LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian and his ex-wife Brandi Glanville reunited this week as one big, happy, modern family as they accompanied the actor and reality star’s 18-year-old son on his freshman orientation at his new college campus.
The country singer and friendly exes supported Mason Cibrian Wednesday as he prepares for his freshman semester at Chapman University in Orange, California.
Exclusive photos obtained by DailyMail.com show the blended family having a drama-free day as they tour the university with other incoming students.
LeAnn, 38, dressed casually in a beige high-neck top that she tucked into high-waisted jeans, and wore white sneakers. She wore a brown Gucci belt and a Louis Vuitton crossbody bag.

Eddie and LeAnn, who married in 2011, were the epitome of love despite being in the company of his ex, the singer’s one-time nemesis.
Husband Eddie, 48, kept it low-key in a black t-shirt, white shorts and running shoes, while ex Brandi opted for a more vibrant color scheme, sporting coral pink capri pants with a white top and sneakers.
The four grabbed smoothies in the morning and went for lunch at Urth Caffé, where LeAnn yawned in between making fun of Brandi, 48, her one-time enemy.
Eddie and Brandi split in 2009 after eight years of marriage when it was revealed that he was having an affair with a music star. The couple divorced the following year.
Earlier this month, the RHOBH alum shockingly admitted that she had once threatened to kill her love rival, who tied the knot with Eddie in 2011.
But it’s clear that the two have now put their past bitterness behind them and are often seen at parenting events with Mason and his younger brother Jake, 14.

The 48-year-old reality star wrote an Op-ed for The sun where she talked about the days leading up to the affair that went public, and the ensuing wave of emotions surrounding the end of her marriage.
“Eddie and I got on well and had the best sex life,” she wrote. “I was madly in love and felt like I had the perfect life.”
She explained that she suspected her marriage had come to an end when her husband became distant and unresponsive while working hundreds of miles from home.
“However, there had been warning signs,” she wrote. “I’m a very jealous Scorpio and there were times when I couldn’t contact Eddie and he claimed his phone broke again.
“I sometimes visited him on set and noticed the chemistry with certain co-stars. I’d ask him if anything had happened, but he’d tell me I was crazy.’

Shortly after she became suspicious, Eddie and LeAnn’s affair became public when they “kiss over a table.”
“They sucked on each other’s fingers in the footage, but he told me it was all right,” she recalled. “It was insane.”
When Eddie and LeAnn grew closer, Brandi refused to accept the relationship and was adamant that the country singer was not around their two children until she saw one of her sons sitting on her lap at a football game.
“I had this anger in my body. I really wanted to kill her,” she wrote. “I walked up to her, grabbed Jake, and I looked at her and said, ‘I’ll fucking kill you.’
After more than a decade of fighting, Glanville was able to put the past behind them and reconcile with Eddie and LeAnn for the sake of their children.
She recently commented on the Hollywood Raw podcast that she and Rimes are like “sister women” and “get along very well.”
“I think our kids have had a lot to do with it because the kids love it when we’re all together, and it’s so obvious. They are so happy.’

The reality star and country singer have been spotted attending Mason and Jake’s soccer games together and celebrating the holidays, including last Christmas and Easter, as a family.
On Mother’s Day this year, LeAnn and Brandi appeared in a photo with Eddie’s parents, Jake, Mason and Eddie, Hortensia and Carl, which both ladies shared on their Instagrams.
Leann simply captioned the photo ‘Happy Mother’s Day! #mothersday2021 #mothersday’ while Brandi wrote: ‘#ModernFamily Today was a great day. I love this crew (honestly),’ adding a heart emoji and two crying laughing smiley emojis.
Glanville also had a photo of Leann joining in on Mason’s big day.
In the photo, she poses with her stepson wearing a long black skirt with a high slit, a black leather jacket and a white shirt that seemed to have the appropriate text ‘I’m here’.
