Brandi Glanville: ‘It breaks my heart… I’ve never found LeAnn to be remorseful’

Brandi Glanville is all over the media lately, serving up a double whammy: first, her book is being excerpted in nearly every media outlet, and secondly, she’s giving tons of new interviews to promote her book. Some of you love her and some of you really dislike her, but can we all agree on one thing? Brandi is entertaining. Maybe she’s a catastrophe and maybe she’s just really clever at saying the exact thing that will drive LeAnn Rimes up the wall. Whatever is going on, I can’t look away. Anyway, Brandi has a feature in the new issue of Glamour Mag – the gist is basically “What I Learned From Being Cheated On” I guess. Brandi tells the mag, “My story is very different from Eddie and LeAnn’s stor… They have a love story; I have a heartbreak story. But you know what? It’s my truth.” Here’s what she learned:

“Get a little revenge”
First, I called Eddie’s mom. We were very close. I had nursed her through an illness. She basically lived with us. I said, “There’s more than just LeAnn. I’m…I’m not OK.” And I got a knife, and I went out to the garage. I just took it to both of his Harleys. I hated those bikes—my dad had almost died in a motorcycle accident. I had never wanted Eddie on them, because we had children. I slashed all of the tires, and it felt so good. I called his mom back and told her, “I want you to know, I just killed Eddie’s motorcycles.” And she was like, “Thank God.” That night when Eddie got home, I said, “I’m going to move into a hotel for a week, and you need to get out of this house.” At this point, I felt he was a very hands-off father. We had a nanny who lived with us, and it was mostly she and I raising our children. He was like, “I love you— I’ll do anything.” And I said, “If it had been one person [you cheated with], it would’ve been different.” After that I left for the hotel. He refused to move out. He wouldn’t let go of us. And I’m like, “You don’t get to have your cake and eat it too. I’m done.”

“Try not to take the bait”
When I’m home alone on a holiday and LeAnn is tweeting pictures with my children, it breaks my heart. One way I hear from LeAnn is she’ll text me—hurtful things like, “I can’t wait to make your kids lunches and go to soccer….” Marriages break up all the time. People have affairs. Happens every day. It matters how you handle yourself after and if you’re actually remorseful. I’ve never found LeAnn to be remorseful. I found her to be like, “Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, I got your family.”

“Limit the wallowing”
My heartache probably lasted a lot longer than it should have, because in the old days, you broke up with someone, you never saw ‘em again. You’re not seeing pictures of how in love they are. I started to drink too much. I would cry all day. I began taking an antidepressant. I got a DUI and realized I needed to wakeup and let go. I said to myself, “You know what, Brandi? You have a life to live. Why are you obsessing over these two people? You know Eddie loves your children. It’s time to do you.”

I think Brandi’s best point is that LeAnn is now and was always remorseless. LeAnn felt some remorse, I’m sure, but all of that remorse was about how SHE (LeAnn) was treated in the media, how she was victimized and harassed and made to look bad (much of which she did to herself). Now, all that being said, Brandi can talk a good game about no longer wallowing, but she’s selling a book designed for exactly that. The reason I’m kind of cheering for Brandi is because I think she’s attacking LeAnn in a very smart, psychological-warfare kind of way.

Speaking of psychological warfare, you know how Brandi got a vajayjay rejuv and she charged it to Eddie’s credit card? Well, there’s an addendum to that story in Brandi’s book:

Eddie Cibrian, hit the roof after discovering that a $12,000 charge on his credit card was for Brandi’s surgery.

“Well, it didn’t take long for Eddie to call about the bill,” Glanville writes. “A week after the surgery, he was on the phone screaming, ‘What the f**k cost you $12,000? Who the f**k is Dr. Matlock? Did you get a nose job?’”

Brandi says she lied to him, claiming that yes, she had undergone surgery for a nose job, and then immediately hung up, but Eddie was on the ringer again about five minutes later!

“This time I didn’t answer,” she says. “It rang again — and then again. ‘Ahh,’ I thought. Eddie must have discovered Dr. Matlock on Google. I decided it was best to avoid his calls for the next few days while he cooled off.”

Brandi writes that Eddie, who was already seriously involved with his now-wife, LeAnn Rimes, whom he cheated on Glanville with, remained “absolutely livid” because of the charge — “partly because of the price tag, and partly because of his overwhelming jealousy that some other man would reap the benefits of his ex wife’s new p***y.”

Brandi candidly admits that “in hindsight, I know I shouldn’t have put it on Eddie’s card. It was vengeful, and it came back to bite me, because this was something I hoped to keep private.”

Without naming names, Brandi says that Eddie’s then-girlfriend – presumably Rimes – “was beyond ecstatic to be in possession of this crazy personal information, and it didn’t take long for her minions to begin shouting my private business from the social media rooftops.”

I didn’t know LeAnn “shouted” about Brandi’s rejuv, did you? Where did LeAnn talk about it? On Twitter? On her authorized account or on that “WeWe” account? I’d really like to know!

    “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned”

    • hmmmmpf says:

      But I feel like she is being scorned repetedly.

      ” I found her to be like, ‘Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, I got your family’”

      ^^^^^^^ THIS THIS THIS

      I think so too!

      • jilly says:

        Brandi is being scorned because Eddie encouraged Leann to go after the mother of his children IMHO. This is all about his anger but everyone focuses on the women. Wrong focus people.

      • Gemini08 says:

        Exactly. She is right in the real world she would be able to go on with her life but LeAnn continuously publicizes and flaunts her relationship with Eddie’s kids. Eddie still refuses to let Brandi have her kids on her reality show because he wants to “protect their privacy” but has no problem with LeAnn tweeting pics of them in the school classroom. It’s a continuous middle finger Brandi gets from those two.

    • RHONYC says:

      D-I-T-T-O!
      i’m team Brandi all day, errday!
      mistresses of the world…your mascot is being put on HIGH BLAST!

      Bran, get that money honey.
      i’ve pre-ordered my copy to throw my support in your hat to rep all the cheated on ex-wives in the world (yours truly included).

      your whole “I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR BEETCHEZ” is very inspiring!

      who says you have to just lay down & take some filthy horse face interloping whore destroying your family with quiet grace.

      p.s. – to correct Ivana’s statement: get and STAY mad AND get EVERYTHING god*mmit!

      the end. ;-)

  2. Dee says:

    I am getting so tired of this woman. Her book sound like it will be entertaining but she needs to shut up and just let people read the damn thing. I know she needs to promote but good God: YOU ARE NOT THE FIRST AND WILL NOT BE LAST PERSON TO HAVE A MAN CHEAT ON AND BETRAY YOU. We are not commiserating with you, we are laughing at you and everyone involved (except the kids).

    She will drag this one until everyone get tired of humoring her antics and she becomes as much of a laughing stock as she’s trying to make LeAnn.

    • Macey says:

      She never claimed she was the first person to be cheated on, she’s simply telling her side of things. Like she said, LR has done many interviews talking about her side of things since the affair happened. this book is Brandi’s way of getting her side out and putting closure on it. I think her PR team is the one putting all the stories out there. I do agree that it’s a bit overkill right now but then that happens anytime someone is trying to sell something. Dont forget, LR has already done a dozen interviews promoting an album based on the same affair that isnt even out until next spring.

      • Dee says:

        I know. However, my point is that if she told her side without all the theatrics (which I know is the standard sell considering: Hollywood)and without all the woe is me then she might be a more sympathetic character. I’m not saying don’t tell your side but seriously apart from being a juicy peace of gossip what about her story warrants a book deal?

        I’m not gonna lie, I’ll probably read her book anyway, but not because I care. At this point it’s like an interesting bit of fiction. Non of these people exist in my world. It’s like watching a soap.

      • LAK says:

        Dee – LeAnn made this woman a star. That’s why she got a book deal, a TV show and clothing line etc.

        Rather than quietly enjoy her newfound happiness with her new husband, she’s spent the past few years shining a spotlight on Brandi by name or showing off or morphing into her.

        I must admit that is why I went looking for Brandi. I had to know what was so special about her that LeAnn was behaving this way.

        Brandi has turned the spotlight to her financial advantage, just like many people who are thrust into it.

        Of course she has to tell it with theatrics. Why else would anyone buy the book when this story is an everyday one.

        All the good tell alls / kiss and tells have theatrics.

        Can we forget ‘a low Vera’? (Julia Roberts) ‘there were 3 people in the marriage, so it became crowded/Rottweiler’ ( Diana), pity parties at the beach/ ‘uncool’ (Jen Aniston). Who would read a story that didn’t have theatrics? And this time, no need to speculate on whether reports are making it up. It’s coming straight from the horse’s mouth.

      • Dee says:

        LAK – You’re quite right. I don’t disagree with anything you’ve said but like I said initially I’m just reaching a saturation point with this whole story.

        But her book is still going to be sensationalist fiction to me. I wouldn’t take everything Brandy writes as gospel.

        This story is so exhausting.

    • kristiner says:

      Thank you! Though I’m convinced she and Leann are in cahoots. WHO is Brandi Glanville? The no name ex-wife of a no name TV actor.

      Had he not cheated with someone as known as Leann Brandi wouldn’t be in the spotlight. She owes her media career TO Leann.

      So she use to model? But she wasn’t known. If not for the constant Leann harping no one would know her from Eve.

      • ColdRock says:

        Excuse me? So you’re saying that Brandi should be “grateful” she had her family broken up? Brandi did not want nor look for fame. She didn’t ask for any of this. Its not her fault Leann destroyed her family. If you asked Brandi I can guarantee you she’d say she’d prefer her family whole again and having her children 100% of the time than 50%, just for fame. And has said so herself. She never asked for any of this. But now she is thrust in the spotlight BECAUSE of LR, she has to deal for her ans the children’s benefit. I think what you wrote is sad, nasty, cruel and mean-spirited.

      • Josephina says:

        @Cold Rock

        Let’s not forget that Eddie committed and Brandi has acknowledged Eddie’s MULTIPLE AFFAIRS. Eddie’ affair(s) were not a transgression, nor a single act of crossing the line— he indulged in a LIFESTYLE OF CONTINOUS CHEATING. Eddie’s LAST affair with LeAnn was the most obnoxious, most blatant of all of them. That affair was the FINAL straw that broke the camel’s back.

        Brandi had endured over a decade of cheating, lies and deception from her husband. Any wife would be sick of Eddie– no matter how much she loved him.

        By the time LeAnn came into the picture, that marriage was truly broken. Unfortunately Brandi chose to stay in her marriage and endured more pain…because she could not see herself walking away yet.

        Well, the last “In-your-face Brandi” affair gave her a pep in her step to let the womanizer go.

      • Zimmer says:

        I guess Brandi should write LeAnn a thank-you note.

    • SAM says:

      Couldn’t agree more! I am so tired of hearing her whine!

      The only reason she is famous is because she was cheated on, I had absolutely no idea who this woman was until after the story broke. Go get a job in an office, work to support your kids and stop bringing it up. She is still the only one bringing it up.

      • Lucy says:

        I was pretty impartial to LeAnn before this entire situation blew up, but now I can’t stand her because she introduced this Brandi woman to the world. I cannot wait for all 3 of these adults to disappear. The sad thing is, none of them seem to genuinely care about the kids or they’d be putting their needs first, and publishing their private business through interviews, books, and photo-ops is not putting the kids first. The 3 of them should be ashamed of themselves.
        P.S. Brandi needs to move on, she will never be happy otherwise. And blaming her DUI on LeAnn was the last straw for me. You don’t put other people’s lives in jeopardy because you got left for another woman.

      • Emelu says:

        Totally agree with Sam & Lucy. Let it go already!

    • lindy says:

      You’re so right; she isn’t the first woman to be cheated on. But it would have been so much easier for her to go on with her life if it hadn’t been for LeAnn constantly talking about the affair, arranging pap shots, sniping at Brandi on twitter.
      I truly can’t understand what motivates LeAnn. She actually seems to hate Brandi and yet, LeAnn’s the one who broke up a family. Go figure.

  3. Macey says:

    Its already been mentioned on here long before Brandi’s book even came out that LR told her twitter minions about the surgery. they taunted BG about it for a long time, even going as far as to make pictures and posting them under different accounts. I think that is the only reason she even mentioned it in her book b/c the info was already out there.

    Whats funny is now LR is tweeting about her book being lies. I truly think LR has convinced herself that BG’s marriage to Ediot never existed. She tried to call Scheana a liar as well. In her mind she truly believes she is the only one he’s ever been with. It just goes to show how delusional and crazy LR really is.

    • Deanne says:

      About a year ago,one of the minions who is allegedly a graphic artist,(I use the term artist very loosely) made a really disgusting Brandi doll poster that had a picture of a sewing needle and a caption about her surgery and another just tweeted a couple of days ago, “I told ya so” #sorry#notsorry, when the vag rejuve story came out. She has also posted about it on Just Jared for the last few years. Really vulgar posts about Brandi’s privates. It’s sick. Then they all tweet ridiculous things about kindness and call all of Brandi supporters classless and bullies. There are plenty more examples. People tell Brandi to be more discreet when her husband’s new wife/wallet has told strangers on twitter, who kiss up to her, about Brandi’s private medical information. LeAnn has also allegedly allowed people to listen to Brandi’s phone messages to Eddie that are regarding the boys. LeAnn is a completely evil hag and I’m glad that Brandi’s getting her chance to tell her side of a story. LeAnn’s true nature is being exposed and the ugliness isn’t just on the outside, she’s a horribly ugly person inside as well.

      • claire says:

        It feels like it’s been several years since they had used that info to bolster their bullying of her. I know the comic he made of her is from 2011, but I want to think that the talk about it is even longer than that. It’s been a long-running joke to imply she’s a whore, etc.

        They’re trying real hard to blow that off, saying it’s all “alleged” that they talked about it. I laugh. Anyone following this whole time has believed that Leann was having inappropriate discussions with fans on Twitter and feeding them Brandi’s info. I don’t see how she’s going to explain away this one.

        When that gang was doing all that crazy taunting, back before Brandi had lots of fans, who now give it back to Leann, it seems, those people were pretty vicious and Brandi never really referenced it much. It’s good to see her calling that out in her book. I wonder if she also mentions the things that Leann’s employees were frequently saying about her in public?

    • SD_R_SR says:

      See, I find it weird that this surgery is even something to make fun of a woman for. She gave birth to two kids and as a result her vag was no longer what is used to be, so she did something about it. No one would tease a mother of two for getting a boob lift or implants after breastfeeding.

  4. Cherry says:

    I’m still fascinated by that vaginal juvenation story. I did not even know you could do that. And seriously, her ex was mad ‘because of his overwhelming jealousy that some other man would reap the benefits of his ex wife’s new p***y’? Is that how it works? Do men prefer ‘new p***y’ to what is presumably ‘old p***y’? Should we all get one? Is this a thing now? So many questions.

    • crumbcake says:

      Well, after giving birth to my child, I can definitely say that things are not quite the same in that area as they were before. I have seen this type of surgery featured on that Dr. 90120 show. If I had an extra $12K laying around (and if I wasn’t such a chicken about surgery), I would consider doing it.
      I also think it’s sweet revenge on Eddie–he got a new vajajay (LR) and Brandi “paid” for it (emotionally), so it only seems fair to me that Eddie pay for Brandi’s new vajajay. Since he is not apparently capable of real human emotions, she hit him where it would really hurt him the most–in the pocket book. Seems like justice to me.

      • Cherry says:

        I’m sorry crumbcake for, uhm, getting my nose in you ladybusiness, so to speak, but what would be the result of such an operation? I don’t have children myself, but I assume you mean that your v is not as tight as it used to be- is that what it is? They tighten it up again, like when you get a facelift? I guess I find the term ‘new p***y’ confusing. They don’t remove yours and put a new one in, do they? I’m sorry to be nosey, but this stuff fascinates me.

      • good_as_gold says:

        Ok, as a naive childless person, I would like to ask, do things really get that bad ‘down there’ after natural childbirth? Or was it Brandi being extremely vain and surgery obsessed in typical beverly hills style fashion of wannabe celebs?

        I also would like to add, that it is refreshing to hear her personal outtakes on the cheating saga. Fame-whore, admittedly, and yes, she is cashing onto it, but at the same time, when so many others keep their pain private, there is something enlightening about hearing it.

      • telesma says:

        It seems like justice to me, too, but I had another thought as well. It occurred to me that after years of living with a serial cheater, she may have had some self-esteem issues and been self-conscious about her vagina, like it wasn’t good enough. He may have even been cad enough to complain about it and try to use post-childbirth “changes” to excuse his philandering. There could have been nothing wrong with it whatsoever, but he may have made her feel like it wasn’t good enough for him because he needed to make her feel like his cheating was her fault. Because otherwise, I can’t imagine taking that risk (nerve damage, loss of sensation) if you don’t have some kind of damage that needs repairing.

    • LAK says:

      I have heard about this type of surgery for a decade at least, but not for post birth tightening. Rather for women whose cultures require that they present as virgins on their wedding night.

      • Callie says:

        I just wanted to weigh in here on what I know of vag rejuvenation surgery, of which I am supportive of, and have consulted with a p.s in Laguna Hills, whom I found to be very compassionate and informative. There are all kinds of reasons a woman might consider this surgery, particularly after birth where the pelvic floor muscles can be damaged, making it more difficult to constrict during intercourse. This lack of friction can make sex less pleasurable to both parties, and, in some cases make a woman feel self-conscious. It’s important to take into consideration that it is not just birth that can cause the pelvic floor to collapse, but also the natural aging process, or trauma from past sexual experiences (sexual assault, abusive lover, etc.) Once I discoled to my friends that I had considered this surgery, MANY of them wanted to know about it, and I made sure to talk with them in a way that was non-judgemental and humane, since I understand how hard it can be to even talk about. I congratulate Brandi for speaking her truth about this, and if it empowers more women to feel less self-conscious and able to have a conversation/find out more, all the better. There are some situations and some relationships where Kegel exercises may improve vaginal function, but for cases where surgery can help to repair and restore vaginal integrity, I do not think a woman should have to feel shameful for investigating her options. Every woman knows what is right for her body and esteem, and she has a right to investigate or reject this surgery or any other type of modification or self-improvement if she feels it will enhance her enjoyment of life.

    • Kitkerenina says:

      May want to look up the terms P***y Goggles, and Potwa on urban dictionary. All about men obsessed with New P***y.

    • Liv says:

      There’s a surgery which is called labiaplasty, if I’m right – they cut your labia if it’s too long. But that has nothing to do with your v*** after giving birth I guess. It’s somehow weird, people really get crazy.

      By the way, it was pretty stupid of Brandi to put her surgery on Eddie’s paycheck when she wanted to keep it private, wasn’t it?

    • MidwifeMe says:

      The ridiculous aspect of this surgery is that the natural response of a woman’s vagina, when sexually aroused, is to expand and lengthen. Religiously doing Kegels (and squats; don’t forget to exercise the rest of the muscles down there!) should be enough to restore vaginal tone.

      Obviously extreme situations and injuries are exceptions, but this isn’t just a simple surgery. You’re dealing with a lot of nerve endings and delicate tissue. Like breast implants, the results after surgery may look more attractive (to some), but there are risks, particularly loss of sensation.

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      A couple of guy friends said it straight: P*ssy is P*ssy, as long as it’s clean! Anyway, LeAnn is not remorseful because she has a pathological problems, and next time LeAnn goes on “vacation” , she’ll be wearing pants like that. Don’t like Brandi’s dress; looks like something my grandma would buy at Walmart. Also, I saw ET last night (my guy friend said that LeAnn looked like a lizard), but Brandi said that after her book tour, she’s DONE. Let’s hope so…it’s the best thing she could do and it’ll drive LeAnn nuts not to have the drama; if Brandi fades out of the spotlight for awhile (not saying she will) – look for LeAnn to act out even more toward her (in a way, Brandi is her meal ticket).

  5. Cherry says:

    By the way, is that Brandi in the top pic? I assume so, but she looks like a totally different person! Maybe it’s the hair?

  6. I.want.shoes says:

    I have to admit that if my husband’s mistress behaved like my kids were her kids and rubbed it in my face all the time, I would turn pretty violent.

  7. lisa2 says:

    I saw this on another site. Not sure because it is from Dumblisted.. but did this really come out of her mouth. And if it did.. How will her fans defend this. I guess anything goes to promote a book.

    ***********************
    “Six years after I moved to Europe, I came back to Los Angeles to shoot a Coors Light commercial and ended up in an obnoxious nightclub called Grandville on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. Across the bar, I spotted an insanely attractive Cuban man who just couldn’t keep his eyes off me, and I couldn’t keep my eyes off him either. It was love at first sight – or perhaps, lust. Yes, we slept together that first night. I would never endorse sleeping with someone you just met, because half of the fun is the challenge. But, man, was it fucking hot! I used to joke that he ‘raped’ me. Rape jokes are never funny, except when they are. I was saying, ‘No,no,no,’ the entire time, but we all know that despite the adage, sometimes no does mean yes.”

  8. Samigirl says:

    I just cannot wait to put this on my kindle. I have empathy for Brandi, and I’ll support her any way I can. She’s absolutely correct about LR not having any remorse. And if she IS sending Brandi texts like that, she’s even more disgusting than I thought. Taunting a mother about being in her children’s lives is SICK.

  9. SusieQ2 says:

    I like Brandi. That is all.

  10. RN says:

    I do find her entertaining and her sound bites amuse me.

  11. lassie says:

    I guess I can see her point. The smugness of MeAnn is insufferable; I’d want to hurt those who hurt me over and over again.

    Plus, it’s always entertaining to see others get revenge–the irony of a country song coming to life, and MeAnn is the ‘other woman’ instead of the wronged angelic wife. Good stuff.

    • Bex says:

      I’d just like to know why LR has done all this? The vicious taunting – I can remember the vile high-case rants her supporters used to write on here when we first started discussing Brandi. Also the copying, if she hates Brandi so much, why the same hairdresser, surgeon, clothes, even car for heaven’s sake?
      I suppose it is one reason why this story has so many interested, LR’s behaviour is just so bizarre.

  12. Laura says:

    Anyone who cares about these nobodies and their stupid drama leads a very sad and pathetic life. That’s especially for Brandi fans since they’re the ones who run to this website all the time to defend her.

  13. Riana says:

    I feel for her in terms of the cheating and having to deal with a psycho bitch.

    I still feel as though the way she’s handled things has only made an already ridiculous and horrible situation escalate. This interview was good because it was strictly about her HUSBAND and she didn’t go it of her way to leak too many embarrassing and crazy things.

    I think this makes more sense, but the reality is…as their Mom and a woman who claims their Father has basically been a disappointment in how much he takes care of them…I’m going to need her to bite the bullet and think of those kids.

    If they’ve already got a shit dad and a psycho step-mom then it’s your job more than ever to be the mature responsible parent who ignores the bullshit and helps them. There comes a time when those kids will choose who they come to for security, she shouldn’t make herself look as reckless as the other two options they have.

    Yes, you miss out on the vengeance and the public declaration of condemnation for two people who hurt you so much. But that’s part of being a good mom, you sometimes miss out on the things that you’d like for yourself selfishly for the good of your kids. The reward comes when they’re self-aware to go “Thanks Mom, I see now how much you sacrificed for me.”

    • Lulu says:

      Well said Riana. I do feel for Brandi and the pain she went through. I can’t imagine having to endure the taunting, but you know what? She could have refused to engage. She didn’t have to look at Leann’s twitter account. I understand that it must have been incredibly hard on her, but if she was worried about her children’s safety she should have hired a lawyer, not had public squabbles with Leann and Eddie about it via Twitter and emails made public.

      I know she suffered, but she is an adult. Her children suffered too, and she should have put them first. Period.

      • LAK says:

        LeAnn and her minions tweeted these things to Brandi. She didn’t have to look at LeAnn’s twitter, they came to her.

        Of course the sensible thing would have been to delete her twitter account, but some people aren’t that sensible.

        It also seems that she didn’t have any money and had serious debts so hiring a lawyer wasn’t an option.

        She said in an interview last month that the reasons she makes it all so public is because LR and Eddie won’t engage with her privately, not even to discuss the kids and their needs. Allegedly, when she does take it to twitter, thus embarrassing them (and her), is when she gets a response.

        I hope this book makes her enough money to hire lawyers so she can make the private arrangements work without having to resort to social media and interviews.

    • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

      Riana and Lulu: I know that the BrandiApologists will come raining down on you for your comments, but I just wanted to say that I agree with everything you both said.
      It’s already a horrible situation for all involved in this Z-List trio, but there’s no need for Brandi to stoop right down to Eddie and LeAnn’s already grotty level. The kids should ALWAYS come first.

  14. V4Real says:

    I don’t care what CB or anyone else think I’m starting to like Brandi. I’ll go as far as saying I have a girl crush on her.

      I’m shocked to say I might be right there with ya. She has grown on me. Stories about her used to make me roll my eyes, and I don’t watch her show so I only know her from these gossip pieces. But I gotta admit – starting to find her fun.

      • Boxy Lady says:

        I like her too and I don’t even watch her show. I just read about her on these gossip sites. I’m glad that she is finding ways to use this to her advantage. If I were put into this position, I would want to make as much money as possible for my kids because money is power. I wouldn’t have to depend on my ex and his new wife to give me money for my kids, I could take care of them on my own. There has to be a certain amount of peace that comes with financial independence and I think this is what Brandi is working towards, first and foremost.

        Also, I think it’s interesting that people think Brandi telling her side of the story will hurt her kids. It wasn’t a situation that she created so I don’t think she should be blamed for it. Plus, if I had kids and their father cheated on me, I would want to make it explicitly clear to my children that cheating is not okay. I would not want them to go down that road just because their father did it. I would do everything in my power to show them that there is a real and actual human cost to cheating.

        So when Brandi says that she is putting her children first, I can see that. I understand it.

  15. SmokeyBlues says:

    I still think of Brandi as a drunk mess. It irritates me that she and everyone else just brushes past the fact that she got a DUI, like it’s nothing. She could have killed or maimed someone, but she treats it like a cute little step on her road to a “wake-up call”. Anyone who can be so blasé about driving drink is a piece of trash.

    • Theskinny says:

      It irritates me that Leann fans come on here and bring up a DUI when their hero broke up a marriage and then wrote a song about screwing a married man without thought for the ex spouses or the children.

    • Theskinny says:

      KJ are speaking for Smokey now? lol Now THAT is high school. lmao

      • KJ says:

        Not speaking for anyone. But the kneejerk “you must be a LeAnn fan” is tired and old and D-U-M-B. It’s an interesting assumption considering that LeAnn wasn’t mentioned in the original comment.

        I don’t comment regularly so if Smokey is a known LR fan, I wouldn’t know. I was attempting to defend that commenter from what, to me, seemed like an unreasonable and unsupported attack. But no good deeds go unpunished I suppose.

      • mln76 says:

        Ever stop to think she’s speaking for someone who died the hands of a drunk driver?

      • KJ says:

        min76 – Thank you. Why exactly do you have to be a fan or hater of someone in order to point out that driving under the influence is irresponsible and dangerous, no matter who is doing it? Some people just don’t get it.

      • Anon says:

        Seems that KJ and Smokey have the same opinion..not speaking for each other. I agree with KJ. Does that make me high school also?

        I read comments here all the time and am constantly amazed at the way some of you go at each other. It’s a bit nutty. But entertaining-so thank you!

    • Jambalya says:

      I know in America they don’t make distinctions between drink-driving and drunk-driving but I wish they would. Its one thing to be like 3 or more times over the legal limit and slurring and wandering all over the road. But its entirely another to be like Brandi was and that was a point of a point over the limit. I wish they would refer to it as drink driving like other countries do, because not all drivers who are under the influence are actually “drunk”. There is a big difference between driving staggeringly drunk, and being on, or just over, the limit. Not all “driving under the influence” is actual *drunk* driving. Actual *drunk* driving is rare.

      • mln76 says:

        That isn’t true there are different levels of DUI based on blood alcohol level. The enabling going on here is staggering.

      • Jambalya says:

        The fact that ALL cases of DUI are referred to as “*drunk*driving” proves it is true, or else why wouldn’t it be called something else? No one makes a distinction. Its ALL “drunk” driving even when the driver isn’t even drunk. Its one thing I noticed about Americans. Its drunk-driving, and nothing else. Every dui is called “drunk” driving. Nothing to do with ‘enabling’ at all. Just pointing out that its never called anything but “drunk” driving. Pointing out a factual observation. Nothing to do with Brandi. When people on here and in society talk, they say DRUNK driving. NO distinction is ever made between just on or just over the legal limit and ACTUAL BLIND DRUNK driving. There is a massive, massive difference. Between a DRUNK driver who kills someone, and someone who is just over the legal limit but no where near drunk, and who doesn’t kill anyone.

        Drink-driving or Driving Under the Influence is a more accurate term than DRUNK-driving.

      • SmokeyBlues says:

        I’m not a LR fan in any way, I’m just as apt to comment on her shenanigans and narcissism as I am on Brandi’s trashy drunkness. I really don’t get why people defend her so strongly.

        And why on earth would you defend ANY kind of driving under the influence? People are killed and lives are ruined every day by people drinking and driving, even one point over the limit is too much.

      • KJ says:

        The courts do make distinction based on blood alcohol level. This is a fact. Colloquially referring to it as “drunk driving” does not erase the different sentences and punishments that are doled out on a case by case basis.

        Most people believe, rightly so, that any level of being under the influence can impair your driving. Doesn’t matter if the alcohol is just starting to take an effect or you’re shmammered drunk. You are still not in a condition to operate a motor vehicle because you have a depressant that impairs motor skills in your system. Your sentence can be based on the level of impairment, but if you’re impaired, you’re impaired. There’s no acceptable level of impaired to be operating a car.

      • bluhare says:

        Jambalaya: I agree with you, and before everyone jumps on me I was convicted of DUI way back in the dinosaur ages. I think there is a very big difference between someone who had one or two glasses of wine at a party and drives home (and I bet a lot of you have done exactly that and you were legally drunk even though you weren’t pulled over) and me who blew a .16 and am an alcoholic. I haven’t had a drink since that DUI so it was a blessing in disguise for me.

    • Zooyork says:

      mln, you said “brandi drinks like a fish.” Have you ever noticed how much eddie drinks? He always has a drink on hand.

      • mln76 says:

        Again I really dislike Eddie,LeeAnn,,and Brandi.
        The DUI gets brought up because it directly relates to why Brandi had problems in custody hearings you would think in that case a mother would way booze vs custody of her kids and choose sobriety. She didn’t and her fans know that.

      • claire says:

        I don’t bring it up because I don’t know what we’d say about it at this point. It was a few years ago, she was depressed/drinking, got a DUI, did diversion, got license back, uses a driver now. Are we supposed to bring it up on every story, no matter the topic and villify her for killing someone even though she didn’t?

        Anyway mln76, what evidence is there that it affected her custody? They have 50/50. I’ve never read/heard anything about it affecting her custody hearings so I’m curious about that.

      • Zooyork says:

        Of course no one should ever drink and drive, but, mln, you state that Brandi should have chosen sobriety to get maximal custody of her children.
        I don’t think she needs to be sober.
        She’s an adult and is legally entitled to have some drinks if she wants to.
        Lots of adults with children drink sometimes and it doesn’t mean they’re bad parents.

      • mln76 says:

        I think one could very well make the case for full custody if Brandi was able to prove all allegations in court. That would entail her being spotless also.

  16. Megan says:

    I think there is a level of let go of the affair. However, I understand Brandi’s rage and continued venom because and only because of how LeAnne acts about the kids.

    She may not be handling it in the best light but those are her kids and LeAnne needs to learn to respect that and stop trying to stake claims and act like she is equal to or more important to Brandi. I don’t have kids but I have a niece and if some woman did to my sister what LeAnne does to Brandi with those kids I’d go crazy. I would go absolutely crazy on her that trick. LeAnne wants to win and get good PR and not be a positive part of those kids life and family and that is disgusting.

    Brandi might not be handling it the best way but I understand it.

  17. Lily says:

    Hmm, this is another story about cheating and how it become in the end always women vs. woman. Where is the cheater? He has face and name. Why isn’t he the active side of this conflict? Why is he in the background? The same shit was with Aniston-Pitt-Jolie. It was Team Aniston vs. Team Jolie. There was no Team Pitt. Why?

    • Cherry says:

      Team Pitt tends to be team Jolie. But shh, let’s not wake the brangeloonies.

    • bettyrose says:

      ITA, but I think the issue in this case is that the “he” in the situation is a pointless d-bag. The mistress/new wife holds most of the power in this dynamic, and she’s using it to do evil. Leann COULD make this right, but she doesn’t. Brandi probably knows her ex is a wet noodle who won’t lift a finger to do what’s best for the kids (i.e. get these two to stfu), so she has to take it into her own hands.

    • KJ says:

      Because she doesn’t blame Eddie. Eddie cheated on her throughout their marriage and she was very much aware. She’s mad because Eddie left her with someone he cheated on, not that he cheated. Brandi would’ve gladly get back with Eddie if LeAnn were just some fling that he eventually kicked to the curb.

      • Lady D says:

        He did not leave. He was tossed out on his useless ass.

      • Jambalya says:

        You’ve got your facts all wrong. Firstly, she blames Eddie and only Eddie. Secondly, no, she did NOT know he was cheating througout, she ONLY found out AFTER she left Eddie. She had absolutely no idea at all until Leann came out. She has said this herself so I don’t know where she got this ‘she was aware all along’ bs. She was not. After they split, her and Eddie sat down and she asked him how long he had been cheating on her for, and THATS when she found out it was basically from the start of their marriage. She had absolutely NO idea, whatsoever until AFTER. I really wish people would get their facts straight instead of outright lying about Brandi and the facts on here.

      • KJ says:

        Hm, I think you guys might be missing some facts in your assessments, and given that Brandi’s narrative has been controlled primarily by Brandi, I can’t say that I blame you. Long story short, a good friend of mine used to be friends with Brandi (I say used to because they had some sort of falling out and my friend moved from the west coast to the east shortly after, they didn’t keep in touch) and yes, Brandi did know.

        Brandi would not be as sympathetic of a character in the media if people knew that she regularly invited women into their bed for Eddie and actively turned a blind eye to any extramarital shenanigans he was up to so she could continue enjoying the perks of being married to him. Eddie’s not the most wealthy or in demand actor, clearly, but he wasn’t destitute either. Brandi recently admitted that she “made out with girls” for Eddie’s pleasure, but claims they would go home and have sex afterward. She failed to mention that she would usually bring her female make out buddies home with her.

        If the whole story was out there, Brandi wouldn’t be considered such a martyr for scorned women. Not to mention that there was overlap between Brandi and another of Eddie’s previous girlfriends, who Brandi was fully aware he was still seeing. Eddie had “broken up” with this girl but they were still having sex and going out together when he started seeing Brandi. How you get them is how you lose them and that applies to Brandi just as much as it does to LeAnn.

    • Theskinny says:

      I’m sure KJ (aka Leann) that if any of that were true these women would be coming forward. It also states in the divorce papers that she kicked HIM out. If she was okay with his cheating, I doubt she would have kicked him to the curb leaving herself and her children homeless.
      Nice try..keep it moving.

      • Jayna says:

        @KJ, personally, I wouldn’t be surprised that she’s had threesomes with him and probably have suspected it. I don’t really care. That’s their marriage. I find it slimy and doesn’t bode well for a marriage, but it was their decision if true, none of my business. Look how well Demi and Ashton doing that turned out.

        As far as her being in her early twenties screwing and dating a guy that had broken up with his ex but still saw casually, how is that a big deal? He was broken up and he and Brandi weren’t monogamous yet in the early stages. That can’t be compared to screwing a married man of ten years with children. Sorry. Nice try. You are really grasping at straws. Late teens/young twenties are wild dating times for many. I’m sure in many single people’s younger dating days there over overlaps in dating. It hurts if your boyfriend of a year cheated. But it wasn’t your husband or longtime live-in partner like that Heidi chick married to Justin what’s hisname.

      • No Way says:

        Apparently the women and threesome stories are in the book. She kind of justifies it by saying she would do anything to keep her marriage and husband interested. Sad really, and if true makes you think she probably knew about his affairs, but deluded herself into thinking it wasn’t that bad until Leann and it punched her in the face.

        I find this sad for her kids. She’s deluded herself into thinking her kids will never hear about the stuff in the book.

        The fact that she used Eddie’s card for the surgery is one of the funniest things I have ever heard of, but not if she was my mother and I was a 9 year old boy.

      • Sapphire says:

        Shocking…not. How is what ever they did in their marriage relevant to their break-up when Brandi threw him out. I don’t tend to get all judgey about what people do behind closed doorss. Then againLR and her buddy Lizperformed for their favorite pap while Eddiot took pics. And as far as dating pre-marriage when he was still seeing another woman, that’s not earthshaking. Whatever I think about the PR, campaign, this is a snooze.

      • MoxyLady007 says:

        They are all consenting adults. A threesome in no way has anything to do with being cheated on. If done correctly a threesome is about a loving partner engaging in something to satisfy their partner and possibly their own kinks. There is nothing wrong with that. In fact, beung open and accepting of eachothers sexual needs usually leads to a stronger more trusting relationship.
        In this instance Eddie is just a selfish asshole.

  18. la chica says:

    I do agree that Leann’s passive-aggressive taunting was tasteless. However, Brandi needs to realize that Eddie must have approved of it. And Leann needs to remember that what goes around comes around…

    • Rita says:

      I’ve no doubt Eddie encouraged it all including the use of the children to hurt Brandi. Eddie could have stopped this at anytime because he owns LeAnn. His encouragement of LeAnn’s disgusting behavior has cost him his career and will cost him the affection of his children.

      • candigirl says:

        This is one of the most insightful things said about the situation. Do you notice how Eddie’s “career” *insert finger quotes* has dimmed and this feud has ratcheted up? It seems to me that manipulating this drama and encouraging it IS Eddie’s new career. Creepy.

    • KJ says:

      Yep, whether implicitly or explicitly, he definitely encourages her taunting. I mean, let’s be real, if LeAnn would alter her body drastically and permanently, developing a taste for laxatives in the process, to please Eddie, I’m POSITIVE she would call back her minions and tone down the Twitter meltdowns if Eddie really wanted her to. But Eddie probably gets off on it. He loves the idea of women fighting over him.

      I find the whole thing to be such a gross yet fascinating case study into human relationships. These people are all a mess and they’re a mess because they conflate their love of love with their love of money, fame, lust, and attention.

    • claire says:

      Bringing your new sidepiece to the kids’ soccer games and making out with her in front of the kids/Brandi was a clear indicator that Eddie is more cruel than just your typical cheater.

      • la chica says:

        I agree. Eddie’s role in all of this does not get enough attention IMO. It’s always Brandi vs Leann. And Leann seems to be too pathetic to realize that Eddie seems to hate his ex more than he loves her!!

      • jilly says:

        Eddie’s love for Brandi has turned to complete hate IMHO. He sicked his new piece on his ex, and she gladly complied because she is completely dickmatized. That is the real story of this trio. Eddie stayed quiet in the background while Leann and her followers went after Brandi relentlessly. I do not understand that kind of hate against someone that you used to love, whom you BEGGED to stay with you after she discovered your infidelity. This is all about Eddie’s huge ego. And Leann is too foolish to see it.

      • Christin says:

        I agree that Eddie is the common factor, and I would not be surprised if he doesn’t still love Brandi (though he’s a proven cheater who will probably always like a challenge). Based on photographs of each couple, I think he looks much more content, happier, etc., with Brandi. Of course, those were the days when he had his cake and could eat it, too. :)

    • mln76 says:

      Single lady in the big city here its much more common for a married man to present himself as single than a single woman to go after a married man. If your husband’s on line dating sites, going out without his wedding ring and has a whole posse of friends that are willing to lie for him don’t blamed the poor woman who encounters him. She is not a homewrecker just another sap though not as big a sap as his wife

        @huh
        First off I am not now nor have I ever been sympathetic to LeeAnn so quit harping on that BS.
        Second pointing out that there are married men who behave like they are single in no way gives you an insight to my life so quit with the pathetic SATC analogies just because thats your only concept of city life. All I am saying is that a man is responsible for his own p*&%$ and if a married man goes out trolling for women and 9 women turn him down the 10th may be an idiot but the wife who takes him back is twice the idiot.

      • LAK says:

        @Huh dear,

        If you are going to insult people with TV characters, try and pick offensive ones. Charlotte and Carrie are great TV characters.

        It is a very well documented fact that married guys take their rings off and present as single guys. It happens all the time and all over the world.

        Min76 didn’t invent this and neither can she prevent it. She isn’t saying she goes after married guys so don’t understand what your beef is here.

        And if you have been posting on these LR threads longer, you’d know that Min76 isn’t a supporter of LeAnn or Brandi.

    • bettyrose says:

      Ugh. Men CAN control themselves. I’m not excusing women who deliberately pursue a married man, but if a man leaves his family, that HIS doing, not hers.

  20. Theskinny says:

    Numerous blogs have posted the horrible poster and the the taunts about her surgery that Leann’s minions have put out there. Leann has been known to LOL the posts or retweet them.

    The latest twitter drama is that Leann is accusing Brandi of lying to sell books. Brandi responded on twitter that SHE would be willing to take a lie detector test to prove who is lying. Now it’s getting good. You know Andy Cohen or someone will set up that lie detector for her to take. lol

    Speaking of liars, Leann posted pics of herself blowing gum bubbles and looking carefree. Then she cancels an event due to “flu”. The next morning she tweets “Ready for some pleasure.” Wow, she’s not even bothering to cover up her lies anymore. When I had the flu I was ready for some ibuprofen.

    The promotion of her book has been masterfull. Sometimes it’s over the top but it’s selling books and will no doubt be a spring-board other opportunities.

    As for our little “smirk-girl”, LeAnn, she felt entitled to taunt and bully for years the woman whose life she destroyed. LeAnn planted stories about having sex with Eddie, sent disgusting texts to Brandi, used Brandi’s children to cause Brandi pain, released private information about Brandi to complete strangers for publication, and encouraged her employees to bash Brandi.

    This books sheds the light of truth on everything we’ve thought about LeAnn. LeAnn, Eddie, and her song writer are realizing they are not entitled to deliberately cause harm to innocent mother without the consequences of Karma.

    Still, they haven’t learned to shut-up as LeAnn and Darrell Brown threaten the twitter world with bullying C&D letters and outright persecution.

    As LeAnn Rimes continues to pursue her vindictive nature, her life will continue to spiral into the abyss of depression.

  24. Annie says:

    Mistresses never regret a thing. I know women who’ve been mistresses and they are strangely pleased with themselves. They love that they could steal the attention of a married guy. Like a challenge won. Like they’re Helen of Troy eventhough each of them is a man’s biggest regret. They feel sexy and badass. Not one of them has regrets.

    A friend of mine talks about her affair like it’s something to be proud of. Big fat smiles and giggles. It pisses me off the way she brags about it. She brags. It’s been years and she’s not over the guy. They still talk, flirt and text every day almost. He gets jealous if she ha gs out with a guy and she makes him jealous by posting pics on FB. One time she sent him a picture of lingerie she bought and he was all “Model it for me”. I was so disgusted because she was loving it eventhough he is a slimeball and she nearly helped ruin his marriage. And they still talk! She’s always expecting me to tell her things like “Wow lol you’re soooo badass” but I never hide my disgust because so many women in my family have been cheated on and it really destroys families. I just make ugh faces and tell her that the more she is still hung up on that loser the less chance she has at finding real love because she’s waiting for him and he doesn’t take her seriously. Also, karma exists.

    And a cousin of mine had an affair too with a married guy and got pregnant. Unlike my friend, she got something valuable to her so of course she has less regrets. She loves her son but again, she will brag about her affair like it’s the biggest acomplishment, showing the guy’s picture to everyone “He’s handsome right??” which he is. Oh and she goes on vacations with him and their son like they’re a happy family. All our aunts are like “Honey this is not right” and she’s all “This is not open for discussion!”.

    Seeing both sides of the same story and how each woman reacts is what makes me so harsh when judging affairs. I’ve seen the wives go on antidepressants like Brandi, and just basically be miserable because they truly loved these men, whereas the mistresses never really love these guys, they just want to feel validated and desired and badass. A-holes.

    I feel like they want to screw over the women who have everything like a husband, children and a house because they have never been offered more than empty sex.

    • Theskinny says:

      Well I hope they enjoy that moment of ill gotten glory. I’ve seen the same women age without a family or a companion because they spent valuable years destroying these things for other people. Karma does indeed come.

      • Annie says:

        I completely agree. Those women never break the cycle of empty, meaningless experiences and they end up alone. LeAnne is the rare case when the man actually married the mistress. The rest can’t except the same. But LeAnne cannot expect loyalty.

        My friend told me she had her eyes on another married guy from work. I was so annoyed, and snapped. I was like, ENOUGH with this idiocy. There’s plenty of single guys out there, why do you have to go looking for trouble? What bitter side of your heart entertains the idea of hurting a family just because you’re all alone in the world. Mind you, this guy wasn’t even pursuing her. She thought of coming on to him first. I told her that if she started something with this guy I would stop being her friend. Thankfully she calmed down and realized that one thing is to fall for a married guy at the dumbass age of 18 than at 28. But I wouldn’t put it past her to have at least one more affair. I would not be her friend anymore if she did.

        Oh! And ANOTHER cousin of mine had an affair with her ex, who was married and had a baby. My cousin, again, was very pleased with herself. Until the girl found out and texted her a picture of their newborn baby girl. It said “This is who waits for him at home while he is with you, are you sure you still want him?” I felt so bad and my cousin was more worried about getting beat up or everyone finding out what she did than regretting being with this guy because “he was very hot”.

    • Alana Fajina says:

      Very, VERY well said Annie. It’s nice to hear from someone who’s seen both angles and still has the sense about her to stick up for her beliefs and for what is right. Regardless of how I/we feel about either of these women, the fact of the matter is that Eddie & Leann were married, took vows and yet still disrespected the people they promised to love the most all for the sake of flesh. Quite frankly, Brandi may have a big mouth but I’d take that any day over a wandering and possibly diseased dong. Those two just disgust me.

  25. Hoya_chick says:

    Brandi looks so pretty in the header photo! Stunning. I am a Brandi fan. Unabashedly. She is a bit trashy at times and crass but I’d take that any day over that cray cray Rimes. This is the first interview I’ve read in a while where Brandi has gotten her point across without the f word or taunting Rimes. It’s actually very effective. She should stick to that. I hope her book does really well.

    For the people who don’t like her, why are you not only reading stories but commenting on her? I don’t get it.

    The book is already driving Rimes crazy she is tweeting that it’s all lies and how much her mother in law LovEs her for bringing so much joy into her son’s life. She’s kidding right? lol. So transparent. I find it super interesting that she told her twitter followers about Brandi’s surgery (lol you probably ended up paying for it you idiot), that vag pushed out the ‘bonus boys’ you claim to so desperately love. No matter how much you try, you can’t erase her or shame her. You and your husband are cheaters and liars and I’m glad the world is seeing what a spiteful mean spirited person you were to Brandi after you had a hand in destroying her family.

        I mean think now people like John Hamm, Hugh Jackman, AnnE Hathaway, or Jessica Chapstain can live their lives and not have their personal lives being tabloid fauder (sp?). They are back in control of the media because the Kardashians, RH and other random dlisters are desperate for attention and will sell any story about themselves they can.

However, the recent excerpts from thIs book have totally turned me off on this woman and made me realize they are ALL trash. The recent quote about joking about rape, rape jokes can be funny, and no sometimes means yes has put the fork in it for me. I’m done, I’m out, I can’t deal with this level of vulgarity.

  29. Jayna says:

    She used to come off as the likable one. In one week she has said that no one would F’k LeAnn, LeAnn is a tramp, told her to F off, etc. This is added onto her very ill-advised rape joke, her saying he was impotent, her vag rejuvination story. Going on the attack outside the book, just in off-the-cuff talking, as far as trashing LeAnn with barbs makes her look like she is always slagging on LeAnn, which unfortunately takes away the credibility that LeAnn is the aggressor. Brandi has done herself no favors, which is so silly, this was supposed to be a book on her side of the story, not let me embarrass Eddie in any way possible. So in every interview making fun of LeAnn with ugly remarks really takes away from the sympathy factor. I see so many remarks saying they are over her already and these by people that really can’t stand LeAnn or Eddie either. Brandi has everything on her side for this book and she has really made mistakes in promoting it.

    She always says her kids are first. She may think that, but some of what she has done is not putting them first. No one said she didn’t have a right to put out an honest story of this in Brandi style, but her behavior lately has lost a lot of sympathy and goodwill that was on her side. Sell those books, Brandi, but at what cost. You could sell them just as easily without such behavior.

    Eddie/LeAnn has a rep/source give a statement to E that they don’t think about Brandi or any of this and are just focusing on their marriage and Eddie being a good father. I guess LeAnn didn’t get the memo that was being released. LOL But what was LeAnn doing at the same time? She was on Twitter calling out the lies by Brandi, even address her twitter handle in the remark, all the same night she called in sick to the GMCLA with the flu and wakes up tweeting away. Stupid LeAnn. That remark to E was the smartest thing you two could be doing right now, not tweeting or firing back, so the baiting looks one-sided. But LeAnn is doing her own drinking and tweeting again.

    LeAnn hasn’t sung since the X Factor debacle. Cancelled twice. Interesting. She obviously is too obssessed with this right now to want to honor her committments (unlike what the response said) and she obviously is nervous about her talent now, never having had it questioned before. Remember, she was noticeably under the influence (maybe cough medicine LOL) the last GMCLA in 2012 I think it was.

    Both sides are so stupid. I always give Eddie credit. He stays shut up. And when he responds publically it is always usually not offensive for the most part. When he leaves LeAnn, he will throw all this in her face and say, you wouldn’t stay off twitter and helped keep it going. I’m over it. (When in reality he never stopped her and probably by that encouraged her. It’s will just be his reason to her for moving on to the next woman that he’s hot for, just like Eddie uses things about Brandi as his reason for cheating).

    Team Kids.

    • Zooyork says:

      I wish a mainstream, credible publication, like The New York Times, or Rolling Stone or something, would do an article about LeAnn Rime’s concert cancellations. The should include follow-up statistics, such as, wether or not people are refunded, or wether or not rescheduled concerts actually take place. Also, tracking how many ticketholders were unable to attend rescheduled concerts because they couldn’t get the time off work for that evening, etc.
      Basically the articule could serve as a warning regarding consumer value.

  30. paranormalgirl says:

    Eddie and LeAnn’s affair was an affair carried out in public and in the media. Brandi is carrying out her “revenge” in same arena. Psychologically it makes sense, but the kids are the ones who are collateral damage, and that sucks.

  31. mln76 says:

    No I don’t find her entertaining I find it interesting that she’s managed to wrangle her way into constant attention through a constant supply of sleaze. She’s a survivor (but so are cockroaches).

    • Hoya_chick says:

      Lol, since you don’t derive any entertainment from her or her story why do you keep reading and commenting on her? Seems crazy no?

      • mln76 says:

        Entertaining would imply I would purchase her book or watch her on TV or follow her on Twitter. I don’t. I posted here long before Brandi was ubiquitous on this site. I comment on stories on this site regardless of whether Brandi is a topic. I find the pack of people that go to bat for her to the end of lawsuits interesting.

      • Huh says:

        Indeed it is. As is her… interesting…redefinition of the words ‘imply’ and ‘entertaining.’

      • Relli says:

        @ hoya & Kizzy,

        I have tangled with M on this topic on a few occasions and honestly I just think she is really passionate about this story for some reason. She is usually a really insightful commenter with smart things to say but something about Brandi makes her (extra) stabby.

        I guess we all have our topics that make us that way….

      • Kizzy says:

        No problem Hoya. I share your sentiments. I just lost ‘interest’ in the last few words of the poster though. Trying to save face seems more important than making sense. My my! So much … passion (?) is ‘bred’ at the end of that post. I really hope that book does well because of this. In fact, I’m going to buy the damn book now!

    • Kizzy says:

      I’m entertained by her and I won’t buy her book or follow her on Twitter or whatever. Hoya_Chick’s not talking about posting on the site but posting on the ‘topic’ of Brandi – not other stories. I find it interesting that you find people who understand her ‘interesting’.

      • Hoya_chick says:

        Thank you Kizzy, she didn’t really answer my question. There is a difference huge between reading posts about Brandi, commenting on them and even replying to other people’s comments over and over again and just reading this site as a whole. There are plenty of other stories on this site. If you don’t like her why even bother comment on every single one of her post? The last post about her she was replying to just about every comment she didn’t agree with, and not in a nice way. At some point it’s like damn, don’t read the story of you have such a high level of disdain. I am not on twitter, I don’t have an account and think it’s pretty stupid. I do however from time to time check specific people’s pages because they are funny and crazy and I find it entertaining. I don’t plan on actually buying her book either but I wouldn’t mind reading it at some point. If people are so above it all and better than her ( and those who either like her or identify with her) why even bother?

      • mln76 says:

        Ok I will put it this way would you consider all the people who read and post about Tom Cruise and Scientology ‘Tom Cruise fans’ even if they comment and reply several times on every post concerning that scandal. If as most of them claim they won’t watch his movies etc they aren’t. They just find the situation interesting and want to share their opinions. In re ferece Brandi Granville I don’t agree with the claim in this article that she is entertaining person I do find the fact that 3 such disgusting individuals could air their dirty laundry in such a crazy way that its bred more crazy and caused grown ass women to form possd es an to ksine bully eachother to the point of lawsuit fascinating. I would read that book.

  32. Dee Cee says:

    Brandie took molding piles of sour vindictiveness Leann is tossing out.. the fakey presence of pal hood Leann and Ed want to promote; etc. and she is doing her all to make the mounting bad situation into a blessing by confronting her enemy, and turning the bad mouthing to frank and candid chat gold.. so she’s enterprising.. staying a step ahead of those dead beat.. boring bird brains.. earning her keep and paying her bills.. Leann should be grateful.. uh, maybe Leann is deliberately tossing some bad will Bandies way in continuing her blunders, foolish spats, accusations of lies to get Brandie motivated to fight back and leave her and Eddie alone? Oh my.. don’t tell Leann she’s a continual ‘topic interest’ benefit to the ex..

  33. Stephanie says:

    Brandi is so beautiful. I know many don’t agree, but I think she is gorgeous.

  34. evyn says:

    How come she isn’t whining about the other women he cheated with? Is it because they aren’t famous?

    • Lady D says:

      They are not attacking Brandi. They are not buying houses in B’s neighbourhood, they are not switching vehicles to copy B’s, they are not haunting her dr’s, they don’t copy every article of clothing or hairstyles, and they especially don’t taunt her cruelly about her children. They don’t show up unwanted at the kid’s school and force themselves on a captive audience. They don’t give interview after interview about unavoidable (as if) adultery. They don’t hire others to attack B. I could go on and on. Falcor has provided 4 years worth of harassment and cruelty, and shows a downright nasty vicious streak that is displayed everywhere when she isn’t busy being drunk, lying, or on the toilet.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Because they didn’t bully and stalk her and go after her sons to pretend they were the mothers. But they still sucked.

      • Jayna says:

        Which is why her book would be a bestseller and be interesting. Instead she spends her time in promoting this book taunting LeAnn, saying Fuck her, no one wants to fuck LeAnn, LeAnn is a tramp, etc, and all that does is make her look like she is a big part of the problem too and not sympathetic. Stupid and tacky move on someone’s part who is trying to use her book to show how she was bullied and harrassed in a progressive way as the wronged wife and how she grew from it. Then out comes on the tour, No one wants to Fuck LeAnn. LeAnn is a tramp. LOL Real smart, Brandi.

      • claire says:

        Agreed. I hope there is much more in there about the crazy stalking and bullying. That’s the craziest and most interesting part of this saga to me. Maybe someone who has read the whole thing can let us know?

    • TheTruthHurts says:

      Have you read the book yet? How do you know she doesn’t talk about Scheana? I’m sure she does. It’s the media who has probably chosen not to cover that.

  35. anti-icon says:

    I still like our gal Brandi. She’s turned lemons into lemonade. (And I’m a “victim” in the EXACT same marital betrayal as she….with much worse consequences.)

    I like this magazine interview very much. Maybe it’s the BOOK that should have been avoided.

  36. Shira says:

    OMG what heart!?
    What happened to you sucks, but you’re capitalizing from it in EVERY.POSSIBLE.WAY! Not to mention the fact that you’re no better than LeAnn, NOT GIVING IT A FUCKING REST.

  37. Louise says:

    Why keep fighting over this loser man? Seriously? He’s not all that, and imho a man with such a bad personality & traits is no longer attractive in my eyes. The fact he wasn’t bothering with her sons while they were still together?? Gone, history. I wouldn’t have waited for news of an affair! Brandi needs a backbone. She needs to ignore those two as much as possible, concentrate on her own happiness and find a good, loving man. Someone she can be happy with & maybe have more children if that’s what she wants. And if her new vag allows her! She seems very insecure also. But the best revenge, is living a good happy life! :) I would never, ever comment on them again, “no comment”, if asked. That would drive Meann crazy. She hates to be ignored ;) Not only that, she’s not worth commenting on neither is he. I do feel sorry for Brandi and yes leanna is an arsehole but we all knew that anyway.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      What woman who has been cheated on *doesn’t* feel insecure?????

    • LittleDeadGirl says:

      The fight isn’t really about Dean though. It’s a battle between the two women against one another. Leanne is batshit crazy and while I’m not fond of Brandi I think I’d have a hard time saying no comment when the other women was using my own kids against me. That’s a deep knife to stick in someone’s heart and expect them to walk away from it …

      … how many of us could honestly say we’d be fine with the woman that took our husband away was tweeting shit like “having a great time with your kids” … I’d go crazy

      • SouthernGal says:

        Brandi has shown great restraint because any other woman would have molly wopped Leann’s ass a long time ago. You can have the man but don’t f*ck with me about my kids. This is why LeAnn isn’t liked because she is a got damn coward. No one cares about the affair but the way she taunted her is downright wrong. If they want Brandi to shut up…LeAnn should STFU first. Now LeAnn is saying everything is a lie. Right!!! She forgets most of her bullsh*t is documented on Twitter and people that followed Brandi know the real truth.

        Who post pics of another woman’s kid on social media? Creates an Iphone cover with the kiddos pic? Or call another woman’s kids “her boys”. It is tacky and most of us need to get real and be honest….we wouldn’t tolerate it!!!

  38. Baylor says:

    Someone on here once said that LeAnn stalked Andrew Keegan the same way she stalked Brandi. Any stories you could tell us?

    Anyone know what Dean’s sister thinks of DB?

  39. Jennifer12 says:

    Brandi finally has a platform. For years, people ignored her when she said she was being stalked and harassed. All that was said was that it was too bad, but she should get over it. Imagine having your marriage (which your moron husband made a mockery of as it was) implode under the light of the women he’d cheated with and then having this mistress get to act like a third parent within weeks of all this happening. Imagine this person taking your kids on vacations and going to your kids’ soccer games and acting as though she’d replaced you and taunting you over twitter a few weeks after your whole life had turned upside down. Brandi’s error is being crude about it. She should be calm and factual (I know it’s hard because she’s the one who’s lived through stalking and misery) and just lay out all the facts- being stalked and bullied by a celebrity who had already exploded your life. If Leann had just lived things out quietly with Eddie and stayed out of the parenting end and not pushed herself incessantly into the wife/stepmom role immediately; if she’d been sensitive and courteous; if she hadn’t behaved as though she’d replaced the kid’s actual mother, she’d have been alright by now. Brandi has turned the tables on her, but she needs to get the facts out about the stalking and bullying. She also needs to speak about how the kids were used as pawns to hurt her (and them) while she was already hurting. I can’t imagine having my husband’s mistress take him away and then try to replace me in my kids’ lives and being perfectly Zen about it. I’m glad that Brandi is coming out of this with a job and a platform. And that Eddie and Leann ended up together is the greatest karma ever.

  40. I didn’t find Brandi sympathetic much at first – I don’t follow her on Real Housewives…when I started reading about the f*ckery LieAnn has unleashed through social meeting directed at Brandi, my opinion changed.

    I’ve preordered her book. I had a messed up marriage too – I left his cheating a$$ but it still hurt. Thankfully I was able to make a clean break and I’ve never seen him again.

  41. Christin says:

    Why has the new record album been promoted for about a year, and still isn’t released? I think someone mentioned the record company kept pushing the release date, perhaps in hopes the public image of the artist would improve. Now the album appears to be set for release in March or April, right on the heels of Brandi’s book release. I will be very surprised if the album does well at all, based on how the first two singles have fared.

    I’m not sure that LeAnn takes her music career very seriously anymore. It seems like she spends more energy on this overplayed relationship drama than genuinely trying to revive her career.

    It may not be pretty if the album tanks and Brandi’s book continues to sell at a good pace.

  42. truthful says:

    I remember hearing about Leanne’s twitter friends mocking and teasing Brandi about surgery but I always thought it was facial.

    horrid squinty eyed boozing bird

  43. skuddles says:

    I’m no Brandi fan but I do feel for her in some ways. She needs to keep in mind that the reason MeAnn has been so gloaty and nasty about snatching Brandi’s family is because she’s a desperately insecure person. MeAnn knows she’s not the love of limp Eddy’s life, and certainly not the best looking woman he’s been with (or will be with) and she knows he didn’t really want to leave his wife and kids for her – she totally got him by default (and by fanning $$$ in his face). So she sits around, every single day of her empty little life, dwelling on these things and worrying about the future. It makes her nuts. All she has really are her despicable attempts to rub salt in Brandi’s wounds. But she knows fully well a time will come when that same salt will come pouring down on her own wounds. Then watch the crazy come out! Bring on the straightjackets and padded walls.

  44. Asiyah says:

    Her outfit in that picture! She should dress like that more often.

  45. smh says:

    I like Brandi and I want to root for her but she is in no way a classy woman. I get that she wants a ”platform” but she is just oversharing. On a different note – was anyone else surprised that on Jay Leno she didn’t even know that the boot shaped country is Italy? Thought she modeled there or something…I mean I never thought she was that bright (and that’s ok, didn’t really expect her to know Chavez, Shakespeare or Petraeus) but good gawd.

  46. jl says:

    And one day her kids will read all this trash and probably hate their mother. I know I would be so embarrassed to know the world knows all about my disgusting parents private problems. Are they even thinking about their poor children?

  47. jessiesgirl says:

    Omg, there is a commentor at Radar I am convinced is Leann! I don’t comment there, but I do like reading their comments. There is one chick who has posted a reply to almost every pro-Brandi comment, which must add up to hours and hours of time spent on focusing on Brandi. Even going so far as telling people not to buy the book! Now that I found out Leann cancelled an appearance this weekend, the pieces just fit! Unfortunately, someone must have busted her and she deleted her username, but it was hilarious while it lasted.

    • Zooyork says:

      Ah s**t I would have loved to have read those comments!

    • Christin says:

      I saw the same thing. Someone did suggest the poster might be LeAnn. I’ve seen a similar thing happen on another site, and amazingly the username(s) will usually go silent when one or two call it out. Just one more reason this is so hilarious!

    • Deanne says:

      I think you are speaking of kind23 and yes, I wouldn’t disagree that it was LeAnn or her “sister” whose name I won’t mention, but is that most unfortunate handle of a real life person I’ve ever seen. She and LeAnn refer to themselves as sisters and she’s quite a piece of work. That handle countered every post that dared to reflect positively on Brandi in the slightest. They kept saying she was sleeping with a married producer of the show and calling her a hypocrite as well. Maybe it’s actually AM or her freak of a chef.

  48. NinaS says:

    There was definitely a reference to “beef curtains” on LR’s timeline, and her LOLing. I had no idea Brandi had vag surgery until I read LR’s timeline and the glee with which she divulged that information to the twittersphere and encouraged her minions who made fun of Brandi. LR is a vile, insecure, vicious and horrible person. She is obviously eaten up with jealousy over Brandi. She has become a laughing stock, not to mention the most hated woman in America.

  49. Sunlily says:

    She writes in her memoir: “Six years after I moved to Europe, I came back to Los Angeles to shoot a Coors Light commercial and ended up in an obnoxious nightclub called Grandville on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. Across the bar, I spotted an insanely attractive Cuban man who just couldn’t keep his eyes off me, and I couldn’t keep my eyes off him either. It was love at first sight – or perhaps, lust. Yes, we slept together that first night. I would never endorse sleeping with someone you just met, because half of the fun is the challenge. But, man, was it f**king hot! I used to joke that he “raped” me. Rape jokes are never funny, except when they are. I was saying, “No,no,no,” the entire time, but we all know that despite the adage, sometimes no does mean yes.”

    F*ck her.

  50. Peanut says:

    I feel for Brandi. I too had a cheating husband, i found out afterwards about multiple women and during my pregnancy with our daighter. It is truly horrible to go thru.

    However, that “rape” story/excerpt is disgusting and makes me think a lot less of Brandi overall. Just completely ignorant and gross.

  51. Janet says:

    I didn’t even know what the Glanville-Ciprian-Rimes mess was all about until I read through this thread. But after reading through it all my take is this:

    Glanville — needs to tone down the rhetoric. She made her point already.

    Ciprian — another cheating jerk who wants to have his cake and eat it too.

    Rimes — an evil, sociopathic bitch who needs to keep her dumb f*cking mouth shut. She doesn’t give a damn about those kids except as she can use them as a weapon to hit Glanville over the head with.

  52. LeeLoo says:

    If Brandi stays true to her word that she will be done talking about this situation after this book tour is over then I don’t see the problem. This book sounds like some of it was written in bad taste but it sounds 100% honest. I agree that she should be focusing on being a good mother to her kids but I also think if this book and book tour are the catharsis Brandi needs to move forward than she needs to do so. Plus, I can’t stand MeAnn either so I am happy for any opportunity for her to be embarrassed. I just hope that Brandi is finally able to make peace with this situation and will have the money to do so. She seems like she’s been through enough. I also hope she finds herself a nice man who will treat her better than Eddie probably ever did.

    One thing that though is that I find it very unlikely that LR and Eddie will ever break up. Eddie won’t want to leave her because she does a good job feeding his ego and has a decent bank account that I doubt will run dry anytime soon and LeAnn won’t dump him the way Brandi did when it was discovered he was cheating. Her self-esteem is so low she would merely turn a blind eye to i and ignore it. I just LeAnn is able to keep herself together for the sake of the two young boys involved and isn’t setting a bad example and I hope Brandi is able to put her bitterness behind her.

    • Rita says:

      I think Brandi will put all this behind her once the book is released. She’s taken a terrible situation and found a way to make a life for herself and her children. I’m sure she’s sick of LeAnn and has moved beyond any emotional attachment to that pig she was married to. Brandi’s success will continue to drive LeAnn “Batshit” so it will be LeAnn poking at Brandi, if there is any more crap in the future.

      As for LeAnn and Eddie, they are stuck in the tar sands of celebrity extinction which means before long they will be little more than stinky sediment.

  53. Zooyork says:

    Brandi looks beautiful in the first pic.

  54. Baylor says:

    Also, does anyone know if Eddie’s parents still keep in touch/interact with Brandi? I know Brandi says she was close to her ex-MIL. I know they were intially anti-Leann. However, I also know she stated that they ignored her parents once and Leann sure likes to make it seem like she is oh so close to her inlaws now. Anyone know the scoop on that?

    Also, Candance has said that the Sherement family never liked LeAnn. Wonder if Leann knew that and that is also the reason she gushes about how perfect THIS pair of in-laws are.

  55. Nonny says:

    I don’t understand how leanne can continually post pictures and school names and soccer games dates and times without getting a cease and desist order from brandi? I tell you what, if anyone put MY kids in the line of paparazzi fire like that, she better hide!

  56. Lizzie K says:

    I don’t like all the over-sharing Brandi is doing, and I tend to doubt her kids will thank her for the crude and personal details she is sharing about their father. Almost all kids love and want BOTH parents, and it hurts a child to see their parents at war. These kids had less choice in this horrible mess than any of the adults involved, and nobody seems to be putting them first.

    I do feel sympathy for Brandi, in that I think she is really in a vile situation. It must be dreadful to see her children being “bonus mommed” by LeAnn Rimes, for whom I have ZERO sympathy or goodwill. LeAnn is a mean, spiteful and crazy woman who has had all of the power in this situation until she made Brandi so famous that a TV show and book deal became possible. Now Brandi finally has a chance to hit back, and if there were no kids in the mix, I would be reveling in the karmic backlash about to swamp LeAnn and that sad excuse for a man Eddie Cibrian. Since there are kids, who can’t escape the situation, I wish Brandi could have and would have kept a lid on a lot of this stuff. Write the book after the kids are grown, but not while they are little and still in LeAnn’s clutches.

    Just my two cents.

  57. Christin says:

    Brandi mentions she did not consider Eddie a hands-on father at the time of the split (that she and the nanny were primarily raising the kids). Is Eddie all that involved now? Hopefully those boys are telling Brandi whether they spend much time with him during his part of the custody arrangement, or if “bonus mom” is primary caregiver.

  58. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    SUCH a delight to watch Leann finally get hers. As the Italians say “revenge is best served up cold.”
    Brandi waited long enough for Leann to bury herself with her idiocy. Now was the perfect time for Brandi to have her say.
    karma is a beautiful thing to watch.
    Brandi, you go girl.

  59. JEL says:

    What does LeeAnn do these days ? Just living off of her child star $$$ ? I don’t get why the media loves her so ?

  60. Greenieweenie says:

    I can’t say I blame Brandi. I would never, ever do what she’s doing, but that’s because I don’t do girl shit. I’m like half male…got five brothers and just never picked up this kind of behavior. She obviously plays the girl shit–no surprise given how she looks/dresses–but at the end of the day, Leanne comes off as an asshole. So while I would go about it differently, I can’t blame Brandi for employing the tools she knows how to use. I would def. be furious in her situation.

  61. good_as_gold says:

    I think part of the reason some women love Brandi is because they identify with the ‘scorned, cheated on woman’ aspect. Which is fair enough. The other part, is the glee in which people find over-turning of karma onto eddie and le-anne.

  62. Apsutter says:

    Can’t wait for this book tomorrow! Can we please retire the phrase “my truth?!” It’s such a bullshit term

  63. anneesezz says:

    The cheaters never showed remorse and LeAnne was out there trying act like she was the victim. What the what? I don’t like the idea of airing ones dirty laundry, but a girls gotta eat, right? So I am definitely Team Brandi for life. Hope she finds herself a nice rich guy who likes her new vajajay!

  64. Gemini08 says:

    As obnoxious as she can sometimes come across I like Brandi. She seems to be an open and honest person.

  65. Madriani's Girl says:

    For the love of God, can’t she just SHUT UP?????

  66. Dirty Martini says:

    I’m so sick of BG that I’m practically Team Leann.

    Seriously, when women who are jilted by their man fixate on the other woman it infuriates me.

    The man made the commitmeent to you. The man. He’s the one that broke his word.

    Fixate ont he other woman makes it sound like you accept men can’t help themselves, give them a pass and hold women to a higher standard of fidelity.

    Leann Rimes never made a commitment to you BG. She didn’t marry you. She owed you nothing I’m afraid.

    Eddie is a different story.

  67. Helvetica says:

    Notice that Eddie never says anything.

    I can totally appreciate Brandi being heartbroken but the best revenge at this point would be living well & never speaking about about these fools again.

    LeAnn shows he character by all the things she says. I hate to say it but she should have taken a page from the book of Angelina Jolie: say nothing. But she doesn’t understand this. She keeps going on and on and on about it.

    No man is worth any of the trouble these two women go on about.

    I imagine LeANn to be a very insecure person and this situation probably exacerbates it.
