On Christmas Day, Brandi posted said photo on Instagram and dubbed the crew a “modern family” leaving many to believe that Brandi, Eddie, LeAnn, and their kids spent Christmas together.
However, turns out that wasn’t the case at all.
On December 26th, Brandi shaded Eddie and LeAnn on Twitter and revealed that she didn’t spend Christmas with them.
“I just want to make this clear I did not spend Christmas Day with my ex, his wife & family. Had I been invited I would have. I was simply picking up the boys car still running in the driveway & asked to take a quick pic,” Brandi tweeted.
‘You don’t owe anyone an explanation. Live your life and do what’s best for you and your sons,” one fan wrote while another said, “So you spent 2 seconds of Christmas Day with them. Talk about misleading.”
Brandi responded to the latter saying, “I spent 5 minutes while picking up my children that is it.”
Meanwhile, HollywoodLife reports that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star wasn’t trying to shade her ex-husband and LeeAnne.
“Brandi wasn’t intentionally trying to throw shade at Eddie and LeAnn” because she is “absolutely in a better place with both Eddie and LeAnn,” but she also “didn’t want her holiday photo of their whole family being misconstrued.”
“She wasn’t invited to spend Christmas with them and thinks it would have been nice if they had extended an invitation,” the source admits.
“Brandi posted that photo to show that they are all in a good place,” but “she’s also a realist,” says the source.
At the end of the day, the Unfiltered podcast host “just wants what is best for her boys and if that means doing everything she can to get along with her ex, then so be it,” adds the source.
However, despite Brandi’s best intentions, it seems that Eddie and LeeAnne didn’t get the “no shade intended memo.”
“LeAnn and Eddie are really trying to not fall in the drama trap Brandi’s trying to get them into with not inviting her to Christmas,” a second source reveals. “They all have made a big effort to be in a better place and civil to each other but there is still the drama that comes up when you have to deal with an ex…LeAnn and Eddie just wanted to have a very relaxed Christmas which they had, and now Brandi has decided to chase drama by talking about it all.”
