LeAnn Rimes: Being A Stepmom is 'Beyond Rewarding'

LeAnn Rimes: Being A Stepmom is 'Beyond Rewarding'

LeAnn Rimes leaves Nobu after dining on Wednesday night (September 28) in Malibu, Calif.

The 29-year-old singer signed a copy of her new record, Lady & Gentlemen, on the way out.

LeAnn recently reflected on her “bonus boys” and how she and husband Eddie Cibrian are raising his sons.

“These two little boys came into my life for a reason and I think I came into theirs for a reason too,” LeAnn wrote on her blog. “It’s beyond rewarding to be able to help Eddie raise the boys and shape their lives. I take my role very seriously and I’m proud of the peaceful, loving environment Eddie and I have created for our family in our household.”

    Where are her legs? Can’t find them.

    Oh my God, she’s glowing.

    She would be more attractive if she had a fuller figure and evidently from these photos, thicker legs.

  • Rovena

    If it’s “beyond rewarding”, why don’t you and Eddie have some of your own?!

  • YAAAS HONEY!!!

    JJ is her publicist paying you to post about her?! Nobody cares about this homewrecking basic bittch!

  • Linda

    LeAnn conveniently forget that those two boys have a mother and her name is Brandi. She make it sounds as if Brandi is not in the picture. Brandi is raising her sons. I wish this big mouth would just shut up and go away. One day, the boys will read all of this crap & see how LeAnn & their dad disrespect their mother (a mother who loves her children very much).

  • Ingrid

    Come on, give her a break. Enough with the hate! Those boys are Eddie’s so it was really his responsibility to worry about their welfare, not hers, when he broke up his family. Suzanne Somers’ husband Alan Hamel was married when he began an affair with her. She didn’t know it at the time. They’ve been together for 40 years. This marriage could be “meant to be”.

    I bet she was probably at home thinking….F you Jennifer Anistion, how dear you parade your boy toy around like that, and take away my title of…MOST CHEESY, MAN STEALING, HOMEWRECKER AWARD. I’ve earned that title, I worked hard for that title. I lost weight, got my boobs done, and you came and snatched it away. I not gonna stand for it, do you hear me JA. I don’t care what I have to do. I’ll put on a trashier outfit, call the papzzz, heck I’ll propably pay someone to ask for my autograph. If that doesn’t work, I’ll say something nice about my “bonus kids”, and act like i’m a loving stepmom even if it means making their mother look like a derelict. That will show them I’m the queen of all things classless, tacky, and trashy. Bring it on you Kardishinan w h o r e s

  • Annie

    She starves/exercises herself down super skinny because her and Eddie know that’s the only thing that keeps people talking about them. She can’t pull it off at all, she just looks stupid and sickly.

  • When will she shut up?

    When will this woman shut up? I think she believes that America is dumb and if she creates enough photo ops we will believe her. Newsflash – she DIDN’T put these children first and neither did her louse of a husband. The ex-wife might not be perfect but I am getting the feeling that Leann is trying to discredit her and that is tacky beyond belief after what she did to the woman.

    Obviously, America doesnt want to watch her husband or his show wouldn’t be failing. Leann’s mouth has alot to do with people hating her husband – people don’t care about cheating but do care about how you conduct yourself after the fact.

    Leann just shut up already.

  • asha

    I wish she would stop talking about these kids like they are her own. She needs to recognize her place and realize they already have a mother.

  • Saw this coming

    If I didn’t know any better I would swear that Leann is starting her campaign to take those kids away from their biological mother. Leann, we hate you.

  • http://twitter.com/dawn9476 Dawn

    Sad. She helped wrecked the family of those two little boys and now she is using them to sell her album. Pathetic.

  • JL

    She’s crazy. Those kids will know the truth about her and Eddie soon.
    Cheaters.

  • Jbo

    I bet her “bonus” kids are like the step kids in Brides Maids “Why don’t you F-off Helen”.

    I think if I were Brandi – it would be hard for me not to be plotting LeAnorexia’s demise…. BWAHAHAHAH!!!!

  • Go Ask Alice

    @Linda:

    No, yes, in adition towaht you said, or,ugh, LR makes it sound as if Brandi Glanville, the boys mother, mother, is not “appropriate.” Not well. Not of good character.
    UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Will this girl,LR, just STFU?!??!

  • Nel

    Such a “staged” signing of a hard copy cd by an older male. The entire photo op was preplanned to give the appearance LeAnn has lots of people interested in her crappy music. Undoubtedly LeAnn is spending her own money to buy album downloads to skew chart results to save face. So sorry LeAnn, your “face” is well beyond saving!

  • http://bettyj2u@earthlink.net betty

    Leann those boys did NOT come into your life you were Forced into theirs.You need them they don’t need you they have a mother You wanted them in your life you have the empty nest syndrome. If I were Brandi I would laugh at her for being such a pathetic woman. She has no one fooled. Leann is all talk trying to make herself relevant. Mason is not fooled he knows whats going on and always will be loyal to his mother he knows she is the one they can count on.Mason demeanor says it all in all of their show and tell pictures they only display the happy family image he and Leann are trying to project without success. Leann is such a phony she admits she and Eddie had no tools to handle their affair so what in the “H”makes her think she has tools to raise another mother kids. Brandi called Eddie a douche she is right only a douche would moved his kids in with his mistress.Since marriage she is trying to convince the public she and Eddie are respectable and projecting a good image for the kids but the public knows they are liars and phonies that’s why Eddie show is a flop and even if Leann albums is successful which she better hope so because she will be supporting that loser of a husband she so coveted. indefinitely.

  • Go Ask Alice

    Ok,I have breathed…as I sit at lunch break.
    My own personal comp, so I am safe.

    Who is LeAnn’s pr person? manager?
    Seems to me FINALLY , after all this time, they should get it through her thick skull to STFU. STF about Brandi, Eddi,and esp., those two kids.
    To whoever said about Eddie’s show,right you are.
    I saw it. It was ok. I saw it because I watched PamAm too which was also, just OK. OK. It is new. That was just the first show. This is not the new show of the second season.
    new shows are hard to make at this make or break time.
    LeAnn should not, for Eddie’s career and his shows’s sake, STFU. Don’t make any association so to speak. Yeah, they go out togeter, with the kids too, fine. They have to live their lives,but STFU already!!!!

    Easy. Just STFU.

  • Sihaam

    @Rox: Rox you made my day, I no longer need to comment on this subject.

  • SandrahMsFabulous

    She sounds like a very insecure woman to me. Her drastic weight loss is to try to fit with the Hollywood Starlets. She tries very hard to convince herself, the public, Eddie and the kids that she is the best thing that ever happened in their life. I’m sure she is constantly haunted by the possibility that Eddie may leave her one day for another woman. She needs to stop tweeting and try to keep a low profile for her own sake.

  • Go Ask Alice

    Betty, I totally AGREE, TOTALLY agree with you about the mohering thing.
    Brandi is their mother. She is a good mother by all accounts.
    The DUI, well, she won’t have another one. It was mild as far as her breatherlizer.
    The RHofBH, yeah, it is kind of rude,vulgar of a show, but it is not for her kids or kids to see.
    Yeah, Brandi did call Eddie a douche on the show, but still, that is on her . So what. Not thebest thing for her to have said on tv about her kids’ father either I fault Brandi for that.STFU for Brandi there..
    I am mentioning these things, because I am trying to see where LeAnn is going,basing what about Brandi for those mothering comments.
    I am not anti -Brandi here.
    LeAnn’s comments are totally inappropriate and uneccessary and unreal and are low.
    YES, it is ok for her to say that to her personal friends and they can pump her ego up ,make her feel good, and agree and stuff, but not for the public to read.
    Which brings to the “tools” she is always talking about.
    “Tools” to do what? LeAnn is a tool.
    How about STFU?!!?
    A tool is something used to mend, fix, etc. something. Well, LeAnn is not repairing, fixing, but breaking.
    How can you do a wrong thing the right way? You cannot actually. BUT, really how LeAnn and Eddie got together so publically and making a fool of their spouse is old news.
    Really, EddieLeAnn are no different from so many other couples you personally or who are celebs. Brandi should have been happy in the end, be thrilled now, because the boys have a rich stepmom and Eddie had messed over Brandi so many times before per her own words and the online pic out there with some lil actress. Really, he was messing over Brandi well before LeAnn. Either he was not happy or is just a tool.,
    All LeAnn and Eddie should have done, and he really has, is STFU. they should ahve divorced their spouses asap. Took up with each other behind closed doors. Wait a time period ,months to almost ayear before being in public as a couple and then after that STFU.

  • Karen

    For Rimes, the step in step mom means to step back. Respect the mother of those children and stop using them for your own publicity. To be any kind of mom doesn’t mean you see the children once or twice a month after you have partied, attended fashion shows, and taken care of your own interests first. Being any sort of mom, means sacrifice for the sake of the children. It means “giving”, LeAnn, not taking from them and using them to promote ones self. Go away you homewrecking has been!!!!

  • Q

    Maybe She want eat something

  • Carolina

    Rimes is beyond ridiculous. What a transparent phony. She needs to keep going with the anorexia as she brings nothing positive to this world. And before anyone says “but her voice.” Whatever, there are a ton of great singers out there who have good character.

  • unknown

    She would look even more frighting in real life with how skinny she is. She has a middle school body

  • Karen

    @Nel

    No doubt she’s buying her own music. The three best songs on the CD tanked and now we are to believe the album is doing well? No way!!!! Eddie’s show is about to be canceled and when he finds out LeAnn is wasting his money buying her own crappy CD’s, he’ll have to get a loan from Spencer Pratt. LeAnn made it way too obvious that she was buying her CD’s to try and start a buzz. Her Give video didn’t make it on CMT’s top 20 but she wants us to think it’s successfull. Give it up LeAnn. Get off the stage. Nobody cares about your pretentious singing.

  • http://bettyj2u@earthlink.net betty

    @Go ask Alice Brandi called it right. Eddie had no problem acting like one so he got called out. I’m glad Brandi has a forum she can dish back some of the dirt she was given publicly.The kids already have been hurt and you can’t erase the damage that has been done.as long as Leann is in their lives.She’s now using her appearances on TV shows to promote how great a BONUS mom she is.She the only one that thinks she’s a bonus. You notice its all about her. Have a kid Leann or adopt and learn what motherhood is about because you are no source.

  • UGH

    I can’t believe how much I hate this woman. She makes every single stepmom look bad. I used to buy all of her music. No more. She makes me physically ill.

    LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Love the Cameras — Are They the New Heidi and Spencer?

    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?

    The 5 Most Annoying Celebrity Couples of 2011

    Less is more when it comes to celebrity couples. When stars focus on their personal relationships in private, it’s better for their image than mugging for the paparazzi 24/7.

    There are celebrity couples we love, but who are celebrity couples of 2011 we love to hate? Here are the top 5.

    4. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian

    Eddie Cibrian leaves all the talking to his country singing wife who loves to hop on Twitter and remind all the haters, who chastised her and Eddie for being cheaters, how happy and in love she is as Mrs. Cibrian. We even get plenty of pics of the skinny stepmom in skimpy bathing suits prancing down the beach with her man.

    “I love me the way I am & I don’t care what jealous people think,” tweets Rimes.

    -From OMG

    Yeap, what a great idea to bring in the ratings for PBC/NBC. Keep saturating the media/internet/blogs with WEWE and EC faces, didn’t that do wonders for PBC when EC and WEWE set up and staged DAILY photo-ops during fashion week? What? You mean to tell me that with all that famewhoring WEWE and EC did during fashion week, it did nothing to bring in the ratings for PBC? So now their plan D is to bombard the media/internet with tons of photos of WEWE and EC (yes we know that WEWE is going to make EC join her because she needs to keep an eye on him so that he doens’t get into any trouble) in London?

    From Deadline Hollywood:

    “On the other broadcast networks last night, NBC’s The Playboy Club got off to a disappointing start with a 1.6/4 in 18-49 and 5 million viewers at 10 PM. It was down 30% from the premiere of NBC’s short-lived drama Chase in the same slot last year and did only a little better than last fall’s big flop, Fox’s Lone Star, which opened with a 1.3/3 and 4.1 million. The Playboy Club tied another short-lived show, Crusoe, as NBC’s lowest-rated fall drama premiere ever. The Playboy Club didn’t get much help from its lead-in, a two-hour The Sing-Off, which managed a 1.9/5 in the demo and 5.2 million viewers. (Chase had a stronger lead-in last year from The Event.) Sing-Off, whose only previous run was as a limited holiday series, was down 32% from its December debut to log the show’s lowest-rated telecast. Overall, NBC’s Monday lineup was down 30% from last fall, a troublesome sign for the network, which is looking to mount a ratings turnaround.”

    LeAnn Rimes: Being A Stepmom is ‘Beyond Rewarding’

    Of course WEWE Rimes thinks that being a stepmom is rewarding. She gets to exploit two kids and make a profit off of it and her mouthpieces reward her for this behavior by posting DAILY photos of her, even though they won’t include her in their top celeb lists.

    1) “leaves Nobu after dining on Wednesday night (September 28) in Malibu, Calif.”

    Nobu? You mean that restaurant that WEWE and EC took the kids to for a second time knowing full that their faces were going to be plastered all over the internet, mags, and blogs? That Nobu?

    It looks like WEWE is trying to convince people that she has fans, so how much did she have to pay these people to ask for autographs? Her people are still in the other thread posting under different names to write nice things about this album, so we know that something isn’t write here.

    2) “reflected ”

    More like she pimped those kids out for own personal gain.

    What was that thing EC said about now wanting his kids to experience ANY TYPE of media exposure?

    So what we can conclude is that EC is a liar and that he cares about no one, not even his own kids.

    3) Those kids have a mother, so WEWE isn’t helping EC raise those kids.

    Why is WEWE so threatened by BG presence that she has to act as if BG doens’t exist when BG and EC kids are with her? Doesn’t that seem odd? If WEWE relationship with EC was stable or as happy as she claims, WEWE wouldn’t constantly feel threatened by BG presence.

    4) ““These two little boys came into my life for a reason and I think I came into theirs for a reason too,””

    WRONG. Those two little boys came into your life because you forced your way into their lives by having an affair with their father and then exposing that affair because EC wasn’t moving at the pace she desired.

    YOU came into their life because you slept and had an affair with their father.

    BTW, why is WEWE STILL talking about those kids, didn’t EC say that he didn’t want his kids to experience ANY type of media exposure and since this blog entry has made in onto every site, isn’t that precisely what has happened?

    5) ““It’s beyond rewarding to be able to help Eddie raise the boys and shape their lives. ”

    Yeap, like for instance when her “fans” won’t buy her single or album off of itunes, WEWE writes a blog post about those little boys just to get them to buy it. So in other words WEWE is excited because she can profit from exploiting those kids names and faces.

    6) I take my role very seriously and I’m proud of the peaceful, loving environment Eddie and I have created for our family in our household.”

    Yeap, so seriously that WEWE writes a blog entry and tweets about those kids even after EC stated that he didn’t want his kids to be exposed to the media and paps.

    So seriously that she doesn’t even bother to put on a bra when she is with those kids.

    So seriously that WEWE encourages her “fans” to attack BG by opening up several different twitter accounts.

    So seriously that she wrote this blog, which is odd because didn’t that blog end up doing the very thing that EC stated he didn’t want for his kids?

    That loving environment would include what? Tipping off JJ, x17, Dailymail, and HW gossip site so that those kids faces are plastered all over the place? Sleeping in the same bed with those kids with EC before EC divorce is even final?

    Hi AMEJEAN/ATHENA

    When will WEWE shut up?

    So now WEWE is upset because once again another one of her bright ideas resulted in backlash?

  • http://bettyj2u@earthlink.net betty

    @SpeakNow Leann seems to be disliked by most even in the Enquirer she was called Olive Oyl.S

  • Indigo

    Why does she always insist on talking about those kids? O yeah, to rub Brandi’s face in the fact that she gets to be around her kids. Those boys may like Leann ( because she buys them things and makes them cookies etc.) but they LOVE their mom and she is 1000% irreplaceable in their little hearts.

    That’s what really drives Leann nuts. She “took” Eddie but she can’t really have him all to herself because through the kids a piece of Brandi will always exist and hold a place in Eddie’s heart and that drives Leann NUTS!

  • http://bettyj2u@earthlink.net betty

    @Indigo You got that right.That just shows her insecurities she thought she won the”prize” but she has to share it with his kids and a reminder of the woman he loved and she ain’t going nowhere.
