LeAnn Rimes performs in Las Vegas: does anyone else think she looks pregnant?

Here are some new photos of LeAnn Rimes performing at LVH in Las Vegas on Friday night. Sigh… I’ll just say it… LeAnn has gained some much-needed weight back, right? Her legs no longer look like scraggly toothpicks. She actually might be eating the occasion solid again (and not following the solid with a laxative chaser). There have been lots of new pics of LeAnn recently, and I haven’t want to come out and say it, but I guess I should: I’m kind of wondering if she’s knock up? I know there are some conspiracy theories involving whether or not Eddie has had a vasectomy (for the record, we really don’t know), so I don’t know what to say. LeAnn is giving me preggo vibes. Look at the way this dress is falling on her. Also: FUG booties. Those things are awful.

Nowadays her family life makes more headlines than her singing career. But LeAnn Rimes isn’t letting a bit of bad publicity put her off her stride. Instead the country singer put her all into a concert in Vegas on Friday night, dazzling her fans with a passionate performance.

Ever the entertainer, the smiling 30-year-old showed off her long lean legs in a short glittery dress and wore her blonde hair curled as she moved around the stage.

While LeAnn seems constantly in the headlines at the moment, it is her home life rather than her singing that has sparked interest. Her husband Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville recently attacked LeAnn, accusing her of having a ‘severe eating disorder’ and expressing worries about the effect it would have on her children.

LeAnn denied the claims, but during an interview with Giuliana Rancic this week LeAnn admitted that she could have handled her extra-marital affair with now-husband Eddie differently. When the star began her relationship with The Playboy Club actor she had been married to Dean Sherement for seven years and he had two young sons with then-wife Brandi.

After beginning a passionate fling on the set of their movie Northern Lights in 2009, Eddie and LeAnn subsequently both filed for divorce from their other halves so they could continue their relationship.

Choking on tears during the interview, she said: ‘All I wish is that everybody we hurt, that I hurt, can be happy. I wish I handled it differently because I wish I could have been better for me, for Brandi, for Dean, for Eddie, for everyone else.’

Blah. That’s just a recap of her E! interview. Even though I was surprised that E! would devote a whole hour to the DRAMA that is LeAnn Rimes, I’m also sort of surprised that there aren’t more interviews with LeAnn these days. Isn’t she supposed to be full-on promoting her album? Where’s her interview in Rolling Stone or People Magazine or Billboard or Redbook?

    She’s looking human again – yay!!

  2. SmokeyBlues says:

    Yes she’s gained some weight back, much needed indeed. I don’t think she looks preggo, I think she just has an amazingly square body. Time will tell I guess…

  3. Isa says:

    Vasectomies can be reversed. It doesn’t always work but it can! Her face is already getting well larger. By the end of it all her features may be swallowed whole!

  4. Aubra says:

    I’m gonna need to see some better “receipts”

  5. victoria1 says:

    She looks less like that Neverending Story dog character, you know the flying one? Anyways, I wish her mental sanity. Seriously, she needs time away at a real clinic or something to deal with the issues. Plus I’m bored with this affair scandal, it happened years ago… stop rehashing it makes you look worse. Just do like Rita and Tom Hanks, don’t acknowledge it…

  6. dorothy says:

    Please, she tweets everything. If she were trying to get pregnant she would have tweeted the entire procreation process.

  7. Stars and Stripes says:

    Her face looks fat/ fuller. … Other than that she is just a ugly inside and out. That interview was phony just as much as EDiot was. You can see right through him. Wonder how many mistresses will come out of the woodwork next month now that BC and SMJ will be both be on reality shows. They are both beatiful and got smart to kick Ediot to the curb unlike Leann she keeps other people’s trash and says how blessed life is. Just saying …….

  8. Blondie says:

    Nope, not pregnant.
    Yup, still ugly.
    And crazy.
    And still wanting to be Brandi.

  9. michele says:

    yes – i think so – it’s the bloat in the face. I bet she is having a girl!
    This probably explains why she hasn’t been engaging in a twitter war with Brandy lately. She needs to keep calm.

  10. marie says:

    there’s a plumpness to her face but I dunno if that means she preggo, she could just be laying off the laxatives? she definitely looks better though..

    • Cam S says:

      Yup, Ed prolly told her no more Colace. She is retaining water. But this is almost what her normal weight was (before she tried slimming down) her face just has the extra fillers. Probably fresh fillers so puffy face.

      I could never or never want to try to be as thin as a formal model who is almost 6 feet tall. That would wreck havoc on my body. Leann may be finally learning to deal with her natural body type.

    • richard says:

      Poor Girl, I Believe She Likes Drama, Why Else Would You Want It To Consume Your Life. She Sounded A Little “CRA-CRA”!, In The Interview!.

  11. Eileen says:

    Come on Kaiser! Where’s is y’all’s deductive reasoning?? She gets called out about her laxative and adderol abuse, few days later she appears puffy and you guys think she’s pregnant?? How about she got busted taking drugs to keep her looking like a rail and had to stop taking them? When you stop taking them, the weight gain is immediate.

    • brin says:

      And these pregnancy rumors are great publicity for her, no?

    • The Original Mia says:

      Sounds about right.

    • Annie says:

      Too true Eileen. I’ve gotten into lots of online arguments over this issue before, but I really think that 95% of celeb “anorexia” is in fact NOT ANOREXIA at least not the nervosa type – it’s drug abuse. Take enough stimulants, and you would be skinny as a rail, even if you truely desired to be plump/voluptous, and even if the weight loss was in fact upsetting to you. You could have full on reverse-anorexia and still lose weight on the right drug combo. Anytime you see a celeb complaining that they can’t put on weight, yet past photos show them clearly heavier, think drugs. It’s quite likely that they really do wish they were heavier but can’t quit.

      • emmie_a says:

        Annie: Agree 100%. A friend of mine went to rehab a few years ago for Adderall addiction. She was suddenly rail thin and we found out later she was going to numerous doctors to get Adderall prescriptions.

      • anneesezz says:

        It’s true as far as having”eating disorder.” My best friend has been anorexic since we were about 13 years old. There’s a difference between starving yourself because you want to be super skinny and starving yourself because you see a fat person when you look in the mirror. LeAnn just wants to be skinny because that’s what her husband wants his wife to look like. It must be a total bummer to know your husband doesn’t love you for what’s on the inside. But considering her horrible personality I can see why.

      • Natalina says:

        i kno lots of girls who use stimulants to be thin. LOTS, i’ve known rimes was adderall junkie from the begining, the only way to lose weight that fast is pills

    • Blue says:

      Sadly that makes more sense and seems more likely than her actually getting preggo.

    • MerryHappy says:

      Actually, that’s inductive reasoning….
      Thanks evaluation of argumentation class!

    • CoolWhipLite says:

      @Eileen — you are so right! She took a pretend visit to rehab a while back…more like a REAL visit to a bed to sleep her way through the Adderall withdrawal.

      Has anyone ever proven that she has a full set of eyeballs?? God, I’ve always been irked by those black slits she has.

    • Sapphire says:

      I’m g oing with the not preggers vibe. Two reasons-bewbs aren’t bigger and she would NEVER be able to keep her mouth shut about it.

      The booties are the worst thing I have seen her wear. Peep toe booties should die.lace peep toes deserve to die. And Leann, honey, booties make your legs look stumpy. Don’t believe the PR you feed the tabs.

      • Ming Lee says:

        @sapphire- the boobs are what gives it away. leann is NOT pregnant..we saw her tiny little titty just this week when she purposely exposed it. pregnant = full boobies. leann = empty.

        those ankle booties are the worst. they just cut her off at the cankle, proof she pays the PR people to write fluffy pieces about her ‘long legs’ conveniently after they write up about brandi’s long legs. leann is so see through.

      • Theskinny says:

        Yep. Breasts are the first to show the signs. If she were pregnant she would sell that story IMMEDIATELY so she could start tweeting about her every hemorrhoid. If she got pregnant she would be that woman who acts like NO ONE EVER gave birth before SHE DID. RME

  12. malachais says:

    me too, I was thinking that as well. Bet she is pregnant and waiting for the first trimester to pass before announcing.

  13. Lulu says:

    Kaiser’s right, she does look pregnant. But I also agree with Eileen as to the cause.

    When you stop the laxatives you get super constipated and bloated because your body is addicted to the laxatives and you can’t ‘go’ without them. Occasionally I have to take opiate painkillers for horrible migraines a couple of days in a row which slow your intestines down and by the end of it I look 3 months pregnant, no kidding.

    I also wanted to say something about her eyes, even though it is out of place here. I don’t understand why everyone picks on her because of them. It would be like people picking on Asian’s eyes because of their epicanthic fold. She was born with hooded eyes and has chosen not to surgically change them. I kind of admire that about her. And who cares if she wears makeup that enhances them sometimes. It’s like she’s supposed to ashamed of what God gave her. Lord knows she’s changed enough about herself, I say leave her alone about her eyes. They are fine – cute even dare I say.

    ‘K, I’m done. :)

    • Jano1981 says:

      Thanks Lulu. I’m absolutely not a fan and I have made fun of her eyes. But yes you are right. I don’t mind hurting Leanns feeling so much as I don’t want other hooded/squinted eye people reading to feel negatively.

    • MerryHappy says:

      I agree about the physical bashing of her features. She has what she has. People get p’ed off if anyone calls Jessica Simpson fat. So she has smaller eyes. Aren’t there other things to judge her about? I even feel kind of bad for bashing the rhobh women (Brandi included) for what they’ve done INTENTIONALLY to their faces. It just isn’t nice. there are more important things in the works than looks.

    • Jayna says:

      Actually, I was the one that said that about her eyes and surgery. Now, I have always liked her look, so not one of these on here for the past two years bashing her eyes and face. I always thought she was a cute girl and had a sexiness about her, and her eyes were unique and a pretty blue and her personality made her even cuter back then. But anyone with that genetic trait, it only gets worse. At some point they do get surgery because it is so heavy over your eyes, but it is such a slippery slope. Eye lifts can have such a startled look, harsh looking, and in LeAnn’s case done wrong would change her look entirely, take away what made her unique. I did have friends get an eyelift and all three looked worse because the surgeon overdid it. But done just a little, like George Clooney had to do, and you can’t really tell. He told everybody he did it. It was that slight. It just lifts the lids off your eyes a bit while retaining the shape. Reba had to do it also, but I think she might have done too much at first until it relaxed.

      I tend to think medication is making them puffier anyway this past year. I remembered being on medication and my eyes being so swollen above that I looked ten years older. I quit the medication and it went away.

      But I shouldn’t have said anything, you’re absolutely right, because LeAnn needs to stop messing with her looks, since I think she looked very cute before Eddie when her obssession with her looks started happening, trying to be Brandi.

      I also want to state I really hate fillers. I saw Brandi on TV the other day in an interview Wendy Williams, and she is such a pretty girl but bordering on looking like cat woman if she doesn’t stop. In the interview, she couldn’t even smile like usual. It was like she had too much filler in her cheeks and lips too big. Even someone commeted on what did she do to her face. Women are looking so strange with all these overuse of face fillers and botox and blownup lips. Madonna ruined her face. So did Lindsay Lohan. Cheek implants, fillers. Some of these women should look at Angelina Jolie. She has a flat face and is stunning, no big apple cheeks.

  14. Shelly says:

    She doesn’t look pregnant to me, but she does look healthier. She looks good here. I like her dress and the “fug” booties.

  15. Rita says:

    Any hint that Rimes is pregnant is beyond the bounds of even the most wildly speculative gossip.

    She will never get pregnant by Eddie but if she should by some other means, she will rent the Goodyear blimp for 9 months and fly it over the LA basin with flashing lights announcing her pregnancy until we have to scramble fighter jets to shoot it down.

    Of course, we’ll get a C&D letter for that followed by a lawsuit for damages to her blimp.

  16. la chica says:

    She looks great. A little bit of ass might have her look perfect. I could even ignore the face. She’s eaten a few meals is all.

  17. Poink says:

    She stopped taking the adderall – that’s why she gained weight. I doubt she’s pregnant.

  18. apsutter says:

    Ya know, I think she might be!! She’s reminding me of Duchess Kate because her face is getting much fuller. I think pregnancy is the only way she would actually gain weight b/c we all know how hellbent she is on staying pin thin for Eddie.

  19. lizbet says:

    She is looking great for being LeAnn. Her face is just scary though. I was looking at the pics thinking, “hey, not so bad,” when I saw the full on face pics and cringed. Nothing hides crazy.

  20. Celeste says:

    That one video where she’s performing barefoot, and is rambling on while sitting on the floor… perhaps she was drunk. Perhaos she’s got some drinkers bloat these days…drinking more to deal with stress.

  21. tuva says:

    I don’t think she’s pregnant. But she does look better! Good for her. Keep that up, Leann

  22. Celeste says:

    Remember the recent video from her hometown performance where she’s performing barefoot and rambles on while sitting on the floor? Perhaps she was drunk. Perhaps she’s got some drinkers bloat these days. From drinking more to deal with stress.

  23. asdfg says:

    She always looks stoned! Lol!

  24. Em says:

    LeAnn is looking great. I hope she’s happy.

  25. the original bellaluna says:

    Her face is definitely…different-looking. It’s fuller. Or something. (Swelling from more plastic surgery? Or swelling from the alcohol? Or hypothetical-baby bloat?)

    Agree she needed (needs) to gain some weight, but can’t help but think the speculation will assist her back to the top of Adderall Mountain, straight to Laxative Cliff. (If she ever left, that is.)

  26. Mags says:

    I think she just has the body type where it doesn’t take her long to put weight on. She’s not naturally thin. She works hard to stay thin. Idk about pregnant, she did wear a very fitted dress at her first LV show, she didn’t look it then. Her face does look bloated though, it’s looked that way for a couple weeks now.

  27. Grace says:

    LeAnn does not seem to realize that Eddie bails when his women get pregnant. She probably thinks she’ll be able to have him around 24 hours a day.
    He is going to disppear while running “errands” for her.
    This is going to end badly.

  28. Meanchick says:

    I don’t think Falcor is preggers, but if she is, how much would you bet that Eddie & Brandi’s boys visits would be cut in half after Falcor hatches her own egg?

  29. bettyrose says:

    Is it weird to wear a skirt that short on stage? Couldn’t the front row just see right up it?

  30. Sara says:

    She looks happy here. She needs to stay off twitter and stay on stage.

  31. Maritza says:

    She looks great. I like the dress and the booties too.

  32. Ginger says:

    I agree she looks great with added weight. She looks far healthier. As for being preggo…maybe. It could also just be that the cut of that dress is unflattering to her. She definitely looks more filled out. Good for her!

  33. Stacie says:

    I hope she’s NOT pregnant. I just can’t stand her . I would see so sorry for that child if she were pregnant .

  34. Gisele says:

    It’s terrible to say and I’m ashamed of myself for sinking so low, but she has the most unfortunate looking face. I find her so very unattractive. I don’t know if my view of her is skewed by my feelings about her personality and bad behavior or not, but man, she’s not easy on the eyes.

  35. erika says:

    omg….’find your light leanne, like trya banks would say…find your light’ those last few pics make her look like a squealing lil piggy!

  36. Jayna says:

    I love the outfit and shoes. Her face is not her face. It’s so odd. Something has been put in her face or botox or something. A naturally fuller face made her look better not worse. so I tend to think something unnatural is going on, filler, botox, etc.

    Post that photo of her and Eddie and the bonus boys at the Batman red carpet just three months ago. I have to admit she looked really cute. Her skin looked actually really great and little makeup and a cute outfit for the movies. She looked young, her age, not older. Then you cut to three months later and her face in all these appearances and it’s shocking. She looks like a 40-year-old woman whose face is aged because of alcohol and cigarettes like someone on here posted.

    I thought she looked fine on her E Network interview and now I found out it was shot back in the summer. So that’s why she looks more like herself and not like this photo and the NoH8 photos and the awards show red carpet, etc, of the past two weeks, where her face looked odd and much older.

    I saw the photo she posted on twitter that someone took of Eddie being very affectionate with his arms wrapped around her, kind of a candid pic. I have to say he looked happy and being sweet to her, not like all these other photos, staged. I guess we will never know what goes on behind closed doors regarding how he feels about her.

  37. claire says:

    Hard to say. She fluctuates a lot, because the rail-thin thing she’s been doing isn’t natural for her. She goes thru these periods all the time where her face fills out, and add in the botox, and you’ve got a puffy weird fat-face going on. If she is pregnant, I feel sorry for that child already. I’d also feel sorry for Brandi. If Eddie cheats/leaves her, Brandi would be scot-free. No more dealing with psycho Leann. If she has a baby, she’ll be stuck with her the rest of her life, as then half-siblings would be involved.

    • Jayna says:

      Well, that’s one way to look at it. I don’t think he’s getting snipped any time soon. I doubt you have to worry. LeAnn was with Dean for years and always said they talked about it for the future and never got pregnant. I don’t think she was pining for a kid. Of course, she’s hitting 30 now, so time to think about it. Bt she’s so insecure about him right now cheating and obssessed with being a hot wife, I doubt she wants to be pregnant any time soon and not have a skinny body for him.

      Another way to look at it is it appears Brandi will be making more than Eddie. So with him making not much money a year and off now in an apartment, etc., pffff. Her child support is gone.

    • deehunny says:

      I never thought of that- Brandi would be stuck with Leanne for the rest of her life if he has kids with her. That’s a terrible thought!

      I do think she wants a baby to keep Eddie but also doesn’t want to gain the weight because Eddie will leave her. So, my guess is Beyoncé fake bump surrogate.

  38. Jayna says:

    Someone posted on youtube a video of like a collage of videos and photographs of them as a couple hooked together to her song Right Kind of Wrong. It’s interesting to see what she looked like for the first year or more compared to now these current photos.


  39. kudzuqueen says:

    I just said on another site that I have noticed her wearing a lot of black lately, and she normally stays away from darker colors. Maybe she wants us to just think she is pregnant? Her face is definately fuller, like mine got during my pregnancies.

    A comment on adderall: it will initially make you very skinny (not all people) but then the rebound…. Yes you gain it all back.

  40. Barbara says:

    She used to be overweight as a teen, at least that is my memory of her. I hope they have a baby, then Brandi won’t feel so threatened.

  41. Sonia says:

    If she were knocked up she would have rubbed her belly for the entire concert.

  42. I STILL get preggo vibes, I don’t give a sh-t what ya’ll think.

  43. skuddles says:

    I dunno… if she were preggers I’m sure she would have been braying about it non stop right from the very moment she conceived.

    I think she’s probably just drinking her face off and the weight gain is really booze bloat.

  44. beclove says:

    @Jayna- thanks for posting that- I would guess those pictures were at least 10 years old after looking at Leann and Eddie today if I didn’t know the timeline.

    No fan of Leann but I hope she gets real help before considering having a baby. We all see how he treats the mother of his children. You don’t have kids with guys like this IMO.

  45. I.want.shoes says:

    I doubt she is with foal.

  46. candigirl says:

    LMAO I.want.shoes
    The quickest way to push Eddie out the door is to get pregnant and have the baby. I doubt he wants more kids, he shows no interest or concern for the ones he already has. My guess is she is playing with the rumors to try to put the pressure on him to change his mind. But if she gets pregnant, he leaves her for the current mistress.

  47. la chica says:

    She’s not pregnant. She went for semi-inpatient treatment of her eating disorder. If she has stopped abusing laxatives and Adderrall, this would be the natural result. She looks good.

  48. april says:

    She definitely has gained some weight and her face is fuller. I think the shoes are really cute.

  49. Marisa says:

    I admit that I watched her E! special. I still don’t have any sympathy for her, and thought that she tried to come across as a victim.
    I like the shoes. The dress is fug.

  50. Stephanie says:

    She is very unfortunate looking. I can’t believe all the attention she gets just because she can sing well. Amazing.

  51. Silly Smart says:

    She’s grinning like Jack Nicolson did in Batman. Crazy person.

  52. K-rock says:

    Adderall causes constipation, hence the laxatives. I wonder if its her body re adjusting to being without the drugs.

  53. lindy loo says:

    Nah, don’t think she looks preggo, just consistently ugly.

  54. Jessica says:

    I don’t believe for a second she is preggers. I don’t believe Ed would knowingly knock her up and create a connection to her like that for life. Look at the man in their pics over the last several months, the man looks miserable. I know every woman is different but my preggo bloat was out of control for a good several weeks in the early stages (before I ever had an actual “bump”) and NO WAY would I have worn something as revealing as what she wore to that NOH8 event. She is seeing the preggo rumors and simply fueling the fire by wearing something like this. I’m with Eileen, she got busted w/the laxatives and had to cut them. Its not a coincidence we are seeing her gain weight after that comes out.

    That all said she DOES look healthier then she has looked in years. The fuller face to me, looks like fresh fillers combined w/bloat from dropping the laxatives.

  55. Natalina says:

    while u all lookin at the belly, im lookin at that face WTF Happened ???

  56. Natalina says:

    that mic must stink after every show

  57. Natalina says:

    im so glad brandi called her out, she shouldnt abuse adderall, there are people with terrible ADHD who need that medication that she’s eatin up

  58. Memphis says:

    Her face looks fuller, but I don’t think shes pregnant. She would have to be off her meds for that to happen.

    Her face looks un-naturally bloated and puffy. And it happened so fast.. I think it’s more from bad fillers/botox and suddenly stopping her laxatives and adderall.

    I also think as soon as Eddie mentions anything about her weight gain she will be back on her laxatives and adderall in a quest to be thin enough for him.

  59. Wanda Full says:

    I don’t see why everyone thinks Eddie wouldn’t want a baby. I mean, wouldn’t having a kid = child support for the next 18 years?

  60. Oyn says:

    She is starting to look normal again. I actually think the boots work too! lol. Doubt she is pregnant. The little bit of puffiness is either from psychotropic meds or maybe even restylane.

  61. K-rock says:

    Her face doesn’t match her body. *shudders*

  62. Melissa says:

    Good Lord, it’s like she hit every branch on the ugly tree.

    She was so cute before she started with all those surgeries. Now, she doesn’t even look human.

  63. Tinka says:

    I don’t, but you really can’t tell with that dress. Every time a celeb wears a bit looser outfit, the pregnancy rumours start…
