2LeAnn Couldn’t Stay Away From Twitter For More Than a Week, You Guys

That’s pretty bad.  I mean, it might not mean much coming from me, as I check my Twitter intermittently and only use it to stalk John Cusack, but come on, LeAnn.  A week?

Last week, LeAnn told the public that she was taking a break from Twitter, because she couldn’t hack the scrutiny that a homewrecking celebrity with a Twitter account is sometimes subjected to:

“taking a break from twitter for a while…It’s unhealthy for me and my family to have to read negative comments from people who’s [sic] opinions have no bearing on my life.”

But though she wants to be emotionally healthy and spiritually rich, she’s back at the keyboard again, assailing her followers with affection for those who admire her:

“Hi twitter land! Miss u all and thought I’d just say hello! I have so many darling fans and want you all to know how much u r appreciated…Hugs to all! Can’t stay away for too long :)”

Yeah. I was totally heartbroken … for that week … that I couldn’t be subjected to LeAnn fighting with her followers over kissing co-cheater Eddie Cibrian in public. I just knew there was something missing from my life, though I wasn’t sure what it was at the time.

All is right with the world today.

43Brandi Glanville is Still Publicly Pissed at Eddie Cibrian and Leann Rimes

Though the divorce hasn’t even been finalized, it hasn’t stopped Eddie Cibrian’s estranged wife from continually speaking out about her husband’s affair with country star, Leann Rimes. Brandi’s latest interview emerges from the depths of In Touch, where she calls Eddie and Leann both cheaters. Again. She also insinuates that they both need professional help, but she wants to be friends with the new couple, too:

“They’re both cheaters,” Eddie Cibrian’s soon-to-be-ex, Brandi Glanville, tells In Touch exclusively. “I hope he gets help, but if he’s a cheater, he’s going to cheat forever.”

When Eddie Cibrian left his wife, Brandi Glanville, for singer Leann Rimes, it took her a long time to forgive. But she’ll never forget what he did to her — and thinks Leann shouldn’t, either.

“I don’t know how she deals with it, that he was lying to both of us,” Brandi, 36, tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. Brandi, who still lived with her husband for three months after his affair was exposed, adds that until the scandal broke, “there was no lull in our sex life.”

“They’re both cheaters,” she says. “I hope he gets help, but if he’s a cheater, he’s going to cheat forever. The great thing is, it doesn’t affect me anymore. I’m done.”

Indeed, though Brandi has definitely moved on and has a new boyfriend, she’s confident that she and her ex can have a civil relationship.

“I know Eddie loves me — I’m the mother of his children. But it’s a different kind of love now,” she says. “I do have resentment toward him, but I still wish him well. I hope we can all be friends one day, to be honest.”

What do you think? Will this unlikely trio be sitting down for anything more than a good, old-fashioned hair-pulling anytime soon?

… Nah, me either.

13Damn, LeAnn

These photos were snapped of LeAnn Rimes — the quasi-kind-of-not-really-Hester Prynne formerly known as a country singer — in a two-piece a few days ago and I have to say: she looks way more amazing than I’ve ever given her credit for.

I mean, remember when she was just a young, chubbed-out adolescent with a funky-looking grill? Now she’s an older, full-blown hottie-fab-body, with an almost normal looking grill.

You go, girl!

Look out wives of husbands that dig Lifetime movies and country music … LeAnn’s on her way, and no marital vows are gonna stop the itch to twitch all over that fine-assed bod.

19The Chick That Beet Wants to Beat is Going Naked For TV

Emmy Rossum, better known as the girl who stole Adam Duritz away from our very own Evil Beet, is starring in a new, up-and-coming Showtime series called Shameless.

Rossum, who I most vividly remember from The Day After Tomorrow — since, you know, it’s on the goddamned television every three days like clockwork — was most recently linked to Counting Crows frontman, Adam Duritz, and claims that she wants to get into the “artsy” side of acting. Read: her movies have pretty much bombed (with the exception of Phantom of the Opera, of course), not a lot of people know who she is, Broadway doesn’t want her and if this Showtime thing doesn’t work, Lifetime’s next on the slate. And you see what Lifetime did for Leann Rimes’ career. Ahem.

Rossum also has a very Enya-esque musical project under her proverbial belt — she’ll be taking her real one off (and much, much more) in the upcoming season of Shameless.

Oh, and just because it’s that ridiculous, I’ve embedded a video for Rossum’s “hit” song, “Falling.” And if any of you say that the song — or the video — is genuis, I’m going to go all biological warfare and bitch-slap you with Snooki’s half-eaten, herp-infested pickle.

113Leann Rimes is Totally OK With Helping to Break Up Two Marriages

As long as she directly benefits from the result, clearly, it’s all good.

Rimes speaks out to People magazine about the heat surrounding her and Eddie Cibrian, the man who some say was “lured away” by the wiles and charms of the woman — the legend! — Leann Rimes. She claims that she’s remorseful about pulling Eddie away from what was oh-so-clearly a bad relationship, but feels happy and optimistic about the snafu’s general outcome:

“I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else … I take responsibility for everything I’ve done. I hate that people got hurt,” says Rimes. “But I don’t regret the outcome.”

Of course you don’t, Leann. It’s the best thing that’s happened to your career since a shitload of your songs were used on Coyote Ugly all those years ago. This is the most publicity you’ve gotten in eons, girl. So, yeah. Go ahead and own it. It’s not like you have a whole lot else to do these days, between filming your Lifetime movies and waiting three years to release new albums or whatever.

Rimes continues on, discussing how emotionally-charged and spiritually-driven the beginnings of her affair was with Cibrian:

“It was very emotionally driven. I never once thought what I was doing was okay.”

But clearly, it all worked out in the end. Cibrian and Rimes ended up doing that whole happily-ever-after thing, Rimes’ ex-husband Dean Sheremet (you know, the non-gay gay one) is supposedly dating a decoy woman by the name of Sarah Silver, who happens to be some kind of bigwig NYC photographer or whatever and Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, well … she’s still just as crazy.

See? Not much has been turned upside down, nothing has truly changed all that much, and life obviously does go on.

So shut the fuck up about it, Leann Rimes. We’ve totally heard enough. Go be smitten and schmoopy, while tastefully subdued and solemn, all over some other country’s media.

123That Homewrecker and That Nobody Are Still Together

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are still together it appears. The two were photographed making their way through an airport together this morning. Traveling together! Nice! I hope that LeAnn is pleased knowing that she’s been able to hold down the man she stole from his wife for over six months. That’s a sign that Eddie’s going to wait it out before he does the same to her. How romantic pathetic.
