LeAnn Rimes: Rehab Is Not For An Eating Disorder

Country singer LeAnn Rimes has voluntarily entered a 30-day treatment program to “learn and develop coping mechanisms”, according to her publicist, Marcel Pariseau. Her reps are stressing that it is not rehabilitation for a drug problem or an eating disorder.

Although the star has been fairly quiet about the reason for her need to get away for a while, it’s been reported that she filed a lawsuit earlier this week against two women for secretly taping a phone conversation she had with them and posting excerpts of the recording online in an apparent effort to throw a negative light on her. The women, Kimberly and Lexi Smiley, are accused by LeAnn of cyber-bullying on behalf of their friend Brandi Glanville, one of the stars of “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” and the ex-wife of LeAnn’s husband, Eddie Cibrian. LeAnn and Eddie met on the set of the film “Northern Lights” while he was still married to Glanville; LeAnn was married at the time, as well. The two developed a relationship which ultimately dissolved both marriages, and since then she has been the target of quite a bit of animosity from friends and supporters of Glanville.

The recordings were posted to gossip websites like Celebitchy.com, and Rimes says in the suit that they were deliberately cut up and used out of context in an effort to put her in a negative light, and that they have “harmed her reputation and personal relationships and have caused her emotional distress.”

“This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be,” she says. “All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I’m hoping they’re not going to affect me as much. I’ll have the tools to know how to deal with them.”

    I think LeAnn Rimes is getting a taste of her own medicine. Ha! When you break up someone’s marriage, destroy a family, including her own……. she should be in rehab!
    Your getting what you deserve LR if you ask me.

    I’ve come to realize the hard way that marriage is for morons. A couple years ago, I wouldn’t have agreed with what she did, but right now I couldn’t care less. Never forget this. Life is a Junior High. Everybody cheats. Weather mentally or psychically, EVERYBODY DOES. There are many hypocrites out there. Enjoy life, cheat on your wife/husband when you can get away with it, and forget about what others think when you get caught. We are all humans and will never change. We have only a few thousand seconds left to live.

    You can be faithful all your life only to find out one day that your church going spouse has been doing you good behind your back. Don’t waste your life, CHEAT. If you think your spouse is this saint, I dare you to check their Facebook, emails or follow them and you’ll be shocked. We are all made to cheat. Some hide it really well.

    I know many of you will be up in arms over my post. You are the ones who really worry me as you are most likely being cheated on at this very moment. If you think your spouse would never do that to you, I’m going to end this post with one question for you, WOULD YOU BET YOUR LIFE ON THAT?

    You all have a good day.
