LeAnn Rimes is Above the Fray

Or so says her spokesperson, where it relates to her extramarital activities with also-married actor Eddie Cibrian.

LeAnn and Eddie co-starred on a Lifetime movie a few months back and were caught playing tonsil hockey at an L.A. restaurant - - obviously without their respective spouses in tow. The pictures of the two kissing made the tabloid rounds and were news for a few days before the storm seemed to blow over. Until . . . LeAnn and Eddie were spotted having drinks together at a bar at the Staples Center during an L.A. Lakers game. Duh! Either this was a publicity ploy because, let's face it, LeAnn and Eddie are both probably C-list celebs, or these two are a pair of the dumbest cheaters in history.


Eddie's wife, Brandi Glanville, has now gone personally to US Weekly and labelled LeAnn a crazy homewrecking stalker. She claims that LeAnn is constantly texting and calling Eddie -- without explanation, of course, as to why Eddie doesn't change his number. Not that I'm blaming Eddie fully if he is being harassed but hey, if you stick your hand in the crazy cookie jar you may bring back a cookie full of nuts.

Brandi also says that she isn't a scorned wife but a happy wife fighting for what she has. Well, I have to say that if my husband was poking his penis where it didn't belong, I wouldn't exactly label myself or my marriage a "happy" one, but that's just me.

Brandi further tells US Weekly that "LeAnn is a stalker… She refuses to leave us alone — it is shameful and scary. People are going to say it takes two to tango and I get that, but at some point LeAnn needs to stop asking him to dance. LeAnn is so desperate for fame she has left her self-respect in the gutter and doesn’t care who she hurts to get what she wants. She’s hurting my family and messing with the wrong mom.”

I do not condone cheating at all. There is absolutely no excuse for it in my book. I feel sorry for Brandi because no wife deserves that - - but I also question her going to the press. I understand her spite toward LeAnn but it does seem Eddie was a willing participant. And again, why doesn't he change his cell phone number?

LeAnn has answered Brandi's accusations by sending her spokesperson to People magazine and stating “These comments are incredibly defamatory. While there are always two sides to every story, LeAnn continues to remain above the fray and chooses not to play this out in the press.”

Hmmm, so LeAnn is too high and mighty and classy to answer Brandi's charges thru the press (although not too high and mighty and classy to cheat with another woman's husband and father of that woman's children) according to her spokesperson who gave the statement to the press?

And by claiming such comments are defamatory, they are not so subtly suggesting that Brandi could find herself being sued if she's not careful. If indeed LeAnn is calling and texting Eddie repeatedly, and in a manner that he doesn't welcome, Brandi shouldn't have any legal worries.

I did note, though, that LeAnn's spokesperson didn't deny that LeAnn had indeed "messed" with Eddie. Not a single comment about how Eddie and LeAnn were simply co-workers or had worked together on a project.

I really don't care what Eddie has to say about all this -- he's a cheater and he'd best keep his mouth shut, his pants zipped up and kiss his wife's ass -- but I am curious as to what LeAnn's husband would have to say. He's been in Nashville, apparently, while LeAnn has been stalking Eddie in L.A., if Brandi is to be believed. So is he hiding from the press? Or do he and LeAnn have an understanding and he's just doing his thing while she's doing hers?
