“Flying out with my boys in a few hrs,” LeAnn tweeted on Friday, November 30. “Love that it's a family tour weekend. It's always more fun when they are with me.” Brandi made an obvious reference to LeAnn’s note by subsequently tweeting, “Someone is trying 2 get under my skin by calling MY children ‘her boys’Sooo transparent!They R MY boys, Eddie Boys and ur step-sons... 4 now.” Brandi also retweeted a fan's note, "Why is it ok for @leannrimes to whore out @BrandiGlanville 's kids on twitter, but they can't appear on #RHOBH ?? #hmm #hypocrite."
Yikes. After Brandi's comment, LeAnn retweeted positive messages and quotes like this one from a Marilyn Monroe account: "Don’t worry about people that don’t like you....Enjoy the ones who do.” She also shared this note from a fan: "The man that raised/loved/taught grew me didn't birth me. He's my dad, and Im his kid..kids r 2 b loved not owned. bravo to u."
The mother/stepmother relationship can be tense for anyone, but especially for people operating in the spotlight like these two. But LeAnn probably didn’t mean to push anyone’s buttons by referring to Eddie and his sons as "my boys," right? A good stepmother/stepfather should try to bond with their spouse's kids, while remaining respectful that they are not replacing the biological parent. It's a tightrope.
Do you think LeAnn was disrespectful and crossed the line or was Brandi oversensitive?
