Brandi Glanville took to Twitter on Thursday evening to declare that she's completely in support of LeAnn Rimes who just won 'The Masked Singer' Season 4. Brandi spoiled the finale before it could air, saying that she hopes that her kids' bonus mother wins the show.

"Hope my kids bonus mom The Sun” Leanne Rines wins the masked singer tonight #Spitfire," her tweet read. Many of her followers perceived this in another sense, given the two have beefed in the past. "I supported you for years, give it up. She loves your kids and she and Eddie obviously love each other. Time to move on. You sound jealous at this point," read one of the tweets. Another person weighed in noting that the reveal, as well as the misspelling, was done on purpose. "Brandi's not wishing her well! She's spoiling her stint on the show on purpose. She spelled her name wrong on purpose, too. Total disrespect. #RHOBH" wrote another. "So petty. How many years has it been? Dragging someone with actual talent. Way to go Madame," read another tweet from one of her 805,000 followers on Twitter.




Brandi didn't lose much time to clarify that she wasn't shading Rimes in any manner and that the social media should stop reading into things. "First of all I did not shade or diss lean rimes I rooted for her to win. She clearly told my kids that she’d never do the show to keep things a secret because they have big mouths. She deserved to win I’m glad she won! stop reading into shit!" she wrote.

For the uninitiated, Brandi feuded with Rimes for close to 10 years. This was after her husband Eddie Cibrian made headlines as his affair with the country singer came to light. He met her on the set of the Lifetime movie 'Northern Lights'. Just like Cibrian, the 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' singer was also married at the time to former backup dancer Dean Sheremet. "LeAnn is a stalker. She refuses to leave us alone — it is shameful and scary. People are going to say it takes two to tango and I get that, but at some point, LeAnn needs to stop asking him to dance," Brandi had told US Weekly in March 2009 about Rimes.

In July the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' alum told the outlet that she'd separated from Cibrian after knowing about his affairs with Rimes and Scheana Marie who went on to star in 'Vanderpump Rules'. It was the same month when a source revealed that Rimes and Sheremet had already separated for "a while" but were "still not divorcing yet" but are taking time apart "while they figure things out." Their divorce process was started a couple of months later and finalized in June 2010. November 2010 was when Rimes spoke about her affair with Cibrian for which she had no regrets. 


"It happens every day to so many people. And if I take away my album sales, my words … you have just another couple. You had two couples whose marriages didn’t work who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love," she told ABC during an interview. In December 2010, Rimes and Cibrian were engaged and Brandi "couldn't care less" about it, a source told US Weekly. In April 2011 they got married and in August 2012, Rimes admitted herself into a program for getting rid of her anxiety. “She’s been stressed about always being called a home-wrecker and also worried that Eddie is cheating on her. She’s been on a downward spiral," a source had said. In June 2017, Brandi made a snide remark about Cibrian and Rimes' marriage. “I think when the 10-year mark [of their marriage] comes and he leaves her and takes half her stuff, we’ll all be good together because they won’t even be related,” Glanville told Daily Pop. “If she doesn’t have a kid with him, then we don’t ever have to see her again," she continued. 

In 2018, Brandi said via a tweet that the feud between her and Rimes and Cibrian was over after they sat down to hash out their issues. Everything appeared to be great between all parties until Brandi put out a tweet saying that the couple was keeping her away from her sons during the pandemic. “It’s very crazy that I’ve been alone for this entire week and I can’t be with my children because it happens not to be my week in our divorce settlement,” Glanville tweeted on March 20. “I think that this is a time with special circumstances and I should be able to be with them," she wrote reigniting the feud.
