LeAnn Rimes Just Wants You to Get Off Her Back

She did things, ok? Things that you might not think are too great. Sure, she and Eddie Cibrian homewrecked their way to a brand new marriage, but she’s sorry. She knows that she hurt people. So can you please just stop talking about it now?

This is the gist of this new interview LeAnn did, which – you’ll love this – is part of a special that’s going to be airing on E! called E! Special: LeAnn Rimes. But I’ll go ahead and give you specific quotes anyway.

On regret: “I don’t like the word regret. I wish I handled it differently because I wish I could have been better for me, for Brandi, for Dean, for Eddie, for everyone else. I know, in this situation, it’s going to take some time. All I wish is that everyone that was hurt, that we hurt, that I hurt, can be happy.”

On her “stay” in “rehab”: “When you look around and you go ‘I’m crying, like, uncontrollably, no one can help me,’  that’s when I knew I had to seek help…I was incredibly depressed and not quite sure of who I was.”

On all us meanies: “People are so quick to judge and make decisions for themselves about situations they know absolutely nothing about.”

LeAnn also said that “no one will ever understand how much thought and hurt were put into our decision,” speaking about the affair, and even Eddie popped in to say this:

“My heart goes out to her every single time she’s getting bashed for something. It’s unfair for her and it’s unfair for us. [The affair] wasn’t frivolous, you know.”

Whatever, guys. Team Brandi.

  • I kind of want *you* to get off her back. Not because I like her or think that she doesn’t deserve all the negativity she gets, but because I’m sick and tired of how many Leann posts are on this site.

      • I agree. Leann may be obnoxious but at least she owns up to the fact that she hurt people. Lindsay doesn’t own up to anything. Ever.

      • Yes, I feel that way about Lindsay Lohan, too. I’m just not interested in either of them any more. Although at least Lindsay’s a bona fide train wreck. Leann’s just pathetic.

  • This is what the media should be asking:

    Leann plays every aspect of her life out in the public’s eye and then when she doesn’t get the positive praise, she whines about how unfair it is that she is being judged.

    Why would E give Leann Rimes a special interview when other than famewhoring/exploiting Brandi’s kids/parading around in bikini’s/taunting Brandi, career wise she hasn’t done anything to deserve it?Aren’t these type of interviews reserved for artists who are excelling in their careers, like Adele, Taylor S, or Beyonce? It comes across like E is rewarding Leann for her bad behavior. Leann must be blackmailing someone at E because how did she get a special when her career is in the toilet? E might as well just give Courtney and Doug a special too because what’s the difference between Courtyney and Doug and Leann and Eddie?

    Actions speak louder than words. In this interview Leann says that she wants Brandi to be happy and that she is sorry for the pain caused by her affair, but then why does she continue to provoke Brandi by tweeting about her kids, posting videos and photos of them to her twitter page and website, setting up staged photo-ops with the kids, making passive aggressive digs at Brandi, egging her fans on to attacking Brandi(Did you see the attack Leann’s friend Madison H made yesterday on Brandi?), and calling the kids “my boys” after being asked by her own fans and their mother to stop?

    This is the same interview that she gave to GAC, Shape, People magazine, and ABC. It’s a script, a publicity stunt to promote her album and single release. You would think by now that the media would be aware of this, but it never fails they fall for it everytime. Her Katie interview got slammed, so badly that In Touch took notice and wrote about how people thought she was faking. We can tell whether or not Leann is sincere/remorseful in this E interview by what she does after the interview. Since she spent all of yesterday taking digs at Brandi and the photos and videos of Brandi’s kids are still up on her fan website/twitter, we know that this interview is big farce. If she truly wants people to believe that she has changed she would remove the photos and videos of Brandi’s kids and stop using the kids to taunt their mother.

  • This is what the media should be asking:

    After her fans questioned why Eddie never publicly defends her, we get this interview where Eddie openly states how concerned he is that his wife gets bashed? What couple takes cues on how to be a couple from their fans? The disturbing aspect. Eddie is a hypocrite. What was the point in allowing Leann and Darrell to write those emails telling Brandi to shut up and stop talking about them or Leann’s rep telling ROL that it’s Brandi who keeps all this in the press, when Eddie and Leann were going to do this tell all interview and invite the media into their home? And then people wonder why Brandi is so vocal and goes public.

    Leann was in “rehab” for 2 weeks, not 30 days. If Leann can’t even be honest about how many days she really spent in “rehab”, then why would anyone believe her when she says that she wants Brandi to be happy or she is sorry for what she did? Why isn’t anyone willing to address the elephant in the room? “Rehab” didn’t help Leann, she is still doing the very same things we witnessed before her stint in rehab and last year. I wonder if “rehab” was really a fertility clinic or plastic surgery.

    A cheating husband trying to turn her into his ex-wife would be one reason for those crying spells. Again, what she says in this interview is greatly contradicted by her tweets. Everytime she had one of these crying spells, she took to twitter. When her fans asked her if something bad happened, she told them she was crying because she was happy and blessed.

    Leann has to bribe Eddie or load him with alcohol just to get him to play the devoted husband. She tweeted that she gave Eddie his Christmas present early because she is so excited about Christmas. Wrong. She gave Eddie his “Christmas” present early because that was his payment for doing the interview and allowing her to play around on his email account. Why is Eddie so materialistic? He sold out his kids and his ex-wife for another toy from Leann.

  • “…don’t know anything about…” Is that ugly little cracked out country doofuss for real? She tweets, emails and all but sky writes her every little fart!!!! So, sorry, twat, but YOU made yourself our business!
