LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s reality show (cleverly titled LeAnn & Eddie) premiered yesterday, July 17, which means the controversial couple have a new platform to dis his ex-wife Brandi Glanville — and they wasted no time insulting the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star!
The couple, who infamously left their respective spouses after meeting on the set of their Lifetime Original Movie, addressed their tumultuous beginnings, the ever-present rumors and their subsequent reputations as “a moocher” and “a home-wrecker.”
The conversation turned when LeAnn asked Eddie if he was ready to answer questions about their relationship on the red carpet—and he said he “did not want to give anyone the pleasure” of speaking about it publicly.
Naturally, their talk transitioned into a discussion about the mother of Eddie’s two children, Mason and Jake.
“It doesn’t help that we have a third party in this situation that is just a mouthpiece,” LeAnn said of her husband’s ex-wife.
“It doesn’t matter if we say anything because she will be the one laughing about it. I think people will be smart enough to realize what she is doing and why she is doing it.”
Although LeAnn’s harsh words made her feelings about Brandi pretty clear, Eddie addressed his thoughts on his ex-wife more head-on after the soap opera actor was confronted with a magazine cover claiming he was leaving LeAnn — and leaning on his ex-wife for support.
“The likelihood of Brandi and I getting back together would be slightly above a sighting of Bigfoot and slightly below an actual zombie apocalypse,” he said.
