When you have a kid they’re your prized possession– nothing can ever get in the way of a mother and her child. You have your perfect little family where daddy is involved and the future looks bright. UNTIL, until one day you guys decide to break-up or divorce.
The break-up may be amicable between the two of you, but what happens when they new girlfriend or boyfriend steps in and takes over the mommy- daddy role?
It can happen for the daddy or the mommy, but I’m going to speak more on the “step-mom” side of things. What got me thinking about such an interesting topic was the war between LeAnn Rimes and her husbands ex-Brandi Glanville. Long story short if you’re not familiar– LeAnn and her now husband Eddie Cibrian had an affair while married to other people. Scandalous, yet not rare in today’s society, but what keeps this war between both women going is LeAnn’s mouth where she continuously claims her step kids as hers, or her boys, her everything.
Let’s take a moment…. Breathe ladies, breathe.
USMagazine reported that a twitter follower tweeted Rimes and said, “I’m not meaning this in a mean way. Do you think a bit of the hate would dwindle, if you were to not mention the kids so much?”
Rimes replied with, “No! They are my life Eddie and my life revolve around them I will not edit myself because of anyone else’s childishness.”
Breathe again ladies.
I’ve always been a LeAnn fan and even though LeAnn and Eddie got together in such a disgusting way I always sided with LeAnn. I was just always annoyed with Brandi not leaving it alone. Until, LeAnn replied with that comment and it really opened up my eyes.
LeAnn you may be the step-“mom” but you are not the mom under no circumstances. The children have a beautiful, healthy mother who is in their lives and they don’t need a woman as delusional as you to make it seem like you’re the mom and better than their own mother.
If I were to part with my partner I would absolutely want him to find a woman who would love my child, take care of them and communicate with me, but not to be disrespectful claiming my child as yours or celebrating Mother’s Day as if you’ve gone through every moment with them since birth. Unless I’m dead who gave you such rights?
And since I’m speaking truthfully, Eddie Cibrian has to show some respect too. Be a man and put her in her place! What if the tables were turned? Oh wait, they can’t be because Brandi isn’t dating anyone serious because you’ve probably scarred her enough not to trust a man. You can imagine how you’d feel though, right? You’re an actor–
No one cares LeAnn! If you feel such ways about your boys keep it to yourself. You’re just putting yourself in a bad light and are causing stress and unneeded commotion into your life.
Now, if you’re a step-mom reading this and are always shoving things in the mother’s face go slap yourself across the face!
