LeAnn Rimes: Bikini Bod for 'Shape' Magazine Cover!

LeAnn Rimes: Bikini Bod for 'Shape' Magazine Cover!

LeAnn Rimes shows off her bikini body on the cover of Shape magazine’s October 2010 issue!

Here’s what the 28-year-old singer had to share:

On how her working out has impacted her body: “I feel like my body is changing and that I’m growing up into a woman. I probably weigh about 6 pounds more than when I shot that cover, but my body fat is the lowest it’s ever been. I’ve gained a lot of muscle, and I feel like I have more curves too. My butt – well, I’ve always had a butt – but now I definitely have a butt, which I love. I’ve taken up weight training three or four times a week, and I do a lot of squats. I’ve also been doing more cardio, even though I absolutely despise it. I try to get in a good 20 to 25 minutes before I do anything else; if I don’t do it first, it won’t happen.”

On exercising to help her cope with her stressful year: “Going to the gym and punching out some of my aggression on a pair of mitts has been a lifesaver. Sometimes I felt so depressed I didn’t want to get out of bed, so just getting to the gym-even for a few minutes-was a big accomplishment. It really did make me feel better and kind of saved me. It gave me a bit of sanity. Even now, on days when I’m really frustrated, I’ll walk into the gym and say to my trainer, ‘We’re boxing today. For an hour. I need to hit things.’”

On working out with beau Eddie Cibrian: “We go to the same gym, and sometimes we take group-cycling classes together, but when it comes to weight training, we pretty much do our own thing. He’s going to kill me for saying this, but when I ask him to work out with me, he always says no. And when I ask why, he says, ‘Because your workouts are too hard.’ And he’s right: I’m serious about my exercise. I don’t just doodle around. I see people at the gym talking on their cell phones. If they think their bodies are really going to change…I mean, you’ve got to put in the effort!”

On criticism about leaving Dean Sheremet for Eddie: My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us. We got married so young: I was 19 and he was 21, so as we got older, we grew apart. I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right. I truly believe there are lessons in it for me to learn. Cultivating strength from rough situations is the most important thing. After going through this, I know I can face anything.”

Shape magazine issued an apology, as obtained by TooFab, to some readers who complained that LeAnn should not be on the cover as it glorified “husband-stealing.”

    Nothing will ever change the fact that you cheated on your husband. No one will ever forget it. You will always be a homewrecker.

  • blair

    Thanks JJ for proving my point on the other thread…….ugly pic, ugly face, squinty eyes!

  • yup.

    ugly girl, inside and out, she doesn’t belong on a magazine cover other than the cheapest tabloid.

  • barbie

    Good interview. Her answers are very intelligent.

  • blair

    “When I ask him (EC) to work out with me he always says no”……of course he does…’s the only time he can pick up good looking women!


    :S ugly! not even with photoshop she looks pretty! damn!

  • Blake

    S K A N K.

  • Bernard Tilman

    LeAnn Rimes is so beautiful and curvaceous. This incredibly gorgeous young woman is amazing. She is really stunning.

  • Kanye

    Btich sounds really full of herself. Whatever. The tranny will now always be known as a homewrecking tramp.

    Out of all the gorgeous women in the world Eddie could’ve had an affair with, he chose THIS one?! Ew.

  • Channy

    Nice body, must have really wanted to show it allll off to cheat on her husband S K A N K!! Ugly face too
    Oh yeah! “America’s sweetheart” ??? uhh… when did anyone but her claim that? I don’t think I’ve ever connected her to that

  • Kanye

    @Bernard Tilman: LeAnn, is that you? Get the hell off the computer and quit Googling your own name, bitch! “Gorgeous” my a s s.

  • MC3

    What a self-centered butch looking tramp. “After going through this, I”, don’t you mean what YOU CHOSE to subject others to. Of course you and your spouse are going to grow apart when you’re repeatedly cheating on him and lying to him!

  • ag

    Get ready for 50 more “hater” posts in a row… by the same few people.

  • Oh please

    She admits what she did was wrong. Everyone deserves a second chance plus eddie ciboria will cheat on her soon enough . Another lesson learned

  • she looks hot!!

    She looks amazing- she should be showing it off more.

  • gia

    Good for you leann, for saying “I don’t think the way I did it was right.” Now some of the obsessed lunatic haters can move on with their lives.

  • Ronnie

    That’s the ugliest cover ever of that magazine. I wonder if she paid them to promote her dismal album. Barnes should put that issue side by side with Reptiles and Horse Illustrated magazines.


    why does she need to go to the gym to punch out her aggression?? Last I checked she was sitting pretty with someone else’s husband…

  • slambang

    Dang, she’s one fugly homewrecker.

  • John Doe

    Im sorry, but what is there to explain lady, you dialed another guys telephonepole.

  • rubyc

    Compare her cover with Kate Gosslin’s People Magazine cover. The mother of eight is the runaway winner. Leann’s torso is mannish and her face is just hideous.

  • Robocup

    Is that the Halloween issue? It’s freakin’ scary!!!

  • Walker

    The only time this chick was depressed was when Eddie ran back to his wife and she had to stalk him. She’s sooooo self absorbed. Talking this crap about her problems after the pain she’s caused is sickening.

  • Becky

    She looks like one of those Russian spear chuckers.

  • JuBEE


  • carla in dallas

    she will never be anything more that white trash from garland, tx to me.

  • offtheproperty

    She was not happy in her marriage. She saw the chance to be in love and she took it, apologizing sincerely to those who got hurt. She’s young and extremely successful. God Bless her.

  • iN tHE KNOW


  • MaryAnn

    Poor sweet little LeAnn. How depressed can one be when from the very first day she pranced around LA making sure any photog within a mile knew where she was. She’s nothing but a liar and her brain-dead fans eat it up with a spoon. Thank God there are not enough of these people to keep this deluded person in the spot light much longer…well, the tabs know she’s good for a laugh.

  • @offtheproperty

    You’re one of her PR people because Rimes never appologized to anybody in saying she has “no regrets”. She said she was sorry people got hurt as if she was not the cause of their pain. LeAnn is a totally selfish nut and anyone who supports her totally lacks any sense of morality.

  • just sayin’

    I guess it is pretty stressful cheating on your husband, being a skank and being a homewrecker. She is actually scary looking.

  • Candy

    @Channy: I thought the exact same thing when I read that line.

  • Lime in Da Coconut

    Nice body ,but you can’t diet ugly.

  • Liv

    “After going through this I know I can face anything.”

    Riiight. I bet it’s so hard to be her, and not you know, the people she and her fame-ho bf screwed over.

  • Alex

    Wow. I don’t much know or like the woman either, and I think she’s incredibly unattractive… but the reality is people in life make mistakes. We’re human. I’m not condoning cheating on a spouse, but things happen and everyone’s guilty of something.

    Live and let live!

  • rubyc

    TRUTH: She has an album coming up and the Shape magazine cover is a publicity ploy to drum up interest but more so TO REGAIN SYMPATHY AFTER HER ADULTEROUS ROMP.
    Do I think she’s really sorry for all that she did and is doing? NOT EVEN REMOTELY. SHE IS THICK FACED.
    Do I think that the public can easily forget what she did? NO. I BELIEVE THAT THE PUBLIC IS WISER THAN THIS. THE PUBLIC CAN DISCERN WHAT SHE TRULY IS THAT HER P.R. MACHINE TRIES TO DESPERATELY COVER UP. GOOD TRY BUT DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE DECENT-THINKING PUBLIC. I believe that anyone who supports the advancement of family and preservation of marriage can see through this veil of deceit. No one can just wreck a home and expect to get rewarded and to continue as if nothing happened. There is a wife scorned and there are two children scarred for life!!!! Maybe in the long future, when PEOPLE SEE the change in heart. BUT NOT SO SOON!!! People don’t forget that easily!!!!

  • Marieme

    First of all screw SELF for having this ska nk on the cover. Can hardly think of anyone more worthless. The upside is she looks as awful as ever. Score zero for her vanity! And speaking of ego, don’t you just love how everything is about HER? Yes! No doubt ALL this pain and reckless behavior was fine because it served her so well. Because what matters is SHE has grown so much from it. Sniff-sniff. The sun has oven-fried the brain inside her balding head. Suck it Skeeze-Ann.

  • @rubyc

    Extremely well put. I might add that if God will not forgive an unrepentent heart, why should we? This has not been just about cheating and divorce. This is about LeAnn who for years now has taken pleasure in the pain of innocent people and who has used this digusting behavior to promote herself.

  • Marieme

    TOTALLY rubyc #36!

    As much as she pretends not to pay attention or care she is feeling the sting from all the backlash – as she should. The mere fact she can’t keep her mouth shut on twitter and puts so much energy into this facade of being so perfect only reveals her insecurities. If someone was TRULY regretful and at peace they wouldn’t waste a second defending themselves, seeking out the media or twittering all the time. Nope. They would just be quietly living their lives and trying to respect the people they’ve hurt by SHUTTING UP. Not to mention trying to protect the children. She’s a true blue idiot. Both of them.

  • yo mutha

    she got depressed for what she’s done? she should be! for if you wreck a home, the guilt that comes with it will wreck you seven times more.

  • http://deleted lol

    wonder why leann never tweeted about jake’s stitches…i thought everything was fine and dandy when the boys were on the tour bus..just proves most of the stuff leann tweets are lies..

  • betty

    If Leann spent time working on her character as she does her body she would not have to be defending herself against detractors. The choices you make when you are 19 should be different at 28. Leann knew what she was doing when she got involved with a married man with children and so did he. Leann plotted, schemed and manipulated her way into Eddies life. Being the womanizer he is that wasn’t hard. Now the situation is reversed and she finds herself in the position the wife had and she knows the same thing can happen to her that is why she is so insecure and clingy. Getting a man and keeping a man is different especially when you had no scruples in “winning” him. Thats why her jealousy of Brandi is still apparent tweeting every detail about Brandis kids only shows her vindictiveness.

  • http://deleted lol

    isnt it funny that leann had enough time to tweet about the kid being in the ER but neither eddie or her had time to call the MOM

  • gillian


  • chloe

    Oh please…. stop with the “Leanne is a homewrecker” crap. You CAN’T wreck somones marriage IF it’s strong. eddie WANTED OUT , period. She did not drag him away from Brandi he willingly ran to Leanne.

    She admitted she went about getting out of her marriage the wrong way and we all know eddie did too. But please to act like she swooped in and wrecked a good marriage is just rediculous.

    aside from that…. the pictures not that bad. She looks better than half the women I see everyday walking around a good 25 lbs. overweight trying to cram themselves into skinny jeans. Atleast she’s trying !

  • blair

    After going through this, I know I can face anything”….except maybe a mirror!

  • @lol

    Thanks for the info on the video and the kids injuries. You are absolutely 100% correct. Eddie and LeAnn don’t know what parenting is because neither of them have done it before and neither of them had good parents.

  • Debra

    If that is Leann over there on Eonline commenting on the article…she needs help

    she says shes upset about the article and that it’s 90% made up…the only thing she says is that the boy slipped on water instead of oil!!! big deal

    she didn’t address the fact that she and the dirtbag dad didn’t call the MOTHER of the kids at all…she just got a text AFTER the fact….just when I thought these two couldn’t get any lower….

    she had time to tweet to everyone about the accident but not let the MOTHER know…they are both poor excuses for human beings…there is no excuse for this
