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

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

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    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.
