Star: LeAnn Rimes allegedly in rehab for a profound eating disorder

I feel like an Old Person, but I remember when LeAnn Rimes had a cute figure. She was somewhat athletic, but she looked like she ate real meals and didn’t follow any kind of crazy dieting trends. But then she started bangin’ Eddie Cibrian, and that all changed. Pretty much as soon as they got together, LeAnn began to lose weight, not counting the extra heft of her bolt-ons, done by the same plastic surgeon that did Brandi Glanville’s, apparently. Anyway, with LeAnn now in some kind of rehab/mental health facility/spa (does anyone know for sure?), Star Magazine is asking if LeAnn is perhaps seeking treatment for an eating disorder rather than… “rehab for Twitter”, or whatever. Star Mag actually isn’t asking so much as their claiming that LeAnn is anorexic and bulimic and that Eddie is to blame for a big part of it:

LeAnn Rimes claims she checked into a rehab center last month to deal with “anxiety and stress.” But those close to her tell Star that the Grammy winner’s eating disorder is becoming a medical emergency – and that’s the real reason she’s seeking help.

“LeAnn’s friends are convinced it could kill her,” a source says. “She’s abusing laxatives and constantly forcing herself to throw up after eating.”

Though Eddie Cibrian has expressed his support for her decision to get treatment, he may deserve some of the blame for what’s happening: 30-year-old LeAnn’s weight obsession reportedly began when she got together with him.

The insider notes: “She says that Eddie loves skinny women and would never be with a woman who wasn’t tiny.”

A waitress at Hugo’s restaurant in Agoura Hills, CA who served LeAnn recently agrees that LeAnn has a problem: “She ordered nothing but steamed peas for dinner.” And yet, in the ladies’ room later, LeAnn purged even the veggies from her system.

“I heard her throw up,” says the waitress. “She came out and cried, explaining she had to do it – otherwise she couldn’t eat dessert with Eddie and still stay skinny.”

Ugh, that Eddie stuff made me particularly ill. I think many men have a physical “type” that they look for in women – some men always go for brunettes, some men always go for blondes, some men always go for big boobs, and on and on. (By the way, I’ve known men who always go for the same personality types too – some men love crazy, some men love type-A, some men love Little Lost Girls.) I’ve known men who always go for very slender, very petite, boyish-looking women too. But that’s my point – they look for their type and go for it. They don’t find a woman who isn’t really their type and try to body-shame her into having an eating disorder so she can “become” his type. Of course, it’s not like LeAnn gave him much of a choice – she was determined to have Eddie, and she “won” him. And so this is the life she’s carved for herself. If any of this is true, which… I mean, yeah. ALLEGEDLY. All of this is very “alleged”.

    *Gasps with fake-surprised voice* Ooooh… say it ain’t so!!

    Seriously, good for her, I hope she gets back in good shape quickly and that this rehab stint actually cures up ALL of her mental issues, including her need to bully other women and seek unnecessary attention and drama.

  2. Cherry says:

    If the bikini photos are recent, then it doesn’t look like she has some sort of severe eating disorder to me. She’s slim, yes, but also very toned and fit. She looks like she works out regularly, lots of crunches, squats and lunges and even push-ups by the look of it. Would she be able to do that if she was throwing up all the time?

    • RocketMerry says:

      “Would she be able to do that if she was throwing up all the time?”

      Answer: Oh, hell yeah. I did it for 8 years. It can and it will be done, if your mind is ill then there’s no restrain to what your body can tollerate.

      • Cherry says:

        Wow, RocketMerry, that’s rough. I hope you’re ok now. But what I was saying was, she looks pretty healthy in that top pic. But as some of the commenters below have already noted, she actually looks a lot worse.

      • RocketMerry says:

        I get your point. I just pointed that out because sometimes I feel that most people might not really understand how the mind and body relation of a person with ED works.
        I am so glad I got out of there with (relatively) little permanent damage; I can only advice any person who is still dealing with ED to ask for help, really ask, even just to family or friends, and make a commitment to yourself.
        Nobody can get out of it for you, you need to be the one doing the steps; but emotional support helps.

    • waitingforsummer says:

      Speaking from my horrible experiences…yes, she would. Often individuals suffering from bulimia are not terrrribly underweight. *hangs head in shame* good for her for being brave and strong enough to seek help. I don’t like LeAnn and am not a fan, but I wish I had her courage at this point.

    • Anne de Vries says:

      Actually, the way your body looks isn’t indicative of whether or not you have an eating disorder. An ED is about disordered thinking – you can be overweight and have an eating disorder.

    • Mava says:

      Sending love to all the people who struggled/struggle with an ED. :(

      One of my best guy friends went through this, and he worked out constantly to burn all the calories that he did end up putting in his body. Thankfully, he’s fine.

    • akua says:

      I agree, I did it as well – 4+ hours of hard exercise a day, 1000 or so calories. Most people looking at me could tell I wasn’t healthy, but not necessarily that I had an eating disorder. It can kill you and you can look ‘normal’.

      • Ladytron2000 says:

        I can vouch for that! I’ve suffered from anorexia and exercise bulimia throughout a large portion of my life starting when I was 13. Even a few years ago I used to work out 3-4 hours everyday and eat 1 meal. But I never looked as skinny as MeAnn, my body got smaller but never truly anorexic/malnourished. I was thinner, but never unhealthy looking. I’m a Latina – this ass don’t quit!

        Sadly, when I gave up my “bad habits” and I gained 70lbs, I also just plumb gave up. I wish I had that willpower again!

      • ShaCur says:

        Well said – I am finally “in recovery” (because “recovered” would imply the struggle is over)after struggling with bulimia since I was 12 – about 16 years now – and toward the end the only reason I initially sought treatment was because my body literally gave up and I was gaining a horrific amount of weight -quick. Especially with people who are solely bulimics it is very, very common to be slightly overweight simply because the amount of calories being ingested are never fully dispelled. Most people don’t realize that, nor do they realize we all don’t have “chipmunk cheeks” (god, I hear that ALL the time!). I never developed any serious health problems until the past 2 years. Chronic B12 deficiency and dehydration can lead to neurological problems (though treatable still very scary) and I have terrible GERD I’ll likely always need medication for. Also, lots of people don’t realize there is a lot of research being done that suggests ADHD and EDs may be related due to the effects of malnutrition on the frontal lobe. I also have ADHD and though I can’t know if it’s from my disorder I need medication to keep me calm and semi-focused. I never thought I would be struggling with what I am after seeking treatment but the simple fact is EDs wage absolute war and hell on a person’s body. After such a history – for anyone – things can, and often do creep up. It’s also not uncommon for a person with an ED to have a personality disorder though there is research that suggests the deprivation of nutrients has a profound impact on the frontal lobe as it is usually last to receive whatever sparse nutrients are available. Damage there can affect a person’s entire personality.

    • anonimouse8319 says:

      I hope that everyone keeps in mind that this is a tabloid. It operates are on kernels of truth in order to sell magazines. She may indeed be in the process of being treated for an eating disorder. She wouldn’t be the first person and she would not need infidelity, Eddie, Brandi, or the paps to drive her there. Perfectly low profile American women (and men) become untangled with eating disorders and they die every day from it without the least little mention in reputable magazines like STAR.

  3. Starsky says:

    See now that top pic you used, isn’t THAT bad…she actually looks pretty athletic/toned with a low body fat percentage.

    There are worse pics:

    But I think when she loses 5-10 pounds she starts looking really thin.

    I don’t feel bad for her per say because I think she brings it onto herself but in a way its like, if the whole thing with Eddie didn’t work out she would probably be embarrassed after all the bonus mommy and “I am his WIFE” crap she’s been dishing so she keeps trying harder despite the negative attention and effects on her self esteem/body.

    If she is really getting help for an eating disorder than I support that. But my support only goes as far as if she drops that lawsuit and moves on with her life. She’s made her point with it and hurting a family’s finances when that family include special needs kids is not going to help her image/career/mental well being at all.

  4. mln76 says:

    Well we know Eddie likes crazy vindictive famewhores Don’t we…….I predict 100 comments of psychobabble frothing at the mouth with glee at this womans destruction..

  5. brin says:

    Whether or not she’s in “treatment” for an eating disorder, I don’t believe this story. I can’t see Leann crying and admitting that to a waitress. Does she even have real friends? I think they are all “yes” people.

  6. Jayna says:

    Oh, please. She was way too thin for about 10 months. I’ve been a little too thin over certain periods in my life and was not bulimic or anorexic. But from Stress, etc. I think she’s on Adderall. The weight came off fast plus the stress of planning a wedding. Lean could stand to put on a few pounds still for her face, but her arms and
    legs are more filled out again. She’s slender not skinny now.

    The story of the restaurant is so not believable.

    • Starsky says:

      I think its believable only because they named the restaurant in print. I wouldnt believe it either if they just had said “a restaurant”.

      I would think they wouldn’t name a private business without at least having confirmation of a person who legitimately works there. Now will Leann deny it? probably.

      • Jayna says:

        Nah, I don’t believe it. I believe she’s on Adderall as a lot of women I know are (or Wellbutrin antidepressent known for weight loss) and they all dropped and kept weight off and have tons of energy. The way she talks so fast now, very clipped, I believe she’s on Adderall. I think her body looks good now in that bikini, very fit, but a few pounds would be better. Her face could use a few pounds. Back when too thin, I believe she dropped even more during the wedding (planning wedding weight loss stress) and loved all the attention she got, even bad, because she’s narcissistic.

        I believe more that LeAnn has a drinking problem and maybe substance abuse and I believe she has mental problems. I still go with Adderall for the weight loss and keeping it off. The people I know love it and think they are super women because of it with all their energy. Though, they all admit to feeling more edgy or aggressive off the Adderall.

      • NerdMomma says:

        Adding to Jayna’s post…Adderall is also known to amp up anxiety, which is Leanne’s stated problem. It also causes dry mouth, jaw clenching, and teeth grinding, and we all know that Leanne has recently had a lot of dental issues. I’m just saying, this could totally be Adderall abuse, and hopefully if so she is getting help for that!

      • Erinn says:

        Ugh. I think I gained weight when I was on Wellbutrin. It also gave me horrible nightmares.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @jayna, I think you’re onto something re: Leanne and the adderall. Additionally, I think you should be concerned for your friends because the behavior you’re explaining is consistent with amphetamine abuse. People who take adderall for ADHD do not experience the endless amounts of energy and the superman invincibility (for lack of a better word), when they take the drug. In fact, the drug makes them calm and focused. The edginess and love of the drug are common with abuse of adderall and other amphetamines. Those women you describe sound like addicts who need help.

      • Ho hum says:

        Great now leann will sue the restaurant

    • I.want.cake says:

      Jayna I think you nailed it. I took adderall for a few years, got skinny like Leann, real high energy with anxiety and semi compulsive behaviors, like she is with Twitter. When I stopped taking it, all that stuff went away.

  7. MoxyLady007 says:

    Eating disorders are horrible. So hard to recover from. Everyone suffering from one has my sympathy and everyone recovered has my admiration. You can do it! :)

    They mess with your mind in a profound way. I think she already had a personality disorder. An eating disorder on top of that completely explains the explosion of crazy we have all seen.

    It doesn’t make anything she has done ok by any means. Hell, she might even have put this out there for sympathy. BUT it does make sense.

    Hopefully she will get the help she needs for her eating disorder (because obviously) and her personality issues. Borderline personality disorder doesn’t just go away, but treating the eating disorder will lessen her mania by a good amount.

    Good luck to everyone caught in hurricane Leanne.

  8. Phil says:

    I just still can’t get over the fact she’s freakin 30. Anyway, if it’s true I am in full support of getting help with eating disorders, no matter the person. Especially if it involves medicine or laxatives, that stuff can really tear up your body for weeks after you stop taking them.

  9. lem says:

    i don’t believe this ONLY because she’s been trying to paint herself as the victim from the get go and now, this is the perfect excuse that gets people to back off and treat her as a victim. sorry but i don’t have an sympathy for this nutjob.

  10. Thalia says:

    Don’t believe this story from Star at all, though I wouldn’t be at all surprised if LR is bulimic and/or anorexic. Like, as if Leann Rimes would:
    a) puke loudly enough for a waitress to hear (bulimics are pretty good at puking quietly) unless the waitress was inside the women’s restroom. b) admit to a waiter she is bulimic (as if any bulimic would do *that*) especially considering her fame and the waitress would go to the media and she knows it and c) puke peas up, but not binge on the dessert and puke the dessert.

    I believe most things reported about Leann but this story is so off-the-wall unbelievable, on every conceivable level, its ridiculous. Not one thread of it makes any sense.

  11. LateAgain says:

    A dangerously low electrolyte level will cause people to have delusions. I watched as an ordinarily very grounded neighbor was taken out by ambulance one day because she’d been starving herself.

    And, slightly off topic:

    Here is exactly how a happy, well-adjusted and well-loved person reacts to supposed “cyberbullies” or otherwise:

    Ever since I read this article I have been waiting for a place to post it.

    Also, as per her announcement that she intends to donate whatever she might win by her lawsuit against the schoolteacher — One of my closest friends is an exec at a huge non-profit and she says that given the source of the donation, it is highly unlikely that any charity, now matter how desperate, will want to accept it because of the source and all the publicity that will come with the money. Even if it is not publicized, to take money from the sale of a schoolteacher’s house — and esp one who has kids — at the hands of someone as wealthy as Leann. They do not accept ill-gotten gains.

    • Esmom says:

      Oh, yikes, your mention of electrolyte levels made me think of Terri Schiavo (sp?). That’s how she ended up in a coma, I believe. Horrible.

    • Riana says:

      Ironic, she and Kris have so much in common.

      Both women are letting their daughters be a side-show freak for a national audience because they’re getting paid for it. Except HB is a child who needs an adult looking out for her, not a jaded morally flawed 30 yr old.

      I think she doesn’t care because her pockets are being filled, not because she’s especially happy or well adjusted. Same reason Kris Jenner doesn’t care if her daughter is flipped upside down and straddled on camera so long as the reality tv show has good ratings.

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      Wait, she said WHAT?!? She wants smiley to sell her damn house?!?! Why has this not been covered here! Kaiser or Bedhead, please report on this!

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      Leanne said what now about smiley selling her house???

      • Jezi says:

        No it was Kim who said in a Radar Online article that what does Leann want from her “does she want my house?”

        She wants to take money away from a household with 2 teachers and 6 kids and give the winnings to a charity. Instead of course generously donating her own money for it.

      • moxylady007 says:

        But Leanne said she would give the “winnings” (ie. destroying Kim’s life like the bully she is) to charity?

        Blood money.

      • Macey says:

        That whole giving it to charity is a bunch of hooey. How does anyone know they will actually get it,(I think this with other celebs that make a big charity give announcement). its not like we’ll have proof. except with LR I think she is tacky enough to post a pic of the check or something. Its just like she wont do any charity event without being able to post a pic of it so ppl can see it. she only does that shit to try and get ppl to like her, not for the actual cause. I dont mean just the Smiley case but in general. her charity “work” is never anything more than a PR move.

    • Masque says:

      That’s interesting about the possible donation refusal. If I were the charity, I would turn around and give it back to Smiley. :)

  12. Birdie says:

    I am only posting this interview from her and you will be the judge why she is in “rehab” :

  13. Photo Jojo says:

    This makes me so sad and angry. My husband (second marriage) also had a type – thin girls with great butts. I’m a size 12 and have a huge butt! :) Ya know what? In his type now. He loves me and is attracted to me, the whole package of me, and never wants me to change. He saw a photo of me about 10 lbs lighter and the man took one look at it and said “you look sick in this picture, what happened?” Eddie is an @ss hat, and while I am NO fan of LeeAnn’s, I just want to take her by the shoulders and shake her and tell her “Honey if he really loved you, it wouldn’t matter.” We aren’t talking about the difference between being morbidly obese vs a healthy weight, this is pure aesthetics and that she’s doing this to her body for this jack@ss just makes me so sad for her.

    • Jezi says:

      And Jojo that’s exactly how Leann wants you to feel. This woman has zero good intentions ever. She wants to be the victim in every situation. I can almost bet you that if her and Eddie do split up, she will make him the monster. Not that he isn’t one but she will make it sound like he manipulated her and she will make people feel sorry for her. She is responsible for her actions and she is the cause of her own problems.

  14. SolitaryAngel says:

    I don’t know if I believe this story or that she’s in actual rehab. If she IS, and this story is true then I hope she’s trying to get healthy for the right reasons. Most of me, however, thinks that she did all this to herself; she made her bed and she can throw up in it. *shrug*

  15. Mava says:

    Honestly, if she could just stop lying, manipulating, bullying and being in general an egotistical nightmare I would feel sorry for her. Her self-esteem must be in tatters to exhibit the type of behaviour we have so far observed. This story may be the tabloids creating drama, but I can definitely see this being true. If it is, good for her for addressing her issues and getting help.

    I just have a hard time believing she’s getting “treatment” for anything, I think she’s vying for sympathy. This is what happens when you lie, girl who cried bullying. People stop believing you at all.

    Don’t even get me started on that greasy moron Eddie, but she stalked it and married it. If he will cheat with you…

    I guess karma is finally sneaking up on her.

  16. TXCinderella says:

    LeAnn looked good back when she was with Dean. They lived a healthy lifestyle. She said in one of her interviews that Dean showed her how to eat healthier and exercise. Now that she’s with Eddie, she looks way too thin.

    • Jayna says:

      I had a co-worker in my early twenties who showed such ugly behavior at times, weird thought processes, and then got married to a guy who wasn’t good for her, and her not good for him. Her behavior was worse and shallow. She divorced and started dating a great guy, who was very powerful and charming and a catch, and I thought he would tire of her. Instead he was great for her and I saw such a change in her and her ugly behavior mostly changed for the better. He handled her well. He saw the good in her and didn’t accept the other behavior. She loved him so much she began to change in a good way. I think Dean was the same for LeAnn. He was good for her. Eddie has brought out the crazy in LeAnn and he’s not man enough to tamp down on it and guide her as an older husband of 40 should do, not encourage her behavior.

  17. LeslieM says:

    I don’t want to offend the girls who have had eating disorders at all but I don’t think that she has one. I think this is just so misinformation to recover from the lack of support she has gotten for her claim she is suffering because of cyber bullying. Everyone knows she has a problem with narcism and perhaps some sort of adjustment disorder which I believe means in part that you think everything in the world is about you. Again not to offend I think her body is athletic and amazing but I guess that she could have bulimia anyway like some of you have said. But she is getting treatment I think for thinking she is the most important person in the world. Anyone agree?

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      I think she had an eating disorder. Or perhaps abused ADD meds. But it’s not her baseline problem at all.
      I def think she is grasping at straws, to make herself look like the victim. So many very prominent people have received treatment for eating disorders without all this attention- seems off. Regardless of the issue, I hope she actually gets help fir her myriad of problems.
      But she needs to drop the law suit asap.

    • TXCinderella says:

      She could make it easy on herself if she would get off of Twitter or Facebook, or whatever media she is on, but she obviously wants the attention.

      Chatcat-You are so right. You can’t treat narcissism. I know a few and they are evil!

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      I think you could be correct – I like your last sentence which sums it up perfectly . LR reeks of naricissism and, by her behaviour towards Brandi, comes across as borderline as well.

  18. zelly says:

    i doubt there is much profundity involved

  19. Chatcat says:

    Yes, they are treating the eating disorder because narcissism is untreatable.

  20. lucy2 says:

    I bet there’s a multitude of issues she needs treatment for – ED, drinking, maybe drugs, and a million mental/personality problems.

  21. Melissa says:

    Guys really do have physical types, much more so than women. I may prefer a certain type guy, but I don’t think I’ve ever actually dated my preferred type! As someone once told me when I was a teenager and they were going to their 15th or 20th H.S. reunion – “Looks and body fade. Go for somebody you can talk to.”

    • Jenna says:

      Some do have hard held types, yeah. But I’ll tell you something find amusing as hades… the ones that have the most strictly kept ‘type’, when they break it, they REALLY break it.

      Before me? My husband literally dated a strong of women – all the way back to jr high – who could have been twins with each other. At least sisters. Every last one was 5′-5’2, red hair, itty bitty, and built very fey (delicate features, no boobs, no hips).

      ME? (Who he dated once, 9 years ago and then we settled down together!) I’m 6’2, a 34DDD (when I met him I was a heavier and larger 44HH) black hair (sometimes blue, green, white). The joke tends to be he dated Gabrielles, but married Xena! To this day, when we meet old friends of his, they will literally try to look -around- me to find his wife, because obviously… can’t be me. It’s odd. I’ve found that men tend to often stick to a type when dating, but most of the happy marriages/long term relationships I’ve seen are with the exception to the rule.

  22. KellyinSeattle says:

    If she does have an eating disorder, I wish her healthiness. But, I’m also going on record to say that as soon as she’s out of rehab, I see her going on a bunch of shows, like “The Talk”, “The View”; anyone who will have her, and play the strong, “I’m a victim and an overcomer”. If she would deal with her issues in private, people would just let her be and not even notice her. But she’ll draw attention to anything she can. Seems she really wants to be America’s Sweetheart.

    • LeslieM says:


      I hadn’t thought about the talk shows, but that is exactly what is going to happen. She’ll get a PR person who will tell her all the right things to say.
      The only thing that would move me is if she said,
      “I appologise. I became very self absorbed and did some awful things. I hate the way I was and want to live a good and humble life.” the victim thing will never work for people who post here, but people who watch the veiw will feel sorry for her because all those women will say, “Poor you. It’s awful what happened to you.”

  23. judyjudy says:

    Because someone who purges peas is going to tell the waitress. Give me a break.

  24. Nava says:

    I’m going to be a lil’ bitch here and say that I really don’t care about LeAnn’s problems. She brought this on all by herself, and now she’s a fricking ”victim?!?!” Maybe Miss Rimes should volunteer at an eating disorder center, (hospitals) and witness teenagers who actually have used suctioning devices to get rid of spit in their mouths, because they thought they would gain weight from it. And then while these kids were sleeping, their heart rates dip down to 20′s, 30′s, & 40′s….So Miss Rimes, a lot of people don’t like you because you are just evil. With all your former star power, you really could have been a postive role model, however, YOU CHOSE to act like a high school mean girl, you got ”the prize” (Edoit) there wasn’t any need to shove it down everyones throat, if anything, YOU should have been kissing Brandi’s butt, but YOU couldn’t do that, and now you want THE WHOLE WORLD to feel sorry for you? I’m sorry, I just can’t do that… btw…I still think she looks like Michael Jackson in those sunglasses….

  25. Stacey says:

    First off let’s not pretend that LeAnn isn’t delusional, because, OBVIOUSLY, but this line here:

    “She came out and cried, explaining she had to do it – otherwise she couldn’t eat dessert with Eddie and still stay skinny.”

    Are you freakin’ kiddin’ me with that? Not even LEANN would tell a waitress that. That line is so unbelievable it made me laugh out loud in my seat!

  26. Paloma says:

    I wonder if Eddie is going to get fed up some day and leave her?

  27. Rita says:

    Good Lord, all this “LeAnn has such courage” and “I do hope rehab solves her problems” and “I know she’s going through a difficult time”.

    Poppycock!! LeAnn is only “RUMORED” to be in rehab so she doesn’t have to face the media concerning her lawsuit against a woman who has adopted 4 handicapped children (Imagine the good character in that woman).

    LeAnn Rimes is the most vindictive and manipulative bitch on the planet. She has not an ounce of goodness in her so let’s wake-up and understand this “rehab” crap for what it is.

    At the end of the month she’ll drop the lawsuit (after her “vindictive bitch” has been satisfied) claiming that “rehab” made her into a new woman with a righteous perspective.

    (Note: I think “poppycock” is french for bullsh-t but I’m not sure since I don’t speak french and the google translation makes no sense).

    • brin says:

      Rita, I believe it is also Leann’s nickname for Ed’s dong. Or is that papawcock?

    • Jezi says:

      Rita ITA with you. If she is at a rehab facility it’s probably Promises and Darrell Brown’s boyfriend works there. So her restrictions are not intense so to speak. But if I could put money on it, I would say she’s holed up at Darrell’s home. She is evil and manipulative and has been, like you said before, planning this entire situation for months. She can drop the lawsuit all she wants but I’m sure Kim will want to file a countersuit and will not give up. Her name has been defamed numerous times since this stupid lawsuit. She has been harassed, villafied and has suffered emotional distress. I can’t even tell you how many anxiety filled messages and phone calls I received from her. She is one tough cookie though and I can bet you she’s not going to be bullied by some has been country singer.

        Rehab uses meditation and tranquil imagery to sooth a troubled mind. You might suggest the following to Kim:

        A demur little female mouse, wearing a pair of sunglasses and six inch Prada stilettos, strolls along a rock ledge with both hands behind its back while basking in the morning sun (It’s my imagery and I can wear what ever I want). Circling over head, a hideous lizard-faced vulture with red eyes of molten evil begins its dive. The feathered messenger of death is enraged when the rodent pulls one hand from behind its back to extend a taunting middle finger while holding a confident smirk on its face (Is a female rodent a rhododendron?). With razor sharp talons flashing in the morning light, the kill is expected to be quick and clean but suddenly, the fashionable little creature draws the other hand from behind its back and says:

        “Borrow this, BITCH!”

        As the sound of rolling thunder echoes down the canyon…..fade to black.

        (Oh yeah, I almost forgot. In a nest across the canyon, a mongrel mutt sits licking itself.)

      “Foutaises!” would be the word you’re looking for. And yes, i also think the rehab is BS and she’ll use it for PR.

    Any man you have to “keep yourself skinny” for, isn’t worth it. Why are women so afraid of being left? If he leaves you over your weight, he wasn’t worth it! Grow some balls ladies! Move on.

  29. Memphis says:


    The public isn’t reacting favorably to her made up law suit, so she is yet again trying to find the best way to make her self look victimized.

    Her reasons for “treatment” went from “I just need to be more happy and more healthy, but I’m fine” to “cyber-bulling by twitter haters” to now having an ED.

    Not. buying. it.

  30. emmieapricot says:

    I thought everyone just assumed she has an eating disorder!? She had never been that thin before and it’s obvious that is not her *natural* body type.

    And she lies about everything so did anyone really believe she was in rehab for anxiety/bullying? If she’s even in rehab.

    And maybe Ediot likes thin girls. But LeAnn chose him and knew what he liked. I can’t really put blame on him (if this is true) for her ED. But, you have to wonder why he likes boy-like bodies.

  31. tru tru says:

    nahhhh, I’m not buying this story, poor LeAnne HAS to stay thin because Eddie makes her or he’ll leave…

    it was HER obssession w/someone else’s husband and then she took her obsession to a whole different level when she married him. She harrassed Eddie’s EX…she made sure the kids LOVED her more (so she thinks)

    She probably has asked Eddie if a certain body type was attractive and she ran w/it.

    not feeling sorry for her and I must admit her PR folks are busy as “a cat covering up shit”with these angles for sympathy…no maam and no thank you to this SPIN.

    actually I can see her getting stared at by a waitress for the wretching sounds and she started crying because she was caught.

    to those w/or that HAVE experienced an ED, you are courageous and strong continue the fight.

  32. Jayna says:

    I find it interesting the name of this facility hasn’t been listed or leaked by LeAnn. Very strange. She’s the type that would state it. I wonder what type of facility she is really at, probably a glorious mind, body, and beauty spa that is all about healthy eating, yoga, hiking. Not really a mental health rehab place.

    • TheTruthHurts says:

      Exactly. And how is it pap shots of Lilo in rehab that you can tell were not planned show up, but no pap shots of LeAnn anywhere? Also where is Eddie? Why have we not seen ONE pap shot of him since this?

      • nomorerimes says:

        Because LR didn’t call them! When someone a while back mentioned that we always saw LR in the pap pieces but never EC alone–all of a sudden there is a pic of EC supposedly alone??!! She reads all these threads and responds! So how about LR–where is the pap always following you around??

  33. G says:

    Nope don’t buy it. She’s on a beach somewhere with drink in hand looking through Brandi pics to see how to dress next week.

  34. Jessica says:

    Sigh. Oh, Leann. I don’t know what I think about this story. I think her PR people are throwing so much crap out there trying to deflect from the incredibly bad reputation she is getting from this LOLsuit. Clearly she has some kind of issue with her body. She never looked like this before. She always looked like a healthy girl. Personally I think she has a voice in the back of her head telling her she has to be as hot as she can for Eddie to not cheat on her — which we all know won’t do squat as it is VERY likely he is and has been for quite some time. I absolutely believe he makes her feel insecure whether he intends to do that or not, I have no idea. I see a woman who is a shell of her former herself and IMO Eddie is the cause. That said I 100% believe she has a personality disorder of some kind. My gut tells me stories like these are being planted to garner some sympathy and so its hard for me to believe it any of them. BUT, if she does have an eating disorder and she is in fact getting treatment for that then I do applaud her for that and hope she is successful. I do feel in some way that all of this backlash is her karma, however I would never wish for anyone to receive karma in the form of serious health issues such as an eating disorder. I do hope she gets better and gets her body image issues under control.

    • Relli says:

      I totally agree 100% with your post.

      When i saw this story on Jezebel Midweek madness post on Wednesday i was hesitant to believe this story. Not only is it STAR but also because I know she didn’t look like a bobble head when they got together. Oddly enough Radar had a bikini photo montage to Leeann on her birthday which, was hilarious in its own right but i had pictures of her on e the beach with Cruddie right after they went public and she was definitely no twig.

      No one on any site is buying this lawsuit, I think her people need to stop saying yes to her and tell her straight up the truth on this make her come off.Otherwise they are all going to be out of a job. Is she even invited to the upcoming country music award shows this year?

      • Jessica says:

        I agree about the PR folks. She really needs someone working for her who will say , listen this is NOT good for your career and you need to drop this immediately if you have any hope of having ANY kind of career in the future. Problem is I also believe she doesn’t have people like that around her on purpose.

  35. sapphire says:

    If she’s at Promises, she’s not even close to being serious about getting therapy or even “tools”

  36. Andrea says:

    Just to make it clear: I had a roommate who was overweight who had bulimia. I heard her throwing up. not everyone has to be rail thin to have the disorder.

  37. heatheradair says:

    I remember watching a (totally uncomfortable) TV interview with her and Eddie, and he said he “fell for her” when she threw a softball so hard it nearly took his arm off — and he knew he wanted to be with a girl who could have fun with sports.

    Meaning strong, fit, healthy, fun-loving.

    Meaning not a string bean.

    Meaning whatever piece of this is being tossed at Eddie as “his fault” for liking skinny girls and driving her to “puke up dinner in favor of dessert” seems like a convenient way to blame and remove responsibility from Our Lady of the Horse Teeth.

    Blame never healed anyone.

    • Memphis says:

      I remember hearing that and thinking he can’t even come up with a reason as to why he wants to be with her, other than the fact that she can throw a ball?!? Really! Yeah, that’s a ringing endorsement of true love if I ever heard one ! LOL

      Not I thought she was beautiful, not she is an amazing person, not even she’s willing and easy…it was she can throw a ball.. LOL

    • Jessica says:

      I think its his fault to a degree if he is in fact saying things to her that make her feel like she needs to change herself to make him happy. Ultimately though the decision to do all those things and make herself over lies entirely on her. If he is treating her that way obviously it wasn’t a big enough thing for her to not be with him. Its obvious she’s head over heels for the guy. And its also obvious that feeling is not reciprocated.

    • Byte Me says:

      “Blame never healed anyone”.

      You hear that Lindsay & Dina Lohan??

  38. TheTruthHurts says:

    This story is BS for the simple fact that you would purge the DESSERT not the non-caloric Veggies. Duh.

    • foobie says:

      PRECISELY. And if LR wants to go all the way with the calorie restriction, then surely she can purge twice. What’s there to stop LR from going back to puke up dessert?

      I’m not saying this to be flippant or unsympathetic (I’ve had an ED myself), but the story just doesn’t add up.

  39. LeeLoo says:

    She’d been looking healthier before she went to rehab. But I can believe this story to be true.

    The relationship between Eddie and LeAnn seems to be a very toxic one. I can’t say I 100% blame either of them. It just is and this relationship has changed LeAnn into a terrible person. I hope her time in rehab helps her realize these things. It’s so sad to watch someone destroy everything that was potentially good about themselves for their relationship. Add a personality disorder on top of that too. It’s just bad.

    LeAnn is a potentially dangerous person. As her life begins to collapse all around her, I would steer clear of her. She could become an even bigger danger to have contact with.

    • Jezi says:

      That’s the thing, Leann has always been a terrible person. She sued her own father when he laid down rules when she was 15. Her stepmom back then also recorded Leann saying that she can cry on cue in court so that she can win the case. All of Leann’s bad behavior was swept under the rug back then. If you google you can read about her behavior. The difference now is that her bad behavior is being picked up on and she doesn’t have the resources to hide it much anymore. Plus given that the girl has mental issues, the older she gets, left untreated, the worse it gets.

      • LeeLoo says:

        Oh I’ve read about all of that. I know she is capable of total manipulation and what LeAnn wants, LeAnn gets. I still feel bad for her. She got exactly what she wants in Eddie and she is going to suffer for it. I think she’s a dangerous person and is only going to become more dangerous as time goes on.

        But I still feel bad for her. She is still a person who is suffering and she causes damaged because she is damaged. I do hope she is able to turn her life around although I know the chances for that are very slim.

      • Jezi says:

        She won’t change because she doesn’t think there is anything wrong with her. She believes it’s everyone else. I actually fear for the people in her life that didn’t have a choice like Jake, Mason and Brandi. I agree with you, she is dangerous.

      • brin says:

        I agree Jezi, she has always been like this and she’s just getting worse. I have no pity for her but I feel for the people she hurts.

      • LeeLoo says:

        I don’t know. My personal opinion is that there is no need to bring up LeAnn’s past and rake her over hot coals as much as we do. Her words and actions speak pretty loud and clear. She has ruined her own career by what she has done and how she chooses to react to everything. At this point I feel like everyone is trying to justify why we rag on LeAnn as much as we do and feel like a dead horse is being beaten. Yes, I believe she is dangerous and I believe she has no business being in the lives of Eddie’s kids. But at the same time, I see no reason to give this vile woman any further attention be it positive .nd especially if it is negative. By giving her more attention of any kind you are merely REWARDING her, not punishing her.

      • Jessica says:

        I fear she will have a meltdown of epic proportions if/when Ediot leaves her. Seriously, I am not joking at all.

    • Jezi says:

      If you scroll down through the article her dad claimed she was having an affair with Bryan White who was engaged at the time.

      • LeeLoo says:

        None of this is new info, Jezi. I still stand by what I said.

      • Jezi says:

        No I know, it’s old. It’s not only for you to see but others who come on and want to feel bad for her. I’ve seen what she does. I know the people personally who she victimizes. I’m happy that the world is now realizing it to.

      • nomorerimes says:

        Glad you are getting the “old info” out there for people like LeeLou. A lot of people are feeling bad for LR which they shouldn’t do as she brought all this on herself and isn’t the innocent person she is trying to make people think she is. No sympathy for this manipulative venomous person!

      • Relli says:

        Oh see i think its incredibly interesting the things from her past that both you and I believe Rita have brought to light in these Lee Ann post over the last year. Suing her dad, family struggles, issues with boys as a teen Andrew whats his name in particular.

        I think that most people like me just always assumed she was the quiet one, the one not wanting to be a celebrity but an artist and when all this unfolded it was BOOM! Where did all of this come from!?!?!

        When in reality it had been a slow burn of crazy not unlike Britney, Amanda Bynes,or Lilo. Even in Country Music which, carries a more wholesome image overall, a person cannot escape the curse of the child star. I think Tina Fey summed it the best, how can you parent someone when they are supporting the family and you? Its a shift in power that makes it difficult for the parents to call the shots. I cant recall if she said it in an interview or if it was in Bossypants. But it was based on her observations of White Oprah and Lilo during the filming of Mean Girls. To me it makes sense why entitlement is so strong in these ladies who have experienced fame so young. If you can control those who are supposed to be in control you, then why cant you do it to everyone else?

        But you know what i have noticed?
        NO ONE in the Country Music genre has reached out to her publicly to offer their condolences or well wishes? Has she made herself the Lilo of CM?

      • Jessica says:

        Relli, I have thought the same thing. How did she go from flying totally under the radar for years and years to becoming a tabloid fixture? It is probably the case though that it was all either covered up much better or now that she did something so “scandalous” as have an affair with a married man, there’s all this attention on her now and it can’t be hidden. I am not surprised she’s not getting public support from the country music scene. For one, she is not really a player in that industry anymore. Its all about Carrie and Taylor and Miranda now. Two she has made enough bitchy comments publicly about other artists before that she’s probably not too popular in Nashville anyways. IMO any chance she had to make a place for herself there again was shot to shit when she decided to exploit the affair and trash the ex in an album. This drama over the last few weeks were the nails in the coffin of her career I think. And other celebs are wisely distancing themselves from her. Her own husband hasn’t even made a public statement about the lawsuit and that says a lot to me.

      • Relli says:

        @ Jessica

        Exactly! How did this fly under the radar for so long? was it that no one was interested in her until she turned in some ESCANDALO material or is that as she become more unhinged people started paying attention?

        Also I agree that she is no longer a player in the CM scene. Your right every upcoming award show is splashed to the high heavens of picture of Carrie, Taylor and Miranda.

        @ Jezi, interesting that Cruddie was not her first affair, allegedly!

      • Ming Lee says:

        the cmt article is extremely telling. it shows a girl who has been trying to manipulate everyone around her since day one.

        i find it funny that they started the legal claim with the quote from leann: “I am not the sweet little girl you think I am. There is a dark side to me, and you are going to see it.” and then top that off with them trying to clean up her image after the lawsuit with a song where the proceeds are donated to charity..

        it sure seems like history is repeating itself cause the issues weren’t solved the first time around.

        i find it interesting giuliana rancic didn’t tweet anything to leann after hearing about her going to ‘rehab’.. seeing that the two of them bonded so well over being skinny etc and that they were ‘destined to meet’ as i think leann put it

  40. DEB says:

    Um, “they’re” claiming ??

  41. nomorerimes says:

    All lies in my estimation–rehab–treatment–cyberbullying and now eating disorder. In the People article announcing her going in for treatment “her rep confirms she is not seeking treatment for an eating disorder or substance abuse.” Her threatened lawsuit excuse is not going over well so now to gain sympathy–all of a sudden she has an eating disorder??? She doesn’t know how to tell the truth as she has lied so much. I seriously doubt she is in any kind of treatment other than a spa to relax her troubles away! Thank goodness though she has been staying off Twitter unless she has opened a different account to talk to her bullyng friends.

  42. moxylady007 says:

    OK- lets delve into this chestnut a bit. Leanne tries to turn into Brandi when she and Eddie get together. Yet Eddie cheated on Brandi. But he “loved” her and didnt want to leave her- Brandi kicked him out.
    To me that says, Leanne can look the same as Brandi but that doesnt mean he wont cheat because he cheated on the original. She can “be” Brandi, bonus mom etc but that doesnt mean he wont cheat because again, he cheated on the original. He wont love her like he loved Brandi because she cant actually BE Brandi.
    Why would she even want to remind Eddie of Brandi by dressing and looking like her? The last thing she should be doing is reminding Eddie of what he lost when Leanne came into his life and he cheated on his loving wife.


  43. Jennifer says:

    Very unattractive (just like her insides). Not natural looking at all.

    Just like everyone is saying, not buying one bit of info this girl and her pr people put out there. How convenient to be entering therapy just when she decides to file a lawsuit. It’s just like Leann to try to blame someone else when Leann was the one doing the calling and making derogatory comments.

  44. choppersann says:

    As a teenager I never ate….never considered myself anorexic and was never diagnosed as such….but I’d often go 2-3 days without eating to stay thin and obtain that ‘heroin chic’ look that was in vogue in the 90s…..I am 5 foot 4 and topped the scales in the eighty five pound range… thing I remember distinctly from this time is never EVER wanting to be seen in a bikini! Part of body dysmorphic disorder is always thinking you look bad, no matter how thin you are…I can believe she is exercise obsessed, which is another disorder in its self (struggled with this one too)….it gave me more confidence and I didn’t mind being ‘seen’as much….but I’m not buying anorexia or bulemia…..

    • heather says:

      Agreed! I too suffered from body dysmorphic disorder in highschool and college. I was a size zero, worked out, didn’t eat, etc etc had the flattest tummy and still was horrified at the thought of me in a bikini around other people. LeAnn flaunts herself so much. Obviously people with EDs/body image issues all think differently but from my personal experience I wouldn’t have been caught dead in a bikini around my friends. In fact I never wanted to wear anything that brought any sort of attention to myself. Its obvious LeAnn has issues with herself but I wish she would drop the lawsuit and disappear from public while she heals. It is insulting to others who are suffering from ED bc we would never want to make a spectacle of our disorder. I personally felt ashamed and was very quiet about it but again that is just me

  45. choppersann says:

    Exactly! I’d come home at dinner time and tell my mom I’d already eaten at a friends….but had jus told my friends mom I couldn’t eat there cos mom was making dinner! Own up to a waitress! ESPECIALLY as a famous person…psssh….no way is this for real!!

  46. SurlyMonkey says:

    I think she absolutely has “food” issues. She admitted that way back when she was a chubby teen and got “healthy” with Dean’s help.

    That said, there is no way in hell that anyone should buy this story. She is now just throwing everything at the wall, desperately trying to get some sympathy to stick.

    She shot her own “cyber bullied” defense in the foot when she began tweeting the second she got a weekend pass. She just could NOT resist her passive-aggressive retweet about “lies”. Then the second she takes to the stage, she starts with the “I can’t tell MY truth” and “My anger comes out in my music.”

    This spoiled brat is hiding out while she tries to change public opinion and use her money and influence to “punish” the people that exposed her “true” self. Like Jezi pointed out above, she has a life long history of being vindictive as sh*t and trying to hide it by playing the victim in her self created dramas.

    And for the record, Ed most certainly has a type. It’s the type of woman that has no morals and/or regards for the responsibilities and promises he made to others (with exception of Brandi, of course). To put it bluntly, Ed’s type is a wh*re of a woman that has no problem knowingly banging a married man.

    Brandi, Scheana, Divini and the new waitress don’t have a lot in common, physically, except that they are all pretty.

    Le was not conventionally pretty. This change is fueled by her obsession with this, not Ed’s. Now, she has transformed herself into something else all together because SHE wanted to “beat” Brandi and all the others and she can’t.

    This has nothing to do with Ed. He doesn’t care. He never has. As with everything LeAnn related, it’s all about HER. This is her drama. He’s just along for the ride on the money train.

      i think she has serious “food issues” as well. but this story is just another way to control and manipulate the media and the public’s opinion of ‘poor leann.’

      yes, i do feel intense sympathy towards those who have to deal with the evil monster that is an eating disorder.

      but i cannot get myself to feel any empathy for leann and the situation that she so clearly has made for herself.

      be the heroine of your life, not the victim.

  48. Sara says:

    She had a normal girl figure before and he used to be married to a model! I almost feel sorry for her. LeAnn just doesn’t have a model figure, no matter how hard she fights nature she’s never going to have it. Give it up already.

  49. lindy loo says:

    In a way, I kinda feel sorry for her.
    She was instrumental in breaking up a marriage. Now I think she feels she needs to become the perfect, sexy woman to keep Eddie interested and to prevent him from cheating on her.
    Sorry LeAnn, a cheater won’t change.

  50. crazycatlady says:

    For Christ’s sake it’s STAR. The rag that tells us one or other celebrity is dead or dying of cancer when they’re perfectly healthy… etc. etc. etc.

    Sure, I believe she’s got a bit of a body image issue and may have been starving herself. But come out of a restaurant bathroom and tell some random waitress she had to barf so she could eat dessert and keep her husband? Please.

  51. teehee says:

    Well she can be a victim of eating disorders but ALSO be a horrible and vindictive person.
    She can be messed up and cause not only others harm, but also herself. She has growing up to do, big time, and yes she needs to learn how to deal with herself and anxieties as well as other people- and stop trying to make an image of herself she can like both in the press and in a bikini.

    I also had an ED- first annorexia and then bulimia while I struggled to overcome ano- I ate, at least, but I had a hard time keeping what I ate. That went on for a few years, and I did look too thin but not deadly thin. I felt like a failure of ano LOL
    Funnily I am infertile now… I have had a hard time figurign out what the cause might be. Part of me really refuses to think it can be caused by something that is so long ago– I think teh body is more resillient than that..?
    Has anyone more information about this– how women have overcome their infertility or other health issues that are a result of previous ED?
    Any info would be appreciated!

  52. kdog says:

    You know, I’m bulimic and have been for roughly 6 years. I am only 18. I’m just putting my two cents in- she looks alright. Yes, she has gone down in size over the years, but her skin looks fairly healthy and normally no matter what shape you are in, when you have an eating disorder it shows in the skin. But hey, I could be wrong, I just have not met one pereson with an eating disorder with flawless, bronze, flushed skin like Leanne. Then again, it could be pounds of makeup!
    Hope she is okay.. nobody deserves that.. :-(

  53. sapphire says:

    Several posters have mentioned the peculiar lack of coverage of Eddie’s whereabouts. Also that there’s no identification of the faCility or pap photos of her entering and leaving. Since at least one pap is at her beck and call, the silence is overwhelming.

    Also, who ever heard about a month long marathon of attention seeking, partying, photo ops etc when you have such “stress” that you require treatment? The PR fail started the month before.

  54. Queen Bee says:

    “They don’t find a woman who isn’t really their type and try to body-shame her into having an eating disorder so she can “become” his type.”

    Sane, well-adjusted guys don’t do this, agreed, but the controlling abusive ones often do.

  55. Theskinny says:

    Yep. Looking like any other fat old man, but with a good hair cut. She aged him. lol

  56. claire says:

    I don’t even remotely believe that she is in a real rehab facility. I think her and Eddie are chilling at some spa retreat, and that’s why you don’t see any pap photos. TMZ researched it and said she’s not in a real rehab facility. She’s got a show tonight in Maine but her and Eddie were spotted sight seeing there yesterday, so she spent, what?, only 4 of the 5 days at the “facility” this past week? Riiight…rehab my ass. This is all a complete farce, and another one of her manipulations in my opinion. Though I still find it hilarious that when she announced her faux rehab story, tons of her own fans came out and said “finally!”

  57. Krock says:

    Ok even if Eddie has a “type” or whatever, she is still his wife! He should be the one who is concerned and urging her to get help. But I dont get that vibe from him. Hes just along for the ride and really doesn’t give a rats ass about her or her well being. JMO.

  58. Chipmunk says:

    If she continues with this lawsuit, her career is over. She might as well pack up and move to Timbuktu, no one will touch her with a ten foot pole. As for her “rehab” I think it’s drugs.

      I just watched episode 2 of The Voice and her tour bus coordinator (i think?) was on the show. He obviously is starstruck by her and she said he should be on the show after hearing him sing karaoke, and he was bad.

      i mean, good tone, mellow voice, but SO inconsistent, so pitchy, so weak-voiced…. poor guy. I felt bad for him.

    I see them drinking a lot in pics, why is this? If their relationship depends a lot on drinking and staying high with alcohol, then I don’t think it will be a lasting one. We’re already seeing cracks with her eating disorder, so it can’t be all that happy with them.

    What a miserable existence. *skips up to read all the comments, drink in hand*

  63. Krock says:

    lol ditto that! *clink* Now let me get back to judging the shit out of her hehe

    Any man who thinks of women in terms of a dress size is a douche.

    I was once IM’ed by a guy who wanted to meet me provided I was no bigger than a size 14. Actually I’m a size 4 or 6, but I told him he could stick his size preferences where the sun don’t shine. I never saw his pic either, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he looked like a washtub.

    ‘“I heard her throw up,” says the waitress. “She came out and cried, explaining she had to do it – otherwise she couldn’t eat dessert with Eddie and still stay skinny.”’ Okay, I doubt that that’s true. Bulimics hide their habits, and why would a celebrity cry all over some anonymous waitress about her marriage?

  66. Sugar says:

    I’m thinking “rehab” is really a guise for “trial separation”, she has to save face where her marriage is concerned. So whatever went down between her & Eddie for her to do this right after her birthmonth celebration has to be big. Plus she had to fulfill her concert obligations, her cancellatin rate has been embarrassing & her record label probably put some heat on her especially with this new CD coming out which the date has been all over the place. Then to top it off the taped phone conversation hits.
    she will not let Eddie go that’s a given. so maybe he gave her the I need space line & in her efforts to be the put upon one she cooked up the rehab story. I don’t recall Eddie going with her on any other weekend passes but maybe he was free to go this weekend & its part of whatever deal she brokered with him so it doesn’t look like a trial separation.

    Don’t men who’s ‘type’ is extremely skinny women actually just want boys?
    Just sayin’….

    LR is such an irrelevant manipulative nobody trying soooo hard to make people think she is sooo important and her marriage is soooo happy! What a farce! The more she tries–the less we believe!

  70. Jennifer12 says:

    The only thing Leann wants is to manipulate people. She is bound and determined to make people see things her way, no matter how skewed and off that way is and no matter how wrong she is and how people see right through her. She is selling herself as a person in need of sympathy right now, even though whatever rehab she claims to be in lets her OUT on weekends and allows her to tweet. I just can’t with this lizard woman. She is the most cold blooded, cruel, manipulative thing I have ever seen and wish she would crawl under a rock and stay there. And I’m dying to know how Eddie likes the REAL her, because this IS her: vicious, vindictive, hateful and manipulative.

  71. nomorerimes says:

    Supposedly EC went to Maine with her?? Gosh, he had to stay in the same hotel room with her!??!! To use a really good quote–”Ewwwwwwww!”

  72. juju says:

    who freaken cares really ???this chick does anything to keep in the press !!when u take somebodies husband it comes back to kick u in the ass in all sort of ways !! what comes around goes around !! she’ll never be happy with Eddie !!

    here’s the link to that article:

    “thousands of fans enjoy leann”

    if you clink on the pictures on the right hand side they get bigger and you can see that something about leann looks different.

  74. claire says:

    There’s a fan pic of of her on Twitter right now from yesterday that is just…ugh. I don’t even know what to say, really. It’s horrifying what she has done to her face. If any of her fans can’t put 2 + 2 together about all those “dental” emergencies and other suspicious illnesses, and the face that she has now that is soooo different than even last year’s,…and not come to the obvious conclusion, they’re just blind and dumb, IMO. It’s sad actually, that whatever her mental issues are, even if she overcomes them, she’ll be left with this PS nightmare.

  75. Jay Elle says:

    She doesn’t look like she has an eating disorder at all. She has muscles in her legs… that’s one of the first things to go. If she had an ED her muscles would waste away, and they’re fine here. I think she’s just athletic.

  76. brin says:

    Seeing pictures of Channing & Jenna Tatum promoting their movie reminded me that it was a year ago that The Playboy Club premiered (promo parties and fashion week)…now look where Leann is.

  77. Rodney says:

    I really see a healthy lookin girl in the above pics. I don’t believe she would let a waitress know she threw up peas to eat dessert with Eddie.I think she has alot of emotional turmoil goin on with the break-up of her marraige for
    another man. I have never seen such vulgar things said about anyone as much as LeAnn. It is the Big Ed’s fault too. I would never ever put up with any of his cheatin(if this is really happenin) LeAnn you got way too much talent than to let a man control you, DONOT let Ed get away with any of this, he should be the one changing not you-anyways, his looks will fade, his body will give in to mother nature-he will be left a lonely soul.

  78. Tannita says:

    Isn’t Leann extremely quiet? Wonder what is going on…
