LeAnn Rimes looked kind of pregnant at the MusiCares event on Friday, right?


Here are some photos from the MusiCares event on Friday night honoring the truly wonderful Carole King. I LOVE Carole King. Sorry, I just had to get that out of the way before we delved into the mess of these photos. Surprisingly, I have no problem with LeAnn Rimes’ hair or makeup or the color of this dress at all. Her styling is really good here. But let’s talk about That Which Cannot Be Ignored: Bump Edition.

Celebitchy, Bedhead and I were doing, like, forensic analysis of these photos. Let me fair: in the photos of LeAnn full-on, she does not look pregnant in the least. I actually think that in the front view, she looks like she’s lost weight. But in all of the photos where you see her body in profile? WOW. That looks like a baby bump. Alternative explanation: the dress has a weird knot below the boobs and it’s possible that it’s messing up the side view. But… if she is pregnant, that would explain why she’s been so mysteriously quiet lately. The calm before the sh-tstorm.




I’m also including photos of some of the other attendees at the event, including the lovely Carole King, the lovely Sara Bareilles (I think she’s very talented), Lady Gaga looking like a lady who lunches, Gloria Estefan (ageless beauty – do you think she’s had work done?) and Yoko Ono (don’t make fun of her – she’s 80 YEARS OLD!). In this group, I think Gaga is the odd woman out, right?

    Nah, it’s the weird knot below the boobs. Ediot looks as thrilled as ever.

  2. mal23 says:

    I love Carole King. Tapestry is one of my favorite albums ever. That is all!

  3. hateonit. says:

    nah. she’s not. there were pictures of her in a leather dress recently and she had no bump. plus she looks like she lost weight not gained.. still hideous and Eddie is still skeevey and she def sucked all the youth out of him…lol

  4. Mia 4S says:

    Well her husband’s “career” is dead, he’s got to make himself useful. Actually I don’t think so, just a badly cut dress.

  5. lisa2 says:

    I don’t know.. they look good. I love that purple color with her hair. I have seen lots of women wearing gowns in that color pallet.

    I love the short white dress and the shoes.. very simple and elegant.

  6. Cleveland Girl says:

    Make fun of Yoko??? She is killing it!! She looks great!!!

    • janie says:

      LeAnn looks beautiful in these photos. I too think it’s the cut of the dress. Who knows with her.. She’s been abnormally quiet?

      • Cecilia says:

        I think she has been unusually quiet because she & Eddie are dunzo. In these photos it looks like she has been crying.

      • Tracy says:

        @Cecilia I think so too. At this point I think Eddie is getting paid per appearance with her. What other source of income does he have?

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think this is probably the best she’s ever looked…but God help that baby if she is pregnant (which I think is just an ugly dress). She doesn’t need to procreate at this point in her life, and it’s probably the only likeable thing about her right now. But God–I could see Eddie making a baby with her, if only to get child support. But that also depends on how much money she’s got left–which probably isn’t all that much.

      • the Original Tiffany says:

        She isn’t pregnant. In the DM there are pictures of her in her performing dress and it is tight and had lace up cut outs at the side. The article has tons of pics of her and Ediot and they looked really happy, to be honest. The other dress was grey and sparkly. I really don’t see all this unhappiness with them, they still look like two happy pigs in shit to me. I swear I think they are in it for the long(ish) haul.

        I actually think she looks really great here. Yep, I said it. But yeah, definitely NOT pregnant.

      • ncmagnolia says:

        Virgilia, the rumor’s been out there for quite a while that Ed’s been snipped. I agree with you, the fact that she hasn’t foaled yet is one of her few admirable qualities.

      • emmie_a says:

        I don’t see beautiful at all when I look at LeAnn. She might look good as opposed to her usual, but I still think she’s just plain unattractive. Part of it is her face but the other part is everything I know about her – it just makes her an ugly person, that makeup and hair can’t hide.

  7. Babalon says:

    I think this blog post, and others asking the same question, are the whole point of the gown.

    That dude is snipped. She’s crazy and apparently desperate to fake, and then ‘lose’, a pregnancy.


  8. Kiddo says:

    I think Yoko is actually the winner here. The look is fairly flattering with a splatter of zany that seems completely natural and not forced.

    Leann’s face looks really pretty. The make-up wasn’t overly dramatic and the purple was a very nice complementary color for her complexion. The knot is pushing the dress out at the waist. She doesn’t wear head to toe spanx, like some people, so she might have been caught, from the side, not sucking it in.

  9. LAK says:

    This is dress does make her look pregnant, but the skin tight black dress she wore to perform shows she’s not pregnant.

  10. Anna says:

    It’s the dress. In other photos from the event, when she performed, she’s wearing a completely figure hugging dress, and her stomach is as flat as can be. Of course, she could still be in her first trimester and not showing yet. Also, I would expect her to announce her pregnancy as soon as she’s at the end of the first trimester – she wouldn’t wait until the showing point, which would be much further in.

  11. Ellie66 says:

    Geez I hope it’s the dress those 2 should not breed! Yoko looks the best and Gloria looks really great but the dress is giving me a 90s vibe. Carole King can do no wrong I absolutely love her I grew up with her music !

  12. eliza says:

    It’s a poorly cut dress. No news here in my opinion.

  13. Kiki says:

    Aside from the dress belly, this is the best I have ever see Leann look. She actually looks amazing here.

  14. Cro-girl says:

    She actually looks really beautiful. I just don’t think she’s pregnant because we would have heard about it by now.

  15. Christin says:

    Much ado about nothing. The purple dress just has an odd, loose cut in the front. There are photos of her in a gold dress, very form-fitting, from the same evening as she sang with Tyler.

    Eddie took time to get his hair dyed, I see.

  16. Assistant Rachel says:

    She actually looks good here. And I don’t think she’s pregnant. At least I hope not.

  17. Melissa says:

    Carole King and Sara Bareilles. Two of my favorites. Blah to Leanne and Eddie. Although she does look very pretty here.

  18. Janice says:

    I don’t think she is pregnant just a bit of a belly

  19. loveisthecoal says:

    I think it’s just a trick of the fabric. She does look nice in that color. I LOVE Sara’s outfit, I think Gloria is a vampire, I actually think Yoko looks great and I want Gaga’s sunglasses–they’re very steampunk!

  20. Renee says:

    Yoko and Sara look amazeballs. (My daughter hates when I use that word but I totes love it…)

  21. Jane says:

    I’m surprised no one said anything about her lost boobs in that dress. Did she tuck them under her arms?

  22. Dirty Martini says:

    Not pregnant. But she looks fabulous….hair, makeup flawless. Dress color is great on her. The cut just isn’t flattering.

  23. Bread and Circuses says:

    You know, everyone in these photos is looking fabulous.

    Leann’s hair and makeup are really pretty. Lady Gaga’s dress is awesome–dramatic yet pretty–and I like the beaded belt a lot. Sara’s look is classic and flattering. Gloria looks amazing and sexy. Yoko is rocking that suit and looking fabulous doing it.

  24. courtney says:

    fertility issues run in Leann’s family so I doubt she’s pregnant it took her mom 12 years to conceive her probably with some IVF help. she has said though that her and Eddie definitely want children but that she doesn’t know when it will happen

  25. bettyrose says:

    Are all the other women pictured here single? Or is everyone else confident enough to walk the carpet without clinging to a human security blanket? If she left him backstage just once would he clumsily trip and fall into another woman?

  26. Marianne says:

    She could be pregnant, but I think its just the unfortunate knot right there. Kind of like how Cate Blanchett’s dress at the SAGs made her look pregnant thanks to all the extra fabric right there. Knowing Leann she probably chose that dress on purpose so people would speculate.

  27. Jayna says:

    Boy, LeAnn looks actually pretty here. She’s not pregnant because she performed in another gown, very tight. That dress looks soft and pretty from the front., and I love the color on her. She just never should have turned for side poses and photos. At that angle the dress is shapeless.

    This is the first time I have ever said comparing Brandi and LeAnn around the same time frame that LeAnn looks prettier. Brandi has overdone her fillers and botox and that juvenile, budget, outfit shopping for photo-ops and then her outfit barely longer than her a s s on Arsenio a few weeks back, LeAnn looks prettier for this outing. I love her hair like that and her makeup.

  28. shellybean says:

    LeAnn’s hair and face look really pretty here. I don’t think she’s pregnant. She wore another very tight dress that night or the next and her stomach was flat. It’s just this dress.

  29. msw says:

    LeAnn is so much prettier when she isn’t overdoing it–take that however you want, overdoing it on fillers, makeup, Brandi cloning, sexifying, being a biotch.

    God, I hope she’s not pregnant. She seems nowhere near mature enough to have a child.

  30. Meggin says:

    What is wrong with her eyes? Are they just really squinty? That being said, I love the color of her dress but not the style of it.

  31. themummy says:

    Not preg. If she hears of these rumors though, she will either lap them up like a starving kitten getting its first milk or go full-on into an eating disorder. Toss of the coin which it will be. I also wouldn’t put it past her to purposely wear a dress which would start those rumors. Gotta keep people talking, right? But yeah, I seriously doubt she is preg. Actually, my gut tells me she never ever will be.

  32. emmie_a says:

    So why wouldn’t you include pictures of the other gown she wore that night — the skin-tight, sheer gown that she performed in? The gown that showed zero bumb? You totally wasted your time analyzing her ‘bump’ – all you had to do was look at all the pictures from the event bc the other dress was tight and the sides were sheer and there was zero bumb.

  33. anne_000 says:

    Wasn’t there an article here a couple of weeks ago w/ a photo of her bare abdomen during a supposed work-out session & not looking pregnant? I think it’s the knot in the dress & that she didn’t get it custom-fitted to her body.

    • emmie_a says:

      That picture was from her anorexic days even though she tried to make us believe it was current. If anything the pictures from the last few days totally prove just how old that pic was – bc her body is larger now. It’s especially noticeable in her arms.

  34. nursemom says:

    What the heck is that line going down her cleavage in one if the pics where shes holdin Eddie? It looks like a ginormous vein but the location is unnatural & freaky lookin!

    On another note, best she’s looked in awhile. Both body languages suggest neither is super happy at this moment in life.

  35. Harleyilover says:

    I wonder if their kids eyes would be permanently shut at birth??

  36. Gell says:

    Why is Leanne’s eyes so squinty? And who is Eddie and what does he do?

  37. Tara says:

    Leanne’s hair an makeup look fine, but that dress is polyester curtain fug. The color is nice but otherwise? Wtf?

  38. Jag says:

    I think she has a fake bump in there to get people talking.

    Gloria looks amazing and I love her dress! I think she’s Botoxed but that’s it. I want her secret. lol

  39. Willa says:

    The color of the dress looks much better on Brandi. I’ve seen Brandi in that color recently. Maybe on the cover of her new book Drinking and Dating?
