Just when you thought the relationship between LeAnn Rimes and Brandi Glanville could never be anything but bitter and strained, the two blonde bombshells threw us all for a loop.
Over the weekend, the Cibrians and Glanville came together for one good cause — to celebrate the seventh birthday of Eddie Cibrian and Glanville’s son, Jake. Not only did Glanville honor her children in her Instagram posts; she also gave us all the shock of a lifetime when she shared a sweet photo with the kids’ stepmom, Rimes.
Surely your response was the same as mine, which was “wait, what?”
In case you are late to the party and are not aware of the backstory here, Rimes began a relationship with Cibrian after she co-starred in a movie with him. While that all seems fairly innocent, each was married at the time; Cibrian’s wife being Real Housewives star, Glanville. After Cibrian and Rimes came clean about their affair, Cibrian and Glanville divorced. In 2011, he married Rimes.
While the family has been rocky over the years, it turns out the three parents of Jake and his older brother Mason have actually focused on their relationships for the sake of the children. In 2016, Glanville shared that the three parents work hard “to be a unit” after they prioritized themselves and their drama for far too long.
She further and maturely stated:
I think that I’ve acted like a child enough during the seven yearsAs 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.
Now, the adults have taken their unity to a new level, sharing it with the world in the form of cozy social media posts. Kudos to this family for putting aside the drama for the sake of the kids!
