By now you’ve probably caught LeAnn Rimes’ strange “X-Factor” duet with Carly Rose Sonenclar. To me, she just sounded like she was trying to out-sing a 13-year-old who’s more talented than her. And she did it in a very Jenna Maroney from “30 Rock” sort of way. Julie calls the sound that was coming out of her face “warbling.” I’m stealing that. Other people thought she seemed drunk. Rimes deflected the drunk allegations and made Sonenclar look bad in one fell swoop claiming that she was trying to help the “nervous” girl. Likely story. And sadly, Soneclar didn’t win, possibly due to Rimes’ warbling spotlight-stealing. [The Hollywood Gossip]

Sometimes life imitates TV — and not in a good way. In a bombastic, ridiculous, I-can’t-believe-I’m-watching-this way.
Take LeAnn Rimes performing on “The X-Factor” Wednesday night with finalist Carly Rose Sonenclar. Rimes pulls a total Jenna Maroney (from “30 Rock”), and attempts to upstage a child, just like Maroney did on the fictional singing show “America’s Kidz Got Singing.” Except LeAnn is a real person. Or, like, a sort of real person. Don’t believe us? Check out this clip of Maroney dueting with a blonde moppet on “30 Rock” earlier this year, after the jump!

National treasure Judge Judy hit up “The View” this morning. I barely recognized her when she’s not screaming at someone! But as always, J.J. spits the truth.
The ladies asked Judy what her thoughts were on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”‘ Brandi Glanville, who made headlines this week [second to last item] for saying that seeing her ex-husband’s new wife LeAnn Rimes holding Glanville’s children made her feel violently angry. Judge Judy very politely suggests that everyone STFU and grow up. “You have to love the child more than you hate each other,” she advised, before adding later, “Only mature people should have children,” to audience applause. And if Judge Judy had to issue a license to have children? She would.
Eeek. Anyone else a little afraid they would not pass muster?
Oh look, how adorable. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian got married — again! For their first wedding anniversary, LeAnn and Eddie chose to do something totally unique — they renewed their vows! How romantic. There’s no better way to prove how deep your love is than to dive deep into your pockets every year and blow a wad of cash on another celebration. If I sound sarcastic, it’s because I am. I absolutely loathe this celeb-driven trend of renewing your wedding vows every dang year. Save it for when you’ve really put some muscle and sweat into making it work, okay, like a 10th anniversary. Not to put a damper on LeAnn and Eddie’s second big day, but I actually think renewing your vows ups your chances of divorce. Just click through this slideshow — four out of nine are divorced and at least one more is reportedly on the rocks. Okay, so maybe those odds are just a reflection of the current divorce stats. Whatever — save your cash for couples therapy, folks!
A couple of weeks ago, Kim Kardashian announced her desire to get right with God and start a Bible study group. We weren’t sure she would follow through, but it looks like she found a new friend on a similar spiritual path. LeAnn Rimes is more than happy to study scripture with Kim at the Life Change Community Church. They’ve even taken to Twitter to announce their new friendship. “So nice when your circle of supportive girl friends grows!” LeAnn tweeted. After church, Rimes also tweeted “@KimKardashian great seeing you and the fam. See you soon xoxo,” with Kim replying “You too babe! See you soon! Xoxo.” We weren’t expecting a friendship to bud between these two, but hey, why not? You know what they say, friends who pray together, stay together.

So. I’m currently considering a very, very, very last minute New Year’s trip to somewhere hot. It is barely winter and I am already suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. And there have been signs that I am meant to go out of town and get a tan in the very near future. For example… Keep reading »
