For some reason, Brandi Glanville has written a “candid essay” for The Sun this week, and it’s about how Eddie Cibrian cheated on her with LeAnn Rimes. Back in 2008. Yep, as always, the ex-Real Housewife is keeping things timely, relevant, and up-to-date. Brandi writes that Eddie initially denied his affair with LeAnn and that fucked with her mind and caused long-term trust issues. She says she was so hell-bent on revenge she went up to LeAnn at her son’s soccer game and threatened to murder her. Whoopsies!
Brandi writes that she thought she had “the best husband,” and while she had her suspicions about Eddie’s fidelity, he’d tell her she was just being jealous. But when Brandi visited Eddie on the set of the movie Northern Lights, she could tell he and co-star LeAnn were attracted to each other (they were Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott 2.0). Soon after she saw pics of Eddie and LeAnn at a restaurant in Us Weekly (apparently Eddie knew about this but didn’t give his wife a head’s up). Then video footage leaked of Eddie and LeAnn making out and sucking on each other’s fingers.
Brandi asked Eddie if he loved LeAnn, and he insisted he didn’t and asked to go to marriage counselling. They did, but weeks later it came out that Eddie had also cheated on her with Vanderpump Rules star (yes, STAR) Scheana Shay. Then Eddie and LeAnn were papped together on a motorcycle; he’d never stopped seeing her. Brandi said she felt broken and was full of murderous rage (via The Sun):
I did not want my kids around her. She’d got my husband and she was NOT getting my children.
One time, before they were married, I walked up to a soccer game and Jake, who was two, was sitting in her lap. I had this rage in my body. I really wanted to kill her. I walked over to her, grabbed Jake and I looked at her and said: “I will f***ing murder you.”
Brandi threatening LeAnn’s life is especially surprising (LOL, it isn’t surprising at all, but I have to say that for this next part of the sentence to work) cuz her latest Instagram post is a clip from her podcast in which she slags off Chrissy Teigen for wishing death upon Courtney Stodden. Brandi says, “I never wished death on people and I won’t ever do that”:
Lies! Lies! Lies! Back to this essay, which is the moment: Brandi says she was drinking tons of Chardonnay and coping really badly with her marriage falling apart. But her need for revenge on LeAnn was eating away at her. And eventually she decided to choose forgiveness:
These days, I love LeAnn, who married Eddie in 2011. She’s great and we all hang out together. I’ve forgiven her. We’re going to be around each other for ever because of the kids, so why not make the best of it?
Eddie and I still squabble, but it’s like the three of us are doing the parenting — it’s nice to have a third person and she’s usually on my side.
But I will always have trust issues because of what happened.
Brandi also brings up her alleged affair with Denise Richards, because she’s contractually obligated to mention it any time she opens her mouth. Blah blah blah, she didn’t like being the cheater in Denise’s marriage (Denise allegedly told Brandi that her and husband Aaron Phypers were open), she’s gotten over it, yada yada yada.
A couple weeks ago, Brandi was making the rounds and telling everybody she loved LeAnn. Both ladies posted this photo from their co-Mother’s Day:
Hey, if Brandi can get over the cheating, LeAnn can get over the death threat. Healthy co-parenting choices all around!
