Hold the obvious jokes that are sure to spring to mind when I tell you that LeAnn Rimes has TMJ and frequently pops her jaw out of place, because it’s central to this story. The jaw-popping happened during a concert in Oklahoma on Sunday night.
You see, LeAnn usually comes out to do several songs as part of her encore but she had to abort that mission when her jaw went wacko and she could no longer sing. Judging from some more recent performances, maybe that’s not such a bad thing.
She apologized via Twitter later, as you do, but don’t worry – she’ll be terrorizing our eardrums again in no time, I’m sure!
Oklahoma!!!! I love you so much! I'm sorry for no encore. I had my jaw pop out of place & I can't hear out of my left ear. #tmjsucks
Before she decided to be a cheating harlot, LeAnn Rimes was married to a nice young gent named Dean Sheremet. She then decided she really wanted The D from Eddie Cibrian, he cheated on his wife to give it to her and the rest, as they say, is history. I don’t think LeAnn and Dean have spoken since their divorce, really, but the words they’re exchanging now aren’t all that friendly. Apparently LeAnn retweeted a photo of herself and Sheremet the other day, which the original poster had captioned: “Remember the good old days when @leannrimes was just a chubby country bumpkin married to a gay dude?”
To be fair, I think calling her a “chubby country bumpkin” is more offensive than the gay bit, because as Dean himself later pointed out, being gay isn’t offensive. In any case, LeAnn responded to it with a whole barrel of laughter, which Dean didn’t take too kindly to, and then LeAnn said she was only laughing at herself and then she had to clarify that she’s not homophobic and blah blah, what’s wrong with these people?
It’s been a while since LeAnn Rimes has done anything “newsworthy” (other than that whole Martin Luther King Day fiasco), and I don’t know that this counts, necessarily. However, she was forced to cancel a show in Dublin, Ireland this week after coming down with some coughing spasm that sent her to the hospital.
Never thought I'd see the ER in Dublin. I have coughed myself into pain. The spasm is intense. Being human sucks sometimes.
She’s alright, apparently – her rep later told E! Online that she’s had a viral infection for two weeks and is recovering in her hotel room. She won’t be singing for a little while, which I’m sure everyone is super sad about, right?
In all seriousness, I don’t wish the girl any harm and hope she recovers soon.
Ugh, God, change the record already! We all know Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes don’t get along, but they have to for the sake of Eddie Cibrian‘s kids, blah blah blah. Apparently all hell broke loose again at a restaurant in Malibu on Saturday night when everyone ended up eating there accidentally. You know, because there’s only one place to go in Malibu for dinner. Anyway, the kids apparently went back and forth between Brandi’s table and LeAnn and Eddie’s and things were okay until the end of the night, when shit got ugly. Uglier than LeAnn Rimes and Brandi Glanville put together – ZING!
After managing to avoid each other for most of the night, the new Mr. and Mrs. Cibrian stopped by Brandi’s table on their way out of the restaurant to apparently say goodbye to the kids, who had been criss-crossing from table to table during dinner.
But instead of pleasantries being exchanged, Eddie and LeAnn were “confronted by Brandi who raised her voice and glass of wine at them,” one eyewitness told Radar.
“It was so obnoxious that other people at the restaurant turned their heads to see what all the commotion was about.”
“Is that a hi or a bye,” Brandi yelled at Eddie, 40, and LeAnn, 30, according to another source.
Said the onlooker: “Brandi was holding Jake in her lap when LeAnn and Eddie walked by. It was a very awkward moment and she appeared to cause quite the scene.”
Soon after the incident, the 40-year-old took to Twitter and downplayed the confrontation.
“Just left Nobu Malibu with boys and friends, ran into boy’s dad,” Brandi wrote. “The kids love us all together so lets just stop all the BS.”
Brandi was probably drunk, so it’s whatever, but this whole thing is getting SO OLD. We get it – LeAnn’s a homewrecker and Brandi’s desperate for revenge, Blu Cantrell-style and yet it’s been YEARS and we’re still acting like it’s 2009. Let’s all move on already, damn.
In case you missed it, LeAnn Rimes is going to be on Anger Management playing a love interest for Charlie Sheen, following in the illustrious footsteps of such great, respectable actresses as… Lindsay Lohan. Can’t wait for that! (Why is this piece of shit show still on the air?) In any case, not content to torture our eyeballs just when the episode airs, she’s taken to Twitter to post a photo of herself in lingerie ahead of her appearance. KILL ME NOW.
Here’s the tweet that accompanied the photo, as well her follow-ups throughout the day:
LeAnn Rimes, one half of America’s #4 most hated couple, went to rehab last year, as you probably remember. Everyone sorta figured at the time that it was because she had an eating disorder since she had pretty much gone down to skin and bones, but she swore it was for “emotional issues” or something of the sort, if I remember right.
Anyway, since she’s running out of steam (for now) on the Brandi Glanville post-affair drama, she’s switched to talking about her time in rehab and she wants everyone to know (again): she never had an eating disorder! Yeah, okay.
From The Wendy Williams Show:
“I can honestly say, 100%, I’ve never had a problem with eating. Trust me.”
She added: “It was just stress, I mean I was really going through anxiety and stress and depression. That’s what I was going through. It was just my body’s way of dealing with it.”
Well, yeah, but anxiety and stress and depression can trigger an eating disorder. Not that I’m in a place to medically diagnose someone I’ve never met with something so serious, but that shit looked dangerous, not simply a little “I’m too busy to remember to eat lunch” problem.
Anyhoo, here’s hoping she go her shit together – she looks a lot better these days. You can watch her interview below if you feel like it.
