The relationship between LeAnn Rimes and Brandi Glanville has never really been anything but rocky (or at least the public portion hasn't), and sporadic mud-slinging about LeAnn's mothering skills vs. Brandi's has definitely been a part of it.
But, nearly three years after marrying Brandi's ex, Eddie Cibrian, and becoming stepmom to their sons, Mason and Jake, is LeAnn now trying to limit Brandi's role in the boys' lives?
The National Enquirer is reporting that the country singer, "appalled" by some of the comments Brandi's been making to the media as well as by her on-camera behavior on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, is urging her hubby to take action to get primary custody of his kids.
A source tells E! News, however, that there if no truth to the report of LeAnn pressing Eddie to go after custody.
In fact, Brandi is laughing about it, the insider adds.
The comments that supposed had Rimes all riled up, meanwhile, included Glanville's latest doozy, a joke she made during her podcast about being annoyed by a school principal molesting her sister back when they were kids but not her.
She later apologized via Twitter, writing, "I was interviewing stand up comedians for my podcast! Had to go through their stand up routines to know what 2 talk about! I'm sorry if I offended anyone with @Mrjimflorentine @PodcastOne interview My show is a COMEDY based entertainment show for adults I'm sorry."
Brandi displayed more of that signature candor last week, when she told the Times of London that she and Eddie were "never truly rich," despite their pretty lavish lifestyle.
"We were ghetto rich," she said, per Huffington Post. "We had the nice cars, the nice house and the nice jewels, but we probably had a second and a third mortgage. We were living paycheck to paycheck, with no savings."
Glanville, for better or worse, is pretty used to tabloids chronicling her comings and goings with varying degrees of accuracy. On Tuesday, two days before the Enquirer went with its custody story, she tweeted, "I'm over bull s--t people- that's it goodnight."
