I have only been a blog writer for three months, actively on Twitter for one month and yet Sunday made the fourth time that LeAnn Rimes has publicly bashed me for writing about her. I am a celebrity blogger writing about a celebrity – it is not a hard concept to understand – and yet because I write the truth which she cannot accept she continues to berate me. First she called me a horrific human being, then I was an uniformed (sic) fool, then she said I was sad and insecure, and now she says I have a sick obsession.
It all stemmed from my post that highlighted how once again LeAnn condoned her fans bashing of her stepsons’ mother Brandi Glanville. When her fan insinuated that Brandi was worthless, instead of asking for peace – like Brandi has done for her – she chose to call me sad and insecure. After my post ran another one of her fans tried to blame both LeAnn’s bad behavior as well as the fan who called Brandi worthless on me saying that I baited them. I baited no one. I simply quote retweeted a tweet that was posted on a public forum with my opinion. It was at this point her fan started tweeting her disagreement with my opinion with LeAnn tagged in the tweets. I never imagined her fan would tweet me since my opinion was not directed at her, furthermore I could never have predicted that this same fan would call Brandi worthless and that LeAnn would turn around and bash me when what she should have done is stand up for her stepsons mom. But of course the queen of displacing blame has chosen to displace the blame on me and to once again bash me on Twitter saying that I have a “sick obsession.”
First of all, if nobody was interested in reading the truth about LeAnn I wouldn’t be writing it – but they are. She didn’t make the most hated celeb list because the majority of the public agrees with her behavior, but because they find it offensive. Most people do not find gloating over having an affair, exploiting children, and terrorizing your stepsons mother endearing – quite the opposite actually. LeAnn seems to believe that if people “hate” you that it means that you are doing something right and have made it. This is one of her biggest delusions, but it is not her only delusion.
Furthermore I find her comments towards me, as well as her supporter’s comments ironic as they actually best applied to LeAnn. Let’s talk about baiting for a minute. LeAnn has continuously tried to bait and taunt Brandi through mean spirited and inappropriate tweets. The best example is from a little over a year ago on November 30, 2012 when she referred to Mason and Jake as my boys: “Flying out with my boys in a few hrs. Love that it’s a family tour weekend. It’s always more fun when they are with me.” More recently – on July 3, 2013 – she said that her tour bus is Mason and Jakes, “happiest place on earth.” She has also offended people by repeatedly referring to herself as a bonus mom and her stepsons as her bonus sons. Seeing as she was sleeping with their father while he was still married to their mother, and caused them stress and pain the word bonus is not what comes to most rational people’s minds to describe the situation.
Lindsey Ferrier of suburbanturmoil.com put it best when she wrote her piece called, “This is not a bonus mom,” which was specifically about LeAnn calling herself a bonus mom and trying to claim ownership over her stepsons. The writer of the blog is a stepmother so she knows firsthand what that entails and she so eloquently wrote, “From one stepmother to another? You are not a Bonus Mom. If we want to get specific here, you’re actually the one that ended the relationship between the real mom and dad of those “adorable Rascals.” I feel pretty certain that you are a “bonus” that those boys could have done without.”
She also went on to offer this excellent advice to LeAnn, “My advice to LeAnn, to other new stepmoms, hell, to myself ten years ago, is to take the “wind beneath their wings” approach. Avoid conflict with the kids’ mom. Be ready and willing to take a step back at birthday parties and sports events. You do not need to prove to the world how much YOU CARE. Be there for the kids when they need you, but be willing to back off …” Of course this is sound advice that LeAnn never took.
LeAnn doesn’t just bait Brandi with tweets about Brandi’s sons, she also baits her with direct insults. She has laughed at Brandi, insinuated Brandi needs rehab, called her horrible, a witch, and the list goes on and on. In fact in the recorded phone call with the Smiley’s that she ridiculously sued over she called Brandi, “Vindictive as shit,” and said she is teaching the boys (Mason and Jake) this.
That is baiting.
Now let’s move on to her comment about me having a sick obsession. This is pretty funny considering the fact that she is the one that stalked a family and continues to stalk her husband’s ex-wife. A blog writer writing about a celebrity does not have a sick obsession – as soon as the public tires of you the writer will too. Stalking a family because of what appears to be a real life case of fatal attraction meets single white female is a sick obsession.
When LeAnn’s husband Eddie Cibrian was still married to Brandi, LeAnn cancelled a concert feigning sickness only to attend a Lakers game where she “accidentally” bumped into Eddie. Most recently she copied Brandi again when a week after Brandi attended a Lakers game, LeAnn decided to go to one after years of not attending a game. Creating fake Twitter accounts to harass your husband’s ex and those who support her is a sick obsession. Copying your husband’s ex-wife’s is a sick obsession. Here is breakdown of some of LeAnn’s troubling obsession with all things Brandi:
• LeAnn lost a ton of weight in an attempt to be as thin as Brandi.
• Brandi posts that she would have liked to be a Dermatologist, LeAnn posts that SAME day that if she wasn’t a singer she would have been a Dermatologist.
• LeAnn goes to Brandi’s plastic surgeon and gets breast augmentations done in Brandi’s size AFTER being with Eddie Cibrian.
• Brandi purchases a white Range Rover, so LeAnn trades her black one in for a white one.
• Brandi posted a picture of a pair of Christian Louboutin Toutenkaboucle shoes that she wants. Shortly after that LeAnn purchased that exact pair and is photographed in them EVERYWHERE.
• Brandi takes a bikini selfie, LeAnn then takes a bikini selfie from the same angle. Brandi calls her out on this one calling LeAnn creepy and a stalker.
• Brandi tweets that she wants the Louie Vuitton handcuff bracelets, 10 days later LeAnn tweets that she got the handcuff bracelets.
• Brandi got married to Eddie in the Spring at a private home near the beach in a Reem Acra wedding dress. LeAnn got married to Eddie in the Spring at a private home near the beach in a Reem Acra wedding dress.
That is a sick obsession.
I understand that LeAnn doesn’t like when writers dare to tell the truth about her – but then perhaps she live more quietly. Twitter has been her undoing, because left to her own devices she has showed the world whom she truly is and no amount of spinning by her or those who support can change this.
And by the way I noticed your self-help book on your vine – You Are Not Your Brain: The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life. Give yourself a special LeAnn Rimes Christmas and take the time to read the book.
