Dean Sheremet refers to LeAnn, Brandi & Eddie as the ‘triangle of blame & anger’


Dean Sheremet is promoting his new cookbook, and he’s been getting some good press about and around it. Dean writes openly about the breakup of his marriage to LeAnn Rimes, how that pain led him to New York and culinary school and more. He’s been pretty nice about the whole thing, and it does feel like he’s genuinely over it. LeAnn is still pissed, of course, and trying to shut him down through cease & desist letters and legal threats. Dean even promoted his book on Brandi Glanville’s podcast too! Anyway, Dean sat down for an interview with Jezebel last week, and he once again comes across like a nice guy with no particular axe to grind. Some highlights (you can read the full piece here):

His journey to professional chef: “I don’t consider myself a celebrity chef. When the demise of my relationship with LeAnn happened, I moved to New York and needed something that was inherently mine—that just belonged to me, it had nothing to do with the entertainment world. So I went to school at the French Culinary Institute, graduated top of my class, and then started working in restaurants making sh-t money just because I wanted to be a chef. I didn’t want to release a cookbook and have it be unwarranted, or have someone look at it and go, Oh, it’s LeAnn Rimes’s ex-husband releasing a cookbook. I always wanted it to be legitimized. And for me to do that, I kind of had to disappear and go to school. I worked for Nobu. I worked for Jean Georges. I had to do it at the highest level I could possibly do it so that, for me, I could say I could stand on my own two legs and say, This is mine. So I had no problem being completely honest. I think a lot of people sugarcoat a lot of things, and for me, I went through a really sh-tty divorce! It was part of my story. It’s not the whole story, but it’s a stepping stone that led me to be that honest and do this book. So I wasn’t afraid of doing that at all.”

Whether this is an angry/revenge-soaked cookbook: “It’s not an angry book at all… People are playing it up a little. It’s being presented as a revenge cookbook, but it’s not a revenge cookbook. I have no animosity towards her. We were together for eight years, and it was really incredible for a lot of the time. There’s no me versus her in this book at all. I even say in the intro what I was to blame for, and how I could have been better, and what I learned. I was lucky enough to, when I left the three of them—that triangle of blame and anger—I just went, you know what? This is what happened. I was at fault in some places too. It takes two people to get married, and it takes two people to get divorced.”

How he turned to cooking: “I had always cooked—my grandmother had me in the kitchen since I was a young kid. Food had always been a thru-line in my life. I threatened [once], when LeAnn was gonna possibly do Broadway, I thought, ‘Oh, that would be cool, I’d love to come up and do culinary school.’ It was always just bidding it around what her schedule was going to be? It had always been in my brain, but when it happened I was like, “This is the perfect time to make a huge crazy jump.” So I left LA, moved to New York, and started my whole life in New York.

Whether he would have gone to culinary school had his marriage not fallen apart: “I don’t think I would have, no. We were so intertwined, and it would have continued going the way it was going. I needed to have my ass kicked and pushed into the deep end of the pool.”

[From Jezebel]

I like this: “I was lucky enough to, when I left the three of them—that triangle of blame and anger—I just went, you know what? This is what happened.” Because it IS a triangle, despite what Brandi Glanville wants to think or admit. All three of these people – LeAnn, Eddie and Brandi – keep the budget Triangle of Doom alive. In Brandi’s case, I sort of understand it – she turned “being left for LeAnn Rimes” into a career. I can’t really explain why LeAnn and Eddie keep it alive though. As for Dean, he got out, he learned from his years with LeAnn and he’s built a nice life for himself. I wish him well!

    I bought the cookbook last week, have not opened it yet. I will admit that a big reason why I bought it was my dislike of LR and EC and I know DS succeeding will anger at least one of those two (and maybe both).

    • Jane says:

      I did the same thing and left the first glowing review on Amazon for it. You know Leann goes on Amazon to check things out because she is THAT obsessed. I bought the book to support Dean and tick off Leann.

  2. Pinky says:

    LeAnn created some monsters in her life that won’t go away. She needs to accept responsibility for that. All she can do now is learn to become less antagonistic and since that’s the case, and she never learns, this will never end. Oh well.


    • funcakes says:

      Its a shame someone is unable to step in a tell her to cut the crap. But I’m sure all the users in her life would never want a stable influence to step up because that means they would have to go.

      • Donna says:

        You are correct. Daryl will only forever tell her what she wants to hear, because she is his bread and butter. Kiki…where has she been, lately? Kiki is the same.
        Nobody is going to set her straight, and if they did, she’s stamp her child star foot and demand an Oompa Loompa and that’s that.

      • funcakes says:

        Roger is twice as ridiculous . He’s on social media arguing with the haters instead of ignoring them. You would think someone with a business to run would try to concentrate on building followers.
        Instead he’s challenging everyone. Then he was arguing with someone on how much money LeAnn has because his husband gets a big check.

  3. aims says:

    He’s absolutely right. That’s the best description of that freak show if I’ve ever heard. Team Dean. Clearly he’s the most healthy.

  4. Elisabeth says:

    I think if Brandi didn’t have kids with Ed, it would be more of a long forgotten punchline, but since she is in a constant battle with him because of the kids, she makes the most of it.
    Dean is lucky he didn’t have kids with that succubus

    • Nick says:

      Great Point.

    • Jezi says:

      That’s exactly why it’s still going on because the kids are what Leann uses as pawns to piss off Brandi. Had there been no kids involved Brandi could’ve gotten a fresh start as well and wouldn’t have to deal with her ex and his wallet.

      • K says:

        Sorry Brandi doesn’t want a fresh start, kids or no kids. She loves playing the scorned woman. If they didn’t have kids I think Eddie and Leanne would have moved on the kids give Brandi a reason to keep it alive (and note I can’t stand any of them) but it is Brandi that keeps it going and brings everything up publically.

        If they didn’t have kids she wouldn’t have pulled a Dean and chased her passion, she would have done the same thing because let’s be honest she could have easily done what he did and she didn’t because all three love the drama.

      • Nick says:

        Ha – you think LR has moved on? Yeah, she sure has with all her SWFing of Brandi etc.

        So you absolve LR of all the drama that has been created?

      • Jezi says:

        So basically Brandi should stfu and sit back while her ex and LR steamrolled over her? I think not! Just as Leann feels the need to spew all her #happyfamily #bonusboys #stepsonlove #myboys bullshit all over social media, Brandi has every right to tell her to cut the crap!

      • briargal says:

        @K–I disagree with you about Edna (love his new nickname) & Leaky moving on if there were no kids. Leaky loves all the attention & with her career swirling around the toilet bowl, ALL she has left is a cheating crummy hubby, a loyal sicko bbf, and tabloid attention. Pretty pathetic!!

      • K says:

        @briar I think Leanne sucks as much as Brandi, I think she wants to keep it alive for the fame too. But this idea that she would have walked away is a joke, because just look at who brandi is towards the real housewives I mean she is just a hate filled person. She loves the attention, she plays up to it, when it goes away when the drama dies down she creates drama for attention.

        I just think this idea that she is some victim is a joke. She isn’t she is an active participate in this mess, and if she truly loved her kids she would figure out how to deal with this privately.

        Again like I said below I’ve watched family go through divorce and deal with way worse crap then Brandi and way less active co parents and they are constantly working to make the situation good, they are positive and want it good for their kids which isn’t happening here and I just can’t care or feel for these three losers.

    • Naya says:

      I think Dean also acknowledged that Brandi cant detach like he did because of the kids. He did in the podcast anyway.

      • AmyB says:

        Yes he did say that very thing. He said he was relieved they did not have kids so he was able to make a clean break.

    • Luca76 says:

      Except she doesn’t put the kids first she puts her anger first(neither do LeeAnn and Eddie).

    • Elsie Otter says:

      Yup. He’s very lucky. I’m sure Dean would have more blame and anger if he didn’t get a healthy payout from Leann, if he had two kids (that he birthed) caught in the middle, and if Eddie were single white femaling and taunting him with his own kids. I’m not condoning any of Brandi’s actions, but she sure had it the worst out of all of them.

    • Insomniac says:

      Yeah. I agree that Brandi helps keep this going, but she’s got two kids with the crapweasel plus a stepmom who likes tormenting her. It would be harder for her to just walk away.

  5. Tiffany says:

    Dean also should remember that he walked away with some cash that allowed him to go on with this part of his life and career. Brandi is a hustler and trying to keep things going. I believe that if money exchanged hands between her and Eddie, we would not be seeing her as much.

    • GreenieWeenie says:

      but it sounds like the cash was earned. He apparently played a big role in her life as her manager and was successful at it (he said she’s never had a hit since).

      Seems like Brandi should’ve gotten more but for the life of me, I never really understand how alimony works.

      • K says:

        Brandi wanted to cash in on the scorned woman because she could have gotten a huge payout to if she signed some forms shut up and then she too could have chased her passion (which admittedly seems drinking). I totally get why she didn’t want to, I get why she had more anger at the time then dean because of the kids but hand to God at this point having watched members of my family go through divorice with kids and way less active parents then Eddie I can’t feel bad for her because she NEVER PUTS THOSE KIDS FIRST. It is always about her, her pain, her anger, her fame, her money, her lost love, her betrayal. She earned her moment of being pissed but this many years later sorry she is just a fame thirsty selfish person who doesn’t care about anyone but herself- especially her kids!

      • Emily C. says:

        “she is just a fame thirsty selfish person who doesn’t care about anyone but herself”

        Eddie sure has a type. Himself in skinny blonde woman form.

    • SleepyJane says:

      I thought Brandi was offered cash on top of what she got, but turned it down as she would have had to sign a NDA (Dean did sign one).

      • gwen says:

        Well if that’s the case then I’m glad Brandi didn’t sign the NDA otherwise we wouldn’t have her very informative books to read.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      K – no offense, but you can’t realistically compare divorce/custody situations in your own family or circle of friends to the very public humiliation and co-opting of her family that Brandi Glanville went through (and is still going through, thanks to LeAnn’s insistence on constantly publicizing every minute she spends with Brandi’s sons). It’s just not a fair or reasonable comparison. I’m no Brandi fan, but I do feel sympathy for her regarding the massive public torment LeAnn has put her through and continues to taunt her with. There’s really just no way we can compare that to any divorce/custody situations that play out privately, safe from the global coverage the Rimes-Cibrian-Glanville mess is still subject to.

      • Josephina says:

        LeAnne is NOT going anywhere. She is Eddie’s wife and has been with Eddie for 5-7 years. At this point, she controls how she reacts to people. If she was completely focused on her life, ie. MOVING ON from anything EDDIE/LEANNE and NOT COMMENTING on or SPEAKING to the public about anything LeAnne/Eddie…

        Then she would be further along than where she is now. She has the media following her BECAUSE SHE IS THE WIFE SCORNED/ WIFE DUMPED FOR ANOTHER WOMAN/ WIFE THAT DID NOT GET ENOUGH ALIMONY BECAUSE SHE MARRIED A JACKASS…

        The scorned wife got her a gig on RHOBH, vengeful fans, 2 books, photos of her being drunk with tampon string, lawsuit with Joanna Krupa, confrontation with another one of Eddie ‘s conquests, confrontation with nearly every cast member who does not want to behave like an ass in public. Let’s not add her countless inappropriate remarks. She has diarrhea in her mouth in one minute and then the other she has nasty things to say about people…cause she keeps it real, y’all.

        But go ahead and defend this sorry excuse for a woman. She had a choice in how to handle herself, and every time she chooses to the most obnoxious, crass, ass-backward way to resolve a conflict. Which is why she STAYS in conflict with someone.

      • dlo says:

        hey @Josephina > can you spew any more hate?

      • Trudy says:

        Josephina, why so hateful? I mean there’s Brandi bashing, then there’s your Brandi bashing which is in a category by itself.

  6. anne_000 says:

    Dean said on Brandi’s podcast that it was easier to leave this scandal behind because after the mess with LR, he didn’t live in the same state as her and didn’t have kids with her.

  7. Colette says:

    Pot meet kettle

  8. I’ve seen better pics of Dean, looks like he’s aping Jim Carrey.

  9. littlemissnaughty says:

    Well, LeAnn and Eddie are probably one of those couples who need drama. Who need that us vs. the world sh*t that makes everything more dramatic and passionate. The fact that they weren’t technically “allowed” to be together initially probably made things so hot and then that was gone and it was just another regular old marriage. They seem like massive drama queens.

  10. AmyB says:

    Once again, Dean comes across extremely emotionally mature and honest. You never hear any words reassembling responsibility coming from LeAnn, Eddie or Brandi. Dean takes responsibility for his own faults in the marriage, which takes a lot of maturity and insight to do. I wish him all the best and because I am in the restaurant business, I applaud his hard work as a Chef. I know what it takes to make it in that world, and it is TOUGH! Team Dean all the way!

  11. Cassieeee says:

    Dean should be thankful that Leann leaving him and givin him a settlement allowed him to live in NY and become a chef. Not everyone can afford those opportunities. I’m sure his book deal required that he mentioned her name! He seems okay but his sister is nuts and begging Andy to go in wwhl is desperate.

    Brandi is terrible and even acknowledged she used their credit card to fix her lady bits after they divorced. Doesn’t seem like money for her kids was on her mind then! Remember when she copied Leann’s chalk talk? Or when she said she would never talk about Leann and Eddie again after releasing her first book? Hahahahaha

    Leann should delete her Twitter, stop giving a crap, write a hit song and just do instagram. I actually like her insta posts!

    • paranormalgirl says:

      He owes her NOTHING. Absolutely NOTHING. (to address Cassieee’s comment before she edited it). He deserved his settlement. His wife committed adultery. He didn’t. Why should he be thankful?

    • Jess says:

      what? LeAnn is the only one still stalking and copying, even this weekend! The woman is insane, and if she didn’t want to pay her ex husband maybe she shouldn’t have cheated. At least Dean earned his pay from LeAnn and gave a crap about her career and image, Eddie takes her money and literally does nothing all day long, she’s gone way downhill since being with him.

    • AmyB says:

      Thankful for his then wife having an affair??? Are you kidding me??? I agree with @paranormalgirl, Dean owes LeAnn jack shit!!! Not only did she have an affair, but did so publically which had to have been so humiliating for both Dean and Brandi! Dean doesn’t owe her a thing — only thing he should be grateful for is that he escaped the crazy and was able to re-build his life into something much healthier and satisfying.

      • Not only that–but when there were rumors floating around that he was gay (and I’m sure those were started by some of her “friends”), she just laughed. This is someone who lives on twitter defending and blocking her “haters”…..and so when someone comes around and starts saying that her ex was/is gay, she chose to retweet that and laugh. She’s disgusting, and I’m sure he is glad that they didn’t have kids.

    • Christin says:

      I have no plans to spend any of my own money on anyone involved in this saga. However, I do believe two of the parties made lemonade out of lemons. And, I can believe Dean did have some impact on his then-wife appearing more normal and having some semblance of a career during their years together.

      • Cassieeee says:

        Lol agreed and dean is a total federline with less fertile sperm!

        I sometimes wonder if the media/fan comments about dean being gay and using Leann (which weren’t true) ever effected their relationship?

      • Nick says:

        Dean is a Federline? I think he was doing something right managing LR’s career b/c since the divorce I think she’s sold 27 total CDs of Spitfire and the Christmas albums. Leann’s career is in shambles since she left Dean but Dean is the bad guy? So many excuses.

      • funcakes says:

        He must have been doing something right because he keep that hot mess drama queen under wraps. There were stories making the rounds about her for years, but somehow he managed to keep all the demons under control.
        Now she’s known for cancelled gigs, twitter fights,plagerized chalk talk, stalking and maybe having to much love for tequila.
        And Dean had nothing to do with that. That’s all LeAnn .

      • puravidacostarica says:

        And LeAnn is also known for using the words “affected” and “effected” incorrectly. JS

      • Christin says:

        Just to clarify, I think he deserved a good settlement. And I hope he continues to fare well in the career he’s worked to have now. If I didn’t have a shelf full of cookbooks already, I might have bought a copy.

      • gwen says:

        Maybe Leann should also think about going back to school and finding another career. She’s no longer booking that many gigs as a singer. She should plan for her future while she’s still young, doubtful that Ed’s going to stick around after their 10 year mark, if even then.

    • Deanne says:

      You enjoy reading the plagiarized words of others? Calling yourself an artist and then always claiming you don’t know the name of the real author, is really low. So is changing a couple of words and calling the quote your own. LeAnn does both constantly. Chalk Talk is also something LeAnn copied off of Monica Potter, one of Eddie’s co-stars. She doesn’t seem capable of original thought. Leaving social media altogether would be good for her. She outs herself as a liar way too often and it exposes her mania and SWF behaviour.

    • Montréalaise says:

      His wife’s affair was actually a blessing a disguise, since it gave him the impetus to walk away from that unstable, self-absorbed woman, step out of her shadow, and fashion a career and life for himself that fulfills his hopes and dreams – not hers.

      • Christin says:

        Agree it was a blessing in disguise. Hard as it must have been, at least he was young enough to establish another career, marriage, etc., and move forward.

  12. TheSageM says:

    This guy is so much hotter than Eddie!

  13. Jess says:

    Dean is all around awesome, smart, sweet, hot, hard working, and loyal, doesn’t get better! I’m glad he didn’t have kids with LeAnn, mostly because I think she’d be a terrible mother who only cares about herself, but he was able to make a clean break and start over. He’s made a nice life for himself, while LeAnn is yet again cancelling concerts(like Brandi predicted) because she can’t trust her cheating husband, karma is really getting both her and Eddie.

    • Cassieeee says:

      I love how you are stating that you think Leann wouldn’t be a good mother. Righteous much?

      Brandi Granville is a terrible selfish person and I’m sure you think she is a good mother. Ha. If I was making assumptions about her, I’d say she is the worst parent in the world

      • Jess says:

        No, I’m going by the terrible way she treats Brandi’s sons, using them for personal gain in the media and to taunt their mother is sick. In my opinion, she’s too narcissistic to truly love anyone but herself. I’m not even a huge Brandi fan but you can tell she’s a good mother, and they do seem genuinely happier around her over Eddie and LeAnn, Mason especially. Plus if she truly cared about those boys she would respect their mother, and make sure Eddie did too, any decent man would anyway.

      • Elisabeth says:

        hi leann

      • funcakes says:

        LeAnn is a grown woman in crisis. She really needs time alone to live as an adult. She has these yes people around using her yet not helping her.
        LeAnn should cut everyone from her payroll then handle all her business on her own for a while. She should only use twitter to announce gigs she has.

      • puravidacostarica says:

        LeAnn also likes to use the word “righteous”. JS

      • Tate says:

        What’s the matter, Le? Edna still MIA?

      • funcakes says:

        Wouldn’t you if there was someone constantly emasculating you? Funny how she took a fuzzy picture of Eddie at the beach after people started turning up the heat on wondering where he was.
        How much can a man take? All he wants to do is sit pool side, drink tequila and go on vacation.
        But you can’t relax because your wife is constantly trying to prove something to strangers on social media. People she’ll never meet. Poor dude looks exhausted.
        Is it really worth it? Just go set up some acting gigs and leave already dude.
        I would be beyond pissed if I woke up each day to drama.

    • funcakes says:

      LeAnn would definitely benefit from a thesaurus.

  14. Sb says:

    I can’t wait for Dean to start having kids w his beautiful new wife. That’ll really put MeAnn over the edge. 😂😂

  15. someone says:

    I like the fact that he knew if he wanted a cooking career and wanted to become a cookbook author he needed to go to cooking school to get the background necessary. Too many celebrities put out cook books simply because of their name and not because they have any cooking experience. I wish Dean well, maybe he can become a Food Network staple like Katie Lee (Billy Joel’s ex wife).

    • paleokifaru says:

      I agree. I think it says a lot about his passion and commitment to his career. Glad he was able to focus and move on.

  16. Deanne says:

    Divorce without children involved, isn’t easy and devoid of pain by any means, but you have the option of never seeing or speaking to your ex again. A change of scenery can do wonders for the psyche. Having to share custody with your ex, often puts limits on where you can live. Brandi has stated that she’d have loved to have been able to move away, but sharing custody makes it impossible. L. A. is a very expensive place to live and unlike Eddie, she doesn’t have soneone paying all of her bills. She has to work hard to provide for her sons. Dean is very fortunate to have been able to pursue his passion for cooking without having to worry about supporting children, or being limited location wise. He seems like a really sweet guy and I hope his cookbook does well and gives him more exposure as a chef and food personality. He comes across very well on the cooking segments I’ve seen him do on The Talk.

    • Cassieeee says:

      Brandi also just said she doesn’t know what the high road is. I felt bad for her originally having to deal with the cheating but she has ruined any good will. She should be removing the anger, hurt and media for the children. It is not healthy for a person to be obsessed with their ex for seven years!

      • Deanne says:

        Actually, the same could be said for her ex-husband. Eddie never shut about her on his failed reality show. If my husband talked about his ex that much, I’d be very concerned that he wasn’t over her. The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference and Eddie C. isn’t indifferent to Brandi at all. I think that contributes to LeAnn’s obsession with copying her.

      • @Deanne
        Exactly. I watched a few episodes of their show…….every single episode, one or both of them referenced Brandi. And not only that, but in the beginning credits of the show, they had video footage of the boys–after blocking Brandi from being able to show them in the background of her show.

      • Deanne says:

        @Virgilia C. The show should have been called LeAnn and Eddie, featuring special guest star Brandi Glanville. Those two are such hypocrites. Trotting the kids out for pap strolls constantly, making money off of them on LeAnn’s pay to view website and using them for their show, after going to court to stop their Mother from having them in the background of hers.

      • funcakes says:

        Eddie never shut up about her because there’s a thin line between love and hate. Which drives LeAnn out of her ever loving mind. Eddie loves playing his head games with LeAnn. Its no coincidence that she emulates Brandi.
        But all this could’ve been avoided if Eddie told LeAnn that he loved her for they way she looked and there was no need to try to emulate anyone . Yeah, good luck on that one.

      • Christin says:

        The one and only surprise from the reality show was how he brought up his children’s mother, ‘worked’ on the vehicle her father gave them, etc. That may be the glue that binds his current relationship, who knows.

      • gwen says:

        Brandi isn’t at all obsessed with her ex husband and as far as the high road, Leann can’t even find the exit.

      • Tate says:

        Lol, the only one obsessed with that perpetually unemployed “man” is LeAnn.

  17. Penelope says:

    Dean seems classy, sweet, and mature. Plus he’s cuter than Eddie. Go Dean!

    • Jane says:

      Definitely. I raised my eyebrows a bit at a recent pix of him shirtless cutting up chocolate for hot cocoa. His abs were so ripped. 😉 He makes Eddie’s flab look more like Jabba the Hut.

  18. funcakes says:

    Dean must be happy that he no longer has to make sure that LeAnn uphold her obligations.
    LeAnn bailed on a gig just like she did last year around this time. Eddies been away filming for his return to “Baby Daddy” and LeAnn is frantic.
    She started her alibi a couple of days before eventually cancelling her Canadian gig. She did manage to go shopping the day before. And as usual she made a quick recovery by Sunday.
    All this to make sure Eddie is not seducing anyone on the set like he did with LeLe. What a lucky girl.

    • Deanne says:

      And you know she tagged along to Friday’s taping. Just what every actor wants. Their guest star’s sick wife, hanging around the set, spreading her germs to everyone. Funny how she’s too sick to fullfill her commitments, but can go shopping and carry tons of bags to her car and then hit the beach for sone #stepsonlove. She lies and lies and lies.

      • Nick says:

        Her lies are so obvious, she doesn’t even try.

        How do her fans not see this? Is it simply because she tweets back and forth with them and because of it they are willing to overlook anything?

      • funcakes says:

        She never bothered to let her fans snowshoes cancelling. Some PR person announced it. You would think she would have the common decency to let them know herself. People might have rearranged their vacation time around that concert. Someone might have traveled a long distance. But LeAnn could care less.

      • Christin says:

        So he is part of that show again, after it was shelved to be re-scripted, re-cast, or whatever?

      • Deanne says:

        @Christin No, it’s Baby Daddy. It looks like he’s on another couple of episodes. It’s so weird for her to have to folow him to work, Stage five clinger or what? It must be suffocating.

      • Christin says:

        @Deanne – Thank you. Got the show names mixed up. I had a feeling the other one was beyond repair, since it didn’t make it past a table reading.

    He’s got it right. Those three goat mouths need each other to feed off..otherwise what do any of them really have? The singer isn’t singing, the actor isn’t really acting, and the drunk mom is barely momming. So…Team Dean. At least he’s cooking.

    • Nana says:

      Kri are you personally following Brandi 24/7 to know she’s drunk 24/7 or a terrible mother. You know nothing about Brandi’s personal life, only what the tabs print, most is not true.

      • Josephina says:

        We have seen her show her ass on TV and in print on more than one occasion. She has a filthy mouth to boot. She is crass because that is who she is. The ugly divorce just allowed the public to see how raunchy she can really be.

        And comparing her to another raunchy person does NOT make her LESS raunchy. She is a woman that ran her tell-all, filthy mouth far too long about her personal business in order to get back at her ex– that is revenge against your children’s father whom they love very much. Great job at being a mother.

        This tit-for-tat game is the reason why there IS a triangle. All you have to do is bow out. But, as long as your anger and your feelings mean that much to you, you are going to be controlled by your irrational emotions AND you will never turn down a catfight to save your life. Brandi has won absolutely nothing, which is why she should have exited long, long ago.

        Why in the world would you DARE serve your personal business up for public consumption unless you love drama?!?

      • Deanne says:

        @Josephina Maybe you shoukd ask LeAnn. She lives and dies on social media and it’s earned her an incredible amount of scorn. Why does she DARE to set herself up that way? One might presume she’s not very smart. Oh I forgot, you hold a total, double standard in that regard. LeAnn gets to do what she wants, whenever she wants and everyone has to like it and Brandi and everyone else needs to live in the shadows, silent and accepting. I get that an only child, raised to be a raving narcissist, might want it to work that way, but it doesn’t. If Brandi is trash, LeAnn’s even bigger trash. She claims to take the high road, all while crawling on her belly, in the gutter.

      • ilovegossip says:

        Brandi states it almost daily, that she is drinking and or drunk (even wrote a book about it). I’ve seen on HER social media what a poor Mother she is. You don’t have to read tabloids to know it. Just read her twitter feed. She once tweeted “two little boys better keep their mother f*cking mouths shut”. What kind of Mother does that? A poor excuse for one in my book. She married a man without having her kids approval or even them being there to take part in the ceremony (you know, like most FAMILIES do, not selfish Mother’s…). It’s all there for everyone to see.

  20. My Two Cents says:

    Dean is such an awesome guy. He deserved to be treated so much better than he was. The crazy thing is she traded so far down when she left Dean for this current idiot. She is much better suited to someone like Eddiot though. I doubt Dean walked away with much of a settlement because I bet there wasn’t much left. He agreed with B in interview when she said she ended up with almost nothing that he didn’t either.
    Brandi earned whatever she’s made off of it. Leann and her posse bullied B on line relentlessly when the divorce was still fresh and she was hurting. I don’t get when somebody tells her get over it now. She is so over it except for the kids. I still reference my ex from time to time. It was a big chunk of her life.

  21. Andrea says:

    I have a strong suspicion that Eddie isn’t the first man she’s cheated on Dean with. I think Jon Bongiovi was another one she had an affair with, but didn’t fall for him

    • Tate says:

      There were rumors that they had an affair and she tried to snag him but somehow he escaped her. Guess Jon is a little smarter than Ed.

      • funcakes says:

        That was a blind item that everyone guessed was LeAnn and Jon. I have no idea if the blind item was reveal.

      • Deanne says:

        He’s also got money and doesn’t need his bills paid, unlike Edna, who was deeply in debt and living well above his means. He isn’t stupid enough to let a C-list clinger like LeAnn, set him up to have a tape of their hook-up released. Eddie doesn’t exactly ooze intelliigence. He just sort of oozes in general.

      • Andrea says:

        Yeah, I’ve read the same rumours. Then I saw that live performance, Jon and LR duett on stage, saw their body language, and was convinced

  22. yep says:

    The absolute pain of loving someone, neglecting your own dreams for theirs, that person then get some strange and leaves you for a person who is less than, is debilitating. Especially if that went very public.
    Its humilating, embarrassing, and leaves you spiritually depleted, when blindsided.
    Im glad he found a way through that shit show. Im sorry he wasted those years with LeAnn when she couldn’t care less. It was all about the dick for her. Never thought twice the wreckage she helped create. Still doesnt.
    So kudos for him. Hes got the world by the tail now.

  23. Snowpea says:

    I have a very strong feeling our old mate Leann is here today doing what she does best – Brandi bashing.

    Anyone who’s been paying attention knows it goes like this: Leann is a deranged stalker, Eddie is a gormless loser, Brandi is doing the best she can with those nutjobs as coparents and Dean is lucky he escaped from his marriage and is now riding high on life.

    Poor Brandi – she drew the shortest straw didn’t she?

    • Deanne says:

      Some people are just too obvious. Syntax, writing style, etc., give it away. So does the whole ” Brandi’s trashy”, “everything’s Brandi’s fault”, blah, blah, blah. It’s the same ranting and raving as seen on his Twitter account. It isn’t even creative like the posts that state “I’m no LeAnn Rimes fan” and then bash Brandi while praising Margaret. What we all fail to understand, is that Brandi was supposed to crawl away and disappear. She was supposed to ” go work at McDonald’s”, hand over her children to Squint One and Squint Two and never dare say a word about the crap hand she was dealt. Instead, she helped expose Eddie as the d-bag he is and LeAnn as the narcissistic, mental case she is. Of course Roger defends her. She PAYS his husband and therefore they benefit from doing her bidding, which is of course, bashing the boys real Mother. I think that both of these two bullying, cowardly men are going to be in for a pretty harsh reality check, when the boys see what they’ve said to and about their Mother.

      • funcakes says:

        Well it’s on the internet for the world to see. No matter how long LeAnn and her circle cries about her being harassed there are pictures of the tweets out there forever.
        That’s the great thing about the web. Everything can be saved no matter how far you go back and delete there’s a group of people that saved your tweets.
        So delete, delete, delete all you want because the truth is out there saved at a fun little website where everything typed is archived.

      • funcakes says:

        You’re so right. It’s the same thing every time. You can tell who they are:
        -First it’s the.” Were you there? Because I was.” defense. Yes, we are there because every fart is tweeted out.
        –Then it’s “Why are you not using your picture ? You must be unattractive.” Which is the equivalent of “I know you are but what am I?”
        –Then they challenge a person to meet them so they can show them the kind of person they are. (Whatever that means,I would pass)
        -Then when frustrated the person continues to lace the conversation with profanity which is usually one minute into the argument.

      • Deanne says:

        @funcakes The challenging them to a meeting is really odd. It’s actually done in a threatening tone too, which is kind of counterproductive when you are trying to convince others that you and your ” closest friend” are wonderful people. Do they plan on flying across the globe to win over the ” haters”, or are the ” haters” supposed to fly themselves to Roger and Darrell? Considering that LeAnn, surrounded by fans of hers who harrassed and abused Brandi for years, called a non-fan to win her over and then turned around and sued the woman, I doubt that many will be chomping at the bit to take up the offer of a personal meeting. They basically confirm what most assume. LeAnn is surrounded by paid sycophants, who tell her what she wants to hear and who are probably beyond inappropriate around Brandi’s sons, given their penchant for insulting and demeaning their Mother.

      • funcakes says:

        Your right. No one in that group has a filter. I have a feeling that’s why that older boy is rarely seen in family photos and when he is in pictures he hugging his Dad.

      • Cici says:

        Roger seems like he could be dangerously unstable to me. I have looked at some of the things he’s tweeted and there is a very real threatening undertone to them. It bothers me to think that the boys could be around this creep.

  24. Jess says:

    But none of those women were taunted that badly the way LeAnn has done from the get go. I can see how it would drive any sane woman crazy. No way in hell I’d stand for that so publicly either. LeAnn has been dangling her prized pig in front of Brandi since day one, and those children too, they don’t belong to her and I think she hates that, some of the things she does are truly frightening and not normal. I can’t figure out why someone hasn’t stopped her, surely they see how mentally unstable she is, everyone else does.

  25. Snowpea says:

    This is in reply to ‘Josephina’ above.

    You’ve got to be kidding right? There’s no other woman in Hollywood who has had to tolerate her children spending half the time with a madwoman as unhinged, vindictive, malicious, scary, obsessive, deranged and downright terrifying as the single white female that is Rimes.

    Run along Leann. The game is up, dear. You are the most hated woman in Hollywood and quite frankly, it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person.

    • Dlo says:

      Team snowpea

    • Cici says:

      She really has outed herself as being a few sandwiches short of a picnic. I always thought she was a little unhinged, but I assumed it would die down and she’d return to focusing on her career. People forget and forgive pretty quickly when celebs disappear for a while and get their act together before making a comeback attempt. Many are successful too. I think it’s over for LeAnn though. Her behavior is just bizarre and unsettling. I just don’t understand why no one will get her the help she so obviously needs.

  26. funcakes says:

    Eddie’s co star tweeted how sexy he was. I’m sure she was being harmless and that she already has a boyfriend. But we all know LeAnn is breathing fire. She’s made no mention of Eddie returning to work. The last time we saw Ed was Valentine day weekend then he vanished.
    It must have been bad because she post no pictures of presents he and the boys bought her.

    I hope Eddie is really relaxing from his little drama momma. It must be nice to arrive on set with people who are not worrying if social media likes them or not. I wonder if she’s even allowed on the set after past incidents. If Eddie wants a few days of peace and quiet will suggest to security to keep his better half away so he can concentrate.

    Go ahead Eddie you deserve it.

    • Christin says:

      I saw him in a circa-2000 movie the other day, and barely recognized him. I’d never heard of him until this saga started. He did not have many lines, and was clearly the eye candy.

      Since his career was based on looks more than acting ability, he has to realize now is the time to work. I don’t believe it’s solely because of his wife tagging along and preventing him from working.

  27. Blackbetty says:

    Leannes an idiot for leaving Dean. Heaps hotter and more successful!

  28. Really? says:

    Dean comes across as a classy, mature and emotionally stable guy. Can’t wait to see that shirtless picture of him with chocolate. Dean appears to be quite the catch and you know he is a hard worker because you have to be in that line of business. A man that is a great cook or is a chef is soooooo sexy. Leeann appears to be quite the fool, and unstable as well. I have read about her canceling shows before to keep track of her cheating husband. (Once a cheater always a cheater) additionally, she obviously does not have any respect for her fan base which is career suicide in my opinion. If I was involved in business with her I would sue her for the canceled show and ask for all kinds of monetary damages.

  29. ilovegossip says:

    LeAnn and Eddie have also moved on. They have gone on, living a great life as a family with a stable environment. Brandi is the one that can’t move on. She can’t give an interview or podcast without mentioning them in some way. And her continued tweets about it also. It’s time for ALL of them to move on.

    • Cici says:

      It doesn’t seem stable to me. If she is so happy with him, why is she on social media all day every day trying to push their “happy” relationship down everyone’s throat? Happy people don’t worry about what other people think. She really needs to step away from social media. If she and Eddie are happy, then great, enjoy that and don’t worry about trying to convince others of it.

      • ilovegossip says:

        Why can’t you take it for what it is. She’s sharing her life and happiness with her FANS. If you’re not a fan, then don’t look. It’s obvious they are a happy family… and if she wants to share that with her fans, that is her prerogative. You don’t have to look.

    • Cici says:

      @ilovegossip I do take it for what it is. I just expressed my opinion. Not everyone is going to share your love of LeAnn.
