LeAnn Rimes sued her dentist for allegedly shoddy work over the course of 3 years

Over the years, LeAnn has used “dental drama” as an excuse to get out of lots of things. When she was on Twitter 24 hours a day, she would often complain of toothaches and dentist appointments, and she used those excuses to get out of concerts, appearances and just for plain sympathy. I always thought she was playing up the drama because… you know, she’s a drama queen. Like, she would cancel an appearance and complain of the flu or a toothache or something and then hours later she would be tweeting photos from the beach. Well, as it turns out… she might have actually been having genuine dental drama! LeAnn just sued her dentist.

LeAnn Rimes is suing her dentist, claiming he botched up her mouth so bad … it’s messing up her career.

In the lawsuit … obtained by TMZ … Rimes claims she went to Dr. Duane C. McKay for various dental work over 3 years. Some of the work included upper front veneers and crowns that the dentist promised would address her TMJ-related pain as well as improve her appearance.

Rimes claims rather than helping, the dentist messed her mouth up bad, causing tremendous pain and bleeding. Back in October, she tweeted, “I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat.”

Rimes says she’s had to undergo 9 root canals and bone grafting. She’s also had a temporary bridge and needed physical therapy as well.

Rimes says in the suit she will have a “permanent cosmetic deficiency.”

Rimes says the dental work is so bad it has been screwing with her career … impeding her ability to perform.

In her malpractice lawsuit, LeAnn is seeking unspecified damages for physical, emotional and psychiatric injuries. She also wants money for loss of past and future earnings.

[From TMZ]

I don’t really understand how front veneers could lead to 9 root canals, etc, but please don’t even describe it to me dental-know-it-alls. I have a gag reflex about certain things, and dental drama is one of them (one of my other gag reflexes: stories about childbirth). I need to get my wisdom teeth taken out but every year I put it off because the just the thought of it makes me want to vom. As for LeAnn… I actually do have sympathy for this. But you would think that after just SOME of that drama, she would have tried a different dentist, right? But she loves to sue people. I’m surprised that she didn’t serve her dentist with a cease & desist too.

    9 root canals, that’s not for cosmetic purposes. That’s more related to poor dental hygiene.

    • Aud says:

      Either that or she’s a closet bulimic and her teeth are rotted from the digestive acids. I’m thinking the latter.

    • jess says:

      Just a quicky (don’t gag!)…to put veneers/caps on, the original tooth basically needs to be filed to a little nub, so I can totally see how properly…um installed? veneers could lead to root problems in the mouth. It makes me cringe just thinking about it.

      Caps wouldn’t/shouldn’t erode from stomach acid. They aren’t made from the same chemical structure as teeth.

      • Rinny says:

        Little nubs?!?! No!! I have veneers on my front two teeth (white & beige stains from anti-biotic meds as a child)- and watched each step of the process. They filed very little off of my teeth and this was so I wouldn’t have thick bucky the beaver teeth!

        If they filed her teeth down to NUBS – she had other issues!!

        LeAnn the crazy train boards in 10 minutes!!!

      • Jenny says:

        Maybe for purely cosmetic veneers, but my father has caps on his teeth and they were filed down almost completely, similar to a root canal with a full cap. Every once in a while a cap has come off and it looks like he is missing a tooth.

      • dentalgirl says:

        When getting veneers, teeth are not ground down to “little nubs.” When getting crowns/caps, yes the teeth are reduced greatly for a crown to be done.

        9 root canals? I can’t imagine why she would need root canals unless she had decay. When prepping teeth for crowns, ALL decay must be removed. So if she had decay on top of needing crowns I can see teeth blowing up from the trauma. Is that the dentist’s fault? Maybe, Maybe Not. None of us know what condition her mouth was in prior to this alleged sloppy dental work.

        Veneers are done for cosmetic reasons only. Leann had spaces between her teeth so I can only assume that’s why she got veneers done. Teeth are prepped slightly for veneers but certainly they aren’t ground down to little nubs.

        The question is, Why did she need said Dental Work?

        There has been speculation for years of Leann having an eating disorder. With Bulimia the lingual (back) of her teeth would be greatly eroded, depending on how long she’s been bulimic, if in fact she is. Also there is the binging factor of bulimia. Usually binges consist of high fat and high sugar foods. If the teeth are already compromised, due to erosion, what a PERFECT STORM for ANY dental work to fail.

        With erosion due to chemicals (vomiting acids)veneers wouldn’t work PERIOD on her front teeth. Veneers cover the anterior (front) part of the teeth.

        When I read this story I thought, “NINE root canals?” So either her dentist is, in fact negligent. OR Leann has some SERIOUS dental problems, hygiene or whatever.

        So, this should be interesting. Can’t wait to find out what condition her teeth were in prior to this dental work.

        If she does have an eating disorder…. She should think twice about a lawsuit because all of that will come out. I, personally, find this whole thing hard to believe.

        If this dentist performed unnecessary dental work on Ms Rimes, wow… That kind of thing gives dentistry a bad name. Could be like MJ’s doctors. Starstruck, if you want to call Leann a star.

        We will see….

      • CatLovr says:

        I have veneers and there was no shaving the teeth down to the nub. In fact, that’s what’s so great about veneers, there is no need to destroy the underlying tooth.

        Caps were the method before veneers and when someone got caps on their teeth, they had to be filed down, but veneers are just a thin porcelain cover that slips over the front of the tooth.

        When I had my veneers done, my dentist didn’t have to do anything to my natural teeth underneath.

    • Stuart Horsely says:

      Could also be too much bingeing and purging. Stomach acid is hell on your teeth.

    • littlestar says:

      Nine root canals seems like a lot! I would agree that it might be due to poor dental hygiene and/or genetics. I’ve inherited my poor teeth from my father and with proper cleaning, I only have a couple of cavities and have had one root canal (at some point I will need braces, but I keep putting it off :( . Does anyone have any experience with Invisalign braces? Ever tried them? Do they work?).

      Or maybe the dentist really is shady and did unnecessary work to Leann’s mouth. With all the drama surrounding her though, it’s kind of hard to see things from her side. You’d think one bad experience with a dentist would have her seeking a second opinion at the very least…

      • lorajo says:

        I haven’t used Invisalign myself (I did braces the old-fashioned way), but my cousin has been using them and really likes them.

      • Ash says:

        I am about to have root canals #2 and 3 in two weeks. Mine are from grinding at night and clenching when I’m mad or stressed at work; I’ve cracked the enamel in myteeth so I can’t chew anything or eat anything sweet or drink cold things.
        When you think about it, maybe the stress of her situation (being a crazy jump off and getting called out for it at every chance by Brandi) is causing it.
        I don’t feel badly for her, you know she loves not being able to eat. Personally, I miss chewing solid foods…can’t a girl get a chicken leg!

      • Evelyn says:

        Littlestar: I never had Invisalign, but I did a program called six month smiles. The brackets were clear and the band was tooth colored. They’re not very noticeable, and the average time you wear then is 3 to 9 months. Thu don’t fix bite problems, they just straighten your teeth. But my teeth were SO bad, and now they’re so straight I can’t believe it. Look into it! They’re a little less than regular braces

      • littlestar says:

        Thank you so much for the responses, laides :) ! I am definitely going to look into these clear braces and Invisalign. If either become an option for me, it would be nice not to have to go with standard metal braces!

      • kellybean says:

        LittleStar: I don’t have invisalign but am in the process of getting them (my insurance is covering half and my fiance’s insurance is covering the other half – YAY!). My teeth aren’t that bad, just a few spaces in between some teeth & a slight overbite. I don’t know if I would have gone the metal route if that was the only option but since invisalign is covered by our insurance, I figured why not. Apparently, you can also whiten using the invisalign trays so that’s probably what I will be doing. I say you should ask your dentist and he can show you some pictures of results…or check pics online – there are quite a number.

      • apsutter says:

        Weird that you’re asking today because I just realized a girl I know at school has invisalign! It’s not even noticeable and she said its a little painful but that’s typical. I had braces for a long time as a kid and I wish that invisalign had been an option then because they were awful.

        Also I had to get a root canal on one of my front teeth that we believed was from assistants at the orthodontist’s office. My dentist asked if there had been any trauma to my teeth because he didn’t see any decay and the only thing I could think of is how these mean women would just be PULLING on my teeth(I had really messed up teeth.) He said that he’s seen a lot of people need a root canal or two after braces. Made me furious because now that tooth is darkening and I don’t have dental insurance to get a cap for it.

      • SageM says:

        My ex husband had invisalign. You really can’t tell they’re on, and they really work. They are an expensive option but certainly worth it if you can afford them.

      • LAK says:

        9 Root canals!!! Jeesh. I was so completely traumatised by dental visits as a child that i developed full blown phobia.

        We are talking uncontrolled shaking, nausea, sweats etc all whist my body is completely tense and rigid. And that’s at the examination stage. When they bring out the drills, I’ve been known to faint.

        I avoid the dentist at all costs. I make sure that i look after my teeth so that i never have to go see them unless it’s an emergency, and there is a sedative involved.

      • Dinah says:

        Ash,

        I am a nighttime bruxist, but have worn a night splint on my lower teeth for about a dozen years. Only one crown currently- the mate tooth on other side is slightly cracked, but I am told to wait until it’s symptomatic. I’m close to 50, have probably done this all my life.

        See a dentist for a custom splint, or try a moldable one from the drugstore!
        Save your teeth/jaw joints!

      • Dani V says:

        I wanted to do invisilign but they told me not all people are the right fit for them so I ended up w/braces. Luckily all is done and my teeth look great now. But boy when I was going through it I sure envied those who could use invisilign.

      • nhi says:

        that doctor, is actually brandi’s dentist for the last 17 years, and this is what brandi tweeted. “My dentist of 17 yrs Dr. Duane McKay who has done 5 root canals, 2 bridges and completely fixed my TMJ- whom I LOVE is PERFECT ask 007″

    • Veronica says:

      As someone in the dental field, yes poorly done veneer preparations can lead too root canals. An attempt to change shape or position too much can put you close or into the nerve requiring a root canal. So not to stick up for her but I could easily see this happening

    • joan says:

      this nut job is sue-happy. wish the judge would make her pay for all court costs for all her law=suits. 3 YEARS she went to him, did she not know how to find another dentist.PLEASE PLEAE FOR ALL THAT’S WRONG IN THE WORLD AND FOR ALL THE REAL SUFFERING GOING ON—MAKE HER GO AWAY. go live in your mansion with your paid for companion and STFU

    • mrs j says:

      She should Sue her plastic surgeon for that face of her’s

      • jilly says:

        She has a looooong history of suing ppl to include members of her own family. But I can’t help wondering if the dentist came on her shit list because Brandi made such vicious fun of her veneers in her book. Also ‘The Soup’ recently showed a clip of a horse playing a recorder and Joel McHale called it Leann Rimes. The shade. This poor woman gets told daily by the world that she is ugly. Surely she must know deep inside that Eddiot is only with her for her money. Will she sue him when it eventually runs out?

    • Samantha says:

      If she has TMJ, she could be grinding her teeth, which causes the enamel to wear down and leads to cracks and other problems.

      I’ve had four root canals all related to bruxism.

    • cadetpink says:

      Yeah, that’s probably from either bulimia or from having chronic dry mouth from medications. I’ve had so much drilling done you’d think there’s oil in my gums. 12 Crowns, (ripped up old fillings during seizures, which makes ‘landmines’), 4 crown-lenghtenings, which hurt like no other, have 1 bridge and there are still ongoing issues but my dentist (now) is amazing when it comes to matching and as far as the veneers, that’s cosmetic so I dont see where her negligence is some other dentists fault. I also had a dentist fill 12 cavities as a child that werent cavities, but they turned into them after time.

      She is an idiot…

      • cadetpink says:

        p.s get a good dentek mouth-gaurd. they make the best ones with two pads that just sit on your molars and there’s no suction created like with full-cover mouth guards. The pads are attached to a very thin clear plastic ‘track’ that sits in the area around the bottom teeth between the lip and gums. You can get two for 50 bucks, and totally worth the investment (I grind like crazy and have tried custom molds but they irritate my gums or turn into ‘sucking toys’ which can further damage your teeth…

  2. brin says:

    Let’s just change her name to SueAnn Rimes, professional sewer (yes, I mean sewer).

  3. eska says:

    She also need to sue her haidresser for that bang…

  4. MonicaQ says:

    Just rip em out and get dentures. Problem. Solved.

  5. Rose says:

    Wow, if that’s the truth I feel really sorry for her, I’ve had 3 root canals and after the last one I swore NEVER again. The procedure is no that bad but it’s so sore afterwards.
    I’m with you though, I’m not sure how veneers can lead to root canals unless he just gave her bad advice?

    • Jenny says:

      Ugh. I had a botched root canal and the pain was IMMENSE; pain level comparable to contractions in childbirth.

      I actually feel really bad for her if this is true.

      • littlestar says:

        I’ve had one root canal and it was the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced in my life too! It was almost 15 years ago, and people say root canal procedures aren’t as painful anymore, but who the heck knows! Even with freezing, I was sweating so badly from the pain, and I wanted to scream and kick the dentist in his knackers! Ironically enough, I needed the root canal because the tooth got an infection from a filling done by the same dentist a week earlier :S.

    • BW says:

      I put off having a root canal on a front tooth because I’d heard horror stories for years. Mine was painless. Granted, I had a good dental surgeon and my tooth didn’t hurt to start with. My surgeon told me that the root canal only hurts if the tooth hurt beforehand and the surgery was postponed too long. If you do it before you get a toothache, then the root canal doesn’t hurt. I don’t know how true that is, but it was true for me. I knew I was in for a good experience when even the shot with the numbing agent didn’t hurt.

    • Erinn says:

      I had one almost a year ago now. I had to get a post added which was pretty traumatizing. It wasn’t so bad pain wise but I was literally clutching to my seat so tensed up. I was terrified. I need to get another I think, and it’s a tooth that has multiple roots… I think I’m just going to pull it and get a nesbit denture to replace that tooth. It’s my second last molar, so nobody is going to really notice anyway.

    • Lady D says:

      Part of the torture I endured as a child involved my ‘mother’ forcing my mouth open and banging a crescent wrench back and forth across my teeth, or up and down on them. This was a regular occurrence. I also wasn’t allowed to brush my teeth. She caught once when I was 14 brushing them and she beat me so bad I had to stay home from school for 10 days. I quit brushing them after that. When I graduated at 17 I had all these black rotten stumps hanging down where my teeth should have been. I moved 500 miles away and worked two jobs for a year to pay for my dental work. I ended up getting 6 root canals from a specialist in Vancouver. The root canals didn’t hurt at all but my face was a giant bruise for 2 weeks. i ended up losing my teeth anyway and have been wearing a denture since I was 19. Thanks Mom.

      • lady mary. says:

        @lady D,that is way beyond painful,i hope ur better now

      • SusieQ2 says:

        There are no words. Hugs to you Lady D. x

      • littlestar says:

        Lady D, that is F’ing horrible! So happy to hear you got away from her and were able to get the help you need.

      • Mich says:

        At first I was thinking ‘this must be snark leading up to a punchline’ but by the end it was clear you really went through this.

        I’m literally crying for the child you were and am so happy that you managed to escape. Dentures or not, I hope you wear your smile with pride.

        As long as I live, I don’t think I will ever forget the story you have shared with us today.

      • RosettaStoned says:

        My mom was abusive too, but nothing like that, how horrible. She wouldn’t let me lose weight, like if I tried to eat healthy she would mock me in front of her friends, tell them I must be on drugs, and then when I did manage to lose 20 lbs one summer (age 14) she took me to the doctor to have me ‘tested’ for anorexia/bulimia, and made him test me for drugs. After we left she threatened to have me committed to the local juvenile mental health facility for being ‘obsessed’ with being thin (I was a junior’s size 11…please). I think our mom’s must have been jealous of us on top of being crazy. I am sorry for what you went through ::HUGS::

      • Samigirl says:

        I want to hug you in the worst way. Mental hugs, Lady D. You are a very strong lady. Thank you for sharing that with us. I am SO sorry your “mother” did those things to you. <3

      • candigirl says:

        Sorry for your pain LadyD and Rosetta :(

      • Rita says:

        I wish I could share my mother with all of you whose mother was so bad. I do hope your lives are good now and free of the childhood scars.

      • Lady D says:

        Thanks so much for the kind words all of you. My childhood was a living hell. I actually have a 7 year gap in my memory. It’s like I didn’t exist from about 5 till I was 12. My mother used to tell me 6 times a day or more how ugly I was and how stupid I was. When I was 13 she added the f word and I became so effing ugly and so effing stupid. I believed her. One day when I was 30 I walked past a mirror and glanced in. What I saw literally stopped me right in my tracks. I wasn’t ugly. I mean really, I wasn’t ugly. Those 2 moments in a mirror sent me to a shrink to find out what other delusions I had been living my life with.
        I turned out ok. Not bragging here, I’m kind, generous, loving, funny and I love my son with all my heart. My shrink wanted to interview him when he was 4. I got a glowing report on my mothering skills. (I was so worried) I just did the opposite of what my mother did and my son turned out awesome. (yes, I’m bragging here) I do suffer from depression occasionally. The dentist is the worst, not because I had a bad experience ever, but because I start suffering flashbacks. I was diagnosed with PTSD a few years ago. Not really much I can do about it, just stay strong and practice coping skills. My doc wants to hypnotize me to help me recall those missing years. I said no. As far as I am concerned, those years were obviously so bad my mind completely blanked those years. The way I see it, I lived through it once, there is no way I’m doing it a second time. I would rather those years stay lost to tell the truth. And Rita, I would have given anything to have a mother that loved me. I so wish I could share yours. Everyday I get reminded of what I did’t have. They say you can’t miss what you don’t have. That’s not really true. If you love your mother, tell her so. Good mothers are a rare breed.

      • Dani V says:

        Dear Lord, that story brought tears to my eyes. I hope you are living life well now. You must be an incredibly strong individual to have survived such abuse. So sorry for the pain you have endured.

      • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

        All the best to you Lady D – warm wishes- that you survived this to raise a well adjusted happy son is a credit to you :)

      • Eileen says:

        LadyD: I am horrified women exist like that in the world. My mother was verbally abusive-but nothing like what you endured. You talking about what you went through and moving along with your life shows that you are truly an amazing woman. I’m humbled that I got to read your story. Thank you for sharing it.

  6. daisydoodle says:

    root canals from rotting teeth, ie vomiting, could be the cause. Also, bone grafting might be done, d/t anemia, and weak bone stucture/malnutrition…don’t blame the dentist, blame thyself….

  7. me says:

    Didn’t Brandi recently make fun of her “OVERSIZED” teeth….perhaps that’s the catalyst??

  8. RHONYC says:

    *DEEPLY CHUCKLING COVERING MY MOUTH*

    Kaiser, i’m sick as f*ck at work with the flu but leave it to your twisted behind to post that crazy pic of Le-Haw looking like Falkor’s twin sister! :lol:

    her face looks as painful as i feel. :-( *cough*

  9. kitkerenina says:

    And this makes lawsuit number ????

    Yeah, keep on suing and railing against people with real jobs, lives, and families. Nice.

  10. Happymom says:

    I had to have gum grafts and they were more painful than drug free births-so I have sympathy for anyone who has to go through dental work: ugh. That said-I really think her mouth/teeth have changed so much because she’s had a TON of cosmetic work done.

  11. Katie says:

    If she were making herself throw up, it could damage her enamel and lead to all this dental drama. But I guess if that is true, then that will come up in the proceedings. Her teeth don’t look terrible (they’re not the old Hilary Duff horse veneers) so is this the guy’s work or did she go elsewhere to get everything fixed?

  12. Luxe says:

    I never get tired of that top photo.

  13. Amsterdam says:

    O no she didnt…She wouldnt dare..I hope her dentist has recorded records of here crying for ‘nicer’ teeth.HAHA im shore he/she has!!

  14. judyjudy says:

    I’ve had poor dental work that led to expensive and painful re-work. It sucks/sucked. Who knows if LeAnn is just being dramatic but if it’s even part way true I feel bad for her.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      Yup, me too. And my former dentist screwed it all up when I was just 21-22. Then I found a great one and she was appalled by what was going on in my mouth. It’s just awful. That being said, none of it was for cosmetic purposes so … yeah. I feel for her but not too much.

      Incidentally, I have 3 effin’ appointments next week to get the rest fixed. Ugh. It’s a miracle that I still have all my teeth.

  15. Susie Q says:

    Oh honey, it ain’t the teeth causing “permanent cosmetic deficiency.”

  16. LeeLoo says:

    Methinks LeAnn’s money is starting to run out. She’s getting very sue happy these days.

  17. natalina says:

    do you know why so many good doctors are in debt and why our healthcare costs so much? Because she sue them for malpractice for COSMETIC reasons and this hurts our country and economy
    I DESPISE leann RIMES

  18. truthful says:

    TRUST me, that damn dentist is NOT ruining her career, SHE is…

    I laughed sooo loud at that first pic, and now I keep scrolling back up to chuckle at it.

    you guys are full of hell!!

    AND I LOVE IT!!

  19. Ok says:

    Guys all the conjecture on bulemia. My aunt had to have something similar done. It was not from bulemia and it was absolutely not from bad hygiene. She lost bone mass in her jaw and it affected her whole mouth.

    On a side note, soon after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

    If her mouth is giving out like that, it might be a precursor to serious health problems that have not been diagnosed.

  20. jlo1982 says:

    root canals are for abcesses, not from hygiene problems and you wouldn’t need them for veneers

  21. why? says:

    Why did this lawsuit come now? The same day she moved into the mansion with Eddie and the same week that Brandi is doing promotions for her book.

    This is nothing more than just another attempt to overshadow the attention Brandi is getting for her book and keep her name in the press. We all expected Leann to go the pregnancy route or annouce that she was going sue Brandi. Leann isn’t suing the dentist for messing up her mouth and ruining her career, she is suing this guy to keep herself relevant and to get back at Brandi. The dentist Leann is suing is Brandi’s dentist. This very same dentist was mentioned in ROL write up about how Leann obsesses over Brandi and goes out of her way to use the same people Brandi does.

    In the process of suing this dentist, Leann also gets money to pay off that mansion she bought for Eddie. So this lawsuit also means that Leann’s funds are getting low. She is looking for ways to replenish it. Now she has 2 lawsuits. Why does Leann keep getting away with things like this?

    Why does the media keep falling for Leann’s scams? This is the “30 day stint” in rehab again. Leann’s staged photo-ops and tweets already make it obvious that she is lying about the pain. After this so called “dental pain and bleeding” Leann was on beaches drinking and partying or tweeting photos of herself with Brandi’s kids.

    I hope that the dentist doesn’t give into Leann or the pressure she is creating by releasing these articles depicting herself as the victim. Leann is good at scamming the media. They fall for her scams everytime even though the evidence in her staged photo-ops and twitpic makes it very obvious that she was lying about the pain.

  22. Robot Rosie says:

    I went through similar things with my teeth – my old dentist was a hack and when I got veneers I then had to get a root canal because he whittled my tooth down too close to the root and I’ve been in and out of a new dentist office for years trying to fix the veneers I did get. I actually just had to have them all replaced and have parts of my gums removed…. Recovering from that now… Which has been lovely.

    Oh, and my old dentist was sued by 4-5 other clients and went bananas and quit his practice so clearly this is not uncommon.

    Other than that… Who really knows Leann’s real story? I mean, she does love attention (and im not a fan of her) but that’s a lot of stuff to put out there for public scrutiny if it’s not at all true.

    • why? says:

      Leann’s staged photo-ops. After having one those dental procedures, later that same day Leann was photographed by AKM-GSI on a balcony in a bikini drinking alcohol while Lizzy and Elisa rubbed her down with sun tan lotion. Leann is a scam artist and she is going to keep doing things like this because she knows that people will give into her demands.

      After canceling a concert due to “pain and bleeding”, the very next day Leann was spotted by a “source” at Katsuya with Eddie and his kids. She was drinking and spent the entire night talking to Eddie. There are tons of examples like this. Which makes it odd that the media is falling for this scam.

      Common factor in all these stories: Leann was drinking. It wasn’t the dentist who caused the problem. It’s Leann using alcohol immediately after the procedure or when she is claiming that she is in pain/bleeding.

      How come this pain and bleeding never shows up when she is exploiting Brandi’s kids or while she was on vacation in Cabo with Eddie? The pain and bleeding always fell on those days when Eddie wouldn’t go on tour with her or he was set to party with his friends without Leann.

      • Lady D says:

        It shouldn’t be at all difficult for the dr’s lawyer to find pictures of her drinking after each and every procedure. Falkor made sure they were everywhere. Methinks her nonstop bikini shots may just come back to bite her in the ass.

      • why? says:

        Not only the bikini photos but there are tons of photos of Leann heavily kissing Eddie after claiming that she was in too much pain/bleeding to attend her concerts. What is up with “dental pain/bleeding” that completely goes away when Leann needs to set up PDA photo-ops with her cheating husband or pose for AKM-GSI in a bikini on a beach?

        The sad part is that the dentist will probably give into Leann’s demands without fighting it just to make Leann stop feeding these biased stories to the press. Leann already thinks that she is won, she is on twitter already advertising another staged photo-op.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      At what point in the process, do you come to the realization that your dentist sucks? In your case,Robot Rosie, You obviously realized the dentist you had was no good, and found a better dentist to fix the issues. It just seems odd that after the first couple of problems she wouldn’t have questioned the quality of the dentist and at at least consulted another one. 3 years seems like a long time. It makes me wonder if she hasn’t picked up a possible pain med addiction in the process too. It could explain some of her crazy behavior,and the canceling of concerts, etc. (along with the alcohol of course.) It definitely sounds to me like she is hurting for money.

      • chopps says:

        I thought e same with the pain meds….opiates yscan cause decreased appetite but a craving for sweets which leads to increase to tooth decay = root canals…and in turn root canals lead to pain medication….i worked with a woman who actually had dental work done for pain meds… :/

    • Zooyork says:

      If someone opts to get cosmetic surgery, they should research the risks, research the doctor/clinic.

  23. Tig says:

    If she think Brandi is a pain, just wait till the dentist’s malpractice carrier’s lawyer gets ahold of her-!

  24. Elizabeth says:

    I don’t know what she’s been doing but I do know that certain medications can cause dental problems. I was on Remicade and after being on it a few months I developed a HUGE dental abscess and had to have a root canal and a bone graft – but I had crowns on the teeth that went bad. I practice VERY good dental hygiene due to what I had been thru getting the crowns and such. While I don’t care for LR at all (I think she’s an adulterer and homewrecker) this one may not be her fault.

    • kudzuqueen says:

      Well, she is taking something for her psoriasis, by her own admission. I looked up Stelara on WebMD, a medication for the treatment of psoriasis and found the following:

      This medication can affect your immune system. It can lower your body’s ability to fight an infection. You may be more likely to get serious infections, such as pneumonia, bone/joint infections, skin infections, or sinusitis. It may also be harder to fight an infection you already have. Tell your doctor promptly if you develop any signs of an infection, such as worsening redness/swelling/tenderness at the injection site after 2 days, fever/chills, or cold/flu symptoms. (See also Precautions section.)

  25. Helvetica says:

    The first pic made me laugh.
    The second pic is a fright.

    Her face is so strange.

  26. diva says:

    I actually feel bad for her. I can’t deal with ANY pain wit my teeth. I hate the dentist! Had so many bad experiences. I finally found a great one within the last year. I still hate the experience but love him! Don’t understand why she didn’t go see another dentist though?

    • Jayna says:

      I had a dental procedure gone wrong where it doubled in time, hours, and literally I was shaking in the chair and praying to God to get through it as they had cemented my crown in wrong and I was ignored the the assistant as I kept saying the bite was wrong. By the time the assistant got the dentist over the bonding cement had taken hold. It was like they were feverishly hammering away and sandblasting and drilling to get it back off. I was so traumatized I thought I wanted to die during it.

  27. dorothy says:

    I guess when your not working sueing is the way to generate cash. How many lawsuits is this now?

  28. Theresa says:

    Just like anything that she does, I will wait and see if she wins. If she had a problem even once before the three years passed, she had the responsibility to change dentists immediately. But if you continue to go to the same practitioner even though you claim the work was shoddy, than you are an idiot. Or a liar. Hmmmm. Which makes me think, when you see people call you out for using the lame excuse of dental drama, your recourse (to protect yourself from being found a liar) is you sue a legitimate business, than, well, who has a history of doing this…

    So. Either she is a liar and a vicious plaintiff (see bogus lawsuit against the teacher) or she is so stupid for continuing to see a shoddy dentist who was clearly scamming her of her money and her dental health.

    Either way, she gets no sympathy from me.

    • Relli says:

      Precisely my thoughts as well. If you have a bad experience with a doctor or a dentist you switch immediately. I know that often times some practitioners will offer a discount or a free chance to fix the mistake but its an independent decision to continue going back after botched service.

      Yesterday Jezebel ran this story and i was interested in reading the comments becuase its not a site that offer a lot of LeAnn coverage. Basically all of them were like no one goes back to a bad practitioner for three years unless its a Dr. Feelgood situation and pretty much unanimously agreed that her career is over. I think the secret may be out.

    • Lucy says:

      Why the hell did she carry on going to him for three years? I had issues with my dentist last year when she didn’t do a filling properly I went back for her to fix it then swapped dentist haven’t been back.

      He should have wired her damn mouth shut and save us a lot of bother, but I suppose with her chronic tweeting problem she doesn’t need her mouth for communication

      • kristine says:

        Sometimes you give the dentist the bennefit of the doubt. Sometimes you believe them, that there is an adjustment time. Sadly it took me a cracked tooth from a simple filling =root canal and another root canal to cause me to seek another dentist. I have very tight contacts between my teeth and they are hard to fill but botch me once and I think okay it could happen, botch me twice and see you later. the three years could have been ongoing corrections till she finally wised up to say you aren’t fixing this, especially if appointments were months apart.
        Incidentally with my new dentist I have much fewer issues or need for invasives than I did with my previous. That concerns me about her practice too.

    • heidi says:

      Dean could testify except he has a $7 million cork stuffed in his mouth

    • Alita says:

      I’v been fairly up front that I think people here go out on a limb to diss LeAnn rimes, but this is actually a tad different. Our first son has some developmental issues. Yup. Not great. But we’ll get through it. At the beginning, however, we were advised badly. It had to do with the common childhood issue of glue ear. We did all we could and had all these tests done. Things that we didn’t understand ( yes we googled and spoke with other trained professionals for other advise) , since we weren’t the professionals, had this exceptionally nasty outcome where basically the root cause wasn’t found. Leading to a kid not being able to hear properly for the first 3.5 years of life. This turned out to be the primary presented issue.

      There is obviously more to it than that, but what I want to say here is that it’s possible to be really awfully screwed over by your medical professionals, even when you tty hard to do the right thing. Because fundamentally we have to trust them ast some point to do the best thing, because despite our research, we non-medicoes don’t know.

      Food for thought.

  29. Lulu says:

    TMJ can crack molars and wear teeth down, so the root canals could be partially related to that.

  30. Blondie says:

    Acid erosion from bulemia causes an abscess, and you would need a root canal. Also certain medications especially pain medication wreck havoc on your teeth. I don’t think anyone would continue to go to a dentist for three years if the work was shoddy. Leeann is simply running out of money, and she is sue-happy. She is also looking for attention. She wrecked her own career and she’s simply looking for someone to blame. I hope the dentist being sued kept detailed records of everything that went on in his office. This is the beginning of the end for Leeann, nothing is ever her fault.

  31. skilo says:

    I have wicked TMJ which I have not had treated because TMJ is very hard to treat and very expensive to treat. I’ve never had to have a root canal.
    I think Leann just needs an excuse not to work so she can constantly watch Eddie, but she needs money so she can keep him spoiled in the manner she has gotten him accustomed to, so viola lawsuit.

  32. Elisabeth says:

    I want to sue her parents for tossing this abomination of a human being out into the world

  33. Rita says:

    All her physical problems started when she went all wonky-boobs and lypo-max-suck-skeletor (her mental problems began long before that).

    Since she’s suing for future lost wages, she understands her career is and has been over for sometime. Perhaps a retirement announcement is in the offing but that will last less than a week.

    This may very well be a case where Kim Smiley’s good Karma is whispering to LeAnn that her lawsuit doesn’t have any teeth.

    (btw-That wonky-boob doctor is probably next up on the docket)

  34. skilo says:

    “Some psoriasis medications like Remicade, can cause dental problems.”

    “I started the Enbrel back in 2001. I wondered what the side effects would be since it is meant to slow down your immune system. Well, recently I learned one big side effect. My teeth are rotting out. In the past 60 days, I have had to have 4 root canals and surgery on my mouth. “What does that have to do with Enbrel? Apparently the cotton mouth I was experiencing while on the medication was caused by a decrease of saliva in my mouth, which causes tooth decay, like older adults experience.”

    So I hope that her Dentists lawyer, brings this up in court. I wonder if Leann was honest with her Doc about the meds she takes? Well I guess if the dental lawsuit fails she can sue the makers of the psoriasis medications. After all gotta keep Eddie in bathing suits and tequila. Gigolos ain’t cheap Y’all!

  35. Lesalou says:

    I believe this is a smart manuever concocted by Leann and her new management. How better to explain her concert cancellations and all of her mysterious troubles the last few years. I am sure her money buys her the best care and who in their right mind would not get a second opinion when undergoing all of that? Because of her history, I immediately think it’s just a manuever to again try to salvage her pitiful reputation and sell her album getting ready to come out. The media seems so ignorant. They immediately start showing her sympathy for all of her dental issues. Takes everybody’s mind off all her other issues. Public relations attempt at this dentist’s expense. This woman doesn’t care who she destroys to save herself. Past and future earnings? She has probably estimated that at millions when in reality she is not making that kind of money any more. If you will remember, the only time she had dental issues is when she had a scheduled appearance. Her constant bikini pics at the beach never indicated she was having any problems. I call BS and lawsuit happy woman!!

    • heidi says:

      Yes~so when her album sales come up virtually empty she can blame not being able to tour bc of the mouth issue. Besides Eddie can’t be trusted to be out from under her watchful eye.

    • candigirl says:

      Very insightful! This latest excuse would cover a myriad of her behavior: concert cancellations, drug use, the Xfactor bomb that hurt Carly, her psycho stalking of Brandi, her lawsuit against a teacher etc. She could say “I’m in constant pain and now I can’t work and need to self-medicate (bet you she uses this one) with alcohol and drugs, need Eddie’s constant attention, need lots of cash for my retirement,” etc.
      It’s just another “Day in the Life of Our Diva” Sueann. It may also be the prelude to a stint in REAL rehab this time. Well take a tip you New Management/PR people, it will not work without long term serious psychiatric treatment. You’ve taken on a professional narcissist and BPD/HPD.

    • claire says:

      Yeah, something else is probably going on here. I mean, we’ve all been skeptical on this site about her dental drama. The cancellations just oh too conveniently seemed to coincide with Eddie being left home alone, it seemed. But come vacation time, no mention of any of it. It’s sketchy. I suspect all those cancellations are catching up to her and either Eddie or her management has called her on it.

    • Little Darling says:

      This is EXACTLY what I thought immediately. This is her way of putting blame on someone for the bull in the past three years. Also could toss in her wacky appearances on tv/interviews. I absolutely, wholeheartedly believe this a calculated PR move to put accountability on someone (as always) but herself.

  36. Memphis says:

    No matter the cause if your stupid enough to continue going to a dentist who you claim is doing shoddy/painful work for THREE DAMN YEARS, when you have the means to choose any dentist, then you’re an idiot and get no sympathy from me.

    With as many A+ cosmetic dentist there are in Hollywood why keep going to BRANDI’s dentist if he did such horrible work? Yeah, we know why.

    I think she is trying to find an excuse (aside from bulimia) as to why she cant sing anymore. Her vocal cords are shot and shes blaming her teeth. Plus she needs some more money to keep buying off Ed to stay with her.

  37. why? says:

    The Dailymail just posted photos of Leann shopping in a red shirt and leather pants showing off the new bangs she single white femaled from Lizzy. Be prepared because in the staged photo-ops from yesterday, Leann looks just like Lizzy. Scary. If Eddie is so much in love with Leann was is she changing herself so much to be like Brandi, Lizzy, Scheana, or whoever Eddie is lusting over?

    The lawsuit is just another pr stunt to get attention. And it worked. The media had sympathy for Leann and then she resumes her staged “How did the paps find me” photo-ops.

  38. Jayna says:

    She should sue Eddie for the past three years where she destroyed her looks to try and become his Brandi Barbi doll.

    On a different note, Daily Mail has her latest pap setup. Hair clip-ins or extensions add in length. In the second photo, I have to say she looks great. Really cute outfit on her, great hair color, paler skin again, healthy weight. First photo not as flattering with bangs. So I don’t know yet if the bangs are going to be bad or not. They are too long, though.

  39. Dee Cee says:

    So sad, she’s learning that miracles that defy common sense and science can’t happen all the time. Bathroom barfing, booze and over medication, even if the pharmaceutical’s are legal and safe you can’t continually take OTC medication, foolishly diet or bad things happen to your body.

  40. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    With the bangs LR looks like Mariah Carey – and, though I’m not a fan, her voice isn’t as annoying as Mariah Carey’s – too bad about the veneers – her teeth were fine before.

  41. Jaana says:

    I love Brandi but as a human being I cant help but stop and think about LeAnn and her state of mind. She is not ok and I hope she gets help. Get rid of Eddie and move on be healthy.

  42. Elly says:

    Once upon a time…. LeAnn had eyes.

  43. Rita says:

    If you haven’t seen it yet, there’s a picture going around twitter of LeAnn mocking Brandi again.

    It was taken backstage at a concert showing LeAnn on a pair of crutches, drinking, and screaming at someone. It was taken at the time Brandi broke her foot and needed crutches.

    Apparently, the photo was taken by one of LeAnn’s insiders and leaked to the twitter world.

    • candigirl says:

      Yes, it is Leann mocking Brandi on RHOBH. She is backstage at on of her concerts and mimicking Brandi’s foot injury and crutches.That’s one of the scariest photos. It shows her in psycho mode and full on hatred of Brandi, I saw it on allabouttrh.
      Also creepy is the recent photo comparison of Leann copying Brandi’s outfit for her appearance on XFactor, it’s on gossiprocks page 1083, post 16233. Like someone wouldn’t call her out on it. Insane

  44. Jayna says:

    To me, the biggest sign LeAnn has a personality disorder or mental issues is even more than her obssession with copying Brandi for the whole world to see, like the bikini pose on the lounge chair photo or buying something exactly the same, etc (which obviously she is too delusional to see how strange it is), it’s all the photos she posts of her throwing her head back and laughing with a bizarrely wide-open mouth and posting it (her vow renewal and more recently, a few months ago, that awful pic of her in an orange dress and tweeting a photo of herself close up with her mouth bizarrely wide open laughing. It was so unflattering and downright awful. Who does that anyway, but who would want to post such an ugly photo of themselves?

  45. SusieQ2 says:

    I’m sorry, but if you were having that much discomfort with your dental work, why on earth would you keep going back to the SAME dentist for THREE years?? Why would you put yourself through that?

    This is BS. She’s either looking for sympathy or she needs the money for her next lawsuit.

  46. why? says:

    Leann’s plan worked. She is now trending on Yahoo. #3 now! She has succeeded in taking the attention off of Brandi’s book and putting it on herself simply by playing the victim. Why does the media always fall for Leann’s scams when her agenda is so obvious?

    I don’t know how the media missed this, Radaronline mentioned Dr. Duane McKay in this write-up last year:

    “LeAnn Rimes Obsessed With Brandi Glanville, Insider Says”(Dec 19, 2012)

    “LeAnn used Brandi’s boob doctor, Garth Fisher; her dentist, Dr. Duane McKay; her hairstylist, Kim Vo; her dermatologist, Dr. Harold Lancer; and the same Botox guy at Dr. Applebaum’s!” the insider says. “It is disturbing – she finds out who Brandi uses, then goes out of her way to book an appointment with them herself.”

  47. spinner says:

    WOW!! I clicked on this thread because in the pic, Leann looked like she was hysterical. I was surprised to see that she was merely singing. She needs to ditch Eddie & get with John Mayer immediately. They make the same faces.

  48. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I laughed my ass off at these pictures.

    I think everything has been already been said about her appearance so need to reiterate but these photos are effin’ hysterical.

  49. Jessica says:

    And so the karma give back begins…

  50. Blondie says:

    Off topic but Brandi is on Anderson Cooper. She is so much prettier on TV than the pics I’ve seen posted of her, and she has a great personality. Team Brandi!!!

  51. Jessica says:

    Have any of you seen this pic? I saw it on twitter this week. Leanne is mocking Brandi but in my opinion looks like a crazy jealous new wife. This dental drama has taken over her timeline so I had to google it:

    http://www.allabouttrh.com/photo-leann-rimes-mocks-brandi-glanville/

  52. valleymiss says:

    So, 2 days after Brandi’s book comes out, Leann announces she’s suing her dentist? Please. Leann, you can try to steal focus all you want…but all this dental drama is doing is making people think that you’re bulimic. Brandi’s book is a success. Deal with it. You can’t handle THE TOOTH! Lol

  53. Well, that’s the problem right there! She went to a dentist instead of a veterinarian! When did LieAnn get so sue happy? Sheesh.

  54. gogoGorilla says:

    You know, as much as I don’t like her, I don’t find it implausible that she’s had bad work done. She might actually have grounds (or she might not). The issue, though, is that she’s filed at least one bogus suit against a regular person that I know of, so therefore, I’m going to side-eye pretty much anything she does.

    This is what happens when you cry WOLF too many times, people.

  55. Ginger says:

    When I first moved to Vegas I had a terrible dentist that only cared about his bottom line–money! He did terrible work on my bridge so I ended up going to another dentist. I didn’t complain about the old dentist, just that I didn’t feel my bridge was working (luckily I didn’t say anything because my new dentist is friends with the old one) He redid the bridge, no questions asked and I’m very happy with his work. So much so that I also had him pull my wisdom teeth that I had been putting off for years. If you have a great dentist it should be fine to have them pulled. He had mine out so easily despite complications in under 15 minutes!! I was so happy that I applauded him, literally!I’m curious how LeAnn’s dentist convinced her that veneers would help with TMJ pain?? Does anyone else know? I have terrible TMJ pain but no dentist has ever suggested this to me.

  56. Zooyork says:

    See, I don’t have sympathy for her because I think this is the price to pay for vanity. There are risks with surgeries, that’s why I would never do a cosmetic surgery. I just live with what God gave me. I personally think that what is natural looks best, especially proportion wise.
    I kno LeAnn is trying to claim that part of the reason for her getting the surgery is due to TMJ, but I don’t believe her.
    She already got a horrible boob job, shouldn’t she have learned her lesson already?
    How can she sue for “cosmetic deficiancy” when she was never attractive to begin with?
    She only brings negativity to anyone she comes in contact with, dentists included. People should avoid having antything to do with her, for their own well-being.

  57. Linda says:

    All that money she has and she didn’t get a second opinion?!?! Yeah right, I call bull.

  58. KellyinSeattle says:

    She always looks like she’s in pain when she’s singing.

  59. Amory says:

    Good luck finding a jury that would believe a word this woman says. That she lied to cover her affair is well-documented, is it not?? and should destroy her credibility.

  60. Melissa says:

    I just want to throw my vote in for that top pic as pic of the year – it totally kills!

  61. Ana says:

    Kaiser, why not try hipnosis or something for the procedure? I’ve seen people that get general anaesthesia…maybe that? If the tooth doesn’t hurt or isn’t pushing the others, etc you could just keep it, if not you should do something about it…because of mine I am wearing braces…again, at 29! :(

    P.S. Re-read your post, so if you need to as you said better man up and get it over with…do as I did, I got all taken out at once! That way I wouldn’t put off the rest if it was painful, which wasn’t at all btw! ;)

  62. Baylor says:

    Wasn’t it said that LeAnn started going to all medical professionals/services that Brandi does? Wonder if this dentist and her plastic surgeon messed her up on purpose to show just as Team Brandi she is. Just kidding! Lol!
    That being said, LeAnn has always been very sue happy. I remember reading online somewhere that around the time she was suing her dad and curb, she was also suing a recently widowed elderly lady. Apparently, the woman had hired LeAnn for a private party. Like they agreed, the woman paid LeAnn half the fee beforehand. Well, the night before the party the woman’s husband died. So she cancelled the party and LeAnn. For her troubles, she told LeAnn to keep the half already paid to her. Well, LeAnn sued her. Nice right?! At this point LeAnn was already loaded and this woman’s husband just died!
    Don’t know if that’s even 100% true since I read this online a few years back, but my gosh!
    Gotta feel bad for the dentist. Sue-happy people are stereotypically lower-income. One of the “perks” of seeing higher income clients is the reduction in financial-risk. Not with LeAnn though!

  63. grayze says:

    This is a little bit OT – but I’ve seen quite a few mentions of bruxism on here. Teeth-grinding is the DEVIL and if you have insurance, your best bet is to get a mouthguard made by your dentist instead of one of those store-bought ones (I could never use those properly and always chewed through them or they didn’t fit right). Mine led me to migraine headaches, jaw problems, and all kinds of issues until my dentist told me what the problem was.

    • NorthernGirl_20 says:

      I grind my teeth also, at night and it is painful. Headaches, toothaches etc. I have a mouthguard made at my dentists and what a difference it makes. I also don’t use it at much as I should and I’ve had two cavities as a result, because the griding caused cracks in my teeth.

  64. natalina says:

    STOP WITH THESE SELFISH LAWSUITS

  65. J7 says:

    There is nothing worse than tooth pain, and the thought of her suffering from it, just makes me smile big.

  66. Madriani's Girl says:

    I like the part how she sues him for lost future earnings. Exactly how much of a percentage of ZERO does she think she’s entitled to, and does it even matter?

  67. Zooyork says:

    Sorry MeAnn, but you have a history of being a liar and a cheat, and you also have a history of filing frivolous lawsuits.
    So… who are we going to believe? You or a dentist, who is a professional, graduated from dentistry school etc…
    What is your credibility leAnn? You never had to even work hard for your living, your talent came to you naturally.
    You had the time and means to better yourself as much as you good. You could have gone to university and pursued some knowledge and awareness but you choose not to.
    Instead you sue people like teachers and dentists, who work hard for what they have.

  68. TheTruthHurts says:

    Interesting that she claims her dental problems kept her from work & future work, but they never seemed to keep her from vacationing! She’s got a tough battle in front of her. Good.

  69. Rita says:

    Does the picture of LeAnn mocking Brandi on crutches now give Brandi the right to do a bikini photoshoot wearing a set of those oversized Halloween teeth? No, Brandi’s too smart for that but I’d giggle.

  70. why? says:

    Now that the “suing the dentist” stories made the media feel sorry for Leann, Leann can do what she intended to do in the first place. Bombard the internet with “Is she or is she not pregnant” articles. How can she say that the dentist ruined her career when she is paying ROL to fuel pregnancy rumors in an attempt to overshadow the attention Brandi is getting for her book? Is this how Capitol Records plans on promoting her album? They have to be cringing right now at the mess Leann is making of things. This is why her career is in the state it’s in. She sues Brandi’s dentist to lead into annoucing that she is pregnant or to at least toy with the media about a possibly pregnancy.

    • Relli says:

      While I agree that the media does play into her hand (that pays) I think the general public is catching on.

      I often read the comments on other sites when I see a SueAnn story and lately none of them have been sympathetic. In fact most of them are making jokes about bikini pictures, X-factor performances and now her teeth. One thread I read yesterday had to do with the low-brow arenas that she plays in, a few people were from the same area and stated she was playing in the worst casino there. I believe one stated that the last person they had seen at that specific casino was Andrew Dice Clay.

  71. april says:

    She should have gotten at least three dental opinions before she even chose a dentist for this much work. Also references would have helped.

  72. Snowpea says:

    Oh my gosh this new story boggles my mind!

    Does she not realise that this makes he look MORE of a freak? I just don’t get it.

    As for that pic of her backstage with crutches…there are no words anymore. She is a delusional, obsessive, meanspirited, jealous, dangerous lunatic.

    Somebody please remove those children from her care IMMEDIATELY!

    • Christin says:

      Didn’t you call this one last week? That there was likely plotting going on, and to expect something big? Here it is!

      There is great suffering in the world, and yet we have a lawsuit like this from someone who tweeted, got papped and vacationed through such (*cough*) horrible pain. I hope the lawyers for the dentist don’t cave and settle quickly. If this is an unfounded suit, I hope they fight it full-force.

      • Snowpea says:

        Yes Christin, I sho’ did.

        I knew she’d go home, get all her ducks in a row and then pop up for Round #23.

        Seriously, she’s more of a lunatic than I thought.

        All sense of dignity and self and pride has been wiped out by the need to annihilate her enemies, even though they are all in her own mind.

        She is a frighteningly unwell person.

  73. TeamBrandi says:

    I read this article to my husband who’s a dentist. He said that if she got veneers and didn’t take care of it then it’ll turn into a root canal. The bone graft happens when you have periodontitis (evidence she doesnt take care of her mouth.) Eddie Cibrian is disgusting making out with someone with periodontitis coz I can’t imagine how stinky her breath is. A dentist can only do so much for her. She has to brush and floss herself everyday.

  74. felixe says:

    Dos anyone know if it’s possible to read her posts somewhere, without paying for her fansite?

    Without writing a book, I had what was supposed to be a good dentist. He messed my mouth up so badly, I ended up with TMJ. After 2.5 years of pain (the idiot did not know what was going on) I found a dedicated TMJ dentist who helped me back to a normal life. Itell everyone I know my story and warn them against this dentist.

  76. Gabby says:

    I’ve had Invisalign and just recently got them off (saw some comments regarding this) and while expensive, I got great results in about a year. Only thing I hated with the pain of the new retainer when you change them every couple weeks and the little white “bumps” they put on teeth to rotate and add
    More pressure.

    As for Meanne, my first thought was bulimia rotted her teeth and she has severe jaw issues because of it. And I think she’s really noticing the horse related comments regarding her veneers and she’s become insecure about them. She acts like she can just sue anyone for any reason though, kind of pathetic.

  77. Debra says:

    how could getting veneers on your front teeth help with TMJ? Leann Rimes is (apparently) full of horsesh**

  78. Sapphire says:

    According to the complaint, paragraphs 12-13, the biggest “cosmetic defect” is that her two upper front teeth will now always be too long.Apparently the veneers were actually replaced by crowns at some point.

    I could think of more that just long incisors as a defect but it’s Friday….

  79. Ms Kay says:

    Whoever came up with the Suing Law should sue her for over-abusing the field.

  80. Christin says:

    Given that she started suing her own dad and others the year she turned 18, should we be surprised? Daddy didn’t take it lying down, and I hope this dentist (or I assume, his malpractice carrier’s lawyers) won’t either, if it’s unfounded.

    Part of Daddy’s countersuit contained allegations about her men and spending habits during her teen years. Several articles are online from the year 2000, and his countersuit claims painted a picture far from an “America’s Sweetheart”.

  81. Chrissy says:

    I’m no expert on dental things, but my mom had front veneer things put on and they did reduce her teeth alot before applying them. She had them for about ten years when one of her teeth underneath cracked in half. I saw it myself and can say her original tooth was kind of a tiny nub. She had diabetes, and that contributed to the breaking, so I wouldn’t say it was the dentist’s fault, but there was so little tooth left she had to get a bridge. I doubt Leann has terrible hygeine, and I’ve never heard of her having diabetes, so there must be some other reason for her teeth to have so many problems. I wish these pictures were dated. Her teeth look nice in the last picture. Would like to see a really old picture before she had all the dental work out of curiosity.

    • Christin says:

      There are already side-by-side “old and new” teeth photo comparisons online. She had small gaps between her teeth. Big deal.

      In my opinion, she would have been much better off to stick with original equipment and not have lots of work that will need maintenance in years to come.

      • Jayna says:

        LeAnn had her teenage teeth. Then she still had very small teeth, no gap anymore. So don’t know exactly what she did. Then somewhere maybe in her mid twenties (24? Not sure when) she got the horsey veneers. It appears she has been replacing those with this new dentist. Her teeth have been looking a tad smaller and not as white. So this is her second set of veneers she has now.

  82. Anonymous says:

    Hello, ding ding ding, she just bought Eddie a mansion to live in–the money’s gotta come from somewhere.

  83. DGO says:

    The dentist she’s suing also happens to be Brandi’s dentist. She also was photographed yesterday wearing the same boots and carrying the same bag (albeit in a different color) than Brandi was sporting the other day in New York. Weird weird weird.

  84. Jane says:

    Oh boo-f***ing hoo as Brandi would say. Brandi is getting attention and Leann won’t have it. So she made this ordeal up. I hope the case gets thrown out of court. It’s blooming laughable.

  85. Baylor says:

    My random note of the day:

    I saw that LeAnn’s “sister” has been tweeting horrible stuff to Brandi. Yup, this pregnant lady who has recently given birth had the time and energy to send abusive tweets to Brandi. Nice.

    However, this woman can give thanks to LeAnn for her “career” as well. She used to work for Leann and/or Rimes Entertainment, then thanks to that work experience and connections made because of that, she went on to work for Taylor Swift, etc. She now has her own company. LeAnn uses that company’s services. So, yes, she should be kissing LeAnn’s ass. However,didn’t someone say on here that she often bad-mouths LeAnn behind her back?! That’s hilarious if true.
    She’s a piece of work for trying to abuse Brandi though.

  86. Jayna says:

    LeAnn’s small teeth before horsey veneers. Why on earth did she ever do it?

    LeAnn at 20. Some closeups of her teeth later in the video.

    At 22 or 23, some more closeups of her small teeth all throughout in it.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIUMPG6Punw

    I always tried to figure out why she did it. She had a little bit of gum showing. Maybe that was it. She had obviously capped a few teeth from her teen days, but had a nice smile.

    • BeachBelle says:

      Talk about ruining your appearance. I don’t know anyway else to say this. LeAnn has destroyed her appearance trying to please a sorry man who would not look at her twice if she didn’t have money. I predict this isn’t going to end well for her at all. No way it could.

      • candigirl says:

        You’re right, IRL Eddie would never be seen with Leann if she weren’t wealthy. But because he was a broke grifter when they cheated, he does have to look at her again and again, every day for the rest of his life. And he must continuously reassure her how beautiful and sexy she is. Hahahahaha. He has to do this because he can’t be a man and get a job and earn his own money. He is a little boy, dependent on her purse to get him through life. To keep his allowance flowing Eddie has to adore her. That’s one of the most delicious parts of the way things worked out. This (formerly sexy) heart throb, promiscuous, back-stabbing bad actor now has to act loving, committed, and sincerely head over heels in love with one of the nastiest, ugliest women in show business for the rest of his life. L’chaim, Eddie!

  87. bettyrose says:

    I wouldn’t wish dental problems on anyone, but I recently spoke with someone who – due to limited insurance options – had been seeing a bad dentist. After a particularly bad experience, she switched dentists and filed a complaint with her insurance provider. I don’t get why someone with money would spend one second too long with a dentist that made them uncomfortable.

  88. Stef says:

    I have two veneers on my upper jaw – cosmetic purposes, I didn’t want braces. My dentist did a phenom job. Yes, they do file your teeth down to nubs – can agree with that – but I’ve had my veneers for almost 9 years now and never ONCE had a problem. No pain, no chipping, no root canals. They look phenomenal and no one can tell the difference from my real teeth and those ones. I am not rich, I simply got good recommendations for a capable dentist and it was the best 2200 I ever spent. Can’t imagine how shitty it must be when someone botches it.

  89. Jennifer says:

    Sounds to me like she’s upset that so many people make fun of her horse teeth online that she’s decided it’s the dentist’s fault.

  90. claire says:

    I think I know who you’re talking about and what she says to Brandi. It’s very cruel. And not to mention just totally twisted. They’re not nice people, Leann and her crew.

    (this was in reply to Baylor but comments are being weird today)

  91. Iyanla says:

    I just read Brandi’s book and Leann is a nasty little witch. Eddie is the biggest lying, cowardly, pathetic excuse for a man. Once she saw his true colors, its obvioud Brandi is replused by his true character. The fact that Leann knowsthe nasty lying family betraying side of Eddies personality and STILL is into him speaks volumes of her utter lack of morals and character. Eddie and Leann are birds of a feather.

    Leann, you can try to claim Brandis book is untrue as much as u want. That doesnt make you any more believable.

  92. Lady says:

    She is so unbelievably ugly, inside and out, I don’t know how she is still famous. She is such a self-centred egocentristic person who looks like a badger with down syndrome.

  93. joan says:

    Lordy Lordy that girls breath must be worse than 15 year old dog. Leann- Eddie lets have sex–Eddie– brush your teeth and chew a package of mints- then put the bag over your head,,, yup I’m ready

  94. DGO says:

    You won’t believe this, but LeAnn’s trying to find a new dentist – through TWITTER.

  95. nannabush says:

    I feel so shallow for saying this, but dear God, she’s ugly!

  96. Hakura says:

    Coming in late on this story, damn it. Something I actually have real experience with. I was born w/almost -no- enamel on my teeth. So by the time I was 14, they were all pretty much falling apart (at the *base* of the tooth, no less. Another confirmation that the lack of enamel was the issue.

    Point being, I’ve had every tooth in my mouth root canal-ed/bridged/ect. I was really fortunate that the bridge for my front teeth were made so well…

    It sucks & could always be a natural condition as opposed to poor hygiene. But what I don’t understand is why any of the work couldn’t be corrected? Saying the damage is irreversible?

  97. why? says:

    Why is Leann so predictable? She really is using “Is she or she she not pregnant” campaign to overshadow Brandi’s book. I thought she would be more aggressive the first day of Brandi’s book release, but the more and more Brandi does promotion for her book the more aggressive Leann becomes with the pregnancy rumors. Since her other “Is she or she is not pregnancy” attempts die down after 3 days, Leann is now feeding stories to Star about how she is pregnant because she and Eddie were spotted at an OB-GYN two months ago and she didn’t drink anything over the holidays. And of course she used Gossip Cop to deny it. You can tell the stories that Leann is leaking to the tabloids because she introduces the story to the media by having Gossip Cop deny it before the story gets noticed by other media outlets.

    Per Gossip Cop, Star says that Leann and Eddie visited the OB-GYN two months ago(that means she found out about the pregnancy before the holidays and not during the holidays like the source claims). In December, Leann tweeted that she and Eddie were having drinks to celebrate their new house. Leann was riding on the back of the water sky with Eddie in January. Leann was tweeting about her psoriasis meds and the dental work she has been doing to fix her teeth yesterday. Leann couldn’t go a day in Cabo without calling the paps, so if she and Eddie really went because of a pregnancy, then Leann would have invited AKM-GSI to document it.

    Could the OB-GYN visit have something to do with Eddie and his HPV and cheating?In anticipation of what would come up in Brandi’s book, Leann and Eddie got tested and treated for HPV just so that Leann can say that Brandi is lying if he ever came up.

  98. why? says:

    Why is Leann so predictable? So Leann’s publicist who updates Leann on everything that happens on RHOBH must have informed Leann that today is the day that the New York Times updates their best sellers lists. And knowing this information, Leann filled up the internet and tabloids with fluffpieces about the new mansion she bought for Eddie and a pregnancy as damage control. Question is: why does the media fall for Leann’s pr stunts every time? I figured that all of this stuff about their mansion and pregnancy had something to do with Brandi’s book, which Brandi just announced made the NY Times Best Sellers list today. Why can’t the media see Leann’s agenda?
