Dean Sheremet calls out LeAnn Rimes for laughing when someone called him ‘gay’


LeAnn Rimes got into a Twitter drama with an ex. Shockingly, it was LeAnn’s ex and not Eddie Cibrian’s. For the most part, Dean Sheremet and LeAnn don’t seem to speak or acknowledge each other in any way. I believe that when they divorced, LeAnn gave Dean a nice settlement and he took it and moved to NYC, where he probably invested in some real estate and went to culinary school. He’s now remarried and he seems to have been able to “move on” from the drama with a lot of grace. Last month he did give an interview where he talked about LeAnn, and it was notable just because he hadn’t mentioned her in public in a long time. Anyway, the new drama happened because (why else?) LeAnn will not and cannot stay off of Twitter. I don’t want to get too far into the weeds here, so here’s what went down:

LeAnn Rimes continues to have Twitter-related drama. The 31-year-old country star irritated her ex-husband, dancer Dean Sheremet, after replying with laughs, to a snarky comment that implicated he was gay.

It all began Saturday when a Twitter handle labeled Da Giggle Factory posted a picture of the “You’ve Ruined Me” singer from her first marriage, with the caption, “Remember the good old days when @leannrimes was just a chubby country bumpkin married to a gay dude?”

Rimes, who famously went to rehab last year in order to curb her urges for the interactive website, wrote back: “hahahaha I’m gonna choose to laugh at this” — which rubbed Sheremet the wrong way, as he wrote back to his ex-wife, “Laugh away-Who’s the bully now?”

Sheremet then wrote a message addressed to both Rimes and the NOH8 Campaign, as he said, “I don’t do twitter wars, but I do hate ignorance.”

Rimes, doing damage control, clarified she was “laughing” at herself, and said Sheremet’s “not gay and there’s nothing wrong” if he was.

“I have always & will always support the [gay] community,” she wrote.

Like Brandi Glanville, Sheremet was publicly cuckolded after his wife’s 2009 affair with Eddie Cibrian came to light after the two filmed the TV movie Northern Lights. Sheremet subsequently found love with photographer Sarah Silver, and the two have been married since 2011.

So, does Dean still “follow” LeAnn on Twitter or did someone just tell him about her tweets? As for what actually went down… yes, LeAnn was trying to show how “happy” she is and how “she doesn’t listen” to all of the criticism, and that’s why she responded the way she did. Of course. I like that Dean stood up for himself and that he called her out on her BS.

Incidentally, I read this Celebrity Dirty Laundry story a few days ago and it’s worth a read if you’re a tin-foil-hat-wearing LeAnn conspiracist. CDL basically says that LeAnn spends most of her time on Twitter responding to herself through various Twitter handles. I kind of believe it.

    Aww, she looks really pretty in those photos with her ex

    • Aussie girl says:

      Yes she does look happy with dean and without her bolt ons. I don’t blame dean for calling out her BS. Even though she didn’t directly come out and say his gay, I think he has had a enough, the same as everyone else. Leanne’s house of cards are crashing down

    • hadleyb says:

      I was just gonna say she actually looked good back then. What happened? I mean she got thinner for awhile but looked awful in the face.

      Drugs ? Booze? Adderall I hear ages people so maybe it was a combo of al of it that did her face in .

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        It is really striking huh?

        I mean..I try to refrain from repeating what we all know is true about Meanne’s current appearance, but I actually didn’t realize how attractive she used to be.

      • Jayna says:

        @TheOriginalKitten, I’ve always said LeAnn was a very cute girl from 19 to meeting Eddie, when her obsession with looking like a California hot babe ruined her looks with everything she did to her face and body and mouth. LeAnn was cute girl, with a cute figure, and had a cute southern personality, came across well in interviews, talented, successful. LeAnn could have left Dean and had plenty of good-looking guys in Nashville think she was adorable. She wasn’t some desperate, homely chubby girl that couldn’t get a guy except with her money like people paint on here. And even Eddie, who was out of LeAnn’s league in many ways, Brandi said on Howard Stern she didn’t think he was with LeAnn in the beginning because of her money. But she thinks he is staying in the relationship now because of her money for sure, no job, suger momma.

        Now she had never had a super hot guy like Eddie was in his prime with a hot Barbi wife and thus began the unraveling of LeAnn, snagging this prize she couldn’t believe she got.

        I always post this interview of LeAnn when she was in her early twenties. She was more mature then. It’s shocking the difference in not just her looks but her maturity and groundedness and soft personality. LOL “There’s a better way to use your fame.” She needs to look at her words then. She had cute facial expressios. Now her face is all botoxed and filled with fillers and doesn’t move.

      • Ok says:

        In response to Jayna ( and I can’t reply directly because there is no reply right on your comment)

        Nice post.

        I suspect that when Eddie is out of the picture, a lot of things will level out for Leann with her behavior.

        I think the personalities just don’t mesh well.
        Some things are just not meant to be

      • Christin says:

        The change is significant. And as @Jayna mentions, it’s not only physical looks. The demeanor seems to have changed, too. Maybe this is the real her, independent of listening to any capable handlers (and I do think Dean somehow helped ground her after the Keegan and daddy messes).

      • Bridget says:

        @jayna – the interesing thing is that stuff’s coming out about what a cheater she was when she was with Dean, and she’s always had a side of her personality that she’s for the most part kept hidden publicly (great example: see her court battle with her dad when she was a teenager). As much as the relationship with Eddie has turned into a perfect storm, it’s likely that the only thing that’ll change in the future is that she’ll once again learn to hide her crazy.

    • kudzuqueen says:

      I know. She is actually adorable in the older photos. I wish she would take those implants out. Her body was so cute before.

    • Isabelle says:

      Looks like she had chin surgery, her jaw is more square?

      • Miffy says:

        I can’t work it out. Maybe she’s just not ageing well? The change is drastically noticeable but it’s not obviously surgery.

  2. ANDREA1 says:

    Good one Dean for standing up for yourself. She just made herself look stupid

  3. wiffie says:

    I totally believe she tweets herself. She’s bsc.

  4. David99 says:

    She is an awful person. Good for him.

  5. MoxyLady007 says:

    She actually was wearing flattering clothes in the pics with dean. I think that’s why everyone thought he was gay initially- she used to dress well for her body type and look somewhat cute. They broke up and she has looked like ass ever since.

    But as we have said here time and again, he obviously isn’t gay. This must just be a case of instant karma.

    • emmie_a says:

      I thought LeAnn started the gay rumors to explain her cheating on him? Just shows how evil she is.

      • jaye says:

        There were gay rumors about him before the cheating scandal.

      • Cindy says:

        She did, and Darrell and another producer kept them alive on twitter. Back then there was plenty of evidence of all of her alts putting out the rumors on twitter and the blogs. People called her on it. It was one of the first times fans got to see her nasty personality.

      • Jayna says:

        There were always gay rumors while she was married to him. I regret to say I am one of those that thought he was gay. He was a dancer and he when he was young had a pretty boy face. I never heard him talk, so it was just based on photos. Seeing him in interviews I get no gay vibe at all. He’s good looking and is definitely a guy’s guy.

  6. brin says:

    She can’t resist responding to tweets with her snarky comments and she gets called out for it….good for Dean!
    I also think she has multiple fake accounts and people have ss of her forgetting and answering on her own account (can’t keep up with her lies).

  7. Vee says:

    Keeping it classy Dean. Good on you!

  8. Devon says:

    If Dean was mentioned, it would show up in his twitter client. So, regardless or not if he follows Rimes (I suspect he doesn’t) he would still be notified.

  9. Cherry says:

    I don’t see what the problem is. She shouldn’t have responded at all to that ‘gay’-joke of course, but if you’re going to do it, ‘I’m gonna choose to laugh at this’ is probably the way to go. The joke is offensive to her as well to her ex, so by laughing about it she just shows how the whole thing’s not worth a serious reply. I don’t understand how the ex interprets that as ‘bullying’.

    • emmie_a says:

      How is it ok for her to laugh at a lie that she started about Dean?? She had a chance to say something (the truth) about Dean’s sexuality but she chose to laugh. ha.ha. so funny.

      • Tammy White says:

        She could have been laughing at the chubby country bumpkin & not Dean at all. She actually responded quite well to Dean’s tweet, so I believe this is much ado about nothing.

    • Patricia says:

      I have to agree with Cherry. Laughing at something unkind and untrue is a way of giving it no influence and disregarding it. I might have done the same thing, instead of engaging the unkindness just disregard it and laugh it off. I think it is Leanne’s general character that makes this seem wrong to some people. If it was someone else people might understand that she simply did not want to engage and was trying to just brush this comment off instead of engaging by defending.

      • emmie_a says:

        Laughing (via twitter) is not disregarding, it’s actually engaging. If you really wanted to disregard something you would just ignore it. Not responding, staying silent would be more powerful than laughing in this situation.

      • Asiyah says:

        Disregarding it would be to simply ignore it completely instead of “laughing” about it online. Right?

      • Florc says:

        Leanne can’t chew her food without telling twitter about it. Laughing at this and telling people so IS her disregarding it.
        This seems overblown. I didn’t read her comment as laughing at her ex. And I think most of what she does is out of insecurity and malice.

        And she looked fabulous during her first marriage! she’s destroyed now.

    • Jacqueline says:

      The way to go is to do the right thing & say it was unkind and unnecessary to speak of Dean that way and NOT ENGAGE. That is it DO NOT ENGAGE. But the dumb bitch can’t help herself.

    • Erinn says:

      The thing is she’s supposed to be this big “NOH8” advocate. She supposedly is supposed to be anti-bullying (though we all know she’s just as bad of a bully as any). He took issue with the fact that she can babble on about NOH8 and not bullying, and then allow someone to make a remark that is using gay as a slur, and do nothing. The whole anti-bullying thing really focuses on not being a by-stander. By her response, she sat back and did nothing to discourage the gay comment, especially when it was used in a negative way. She’s incredibly insincere with her ’causes’.

      • Amber says:

        Exactly, 1) If she wanted to let it slide off her back, she should not have responded AT ALL. But it’s all about her so… 2) If she just had to respond, there are plenty of ways she could’ve put that person in their place and made a lesson of them (NOH8). Especially when someone mentions homosexuality in a derogatory manner. That’s not funny. She as an “advocate” shouldn’t be going “what’evs” to that. 3) It’s not only about her! I believe, or I hope, her reaction was. But that just shows how oblivious and narcissistic she is. That goes back to #2. It is not her place to laugh that off on Dean’s behalf. 4) I’m glad he was more upset about the bullying. (It was quite the perfect calling out, wasn’t it?) But I wouldn’t be bothered at all if he was also pissed that she didn’t deny or defend him. Her response to Dean’s response should’ve been part of her original response (lol). You have to put yourself in Dean’s position and remember all he’s been through (mainly at her and PR team’s hands) and the million times he’s had to deal with bull like this.

    • Stacey says:

      If one of my exes joked with people that I’m a lesbian, I would be pissed. Obviously the joke was derogatory and hateful. Have some respect for your ex Leann, especially after what you did. she had to have known by responding to that tweet she would be broadcasting the gay joke to the public. She hides behind this passive aggressive veneer so she can back track and pretend she isnt being a jerk.

      Ridiculing anyone for their sexual orientation is so immature. For being a so called bullying advocate, she should know better than to joke about someone’s sexual orientation and to laugh at derogatory hateful jokes about her ex that clearly offend him. The fact he found it offensive should tell her she needs to check herself. I don’t give her a pass on this at all. Shame on her. She is 31 years old and should know better.

  10. Erinn says:

    Dean is such a fantastic human being. I can’t even begin to imagine how he felt during the multiple affairs, the divorce, the crazy, and the continuing twitter wars Leann partakes in. He has a hell of a lot more class than I could have ever mustered.

    Leann needs to shut down her twitter. But if she does that, she’s even less relevant. She needs to stop with the drunk tweeting, the manic arguments. For God sakes, she personally attacked a woman because she had BB in her handle; the poor lady had no idea about Brandi’s fans, or anything like that – she just loved Big Brother.

    She does a lot of tweet-and-delete too, so by the time the gossip blogs pick things up, she’s taken them down, and they need a screenshot to showcase the crazy. Between that and her multiple twitter handles, the woman is an obsessed stalker.

  11. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    In a half-hearted defense of LeAnn (shudder), I think she is just so self-centered that she only saw the part about her being a chubby bumpkin. I believe her when she says she was responding to that remark, not the gay remark. I am, however, putting on my tin hat and venturing over to the linked article after I finish this.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      ITA…even though it kills me.

      She sucks at so many things, but I think this particular instance is not one of them.

    • Asiyah says:

      I actually agree with this, but she still needs to be called out. It’s not all about you, LeAnn. You weren’t the only one offended. She’s so against bullying only when she’s the “victim.”

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      ITA, GoodNames.

      LeAnn only saw herself in the offensive tweet and wasn’t thinking of Dean at all when she responded to it. Even though it does showcase for the world her single minded focus on herself being the butt of the tweet, she’s admitting how oblivious she was to Dean’s feelings. LeAnn’s telling the truth here, and honestly copping to her insensitivity.

  12. Anna says:

    It would show up in his mentions that someone put his twitter in a tweet, so I highly doubt he ws looking at LeAnn’s tweets when this happened.

    Good for him for saying something.

  13. ojulia123 says:

    Have you seen on Twitter how she has followers with names like Number1LeannRimesFan or LeAnnRimesFan4Lyfe?


    Those have to be fake, right?

  14. Jessiebes says:

    Dean did an interview with US mag. He says he is not offended by being called gay, but rather that the word gay was used as a slur-word.

  15. Kiddo says:

    This must be backward universe today, but I don’t think she handled the second explanation badly. She should have said it first. But they did call her a country bumpkin, and I’m guessing that wasn’t a compliment. Her ex should have ignored the whole thing, or said something similar that he’s not gay, but it’s not an insult, whatever.

    In the end, who really cares?

  16. Dani2 says:

    Was really proud of him for calling her out on that, good on him.

  17. NerdMomma says:

    For once I think people are making something out of nothing. Usually Rimes does post horrid things on twitter, but her response was pretty innocent. She’s self-centered, so she’s not going to think about Dean’s feelings. With that understood, she’s going to laugh off being called a chubby country bumpkin. Dean didn’t need to say anything- that was actually NOT classy- and Rimes, for once, did not do anything wrong.

    • glaugh says:

      I agree totally. This story is really reaching…

      • matia says:

        I think she should have not responded at all. Dean has been called gay in a derogatory way for years and some say leann gave validity to those rumors to her favorite minions on twitter. Its probably a sore subject for him and for her to think its funny it must have upset him

    • yeahright says:

      I see this the same way.

    • Emily C. says:


      There is absolutely nothing she could have done there that would not have been criticized. Do people want her to have gone on a big long rant, made a speech, what? How would that have helped anything? There are so many things about this woman to criticize. This is not one of them. Frankly the LeAnn Rimes hate is starting to look nuttier than LeAnn Rimes herself.

    • TherapyCranes says:


  18. eliza says:

    Adults need to stop living their lives through Twitter. Who gives two shizz’s what a bunch of developmentally arrested people Tweet about? The fact that they are on Twitter at all speaks volumes about their character to begin with.

    I am not throwing shade at Dean at all. My comment is directed at LeAnn and people like her who obsess and stress over the number of followers, what is said and the time spent being an immature douche bag on a site that needs to die a quick death. Twitter sucks and I know people love it but I don’t. People need to grow up and be adults and stop being 8th graders.

    • Evelyn says:

      AMEN. I don’t get the twitter fascination, why would you give verbal diarrhea a platform?

    • doofus says:

      agree about Twitter. how many times has a celeb posted something that caused a LOT of controversy only to delete it from their feed (but not before someone gets a screen shot, of course…)?

      you’d think they’d learn the “rule” about ranting in email/twitter/facebook…”write it out, but don’t post/send it until you’ve waited 24 hours and re-read it before it actually goes out”

  19. Jojo says:

    God knows I cant stand Leann but I cant be the only one thinking Dean overeacted here. That tweet she was responding to was intended as a dig at her not him. And her response was a derisive laugh, indicating how dumb she thought the tweet was. Leann is an ass but comeon guys, Dean is seriously overreacted. (which in of itself may mean something. Or maybe not)

    • Tammy White says:

      I agree..overreaction by Dean.

    • Patricia says:

      I agree also but yet I can’t blame him. Every person has a breaking point and he was probably like “I can’t take one more mention of being gay associated with that little brat!”

    • Delta Juliet says:

      Glad I’m not the only one who read this and didn’t see the big deal in her response. I don’t like her one bit, but this just seems to reach for drama. And Dean seems a little to defensive to be honest. If she should have ignored it, so should he.

      • claire says:

        But she didn’t ignore it. She brought attention to it and tweeted back making all who follow her see it. Maybe if she wasn’t just using all those anti-hate campaigns for her PR but actually lived their missions, or maybe if she thought about that two people were insulted in that tweet, not just her, she would actually be an advocate and speak out against things.
        Dean has a right to think she’s a joke and a hypocrite. Then instead of apologizing to him she giggles with her fans that he’s just a drama-starter. Her fans talk shit about him all the time and she never defends him. I’m sure Dean is sick of her crap and got tired of keeping quiet about it.

    • Jessibes says:

      I disagree. Dean didn’t overreact. A couple of posters above explain it better than I can. Please read.

  20. Meggie says:

    Not to point out the obvious, but she was slimmer with Dean than she is in her current form. Her implants make her look bulkier, too.

    Dean brought out her pretty, Squinty brings out her hag.

  21. MonicaQ says:

    I knew the smell of burning rubber this morning was due to LeAnn backpedaling and not the tire fire down the street.

  22. Christin says:

    Her overall Twitter usage should be an example of what not to do within celebrity social media. Most celebrities utilize social media to promote their projects with a tweet here and there, not basically live on it 24/7.

  23. Shelley says:

    LeAnn and Eddie use ‘we laugh at it’ as their template response to everything they’re asked to respond to. Gets tiresome. She wasn’t chubby and Dean isn’t gay. Neither comment is funny in any way. How about a statement that body-shaming and using the word ‘gay’ in a manner intended to be deragatory are both wrong? Saying you’re laughing at it just makes you seem like an ignorant hyena. If you’re going to address this – and I agree, she should not have done so – then take a strong stance.

  24. Christin says:

    His reaction may have been fueled by his seven-year sentence plus the aftermath. He knows how she operates. If she is as prone to passive-aggressive, mean girl behavior as some claim, he might have believed that omission is implied agreement.

    She could have added something to her original reply to clarify she was laughing at herself, even if she didn’t wish to jump to his defense. Or better yet, step away from it completely and not engage.

    • briargal says:

      I agree with you. Dean knows LR and how she thinks better than anyone other than her parents and probably even better than them. He knows all the flack she has thrown his way via her minions and snide remarks. Good for him standing up to this selfish, self-centered, manipulating liar.

      Wish Kaiser had put a recent pic of Dean in the article. He was good looking before but he has improved with age! Wow! Just the opposite of LR! haha

    • Asiyah says:

      Exactly. He knows who he’s dealing with and how she operates.

    • Cindy says:

      ITA, this is a case of a long time history of Leann’s crazy lies and mean manipulation, and her ex husband of many years called her on it. He has seen her do this many times before and doesn’t have to deal with her garbage any more.
      Why did Leann RETWEET this comment if she didn’t want to make a point? She gets lots of negative comments all day and never retweets those. Why did Leann chose to retweet the pics and shout out to the men who wore the F*ck Brandi T-shirts to her show? Many people wear message t-shirts to her shows and she never retweets the photos.
      So much for Leann being a NOHA advocate, this is a woman who uses her star power and paparazzi and twitter fame to hate on anyone who disagrees with her.
      I believe that the reason Dean is standing up for himself and the gay community is also the fact that he knows the depths to which she would sink to get what she wants. This is a woman who will use anyone or any cause to please her own desires, like allegedly terminating Dean’s baby without telling him, after trying to pass it off as Eddie’s and failing.

  25. Annie says:

    I don’t like LeAnn at all but it does seem like she was laughing at her ugly picture, not implying her ex is gay. She pretty much said she’s choosing to laugh at her admittedly ugly picture instead of making drama, for a change.

    • briargal says:

      Yeah–she did do some back pedaling, didn’t she??!!

    • Stacey says:

      Oh please, she knew exactly what she was doing. I absolutely think she was laughing at the gay dean joke too. She is far too old to get free passes on this type of behavior. There is no excuse for that kind of stupidity.

  26. Dean has certainly never been one to over react in public before. I doubt if he was scolding her for just this particular response from her. His reaction probably came from finally being sick and tired of her reaction to this same message over the last several years. She is the one and only that knows if he is gay or not and she had never done one thing to dispel all the ugly rumors that mostly her fans continue to speak of. She could have nipped this rumor in the bud years ago if she wasn’t trying to justify her own behavior with allowing people to believe that could be true. Dean is a stand up guy regardless of her antics over all the years he has known her.

    • Jayna says:

      Yeah. I think he overreacted, because LeAnn was disparaged in the tweet and I think her choosing to laugh it off was saying it’s absurd, but I don’t think she thought about how Dean would feel regarding the tweet about him and his feelings. And I agree he reacted probably because he had had enough.

      I think LeAnn back when didn’t nip it in the bud because like you said, she used it to justify her behavior.

    • lunchcoma says:

      That’s my interpretation as well. He’s been really patient with both her and the rumors for years now. I also think that reacting now might be in part because he’s married, and that might make him inclined to defend his relationship rather than just himself. Either way, this is a pretty tame response to all the provocation and I’m completely on his side.

  27. Megan says:

    Dean is the only one of the four of them who I truly believe is worth a damn. The other three make me nauseous

    • Shelley says:


    • Jayna says:

      Team Dean all the way. And, thank God, he was smart enough to bail on that Brandi interview on her podcast. She talked him back into it and then he thought about it and bailed again. He doesn’t need to be associated with this mess of a group that is ongoing. He addressed it in the one interview recently in a very classy way, that that was enough. He’s trying to further his career, and being on Brandi’s show does nothing to help him distance himself from the ongoing circus of the other three.

      • claire says:

        It would have been nice to hear him talk about his new career and new life. Unfortunately, Leann’s fans and friends were harassing him nonstop for agreeing. I imagine it was that and the attention for calling her out that made him rethink it.

  28. Kim1 says:

    If I was called a chubby country bumpkin I would laugh it off .

  29. Rita says:

    Let’s talk about Dean. He was rumored to be gay years ago but he did not feel the need to jump to his feet and scream, “I am not gay!!!” This is a man confident in who he is.

    Let’s talk about LeAnn. When she made her affair with Eddie public, LeAnn and her camp put out all sorts of “Dean’s Gay” crap to give LeAnn cover. Not once did LeAnn ever simply state, “No, Dean is not gay”, and quietly leave it at that.

    Where as Dean never took offense at being considered gay and didn’t feel the need to respond, LeAnn used the “accusation” for her own purposes. This situation was the first time she admitted that Dean is not gay but only after Dean called out LeAnn for leaving an untruth dangle in the public wind.

    Team Classy, aka Team Dean.

    PS- According to JSJ, there is a huge story about to break about LeAnn and it stinks so bad not even Jenn wants to touch it……waiting with the crickets.

    • Juliette says:

      I know the story you’re talking about and if true, LR is far more evil and diabolical than we thought. If it’s true, then it is no wonder Dean is so bitter and angry at her. Keeping a secret like that and then having him find in the finances during the dissolution of their marriage, terrible and so sad for Dean.

      • Rita says:

        We are both thinking the same thing (great minds do that) but I doubt it’s the blind item. JSJ said she wasn’t going to touch the story and she’s going to reveal the blind. I still have doubts about all the “supposed” darkness around LeAnn and Eddie. Nobody could live like that and there’s a special place in hell for someone who’d keep children in the middle of it. Time will tell.

      • Jayna says:

        Dean didn’t come off bitter or angry at LeAnn in his interview with Billy Bush and he said some nice things about her. Time has a way of being able to do that. But he was honest about being blindsided by the affair and the hurt it caused him, but he didn’t whine.

        I think Dean has wounds but he doesn’t hate LeAnn. He even said he has nothing but love for her, his words, and wishes her the best. He’s moved on and has a great career, a great wife, a great life.

        @Rita, I’ve wondered … the blind item Jenn posted most recently that seems to be about LR … she said “this will be revealed,” but she didn’t say she herself would reveal it. Then she said there was something terrible coming out about LR that she, Jenn, wouldn’t touch … the way she worded it, it seems like they could be the same thing? Like maybe Star (or something) would reveal it and Jenn wouldn’t touch it except as an “anonymous” blind? That blind is pretty sickening. I can’t think of a *worse* story for someone’s public image — even if you leave her medical history out of it, and it should be, the manipulation and coldness there is pretty awful. And Jenn is smart with her wording. I dunno, just a theory!

    • Cindy says:

      Yes, I believe Leann is on Twitter and many gossip blogs as her alts and harassing everyone who is calling her out on her psycho behavior. The leaks from Eddie’s camp are all over the tabloids and many bloggers are speculating about her. So she is doing her own form of damage control by lashing out at everyone and anyone in her life. Dean is just one of many of her targets. I’m sure her split personality is fighting somewhere online right now with: Dean’s sister, Carly Rose and her supporters, Brandi, Brandi’s dentist, Eddie, Eddie’s family, Scheana, the Smiley family, Jessica Simpson, Carrie Underwood, Leann’s old record company, her manager, her dad and his wife.

    • Eileen says:

      Leann is famous for making passive replies to aggressive tweets that continue her agenda.
      She knew exactly what she was doing. She brings things to the table, with a wink or a haha…and they are tweets she herself wants to say but can’t. Those rumors about Dean being gay have been going on their entire marriage and when she cheated, she used them to further her agenda of justification. Now she’s hurting, her marriage is in the dumpster and she wants to lash out at others.
      Rita-I know what the story is and it IS ugly. I hope a gossip site will have the balls to report it. Stories take weeks if not months to get published because of legal clearance and agreements negotiated with the secret spiller. That’s why bloggers get scoops so much earlier. They ALL talk to each other and bloggers have much more lee-way and less to lose since they can just put an “allegedly” on a story and call it meaningless gossip. Mags make serious $$$$ to report and will be held liable.

        Is it about child abuse?

      • MichBB says:

        Are you talking about this blind from JustSayJenn:
        This once B-list entertainer who flirted with the A-list a little bit, but always had the A-list name recognition, had a torrid affair with this C-list mostly television actor that made all the headlines way back when. They were both married to non famous people at the time of their affair.

        The entertainer was running around a lot on her husband during this time period and discovered she was pregnant. She was happy because she thought it would be a great way to snag the actor and make him leave his wife and kids. A little love child to make things right, and have him on the hook for 18 years.

        Only the actor was very, very clear that he was not about to have more children when the entertainer brought up the ‘what if’. He’s not able to have kids, does not want more kids, and if he wanted to live the family man life, he would stay right where he was.

        She quickly terminated the pregnancy and pretended it didn’t happen. Her husband found out two months after she left him when they were going through the financials in their split, and the bill for the procedure came up. He was devastated. He believes to this day it was his baby.

        This will be revealed.

      • Rita says:

        So nice to hear from you Eileen, people on here have asked about you. Can’t wait for Jenn to reveal the blind but I’m very leery of what’s being put out about L&E. If only half of it is true, that marriage will go down in the anals of celebrity spousal f_ckery……(one “n” or two? No, in this case it’s definitely one “n”.)

      • littlestar says:

        Hey Eileen, good to see you on here. I read the newest blind yesterday and don’t think it’s the story she won’t touch with a 10 foot pole. Is this allegedly awful story going to be revealed at any point, if not by Jenn, then by someone else? Just reading all that stuff yesterday made me feel really sick, like this is spiralling out of control and I’m worried someone is going to hurt someone…

        Anyway, Leann looked really pretty back in the day when she was still with Dean. What a shame, the things she has done to her body, her career, and the people she supposedly loves.

  30. bettyrose says:

    In no way is she “chubby” in that top photo.

    • claire says:

      The photo that went along with the insulting tweet was of a chubby teen Leann. It wasn’t one of the above ones.

  31. Emily C. says:

    I can’t believe the word “cuckolded” is still being used seriously in 2013.

  32. Jen says:

    When are all the people who write paragraphs and spend hours thinking about Leann and all her drama going to realize they’re just as crazy as she is?

    • Deanne says:

      The comments on Celebitchy aren’t of the crazy, obsessed variety. at all. It doesn’t take long to throw together a short paragraph about LeAnn, who lives her entire life on social media and who makes one PR gaff after another. If you want to see crazy, head on over to the Just Jared comments. They are another story altogether.

    • Jessibes says:

      The Leann fans who click on every Leann post on every gossip site, just to contradict, argue or troll are of course perfectly sane.

  33. Jennifer says:

    The first two pics remind me of a time when I thought Leann was a normal, decent, and sane good singer. What a shame as she ruined it all by herself.

  34. SuSu says:

    wow she was so pretty and her eyes looked so happy and normal… now she has crazy eyes. It´s a shame

  35. dtx says:

    I’m no LR fan (at all!) but I do think he was overreacting. However, I will give him pass IF, and ONLY IF, that awful, gut-wrenching blind on JSJ is about him & LR. It’s soooo sad & the fact that its popping up on blinds with a note that “this WILL be revealed!” may be opening up a very deep wound for him.

    Yeah..he gets a pass from me!

    • Jeanette says:

      I agree with you! He made it a big deal by accusing her of letting it slide that they said he was gay, but she also let it slide they called her a country bumpkin. First time I can ever recollect her shutting her trap and just letting crap go, judging by CDL posts this is the least of her worries…I also saw that blind and couple others about her that were actually revealed. She is a sick chick if any of that proves to be true..

    • judyjudy says:

      I think gossip about things such as pregnancy termination should be off limits. It’s hurtful to all involved and I way too sad and dark. I don’t care who it involves, a girl should be able to make that type of decision privately and should not be raked over the coals for it.

      • Jayna says:

        I agree. I refuse to go there and don’t think that’s the explosive info anyway. But even if it was, that’s disgusting to release it.

      • dtx says:

        I agree. I do think that’s going too far. I only mentioned it (without details) because I think he may have heard it coming down the piepline and this may be a deep wound for him and may be the reason for his overreaction to her harmless response tweet. It may also explain why he cancelled his pocast with BG.

      • DebraSam says:

        Judyjudy, I agree wholeheartedly.

  36. dorothy says:

    Why does he really care what that nut thinks? He’s lived with her, he knows what a flake she is.

  37. Jayna says:

    Can I just post Dean’s interview again. I just love this guy. I’ve become such a fangirl of his.

    • Zooyork says:

      Moi aussi 🙂 I have always thought Dean was cute even when the gay rumors were going around, and I never believed those rumors. Now that we get to see more of his classy and genuine personality I *love* him even more!
      Leann was so stupid for letting him go. It’s amazing how downhill she went when he was no longer in her life.

  38. Ming says:

    Team Dean! Enough said.

  39. Snappyfish says:

    I never really heard of her before all the Eddie/Brandi/Leann nonsense but pictures speak a thousand words & she looks happier & prettier with the first husband.

  40. Mika302 says:

    It sounded like she was being sarcastic…I think some people forgot what that is. Also the ex I still think is gay and he shouldn’t hv taken it out on her, but on who wrote it! Her tweet sounded like is has no malice against Dean n it. Some people make things out of nothing!! Geez

    • Krissy says:


    • joanne says:

      it is not up to you to decide who is gay. it’s Dean’s business and no one else’s. he says no, so that should be the final word. being called gay should not be an insult. how about we all take a vote about your sexuality and decide if you’re gay or straight?

    • Sal says:

      You say you think he is gay, but then talk about him making something out of nothing – aren’t you doing the same by deciding he is gay? He is MARRIED AGAIN – to another WOMAN. He is NOT gay, get it through your thick head.

  41. TherapyCranes says:

    Eh… It was a slam to both of them. She was just responding that she’s going to laugh rather than get mad at people insulting them. I really don’t see any reason for him to respond to her. If he was offended by being called gay he should have responded to the offending picture/tweet.

    • Bella says:

      It seems to me that Dean completely ignored the joke at his expense and wasn’t offended by being called gay, so much as he was irritated by his ex-wife’s strange version of taking the high road of disengagement. Nothing says, I’m above it all, like retweeting the disparaging remark to an even larger audience! That Dean chose to call out LeAnn for failing to recognize the hypocrisy of her NOH8 stance is commendable. It is hardly a noble, appropriate, or, helpful response to laugh at the ignorance of false (and ancient) rumours….A true anti-bullying advocate would know this and use their social media savvy wisely to promote this cause.

  42. Bridget says:

    Do we think Leanne posts under other handles here too?

  43. Krissy says:

    Omg she didn’t want to comment abt dean prob bc he’s an ex!!! She was laughing abt being called a country bumpkin. Besides, who cares?! Half u ladies need to be strapped to a stretcher in a mental ward. U get so hyped all over this woman.

  44. Jane says:

    Dean has more class in his pinky finger than Lean and Eddie have in their whole body. He seems to be the only sane one in this whole fiasco.

  45. Snowpea says:

    Alot of us have been following this story a long long time but have almost exhausted all my energy on it and barely know what there is to say anymore.

    It has transmogrified into a very disturbing, distressing story that is spiralling into a dark place that involves madness, desperation and despair.

    After watching this malarkey for a long time now, and seeing how soft and together Rimes was with Dean, I am now convinced that Eddie is the villain in this whole terrible caper and she was his willing victim.

    • Jane says:

      Totally. I prefer to use a term I heard used by a member of the heavy metal rock group Metallica…this is one major clusterf**k. This whole situation defied logic and reasoning suitable for using words from Webster’s Dictionary.

    • Lolo-ology says:

      I’m just waiting for the epic season finale blow-out. Then I will wash my hands of all this 😉

      • brin says:

        May not be waiting too long…if that pic of the empty campsite on her twitter page is any indication.

  46. Kerrboom says:

    Well, he is a “pretty” man…but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s gay. However, the rumors about him being gay have been floating around for a while now, and there has to be a reason for it. There’ve been rumors about John Travolta for years and years, and they were pretty much confirmed with “Masseur-Gate”.

    Either way, LeAnn sucks and I wish she’d just go the hell away already. Her career is ruined and the fact she spends every waking moment on Twatter is pathetic.

  47. Jennifer12 says:

    Dean has never overreacted before, so I’m betting he knew exactly where those rumors originated and wants them to stop already. Leann could’ve said something like, “I had some baby fat then, it’s true, but Dean is not gay.” Or, “I’d like to clear up the rumor about Dean being gay.” She’s a sociopathic liar and evil to boot. Being gay is not like having a toupee- you can’t just spot it. Come on. Dean was a pretty boy and a dancer, so apparently that means being gay? Way to stereotype. He looks like a lot of those gymrats on reality shows- carefully tended hair and brows, etc.

  48. Jayna says:

    LeAnn really had peaches and cream skin, beauitful complexion looking at her photos with Dean. Then look down at the one with Eddie. She looks like she is in her late thirties with her skin tone and her compexion is not glowing and not flattering compared to the Dean photos. That fake tan or whatever it is is not flattering on her face. It hardens her.

  49. dontbuyit says:

    It was a dig, plain and simple. Many people on Twitter have insulted her looks for years. Why address this specific tweet to laugh at? Because it referenced Dean as gay.
    Would she have responded if the original tweet just focused on calling her fat and not included Dean? No. Like all the the other tweets before this one that insulted her looks, this twitter account wouldn’t have gotten a response, just a block. Butt hurt and scared because Dean was scheduled to appear on Brandi’s podcast.

    This one calculated response backfired in her face and showed her true colors on how she views noh8. For some people, a cause is just a paycheck and a way for getting great publicity.

  50. Sonia says:

    Oh my word I wish she could go back to this person in these pictures! Healthy, pre surgery, and happy. Not necessarily married to anyone but it’s so sad how happy and healthy she looked here compared to how she is now. 🙁

  51. d b says:

    Dean has moved on with his life–i.e., he has a REAL life — and it would be nice if the Twitter Twins © (LeeAnne and Brandi with the podcast) let him get on with it

    • Zooyork says:

      Omg wow… I’m just on the first comment of that thread (the comment by the person who used to work for leann… Holy cow he has nothing nice to say about her!)
      Thanks for alerting to this and providing the link. Very interesting what a brat she was even then….. She was maybe worse than she is now!!!
      I want her to get hit with the karma train SO hard. No one deserves it more.

  52. Moi says:

    I don’t usually waste my time on these posts, but I clicked on it anyway and have to say, LR was absolutely adorable back when she was married to her first hubby. Secondly, I think she meant “I’m going to laugh at your ridiculous tweet as opposed to getting into a fight about it”. Jmo

  53. Blackbetty says:

    These people provide more drama than watching a soapie on tv. Leanne really did look so much better with Dean. Team Dean! I find it laughable that Leanne did an ad for NOH8

  54. ToodySezHey says:

    I see the jackals are howling at the bit today and everyone has their panties in a wad in their thirst to out condemn Le Anne.

    Now dont get it twisted, I could care less about LeAnne and her famewhoring and her extra thirsty clingy relationship to her douche of a husband.

    But….honestly, when I read the twitter, I dont understand how people are saying she was co-signing the gay rumors. If y’all can remove your anti-LeAnne lenses for two seconds and actually thing about what she wrote, her twitter response was basically the equivalent of “yeah…ok, whatever dude”.

    Thats how I read it and I honestly dont see how anyone with 1/3 of a functioning brain can interpret it otherwise, especially in her respone to her ex’s tweets. Dean sounds like a hit dog hollering out. Or maybe he just reacts irrationally to anything his ex says and does. Or maybe he just…overreacted?

    Seems to me Dean was all up in his feelings and completely overreacted or misinterpreted what LeAnne was trying to say.

    And to everybody saying she shoulna said this, or she shoulda did that. For fugg’s sake, its a goddamned twitter response. We aint talking about her accidentally leaving her baby in the oven, or getting her cat stuck in the vacume cleaner. Get over yourselves.

  55. Cindy says:

    This is Leann’s entire life now, tweeting passive insults to the people in her life and trolling the gossip blogs to fight with strangers. This is what got her into to trouble when she stalked Kim Smiley. She has no life other than these juvenile internet fights. Scary.
