LeAnn Rimes calls the paps, then pretends she doesn’t want to be photographed


Here are some new photos of LeAnn Rimes, out and about yesterday in Calabasas. She stopped by a Coffee Bean for a refreshing beverage, and somehow the paps knew exactly where she was and they were already set up to get the shot, because she totally called them because no one understands how the press goes after her all the time! I like the half-assed way she’s trying to cover her face. It’s like she knew she wasn’t fooling anyone, so she barely followed through. I guess she wanted people to see her unicorn t-shirt. What is it with her and unicorns? She tweets unicorn stuff all the time. It’s weird.

Did you know LeAnn and Eddie celebrated their third wedding anniversary last week? I know, there was no “Three Year Anniversary” interview, nor did LeAnn tweet about it a million times and post photos of the anniversary gifts that Eddie gave her (which she picked out and purchased herself). She did tweet this:

Which is positively Amish for LeAnn. Seriously, that was it. Of course, she’s been tweeting a lot about other stuff. She was doing a desert photoshoot for some magazine and she tweeted and retweeted a bunch of photos. Is something up with her? I don’t know. It could be that she – at long last – has learned how to keep some of her thoughts/craziness internalized. It could be that she hired someone professional to manage her press. Or it could be that she’s really second-guessing this whole Eddie thing these days. Take your pick.

    No mention of her major surgery for a hang nail. Crazy bitch.

  2. Jayna says:

    He probably didn’t do anything for their anniversary.

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Happy anniversary, you crazy lovebirds! You should be “proud of the life you’ve created” by cheating, lying, breaking up two homes, excessive tweeting, rehab, trashy public fights with Brandy, soccer games dressed like a pole dancer, bombing at the box office, hypochondria and drama. I would say many happy returns, but I doubt you’ll make it to your next anniversary.

  4. BendyWindy says:

    Jeeze. Three years? Seems like forever.

  5. NewWester says:

    Separation or divorce announcement before the end of the year.

  6. lem says:

    she actually tweeted a lot about the upcoming anniversary. and those desert pictures were apparently taken (like as in a photoshoot) while they were on their “anniversary” trip. no surprise eddie wasn’t in any of the pictures of the said trip.

    • Macey says:

      Apparently she took a fan she met on twitter (who happens to be an Olan Mills type photographer) with her on her blissful anniversary trip to take those lame photos on the road. Ediot was no where to be seen.
      I couldn’t imagine meeting up with strangers on twitter and considering them friends but I guess that’s all she has at this point.
      Not sure if anyone saw the pic on her timeline of her laying in the middle of the road, I can only imagine she’s mocking the term ‘speedbump”, ediot’s old nickname for her but not sure.
      Btwn that one and the home wrecker one, can’t even imagine what goes thru this thing’s head.

  7. Erinn says:

    Isn’t the unicorn thing another jab at Brandi? I can’t keep all of her passive aggressiveness straight, so I can’t remember the exact reasoning.

  8. Elisabeth says:

    so glad to see she managed to pull herself from death’s door and fully recover from her harrowing ‘hang nail’ surgery

  9. Deanne says:

    Good to see that she’s recovering from her harrowing surgery for her hangnail. Her diehard fan’s promised prayer circle seems to have worked. With everything going on in the U.S.and the world right now, leave it to LeAnn to whine about something so pathetic. I get that an infected hangnail is painful, but calling it surgery is asinine. They excise it. No biggie. The fact she continued to tweet after they froze her finger, speaks volumes as to how melodramatic she is. After their three blissful years together, why wasn’t Ed by her side while she faced this latest health trial? Not exactly an example of him being “amazing” to her. You’d think he’d take part in this latest staged pap shot, to maintain their brand, even if it’s just for the sake of their upcoming vh1 debacle.

    • Tracy says:

      Funniest tweet I saw yesterday went something like this… If your fingers are numb, how are you tweeting? Are u pecking the keyboard with your nose?

      • Deanne says:

        That’s hilarious and sadly, possibly true. Nothing gets between the Weener and keeping the public informed of her each and every ailment and exaggerated health crisis.. Nothing I tell you. Everyone’s mocking her. Tornadoes are terrorizing people and she’s tweeting during “surgery” for a painful hangnail. It’s not like gangrene had set in. She sure gets a lot of infections. Maybe Eddie should have given her some disinfectant soap to celebrate their three years of joy and utter bliss. That is about in his price range as far as gifts are concerned.

      • K-rock says:

        Haha! Awh I wish I could read the funny tweets about her rotten finger but she blocked me. Poor me. Excuse me while I drown my sorrows in vodka and self pity……

    • Lady D says:

      Did her fans really promise her a prayer circle? So glad I didn’t read that last week, when I read about a ferry going down with over 200 schoolchildren on it. I read about 234 Nigerian girls between the ages of 16-18 disappearing from the school they were studying sciences in. They were taken by a terrorist gang that hates the west and anything to do with their education. I’m very much afraid I can imagine exactly what is going to happen to those girls, and these clowns want a prayer circle for this narcissist?
      I’m going outside.

      • Deanne says:

        While I may have embellished by saying prayer circle, they were definitely offering up their prayers for their beloved Weener and her life threatening finger boo boo. Like I said, with all that is going on right now, whining and attention seeking for something so minor, is beyond pathetic. Who cares about the S. Korean ferry disaster, the kidnapping of hundreds of young girls in Nigeria (where are they?), or the death and damage due to tornadoes when a narcicisstic, has been is plagued with an infected hangnail. Her fans feed her sickness and fuel her narcicissm by encouraging this kind of stupidity.

  10. Glenn says:

    She looks sad in the 2nd pic. Dang near funny if her “missing UNICORN stolen” was reference to he absent philanderer husband stolen by yet another adulterous sk@nk! Wait LeAnn promotes you can’t steal a man, buy yes, but not steal.

  11. epiphany says:

    It isn’t just Leann who uses the paps for her own benefit, practically all celebs do this. If you scroll down, you’ll see a photo of a smiling Reese Witherspoon with a big wad of gum in her mouth – it was taken by the pap SHE hired weeks ago to follow her around and get photos of her looking healthy and friendly. You can see new ones every day of her coming out of the gym, buying coffee, walking with her kids – and smiling for the pap 20 feet in front of her. Don’t believe for a moment all the complaints celebs level at paps – they couldn’t, and wouldn’t, do without them.

    • JustMe says:

      Looney is no Reese Witherspoon, but she has definitely reached another level of desperation for attention with this so called hang nail surgery. I can’t wait to hear about her next illness or injury. Bug bite maybe?

      No pictures of anniversary dinner, card, gift, and cake are very, very telling. There was no big Happpppy Third Anniversary celebration. Why? Husband was MIA. Money is gone, they are in bad debt, and he can only stand so much of her arrogance and crazy.

  12. Quinn Parker says:

    What??!!!!!???? No VOW RENEWAL????? Color me amazed!

  13. Meredith says:

    CB how can you ignore the life or death hangnail situation? I mean she was in PAIN. ‘

    to be nice though, this is the most Leann she has looked in a long time. this is like her pre-eddie style

  14. Roly says:

    Whenever I foget my reusable cups and I buy a drink in a plastic cup I too want to cover my face in shame. Leann weeps for the landfill you guys!

  15. Sonia says:

    And still no wedding ring! Wasn’t wearing it in the bar either. Personally, the only time mine comes off is when it’s getting inspected at the jewelry store!

  16. Gianna says:

    I see she finally got hair extensions like B’s.

  17. K-rock says:

    I thought they were filming the new reality show? I don’t see them together much lately. Hmmmmmm……

  18. Chicagogurl says:

    I’m betting the studio for her new show is dictating how she needs to play nice an tone it down. They need people to like her to watch.

  19. Helvetica says:

    Her entire life is her marriage and I think that is sad

    • dlo says:

      her marriage is her life, and it is not sad, that is what she wanted so that is what she has. Remember, she could have played nice after she stole the big ediot and then her marriage might have worked out, but nooooooo, she had to go crazy all over the ex and now look what she has. Nope, not sad at all, it is her own doing and she knows it deep down inside

  20. Kenny Boy says:

    I’m weirdly rooting for her. She’s really talented and I actually love her latest album. I hope she’s waking up to the fact that Eddie is awful. Really, she’s known subconsciously for a while – one of her songs about him is called “Ruined” or “You Ruined Me”, I forget. Maybe she’s finally realized that Brandi Glanville is not the trashy Margo Channing to her trashy Eve Harrington.

  21. D-LIST STILL says:

    I think this new style of pap pics is just part of her scheme to reinvent her brand as she is calling it! Look, pictures showing her at her most intimate, vulnerable moments. LMAO. Also, notice she is obviously advertising one of the leather purses she is trying to include in her new brand by backing some “friend” that makes leather goods. I actually have a purse just like that in my closet from the ’70′s hippie days. Since their lavish beach vacations have been reduced to “camping” in a motor home on the beach he may have decided it’s time to start shopping again. I think no matter what she does to reinvent herself she has destroyed her reputation with all of her antics over the last 4 years. Nobody is going to forget her relentless rubbing it in the ex-wife’s face and her friends bullying of Brandi on twitter along with Leann’s bullying and her trying to de-value the importance of the boy’s Mother in their lives. Those antics are the real Leann and anything else is a thin veiled attempt to reinvent herself to make more money to keep Eddie happy.

    A unicorn in the swinging world is a single female… a hard to catch, almost mythical bi-sexual woman who joins a couple for, um… I’m pretty sure that’s what’s up with her unicorn references.

  23. zbornak syndrome says:

    This woman dresses like she is in High school. Pretty much, always. We all KNOW she calls the paps herself so why not try and look nice?

    Also, I have NEVER seen a photo of her without her phone in hand even when she is carrying a purse. Always in hand. Maybe except when she is performing on stage, but then I’m sure she sits it on a stool beside her and scrolls it in between songs.

  24. Rita says:

    Anymore, does she even qualify as a celebrity? I realize how low the bar “has been” (no pun intended) set but anyone can hire someone to take pictures of them holding a cellphone.

    • briargal says:

      You nailed it when you said “has been”!!! The only thing that makes her relevant today is her affair/marriage to a creep and her harassing his ex. Her singing is more like warbling and is reduced to lawn chair concerts (except in the winter, of course) then casino gigs, zoos and steak houses. She tried acting and failed at that. So naturally she has to notify the paps just to keep her mug in the news. Pathetic little loser!!

  25. Lili says:

    She’s so C list. Or even F list. Or… well, she’s history. If she actually called the paps, I’m not surprised. I’d be more surprised to hear that they actually went looking for her, because there are other, more interesting celebrities out there.

  26. JUST WONDERING says:

    I am just wondering if so called “celebrities” like Leann or Eddie ever get honest jobs to pay the bills? When the star has completely faded like for both of them, and the money is gone and no big money is coming in to pay for the mansions, cars, clothes and vacations, wouldn’t they have to think about getting a regular type of job? Like for her a regular gig in a bar 5 nights a week or for him like maybe selling insurance? LOL. Thought just crossed my mind. How do people like them who have no more millions coming in, continue to pay for their lifestyle?
