Brandi Glanville apologizes, loses credibility to Stepmother Superior LeAnn Rimes

As you can imagine, Brandi Glanville’s arrest for suspicion of DUI early Friday morning was possibly one of the best things that’s even happened to LeAnn Rimes. Brandi has been LeAnn’s nemesis for more than a year – personally, I think LeAnn decided to designate Brandi as her nemesis when LeAnn first realized that the married Eddie Cibrian was totally up for an affair, and LeAnn set out to systematically win Eddie over to The Dark Side (Team LeAnn). Sidenote: I have the strongest urge to refer to LeAnn’s “lair”. Anyway, Brandi was arrested, and released hours later, after which she tweeted her apology:

Brandi Glanville is making no excuses.

“I messed up,” Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife Tweeted on Friday following her DUI arrest. “I take full responsibility for my actions. I regret my bad choice, and am thankful to God that no one got hurt. I’m sorry.”

Glanville was released from jail at 8:30 a.m. Friday after being pulled over on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills.

Glanville was in the news last year when her then-husband Cibrian made public his relationship with country star LeAnn Rimes, who at the time was married to Dean Sheremet. Both marriages collapsed and Cibrian remains with Rimes.

Do you accept Brandi’s apology? I don’t, although I do think she’s probably honestly sorry, and honestly ashamed with being a drunk driver. It takes more than an apology on Twitter to make me forgive drunk driving. Brandi has lost a lot of credibility as “The Victim” and now LeAnn’s apologists can smear Brandi with nearly anything, and it will stick.

Just for fun, I checked out LeAnn’s Twitter to see her reaction to Brandi’s arrest. It’s always difficult for me to sort through LeAnn’s Twitter feed, just because she tweets non-stop for like 15 hours a day. There’s tons of nonsense that makes little to no sense to me, but I was able to find a couple of choice tweets. Responding (I think) to one of her follower’s questions about Brandi, LeAnn tweeted: “the boys were safe and with Eddie’s parents at our house.” And then later, “I didn’t take it that way at all. They were safe and with their grandparents. Let people judge all they want. They don’t know our lives. I understood what you were asking :) Oooh! LeAnn is Step-Mother Superior now! Let’s see… she also tweeted “honestly, I’ve had no anger, just disappointment in people’s lack of better judgement [sic].” Yes, because LeAnn’s judgment is so wonderful.

I tried to find Brandi’s Twitter feed, but I never know which one it is. Does she have multiples? Do her supporters name their feeds after her? Because if this one is Brandi’s, she really needs to get a grip too. They’re both pieces of work. Ugh.

    LeeAnn will get a DUI some day too, question is, when? When things go sour with Cibrian?

  2. jackie says:

    They both should be ashamed for lack of better judgement – one broke up a marriage with children. The other continues to engage in public disputes, and now been in jail regarding a DUI – Where do the kids fall in any of this!

    Because the only time I hear about them, is when Leann is using them as pawns for her own gain.

    Gross.

  3. photo jojo says:

    Dear Brandi, Your ex is a douche, he won’t stop being a douche, and your continued expectation of him to act like something other than a douche just leads to disappointment. Let it go. Signed, Been There.

    Brandi could never lose credibility to Leeann, after all the squinty eye stole her husband, ruined her family, leanne might be the reason for her down spiral, that’s just my opinion, I’ve been in Brandi’s shoes, that’s not something you get over, over night, and to have this home wrecker in your face constantly bragging,and tweeting on how great her life is, give Brandi a break,her humiliation will been over soon, she will be a stronger person, and Leeann will go through the same thing, she deserves someone like Eddie.

    ……………………………….

    Seriously, women like you make me sick. Imagine, you admit youve been in Brandi’s shoes, yet here you are demonstrating that youve learned absolutely nothing from the experience because you insist in believing that a man can be effing STOLEN!!!!

    When do you dumbazzes get a clue?

  6. Rita says:

    Brandi tweeted on twitter.com/brandiglanville that she accepted responsiblity for her actions, said she was sorry, and thanked God there was not an accident. What else should she do? She’s embarrassed and will pay a big fine.

    How does Brandi loose credibility? Eddie was suppose to have the kids that day but instead he dumped them with his parents so LeAnn could hold his leash for a concert on the east coast.

    DUI is terrible and most of us don’t have one because we simply didn’t get caught.

    This story is about two mean, manipulative, homewrecking, narcassits who for two years have flaunted their lust and taunted their victims for the publicity and pure pleasure of it. Nobody said Brandi was God’s gift as a role model. Let’s keep our eyes on the ball.

  7. brin says:

    No one condones what Brandi did but that she didn’t have the kids that week so people can’t put that on her. If Eddie was supposed to have the kids, why is he off with Leann and leaving them with his parents? He really is a douche & leann has him all to herself!

    “Do you accept Brandi’s apology? I don’t, although I do think she’s probably honestly sorry, and honestly ashamed with being a drunk driver. It takes more than an apology on Twitter to make me forgive drunk driving.”

    ITA. Drinking and Driving is just wrong, wrong, wrong.

    That isn’t her Twitter. I was curious once and checked out the tweets from BG supporters and LR supporters. Umm, its a little disturbing on both sides and I do not get why people are so invested in this situation.

    Yes cheating is wrong,but how long has it been? And so many others have cheated (Charlie Sheen, Jolie/Pitt, Kelsey Grammer, etc. etc). So what if LR tweets? Just ignore it and don’t buy her music.

    Maybe if the people who complained to Shape could put that energy towards complaining to CBS’s advertisers and get CS off tv.

  9. devilgirl says:

    I cannot stand Rimes, but I am so over people saying she “stole” Eddie from Brandi. People are not possessions, so you cannot steal something that is not owned, and no one can steal a man/woman from another.

    Where is the idea that Eddie was the one who cheated. He was the one who strayed. Sure, Leann made herself available, but he did not allow himself to be taken from someone else, he chose to go. End of story.

    And yes, I have been cheated on. So I know how it feels, but I also know no one was stolen from me, they went on their on accord.

    Speak for yourself. I have NEVER driven drunk, nor would I. I very rarely even have one drink if I’m driving, and I make sure if I do have one, it’s early in the evening, hours before I’m on the road. If I feel like tying one on, I do it at home or make sure there’s a designated driver.

    I’m just glad Brandi didn’t kill anybody. Hopefully she learns from this and commits to safe driving.
    She ought to forget about putting her business out on Twitter, too. Living well is the best revenge, truly.

  11. icantbelievethis says:

    “DUI is terrible and most of us don’t have one because we simply didn’t get caught. ”

    Umm, no, most of the people I know are careful NOT to get one. I spent alot of my single days as the DD, drinking 7up or Pepsi at the club. I’ve never driven after having more than 1 drink.EVER.

    “This story is about two mean, manipulative, homewrecking, narcassits who for two years have flaunted their lust and taunted their victims for the publicity and pure pleasure of it.”

    O.M.G. How long are people going to be pissed about this? Cheaters suck, but sheesh there’s alot worse that goes on in the world.

  12. Really Now says:

    @ #9 Exactly what is it that constitutes “cheating’ in your estimation, pray tell?

    I couldnt help but notice that youve lumped the Jolie-Pitts into your little selective list of so-called cheats, yet i dont see aniston’s name there. That is, if youre gonna insist that the JPs ‘cheated’.

    Because lets be clear: if a couple privately decides to end their marriage and to go on with their life with whomever they chose (as aniston and Pitt have said was their decision and agreement as a couple), then who are you to say either one of them is a ‘cheater’ because you see a photo of them and their new love?

    And where is your memory of the photos of aniston dry humping vince vaughn on their hotel balcony, which were published even BEFORE there were pix of Brad and Angie? Is she therefore not a “cheater” too, in your estimation?

    Or is your concept of ‘cheating’ only reserved for the male half of a couple and the woman he moves on with?

    Isnt it amazing how dumped women insist on blaming the woman their man moved on with his life with, as being the CAUSE of their own inadequacies.

  13. Rita says:

    @icantbelivethis #12

    “a lot worse goes on in this world”

    Tell that to Brandi and if you’ve never gotten behind the wheel the least bit impaired, good for you…you’ll pardon skepticism.

    When will people let this go? It shouldn’t even be a story but LeAnn refuses to STFU.

  14. DetRiotgirl says:

    Having just been in a car accident, I also think Brandi needs to do better than a twitter apology. I was in the passenger seat of my friend’s car when we went to make a totally legal left hand turn, when some idiot came racing through the red light and totaled my friend’s car. I got the brunt of the impact, had to spend a lot of last night in some random hospital in Staten Island and am now wearing a neck brace. I thank God though that the car hit us where it did. If she had hit us even three inches back, I probably wouldn’t be typing right now.

    Cars are really dangerous! And idiots behind the wheel triple the threat of accidents. Brandi should be more than “embarrassed” by this situation. I hope she learns something and doesn’t make the same mistake twice.

    As for Leann, meh. She’s trashy and crazy. But, we all already knew that. So, I don’t have much to say about her today.

  15. gee says:

    1 drink is a .05, dwai. They can pull you over for anything and test you for drinking. I’m not making an excuse for her because if you drink then you shouldn’t drive at all, but just beware.

  16. Katherine in NASHVILLE says:

    Ridiculous Headline.

    Rimes is so low, she can’t crawl under a rock.

    Brandi is a wonderful mother.

    No doubt having a very bad year, ALL DUE to Rimes.

  17. malachais says:

    Yeah I sincerely hope that isn’t Brandi’s twitter feed, good grief. My question was Why the f*ck did Brandi feel the need to apologize on twitter? Seriously?? She’s not a celebrity, this woman is insane, everyone involved in this mess is. I honestly don’t know who’s worse here. Eddie must love drama in his life, poor kids.

    As for Leann, stop talking about how you met Eddie, and stop trying to be so diplomatic about the whole situation – everyone knows! Guess what? You’ll always be judged for it- you’re a celebrity… its not right, but the negativity will linger for a long time. I swear this is the only thing keeping her relevant for the moment.

  18. Sarajane says:

    Uh, this is Brandi’s twitter:
    https://twitter.com/BrandiGlanville

    Found the link on People.com.

  19. devilgirl says:

    Sorry Katherine in Nashville, but you cannot blame a DUI on Rimes. That is an excuse. People, regardless of the troubles they have in their lives, know not to drink and drive, so whatever is happening in her personal life is no excuse for getting behind the wheel after drinking. If you drink, have the smarts to take a cab home or ask someone to drive you. Personal problems are never an excuse for reckless behavior that could potentially hurt someone else.

  20. Rita says:

    @devilgirl

    I totally agree with you. No excuse for Brandi’s bad judgement or LeAnn’s bad judgement last year after her hit and run accident following a day of boozing with Eddie. I guess in LeAnn’s case the boozing along with the hit and run constitutes two bad judgements but I’ve lost count with her.

  21. Kaiser says:

    Thank you Sarah Jane! That Twitter is a lot less scary.

  22. bros says:

    dlisted calls leanne Falcor’s constipated cousin or something. apropos entirely. she looks exactly like that flying thing from the never ending story.

  23. mauweebound says:

    @ #6 to the 2nd comment , it’s not about “stealing someone’s man” you are correct you technically can’t steal a man but the point is you should never go trash digging in another woman’s marriage! Period ! I don’t care how “unhappy” he is. you go digging in the trash, do you really expect to come out with anything else?

  24. judy says:

    SO did Leeann go to jail for theft?? I mean she STOLE a husband , that was cheating with 3 otgher women at the same time but Leeann “stole him” AND broke up a disfucntional marriage ? lol
    Leeasn didnht steal anyone, good opld cheating Eddie left because Lee had more money and talent then his has been wife who has a drinking problem. Gee is maybe her boozing got anything to do with his palying around? Eddie left on his own, apparently he didnt love the ex anymore . So instead of staying in a unhappy marriage he left. You cannot “steal” another human being unless you call it kidnapping and you go to jail for that. Get over the fact that men leave, women leave and they do it all on their own. P:eople with narrow minds such as those that think a man can be stolen from his wife may wake up some morning and find out your spouse has also “moved on’ and can’t say that I blame them.

  25. jzhz says:

    You can’t “steal” a person from someone else. They go willingly, or not at all. I think it was wrong for her to even entertain being with someone who was married, but I’m getting tired of all the hate for her – she really seems to take the brunt of it, more than Cibrian. Also – this is how relationships with people go. There’s no guarantee of forever in relationships, and sometimes, people find a better match elsewhere. Move. On.

  26. Rita says:

    I agree that its inaccurate to say LeAnn stole Eddie. She’s bought him a mountain bike, clothes, jewelry, takes him on luxury vacations, flies him in a private jet, provides him with $500 bottles of vodka, bought him a $5,000,000 home, pays his daily living expenses, provides for his children, gets him acting roles, and provides first class accomodations for him on tour.

    No, LeAnn didn’t steal him but there’s no doubt she bought and paid for the SOB.

  27. dovesgate says:

    No, Falcor was adorable. LeAnne, not so much.

  28. TG says:

    @ #1 – I was thinking the same thing. Just wait tell Eddie leaves her and she will be driving around drunk all over LA down the wrong side of the freeway.

  29. Rita says:

    There is a reason for LeAnn being the most insecure female on the planet. While Eddie was boning her on the set he was filling her with so much crap she couldn’t smell the stink. This went on for months until she realized Eddie wasn’t going to leave Brandi. It was then LeAnn made her move with her money and influence. All the while, Eddie didn’t lift a finger in her direction nor has he publicly shown her his “love” but instead has already cheated on her three times. For the rest of her life, this will fester in LeAnn’s insecurity. Basicaly, Eddie simply washed up on LeAnn’s beach and she’s trying to convince herself that he’s fresh blue fin tuna, sushi to the rescue.

  30. jc126 says:

    #26, Leann Rimes absolutely gets more criticism than Cibrian. I seriously wonder if Brandi is having her friends post here today, because I’ve never seen so many rationalizations for a DRUNK DRIVER who might have killed someone. I don’t want to tar and feather Brandi, I just want her to be glad she didn’t kill anybody and commit to never drunk driving again.
    I have to say, the endless “defend Brandi and slam Leann” is tiresome. No one’s “okay” with infidelity, but good grief, how can you get so wrapped up in someone else’s marriage? I really think people are projecting their own insecurities, and feel like if they don’t vigorously slam Leann (yet strangely not Eddie as much), somehow they’ll be vulnerable to a woman “stealing” their guy?

  31. devilgirl says:

    Actually Rita, Eddie has lost work since being with LeAnn, so I am not sure where you get she has gotten him acting roles. Besides, that doesn’t say much for EDDIE, if he is lured away from his family with money and toys. Instead of always bashing her, maybe people should look at the man who was lured away by such triffles.

    I don’t say LeAnn is an angel, because she clearly is not, but people seem to gloss over Eddie’s role in this matter. Both are cheaters and there is not one that is worse than the other. They are on equal footing in that department.

  32. di butler says:

    Did Julia Roberts get this much crap when she was trashing her man’s ex? Remember her ” A Low Vera” t-shirt? She was really nasty to her and that seemed to blow right over because she was supposedly “America’s Sweetheart” or some such ridiculous sh*t. So LeeAnn is a skank. Fits right in w/ the rest of H’wood.

  33. joann says:

    What Brandi did was wrong but she has said she was wrong and apolagized and taken responsibility for her actions unlike Leann who always plays the victim just as when Edddie fell down in front of her and his wandering dick landed in her vagina. She was not responsible for that it was a MISTAKE. and lets not forget that last year Leann was involved in a hit and run and she was the one who hit and ran. and as for Eddie, when this happened with Brandi, Eddie was supposed to have the boys but he left them for 4 days with his parents so he could fly around with Leann, play football watch football and drink Now thats a real Dad he should have been at home with his boys tossing around a football. He is a 37 year old man who is with a woman who acts like she is 12. watch me sing, Eddie, watch me play football, Eddie Both of tham self centered brats Eddie is having the time of his life and not having to work unless you count doing the nasty puppy with Leann work

  34. irena NL says:

    Brandi tried to make Eddie look bad again by saying it was his turn to have the kids but they were with his parents. Yes, the boys were at LeAnn and Eddie’s home with Eddie’s parents.

    In the court docs Eddie spoke of how the boys spent every other weekend at his parents home and that they were at his home several days every week taking are of those boys as well as doing other things while he and Brandi were married.

    So it was good BG owned up BUT she twisted the knife once again. Not over it quite yet!

  35. Whitey Fisk says:

    Rita said: “DUI is terrible and most of us don’t have one because we simply didn’t get caught.”

    As a couple of other posters noted, this is an untrue statement. Don’t try to make yourself feel better about your bad choices by using the “Everybody’s Doin’ It” defense. Everybody’s NOT doin’ it. Selfish, unintelligent, irresponsible people are doin’ it.

    So, Rita, YOU don’t have a DUI because YOU’VE never been caught. I don’t have a DUI because I’ve never driven drunk. I do everything I can to avoid hurting you or anyone else, even when it’s inconvenient for me. I’d appreciate if you’d do me the same courtesy.

    In my opinion, Leann still wins the b!tch top prize, but Brandi’s running a close second.

  36. Shelley says:

    Oh do not even go here. Being DUI and not hurting or killing someone is – as Brandi said – something to be very thankful for. Driving drunk is not even in the same ballpark as committing adultery.

    I thought Brandi’s apology was decent enough. I don’t know anything about her or if she has a drinking problem though. And clearly LR hasn’t taken to Twitter to gloat over this serious crime, yet she gets no ‘credit’ from you guys for not doing so.

    Is it even slightly possible that LR and EC are among the other people in the world who leave unhappy marriages because they fell in love with someone else? Is it possible one or both marriages were miserable for all the parties but for any or all of a thousand reasons, the people in those marriages were trying/hoping to work it out, and/or didn’t know how to leave? I am just asking – unlike some of you, I’m not a fly on the wall of these peoples’ lives.

    Who are the three people EC has cheated on LR with? How so you guys know all this about them?!

  37. KatScorp says:

    Isn’t there a blog-post at Celebitchy that is less than a week old, showing a vid wherein an obviously intoxicated Eddie and LeAnn do a TMZ interview outside a club? As I recall, LeAnn ran off after some random guy who didn’t know who she was… and then LeAnn and two others climbed into a car that Drunk Eddie DRIVES!!! Not only did Eddie drive drunk – and not only was LeAnn perfectly happy for Eddie to drive whilst undeniably intoxicated – but it happened less than a week ago. So just because the ex was caught doesn’t give LeAnn any points in the superior column. Frankly, Eddie drove drunk with three people in his vehicle so the Brandi/LeAnn/Eddie columns are pretty damn equal.

    Oh wait. Neither LeAnn nor Eddie apologised the next dayfor happily risking other road users’ lives. Because they weren’t caught. Could someone tweet-slap LeAnn about that… or at least link the TMZ video over at Twitter?

  38. icantbelievethis says:

    “Tell that to Brandi and if you’ve never gotten behind the wheel the least bit impaired, good for you…you’ll pardon skepticism.”

    If this is the worse Brandi goes through in her life, she’s doing pretty good. Besides Brandi has said she’s over it, it is others not associated with the marriage that can’t let it go.

    Nope, never came close to drinking and driving. I rarely drink and there was only once I had more than one drink at a club and I walked home.

  39. Cakes says:

    You can be charged with a DUI even if your BAC is under .08. All the officer needs is a reason why the amount of alcohol found in your system impaired your judgement. So even if you had one drink and your BAC is .04 if an officer feels like that small amount of alcohol impaired your judgement, you can get a DUI.
    I think that driving drunk is wrong. She got caught shes being punished and she apologized. Thankfully no one was hurt so theres really nothing else she can do. Im not going to take a hard stance unless she does it again.

  40. Carrie says:

    OK, I am not saying that LeAnn has handled her situation with class, because she hasn’t- it’s tacky to crow about your new love when that love happened in the middle of two marriages, and two other people were hurt by it (Dean and Brandi, and the kids). So no, I don’t like LeAnn or Eddie.

    HOWEVER, Brandi choosing to drive while intoxicated is squarely on Brandi- this has nothing to do with either Eddie or LeAnn. Nobody but Brandi is to blame for this poor decision.

    I’m a newer prosecutor so I handle mostly assault and DUII cases, and let me tell you- my first month on the job I assisted on a DUII case where a drunk driver hit a car and killed a little girl. At sentencing the mother of that little girl came forward and read a letter to the defendant, and every single person in that courtroom was crying. People die from drunk drivers every day, and it should never be excused.

  41. Darla says:

    I was just watching Dr. Phil, and he was aying that the divorce rate for cheating ho’s that say “I do” is pretty darn high, because each of them already know the other is a cheating lying scumbag. I wonder how happy Eddie will continue to be when Leanne starts to act more and more like a wife. I think money is the only reason he’s still with her.

  42. Henriette says:

    All 3 of them are douches. I just pity the children.

  43. roguesiren says:

    Leann didn’t steal Eddie, she bought him. Just like Brittney bought Kevin from Shar Jackson when she was pregnant.

  44. Cletus says:

    WOW, this thread is GREAT. For the record, I agree with the people who say that a man can’t be stolen. That is just SILLY. Also, GODDAMN IT, LEANN RIMES IS A BEAST.

    I feel kind of sorry for that Brandi person, though. I’m glad she didn’t hurt anyone and hopefully she’ll never do it again. People do weird shit when their lives are in the toilet…. maybe she’s depressed and can’t act right because her husband ran off with another DUDE.

  45. charmed says:

    brandi messed up yeah! every body messes up at some point she could have kill some 1 she was lucky! leann cheated right but her actions is not dangerous as brandi s! so ppl if u r really going to judge somebody it should be brandi!! better and all leave all of them alone! just let it go! its been over 1.5 years! leann and eddie happy let them be!!

  46. OXA says:

    Brandi got busted in Beverly Hills which is nowhere near her home in Calabasas. To get there one has to take really busy surface streets, get to then travel ln 2 of the busiest freeways in California just to get to her off ramp let alone her home. Drunks have no business getting behind the wheel and endagering others lives.

  47. mike says:

    Homewrecking =/ DUI.
    Not even close.

    Seriously. Homewrecking is between three consenting adults, with everyone at fault. Cibrian shouldn’t have strayed, LeAnn shouldn’t have gone for a married man, AND Brandi should’ve been a better wife. Love is a two way street, and maybe, just maybe Cibrian strayed because Brandi was a boozying frigid b-i-t-c-h?

    On the other hand, DUI is all on the one person. Ain’t nobody’s fault but the criminal who almost get others killed or maimed. Nothing complicated here. The sore loser Brandi messed up and got caught. End of the story.

    Cheating kills no one, unless the cheated decides revenge should be literal. On the other hand, DUIs every year leads to hundreds of deaths, because scumbags like Brandi think they’re too “good” to be caught.

  48. Debra says:

    Irena:.

    Brandi didn’t make that statement to make Eddie look bad…(lord knows he does that well on his own)…she made it because some nitwits were questioning her about how she could leave the boys when she only has them 50% of the time..so she explained that it was eddie’s turn and she doesn’t leave the boys when its her turn…she said nothing about them being with the grandparents at all…that came from the twitter-freak Leann, so if Eddie looks bad it’s because he left the boys (again) to follow his piece around the country

    and i agree that drinking and driving is wrong, it was also wrong of EC to get behind the wheel of his car after partying at a bar all night..and dont try to say he drank ginger-ale all night…lmao

  49. JJ says:

    I believe there are 2 separate issues.
    Brandi was wrong in her actions and will adhere to the courts punishment. The other issue is the constant tweeting of Ms Rimes about her fairy tale life. Just look at her twitpic from last nite with EC on bended knee. There have been comparisons of this affair with Angelina/Brad, Julia Roberts and on and on. The difference is those couples at least had some discretion. With Ms. Rimes none. Brandi was a housewife thrust into this mess and is now the subject of hatred and bullying by LR followers or paid reps. Ms. Rimes is classic passive aggresive personality. She bought herself Brandi’s family and now spews blessings mixed with inferred digs at Brandi.

  50. brin says:

    @JJ….Well said. Leann is keeping this situation going with her constant tweets & photo ops. She has no shame.

  51. George says:

    Brandi’s “Victim” status has NOTHING to do with her Driving Record! DUI no worse than Texting or have Cell Phone conversation while driving-all to be avoided-all potentially lethal-MOST people do though. We all know about LeAnn’s Texting – remember The Hoff text.

  52. Jezi says:

    Brandi apologized on twitter for the simple fact is that’s where people follow her, she also apologized on her Facebook page. Brandi was sincere in her apology and really was embarassed by her actions. It takes a big person to apologize and not make justifications. I still think Leann is a dipsh*t and this doesn’t change my opinion of either women. Brandi was wrong, she knew it, accepted responsibility. Leann will never admit she was wrong for her behavior, she says it’s god’s will. So to me, just goes to show what type of person she is. Not to mention a woman with total lack of morals should not be giving speeches about lack of judgment. Just my opinion.

    I guess I don’t understand the implication by the author of this story that because Brandi has done something wrong this somehow makes Leann look better. Do we have to pick a clear good one and bad one? Can’t we simply dislike them both? Or in my case, all three of them. I dislike Leann the most because she’s the one trying the hardest to pretend to be holier-than-thou despite the horrible things she’s done. Eddie is next in line because he also tries to play the I’m-so-perfect card, but he bugs me less than Leann because, unlike her, there are at least a few minutes in the day when he manages to keep his mouth shut. So Brandi is the one who bugs me the least, but only by default. They’re all annoying. They’re all behaving like 12-year-olds on the playground. And my fondest wish is for all three of them to go away and never be heard from again.

    @Irena when you are married the only real break you get is when the grandparents watch the kids or you get babysitters. I don’t know any married couple who hasn’t used the grandparents for that purpose. Some grandparents can actually go to court and get grandparents rights. However, once you are divorced and split custody, you get that break when the other parent gets the child. Plus you lose out on time with your child or children 50% of the time. Which means when you do have them, you often want to see them. Eddie passes them off when he only sees them 50% of the time and he does it so he can follow his girlfriend around. It’s not really the same thing when you are married to the mother of your children. Brandi wasn’t making that dig at Eddie’s parenting, she was getting questioned about where the boys were and didn’t want people concerned that they were with her. She points out that they weren’t and when she has her boys she’s with them. If Leann’s fans want to read between the lines of all of Brandi’s tweets then so be it. At this point it doesn’t matter what Brandi says because they will think that way regardless.

    @#6, (really now), are you leeann’s mother? let me be clear, i do not clear bandi of anything, DUI is awful,she could have killed someone, but home wrecker Leeann and douched Eddie helped caused some of brandi’s problems, no, a man cannot be stolen, but he can be enticed, initiated, seduced away from his maybe/maybe not troubled marriage, is that better?, i stand by my statements, now Leeann,STFU, you got your man that you paid for, now disappear already.

    Oh NO! My girl Brandi got a DUI!!!! I feel sorry for her (guilt, charged, reformed, sober). It is a terrible ordeal and I hope it is the LAST time she ever drives with ANY substance in her system. Because her kids are way more important than this divorced gal freedom that we all need during/following a hideous divorce.

    Leann better treat gently on this, because she is in NO POSITION to judge the mother of her lover’s children.

  58. Jezi says:

    Actually Leann already made a comment about Brandi’s lack of judgment. That she was disappointed but not angry. As if she has any right to talk about moral judgments.

  59. why? says:

    I am confused here. Didn’t this site post a video of Eddie getting behind the wheel AFTER he had been drinking? And we know that he was drinking because Leann posted a photo of them holding the glasses of alcohol in their hands. So why is it okay for Eddie and Leann to get behind the wheel after drinking and driving, which we have seen them to many times over and over. I remember one article from OK that said that they were drinking and then on JJ they are spotted getting into a car. I also remember a photo of EC and LR with the kids and in the background are bottles of beer. So do EC and LR get a free pass because they didn’t get caught or because their MONEY makes things like this go away. BTW, where did all of these LR supporters come from? Sounds like LR is doing some major damage control.

  60. Kim says:

    She womaned up and apologized. It doesnt excuse her behavior but at least she didnt lie about her part and apologized. LeAnn never apologized for having an affair with a married man so i dont think Brandi loses face here (to Leann that is).

  61. Jeri says:

    I’m sure Brandi will be prosecuted to the full letter of the law, no Lohan treatment for her. She’ll be in court, a rehab program of some sort and probation, not to mention the restrictions on her license and insurance.

    Her life will change. I’m not saying it’s OK, but I think it’s part of the trickle down effect of the changes to her world.

    You’re welcome, Kaiser. :) I actually try to avoid Twitter like the freaking plague. Too much over-sharing, bad grammar and general crazy for me.
