It wasn't an eating disorder, she says, just a lot of stress.
Country star Leann Rimes has never been one to shy away from admitting her problems, but she insists that an eating disorder isn’t among them. The “How Do I Live” singer has come under a lot of scrutiny lately for her thinning physique. A lot of publications have speculated that Rimes is anorexic, but she maintains that she shed the pounds naturally, because of all the stress of her recent past.
"People said I was [anorexic], but I didn't have a problem with eating, as I ate a ton all the time - I could eat my husband under the table!" she tells the Daily Mail. "But I was going through a time when I just wasn't sleeping -- my mind wouldn't shut off and my heart was breaking." Rimes is referring to a time two years ago, when she was in an affair with now-husband Eddie Cibrian. The two met on the set of Northern Lights in 2009 and, at the time, both were still married – Rimes to dancer Dean Sheremet and Cibrian to future Real Housewife Brandi Glanville.
Rimes describes the period after their affair as a "turbulent" one. "To say I've been on several roller coasters is an understatement," she admits to the Daily Mail. According to her own words, she is in a much healthier place now though. So maybe this means that we’ll see the singer put on a few pounds soon.

LeAnn Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian have splashed out new $3 million home
No wonder Leann Rimes is keeping cool in the whole ugly spat between her and Brandy – she’s just splashed out $3 million on a happening pad so that she and her husband (Brandy’s ex-husband) Eddie Cibrian can get back and chill out after a hard day’s slagging off.
The New York Daily News just reported that the latest twist to the tale, which has seen everything from accusations of mental instability, to questions over who should be looking Eddie’s kids, saw Brandy tell the Howard Stern Show that Cibrian was only with Rimes for her money. Well, when you hear about this house you’d sure suggest that money was one of the reasons that Rimes was such a draw to him. It’s mahoosive. Located in Hidden Hills, Los Angeles, the new pad stretches over 2.2 acres of land, but was an absolute, um, snip at £3 million, with the original asking price thought to be getting up towards $5.75 million. The house itself offers around 8,600 square feet of living space, with a four-car garage, BBQ area and outdoor swimming pool also on the grounds.
The Spanish-style mansion has a ridiculous six bedrooms and nine bathrooms, as well as a central staircase, and wooden beams to give the house a rustic look - and that’s not all. As well as the main living quarters, the grounds also have an outdoor dining area, a guest house (!). It sounds amazing to us, though we can predict one guest who won’t be ever welcome.
Tributes have poured in from the world of country music after the shocking news emerged that troubled country star Mindy McCready allegedly took her own life in her home yesterday (February 17, 2013). Sadly McCready never fully capitalized on her twice platinum selling debut album Ten Thousand Angels, released in 1996 when she was just 20, and in an all-too-familiar tragic tale, her life was eventually over taken by legal issues and substance problems.
Nevertheless her music, including five studio albums, inspired many who’ve gone on to make waves in the genre, and that was replicated in the messages that came out on Twitter in wake of the news of her death. “Just heard about Mindy McCready. My thoughts and prayers are with her 2 boys and her family” wrote the multiple award-winning Jason Aldean, whilst American Idol alumni Carried Underwood added “I grew up listening to Mindy McCready...so sad for her family tonight. Many prayers are going out to them...”
Other who came forward in homage to the late singer included Leann Rimes, who wrote “My heart goes out to Mindy McCready's family. I knew her well. It's a horribly [sic] tragedy. May peace be with her son's.” Those who were big at the time of her own height of fame chipped in too, with Wynonna Judd writing “Oh my! Mindy. Dear sweet girl. This is so sad. It just breaks my heart what addiction continues to take from this life.” McCready was 37 years old at the time of her death; just last month her boyfriend had died of a suspected suicide.
Leann Rimes sued her dentist, after claiming that his below-par dental work has left her with “permanent cosmetic deficiency” and physical pain. She has also claimed that she was left unable to sing (and therefore earn money) as a result of the dentistry. omg! obtained a copy of the lawsuit and report that Rimes is now suing the dentist for his work. She has often complained about her teeth and dental woes on her Twitter page in the past.
LeAnn claims that she has had to undergo nine root canal operations, bone grafting, a temporary bridge and physical therapy, all in order to deal with the dentist’s poor workmanship. In addition to suffering that trauma, she also claims that it left her unable to sing, so she’s seeking a pay out for loss of earnings, past and future. The 30 year-old is booked to appear at the C2C: Country to Country festival in London, in March, 2013.

Brandi Glanville has vehemently denied a report that she cheated on ex-husband Eddie Cibrian before his affair with country singer and actress Leann Rimes. US Weekly magazine quotes several sources as saying Glanville, 40, cheated on the 39-year-old actor several times during their eight-year marriage. "Brandi loves to play the victim, but she doesn't tell the whole story," the magazine said, quoting one source.
Brandi- one of the stars of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and author of the new book Drinking & Tweeting - took to Twitter on Tuesday (February 5, 2013) to deny the report. "Apparently I cheated on eddie a few times with some Hot guys! Wow! Grasping at straws 4 yrs later a week before book is out #WISHIHAD watev," she wrote. She also took aim at one source who claimed she had sex with another man shortly after giving birth to her second son. "I had the baby blues after Jake was born I wasn't even hav n sex with EC let alone anyone else," she said, adding, "Such BS but I kind of want to buy the mag now."
In one of the biggest celebrity stories of that year, Rimes, 30, had a very public affair with Cibrian while he was married to Glanville. Both divorced their then-spouses and married each other. Glanville and Rimes have been involved in a spiky Twitter spat for over a year.

We’re not used to seeing country starlets going into the classic Spears/Lohan type tailspin, but Leann Rimes’s odd performance on the X Factor on Wednesday was one instance where the clean cut, all American stereotype didn’t seem to apply.
The Huffington Post called the performance “awkward” and speculation has arisen online that the singer was drunk when she took the stage alongside 13-year-old contestant Carly Rose Soneclar.
Rimes’s lawyer, Larry Stein, has adamantly denied the rumors and attributed the country star’s unusual performance to the fact that she was singing alongside an inexperienced contestant. "LeAnn was not performing the way she would normally perform, because she was on stage with a young girl," Stein commented for TMZ. Regarding the speculation that LeAnn was drunk on stage, he said: "There have been a lot of untrue things said by others and it feeds into this sort of thing." Of course, there could have been a number of factors feeding into the shaky display on Wednesday. According to sources, the singer hasn’t had it easy lately. She has been treated for stress and anxiety during the summer and, a day before her X Factor performance, told Jay Leno that she was battling a cold. Whatever the reason, we wish Ms Rimes good luck with her recovery.
It's been a tough time for Leann Rimes recently; she's been accused of inadvertently poisoning a child with a laxative, and attending rehab sessions. So a performance on one of the most-watched talent shows around was the perfect idea to relieve the stress. Oh, no.
Considering how strange she was on stage, fans have been suggesting that her rehab stint was less than successful, and that she was in fact drunk during the performance. This, however, is something Larry Stein - Rimes' lawyer - denies vehemently. "LeAnn was not performing the way she would normally perform, because she was on stage with a young girl," Larry Stein told celeb gossip site, TMZ. "There have been a lot of untrue things said by others and it feeds into this sort of thing."
On Tuesday, LeAnn told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show her decision enter rehab came when she decided to make a change on her 30th birthday. "God, the last four years have been super compressed with anxiety," she said. "I didn't know how to deal with it all."
Brandi Glanville has been in the news recently for another spat with country pop singer Leann Rimes, but something altogether more serious has come to light with the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star telling In Touch magazine that she is to have surgery this week to remove a tumor on her breast.
Glanville has apparently not been feeling well for months and was eventually told by doctors that it was a result of a tumor growing in her breast; thankfully for the star, further tests revealed that the lump was not cancerous and this can be removed relatively straight forwardly. "I am having surgery this week and am relieved it’s going to be over with,” Brandi told the publication. "It's a blessing the tumor is non-cancerous.” She added “I'm anxious about the recovery but have great friends who will be playing nurse. I'm ready to get it over with and feel better."
All of this has come on top of a tough couple of weeks for Glanville, who became embroiled in a widely reported Twitter spat with Rimes after claiming that her nine year-old son Mason became ill after eating one of the “unstable” singer’s laxative pills. This caused to Rimes to hit back with her own accusations about Glanville’s state to be a mother. To say the pair have history is an understatement; Rimes had an affair with Glanville’s then-husband and father of her two children, Eddie Cibrian, causing him to eventually marry her.
Brandi Glanville has revealed that she is to receive surgery after doctors found a tumor on her breast during a routine check earlier this week.
The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star will go under the knife to remove the tumor, which fortunately in benign and offers little threat of being cancerous. The reality star revealed the news during an interview with In Touch magazine on Saturday (Dec 8), telling the mag that she had felt unwell for some time before visiting doctors. After her inspection doctors then found that sickness was a result of the tumor, with a surgery date to remove it immediately scheduled following the discovery.
She told the magazine, "I am having surgery this week and am relieved it’s going to be over with...It's a blessing the tumor is non-cancerous"

Allegedly, Rimes has an eating disorder, which means she carries at least one laxative around in her purse at all times. Misconstruing this for a piece of candy, Glanville claims, Mason ate one and fell ill. "I, unfortunately, don't find her to be stable," Glanville said, "and I don't want her around my kids when Eddie's not there -- or at least the nanny, his parents, someone. Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le's candies and got extremely ill. And Le's candies are laxatives. It was a big fucking deal for me, and I lost my mind. She has one in every purse. Mason found on on the floor and thought it was a Skittle! They don't keep sugar in the house. He thought he finally found candy."
Rimes, though, is not going down without a fight, and has issued a scathing retort, according to ABC News. "There is only one person constantly speaking to the press and that is Brandi. Why do you think that is? Her whole show is based on controversy, drama and publicity," her rep, Marcel Pariseau said. "She is the only one to gain by spewing forth inaccuracies, rants and half-truths. It's time for people to see it for what this really is -- she has a book and show to promote and sell."
The spat kicked off after Rimes referred to Glanville’s children Mason, 9, and Jake, 5, as “my boys” on Twitter. They aren’t, but the father of them is Rimes’ ex-husband Eddie Cibrian. This incensed Glanville, and she hit back with her own comments on Rimes, suggesting that Mason had gotten sick after ingesting laxatives belonging to the country pop singer. Glanville had called Rimes “unstable” and “unhealthy” in the same interview, given to US Weekly, and Rimes wasn’t having any of it.
A statement released to ABC in rebuttal said: “There is only one person constantly speaking to the press and that is Brandi. Why do you think that is? Her whole show is based on controversy, drama and publicity”. Continuing the statement said of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star: “She is the only one to gain by spewing forth inaccuracies, rants and half-truths. It’s time for people to see it for what this really is — she has a book and show to promote and sell.”

Leann Rimes was forced to postpone a show on Friday after suffering from a "massive infection." The country star was eventually forced to visit ER early on Sunday as a result of what she called "dental issues."
The singer, who recently completed a 30-day stint in rehab to deal with stress and anxiety, told Twitter followers that she was "under anesthesia and a massive infection," adding, "I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat :( NOT a good feeling when I am getting on a plane. For all my fans at Wendover last night, the show will be rescheduled, not a canceled show. WORST way ever to kick off a tour." Rimes managed to perform at the Autry Museum at Griffith Park in Los Angeles on Saturday evening, though visited ER at 3am on Sunday, blogging, "Feeling much better now, thanks to my husband's best friend who's an ER doc. I've been living in a dental nightmare for 10 months. I'm getting back on track though, I hope. I've had too many detours this year due to dental issues. I'm finally in great hands and being well taken care of. Last night was wonderful, performing to help raise money for the Autry Museum and earlier in the day performing a few songs to help raise money for the cats and dogs at living-free.org Needless to say, I'm resting today."
Though Rimes mentioned husband Eddie Cibrian in her post, E! Online reports that the 39-year-old was spotted out in Los Angeles on Monday, minus his wedding ring. Oh Oh.
