Real Housewives Parenting Tips: Brandi Glanville Uses Twitter To Co-Parent & Says Her Son Ate One Of LeAnn Rimes’ Laxatives

Real Housewives fans, pull up a chair and behold what definitely was not on that reunion special…parenting tips from your favorite reality stars! That whole Brandi Glanville /LeAnn Rimes debacle doesn’t seem to show any signs of cooling off given some pretty hefty accusations by the reality star. And that she seems to have invited Us Weekly over to exclusively tell them what a crappy step-mom LeAnn Rimes is.

In a pretty long-winded and rambly interview that claims everything from child negligence to eating disorders to her ex-husband being under a “spell,” Brandi says that her 9-year-old son Mason consumed one of LeAnn’s laxatives:

Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le’s candies and got extremely ill. And Le’s candies are laxatives. It was a big f-cking deal for me, and I lost my mind. Mason told me about it, and then Eddie’s assistant, who was working for me at the time, also told me about it out of concern for my children…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–k out.

But because Brandi alleges that her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian and wife LeAnn Rimes don’t take her calls or emails, the mother of two turns to Twitter to communicate with her sons’ father and step-mom:

Yes, I am very outspoken on Twitter. It does get reactions, it does get things done. If I have to use it as a tool to coparent, I will, and it is what it is. I needed [Eddie] to react, I needed him to at least address that there’s something going on that’s not OK.

Hear that single moms and dads? When in doubt, tweet those gripes about respecting drop-off time, coordinating holiday schedules, and planning student-teacher conferences. If that doesn’t work, call your friends over at Us Weekly to give your sons’ step-mom a real piece of your mind.
