    As usual, Jodi Rimes made it ALL about herself. She used those girls to promote herself and her cheating husband. She was manically posting photos and videos of him. How sad. The only way she could get Eddie to attend to the AI was to drag his girlfriend Lizzy there. What a shame. Eddie was very drunk in the videos and photos. Why is Eddie wearing the same outfit he wore on Sunday? Is Jodi Rimes now claiming that this was filmed on Sunday, the day that Eddie was attending the upfronts with Rachel and Jaina?

    What is she is wearing? Why would she stand next to 2 kids dressed like she was going to a club? Jodi Rimes looks dirty, like she was getting drunk behind stage.

    Those kids look terrified of Jodi Rimes. This is how low Jodi Rimes career has sunk, she has to use kids to keep her name in the headlines.

    She is drunkenly all over the child like she did to Carly Rose on X Factor.

    So how did Jodi Rimes get an invite to AI? Did Darrell beg AI to or threaten AI with a lawsuit?

    For someone who claims that he dislikes Jodi Rimes Cassidy/Ned sure does spend a lot of time manically writing hate posts about me. He reminds me of that poster Mrs Freeze/Joy/C.R. It makes you wonder. You can always tell when a Jodi Rimes minion is pretending to be someone who dislikes Jodi Rimes because they always hate on the people who comment on Jodi Rimes, rather than on Jodi Rimes herself.

    Jodi Rimes is still milking this. She is still on twitter maniacally posting photos from the parking lot outside AI of course. She also used this opportunity to manically talk about Brandi’s kids and then remind everyone about Stepmother’s Day since the media was too busy paying attention to more important things to report on her happy family staged photo-op in the parking lot of Nobu.

    Jodi Rimes was SO honored to be “asked”(Darrell called AI and either begged or threatened with a lawsuit unless Jodi Rimes was allowed to sing HER song) by AI to “surprise”(make it all about herself, her marriage to a drunk man who cheats on her, the “reimagined” single, and Stepmother’s Day) girls, that she spelled Dyxie’s name wrong. Jodi Rimes couldn’t even be bothered to spell their name correction, so why would anyone believe that she showed on AI for the girls? It was ALL about promoting herself and she really milked it as much as she could. Jodi Rimes is such a hasbeen that she has to keep herself relevant by using kids.

    Didn’t Brandi say that she and Jodi Rimes had a truce? It looks like Jodi Rimes didn’t get the memo. So why is Jodi Rimes on twitter manically posting about how she is planning “HER” Gemini’s (Brandi’s son’s and Eddie) birthday parties? Jodi Rimes is such a sick person. She isn’t going to include Brandi in the planning of her own son’s birthday party? Jodi Rimes also claimed that she had a very productive plane ride, which means she paid the paps to take photos of her at the airport.

    Too funny. So to get Eddie to show up on AI, Jodi Rimes had to promise to take him and his friends on another vacation for Eddie’s birthday party. Poor Jodi Rimes.

    Jodi Rimes is STILL milking her failed AI appearance, she was drunk and looked horrible(she had on way too much makeup, her hair was stringy, her clothes were ill fitting, and she just looked off). Today she has the audacity to post a behind the scenes snapchat story. Just how desperate for attention is Jodi Rimes that she rides the coattails of 2 little girls just to keep her name in the headlines? This is so sad.

    Too funny. Eddie must have changed his password over the weekend because Jodi Rimes wasn’t able to crank out a Stepmother’s Day message from his account on Sunday. She had to manically post about it from her account. She must have just figured out his password today because she cranked out a post about wine from his account. We know it’s her posting on Eddie’s because she manically posted about wine from HER account, the photo that “Eddie” posted is the SAME photo that Jodi Rimes posted from HER account, and the excessive use of hashtags.

    Jodi Rimes is still acting like a dog marking it’s territory. Her new thing is manically posting photos of her and her drunk husband on a couch with her feet between his legs as they “read”(today it looks like Eddie wouldn’t let her touch him, so she just sat on the edge of the couch and on top of Eddie’s feet). The last time she manically posted a photo like this, it was to make it look like Eddie spent the entire Stepmother’s Day with his kids and her. Then the next day, we found out that Eddie wasn’t home the entire Stepmother’s Day like Jodi Rimes had led everyone to believe because he was at the ABC Upfronts with Rachel and Jaina! I think it’s funny how Eddie changed his password on Stepmother’s Day, so that Jodi Rimes couldn’t get on his account and write herself a message from his account!

    Jodi Rimes got Eddie extremely drunk yesterday(she posted a photo of Eddie holding a red cup and she bragged about how she was drinking tea, wine, and water) just to get him to participate in the happy couple staged photo-op and snapchat. She posted a photo leaning into Eddie, it was supposed to look like Eddie was kissing the top of her head, but it came out looking like Eddie was smelling her dirty hair. Jodi Rimes also photoshopped the mess out of the photo. She removed all of her wrinkles, but didn’t do anything about Eddie’s wrinkles and crows feet. Since everyone was making fun of how her reading on the couch with Eddie photo looked forced, Jodi Rimes decided to try this.

    I thought that Brandi said that she would be spending holidays with her kids, but once again, Jodi Rimes is on twitter manically bragging about how she excluded Brandi from another one of HER family holidays. She posted a photo of Brandi’s son running in the water while Eddie stands and watches them.

    So how many paps did Jodi Rimes invite to the beach? Where was Kiki because Eddie NEVER goes anywhere alone with Jodi Rimes?

    No wonder Jodi Rimes has been mancially acting like a dog marking it’s territory( bragging about how she is getting Brandi’s kids ready for school and then about how Eddie helped her make candles). Rachel posted a photo of Eddie smiling.

    Jodi Rimes is still acting like a dog peeing on a tree, manically posting about Brandi’s son’s birthday party and how HER MAN is coming back home so that she can love on him. Seriously, who is Jodi Rimes kidding? Eddie is too busy loving on other women to love on her. Eddie hates Jodi Rimes so much that he has to get extremely drunk just to let Jodi Rimes come near him.
