Back in April, Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes seemingly buried the hatchet. They posed for a selfie – posted on Brandi’s IG – and Brandi later said that they had gotten together and hashed everything out at long last. No one really believes the peace will hold. I mean, Brandi and LeAnn have “made peace” before and it’s never stuck. It always ends in drama, usually when LeAnn crosses some line with one or both of Brandi’s sons, Mason and Jake. So, let’s see… LeAnn posted the above Instagram for Stepmother’s Day, which was a few days ago. Brandi has asked LeAnn repeatedly to stop posting photos of Mason and Jake on her social media, but LeAnn never stops. Anyway, LeAnn attended the American Idol finale (why?) and she ended up chatting with E! News about how she makes a blended family work:
Despite some rough waters, LeAnn Rimes says it’s smooth sailing with her stepsons’ mother Brandi Glanville the ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian. Last night at the American Idol Finale in Los Angeles, the country singer talked to E! News about how their modern family makes it work.
“The key to doing it right? A lot of grace. A lot of not taking things personally,” said the 35-year-old star, who is a stepmother to Jake Austin Cibrian, 11, and Mason Edward Cibrian, 14.
“The kids are the most important thing and they know the love is there and like any blended family everybody sees, even though you don’t think the kids see, everybody sees the ups and down,” said the “Blue” singer, who has been married to Eddie since 2011. “They know everyone loves them, they know everyone is committed and we’re always there for them.” She then joked, “As long as us adults can act like adults which seems to be an issue sometimes.”
Despite some serious past turmoil with the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, LeAnn said, “I know I can speak for myself and I can speak for Eddie, but little things don’t bother us any more.”
Honestly? It’s been almost a decade since LeAnn and Eddie got together. By that I mean, Eddie was married to Brandi and he was cheating on Brandi all over the place, and LeAnn ruined her own marriage to Dean Sheremet by stalking Eddie until Brandi finally got fed up and dumped him. It’s been about nine years since all of that went down. You would think that they could have buried the hatchet a long time ago, but no. Now, suddenly, nine years later, LeAnn is acting like she didn’t spend the better part of a decade Single-White-Female-ing Brandi and starting dumb sh-t with her. Sure, whatever. It will be fun when this sh-t blows up again.
