Rimes Confused By Shape Magazine Fuss

Country star LEANN RIMES has promised fans she'll "get to the bottom" of her new Shape magazine controversy after editor-in-chief VALERIE LATONA apologised to readers for putting the singer on the cover of the fitness magazine and then backtracked.
Latona called Rimes' October (10) cover "a terrible mistake" in an email to readers who had complained about the spread, insisting it was wrong to salute someone whose affair with actor Eddie Cibrian had led to the break-up of his marriage.
The editor explained that putting Rimes on the cover was "not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal, but to show (through her story) how we all are human."
Then, on Friday (29Oct10), she was quoted in USA Today newspaper as saying, "I stand by the fact that LeAnn's story is compelling - and her courage and strength in the face of so much adversity is compelling. I wrote to those women apologising that our cover choice did not make them happy, as I have done for other cover stars in the past."
But the explanation has only added to the fuss, as far as Rimes herself is concerned.
In a tweet to fans on Friday, the singer wrote, "I'm getting to the bottom of this... Shape is throwing me a party next week as a thank you and a congrats for being on their cover for the third time. I find this very contradictory."
She then posted the invitation for the cocktail reception, which will take place at the Trousdale club in West Hollywood on 4 November (10).

How stupid can you be LeAnn not to know why no one wants to see your sorry ass or hear you sing. You are a whore that should have left a married man alone. No respect for you or Eddie. I will not watch any movie or show he is in. Glad his TV show kicked his sorry ass off. Better show now.
