posted in: Entertainment News | 0

Ten years of drama! Brandi Glanville feuded with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his current wife, LeAnn Rimes, for nearly a decade after his headline-making cheating scandal. See a timeline below!

March 2009

Us Weekly broke the news that Rimes was having an affair with Cibrian after meeting on the set of the Lifetime movie Northern Lights. The “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” singer was married to former backup dancer Dean Sheremet at the time, while the Sunset Beach alum was wed to Glanville. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star later told Us, “LeAnn is a stalker. She refuses to leave us alone — it is shameful and scary. People are going to say it takes two to tango and I get that, but at some point LeAnn needs to stop asking him to dance.”

Glanville told Us exclusively that she left Cibrian after his dalliances with Rimes and model Scheana Marie, the latter of whom went on to become a cast member on Vanderpump Rules. “Eddie and I have decided to take some time apart,” Glanville said. “I want to do what is best for our children [Mason and Jake]. Eddie and LeAnn deserve each other.” The divorce was finalized in October 2010.

A source told Us that the “How Do I Live” songstress had been separated from Sheremet, her husband of seven years, for “a while.” The insider added, “They are still not divorcing yet, but are working through things and taking time apart — as they have been — while they figure things out.” They started the divorce process months later and finalized it in June 2010.

Rimes said she had no regrets about her affair with Cibrian. “It happens every day to so many people,” she said in an interview with ABC News’ Robin Roberts. “And if I take away my album sales, my words … you have just another couple. You had two couples whose marriages didn’t work who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love.”

After weeks of speculation, Cibrian made it official and proposed to Rimes over the holidays. A source close to Glanville told Us that the Drinking and Tweeting author “couldn’t care less” about the engagement because “LeAnn has gotten exactly what she wanted from the get-go.”

The actor and the country singer tied the knot at a private estate in Malibu. She gushed about the wedding on Twitter soon after: “Eddie and I are overwhelmed by the amount of lovely well wishes. We are blessed and…. I’m Mrs. Cibrian!!! So wonderful to wake up as husband and wife. Love to all of you.”

Rimes admitted herself into a 30-day inpatient treatment facility for anxiety. “LeAnn has had major insecurity issues since she first got together with Eddie,” a friend of the couple told Us. “She’s been stressed about always being called a home-wrecker and also worried that Eddie is cheating on her. She’s been on a downward spiral.” Glanville extended an olive branch at the time, telling Us, “I totally support LeAnn’s decision to enter rehab — my top priority is my children, and at the end of the day we are a family. LeAnn is their stepmom, and they love her. I am wishing her all the best and I hope she will find what she is looking for while in rehab.”

The Bravo personality changed her tune about Rimes as a stepmother. She told Us exclusively, “I know that my kids love her, and I know that she’s upset. I, unfortunately, don’t find her to be stable and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there.”

Scheana told Us that she “ended things” with Cibrian after he was caught with Rimes. “I’m sick of everyone saying I’m a home-wrecker – no! He wrecked his own home,” she said. “He broke his vows, he f–ked up, not me!”

It didn’t take long for Rimes and Cibrian to bring up Glanville on their short-lived reality show, LeAnn & Eddie. “Look, everyone thinks they really know how it is with us, but there are two sides to every story and this is ours,” the Invasion star said during the introduction before the musician said they’re just “trying to figure out how to navigate this family … that’s highly publicized.”


June 2017

The feud seemed to settle down for a bit — until the Celebrity Big Brother star predicted that her ex-husband will divorce Rimes in a few years. “I think when the 10-year mark [of their marriage] comes and he leaves her and takes half her stuff, we’ll all be good together because they won’t even be related,” Glanville said on Daily Pop. “If she doesn’t have a kid with him, then we don’t ever have to see her again.”

June 2017

A series of back-and-forth stalking allegations ensued after Glanville’s explosive interview. She claimed Cibrian and Rimes showed up with her children while she was enjoying dinner with her then-boyfriend, Donald “DJ” Friese, in Malibu. The actor called his ex’s claims “false” in a statement to Us and defended his current wife as “a fantastic stepmom.” Later that month, Glanville told Us, “They sat across the room from us just to hurt and torment me by using my own children as pawns.”

The feud finally came to an end — at least for now. “The three of us sat and talked for hours hashed everything out and the feud with @leannrimes Eddie and I is over” Glanville tweeted. “They will not be getting rid of me on any holidays #modernfamily.”

April 2019

Better than ever? While Rimes referred to her Easter with Glanville, Cibrian, Mason and Jake as “awkward” in April 2019, the singer later clarified that she was simply referring to their poses in the family photo, not the situation. “Happy Easter LovEs! Our awkward family Easter ? photo/Christmas card?! Lol,” she wrote on Instagram. “Today has been a wonderful day. Many blessings to your family from all of us! #easter #happyeaster #easter2019 #family #ifyoudonthavesomethingnicetosaypleasemoveon *awkward – the way we are standing, not that we are all together. Not awkward at all. #clarity.”
