Eddie Cibrian slams Brandi Glanville’s stalking claims as ‘made up drama’

2017 Winter TCA Tour - FOX All-Star Party - Arrivals

On Friday, we discussed Brandi Glanville and how she was seemingly reigniting her years-long feud with her ex-husband and his second wife, Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes. Over the years, we’ve seen with our own eyes how LeAnn has single-white-female’d the sh-t out Brandi, and from what Brandi said last week, it seems to still be happening. LeAnn wants to wear the same clothes as Brandi. LeAnn wants to wear the same shoes as Brandi. LeAnn wants to go to the same plastic surgeon, the same gym, the same doctors, the same stores, the same restaurants, the same soccer games, the same everything. It’s been said many times that if LeAnn could figure out a way to wear Brandi’s skin as her own, LeAnn would do it. Brandi’s conversation last week was nothing new. The only new information was that, according to Brandi, LeAnn is still engaged in those kinds of things.

Well, Eddie Cibrian has had enough. So he released a statement, defending his current wife. His main argument is that Brandi is lying – ?? – about one part, about one example she used. Brandi said that LeAnn and LeAnn’s friend Kiki have been stalking Brandi’s social media and the social media of her new boyfriend, and that LeAnn followed Brandi to Nobu in Malibu, and that LeAnn brought Brandi and Eddie’s sons to Nobu to really dig the knife in. Eddie says that Brandi has it wrong, because LeAnn had reservations at Nobu for days and I guess it was all just one big coincidence that LeAnn showed up at Nobu at the exact same time as Brandi and her boyfriend. Here’s what Eddie said:

“I normally don’t respond to Brandi’s foolishness but I will not allow false and reverse accusations to go unanswered about my wife,” Cibrian said in a statement. “LeAnn is a fantastic stepmom to the boys and is always gracious to their mother. Having to put up with Brandi’s made up drama all the time is extremely frustrating. After eight years we should have one priority, making sure two incredible kids are loved and remain happy and healthy. But every couple of months there is another accusation coming from Brandi in an attempt to drum up drama to stay relevant.”

“LeAnn and I did not nor have we ever ‘shown up’ at places where Brandi will be,” he said. “Why would we do that? Makes no sense. We had a reservation held at Nobu five days before Brandi posted she was going. Here is the proof and if anyone needs more, call Nobu and they will confirm.”

He posted a screenshot of a text message exchange between Rimes and her assistant, in which the singer asks her five days beforehand to make a dinner reservation for four, including the kids, at the restaurant.

Earlier this week, Glanville appeared on E!’s Daily Pop, where she speculated Cibrian will divorce Rimes after 10 years of marriage, saying that in California, after that time frame, “you are entitled to half of everything that the other person has.”

Cibrian said that “for Brandi to openly predict and hope for the end of our marriage” is “sad” and “sick.”

“This is not healthy behavior,” he said. “I’m very concerned.”

[From E! News]

I’m including Eddie’s evidence below.

Brandi replied:

And Brandi spent a while replying to people on Twitter, tweeting stuff like, “I can’t block her from my life. She’s married to my ex. I just want to be left alone. She knows what she’s doing. I’ve been quiet too long.” And: “I’ve tried to get along. We celebrated boy’s birthdays together & she acted ridiculous at Jake’s party. I’ve taken a lot, I’m just tired.” I have to admit… even if the Nobu thing was just a coincidence, it’s not like that negates literally everything else. And for Eddie to sit there are say that Brandi isn’t exhibiting “healthy” behavior… it’s just like, dude, look at your current wife. I feel like I’ve been taking crazy pills.

    He’s an even bigger schmuck than I originally thought. Perhaps LR raised his allowance for agreeing to say all these things.

    • Christin says:

      He stayed off the radar, but then that short-lived reality show illustrated their common bond. And that is to slam the ex (mother of his children) repeatedly.

    • beth says:

      eddie the liar, he truly is the sour and sorry butt, kept gigolo; he does not work, just lives off his soul mates dwindiling finances get a job, pull up those big boy pants and get a job to help support those kids Walmarts is hiring greeters

    • doofus says:

      “Perhaps LR raised his allowance for agreeing to say all these things.”

      or threatened to take it away if he didn’t.

      “I’m very concerned”

      bish, the only thing you’re “concerned” about is that your cray-cray wife is going to figure out that Brandi is probably right about the ten-year mark. you’re just upset that Brandi said it out loud and now you’re going to have to wait longer than 10.

      • Linda says:

        Yup, 4 more years. And then the end shall come.

      • Christin says:

        Oh, to know if he might have actually said something that caused her to spill that prediction.

        He looks absolutely worn out. Big change from the old days, when he would grin for pap strolls and beach trips.

  2. Beth says:

    Leanne probably wrote that tweet herself

  3. ronaldinhio says:

    This guy is such a loser.
    How Glanville puts up with he and Rimes is a miracle.
    It shows how threatened Rimes is of Glanville probably because he is such a loser

  4. Ramona says:

    Someone explain that final screenshot. Does it mean that you can tell who watches your snapchats? Because thats pretty damning evidence of obsession to be watching your husbands exes new boyfriend on snapchat.

  5. FLORC says:

    Lol.. yea she’s SWFing her still… And it was incredibly obvious when they had that tv show. Every episode of the few that aired centered around Brandi and Leann’s obsession with social media. And by that i mean they constantly knew what she was up to and complained about her. So, no part of this is a stretch.

    At the very least these 2 bond over Brandi. If it was healthy and mature I can’t see how either would tolerate this continued interest in his ex. Nothing to do with coparenting. Just bullies.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Plus, their fixation must be exhausting for all involved. Like, why should they care if Brandi has found happiness in her post-divorce life?

      • Gwen says:

        They care because they’re both jealous of Brandi and the fact that she’s finally found a decent man and she’s happy. Ed & Leann are obviously miserable with each other.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Yep. But LR puts so much effort into their social media pretense of a blissful life, when the most effective way to show how content you are is to go about your own business and wish others well.

      • FLORC says:

        I forgot who said it, but to paraphrase…
        Love and hate aren’t opposites because they share something. Passion.
        The opposite of passion is indifference.
        If you lack that passion. Those raging, overtaking thoughts and emotions about someone or something. Then you’re over it.

        Pathetic this is something that’s been going on for so long.

  6. Tate says:

    He is such a slimey a$$hole and rimes is clearly mentally unstable. Brandi has her faults but I can’t help but feel for her for having to put up with this level of crazy.

  7. Carrie says:

    Eddie is the better looking version of Donald Trump. Lie. Obfuscate. Project. Make statements only a qualified psychologist after several consultations could make. He’s a manipulative loser which tends to go hand in hand with his brand of cheater.

    Until today I didn’t realize how much of a favor Leanne did for Brandi in taking this guy on. Also didn’t realize he was the *same* as Leanne which shouldn’t be surprising I guess but WOW.

    Good on Brandi. I am so happy she’s not married to this creep anymore.

    ETA: I thought texts could be faked. Went to look at his twitter for this and others replied with similar showing it can be faked and going in on him. He has deleted this tweet now. WOW. If this isn’t him on his own twitter, and if Leanne did this, she has killed any credibility he had.

    • KB says:

      Yeah, texts can definitely be faked. Google “fake text” and you’ll get pages of websites and App Store links to fake iPhone message apps.

      And do famous people really need to make reservations at Nobu five days in advance? Like how low is her star power?

      ETA: Someone doctored the screenshot of the text in reply to the tweet and made Leann say to call a psych ward for her, so…yeah it can be done. https://mobile.twitter.com/californguy/status/873352962315255808/photo/1

      • Christin says:

        In the time she allegedly typed that directive to her “assistant” (or whatever her title is), she could have handled the task herself. Are these z-listers so busy they have to farm out mundane tasks that take one minute to do?

      • AnnaKist says:

        I find it odd that she even has an “assistant”. It’s not as if she’s inundated with work to the point where she can’t make a bloody phone call. She does bugger-all, so what does she need assistance with?

        Her jealousy and SWFing is all too familiar. My son’s partner does es the same to my daughter. She couldn’t tolerate their closeness, so put a wedge between them with her gaslighting, manipulation, twisting stories and events and out-and-out lies. It’s now at the point where brother and sister don’t speak, and son and mother don’t speak, despite the fact that we’ve always been very good to his parter. That’s the thanks we gotta t for all our help and support, and even giving her a home when her own father tossed her out. Some people are just toxic, no matter what you do or don’t do.

        If Ediot was any kind of man, he’d have told his ex and current one, long ago, to grow the eff up and stop the drama altogether, instead of involving himself like a little itchbay.

      • Christin says:

        @AnnaKist – I am sorry about your situation. When that type of multi-level manipulation happens, the perpetrator is often well-versed at how to appear the victim.

      • WingKingdom says:

        5:45 strikes me as an oddly specific time for a dinner 5 days ahead. Like, if you want a reservation you’d say somewhere around six, right? And you’d end up with 5:45 when they schedule you. So I think the text is fake.

  8. Jenni says:

    Brandi is not able to function when things go well in her life. She is not able to be happy. She is self-destructing person. People who watch RHOBH know what I’m talking about.

    • CynicalAnn says:

      I’m not a huge Brandi fan-I think she’s tacky and a messy drunk. But Leann is absolutely single white female-ing her and has been for years. This creepy behavior is on Leann, and Eddie for backing her up (if he even did-I think Leann wrote this) and certainly not on Brandi.

    • Lady D says:

      She functioned very well for years and years before that psycho came into her and her boy’s lives.

    • Lime says:

      Never watched Brandi on the show but have followed Leann’s antics for years. Brandi obviously had to play things up to stay on the show and generate headlines, but I’m sure she’s wacky as well. Leann on the other hand is full-blown nutty with a really nasty streak if you look at her pinterest, awful and hateful lyrics, etc. Really aggressive and intense.

  9. Jess says:

    Right, we’ll believe the gold digging loser who can’t hold a job and was once busted sleeping with 3 different women at the same time. Let’s have him release the statement about lying, lol. He didn’t bother mentioning WHY his wife is watching Brandi’s boyfriends snapchats, or why they’d have her uninvited to that party. Even if his proof is real, which I highly doubt because that’s so easy to fake, LeAnn still knew Brandi was at that restaurant and they could’ve gone elsewhere to celebrate step moms day, simply out of respect. Eddie and LeAnn claim to be so happy and over it but they’re so full of bitterness and hatred it’s ridiculous, happy people don’t act like they do!

    • Linda says:

      I know now that those 2 are absolutely miserable. And I LOVE knowing it!!

    • CynicalAnn says:

      He’s not even a good gold digger-he picked her.

      • Jess says:

        Yeah I doubt she’s still rolling in money like she once was, she plays at country fairs and half empty casinos, something tells me her ego wouldn’t allow her to do that if she didn’t absolutely have to. It’s embarrassing seeing how far the girl has fallen from fame, and for a guy like Eddie.

      • Sophia's Side eye says:

        But he didn’t really pick Leanne did he? Just ended up with her when all his other women dumped him. Complete gold digger fail on Edna’s part. lol

      • Lime says:

        Don’t they have financial problems and owe friends serious cash? She was crying when talking about how she had to become humble. She spends like crazy on designer stuff to spite Brandi and doesn’t seem to be generating that much income with her failed albums and seriously small time tours.

      • Gwen says:

        A couple dates per month isn’t ‘touring’

  10. The New Classic says:

    I’m not an expert, but I’m pretty sure screen shots like that can be faked fairly easily. I remain unconvinced of LeAnne’s’ innocence. At the very least, she remains a SWF stalker. 😐

    • Lafawnda says:

      I agree with you. I think screenshots are bs. Almost anything can be doctored to look a certain way these days.

    • Sophia's Side eye says:

      There are many apps and sites to create fake messages. I used to read a blog of a guy’s text messages with his dog. Hilarious btw.

    • Lime says:

      Even if it were a coincidence, it’s totally something she would do and she still has a long history of SWFing that can’t be wiped out.

    • Teebee says:

      I think it is so obvious that text was faked. First, if it’s LeAnn, why is she texting from someone else’s phone, isn’t she surgically attached to her own phone?

      And if she puts that request in, to an assistant, why is that hired hand not just agreeing to calling and doing as asked? Why refer to a restaurant as an office, and wait till the next day? Or why say you have to go to the office the next day before you can make a reservation? Aren’t restaurants open alllll night, you don’t call an office to make a reservation. Plus, most reservations are done online. for people whose lives are completely controlled by their devices, calling directly to make a dinner reservation seems anachronistic. Finally, if it’s not even LeAnn, but this Kiki character, why isn’t she just making the reservation herself? So idiotic, to use these two insipid lines of text to try and exonerate themselves from a situation that is so ridiculous in the first place!

      Finally, it seems ridiculous for someone who is on their phone all day, all the time, to need to request someone to do something so simple. Ed and LeAnn majorly miscalculated this one. If this is the sword they’re dying on to prove how innocent they are, and how vindictive Brandi is, they’re more stupid than I ever thought. Using this text as proof, they show LeAnn to be just as entitled and spoiled as we all think she is, and because this text is so easy to see as doctored, no one will believe it anyway.


      Just goes to show yet again, how thin skinned LeAnn is. How she cares too much what others think of her, rather than merely revel in her glorious perfect marriage. The woman is a landfill size of neuroses, paranoia and miscalculation. I don’t pity her, but man, her life is miserable if this is how she spends her time. Ironically wanting to be loved and adored, yet through her own doing, being ridiculed and mocked.

  11. Mia4s says:

    I hesitate to make this comment because it’s about such a personal choice (even for crazy women 😬), but is anyone else surprised Leanne has never gone the route of locking this down with a baby? Through typical ways or not (she certainly has the money)? I mean if her preference is not to have additional kids to her step kids that’s 100% fine and valid and good, but I don’t recall any indication that was the case. This was always such an unhealthy situation I figured it would be the next step…possibly for all the wrong reasons. Heaven knows the two kids already in this situation deal with enough. Ugh…I hope I haven’t just jinxed things.

    • Merritt says:

      Having a baby doesn’t lock anything down. Brandi is proof of that.

      • Mia4s says:

        Definitely a fair point. But I have no doubt she would consider herself the exception to the rule. 😒

    • Beth says:

      Maybe she can’t have children or he’s fixed. She has talked about wanting a baby with Eddie though.
      When people have kids to keep their marriage strong, it just ends up making the divorce more difficult and painful.

    • Christin says:

      This is one of the few positives about it — that they haven’t brought another child into it. The child would likely be a PR prop anyway. The boys look about over the pap walks nowadays.

    • CynicalAnn says:

      Wasn’t the story that Eddie was secretly fixed? Also she’s on some kind of med where she shouldn’t get pregnant. Pretty sure she doesn’t want to take a chance of losing his attention and thinks keeping her body will ensure he doesn’t cheat on her . (ha-ha.)

    • Magnoliarose says:

      Yeah I can’t see her resisting this route if she could. I think she can’t for whatever reason. I suspect he is snipped.

    • KB says:

      She’s always been a pretty heavy drinker, hasn’t she? I seem to remember some stories about pills too. Eddie’s got a type!

      • Lime says:

        She took laxatives non-stop apparently and one of the stepsons found it and thought it was candy and ate it, resulting in an ER visit and public berating by Brandi.

    • WingKingdom says:

      What everyone else said, PLUS she is pretty obsessed with her body and I can’t imagine her being willing to share it with a baby for 9 months.

      Maybe if she can get KiKi to carry it. And breastfeed it. And raise it.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yeah, I’ve wondered that too. Cause you just know she’s the psycho type that thinks if she has a baby, she’ll have him forever

    • sarah says:

      Didn’t Eddie cheat on Brandi when she was pregnant? Leann is probably terrified that if she gains weight he’ll cheat/leave.

      On top of that, maybe Eddie doesn’t want to be chained to this one for life once he takes the money and runs?

  12. cake says:

    What else does Rimes have to do BUT watch everything that goes on in Brandi’s life.

    She is very immature and has spent most of her childhood being a child star–did she go to regular highschool?? she is soooo high school, most things she did not get to do and has not been taught boundaries/relating stuff. She has never grown up. I bet you she is soooo weird around other pretty women and her conversation is immature w/crazy eyes.

    I’m sure she stalks unknown pretty ladies/mothers on instagram as well, looking for a personality to mimick… just weird.

    • Christin says:

      I actually remember a teeny little mention in the news when she was pulled from middle school. Supposedly she was being bullied, which is a story in itself. But no, she didn’t attend regular high school.

    • Birdix says:

      Cake, I saw her at the beach one day a few years ago–she had rented a house in my hometown and I was walking home with my kids. I was looking at her curiously bc she was sitting in a place that was odd to be lounging in a bikini (off the beach, on a grassy place near the street). She looked up and I got that immediate pre-thinking jolt of “crazy eyes–be careful!” before realizing, from reading about her here, who she was. If I had hackles, they’d all have raised at those crazy eyes.

      • cake says:

        I KNEW it, LOL!
        you probably were effortlessly looking cute too…enjoying your babies.

  13. Joy says:

    Leann might have a leg to stand on if we hadn’t all watched her buy the same purses and shoes as Brandi. Brandi is by no means likeable, but having someone try to BE you has to be nerve wracking.

  14. Lexilla says:

    What’s a “reverse accusation?”

    • Lirko says:

      Was wondering that myself…

    • Sophia's Side eye says:

      Leanne probably convinced him that Brandi followed them to Nobu. Actually, I think it’s Leanne who tweeted this stuff, so she probably thinks she can make it look like it was Brandi doing the stalking… fkg lol

  15. Jan says:

    This is absolutely ridiculous. Brandi obviously telling lies trying to stay relevant and in the news. This has nothing to do with Eddi or whether he’s scum or not. This has to do with a drunken witch who can’t let it go and is still riding this same old tired story! MOVE ON BRANDI!!!

    • Jess says:

      Lol, sure. Hard to move on when someone copies your every move, and her stalking has been proved hundreds of times over the years.

      • Alex says:

        Right? It’s easily believable considering Leann has pulled some shady online stalking on non-famous people or at the very least harassment.

    • themummy says:

      Jan, you’re awfully defensive for someone who isn’t LeAnn herself. (You’re also completely wrong. Everyone has watched LeAnn Single White Female Brandi for years now. LeeAnn is very insecure and probably actually crazy. Brandi isn’t perfect, but I definitely feel for her with all LeAnn has done to her over the years. This is, in fact, the general consensus on this.)

    • joanne says:

      the problem is every time Brandi moves on, leann moves one 1 step behind. Brandi is quite happy to enjoy her time with her boys, her boyfriend, her family, her friends and her work. leann has none of that except work she avoids like the plague. Brandi ignores leann as much as possible but when leann started using the boys as weapons, all bets are off. as Brandi said, she’s tired of it and wants it to be over. every time though, leann escalates.

    • CynicalAnn says:

      Oh hi Leann. Eye roll. You’re either her or one of her paid minions if you’re putting this on Brandi. Leann has copied everything about her from the beginning-so creepy.

    • Christin says:

      Sure, Jan.

      Seriously, whether one approves of B’s personality, there is too much smoke that supports her claims. I would actually be equally if not more infuriated at how those kids are seemingly used as PR props on a regular basis.

    • Penelope says:

      Sure, Jan. 😉

    • Emily says:

      Leanne is projecting. Move on Leann!

    • WingKingdom says:

      Jan is right about one thing- this has nothing to do with whether or not Eddie is scum. I think we can all agree on that point, and recognize that he is the worst. I can almost feel sorry for Leann, ending up with him and having to cling to that marriage for her own ego. What a nightmare. But you break it, you buy it, right?

    • beth says:

      Jan— Hi there Leann, you are so obvious.

  16. Leala says:

    Soooo, what about the other 5674893 examples of Le SWF-ing B? And just bc she “had a reservation” (don’t believe it), she still stalked DJ’s snaps. No way Eddie wrote that. LAR posted and deleted some quote on her IG Friday night after this story broke. I’m sure it was killing her not to respond, but she had “Eddie” defend her to try and garner some sympathy. Sorry sweetie- your crazy is out there and undeniable. I can’t even imagine what she’s like IRL.

  17. Merritt says:

    I can’t imagine wanting to be anything like Brandi Glanville. Her life seems blah to me.

    • Bettyrose says:

      I think it’s more that she wants to be the object of Eddie’s desire, and Brandi represents that (he cheated but in the end Brandi had the power because he wanted her back). It’s not rational but there it is.

    • Lady D says:

      Far more fun to be a sadistic, pill-popping, narcissistic, alcoholic stalker who puts small children in harm’s way, amiright?

    • paleokifaru says:

      They already both seem to have a fair amount in common to me in that I find them to both be trashy drama queens with horrible taste in men! But I do agree with Bettyrose that L has some twisted idea that B won E at an earlier point and so is now always trying to one up her. As a 2nd wife myself I have great sympathy for how uncomfortable that role can be at first but 1) L was also married before so I don’t know how she can justify wanting to have a bunch of special firsts with E herself and 2) it’s been 8 freaking years so L should be quietly settled into her role as 2nd wife and stepmom. And that works the other way too in that by now B should have figured out to just shut her trap and deal with family issues privately if she’s truly that concerned about her kids.

  18. anniefannie says:

    Cibrian has made a huuuge miscalculation in keeping this story alive. This results in everyone rehashing all of Leanne’s misdeeds and the amount of crazy she’s unleashed. I didn’t think Brandi should have gone public w/ the 10 years and done posit but after hearing the restaurant incident I get it….

    • KB says:

      I highly doubt it was actually him tweeting that. Leann can’t let things go because she’s crazy.

  19. Linda says:

    Oh, Eddie, you disgusting piece of lying filth. Your text as real as the photo of you and LeAnn meeting for the first time when she was 14-years-old. And, Kiki, your skills are quite poor.

  20. EOA says:

    Anyone who watched Brandi on RHOBH would not be so aghast at the accusation that she majes things up for attention. Her behavior can be just as egregious as her ex and his current wife.

    • Beth says:

      I don’t think she’s making anything up. The world has seen tweets, pictures, etc. of LeAnn copying,following, and rubbing everything in Brandis face for 8 years.

    • CynicalAnn says:

      Just because Brandi is a mess also does not negate that Leann has stalked and single white female’d her for years. And just because Brandi is a loud, tacky and has alcohol issues doesn’t mean she deserves this kind of treatment.

    • Lady D says:

      Eight years. Eight years worth of proof out there. Start reading.

    • why? says:

      The major problem are the 4 times that Leann viewed Brandi’s boyfriend’s account and then showed up to Nobu wearing something very similar to what Brandi was wearing.

  21. lunchcoma says:

    All of these people are such a mess. I feel sorry for the kids.

    • Bettyrose says:

      As anyone who grew up with feuding divorced parents knows, the kids will have some issues with feeling guilty about their split loyalties, as well as with trusting romantic partners. But these things can be overcome, and they’re lucky to have loving parents (and presumably some financial resources for college).

      After Eddie & Leann split, though, she’ll probably continue trying to be part of their lives, and that will be a hard choice for them

      • Christin says:

        I knew a woman(-child) who had some similarities to this situation. When her fairytale marriage of four years (with three step-sons aged 7 to 13) ended, she pushed to be part of their lives. Her husband (their father) refused, saying the kids already had enough time split. Plus, they weren’t interested in seeing her. Boom!

        That’s how I envision this situation. Not that their spineless pop will stand up for them, but they’ll have zero interest.

  22. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    I don’t understand why Brandi doesn’t take legal action against LeAnn. Couldn’t she sue her for emotional distress or get a restraining order?

    • paleokifaru says:

      I would imagine with kids involved that gets tricky. If you have a restraining order against your kids’ stepmom then how are both families present at the kids’ events? And how then do you justify sending your kids to live with a woman who you have a restraining order against? From there you probably have to try to change custody and most judges are very pro 50/50 (not a bad thing in theory but I know in practice that’s hard when the adults don’t behave like adults). And then if she’s trying to prove L is unfit that opens her up to scrutiny of her lifestyle as well. I think it’s slippery slope. I also think this tends to be more “fun” for all of them and that they ALL get a charge out of the feud.

      • SoulSPA says:

        @paleokifaru thanks for the insights. I read your previous comment but I am just left wondering if Brandi should put up with Leanne’s mess. I get it – passing the ball from one to another but how much c**p can B take? Knowing that she’s not a saint either.

    • paleokifaru says:

      Oh I agree it’s a lot of nonsense to put up with. But I think once you let the courts into it you’re also opening up yourself to examination and she may not want that because she seems messy too. Plus, in my experience, a lot of divorced couples get into a routine the same way married couples do – whether or not it’s healthy – and it’s tough to break whatever that routine is even if it’s miserable. Somehow making a change seems to be harder for people. Maybe it’s fear of the unknown.

    “We are wanting” to take the kids?

    How does LeAnn pay the bills? HOW??

    • Christin says:

      An occasional appearance constitutes a “tour”. My guess is that she shows up for just enough dates to keep the bills and the car leases paid up. Plus sells (I assume) the pap pics of herself, wonderful hubby and his children.

    • Magnoliarose says:

      You would be surprised how some seriously washed up celebs have fans in strange countries and places. Not tons but enough to bring in a little money.

    • puravidacostarica says:

      “We are wanting” is very common among folks for whom English is their second, non-native language — i.e., Kiki.

  24. Neo says:

    I am 100% sure Leanne will read will read this comment.

  25. Peace out says:

    LeAnn is batshit crazy and EVERYONE knows it!

  26. Deanne says:

    Texts can easily be doctored and I think I’ll go with the thousand other examples of LeAnn copying Brandi as proof. Notice he didn’t address the fact LeAnn was watching Brandi’s boyfriends Snapchat all damn day. Eddie is such a liar himself and he exposed his obsession with Brandi on that failed reality show. He’s so bitter that she didn’t forgive him and he clearly eggs LeAnn on in her campaign of stalking and harassment. Hate isn’t the opposite of love, ambivalence is. Eddie is as far from ambivalent as he could possibly be when it comes to Brandi. Her happy new relationship, her work ethic and her refusal to crawl away and disappear just doesn’t suit him. He uses his children as weapons as much as LeAnn does. He’s really a repulsive human being.

  27. Magnoliarose says:

    It seems to anger LR that Brandi didn’t curl up and die. This saga is crazy. I don’t keep up with it but when I check a story I am floored that LR is still at this. I understand Brandi calling her out. LR is too insane to realize that she should have left Brandi alone. Every time she exposes her behavior it further diminishes her career. Brandi has effectively made both of them seem like pathetic losers and now this whole thing is stuck to them. I hope the stalking was worth it. Soon they will be living in a “cozy” condo in Mar Vista clipping Dominos coupons but hey she sure showed Brandi.

  28. Ruyana says:

    If LR hadn’t single-white-female-ed Brandi for so long she wouldn’t have destroyed her credibility. And Cibrian is sooooo trustworthy (cough, cough).

  29. kim says:

    This is a woman who literally shit herself at a fashion show just so she could keep up with the skinny model ex

    • Deanne says:

      No she didn’t. She ‘sat in something’ Sure she did. Something brown and liquid . My favourite was how she walked around afterward with the back of the dress all bunched up. trying to hide her accident, while Eddie posed with the models. He seriously couldn’t look like more of a lying douche in that photo, if he tried. It oozes from his every pore. There is so much proof of LeAnn’s behaviour, it’s overwhelming. Calling Brandi’ unhealthy when he’s married to that basket case is a joke.

    • Lafawnda says:

      What on earth are you two talking about?!?! I feel like I need to know. This sounds crazy!

      • Deanne says:

        Just Google, LeAnn Rimes stain on dress.This was when she was pretending she was starting her own swimwear line. She was at a bikini fashion show with Eddie and had an ‘accident’. She was photographed wandering around the event, with her dress bunched up oddly in her hand, trying to hide her shart stain, while Eddie ignored her and posed with the models.

  30. Zuzus Girl says:

    “LeAnn is is always gracious to their mother. ” Hahahahahhahahahaha. Duechbag loser is blind too.

  31. minx says:

    Ugh, Cibrian is such a loser.

    • Tate says:

      He really is and that is why it amazes me that rimes is so proud of “her man”. He is no prize.

  32. Mariposa97 says:

    Those saying Brandi needs to move on clearly haven’t followed the craziness that is leann and that is ok. It is A LOT of crazy to keep up with. I’m not saying these situations are the same in any way but the celebs that leave Scientology are told by many posters on here to stay public, that it’s a protection. I agree and in this case brandi is being stalked, obsessed about by her ex’s current wife. Why should she “keep it off twitter, grow up, move on”, and other things that have been said here?
    Eddie obvs doesn’t know that the twitter sleuths have pages dedicated to his wife and her unstable behavior. There is a twitter handle ‘copyingrimes’ and…wow. But he has to keep his atm happy so he will try and defend her no matter how stupid he looks. Some on twitter said that they arrived at nobu later than the reservation that was made so I believe the text between Leann and Kiki was doctored. Someone who said they followed Kiki on Snapchat said they followed both her accts so Kiki is lying when she said it’s not her acct and called Brandi a lunatic on twitter.
    She must be trying to keep her job to be lying for LR but it’s not worth it if she’s a nanny to be calling the mother of those boys a lunatic and will be pretty hard for her to find another job taking care of kids.

    • Emily says:

      You are right about keeping it public in her case for protection. I worry that Rimes will do something crazy or dangerous to Brandi or the boys if Eddie does leave her some day.

      • Jess says:

        I have no doubt that LeAnn will one day snap mentally, she’s going to lose her mind and I just hope Brandi and the boys are far away. She comes off as THAT freaking unhinged.

  33. SoulSPA says:

    Could Brandi do something to change the terms of the divorce regarding Eddie’s access to their boys? Does anyone know what the terms are? It seems that the situation is damaging to the kids, I mean, Brandi can talk but they can’t. At least for now. Judges take into account the best interest of the child but how can this toxic relationship between three adults affect the boys? They’ve been growing up in all this mess!

    • paleokifaru says:

      See my post upthread but I think that would be a slippery slope. I could be wrong and maybe some attorneys can weigh in.

    • Dlo says:

      I have heard more than one place that LeAnn supposedly cannot be alone with the boys

  34. Shannon says:

    I’d say they’re gaslighting the shit out of her. Since my son’s dad does it to me and his ex-wife constantly, so I completely recognize that behavior. Eddie needs to stfu; so does LeAnn.

  35. Alison F says:

    After 8 years, why haven’t Eddie and LeeAnne have children of their own so he can secure child support when he obviously will leave her after the 10 year mark? Once a cheater always a cheater and I don’t believe he has been faithful to her all of this time because I’m sure she is so insecure she has PI’s following him anywhere he goes without her. She barely has her singing career fortune left due to not selling albums, touring, etc. Her acting is horrible that no one from Lifetime or the Hallmark Channel is casting her. So they are obvious living off of her royalties and spending beyond their means as well as she has to be paying the majority of his child support since his acting gigs are not steady and they always seem to be vacationing in Hawaii!

  36. Barbcat says:

    Holy Brandi Cat-face!

    I think all three of these people are unhappy and spiteful. If you don’t want to move on, fine. But keep it to yourself just for the kids’ sake. They are the ones who are getting hurt by all three adult’s bad behavior.

  37. Sway says:

    And on top of it all, Candace Sheremet (Dean’s sister) is going off on LeAnn for two days now on Twitter. She really, REALLY hates her.

  38. why? says:

    We all know that Eddie didn’t issue that statement. It’s not the first time that Leann had Darrell pretend to be Eddie. Remember the David Gray concert where Leann talked to “her husband” while David Gray was singing? The DJ said that Eddie wasn’t even there and that Leann and Darrell were the ones talking.

    Can’t texts be faked? Why is the text coming from Kiki’s phone? Why would Eddie need to take a screenshot of Kiki’s phone when he could have just taken it from Leann’s phone?

    Why was Leann making the reservations? Shouldn’t Eddie had done that because Leann posted on IG that they were celebrating Stepmother’s Day? Leann doesn’t realize how sad and desperate Darrell’s statement makes her look. Leann claims that Eddie adores her and loves celebrating Stepmother’s Day with her, but when it came time to celebrate Stepmother’s Day a day early, Eddie couldn’t even be bothered to make a reservation.

    How does Eddie explain the fact that Leann watched 4 of Brandi’s boyfriend’s videos? Copied what Brandi was wearing. In the video, Brandi had on a white shirt, shorts, and high heels. Leann showed up in short shorts, a skimpy shirt(that she just bought because everyone was pointing out that the tag was still on the shirt), and boots.

    From 5 pm to 8 pm, Leann was on Kiki’s twitter account posting hateful things about Brandi and over explaining. When people asked why Kiki’s phone was on airplane mode, she said that it was Eddie’s phone in airplane mode because Eddie and Leann were on a plane. As you can clearly see at the the top, that wasn’t Eddie’s or Leann’s phone. It was Kiki’s. When questioned about having access to wifi, Kiki then said that Eddie was posting from his laptop. Someone showed a screen shot that said that the text on Eddie’s account came from an iphone. Kiki ended her twitter rant with “tweet dreams”. Someone pointed out that this is what Leann says all the time.

    It comes down to 2 things: Eddie is extremely jealous of Brandi’s boyfriend and her relationship with him and Leann is acting out against Brandi because she can’t cope with the fact that Eddie still has feelings for Brandi. Eddie won’t go anywhere with Leann unless Kiki or Lizzy are with him and he won’t go anywhere with Leann unless he is drunk. Leann spent yesterday posting videos of her and Eddie getting drunk. Kiki is also with them, but Leann spent hours on Kiki’s twitter account trying to convince everyone that Kiki was in LA and not with her and Eddie.

  39. Gisele says:

    Nobu takes reservations on the hour and half hour. 5:45? Why not 6:03? Plus they were late for their supposed long standing reservation. Also, who calls an office to make a restaurant reservation? So sketchy.

  40. Snowpea says:

    OMG has anyone seen a domestic situation crazier than this at any point in history? I know I haven’t. This is absolutely peak crazy and Ive seen a lot of crazy in my time… : (

    I’m a free bird kinda gal – I do my own thing, don’t follow fashion, don’t buy into whatever everyone else is doing. So I don’t really understand the psychology of a woman who copies someone as relentlessly as Rimes does Glanville. But if I WAS to do that, I imagine I’d be pretty sure to cover my tracks.

    And this is where my grisly fascination and gruesome intrigue comes into play with all of this. How DOES Rimes continue with sort of behaviour knowing full well she’s leaving an electronic trail behind her that incriminates her beyond a shadow of a doubt?

    Do we have any psychologists on board that can explain this to us all please? Because Ive been following this loony drama for 8 years now and I STILL cannot work it out. Is Rimes not absolutely mortified that everyone can see just how obsessed with Glanville she really is?

    None of this adds up to a normal person but I guess Rimes is so far from being normal that I have no hope of ever understanding.

    Goddamn it. I cannot seem to look away.

    Rimes is so sick. I can see in her eyes that she’s got a reptilian coldness that means she is all about self-preservation at best and outright destruction at worst.

    She is like the arsonist who lays an elaborate fire-starting ruse with petrol and kindling, throws in a match and walks away whistling…but sits on the sidelines and gets a sick adrenaline rush and feeling of power watching the chaos unfold.

    Brandi needs to consult lawyers ASAP because as far as I can see, Rimes is getting sicker and more evil as the years march on. I’m actually scared now for Brandi and her children : (

    • Dlo says:

      I agree, +10000000👍

    • Beth says:

      Totally agree. I can’t imagine acting like Leanne and making sure the whole world watches. She seems creepier and more bizarre every day she drags this on. Brandi should definitely get a lawyer. The children shouldn’t have to see their mom being stalked and harassed. Scary
      I’ve never been a fan of any of them, but I can’t help watching. Like when you see a car accident. You don’t want to see it, but you can’t help looking at it

    • sarah says:

      I think she was insecure early on in their ‘relationship’ because she knew that Eddie wanted to stay with Brandi. She lost a dramatic amount of weight trying to get a body type closer to Brandi’s, went to the same plastic surgeon as Brandi for her implants, etc.

      How she hasn’t gotten over it in 8 years though….that’s a tough one.

  41. Baylor says:

    Anyone who follows this mess,
    What’s the deal with them putting quotations marks around the word boyfriend when it comes to Brandi?! Are they trying to imply that she is exaggerating the relationship or that she is an escort?
    Also, how was Leann acting the fool or “ridiculous” at the birthday party? Anyone know the scoop?

    • Jezi says:

      They are trying to diminish her relationship. That is all. And I do know what happened. Don’t know if Brandi wants me to give out details but I’ll just say this, she was acting very childish and almost like throwing a temper tantrum but being more “I’m going to ignore you because I didn’t get my way” kind of behavior.

      • Mariposa97 says:

        Yes they are trying to say that she is his ‘beard’. LR fans are really something. And it was Kiki who started this by putting quotations on boyfriend. This is someone who watches brandi’s boys. I feel for Brandi having to turn her kids over to these people half the time and who knows what garbage they try to put in their heads.
        It’s truly disturbing how fast Leann put her bs blog up just to beat Brandi to the punch.
        I wish you well on your new blog and hope it’s successful.

  42. jana says:

    They obviously share the same plastic surgeon, because those are two of the worst boob jobs on the planet!

    • sarah says:

      I think Brandi’s boob job is a good one, but Leann’s have always had issues….

      Sane surgeon though – Leann sought out Brandi’s surgeon for her implants.

  43. Lime says:

    Celebitchy needs to do a super post on this LovE story, so we can remember the past decade or whatever it’s been in full glory.

  44. Baylor says:

    It must make LeAnn and company so mad that Brandi has a man who has more money than them. Lawsuits suddenly not so easy and intimidating.

  45. Mollie says:

    Those poor children.:(

  46. Stephanie says:

    I checked out these people on Twitter, apparently LeAnn’s mother has a Twitter account? LeAnn’s Biomom. She goes HAM on Leann. Yikes. They are all blowing up over these reservations. This is a war Eddie and Leann cannot win. The court of public opinion, and the facts, are NOT on their side. They should stfu and stop engaging.

  47. CynicalAnn says:

    Could he looks more ridiculous in that picture?

    • Jane says:

      Oh yes. Have you seen the picture of him totally wasted sitting in a lawn chair in front of his trailer with Leann? That’s a sight I won’t get out of my head for a long time.

  48. Lucy2 says:

    For all the garbage they have shoveled back-and-forth at each other over the years, he’s choosing to take a stand on a… Restaurant reservation?
    Doesn’t he have anything better to do, like a job? Oh wait.

    • Penelope says:

      Pretty sure his response was actually LeAnn, and she’s dragging him into it to “speak” because she got badly caught in her creepy stalking ways and she’s desperate to do damage control. What she did is a total embarrassment and a clear sign of mental illness.

  49. Rob says:

    Eddie speaks? Wow.

  50. Deanne says:

    Not only do I think that Eddie tries to gaslight Brandi, I think that when he says ‘move on’, he means alone and also that his version of moving on, includes her letting him and his stalker wife do whatever the hell they want, when it comes to the kids. Like she’s supposed to move on from being their Mother. Neither want Brandi to be happy, in love and in a stable relationship with a handsome, wealthy man, who clearly thinks she’s amazing. LeAnn played for a half an hour, for about 100 people at some wine festival and Eddie stood by the stage looking angry and like he’d slept in his clothes. Not exactly like he’s living the dream anymore, but now that he’s out of work, he has no excuse to not follow stalker on her epic ‘tour’ of parking lots and petting zoos.

  51. Jrock says:

    So, couple things:

    I work for Apple, and know a lot of tips and tricks. I pay attention when screenshots are presented because I can usually figure out if people are being lied to, if a screenshot has been faked, etc. You can absolutely put your phone on Airplane Mode and change the date and time manually in settings, then text. This works. Give it a shot if you have any Apple products. This explains why Airplane Mode is on in the screenshot. They were probably worried that if they allowed the phone to connect, the time and date would roll back to the appropriate time. Kiki tried to say she was at home, but that screenshot didn’t vibe with her story at all.


    There’s literally no reason for anyone to wait to make a reservation “when the office opens” at Nobu. I’ve seen the thing about them not taking reservations on anything other than the half hour, but I did find that they use OpenTable built in to their website to make a reservation, and they indeed to take reservations on the quarter hour. HOWEVER, you can make reservations online anytime. I could make a reservation right now for 6:45 , 7:00, 7:15, etc, on Sunday the 25th. If she was planning that far in advance, she could’ve Googled the website and made the reservation for herself. Ok, so she asked her assistant to do it. Fine. Why would Kiki put it off? Let’s say she wanted to tell them the table is for LeAnn in case there were paps. Nobu is open on Mondays, and someone would have been there to answer the phone while they’re open. Especially at 6pm on a Monday.

    So let’s say there were no reservations available online (HIGHLY unlikely), and Kiki knows someone that works there and wanted to speak with them directly about LeAnn. HIGHLY unlikely, but sure. Then why would we take an employee from Nobu’s word on whether or not the reservation existed? If they already have such a relationship with Kiki or LeAnn, their job is to protect the business, and if they come enough that they have a relationship, then their job is to protect that business and not look bad in the press. This is really a no-win situation for Nobu, because if they do say yes, no one will believe them because they need to protect the relationship they have with either LeAnn or Kiki. If they say no comment because they must protect the privacy of their clientele, then they lose the relationship with LeAnn or Kiki. If they say no, they didn’t have a reservation, they’re still exposing their clientele and that could turn off other high-profile folks from visiting. So that portion of the story, the “Nobu has record” story, on their part was really stupid and really smart at the same time.

    There’s no way you can provide this as proof of anything other than it not being a very well thought-out lie.


    1. Airplane Mode = faked time/date

    2. 0 reason to “wait for the office to open” at Nobu-online reservations are a few touches, and they were open at the time of the text.

    3. If it’s true that Kiki or LeAnn know someone at Nobu that will make a reservation happen without having availability online, we can’t trust that person to tell the truth when they’re biased.

    • Christin says:

      I agree that the restaurant is in a no-win situation. But now caring father has issued another explanation that is even more ridiculous and insulting to his children’s mother.

      One thing that seems forgotten is, there were paps who took photos of “bonus” and the boys walking through the restaurant parking lot, supposedly on this exact outing. Do paps truly just hang out there? If so, why no photos of Brandi and her beau?

  52. Loca says:

    Its about the kids now. Not Brandi’s drama, Leann’s drama, or Eddie’s drama. The kids have to live with this mess. If they split up then oh well life will still move on and Eddie is not going back to Brandi either way. They each are ruining their kids childhood. The oldest boy looks sad and withdrawn at times. At the end all said and done no one is winning with all this fighting. They each need to live their own lives and not speak to each other if its that bad. Have a third party do it.

  53. Guesting says:

    No matter how problematic Brandi is, she has a right not to be stalked and maintain healthy boundaries. Leann fully stalks while staying mostly on the right side of the law. Not much can be proven about how she uses third parties unless one of them decides to show receipts.
    I believe LR had in the beginning, used E’s Instagram for a while pretending to be him. A forum pointed out the red flags about that.
    Brandi does indeed need to stay public, not only for her safety but also for the safety of her kids. Stalkers aren’t mentally healthy people. This isn’t JUST a case of catty grudge holding women to be dismissed because they are ‘females’ (using that term because it tends to automatically trigger less respect). This is a case of someone stalking for several years, exhibiting perverse behaviors (calling ex-fans anyone?) and having control of their victims children.
    I don’t care if Brandi is a skanky, obnoxious, superficial, immature brat. No one deserves to be stalked AND THEN TOLD THEY SHIULD SHUT UO ABOUT IT.

  54. Deanne says:

    Eddie has given another explanation even more idiotic than the first. He claimed that they checked Brandi’s SM because when they arrived at the restaurant, she was already ‘drunk” and they wanted to make sure she didn’t post any inappropriate photos of the boys. Really Edna? LeAnn stalked DJ’s Snapchat for hours before you ever showed up at Nobu. You still aren’t answering the question about why LeAnn and Kiki the hobbit were doing that all damn day, why the paps were called and why the world’s most beloved Step-psycho was ‘wanting to take the boys’ to a restaurant instead of you and her hijacked children making the plans . Is English LeAnn’s second language? I know she quit school in like, Grade 5 or whatever, but still. kinda suspect. Also, Brandi tweeted as this happened and it wasn’t a drunk tweet. Considering that in almost every freaking photo of him, he’s drinking, he needs to shut his has been trap. BTW. LeAnn looked like she was manic as hell in those paper photos at Nobu. She knew exactly what she was doing. Eddie would rather hurt Brandi than protect his children. Brandi may comment, but I’m sure that what they’ve put her through in private is nothing compared to what the public has seen. From personal experience, he and the ATM who controls his every move are in for it when the kids are older.

    • Sway says:

      Eddie has the gall to claim they looked at DJ’s Snapcaht AFTER their cute “get together” at Nobu. They are taking advantage of the fact that on Brandi’s screenshots there is no date or time and have the audacity to claim they were checking his profile because of concern for the boys. These people are disgusting. This is these kids’ mother. Their MOTHER. She’s never done anything to harm them which is more than what I can say about the “bonus” stalker LeeAnn. I really hope karma gets these people, because this is beyond appaling.

      And LeeAnn is certifiable.
