Brandi Glanville continues to not engage with LeAnn & Eddie: brilliant or dumb?


Here are some photos of Brandi Glanville out and about yesterday in Beverly Glen. She looks pretty good here, right? Not so plastic. She was apparently running some errands and in these photos, she’s waiting for the valet to bring her car around. In case you haven’t noticed, Brandi has been keeping suspiciously quiet recently. Very few public statements or noteworthy tweets, and this is the first time she’s been pap’d in a while.

The reason why Brandi has been keeping quiet? She was making a conscious effort not to engage with Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes. You can say a lot about Brandi, but this girl has an incredibly effective strategy whenever she’s dealing with her ex and his new wife. She’s always been able to play them and she’s always been able to get under LeAnn’s skin with just a few well-chosen words. It’s Brandi’s special gift. And now that she’s not engaging with LeAnn and Eddie, they look like bigger idiots. Their VH1 show is full of references and snide remarks about Brandi – it’s like LeAnn and Eddie don’t know how to be together without actively bringing Brandi into their marriage. Brandi haunts them like a righteous ghost. Anyway, Brandi tweeted this a few days ago:

Ha, “I’m not perpetuating a non existent feud 2 get peeps to watch my tv shows!” And that’s it. One line in one tweet and she made Eddie and LeAnn look like desperate stunt queens begging for her to engage with them. Perfection! *claps for Brandi*

And Brandi did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge but she must have filmed it in 1998 because that sh-t is grainy and low-budget – you can see it here.

    this will never end, will it?

    also, i thought it was leanne in the header picture.

  2. Penelope says:

    Good for her. And she does look pretty here!

  3. Regarded says:

    I’m really glad she’s not engaging. It’s better for her and her sons. Eddie and LeAnn are morons.
    On a side note, I do watch their show – what can I say, I love to hate. While I think the production quality is pretty decent, the show itself is SO boring. The last one with LeAnn babysitting was a snoozefest. I also don’t get why she has to make up fake scandals about but cakes… She would get a lot more mileage talking about her real twitter feuds.

  4. lucy2 says:

    The best thing for the kids would be for the adults to attempt to get along. Not engaging in the public spectacle is a big part of that, so good for her. Hope she sticks with it.

  5. SouthernGal says:

    Brandi is living proof that the best revenge is LIVING WELL AND BEING HAPPY! And she’s a fellow Scorpio too. We know how to get the best revenge without saying a word. We get you with our ACTIONS!


  6. LeAnn Stinks says:


    The dumb move would be to engage with those two numbskalls. She comes out on top by ignoring LeAnn’s baiting, and LeAnn in return, looks like she always does: immature, desperate and bratty.

  7. Astrid says:

    If she’s not engaging and encouraging the “fued” why did she tweet the message?

  8. briargal says:

    Absolutely brilliant! They counted on her reacting and she didn’t!!! They are hanging themselves with their own ropes!!! LOL!!! And I agree with SouthernGal about the best revenge being living well and being happy! Yeah for Brandi!!

  9. Lisa says:

    Leann and Eddie are showing the world they are boring, slimy, and unfunny. Brandi doesn’t need to do a thing.

  10. QQ says:

    Is that a Tit rose or liquid lunch stain?

    That is all i see and/or/care about here

  11. msw says:

    I think it would have been better if she never even said that. LeAnn and Eddie are already standing in a grave with shovels while they beg everyone to see how awful Brandi is. Its hard not to look like a bully when you keep railing against someone who isn’t engaging, especially if you know the back story on these two. Brandi can be a twit, but when it comes to this pair of asshats, she will always have the upper hand, no matter how much shit they try to sling.

    • Christin says:

      I agree with this. They’ve repeatedly tried to bait her in interviews and the show. I don’t think anyone in this trio is exactly brilliant, but Brandi plays the game better.

      Now I’m wondering when the network will officially notify the Lucy / Desi wannabes that their show will not be seeing a second season, no matter who pays for it.

  12. bettyrose says:

    Well played. Now put down Bozo’s sunglasses and walk slowly away from them.

  13. bravocueen says:

    I think she looks really good here. “Softer” and less plastic-y. I’m glad she’s not engaging. She only makes herself look bad when she does. I think she’s finally recovering from the trauma of her life the last few years and we might get to see fun, mostly sober Brandi this season. Not self-destructive, mean-girl.

  14. OrangeBlohan says:

    Her star continues to rise, while douch & douchetta’s stars are swirling in the shart filled toilet!!

  15. G says:

    Love it…go Brandi!

    This story is what brought me to Celebitchy back in 2008 was it? Good times…good times…

    ps. Her nails confuse me.

  16. littlestar says:

    I say GOOD JOB Brandi! If she wants a lasting “career” in Hollywood, she’s going to have to stop engaging with Eddiot and Leann to keep the publicity going and find a new form/way of promoting herself. I believe she can do it. Hopefully :) .

  17. eliza says:

    Brandi is as vile as LeAnn and Eddie. There are no winners swimming in this cess pool.

  18. Jess says:

    I love that she’s keeping quiet, it’s making Eddie and LeakAnn look like even bigger idiots. They have nothing to keep them in the spotlight without Brandi, and they come off obsessed with her. Brandi had every right to speak her mind and be angry in the beginning, now she seems to have calmed down and moved on with her life, she’s so successful with everything she does and she’s coming out on top, while the other two can’t find much work and continue to look like spiteful jerks, perfect!

  19. bammer says:

    Just because her husband cheated on her doesn’t automatically make her a good person. She’s proven herself to be a nasty racist drunk. The only people who deserve sympathy are those two kids with these asshat parents.

  20. Jayna says:

    She didn’t engage, because it would help their ratings. She didn’t engage because she has nothing to gain from it. Her show isn’t on. She has no book coming out. Nothing to make money off of engaging or talking about them. She talks about them when it benefits her, not benefits them. She’s no dummy. Street smarts. It was silly to even do that tweet, althought it’s not really engaging them. But complete silence (ignoring) was the best thing she could have done to LeAnn and Eddie. They look like fools carrying on about the tabloids and Brandi five years later. But it’s their truth. LOL But Brandi will pull her own stunts later on even if not about them that makes her trash in my book anyway.

    Team Dean.

    • Jenny12 says:

      I love Dean, but he was able to walk away completely. I’d lose my mind if my kids had to be with those 2 50% of the time and Eddie did things like bring Leann to sing for Family Day when he had recently left Brandi.

      • Jayna says:

        I don’t like Brandi for a lot of reasons that have nothing to do with her reaction to LeAnn and Eddie. Although, a lot of her stuff was gutter also and no excuse. A lot I completely understand and sympathize. I would hate to be in her shoes with a LeAnn as a new wife and an ex-husband who encourages it. I find her trash anyway, as I said for many reasons. I can’t stand LeAnn and Eddie, but it doesn’t make me like Brandi. I used to like her. As time went on, I saw many sides to her that turn me off.

        Dean, even if pushed farther because they shared a kid, would still always have more class in his pinky than Brandi.

      • Jenny12 says:

        It’s cool, we’re not all going to like the same people. And I agree, Dean is great.

    • claire says:

      Well, not having to still have contact with those two idiots and getting a huge settlement, not to mention signing an agreement not to talk, has a lot to do with it I’m sure. Who knows what hell Leann would be putting him through if they had kids together. Based on what we’ve seen from her, I don’t think it’d be pretty. But he does, I agree, seem like a calm classy guy. We don’t know how far he’d have been pushed to a breaking point though. Leann has that knack.

      • betty says:

        You are right, if Brandi has never had to have contact with them, she could have been like Dean. But unfortunately for her she did., because of the kids. The kids are the ones Eddie try to use to get back at her because she was done with him. But in the long run he is the one looking like the douche.

  21. respect says:

    Love it! She actually stopped engaging a long time ago, but only the people who follow this trainwreck (guilty as charged)noticed. Now, just when they base a show around her so called Attacks, the world is finally seeing where the excrement stirring comes from. I think ediot is the puppet master, but sharty mcpoopstain is a fabulous evil minion.

  22. Francis says:

    She obviously engaged by tweeting about it.
    She turned me off those housewives shows forever.
    Don’t like her at all, she’s awful.

  23. k37744 says:

    Does anyone else think she looks like a really pretty Brooke Mueller here? She looks great…..but a lot of these Hollywood women are so lacking in any physical diversity. Life’s rough when you have to look like a Barbie.

  24. Jenny12 says:

    I say good for her. She was a wreck for a while, but she seems to be getting it together and doing better. The fact that she stays sane while dealing with these two asshats and what they do with her children gives her brownie points. I think she’s learning to filter, to calm down and to move past what happened. I would want to argue point for counterpoint everything they kept saying about her if it was me, but she just let it go and that’s smart. I don’t think she’s a rocket scientist, but I think she’s getting better advice, support from good friends and she is self aware, which always helps. It’s a shame her boys’ young years were ruined, but I’m glad she’s getting peace. She’s willing to learn and change.

  25. caitrin says:

    She’s a vile, vulgar, horrible woman whose “joke” about wanting to be “molested as a child” I will never, ever forget, and which I will always hate her for. I don’t understand what there is to like, much less to admire, about this self centered, selfish, mean spirited, callous woman who has ALREADY exploited her ex-husband so much, that she’s no one to talk about Edie using HER actions and traits for t.v. fodder. Plus, she exploits her very OWN kids. Hideously unlikable shrew.

  26. aaa says:

    Brandi has tweeted more than once about not feuding / not engaging, which to me is a passive-aggressive way of engaging and getting attention.

    I have not lost sight of Brandi being a nasty piece of work, and her feud / non-feud with her ex and his current wife isn’t even the half of it, but still I’ll give Brandi well-played kudos for not throwing tantrums on Twitter or in the media over the things that’s been said about her by Eddie and Leann.

    • Lydia Says says:

      @AAA says. I agree. To be fair, whatever they say is child play compared to what Brandi had said and wrote about them. Brandi is not throwing a tantrum or acting foolish on twitter because she’s not currently promoting something. There are three sides of a story. But we only heard Brandi’s side with all the gory details. IMO, she did just as much dirt in her failed relationship as her ex. But people still give her a pass. She has proven to be as much of a liar as her ex.

      • Kelliekat says:

        Uh no. Encouraging and paying fans to create websites about killing Brandi is not “child’s play.”
        Tweeting photos of yourself shooting at a gun range and implying you want to kill the mother of your step kids is not “child’s play.”
        Stalking and swf-ing your husband’s ex wife for five years is not “child’s play.”
        Retweeting and giving shoutouts at your concerts to fans who wear t-shirts that say things like “F*ck Brandi” or tweets that call her a whore/cunt/bitch is not “child’s play”
        Tweeting photos of the birthday cake you designed for your stepson’s dad with you and he naked in bed while they cower underneath you is not “child’s play.”
        This pattern of stalking, threats and menacing behavior is psychotic.

      • Jenny12 says:

        True, KellieKat. You forgot the fact that she wrote an entire album and fake Pinterest about killing Brandi and her hatred of her. Or that she inserted herself in situations like Family Day when she was newly with Eddie, insisting on singing at the kids’ school. Or that she not only posts photos and video of the boys, but she repeatedly exposes their schools. Puts them on speedboats without lifejackets. Had a 6 year old on a public road with a bike with no training wheels that he couldn’t ride and no helmet and kept telling him to go faster while she videoed it and didn’t stay next to him. And, scariest of all, that she brings Brandi’s kids- before she was even stepparent- to meet people who threaten their mother on Twitter.

  27. Leslie says:

    Go Brandi!!! I know it is killing both LeAnn and Eddie that their plan backfired. Their bashing Brandi has exposed just how stupid and mean they are.

  28. why? says:

    Like clockwork, the Brandi haters come out of nowhere. Was Brandi even referring to Leann and Eddie and their show? I thought that her comment was in reference to an incident involving Dr. Debrow and another show.

    I don’t understand why the Leann fans get upset whenever Brandi says something about Leann and Eddie after being baited for months and months by Leann, Eddie, Leann’s fans , and Leann’s employees. Leann was tweeting about Jake and Mason’s first day of school and sharing personal information about their schools with her fans this week. Why is Leann the victim? Brandi has exercised more restraint than the Leann fans give her credit for.

    • Bunbun says:

      “Leann was tweeting about Jake and Mason’s first day of school and sharing personal information about their schools with her fans this week. Why is Leann the victim?”

      aaa…care to answer this question?

      • aaa says:

        Since you asked…I don’t think there is anything wrong with Leann tweeting about her stepsons, they’ve been a family unit for over three years.

        The original comment was a misrepresentation, which is not the first time that person has made misrepresentations and distortions. Leann was not tweeting with a fan, she was tweeting with the parent of a friend of her stepson. Personally I wonder why they are tweeting and not texting or emailing, but there have also been conversations about the kids over Twitter between that same parent and Brandi.

      • Jenny12 says:

        Both Karla and Leann were incredibly irresponsible. Karla was posting photos of her son in front of the school, which is dumb to do as a parent, but they also just told the world where Mason goes to school. They were discussing kids by name who go to that school, none of whom are theirs. Why not draw twitter’s many psychos a map? And while Karla needs to shut up, she was initially discussing her son. Mason is Brandi’s child and Leann has no right to publicly discuss him nor his school. As a parent, I am careful about what I expose publicly, but as a teacher, you are not allowed to expose children’s names or faces without parental consent; I can’t even do this as an aunt. Leann is not a parent and does not legally have this right, no matter what her other personalities have been telling her.

    • Francis says:

      Agree 100% Caitrin. Brandi is awful. She says racist things, she stirs crap up between the other housewives. I stopped watching HW after she told a private family issue which involved a baby, about one of the housewives which was none of her business. I just can’t stand watching her hate and evil put downs of everyone.
      Randi is vile.

      Brandi on her own, is just a awful individual on the HW show.

  29. Alison says:

    What is wrong with her nose?

  30. truthful says:

    Good for her!!!

    I want her to get a hot rich older lover man…one that has more $$ than Lee, she’d break the bank tryin to keep up w/Brandi’s fashions and new found lifestyle.

    if coo-coo Taylor from her show can get a man, (even though he was married and then divorced) B can.

  31. LAK says:

    And with that one tweet she’s engaged them.

    Brandi, please, please don’t acknowledge them AT ALL.

    • Jayna says:

      And off she goes. I just checked LeAnn’s twitter. She has retweeted a bunch of inspirational quotes, I guess, today because of Brandi and I suspect also because of the people making fun of her show tanking. This is her way of saying how she takes the higher road and leaning on her spirituality and deep inside soul to keep her at peace from all the haters. So predictable. This is why Brandi shouldn’t have even tweeted that one line saying did we notice she hadn’t engaged. It opens the door for LeAnn to go into her delusional passive-aggressive tweets. Of course, that wasn’t the only reason. It’s been reported how bad her TV show is doing. Her spurts of flooding her twitter with inspirational quotes is always a great laugh for me. Then her last tweet is to tweet a screen capture of them number one in trending. What does that prove? Her show is sinking rapidly in the ratings to an embarrassing level.

      If LeAnn was as deep as she likes to profess, she wouldn’t engage in petty high-school behavior.

  32. Lydia Says says:

    This site gives Brandi way too much credit. She’s just as bad Leanne; they both keep stirring the pot for attention. If she’s not engaging why mention the word feud at all? She’s not currently trashing Leanne & Eddie because she’s not selling trashy books.

  33. Byte Me says:

    By being totally indifferent is the best revenge. Way to go Brandi. Keep it up.

  34. ycnan says:

    How exactly is she not engaging by tweeting that? Geez.

  35. hmmm says:

    Or as Lady Diana said once “There were three people in this marriage from the start.” Only not so literally.

  36. Dotty says:

    Nothing that this wash-out does could even generously be called “brilliant”. And she was totally engaging with that tweet to solicit praise for not engaging. They all deserve to fade into history. Poor kids.
