Was LeAnn Rimes’s ’30-day treatment’ a ‘publicity stunt to garner sympathy’?

I was hoping that LeAnn Rimes would be at last night’s CMA Awards, but… she wasn’t? I can’t find any photos of her, and no one is mentioning LeAnn in their coverage of the CMAs, so I guess she wasn’t there. Too bad! So enjoy these photos of LeAnn from a week ago in NYC that I never got around to publishing.

The only thing shocking about this Star Magazine story about LeAnn is that someone should have written it a month ago, and there should have been some kind of significant follow-up from some legit entertainment outlets. In September, LeAnn announced that she was entering a “mental health treatment facility” to deal with her “stress and anxiety issues”. Fair enough – I don’t think anyone is really going to argue with the idea that LeAnn does NOT have some mental health issues, although we can quibble about the exact nature. The problem was that LeAnn claimed that she was seeking a 30-day treatment… but that she would be taking the weekends “off” from treatment to fulfill some tour dates. And then she kept giving all of these woe-is-me interviews to People and other outlets while she was supposedly seeking treatment, and then BAM, she was out of the “mental health facility” a few weeks earlier than scheduled. So what was it all about?

Alcohol? Drugs? An eating disorder? LeAnn Rimes didn’t cite any of the usual Hollywood reasons for why she entered a 30-day treatment facility. That has lit up the rumor mill on the Internet, with some suggesting that the singer invented the entire thing as a twisted publicity stunt to garner public sympathy. While her reps strongly deny that’s the case, there is little evidence she ever went anywhere.

LeAnn has endured years of bad press, thanks to her affair with then married Eddie Cibrian, followed by a very public feud with his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, and frequent tirades against Twitter users. And her career hasn’t’ fared much better.

“She barely gets invited to anything anymore – not even the CMAs!” says an industry insider. “The country world disowned her, then her label dropped her.”

Instead of writing new songs, some are whispering LeAnn chose rehab as the easiest way to revive her career, believing that people would take her side out of pity.

“She says she’s a victim, but a victim of what?” snipes the source. Still, LeAnn maintains that her issues are real.

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

When Katie Couric interviewed LeAnn, it became clear that Couric had no real desire to try to pin LeAnn down on the details of this alleged mental health treatment, but I would have loved to see someone – ANYONE – ask LeAnn the direct questions: “Which mental health facility did you enter? Why did you say you were going for 30 days, yet you were done in less than 3 weeks, with weekends off? What kind of treatment did you receive?” And before you say that it’s none of my business… yeah, LeAnn has made it pretty clear that it is our business. She’s been on a “post-treatment” publicity binge and openly discussing her epic mental health problems because she wants us all to see her a victim. But she’s not providing any details because they don’t seem to back up her story.

    That’s a rhetorical question, right? Of course it’s all a stunt; her whole sham of a sad & pathetic life is a stunt to garner attention.

  2. Kaye says:

    She is starting to look like the Joker. Stop messing with your face, girl.

  3. Naye in VA says:

    I thought we assumed everything she does is for attention?

  4. dorothy says:

    LeAnn may have approached the rehab issue as a “sympathy ploy”, there are vwey few that don’t doubt she has some real mental issues. As for not being invited to CMA’s? Her star has faded. She should resign herself to doing info-commercials and move one.

    • DreamyK says:

      Mental health facilities tend to cut through people’s BS pretty fast. Since LeAnn wasn’t actually there to get *well*, they probably lit into her and that’s why she left on weekends and earlier than the month period she stated.

      She’s slimey.

  5. Csollock says:

    Of course she never went to rehab!!! She pulled that stunt to try and make the public have sympathy for her and as a way to justify the lawsuit she has filed on mrs smiley and mrs smileys 19y.o. Daughter!!! Everything she does, she tries to turn herself into the victim, no matter the circumstance, no matter if the situation is one she has created, she is ALWAYS the victim! She wasn’t at the CMA awards because number 1, no one in the country music world would touch her with a 10foot pole…she has become the outcast to all of them and number 2, she wasn’t there because she was on the set of hot in Cleveland…dong sitting her wandering eye of a husband…she tweeted about it….OF COURSE! I wish this pathetic loser of a *itch would just GO AWAY…as much as I dislike what I know about her, I’m also incredibly embarrassed by her AND think its incredibly sad that someone would waste a talent such as she has….ALL FOR A BOY WHO HAS PRETTY DIMPLES AND CAN’T KEEP HIS WEINER IN.HIS.PANTS!!

  6. Lemonade says:

    I don’t doubt she has anxiety issues and perhaps sought a therapist’s opinion but to call it rehab in the traditional, in patient sense is a sham. She had no problems cancelling concerts prior to “treatment” and no problem cancelling concerts following “treatment” so for her to get weekend passes and play on twitter during those weekends despite claiming twitter is one of her issues just throws a lot of shade on her argument. I’m tired of Leann Rimes. Jessica Andrews and Lila McCann faded away (they were teen stars in Leann’s generation) its time for Leann to fade away too.

  7. Lemonade says:

    wait did her label drop her yet? I thought she’s releading an album soon.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Supposedly, she has the obligation of one album (left) to release on her current contract. After that, her label will drop her like a butt potato.

      • Zombie Shortcake says:

        Haha I figured ‘butt potato’ was a euphemism for solid waste but googled it just to be sure and got a bunch of recipes for ‘Boston butt potatoes’: A pork shoulder and vegetable roast.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Zombie – Actually, “butt potato” is my personal term for a potato that’s “turned.” I made up the term 25 years ago, or so I thought.

        “Butt potato.” Like “OMG, WHAT IS THAT SMELL?!?” in the pantry, and we sniff and say “Oh, there’s a butt potato in there.” Then we search for the bad potato that smells like stank ass and toss it!

        BUTT POTATO!!

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        Two priceless gems in one thread!! Dong Sitter and Butt Potatoe! I LOVE it! HAHAHA!

      • Zombie Shortcake says:

        Omg bellaluna, that is a great anecdote and a great term/insult. Lol, I am for real adding ‘butt potato’ to my vocabulary. Thank you.

      • Vesper says:

        Just found an interesting article, not written by a gossip magaine. “Tim McGraw Wins Appeal Case, Is Finally Done With Curb Records”. McGraw alleged in court that Curb Records has tried to keep him perpetually under contract. The Tennesse Supreme Court agreed.

        Curb Records is LeAnn’s current label. It’s a smart move for LeAnn (or any artist) to walk away from them as well.


      • Vesper says:

        One more interesting thing to note. Tim McGraw has been with Curb Records for 20 years, and only because he took them to court is he now able to walk away from them.

        LeAnn has been contractually obligated to Curb Records since she was 11 years old, thanks to her father. She did go to court in 2000 because she wanted out of her contract, which she never signed in the first place.

        For an 11 year old girl to be forced to work for a record label and to produce a certain amount of albums over that amount of time sounds highly unethical. No wonder the girl has anxiety issues.

      • nomorerimes says:

        @Vesper–You just don’t get it, do you? Her “anxiety” problems are not caused by having a contract with Curb Records for so long. Her problems started with her parents–and not having a normal childhood? One parent wanted to lay down some restrictions and the other one let her do whatever her little heart desired! That’s not normal–a kid has to have boundaries and LR crossed them all! Google and read up about her family problems and her character while performing young. She certainly did things while a minor that should have never been allowed to happen. No wonder she thinks she can do anything she pleases now–whether it hurts others or not–and not have people disagree with her. But now she is an adult–at least in body–and should take responsibility for her actions and if there are problems–deal with them and improve herself. But no one sees that happening.

      • Lana says:

        Vesper LR’s issues when she was younger had nothing to do with contracts, it was because she was a spoiled brat who decided she had the right to do whatever she wanted because she was famous and deserved it all. Thats why she took her father to court; she was a spoiled, conniving manipulative bitch as a child and still is now. Shes still able to cry on cue as she told her step – er, bonus mom. She is a manipulative spoiled brat who badly needed to be given a hiding or several and put in her place. Perhaps is she got one or more from her mother and father regularly she wouldn’t be such a diva and spoiled brat with no heart, care or thought for others.

  8. Paige says:

    I been saying this the whole time. I truly think she knows Eddie is cheating. Now she is trying to get pity when the ish hits the fan.

  9. NeNe says:

    Of course it is a publicity stunt. She cannot even take a poop without letting the entire world know she took one. Nothing this woman does is authentic. And, nobody, with half a brain, would give this conniving, lying, famewh*ring adulterer any sympathy, at all. In fact, in my opinion, she is making herself look like a raving psychotic lunatic.

  10. LeeLee says:

    I feel sorry for her. She seems to be lost. I’m glad that she is looking for some help. I wish her all the best.

  11. Shitler says:

    She’s gonna end up a bitter old hag. She threw away EVERYTHING for the sake of a man. I feel like her story will make a great country song.. I’m feeling inspired.. I just might write a few lyrics.. Watch this space! Lol

  12. Victoria says:

    I want to know what happened to her when she was young? She’s really messed up and it makes me wonder what happened. And as they say, karma is a bitch

    • TheTruthHurts says:

      Why, didn’t you see her Katie Couric interview? She “was never a kid!” Um, yeah, whatever…and she has been making up for that the last 4 years not working and constant vacations with Eddie.

      • Victoria says:

        I don’t even know what channel Katie Couric is on, Hahahaha.
        i was thinking more along the lines of sexual abuse or something. Or daddy abandonment. This constant need for attention, if a functional beeds assesesment was performed I’d say she’s all about the attention from fear of abandonment. She acts like those annoying teens on Instagram

  13. the original bellaluna says:

    “Gee, ya think?” comes to mind!

    Of COURSE it was a publicity stunt! Designed to make HER look like the victim of yet another UNPROVOKED attack on her delicate person!

    DESPITE her suing a woman SHE contacted to try to BULLY into being her FRIEND, which went south (of the border – you know Mexico, ME!Ann – they have beaches and drinks there!) and was released to the media.

    I just CAN’T with her.

    • Victoria says:

      Do u find it weird that she’s friends w her fans? And eggs them on to defend her? I find her cuckoo for cocoa puffs, the puffs being Eddies balls.

      • Deanne says:

        One of her super fans appears to be very immature to the point of being emotionally disturbed. She literally jumps down the throat of anyone who even asks if a concert is going to be rescheduled and calls people haters for completely benign questions and comments. People on her facebook page are always telling her how great it is that she and LeAnn are friends and I get the feeling that LeAnn pretends to befriend these people in order to manipulate them into doing her dirty work and defend her to the death. It’s weird and very sad because she’s taking complete advantage of vulnerable, troubled people. for her own selfish purposes. She’s beyond horrible.

      • Lady D says:

        Taking advantage of the vulnerable and troubled has serious potential to come back and bite her in the ass. Then again, she would probably really enjoy the attention that having a stalker, involving cops, and restraining orders would bring. I should stop giving this despicable person ideas.

  14. Shelley says:

    Did Leanne ever release a song after that ‘How do I?’ song when she was 16? That was the last time I could stomach her.

  15. Mary says:

    So Eddie has been working on Hot in Cleveland? Run Betty White, run!!!

    • the original bellaluna says:

      teeheehee – She’d hand him his stank ass and show him the door!! :D

    • Vesper says:

      Along with Hot in Cleveland, Eddie is set to star in “Playing Father”, a Hallmark TV movie due to be released on Father’s Day. Other work in 2012 was guest spots on a couple of tv shows, and the film production, “Good Deeds”

      Of course, Eddie’s career was in much better shape before the divorce. Doing a quick check on IMBd, he has worked for 15 years BACK TO BACK playing a main character in a number of popular weekly tv shows while still doing guest spots and tv movies. I LOVED ‘Third Watch’ and ‘Invasion’. Interesting, he got his start on the Young and Restless playing a psychopathic date rapist.

      It’s too bad so many ugly comments were released to the media after the marriage broke up. It hurt Eddie’s career while also hurting Brandi financially (i.e. custody payments). Obviously, Eddie was making good money on CSI Miami, and on the Playboy Club ($100,000 an episode).

      However, on the up side for Brandi, a couple’s net worth is calcuated before the divorce is finalized. It has no bearing on child support. Child support is based only on current earnings, and if earnings change significantly, most often a court will order a change in the amount of monthly custody payments.

      • Lana says:

        Lol Vesper, I’d wager a large sum on Eddie being let go from the Playboy thing because of Leann’s psychotic antics such as being on set all the time (thats enough to stress directors and producers out) and stalking his attractive co-hosts even tweeting them. Face it. Leann’s psychosis is the reason he can’t keep or get a job. No one wants to deal with his crazy stalker planting herself on stage and side-eying and harassing female co-stars. If it weren’t for Crazy Norma, Eddie would get a job easily.

  16. Cirque28 says:

    There was really no reason to make an announcement publicizing her trip to ‘treatment.’ Then she gives interviews about it but remains vague on the name of the facility, the nature of the treatment (12 step program? Cognitive behavioral? Hypnosis? Acupuncture? What?), and can’t seem to say quite what it is she went for.

    Where are the tweets about all the great breakthroughs she had? Photos of her in the facility? Photos of her with her rehab pals?

    On another note– love the jacket, haaaate the boots. Dreadfully tacky.

  17. Jayna says:

    She never went to rehab. Why call it that way, anyway. She never went to a mental health facility inpatient weekly for her anxiety issues because of course she would have alerted the paps for her to come or at least leave when she went off for the weekend to sing. Nada. She visited someone a couple of times a week, and that was it, and then got bored with it when no one was covering it anymore. She probably started it really because she was having a meltdown over the twitter stuff and Eddie blew up and she started this so-called therapy. Of course, it had to be not therapy but some dramatic check-in to garner more attention regarding the lawsuit and bullying.

    P.S. I do love her ensemble. Very cute.

  18. Theskinny says:

    Crazy, Evil, AND the fashion sense of a truck stop hooker. Bad combo.

  19. Jaded says:

    @Theskinny is right – her outfit makes her fit right in with the lot lizards.

  20. Axis2ClusterB says:

    Y’know, I remember several years back when LeAnn won some country music award or another – during all the heyday of Paris and Britney and the Cracken’s crotch shots and drunk driving escapades, I believe.

    During her acceptance speech, she said (and this is not going to be a direct quote, because I can’t be bothered to actually track it down, but it’s the gist of it that’s important) that she had been in the business since she was a kid, had only been married once, and had never been picked up for driving drunk. I want to say there was also something in there about no sex tape, or not having pictures of her panties all over the place.

    At any rate, I remember thinking when I watched it that she was just asking for trouble, and it looks like karma has delivered!

  21. gamblea says:

    Maybe she noticed she was running out of ‘dentist appointments’ so had to come up with something new.

  22. tru tru says:

    well it did not work.

    I knew when she got married to Eddie her career would flop and it has.

    I just did not expect her to get all cray-cray and spazz out on twitter for the world to see.

    what a sad piece of work.

  23. Lizzie K says:

    I’m done commenting on this person. She made a public spectacle of herself chasing a married man and stalking his wife, wrecked a home with two small children whom she professes to love, engaged in a very bitter and public battle with the mother of those children, famewh*red all over Hollywood, and sued two women who dared to criticize her for it. I don’t care what she does anymore.

    And since I am certain she pores over this site and others to shore up her apparently non-existent self-esteem, and since I am sure she wants to sue everyone who doesn’t agree with her delusional opinion of herself, I will just say: This is all MY OPINION, Leann, which I am entitled to express under the First Amendment. Bite me.

  24. Lisa says:

    Well, you’ve written a whole article speculating about it, thus giving her attention, so…

  25. heatheradair says:

    HOLY SCROLL-DOWN FUG. Everything was “ok” north of ankles. Dear lawd — that girl has THE WORST taste in shoes.

  26. Boo says:

    I can’t stand Leann, but I’m sorry to say I love her outfit. I will be the lone soul to say that those fringey boots are so darn cute. I *hate* liking something about her.

  27. Rita says:

    LeAnn went into hiding, not rehab. She lied to Eddie about calling his children’s mother “vindictive as f_cking sh_t” in a public conversation that was recorded. When Eddie finally realized that LeAnn has been lying for years, he walked out and went to Aspen for a sex romp with the boys and presumably a few women. (A liar just hates to be lied to).

    LeAnn had to blame her lying on someone so she filed a lawsuit and then hid-out in “rehab” until the initial storm blew over and Eddie’s peen ran dry in Colorado.

    She’s a pariah in the country music world and with no record label she’s left singing in small venues with no band at $20.00 per ticket. She is known more for cancelling concerts than performing so nobody buys advanced tickets. At her last 300 seat venue, the best seat could be had 1 hr. before the show started.

    She has only her fabricated and premeditated drama on twitter to keep her name in circulation.

  28. Memphis says:

    Of course it was all for publicity. Anyone with eyes (unlike Leann’s demon slits that try to pass for eyes) can see that.

    She has an obsessive need to be seen as a victim, to have everyone to feel sorry for her. She wants everyone to believe that she was so put upon and crucified… It’s all Bulls*it, but it feeds who she is.

    Pity is the only true emotion that she gets from anyone so she feeds on it.

    Pathetic Bitch.

  29. why? says:

    Leann was on the set of Hot In Cleveland babysitting Eddie yesterday(she probably even posted photos from the set to her website) and asking Eddie if it would be okay to adopt a puppy that was on the set! So no CMAs for Leann. “Family” first! She is way too busy being the happy homemaker and taking care of “her and Eddie’s two wonderful kids” to think about walking the red carpet with her peers!

    In 1 day the media called Leann out on two of her antics. We rarely see any media outlets calling her out for things like what she did with rehab and on Halloween. What is going on?

    How did the paps find her outside her hotel in NYC when they couldn’t even find her when she was in “rehab”? That “rehab” center must be hidden really well for her to be able to avoid the paps for “30 days”!

  30. Stubbylove says:

    Batshit crazy and stupid is no way to go through life young lady.

  31. lucy2 says:

    When the question contains the words “Leann” and “publicity stunt”, the answer is always yes.

  32. Mel says:

    Brandi called out Leann on twitter for posting pics of her children and taunting her when she doesn’t have custody of her kids on holidays. Go Brandi.

    Leann is a bad person

  33. TheOriginalKitten says:

    #1. She is painfully irrelavant.

    #2. I WANT that red leather jacket she’s wearing.

  34. Mia says:

    ~* Getting PREGNANT will be her next big stunt. This way when Eddie dumps her sorry ass she’ll always have a trump card to manipulate him with until his last living breath.
    As for ‘Dumbass Of The Year’ award winner Eddie…this is your Karma Sandwich on a golden plate for your Many past discrepancies you huge MimBo! ~*

  35. TheTruthHurts says:

    I wonder who Eddie’s agent and publicist are. They need to tell him that the only way to get his career back is to DROP LeAnn like, immediately. He can have a comeback and get a series again. She on the otherhand is beyond repair. Her career is done and there is no coming back. Maybe she and darryl can make money by songwriting for other country stars with actual careers.

  36. LAK says:

    Was LeAnn Rimes’s ’30-day treatment’ a ‘publicity stunt to garner sympathy’?

    Are you sure this isn’t a statement?

  37. SusieQ2 says:

    Duh! Of course it was a stunt. Is the sky blue??

    I was surprised Ediot was in those Halloween pics yesterday – I really thought he’d bailed.

    I hope it killed her that she didn’t get to ‘perform’ in the red carpet at the CMAs this year. I wonder if that lawsuit was the straw that broke the camels back as far as the Country music community was concerned? She was no loss anyway.

    And Kaiser, God but I’d love to see you do interviews on the TV!! You’d take no prisoners (except for Fassy and Cumby) :)

  38. hmm says:

    SKINNY will never make up for that FACE.

  39. Zsa Zsa says:

    She looks like benicio del toro

  40. Cam S says:

    Off the subject but… This trick has the WORST fans of all time. They are of questionable intelligence, needy and insane. “Le, are you mad?” “Le, haven’t heard from you in a while, did I do something wrong?” Got dayum! They are scary as hell. These are the type of fans she attracts: Insane low IQ people, second wives that are pissed at the first wife and cheaters.

    No one with half a brain would ever be her fan. That is why when I see someone defending Leann’s behavior, I automatically assume they are crazy. Sorry- but BIG side eye to you “Vesper”

    • Deanne says:

      You bring up a really interesting point. One of then proudly showed off their LeAnn Rimes birthday cake that had a photo of them and LeAnn at one of their dozen meet and greets with her. This person actually believes LeAnn is their personal friend. They even posted a video of themselves singing Happy Birthday to LeAnn (it was painful to watch)and they have multiple LeAnn dedicated Twitter accounts and Facebook pages. It is odd as hell. The thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of them seem to have personal, health and social issues and many complain a lot about how hard their lives are, all while worshiping at the altar of LeAnn. She takes advantage of them and it’s sad. Especially for the one who keeps her head perpetually bowed in prayer. LeAnn is someone who seems to demand complete loyalty from people and the only people who are completely loyal, regardless of someone’s bad behavior, tend to be lower on the IQ scale or vulnerable in some other way. It just cements LeAnn as a manipulative monster in my book.

    • Relli says:

      No way you guys aren’t serious, right?!?! Every celeb is sure to have thier unstable fans but that sounds realy disturbing! Thats sort of reminds me of the woman who took money out of her grocery fund every month in order to give to Sarah Palin’s super-pac.

      • Deanne says:

        It’s very much like that. Misguided idol worshiping with no ability to see any flaws whatsoever. I find it interesting on a social anthropological level. They often mention that they play the same LeAnn song “Give” on a continuing loop. Like all day long. They have declared Friday LeAnn Rimes day. One of them was completely hysterical because Perez Hilton asked if LeAnn shouldn’t have considered wearing a different Halloween costume. The call themselves her army and were all going to band together to attack Perez. There aren’t many of them, but they would probably make up excuses and defend her even if she ran down a group of school children. It’s a spectacle I find both fascinating and scary.

  41. Jennifer12 says:

    This was well written and to the point. Slowly, slowly, Leann is being found out for what she is and she deserves it. She doesn’t believe she has any issues; she just thinks she’s everyone’s victim. She didn’t go to rehab. And living with Eddie is her punishment. Vice versa, too. I will say her outfit was cute, except the boots. That outfit needed a less fussy boot.

  42. Vesper says:

    Of course it is a publicity stunt. LeAnn always lies. She lied about her entire career. She is the devil incarnated. Her and Eddie deserve to burn in hell for all eternity for all of the evil they have brought upon mankind. INSERT SARCASM OBVIOUSLY.

    Don’t any of u do any research before u bash someone? Just because a low level gossip magazine publishes something, and quotes an unknown source does not make it true.

    It takes a few seconds on google, to discover that LeAnn was NOT DROPPED, from her label. Her next album, Spitfire (a STUDIO album), due to be released next year is her last contractually-obligated album under Rimes’ contract with Curb Records.

    As for the country music world abandoning her, that also doesn’t check out. LeAnn records. She still performs. She still appears to be close to many of her peers. Her last album released was produced with the help of Vince Gill. As per a quick search on Wikipedia, that album was given mostly good reviews. From personally reading numerous reviews, I found the same. At least one review said the album was her best work yet. Every critic I read praised her voice. Most reviews mentioned the fact that it was a challenging album to produce because almost all of the songs were based on classic country songs (some released decades ago) by male singers and they were originally recorded from a male perspective. Hence the name, Lady and Gentleman. Which means, the songs on that album would not appeal to a particular market, but to an older fan base, many of them die hard country music fans, unlike pop-country artists like Taylor Swift whose fan base is much younger. LeAnn obviously knew that going in.

    If people like Woody Allen who married his son’s sister, or Roman Polanski who sodomized a 14 year old girl are still able to release work that is accepted and praised by the public, do u really think music fans, are going to disappear because LeAnn decided to have an affair and leave her husband. The notion is ridiculous. Many other “celebs” have done the same, or worse.

    • sunnyinseattle says:

      And yet you are here. Reading the post???? LMFAO @ Vesper. Go away ;-)

    • Vesper says:

      Oppps…I noticed a typo in my posting above.

      It should have said: Ladies and Gentleman was co-produced with Vince Gill, AND Darrell Brown.

      • Mich says:

        I don’t see any other record labels clamoring to sign her once this “contractually obligated” album finally comes out. She’s kryptonite. And it’s not because of the cheating, it It is her actions after the affair that did her in!

      • Cam S says:

        Ask ur goddess WHERE she completed her treatment. She shares EVERYTHING about her life except for that and her mysterious illnesses that she “hopes someday will be able to tell us what exactly is wrong” with her.

        I’m thinking you ARE Darrell Brown….
        “Many other “celebs” have done the same, or worse.”-WOW that is great reasoning.

        Where did she seek treatment? End of. Game over. She is a liar and a BAD ONE at that

    • Deanne says:

      But her fans HAVE disappeared. Her last album didn’t even sell 30,000 copies. I would never argue that LeAnn is a very, very, talented vocalist. She is. I also get it that people make mistakes and people have affairs. What I don’t get about LeAnn is her atrocious after behavior. Anyone with functioning braincells can see that she tries to stick it to her husband’s ex, every single chance she gets. That’s pathetic. The ex has ever right to dislike her. LeAnn acts like she’s the person who was mistreated. She oversteps her boundaries as a step-parent in a way that is going to bite her in the butt in the years to come. Trust me. I liked my step-mother when I was young, but I don’t now. Once I realized what a narcissistic mess she was and the way she tormented my Mother for years, I completely lost respect. That will happen to LeAnn as well if she doesn’t get her act together. LeAnn’s fan base is extremely small now and getting smaller with every stunt she pulls. I wish she had people around her who saw her as more than just a meal ticket, because they could set her straight and back on the road to redemption. Unfortunately for her, the people in her life won’t tell it like it is because they are dependent on her financially. That seems to include her husband and Mother. That is tragic.

      …who else on here thinks “vesper” is actually Rimes??

    • OK Darrell..we all know this is you..Your writing on here is exactly like your Tumbler crap and your response to Ilana Angel. You need to deal with reality and except the fact that your fallen angel Leann has really pissed her career away. NOT from the affair, but her ridiculous antics that followed and continue to. You are her friend, some friend you are to continue to allow her to make such an ass of herself on a daily basis. And by the way, you must not have much to produce right now if you are reading Celebitchy.

    • Jessica says:

      Yes Leann records, but she doesn’t sell much of WHAT she records. Her last album sales were abysmal. She doesn’t show up for a large majority of her concerts. I can’t recall seeing any of country’s big stars offering any support to her with “rehab”. This new record keeps getting pushed back which isn’t a good sign and its all over the internet what people think of the material for the new record. None of it is good. Now she’s suing a teacher, who is on disability from being attacked by a student? Whoever in her PR circle thought of this ridiculous idea, Leann should fire that person immediately. What was left of her career is going up in flames because of it.

      “Devil incarnate” you mean.

    • Baylor says:

      ” She still appears close to many of her peers…”

      Just because she calls many of them “dear friends” or “sweet friends” doesn’t mean they are. LOL! So, while I am sure that’s you “proof”, it’s hardly legit.

      Hardly anyone tweets her back. No one spoke any words of support or encouragement when she went to rehab. No one defended or supported her when she was getting all this bad press and attention concerning everything Eddie. She is never pictured out and about with any of them and they never attend her parties/weddings and vice versa.

      While I am sure they are civil, polite, and professional with her when they have to interact with her, that’s hardly proof of closeness.

    • Lana says:

      Yes, many other celebs have: threw a ’7 year itch’ party while trying to seduce another woman’s husband, stalked her co-star, kept stalking him even though he called her a speed-bump, cut off his ex-wife in her car outside the children’s school and sent a her enemy a text that she moving into their area. Pushed the mother out of Parents Day and inserted herself in it, release photo ops of another woman’s children even though asked not to. Released the name of said children’s school. Single White Female the ex-wife and tweet random people the ex tweets, copies the ex’s poses, bars the ex from her son’s birthday until she catches heat from the public, refuses to allow the children even one outing alone with their father or an event with their mother and their father. Over-steps the boundaries continuously in trying to take the mother’s place in the children’s lives. Hires fans and co-workers to torment, taunt and abuse Brandi, including setting up a twitter account that has been PROVEN to come from Leann. Paying fans to come to her concerts and dinner, from which she gets info from about Brandi and her supporters. Blocks EVERYONE who follows Brandi, even if they’ve not tweeted one word to Brandi or about Brandi. Stalks and tracks down Brandi supporters to harass on the phone and BEG them to be her fan, then rant, swear and lie about Brandi, all the while putting it all on speakerphone for her 2 fans to hear and pulling and tweeting faces.
      All of this Leann has done and everything I’ve said here has been documented that Leann has done. Now, if you read even half, let alone all of the above about any other celeb, you’d say they belong in the nuthouse. Be honest here.

      Face it Vesper, Leann is a sick and deranged psychopath who needs intensive mental therapy. If you can find me one celeb who has done “that or worse”, I will buy the Statue of Liberty for you. Leann is a sociopathic psychopath who is as much a danger to herself as she is to Brandi and those two children. And you know it.

    • nomorerimes says:

      Same old story–others have done the same thing so why all the criticism! We hear the same thing from LR ALL the time! You just don’t get it–It isn’t because she had the affair and won her prize–it’s because of her continual flaunting of the results of her spreading her legs and her continual harassing of Brandi and her continual papping out her step-sons despite Brandi asking her not to. Try to keep reading this reply until it sinks in!!!!!

  43. Jessica says:

    I feel like its reached the point with this chick where everyone needs to stop writing about her and commenting on her. She just needs to GO AWAY. Far away. It won’t happen until she stops getting so much publicity. She’s a laughingstock now and appears to be enjoying it.

  44. Jane says:

    Could some send her to Dr. Phil? I would like to see him call her on her antics. She is a bloody lunatic. If he calls her out for all her BS, then perhaps she’ll STFU and go away.

    • Ming Lee says:

      yes please! i would love to see Dr P call her out on everything and include a timeline, just like he did for dina lohan. that would be priceless.

      • Jane says:

        It would be “squirm city” for her. She wouldn’t know what to do with all the accounts of her BS and stupid antics. Not to mention she keeps contradicting herself. I’d love to hear him verbally strangle the h*** out of her with such gems as: feigning illness right before a concert then being out and about bragging have such a good time at some event, famewhoring herself, her bikini antics, over-exposing her “bonus boys” to the public and her twitter addiction. I can almost hear him chew her out—I’d pay money to see that!

  45. midnightmoon says:

    MAYBE if we’re LUCKY Eddie will have snipped himself to prevent any little slippersnappers. i’m thinkin’ this would be the best scenario. no more famewhoring for ME’Ann, and Eddie can fool around til the cows come home undetected…

  46. skuddles says:

    Still rocking the horse hoof footwear I see, except now she’s gone full Clydesdale.

    And of course it was a publicity stunt, and maybe even a “put the screws to Eddy” stunt as well. EVERYTHING with the MeAnn is a scheming, manipulative ploy. It’s the only thing we can actually trust about her.

  47. Lila says:

    Doesn’t it seem like she should be running out of money sometime soon?

  48. twoblues says:

    I love her jacket.
    That’s all I have to say.

  49. wapower says:

    One word: Duh! Her entire rehab story was contrived, calculated, and pathetic. And i think it she did this for more then garnering public sympathy, I think she also used going to “rehab” for emotional issues and stress because she wants to legitimize her ridiculous lawsuit against Kim Smiley as much as possible.

  50. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    wow, shes uglier than the joker.

  51. juju says:

    sympathy for having an ugly face !! her swollen eyes look like that of someone who drinks alot !!

  52. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I think that LeAnn is addicted to Eddie Cibrian. She is so young, and hasn’t really had that many serious relationships. He may have a high sex drive, and thus he makes her feel wanted and attractive. If he really loved her, he wouldn’t go along with all this public drama. She is a great singer, and I wish she would get back to that.
    She is suing someone who probably can’t afford to defend herself, and she is getting too distracted from being an artist. Women don’t like homewreckers.

    • nomorerimes says:

      LR is addicted to twitter and having ANY publicity–good or bad! She has always been a selfish, lying, manipulative stalker–even as a teenager! She just can’t change her spots! Once a _____, (fill in the blank–stalker–liar etc) always one!

  53. Grace says:

    The meltdown this girl is about to have is going to make Britney’s look like a day at Disneyland. I hope Eddie is smart enough to leave those kids at his ex-wife’s house.
    Duck and cover.

  54. Deanne says:

    This is the kind of unstable and blatantly unprofessional behavior that is not going to win her any more fans.


    They’re saying she cut her set short, didn’t do an encore and raced home. Why? Was Eddie going to have time alone with his children? We all know she can’t allow that to happen. It’s all over the news in Fort McMurray and people are saying that Hey Romeo, who also performed, put on a better show.

    • Yasmine says:

      I think she’s on drugs or something,she keep mooving her hands everywhere,talk fast,she was not like that before,lets not talk about all the crazy black whole she getting herself and brandi’s kids in.
      I hope that this situation does not get worst!really it’s fritening
      Sorry if there’s mistakes english is not my first language

      • Deanne says:

        You are sure right about it being frightening. All of her supposed dental problems have made me wonder about prescription pill issues as well. Don’t worry about mistakes, I make them all of the time and English IS my first language.

      • Yasmine says:

        you are right it about the dental problems because let’s be honest, can you have 5 major dental problems (with surgery) in a month?
        i mean thats too much.
        i can imagine that on a really unhealthy “mouth” like someone who never NEVER took care of her teeth,not a celebrity and specially a singer who get photographed the mouth wild open.(in leeann case everytime :/)
        I have a bad feeling about her,really,a storm is comming…
        Have a good day everyone!

    • why? says:

      After ending the concert without an explanation, she then gets on twitter and tweets about how happy she is to be home and how she is spending time with her family(like the fans and venue was the bad person because if it weren’t for them she would be home with her family). What a great message to send to her fans at the event and the venue who hired her to sing. This is just like how she canceled concerts claiming she was having “dental problems” only to expose herself as a liar by doing two concerts the very next day, “being spotted” at Katuya with Eddie and “their two wonderful kids” drinking and eating sushi later that night, hiking the very next day after blogging that she was in the ER at 3 am and then posting a lot of the photos of that trip to her fan website, and then parading around a parking lot in a leather skirt and no bra to buy pumpkins which she then posted photos of to her twitter account. Or how she told her fans that she and Eddie had a “violent stomach bug” and that she was going to spend 24 hours in bed, only to be spotted looking healthy and in good health outside the hotel she was meeting Katie Couric that very same day.

      I’m surprised she hasn’t blogged or tweeted up a storm about why she had to leave so early. RHOBH airs tomorrow, so I won’t be surprised if she drags out the blog or tweets around the time that RHOBH comes on.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Leann has a beautiful voice and while it got her far initially, she doesn’t get that she’s no longer the little girl with the big voice. She doesn’t get that she’s not the only one who can sing well and that people are more interesting than she is (cough ADELE cough) with more interesting material and a better work ethic. And that’s just for starters. She still believes she’s special and amazing that her gifts entitle her to what she wants, when she wants it. She reminds me of Dr. Sharon’s article, “The Curse of ‘Special’”. Except she’s not just spoiled, she is a sociopath.

    • claire says:

      Hard as I try, I seriously cannot understand a word of what she sings.

  55. why? says:

    In Touch has a small blurb about Leann’s interview with Katie. They talk about how no one believed Leann’s victim act and even quoted some of the negative feedback the interview received from people on twitter. It’s great that some media outlets are finally brave enough to call Leann out on her antics again, but they are doing it in such a matter so that it doesn’t draw too much attention from major media outlets. It’s interesting that it’s taking the media this long to finally print what everyone has been saying for a long time. But then again a lot of Leann’s most loyal fans are losing faith in her because of her lies or how she blocks them when they don’t agree with her, so that may have something to do with the fact that the media is gradually making efforts to expose her.

    • Sugar says:

      well there won’t be any love quotes on her twit page anymore as she has offense the person who won’t that complilation. I find her bolting on the last 15 minutes of her concert quite telling that she is definitely not into being a professional entertainer anymore. Sure she showed up but why would she not finish out the concert? Were there no more flights out that night therefore instead of being home with the family she would of spent the day traveling?
      she needs to get it together where Eddie is concered because she is perpetuating her worst nightmare by her actions-losing her truE lovE by distrust. sure Eddie has a reputation as a serial cheater & she is driving herself crazy wondering if, when & who.
