LeAnn Rimes preview: ‘No one can quite understand why you hurt so badly’

As we discussed yesterday, LeAnn Rimes sat down for her first television interview since she entered rehab or some kind of mental health/spa facility shortly after her 30th birthday in September. LeAnn made a really big deal about how she was going for a month-long treatment or something, but she was “out” within a few weeks, and I guess she’s claiming that she’s “cured” now. Except that she keeps on tweeting and she’s still ensconced in her own perpetual victimhood and she can’t really see anything beyond her own narcissism. So, as you can imagine, I’m sure this television interview will be a doozy. LeAnn sat down with Katie Couric, and the interview isn’t going to air until Friday. But Couric did put up this preview and… just watch it:

I guess we can give LeAnn credit for crying on cue? Is that what she’s really doing, though? I don’t think she’s “acting”. I think her emotions, her own sense of her own victimhood and her own untouchable sadness are always front and center, and she can just cry at the drop of a hat whenever anyone is like, “Oh, you poor thing.” Still, I guess it’s notable that she managed to dodge the actual question of “Why did you seek treatment?” And I guess Couric didn’t actually check up on the whole “30 days” thing. Because LeAnn did NOT spend 30 days in whatever facility/spa, as she seems to be claiming.

Screencaps from the video, plus a photo from LeAnn’s World.

    It’s official. She is the new cat lady. Her face is completely terrifying.

  2. Mandy says:

    Barf. With that said, I WILL watch this. There’s nothing more entertaining than watching a trainwreck. It’s sad, but true.

  3. Jennifer says:

    They both look insane in the last photo…

  4. Skipper says:

    What is this interview for and why do celebrities grant them – or seek them out – if they just plan on dodging questions the whole time?

  5. brin says:

    Even the queen of delusion can’t hide from the truth….her life is a mess.
    Maybe if she thought about someone else beside herself she could deal. So dramatic!

  6. NerdMomma says:

    I’m pretty self-centered, just being honest here, and it’s super easy to cry for myself. That’s what she’s doing. “Poor me!”

  7. Mia 4S says:

    She truly doesn’t realize how ridiculous she is, once again hooray for the stunted growth of child stardom! When her marriage falls apart…yikes I can’t even imagine that train wreck.

  8. DanaG says:

    Leanna has no coping skills whatsoever. It’s called karma dear steal another women’s husband and bad stuff can happen. We all know how it’s going to end and being such a basket case is simply going to make it happen faster. I’m surprised she hasn’t gotten pregnant but maybe that is what the ex did wrong. And Leanne is so self absorbed in herself and her own body I don’t see her giving up anything.

  9. Sarah says:

    “narcissists maintain self-esteem by seeing themselves as misunderstood and a subject to intolerable demands” – wikipedia makes a good read on this

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      This is pretty close to a psych college class i had and sadly my brother in law who lives with my husband and i.

      Just like the bil she will do as she likes and if anyone has a problem they are a bully and she is the innocent flower trying to live her life.

      In her mind her actions and thoughts are justified and really she wouldn’t even think thoughts unless they were the correct in every way.

      I believe she isn’t full blown narcissistic though. She seems from time to time still aware she did wrong by stealing eddie and knows he isn’t so committed as she is. I bet it scares her all the time with paranoia of his cheating.

  10. Prinny says:

    No, I guess no one can understand when you’ve spent the last three years on twiitter saying how happy you are, and how perfect your life is. Leann, do you even see how crazy you look?

  11. Kaye says:

    Her face looks different again. I’m starting to feel sorry for this woman.

  12. Elisabeth says:

    once Eddie cheats and they divorce it’s Lindsay Lohan part 3

  13. Kimbob says:

    Lookit….what I just saw in that video clip is called CRYING ON CUE if I ever saw it.

    Oh poor, poor me….cry me a river.

    This, to me, is conclusive evidence that she went “spa-ing” & did not seek out, or get treated for any mental health or emotional issue. The reason? SHE CRIED ON CUE…her abject sadness, feeling SORRY for herself….right there up-front and center for us all to see.

    If she’d REALLY gotten help for her “issues,” and she was BETTER or HEALING, she wouldn’t have to CRY ON CUE! Her outlook would have been better, brighter, & more hopeful. This is TOTAL BS MALARKEY.

  14. tru tru says:

    I can cry on cue, if I think of something sad and if you think about it..she has a bunch of untold SAD things to think about (cough) Slick Eddie. LOL

    has her face always been so puffy and tight??
    that first pic is hilarious!!

    she looks like a melting face version of Lucy
    “ohhhhhh Rickyyyyyyyyyy” She is not looking at Katie but looking off and “thinking of something sad”.

    Slick Eddie was not there for support huh? Is he done w/her and can’t be bothered??

  15. Guest says:

    So bbs I’ve been nosy snooping on twitter. What’s this I hear about Eddie vacationing in Colorado when Leann claimed they were in bed this weekend.

  16. Lemonade says:

    Men, Women, and Children are dying all over the world from preventable diseases, starvation, wars…

    and LEANN is the one in pain. *eyeroll*
    Maybe she should have gone the Angelina Jolie route and accomplish some community service to open her eyes and give her some perspective on real pain and tragedy. Public fallout from breaking up a family is nothing compared to what people are going through in Syria right now.

  17. NeNe says:

    Why are people still interviewing this looney?????? Who really cares what she has to say any? I certainly don’t.

  18. nomorerimes says:

    Could this possibly be the “play for sympathy” just before the announcement that EC has left the marriage? Sure hope so but I won’t feel any sadness for her!

    • Macey says:

      you could be onto something there. Im curious about the post above that said he was in Colorado.

      Aside from that, Im so tired of seeing her with her mouth open, does she not see how disgusting she looks, every damn picture. its so funny.
      I cant bring myself to watch but i can imagine how phony it is, everything about this chick is just PHONY.

      • Jessica says:

        The woman who met him in the airport tweeted about it. It was on Sunday. Oh and this woman is really pretty. Its very believable he and his friends struck up a convo w/her. She says he told her he had a connecting flight there into Bakersfield. Interesting because Bakersfield is about 3-4 hours outside of Los Angeles. Why fly into an airport so far away from your house, Eddie?

      • Vesper says:

        @ Jessica,

        Interesting. Back when Eddie was in his boyband he had a gig in Ottawa, Canada. At the time he was dating Brandi. Some of my friends, one being absolutely gorgeous and a former model, tried to flirt with him and he was very aloof, as were his friends.

      • nomorerimes says:

        @Vesper–He was aloof because he was dating Brandi!!! And in love with her!!! He is so not in love with LR. So why should it surprise you that he flirted with another woman now? Get over the idea that LR is his dream and forever woman. She is just like he said–a speedbump in his life and he will soon get rid of it!! Soooooon!!!

  19. Quinn Parker says:

    Her insides match her outside.

  20. dorothy says:

    What did she say? I’m sorry, I wasn’t paying attention, because I don’t care.

  21. Valerie says:

    LeAnn makes no sense. She has spent the last few years tweeting about her absolute bliss, constantly claiming to be incredibly happy and in love and posing for staged photo ops of her clinging to her husband and being inappropriate with his children. Now she’s on Katie Couric, crying and playing victim. What is the truth? Not her truth, the actual truth. LeAnn plays the “poor me” card at every turn. She compares her dental pain to that of a cancer patient, then hours later is photographed out and about, sporting that insane looking, open mouthed, hyena like, laugh/smile. She may not be crying on cue. but she is drowning in self pity in the way that only a true narcissist can. She was either lying when she claimed to be so ridiculously happy, or she is lying now about her “pain”. Either way, she is a liar. That is the one thing I know for sure about her.

    • LG says:

      She’s such a dumbass omg.. now i understand why she was “bullied” on Twitter… well she probably wasnt bullied more as couldnt take the truth aka she IS a homewrecker and she IS fugly… is it bullying if its the truth?

      • Valerie says:

        But LG, it isn’t “her truth”. You know, the only one that matters. LeAnn has bullied and had others do it on her behalf, but she can’t handle it when people call her out for her pathetic behavior and obvious lies. You are correct with the dumbass analysis. She actually thought she could do and say whatever she wanted and be embraced by everyone and boy, was she wrong.

  22. Mela says:

    Botox face WOW! Her upper lip and forehead do not move… Did she go cross eyed too?
    Way too young to be hitting the botox that hard!

  23. scotchmiss says:

    What is going on with the area between her eyebrows? She looks like a well groomed cave woman!

    or the ‘missing link’………

  24. eileen says:

    That first picture is the stuff of nightmares. Thanks Kaiser for a good scare in honor of Halloweeen!

  25. judyjudy says:

    Hunh ? I thought she was insanely happy. Why DOES she “hurt so badly”?

  26. hoya_chick says:

    I’m reading this on my phone so I can’t see the video. I may watch it later but honestly those photos, especially the first one, scared me. She didn’t use to look like that. What’s going on with her face?! Also, what is she promoting? Her life? Why is she giving interviews and still tweeting when according to her the media and social networking sites are the reason for her mental break down. And don’t say her album because she has been cancelling ‘tour’ dates left and right but is all of a sudden cured of all her ailments just in time to grant a tv interview. I really think she is crazy. I’m not saying that to be mean or funny. She is truly certifiable. Look at her! Smh.

  27. moptop says:

    Katie Couric looks dreadful.

  28. Cam S says:

    How come everything this trick tweets is sunshine, love and happiness, and then she gives interviews where she is crying?

    Just like in August she celebrated her birthday a WHOLE MONTH, and was ecstatically happy- then BOOM Rehab!
    This woman treats her fans like idiots and she will FOREVER be fishing for sympathy and forgiveness.

    She needs to worry about FORGIVING HERSELF and then moving on. She is a LIAR. And telling the truth or stating a FACT IS NOT BULLYING!

  29. bns says:

    I can’t watch. Too much second-hand embarrassment. I’m cringing just from looking at the screencap.

  30. Ellie66 says:

    In the first picture she looks like Jenna Jameson. What did she do to her face? Yikes!

  31. Green_Eyes says:

    Train wreck all the way around…

  32. Jaded says:

    She just ran away from all the mess she created like any good chicken. Rehab for stress my ass. Her house of cards is collapsing and she can’t face the reality of her sham ‘perfect life’.

  33. HotPockets says:

    I have a tendency to think that a lot of child stars are emotionally stunted. Since they grow up in the industry and don’t live out normal childhoods and develop meaningful relationships with others their same age.

    Leanne’s mental state is probably at the same level that it was when she first entered the industry, 15 or 16? That’s how she acts and her inability to understand why there was a public backlash forwards her actions, not to mention the fact she has been drawing this affair through the mud for years now.

    When the whole twitter war started, that spoke volumes about her emotional maturity, most of us know when to let a loosing battle go. She never developed any coping mechanisms because she never progressed into being an adult.

    • claire says:

      Yep. Totally agree. And at that age, her parents were telling her that she was God’s gift to the world, she was the best at everything, and probably that anyone who didn’t like her or her bratty ways were just jealous haters. All that leads to this narcissism and perpetual playing the victim. I mean, really! Has there been a time, at all, during the affair, during the bullying of Brandi, during the betrayal of her own husband, where she has NOT played herself to be the victim? It gets old. How many freaking platforms does she need to play this card? Isn’t she embarrassed that this is how she promotes her career?

    • Snowangel says:

      +2 . A no-fail recipe to bake a narcissist.

  34. GirlyGIrl says:

    Katie Couric interviews Leeann Rimes….

    All the 2 of them need now is a time machine so they can go back to 1999 when people might have cared.

  35. Dirtnap says:

    A mature human being, no matter how much he or she is “hurting,” realizes that being in “pain” is not ever a reason to inflict pain onto others. Quite the contrary. A mature human being does not ever want another person to hurt as much as he or she does and in fact will go to great lengths to avoid passing along that hurt. I would really love for her to just throw up her hands and admit that she has no control over anyone’s behavior but her own and GROW UP. I’m not saying that to be mean. She is nowhere near 30 in emotional years. And she will never get better until she deals with her “pain” in a more productive way.

  36. jess says:

    Im expecting to hear an announcement within the next year that her and Eddie are getting divorced. I think her marriage is failing and thats why shes went to rehab.

  37. Jennifer says:

    If I had a daughter, I would use Leann as an example of what NOT to be. Don’t be self-absorbed, don’t be selfish, don’t be fake, don’t get excessive plastic surgery, don’t be delusional, don’t break up families, don’t be mean, etc…. She’s really lost touch of reality. Can’t believe Katie is giving her a public forum.

  38. Grace says:

    Yeah…Brandi needs to hurry up and get her kids away from this nutjob. When Eddie debuts his new woman and both Leann and Brandi are freaking out, this all is going to get very ugly very quickly.
    What are these broads going to do when Eddie gets someone else pregnant? Wait for it…

  39. Rita says:

    Every celebrity PR person will tell you that if the public isn’t envious of your claim to happiness in this terrestial eutopia, then play the “pity me victim” card while I struggle as the “under dog” to over come the failures in my humanity (We all have faults, even intentional faults).

    Doesn’t work very often but she has nothing left.

  40. Mela says:

    Im so interested to know what Leann Rimes thinks of Brandi and Schena’s discussion of Eddie on RHOBH. I have heard that Eddie overlapped Schena and Leann as well so Im sure Leann knows by now but to hear it out loud, on television and she cannot control what Brandi amd Schena say, must make Leann nervous. leann cant “spin” it to become her “truth” ie “i am the only one that matters”. to publicly include another woman to make it a now love quadrilateral must be so embarrassing because how could Leann possibly be happy as the b-team jump off? House of cards is falling down!

  41. Jennifer Astin says:

    1. Why not just plainly say, “I went for stress and anxiety.” Her need to elaborate on EVERYTHING is really gross.

    2. Did anyone else notice the hyper defensive tweet to the girl who originally posted this clip on Twitter? LR got pissed and made a big stink that she WASN’T crying, that she was super calm and relaxed. Ok.

    • Ming Lee says:

      i saw that tweet..something like: i didn’t cry, i was CALM.

      leann’s tweets always read snappy/rude

    • claire says:

      Saw it. Could practically imagine her snapping her fingers at the girl. It’s things like that, that are so typical narcissistic. Leann’s got a script, the way she wants things to be seen, and the truth should only come from her. Someone says something about her that deviates from what she’s putting forth (calm/relaxed!), and she snaps at them. She does this to her fans all the time! I don’t know why they put up with it. A normal person would have been like, “hey, it was okay. thanks for your concern”, but no, Leann gets nasty with them.

    • brin says:

      If that was what she considers calm no wonder she’s a delusional wackjob. She has zero self awareness.

      • claire says:

        Kinda like when she was on the Ellen show, and talked that up so hard, how wonderful it was, how welcoming the audience was, blah and blah. Then the show airs, and she gets stone cold silence from the audience, no one laughs, you could just tell they hated her. She’s either totally that delusional or just seems to lack any self-deprecating humor abilities to try to play these things off in an even remotely endearing way.

  42. Memphis says:

    Oh boo f*cking hoo….

    Crying on cue doesn’t equal remorse, and lying to the world about your supposed victimization isn’t going to make us forget all the shit you do.

    Get over yourself.

  43. midnightmoon says:

    @hotpockets: nail on head. enough indulgence at such an early age & you get out-of-control adults. bieber is a male example. most of the trainwrecks make regular visits to this blog (not the posters!). have a nice days celebitches! raining in bc, canada. good stuff!

  44. Happy21 says:

    WTF has happened to her FACE! My GOD! It’s terrible, it’s awful.

  45. j.eyre says:

    Kaiser, you are the master of the thumbnail photo. This one is the sole reason I opened the article. Honestly, it’s a gift.

  46. Rita says:

    The obvious reasons for this interview are:

    1.) Nobody else wants an interview with Katie.

    2.) With the premiere of Brandi’s show RHOBH and all the publicity Brandi is getting, LeAnn felt the need to cry on TV.

  47. Hope says:

    STFU Leann..you hurt so badly because you live in daily fear of Eddie cheating on you.and now you are projecting your f’n insecurities on a teacher who taped you while you were mocking her with your lunch budies..I have no pity for you. You need to get on your hands an knees and ask people to forgive you sincerely and you actually may have a real shot a second life..until then you reap what you sow.

  48. Lisa says:

    It’s frustrating to see her use this like she’s being a voice for someone. She’s the voice of narcissism, nothing else.

  49. Palermo. says:

    WHY do we know the most personal aspects of this idiot’s life? Because SHE put it all out there. I’ve been a fan of Aretha Franklin for years, but I know next to nothing about her private life. Why? Because she sings and keeps quiet about the rest of it. How fricken hard is it. I detest this braying ass of a woman. She is terrified because she thinks without Eddie she is nothing. And she has made this true …

  50. Mia says:

    How is this useless twit even relevant in our universe? Please Just Go Away Already!
    No One Cares!

    *Shame on her for sitting there whining when there are so many evil and horrendous things happening all over the world…what a disgrace!*

  51. Ben says:

    She obviously still has issues. I hope she gets better. Everyone deserves to be happy and content.

    • emmie_a says:

      She will never get ‘better’ bc in her delusional world she is and will always be the victim. She will continue to lie and manipulate and feel sorry for herself. She will continue to seek publicity for her torment and will continue to torment innocent people with her lies.
      It will only end when people like Katie Couric stop buying her bullsh*t and feeding her psychosis -or- when someone crazier comes along and we lose interest in her all together.

  52. Lisa says:

    I still feel sorry for her on some level. Something like this shouldn’t be battled with publicly. Hiding or shaming mental illness needs to stop, but when you bare all like this without a real purpose, it doesn’t help anyone. She’s using the media as her therapist and nothing good has ever come of that.

  53. Sweet Dee says:

    Wowie. It doesn’t seem that long ago that LeAnn had a human face and Katie Couric had some credibility.

    How things change eh?

  54. juju says:

    Karma, this is want happens when u take somebody’s husband !! yeah u acted like you were her friend and all along u wanted her husband !! well now u got him, so what seems to be the problem !! you’ll never have peace of mind, you’ll always be thinking he’ll do the same to u !! this my friend is called KARMA

  55. serena says:

    i have a few questions:
    1) WHY does her face look like that? seriously, what is that?
    2) WHY is she giving this interview?
    3) WHY is Katie Couric interviewing HER? She is not even relevant and does not actually DO anything

    And the saddest thing about all of this is that she wouldn’t be in the public eye if she didn’t insert herself in it every day. And I do believe it is the public eye, and her inability to deal with the chatter etc. that is making her unhappy.

  56. the original bellaluna says:

    I maintain she had more extensive plastic surgery. (NOT rehab!) LOOK AT HER FACE!!!

    As far as the “success” and timing of this interview, she did it in an attempt to mitigate Brandi’s HW premiere (like I said yesterday).

  57. claire says:

    I don’t get why so many people think Leann is overstating the issue of Katie flying to LA to do the interview. Sure, Leann probably thinks it’s because she’s such a big star. But think about it…Why wouldn’t Katie fly there? LR’s the Lindsay Lohan of country music. Trainwrecks are ratings gold.

  58. mln89 says:

    you can tell she tries so hard to look sexy and attractive, but DAMN she’s ugly! when she started “crying”, her face looked so grotesque, i threw up in my mouth a little. and why can’t she drop the charade already? she’s not ANYONE’S fucking victim. why doesn’t she open up her squinty eyes and see the electronic trail showing that she’s been victimizing and bullying everyone else? she’s delusional and she should already know that people don’t like her. NOTHING, not a lawsuit or this ridiculous interview will EVER make her a sympathetic public figure. get over it. i have one piece of advice for her: get off twitter, you f*cking idiot! and unless you want to keep on looking like you’re trying to impersonate a horse, eat something too. the gaunter your face looks, the larger your teeth look, and the more you look like mr. ed.

  59. eileen says:

    Everyone who would like, please go to snarkycow “Bovine Retribution” blog and donate to the Kim Smily fund. She had several lawyers lined up to take this pro-bono, but once they realized Leann and her lawyer will draw this out as long as possbile they backed out because they can’t put that many hours in over that amount of time without payment. Leann’s lawyer hasn’t even spoken to her since he filed the suit-they are in no hurry.
    Kim retained a lawyer, and he’s very good, but she is struggling with funds. Anything helps!
    Thanks girls. Power to the little people!!

    • Rita says:

      Thanks, Kaiser for allowing Eileen to make this post. I’ve already donated but will do so again. Keeps us informed on twitter through the BB’s, Eileen.

      btw- I love surfing around the twitter world and seeing all the smiley faces and #TeamSmiley logos. Tell Kim we’re in this with her until the end.

    • Lemonade says:

      Hopefully Leann’s lawyer is being quiet because he is hoping Leann will want to either drop it or settle. Have they given Smiley an option to settle yet? I would hate to think a singer would want a mom of 6 to sell her house just so leann could forward that stolen money to a charity of her choice that will undoubtedly not want the publicity that comes with that dirty lawsuit.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        LR’s lawyer should be EMBARRASSED to be even remotely involved with this farce!

        And from what I’ve read, no charity of her choice wants her dirty money OR the notoriety that it would surely entail.

        Because you KNOW she’d tweet the name of the charity, and they DEF don’t want THAT drama!

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Thank you, eileen & Kaiser & CB. I’ll grab my card and head over there.

  60. Jessica says:

    She’s probably crying because she’s completely jacked her face up. At her best she was “cute” before Ed. Now she’s downright homely.

  61. Dimebox says:

    Leann’s notes to self on photo captions:

    First pic: “I have suffered so deeply” *sob*
    #2: “I’m squinching my eyes to try remember to keep my lies straight.”
    #3 “I just told a whopper, must look innocent and angelic.”
    #4 ‘I look at Katie sincerely so she will believe and empathize.”
    #5 “She bought it, Katie the fool bought it!! I think I look so much better than her too. Score!!”

  62. skuddles says:

    Wonder if she realizes the only reason people pay any attention to her anymore is because she’s turned herself in a sideshow freak? And I’m not just talking about her looks.

  63. Madriani's Girl says:

    I can’t stop laughing at the main pic. She has this look on her face like, “You want me to shed genuine tears? What’s that?”

  64. dorothy says:

    It’s not that people don’t understand, they just don’t care LeAnn.

  65. Rux says:

    This bitch just needs to shut it. I had no idea anyone can “wine” so much besides a box of Vella.

  66. why? says:

    This is what “rehab” taught Leann? I forgot, she didn’t actually go to rehab. Where is her insight? Surely if she had been to rehab like she claims, wouldn’t they have taught her to own up to her actions and stop blaming others for her bad choices? She is attempting to blame others for not understanding why she “suffers”. People don’t wonder why Leann is suffering because it’s obvious to everyone that she “suffers” because she makes teh wrong choices. Like this interview with Katie, album about her affair with Eddie, bullying others and then claming that she is the one being bullied.

    Why does the media continue to propagate her lies? If she had been in rehab like she claimed, this interview wouldn’t even exist.

    Why does the media always fall for her sob stories since she does this everytime she is about to release an album or single? In 2010, the platform was that she was too depressed about her divorce to get out of bed. In 2011, she tod GAC that she didn’t have the tools to know it was wrong to cheat with a married man. Now it’s rehab and people not being able to understand her?

  67. gg says:

    Why anybody tweets what they do with their husband and/or the state of their marriage is beyond me. This is called “YOUR BUSINESS” and it’s gauche to broadcast anything of this nature. She knows that, but it’s too much of a temptation to not fling it all in that Brandi woman’s face, to get some cheap, quick self esteem by making somebody else feel bad. It only makes matters worse though. It’s the entire basis of why people can’t stand her now.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      THIS! So with you on that, gg. It’s one thing if you are speaking privately to friends/family but why put your personal sh*t out there for the whole world to see? Most guys I know would be embarassed by a chick who is always tweeting about their personal lives.
      I know I would if the roles were reversed and the guy I dated was putting eveything out there for the world to see. Ugh. This girl has more issues than a magazine subscription.

      • emmie_a says:

        I think she shares everything because she doesn’t have friends!! It’s downright pathetic and would almost be sad if she wasn’t such a despicable person.

      • gg says:

        @ kitten, good lord, I know – red flag! She seems very textbook passive aggressive/low esteem imo. She is a person with not enough to do, so things get all out of proportion in every direction, and she seems stunted emotionally – I guess being a child star forced her to stay in her immature persona and unable to act like an independent adult, strong person. And I’m turning into Dr. Drew…

  68. teehee says:

    I can’t even begin to understand anything about her at this point– if you were to make an assessment of this mess, where would you even start??
    I want to say something about this- because it so many levels of wrong– but its just not literally possible to describe it LOL

    Is the reason LeAnn and Brandi are not “getting along great right now” b/c of the upcoming book and interview she gave while LeAnn was in rehab? Anyone know?
    Also, if LeAnn and Eddie break up, I doubt Liz will stick around for LeAnn which will only spark yet another meltdown from LeAnn.

    • eileen says:

      I’m not sure, but my guess would be the meltdown Leann’s been having about her absentee husband and her unstable mental state. Probably doesn’t give Brandi the warm and fuzzies knowing her kids are over there in a volatile home.

    • Linda says:

      It’s most likely due to the “Brandi is vindictive as sh*t” remark that LeAnn actually denied to Brandi ever took place. Brandi got to hear first hand, how hateful and spiteful LeAnn was in that recorded conversation that LeAnn said never happened.

      LeAnn is a FRAUD!!

  70. Newtsgal says:

    When I look at her, it’s as if the Grinch mated with a donkey….she is just creepy!

  71. Daisy says:

    She caused her ex-husband and Brandi G. extreme pain and suffering and expected them to get over it and basically be happy that she had found “LovE”. Now she expects sympathy because she is “struggling”? What a narcissistic, worthless mess. She so obviously cares only about herself, in every single situation and it makes her completely unlikeable. She needs to shut up and go away. Her husband is a cheater who is using her for her money and she deserves all of it. Her constant attempts at garnering sympathy only makes people more repulsed.

  72. candigirl says:

    This is just the beginning of Leann’s pr for her release of the first singles from her new album. She and Curb Records are calling in all their favors and pushing for whatever interviews they can get. This crying on cue for Katie is a marketing ploy by Leann. She is going try to sell her delusional “truth” on this album to the public with interviews like this. She’ll break down in tears on stage too (if she doesn’t cancel), while debuting the new songs. All for sympathy and attention and sales. And the hicks who pay for tickets and bother to show up deserve what they get. Hillbilly Drama.

  73. claire says:

    She must get a lot of really rude remarks on the Daily Mail. I just noticed on the article about her that it says: comments are moderated in advance. On most other articles, it says: comments are not moderated.

    That’s crazy.

  74. Julianthe says:

    ‘No one can quite understand why you hurt so badly’
    … well because b!tch you’re mentally ill!

  75. Zombie Shortcake says:

    I am convinced that she has an honest to God actual mental disorder/disability that is not being treated. Unless she gets a Dean Sheremet/Old Man Spears support type care-giver again, her whole life will continue downhill because she is just unable to manage or cope with the effects of whatever she has.

    • teehee says:

      Yes, there you go- you said it better than I could have. I would have gone into too many details and tried to describe it etc– lol
      And saying mental disorder in no way reduces her worth as a person. She has the potential to start anew- what will determine how we see her, is how she uses her chance- whether she uses it. And yes, it is painful and devastating, even if she is not fully aware of the mess she is in or why. That doesnt make the struggle less valid, though.
      Thanks for your comments, I really love understanding about mental disorders. (your comments alot better than mine lol) Of course, it takes a while to see when soeone has one and before then, its easy to mistake the persons actions for what they are at the core. The more people do that, the less likely she is to recognize the issue herself….

  76. Zombie Shortcake says:

    (Continued) I believe the pain from living with her disorder is real: Not being able to experience fulfilling relationships, no genuine satisfaction from daily life, not being able to maintain friendships or meet work commitments, not possessing the mental reference points or baseline for critical self analysis and self awareness.

  77. dre dog says:

    She starting to look like Eddie

  78. Relli says:

    Ladies & gentlemen we have found leann’s pink coat picture in still number 1!

  79. Lillian says:

    I think she should play Janis Joplin rather than Amy Adams.

  80. AmyB says:

    But the reason that she is not okay is probably of her own good. She looks like she had plastic surgery and its gross. I am 43 and hate to see wrinkles in my face but would never opt to look like I went under the knife. It looks scary…why dont women see that. Say what you may about Leann she is 30 for God’s sake…..hardly of needing something. She looks really scary here, sorry.

  81. TheTruthHurts says:

    If LeAnn was a healthy, normal human being, I would suggest she regain her image this way: If Eddie is indeed cheating on her, dump him. Then, publicly apologize to Brandi for doing the same as what is now being done to her. Say that you were blinded by love & made horrible mistakes by sleeping with her husband and apologize for taunting Brandi with the photo ops with Eddie & her children once they were together. Say that as a woman, I am ashamed of my behavior & from this point on, will truly try to be a better human being. Say you realize how self involved you were & that you now plan on working with habitat for humanity for 6 months (and actually go and do it with NO PHOTO OPS).

    I think if she did a grandiose gesture like that, it would be the ONLY way for her to win back fans. Dumping Eddie & admitting the mistake MAY get some respect back from women that she previously lost.

    I know it will never happen, but since I believe LeAnn reads this blog, I’m hoping she’ll take the above as a tip & LEARN from it. #TRUTH

    • Cam S says:

      @ TheTruthHurts

      I agree at this point, HONESTY is her only option to regaining her career. People are only interested in her personal life because she puts it all out there for everyone to comment on.

      But in order to do the what you so eloquently stated above, you’d have to possess humility, decorum and self awareness. Leann possesses NONE of those qualities!

    • OhMyMy says:

      I agree with you wholeheartedly but I know Habitat won’t let her work on a construction site in a bikini. That’ll be a deal-breaker for LeAnn.

      Now I have to go scrub my brain with hot water and soap to get rid of that image.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Totally and completely agree, but LeAnn doesn’t have that kind of insight or humanity. Her ugly, cruel behavior after “winning” Eddie was beyond the pale. Whatever she has happen to her is richly deserved and I don’t mean Couric interviews. How this woman endlessly manipulates people to see her as the victim is beyond me- her lies being shown as such, her vicious tweets toward Brandi, her irresponsible behavior toward the boys, her over the top PDA in front of two little boys whose family just broke up due to her, said behavior in front of the boys’ friends and teammates, her endless attempts to push Brandi out of her own sons’ lives simply because she’s inconvenient to LeAnn’s view of herself as the parent….. How does this woman have anybody left at all? How is she not seen as a vicious, dangerous, manipulative psycho to everyone? Eddie is worthless and vile, but she is the dangerous one.

      • nomorerimes says:

        Very good summary post! The only ones who stand beside her now are her paid puppets or people with either no morals or common sense capabilities! This is a very sad and scary situation. Too bad those poor boys are involved in any way with this psycho. Hopefuly that will not be the situation much longer!

  82. Cirque28 says:

    @TheTruthHurts:

    Co-sign with 1 exception. Would she ever confess to taunting anyone?

    IMO, LeAnn could be visited by a ghost and 3 Xmas spirits and the most she’d say would be, “By doing regular family photo ops showcasing ME as Brandi’s replacement, continually referring to us as ‘The Cibrian Family,’ and insisting that Eddie and Brandi’s children were MY children, I showed insensitivity to everyone, with the possible exception of Eddie who — let’s be serious — didn’t notice or care.”

    • candigirl says:

      Hahahaha, I love this:
      “with the possible exception of Eddie who — let’s be serious — didn’t notice or care.”
      because it’s soo true.
      Eddie is all about Eddie, you can see it in his eyes in every photo. It’s too bad he hasn’t done any psycho roles like the Scott Peterson movie role played by Dean Cain. Eddie would’ve been perfect for that role.

  83. Jenny says:

    She’s a brilliant singer and I know a ton of guys who love her, just by her singing alone and her beauty…she should let this loser go by or re-frame him, but she’s his ticket to fame and money. I hope she leaves him, but she seems frail, still she is a major singer who will find someone to love fast when she wises up. I love her and wish her well, Jenny

  84. Paige says:

    I don’t usually watch Katie’s show because well..it looks like a bore. But looking at Me-Ann trying to force tears from her Botox injected face. Priceless. I smell a epic breakdown around the corner.

  85. Vesper says:

    @ Celebitchy:

    Comparing a mental health facility or professional therapy to a “spa” is insulting to anyone who works in the field, or has received professional therapy on an inpatient basis.

    There are many excellent residential programs in the US for people who are having problems dealing with anxiety. The therapy provided in such a facility would be by board certified professionals who likely are either doctors or therapists who have PHDs. Most of the residential facilities are voluntary and someone can leave at any time. It is not rehab, people are not on lock down.

    I’m not sure what is so difficult to understand in this situation. LeAnn went to a facility to receive specialized therapy for anxiety. She left the facility to honour her work commitments, but returned afterward. Most facilities customize programs so LeAnn would have received extra therapy on the days she had no work commitments. It is inaccurate to say that because she didn’t stay a set period of days that she didn’t complete her therapy.

    Even taking away marital conflicts or issues with bullying, LeAnn was a child star who spent all of her time on the road. She likely never had a chance to be a kid. Like any former child star, she now has issues, however to her credit she has never dealt with those issues using alcohol or drugs.

    • nomorerimes says:

      Sorry- but noone is comparing a mental health facility to a spa. LR CLAIMED she went to therapy–no pics of her doing so (where are all the paps who follow her every move?). And from her actions since her leaving her “therapy”, IF she had any, it didn’t work! She always lies and I sincerely doubt there was any mental health stay–that’s why people figure it was just a spa stay!

      • teehee says:

        I double on that. My mother-in-law works with disabled persons (of all kinds) and its extremely hard work.
        CB was just being snitchy and saying that LeAnn just used therapy as a farce and really went to get cosmetic surgery or went to a spa- because judging by the way she stilla cts, she doesnt seem to be any better but is getting worse.
        Its no diss on institutes or workers– just a big ole diss of LeAnn!

    • Me says:

      Isnt Leann the one who called it Rehab? Vesper, curious about your opinion on Leann’s cosmetic enhancements to her face. Personally, i think when your are battling depression or anxiety it is a bad idea to make such huge permanent decisions like plastic surgery on your face. What do you think about Eddie Cibrian’s virtual silence and absence through all of this? Just curious

    • Jennifer says:

      CB is right to call Leann out on her antics and her lies.

      Who buys that she checked-in after a month of birthday partying and just as she is starting her ridiculous lawsuit? (Leann is the one who places the phone call to Ms. Smiley and Leann is the one who reveals her true character on the phone call. Yet somehow, it’s Ms. Smiley’s fault for the recording and it’s Ms. Smiley who is being sued. Go figure.)

      And as for the comment that she left the facility to honor work commitments, too bad she doesn’t make a habit of honoring work commitments on a regular basis. Many times there will be articles about how she cancelled another concert.

      Leann is just a transparent liar who needs to just go away. Hardly anyone is buying her fake-faced lies and crying.

      • brin says:

        Agreed. Leann is a manipulative liar and two weeks of spa/rehab isn’t going to change that.

      • Macey says:

        She didnt just leave for a few shows, she also gave numerous phone interviews with multiple tabs and magazines. she literally did more press for this ‘rehab’ stay than she ever has anything else. Not sure how she got any treatment in between all her interviews. I also never heard of any type of ‘rehab’ facility that would allow such things, even more so in her case considering she claims her anxiety is brought on by the media. what kind of therapist would recommend non-stop interviews for the very thing you’re supposed to be treated for. this whole ‘spa stay’ was nothing more than a PR tour and a ploy for her bogus lawsuit.

    • nomorerimes says:

      She definitely has issues but to say she has “never dealt with those issues using alcohol or drugs”—all I can say is not that we know of. She is pictured quite often with a drink in her hand and we don’t know if she has used drugs or not. Of course that is not something she would tweet about–though Lord knows she has tweeted about almost everything else.

    • candigirl says:

      Wrong, thanks for playing “pr” person, try again. Unless you were personally supervising her you don’t know what Leann was doing or taking.
      Leann was not in rehab. She tweeted and sent pictures of her twitpics to major tabloids almost every day, in “rehab,” she left “rehab” several times, not just for concerts, and checked out several days early and went on a shopping spree. Also judging from Leann’s erratic behavior, frequent impromptu concert cancellations, extreme weight loss, hair loss, and several pictures with alcohol in her hands many of us are probably correct that Leann has an alcohol and/or drug problem. Not to mention her extreme narcissism which almost assures that she will never admit there is anything wrong and certainly not change her behavior, which has torn apart the lives of two young children, whom she now exploits for her own fame and fortune. She is also financially ruining a special needs teacher with several children, out of spite for a situation she got herself into.
      Your support for her shows what a thoughtless person you are. If you cared about children or poor child star Leann, you would urge her to go to a real in-patient treatment center and stay for months to work on her deep sociopathic narcissism. You would also urge her to stop publishing photos and personal information of Eddie’s boys on her twitter, her paid fan site and every major tabloid in the US and Britain.

    • claire says:

      “It is inaccurate to say that because she didn’t stay a set period of days that she didn’t complete her therapy.”

      It is also totally inaccurate and lame for Leann and her PR to keep pushing the ‘completed 30 days’ treatment statement. Anyone who can do basic addition knows it wasn’t thirty days. It’s insulting to the public to keep pushing that, unfortunately, tabloids don’t care, they’ll print the fluff PR send them.

    • Jessica says:

      Vesper, I think YOU are the one who is not understanding what is being said. NO ONE believes this farce about rehab. First off, she was not there for 30 days. She left to perform concerts. She was still tweeting self pics. Not a whole lot changed while she was in “rehab”. She immediately stages a pap shoot in the supermarket parking lot. She gets out of “rehab” and cancels the first 6 of 7 shows of her new “tour” (if it can be called that). No one believes this so what are you confused about?

    • TheTruthHurts says:

      Vesper, first off, LeAnn is NO Michael Jackson. She had plenty of time to be a kid and get wild as we have seen from her past. Secondly, I have always believed you are LeAnn or one of her cronies posting under this name, so if I am correct, please read my advice to you above.

      • Ming Lee says:

        @thetruthhurts- i second your statement above. the no childhood is simply a b.s. excuse/playing the blame game. and vesper has always come across as leann or one of her (paid) bffs.

        of course leann reads these comments. hey le, take some advice girlfriend.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Did you ever see that Dana Carvey routine about OJ and his lawyers? “Don’t look at that mountain of evidence over here! No, no- look over there!” Vesper comes off as though she’s defense counsel. Okay, forget LeAnn calling up a perfect stranger, cursing and insulting the person AND her stepsons’ mother! LeAnn was TOO in a mental health facility where it’s appropriate to tweet, post photos and give concerts even though SHE was the one who referred to it as rehab and no rehab would allow this! She was too! Eddie, known to cheat on Brandi, did not come on to some random, gorgeous friend of hers in an airport and he certainly isn’t cheating on LeAnn now! Excuse me, stop talking about the mountains of evidence that she encouraged harassment and stalking of Brandi! Look over here; LeAnn says she’s a victim, so she must be one and you’re ALL bullies!

  86. Jazz says:

    God her face is hard to look at!

  87. Lemonade says:

    Look at this picture of Leann’s pre-bad surgery face.

    she actually was a pretty girl with a little meat on her bones. this makes me sad.

  88. stinky says:

    omg is it that hard to quit tweeting ? seriously? why cant she just do that???

  89. Sonia says:

    There is something um…Michael Jackson-ish about her face now. Maybe it’s more planet of the apes, but it’s something definitely wrong with her upper lip.

    “you know im bad, im bad ya know it, really bad” _michael jackson

  91. Mia says:

    *~Anyone notice that Eddie is no longer at her side supporting her…

    ~No comments from him during her spa stay.
    ~Not included or by her side in this ‘squinterview’.
    ~No taking advantage of this pathetic publicity to fame whore for their usual gross pics.
    ~The only pic I’ve seen of Eddie was one with his noticeable absent wedding ring.

    This marriage is already DONE! I think she is just trying to garner more sympathy for the inevitable announcement to come.

    ~Get ready for chapter 2 of Squintys’ Sympathy Fame Whore Tour!~

  92. Gigi says:

    Leann has turned into what Brandi said she would…..plastic.

  93. FLR says:

    LeAnn’s meteoric downfall is a real pleasure to bear witness to, and be a part of; couldn’t be more well deserved!

    It makes you feel like you’ve done a good deed for the day for someone other than yourself & society at large.

  94. Deanne says:

    Usually I can feel empathy for almost anyone and seeing someone cry and talk about their personal pain would move me. In the case of LeAnn Rimes, I feel like I’m just watching a person who hasn’t been able to elicit sympathy from the public through other methods and is now desperately trying a last ditch attempt to do so. I feel like I’m being fed another bunch of lies and that when she cries, it’s more because she has always gotten her way and now isn’t and it is making her so frustrated that she can’t cope and is crying out of frustration, rather than sadness. Her desire to paint herself as a victim is pathetic.

  95. Mouse says:

    The thing that annoys me the most about this narcissistic hedonist is that I feel badly for her with her issues, but her whiny antics make me not care. She’s so eager to play the victim in every situation, it makes it obvious that the opposite is true. I’m pissed that she’s making me feel empathetic toward EC who always seems so skeevy. Great job, Leann. Stop whining and get your shit together.

  96. Cirque28 says:

    If I watch the interview, I’ll probably spend the whole time puzzling at LR’s inexplicable upper lip/teeth situation. Is that some kind of strange retainer? Did a Juvederm needle get stuck? Is she eating imaginary tic tacs?

    All of the above???

  97. Brenda says:

    She looks really mentally unstable. I wonder what she’ll do when that jerk of a “husband” eventually leaves her.
