Brandi Glanville Admits LeAnn Rimes Drove Her To Drink Over The Holidays

Brandi Glanville has always been good for drama. As one of the housewives from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she made headlines for her antics. She was once married to Eddie Cibrian, but he cheated on her. Glanville went through a really tough time when her husband left her for LeAnn Rimes and then married her. There are children involved, and that makes things more complicated. Since then, Glanville just hasn’t been the same. The divorce and mistrust did a number on her insecurities, and now Brandi Glanville has her guard up.

Because Brandi Glanville had two little boys with Eddie Cibrian, she has to split her time with them with him. While that is typical, it doesn’t make it any easier. LeAnn Rimes and Cibrian do not have children together so Rimes is very intent on making these boys her sons, blood or not. Glanville is not impressed with the amount of photos being posted to social media which appear to show them all looking like a happy family. According to Us Weekly, Brandi Glanville says that LeAnn Rimes drove her to drink. The pictures Rimes posted during the holidays were extremely hurtful to Glanville who was spending Christmas without her children. Seeing her boys having fun with their father and his wife really broke her heart. Glanville is not good when alcohol is available, and this situation was probably made worse by the drinking. She proved alcohol was an issue while filming for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last season.


The custody arrangement between Brandi Glanville and Eddie Cibrian is complicated. There are rules when it comes to the kids and most of them were put into place because Glanville was filming for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The boys were not allowed to be filmed, so the unfiltered version of Brandi Glanville was unleashed. Several comments have been made throughout the seasons about both Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes. Glanville was so hurt by what her husband did and where they ended up. She hasn’t had a truly serious relationship since her marriage broke apart, and Cibrian married his mistress. While those are personal issues, Glanville really has a hard time watching them flourish in public. She isn’t jealous, she is just wants her own happiness too.

The unedited version of Brandi Glanville gets a lot of attention, but she is a different person when her children are around. She is the one person they depend on for everything in their daily life, and she enjoys that. Glanville also likes to have fun and be inappropriate when she is out with her friends. According to Starpulse, Brandi Glanville likes to be inappropriate because it is fun. She will get judged, but everything is more fun when living on the edge. Glanville pushed several boundaries while on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Even though Brandi Glanville has mourned her marriage and gotten over Eddie Cibrian, the constant reminders of what happened still haunt her. LeAnn Rimes has definitely rubbed the situation in Glanville’s face, which has caused a lot of tension. She finally asked Rimes not to post pictures on the sensitive days, which likely means the holidays when her boys are gone. While it is true that the boys now have a blended family when they visit Eddie Cibrian, it isn’t one that has to be shoved down their mother’s throat.


With the holidays over, Brandi Glanville can get back to normal life. There will always be difficult times, but she is doing the best she can with the hand she was dealt. As much as critics get onto who she is and what she says, at the end of the day she is just a mom who misses her children when they are away. Brandi Glanville has feelings too, and LeAnn Rimes tramples them over and over again.
