Is LeAnn Rimes Obsessed With Brandi Glanville, Her Husband’s Ex?
The first thing that comes to mind when viewing LeAnn Rimes‘ rail-thin body nowadays is…Brandi Glanville.
Glanville is Rimes’s current husband Eddie Cibrian‘s first wife and mother of his two sons, Mason and Jake. The statuesque blond, who at 38 is 10 years Rimes’s senior, is currently starring on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and is a former model. Rimes, who rose to instant fame as a teenager with her debut country album Blue, has seen her dramatic weight loss since marrying Cibrian become the source of constant media chatter. Her husband recently spoke with Access Hollywood about it, denying allegations of an eating disorder. “She eats healthy, but she works out pretty hard, too, and she actually takes pride in the way she looks. It’s a shame that people will jump on the bandwagon just because she is fit—and she’s far from unhealthy.” Whether it’s a case of a chubby-faced teen star becoming a svelte grown woman or an attempt to look “good” for her new husband, let’s hopes Rimes is as healthy as he says she is.
The bitter tension and public feuding between the two ladies has been recounted endlessly by gossip magazines worldwide. The pair have clashed several times since 2009 when Cibrian, 37, publicly left Glanville for Rimes, his co-star in the Lifetime television movie Northern Lights.
As for her take on the divorce, Glanville very recently spoke on it and still isn’t mincing her words. “I have been through an extremely hard couple of years that I wouldn’t wish on any woman! My family was broken apart and I was devastated while trying to raise my two little boys as my world crumbled around me.”
LeAnn Rimes’ tenth album, Lady and Gentlemen, is out now.
