LeAnn Rimes recently insisted that she was done apologising for having an affair with Eddie Cibrian a few years back, but instead of letting sleeping dogs lie and trying to move on with her life, she’s pretty much written an entire album of songs about Brandi Glanville and is talking about it in interviews again. God help us all.
Little LeAnn told US Weekly that she was so distraught over the whole affair that she felt “disgusted” with herself about it – though of course, she didn’t feel bad enough to f-cking stop, so talk to the hand.
“I think I opened up the can of worms for myself by writing this record,” she tells Us. “There were a lot of things I didn’t even realize I was feeling…I needed to go somewhere and really process all of that stuff.”
“That stuff,” of course, includes the fallout from her affair with now-husband Cibrian. After Us Weekly broke the news of the Northern Lights costars’ tryst, Rimes hit bottom.
“I was feeling all these crazy emotions and feeling terrible about myself and was disgusted by myself and thought I was pathetic,” she says. (In fact, she uses some of those very words in songs on her new album. “Borrowed,” for example, looks into the darker moments of falling in love with a married man and includes lyrics like, “I don’t want to give you back.”)
Oh, brother. Just shut up already.
In what may be the strangest Twitter exchange in ages, Courtney Love has risen from her drug tomb to stick up for LeAnn Rimes after she got into another spat with Brandi Glanville. Here’s how it went down, Brandi complained via a tweet that she couldn’t get a hold of her kids, so LeAnn responded with some hippie bullshit and then Courtney piped up out of nowhere offering to whoop somebody’s ass if they didn’t leave her alone. Oh, and Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20 got in on the action. Yeah, I don’t know, either.
First of all, props to LeAnn for using a spat with Brandi to promote new music… which will invariably suck, but can’t knock the hustle. Second of all, da fuck, Rob Thomas? Where the hell did you even come from? What are you doing, man? Third of all, Courtney Love is a queen and was probably high off her ass writing this, but I love her anyway. The end.
LeAnn Rimes is a Sriracha hot mess, isn’t she? She landed herself a lovely spot on the Top 20 Most Hated Celebrities List so it makes total sense that she would have to buy twitter followers. That’s what Gossip Girl is suggesting:
Turns out LeAnn’s Twitter follower number was dropping on Friday and then in the course of 17 hours between yesterday and today, she gained more than 16,000 new fans (most of which have 0-3 tweets total). Twitter users are speculating that she paid one of the many companies out there which give you fake followers (and some can even give you fake RTs!)
Again, not being sarcastic, it makes sense — Ms. Rimes is not a well-liked celebrity at the moment. And for the past several moments. Years. There. I was puzzled as to why Justin Bieber needed to buy twitter followers, but now that he’s turning into such a little twit (and also joining Rimes on the list), I’ll believe it.
Rimes is creeping up on half a million twitter followers. Her twitter feed is full of wonderful interesting tweets like, “SoHo House dinner was o-mazing! Can we say sweats now anyone?!” and “Who the HELL taught our cab driver how to drive???? Dude, you don’t pump the breaks to stop!!!
#vomit” as well as retweets from fans.
Earlier in the week she tweeted,
Quote of the day from Jie who blew my hair out this evening “No drama no life” I died laughing at that one
Ha ha ha ha ha ha omg LeAnn, you so went there!
Chris Brown is a hated celebrity but apparently not as much as Anne Hathaway (which James Franco totally gets, btw). Star magazine released their super scientific list of top 20 most hated Hollywood celebrities. Weirdly Jay Leno is more hated than Chris Brown, which is making me laugh really hard. Here’s the stupid list:
20. Chris Brown
19. Jesse James
18. Taylor Swift
17. Shia LaBeouf
16. Lindsay Lohan
15. Angelina Jolie
14. Jay Leno
13. Ashton Kutcher
12. LeAnn Rimes
10 and 11. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian
9. Anne Hathaway
8. Justin Bieber
6. Matt Lauer
5. Katherine Heigl
4. John Mayer
3. Jennifer Lopez
2. Kristen Stewart
1. Gwyneth Paltrow
This is a pretty good list. I’m shocked to see that Kanye West isn’t on here. I love him but I thought he was one of the most hated people around. I’m not sure if he’s psyched or pissed not to be included. I also didn’t realize that people hated Matt Lauer this much. Damn. Too bad this poll was taken after Justin Bieber’s idiotic Anne Frank statement or I’m sure he would be higher up. Kristen Stewart now has the dubious honor of being one of the most hated and least attractive female celebrities. Hey, good for her! At least she’s good at stuff!
Who is your ultimate most hated celebrity?
Here’s something that will shock you: Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes don’t get along. They never have, they never will, nothing will ever change. There are no new developments in their relationship, nothing new has happened… and yet they’re both still talking about it. You’d think, after LeAnn made a final “I’m done apologizing!” statement last month that she was finally ready to move on with her life, but you’d be wrong, because she’s got more to say and it’s something you’ve never heard before (kidding, you’ve totally heard it a million times).
Eddie’s ex-wife, Brandi, has been pretty vocal about her feelings for you. What’s your relationship like now?
That’s where you write “insert face reaction here”.
Eek… That doesn’t sound good.
It’s been really difficult. You have to stand up for yourself and be your own person, but at the same time you have to protect these children and their hearts. And that’s a very tough balance.
Do you have any regrets?
I don’t like that word. Do I wish I handled it differently? Absolutely. No one wants to hurt anyone or put themselves through hurt. I think the only other thing we could’ve done would have been to get out of our marriages before anything happened. It was tough, and it all happened very fast. I felt so ashamed and guilty.
God, we get it. And why are people still asking about this like some new revelation is going to come to light? Just make it stop. At least Brandi seems preoccupied at the moment with her one-time fling with Gerard Butler, even though he didn’t even remember her name.
Poor, poor LeAnn Rimes. All she does is get bullied and shit upon and no one will leave her alone. Well, guess what! She’s not having it anymore. No sir, she won’t apologise and feel bad for breaking up a family and being a total prick about it. No more! The phoenix will rise from the ashes once more!
Did you feel a need to explain yourself?
You’ve done a lot of frank US TV interviews recently… Yes. People have been judging me, so I felt a need to explain and apologise, which I’ve done many times. Now I no longer feel that need. I’m happy and happily married and have a wonderful family. I’m living life as best I can – but I’m not exempt from failure and making bad choices.
You’ve been written about extensively in the US tabloids for three years since you got together with your husband. Has the coverage worn you down?
It has been an ongoing story for them. At least I sell magazines for them – I guess that’s the positive – but it’s involved some very wrong information. Sometimes I comment on it, sometimes I don’t. They’re going to write what they want to write anyway. I just read I bathe in Evian water – some of the stories are so insane. I try to let it roll off my back but it’s gone on for a long time. I have a talent, I can sing. I don’t earn my money from trying to hurt people or get in the tabloids.
Girl, we know you don’t bathe in Evian because that shit is expensive and you’re broke enough to need to sue your dentist over those chicklet teeth of yours. Second of all, you know you love every second of the press you get for Eddie and Brandi – otherwise, your ass would’ve been out of the news years ago and stayed there for good, because God knows that voice (which was average at best to begin with) is not what it once was. You need to sit down.
Brandi Glanville can’t seem to keep her trap shut about all things LeAnn Rimes/Eddie Cibrian, so much so that she actually pulled a Blu Cantrell and got her vagina re-done (WHY) on Eddie’s dime and then wrote a book about all the f-ckery surrounding that relationship to make more bank. Gotta give homegirl her Shrewd Businesswoman patch on that one.
In any case, Brandi’s book is a whole hot mess of unnecessary nonsense and never should have been released. It was released, though, and even better than that, it may now be made into a script and acted out by real, live actors. Brandi broke the news on Twitter on Monday:
Lifetime is probably the only network desperate enough to buy this crap, but also, you have to admit that Lifetime makes those amazing Made-For-TV movies that are so bad, they circle back ’round to being really good again. I mean, I grew up in the In The Best Interest of the Children days and it was my jam – it’s only got better since then. Come on – Sexting in Suburbia? Instant classic. Mom at 16 was a classic, as well.
Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s get this movie made, stat.
