Brandi Glanville: Wanting to "Kill" LeAnn Rimes is a Figure of Speech

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville admits she's got quite a temper and likes to speak her mind, but does not actually wish to kill LeAnn Rimes.

In an interview with Australia's NW magazine earlier this week, the 39-year-old admitted she had violent urges the first time she saw LeAnn with her children.

"I remember walking up and there she was with my baby in her lap," she said of the woman Eddie Cibrian left her for, then married. "My blood was boiling ... I thought I was going to kill her. I really thought I was going to physically hurt her."

But Glanville clarified to E! News that while her "total irrational fury" was real, and not even something she regrets, she never meant to literally threaten LeAnn's life.

"Every mother has those protective mother-bear feelings, but I obviously didn't want to kill her," she said. "It was a figure of speech."

She also revealed that Sunday, she and Rimes exchanged Mother's Day emails, and that they've had three-ways (in therapy) with Cibrian to "open up lines of communication."

Brandi Glanville admitted that like many other moments in this ongoing truce, group therapy has been "uncomfortable" at times, but overall a positive experience that's enabled them to act civilly for the sake of the children. That's good at least.

Glanville says she even invited her ex-husband and Rimes over for Easter. "I did it for the kids. I don't know many ex-wives who would do that," she said. "I'm not a hateful person."

Just a slightly crazy one.
