Brandi Glanville recently lashed out at LeAnn Rimes over the singer's tell-all interview with the E! Network after photos of the reality TV star's two sons were broadcast during the Sunday special.
The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star, who is the ex-wife of Rimes' husband Eddie Cibrian and mother to his two sons, suggested that the troubled singer was hypocritical for approving the photos in question. In May, it was revealed that Rimes and Cibrian banned Glanville from appearing with the two boys on her hit Bravo reality show.
"My kids can be on (an) E news special apparently but not in the background of the show I am on?" Glanville tweeted Sunday. "Amazing!"
The Bravo TV network reportedly offered Glanville a position as a full-fledged housewife in May although Cibrian- who had an affair with Rimes while still married to Glanville- objected to the former model appearing with their sons on the show and consequently ruined the deal, according to Radar Online.
"The point is he says they can't be on the background of RHOBH, so when I shoot I have to send them off to a babysitter," Glanville wrote in a separate tweet.
Rimes, 30, and Glanville, 39, have been embroiled in a years-long feud ever since Cibrian, 40, admitted to having an affair with the singer before divorcing the mother of two and marrying Rimes.
"Bravo wanted [Brandi] to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines. But Leann and Eddie wouldn't allow it," a source told Radar.
"Brandi didn't expect that LeAnn and Eddie would have objections since the kids have been on the show before, but they did. Eddie said they did not want the children on camera on a regular basis. So Bravo said that Brandi would have to stay a 'friend' and not become an official 'housewife,'" the source added.
In August, Rimes voluntarily checked into rehab to cope with "anxiety and stress" stemming from abuse she allegedly received from critics over her affair with Cibrian. While Glanville openly supported her decision to seek treatment, she recently confessed that she is worried about the well being of her sons.
"(Eddie) doesn't realize that (LeAnn is) using our children and putting them in danger. (She's) using them as a tool to get to me, and not just being a loving parent," Glanville recently told Us magazine.
"LeAnn has a severe eating disorder. She has [a laxative] in every purse. Mason found one on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don't keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy! He gets extremely sick, and that freaks me the f--- out," she added before urging Cibrian not to leave their sons alone with Rimes.
