    So Speak Now is upset because we would dare post info that would contradict the fluff that JJ and Dailymail writes?

    1) This is from Popsugar:

    Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have been the reigning King and Queen of ridiculously staged photo ops for the past few years, though there may be some new competition on the scene. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian seem to share Heidi and Spencer’s flair for drama, posing for a serious engagement shoot and silly bikini beach strolls. Also like Heidi and Spencer, LeAnn and Eddie just love to share PDA in some of the most unusual places. Considering all of LeAnn and Eddie’s recent camera time, we’d like to know what you think — are LeAnn and Eddie the new Heidi and Spencer

    ________________________________________
    2) From Hollyscoop:

    LeAnn gets our #1 pick because nobody likes a homewrecker. She basically flaunted her affair with Eddie Cibrian for everyone to see, and then cried because everyone hates her now.

    Last year at this time, Leann and her ex Dean Sheremet decided to divorce. It wasn’t long before LeAnn moved right in with Eddie. They pose for the paps like it’s going out of style, and expect everyone to think they’re adorable just because they’re in love.

    We understand that sometimes the love fizzles in a marriage, and you can even start developing feelings for someone else. But the way she went about the whole thing is just despicable. You’re naughty to the max, LeAnn, and deserve nothing but coal in your stocking this year! “

    1)This is from Politico :

    GOP rookies’ LeAnn Rimes fundraiser cost nearly $80K

    Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) caught lots of flak earlier this year for hosting a swank, rock ‘n’ roll fundraiser months after his freshman class was swept to Washington after promising a renewed commitment to frugality and economic restraint.

    And all that ire was before the nearly $80,000 in expenses was disclosed.

    The night before lawmakers were sworn in, the first-term congressman’s political action committee appears to have doled out $25,000 to have LeAnn Rimes perform in Washington at the W Hotel for an event that raised eyebrows in both Republican and Democratic circles.

    The PAC paid the W Hotel $22,000 for catering and lights, and audio services ran up a $5,000 tab. It also paid $10,000 for “floral expense and event design.”

    It was a particularly bizarre event, even by Washington standards. Denham invited the media to the W Hotel before the event, where he vowed that “we’re conservatives but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun.”

    “Obviously this isn’t just about raising money, this is about having a good time,” Denham said to reporters before the fundraiser. “We have a great entertainer here in Grammy Award-winner LeAnn Rimes. And we’re excited about that, and excited about the event tonight.” Reporters were not permitted to attend the fundraiser itself.

    The money that the PAC raised hardly covered the cost of the event — it took in $85,000. The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians donated $50,000 to the committee, and the Morongo Band of Mission Indians Native donated $25,000. Blue Shield of California’s PAC chipped in $5,000 and the American Association of Clinical Urologists and a Tennessee-based donor gave $2,500 each.

    Although Denham was the face of the event, the political action committee raises money for a slew of first-term Republicans, including Reps. Scott DesJarlais (Tenn.), Robert Dold (Ill.), Renee Ellmers (N.C.), Jeff Landry (La.), Tom Marino (Pa.), Tom Reed (N.Y.), David Rivera (Fla.), Jon Runyan (N.J.), Steve Southerland (Fla.), Marlin Stutzman (Ind.) and Kevin Yoder (Kan.).

    GOP spent $80,000 on LeAnn Rimes event

    It cost $80,000 to put on a lavish fundraiser this month that featured country singer LeAnn Rimes and was meant to benefit a crew of freshman Republicans, including U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers of Dunn.

    Politico, a Capitol Hill newspaper, reported today that the event took in $85,000, barely enough to cover its cost. The fundraiser took place the evening before the new Congress was sworn in, and Politico had reported at the time that it raised eyebrows among establishment GOP lawmakers.

    The event was hosted by freshman U.S. Rep. Jeff Denham of California and was for a PAC that benefits a dozen new members, including Ellmers. She attended the event with her husband.

    According to today’s report, it cost $25,000 to have Rimes perform. Other expenses included $22,000 to the W Hotel for catering and lights, and $10,000 for floral arrangements and event design.

    The famewores strike again, with not one photo-op but TWO. I thought that JJ would have some respect for BG and her kids, since everyone knows that EC is cheating his kids out of their child support by even being on that trip. Oh well, Leann must be paying JJ very well.

    Wow, another photo-op bought and paid for by LEANN RIMES. Once again JJ has mistitled this STAGED photo-op.

    It should be Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian: Instead of paying his child support and alimony, the famewhore Eddie Cibrian, goes snowboarding and snuggles with LR, the same way he did with his wife when he was cheating on her.

    By posting these photos of LR and EC is JJ saying that they support EC as he robs his kids of child support? You do realize that he still hasn’t paid his child support yet right?

    Now once again, JJ, didn’t we see EC and LR cuddling with their spouses? So if they were not sincere when they were cuddling with their spouse, then please explain why you seem to think that they are sincere now? So EC is cheating on Leann.

    So once again, how come JJ won’t post ANY negative stories about LR and EC?

  • Koree

    I believe everyone deserves to be happy but these two just piss me off everytime I see them

  • gwen

    Because JJ supports cheating kids out of their child support and is doing such a great job at documenting how EC isn’t financially suffering, I thought I would post this.

    This is from the Orange County Divorce Lawyer Blog:

    Eddie Cibrian cuts Child Support to Ex, then buys $85K engagement ring for LeAnn Rimes

    If you are involved in any family law matter, whether it be a divorce or a child support issue, do not do anything to undermine your positions in court. Case in point: Eddie Cibrian purportedly cut his child support payments to his ex-wife then subsequently purchased an $85,000 engagement ring for his fiance, LeAnn Rimes. Not exactly the smartest thing to do if you are involved in a pending divorce case. This is all ammunition that Cibrian’s ex could use in a court of law.

    As I have blogged in the past, the determination of child support consists of several factors. The main factors include gross income of the parties, timeshare that the noncustodial parent has of the child, household deductions, among other factors. Cibrian purportedly sought to lower his child support payments because of the bad economy and his alleged claims that he had little work. If Cibrian is making this claim in court, its not a very wise decision to turn around and spend $85,000 on an engagement ring. That’s $85,000 that could go to your kids expenses or college education! This is definitely something that Cibrian’s ex could use to attack his credibility. This shows that Cibrian is not considering the financial welfare of his kids but that he finds his fiance of more importance. This is not a good way to make a favorable impression with the courts.

    I’ll give Cibrian the benefit of the doubt that his fiance is a country star the news of their engagement was all over the news. Notwithstanding, $85K is still a huge amount of money. If Cibrian is trying to feign poverty, its not working.

    If you are involved in a divorce or child support matter and need assistance, contact an Orange County child support lawyer for more information.

    Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian

    Devilish Deeds: Homewrecking, cheating on spouses, flaunting their lust.

    It’s hard to fault two people who claim they’re madly in love, but when there are spouses and children involved, it seems selfishly evil to be unfaithful just because you have the hots for someone else.

    From showbiz Tonight(LR publicly congratulating her ex)

    All right. Jessica Simpson not the only celebrity who is celebrating an engagement. LeAnn Rimes took time to congratulate her ex-husband, Dean Sheremet, in his engagement.

    Listen to what LeAnn wrote on her Twitter page, “Congrats to @deansheremet and @sarah_silver on your engagement. A little birdie told me the happy news last night. Wishes for a life full of happiness.”

    And just in case you are questioning her sincerity, she also added, “My congrats is from my heart. Sorry if you don`t understand it. I do not need the publicity. I get plenty. Please stop passing judgment.”

    OK. No judgment here but do I have to wonder why, oh, why, if there is nothing being done for publicity here would she choose to congratulate him on Twitter?

    LAWRENCE: Thank you.

    HAMMER: Now, Kelli, I know you talked to Dean Sheremet. What did he say?

    ZINK: Listen, I asked Dean, “How do you feel about this girl who cheated on you – you guys don`t even talk – congratulating you publicly, like she`s, “I`m the good guy.” I am judging, by the way.

    And he said, you know, “It`s a well wish. All I can do is say thank you for your well wishes and be the bigger person.” And that`s what he`s been throughout the entire thing.

    But LeAnn Rimes needs to freeze her Twitter account. Her PR person needs to pull it from her, change the password and that`s that.

    HAMMER: Yes. I mean, the idea, if she needs to rehabilitate her image, which was obviously hurt when she cheated on Dean Sheremet, she should just stop tweeting and talking publicly about this stuff.

    From showbiz tonight(rockers and shockers):
    _______________________________________
    HAMMER: And the third rocker shocker, LeAnn Rimes.

    PIAZZA: Not only did she over-share, but she upset a lot of people in the process when she talked to Robin Roberts about her affair with Eddie Cibrian when the two of them were still married to other people.

    HAMMER: Rimes, who spent months being slammed as a home wrecker, didn`t do herself any favors when she and Cibrian did a shockingly unapologetic interview with ABC`s Robin Roberts.

    LEANN RIMES, SINGER: You had two couples whose marriages didn`t work, who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love.

    PIAZZA: She obviously had no idea that she was coming across as a totally heartless wench.

    ANDERSON: Yes. OK. We did also get a ton of Facebook comments about none other than LeAnn Rimes. I want to take another look at that ABC interview where LeAnn equated her affair with Eddie Cibrian to so many other people out there unhappy in their marriages. Watch.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    RIMES: It happens every day to so many people. You had two couples whose marriages didn`t work, who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love. And never, ever was I thinking of hurting someone.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    ANDERSON: Really? Tanika, she seems so blase about the whole thing in that interview.

    RAY: Yes.

    ANDERSON: And she never apologized for what she did. She just tried to justify it. Really, do you think that`s what ticked people off the most?

    RAY: I do, but this is what happens with people when they want to justify it for themselves and they want to soothe their own guilt. They find any way they can to make it sound OK. And I think that`s what we`re dealing with right here.

    Remember, she`s really young. She was emancipated from her parents really young. She married at a very, very young age. So I think her sensitivity chip is a little off kilter.

    And as far as we`re all concerned, it looks gross from our perspective. We don`t know what position their marriages were in when they found each other. And I`m such a fan of love. If you can find it, go for it. Just unfortunately, people got hurt in the long run. And I think she`s a little off (INAUDIBLE).

    ANDERSON: It was a terrible way to do it. Now, our SHOWBIZ TONIGHT Facebook wall exploded with comments about LeAnn.

    Grace M. wrote this on our wall, “There is no defending having an affair with a married man especially when she is married, too. Shame on her. I thought she was better than that.”

    I think what LeAnn did was the most shocking out of all of these. But Eugene, to the SHOWBIZ Flashpoint, which rocker shocked you the most?

    RAMIREZ: I`ve got to agree with LeAnn Rimes. You know, this is a girl who is as American as apple pie, a country music star.

    RAY: Absolutely.

    RAMIREZ: She`s blond. She`s pretty. She`s America`s sweetheart. And not only is she unfaithful, but she`s a home wrecker.

    And wait, there`s more. Then she`s indiscreet about it. And you know that if you`re a good American girl, you have to be discreet about your indiscretions. She definitely was not. To go on “Shape” magazine – to go on “Shape” magazine and go ahead and say – call yourself a husband stealer, what are you thinking? This is definitely the most shocking rocker of them all right here.

    ANDERSON: Tanika, which rocker shocked you the most? Quickly.

    RAY: One hundred percent definitely LeAnn Rimes. Here`s the thing – she`s got that hot man now, so she`s like screw everybody else out there. I`ve got myself a hottie.

    ANDERSON: As we were watching, Tanika kept saying, “Well, he is pretty hot.” All right. Eugene Ramirez, Tanika Ray, thank you both.

    From showbiz tonight ( why Leann cheated):

    BROOKE ANDERSON, HLN CO-HOST: Hi there, everyone. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today. Why Leann cheated.

    HAMMER: It`s pretty amazing. And what you`re about to hear may be one of the most blunt, honest and, quite frankly, emotional star cheating confessions ever. For the very first time, Leann Rimes is explaining today why she cheated on her husband and left him for her TV movie co-star.

    In a brand-new interview just revealed today, the country music superstar who once was considered America`s sweetheart makes incredible revelations that like it or not, I think a lot of married and divorced couples will identify with.

    But SHOWBIZ TONIGHT has got to ask, should we now have sympathy for Leann?

    With me in New York is Sunny Hostin, who is a contributor, legally speaking on “In Session” on our sister network TruTV. In Hollywood, Jim Moret, is the chief correspondent for “Inside Edition.” Jim is also the author of this fine book called “The Last Day of My Life.”

    I got to tell you I found it just remarkable these bombshells that Leann dropped, one after the next after the next.

    Brooke Anderson, exactly what is she saying?

    ANDERSON: Yes, A.J., Leann is really opening up about the breakup of her marriage to her backup dancer Dean Sheremet in the October issue of “Shape” magazine revealed today. And she revealed why she thinks their marriage fell apart.

    Here it is. “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.”

    Sunny, I got to hand it to her, she`s open, she`s honest, I appreciate that. But I think she missed a golden opportunity here to redeem herself, because she did not directly clearly apologize.

    Instead, she tried to justify the whole thing and she hurt a whole lot of people. But at the same time, a lot of people will identify with what she is saying. So what do you think, should she be forgiven now?

    SUNNY HOSTIN, LEGAL CONTRIBUTOR, “IN SESSION”: No, no. I can`t forgive her and I have to tell you, I agree with you, Brooke, she should have apologized not only to her ex-husband but how about apologizing to her new man`s wife that she stole him from?

    How about apologizing to her? This was for me one of the most selfish sort of —

    ANDERSON: Yes.

    HOSTIN: — explanations for failing to just leave a marriage and get a divorce.

    HAMMER: Let`s bring in Jim Moret —

    ANDERSON: Yes, a lot — Jim, a lot of people called her a home wrecker. What do you think? Should she be forgiven?

    JIM MORET, CHIEF CORRESPONDENT, “INSIDE EDITION”: You know I don`t know that she`s asking for forgiveness, frankly. I think she`s trying to justify what she did. She may be confessing but I didn`t hear an apology. People make mistakes in all parts of their lives.

    ANDERSON: Of course.

    MORET: And, you know when, when you make a mistake and you say, I`m sorry —

    ANDERSON: Yes.

    MORET: — that`s different from what we`re hearing now. I didn`t hear her say, “I`m sorry, what I did was wrong.”

    ANDERSON: It was a non-apology.

    HAMMER: All right.

    So I think a lot of people clearly can relate to Leann and her husband marrying very young. They grew apart as they matured. Get it, got it.

    But I`ve got to say, I am glad she acknowledged that the way that the marriage ended was very immature.

    But let me get to the “Showbiz Flash Point.” Should we have sympathy for Leann? And Sunny, I want to go to you for this. I`m guessing based on what you just said, no.

    HOSTIN: No, no. I — I don`t think so. I mean sympathy for someone who, again, stole someone else`s husband and cheated on her own. I always say there`s a special place in hell for people that like to steal other people`s men.

    HAMMER: Yes.

    HOSTIN: She`s there, A.J. she`s there`s, it`s hot. Fire is hitting her.

    HAMMER: All right, Jim, to the “Showbiz Flash Point” do you think we should have sympathy for her?

    MORET: I don`t think she`s looking for sympathy. I think she`s looking for justification, for an explanation, and it takes two to tango in this situation.

    You know, I think Brooke is right. She missed a great opportunity just to say “I`m sorry.”

    HAMMER: Ok, but hopefully the honesty that she has come out with — with what she did say will at least be a good platform, a launching pad, if you will, for her to move forward with her life and hopefully an honest life.

    Showbiz Tonight(LR cover controvery):
    _______________________________

    ANDERSON: Hi, there. I`m Brooke Anderson in Hollywood with big news breaking today – LeAnn`s blown cover? There is a remarkable about-face from “Shape” magazine today because so many readers are bent out of shape over LeAnn Rimes being put on the cover.

    And the reason they`re so worked up over the workout magazine? Well, let`s just say it has everything to do with LeAnn`s confession that, yes, she did indeed leave her husband for the husband of another woman. SHOWBIZ TONIGHT with the shocker today that nobody saw coming.

    (BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

    (voice-over) Want to know how to get legions of women bent out of shape? Put a cheating celebrity on the cover of “Shape.”

    LEANN RIMES, SINGER: Yes, I`ve been under a lot of stress. The media can tear you apart.

    ANDERSON: Today, it`s LeAnn Rimes and “Shape” magazine that are being torn apart. LeAnn appears on “Shape`s” Web site and the cover of its October issue to talk about life with her boyfriend, former “CSI Miami” star, Eddie Cibrian, following their scandalous extramarital affair. The cover reads “LeAnn Rimes: How Working Out Saved Me.”

    RIMES: Working out is actually such a stress relief for me.

    ANDERSON: Now, SHOWBIZ TONIGHT can tell you furious readers are hitting Rimes with harsh words like “tramp” and “home wrecker” as they slam the fitness magazine for giving Rimes the cover girl treatment.

    And today, the heat has gotten so bad, “Shape” magazine is bending over backwards to explain itself to angry readers.

    DAVID CAPLAN, MANAGING EDITOR, “TOOFAB.COM”: Essentially, many readers really perceived it`s glorifying that she essentially, you know, cheated on her own husband and she had an affair with a married man.

    ANDERSON: LeAnn Rimes` reputation as country music`s biggest sweetheart all fell apart in March of last year when “Us Weekly” exposed her illicit affair with Eddie Cibrian. “UsMagazine.com” posted this super- steamy surveillance video of the two on a clandestine romantic dinner, complete with kissing and hand-holding. Both stars were married to other people at that time.

    CAPLAN: All of a sudden, she emerged as a home wrecker.

    RIMES: My life has changed a lot in the last year and a half.

    ANDERSON: In her recent “Shape” interview, Rimes expressed regret for the affair, which she blames in part on having gotten married at 19. And in clips posted on “Shape`s” Web site, she shared details about her life with Cibrian.

    RIMES: My boyfriend has two children so like I`m juggling helping with the kids now, which is a completely different thing.

    ANDERSON: But as soon as “Shape” hit newsstands, its largely female readers hit the roof, swamping “Shape`s” Web site with bitter complaints. One reader fumed, quote, “I plan to cancel my subscription after you put that tramp on your cover.”

    Another angry reader wrote, “This is the only time in my life I`ve ever torn a cover off a magazine before I read it. Shame on `Shape.`”

    CAPLAN: Even the cover line on the magazine says sort of, you know, how exercise and fitness helped her through. And many readers were just not sympathetic.

    ANDERSON: Now, celebrity Web site, “TooFab.com,” has obtained the apology E-mail that “Shape`s” editor-in-chief is sending to ticked-off readers. It says, quote, “Please know that our putting her 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.”

    David Caplan is the managing editor of “TooFab.com,” the site that obtained that E-mail. He tells SHOWBIZ TONIGHT “Shape” is in a tough position.

    CAPLAN: They`re really scrambling.

    ANDERSON: “Shape`s” editor now says her apology is being taken out of context. In a statement to SHOWBIZ TONIGHT, “Shape`s” editor-in-chief says, quote, “The fact is a mere 40 readers out of almost six million readers wrote in to complain. I wrote to those women apologizing that our cover choice did not make them happy, as I have done for other cover stars in the past.”

    CAPLAN: “Shape” magazine now is essentially backtracking.

    ANDERSON: The LeAnn Rimes “Shape” controversy may remind other magazines you put a star at the center of a bitter cheating scandal on your cover, be prepared to run for cover.

    (END VIDEOTAPE)

    I`ve got to tell you I was shocked to see LeAnn Rimes on the October cover issue of “Shape” so soon after she essentially broke up, not one, but two marriages. But I`m not surprised “Shape” magazine is now apologizing for the story. Here`s our SHOWBIZ Flashpoint – was an apology really necessary, though?

    In Hollywood is Ramani Darvasula who is a psychologist on the Bravo series, “Intervention.” She`s also a psychology professor at UCLA. Also, in Hollywood, Pat Lalama. She is an investigative journalist and the guest host of tonight`s “NANCY GRACE” show here on HLN.

    All right, ladies. The editor of “Shape” magazine told SHOWBIZ TONIGHT the magazine stands by its decision to put LeAnn Rimes on its cover and sent this apology E-mail. I want to reiterate it was only sent to 40 readers who complained. Even so, Pat, to our SHOWBIZ Flashpoint – was an apology necessary?

    PAT LALAMA, ENTERTAINMENT JOURNALIST: I don`t know that it was necessary. Two things – I think it`s taking the high road. If you find that your viewers are upset with something you did, hey, take the high road and apologize.

    It`s also a good marketing strategy. They don`t want the dirt on them, so to speak. I think it was a smart thing to do. I don`t think they had to do it.

    ANDERSON: Yes. I think it was a nice thing to do. And I think for the readership, it was definitely the smart thing to do. But Ramani, a lot of people are saying “Shape” was showing sympathy to someone who was essentially seen as an adulterer.

    RAMANI DARVASULA, PSYCHOLOGIST, “INTERVENTION” ON BRAVO: I don`t think they were showing sympathy at all. They simply put someone on the cover that they felt used exercise and health and wellness as a way to get over a stress.

    You may not agree with the source of her stress, but the fact of the matter is, she did and she belongs on “Shape.” And the fact is, if we only put people on magazine covers who never cheated on a marriage, you`d have a lot of magazines without covers.

    LALAMA: Ramani, hold on. I love you. I love you, but I`ve got to tell you this, are you telling me a national magazine can`t come up with 10 other women who deserve it more, a woman who suffered from breast cancer and worked out to get through that or someone who lost a child?

    I mean, there`s all kinds of – if you`re looking for a celebrity, there`s plenty of celebrities who have real issues. I want to say one thing, though. I think the use of the word “home wrecker” – I have a little problem with that, because there isn`t an equivalent word for the man. So I just had to throw that out there.

    ANDERSON: He`s a home wrecker, too. Let`s not take Eddie Cibrian out of the equation.

    LALAMA: Yes, he`s a home wrecker. And we talk about people not getting rewarded – he shouldn`t get rewarded for anything. But the fact of the matter is, there`s just so many more deserving women who deserve that post than her.

    ANDERSON: And we can`t forget that “Shape” not only put her on the cover, did a story about her inside their issue. They did an entire behind-the-scenes video about LeAnn`s new life with Eddie Cibrian, her boyfriend, whom, you know, she left her husband for. And LeAnn talks about playing a role in the lives of his kids with another woman. Watch.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    RIMES: I`m every other woman that has issues depending on what day it is. My life has changed a lot in the last year and a half. My boyfriend has two children so, like, I`m juggling helping with the kids now, which is a completely different thing.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    ANDERSON: OK. I think LeAnn here kind of missed a golden opportunity to redeem herself by – she could have apologized directly in her “Shape” interview and she did not. So Pat, is it time for LeAnn to publicly just say, “I`m sorry, everybody. I`m sorry”?

    LALAMA: I think she`s shameless. I think she`s reveling in this whole thing, “I`m getting attention. And yes, I`ve got this cool new boyfriend and who cares if there`s kids and marriages with other people? I`m on the cover of a magazine. And I`m just a hot (UNINTELLIGIBLE).

    ANDERSON: But it`s not cool. Yes, it`s not cool.

    LALAMA: It`s odd. And I`m happy to see some moral outrage for a change.

    ANDERSON: Yes. And the one person who has not spoken out about LeAnn`s cheating shenanigan is that guy we mentioned who is also involved, Eddie Cibrian. You know, he`s not Mr. Innocent here, cheated on his wife with LeAnn.

    DURVASULA: Yes.

    ANDERSON: But Ramani, do you think if it were Eddie and not LeAnn on the cover of a fitness magazine, do you think we would even be debating this today?

    DURVASULA: No.

    ANDERSON: Is there some sort of ugly double standard still out there? I`ve got to say – sorry not to let you speak just yet, but I`ve got to say if, you know, a men`s magazine – men predominantly are reading it. But if I got wind of it, I would be debating it. I would be outraged. Ramani, what do you think?

    DURVASULA: I`m there`s very much – I mean, the myth of Jezebel is alive and well. When the woman is cheating, we still put a scarlet A on her chest. When the man is doing it, we tend to be more forgiving.

    But at the end of the day, “Shape” is not a magazine about putting heroes on the cover. Whether we agree or don`t agree with what LeAnn Rimes did, she went through the stress of making some difficult decision, perhaps bad decisions in her marriage, and this is how she coped with it, through exercise and diet. So I don`t know that changes –

    ANDERSON: You`re right. They`re not a magazine about putting heroes on the cover. But Pat –

    LALAMA: No.

    ANDERSON: I think the message they were trying to send –

    LALAMA: Exactly.

    ANDERSON: Can get very easily lost when you put somebody on the cover who has such a fresh scandal. You think home wrecker. You don`t think fitness.

    LALAMA: It sends the wrong message.

    ANDERSON: We`ve got to end it there –

    LALAMA: Come on. They couldn`t come up with another more deserving woman?

    ANDERSON: They very well could have. They put LeAnn on that cover three times. Maybe they felt comfortable with her. Ramani Durvasula, Pat Lalama, good talking with you. Thanks.

    2 scummmbags engaged. their marriage will be a farce too and also their impending divorce…..UGHHHHH. Enough of these phuckwads.

  • Nikki

    She needs to sack the stylist or needs to wake up because she looks like she went out in her pj’s and just could not be bothered.
    I am sorry but she is a homewrecker and both are unfaithful both are a pair together and Eddie’s ex is well shot of him that is what you call one classy lady she has kept herself to herself and Miss Rimes should have done the same instead of flaunting it all over and posing for the pappers like its going out of style to say “look at what I got” and now playing happy family with the boys god makes me want to puke.

  • d.

    Gwen just by clicking on this post and commenting a million times with all this “info” you’re “supporting” them too. The blogs and tabloids love writing about them because they spark controversy and get attention. If people would stop paying attention to these two they would go away. But for whatever reason,,, they sell. And I don’t agree that it’s Leann paying for press, because a lot of it is negative. Plus, this is Just Jared, he RARELY passes judgement on any celebs so he doesn’t get on anyone’s bad side (like Perez)…he just reports. So no, I don’t think she’s paying Jared.

  • Rayna

    I always hated these two together for what they did! And I never thought they would last for this long. But I guess it’s a good thing, maybe they really are in love??? I’m really surprised by them, especially making through all the hatred from some people it has to be hard to maintain a relationship when you feel like everyone is rooting against you. Since she’s in the kids’ lives now, I hope they stay together, it seems like she’s good with the boys and really cares about them.

  • Ruth

    They are really despicable but then there are many more people in Hollywood who are equally insensitive and blatant in their behaviour (e.g. ?Christine Aguilera).

    I am just sick of seeing them nearly every day on JJ. I like this site but find it hard to visit when they are selling themselves in such a pathetic fashion. Actually I am starting to feel sorry for him – no chance of work and waking up every morning to that.

    p.s. none of my business but of course JJ is being paid by the Rimes PR people. Why else would they appear so often? He doesn’t work and she does but nothing special. This is supposed to be a site where we see people who are actually working.

    Why is he never with his kids. Always on vacation. I tell you some people will do anything to escape responsibilites, like proposing to an ugly girl just b/c she has money. He is already planning for the future b/c he knows he will luck out in the money department when they divorce.

  • Racy

    @gwen: Courts didn’t seem to think Eddie was cheating Brandi out of child support, did they? She have a job yet? Believe they have 50 prcent on the kids. Means she is responsible for her time, huh? Did you read the DM she did that was retweeted. Did appear to be worried about child support then, did she?

  • Racy

    @Nikki: Did you say classy? Did you read her recent DM that was retwittered? What is your definition of classy?

  • gwen

    @d.:

    Hey WEWE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So now that people have caught on that you are paying JJ, you think that you can make it right by writing a post about you are not paying these blogs? It’s too late for that. Everyone knows that JJ posts about you because you have some deal with them.

    1) “Gwen just by clicking on this post and commenting a million times with all this “info” you’re “supporting” them too. ”

    Wow, seriously, are you going to use that argument AGAIN? There is one flaw in your own logic. Remember all those most popular lists that JJ made in Dec? Well LR and EC names weren’t even on those lists. So if by posting in these threads I am helping EC and LR, then how come JJ didn’t include LR on ANY of their lists? Furthermore, if posting in these threads was helping LR, then please explain why she isn’t included in the top celeb list?

    Please think before you post. Or least take a look at the list of the celebs that JJ is acknowledging that brings in the numbers.

    2)”The blogs and tabloids love writing about them because they spark controversy and get attention. ”

    WRONG. The blogs posts about LR and EC for two reasons: To call them out on their bad behavior or because they are striking up deals with them. If the blogs love to post about them, then how come none of the blogs went out in search of EC and LR when they disappeared for a week? If blogs love to post about EC and LR, then once again how come they are not included in the lists of top celebs on these blogs?

    3):”If people would stop paying attention to these two they would go away. ”

    That’s a lie. Everyone knows that LR is tipping off the paps. When the blogs/tabs are not pursuing LR, she just calls up her mouthpieces and leaks a story or have them meet her at some place.

    LR isn’t going to go away, she is just too insecure and she can’t function unless she is causing BG problems.

    4)”But for whatever reason,,, they sell. ”

    They do? Where did you here this? If LR and EC sell, how come no one is buying LR single on Itunes? What happened the last time LR was on the cover of a mag? If LR and EC sell, please explain why they are not in included in the top celeb lists on ANY of these blogs?

    5)”And I don’t agree that it’s Leann paying for press, because a lot of it is negative.”

    Of course you don’t. You ARE doing damage control. Everyone knows that EC and LR are paying the press. Notice that it’s always the same media outlets EVERYTIME who are posting the positive things.

    Take for instance this photo-op. Just about any site that posted these photos desrcibed this photo-op as NAUSEATING. Compare to that to JJ and Dailymail. They are being paid.

    6)” Plus, this is Just Jared, he RARELY passes judgement on any celebs so he doesn’t get on anyone’s bad side (like Perez)…he just reports. ”

    That’s true. JJ doesn’t pass judgement on the celebs who are PAYING them.

    7)”So no, I don’t think she’s paying Jared.”

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Wow, so this must mean that you are doing DAMAGE CONTROL.

    JJ is being PAID. They post about LR more than they post about AJ and BP. And AJ and BP are considered their top celebs. So what

  • gwen

    @Rayna:

    Wow, really?

    Seriously, do you really think that we don’t know it’s you?

    1) “I always hated these two together for what they did!”

    BAIT and SWITCH.

    2)”And I never thought they would last for this long.”

    Of course they are still together, LR bank account is still full.

    3)” But I guess it’s a good thing, maybe they really are in love???”

    Do people in love have to pay JJ and Dailymail to validate their relationship? You know that something is wrong with their relationship because LR spends more time tweeting than she does with EC. Not to mention, if EC doesn’t even love his own kids enough to pay his child support, do you really think that he loves LR?

    4)” I’m really surprised by them, especially making through all the hatred from some people it has to be hard to maintain a relationship when you feel like everyone is rooting against you.”

    BUSTED. If you are going to pull these BAIT and SWITCH posts, then you might want to refrain from making LR and EC into the victims. EC and LR are getting “hate” because they are doing “hateful” things. LR knew that this was the wrong thing to do, and she tipped off the paps anyway.

    5)”Since she’s in the kids’ lives now, I hope they stay together, it seems like she’s good with the boys and really cares about them.”

    If LR were good for those boys, this photo-op wouldn’t even exist. This photo-op just shows just how little LR cares about those kids. EC isn’t even paying his child support and here LR is taking pleasure in that.

  • gwen

    What happened to the voting system?

    In the previous thread, the posts that were not in favor of LR were positive and now it’s the opposite for this thread? Strange.

    Is someone messing with the votes AGAIN?

    And d said that JJ isn’t being paid.

    If JJ isn’t being paid by LR, how does one explain the dramatic change in the voting system rfom one thread to another and in just a day?

  • gwen

    @kaylyn:

    Hey WEWE!!!!!!!!!

    Now why are you here posting under all these different names when your single still hasn’t made it into the top 100s?

    Now why do you keep doing this? Oh wait, that is right, your fanbase is low and you still can’t get the support you need from those 99,000 followers of yours.

    I love that you are stupid enough to keep coming back and posting under all these different names.

    1) “They are having fun! ”

    Are you serious? Since EC isn’t paying his child support and alimony, he shouldn’ t be having fun, he needs to be out finding a REAL JOB.

    2)”That ex-is no lady-see what she tweeted to all her twats-disgusting-she is still begging for attention. ”

    WEWE, you humped on EC in front of his kids, are you telling us that you are a lady?

    3)”GO AWAY BRANDI_ you lost-give it up. ”

    BUSTED. You wrote a lot of those posts when you were posting as CBME. So thanks for outting yourself.

    4)”Go find a job-your an embarrasment to all women with your begging. ”

    YOUR?

    BUSTED again, doesn’t LR often confuse YOUR and YOU’RE?

    Wow, you keep trying to teach BG a lesson and in the end you just slap yourself in the face.

    8)”No wonder Eddie cheats on Leann, she has a heart of stone.”

  • gwen

    @Speak Now:

    Hey WEWE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now here is the moment of truth, if these “fans” are REAL, then how come they are not downloading your song? Don’t you think you are making yourself look bad? Why would these fans even come here to defend you when they won’t even download your single? So now it looks like all these “fans”(aka kaylyn, sandy, d, rayna, racy) are all just names that one person is using to make it look like you have support.

    Perhaps if you spent less time keeping track of what I am doing, you would be able to focus more on your career.

    How is that single doing? What? It’s STILL not in the top 100s on Itunes?

    Hey I heard that you didn’t even get any nominations for the ACM. Is that why you are so upset and are posting under all these different names?

    Well I know that you are jealous of Taylor Swift, just look at how you use the name of her album as your name. That is creepy. So not only do you SWF BG, you also SWF Taylor Swift.

    1) “I wonder if SPEAK NOW’s ” family” realizes how much help she needs? ”

    2)”Nobody else, but Leann, would sit and obsess over every move a those people who don’t like and her and EC makes and then gets upsets because people would dare challenge the fluff that JJ and Dailymail posts by posting articles unless they were in dire need of therapy.”
    __________________________________

    To Sandy(aka RACY)

    Wow, well one thing is for sure. Leann must really be upset because she has resorted to hijacking other posters names. So WEWE, why did you go back to making posts in

    1)”GWEN PLEASE GET A LIFE!!! You’re pathetic! Or is it Brandi?

    TRANSLATION: WEWE is trying to convince the record execs that the backlash against her is not REAL, but is caused all by BG.

    Wow, why does this sound so familiar? Because you wrote those posts when you were using the name of Speak Now? Thanks for outting yourself. I told you to spend more time on your career, that way you don’t have to post under all these different names.

    WEWE, why did EC call you pathetic?

    2) “Oh…..I’m not defending Leann…I think she is an ugly dog!!! With all that money she has, you would think she would get her ugly nose and squinty eyes fixed!!!! YUCK!!!”

    Has anyone noticed this weird thing that has been happening lately?

    These posters show up either saying that they are neutral or they will start off saying something mean about LR and EC and then will turn it into a slamfest against BG?

    So this is what the future holds for LR, her own fans can’t even acknowledge that they are REAL FANS, they have to act like they either BG supporters or EC/LR haters.

    BTW, it’s very obvious that you are Speak Now, you keep saying the very same thing over and over.

  • http://bettyj2u betty

    Not only is Eddie not spending his half time with his children he is half supporting them also. What a prize, nothing but trophy man.You can’t raise kids in your spare time> Eddie only want responsibility of the kids when they don’t interfere with his personal pleasures sperm donor father like I always said. Regardless of Brandi being classy we know Eddie has none. At least she spends her alloted time with her children.

  • gwen

    @Racy:

    Hey WEWE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Things must really be bad for you since you are here posting under all these different names. Well you must have lost it when you found out that you didn’t get any noms for the ACM. Don’t worry,, I’m sure they will let you host and then will make a lot of cheating jokes.

    1)”Courts didn’t seem to think Eddie was cheating Brandi out of child support, did they?”

    Now why does this sound so familiar? That is right, you said the very same thing when you were posting on E as tomatotot. Really RACY/CBME how many times do we have to have this conversation, think before you post.

    Now let’s think. Why did the court rule in LR and EC favor?

    LR and EC have MONEY to pay for lawyers to make the courts see things their way.

    Not to mention, we can probably conclude that EC provided the courts with false info about his finances.

    Just because a court rules in EC and LR favor it doesn’t make it right. Did you hear the case of that woman who tried to get a restraining order against her stalker? She had the emails that the man was sending to her and yet the judge didn’t rule in her favor. Can you guess what happened? The stalker killed the woman that day. So please you can’t even argue that just because a court/judge makes a ruling that it is right.

    2)” She have a job yet?”

    Well BASED on these photo-ops we know that EC doesn’t.

    WEWE, we get it. You hate the fact that EC doesn’t even want to take care of you.

    3)” Believe they have 50 prcent on the kids. ”

    And your point? That doesn’t matter. EC was order to pay child support and alimony. He then went to the courts and had his payments reduced because he told a judge that he couldn’t afford it.

    Now how does that make EC look when people see him on vacation when he knows full well that he can’t even pay his child support and alimony?

    4)”Means she is responsible for her time, huh?”

    No it doesn’t. EC was ordered to pay child support and alimony, so that means that he is responsible. Since we he is vacationing AGAIN, we know that he isn’t financially suffering like he told a judge.

    5)” Did you read the DM she did that was retweeted.”

    So what? You were sending BG some very nasty tweets. Yes RACY we know that it’s you. Too bad JJ didn’t do anything about your stalking, since they are very familiar with the fact that you have a very bad habit of stalking and harassing others. But then again, why would they. You are Leann.

    6)”Did appear to be worried about child support then, did she?”

    Are you serious? You are sending BG some very nasty tweets under 10-30 different names, how did you expect her to respond.

    BG should report you and then come here and confront JJ because they had ample warning that you were going after BG.

  • gwen

    1) This is from Popsugar:

    Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt have been the reigning King and Queen of ridiculously staged photo ops for the past few years, though there may be some new competition on the scene. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian seem to share Heidi and Spencer’s flair for drama, posing for a serious engagement shoot and silly bikini beach strolls. Also like Heidi and Spencer, LeAnn and Eddie just love to share PDA in some of the most unusual places. Considering all of LeAnn and Eddie’s recent camera time, we’d like to know what you think — are LeAnn and Eddie the new Heidi and Spencer

    ________________________________________
    2) From Hollyscoop:

    LeAnn gets our #1 pick because nobody likes a homewrecker. She basically flaunted her affair with Eddie Cibrian for everyone to see, and then cried because everyone hates her now.

    Last year at this time, Leann and her ex Dean Sheremet decided to divorce. It wasn’t long before LeAnn moved right in with Eddie. They pose for the paps like it’s going out of style, and expect everyone to think they’re adorable just because they’re in love.

    We understand that sometimes the love fizzles in a marriage, and you can even start developing feelings for someone else. But the way she went about the whole thing is just despicable. You’re naughty to the max, LeAnn, and deserve nothing but coal in your stocking this year! “

  • gwen

    Do you know why WEWE is so upset and is posting under all these different names?

    1) Despite the fact that she has over 99,000 fans, her single still hasn’t made it into the top 100s on Itunes.

    2) The other sites that are carrying these photo-ops basically slammed them, some sites even went to far as to say that they were NAUSEATING.

    3) LR didn’t get nominated for any awards for ACM. It makes you rethink her Grammy nom, right?

  • Kaylyn

    Brandi only wishes she could get that “worthless, scumbag,cheatin” ex husband back. In fact its obvious she wants that back-or she would have moved on-she will beg for any crumb thats left of that man. Brandi you know LeAnn has the best around, thats why you beggin!

  • http://bettyj2u betty

    @Kaylyn Why would Brandi want Eddie back.He has no job and she can’t support him and take him on vacations and buy or lease him luxury cars .He can’t even afford to pay her all the support money.The only thing Brandi is begging for is the money she was awarded by the courts.Leann does have the best around. $$$$$$$$ Thats why Eddie hangs tight.LOL
