Brandi tells Bethenny Frankel on the September 27 episode of Bethenny that it hurts when LeAnn shares photos with the public of her bonding with Brandi's kids.
"It's the worst pain," Brandi admits. "You think your heart's broken after you get a divorce — wait until there's a girl, and she's tweeting pictures of, 'Oh, look at my family.' You have no idea."
Brandi and Bethenny agree that the pain of this never quite goes away completely. "It won't ever end, and I feel like she almost does it to antagonize me, you know?" Brandi says. "But at this point, I've accepted it — it took me a while."
It turns out that Brandi had a little pharmaceutical assistance for her coping. "Xanax was my friend back when that first started happening," she says. "I was like, 'You can have the man, but those are my babies.'"
We feel for Brandi, and we always hope that she and LeAnn can put their differences aside for the best interests of the boys. Sometimes, we see glimpses of this happening, as when Brandi recently wished LeAnn a happy birthday on Twitter.
We're wishing you and your sons all the best, Brandi!
