LeAnn Rimes checked into rehab last month. She cited “anxiety and stress” originally, and she recently opened up about what exactly pushed her to finally seek help.
In an interview with People Magazine, LeAnne confessed, “I just want to be happier and healthier more consistently. I don’t want to wake up and not truly be enjoying my life and these amazing things around me.”
We absolutely appreciate re-centering your life, focusing on living happily, appreciating those around you, and building the faith you have in yourself. And, I can imagine, it is difficult to admit that when you live a life in constant scrutiny.
But, I have to remind myself that karma is a total bitch, and that LeAnn had an affair with current husband, Eddie Cibrian (who was then married to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills guest star, Brandi Glanville). Eddie and Brandi have two kids. So, basically you could say that LeAnn’s low self esteem and the image of “a child then I look and see a woman who should be turning 60” in the mirror is probably karma making sure that the home wrecking tramp gets hers.
“It’s been difficult to tune people out, especially in the last few years,” LeAnn admitted. Hmm . . . these last few years, as in the years she spent having an affair (one in which both parties were still married), breaking up a family, and refusing to shy away into a private life (my own dream for her).
Now she is suing two women for cyber bullying. You know what, LeAnn? Whatever. I am so over being on your team. Based on her actions (and remember, she was quoted as saying she regrets her affair, but not the marriage—basically admitting, the ends justified the means) I can’t see her as anything but a selfish woman who has little to no compassion for others, so long as she gets what she wants. Hopefully she’ll get help in rehab and emerge as a competent adult who takes responsibility for her actions!
