Glanville and Cibrian argue over kids' camera time
'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star finds ex-husband's stance hypocritical
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast member Brandi Glanville has revealed her co-parenting troubles with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, citing his hypocrisy in wanting their kids to have a normal life. The formal model has been in a bitter battle with her ex since she discovered his infidelity with singer LeAnn Rimes in 2009. Now that they have divorced and Cibrian has gone on to marry Rimes, the two are trying to find a healthy balance in raising their sons.
In a candid interview with Us Weekly, Glanville explains why their kids have yet to show up on "Housewives," saying, "Eddie and I can't agree right now that they can be in the background on the show. They're really cute, though!" But with Cibrian refusing to let the kids on the reality series, she finds it confusing that he would let them see the actor romancing other women on screen and travel across the country with Rimes on tour for the sake of normalcy. Glanville admits, "It's hard because Eddie's like, 'I want them to have a normal life.' I'm like, 'A normal life with a singer? They go on a tour bus halfway across the country and go backstage at these concerts. Then they have a dad as an actor -- seeing him kissing different girls on TV is going to be hard. And then they have me. God knows what I am, but I'm me! It's not going to be normal."
Despite her quarrels with both Cibrian and Rimes over how to raise their kids, one thing Glanville admits they do agree on is that they just want the best for their sons. She adds, "I would do anything for them, and so would Eddie. I know no matter what the situation is, we're going to keep them grounded, sweet, safe and not entitled."
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
"A normal life with a singer"? WTH is that supposed to mean? They aren't indefinitely living on the bus - it's a few shows at a time. My dad was a musician and we went on tour with him in the summer - it was like a vacation. Sorry Ms. Glanville, you may not know about life on the road, but all of America sees what happens to kids on reality t.v.
Lady, it's been almost four years. If you miss being the wife of someone famous so much, why don't you get over this guy and find another actor's coattails to ride on? Let it go.
And while we're on the subject - no one can steal your spouse if they are happy. I'm not saying it's the wife's fault if a man cheats - it's apparently just not working. Perhaps if Ms. Rimes hadn't come along they may have gotten therapy. But I'm tired of people like Ms. Rimes. Ms. Jolie, etc., permanently branded with the Scarlet A when the guy was just as much at fault. If you are unhappy in a marriage, either get counseling or get out. And if you fall in love with someone who is unhappily married, you walk away until they are happily unmarried. If it is truly "meant to be " (gag), they will wait for you. Other wise you will only inherit the left-over problems from the first (2nd, 3rd) marriage. Seeing how it's trashed her career I bet Ms. Rimes is wishing she had played things diferently.
