The Word: Things that make you go ‘toot’
There was a time when LeAnn Rimes was world-famous for her talent (right? It’s hard for me to remember that long ago). Now she’s just known for the petty drama with her long-suffering husband, Eddie Cibrian, and his ex, Brandi Glanville.
The latest? Glanville is professing to a tabloid that she doesn’t want Rimes around her sons, Mason, 9 and Jake, 5, because, according to her, they mistake her laxatives for 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,” Glanville says of Rimes to Us Magazine. “Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le’s candies and got extremely ill. And Le’s candies are laxatives. She has one in every purse. Mason found one on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don’t keep sugar in the house,” Glanville explains. “He thought he finally found candy.”
You know, you’d think in between learning shapes and colors, L.A. preschools would also teach life lessons to children being raised by celebrity parents. They could teach the difference between a Skittle and a laxative or the difference between your nanny and your mother — the list is endless.
