Brandi Glanville: LeAnn is ‘checking social media all day long, it’s ridiculous’

2016 NBCUniversal Summer Tour

I know some of you have been complaining about the fact that Brandi Glanville, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are still sniping at each other after all these years. But you know what? I’m enjoying it. Celebrity gossip has been struggling this year, and we’re blessed to have LeAnn, Brandi and Eddie these days. The world may burn but these three will still be focused on their own drama. And there’s so much of it! I won’t do an exhaustive recap, but here are the basics: longtime stalker LeAnn stalked Brandi and when Brandi called her out, Eddie tried to show some receipts and make some excuses but Brandi is not having any of it. Now Brandi has given an extensive interview/statement to Us Weekly, which you can read here. Some highlights:

On LeAnn following her to Nobu: “They sat across the room from us just to hurt and torment me by using my own children as pawns.”

How everything has changed since she met her boyfriend Donald “DJ” Friese: “Since I met him, it’s been amplified to the utmost. I realized it’s time to speak up and say, ‘You don’t get to triangulate my children.’ LeAnn follows DJ on Snapchat and shows up where we’re at. She’s checking social media all day long. It’s ridiculous. Now that I have a partner, I can handle it, but it’s not fair to him. I’m like, ‘You’ve been in [your] relationship for nine years,
 leave me alone.’”

Her sons: “They love her and they love me. But being in a restaurant when Eddie and LeAnn come in, the kids are uncomfortable running back and forth between tables.”

Eddie’s priority: “He’s a kept man. He’s worked on a show for the past few seasons, but over the eight years, he hasn’t made much. He was refusing to pay me child support.” But it’s not just about the money.
 “I want Eddie to be responsible for our boys. I’m very happy right now and only ask for he and LeAnn to let me live my life.”

On Eddie’s “Brandi was drunk” story: “[That] does not explain why Leann and her assistant were both viewing my boyfriend’s Snapchats prior to our arrival at the restaurant. To justify your wife’s stalking of my boyfriend’s social media as you were ‘concerned’ as to what we might post seems a bit far fetched. I am not interested in this back and forth game. I am asking for them to leave us alone and not monitor our lives through social media and other methods.”

Yeah, I think what Brandi is saying is dead-on. This Uncool Bermuda Triangle had ebbs and flows, and for a while, Brandi and LeAnn were not having a lot of drama. But I could totally see how LeAnn would start acting extra crazy all of a sudden once Brandi developed a serious relationship. LeAnn would feel a mix of jealousy and… I don’t even know. LeAnn has issues, so I don’t even understand how her mind works, quite honestly. Anyway… on this, I’m still Team Brandi.

    Lmao. Brandi came out with the receipts, in my opinion it hurts Leann badly to be calling out like this, she can’t even defends herself properly it’s not like she isn’t guilty of that behaviour. She is being strangely silent. Maybe she didn’t predicts that Brandi would responds and exposes her in the press ?

  2. Izzy says:

    Why wouldn’t the boyfriend just block MeAnn on social media? If anyone says anything, the response is a clear winner: he doesn’t feel like being stalked.

    • Erinn says:

      I mean he could… but Leann is notorious for having multiple accounts on a single platform. Nothing to stop her from just creating another one.

    • Whatabout says:

      It’s probably better that they know which account is hers? So that they’re aware of when she’s watching their snaps.
      This has been bizarre. Leann tried to hire Brandis personal trainer, drs, and so on. I wonder what happened to make her be this way.

      • Izzy says:

        Everyone here made good points. I didn’t even think about that, and I should’ve known better, because it’s not like we don’t all know how unhinged MeAnn is when it comes to stalking Brandi. There’s literally years of photographic evidence of her SWFing.

    • Kitty says:

      He didn’t block her because she wasn’t following his Snapchat acct. Apparently, you don’t have to follow someone to see their Snaps. They only discovered that she watching after she showed up at Nobu.

      Anyway, LeAnn and her abusive Twitter posse, like Ginger, and others, have been blocked when discovered in his private social media accts. His Twitter and IG accts were both unlocked but LeAnn was stalking those and SWF his posts. So he made them private. For a short time he even deleted his Twitter acct he was so disturbed by her behavior and her fans.

      Just yesterday, LeAnn’s mom was discovered following Brandi’s IG and Dean’s sister’s Facebook accounts.

      It’s like a creepy family trait to stalk ex’s in that family.

      But yes, he did feel stalked. Who wouldn’t? As stated earlier, LeAnn has been SWFing his pics, topics, wording, emojis, since last year. Mostly, he feels for Brandi to have dealt with this type of harassment for so long. His main concern, is her and the boys.

      Oh, I forgot to add this, LeAnn even SWF one of his cars, a Tesla. She’s obsessed.

    • Shayne says:

      I don’t think Leann, nor her assistant, knew you can see who views your snapchats, at the time DJ discovered them watching his. No doubt Leann is now watching via a fake account.

    • starfish says:

      Seems like Leann has dirt bags that friend others. Guess when you don’t work, you can play on a computer all day, so can idiot.

  3. I Don't Know Her says:

    Can’t Fight The Moonlight I guess.

  4. Jennifer Hennessy says:

    Look! She is imitating the way Brandi is standing in that photo!

  5. Ainsley says:

    LeCrazy wants to feel like the “better” woman, she wants Brandi to stay stuck focused on losing Eddie. In her head I bet she thinks/wants Brandi to still be in love with Eddie and hung up and jealous, so the evidence of this not being the case is eating her up. How can can she rub her “victory” in Brandi’s face if Brandi isn’t paying attention?

    • Patricia says:

      Ding ding ding! I think you’re dead-on with why this relationship has riled up LeAnne’s crazy.

    • jenn12 says:

      In Leann’s silly mind, she has the man, she is equal to the kids’ mom. Now Eddie is dealing with another father figure, and DJ has kids, so it’s a true blended family, and out of their control. Leann and Eddie are about power and manipulation. They don’t get to go to the parties Brandi and DJ have, or go on the vacations, or attend the family things Brandi and DJ do. It’s what they have done to Brandi for years, and now that the shoe is on the other foot, they can hardly stand it. It reminds me of Charlie Sheen, and how he made Denise Richards look crazy and like a golddigger, but at some point the truth comes out (especially with how much evidence they have left over the years). The truth always does.

    • Jess says:

      Totally agree! I also think that Eddie and LeAnn will be married for a little while longer than he was married to Brandi, she’ll probably pay him extra to stay until she “beats” their marriage time, lol. There’s just no way those two are actually happy, happy people do not act the way they do and spend all day on various social media accounts.

    • Wesswe says:

      Wow, great analysis. LeeAnn no longer has what Brandi wants (Eddie), so that’s why she tries to focus on the children, because they are someone Brandi will not move on from.

  6. Angel says:

    Don’t know all the details but LeeAnn & Eddie cheated, lied about it, now they’re together. Fine. Did they bring the kids to a restaurant where Brandi was on a date? That’s trashy and they should know better. If they show up there with the kids and Brandi’s on a date, have some class and quietly excuse yourselves.

    • jenn12 says:

      Leann and her assistant didn’t know that who follows your snapchats shows up, and got caught stalking Brandi’s boyfriend’s social media over the course of several days. They saw where Brandi and her guy were going for dinner, and followed them there with the boys. The boys were really upset. Then Leann had their photos taken by Brandi’s guy’s car. SICK.

  7. Beth says:

    I’d be so embarrassed if I was acting like LeAnn. Being caught always spying on by man’s ex and following and copying everything thing she does would make me look bizarre, creepy, and insecure. Thank goodness I’m not insecure like LeAnn. She’s a weirdo and wouldn’t want her around kids . Team Brandi

  8. Alex says:

    Yea her explanation is exactly what I said yesterday. To stalk someone out of “concern”‘for what they MAY post is completely stupid.
    But lol that she called him a kept man. And shame on Eddie if he’s not paying his child support.

  9. L84Tea says:

    My brother-in-law’s fiance is like this. She contributed to helping break up my bro-in-law and sister-in-law’s marriage (because my bro in law did a lot of running around), and ever since she is OBSESSED with his ex-wife. She stalks her social media, she drives by her house, and even did a couple other things so shady I won’t even mention. It’s insane. I don’t understand the obsession. But I’m feeling that maybe part of the appeal of banging a slightly older (15 years difference) married man for her was the hurting his wife?? It’s just nuts. Luckily I only have to see this nutcase about once a year.

  10. RBC says:

    Serious question, but does Leann record or tour anymore? They seem to live a rather lavish lifestyle and Eddie hardly works. Where is the money coming from?

  11. Jess says:

    I think it’s hilarious that Brandi is calling them out, you can tell she’s kept her mouth shut long enough and just lost it and let it all out when LeAnn used the boys. I’d be doing the same thing, immature as hell but screw it, LeAnn lives for social media so you have to use her outlets right?

  12. AnnaKist says:

    LeAnn is obviously a nutter, but how about not posting your plans and whereabouts on social media? If Brandi and her bloke are on a date, there’s no necessity for her ex and LR to know when or where this is taking place. And as Izzy said, the boyfriend could just block unwanted followers. I don’t even have social media, but still know these things. It’s not hard if you really don’t want the drama.

    • Sonia says:

      Evidently LeAnn has many Twitter accounts under many names, so blocking the one that has her actual name doesn’t stop a rather unhinged person determined to stalk.
      I do agree that perhaps announcing where you are going to dinner could be done later, like a ” we had a great evening tonight at (insert restaurant)” and maybe the stalking wouldn’t be so bad. Maybe.

    • Kitty says:

      Really!? They are supposed to anticipate that LeAnn would stalk Brandi’s boyfriends’ Snapchat account. And that she would show up with the kids in tow?

      Come on. Normal people wouldn’t think of something like that. To steal a meme, they aren’t the crazy whisperers.

      They knew she was stalking, and from fake accounts. They’ve tried to block those accounts when discovered. That’s all normal people can do.

      Brandi called her out when LeAnn brought the kids into the mix. Because bringing it to the public’s attention is the only thing that has temporarily stopped their crazy in the past.

      And what’s being lost in all of this too. Is LeAnn and Ed blocked Brandi from attending an event, three hours before going. Why are they STILL messing with her career? These events are stupid papz opportunities but it keeps Brandi out in the public eye. And in eye of producers and casting agents.

      Once again, Ed is unemployed, and apparently, still hates paying child support. Even after finally having a job for a season.

      So why are they blocking the only working parent?

    • Izzy says:

      Yeah, actually, I have to retract what I said. We’re not dealing with the normal level of crazy here. MeAnn and her minions really pull out the subterfuge just to be able to stalk Brandi. It’s actually disturbing. So I don’t know that blocking them would work, because as several people have pointed out, they’d find a way to stalk them, using fake accounts or whatnot. CRAZY.

    • PamelaJudy says:

      From what i saw, they didn’t actually say “oh we’ll be at Nobu at XX time”. They both just posted vague things about having sushi in Malibu and ta da……

    • Ange says:

      I mentioned it on another post but social media is pretty important to reality show type people like Brandi. It keeps them accessible, it keeps them relevant and interesting (always important for the hustle for ongoing work) and it’s a good money spinner when they get paid to promote products. Going private would actually cost Brandi opportunities and money. She has to stay public and blocking the first WeWe account would just make 15 more show up in their place. The woman is like a grey hair.

    • Lilly says:

      She didn’t say what restaurant, Leann guessed it. And it really irritates me that the blame and the onus is put back on the victim. It is victim-blaming at it’s worst. Why SHOULD Brandi have to change the way she operates on social media? Why? Why is the onus on HER??? It is like, to me, those who blame a rape victim for drinking and say ‘well you shouldn’t drink’ ‘you shouldn’t go to clubs’ etc. We have to STOP with this the VICTIM has to change THEIR way of living mindset. Brandi is usually very careful, she never really lists the names of the places.

      How about instead of victim-blaming, how about you say Leann should not stalk? PERIOD. How about that?

      • Deanne says:

        You are completely right. It totally IS victim blaming and shaming. Apparently, Brandi should stay of all social media, tape her mouth shut for the sake of the kids and let Eddie and LeAnn privately abuse her, for the rest of her life, because that’s the classy thing to do. In a situation like this, there is NO high road. Not addressing the stalking and idiocy is accepting abusive behaviour and teaching the children that what LeAnn and Eddie do is normal and acceptable.

  13. Lillian says:

    Does anyone else think LeAnn and Eddie kind of look alike?

  14. Christin says:

    I realize this has been messy on all sides, but somehow it has a boring-yet-fascinating appeal. I can’t explain it.

    And I still think jealousy is at the root of this latest round of nonsense. When the boyfriend situation went past a few months, reality has set in for both L and E, and they can’t handle it (for whatever reason).

    • shannon says:

      Yes to your jealousy theory. Eddie is jealous because now there is another man in his boys’ lives, possibly a father figure in the future. Leann is jealous because she wants Brandi pining for Eddie and not able to move on. She is also jealous because Brandi has a man who can pay his own way. Leann can’t say the same, can she? And if Brandi isn’t crying about how Leann stole her husband, what good is he to her? What has she really won (which is how she sees it)? A loser hanger on husband that she pays for while Brandi is happy to have moved on from him. Not such a prize now.

  15. giulia says:

    Lol give ‘em hell, Brandi!

  16. Pumpkin Pie says:

    IMO Brandi should make a legal request so that MeAnn is not allowed contact with the children. And Eddiot, only supervised visits. She has plenty of evidence to support her request.

    • Chrissy says:

      Well since Eddie is not paying child support, maybe his visits should be reduced or cut altogether. Also Brandi could involve the police if this stalking continues. She has proof of all the stalking after all. Overall, Leanne needs to get a life and some mental health counselling and Eddie needs to get a job. They deserve each other.

  17. Shijel says:

    Someone above had it correct: LeAnn’s crazy has been released because Brandi getting a new boyfriend means that LeAnn’s snagging of Ediot from her has become relevant. Her “victory” loses its appeal when it becomes irrelevant to the ‘losing’ party.

    It probably won’t happen but I’m 100% sure that Lele would try to flirt with or even steal that new boyfriend. Not because she wants him, but because she wants to achieve yet another ‘victory’ over Brandi.

    Good on you, B. She plays the social game too but good on her for taking a strong stance against Lele crossing the line like this.

    • Christin says:

      I’ve had the same thought about trying to lure away the boyfriend or set up some type of ‘he’s cheating’ scenario, for the sake of hurtful competition. In their reality show, she was determined to beat her own ‘friends’ to the point of cheating.

  18. MeAnnandEddiesEpicLoveStoryIsAHoax says:

    Edna and Meann are like the dullest douches around. Even their lame retort was lamer than lame.

    Meann did Brandi a favour by taking this overgrown greaseball off her hands.

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      I think that is the real problem. Deep down inside LeAnn is regretting being saddled with Eddie and his sons. Her “victory” over Brandi has turned out to be a hollow one because Brandi is now doing well for a 40-something ex-model in Hollywood and is more famous as a result of her divorce. She has her TV shows, podcast, and a new, wealthy boyfriend. Meanwhile LeAnn has been on a downward spiral throughout her marriage to Eddie.

      • Sonia says:

        OH I think you are onto something. It can’t possibly be Leann’s fault that her career is in the toilet, it must be Darrell’s fault. She isn’t being lauded as the bestest step-mommy ever, that has to be someone’s fault also. Parenting isn’t easy, I imagine step parenting is even harder, especially when you don’t have the tools to be a normal happy human being in society. That’s her parents’ fault. Eddie isn’t the hot and in-demand actor she thought he would be, instead he’s an unemployed actor who drinks all day. That’s Eddie’s fault. She isn’t the workout queen she envisions herself to be, that’s got to be someone else’s fault. Probably her trainer’s fault. If she had one ounce of self awareness, she really could have it all. Remember the Patsy Cline tribute? The girl is/was so talented, it’s such a waste.

      • Lady D says:

        I hope you’re right, BearcatLawyer. She is stuck with him, because her massive ego couldn’t handle all the I-told-you-so’s, should she initiate divorce. She even lets him screw around at his leisure rather than divorce him. Gee, who wouldn’t envy Leanne?

  19. jenn12 says:

    It’s simple: Leann and Eddie like when Brandi is alone, and (in their sick minds) powerless. They don’t want her to have a partner, or provide the boys with another family, because it threatens them. They would like to create a lot of tension and misery and ruin Brandi’s relationship. She is with a good man who has a great job and his own kids. All the BS they’ve spewed over the years about blended families? They want Brandi on her own, like some accessory to her own sons’ lives. Sick and evil.

  20. WhatThe says:

    LeAnn is the forever homely girl always after the man out of her league, fame or not. She only snagged Ed because Brandi refused to allow him to come home once Scheana was added to the mix. He was cheating with Scheana at the same time he was sleeping with both his wife and Leann. What a life for him. Three women on the hook. Except Brandi threw in the towel and said I am out of here, and his ego couldn’t deal with a woman not wanting him. I really think he loved Brandi as much as he is capable of loving anyone, with an ego as big as his. Leann got him by default. She and everyone else paying attention knows it. Second, or even third choice. Gotta rankle the old “I am the special one” persona she carries around. Except for Dean, every man she’s ever been involved with cheated on her. She definately has a personality disorder, especially obvious as even though she’s been caught SWFing numerous time, she just cannot stop despite the humilation.

    • Jess says:

      Completely agree with everything. The only way her stalking/taunting makes sense is if LeAnn knows she wasn’t his first choice. I believe everything Brandi wrote in her book about Eddie asking her to take him back and he didn’t love LeAnn and wasn’t attracted to her because she’s ugly, etc. Her behavior does not add up with a person who is truly happy in their relationship, and I kind of think she’s so obsessed with social media because it keeps her mind away from the fact that Eddie is such a loser all around, the dude has barely worked and is a serial cheater, and from the snippets of their reality show I saw how he “jokes” with LeAnn and gaslights her too, it’s obvious she has a miserable life and she blames Brandi, and seeing Brandi get everything she deserves is making her obsession worse.

      That’s my take on it all, I’m so fascinated by this train wreck of a situation, LeAnn is just so mentally ill it’s shocking.

  21. Deanne says:

    Mason had his Grade 8 graduation yesterday and of course LeAnn posted up a storm. They interfered with his 14th birthday celebrations and cut out his Mother. I hope that they didn’t make this special day uncomfortable for Brandi or Mason. It isn’t Brandi’s responsibility to take their crap to keep the peace and the kids happy and in the dark. There’s absolutely no scenario where allowing yourself to be continually abused, is better for the children involved and what Eddie and LeAnn are doing to Brandi, is definitely abuse. Brandi finding a loving, wealthy, handsome, successful man seems to have pushed both of these losers over the edge.

    • Lady D says:

      Remember aalllll those people you mocked, harmed, and tried to destroy on your way to a happy life with Ediot, Leanne? They say be nice to people you meet on your way up because you will meet them again on your way down. I wonder how many people will welcome either of these two with open arms after their implosion? I’m sure she has loyal and true friends, you know, the friends she didn’t have to buy, who will be there for her, and he will have couches available to him everywhere he goes, or he should, right?

      • Deanne says:

        What are you saying? They are a power couple. Their careers are smoking hot, just like their love. They are rolling in money. They camp out in Walmart parking lots in their RV because they like it, not because they have to. I’m sure Eddie will always have Dave and LeAnn can go live with that rabid fan of hers who has the foot issues.

      • Christin says:

        Bragging about money is now like comparing a tiny takeout / slider burger to a high-end steak.

        Speaking of pals, wonder how the two fame-hungry friends feel now that L and E hardly get any press attention?

  22. Jennie Hix says:

    I like Brandi, but she needs to stop this self-sabotaging STAT. YES, Leanne and Eddie are f-ing with her, but she needs to control her reactions, otherwise she’s going to ruin her new relationship. Which I think is the point. I think Brandi doesn’t think a good guy will ever like Brandi, so she’s doing…this.

    • BB says:

      This. The high road. It might not pay off in the short run, it may not have the satisfaction of a good Twitter burn, but it’d be a long term investment in her relationship with her sons.

      • Deanne says:

        So silently suffering abuse and insanity is an investment in her relationship with her children? More so than their Mother killing herself to provide for them, while their Father lives off of his second wife? When he has paid the child support she’s owed, it’s been the lowest amount California allows. That’s how little he earns. He lives in a mansion, albeit a rundown, shabby one, but has actually refused to pay her what he owes, despite vacationing twice a month. There’s nothing positive for the kids in their Mother allowing herself to be staked, mistreated and abused. Nothing. LeAnn and Eddie are so much lower than the gutter in their behaviour, that there really is no such thing as a high road.

      • BB says:

        It’s been “six of one, half a dozen of the other” for a very long time between these two. There is a high road here, and it consists of not participating.

        It wasn’t all that long ago that Brandi was perfectly happy to stoke the constant back-and-forth sniping because it contributed to her “brand” and helped sell her tell-all books.

        If Rimes performs somewhere or releases music, Brandi comments. If Rimes gives an interview, Brandi comments. Rimes’ ex-husband writes a book, Brandi does a show with him. Every time Rimes posts something ridiculous on Insta-twat-book, Brandi has something to say about it. She’s gone out of her way to befriend Rimes’ “enemies,” even donating money to the woman Rimes was suing.

        Brandi is participating. And she needs to stop.

        Just about every time Brandi brings up her kids – when she isn’t calling them assholes in public, that is – we hear Cibrian’s a deadbeat, and Rimes is some Stepford Stepmother lying in wait to “Single White Female” Brandi out of her own family.

        Since Rimes will look like the pathetically insecure nut job the world knows by now that she is REGARDLESS of anything Brandi does or doesn’t say, it’s time for Brandi to finally do what countless lawyers (and Joanna Krupa) have been begging her to do for years: SHUT UP.

        And I’m sorry, but if you don’t want weirdos (or worse) showing up wherever you go, don’t tell the world where you’re going to be 24/7.

        If this were to escalate from verbal hair-pulling to actual criminal stalking – which it doesn’t, not even close, but if it were to, Brandi needs to handle her business, involve law enforcement and/or attorneys as necessary, and stop giving Rimes the satisfaction of yet another “I know you are, but what am I?” type of response.

        As far as issues of child support go, if Cibrian is not paying what his kids are owed, two words: Family Court.

        There are three adults here who are more interested in scoring points in some social media popularity contest than they are in the children they’re supposed to love and protect. Brandi could choose, right now, to make that two.

      • jenn12 says:

        Brandi is not perfect, and should control certain things, like commenting about their marriage. However, she hasn’t said much about them in several years. If you’ve ever dealt with these personalities, you know they do things quietly, under the table, and manipulate to look like victims. Leann and Eddie built an entire show around insulting Brandi, give endless interviews about “family” and how they are the victims, post pictures, favor cruel comments, and befriend people who harass Brandi right in public for everyone to see. Ginger, Amejean, and Dobbie both blatantly harassed Brandi, said they hoped terrible things would happen to her, and received Christmas cards from Leann, Eddie, and Brandi’s boys. Dobbie and Amjean hung out with Leann publicly. Two guys with F Brandi shirts were brought ONSTAGE at Leann’s concert with the boys backstage. And Brandi is supposed to sit with her hands folded and mouth shut to supposedly keep the peace?

      • Lilly says:

        BB, sorry but that is absolute rubbish. Brandi has hardly ever spoken about Leann, and never when she has had anything coming out. Seriously where are you getting this from??

        Secondly, I am sick and darn tired of this victim-blaming! Brandi has never spoken about these single white femaling/stalking incidents, until now. I mean, sure, twitter fans have kept score of the different outfits, tweets etc. But Brandi herself has never spoken about it. I think it is about time, and once you USE *INNOCENT CHILDREN*, all bets are off. As many, and I mean MANY have tweeted to her “about time you said something about Leann’s stalking!”, it IS about time and long overdue Brandi said what has been going on. I myself tweeted her and said ‘it’s about bloody time you spoke up, Brandi!!!’ I think Brandi chronicling this in public is for protection. And I think she is smart in doing so, and I believe her boyfriend told her to go public for that reason.

        She is the victim, she should not be told to shut up. It is DISGRACEFUL that people are telling the VICTIM to ‘keep quiet’. It is so wrong, and it also explains a lot about why rape victims/victims of molestation are blamed and told to keep quiet, too – if they’re not blamed for ‘asking for it’ for being drunk. It was long overdue for Brandi to tell the public these things. She has all told us about the affair and how Leann doesn’t respect boundaries, and how it hurts her to see photos of the holidays. BUT, she has NEVER told us all of the stalking and single white femaling she has gone through…….until now. She has showed admirable restraint for the last eight years, and the last thing we should be telling a victim is to ‘keep quiet’, ‘shut up’ or ‘take the high road’. Most people would have reached breaking point YEARS AGO, it is admirable Brandi held on *this* long. People do have their breaking point, and NO ONE should tell them to shut up. I can’t believe we are in 2017 sometimes, when we are *still* telling victims to ‘shut up’ and ‘take the high road’. Disgraceful.. I think Brandi took the high road for eight years. It has been eight years of her taking the ‘high road’ and it has made NO DIFFERENCE, in fact, if anything, it has made it worse! It is ENOUGH now already, and surely no one could begrudge her for finally having had enough, and wanting to get things on the public record?

    • Lilly says:

      It appears it is Brandi’s boyfriend DJ who is encouraging her to go public. He has finally given her the courage and that is a good thing.

    • Deanne says:

      She has a job. Multiple jobs and she’s worked her ass off to provide for her sons, Their Father on the other hand has spent most of the last 8 years unemployed and living off of the dwindling funds from his wife’s former glory days.

      Lol, she works her ass off on various tv shows, her wine collection, blog(another thing that LeAnn copied), and her books, she hustles hard and was a single parent. I’d say Eddie is the one who needs a job, homeboy has barely worked in 8 years and seems to vacation more than anything. At least LeAnn tries with her albums and “tours”, they haven’t been successful but bless her heart she does try!

    • Lilly says:

      Who, Leann? If so, yes, Leann does need a job. She barely works or makes any singing appearances at all. When she does, it is for 2 concerts or appearances, where she sings for 30 to 40 minutes each, then she needs to take a vacation! Leann doesn’t know what work is, you is so workshy, and lacks a good work ethic.

    I still don’t understand why Brandi doesn’t take legal action against LeAnn. Sue her for millions for emotional distress! It’s not like the three of them could get messier and at least then Brandi could put aside money for her kids to go to therapy.

  24. Deanne says:

    Eddie really is stupid. Almost every photo of him shows him drinking alcohol. Even during the day. He and LeAnn once again excluded Brandi from celebration festivities for Mason. They were doing tequila shots at his graduation dinner. Nothing says Grade 8 graduation like chugging tequila. How could Brandi have been fall down drunk and up at the crack of dawn the next day to take part in a charity race for skin cancer awareness? Oh, I know! it’s because they lied! Eddie’s the one who can’t keep a job. Maybe his drinking contributes to that. Also, someone pointed out that Nobu has a private entrance so that people can avoid the paps. Brandi and her boyfriend used that entrance, while LeAnn and Eddie paraded themselves and the kids past the photographers. Sure Eddie. Kid’s first. How much money does he make exploiting his sons?

    • Lady D says:

      The only pics of Ediot without a drink are when he is in an airport. Every other location, he has a drink. I wonder how soon after he gets up he has his first drink? Him at the pool with his bloody mary, her in her closet with the tequila.

      • Deanne says:

        Well Leann does keep a bottle of tequila in her purse at all times. That must be what gets Eddie from the car to the gate at the airport. Who in the hell carries a bottle of tequila with them at all times? And tells a magazine it’s always in her bag? It’s cruel, but the mental picture of Margie in the closet with her tequila makes me chuckle and you’re right. Ed does look like a Bloody Mary with breakfast kind of guy.

  25. Shannon says:

    I’ve dealt with similar, and I feel for her. That could seriously be the reason she started drinking so much (I mean, I have no idea, I don’t know her personally). But when I went through it, it was just after I had my second son and it was tortuous. I started drinking heavily and considered suicide. I couldn’t understand why I was being continuously targeted and scared. My older son was about 14 and he was ready to beat some ass, bless his heart. It was a rough time. I feel for her, and I don’t blame her for just calling it out in an attempt to end it. I did similar.

    • Deanne says:

      I’m so sorry that you went through that. Hopefully you’re on the other side and doing well. It always amazes me how people get on their high horse and tell people going through trauma how they should be behaving and responding. it’s usually always the ones who’ve never gone through anything even slightly similar themselves.

  26. why? says:

    The first mistake that these blogs make is thinking that Leann’s stalking of Brandi slows down or stops. Leann has never stopped taunting Brandi, she is constantly doing something to hurt Brandi, what slows down are the press reporting on Leann’s obsession with Brandi. When the blogs thought that Leann had stopped taunting Brandi, she was taunting Brandi by favoring the negative comments that her fans were making about Brandi. The second mistake is thinking that these statements defending Leann are coming from Eddie. According to Leann and Kiki’s tweets, Eddie can’t even be bothered to make reservations for Leann for Stepmother’s Day, so why are we expected to believe that he is going to make public comments defending Leann? Eddie’s statement sounds just like what Leann’s manager and his husband were always tweeting about Brandi.

    Leann is still taunting Brandi. Brandi’s son graduated yesterday and Leann and Eddie spent the whole day gloating that Brandi couldn’t be apart of the whole experience with her son. What type of person does things like this? Leann posted happy family photos from the car saying they were on there way to the graduation(Eddie took the photo, but Leann was the one who posted it to Eddie’s account), after the graduation, during the graduation(how insecure is Leann that she used her own stepson’s graduation to prove to everyone that Eddie loves her), and of their happy family celebration after the graduation(they had sushi, ice cream, and played chess). Leann made sure to tag each photo and video with family and love. At one point she even used the graduation to promote the single that she released last year, but is trying to sell as a new release.

    Remember how “Eddie” was criticizing Brandi for drinking, well last night Leann and Eddie were doing shots right in front of Brandi’s sons. Why isn’t the press calling Eddie out on his double standards and hypocrisy?

    Why isn’t the press calling Eddie out for his immaturity? He is jealous of Brandi’s boyfriend and his relationship with his kids and he is taking it out on Brandi in the worse way. What type of man uses his son’s graduation as a means to taunt their ex? It was his son’s graduation and Eddie couldn’t even mature enough to make it about his son, it had to be about excluding Brandi and then using Leann to rub it in Brandi’s face that she was excluded.

  27. BB says:

    “He’s a kept man.” LOL If that doesn’t pretty much sum up the situation…..Cibrian probably needs a microscope to locate his balls these days.

    That said, can SOMEBODY in this pile of pathetic manage to think about those kids for at least a minute? There has been enough “We see you, Rimes” publicity that we get it by now. We do.

    Now Brandi needs to suck it up and be there for her kids. It all has a way of coming out in the wash, one way or another.

  28. Lime says:

    Just came across Ilana Angel’s posts about Leann targeting her nonstop (with lawyers and the police!!!) after she wrote something unflattering about her.

  29. Jrock says:

    Can anyone suggest a good place to read blow-by-blow examples of the SWF stuff Leann has some? I looked through the archives here and found lots, but there’s so many, I got burned out and started only reading headlines. I thought there might be a good list somewhere.

    • Deanne says:

      wewedrama blogspot has tons
      or Copyingrimes on twitter.

      • Jrock says:

        Thank you!

        WeWeDrama stopped being updated in 2014, but it has a great blow-by-blow of LeAnn’s SWF BS. HOLY CRAP. If you’re looking for some concrete examples like I was, go here. There are photos and dates and all of this stalker craziness. I would bet my car that if this were shown to a judge, LeAnn would be labeled a dangerous person. Most damning is the bikini photo (exact same bikini, matched circle-shaped charm on a gold necklace, and matched bracelets, both worn on the same arm).

        This is giving me the chills now. Truly, this isn’t about shame, but Brandi’s safety. LeAnn is likely running out of money, and is paranoid about Eddie leaving when she does. Brandi’s not only doing fine in that department on her own, but is settling in to a relationship with someone for whom money is no object.

        I think LeAnn’s jealousy has been cranked up to 11, and paired with the paranoia about becoming single at her age (she hasn’t been single since she dated Andrew Keegan at 15 years old), with all the damage she’s done to herself to keep Eddie, this is a trend of someone that could be on the fast train to a breakdown, and I mean that honestly.

        At this point, there’s no reason to keep exposing the kids to her. She needs help, pain and simple. This latest foray into SWF ing Brandi and involving Eddie likely shows that he’s either on the same team and willing to lie, or he was lied to and allowed LeAnn used his social media presence to defend herself because she was desperate to fix this quickly. Now she’s losing followers faster than she could replace them, and it’s a train wreck.

        No one is paying attention to her in a positive way anymore. The amount of people willing to pay to see her is no longer conducive to paid touring engagements, and this sealed it. No one will want Eddie to work on their movie because his liability insurance has likely gone up due to this playing out in the media, on top of how LeAnn looks right now. Really, would YOU want to play his love interest in a movie? The jealousy and hanging around set and paranoia would just be too much, and a huge distraction.

        He’s not a big enough name too boo a movie with great funding, and time lost is money lost. She can’t keep her singing commitments now, so imagine how many sick days Eddie would use to get out of production in order to please LeAnn (“Pick me”). I think that would be a disaster.

        LeAnn needs to get the hell away from social media and get some real deep therapy for a long time. Get your mind in shape, fix your relationship with your husband and the kids and Brandi in order to have a real, healthy family. THEN try to earn trust back with the public so people will be willing to pay you to perform. As of now, both Eddie and LeAnn’s stars have fallen.

  30. Moonlampje says:

    I have nothing spectecular to contribute to this discussion, just wanted to point out that MeAnn looks more like a Who from Whoville each day. Especially in profile view.

  31. Penelope says:

    LeAnn is mentally ill, period. Brandi may be a loose cannon and obnoxious at times, but no one deserves what she’s endured at this stalker’s hands.

  32. Blackbetty says:

    I’ll never forget that bizarre cake Leanne had made. Where she was in bed with Eliot and the kids were waiting outside for them. Very odd and inappropriate!

  34. Jane says:

    This is certainly stirring up a some news in the gossip world. My salon has In Touch, US, Life/Style, OK and Star magazine covering it. A couple magazines are pegging Brandi to be unstable and cannot get over Eddie, while the others are on Brandi’s side- citing that Leann is the unstable one in the picture. Either way…all of them are messing with each other. Most of all the two boys are in the middle of this madness. Who is going to pay for their therapy bills when they need it?

  35. GoGo Congem says:

    They both seem like they have their own sh!t to deal with but here I call foul on Leanne and her, husband (who just can’t seem to let go of his first wife ) obviously making leanne nuts! First of all, if. Eddie and Leanne were soooo concerned about the kids and think Brandy is a drinker why on earth would you even subject them to having to witness it when its obviously your time with your boys! I guess its ok for you the kids to be in that situation but god forbid someone caught it on camera and put it on social media? Are you that kind of dad and step mother where they have to look like the perfect family when you are really selfishly playing with those children’s feelings! Get over it Leann. He had children before you and she will always be their mother first and foremost. Stop with the pissing contest and trying to elect yourself queen! One day they will grow up and recognize the manipulation for what it is! And Brandy..take it down a notch. I know you don’t feel like you are hurting the kids but by giving them an inch and throwing up how it makes you feel, they will continue to hurt them through you. I see it every day. I don’t usually bother ccommenting on anyone life but Leanness behavior when it comes to the length she so obviously goes to shadow and shade his ex wife makes the hair on the back of my hair stand up! She’s not right..In the head!

  36. Norma Warner says:

    After watching this for six years, Team Brandi 100%. Leann is nuts.

  37. Deesude says:

    It’s odd that some people choose to hate Brandi, based on a caricature of herself that she played on a highly staged, reality show, but give LeAnn and Eddie the benefit of a doubt, despite so much evidence of their douchery being available. Eddie and LeAnn are both proven liars. LeAnn’s manic behaviour toward her step-sons has been out in the open since day one. Their crapfest of a reality show focused on their mutual obsession with Brandi too, but Brandi threw some wine and stopped being LVP’s puppet, so she’s of course crazy and lying for drama in her real life. SMH.
