“Step … Stepmother, Stepfather, Stepchildren—the word ‘step’ can take on such a negative connotation to so many in our society. A family is a family. In my eyes, there’s no ‘step’ about it … It’s not easy being a stepparent, taking on a mother or father role in your new blended family and household. It can be incredibly intimidating … One thing that I know is, I will never replace their mother. I would never try. I will however love them with all I have and do everything in my power to help raise them in a loving, safe and proper environment … These two little boys came into my life for a reason and I think I came into theirs for a reason, too.”
—LeAnn Rimes writes on her blog her assorted thoughts on being a stepmom to Eddie Cibrian’s two sons. Personally, I think her attitude on this is pretty great. What do you think? [via Huffington Post]
“It bothers me because, obviously, I know she’s healthy. She eats more than I do sometimes. She’s just a very [conscientious] eater, as far as what she eats. She eats pretty healthy, but she works out pretty hard too and she actually takes pride in the way she looks and it’s a shame that people will jump on the bandwagon just because she is fit … Whenever you get a picture taken of you, there’s always an angle that looks unflattering for anybody and it’s unfair to use those pictures as the basis of the way that you actually really look. She’s in fantastic shape and very healthy and I love the way she looks.”
—Eddie Cibrian talks to “Access Hollywood” about all the hubbub over LeAnn Rimes‘ super skinny body. While I like that he is defending his wife, he does realize that a lot of the photos drawing the concern have been posted by LeAnn herself, right? [Zap2It]
Perhaps she was inspired by the rock ‘n’ roll vibes wafting in the air in Chicago’s Grant Park? At Lollapalooza this weekend, LeAnn Rimes got a tattoo on her side. Well, at least a temporary one. The tattoo is a line in her husband Eddie Cibrian‘s wedding vows, “You gave me the courage to be truthful. I promise to give you the comfort to be trustful.” But even though the tattoo was temporary, it looks like it has more staying power. “Too funny!” she tweeted. “I can’t get it off. In search of rubbing alcohol I think!” We say keep it, LeAnn. [People]

You call that a sex tape? Still images from LeAnn Rimes’ alleged sex tape finally surfaced yesterday and holy moly, she’s wearing a tanktop and a ponytail and … yeah, it’s lame. Like, really lame. Like, why-did-I-click-this lame. Rimes was adamant on Twitter that she “never filmed [herself] having sex on tape, period” and if the images from this “sex tape” are any indication, that’s the truth.
In the old days, a sex tape was a sex tape. Pamela Anderson banged Tommy Lee in theirs. Colin Farell went down on a woman in his. R. Kelly peed on someone in his. Even Christian pageant queen Carrie Prejean masturbated in hers. The point is, back in the day, a sex tape had sex in it. Keep reading »
LeAnn Rimes is continuing to defend her thin frame and her personal trainer has joined in saying that the singer is not too thin, claiming she is toned and healthy.
According to People, Rimes has said that the “hoopla about my body” has been hurtful.
Recently, the criticism intensified after she tweeted a photo of herself in a skimpy blue bikini while she was on her honeymoon with husband Eddie Cibrian.
Rimes is quoted saying, “For someone like me who is healthy, who works hard for my body, it’s very frustrating. I work out and take care of myself, and not in an over-obsessive way.” Read more… Keep reading »
Oh cruel world, say it ain’t so. Rumor has it that LeAnn Rimes made a sex tape. No, I’m not talking about those grainy security cam videos that showed her smooching Eddie Cibrian when they were both supposedly happily married to other people. LeAnn allegedly made a sex tape with her ex-husband, Dean Sheremet. According to Star Magazine, the tape was found in a moving truck—which, what? But when Dean was asked about it, he said that it was in the realm of possibility that a tape had been unearthed. “Things like this happen!” he said. “We were married for eight years. We did a lot of s**t!”
LeAnn, naturally, is in heavy denial mode. Keep reading »
Just as we find out that Hugh Grant came thisclose to signing on to replace Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men” before coming to his senses and realizing that was his worst idea since getting into a car with Divine Brown, comes news of another television switcheroo. With Camille Grammar on the fence about whether to return for season two of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” the producers found themselves in a predicament. Camille kind of made the show, and not just because of her personality—because she was married to a famous actor and was going through a very public divorce. Luckily, they have found another lady to slip right into that slot. Brandi Glanville. As in, Eddie Cibrian‘s ex-wife who he divorced after falling in love with LeAnn Rimes while shooting a Lifetime movie. Keep reading »
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are no longer “living in sin,” as my grandma would have said. On Friday night, the two got married, trading their vows—which we hope included the line, “I promise not to fall for my next Lifetime movie co-star”—in front of 40 guests in Malibu. LeAnn quickly took to the web to share her excitement. “Eddie and I are overwhelmed by the amount of lovely well wishes. We are blessed and…. I’m Mrs. Cibrian!!!!!” she wrote on Twitter. Later in the weekend, she typed, “Happy Easter Sunday my beautiful friends! Coffee… me the computer…. Eddie the Sunday newspaper…. waves crashing…. holding hands… nice way to start it. My first Easter as a WIFE!”
Which of course brought the obvious backlash. Keep reading »
“I didn’t have the tools to know how to do it the right way, how to let go the right way. I’d never been taught that … I have the strength [now] but I didn’t at the time… So, it got really messy, but I have learned a lot from that. And I’m not glad it happened, but I know why it did.”
– LeAnn Rimes on why she cheated on husband Dean Sheremet with Eddie Cibrian. This statement annoys me. None of us were taught the right way to let go. There is no course in school that gives you the tools. You grow a pair of balls and own up to the truth because you have to, because it’s the right thing to do, not because you’re taught to. That is all. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
