Brandi Glanville on custody and LeAnn Rimes: you win, now go make music
Brandi Glanville has acknowledged that it's been difficult losing her husband Eddie Cibrian, and at times her children, to LeAnn Rimes.
"With the situation with [Eddie] and I, it was more like, 'Haha, I won.' And now it's like, 'I won, I have the kids, I have the husband.' But its [like], 'OK, you win, now go make music,'" Glanville told Access Hollywood Live on November 5. "I feel like there's still this, 'I got your family.'"
Glanville and Rimes have had bad blood since Rimes and Cibrian went public with their romance back in 2009. The couple fell in love on the set of their Lifetime film "Northern Lights." At the time Cibrian was still married to Glanville while Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet. Rimes and Sheremet divorced in June 2010 and she married Cibrian in April 2011
"[My sons] like her, it would be hard for me if they didn't like her, I would be in court trying to get them back all the time," Glanville said of the arrangement."Any divorce is hard, any time you have kids is difficult ... I wish the best for them ... I want them to be happy and I want her to make music and do the whole thing and just be respectful."
Though Glanville and Cibrian share custody of their two sons - Mason, 9, and Jake, 5, the 39-year-old "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star does not always get to see her kids on the holidays. This is particularly hard for the former model when Rimes is posting photos of them on Twitter.
"I have issues from time to time, I didn't have them for Halloween - they were with their dad and she's Tweeting photos and people are calling, saying, 'Oh, I saw your babies online.' And it breaks my heart because I can't be there with them. I haven't seen their costumes, so I was pissed, like any mom would be. Send me the pictures! They're my babies. That was a little bit of a situation."
Glanville also addressed Rimes' recent stint in rehab, to deal with anxiety and stress, which was reportedly partly because of an issue she was having with two Twitter followers who she is now suing for invasion of privacy. The two women illegally tape-recorded a phone conversation with Rimes, who called the women at home to argue about Glanville.
"Now she's suing some Twitter fans of mine. I don't know these people, but it angers me because it's like, you're reaching out to strangers and calling them and now you're suing them? There's a lot right now that's difficult."
Glanville rung in the 2012 New Year marrying her friend, martial arts manager Darin Harvey. The pair told fans on Twitter that there was no pre-nuptial agreement and they planned to annul the marriage.
She also made headlines earlier in the year after saying on Bravo's talk show "Watch What Happens Live" that Gerard Butler was the most famous person she had hooked up with and rating him an "11" out of 10 for his bedroom skills.
When asked about the fling, Butler asked TMZ, "Who's Brandi Glanville?" She defended herself, telling TMZ that he called and told her he made the comment to maintain his privacy.
Glanville will appear on the season three premiere of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," which airs on November 5 at 9 p.m. Central on Bravo. Watch a clip from Glanville's interview with Access Hollywood Live below.
