LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian told his sons all about their affair, of course

FFN_LeAnn_Eddie_KET_071714_51480046

You will never believe what happened. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian gave an interview to Life & Style about his kids and how they (LR & EC) told his kids about the affair that ended both LeAnn’s marriage and Eddie’s marriage. I know, shocking. So, it’s full circle at the moment. Eddie’s sons get to read about their parents endless shenanigans, then they get the information verified by LeAnn and Eddie, then the kids get to read about how they got the information verified in the press. The famewhore circle is complete.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian may have been famously married to other people when they fell in love and started a torrid affair in 2009, but in an exclusive interview with Life & Style, the couple reveals they have told Eddie’s children all about the affair.

“We’ve had discussions with them about the whole situation,” Eddie says in the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now, of their honesty with Mason, 11, and Jake, 7, about their infidelity. “They understand more than you think they do,” LeAnn adds.

Being part of a blended family can be challenging, but LeAnn and Eddie found a way to make it work: therapy. Eddie tells the mag that when he and LeAnn first got together, they went to counseling “to figure out how to put the kids first, to make sure they’re stable.” LeAnn’s sure it’s helped, and she’s a doting stepmom to his kids. “We are always bettering ourselves,” she notes in the interview, “and our marriage.”

[From Life & Style]

I’ll agree that kids understand more than their parents believe they understand. Kids know when mom & dad are fighting. They know when divorce is on the table. They know when mom or dad is fooling around too. But I just wish that both Brandi and Eddie would stop using those kids as publicity tools. I wish they would stop talking about them in the press, full-stop. This stuff is private. They shouldn’t splash this information around in the media.

Also, those kids are going to figure out (if they haven’t already) that their stepmom is crazy. Those poor boys.

    Ah God…..
    So how did they explain ‘double adultery’ to two children. They should be ashamed of themselves. Disgusting creatures. I feel sorry for those two boys. All three adults can seem to stop embarrassing themselves at their expense.
    I’ll be first in line for Mason and jake’s tell all book

    • Snazzy says:

      That book would be hilarious to read!!

    • Christin says:

      That book would be epic. It’s the one and only book I want to read in the future from this bunch.

    • aaa says:

      I can’t wait Mason and Jake’s book, especially the chapters about their crazy, drunk, narcissistic mother. We’ll see what Mason has to say about his mother posting pictures of him in hospital beds and sharing that she wipes his backside, and then there’s Jake sharing his side of the story in his relationship with his mother, her side is that seven year old Jake is a d— and an asshole. I wonder what his side is? I also wonder what words he will use to describe her?

      • betty says:

        @aaa You can bash Brandi all you like.But these two will use kids to try and push this crapshoot of a show. Brandi at her worse would never stoop as low as these two have gone. Most parents want their kids to respect them growing up But telling your kids you and their bonus mom had an affair while married that led to the breakup of their home is revolting. Only parents that have no respect for themselves or kids do that. How can kids respect or listen to you when you told them you broke the rules. Brandi is no saint by any means, But her actions did not change the the course of the kids lives . Eddie did with Leann help. This is just another example of selfish and entitled people that bears no shame about what they have done to stunt the growth of their kids. This will come back and bite Eddie in the butt big time.

      • aaa says:

        @betty,
        I don’t agree with Eddie and Leann discussing the affair, the boys and Brandi, but nothing that Eddie and Leann comes even close to the actions of Brandi Glanville as it relates to her sons, e.g., posting pictures of Mason in his hospital bed MORE THAN ONCE, posting pictures of her sons in their underwear MORE THAN ONCE, calling Jake a d—, asshole and discussing his sexually inappropriate behavior, and publicizing that she wipes her sons’ backsides.

        As far as Eddie and Leann breaking the rules, IMO Eddie and Leann should try to show some remorse for their actions, or at least not celebrate it, but let’s not fool ourselves, Brandi and Eddie had a very screwed up marriage which no doubt affected their family life, and however which way that screwed up marriage ended, it’s a good thing that it ended.

      • Jenny12 says:

        Brandi and Eddie were married. She didn’t trick Eddie into having kids or getting married and if he was that unhappy, he should have left her. Cheating rampantly is not the fault of the person being cheated on. What did Dean do to deserve it, I wonder? I don’t agree with underwear shots, but I know a lot of people who do it, considering it no big deal. And people joke about their kids all the time- see Louis CK or Tina Fey. Brandi was not in a rage when she said it; she was joking around. I always joke I have a librarian and a stripper. My friend, who adores her kids, will say about her son’s refusing to do his homework, “That little bastard….” I mean, come on. Leann and Eddie have used those boys for publicity and exposed them to inappropriate behavior. Wiping your kid’s backside seems tame compared to Leann posting a video of Jake on his bike without training wheels for the first time, with no helmet, on a busy road, exhorting him to go faster and taping it instead of running beside him. Or having the boys on a speedboat without life jackets. Or getting them BB guns. Or introducing them to her mentally unstable fans, many of who loathe their mother. Or posting the name of their school. Or calling paparazzi to every game they have so that everyone knows the names of their teams and when/where they play. Safety first, eh?

      • michele says:

        @aaa :

        Children love their mother you LeAnn “Stan” wanna be…..or is this LeAnn?

        Dream on and get real, you must not be a mother. Children love their mothers unconditionally, especially boys with their mothers.

        The only ones they’re going to harshly judge is that step monster and their loser father. LeAnn however won’t around long enough because this marriage is nearly over. Even Eddie’s parents allegedly don’t like how they talk about Brandi.

  2. lisa2 says:

    They said the kids asked. Which I can understand especially considering the relationship between the adults involved. Nothing wrong with being honest with children and telling them about what happened in a way that they can understand considering their ages.

    Better to come from their parent than reading it online and gossip sites. I can’t imagine how hurtful that would be for children.

    • Anthea says:

      OK, fine. I get that. But they shouldn’t now be talking about ‘that’ conversation.

      It’s not the affair itself with this pair, it’s the going on, and on, and on, and on, and on about the whole thing that people seem really p***ed about. Not to mention the fact that I suspect they’re paying for advertorials in the DM to sustain the press interest in the whole miserable set of shenanigans.

      • aaa says:

        Judging by the comments, Daily Mail’s posts about Leann are quite popular, DM could be paying her.

      • ya says:

        aaa, exactly — I’m sure that LR is making decent money from all of this hater attention.

      • claire says:

        I agree – kids are going to ask. It just bugs me that Leann exploits them as much as she does and Eddie has allowed it all these years. Now he’s doing his own press showing he’s been ok all along with her antics. Just gross. But on top of that, Leann is constantly speaking for those children, or making comments where she seems to be saying she will be making decisions for their future. She needs to step back. That is not her place. I know that’s hard for a narcissist like her to understand, but she is not an equal parent. And I’m not attacking stepmoms, this is just truly the case with these two children with alive parents and 50/50 custody.

      • Jenny12 says:

        Those two idiots have not stopped using the boys to promote their show. They stop short of having them on it since they blocked Brandi, but they use their pictures in the introduction, on the website promoting the show, and they haven’t stopped talking about the boys in interviews. It’s revolting. And Leann did not need to be a part of that talk- their PARENTS did. Furthermore, they did not need to explain all the crap and confirm it- stop talking in public and the kids won’t need to see it. Those poor kids. Maybe Jake asked about the songs from her affair album Leann taught him? I remember Darrell Brown announcing he was going to have a talk with the boys and let them know how things really are. WTF? Brandi is no saint, I get that, but what this woman lives with daily makes her get a whole lot of leeway in my book.

    • anon33 says:

      Here’s some reality. My parents both cheated on each other when I was in middle school, and yeah, I totally knew what was happening. But when I asked them, they told me in no uncertain terms that it was none of my buisness and that I wasn’t old enough to understand, which is true, and which I understand more and more the older I get. Some things SHOULD BE off limits. There is a line between confirming these things and explaining EVERYTHING that happened. I think them telling the boys “everything” (meaning, beyond just confirming that whatever they thought happened, happened) is horrifically inappropriate.

    • MW says:

      Lisa2 – I agree. Better than what my parents did. Basically forced me to take sides, act as scapegoat when they were fighting, have to be on-guard all of the time to cover for my mom, in case my mom did something stupid and was about to get caught … I was a wreck. They finally split and never acted like this could have possibly affected us, or talked about it, or apologized. I could go on and on, but it still makes me sick to think about.

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    They went to therapy to figure out how to put the kids first. I see. I guess the therapist told LeAnn to start a brutal bullying campaign against their mother, copy everything she did and write an album full of songs about how she just couldn’t resist sex with their father while he was married to their mother.

    “We are always bettering ourselves.” I see. Well, that shouldn’t be hard since they are both about as low as a human can go without physically hurting someone. Ugh, these two.

    • Erinn says:

      They’re just so stupid that it gets tiring. They’re never going to realize that they’re morons.

    • Christin says:

      This may have been the co-parenting therapy that Brandi described in her first book. Bonus mom allegedly insisted on selecting the therapist and teetered in on high heels and made up to the max as she clung to her prized catch.

      • Macey says:

        I think it was also at these sessions that LR tried to strong arm BG into signing a ND agreement. If I remember correctly she signed one for the counseling sessions only and said she came out feeling vindicated. I think that was all she could say about it but it sounded like the counselor put LR in her place.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        I have known more than one person going through a divorce or couple’s therapy whose therapists told them to stop seeking emotional support from their kids or to stop manipulating their kids by telling them about their problems and steering them to support one parent’s decisions or wishes over the other only to have the scolded parent cease therapy with that particular therapist. A co-worker has been through 3 therapists because they all keep telling her to stop providing more information to her children than necessary. She was involved with someone new before her divorce was final and she wanted to move in with him with her kids but he lived in another school district which would mean her kids would need to change schools. She was pretty adept at acting sad and appearing stressed to them over finances and clearly letting them know that moving in with new man and splitting bills would releive her of her worries. The therapist told her to stop spilling about her finances to her kids. She quit him. Uggghhh!

      • aaa says:

        @Christin,
        To me it is not a bid deal that Leann got dressed up to attend a therapy session. I’ll give credit where credit is due, Brandi can make a random comment and her supporters will rally around it like it has significance.

        @Macey,
        I don’t blame Leann for getting a NDA signed, according to Brandi herself she had contracts with tabloids and was talking to the press about the therapy session before it even happened.

      • Christin says:

        aaa — I agree that how she was dressed is not of as much importance compared to allegedly not involving the mother in choosing the therapist. The two parents should have been able to work out those details.

        As for being a supporter of anyone in this mess, I’m not. For the record, I read Brandi’s first book after LeAnn seemed to be having such a public meltdown about it. Like others have said, there would have likely been a lawsuit if anything in that book were false.

      • aaa says:

        @Christin,
        If Brandi wanted to choose the therapist, then she should have put in the effort and spent the money for the sessions. If Leann was allowed to take control of that situation, and Brandi disagreed with how Leann was handling it but went along anyway, then shame on Brandi.

        P.S.
        Although I doubt if Brandi had any big disagreement, for Brandi she had to figure out some way to make the situation juicy for the tabloids she was selling the story to.

      • claire says:

        @aaa: That scenario sounds all nice and dandy, but doesn’t give acknowledgement to the power differentials going on at time of affair and divorce…or even now.

      • aaa says:

        @claire,
        There is no power (or financial) differential to be acknowledged, if Brandi can afford her botox, fillers, weave maintenance, sessions with personal trainers, keeping insurance on a luxury car, etc. then she can afford to pay for counseling.

      • Jenny12 says:

        So Brandi, an unknown and dumped housewife with two small kids at the time, should have somehow paid for a therapist AND shut her mouth after Eddie and Leann cheated? After Leann sold the story of their affair to US Magazine and had paps turning up at places where they were so as to push the issue? After Eddie and Leann were constantly photographed at restaurants and golf and on vacation, BRANDI should’ve stayed quiet?

      • Christin says:

        Wow, all the deflection just reinforces the summary I heard when I started paying attention to this saga. That summary was that one time country singer somehow gets caught on camera with a handsome(?) co-star and they later seem to expect the ex just to be steamrolled into silence.

        Let’s forget who was paying for therapy sessions (obviously they were not effective, as others have noted). What about the allegations less than 2 years ago that the PARENTS could not attend parent-teacher meetings together. There have been several examples of how (allegedly) the two PARENTS cannot effectively co-parent, be it blocked phone access, inability to meet with a teacher together, etc. And after hearing him speak out recently, I believe there is truth in these long-time allegations.

      • aaa says:

        @Jenny12,
        Yes the “unknown and dumped” housewife who drove a luxury car, got regular beauty treatments and requested $40,000 a month in support should be willing to pay for counseling if she truly wanted to effectively co-parent the children that she professes to love so much.

        @Christin,
        Making someone sign a NDA so that she will not run to the tabloids with details of a counseling sessions is not “steamrolling someone into silence” IMO. It should not have to be done except when you are dealing with someone who will sell out her sister, father and children for a tabloid headline or clicks on a podcast.

      • Jenny12 says:

        @aaa, I truly am trying to understand you. You make incisive comments on other threads, but you seem stuck in the blame the victim rut here. Is Brandi a saint? No. Does she make some crap decisions? Yes. But essentially, when I’ve seen her- full disclosure: I don’t watch TV, so what I see is recaps on this blog or another one I like- she is a loving parent who puts her kids first. People make jokes about their kids all the time- there’s a book that’s a bestseller called Go The F— To Sleep because parents get it. Comedians have created entire routines around insulting their kids (I love Louis CK, but holy crap, that’s some mouth). I disagree with the underwear pictures, but I’ve seen a lot of parents do it. My friend and his wife have a nearly 7 year old daughter (same as Jake) and they posted shots of her in shorts, no shirt, at the beach. It’s not uncommon. As for the rest of it, yes, Leann should have paid for the therapy (so should Eddie, but we all know he has nothing) and showed some decency in the face of Brandi trying to accept that her husband dumped her and she was now a single mom with the mistress pushing every boundary known. That’s why I dislike Leann and will always have a soft spot for Brandi. No one should have to deal with being cheated on, dumped, harassed as though she was the one who did something wrong, and then have a mistress turned girlfriend act as though she were the new parent and the mother should step aside. Bad enough she was inappropriate in front of the kids from day one, Eddie, too, but to constantly put the boys’ pictures up, including Xmas dinner when the separation was fresh? To have to sit there as they made out and Leann put the boys on her lap in front of all the soccer parents? To have Leann decide that, as Eddie’s girlfriend, she was coming to PARENT DAY at school!? And then publicize the name of the school on Twitter?? How do you excuse this behavior?

    • Stef Leppard says:

      Yeah I don’t think their counseling to put the kids first worked. If the kids were coming first we wouldn’t be reading this story.

  4. MrsBPitt says:

    Wow…can you imagine what they told those poor kids. “Daddy left your Mom, the drunken whore, because we were so hot for each other that we couldn’t help ourselves! Our love is the most special, the most intense love that has ever been…your Mom sucks, who could love her. So boys, always do whatever you want in life and don’t worry about the consequences to other people…you must always be selfish and disregard others feelings” Yeah, probably something like that….

  5. Snowpea says:

    Oh my gosh these two make me sick. LeAnn is as delusional as they come. “Bettering ourselves”? Hmmm what about singing songs from her new album detailing the affair in front of the boys…?

    Rimes is a sickening example of entitlement gone bananas. She is dangerous and deluded and just plain horrible.

    • Brin says:

      Agreed. Shame on L&S (and all tabloids) for giving these two vile asses a platform to spew their poison.

      • betty says:

        Now Leann and Eddie have three titles to boast about: (1) Most Hated Couple (2) Worst Reality Show (3) Worst Parents Can they improve on this list any? Let them spew because all it is doing is making them non bankable

      • Jenny12 says:

        They aren’t parents. Eddie and Brandi are.

  6. Tracy says:

    Their ick factor is through the roof these days.

  7. Kiddo says:

    The kids asked because they already knew from all the shameless famewhoring on both sides of their DNA.

    Hopefully, the parents put aside a boatload of money for future ongoing therapy for these poor captive souls, who had no role in consent for their lives being made so public, and who will one day need it.

    • Christin says:

      I truly hope someone is saving money for them, because those boys have been an upfront part of keeping this public drama going via photos and stories like this. They have had no choice, and it’s basically all they know.

      Privacy is likely a foreign concept to them.

      • Mixtape says:

        If you look at the lavish lifestyles on both sides of the family and the desperate attempts to earn more, I doubt anything is being saved. Books are being written, reality shows are being produced, and press like this is being courted all to keep two sinking ships afloat.

      • Jezi says:

        Actually Brandi has said she pays the boys when they’re in photo shoots with her. She definitely saves for them.

      • Christin says:

        If their dad and bonus mom would do the same as Brandi (save the money), they’d be set. They are the ones who seem to do 90 percent of the mentions and photos. The ball game photos no doubt are prompted by bonus mom.

  8. eliza says:

    With those three lunatics guiding their lives, those children have a very steeeeeeeeeeeeep uphill climb ahead of them.

    Between this stupid show, the latest Brandi ass pictures, the constant oversharing on personal matters by both parents, these adults should be ashamed of themselves putting innocent kids in the position they have. Imagine how school must be?! And before anyone says “Ohhhhhh, kids thst age don’t know about this stuff” Parents talk. Kids hear. Kids taunt. FACT.

  9. Jezi says:

    Brandi has not told the boys about the reason they split up. Theyre still young. Shes always said when they’re older they will understand why but she has worked hard to shield them from a lot of the BS. Like when the boys asked if she still loved their dad she told them she will always love him because he is their father but when they asked him he said no he doesn’t love her. She’s not in love with him but she wants the boys to feel no animosity there. Eddie doesn’t care if the boys feel ok hes just out to hurt Brandi.

    • Brin says:

      My heart breaks for her every time those two asses open their mouths. I hope she continues to stay strong for her boys. I’m glad she has a friend like you, Jezi. Hope you are well.

    • Erinn says:

      That story always bugged me. You can love someone as a person, or for what you used to have without being in love with them. However, I can just imagine the shitshow that would be opened up, HAD Ediot said that he still loved Brandi… Leann would have flipped her shit.

      • aaa says:

        If Eddie no longer loves Brandi, IMO there is nothing wrong with him answering the question truthfully, and with sensitivity, when he was asked.

      • Lady D says:

        ‘Cause Eddie’s aaallll about the sensitivity, right?

      • aaa says:

        Hey as long as he didn’t call the kid an asshole, d— or f—er, he’s ahead of the game.

      • Jenny12 says:

        OMG, aaa, enough. Your hatred of Brandi blinds you to what is good for the children. Don’t start in with Brandi did this or that, it’s simple logic to know that you tell your kids, I am so glad we were together and had you or I was in love with her once, but now I’m glad we were married because otherwise I wouldn’t have had you. All you know how to do is find fault with Brandi because your idols can do no wrong. I’m sure Eddie and Leann were as sensitive as possible since they had no issue with Leann grabbing his dick in front of them or embarrassing them in front of teammates by dry humping each other. They’re all about what’s good for the boys. There’s a difference between truth when you’re diplomatic and when you’re plain cruel, but I guess it’s cool when the boys watch his comments about their mom on his TV SHOW or when they meet their stepmother’s fans that she picks out of a crowd and gives a shoutout to for wearing F Brandi shirts. They’re all about the boys.

      • aaa says:

        Jenny12, enough, your co-dependence with Brandi is blinding you. What makes you think that Eddie did not explain it the way you described. I am not getting the leap from Leann groping Eddie in 2010 to Eddie not being able to have a sensitive discussion with his six year old son in 2013.

        Say what you will about Leann and Eddie, but the groping has not been repeated, the same cannot be said about the object of your projection Brandi when it comes to tweeting pictures of kids in hospital beds, tweeting pictures of kids in their underwear and discussing her sons’ hygiene.

      • Jenny12 says:

        Oh, for Chrissake. Nope. They’ve slowed down the over the top PDA because their feelings have cooled. Anyone can see that. But for years and years, they were hypersexual in front of the kids- Ed’s boys and other kids. It slowed in recent years. You’re cool with picking on everything Brandi does or says, but don’t go back and point out what they’ve done? Come on. I don’t think Brandi is a saint and I don’t agree with everything she does, and I’ve said it before. My sister in law was DUMPED while pregnant, her ex married when their son was 3 DAYS old, and when he asked if she ever loved his dad, she said of course. Leann introduced the boys to the fans wearing the F Brandi shirts last summer, so I don’t see her being sensitive to their needs anytime soon. Is that happening while they insult the kids’ mother nonstop on a public show?

      • Jenny12 says:

        The leap was you saying that L and E are sensitive to the boys’ needs and I was pointing out they never have been.

    • Kim1 says:

      Yeah Brandi just post pics of them in their underwear and calls them vulgar names.LMAO

      • Jezi says:

        Her kids love her. Anyone with half a brain can see that. Mason is extremely protective of her. So if she was a horrid mother it would be obvious by their behavior.

      • aaa says:

        It looks to me like Mason and Jake love both of their parents, and Brandi has said, more than once, that Mason and Jake love Leann. Nevertheless, all three of the adults have done things that are not in the boys’ best interests and IMO there is nothing wrong with them being called out over their actions.

      • Jezi says:

        @aaa I’ve never said they didn’t love their father. I’m merely pointing out Brandi’s attempts at sparing the boys hurt feelings whereas Eddie doesn’t think about it before he says things. Eddie should have spoken to Brandi first if the boys were asking and discussed how to handle this question together as to avoid further pain. But to co parent is impossible with Eddie and Leann, since both claim they don’t respect Brandi.

      • aaa says:

        @Jezi,
        And you think that co-parenting with Brandi is easy??!! Everyone is jumping on Eddie and Leann for the comments they have made, and I don’t have a problem with that, but where was the outrage when Brandi was saying that Eddie made her skin crawled or called Leann a c—? And please don’t play the “Brandi was the victim and Eddie and Leann drove her to it” card, because many of the potshots that Brandi took at Eddie and Leann were said as part of her book tour or promo appearances for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills .

      • Jezi says:

        Actually yes! She makes it very easy for Eddie. She’s been very accommodating to him since the beginning. She doesn’t talk badly about them, she pays for a phone for Mason so she can keep in touch with him since her number was blocked. She has gone way out of her way in many instances to make things comfortable for their children. I can give many details but I don’t think it will matter since you’re all team Leann and Eddie.

      • Emily C. says:

        Mason is extremely protective of her? Uh, that’s not a good sign. It’s a bad one. Kids should not feel the need to protect their parents. It’s a classic sign of kids’ boundaries being crossed — and also a classic sign of being the child of an alcoholic.

      • Jenny12 says:

        I don’t agree with the underwear posts, but I have to say she isn’t the only one. My friend and his wife post pictures of their daughter on FB in shorts, no shirt (she’s six) and my friend- married to her kids’ dad- also has posted photos of her son in his boxers. As for being protective, most boys are extremely protective of their mother, especially if they perceive her as being hurt or in pain. If they see half of what Leann and Eddie expose her to, then Mason will feel protective. Mason is 11- he gets that she isn’t allowed to call when he’s with them or that they have a show devoted to bashing her.

      • Jezi says:

        Um Emily C that’s untrue. My first son who is 6 is very protective of me as well. And I am not an alcoholic. He’s close to me because he’s my first born child and before his brother was born it was just him, his father and me. I’m his everything. But why Mason is protective of her is because he sees his mom as a single mom. Since she doesn’t bring any men around her that she’s dating. He also sees the way his father treats her. She isn’t an alcoholic either.

    • MonicaQ says:

      I very rarely defend any of them (except LeAnn’s ex husband, he’s handled it like a champ and if it’s money keeping him silent–which I doubt–then he still looks like the better party) but that’s sweet of Brandi to say.

    • Jess says:

      That’s exactly how it should be. It broke my heart when I heard him say he never loved or respected Brandi, because that’s what he said to his children as well. You just don’t say things like that, no matter what. Brandi did the right thing by telling the boys she still cared for their father, I have no doubt they’ll be ok simply because they have her! It’s clear Mason doesn’t like being around LeAnn, and I’m sure his little brother will feel the same, kids pick up on everything and know when adults are lying or just bad people, and those two are awful human beings.

    why oh why is she still going on about this???!!!??

    • Anthea says:

      Exactly. I feel really sorry for Mason. He looks like he’s affected by this a fair bit. Poor kid. I’m not keen on Brandi but he looks miles happier with her.

    • Macey says:

      because it’s the only thing she has to talk about. she has absolutely nothing else going for her other than what she got from BG’s old life. Just think how empty she will be once Ed goes b/c there goes her only “friends”, kids and ediot. outside of them she has nothing, literally nothing. The girl doesnt have one thing of her own other than her money. everything and everyone around her are BG’s hand me downs.

      • Brin says:

        Word….and her money is going fast.

      • aaa says:

        Leann lived a full (and IMO more interesting) life before Eddie and I bet she will live a full life after him. It does look like she moved into Eddie’s world when they got together and I don’t think that she should have done that, but on the other hand I can see why it happened since he had children.

        When Eddie and Leann are over, Leann will move on to her next California pretty boy, Eddie will have to get serious about his career again, and hopefully, for his kids and Brandi’s sake, will get enough work to keep decent roofs over their heads.

      • Lady D says:

        I don’t think it’s going to be as easy as all that for falcor to have a fabulous life post-Ediot. She has spent the last 4 years showing the world her crazy. Her relentless stalking of the boy’s mother, the constant bragging about her affair, the incessant ‘my boys’ comments, etc. She has shown hundreds of thousands of people that she is proud of her lack of morals, and has no problem whatsoever trying to claim someone else’s children as her own. People hate that. Her work ethic is practically non-existant and her fans are dropping like flies (instead of being attracted to the sh*t smell)
        She will be so desperate for attention by the time the next sap comes along that he too will be calling all the shots with her.

      • Christin says:

        Her relationship timeline has little if any gaps in it, from teen years to today. I think there were only a couple of months between Keegan and Dean. That apparent need to have a guy is very telling, I think.

        I have a feeling the next fame / money hungry one will make this look like amateur hour. She seems able to take a lot of humiliation, so that may be fine. Just as long as he’s young and cute, right?

  11. Cris says:

    They think the kids understand, just because they nod their little heads and say they do. We all were kids once, and remember how our little minds had the ability to change what we were told into something else, because we really didn’t “understand”. These little guys are going to be so messed up. It looks like the little one
    will be just like his dad, already lying to get his way. Kids learn what they see. So very sad.

  12. BeckyR says:

    All the adults involved disgust me.

    • mandygirl says:

      Me too! I’m sorry, but some things need to be kept private between adults. Children only get one childhood and these two are royally mucking up these boys’ childhoods. They should only worry about playing outside, watching movies, playing games, etc.–not the way their father treated their mother/left her for another woman. I have two kids and I would never burden them with my grown-up problems. I feel sorry for these children. Shame on Leann and Eddie for what they’re doing to these kids.

    • Emily C. says:

      Same here. I am so sorry for those kids. I hope they have a grandparent or nanny or teacher or other adult in their lives to lean on.

  13. Macey says:

    I guess she’s getting some slack for this b/c now she’s trying to back track and say the L&S article is misleading. Here’s her tweet to them…

    @Life_and_Style we said we spoke to them about the situation after they asked & spoke as honestly as we could given their ages #misleading

    she’s such a lying psychopath. I really can’t wait for their show to be canceled just so I don’t have to see so many articles repeating the exact same thing over and over. They literally have nothing without BG and those kids..Nothing.

  14. diane warren says:

    Leann has a miss sense of what is right n wrong through it all she will never replace their real mom Brandy. how about have ur on kids leann n stop claming other peoples children.

  15. bettyrose says:

    I’ve said this before but I’m worried those boys will end up viewing women as meal tickets. Lord knows they’re gonna be heartbreakers, so living in a crazy family, entrenched in LA values, whose teaching them to not turn into their dad?

    • Christin says:

      If money dries up (and I strongly suspect it will, probably sooner rather than later), the youngest may be encouraged to go into show business. He seems to play up for the cameras and no doubt daddy would claim it’s what Jake wants.

      I’m going to be surprised if Eddie ever works again after this reality show. He has hastened his pretty boy acting expiration date, IMO. Plus he has gotten used to the lazy, easy life. He may not be able to wait for the boys to grow up and find wealthy women.

      • claire says:

        His bad acting was overshadowed by his looks. Now his looks have seriously faded. Dude is going to be in a bad position unless he finds a new sugar mama when they split.

      • Chris says:

        @Claire: maybe he can go flip burgers

      • Sonia says:

        You know…his parents are getting their rent paid by Leanne, maybe he will encourage his boys to find stupid women to pay HIS rent too! The apples sure don’t fall very far.

  16. Hyena says:

    They really can’t win. What exactly are they supposed to do? Lie to the kids? If they did that, people would be all over them too!

    It’s kind of a huge event (the biggest thing possible!) in children’s lives- parents split, daddy and mommy live separately and a new person (or persons if both move on) gets involved (or caused the split as in this case). It has to be acknowledged to the kids and they are going to have questions. When I was 8, I started to figure out Santa wasn’t really and asked my dad and he lied and I could tell. I then told him I didn’t care if Santa wasn’t real but I wanted the truth and he gave it to me. I appreciated the truth then and still do now.

    Wouldn’t it be much worse if Eddie lied or blamed the split on their mother?

    • Deanne says:

      He probably did. He had no problem saying that he never respected the Mother of his children and his partner of 13 years. Why should we think he’d take any accountability when “explaining” it to the boys?

    • HappyMom says:

      I think the fact that they’re, yet again, over sharing what should be a personal matter is what disgusts everyone. Yes, the boys are old enough to have a cleaned up version of what happened. However, they shouldn’t be giving interviews telling the world this-it’s a private family discussion.

    • Jenny12 says:

      When someone asks if you loved their mother, you freaking say yes, you did, and it gave me you and your brother. Or, I’m not in love with her anymore, but I’m so glad we were married and had you. SOMETHING. He blames Brandi for everything in his life, and so does Leann.

  17. Deanne says:

    As someone who experienced this very scenario as a child, I can safely say that those boys are going to end up HATING LeAnn and losing respect for their Father. They may claim to have explained it in a way that they kids understand, but I am sure they insulted and blamed the boys Mother in their explanation, because neither LeAnn or Eddie seem capable of accepting accountability themselves. As the boys get older, they’ll pick up on the fact that their Father and his new wife have mistreated their Mother and it’ll come back to bite them. LeAnn and Eddie are far too arrogant to understand this, but it is going to happen. They seem to assume that everyone is too stupid to see through their lies and manipulations. The vast majority of the public see through their BS and the boys will too.

    • Hyena says:

      I’m sorry that happened to you but I bet your mother actually was a victim.

      I believe at one point 5 year ago, brandi was a victim but she has been her own sharp point in this vicious triangle of hate for far too long. She is just as much to blame as those two for bad behaviour. I think the kids will disown all of them.

      • Deanne says:

        If this was just between Eddie and Brandi, I would completely agree with you, but LeAnn has inserted herself where she has no place being, regardless if she and Eddie are married or not and she and Eddie go after Brandi together. Two against one isn’t a fair fight. My Father let my step-mother interfere with co-parenting, just like Eddie does. It’s cowardly and isn’t putting your children first. The boys will see that Brandi has worked hard to get back onto her feet and provide for them and will also see that their Father has chosen to live off of their step-mother’s money. Brandi has her own faults and blame in certain things that have gone on, but LeAnn’s overstepping of boundaries and lack of ability to understand that she has zero custodial rights are ridiculous. If they ever got a divorce, or, heaven forbid, anything were to happen to Eddie, LeAnn would have no legal right to ever see the boys again. Eddie allowing her to pretend she’s as important as their real Mother, doesn’t make it true or right.

  18. Miss M says:

    I am glad my parents didn’t say details of their divorce. I figured things out later and I didn’t create any type of bad feelings either. I am glad my parents split amicably. It seems these two celebrities lack common sense.

    • MonicaQ says:

      I gotta say that’s pretty cool! :)

      Most of the times (that I’ve experienced) it ends with one parent demonized or kids end up cutting off both.

      • Miss M says:

        It is pretty cool. My father has always resorted to my mother’s advice for career decisions and such. We were always puzzled as how they got along. Hahaha
        But I think my mother had a crucial role in it, she never played the victim and always wanted us to be proud of our father . On top of that, she made it clear that his role as a husband didn’t work out, but he was/ is a good father.

  19. Relli says:

    These two, always the epitome of class and decorum!

  20. Tracy says:

    Hey Ed, did you explain to your boys about the other side pieces that you were doing while screwing around with their now “bonus mom”?

    Gotta keep it real and honest with the kids, right Ed?

  21. Ag says:

    those poor kids…

  22. aaa says:

    IMO the last two sentences of the article should be:

    “Also, those kids are going to figure out (if they haven’t already) that their dad likes crazy women. Those poor boys.”

    • Deanne says:

      Does he like crazy women, or does he make women crazy. To quote LeAnn, I think Eddie Cibrian is as “manipulative as sh-t”.

      • MichBB says:

        Agree with that 100%, he is a manipulative douchebag. Brandi suspected something on the Lifetime set & heard LR talk suggestively to Ed and confronted him. Ed then proceeded to tell Brandi “you see and hear things that don’t happen” suggesting to B that she is crazy. He like to mind-f*ck women.

    • Jenny12 says:

      Yes, look how sensitive they are to the kids- here they are, first dating, first moved out of the house with Brandi: http://www.popsugar.com/LeAnn-Rimes-Bikini-Photos-Mexico-Shirtless-Eddie-Cibrian-His-Children-7768203#photo-7768218

      • michele says:

        Good pic choice Jenny. She’s a white trash pig. I’ll be so glad when she has no more access to those kids. I pray it happens soon.

      • Jenny12 says:

        It always amazed me that websites would publish that shot and say something like, oh, they’re playing in the sand. Bad enough that the boys were papped when their parents were first separated- good old Dad and girlfriend- but to do THAT in front of them? And have it published? And no one says anything??

  23. Victoria 1 says:

    This broad. STFU already. Stop justifying your affair. Stop with twitter. Live your “happy life” in silence. Hire a life coach and fix your life – quietly!!!!!! Then plan your comeback and dump this loser.

    • Tracy says:

      I am sure her PR people have given her that very advice but she won’t listen to anyone. She won her prize pig and she isn’t letting him go for anything.

      The comical part is once that money does dry up we all know there will be an Eddie shaped hole in her front door.

  24. Lydia Says says:

    I think it’s appropriate given the circumstances and the fame involved. If they were not tabloid fodder, I may disagree, but given their tabloid status, I don’t really think this is that big of a deal.I mean, if they don’t hear it from their parents, they’re going to hear it from friends, or read about it. They can always read Brandi’s books & interviews, listen to her podcast & watch her on RHOBH to learn about how she let Eddie bring other women home, how she used to do coke, learn about her multiple sexual partners & drunken escapades. Kids are a lot smarter & a lot more in tune with what’s going on around them then some people think. I think it would be foolish to NOT address it with them. That’s assuming they haven’t already heard all the gory details from Brandi’s filthy mouth, she doesn’t exactly seem like the type to pull punches for the sake of her children’s well being. Bottom line, those boys apparently have no positive adults to emulate.

  25. Anon says:

    As parents they have a right to talk to the children.. You dont think Brandy has not said a peep.. Lets get real.. brandi is no innocent here either.. All three will have explaining to do as these boys grow up. There better off to get smething from parents then to fully believe everything written as much is too far biased in one direction then another.NOPE i am not a fan of any of them but do have an interest in the children well being.

    Just similar to children being adopted and finding out as an adult the parent that raised you is not your bio parent..think about it. You are far better off adjusting while young.. Its the antics of the adults after that make things sad and rediculous and will bere scars on the boys. These people are not murders but they are tearing these boys hearts apart ALL THREE OF THEM.EACH ONE NEEDS TO GROW UP.

  26. zbornak synddrome says:

    I bet they put a nice little spin on their version of the story

  27. Funcales says:

    Leann, once again, is a lying liar who lies. Those boys did not ask those two mental degenerates questions about the divorce. This is Leann doing her version of damage control.

    Leann made the mistake of harping on the the affair that brought them together to the press and on the tv show and it back fired in her face which led to basement ratings.

    Therefore Leann thinks,” Gee, the reason no one watched the show is because they think the boys are sad because I broke up the family. I’ll fix this since VH1 refuse to do anything”.
    So cray, cray then go to all the media outlets to let them know the boys know and they are okay with it because they now know that I saved them from their mom. Now they love me now than any one in the whole universe. So now it’s okay to watch my show.

    The true die hard people that has read all the drama from the begining to end know that nutty LeLe thinking is truly along these lines.

  28. Anon says:

    A lot of true die hard people are the ones that have blinders on in much of it.. All biased.. The ones that step back and have a good look at it can see a whole lot more. That is my opinion on it all.. no bias helps to think more clearly and who can benefit from three adults acting like adults with the children being the focus.

  29. MY TWO CENTS says:

    I am so repulsed by these two! I stay away for days and then check in on latest and it’s always something that makes me more repulsed by them. Why can’t they just STFU about these kids? I have never seen another “celebrity” ( I use that term very loosely) couple get together that is still five years later talking about how they exploited the victims in this mess. The ex-wife and his children. The sad thing is these two idiots have just enough people that follow them and praise them for anything and everything they do. I give Brandi a free pass because she did what she had to do to create as similar lifestyle as she could to the one Leann gives them and because Leann and Eddie as a team screwed her in divorce. There is just no excuse for Eddie. I now know why he didn’t ever speak too much publicly. Because as soon as he opened his mouth for this show he became the most repulsive, loathsome man I have seen. And I have seen some bad ones. I believe they have now decided to base their careers and make money off the haters because there is so many more of them. Every time they open their mouths they say something that brings people to comment in masses negatively. Pays the same I guess. I guarantee you those boys love their Mother more than any of the three and Leann fans say such horrible, disgusting things about her. How Leann is a better Mother and how CPS should take her kids. It amazes me how the public can pass judgement on Brandi as a Mother when none of them have ever seen her interact with her children. That is what infuriates me more than anything in this whole sordid mess. All Leann would have to do is take away her negative influence about Brandi with her fans and it would stop. But, no she enjoys it and makes her feel better about only being a stepmom. It is so going to backfire on her. I can’t wait till it does. Sorry for ranting just so sick of these two!!!

  30. why? says:

    The kids didn’t ask, Leann only said that they asked because many blogs were writing that what she and Eddie did was inappropriate. I don’t know which is worse, the fact that she is bragging about telling Mason and Jake about the affair or the fact that she blamed them when she saw how the blogs responded to what she said. No one should be surprised that Leann and Eddie are bringing up Jake and Mason even more than what they did before in their interviews, it’s a ploy to get people to watch their show. Their show had 374,000 viewers. Leann tries to get a ratings boost by using Jake and Mason. I am glad that the blogs who wrote about this, pointed out that Leann and Eddie’s Life and Style interview was a ploy to get ratings.

    Where did all the Brandi haters come from? On the day that the second episode-the episode where Leann parties with Chrissy and Lizzy because the day she set it up, Leann set up a staged photo-op, of Leann’s show airs, the article is suddenly filled with Brandi haters.

        Oh, c’mon. That’s not fair. Brandi has garnered her fair share of haters among the RHOBH fans and the public. That’s just a fact. I like her more in this 3-way saga for sure but let’s not pretend she’s the perfect angel that doesn’t have her own set of detractors. Ever since the last season of RHOBH these threads here have evened out more with hate for both sides.

    These two idiots are perfect examples of why some women stay in unhealthy marriages rather then divorce. The aftermath of having to deal with a step monster like leanne. I know i’d go crazy on a daily basis having her around my children.

  32. BunnyBabe says:

    To me, the whole Brandi vs LeAnn side-taking is crazy. How you can choose between these two blows my mind. Rock/hard place, pot/kettle… There is so little difference between these two idiots. And don’t get me started on Eddie. He’s two for two on the poor choices of bed mates department. Innocent children do not belong in conversations with the media, period. Just stop it.

  33. Debi says:

  34. Dorothy says:

    I don’t think those two idiots have ever realized that the affair is not something to be proud of. Can’t believe they went into detail with the kids. Proof that those two mental defects don’t need to reproduce.

  35. michele says:

    LeAnn won’t be around long enough in the boys life for any of this to matter. This marriage is on the rocks and will end if the blinds that are out there are to be believed. Even Ediot’s parents have had enough allegedly.

    But Eddie will NEVER recover from what he has done to these boys, once these boys are old enough to understand and read allllllllllll this sh*t that he allowed LeAnn to write and say about their mother. But mostly they will never forgive what HE HAS SAID about their mother. Let alone done to their mother.

    • Jenny12 says:

      The problem is, whether they divorce or not- hopefully yes so Brandi and the boys finally have peace- they all still had to go through years of the bullying, harassing, and endangering the kids. Who the hell introduces her married boyfriend’s kids to fans, much less ones who hate their mother, and tells them that they have new family now? Whose idiot boyfriend ALLOWED it? Leann is evil and Eddie is a monster. Who allows the mother of his children to be treated like this, and so publicly? They had no issue giving the boys zero time to cope with the separation; no issues in constant, oversexual behavior in front of them; no issues in using them as photo props and publicity tools; no issues in using them against their mother, and so on. Nothing can take away all the years of pain foisted on them by an uncaring, soulless sociopath and his sidekick. :(
