LeAnn Rimes Looks … Different

And it’s not just the cat ears, guys.

So yeah. “Rehab,” huh? Are we sure we didn’t do a little housekeeping while away? A little facial-freshening? Because something definitely, definitely looks quite different, and I just can’t put my finger on what it is.

Thoughts? Is LeAnn tidying up on the DL? Am I even allowed to say “DL” anymore, or has that become passé?

Oh, You Mean You Didn’t Know LeAnn Rimes Was Still Not Back in Rehab?

Because even though all of the things I’m hearing about are “post-rehab,” last I heard, she was checking herself into rehab on September 1st, and planned to stay for thirty days. Now, today’s the twenty-second, and she was out on a tour break for a few days somewhere between the first and today, so thirty days of BIG, INTENSIVE TREATMENT? Somehow I seriously doubt that happened. Unless she discovered an old DeLorean and a case of plutonium, to boot.

If you remember, LeAnn checked herself into rehab to recenter herself, and sources say that she did it to learn “new coping mechanisms,” which sounds like a bunch of sugared-up, flowery BS to me. From Us Weekly:

After Rimes decided to get help, her rep told Us Weekly she was in treatment to “learn and develop coping mechanisms” for stressful situations. But a source close to Rimes and her husband, Eddie Cibrian, told Us, “LeAnn has had major insecurity issues since she first got together with Eddie [in 2009].” At the time, Cibrian was still married to Brandi Glanville and Rimes was still married to chef Dean Sheremet.

“She’s been stressed about always being called a home-wrecker and also worried that Eddie is cheating on her,” the insider explained. “She’s been on a downward spiral.”

I don’t know, guys. I think we still have a pretty sick girl here on our hands, and boppin’ in and out of rehab for emotional counseling just isn’t going to cut it when it comes to receiving the treatment that she really, really needs.

Welcome … back?

Brandi Glanville Wants to Keep LeAnn Rimes in Rehab FOREVER

So we’re all aware that LeAnn Rimes went to rehab, yes? I mean, aside from leaving a week in to play a circuit of shows in the Midwest, LeAnn’s totally committed to getting well, and working out her debilitating self-esteem and trust issues, right? Well because Brandi Glanville, LeAnn’s husband‘s ex-wife, is doing her part to make sure that LeAnn stays in the clinic for as long as possible. What’s she doing, you might ask? Well, this. On Twitter:

I’m NOT cheating with. Y ex husband I would never do that #EWWWWWW

Which, of course, translates into “I’m NOT cheating with. Y ex husband I would never do that but I want LeAnn to think it’s a possibility so it might drive her even crazier, beyotches. #BURRRRRRRRRRRRRRN.

Earlier in the week, Brandi claimed that she was in LeAnn’s rehab corner, saying that it’s best that a delusional, paranoid woman stays far, far away from her children:

“I totally support LeAnn’s decision to enter rehab. My top priority is my children and at the end of the day we are a family. LeAnn is their stepmom, and they love her. I am wishing her all the best and I hope she will find what she is looking for while in rehab.”

Which also means what I said up there, plus the fact that she’s worried about the danger an unstable woman might pose in her children’s lives. Which is probably why she, herself, doesn’t hang out with those kids much, anyway.

Good lookin’ out, Brandi!
