LeAnn Rimes: “I Would Love To Be A Mom”

The 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards in Vegas

Although reality television star Brandi Glanville is clearly unimpressed with LeAnn Rimes‘ stepmothering skills, that hasn’t affected the 30-year-old country crooner’s hopes of becoming a mom one day.

Eddie [Cibrian] and I talk about having kids and I would love to be a mom,” LeAnn reveals to E! News

“I didn’t ever want to bring a child into the world without taking care of myself. And that was another reason I decided to go [into treatment],” she adds of her August stint in a 30-day stress and anxiety rehab program.

Brandi recently revealed to Us Weekly that her 9-year-old son Mason became “extremely ill” after eating one of LeAnn’s laxatives by accident, mistaking it for candy.

“She has one in every purse. Mason found on on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don’t keep sugar in the house,” Brandi explains. “He thought he finally found candy.”

“I, unfortunately, don’t find her to be stable and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there — or at least the nanny, his parents, someone,” she adds. “Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le’s candies and got extremely ill. And Le’s candies are laxatives. It was a big f–king deal for me, and I lost my mind.”

LeAnn’s rep asserts that Brandi’s allegations are “just more inaccuracies and half-truths.”

In the E! interview with mama Giuliana Rancic, LeAnn recounts how her extramarital affair with Eddie ruined her public image.

“I was America’s Sweetheart for so many years, but it was just like everyone turned,” she says.

LeAnn’s own decision to end her marriage to Dean Sheremet as Eddie divorced Brandi wasn’t an easy one, she points out.

“No one will ever understand how much thought and hurt were put into our decision,” LeAnn claims.

“I was incredibly depressed and not quite sure of who I was,” she says regarding her reasoning behind rehab. “People are so quick to judge and make decisions for themselves about situations they know absolutely nothing about.”

Adds her husband: “My heart goes out to her every single time she’s getting bashed for something. It’s unfair for her and it’s unfair for us. It (the affair) wasn’t frivolous, you know.”

Eddie and Brandi are also parents to 5-year-old Jake.

    Any affair is frivolous. And yes your reputation gets ruined. Did LeAnn not know this? If she doesn’t want the reputation of homewrecker than maybe she shouldn’t have been one! And eddie is just as guilty. Maybe if LeAnn did something with her singing instead of taking laxatives and tweeting, then America would like her more. Just saying

    All of the “adults” in this scenario are behaving very badly but clearly, Eddie and LeAnn are the crux of the problem. It is their selfishness and immaturity that continues to create a hostile atmosphere for those children and the courts should step in and do something about that. LeAnn has been a spoiled brat her whole life. This whole situation is the result of her believing herself entitled to have whatever she wants. Her slutty escapades are fairly well documented and they are largely responsible for the divide that occurred betwen her and her dad. LeAnn not only feels that she is entitled to have whatever she wants, but also feels that she has a right to villify anyone who calls her on her selfish decisions. The reality here is that she hates Brandy because Brandy is a constant reminder of the truth that she stole someone else’s husband and that humiliates her and gets in the way of her constant attempt to convince the media that she is just a misunderstood innocent little lamb. LeAnn Rimes has serious character flaws that she will never address because pride rules her world and history has shown that she will destroy anyone, including those who trust and love her, in order to protect her pride and get what she wants. LeAnn has shown herself to be maniacally selfish in all areas of her life, not just with her affair and marriage. Brandy is not her enemy. A lack of integrity is her enemy. She continues to need alcohol and emotional “rehab” because at the end of any given day, when she’s alone with her own thoughts and lies, she knows this to be true but just doesn’t have the guts to admit it and work to correct it. In the end, Eddie’s children will be more screwed up than she is for having been subjected to her neuroses. Unfortunately, their cowardly, gold-digging, lazy father isn’t man enough to put their welfare above his desire to live in the comfort of LeAnn’s wealth so there is no one able to save them. Brandy is not a perfect person but she’s also not the crazy person that LeAnn wants us all to think. She’s a woman who sometimes behaves like a crazy person, as any of us would do, because her family was destroyed by someone who continues to publicly taunt her and to attempt to steal the affection of her own children from her. I don’t know a parent alive who wouldn’t be thrown totally off balance by that. It’s time for the courts to step in and insist that LeAnn get some help and learn to respect the boundaries of step-parenting. Clearly she currently acknowledges none at this time. She could learn a thing or two from Amy Grant and Vince Gill. Amy acknowledges that her decision to end her marriage and marry Vince was a selfish one. She doesn’t make any attempt to villify Vince’s ex-wife, nor do she or Vince make any attempt to pretend that their children do not have other biological parents that deserve to be respected and considered. Their basic approach is that they can’t change that which has been done but they can love better, everyone who is now part of their newly defined family. It isn’t ideal. Affairs should never happen. But when they do, the families involved do not have to spiral completely out of control. It’s all about letting go of pride and making healthy, unselfish choices that give the children involved the best possible chance to find happiness and security amidst the brokenness.

      Very long comment that I almost didn’t read, but I agree with just about everything you said. Sometimes it’s not what we do, but how we do it. She is not perfect and it’s okay that we all mistakes. However, like you said, she and Eddie (and even somewhat Brandi who I really like) have handled this very poorly. Plenty of people in Hollywood and around the world have affairs, and not all things are hunky dory and sunshine and rainbows, but not everyone taunts their husband’s ex wives publicly either. It’s a sad situation but you think a little discretion and class would be in order. Guess not.

      • Tara

        Both comments are very well said!

  • Whitney

    I think it’s shameful how people continue to bash this woman. These folks have private lives that we may not approve of or agree with, but they are still human and have feelings and lives to go on with.

    I’m sick of people demonizing the women in these situations, calling them “homewreckers”. Eddie is the one who has children, not LeAnn. He left his wife, so technically HE’S the homewrecker of his OWN family.

    It’s morally reprehensible, immature, selfish, and dangerous to have extra marital affairs-but they made their decisions and are now married. It’s time for everyone to move on. The bottom line, is that it’s been years, and the continued public and media based bullying and shaming of this woman is obviously having real physical and mental consequences on her. Contributing to that because of her bad behavior is, in my opinion, really hateful.

      True but if a man is going to stray he needs someone to do it with. Therefore while Eddie is scum- LeAnn had all the ability in the world to walk away. She has equal if not more culpability here. She is not a victim.

      • Anon

        Ok, so for how long with this be brought up every time her name is mentioned? Get over it already.

    • Rose

      Leann is not being bullied. To equate calling someone out on their bad behavior with bullying is an insult to people who truly have been bullied.

  • anonymous

    I just have one thing to say to her……Fuck her…

  • KoKo

    Just reading the comments on ANY LeAnn Rimes item is priceless. She’s such a loser

  • Ivy

    Their kid would look like Gilbert Gottfried……

  • May

    Poor baby. Parents with absolutely no morals doesn’t sound very good.

  • Rosy

    I feel like any babies they would have would be very squinty

    • Allison

      Bahahaha! Girl you know they both thought they looked good posing for this picture! LeAnn looks toe up from the flo’ up.

    Eddie doesn’t talk to Leann, hence why she spends so much time tweeting and blogging about Brandi’s kids. Leann also said in this interview that she spent 30 days in rehab and that Eddie visited her in rehab. We all know that this was a lie. If Eddie had visisted her in rehab, she would have tweeted photos of it or had a pap get photos. How is it that the paps didn’t get ANY photos of Leann during her stint in rehab?

    “Rehab” was most likely a fertility clinic.

    Leann ruined her own image. She had a chance to do the right thing and didn’t. What mattered most to Leann was that people thought that she “won”.

    Seriously, she wants people to understand how hard this was all for her? The only hard decision she had to make was how much was going to pay Eddie.

    Eddie is such a liar. He only did this interview with Leann because Leann’s fans had been hounding her about how Eddie never defends her in public. Eddie’s heart doesn’t even go out to his kids who are being exposed by Leann, so why would we believe that he cares anything about Leann? This guy uses his own kids to taunt his ex-wife and he doesn’t think twice about the hurt he causes the kids or his ex-wife. This interview just shows what little Eddie cares about Leann. He uses Leann to get back at his ex-wife.
