        While Brandi was a housewife who gave up her career for motherhood and needed a job in order to keep her kids. If she didn’t have suitable housing then Eddie and Leann could have stolen them from her in court and apparently tried. She certainly couldn’t move out of state, where it is cheaper, with a 50% custody ruling.

        Clearly, someone at Bravo heard about the stalker-Leann who just wouldn’t quit harassing Eddie’s ex and offered Brandi a job and a way to fight back.

        So it’s Brandi’s job to share this aspect of her life, which makes being private, a luxury Brandi literally can’t afford. She would get fired. And it’s crazy Leann and Eddie who put her in that position.

        Sorry but the two situations still don’t compare. And I be will to bet that Brandi wishes she was walking in Liberty’s shoes as well instead of dealing with Leann.

      • Zooyork says:

        Bang-on points, why and karma.

  35. Samantha says:

    For someone who cares so much about her kids, Brandi sure has no problem sticking them right in the middle. She’s just making it harder for her kids to be happy when they’re with their father and Leann.

    If no kids were involved, it’d be funny. Bitchy but funny. And it’s easy to see why Brandi would want to say it–but jeebuz, this feud must make life difficult for those boys.

  36. Jayna says:

    The Housewives show is dragging this season for the most part, no great storylines that interest me. Last night was a borefest. I see some being knocked off. Brandi won’t be, but her storyline is getting old. Some of these people are big hits the first few years but then it’s the same ol same ol and the love wears off from the viewers. I hope Brandi is going to be banking some of this money.

    • Cinnamon says:

      I see Adrienne and Camille and Yolanda leaving if not Taylor as well. Adrienne’s life imploded mid season and shes having a mid life crisis at the moment, Camille seems over it, and Yolanda is boring.

      That being said,
      Brandi deserves to be able to speak about her experience. leann put forth this love story that was all rainbows and true love unicorn sunshine when really the affair was gross and full of dirty betrayals as the book excerpt reveals. Leann can write a song about borrowing a married man and spitting fire at his ex wife and have it considered art but when Brandi writes her truth its all bad? meh.

      Brandi’s delivery is just more harsh than Leann’s so it comes across worse in some ways but I am buying this book and I dont care what anyone thinks about it. I need some good Kindle time.

  37. Macey says:

    New blind on CDAN is thought to be LR & Ediot. sounds like them to me…

    It happened again. This B list celebrity with A list name recognition caught her C list actor husband with A list name recognition with another woman. Well, not actually together, but he couldn’t delete his phone fast enough and the celebrity caught him. The thing is, she went ballistic and there was a big fight but she has not kicked him out because she doesn’t want to look like an idiot.

  38. G says:

    I love Brandi and the back handed comment “with someone as attractive as her” was absolutely brilliant and exactly how you deal with mean b*tches.

  39. Holden says:

    I have no idea why I read so much about the most boring feud between nobodies ever, but I do. Brandi’s response was all time, perfect.

  40. SouthernGal says:

    Good Gawd people!!! Google LeAnn Rimes and there is tons of information on her stalking Brandi. I started following this mess in 2010 and LeAnn Rimes was taunting Brandi every damn chance she could. Now I don’t agree with everything Brandi is saying (because of the kids) but dammitt LeAnn deserves every piece of negativity coming her way.

    This woman has publicly taunted and stalked Brandi. I get affairs happen everyday but what LeAnn should have done was STFU and enjoyed her bought prize. As a woman, mother and wife of 20+ yrs, I am appalled at reading some of these remarks. Try having your family torn apart by a psycho bitch who use your children as pawns to taunt you and is passive aggressive in interviews, Twitter, and writes and entire album glorifying her affair with your husband…then have someone tell you to move on.

    Brandi has a platform to speak and any sane person would use that platform to their advantage.

    • Linda says:

      Agree, it’s Brandi’s turn to speak.

      LeAnn, it’s called KARMA, and you ain’t seen nothing yet.

    • Alana Fajina says:

      Girl! Yes. Every Thing about This! YESSS!!

    • candigirl says:

      ITA SouthernGal. I believe the people who tell Brandi to “STFU” and “move on” because “she bores me” don’t understand the pathology of stalking. Stalkers are criminals who terrorize their targets and often ruin their lives. Leann has been terrorizing and SWF-ing Brandi for years using her fame and her money and even using Brandi’s chiidren, putting their lives in danger. Leann taunts and accuses and tries to humiliate Brandi. Until you’ve been stalked for years by a multimillionaire celebrity who wants to destroy your life and take everything from you and BECOME you, you can’t fully understand the situation. This doesn’t excuse Brandi’s behavior, but it mitigates it. The stalking gets to you and can make you slightly crazy yourself. Especially when so many top media personalities are enabling Leann to continue to stalk and taunt Brandi. At this point, even Brandi herself needs to take this situation more seriously and talk about it in a serious tone. Instead of the “F-off” and “Insane” comments, Brandi needs to work with a PR person who can help her calmly explain what being stalked for years by Leann feels like and how it undermines her life. By doing so she faces the problem and takes her control back. Stalking is a crime and people suffer it many times in silence because society doesn’t understand it yet. Brandi has a national platform during this month of “National Stalking Awareness” to come out publicly and speak up for many stalking victims and survivors. I think she would find that there are other celebrities who have similar experiences with stalkers and would offer support.

    • Margarita says:

      Every time I start to judge Brandi for her crassness or the public feuding I end up thinking about how I would react if LeAnn Rimes hijacked my life. Something like that would change who you are forever. It is not simply being cheated on, it is the stalking, harassing, and constant boundary pushing. Some of the things LeAnn has done to Brandi are straight out of those creepy discovery channel crime shows. Imagine being on the receiving end of that.

      Also if the man I love ever did something like that to me and then allowed such a hate-filled person to hurt and degrade me so publicly I would be in much worse shape than Brandi. And I have only been with my boyfriend 4 years, I cannot imagine the pain of that happening in a 13 year relationship/marriage with 2 small children!I don’t think any of this fully excuses Brandi’s behavior, which is sometimes makes me cringe, but regardless I feel an overwhelming amount of sympathy for her and very little for LeAnn.

      I only wish the twitter lunatics who tweet LeAnn really horrible things about her appearance etc would stop and instead just tweet positive things about Brandi. They don’t realize when they go over the line they make B look bad. It is one thing to call LeAnn out on her behavior, it is another to torment her for her looks and send her threatening messages. I also think the extreme twitter crazies are just random trolls who have latched on to the subject and don’t really care about B. The ones who do focus on building her up more than trashing Leann.

      WOW long post sorry

      • SouthernGal says:

        I agree Margarita!!! Two years ago I was stalked by a female who wanted to be the other woman of a friend of mine. Because he was my best friend, she targeted me and not the wife. Could you imagine someone going to your stylist and requesting the same haircut and styling just like yours? Or better yet, she bought the exact same dress I purchased for a dinner I attended and posted it on FB. Talk about crazy!!!! And I wasn’t even the wife.

        There is so much more nasty going on behind the scenes that Brandi doesn’t make public and for that I have much respect. Dealing with a crazy person isn’t easy but having an ex-husband who encourages the current wife to go after the ex is sickening. Eddie Cibrian could have stopped this years ago but his disdain for Brandi (and LeAnn) won’t let him.

        Once this marriage implodes, LeAnn will blame Brandi and the stalking will continue. I just wish the mainstream media would do their research and call her ass out on it. Talk about embarassment.

      • candigirl says:

        Awesome post Margarita! For the record I think that Leann did not only stalk Brandi, there was talk that she did something similar to Andrew Keegan, her boyfriend years ago, when he broke up with her. And I believe it was stalking behavior to go to the lengths she did to get all the information on Kim Smiley and her daughter, phone numbers, private twitter conversations and then call her up and publicly threaten her and bully her. Leann has a history of stalking and threatening people. This is a crime. To all the people who say “two wrongs don’t make a right,” uh, wrong again. Leann is commiting a crime. She should be arrested.

  41. Tootie says:

    Who hugs a friend goodbye like that when they are going to see them again “3 blocks away?” Nice try LeAnn.

  42. Beclove says:

    Leann, girl- fire your publicist. I would rate them F at this point.

  43. BravoCueen says:

    I have NEVER bought a single thing of any of the Housewives. Mostly because I don’t care about them 2 minutes after their show is on. But I pre-ordered Brandi’s book. If it is as biting and hilarious as she is, I’m going to thoroughly enjoy it. I’m actually very impressed with how she came back in life and didn’t let what must be a horrifying trauma (to find out the love of your life has been unfaithful multiple times) and she’s stronger and more beautiful than ever. Go Brandi!!

  44. Sapphire says:

    Jinx!-I was going to say “She HAS a publicist?” Steve Hoenig?

  45. skuddles says:

    Much as I have little use for any of these people, I can’t help but be a bit amused at Brandi’s scathing comment. On the 1 to 10 verbal crotch-kick scale, I’d have to give it a 12.

  46. Bella says:


  47. LG says:

    You know what’s the most hilarious part of all this: Eddie didn’t leave Brandi, she’s the one that left and filed for divorce. Leann was always second best, the “other” woman until Brandi pulled the plug… Eddie is the ultimate douche and Leann is the ugly girl that will take anything she can get from the hot guy.. Typical and Brandi is clearly the winner in all this

  48. Asiyah says:

    I don’t like her comments. I understand that Brandi can’t stand her and that LeAnn is a tough pill to swallow, but exercise some restraint.

  49. dorothy says:

    Enough already. Move on to the next drama.

  50. Newtsgal says:

    Horseface…..I mean LeAnn probably found out that her waitress that day, is just Eddie’s latest sidepiece.
    (If a man will screw around with you, he will screw around on you)

  51. Snowpea says:

    Rimes is the one who has appropriated those kids NOT because she loves them but because she’s smart enough to know they are Brandi’s Achilles heel and it’s where she can hurt her the most.

    Rimes is the one who SWF’d Brandi.

    Rimes is the one who set up fake twitter accounts to tweet ugly, defamatory things to Brandi.

    Rimes is the one who wrote a whole album about her affair with Cibrian.

    Rimes is the one who fabricates, exaggerates and straight up lies at every opportunity.

    And yet who was the perpetrator and who was the victim in this situation? YES! Rimes was the perpetrator and Brandi was the victim! If a normal person breaks up a family and causes that much emotional carnage, don’t they just go away and quietly live their lives away from the spotlight? Rimes has kept giving this thing oxygen FROM DAY ONE.

    F*cken insanity.

    No wonder Brandi feels so victorious being able to FINALLY say how she really feels after dealing with this madness for however long. The tables have turned. Brandi has the power now and Rimes is getting her comeuppance.

    Rimes dear, if you’re reading, you reap what you sow in life. It’s just the natural order of things :)

  52. KellyinSeattle says:

    I saw on a tabloid cover, “She wrecked my life”, w/ a pic of both of them on the cover….I don’t know which one was saying they were the wronged party. I didn’t buy it because LeAnn makes me sick.

  53. lisa2 says:

    I know there are a lot of Team Brandi people. Not sure if it is just because they are anti Leanne. The thing to me that seems so obvious is that Brandi still loves Eddie. She stayed during all the pre- Leanne cheating. I think the problem is Eddie cheated with many women but he didn’t leave Brandi for any of them. With Leanne he left and married her. I know people will say Leanne made him do it, but believe it or not men make their own choices. If Eddie had had the usual affair and went back to Brandi she would be with him to this day. But he did something she didn’t expect he left and didn’t look back. Whether Leanne and Eddie last or not I can see very clearly from her actions that Brandi still wants this man.

    I saw a picture of Brandi on X17 and she looked terrible. I don’t understand what the point is of her and Leanne constantly going back and forth. I think they both understand that they are only relevant with the connection. Without it would anyone care about either of them.

    These are the people that should be on the Tabloids each week. They love the attention. Have no self respect and will air all of their dirty laundry and personal information for the public. Perfect Tabloid Material.

    I don’t see much difference in either woman. I feel for the boys. Thank goodness they are still young.

    • Snowpea says:

      lisa2 I totally agree with you about Brandi still being in love with Cibrian. It’s not something I can even define. But I do sense a strong chemistry still.

      I dont agree though that ‘..he did something she didn’t expect, he left and didn’t look back’ because I think if Brandi had ever said the word he woulda been back like a shot.

      I think that with nowhere else to go, no job, no house, no nothing he took the easiest option and Leann was it. I highly doubt he has ever loved Rimes.

    • Miche says:

      You need to check your facts. Brandi kicked Ed out because she discovered he was a serial cheater. He never wanted to leave. Once Brandi dumped him, his options were either A) be poor and riddled with debt or B) go with the rich chick throwing herself and cash at him. It’s not rocket science to know why he ended up with LR.

      • lisa2 says:

        Do you really think that she would be the first woman to kick a man out and still want him. Still want him to come back. I see this situation as I see it. Not asking for agreement. It is my take. Just like your comment says you think Brandi turned Eddie away. I listened to her talk on that House wife show. I saw her talking to the girl he cheated on. I highly doubted that when he cheated with Leanne, the light came on. I know lots of women that have “kicked the man out” but still want him.

        Brandi still wants Eddie. Whether he would have gone back to her without Leanne, who knows. She stayed through a lot of cheating so maybe he had a good thing and lost it it. Whether the money or not, thing is he left. And that was not what he had done before.

    • claire says:

      I don’t think she’s in love with him. I think the idea that she is starting over makes her sad, and brings the hurt back up, as in the convo with Schaena. It does for a lot of people who thought they had married “the one.” I think she loves her kids hard. I think she (rightfully) loathes Leann. I think she can make jokes about it all now, and can give compliments where any are due, even to the “enemies”, because she IS over that part of it and is stronger than she used to be about it.

    • TheTruthHurts says:

      Sweetheart, if you are going to have such strong opinions, you should get better informed so you know what you are talking about. Brandi was going to try and work things out with Eddie when she found out about LeAnn because he told her it was a one time thing. THEN she found out that he also had been having an affair with Scheana for a few years. It’s when she found out about Scheana that she kicked Eddie to the curb. After that, he told her he had cheated on her their whole marriage. She had no idea. She does not love him anymore beyond being her children’s father and good for those boys she feels that way. Other than that, he makes her skin CRAWL.

  54. K-rock says:

    Oh dear….when Leann sees Brandi’s stripper video all hell is gonna break loose.

  55. Zooyork says:

    I wonder if Brandi is the first person who has ever stood up against LeAnn in LeAnn’s spoiled life…
    Maybe that’s why LeAnn hates her/is in love/obsessed with her.
    I am so glad that Brandi is not meekly backing down like sociopaths are probably used to having people do.
    Plus, major lol and props to Brandi for her funny comments like how no one else would want to do LeAnn.

    • Christin says:

      I have wondered the same thing – if anyone has ever been upfront and strong against her. She’s probably been catered to since she was a kid, as the cash cow for so many. As a teen singer, she struck me as smug, but maybe that’s all that can be expected. She seems to be very mixed up – emotionally stuck in a 14- or 15-year-old mentality in terms of sensibility and social skills.

  56. Christin says:

    LeAnn likely paid a hefty sum to get Dean out of the picture (and keep him quiet). That was one big hit to her fortune from days gone by. Now she’s most likely supporting the new hubby. Her career seems to be in very low gear, so there may be more outflow than inflow on the money front. She’s only 30, after all! That’s why it amazes me that instead of trying to revive her career, she keeps catfighting with Brandi. And Brandi seems to be the one getting the most benefit from it (TV show, book). Really amazing. And where in the world is Eddie? He’s mentioned, but not pictured lately.

  57. Jaxx says:

    When she said she was dumped for someone as attractive as LeeAnn–did she mean UNattractive? Or is she really saying LeeAnn is prettier than her?

  58. Cinderella says:

    LR continues to sabotage a career that could still be revived. She is a talented singer. Her X Factor performance was a mess, but her latest song (What Have I Done) is perfection, IMO. She’s only 30 so there’s plenty of life left in her career. She just needs to get off of the crazy train and rebuild her life in a good way. As for Brandi, after this book, put the money away and close the chapter. Now that she is widely known, engaging, and easy on the eyes, she can make money in many other ways in H-wood.

  59. Prinny says:

    Anytime I start to feel a little sympathy for Leann, I just remember her smug face in those first golf outing pics with Eddie. Where was Brandi and Dean’s sympathy? Oh yeah, there was none. Karma is indeed a bitch.

  60. Miche says:

    Leann will ALWAYS be obsessed with Brandi because she knows she got Ed by default. Leann knows deep down that Ed never wanted to leave Brandi, that’s why she is trying SO hard to morph into her. Now that Brandi is becoming famous and successful in her own right, it will just make Leann’s obsession worse. And the fact that Brandi now has a platform to speak out and bust Leann’s “truth”, it is driving LR to be more crazy.

  61. C.Lynn says:

    I don’t understand why Brandi is insulting Leann’s pre-op chest. Brandi has breast implants, as well, so I don’t understand the point she’s trying to make. Just throwing mud for the heck of it, I guess. Apparently, in Brandi and Leann’s world fake is better than real. Both of these women are horrible.

  62. Carolyn says:

    So much time and effort discussing minute details about these people. It’s obviously got a lot of people worked up. I don’t get it, that’s OK.

  63. Meganne says:

    Ugh. What the heck does she expect? She slept with her husband? Did she think she would invite her over for tea? Leanne had a strange looking face
