The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is dishing the ups and downs of co-parenting with Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Glanville opened up about the continual struggle to create a healthy blended family for her boys. She and Cibrian share sons 16-year-old on Mason and 13-year old son Jake.
“I don’t know how we did it, all three of us, LeAnn, Eddie and myself. We, that’s a big thing for me to say, we. We have amazing children, Mason’s 6’4 ″ he’s 16, gorgeous. Jake’s gorgeous, and he knows it! But they’re so smart, they’re kind, they’re good people,” the proud mama said.
Glanville and Cibrian were married for nine years before he had an affair with Rimes on the set of their Lifetime film, Northern Lights. The affair, as well as divorce, caused a lot of friction between the reality TV star and her former husband. He almost immediately married Rimes, which did not help the already delicate situation.
It was not an easy journey to finding a healthy balance for the boys. Glanville and Rimes were embroiled in a nasty public feud for years before agreeing to put their differences aside for the boys. The adults have come a long way, but that doesn’t mean co-parenting as a group is always easy.
“I mean, it comes and goes. We’ll have a fight one week, and then we won’t. But that comes with parenting two, almost teenagers. One teenager and one almost teenager,” the RHOBH alum expressed.
Earlier this year, the reality TV star shared an awkward photo of the blended family celebrating Easter together on social media. It had been over a year since the parents decided to call a truce, and she was letting her followers know the journey is challenging.
Along with discussing co-parenting with Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes, former RHOBH star Brandi Glanville dished about her dating life and one Tinder struggle.
“There are a few boys, men I’m with men. Unfortunately, my age on Tinder says 28, and we all know I’m not that, but I don’t know how to change it! So, every time I match with someone, I have to say, ‘You know I’m 46, right?’ So far, it’s working. There’s been some un-matches, with the silence and un-matching. It’s OK!” she admitted.
The single mom is still looking for love, but at least she has managed to find a way to co-parent with her cheating ex and his wife.
