Burying the hatchet. Brandi Glanville revealed in a new interview that she has finally made peace with LeAnn Rimes over the country singer’s 2009 affair with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum’s then-husband Eddie Cibrian.
During an appearance on SiriusXM’s Conversations With Maria Menounos, the Bravo star, 43, opened up about how she and Rimes, 33, have come to accept their new life as a “modern family.”
“I think that I’ve acted like a child enough during the seven years,” she said on Tuesday, June 28. “We’ve definitely had our moments of not putting the kids first and not being proper adults, and as the kids are getting older, something did happen with one of them, and I don’t really want to go into it, but it made the three of us — Eddie, LeAnn and myself — realize we have to be together on this.”
The former Real Housewife continued, “We have to be a unit, the three of us. We are a modern family, and we have to stick together in order to keep these little boys in line and to keep them from not manipulating us against each other, and we need to be together for them. So that’s what happened really, something with the kids, and we just came together. And it’s all fine. And I think that LeAnn finally realizes that I don’t want your man. That’s all done, but we can all still get along and be friends, and so we are.”
Glanville and Cibrian, 43, who tied the knot in 2001 and share sons Mason, 13, and Jake, 9, finalized their divorce in 2010.
The Sunset Beach actor and the “How Do I Live” crooner, who was married to Dean Sheremet at the time of the affair, later married in April 2011.
Last week, during the June 21 episode of Famously Single, Glanville divulged a little about her battle with postdivorce depression.
“I had a couple years of depression,” she explained on the E! reality series. “I started drinking too much. I had to up my antidepressants. I cried all day, every day. I lost too much weight, but I had to take care of my two kids, and it wasn’t about me anymore. I knew it had to be done.”
