LeAnn Rimes in a Bikini, Because Why Not?

[images removed on request] Dum de dum, LeAnn Rimes getting back to her roots of frolicking on the beach sans most of her clothes. Isn’t life grand, guys?

Also, here’s LeAnn and the ever-present (and more noticeable than ever) Lizzy:

[images removed on request] Lizzy and LeAnn. LeAnn and Lizzy. I guess they’re quite the package after all, huh?

Quotables: LeAnn Rimes Makes Brandi Glanville Want to Barf

Ok Im super excited my kids are moving into a mansion but I want to throw up in my mouth and swallow it- having to hear about it :) … It’s making me a little sick.

Brandi Glanville, from Twitter, on the news that LeAnn Rimes bought a “vacation mansion” in Cabo San Lucas for her and her ill-gotten family (?) to live in.

LeAnn later Tweeted this:

Oh the bulls**t! Laughing.

Will the drama never end, guys? (I’ll answer that for you: I sure as shit hope not.)

So I’m Pretty Sure This Would Be LeAnn Rimes’ “Friend,” “Lizzy”

… Ask and you shall receive, right?

This is Eddie, LeAnn, and Lizzy upon arrival at Cabo San Lucas yesterday after their quick jaunt to Nashville. I’m with commenter ‘Guest’ when I ask, “Why does LeAnn have to bring Lizzy on every trip that she and Eddie take?”

The funny thing is that the couple (Eddie and LeAnn, not Eddie and Lizzy or Lizzy and LeAnn) are in Cabo for a “romantic vacation,” but why bring Lizzy? Is she going to watch Eddie’s children while Eddie and LeAnn do romantic couple things, or is there something more happening here? … Oh. What’s that? The kids aren’t even on this particular leg of the couple’s vacation? Right. I don’t know why Lizzy’s even there, then.

Anyway. Don’t LeAnn and Eddie both look so happy? I know this is the kind of face I’d be wearing if I were about to embark on a fun vacation in sunny, warm Mexico. Duh.

Stars Without Makeup: LeAnn Rimes Probably Got Her Lips Done

Hey, so this is LeAnn Rimes chilling at the airport in Los Angeles as she waits to board a flight to Nashville. I’d say she looks good—and I will, because she does—but even that isn’t really too redeeming, because it is, after all, LeAnn Rimes.

LeAnn and Eddie had custody of Eddie and Brandi’s children for the holidays, and Brandi, whom I’m starting to feel more and more sorry for (even though she’s totally as plastic as they come), Tweeted this:

Nothing worse the (sic) waking up Christmas morning without ur babys :(

I’ve asked before and I’m going to ask again, for the sake of redundancy: who’d you rather—LeAnn or Brandi?

LeAnn Rimes is Scheduled to Have Another Nervous Breakdown Soon, So You Know

From Gossip Cop:

“New Fears for Fragile LeAnn,” blares a sensationalized headline from Life & Style, which claims LeAnn Rimes is “on the verge of a meltdown.”

According to the tabloid, Rimes’ “disastrous” “X Factor” duet with Carly Rose Sonenclar is a telltale sign that she’s “headed down the same path that led her to check into a treatment facility in August for anxiety and stress.”

A supposed “source” tells the mag, “Everyone around LeAnn can see how much she struggles.”

The purported “insider” explains, “She has body issues and worries Eddie [Cibrian] will cheat.”

“Friends and family are constantly worried she’s going to fall apart again if she doesn’t get help,” adds the source.

OK… except that Rimes never “fell apart” in the first place.

The “How Do I Live” singer proactively checked into treatment in order to learn coping mechanisms for emotional issues that a lot of people face. There was no breakdown then, and Rimes is not in a downward spiral now.

Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Rimes and Cibrian, and we’re told that the tab’s “meltdown” tale is “completely fabricated.”

Well, now, hey. To be fair, the first “breakdown” was completely fabricated (and also scheduled—we can’t forget that it was scheduled!). Second, who is this “source” that’s giving information to Gossip Cop? Eddie? LeAnn’s manager? LeAnn herself? Because come on—anyone with half a brain can see that LeAnn’s definitely struggling when it comes to living a normal life, gosh. She can’t even appear on f-cking ‘X-Factor’, which is a joke in itself, without having some kind of scandal emerging from the ashes.

No, I think these breakdown rumors are pretty much spot-on, and even if we don’t exactly see LeAnn having her breakdown, it doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Like, as we speak.

Cue LeAnn Rimes in a Sexy Mrs. Claus Getup in Three … Two … One …

That’s it. There’s really nothing else about Brandi here other than these sexy Christmas pictures, but of course, we do have some more LeAnn stuff to talk about because seriously, never in the world was there anyone who’d rather talk about Brandi Glanville and the Other Real Housewives than LeAnn Rimes. LeAnn Rimes is one of the most important ladies on the planet, and if she won’t let Carly Rose Sonenclar forget that, you can bet your ass that you’re taking something away from the experience, too, like that shit or not.

But anyway, hey—remember that song LeAnn wrote? The song that we talked about a week or so ago, ‘Borrowed’? The one where, you know, she discussed husband-stealing and how she was, of course, the one who was hurt the most by the whole experience? She’s talking about the song (again) and now she’s relating how she and her ill-gotten goods have “hurt” one another, too. Here’s what she said in a recent interview with ‘Extra’:

“I carried that song and that title around with me for about eight months. I was afraid to write it because I knew I had to be incredibly personal. When I did, it was through a lot of tears. I actually was scared to put him in the song, because it does talk about how we both hurt each other. There was a moment where we did have some hurt between the two of us that we had to accept and get over and move forward.”

So do you have all this straight, now, guys? She carried that song and title with her for eight months, and you just have no idea how hard it was for her to not cash in on this affair. What an admirable woman, am I right? She was actually so reticent to earn money from the one thing that’s gotten her the right amount of fame in the last decade that she cried and cried and cried when it was finally released. I just can’t imagine the pain she had to endure throughout this whole process. It’s gut-wrenching, if you ask me.

Don’t know about you guys, but I’d take Brandi and her Joker/fish lips over LeAnn and her myriad psychoses any old day, damn.

LeAnn Rimes Is Really Upset with Us for Ruining Carly Rose’s Special Day

A photo of LeAnn Rimes and Carly Rose

Just imagine, you’re this 13-year-old girl doing this big nationally televised singing competition show. You’re super talented, you’re doing so well, and then, after sticking in the competition for a while, you get the chance to sing one of your favorite singer’s songs. With that singer. And then that famous singer – surprise! – turns out to be a total mess. So you try to do your best and just get through it, and you’re kind of surprised that you have to be the professional one. At 13.

Ugh, this story is just so embarrassing, and it just. Keeps. Going. LeAnn issued that statement yesterday about how she was just “trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song,” when really it was LeAnn’s fourth margarita that was having trouble with the song. But she went ahead and got on Twitter, just to let us know that she never even said that:

In my 18 years of performing, I have never been anything but professional onstage. It is a shame that gossip and lies are overshadowing the performance of Carly, a very talented young girl.

And while I have not given any media outlet a quote, if you want one, here it is “It was an amazing opportunity to share this experience with Carly and I know I’ll be watching for her to win tonight.”

Oh my gosh, can you believe us?! Here we thought that LeAnn messed up Carly Rose’s performance, but it was really us all along! I am so mad at us!

Oh, but TMZ, that media outlet that LeAnn gave the quote to, has made it clear that no, LeAnn really said that. So who can we even believe here*?
