LeAnn Rimes Rehab: “I’ve Been In Therapy My Whole Life”

LeAnn Rimes recently opened up to Katie Couric about her month-long stint in rehab for stress and anxiety, saying she has sought counseling for years but never really went public with it.

“I’ve been in therapy my whole life,” the Grammy winner explained. “I like going. I like being able to have that third-party input and someone to listen that has nothing to do with your life. Everyone has an opinion of how I am and how I should be, and now I’m focusing on how I want to be.”

The 30-year old country singer checked into therapy after she was the victim of some online bullying; her husband, Eddie Cibrian, was married when they met on the set of a film, and his ex-wife’s friends didn’t take kindly to LeAnn entering the picture.

“I think it’s really hard to deal with Twitter and Facebook,” the singer said. “And it’s hard to take it day after day of reading and seeing things that someone you don’t even know says about you. As much as you said you don’t want it to penetrate, it does, because you’re human.”

Rimes says she feels like she’s been given a chance to start over, however, and is happy to be moving on. Her interview with Katie Couric on “All Access Nashville” airs Friday, October 26th at 9 p.m.

    Well boo hoo! Are we supposed to feel sorry for a skank that broke up another person’s marriage? It’s too bad there are so many people who will wring their hands and gnash their teeth feeling sorry for her. She is a low life (as is her husband.) As far as I’m concerned she is a skank like Tori Spelling who broke up her present husband marriage (in which there were children involved.) I don’t care how many kids she decides to squeeze out to keep this husband they do provide instant forgiveness or class.

    They are both hos’, excuse me untalented hos’ and especially Tori Spelling who had a father hire her for so many of his movies. They’re both skanks and deserve whatever comes their way.

    Hang in there LeeAnn! As for starting over, get used to it because as a woman in this life you will start over many, many times. You’re only 30 and have accomplished so much. Stop being so hard on yourself.

    I pray every day that LeAnn is doing well and that she is able to shake the dust from her feet (Matthew 10:14) when dealing with those who do nothing but put down her every move. (bowing my head).

    God bless you and her always!

    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.
