“LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress. While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”
“My wife is the most remarkable and courageous woman I know. I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself. I will be with her every step of the way.”
And finally, here’s what LeAnn herself had to say:
“This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be. All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I’m hoping they’re not going to affect me as much. I’ll have the tools to know how to deal with them.”
She just checked in yesterday, and her rep wants to make sure that everyone knows that this has nothing to do with any sort of eating disorder, because LeAnn definitely doesn’t have one of those.
This is good though, right? We’ve all thought that LeAnn has been sort of unstable for a while now, so it’s nice that she’s going to work on that. Hopefully now she can realize that her creepy and weird and threatening tweets are not the best way to handle things.

So, do we dislike this girl enough that I can come right out and say that she looks like a bag of smashed shit without getting any flak for it? Because even though yesterday was girlfriend’s 30th birthday, I’m going to go ahead and say that she looks like a bag of smashed shit. This, folks, is what happens when you let your smarmy husband dictate your facial and body choices and have a debilitating lack of self-esteem. And when you can’t stop changing your teeth around; that, too.
I want LeAnn to have a happy 30th birthday, really I do, but all I can see is her lion-head in these pictures and I cannot get past it. Seriously, whether it’s the weight loss or some kind of surgery or injectible, she’s starting to resemble the Cowardly Lion (albeit a really skinny Cowardly Lion).
Happy Belated Birthday, LeAnn, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Something else I mean from the bottom of my heart? This:
Here’s what she had to say to her “exclusive members” of the Spitfire Social Club (an all-access group to see LeAnn the way we see her every three days—bikini clad):
Hey everybody! Today has been a great day and we have so much more to come for all of the Spitfire Social Club members. For all of you that signed up today, thank you so much! Below is a little personal thank you video that I shot today. You can see more videos like this in the future by becoming a member of the SSC. Today is the first day of this next chapter and I am so excited to share this time with you all. – Lele
So, OK. Let’s think of things that SSC could stand for OTHER than Spitfire Social Club*. Because that’s way, way lame. How about Sad Sociopathic Cadavers? Scuzzy Social Climbers? There’s just so many choices.
Here’s another little blurb from her site, and I think it’s probably the best of all:
Thursday (Aug. 23) is a big day for LeAnn Rimes, and for her fans. At noon CT, her official website will go into Spitfire mode. Named for her upcoming album, the new site will open up Spitfire Social Club, which Rimes describes as “one very positive, solid place for my fans to go to.” She said she looks forward to having more one-on-one interaction with her hardcore fans, as opposed to Twitter, where you never know who is following you and/or why. “It’s a whole new chapter of my life,” she told me Wednesday night. “I’m leaving a lot stuff behind and moving on. And I think I’m a little bit more open now than I was when I had a fan club in the past.” Fans will be able to read her blogs, get access to concert tickets, and she promises she’ll be sharing more pictures on her own website than she does on Twitter.
“… And she promises she’ll be sharing more pictures on her own website than she does on Twitter.” So does that mean that she’s finally giving up her day job of posting self-portraits on Twitter to … what, post self-portraits of herself on her new website? Because that’s what I’m getting from all of this.
*Not to be a buzzkill or anything, but ‘Spitfire’ is LeAnn’s next album. So you know.
The social media savvy singer got engulfed in a nasty Twitter battle with a follower on Wednesday, after they slammed her for her homewrecking ways – and RadarOnline.comhas the details.
After Laura James mentioned Rimes in a Tweet, noting that she “cheated with Ed & broke up her marriage and his,” the country star immediately rushed to defend herself and her marriage to Eddie Cibrian.
“correction…we broke up our own marriages,” she responded, also stating that “people have nothing better to do than judge something they know nothing about.”
“Well, then u better prove to others what u did was right by staying together so u can get ur fan base back. Otherwise the breakups & your marriage were all for nothing,” James spat back at LeAnn.
“And u might not want to believe this but ur fans hate u & ur career is in the shitter. while Ed smells like a rose through all of this! Hope ya have a prenup bc that is all he wanted is ur money. Good luck to you.”
“excuse me? I have nothing to ‘prove’ we are happy and my fans are wonderful and no one is perfect. All I need to speak to about me and my sins is the good lord,” responded LeAnn.
“Remember you can’t break what’s already broken. I’m not anything like what you read about. It’s all lies and anything you’ve read about no matter who or where it comes from….well, let’s just say its a game for so many to hurt others. Time to move on, everyone else has.”
I agree with LeAnn‘s “we broke up our own marriages” point – she didn’t single-handedly swoop in and destroy all the marriages, it takes two people to cheat and you can only steal someone’s man if you kidnap him – but that doesn’t mean that she and Eddie weren’t assholes for it. But I didn’t want to talk about all that. I wanted to talk specifically about LeAnn.
Is this really where her life is right now? Getting into heated arguments with strangers on Twitter? Didn’t she used to be a big important country singer or something? Oh, that’s right, as the knowledgeable Laura James said on Twitter, LeAnn’s career “is in the shitter.” My, how the thirteen-year-old country superstar has fallen.
OK, so that’s complete crap, because what kind of job would I be doing if I weren’t consistently speculating about the personal and private decisions that celebrities make, whether in the public or private eye? Come on now.
Anyway, this is what LeAnn had to say on her Twitter account earlier yesterday afternoon:
Out of surgery!!!! All is well. My whole face is numb and I’m starving….bad combo. Thx for all your prayers.
So naturally, I was like, hm. Eddie‘s making LeAnn undergo some weird cosmetic surgery in order to make her look like his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville. Or that she was sick of her (second pair of) horse teeth, and she was getting them all pulled and filed down and ready to eat up another set.
But alas, after some investigating, it turns out that LeAnn was having treatment for a root canal gone bad (or so we’re told). And that’s not nearly as fun or intriguing as Eddie’s post-divorce obsession with his ex-wife and her look, or! Better yet! LeAnn’s post-divorce obsession with Eddie’s ex-wife, for that matter.
Whatever. The best part of LeAnn’s entire recent Twitter feed has got to be this, retweeted to all of LeAnn’s followers:
Some folks have a high tolerance for crazy… I, however, am not one of those people
Sometimes you just see the most uncanny shit, you know? Thank God for Twitter. And for LeAnn Rimes, of course.
Does she have her teeth out or something? What’s that? She doesn’t wear dentures? Oh. Could have fooled me. Them there’s some pretty crazy-looking veneers, then.
I mean, what’s going on with her face? Did she swallow a few of those veneers? I don’t know. I just can’t even imagine what’s going on inside that mouth of hers today, guys.
Also, Extra TV recently caught up with LeAnn and Eddie—and since it’s been a whole, like, ten days since we last talked about LeAnn and the Creepiest Birthday Cake of All Time, I figured I’d let you guys in on this little gem of a video. It features LeAnn and her husband talking about just how well they’ve gotten to know one another over the last year of their marriage. Because, you know, they celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary just about eight weeks ago AND THEY’RE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT. Just … just watch the video, OK?
Ugh, Josh Brolin is LeAnn’s celebrity crush. I’m sure he’s feeling really good today, too. And Eddie doesn’t have a celebrity crush? Come on, how coached of an answer is that? LeAnn probably gave him the death stare while he answered that question. I have no doubts that the guy’s ass was clenched like a fist. I don’t know. I tuned out right around that part and started looking at the photo of LeAnn’s teeth again.
Can we get a discussion going on what’s happening with LeAnn’s ever-evolving grill? They’re big, they’re small, they’re white, they’re ultrabrite … I can barely keep up. I HAVE TOOTH FATIGUE.
This past Sunday, poor Eddie Cibrian turned 39. Lucky for him, his loving wife, LeAnn Rimes decided to make the day extra special by getting him a very personalized birthday cake. Would you like to see it?
She posted that photo on Twitter, along with the caption “Eddie’s favorite things bday cake. LOVE there was a Lakers jersey, a Bronco, a paddle board and more!” Apparently Eddie’s list of favorite things also includes banging LeAnn in bed while his two sons just sort of chill and wait to go to the park or whatever. Uh, that’s cool.
It’s just weird that LeAnn would think to do this, you know? Like “oh, it’s my husband’s birthday, and also it’s Father’s Day! We’ll have a party with the kids and everything, so I’ll get a cake! You know what would be cute? A ‘favorite things’ theme! I’ll just go ahead and put us literally in bed together right on the top.” Maybe I’m just a big ol’ prude, but it would never cross my mind to put something like that on a birthday cake that’s for everyone to see.
And here’s another fun picture that she posted on Twitter over the weekend:
The caption for this one? “Just two happy people loving life.” Who is she trying to convince?
