One big, happy family. Over the course of the past decade, Brandi Glanville, ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his wife Leann Rimes have managed to form a coparenting relationship that works for all three of them.
“When I was first around the kids, I didn’t know what was expected of me. Little things that were so childlike about them that I didn’t have about me. It’s been a really big learning experience for me,” the “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” singer told Refinery29 in May 2017 about becoming a stepparent to the sons Cibrian shares with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum. “It’s pushed my buttons, which has always made me look and see where I need more healing on myself.”
Rimes continued: It’s been really rewarding to see them grow up, and know that I have a part in that. That responsibility, to help raise kids, it’s something that hits you really hard. It was something I was up for the challenge of. They bring so much joy to my life, and it’s a new experience every day.”
In March 2009, Us Weekly broke the news that Rimes — who was married to Dean Sheremet from 2002 to 2010 — was having an affair with the Third Watch alum after they met on the set of the Lifetime movie Northern Lights. Four months later, Glanville told Us exclusively that she and Cibrian had called it quits the same month the “How Do I Live” singer and Sheremet also confirmed the end of their marriage. Rimes and Cibrian tied the knot in April 2011.
Despite their years-long public feud, Glanville revealed in April 2018 that the trio had finally buried the hatchet. “The three of us sat and talked for hours hashed everything out and the feud with @leannrimes Eddie and I is over,” the reality TV personality wrote via Twitter at the time.
One year later, Glanville explained that the trio decided to make amends for the sake of her sons with the Country Comfort actor, Mason and Jake, who were born in 2003 and 2007, respectively. “I don’t know how we did it, all three of us, LeAnn, Eddie and myself,” she told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “We, that’s a big thing for me to say, we. We have amazing children … they’re so smart, they’re kind, they’re good people.”
She continued: “I mean, it comes and goes,” she added. “We’ll have a fight one week, and then we won’t. But that comes with parenting two almost teenagers. One teenager and one almost teenager.”
