LeAnn Rimes calls the paps on her Bonus Boys, part bajillion: sad & uncomfortable?

FFN_Rimes_LeAnn_DMVMCPFF2_110213_51250080

Not content to merely call the paparazzi on herself and Eddie Cibrian in Malibu on Friday, LeAnn also had to ensure that the paparazzi would get lots and lots of photos of her being a loving Bonus Mom, so she called them and told them she would put on a show during Mason Cibrian’s soccer game on Saturday. These are those photos. What’s funny/interesting/uncomfortable is that LeAnn is so hyper-aware of the cameras (which she invited), to the point where she’s just obviously staring at the paps rather than her stepsons in most of the photos. And when she is looking at one of her bonus kids, it’s obvious that her thought process is “Okay, pose like this and they’ll get a great shot!” Who is this aimed at? Brandi? All of us? All of the above? All I can say is that the way she’s holding Jake is just… ugh. I feel sorry for those kids.

Hilariously, though, LeAnn does think that her comings and goings are, like, A-list. The fact that her marriage problems made the cover of Star Mag only reinforce her idea of herself as a major celebrity. She even tweeted: “I’m sure glad we sell mags! Most positive way to look at it. Lol.” Well, LeAnn… everyone stops to look at a car crash, regardless of who is in the car crash. And it’s been four years of non-stop car crashes.

Also interesting – even the gossip sites who used to cover LeAnn and Eddie without much editorializing have no come on board the Anti-LeAnn Train after she insults them directly. I was surprised to read this Gather Celebs piece which slams her pretty hard. And LeAnn did a tweet-and-delete to Celeb Dirty Laundry calling the woman a “horrific human being” so now CDL is going after LeAnn even harder. LOL.

    she is rocketing out into the stratosphere with her craziness

  2. Relli says:

    Oh Marge. No matter how hard you try no one will ever be enviable of you for anything. Particularly with the greeasy bun. Also if you are going to be asked to get papped two days in a row you should change your pants and maybe shower.

    What happens when the little one stops playing along too?

  3. tricklady says:

    At first I thought it was going to be funny, now I am really scared for all involved!

  4. John Wayne Lives says:

    Omg that boy is beyond darling!

  5. littlestar says:

    Yes, very sad. She needs to stop already, with everything. It’s mind boggling how she has thrown away what could have been an amazing career in country music over Eddiot, an eating disorder, Twitter, the Brandi obsession, drinking and drugging, and all her other numerous problems. She’s her own worst enemy. She’s going to wake up one day (and the way things are going, it’s going to be very soon) and realize she has almost NOTHING. No money, no career, no Eddiot, no bonus boys. All she’ll have left is Twitter….. How does she not realize this???!!!

    • briargal says:

      Because in her feeble little entitled mind she is so beautiful and lovable. And she is the victim, don’t you guys realize that??!! Pathetic loser!!

      • Decloo says:

        That’s where you are wrong. In her mind she is neither beautiful nor lovable. The only props she ever got were for her voice and her last album tanked. Her behavior is classic and extreme insecurity. She’s grasping at whatever straws she can to validate herself. I think it’s just sad. Furthermore, when she and Eddie split, she will lose those boys and I bet they are the only ones who truly ever loved her (confirmed numerous times by Brandi).

      • Hakura says:

        @Dedee – I thought the boys were tired of Leann? In so many pics, they look like they’d rather be anywhere else in the WORLD but next to/being touched by/her. Maybe that’s just when the paps are around? If it IS true that they love her, your comment makes me so sad… Once dimple-dong leaves, Leann probably won’t ever see the kids again.

        If Falcor the narcissist IS capable of loving someone other than herself, it’ll really be a shame. But she *uses* them for her own gain so much, I can’t help but feel like she only sees them as props. It doesn’t excuse the cray cray, but she really has wrangled herself into a position where she’s going to eventually end up with absolutely nothing. =<

      • briargal says:

        @Decloo–I agree she is insecure and needy. But all those “Look at me and see how cute I am” pics are pathetic. You know the ones with her hands up to her mouth and her leg up –the unicorn pic as an example. I truly think that she believes she is beautiful and sooo desirable–after all look at the hottie she managed to swipe away from that awful Brandi! She thinks the world revolves around her and only her. And I don’t think the boys really love her–maybe Jake but Mason not!

    • TheTruthHurts says:

      But Littlestar, she will always have Holly.

  6. Chicagogurl says:

    so even Jake wants to shoot her

  7. claire says:

    Those jeans should be able to stand on their own by now.

  8. Elisabeth says:

    does anyone notice the hilarity of her stepson making a gun with his fingers and pretending to shoot her in the face?

  9. dorothy says:

    Both sad and uncomfortable. No wonder Eddie wants to be rid of her.

  10. Itwillrain says:

    Just exactly how is she going to end up w no money? That ain’t gonna happen…the rest might, but she is loaded and that is not gonna change.

    • nana55 says:

      She used to be, but with no record deal, last 2 albums have bombed, her concerts are casinos, fairs, a few venues she’s had in nice places, they can’t give away her tickets for free. She’s has a few venues who are getting ready to sue her, for canceling, she has a history of canceling and it’s gotten worse now that she’s been with Eddie. They have more money going out then they have coming in. She has been told by her accountant, she needs to stop spending, get back to work, she’s almost out of money.

    • Amory says:

      So many celebs, especially singers, wind up broke. I think it’s amazing, too, but lots of people can’t handle money, or put their trust in the wrong people.

  11. Hakura says:

    Aside from the obvious reasons behind these ‘bonus boys’ pics (to further refute the star cover, & piss off Brandi as usual, since she admitted she can’t *stand* that), it’s plain as day she hears that clock ticking toward January (when that ‘law’ about papping kids goes into effect), so is getting in as much as she can before then. I forsee a tidal wave of such pics until then, especially at Xmas. The way she uses them is SO wrong. =<

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Isn’t it funny how whenever there are rumors of a celeb couple breaking up–we get a title wave of lovey-dovey pics? And then a while later, they’re in splitsville. That’s what Leann is doing–I think she thinks that the public is stupid, because this strategy NEVER works. I’d say that Leann and Eddie have always been in “splitsville” i.e. Eddie’s waiting for a bigger cash cow to come along. If some lady with even a penny more of Leann’s money even blinks in his direction, he’s OUT. That’s why Leann calls the paps everywhere she goes. Because she thinks that *if* they split, not when in her delusional mind, we’ll all be on her side. NOT.

      And I also agree with you on that law about paps getting pics w/kids–that threw a monkey wrench into her plans..

      • Hakura says:

        @Virgilia Coriolanus – I’m with you, celebrities (&their PR people) seem to think the public is totally stupid/naive. Like all the celebs who make excuses/denials after obvious cosmetic surgery/procedures… Gaga comes to mind, with her whole ‘Woe is me, I hurt my hip & have to have a serious operation with a long, super painful recovery, woe is me’, only to come back months later with facial changes, & appear (supposedly) nude & makeup free in that meditation video… Completely without scars on his hips/thigh/whatever, that the surgery she claimed she had *always* causes.

        They think we’re sheep, & give us no respect for having basic Intelligence.

      • TheTruthHurts says:

        Of course she thinks that. Have you taken a look at her fans on Twitter? They are all obsessively co-dependent towards her. You know it kills her that she doesn’t have normal folk for fans, just wierdos with issues in need of hugs and her telling them she loves them.

      • Sal says:

        Lol so true. Her fans have all medical or mental problems and They will literally harass her until dhe replies. There is that ASU who has very severe emotional problems, that one who had a heart operation and because Leann farted in her direction before the op that makes her and Leann bestest friends forever, and of course the stepmums who believe that because they are good stepmums and becuause Leann shows love to the boys then she is the bestest stepmum ever – never mind the fact that Leann has repeated put those boys in danger. To the stepmum brigade, there is no middle ground; Leann is an excellent stepmum JUST because she loves the boys. Thats the ONLY prerequisite, she can endanger the boys, use them for pap attention but as long as she ‘loves’ the boys, EVERYTHING is ok and she is a ‘great’ stepmum. smh Leann’s fans are scary with their deep mental and emotional disorders. Just read a few tweets from them to Leann CRYING for twitter hugs and attention and a hello, and bombarding her with like 5-7 tweets one after another asking “why aren’t you talking to me”, her fans need to be in psychiatric asylums.

    • msw says:

      The papping law has nothing to do with it. Kids can still get lapped. The paps just can’t antagonize children anymore. Of course, they still will. And SueAnn will continue to pimp out her stepsons. The world keeps spinning.

      • Hakura says:

        @MSW – Ooh, I didn’t realize that. So the new rule is that paps just can’t talk to the kids, but they can still do everything else they always did? I heard from someone here awhile back that Leann had posted about the starting date of this law on a fake Twitter account (don’t know if it’s true). But if it is, I wonder why she would care enough to post about it, if it wouldn’t pose a problem for her somehow.:. Otherwise she’d likely have posted on her actual Twitter ‘praising’ (Re: BS-ing) the law, to appear a better, protective, Bonus Mom who hates that the paps always take pics of them to publish. But we all know what BS THAT would be.

      • msw says:

        I’m not sure, all I really know about it is from CB. I think the law doesn’t prohibit pics of kids, but rather paps being jerks to small children (asking Halle Berry’s daughter how she felt about never seeing her father again, stuff like that). I doubt the paps rarely antagonize the cibrian children because the paps are SueAnn’s buddies. At least I hope. I’m sure SueAnn is full of stories making her a victimvictim of those mean old paps, though.

  12. briargal says:

    She is always posing for the paps. And always looking at them to be sure the camera is pointed her way. Geeezzz!

  13. Nycboots says:

    There is something so entirely “off” about the way that she touches that child. Not only does it appear 100% staged but she also doesn’t have the vaguest clue how one is supposed to touch/interact with a kid. The behavior seems so unnatural and forced to her that she’s almost asking “Look! Am I doing it right?” and expecting validation. Very f*cking weird shit happening in those photos. Super creepy.

    • Stacey says:

      I agree. He is happy, albeit misbehaving by yelling in her face and crawling all over her, and she has no clue how to make him stop. She just thinks it looks cute for the cameras.

      In other websites, you can see Eddie’s father coming over to calm down Jake and pulling him off Leann. She obviously doesn’t have control over the boy in this photo, she looks like an amatuer. You would think after being the best bonus mommy eva she would have more control over the kids. Thank god the grandparents were there to keep an eye on things.

      Her jeans look filthy. And those shoes and greasy hair bun and her dentures…I just can’t!

      • Dia says:

        I agree, that boy was misbehaving and the only thing she knew to do was laugh…lol That boy was yelling in her face and then making his hands into a gun and pointing to her face. Were those the best photos she got? That is so disrespectful. At 6 yrs old he knew exactly what he was doing. I could only imagine what those boys do at home to her. She is definitely no super “bonus” mom. She’s done way too much and now her house of cards are falling.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        They do it to her because she allows it. They know that they can’t do that to their mom, or to their dad, because they know that they’ll be punished. Kids know what they can do or say to one parent, that they might not be able to do or say to the other parent. Even I know, now, that if I ask my mom for something, that she would say yes to–that my dad might say no to.

      • TheTruthHurts says:

        Wasn’t there an issue with her disciplining the boys?

    • Theresa says:

      Absolutely, there is an attention being paid, and behaviour being displayed that screeches “lookit how good we get along, Jake can’t git enough of me, I’m so awesome!” While the whole time, we the audience, many are parents, know how fake it all is. She wins no fans, gains no advocates, fools no one with these photo ops. Yet here she is again, trying hard.

      It’s pretty hilarious how LeAnn goes to such lengths to keep putting on a show, of solidarity with the husband, step-kids, like it’s her new job, her sole purpose in life. I have said it before and I will say it again, it has to be exhausting, trying to keep up with the criticism and then devise ways to battle it. And her solutions are so transparent and not particularly inventive, nor do they work. She does the same thing over and over, behaves the same way, twits the same crap, simpers in interviews, never showing the slightest perception that she is learning anything about herself, or admitting any fault or accountability in what has happened to her.

      I find this so interesting, almost like a science experiment. Watching someone crawl around their petri dish of a life, completely beholden to her twisted psyche, unable to break out or free of her impulses and idiosyncrasies. Cursed to wander around in a fog, always seeking approval, love and attention, yet finding it so elusive. Feeling so persecuted and misunderstood, yet never understanding the true cause of it all. No matter how many fake smiles she is “caught” giving, she is miserable, bitter and angry. Perpetually thwarted, not even close to redemption or acceptance.

      No amount of money on earth would make me trade places with her, nor would keep me by her side. I do not have the patience and I have too much pride to want to take a seat on that train of crazy. Eddie; that was meant for you.

      • Mandy says:

        You’ve hit the nail on the head with this analysis of her, and this is the thing; at the end of the day she is someone to be greatly pitied, she is unable to be happy and grow as a person which IMO are the only worthwhile things in this life. Poor LeAnn. I truly see no hope for her.

    • kpoodle says:

      She is trying to get candid photo’s with Brandi’s kids, the same way Brandi does. The difference is they genuinely love their mother, so there are lots of hugs, kisses and cuddles in those pics with Brandi. LeAnn is not their mom, and no matter how much money she spends on them, they will never lover her in the same way. She’s trying to prove that the kids love her like they do Brandi. But, Jake’s body language says differently and it looks like she’s trying to hold him and keep him from getting down off her lap. That is disturbing to me.

  14. Brown says:

    Where is Ediot? I thought this hag wasn’t allowed around the kids unsupervised?

    • brin says:

      I think his parents were there while he did press for a movie.

    • ncmagnolia says:

      That was my first thought, too.

      As crazy as LoonAnn is, and as rapidly as she’s decompensating, I’m not sure that I think the presence of aging grandparents is enough of a safeguard. LeAnn is only Ed’s wife (for now), not the boys mother. I see no reason that this batsh!t crazy woman should be around Mason and Jake, period, if their father cannot be present to protect them. Falcor has become so unstable that I genuinely worry about her doing something awful to these children.

      • Brown says:

        I don’t worry about her harming the children, more just that we see how unhinged she is even when Ediot IS around… I can’t imagine the level of crazy if he’s not. The things she might say to them about their mom, etc… just not a good idea to let someone who is as obsessed as she is be around them without him.

  15. nana55 says:

    Can not wait till Ed divorces this crazy woman, I hope it’s soon. If I was Brandi, I would demand or threaten court action, no more pap pics with LR & boys. I would never ever let another woman do to my kids what LR is doing to Brandi’s boys.

  16. Babalon says:

    *And LeAnn did a tweet-and-delete to Celeb Dirty Laundry calling the woman a “horrific human being” *

    The thing that amused me most about that tweet was that it was just, “human being” placed in quotations (horrific wasn’t included).

    Because, you know, she’s able to strip you of your humanity with her all-powerful quotation marks now. Look out critics!

  17. Deanne says:

    LeAnn has her legs wrapped around the poor kid so that he can barely move. Forced is the best word I can find to describe the mood of the photos. Jake’s smiling, but she’s glommed all over him just like she is with his Father. There’s nothing naturally affectionate about the way she’s holding his head to hers. It really makes me angry when people say, ‘at least she’s loving towards the boys’. It’s all for show and she’s looking at the camera in every shot other than the ones where she’s all over Jake. That isn’t love. You don’t have to stage love. Everything about her, her marriage and hijacked family is a facade. It’s like she thinks she’s just one staged photo op away from regaining public affection. Oh and she really needs to give those jeans a rest. One thing about LeAnn is that she has a consistently unwashed quality and the alternating between the leather pants and those jeans, while wearing her signature greasy bun, isn’t helping.

  18. eliza says:

    She needs to throw those dumb ass shoes in the garbage.

  19. Robino! says:

    I have a feeling this reality show is exactly what both of them want, but for completely different reasons. LeAnn of course wants more fame, the money, and the exposure. Eddie wants it as an excuse to get out. Everyone knows, or should know, that a reality show is the kiss of death for any relationship. Maybe he’s looking at it as his escape….when it fails he has an out and will have hopefully socked away some money from it. Celebrities that have worked with their spouses, even in TV and movies, have a hard time of staying together. As stupid as he is I think he knows exactly what he’s doing with the reality show and is looking forward to “screwing it all up.”

  20. emmie_a says:

    I can imagine her bonus son saying rude things to her (not that he’s rude but I’m guessing it’s easy to be less than friendly to LeAnn) and her just laughing at everything to make it look like they’re having the best time ever. Everything in her life is incredibly over-staged. Beyond pathetic.

    • MIchele says:

      Agree I have 6 & 8 yr old boys and his body language says “stop touching me lady” look at the gun he’s making with his hand…telling. Little boys are still in love with mamas and mama figures at this age….he’s not obviously.

      • msw says:

        Oh come on. LeAnn sucks and at least the older son seems on to her manipulation, but six year old boys pretending to use guns is absolutely nothing new. Its not for my family and I don’t like it, but many parents have no problem with their kids pretending to shoot everything. There is so much fodder in the whole LeAnn saga, I really don’t know why people are reaching even further. It’s not just this comment, so I am sorry for singling you out.

      • Jayna says:

        Brandi said last week that the boys love LeAnn.

      • TheTruthHurts says:

        Jayna, Brandi obviously knows what is coming down the pike and is being extraordinarily kind to LeAnn at this difficult time. Says a lot about Brandi. I wish LeAnn would have had the same sensitivity towards her when she was showing off her new prize.

  21. brin says:

    I love that more and more blogs are slamming Leechann. CDL has been going hard.
    I never understood why she always got good pr but apparently she goes after anyone who says anything negative (shocking).

  22. someone says:

    Why the assumption that Leann called the paps? Mason has a soccer game every Saturday. It’s not rocket science to know where to go to get the pictures. The paps don’t need Leann’s approval or help to figure it out.

  23. MIchele says:

    Same fking pants!!!! She’s so lowly.

  24. Megan says:

    it is actually tragic that these young boys have no one that puts their well being first. Every adult in their lives care more about famewhoring and getting press then those kids well being and happiness. My heart actually breaks for them.

  25. Amory says:

    I think her weight is fine. I just don’t think she carries her weight as well as others, i.e., it is not well distributed on her body. That’s probably why she has done the too skinny thing for so long. She also doesn’t look very fit/toned anymore, so maybe that’s what you are picking up on rather than the weight itself.

    • Dia says:

      I think it’s more of the clothes she wears. A girl who has short legs doesn’t look good in skinny jeans like that with those damn shoes.

      • Stacey says:

        I think Leann is going to have a huskier shape as she gets older. Her mother is overweight and Leann looks more and more husky as she gets older and gains weight. I think her frogged-eyed boob job makes her look thicker than she actually is since she doesnt have much of a waist. Ive seen this before when girls with no waist get boob implants and they end up looking fat instead of curvier. It makes them look thick instead of curvy even when they arent fat. she needs to wear a push up bra otherwise those implants make her look like a linebacker.

    • Amory says:

      My comment was in response to a weight comment from someone else (that she has gained too much weight) that has now disappeared. Sorry if it appears totally irrelevant!!

  26. Jenna says:

    The third pic is hilarious. He’s got her in his sight and wants to put one square between her squinty eyes, tehehe.

  27. bettyrose says:

    I have this adorable but camera shy pup who I pretty much have to hold in place to take a picture with . Just yesterday at a bbq some was trying to get a pic and the pup kept squirming away. I don’t have a point except that human children are a little more entitled to having a say when they don’t want their picture taken and plastered all over the Internet. Puppies just have to live with it.

  28. Jessica says:

    “Agent Bedhead lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She and her little black heart can be found at Celebitchy.”

    Oh how I love this!!! LOL

  29. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    All I have to say is this–I know Brandi reads celebitchy–and I hope she just sits back and laughs. Even though I know that she must absolutely hate all the crap she has to go through with those two d-ckheads, but she just needs to laugh.

    Because one day soon, this is all going to come crashing down on them. And what a gossip day that will be-Leann’s twitter meltdown will be better than the “Twihard Meltdown of 2012″ (my fave cb title ever)

    And I will laugh and giggle all day, and spread the news to everyone I know.

    • brin says:

      You will have plenty of company!

    • littlestar says:

      I agree that Leann deserves what’s coming to her. However, I hope she doesn’t do anything stupid and drastic. As in harming the boys and/or herself… That’s what I’m concerned about :( . Otherwise, this is pure schadenfreude.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        You’re a better person than me–I can’t really muster up any sympathy for Eddie or Leann. Every time I start to, I realize that those two are like leeches, and if you try to confront them about anything they do wrong–they’ll deny it to your face. I’ve met people like that–where they’re doing something that everyone knows is absolutely wrong, and yet they will sit there and deny what they’re doing is wrong with a straight face.

        The only thing I’m worried about is if she hurts anyone else–because at this point for either of them to turn their lives around, they’d have to hit rock bottom. And it’ll take a little longer than that for both of them to do so. I read on Just say Jenn (from a poster who’s worked on the set w/Eddie) that Eddie gets pissed off when Leann comes on the set–like it affects his acting. The director on whatever project they were on, had a standing order for the PA’s to notify him if Leann ever came on the set. So you can bet that he’d have more opportunities for work without her (why I don’t know because he can’t act), add in all his girlfriends–he’s still a douchebag who’ll let his sugar mama do whatever she wants to his ex wife and kids.

        Leann will be easier–once she runs out of money and goes nuclear on twitter, I don’t think she can do much more than that–from what I’ve heard, Nashville is done with her. She’s been a brat and a nasty person since she was a little girl, and it was only her marriage w/Dean that grounded her. I’m sure that guy worshipped her–she seemed a lot happier and more at ease when she was with him. So I guess she’ll go to Daddy when it all breaks down, and hopefully she’ll stop being so ME ME ME. I doubt it.

        And littlestar, I am sending good vibes your way–I’ve been listening to “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” since you told me it was to be your wedding song….not that it was any hardship for me.

      • littlestar says:

        You are so right, Virgilia. She’s blown every single bridge in her life. It’s maddening – she has/had an amazing voice and had a good career at one point. But she destroyed it over her obsessions and stupidity. I never heard a thing about her unstability when she was with Dean, so you are on point in saying he grounded her. Eddiot is such a loser. I just canNOT imagine how any woman would be attracted to him. He doesn’t get enough flack imo.

        And thank you girl, your good vibes are appreciated :) . Wedding is this Saturday – Freddie will be my good luck charm ;) .

        P.S. Love reading JSJ too! Her site is my new guilty pleasure.

    • Megan says:

      sorry I use to be big team Brandi but honestly at this point she is no different then LeAnne. They are both famewhores who use this situation to stay in the press regardless of how it affects those boys.

      Now I am 100% against LeAnne calling those paps to make her look like a good step mom, and sell the happy family crap. She needs to respect her place, I have a huge pet peeve about celebrity step parents trying to sell themselves as parents but Brandi is not some innocent who doesn’t engage.

      Those kids deserve better then these three famewhoring losers using them and this twisted situation for attention. And all three are equally bad.

      • karmasabiatch! says:

        Megan, I think making Brandi part of any comparison to LeMann and how she behaves is pretty unfair. Clearly, LeMan has some major, unaddressed psychological issues. All Brandi has done in the past is stick up for herself and try to protect her kids. She sure didn’t ask for any of what has been done to her. She’s finally learned not to take the bait on twitter, etc. when Falcor starts pushing her buttons. How is a woman who’s had her whole life rearranged (plus having her babies hijacked) supposed to behave?

  30. newtsgal says:

    That 4th picture down pretty much sums up my thoughts about this attentionwh*re!!
    Wishful thinkin!?!?

  31. Christin says:

    Humility would be beneficial, especially if she ever wants people to take her and her music seriously. A whole lot has changed since the late 1990s, which is where she seems stuck.

    Shouldn’t she be going to the CMAs on Wednesday if she’s still A-list?

    Cute little Jake is too young to know what a horrible person LeAnn is. I think Mason is onto her. He probably hears her calling the paps, plus lots of other crap he shouldn’t be hearing. Will she be able to use them like this after January 1st? Or will the paps just blur out their faces?

  33. Anthea says:

    Whenever I see photos of her desperate try hard attempts at being a super duper ‘bonus’ mum (ugh) it makes me doubly grateful for my father’s long term partner who has been quiet, caring and considerate over a number of years until we got to know one another and who is now someone I like and respect.

    That’s how to be a good step-parent, to be there, be supportive, not take the focus onto yourself all the time and earn the affection of your extended family.

  34. Cindy says:

    Eddie is a despicable father and ex. There is no excuse for these years of child exploitation that he has encouraged. Just gross.

  35. Rita says:

    She and Eddie are just major fails. What have they done in the past 4 years other than have paps take pictures of them and post on gossip sites? They are nothing.

  36. Apsutter says:

    Classic case of a woman who needs to wear her hair down!! Her face needs the volume and support of hair around her face. I’m the same exact way…I have a tiny little neck and it looks heavy very easily unless I’m looking straight ahead. Bouncy hair helps to “balance me out” so to speak. More than anything she needs to stop with that ridiculous top knot and buns.

  37. Rita says:

    Today, LeAnn tweeted a picture of a bag of steer manure “someone” supposedly left in her drive way. Little does she know that “someone” has the initials EC which is that persons way of stating what was on his mind when he said their marriage is “functional”. As you all know, another word for steer manure is BULLSH-T!!!!

  38. Irishserra says:

    I feel really bad for those kids because I don’t see any stability in their immediate future. As nuts as LeAnn is, Eddie leaving her will upset any footing these children might be starting to find after their parents’ divorce. They will just get ripped out of this situation and then put into another as their father jumps from one crazy to the next and unfortunately for these children, even their own mother isn’t grounded enough to provide that for them.

  39. JillyRo says:

    I too feel sorry for the kids. LR and EC are selfish scum and although Brandi looks like she loves her sons, the way she acts could be improved upon. She’s on a silly show RHOB that shows her acting like a 15 year high school gal, the way she has and often starts herself stupid, idiotic spats with whomever (don’t these women have REAL worries in their lives, not juvenile ones like they fight about). Plus Brandi’s drinking is pretty hardcore. Yet Eddie and LR are likely partying it up just as hard. Poor kids, 3 adults in their lives and not one of them acts like one Think one day we will be hearing that those boys are in rehab or have issues of their own, poor things.

  40. JustNow says:

    A couple things. Could she be more pathetic? I haven’t read the comments above this one so these things may have already been mentioned. The pictures were obviously made to make people think LeAnn was alone with the children. She wasn’t. Someone said who was there that Eddie’s parents were just out of ALL pictures. Second there is another picture I saw of Eddie’s Dad literally taking the child out of LeAnn’s grasp so they were definitely there.

  41. Dia says:

    It has to be exhausting to have to keep up the happy marriage, happy life charade. Always, having to think of the next move…ugh This is why I have always said her emotional maturity is that of a 13 yr old. Always caring what other people think and trying to convince someone of her awesomeness.

  42. Jane says:

    What blows my mind is how physical she is with those kids. As a teacher if I did any of what Leann does to Jake, I would have lost my job by now. She’s a leech! It sickens me to no end how she gets away with this s***!

  43. Amy says:

    If she truly cared for those children, she would not be exposing her stepsons to the paps. If her husband had a backbone, he would and SHOULD be protecting his sons from all her crazy and insane drama. Is her money really more important than his own children??? There is a special place in hell for folks like these two.

  44. Singtress says:

    I can’t believe I am saying this…but I think the pics of her and her (cough) “Bonus” boys look loving and affectionate.
    I have boys the same age, and I can totally put us in these pics…playing and teasing each other.

    I do find the gun fingers hilarious though.

  45. dlo says:

    OMG those are the same jeans from the shopping trip!!! Sorry, I had to check it out myself. And the hair is nasty

  46. Leslie says:

    Has LeAnn filed a lawsuit against Star for having her on the Most Hated Celebrity List for 2013? And will she sue everyone who posted that LIE: DM, Huf Post, NY Mag, Fox News????

  47. HB says:

    Kid looks happy. To bad rags rag on her.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I agree; I can see why people dislike LeAnn so strongly, but it’s really reaching to say there’s weird body language in those photos.

      That’s pretty clearly a little boy having a goofy-good time with a lady who is honestly enjoying his company.

  48. What I find disgusting is she puts makeup and earrings on for the first time in weeks when she’s out and it’s all to pap out her happy family life. It’s more important to her to convince everyone of her blissfully happy life than it is to protect her “bonus” sons from being plastered all over the internet. You all give Eddie far too much credit. You talk like he has morals and a brain. That guy knows he is washed up and doesn’t seem to really care. He is not going to leave her. I bet you anything he is living his life and doing whatever he wants to do and she is supporting him cause she knows that’s the only way to keep him. This will go on until her money is low enough that he sees hard times. He is probably already shopping for a replacement but is having a hard time with his reputation. He can get the occasional waitress but don’t know about anybody with real money. After all, he said their marriage is functional! In dbag language that means what we are doing is working for me.

  49. dcypher1 says:

    At least she doesn’t look like skeletor anymore.

  50. Jennifer12 says:

    I wonder if EC encourages these outings to show people how he “suffers” and how his parents have to intervene while he is busy with his career to save the boys from her clutches. Is no one going to stop this lunatic from calling the paps on the kids? And she seriously needs to stop crawling all over Jake; it’s creepy.

  51. kami says:

    mom and son looking great together but i think she is very busy with her carrier too

  52. Christin says:

    Assuming the Taiwan concert on the 16th is still a go, will functional husband accompany his functional wife? She also has a whopping three concerts in the States scheduled in late November and early December. It will be interesting to see if her next round of ‘wrq’ brings an extra dose of drama.

  53. Rita says:

    Anyone still following this thread has got to go to Just Say Jenn’s twitter page and read about the Halloween Party!!! I hope CB will check it out because it’s incredible. Jenn doesn’t pull any vague blind items here. It’s a full on, flat out exclusive from three sources who actually attended the party. The snowglobe has imploded and there is bat sh-t flying everywhere.

    • Greta says:

      Thanks for the info. Just read it and it cured my headache! Was having a bad day but this turned my frown upside down! This is gonna get good!

    • briargal says:

      Correction–go to Justsayjenn.com to read about the fun? party!! Not her twitter page. Love her blog!

      Yep, three sources and yet LR tweets like everything is hunkydory! And she so enjoyed her Halloween. hehehe!

    • Christin says:

      That plus the newest gag-worthy blind (which could be them) are not all that surprising. After all, look at who we’re talking about.

      I still don’t expect him to bail out just yet. He may keep making excuses, because he seems the type who would look for an exit with a soft landing. Plus, he probably knows he’s ultimately controlling the puppet strings.

      In addition to wanting the happy family charade, she’s had no significant time gaps in engagements and marriages since she was a teen. It was AK to Dean and then straight to this one. She may be the type of person who thinks they can’t function without having someone. If she were to leave (a very unlikely scenario), my guess is there would be another person in the picture almost immediately.

  54. dlo says:

    same jeans as the shopping spree, eeeewww and the bun, what is with the bun? and its greasy

  55. Leslie says:

    I didn’t realize till a few minutes ago that Ediot has a movie premiere tonight–for a movie that’s actually coming out in theaters. And LeAnn hasn’t been tweeting about it all week???? She finally tweeted after someone asked if she was going or something. THEN she tweeted she was going. What’s up with that? Did she just find out about the premiere today? Weird!!!!
