Of all the weird solutions to dealing with your ex, going to three-way therapy with his new wife sounds like one of the most awkward!  But that didn’t Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Brandi Glanville from trying it out.

After Brandi’s ex-husband Eddie Cibrian had remarried LeAnn Rimes, things were (unsurprisingly) not going well between the three of them, the reality star wrote in her upcoming book Drinking & Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders.

“For months, the three of us were jumping down each other’s throats and triangulating the children,” Brandi wrote. “So, therapy seemed the only reasonable – albeit ridiculous – solution to the problem.”

She pitched the therapy idea to Eddie, who in turn ran it by LeAnn. They agreed, but only on their terms: they choose the doctor, and Brandi sign a confidentiality agreement.

“It took all my strength not to respond, ‘Right, because you both are soooo f**king famous that every newspaper in the world would be clawing for the story of what Eddie and LeAnn revealed during co-parenting therapy.’” Brandi wrote. “Are you f**king kidding me? It was laughable.”

But in the end Brandi agreed, in the interest of being a better parent. That being the case, she can’t share the gory details of their group therapy, but she can share what she wore (workout clothes), what LeAnn wore (heels and false eyelashes), and how she felt about the whole situation:

“Watching my ex-husband standing in front of me, comforting another woman and holding her hand, was probably one of the most surreal moments of my life,” Brandi revealed. “It was a strange sensation, because while it was extremely odd, I didn’t feel jealous. I was finally numb to their entire existence. I simply didn’t care.”

So, did it work? We can’t speak for LeAnn, but it sounds like Brandi was happy with the results. “I can share that it was an incredibly gratifying and vindicating experience…for me.”
