Tension Rising Between 'Bonus Mom' LeAnn and Eddie's Ex?
By Rob Shuter Posted May 9th 2011 08:05AM
LeAnn Rimes insists she and Eddie Cibrian's ex, Brandi Glanville, have made peace, but that didn't stop the country songbird from stirring things up over the weekend by trying to nudge her "bonus mom" self into the spotlight for Mother's Day.
"Happy Mother's day weekend to all the Mom's out there," she tweeted on Friday. "The 'Bonus Moms', Godmother's, Grandmothers and anyone who is a woman who helps love and raise children."
The singer laid out the criteria for who should get honored while in Canada on an acting job. While she was honing her skills, Eddie and Brandi's two sons were spending Sunday with their mom. A friend of Brandi's tells me she thinks LeAnn was "trying to make the day about herself."
Tension between the normally friendly LeAnn-Eddie-Brandi hit a peak last week when it was reported that Brandi has been busy taping episodes of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' Sources told E! News that Eddie was vowing legal action if Brandi goes forward with plans to include 7-year-old Mason and 4-year-old Jake, in the Bravo show.
"He has been sending her threatening emails about having their children appear on television," the insider told E!. "If anyone uses the children for press it's Eddie. He just put out a big picture of himself, LeAnn, and the kids from their wedding."
My source, a Brandi confidante, agrees. It was fine for the wedding photos, but not okay for them to show up casually -- in the background -- on 'Housewives'?
"What are they so frightened about?" Brandi's friend tells me. "Are they scared that the camera's will show what a great relationship the kids have with their mom? If you ask me, LeAnn and Eddie are both jealous. They wished Brandi would just go away and let them all pretend to be a new perfect family. Well they need to think again!"
There was no comment from Eddie's or LeAnn's reps.
