5LeAnn Rimes Goes to Target Practice

In what is possibly the most terrifying news of the year, LeAnn Rimes has taken an interest in guns, and not a week after we learned that she was considering getting a restraining order against her husband’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville. Because, of course, Brandi is the one we have to worry about here. Brandi is the one who made very real threats to LeAnn, and Brandi is so obviously the one who is mentally unstable. Right?

Nah, you guys know that LeAnn is out of her mind. She has no business messing with guns, especially not when this is clearly another publicity stunt. I don’t know if she’s trying to intimidate Brandi with some weird kind of “look what I can do” routine at the shooting range or if she genuinely believes that Brandi wants to do her harm, but either way, somebody needs to take the guns away from her.

Just to strike some more fear into your hearts, here’s a picture of LeAnn with an actual gun:

And an even bigger actual gun:

LeAnn posted these pictures on Twitter, natch, with captions like “I used to go shopping on a day off, now I go shooting!” and “bang bang…..” But for sure, she’s the one who needs the restraining order.

7LeAnn Rimes is Thinking About a Restraining Order Against Brandi Glanville

From Celebuzz:

LeAnn Rimes is said to be ‘haunted’ at Brandi Glanville’s “I am going to kill you” threat, Celebuzz has exclusively learned.

We can also reveal that Glanville, a star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, made other threats so serious that Rimes, married to Glanville’s ex-husband Eddie Cibrian, seriously considered asking a Los Angeles court to issue a restraining order against her.

“Brandi has told LeAnn to her face multiple times that she would kill her if she could,” a source close to the situation told Celebuzz.

“LeAnn is scared of Brandi and believes she is unstable. LeAnn’s own mother is concerned for her daughter’s safety too and regularly calls her to tell her so.”

Should LeAnn be scared for her safety?

In an interview with Australia’s NW magazine, Glanville, 39, recalled how she flew into a rage the first time she saw the singer, 29, at her son’s soccer game with ex husband Cibrian, 38.

“I remember walking up to soccer practice and there she was with my baby in her lap,” Brandi said.

“My blood was boiling, and I thought I was going to kill her. I really thought I was going to physically hurt her.

“But that was the first time I saw her that way – she was sitting in my soccer chair, under my tent, she’s got my kid on her lap and she’s with my husband, and that was that little moment of total irrational fury.”

Despite taking to Twitter Monday to declare “the articles online are incorrect,” Celebuzz can reveal this isn’t the first time that the reality star has gone public with the brash murder confessions.

Why does this not surprise me? Don’t get me wrong, though—I certainly don’t believe it. I don’t actually believe any of it, especially not after we received confirmation that LeAnn Rimes does absolutely everything for publicity and fame. She’s like this girl I knew in high school who’d carry around a bag of Tylenol (that had the ‘Tylenol’ emblems filed off so that they appeared to be blank from a distance) and she’d “accidentally” leave her backpack open at slumber parties because all she really wanted was eyes on her at all times.

No, I’m completely positive that all of this murdering- and restraining-order-stuff has nothing to do with the fact that LeAnn and Brandi are both dried-up hasbeens (even though LeAnn’s got a leg-up on Brandi since Brandi‘s actually a never-hasbeen) and all to do with the fact that someone was paid copious amounts of money to leak stories to media outlets about the volatile relationship between Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes. Because come on. Give me a f-cking break already with this crap.

6LeAnn Rimes Wants A Pet Pig

A photo of LeAnn Rimes

From People:

With their wedding vows recently renewed, LeAnn Rimes thinks she and her husband Eddie Cibrian are ready for another commitment – pig parenthood.

“Quote of the day…. ‘pigs are not stupid’ Trying to convince Eddie to get a mini pig. I want one,” the singer Tweeted on Monday.

While her husband may be opposed to the new pet, LeAnn got a little encouragement from a friend with experience.

“Here’s ours but [it] didn’t stay mini,” Tori Spelling Tweeted, with a photo of her pig Hank.

The sweet photo seemed to make the singer even more excited about mini-pig motherhood. “Adorable!!!!!” she wrote. “How much does he/she weigh?”

This, by the way, is Tori Spelling‘s pig:

I don’t even know where to start, you guys. LeAnn Rimes is a piece of work, she truly is. Doesn’t she know that she already has a pet pig? His name is Eddie Cibrian. HEY-OH!

1LeAnn Rimes Definitely Stages Photo Ops, in Case You Happened to Think Maybe Otherwise for Whatever Reason

From FOX News:

Like clockwork new shots of Rimes frolicking on a new beach in a new bikini appear in celebrities weeklies and web sites.
Here she is in Maui; there she is in Mexico; here she is in Malibu. If there’s a beach, there’s a good likelihood Rimes will be on it in a teeny weeny bikini.

Now some industry insiders are speculating that these pics aren’t paparazzi shots at all, but that Rimes is tipping off the photographers to stage the shots, and maybe even getting a piece of the action for herself.

The most recent pictures of Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian looking picture perfect on a beach in Cabo San Lucas raised the eyebrows of one skeptical photo editor.

“Those photographs came into all the magazines and websites fully captioned and saying, ‘LeeAnn Rimes on a trip to renew her vows.’ There is no vow renewing in those pictures,” the industry insider told us. “There is no way the paps would have known she was doing that unless she specifically told them.”

“Plus the paps just don’t get access like that in Cabo,” the editor added. “They can’t get close enough to the celebrities without permission to get the quality of those photos. They were right next to her. There was no long lens. This was not intrusive in any way. This was a photo shoot.”

Pics like these demonstrate a truth long known in the magazine industry but hidden from consumers—celebrities are often in cahoots with the paparazzi.

“There are many celebrities who do everything possible to stay out of the paparazzi’s range yet many others use these photographers as their one-way ticket into glossy magazines. More behind the scenes deals are brokered between photographers and stars than most people think,” explained Dorothy Cascerceri, Senior Editor and television correspondent for In Touch Weekly magazine. “Sometimes celebs allow photo agencies to license their personal photos and other times they contact photo agencies before leaving the house so shutterbugs can snap them taking a ‘casual afternoon stroll.’ Attention-starved C- and D-listers are most well known for tipping off agencies. The paparazzi are as much puppets to some celebs as they are nuisances to others.”

Insiders said there is a possibility that Rimes is making money off her photos, even though it wouldn’t be big time cash. “We see her in a bikini all the time. There is nothing news worthy about LeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach so it isn’t a big money shot,” an editor told us.“It is the equivalent of Jennifer Garner walking down the street with a coffee or maybe just a little bit more. I would say they sell to magazines for $1,000 and to websites for $100 a piece.”

But if those pictures are purchased by 10 magazines around the world and a hundred websites, that is still a nice chunk of change. But perhaps more than the money, such shots help to bolster Rimes’ somewhat tarnished brand which took a hit when she first hooked up with Cibrian while he was married to ‘Beverly Hills Real Housewife’ Brandi Glanville.

“Her story is defined as being the girl who hooked up with her co-star when they were both married and and she stole this woman’s husband. When you see her frolicking around in the sun it sends the signal this is real relationship just like yours. Maybe it was weird how they got together but now they are just like you,” an editor told us. “There is nothing news worthy about LeeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach but it is another reminder to anyone who will pay attention that she is happy and skinny and still married.”

Rimes did not respond to our request for comment.

I so believe this. Not only because, YEAH, it’s LeAnn Rimes for crying out loud, but because one of our photo agencies totally loves to try and whack us with these outrageously exorbitant fees for using a lot of craptastic LeAnn Rimes photos and trying to make it legal by calling them “exclusive,” even though there’s f-cking nothing “exclusive” about LeAnn Rimes walking her ass to her car after getting a damn coffee. Exclusive? As in “we’re gonna charge you a grand if you even accidentally LOOK at this photo, let alone use it”? Bitches, please.

Also, LeAnn Rimes is pretty foolish. I mean, what’s going to happen when everybody catches on to the fact that she’s not doing a whole lot of impressing these days, and the fact that she’s only paying people to take her damn picture to get her on websites like our own is just … well it’s sad. And it’s a waste of money, because at the end of the day, no one’s going to be all like, “Damn! Remember LeAnn Rimes? Whatever happened to her?” only to hear the response, “She filed Chapter 7 or 11 or both of them whatever she qualifies for as her own personal business entity ages ago, ’cause she spent all of her money paying to have her picture taken. Word.”

And that’s definitely how I see this panning out.

3Of Course There’s a Photo From LeAnn and Eddie’s Vow Renewal Ceremony

photo of leann and eddie cibrian pictures photos
Did you guys know that these two asshats renewed their wedding vows on their one-year anniversary? Because they did. And while it might be cute for another couple to do it on their one-year anniversary (say, a couple like Michelle Williams and Jason Segel), it’s not all that cute, because we’re talking about Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes here. The thing is, this was one of LeAnn’s TwitPics. Do you know what kind of TwitPics girlfriend normally sends out? Because it’s these. It’s always these, with Eddie and kissy-faces and LURVE and big teeth … I could go on and on, really.

I don’t know. I just can’t look at this anymore. I’m going to head over to our friends at Celebslam, where they’ve compiled the Hottest Twitpics of April. I will park myself there for the remainder of the evening. At least there I can look at people like Miranda Kerr. And you should, too.

7LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Renewed Their Vows

A photo of Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes

I should have known that LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian would be the kind of couple to renew their vows every single year. I guess I just didn’t think about it, because of course LeAnn would want the extra attention. I believe she was fond of renewing her vows with her old husband, Dean Sheremet, as well, and I’m sure she’ll enjoy renewing her vows with the husband she takes after Eddie, too. She’s a romantic!

From E! Online:

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrianare still celebrating their first wedding anniversary…one week later.

The duo, who commemorated their first official year together as husband and wife with a weekend getaway to Calabasas, Calif., last week, continued the festivities Friday when they said their I-dos once more.

“Renewed our vows today….it’s incredible to thank each other for the past year as husband and wife,” Rimes tweeted Friday. “Here’s to another great year!”

The couple, who wed April 22 of last year, spent more time relaxing near the ocean this weekend, with Rimes tweeting Thursday, “CHILLING….listening to Radiohead and enjoying the view…man and beach :).”

Saturday, the Twitter-loving country singer shared more details with followers, writing, “Eddie and I went climbing on the rocks in the ocean yesterday to see the thousands of crabs. I did not realize til now just how dab I kicked a rock with two of my toes…OUCH.”

Prior to Rimes and Cibrian’s vow renewal, the couple surprised each other with anniversary gifts, with Rimes gifting Cibrian with a new watch, and Cibrian surprising his wife with a huge ring.

That huge ring, by the way:

But this is kind of sweet, right? Maybe a little? I think a couple renewing their wedding vows can be really sweet and special. Take Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, for instance, who renew their wedding vows every year (their last ceremony was on Friday too!). I think it’s clear that they truly love each other, and I think it’s lovely that they celebrate that every year. But then again, Heidi Klum and Seal were also known for doing the same thing, and look what happened to them. There always seems to be some suspicions about couples who feel the need to have a ceremony every single year, and I don’t know if I agree with that. However, I definitely wouldn’t bet on LeAnn and Eddie being in it for the long haul.

But what do you think?
