Did I miss this story? Did CB already cover this? I don’t think we did. Last week, Brandi Glanville appeared on The Wendy Williams Show. Wendy asked Brandi what LeAnn Rimes is like as a stepmother to Brandi and Eddie Cibrian’s two sons, and Brandi hedged and then replied, “Overbearing.” LeAnn had a Twitter hissy fit, of course, and tweeted: “I am his WIFE & their ‘bonus mom’ and it’s out of line after 3 years to continually discuss. Negativity does not help kids. Go promote your show if that’s what you’re really there to do.” And then LeAnn followed up with, “I however will not be lied about. Obviously we are not in a good place like has been claimed and it’s not good for the kids. I’d like to see some resolve, but that doesn’t look like its happening anytime soon. #hopeforthebest.”
Brandi then tweeted back (because this is high school, apparently): “Let’s b clear just as u get asked about me, I get asked about u. It is my story & life also. I will answer honestly, don’t b a hater.” So, that was what happened in public, on their respective social media. Now what happened behind the scenes? In Touch Weekly has the story:
LeAnn Rimes was already livid that her husband Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, called her an “overbearing” step-mother on The Wendy Williams Show. But then LeAnn directed her anger at Eddie.
While on the phone with him in NYC on October 24, LeAnn flew into a terrifying rage after a misguided Eddie – trying to play peacemaker – suggested that she call Brandi.
Although LeAnn’s rep denies the story, the insider says LeAnn cursed at Eddie for proposing she talk to “that whore Brandi” on the phone.
“She was screaming and crying,” an insider tells In Touch. “She just flipped out.”

“That whore Brandi” - whatcha talkin’ ‘bout, homewrecker? Seriously, though, I believe this. If anything, I think In Touch Weekly is probably underselling what really went down. I see LeAnn in complete hysterics, collapsing under the weight of her own “overbearing” martyrdom, screaming “BONUS MOM!!! SCREEEEEEEE!!!!”
