LeAnn’s ex Dean Sheremet remained cordial and quiet throughout the chaos LeAnn made of his life. He would say things like he has no ill will toward her. He finally published a cookbook called “Eat Your Heart Out,” which was a bit of a tell-all about their marriage. Afterward, Brandi and Dean paired up for a podcast together. Brandi called his cookbook “classy,” but LeAnn tried to stop it from getting published.
For her part, Brandi finally chilled out. In 2013 she revealed that things had gotten better; even running into each other at soccer practice became a civil affair.
Talking About Blended Families
The Christmas movie opened up an opportunity for a conversation about unconventional families. LeAnn was happy to express her feelings. She said that blending families is a challenge, of course.
But mostly, she wanted to reiterate that she and Eddie had been married seven years (by the time the movie aired on TV) and that, she thought, they were doing pretty good. The couple overcame adversity and were enjoying a very happy family life.
LeAnn genuinely treasures being a mom, even if it’s as a stepmom. She appreciates the fact that there is a Stepmother’s Day and that her family spoils her each year on that day. It falls on the Sunday after Mother’s Day, and she’s been sharing it on Instagram to support other stepmoms. Last we heard, she was hoping for a baby, but no news yet!
The singer says the responsibility of raising kids has been very rewarding. The boys were 2 and 6 when she and Eddie began co-parenting them.
At Jake’s 11th birthday party, mom and stepmom smiled for a selfie. Brandi posted the photo to Instagram with the message, “Peace in #calabasturd hanging for Jake's bday.” Things were getting better. We're not always going to agree but getting along made her kids happy."
In an interview with "People," Brandi said it was a good day. She admitted that the two women actually got to go inside [LeAnn and Eddie’s] house.”
Just because LeAnn and Eddie fell wildly in love doesn’t mean they didn’t have some couple’s issues to deal with. It wasn’t all smooth sailing, and there was a lot to contend with.
LeAnn told "Star" that the couple had attended marriage therapy. She said it helped make their marriage stronger and improved the way they communicate. She said it was especially important for the kids’ best interests.
