In a slice of pure Hollywood, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville has revealed that she attended blended family therapy with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and singer LeAnn Rimes, with whom Eddie cheated on Brandi.
It was around a year after Eddie’s shocking affair with LeAnn Rimes ended his marriage to Brandi that the future “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star decided the three of them needed put aside their differences and learn to get along for the sake of the former couple’s two young sons. So Brandi suggested to her ex Eddie that they participate in something called ‘blended family therapy.’
In her bombshell new tell-all book, “Drinking & Tweeting and other Brandi Blunders, Glanville, who has recently escalated her verbal attacks on LeAnn Rimes writes about how for months things were bad between the three of them, “jumping down each other’s throats and triangulating the children.”
She talks about how it affected the children in their nightly phone calls with their father as they felt pulled in two directions. So Brandi finally suggested therapy, she says.
Eddie discussed it with LeAnn, something which also angered Brandi. She writes,
“‘Ugh,’ I thought. Of course it had to be on their terms. I couldn’t care less which doctor we went to, but I had to make a little fuss about it before I eventually conceded.”
So does she mean she complicated the negotiations for the sake f it, because she didn’t want everything going the way Eddie and LeAnn wanted? What’s your take on that?
Also, Brandi agreed to sign a non-disclosure agreement, although that made her angry too.
“It took all my strength not to respond, ‘Right, because you both are soooo f—ing famous that every newspaper in the world would be clawing for the story of what Eddie and LeAnn revealed during co-parenting therapy.’ Are you f**king kidding me? It was laughable,” she says in her book – although actually, without the NDA, a pretty heavy fee may well have changed hands for that info.
Brandi Glanville deliberately dressed down for the therapy, arriving fresh from Pilates in workout gear, so she says she was shocked when Eddie and LeAnn arrived, late, looking pretty glamorous.
Because of the NDA, Brandi can’t disclose what was discussed in the sessions, but she has said that she found them “an incredibly gratifying and vindicating experience.”
