For someone who claims that she doesn’t like to talk about her private life, she sure does a lot of it. While bonus mom LeAnn Rimes wants you to stop talking about her homewrecking ways, she can’t help but bring it up over and over again.
LeAnn went on the record in an interview with the Tennessean to talk about her relationship with Eddie Cibrian and what his two children, Jake and Mason, mean to her. She even went as far as calling the boys her own, despite not being blood related to them.
Just as a reminder, LeAnn and Eddie began their relationship while Eddie was still married to his then-wife, ex-model Brandi Glanville. The two have since divorced, with LeAnn and Eddie officially tying the knot earlier this year.
Even though she has the love of her life now and is happy in her step mom role, she somehow makes it sound like “it’s really hard” for her to build a new life and move on from the messy drama between her and Eddie and of course Brandi.
“It’s really hard,” she tells the Tennessean. “I’m not going to lie. But I feel the need to actually talk about it sometimes, my happiness with his children, because I do love his kids and because I don’t feel like I could love Eddie and (not love his children). I don’t believe that a marriage and family will work without a stepmother walking into that role and fully giving themselves of time and love.”
She adds, “And it’s really a fine line when I have to talk about … when I say ‘my kids,’ but that’s honestly (how I feel). I say that very politely and tread lightly on that because I don’t want to hurt anyone. When I say that and anything I share on Twitter, it’s all out of happiness and just my life. This is my life and our life now.”
Honestly, we’re not sure why LeAnn keeps on bringing this subject up when she knows it’s going to be spun totally differently by the press. The best respect she could perhaps give to the mother of her husband’s kids and the two boys themselves is not talk about them at all and focus on her music instead, right?
But that wouldn’t be the LeAnn we know. This here is our favorite quote:
“I know Eddie’s kids will have many questions we will be more than happy to answer, and hopefully they will learn from our mistakes and not make them,” she says. “But, it’s really not anyone’s business.”
You’re right LeAnn, it’s nobody’s business, so why are you still talking about it?
