Just what a lazy, quiet Labor Day holiday weekend needed: budget drama from Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes. For what it’s worth, I did get a chuckle out of this drama, but I’ve become inured to the pettiness of these two (mostly LeAnn, but sometimes Brandi). The background: LeAnn and Eddie Cibrian are doing a “scripted reality show” where they will play versions of themselves and they’re casting actors to play Eddie’s sons and Eddie’s ex-wife, Brandi. Except maybe someone, somewhere wanted Brandi to actually play herself on LeAnn’s show? On Friday, Brandi tweeted: “I am laughing sooooooo hard at offer that just came into my agent for me. A certain soon to be new reality slash script series. NOT GONNA DO IT!!! OMG OMG.” Not to be outdone, LeAnn launched this back within a matter of a few hours:
LeAnn Rimes and the producers of her upcoming reality show are slamming Brandi Glanville‘s claim she’d been asked to appear on the VH1 series, as exclusively reported on RadarOnline.com.
A source close to the production tells us exclusively it was Brandi’s people who made the approach, not the other way around.
“Brandi’s agent saw one of the producers of LeAnn and Eddie’s show at an event recently and approached him about Brandi being on the show. Of course, it’s not what LeAnn or Eddie want to do at all, so they never responded to her formal approach. Not content, the agent contacted VH1 a few days ago asking for $25,000 a show without ever being solicited for it,” the source reveals.
The source claims that only when the producers didn’t respond did Brandi start claiming they’d made her an offer she’d turned down.
“She can’t stand that Eddie and LeAnn haven’t responded, let alone have no interest in her being on their show. I mean, why would they ever in a million years have her on their show? She thinks she’s some big draw. It’s crazy!”
As we previously reported, Brandi — famous for her very public feuding with Rimes — claimed she was asked to be on the upcoming so-called “scripted” reality show starring her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his country singer wife.
“I am laughing sooooooo hard at offer that just came into my agent,” The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tweeted.
Saturday afternoon, LeAnn struck back, “I’m crying from laughing so hard! Thank god for some nonsense on a sick day. I so needed a good laugh. Back to the couch & football”.
Do you believe that Brandi Glanville would approach a producer and ask if she could be on LeAnn and Eddie’s show? Um. No. I won’t give Brandi credit for a lot of things, but she’s proven to be much smarter (about getting under LeAnn’s skin) than that. So, if we don’t believe LeAnn’s version of events – because, seriously, LeAnn called Radar and gave them those quotes – do we believe Brandi’s version of events, that somebody approached her agent? Eh. I think it’s possible that someone, somewhere, wanted to gauge Brandi’s interest but that doesn’t necessarily mean it came from LeAnn or that LeAnn was even told about it. These two definitely need to go to their separate corners. But mostly LeAnn needs to stop Twitter-stalking Brandi and responding hysterically to every little thing Brandi says or does.
Play the game, Spot The Single White Female-ing. (LeAnn got Brandi’s purse, shoes & scarf for the uninitiated. These photos took me about 3 minutes to find, so … it’s really obvious.)
