- Twitter: LeAnn Rimes
LeAnn Rimes recently lashed out at her longtime rival Brandi Glanville, suggesting that unlike her, the reality TV star does not actually have any talent.
In a bizarre interview with the U.K. paper Metro, Rimes, who infamously had an extramarital affair with Glanville's ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, accused the single mom of cashing in on her pain. The troubled singer has been embroiled in a seemingly never-ending feud with Glanville following her 2009 affair with Cibrian, 41.
"Some of the stories are so insane," Rimes told Metro regarding the media scrutiny.
"I try to let it roll off my back but it's gone on for a long time. I have a talent, I can sing. I don't earn my money from trying to hurt people or get in the tabloids," she sniped.
Rimes, 30, was admitted into rehab in 2012 due to stress and anxiety allegedly stemming from abuse on Twitter. Former fans turned on the country singer due to her tryst with Cibrian, as the pair were both married to other people at the time.
As a result of her poor choices, Rimes' career has been affected with an overwhelming amount of her publicity now stemming from her affair as opposed to her music.
While Glanville is yet to respond to Rimes' latest attack, the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star has previously revealed a lot in her new book entitled "Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders."
Inside The New York Times bestseller, Glanville, 40, detailed how she discovered Cibrian's affair with Rimes and how their indiscretions affected their two sons. Rimes is said to be furious over much of the book's contents and subsequently Glanville was allegedly threatened with a lawsuit.
"Eddie pretty much plans on suing when the book comes out," Glanville previously told U.S. Magazine.
While some critics believe Rimes is genuinely sorry for her affair with Cibrian, who is now her husband, Glanville is not convinced.
"To this day, I haven't heard an apology. When LeAnn set her sights on Eddie, she was relentless about getting him, and the damage her decision would cause never seemed to register," Glanville said.
"She won. I'll give her that. But she also won a marriage full of doubt, insecurities, and a perpetual voice in her had saying, is he telling the truth? For that, I pity her," she continued.
