Brandi had no problem putting a tell-all out there, and she called it “Drinking & Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders.” It came out in 2013 and hit number one on “The New York Times” Bestsellers list.
Her story received praise from critics. “LA Weekly” called it the best celeb book ever. In it, she discussed her life after her husband’s affairs and how it affected her kids and the family. It did not disappoint; she dished some juicy details about her ex-husband’s affairs.
Rumors of a Tell-All
With details of the drama flowing in from Eddie’s other women, enquiring minds naturally anticipated a tell-all from LeAnn’s perspective. People were curious to hear her side. This was flatly put to rest in a Tweet by the country music star.
What she did contribute came by way of a new single called “Crazy Women” from the album "Lady and Gentlemen." She sings, crazy women “keep their crazy hidden till they’re pushed off the deep end.” Why? “Well, he cheats and lies, and then he plays the victim” (then he blames it on the women). Ending, “Crazy women are made by crazy men.”
Brandi Admits She Has a Problem with LeAnn as a Stepmom
While Eddie stood by LeAnn and expressed nothing but happiness about how much his boys Mason and Jake love LeAnn and how much she loves them, Brandi started making demands. In a Tweet, LeAnn Rimes referred to the kids as “my boys,” and Brandi was not having it.
In December of 2012, she went to "US Weekly" and dished a story about her boy getting sick from a laxative from LeAnn’s purse. This compounded her worries about LeAnn’s rehab. She stated, “I, unfortunately, don’t find her to be stable, and I don’t want her around my kids when Eddie’s not there.”
A Message to Eddie
Brandi divulged a lot about herself in "Drinking & Tweeting." She described her anguish in intimate detail and related stories of her suffering. But in the end, she made sure to "thank" Eddie.
It wouldn’t be Brandi without a passive-aggressive backhanded jab, so here it is: “I would like to thank my ex-husband, Edward Cibrian, for giving me all the material I could ever need to write this book and for helping me discover the strong independent woman inside of me.” With an intimate peek into his two affairs, there was plenty of material!
The Juicy Details
In her book, Brandi included descriptions of Eddie and LeAnn’s affair that had not been aired. She recounted the story about how she first found out he was cheating on her. She had flown out to the "Northern Lights" set to see Eddie but instead witnessed LeAnn flirting with him.
At home, Eddie tried to console her. He swore that he was faithful. Kissing her and promising that his friendship with LeAnn was innocent, Brandi believed this and his “countless lies” only to suffer the coming betrayal.
