LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Split Nears: Regrets Marrying Leann as Her Career Flounders (PHOTOS)

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Split Nears: Regrets Marrying Leann as Her Career Flounders (PHOTOS)

LeAnn Rimes, who has been allegedly struggling as of late with her drinking problem, now has even more reasons to hit the bottle because the truth about her and her life is coming to the surface and there is little anyone around her can do to stop it. Eddie Cibrian wants to leave her but can’t until they rap up LeAnn’s latest disaster – the entirely scripted “reality” show they are filming for VH1.

Eddie who married LeAnn after Brandi Glanville kicked him out did it solely for the Benjamins, but back then LeAnn had a lid on her crazy and he never expected that he would end up as her babysitter and prisoner. He just figured he could have access to her big bank account by sleeping with her once a month in a really dark room with his eyes squeezed shut.

It didn’t take long for Eddie to learn that when you marry for money you soon earn your keep. He has aged drastically since their marriage, and the happiest he has looked was this past September when she was off in Europe cancelling concerts because she was too hung over, and breaking her hand when she punched a wall dropped a weight on it. One major reason for the grin he was seen sporting is that while psycho wifey was away he was finally able to have a heart to heart with Brandi who he has never gotten over. He used this rare moment alone to beg his New York Times Best Selling Author ex for forgiveness, and even confessed that life with his new ATM love is horrible.

According to Just Say Jenn! - who in my humble opinion is totally fricken awesome – LeAnn has been having one bad day after another; which is really just her plethora of bad karma catching up to her.

First off her music career is dead in the water. Her last album was more shitfire than Spitfire and she is desperate for a comeback. She is hoping that at least one song on that atrocious album will be a hit but it takes more than a good set of lungs to make a hit. Not helping the situation is that no radio stations will play her songs because the quickest way to get your audience to switch the station is to play one of her tunes. Yes, people hate LeAnn Rimes.

The nail in the coffin that is her career is that at the point where her record company is unwilling to shell out any more money on her because she no longer is able to generate sales or musical interest. You don’t have to have a degree in economics to know that spending more money than you are making on a commodity is just bad business. But before you go and start feeling sad for desperate Rimes remember that this is the same record company that she sued back in 2000 in a fruitless attempt to have her recording contract nullified, despite the fact that they gave her her big break. Now they are more than willing to let her go. That is what I call poetic justice.

Speaking of suing her record company is just one of many frivolous lawsuits that have been filed on LeAnn’s behalf. In 1998 she sued her own father and showed us the first signs of her emotional instability when she not so subtly mouthed, “I hate you,” to him in open court. She has also sued her Dentist blaming her messed up grill for her inability to perform. As if it was his fault she is ugly as sin and too scared to leave Eddie alone for even a second to actually do her job – perform.

In what is quite possibly her most frivolous and mean spirited lawsuit to date she is suing a special education teacher Kim Smiley and her daughter Lexi Smiley who SHE called in a PUBLIC restaurant and cussed out over SPEAKERPHONE, but claims invaded her privacy. The real reason she is upset is that she lied to Eddie about that phone call – because it is weird for a celeb, even a pseudo one, to call regular Joes because they tweeted something nice about your husband’s ex – and is embarrassed that it exposed her for the bully and classless person that she is.

Her other project is a scripted reality show with her future ex-husband Eddie, but rumor has it that her frequent episodes of intense anger and irritability continue to put production at risk. The network is regretting ever starting this project and everyone just wants it to be done.

Adding to her mental breakdown is the realization that she is used to being in a place of power and control over those around her, but has now become a liability. Eddie thought marrying LeAnn would help his D list career but it has actually hindered it. He has two possible projects in the pipeline and he isn’t willing to lose them because of her. Also telling of her diminished star status is that she and Brandi have about the same number of twitter followers, and unlike LeAnn, Brandi didn’t buy most of hers.

Speaking of twitter her emotional instability is painfully evident by looking at her feed. What she doesn’t seem to get is that by spending every waken moment on twitter trying to convince us she is happy the more we realize that she has no personal or professional life. You simply can’t post every minute of the day and be leading a productive life. Fact. Furthermore happy people do not feel the need to constantly say how happy they are, and happy celebrities do not get into random twitter wars with regular people. For example (and there are many) the other day LeAnn posted a picture of her hand splint, the next day she posted a picture of her doing all kinds of things that are impossible with a broken hand and no hand splint so someone called her out on it and of course she had to engage:

@leannrimes Where’s the splint and brace that was fitted for half a day? LMAO !!!!! The one for the fake broken fingers? That one?

@MsNancyMitford I was filming and had to take it off so go laugh your ass off somewhere els thx

Thing is that person had a point if her hand is indeed broken and this is supposed to be her and Eddie’s way to show us their reality then why couldn’t she wear her splint? Can’t say I am surprised though because this chick is the epitome of all that is irrational and senseless.

If she wasn’t such an uber bitch who is constantly tormenting Brandi by trying to lay claim to Mason and Jake, and trying to ruin a special education teacher’s livelihood I could almost feel sorry for her. I say this because it has got to suck to know that you bought your husband and that as soon as the checks begin to bounce he is gone. It is also hard to be in an industry that focuses on external beauty – something LeAnn was not born with, which is just my nice way of saying she is ugly. Sure girl can yodel but that is where her talent ends.

My better judgment tells me to just stop writing about LeAnn because it is a losing battle – you can’t rationalize with the irrational. But she just makes it too damn easy and quite frankly it is just too damn fun. In fact I believe that I am owed a thank you – along with anyone else on twitter or any blog that even gives her the time of day because we are the only thing keeping her relevant. It certainly isn’t her career.

Oh and in a very much related note I just read the most interesting article on Borderline Personality Disorder – might want to check it out Ms. Rimes.

    LeAnn will never learn how to keep her yap shut and digs a deeper hole for herself with every passing day. Her raging insecurities are taking over every aspect of her life.

  • Holly

    I love how LeAnn stands up for herself. She is true to what she writes. I remember that the children’s book that she and Dean wrote together named Jag was about self defense against those who love to harass other people. They couldn’t have picked a better subject to write about.

    God bless you and them always!!!

      God’s got time to bless over-privileged, insecure bullies who spend their time engaging in childish behavior on social media, huh?

      Instead of the Rimes/Cibrian household, one would think your omnipotent sky monster’s efforts would be better spent on, oh, I don’t know, helping the people of Darfur or something of actual importance.

    • Mary Andraso

      Go away Holly or I will tell everyone that you got your heat pump repaired by Margaret in return for sticking up for her on these sites. Oops! I already said it!

      • Holly

        I never needed LeAnn’s money for anything. Not when the Lord decided that he was ready for my grandmother to be up there with him back in April, may she rest in peace.

        God bless you and LeAnn always!!!

        P.S. You should consider yourself lucky that your family is nothing like mine. Losing one member a year would be considered a day at the swimming pool for me.

  • Shawnte’

    Well written article. Some may say it is one sided; those would be the people who have not been paying attention to the behavior of Ms. Rimes. People who have money don’t go around saying “I have money”. People who know they are pretty don’t have to go around saying “I am pretty”. And lastly, people that are truly happy don’t feel the need to post “I am so happy” 10 times a day on twitter. It must be exhausting to be so miserable and inseucre. It must also suck to be married to a man that was once married to a model, esp when you look like Leann.

    • Mary Andraso

      And having the “sloppy seconds” that was once the husband of someone as beautiful as Brandi.

  • Little Sister

    Enjoyed the read very much. I agree…train wreck pending.

  • GreatPaige

    I will never understand people that do not think to use common decency where others, especially your step child you profess to love, are concerned. KEEP YOUR FILTHY FEET OFF THAT CHILDS EFFING WATER PITCHER! He drinks out of that you idiot!!!

    • norma warner

      Amen!

  • Sarah

    This “author” is nothing but a liar. Sick, twisted bully. Get a life Julie.

    • gonoles1

      Leann, I mean Sarah, go play somewhere or tweet another stupid tweet!

  • Wendy Bell

    Leave the girl alone. This article was so wicked about Rimes it was unbelievable. Yes, she had an affair a while back but she doesn’t need to pay for it the rest of her life. About Brandi, that woman is a liar, a drunk, sleeps around like nobody’s business and has such a foul mouth. Eddie deserves what he gets. He is despicable as a human being. Oh, and he is not that great of an actor.

    • MyOpinion

      Leann is also a drunk liar who has a foul mouth and sleeps around. That’s not the point. She tweets 24/7, calls the paps to take her pictures and sells them. Those are not her children to pimp out. This is wrong! She also used fake twitter accounts to harass the mother of her second husband’s children. She also has her employees harass the mother of said children. These actions are what has harmed her career, not the affair. She should have faded away quietly instead of jumping up and down saying ‘look at me, see what I got…a family.’ She tormented Brandi Glanville for years! There was no reason for it, none, whatsoever! Brandi is over it, she has owned up to her mistakes, while leann is still trying to play the victim, when she is the bully. I agree about Eddie, he is scum to allow this woman to pimp out his kids and harass their mother the way he has.

      • Wendy Bell

        Let’s get real. The point is that Brandi is all I mentioned in my previous post which is that she is foul mouthed, vulgar, and a sleep around. I might add that she exhibits this on national television. She is NOT A VICTIM! As for her kids, Leann is their step mother and I really don’t think she mistreats them. They live most of their lives with Brandi so if we are told the kids hate Leann it has to be because Brandi says it. Kids of their ages don’t know hate unless they are told or shown hate. I never said Leann was an angel but come on, give the young one a break. Brandi is older and should clean up her act. Oh, I forgot, she needs drama in her life so she can stay on series otherwise she would be dull.

        • norma warner

          Brandi said the kids love LR. So your point is?

  • MyOpinion

    Leann’s own words via twitter and actions have wrecked her career. Eddie’s ex has nothing to do with Leann’s situation, but she’s quite the drinker herself. Read up on her European tour, canceled concerts, all night bars, etc. See what you find.

  • MyOpinion

    Vegas? As in Las Vegas? No, indeed she cannot. Leann now sings at county fairs, zoo grand openings and such. She can’t even sell out a small arena. Her European concert tickets were being offered for $5.

    • Debbie

      Where do you get your info? Leann was on an awards show, where she received a standing ovation. She has also been on late night talk shows. You are terrible people to say things about her looks and drinking etc. There are very top names that appear at fairs. We have a huge country outdoor concert every year in Wisconsin. Don’t laugh at anyone, before you look at yourself. She is not the home wrecker, Eddie is the one who left his wife and children. Brandi did not throw him out. Get your facts straight, before you go flap your mouths.

      • MyOpinion

        Wow, three months later…..Yes, Brandi did throw him out when she found out that he was a serial cheater, not just a one time thing with Leann. I get my information from Leann’s twitter and concert schedule posted at her website. She cancels MANY shows, she does preform at zoo grand openings, fairs and casinos. I don’t laugh at Leann, she can’t help how she looks. I take issue with some of the things she says on twitter and in interviews about other peoples children!

  • B-Shoc

    Vegas? I’m not sure that even Leann Rimes is that delusional.

  • Roxanne Lee

    This article is disgusting! It seems pathetic that the author feels the need to write such filth. Why do you get off talking shit about other people and their life decisions?
    “He just figured he could have access to her big bank account by sleeping with her once a month in a really dark room with his eyes squeezed shut.”
    Like I am sure your boyfriend/husband puts a bag over YOUR head during sex! Why don’t you show us all a picture of your “pretty” face if you feel you are so much hotter than Leann.

  • Roxanne Lee

    That’s because Brandi is a fame whore.

  • Nauncling

    I see you’re blind to the 24 hour Twitter rampage that made headlines two weeks ago. Glanville was not involved, only a drunken Leann Rimes.
    VH1 fined her 20k for bad behavior and hurting profits. task, task…

    • Holly

      If such a thing actually took place, how come it was never written about? I just checked and I did not find a thing written about it. Therefore, all that I have to go on is what you say about it here and your word means doesn’t mean a thing to me.

      God bless you and LeAnn always!!!

  • Nauncling

    Vegas turned her down, flat. It was two months ago.
    They laughed at her.
    One offered her the opening act in Tahoe?
    Rimes cant fill 800 seat theatres in 3rd rate padunk Indian casinos. She tried last year. She booked over 20.
    Empty seats.

    Brandi did indeed model. There are photos online. Can’t you google?

  • norma warner

    What career? You must mean the drunk in the UK tour where 2000-seat venues were barely half sold.

  • celebrity gossip

    wow.. I mean i’m not a LeAnn rimes fan, actually. until a couple months ago I didn’t even know she was a singer, I just thought she was famous because–well because she was famous. you know since its Hollywood and you don’t really need to contribute to the arts (or really anything besides funding the tabloids)to be famous. kinda like paris Hilton or the kardashian clan. but this is the mother of all bias. most gossip columnists or bloggers post material that is derogatory and slanderous but in a “public’s opinion” third person sort of way, but you Julie zelko clearly sound like a hurt little brandi fan ganging up on rimes because you’re pissed at her for your idol about the whole home wrecking thing. to that I say get a life. you sound like those teen girls crying at Justin bieber concerts and threathening Olivia wilde because she told him to put his shirt back on. kinda sad if you ask me.

  • celebrity gossip

    I don’t think my last comment was not approved for being snarky to the writer. well i’m trying again. and again not a leAnn rimes fan. didn’t even know she was a singer until a couple months ago. just thought she was famous because she was. kinda like paris Hilton or the kardashian clan. you know since you don’t really need to be a contributor to the arts (or really anything besides funding the tabloids and media) and although that last picture of her with the magical “dog thing” from the neverending story was remarkably comical for the similarities I have to say I can’t deny the obvious bias in your writing. it’s blatantly obvious. most gossip mongers..i mean bloggers/writers have the decency to post their gossip in a “public’s opinion” third person sort of way. but you, Julie zelko just come off sounding like a hurt little brandi fan slamming rimes for the whole home wrecking thing because you’re angry for your idol. kinda like those jb fans who cry at his concerts and threaten Olivia wilde’s life because she told him via twitter to put his shirt back on. I mean really. get over it.

  • Benny Reid

    You people need to desperately get a life and no everyone that has an opinion is definitely not LeAnn or Brandi. I personally don’t really believe either one of these ladies have time for this insanity. These comments are filled with such hatred and craziness for people you don’t even know. I feel sorry for your real families If this is how you feel towards strangers.
