LeAnn Rimes and Brandi Glanville Trade Addiction Jibes

Two sides of a love triangle swap ugly public charges of alcoholism, eating disorders and narcissism.

A war of words between singer LeAnn Rimes, her husband Eddie Cibrian and his ex-wife—Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville—just plumbed new depths. In an open e-mail, Glanville accuses Rimes of being addicted to alcohol and prescription drugs, dubbing her "angelfish" because she "sings like an angel and drinks like a fish." That e-mail followed an interview with Glanville, published yesterday in Us Weekly, in which she said that Rimes has a "severe eating disorder"—and that Glanville's son got sick after swallowing one of the singer's laxatives. "Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le's candies and got extremely ill. And Le's candies are laxatives. Mason found it on the floor and thought it was a Skittle!" she said. "LeAnn has a severe eating disorder. She has [a laxative] in every purse." It all kicked off with a tweet last week in which Rimes referred to her stepsons—Glanville's biological sons—as "my boys." A furious Glanville tweeted back, "They are my boys, Eddie's boys and your stepsons...for now." Cibrian finally entered the fray with a public e-mail denying all of Glanville's accusations. "It is absolutely ridiculous that my ex-wife continues to put the personal lives of myself, LeAnn, our sons and my family on public display for the sake of her notoriety," he wrote. "She is fully capable and has the means of contacting myself and LeAnn privately...the fact she chooses not to should be pretty transparent. One day, when wine and narcissism are not consuming you, you will realize how fortunate the kids are to have LeAnn in their life." Rimes has previously said that she doesn't have an eating disorder, but she did undergo a 30-day treatment program for stress and anxiety last August. Cibrian and Glanville were married for nine years; he left her in 2009 due to his affair with Rimes, who was also married at the time.

"I think admitting to having a problem in general is the right first step, but to admit powerlessness is unhealthy. .. I think admitting powerlessness is more harmful because it doesn't help. Admitting that you want and need help is more useful after admittance."
