LeAnn Rimes steps out to celebrate her Hallmark Channel Christmas movie

Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Summer 2018 TCA

It’s been Vintage Celebitchy Week here for some reason. We didn’t plan it out, it just happened organically, where we had vintage-flavor stories about people like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and now LeAnn Rimes. LeAnn made an appearance at last night’s Hallmark Channel Summer Party. Something nice: she seems like she’s at a healthy weight and she doesn’t look like she’s blatantly Single-White-Female-ing another woman. Something mean: her hair is an absolute catastrophe. I’ve never wanted to give another woman a total hair makeover so much.

Some people side-eye the Hallmark Channel, but you know what? There’s actually a huge audience for those sugary TV movies about families and romances-involving-hand-holding. The Hallmark Channel is popular with the church-going crowd and people like my mom, who binges on Hallmark movies during the holidays. This is the demographic LeAnn wants to appeal to, and so she’s trying. She attended this party because she’ll have her own Hallmark Channel Christmas movie coming out in December. It’s called It’s Christmas, Eve. She plays “Interim school superintendent Eve Morgan” who has to shut down a school’s “failing music program.” I’m absolutely positive this will involve LeAnn singing to a group of children.

So there you go – LeAnn is in a Christmas movie. She’ll probably do a Christmas tour and another Christmas album. And where’s Eddie Cibrian? Knee-deep in Canadian strange, would be my guess.

    The hair extensions are a travesty, her outfit is ridiculous and for the love of God, put on a bra!

    • Mandie Smith says:

      Her extensions look like dollar store yarn. Didn’t she just have some hoity toilet colonist do her hair? She is an awful testimonial to his work

      • Jane says:

        @Mandie Smith–a Part of me would like to think her stylist secretly dislikes her. Thus he/she puts these ratty/fried extensions on to make her look bad. I think the same goes for her makeup artist. Now if LeAnn does her own makeup, the woman needs glasses because, she cannot see she’s going for the Joan Crawford eyebrow look.

      • Lady D says:

        Did you mean toilet, Mandie Smith or was that just a funny/appropriate typo?

      • j says:

        *hoity toilet colonic

      • KidV says:

        @J – You mean a bidet?


      • Mandie Smith says:

        I typed in toity but it kept correcting to toilet. So I was like, okay we we will go with that. I also meant color ist not colonist. I can’t stop laughing because I have this picture of George Washington doing her hair

  2. Shelly says:

    She literally look like something the cat dragged in the morning after the beach party.

  3. RedOnTheHead says:

    Came to say that even though LeAnn is still problematic AF, the remake of her song Borrowed with Stevie Nicks is amazing. Beautiful duet. I don’t listen to LeAnns music, I stumbled across the song on YouTube. Just can’t understand how someone with that talent treats it like an afterthought.

    • holly hobby says:

      She pretty much squandered her talent on bad men (Eddie), stalking and poor choices. I know Dean pretty much held her career up when they were married. He had said all they talked about was her career and what to do etc but he kept the crazy down during that time. She should focus more on her career than who Eddie is boinking with (lots apparently).

    • Evie says:

      Ewwww I just looked this up on your recommendation and the song is about ‘borrowing’ another woman’s husband. No thanks!

      • BrutalEthyl says:

        You didn’t know that before you clicked on? lol I’m so sorry. It must have been horrible to come up on that without warning. 🙂

      • whatWHAT? says:

        pretty sure it’s autobiographical and it was about her “affair” with Cibrian.

        which kind of makes it even more of an “ew”.

    • jwoolman says:

      She really does have a nice voice. My guess is that she started so terribly young that she really got tired of it but felt she couldn’t really do anything else. Kind of trapped in a certain job and lifestyle.

      She at least looks like herself in these photos. She was unrecognizable in the last ones I saw here, but maybe that was due to stage makeup and lights.

  4. Giddy says:

    I know that heavier eyebrows are in right now,, but y’all are going to have to tell me if this is the right look. To me they look like they were done with a Sharpie and a stencil, and have no relation to actual brows.

    • Natalia says:

      I was just coming here to say that. Why can’t some women realize that heavy brows look horrible on them? We don’t always have to follow trends, for God’s sake.

      • minx says:

        They look terrible on me. I have deep set eyes and need a thinner, arched brow to make them stand out. I don’t care what is in style, I know what looks good on me.

    • WingKingdom says:

      I think the massive amount of botox between her brows is part of the problem.

    • BrutalEthyl says:

      Those eyebrows unfortunately highlight her eyes, which are her worst feature IMO. She needs to have those brows thinned, shaped and lightened to balance her face.

      And I have to say that there is one good thing about that stringy, fried hair. It’s almost long enough to cover those wanky boobs. Just a couple more inches and we won’t have to look at those wandering boobies every time she’s photographed.

  5. Bridget says:

    It amuses me to no end that she and Eddie are stuck with each other.

    • Tate says:

      Same. 😂😂 She keeps trying to sell their epic love story and he looks miserable AF. 😆😆

      • Mandie Smith says:

        The outright nasty looks he gives her in unguarded moments. I’ve never looked that way at someone I liked

      • Jane says:

        @ Tate: I’ve seen behind the scenes pictures of Eddie and his new co-star, and he looks more lovingly at her than LeAnn. That says a lot. He also has a huge s*** eating grin on his face as well.

      • Carrie1 says:

        As does she. They must have joint karma or something.

        What came to mind looking at her in this post is that she finally looking like herself again. Now that she has nobody to copy, she lacks a template, so this is her in all her own glory. She doesn’t seem to know what to do with herself in terms of styling.

      • Tate says:

        He looks at her with such contempt. I would sleep with one eye open if I were her. 👁

  6. Laura says:

    Even though her personal life is a dumpster fire most of the time, I still enjoy LeAnn’s music. I have loved her voice since she released her first album 💕

  7. Zapp Brannigan says:

    I fudging love Hallmark Channel movies, I will never admit that in public. I really enjoy the ones with Lacey Chabert, they appeal to the 1990’s tv watcher in me. When I was having a tough patch in life and everything seemed a struggle they were my comfort blanket.

    • LA says:

      Right there with ya.

    • CityGirl says:

      I am with you 100% (although I am just as unabashadly loud and proud about my Hallmark movie watching as I am about my Real Housewives watching)!
      Especially in today’s trying times, and with my chronic singlehood, I really enjoy my sugary sweet, happy ending, movies.

    • broodytrudy says:

      My dad is a big burly air force vet with super severe ptsd and that man LIVES for Hallmark movie season. He cried more two days of me watching Hallmark movies with him than I’d ever seen in my whole life. He loves them and I love that they help his mental health. No shame!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I haven’t seen one of their holiday movies, but have a friend filming “A Christmas at Graceland”, so I am going to have to watch. I think it is kind of cute that they found a demand and have committed to filling the need.

    • KNy says:

      OMG I love the one where she moves back to her hometown with her daughter and Mariah Carey mean girls her.

    • Christin says:

      Zapp, I had the same experience a couple of years ago. I binge watched the holiday movies during an especially tough Christmas season, and they were a comfort. Each story ended nicely, and something about the aesthetics (scenery, colors, etc.) was soothing.

      I’m just surprised they cast her instead of a lower key celebrity. This promotion is going to be all about her before it’s over.

    • minx says:

      Hey, you like what you like. That’s great.

    • Sharon Lea says:

      Yep, I love the Lacey Chabert movies too.

  8. Beth says:

    That is a hideous outfit. A tank top tucked into a high wasted tinfoil skirt is not fashionable. Did she buy that belt at the dollar store? She’s not a stylish dresser, so it’s not shocking to see her dressed so badly

  9. Ang says:

    I think she looks very trashy and her makeup looks like a small child put it on her. That hair is atrocious for real.

  10. Sarah says:

    Wow- she looks as old as Ediot! 😮
    Living a lie is hard on your soul.

    • Christin says:

      Didn’t she or her flying monkeys make fun of his ex for being “old” (even though B is the same age as Ed)? Now, if I had to guess her age, I’d say mid to late 40s, and Ed looks early to mid-50s. Funny how karma works, isn’t it.

      • Tate says:

        Yep, they called her a bitter old ex.

      • Jess says:

        Yep, they constantly made fun of her for being old, which was terrible considering LeAnn had just banged her husband. I don’t get why they were so mean, now LeAnn is getting to that same age, and look how rough she looks! She doesn’t even have kids to say they’ve aged her or anything, it’s all booze and living in fear of your husband cheating. It’s exactly what she deserves!

  11. Chaine says:

    I don’t care about her hair–it looks like the same cheap awful stringy extensions that all the other Hollywood fake blondes wear so they blend in with everyone else. But she DEFINITELY needs an eyebrow makeover.

  12. Aerohead21 says:

    Good for her being a home wrecker and appealing to a church going crowd. All snark aside, I agree she looks healthy but the outfit itself is not flattering to her figure. I think the hair is not the worst part here.

  13. girl_ninja says:

    She was such a big star as a young teen. Her voice is even better now, I think its better than Careie Underwood and that Miranda Lambert. Sure she’s messy in her personal life, but so is Lambert and Carrie is always talking about her face being broken and whatnot.

    What is it? Does she need a better team? A better music producer? A better stylist?

    • WingKingdom says:

      She needs to write better music. Her lyrics are not relatable at all. Her smugness and insistence that her life and marriage are perfect don’t make for relatable songs.

      • Mandie Smith says:

        Better writers…..

        Dang dang you sure like to bang bang a lot
        Dang dang you sure like to bang bang

        Today today today today is Christmas
        If we’re living like living like every day it is
        Today today today today today is Christmas
        If we’re living like living like living like everyday it is

      • Mandie Smith says:

        I bet it’s you and me and Christmas will go something like this

        It’s you and me and Christmas baby it’s you and me and Christmas
        It’s you and me and Christmas baby it’s you and me and Christmas

        It’s Christmas Eve

        It’s Christmas Eve it’s Christmas eve it’s Christmas eve tonight
        It’s Christmas eve it’s Christmas eve it’s Christmas eve
        Come on let’s celebrate it right

        I will be surprised if it’s anything different

      • elle says:

        @MandieSmith… whaa?? I’ve never had the misfortune to hear either of those (or are they the same song?). Whose/what is that?

      • Christin says:

        @elle – Mandie’s first post features two genuine (or gen-U-wine, in Southern speak) LeAnn lyrical masterpieces. No kidding.

      • Mandie Smith says:

        @Elle The first two songs are songs that Leann wrote with Darell. The next two are the songs I wrote for her. That’s her style just repeating the same line over and over. If her new Christmas songs are really like that. I had better get royalties. LOL!

    • Jana says:

      She definitely needs someone to help out with her career. This summer she has been on the California County Fair circuit, along with Eddie Money and Smash Mouth. Yikes. Once a formerly popular musician has signed up on the County Fair circuit…well.

      • SallyTomato says:

        I had to laugh at this because she’ll be at my local fair next month. It’s on the smaller side so all the acts are free with admission. Last year we were blessed with the Smash Mouth/Sugar Ray combo, so yeah… Our fair is on that level.

    • joanne says:

      you cannot equate Carrie talking about an accident that injured her face with Miranda and Leann’s skanky behaviour. both Leann and Miranda have broken up marriages including their own. Leann’s biggest problem is her nasty personality. she was nasty and rude to people in Nashville when she was big. they want nothing to do with her now. her behaviour to Eddie’s ex-wife for the last 9 years was disgusting. she would need a complete personality make-over to even attempt a comeback now.

      • girl_ninja says:

        Meh…popular country singers who are making headlines. Face injuries or cheating. Still headlines.

    • Erinn says:

      She could show up to the shows she books for starters. The other women might be messy but they WORK HARD – something Leann hasn’t done since she was a young teen.

  14. jules says:

    She looks like she’s doing the morning after walk of shame. But I’m happy she’s at a healthier weight.

  15. whatWHAT? says:

    “she doesn’t look like she’s blatantly Single-White-Female-ing another woman.”

    she doesn’t? I disagree. the first thought I had was “oh, her transformation to Brandi is almost complete”.

  16. mela says:

    her hair looks like a mop

    i can’t wait to see this hallmark movie tho!

    • BrutalEthyl says:

      As long as she doesn’t sing that Hippopotamus song it might be bearable.

      Nope, who am I kidding? I might watch it for the high camp but if she starts singing like she thinks she’s Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music, I’m done.

  17. Mandie Smith says:

    From one thicc waisted girl to another. A belt at the thickest part of your body. Doesn’t look good at all. It just makes you look really fat. For the love of Mary, put on a bra. Your boobs look like they’re trying to escape.

    • DIRTNAP says:

      Amen to that, @Mandie. My waist is the same. Belts are a big no. Will LeAnn ever get the memo?

      Also, I know Canadians are famous for being super nice, but are they really so nice that they would allow Eddie to wade knee-deep into their strange? I think that goes a bit beyond Canadian hospitality.

  18. Penelope says:

    LeAnn has never, ever had a clue as to how to dress or style herself in general. This outfit is trashy and cheap, as so much of her wardrobe is. And the eyebrows are hideous–almost like she’s trolling for attention.

    I read somewhere that she’s SWFing Rachel Bilson (Eddie’s new co-star) with the eyebrows but that may be a stretch. With LeAnn, who knows though. 🙂

  19. why? says:

    What is she wearing? If you look through the photos of the other people who attended the event, they came dressed up. Not Leann Rimes. It’s like she rolled out of bed and put on whatever was on the floor. Why would she wear such an unflattering shirt? She needs to wear a bra at all times and sue whoever did her implants. Whoever is doing her make-up and hair and letting her walk out of the door dressed like this, must hate her. Why does she look so greasy? Is that sweat? What is she doing to her face? This just goes to show that she is photoshopping and filtering the photos that she posts to IG of herself. She tries way too hard to be sexy and fails every time.

    • Joy says:

      You could park an SUV between those ugly implants.

    • Christin says:

      My question is, what did the movie producers/network expect? And it will likely only get messier.

    • Jane says:

      Her idea of sexy is most people’s idea of skanky.

      • Christin says:

        Remember the TV Christmas special where she filled in for Mariah? She wore a trench coat with some kind of trashy looking retro outfit underneath. For a family Christmas special!

      • Jane says:

        @ Christin-OMG…YES! She also wore red lipstick. There was a freeze frame picture of her with that mouth open in a hideous “Joker” laugh and her eyes were so squinty that had made me cringe. To me it looked as if she had a black negligee underneath the green trench. She thought she was the sexiest thing on earth. I say she was wasted out of her mind.

  20. Enn says:

    My contribution is that I love Rachel Bilson and am enjoying her new show so I really hope LeAnn doesn’t ruin it.

    • Jane says:

      Eddie has one of the worst track records for holding on to a role on television.

      While I do not have the specifics; generally speaking I believe he lasted only one season on CSI Miami then got canned, Playboy Club lasted I think 3 episodes, Leann and Eddie lasted a season and was destroyed by critics, Baby Daddy perhaps 3 or 4 episodes, and on Rosewood he lasted only 1 season.

      I do not hold much hope for his current. Eddie simply cannot act and he relies on what he thinks are his good looks to get through the role.

      There are also conspiracy theories stating that Leann came on many of these shows and was a complete stalker/ nuisance with his costars behind the scenes.

      • Tommy Longstocking says:

        Paging Stacie in craft services – Eddie would like you to visit him in his trailer and don’t forget the waitress outfit

      • annabanana says:

        I actually find take two enjoyable and relaxing and find eddie extremely watchable, him and rachel bilson are both great. Hope it lasts long, it’s really kinda like castle, if you enjoyed castle you’ll probably enjoy it too

  21. Joy says:

  22. D says:

    Uhhhh no she’s not a good choice with this crowd. I speak from being “this crowd” lol this will be avoided like the plague I like the sugary movies but all I want singer wise for Christmas is Mimi ! And she certainly doesn’t know this SWF

  23. jennifer says:

    oh the beauty that is leann! her golden locks shine in the sun. her skin is like buttermilk. her body is so shapely and beautiful all you people are just jealous because she can do things with her boobs that you can’t. like tuck them under her arms. you want her husband too. all five strains of HPV that he’s got. don’t deny it. you listen to her music every night and dream of being her…

  24. Paris says:

    To promote Christmas movie in July?
