Brandi Glanville's Ex Eddie Cibrian Won't Let Their Kids Film RHOBH Because They Were 'Teased' (EXCLUSIVE)
Bravo wanted to feature Mason, 8, and 5-year old Jake as part of a key storyline detailing their mother’s long-time feud with her ex-husband, 38, who left her for country superstar LeAnn Rimes, who he has been married to for the past year. The couple renewed their vows, last week.
A source close to the production told Celebuzz that Cibrian, 38, intervened on Glanville’s plans to feature their children. He had a lawyer advise her that she needed him to agree, given the pair share joint legal custody of the children.
“Eddie had to protect the kids,” a source said. “Filming in the home is not healthy, especially at Mason and Jake’s ages.”
Indeed, as the insider pointed out, Jake was “teased and bullied” at school after he was featured during an episode last season, peeing on the lawn at co-star Adrienne Maloof’s Beverly Hills mansion.
In a tweet on Wednesday night, 39-year-old Glanville alluded to the simmering tension between her and Cibrian.

A source close to Glanville insisted Mason and Jake would’ve had to be featured on the popular Bravo show if she was a fulltime cast member, otherwise “she wouldn’t have time to see the kids, at all.”
A credible Bravo insider told Gossip Cop that Glanville would still be a "Housewife -- with or without kids.”
