Brandi Glanville has gotten a lot of flack for the secrets she shared in her tell-all book, Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has admitted to some uncertainty herself about sharing the sordid details of her split from ex-husband Eddie Cibrian with the world. So, why did she do it?
One motivation, naturally, was retaliation. But not just for the affair that Eddie had with his current wife, LeAnn Rimes. It’s also for the couple’s behavior ever since.
For the past four years, Brandi explained to Buzzfeed, she’d put up with interview after teary interview from the couple, and she’s seriously over it.
“The crying, the ‘we love each other,’ the 20/20, the Katie Couric, the whatever her name is…Giuliana Rancic,” Brandi recalled. “This book is my side of the story.”
But now that her side of the story has been told, Brandi Glanville insists that she’s done.
“I really want to put this public war with LeAnn and Eddie behind me, and I want to communicate with them privately,” she said.
A big motivation for Brandi to bury the hatchet is, of course, her kids. She and Eddie have two sons, Mason, 9 and Jake, 5, and for their sake, Brandi hopes this troubled threesome will be able to put everything behind them and move on.
But if you think she was going to walk out of an interview without at least one teeny tiny dig at LeAnn, you’re sorely mistaken.
Brandi has often been pissed at LeAnn for tweeting about her boys, which explains these good wishes for the couple.
“Hopefully,” Brandi said, “They'll have a child of their own and she'll understand better what a proper boundary is for a stepmother and a mother.”
That’s our Brandi! What a sweetheart.
