After years of feuding, the two appeared to have finally put aside their differences, which all began nearly 10 years ago when Brandi’s former husband, Eddie Cibrian, had an affair with the country superstar. The two met on the set of the lifetime film Northern Lights in 2009, when LeAnn was still married to her then-husband, Dean Sheremet.
Brandi has barely been able to move past the affair and the divorce in the years since. Just last June, she told an interviewer, “You would think that people would mature and be different, but there’s still some craziness happening.”
Brandi even hinted that Eddie and LeAnn wouldn’t last much longer. “If she doesn’t have a kid with him, then we don’t have to see her again,” she said.
However, on April 14, the ladies were all smiles in a selfie together at the 11th birthday party of Brandi and Eddie’s son Jake. Of the seemingly happy reunion, Brandi tweeted, “The three of us sat and talked for hours and hashed everything out #modernfamily.”
An insider told OK! exclusively that the ladies finally reconciled after deciding to put Eddie and Brandi’s sons, including the 14-year-old Mason, first.
“Brandi and LeAnn hated each other for so long, and anyone could see how stressful it was for the boys,” the source explained. “LeAnn realized it was silly to worry that Brandi wanted Eddie back, and Brandi felt she should cut LeAnn some slack. They just don’t want to fight anymore.”
Added the source, “They both realized they’d been pretty foolish.”
