LeAnn Rimes, drama queen: ‘We don’t like drama & we don’t want to be part of it’

I really think these photos – of LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian doing a joint interview on Extra – are going to become my new go-to photos for LeAnn. She was just making the weirdest expressions throughout the appearance. Good times. As for that Chelsea Handler interview which I partially covered yesterday – as it turns out, LeAnn wasn’t wearing underwear. She basically said that to Chelsea. Chelsea asked LeAnn about tweeting Brandi and LeAnn said, “She tweets a lot to herself. And I just kind of sometimes reply when there’s a ton of lies always spread about me. I just have to spurt it out.” LeAnn also said that she and Brandi “don’t speak” and “When everything you do or don’t do becomes a tabloid story how can you actually co parent? How do you speak to someone?” And of course there’s more:

How times have changed! Unlike in years past, LeAnn Rimes rarely responds to husband Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville via Twitter. Speaking to Us Weekly while promoting her new album Spitfire, the 30-year-old country music superstar explains how she’s learned to ignore the 40-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s online antics.

“The thing is, Eddie and I are very proud of the home and family that we have. We don’t like drama, and we don’t want to be part of it,” says the two-time Grammy winner. “We can’t control the people around us, but we can control we handle drama, and we’ve made a very peaceful life for ourselves and I’m very happy with that. There’s a lot of drama on the outside and we’ve finally learned how to not let it in.”

Rimes, who recently moved into a new house with the Hot in Cleveland guest star, adds that they “love to just stay in and be away from it all.” Though Glanville often criticizes her sons’ “bonus mom” in interviews, Rimes has grown tired of letting their family drama play out in the press.

“I definitely have to bite my tongue a lot of the time,” the Mississippi-born, Texas-raised star admits. “There’s a fine line because I don’t want to be run over and I do stand up for myself. But I also don’t want to feed into the drama. I did say, ‘I do music, not drama.” I don’t need drama to have a career. And so I plan on, as much as possible, to not feed into it. Like I said, there will be moments I don’t hold back from standing up for myself.”

Glanville has often complained about co-parenting sons Jake, 10, and Mason, 6, with Cibrian and Rimes, a problem that’s been exacerbated by publicly bashing her ex and his new wife. “It’s really hard to communicate when you’re afraid that someone is going to take something, twist it and use it in the press,” Rimes tells Us. “There’s a reason why I don’t — we don’t — speak right now. And I hope that things like someone tweeting about not being able to get ahold of their kids will subside at some point and not be used as drama.”

“I think if our lives were not played out so publicly that way, then we would be able to communicate better,” Rimes adds. “But, at this moment, that’s not [the case].”

The “Borrowed” singer tells Us she would rather focus on her music than on feuding with the Drinking and Tweeting author. “It’s time for the conversation to change,” Rimes says. “I do music. I don’t blow up drama for the sake of a career.”

[From Us Weekly]

For the love of God. Does she know how ridiculous she sounds? I will admit that I think Brandi Glanville “starts” some of this stuff, but I really believe that – let’s say – 75% of the time it’s just LeAnn being a drama queen, starting her own “war” and being really ridiculous. I mean, let’s take an example from this past weekend – Brandi tweeted a few cute photos of the birthday party she threw for one of her sons. She didn’t direct the tweets to anyone, there was no shade, it was just “hey, this is my son’s birthday cake” etc. LeAnn then went completely overboard trying to “one-up” Brandi by tweeting about the cake she got for Mason and going on and on (complete with photos and Vine videos) about the birthday celebrations SHE hosted. What’s so funny to me is that Brandi has to expend so little energy to get under LeAnn’s skin, and it feels like LeAnn spends 24 hours a day, 7 days a week trying to figure out how to “respond”. LeAnn is a vortex of narcissism and self-perpetuating drama.

    If you don’t like drama, then why don’t you stop courting it with your behavior?

    Man, whatever this one is smoking, I want some.

    • StormsMama says:

      Doesn’t like drama…which is why she’s talking about it all to US Weekly!


    • Poink517 says:

      I’d like some of that, too. Could use an escape from reality ;)

    • gg says:

      She only dislikes the drama when she hasn’t created it. It’s her daily sustenance.

      Here’s a tip MeAnn: Get off twitter. Yesterday. You might be a little bored at first but like any addiction, you’ll find something else to do.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      I’ll smoke it with you! ♥

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Let’s all smoke a fatty and scream BITCH PLEASE in unison!

      @GG-seriously. Twitter=Dramz

    • Little Lulu says:

      How else would she be able to have her pic taken if she wasn’t talking about Brandi???? Why would any rag mag want to hear from her if she wasn’t saying something about Brandi….I haven’t seen any articles about how her album is doing, or anything connected to any of her “talent” she thinks she has…or not since she ruined poor little Carley chances of winning X Factor that Leann totally ruined by taking over the song, and screwing it up royally! Leann has ruined poor Eddie’s chances of ever being capable of having a show, who’d hire him with her hanging on him like a slug chewing down a plant. I bet the husband she left for Eddie is still laughing and is beyond happy that Eddie came along and took her off his hands, and he got a nice payout to be rid of her. Leann needs some mental help, but it doesn’t appear like she has anyone in her life willing to give up their “payday” to make her get some help. She dumped her parents, and Eddie isn’t going to give up his nice little set up, no matter how crazy she gets or acts.

    • teehee says:

      ‘only dislikes the kind she didnt create’ — antoher way of putting it is that she doesnt see that she is responsible for ALL the drama in her life. She thinks its all everyone elses fault and she is the oh so poor victim of everyones hate. She doesnt comprehend that she sustains it all.

  2. Kaye says:

    OMG that header picture. I spit orange juice all over my keyboard.

  3. marie says:

    pot, kettle.. one doesn’t exist without the other in this scenario, they feed off each other.

    • Little Lulu says:

      I disagree with you completely, for the most part, Brandi has said some nice things about Leann….but I’ve yet to hear ONE kind word about Brandi from Leann. Those boys belong to Brandi and Eddie, and she has no business interfering and throwing her worthless two cents in on anything Brandi does with her kids. Brandi didn’t say one word about LR in her tweet, and since those are her kids, she has a right to tweet about them. Leann is just Eddie’s sugar mama who pays his bills, and allows him to live a nice lifestyle, and for Leann to think she’s anything more than that, just proves how foolish she is.

    • Dirty Martini says:

      completely AGREE. They love the drama they create on behalf of each other. These two — LeeAnn and Brandi — are more of a couple than either was or ever will be with that loser EC.

      ROFLMAO I think they are hot. For each oher. God knows they think more about the other one than any one person in their lives otherwise–be it Eddie, one of those precious boys, or anyone else

      For the life of me, I don’t get how any intelligent person can choose one of these dimwits over the other when it comes down to being contributing members of society.

      LeeAnn can sing…she has a wonderful voice….but she has no other redeeming qualities.

      Brandi has a nice new VJ. We’ve all heard about it…..good for..her?


      Wasn’t good enough for Gerald Butler to remember it.

    Doesn’t like drama? She creates it constantly. If she didn’t, she wouldn’t have any life.

    (that was the sound of my head exploding.)
    Id like to formally nominate her for the Branson trip to space with Vanilla lite.

    “…dont blow up drama for the sake of my career.” ??? what career? a CD at walmart?
    please buy this woman a puppy or teach her to macrame, just giver her something else to do.

    had to add this-http://www.glamour.com/entertainment/blogs/obsessed/2013/06/hey-leann-rimes-what-the-heck.html

  9. BeesKness says:

    I’ve always found that people who say that they are above drama or that they don’t participate in drama to be the biggest sh!t stirrers around. LeAnn would only prove she is above drama by getting the heck off twitter!!

  10. brin says:

    Oh come on, this is “her truth” (a/k/a another lie).

    “Leann is a vortex of narcissism and self-perpetuating drama”. Spot on, K.!

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      The line about her learning to ignore Brandi on twitter was pure gold. How stupid does she think we are?!? Yes Leann. Good for year. After years of bullying stalking and harassing Brandi you have finally learned to ignore her “taunts” about not being able to get a hold of her children. You are so strong and brave.
      Crazy crazy bitch.

  11. lem says:

    you don’t get to claim that you don’t need the “drama” to have a career when your most recent album (in friggin’ YEARS) focuses entirely ON THE DRAMA! how does she not understand that her writing an entire album about the affair and all that has resulted from it is in fact engaging in all that drama more than Brandi ever has? you don’t get to write a song like “borrowed” and then claim that you don’t engage in the drama and are somehow above Brandi’s career path. she’s so fucking delusional and hypocritical that it’s not even funny.

  12. Elle says:

    Didn’t Brandi confirm there was only one party and she, Eddie, and Leann were all present?

    I’m hoping that this interview means maybe Leann is finally learning her role in this situation. I imagine it will be a slow process considering the hole she has dug for herself but I hope this means she’s trying.

  13. Micki says:

    …“I definitely have to bite my tongue a lot of the time,” …

    Really? When? Do TELL please

    • Relli says:

      That was my reaction too! Also I love how the Crud is mentioned as “guest star of Hot in Cleveland,” thats such a bad intro.

      • Cirque28 says:

        That’s my favorite part!

        “…recently moved into a new house with the Hot in Cleveland guest star.” The press doesn’t know how to identify Ediot because they can’t say Academy Award nominee or acclaimed character actor or, really, any job at all.

        Even Larry Fortensky was “the construction worker,” but Ediot is rapidly turning into “the guy who carries LeAnn Rimes’ purse and can otherwise be found on the couch watching his stories, drinking beer, and reminiscing about the career he used to have.”

    • Poink517 says:

      She might have to bite her tongue, but she certainly doesn’t ever do it.

  14. lucy2 says:

    Oh good, another crazy laughing/braying photo.

    This idiot’s whole life is about drama, of the junior high variety. Grow the f up already.

  15. I.want.shoes says:

    Good god, that face!

  16. Peanut says:

    She just has absolutely no capability for self-reflection. At all. Ever.

  17. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    These two are so ridiculous together, it’s stopped being funny, it’s just sad.

  18. nik says:

    I think the audience should get an award for “best side eye” ” over it” and “ugh” their expressions say it all!

  19. grabbyhands says:

    Every time she tells a great, whopping lie like this, somewhere a puppy falls down dead.

  20. Ag says:

    I’m pretty sure there’s medication for this type of delusion.

  21. Jayna says:

    Well, Brandi isn’t Saint Brandi and she does stuff every so often or maybe even the people that troll LeAnn’s twitter really posting gross stuff even on stuff they have no business doing that I guess LeAnn wants to respond to and doesn’t. There’s always a little truth to every side, but LeAnn’s side is only a little truth and Brandi’s side the most truth.

    But now she is Saint LeAnn, the one above it all. LOL. LeAnn refuses to believe she causes drama by posting a million bonus mom retweets by others and too many photos of the kids and their every activity together. LeAnn believes she doesn’t cause drama and that’s why nothing changes. And she has hubby backing her up all the way with it. Yet, Eddie says nothing and even said in that interview he lets it roll off his back and knows the truth and doesn’t respond. Too bad LeAnn doesn’t get off living to prove to the world she is a mother and as important as Brandi and making sure to document and tweet everything she can to prove it.

    • needmeds says:

      Eddie knows the truth- it’s written all over his face. This quote- “We don’t like drama, and we don’t want to be part of it” and this- “We can’t control the people around us…” probably came from Eddie and his latest girlfriend.

    • Little Lulu says:

      The really sad part about this is those young boys. I was a single mother with two sons, and this “bonus mom” just annoys me to no end. Until you make friends with the mother of those kids, and show them respect as their mom, then you are making things really hard on everyone…the dad, the kids, and the real mom. If she’d try to get along with Brandi, except she’s to jealous of her to be friends with her, even though Brandi doesn’t want Eddie anymore, Brandi would welcome having a stepmom who took good care of her children and wouldn’t mind most of those annoying things that Meann does. Meann needs to learn how to respect the boys real mom, but since Meann doesn’t respect her own mother, I don’t see that ever happening.

  22. teekay says:

    She’s trying to dig up drama by passive aggressively throwing shade on Brandi’s career. Leann, when will you figure out that most people like Brandi and pretty much 5 people like you, 4 of whom you pay, and 1 who you keep locked up in your crazy-dungeon.

  23. Jayna says:

    I have to say, I really like that outfit for the summer and blue is my color. Does anyone know the label?

  24. Elisabeth says:

    Jodi Arias thinks Leann is crazy

  25. Madriani's Girl says:

    I watched this at the gym last night with the sounds turned off. She is so overly-animated and makes the most outrageous faces. She tries WAY too hard and this opening her mouth wide while throwing back her head crap is fake as hell. While she was singing they would cut to him and he really did have a “Please tell me I look serious and interested” look on his face. Their body language is all wrong. She comes off a clingy and desperate to prove everthing is great between them and he comes off as standoffish to her as if he wants to keep air between them.

    • candigirl says:

      ITA, people have been mentioning his body language a lot in recent posts, “he’s so over her,” etc. I have to agree. Eddie deliberately stands away from her with a sarcastic pained look, and she is desperately clinging. The photos from Toronto and his son’s bday were even more telling, he was several feet away, ignoring her, always texting.
      My guess, he is doing this for the mistress’s benefit: “I have to do these public appearances honey, it’s just business, you’re the only one that matters” (the tattoo that LR has and the excuse he gave to the last mistress, Scheana.)

    • Little Lulu says:

      I bet he hates country music, too! I just don’t see him as the type to give one hoot about country music, and turns if off everytime she’s not around.

  26. Beep says:

    “Rimes, who recently moved into a new house with the Hot in Cleveland guest star…”

    HA! Eddie has been reduced to being known as a guest star on a show that nobody watches on a basic cable network.

    • Little Lulu says:

      Eddie is on Hot in Cleveland??? Or, are they both on the show? I can’t imagine her letting him get that far away from her to do a show. Hot in Cleveland must let anyone be on the show, wasn’t Heather from the Housewives just on the show?? LOL

  27. Shelby says:

    Oh goodness, those facial expressions!

  28. needmeds says:

    Desperation + delusion = Leann

  29. OrangeOprah says:

    The faces of the audience was priceless.

  30. Tessa says:

    That there my friends is what Botox does to your face.

    • Joanna says:

      oh, no I disagree. i do not look like that with botox. she has either has a) too much or b) something else going on.

      • silver says:

        my theory is that Leann started to try to morph her face, body & style into some jacked-up, cheaper version of Brandi after she heard Eddie making fun of her (Leann’s) looks. when Eddie was still trying to win Brandi back, he used to call her & sweet talk her, even tho he was banging Leann at the time. Brandi recorded one of these calls, during which he told her that he doesn’t love Leann, that he doesn’t find her attractive, that she was just a momentary lapse in judgement & a bump in the road. Brandi then mailed that tape to Leann, & I guess something inside her cracked after she heard it.

    • Girlygirl says:

      Botox gets rid of the lines. It is when you start messing around with fillers and trying to change what god gave you…that is when things look off.

      The good lord gave this girl a cute face but she is trying to morph it into something else. If she would just accept what she has and accent her best features, she could be pretty on the outside. Now her inside needs a full body make over and years of therapy!

  31. Michael says:

    I hate this homewrecking nutsack so much. It’s always the drama queens that swear they hate drama & will do anything to stay away from it. Stealing married men IS drama ya douche.

    • Madriani's Girl says:

      Homewrecking nutsack. That right there is sheer poetry. LMFAO!

    • Emily C. says:

      You can’t “steal” men. They are not objects. Eddie made his own decisions and wrecked his own home, and Leann was far from the only woman he was cheating with.

      Leann did wreck *her* home when she cheated on her husband.

      • Iyanla says:

        Oh lets not get nit picky here. I love how everyone says, you can’t “steal” a man. No one thinks Leann went into the Cibrian-Glanville family home, performed an armed robbery and put Eddie in her robber’s sack and went off with him. She isn’t going to sell stolen Eddie at the pawn shop. It’s a figure of speech!

        so yes, you can’t “steal” a man but you sure can make the decision to sleep with him and sabotage the relationship between him and his wife!!

      • Little Lulu says:

        I have a feeling when the same thing happens to Meann, she’s not going to get very much sympathy from the majority of the people who have heard all the crap she has done. Even when they stick her in the nuthouse, I’ll not have any sympathy for her….in fact, I hope someone will write a few songs about it.

      • Isa says:

        She IS a home wrecker at least. She wrecked her marriage.

  32. NeNe says:

    She doesn’t like drama, but supposedly she is staring in a reality show about their lives… WTF!!!

  33. Christin says:

    “It’s time for the conversation to change. I do music. I don’t blow up drama for the sake of a career.”

    Then why do the interviews (which are always within the bounds of what a celebrity is willing to discuss) focus on the personal drama?

    Who would’ve thought that a girl once hyped as the next Patsy would go on a TV show and immediately want the world to know she lacked any underwear.

    • Stacey says:

      GRINCH! Has she done something to her face or is it the weight gain?

      She is definitely rocking the body builder arms and shoulders.

    • ya says:

      Ya exactly….. she’s just really stupid and stubborn and/or the people around her are giving her very bad advice. If she just kept quiet about her personal life, simply answer any questions about the situation by saying her album is her only comment, and stop tweeting, this situation would blow over.

      Doesn’t she realize that she is only helping Brandi with all of these interviews?

      • claire says:

        This is exactly why she only has paid people around her and no real friends. No one not being paid to be there can tolerate her nonsense and bizarre logic for any lengthy period of time. It seems like the only people in the business who like her so much are those that have only dealt with her in very small doses, as well.

      • ya says:

        Ya who knows… she does obviously have a lot of respect in the music industry considering the top people who are playing on her album. This drama probably brings out the worst in her – I guess that’s pretty obvious – the drama touches on her main insecurity, which I think is connected to her guilt about infidelity.

      • Apsutter says:

        What top people are on her album? Rob Thomas and Darrel Brown? She burned off any goodwill the industry had for her a long time ago. After this no legit record label will touch her with a 10 foot pole. Bitch couldn’t even get an invite to the CMT awards…low brow thy name is Leann.

    • Little Lulu says:

      Since her new album is not getting her any attention, she has to bring up Brandi so that they’ll have her on so then she can talk about her non selling album. LMBO…watch her go broke buying up all her cd’s so she can claim how well it’s doing….she really thinks people are too stupid to know better. She has to be one of the most disliked women to have ever walked the face of the earth.

      • Deanne says:

        Yes and she just keeps making it worse.

      • Little Lulu says:

        I wonder what she did to make the CMA so mad at her that they don’t have anything to do with her anymore? I remember when she first started, she started singing Patsy Cline’s old hit record and she did well for a few years. Then she wasn’t heard from anymore, and the songs she was putting out weren’t selling. I stopped listening to her when she started squealing the notes to see how long she could squeal…I hate when singers do that…see how long they can make a word last and how many ways they can change the sound of that word…Reba M’s music got to be the same way, she started squealing, not singing, and her music stopped selling. Anyway, Leann must have turned into a real PIA during those teen years and made the wrong people mad…not to mention her dad, whom she sued. I don’t think I’ve ever saw her in the last several years in a pic with her parents, so it’s likely she doesn’t go around them.

    • Little Lulu says:

      Only someone who would rather be an actress than a singer! A woman wanting a role on a show would say something like not wearing panties, but not a genuine singer who’s promoting their cd. Perhaps Eddie was in the audience, and she was hoping she’d turn him on…I’m sure he’s sick of having sex with her by now, he’s ready for some new stuff…that’s how his type operates. Also, if she’s trying to start up a reality show of her “scripted” life with Eddie, why didn’t she have him on the show, too? If she wasn’t so insecure and so interested in herself, she’d be trying to help Eddie get exposure so he could find work….way to take his manhood away from him Meann, don’t you know it’s inbreed in a man it’s his duty to take care of his woman if he really loves her?

  34. Sapphire says:

    The side-eyes in the audience are the best! Too bad “The Hook” didn’t make an appearance. Her stylist hates her…

  35. Lisa says:

    Hahaha, such a satisfied audience.

  36. melma says:

    Looks like she’s even copying Brandi’s incredibly jacked up and fillered face. Not a good look ladies. Although leeann doesn’t have as much natural beauty to ruin…

  37. claire says:

    So basically she’s saying: I want to talk shit all the time, overshare, say inappropriate things, discuss Brandi being a bad mother all day to my fans on Twitter, throw shade and Brandi should just take it and not respond. If Brandi responds or tells me off, that’s drama. I don’t like drama. Therefore, Brandi is a bad person and I am a great person and above it all.

    And somehow that makes sense to her? Man, I wouldn’t want to live inside her head.

    • Relli says:

      Thats pretty much how I read it too. She is such a controlling person.

      • littlestar says:

        That’s how I read it too.

      • claire says:

        She believes that all she says is truth(no grasp of the words perspective or opinion) and all Brandi says is lies. She just said on Twitter that because all she says is truth, that it’s not fueling the drama when she talks smack about Brandi. I just can’t with her. She is really just so idiotic. I didn’t realize it was possible that someone could be this dim, this deficient in understanding basic concepts like cause and effect. Blowing smoke up a little kid’s butt, telling them they’re God’s gift, and not giving them an education is apparently a terrible combination.

    • Deanne says:

      Best description of what goes on in her mind ever. Having affairs that break up families isn’t drama. Suing everyone and their dog isn’t drama. Tweeting passive agressive insults to Brandi isn’t drama. Giving interview after interview discussing the affair and dissing Brandi isn’t drama. Brandi responding is the only drama. Seriously, how on earth does anyone get their head so far up their own backside that they can’t realize what a hypocrite they are? She must be a complete nightmare to deal with personally, She must literally never, ever accept that she is in the wrong about anything and must always blame someone else for anything that doesn’t go her way.

      • claire says:

        I remember when she was begging Perez Hilton to meet with her so she could share “her truth” and set him straight. She’s interviewing with him today. Perez Hilton, of all people. But, no, she doesn’t invite drama. At all.

    • Ming says:

      @claire- i read it like that too. its only ok if leann does it, but if anyone else does the same its drama.

  38. DEB says:

    OK, she’s mentally ill. I’m now convinced, seriously. Have you ever come across ANYONE with so little insight into their own behaviour? Get lost. If she’s addicted to anything, it’s her constant need and compulsion to convince the world that her marriage is awesome. Sod off.

  39. Cam S says:

    Wow, no drama huh? She sure does sue a lot of people and end up in court for someone who doesn’t invite drama! Calling haters from Twitter is certainly not causing drama either…

  40. Dawn J. says:

    OMG, she looks exactly like the Grinch!!She is delusional. She would be nothing if it wasn’t for all the drama she creates. It is the only thing that makes her relevant. She and her husband are both just creepy to me.

  41. Shanna says:

    She needs her own child. Then it will give her a place to direct her obsessiveness and energy. Although I would feel sorry for the child. I have heard of a few women that having children chills them out so maybe she will get lucky and it will have that result for her too.

    Eddie sure has a type. I can’t stand either one of them.

    • Little Lulu says:

      I think Eddie is too smart to have a child with her…he has to know she is crazy, and that she’s sue happy. Can you imagine how she’d be with him trying to see that child with her? The only way he’d be able to be near it if she was holding it in her arms….Eddie’s a fool, but he’s not that foolish.

  42. Rita says:

    Kim Kardashian hates publicity.

    Taylor Swift is saving herself for the right man.

    Lindsay Lohan doesn’t need rehab.

    LeAnn Rimes hates drama.

    Eddie is a loving faithful husb…..I can’t finish it. No one will believe it.

  43. tricklady says:

    So she has been in “The Business” since she was 13 and she only has 2 Grammy’s.
    What a lonely trophy case she has,two Grammy’s and Ed’s balls!

    Oh for the love of. How hard is it to say “I don’t talk about Brandi in interviews.” FFS, avoiding drama is so obviously not on the top of her list, nor is protecting any dignity of privacy for any member of the two families.

    Brandi should take the same tack and refuse to comment about LeAnn, Eddie, or their relationships with her kids. As many other have stated, she should just be documenting everything and taking it to her lawyer.

    • Little Lulu says:

      I agree with you, Brandi should never say one word about Leann or Eddie(unless she has something she needs to tell him about the boys), document every tweet and comment she makes….and make a document of every word written and spoken by Leann to the media and on twitter, and take it to her lawyer. Those children do not need to be around someone who is so taken with speaking about their mother all the time like Leann does.

  45. Relli says:

    One thing I don’t understand is why Cruddie needs to be part of her interviews all the time. I don’t see too many other “artists” drag out their husbands to garner interest in what they are selling. I mean yeah I get their need for their “TRUTH” to be out there and validation of how much in love they are but it just makes her look super codependent and needy.

    • Jayna says:

      He plugged his Hallmark Movie coming out to Mario also. He’s rarely interviewed, let’s face it, so it doesn’t hurt for him to be standing there at the Grove for an entertainment show and let people know he’s still around as an actor, not just a papped photo op walking behind LeAnn on Just Jared.

    • Little Lulu says:

      I think she’s the reason he doesn’t get interviews on his own, she won’t let him, and she has her PR person setting up the interviews. The last thing she wants is for Eddie to get his career up and running, because she knows he’d leave her in a heartbeat.

      It’s actually sad that she’s too stupid to realize how much she’s damaging his career and his ego by not letting him appear by himself with out her holding onto him like he’s gonna run off if she turns him loose. She should know there’s no way he can feel like a man the way she treats him.

  46. eileen says:

    I think the part that scares me is she will look at this interview and be so PROUD of it and think she was fabulous. She is SO proud of her adultery/bitch-fest album as well. She has no sense of her real self or her public image. Everyone around her is like “Wow, what a blowhard…” and she can’t see it. And its not like they are hiding it! She only sees and hears what she wants and it comes from her paid friends and family.

  47. qtpi says:

    Oh LeAnn, LeAnn, LeAnn.

    God Bless this has been bumpkin that wants to be seen as a sex symbol SO BADLY . Her ship has long sailed and now we have the likes of Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift.

    She is completely oblivious as to why Brandi didn’t walk away and hand everything to her. Brandi was supposed to be gracious about the whole thing, ya’ll! Doesn’t she understand that they fell in love?!

    Except it didn’t happen that way did it Le? You may have fallen head over heels – but Eddie???? Not so much. Brandi kicked him out and he had no choice. He was looking at having to get his own place and start paying child support. Money he didn’t have.

    So to LeAnn he had to go. The second Ediot gets a high paying gig that brings in regular cash or her money runs out he is out the door.

  48. bettyrose says:

    I sort of like the dress. Id wear it with clunky boots and a black shawl. Whatever drama Brandi brings to this situation, I give her a pass because she was dragged into it.

  49. Simply Red says:

    Three sides to a story..
    Brandi, LR and the actual truth

    I’m not giving Brandi credit because she is just as much a crap starter as LR…

    LR still is a singer/ songwriter…
    Brandi is a woman who made her career from her unfaithful husband behaviour…

    So actually who needs who…

    All Artist’s write about their relationships good and bad..

    Brandi nor LR are being responsible in this debacle…

    • eileen says:

      That might be true…but you know what Brandi would never do? Sue a stranger who she called and bitched at over the stranger not liking her on twitter and not wanting to come for a drink so the stranger can see how great she is and like her. Brandi most definitely would never do something as pathetic as that. That’s a low I don’t know many would stoop to. We can all compare or dislike one of these women, but only one of them has repeatedly tried to ruin lives to get her way. Just my thoughts.

      • Cirque28 says:

        Now that you mention it… it IS difficult to picture Brandi doing anything like that. I think you’re right.

        Although Brandi shoots from the hip and maybe does start drama (I have a hard time commenting on this one, because when you’re a Real Housewife, isn’t that part of your job? IDK.), you can tell she’s entirely benign. LeAnn puts a sweet-as-pie facade over her malicious intentions, which is why people find LeAnn so fake.

    • betty says:

      Brandi using them as a stepping stone to upstart her career is understandable because she didn’t create the drama. A lot of singers use personal experience in songwriting. But Leann uses her as the focal point of her life Shows how desperate she is.We know her pretend family and devoted husband is a big joke like she is and people are just laughing at her. Typical of a delusional woman that has to fake a happy life.

    • Little Lulu says:

      Brandi doesn’t need LR or Eddie to stay on the show, the viewers like her, in fact, she is one of the top three viewers choices on the show. She also didn’t need them to be on all the other shows that she’s been on. Leann does need Brandi, every story written about her begins with the sentence with Brandi’s name in it. Not one article says one word about ” I hear the new cd is doing good”….they want to hear about Brandi…not Leann and Eddie.

  50. Gistine says:

    She looks like she should have a hand up her butt while she’s sitting on someone’s lap! It’s Howdy Doody Time!

  51. Iyanla says:

    I thought Leann told Chelsea Handler that she doesnt tweet Brandi besides to spurt out against “lies” yet she has sent several tweets to Brandi this morning. Wtf. Smh. Leann is such a liar!

  52. lisa says:

    her face is weird, her behavior is weird. if she isnt going to sing, there is no place for her.

  53. Lisa says:

    I started singing You’re A Mean One, Mr Grinch at the third picture.

  54. Simply Red says:

    I agree with @ Eileen

    I can name quite few artist’s who their focal points is based on their relationships good and bad-

    As for singers/songwriters we’ll agree to disagree. :-)

    But I def hear both of U ladies

  55. Tracy says:

    She has to stay relevant because her husband can’t act and he may need a new boat! This guy (and Leanne) have already proven they are losers so stop already! You have a husband to support–and one who is not ‘all that’ either. I don’t understand who would want THAT? No job, shady, obviously lying……

  56. Helvetica says:

    And yet, her entire celebrity is based on drama, so is her new album, so is her fame.


  57. FlatAsAPancake says:

    In all seriousness, did she remove her implants?

  58. Leslie says:

    Poor, pitiful LeAnn…she lives outside of reality.

  59. Kittypants says:

    The face that launched a thousand protests.

  60. Raquel says:

    I feel about LeAnn the same way I do about Madonna.

    I won’t slam them because they’ve aged. That’s stupid. Aging is natural. I will age. So will every stuck up star/let brat who is hung up on their looks.

    I will slam them because they refuse to age GRACEFULLY. Because they prance around and to things that society deems ‘sexy’…when a 19 year old does it. Because, for all their years, they haven’t learned that 19 year old wanna-be sexy behavior is cheap, and that they haven’t acquired traits to replace it with by the time they’ve 50.

    And, oh, yeah–the drama is pathetic. Today, she’s announcing that that she wasn’t wearing undies. Tomorrow, she’ll be whining that pap sites are zeroing in on photos where her dress is clearly riding into her butt crack. God bless celebs who’ve GOT to have things both ways…

  61. Dinah says:

    Looks like the daughter of the Joker in the pic where she gestures to herself.

    Also, isn’t it wild that she thinks the general public labors under the same delusions as she?

    Telling a lie 500 times doesn’t make it true. Someone ought to soundly slap that little fact into her numb skull.

  62. Leslie says:

    I saw that Brandi’s dog was missing. Wonder if LeAnn stole it?

  63. Jennifer12 says:

    I can’t believe this ridiculous excuse for a human being. First she tried to step on Brandi and get rid of her because Brandi had the nerve to be married to the man Leann wanted, and have the man’s sons. Then she stalked, bullied and harassed her while using Brandi’s sons as pawns. And now she’s rewriting history and acting as though she is a victim. Why, WHY doesn’t the media call her out on it? I think people who are fiercely committed to bullying and insisting on their side of the story and manipulating tend to intimidate the media and get them to listen. Brandi is no saint, but dealing with Leann co-opting her sons and behaving inappropriately towards them and selling their pictures and having Leann send her minions after her to bully her- and there is LOADS of evidence to support it- requires the patience of Job.

  64. Christin says:

    @Little Lulu – The part about the squealing reminds me of when she came to a fairground near where some friends live. In separate conversations, each had nearly identical descriptions of her singing (which they could hear from their homes, which are one to two miles away, in opposite directions). Each said it was just “loud”. One described it as the loudest singing he had heard in the years he’d lived there. When I asked if it was good, they would repeat how loud it was (one said she must have good lungs). And this was in the post-Blue days when she was still very much hyped.

  65. UsedToBeLulu says:

    She’s looking more and more fleshy, isn’t she?

  66. mae says:

    Everyone know that the person who tell you how honest they are, are rarely honest. Just like the person who says they aren’t into drama. People who are honest and drama free just are they don’t have to tell people. LeAnn is the biggest DRAMA queen ever!

  67. Vesper says:

    The thing is, LeAnn has been in the public eye for almost 20 years and until Brandi came along there was NO drama. She kept her private life private, even as a teen.

    Brandi, on the other hand, is nothing but drama 24/7 – her tweets, her behavior on HWOBH, her quickie “marriage”, her book (did we really need to hear details about her v surgery or her sex life with Eddie), her need to manipulate things so all eyes are on her, her drunken antics. Every time things settle down she starts it all over again, not just with LeAnn, but also with her coworkers. Her behavior seems well ingrained. I’m sure people from her past consider her a high maintenance drama queen as well.

    • Cirque28 says:

      Sorry Vesper, I don’t think Brandi is the thing that changed in LeAnn’s life. Among other factors, LeAnn has her beloved Twitter now. Many famous people started making public fools of themselves when they joined Twitter.

      If by “people from her past” you’re referring to Ediot, yes, I can imagine he does consider her a high maintenance drama queen. People often vilify those they’ve wronged, especially in the course of a relationship. It makes it easier to live with their own lousy behavior.

    • TheTruthHurts says:

      “Allegedly” leaking your affair with video to US Weekly is not keeping your life private. LeAnn started this nightmare and continues it every single day.

    • Baylor says:

      Do you not remember all the lawsuits and bad press she got in her teen years?!! Then when she got with Dean, she simmered down. However, she would give random pictorials/interviews on her “amazing life with Dean” and her seven itch party etc….

      Drama free and private?! That’s a joke…

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Brandi’s fault she was buying alcohol and wrecking cars as a teenager? Brandi’s fault that she was living with a boyfriend as a teenager? Brandi’s fault that she sued her father and record label as a teenager? Brandi’s fault that she was captured on tape by her own stepmother as a teenager? Brandi’s fault that she cheated on Dean? Brandi’s fault that Leann called the paps on herself and Eddie and then involved Brandi’s sons? Brandi’s fault that she makes out with Eddie at soccer games, grabs his crotch in front of the boys on vacation and climbed over Jake to make out with Eddie? Brandi’s fault that she was somehow papped on a balcony, stripping off her top, pretending to make out with Liz, while Eddie photographed it? Brandi’s fault that paps somehow got into her honeymoon suite with Eddie? Brandi’s fault that she was photographed jumping up and down in a bikini while everyone else was clothed? Brandi’s fault that she posts every part of her life, including boys that aren’t hers, on Twitter and Vine? Brandi’s fault that, mysteriously, paps show up to every one of the boys’ games that Leann attends? You can’t be serious.

      • Cirque28 says:

        Jen12, it all makes sense once you realize Brandi is able to reach into the past and magically make drama happen before someone even meets her. Brandi Glanville: time-traveling arch nemesis of LovE!

      • Jennifer12 says:

        OMG, this blame the victim mentality is rampant! Brandi must feel like it’s Groundhog Day every day and not in a good way. Leann stayed under the radar for years because she’s not THAT famous, and because Dean subdued her excesses to a point. I just can’t with this mentality that Brandi somehow caused LR problems and LR is the victim. How do people actually accept this as the truth?

    • claire says:

      Yes, since Leann gave the surgery info to her fans, who taunted her with it for years, she did have to reclaim that story and tell it herself. I guess you think it’s cool that Leann and her fans did that though, huh?

    • jaye says:

      That actually isn’t true. When she was younger, she was involved with some guy who was on Seventh Heaven and there was some drama about that. And she sued her dad. And absent the drama of those two situations, she and her ex-husband were profiled on shows like Entertainment Tonight pretty frequently. She hasn’t been this completely private person. Those past situations just pale in comparison to the clusterf*ck that is her life now. If she and Brandi would keep their issues off of Twitter, they could establish some normalcy for the sake of the kids. If Eddie doesn’t honor the terms of the custody agreement, and she has evidence of it, take him to family court. None of the parties involved in this mess are innocent.

      • candigirl says:

        I believe Leann stalked that former lover on the set of his show too. In her teens Leann sued her dad, her manager and her record company and cried about it in every media interview she gave. She and her mom used the tabloids at every turn to trash her dad and stepmom, spreading lies and gossip to prejudice things for the lawsuits and the divorce. Leann was caught doing this when she tape recorded her own conversation bragging to her dad that she could cry on cue and would lie and cry to win her lawsuit against him. All of it very public drama. Leann wore a custom made t-shirt about her dad and sang nastily: “My Heart Belongs to Daddy at the CMT’s or some big awards show, laughing about suing her dad. Her dad was trying to prevent (unsuccessfully) a young teen Leann from moving in with her adult boyfriend putting him and his family on the payroll and buying him drugs, and booze. She did the same with her next adult boyfriend, Andrew Keegan and also bought him sports cars which he and she crashed, all these events were detailed in lurid stories in the tabloids. Also a teen Leann was well known on the party scene of Hollywood, including the Playboy mansion. Leann has also gotten into many public feuds over the years and trash talked about many other female country singers. She is well known to country fans and music insiders as a spoiled and arrogant performer who frequently cancels concerts and fan meetings with no notice leaving many people without reimbursement or apologies. Besides her dad, her manager, her record company, Leann has sued or sent legal cease and desist letters to threaten suits against many media blogs like this one, Brandi Glanville, Brandi’s dentist and Kim Smiley a mother of six and a special needs teacher, and Kim’s daughter. Leann was particularly dramatic with the last lawsuit and threatened to sue Kim into bankruptcy and take her home. Leann Rimes has made a career of tabloid drama.

      • Christin says:

        Not sure if this counts as drama, but it was a news story when she left school because (allegedly) other girls were jealous and picking on her. Also, she got coverage when she told her father she hated him when a judge made a ruling in the record contract case.

    • Sal says:

      Um you clearly didn’t know that it was Leann, not Brandi who disclosed to everyone that Brandi had V surgery. Leann told her supporters about another woman’s private medical history, and because it was already out there, thanks to Leann, Brandi had to address it in her book.

  68. Rachael says:

    God she is irritating. Go. Away. You’re insecure fame-whoring is so transparent. Brandi is more awesome than you.

  69. qtpi says:

    Just watched the video of them on extra. Hilarious and worth a watch for those that love this budget love triangle.


    A few things: When Eddie is introduced she makes a dumb face and sticks her tongue out. That would make a great still shot.

    He is asked about the album and scratches his neck and behind the opposite ear/neck area for a decent amount of time. “Body language of lies – Hands touching their face, throat & mouth. Touching or scratching the nose or behind their ear. Not likely to touch his chest/heart with an open hand.” http://www.blifaloo.com/info/lies.php

    Pulled this old video up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W6YK8VBuBW8
    Don’t think she has this voice anymore – can anyone post something to prove she does?

    • Jayna says:

      She still has a voice and beautiful tone (if she focused on her vocals) except last year when she was high on stage most of the time. If she would focus on her voice and getting it in tiptop shape, retraining with a vocal coach, she would still be formidable as a vocalist. Still, her vocals are much better this year compared to last. I didn’t think it was possible given her state last year.

      But she was fifteen in your link. There is no way she will have that pure of a voice again. Her bottom range came in more.

      Only 2 1/2 years ago (Weight loss, but before her anorexic look and before her unfortunate plastic surgery on her face)
      The Rose:

      These performances shocked me considering how bad she was in December a few months before.

      2013 performances show she still has the range and voice and the potential for her voice to be even amazing again if she had her priorities straight.

      Few these days can sing to just minimal music or in this case acapella. Standing ovations for both of these songs. You may not like the second one, but vocally she gives a stunning performance to just a guitar.

      Amazing Grace acapella – 2013 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uasMuAuvjKs

      Borrowed – 2013

    • Jayna says:

      I forgot to add. On the Rose video, it isn’t just that her face used to look normal as far as flatter, not overfilled with filler and botox and whatever she’s done to her face that you can see the difference, but look at her mouth. People talk about her odd mouth now, how oddly the sides of her mouth curl up, jokerish some call it, but look at the shape of her mouth before in the video, very normal. I still can’t figure out what she’s done to her mouth/lips.

      • Cirque28 says:

        In the Rose video, she had way more movement in her face than she does now. 30 is too young for Botox and that rubbery overfilled look is not a good thing to covet.

        I can’t figure out what has happened to her mouth either. Over the last couple of years, her lips and teeth have gone up and down in size, and now they’re just… strange.

      • Ming says:

        she’s had something done to the corners so that when she smiles her gums no longer show. in some photos you can see indent/dimple marks near the corner of her mouth.

  70. Cam S says:

    Eddie will forever be in Leann’s shadow. I guess she likes it that way

  71. Christin says:

    How about when she joined in (or rather re-started) the Faith and Carrie awards show controversy? That was in 2006 (pre-Brandi).

    This is a great summary:


    I agree with everything the writer says. I’m baffled why anyone would downplay someone who is voted a contract by the public. He points out that Sinatra won a talent show. I’ve always wondered if Le is miffed that she didn’t win Star Search years ago, because some of her quotes (particularly throwing shade at the Carries of today) seem to overlook that chapter of her childhood attempts to start a career.

    And, her quote about awards shows: “These awards shows are SO political and we all get fed up with them. We all work very hard and have for many years so to see someone come in and win Female Vocalist that has been here for a VERY short time, is a little disheartening.”

    Also in 2006, twitter came along. And the rest is history.

  72. candigirl says:

    At the age of 14, Leann also had a dramatic feud with Trisha Yearwood and the producers of the film: “Con Air” over the song “How Do I Live” in the film. The producers felt Leann was too young at 14 yrs. for the film’s image and that her version was too “pop,”, they wanted a different sound for the song and went with Trisha Yearwood’s version for the movie release. Leann threw a tantrum and released her version of the song on the same day, trash talking Trisha Yearwood. This spoiled manipulative child star behavior has been evident for most of Leann’s life

    • nomorerimes says:

      Loved your post here and the one above. A lot of people don’t know the whole story and come on here and post garbage sympathic about LR. She herself said she has a “dark side” and people are finally beginning to see it.

      As to her not being a drama queen–she is the queen of liars, stalkers, homewreckers and sickos!

  73. Dawn J. says:

    Couple of her fans have mentioned to her about the little dog belonging to Brandi missing, and asking her to re-tweet. What does she do? She post a Vine of her little dog instead. She is so vindictive and so obviously transparent. No wonder her shitfire album is already tanking.

  74. Michele says:

    The crowd doesn’t even look happy to be there LOL

  75. Ming says:

    i would like leann to explain these “lies” she’s always going on about.
    what are the lies???

  76. Leslie says:

    I think I figured out what’s wrong with LeAnn’s mouth. It’s her teeth. I was looking at that pic where she’s got her head back and mouth open. She’s had her teeth capped or reshaped or something so that they are too big for her mouth. Most people’s upper and lower plates are shaped in a half oval; hers are shaped in a half circle.

  77. Jayna says:

    Dear God, what a crock. Sure, Brandi has definitely instigated stuff online that was unnecessary or for drama. But LeAnn is far worse and her passive-aggressive behavior is more days than not. I am sick of both of them online with their behavior but LeAnn is the one I am most sick of because it’s never-ending. She technically believes all her passive-aggressive tweeting is different, that she’s just tweeting about her life. LOL

    And what about yesterday, including Brandi in her tweet to answer something, and a
    follower said isn’t that creating drama tweeting the remark and tweeting it to Brandi also. She’s says that’s not drama, just the truth. She is so delusional. Eddie is the only one that says nothing. So it was laughable when LeAnn says in these interviews they are drama free and don’t play into it.

    No one is buying it, LeLe. People ate sick of you keeping this drama alive four years later just like they are when Brandi pulls it also.
