Ah, there’s nothing like watching supposedly mature adults hashing out their family disputes in public, all the while, claiming that they only want what’s best for their children. Brandi Glanville and her ex, Eddie Cibrian are the latest to have started indulging in such behaviour though at least it looks as though Glanville is starting to regret her comments about Eddie’s current squeeze, LeAnn Rimes.

Brandi, a star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, seems to have taken umbrage with the idea of LeAnn being a part of her children’s lives (she has two children with Cibrian), claiming that she’s addicted to laxatives (one of which her son accidentally took, thinking it was candy) and that she’s not fit to look after the children, after taking Brandi’s son on a bike ride without a helmet. Brandi, who describes herself on her Twitter profile as “a great mother and friend” at least seems to be backing away from the dispute, which has been escalated by the media. In the last 24 hours, Glanville has posted various messages stating that she doesn’t wish for the problem to continue being discussed and admitted that she shouldn’t have tweeted a screenshot of an email exchange between her and her ex.

“Im taking email down I was n defense mode after seeing EC put his on ‪@radar_online Lets not talk of them anymore I was wrong 2 put it up” before coming in with the classic defence of the bitter ex “This is about my kids not them!!!!!!!!!!!!!” LeAnn Rimes, at least, has managed to stay out of the war of words so far, though she did recently make a sly dig at Brandi, hinting that she was letting her dig her own hole, by keeping quiet on the whole matter.
