LeAnn Rimes Steps Out After Getting Backlash for Rape Joke

LeAnn Rimes Steps Out After Getting Backlash for Rape Joke

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian hold hands while heading out for dinner on Wednesday evening (August 27) at Lure Fish House in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

The married couple was joined by his kids Mason and Jake (not pictured) to celebrate LeAnn‘s 32nd birthday the day before her real big day.

LeAnn is getting some backlash right now for making a rape joke when talking about losing her virginity in an episode of In Bed With Joan.

“I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15?” LeAnn said. “I know, it’s kind of a bulls–t story. I was 16. There you go.”

When asked if it was nice or bad, LeAnn said, “He was my boyfriend for like three and a half years. He was fine. I think I raped him. I think that’s how it happened.”

    The Spotlight Seeker and The Compulsive Cheater

    [Blind Gossip] This award-winning performer’s husband has been cheating on her since the beginning of their marriage. In fact, he is cheating on her right now with another female celebrity. The identity of the mistress would probably surprise you.

    Wife knows all about the affair, but is reluctant to file for divorce. That’s because this marriage keeps her in the spotlight… which is the thing she craves more than honesty or fidelity!

    So she will do anything to give the appearance that things are fine, including arranging for daily affectionate “spontanteous” photo ops with the Husband to try to convince you that all is well. She calls her publicist first thing every morning to provide an itinerary of where she will be for the day. Her publicist then calls the paparazzi to ensure that they are there to “secretly” capture how devoted they are to each other and their family. Yes, it’s all done for the cameras.

    LeAnn Rimes Gets In Bed With Joan Rivers And Makes A REALLY Offensive Rape Joke!

    How did LeAnn Rimes lose her virginity? That’s all Joan Rivers wanted to know.

    But when LeAnn and her hubby Eddie Cibrian got In Bed With Joan, the host got a little more raunch than she expected! LeAnn’s answer began innocently enough. She said:

    “I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15? …I know, it’s kind of a bulls**t story. It’s like, oh please. I was 16. There you go.”

    But when Joan pressed for more deets, asking if the guy was at least nice, LeAnn said:

    “He was my boyfriend for like three and a half years. He was fine. I think I raped him. I think that’s how it happened.”

    Eesh. Either LeAnn has a horror story she’s never gone public with or she has a really inappropriate sense of humor. Based on the rest of the episode, filled with sex and roofie jokes, we’re guessing the latter.

    Srsly, even Joan seemed to be a little uncomfortable. See the entire NSFW episode (below):

    LeAnn Rimes Continues Campaign To Be Most Disgusting Person On Earth

    LeAnn Rimes (the human equivalent of a Filet-O-Fish found underneath the backseat of a rental car after a three-month road trip), has truly outdone herself this year in her continued campaign to be the most disgusting person on Earth.

    People who already knew she was a complete nutbag simply had their opinions confirmed, while those previously unsure watched ten seconds of LeAnn and Eddie and wept.

    Anyway, LeAnn and her unemployed idiot of a husband, Eddie Cibrian, appeared on Joan Rivers‘ In Bed With Joan and proceeded to tell the story of how she lost her virginity at 16 to whatever poor ******* was her boyfriend at the time.

    “I think I raped him,” said the classiest lady in country music.

    I THINK I RAPED HIM.

    Yep.

    The immediate thought that comes to mind after hearing that is so obvious (and accurate) we won’t say it… Just watch the video. Ahem.

    LeAnn Rimes blasted for joking she ‘raped’ her boyfriend at age 16

    In what started off a serious interview, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian crawled into bed with Joan Rivers, and Rimes rattled on about her upbringing.

    The singer recalled growing up in the limelight and aspiring to be famous as a young girl. For most of the 15-minute clip, which was part of Rivers’ YouTube series, Cibrian sat quietly beside his wife.

    Then at the end of the “In Bed with Joan” segment, when Rivers asked Rimes about the first time she had sex, her choice of words was raised some eyebrows.

    “I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15?… 16… He was my boyfriend for like three and a half years so yeah, he was fine. I think I raped him. I think that’s how it happened,” she joked.

    Not surprisingly, the Twitterverse didn’t take kindly to Rimes’ quote.

    Users immediately began blasting the country singer for making light of rape.

    Is LeAnn Rimes in cahoots with paparazzi who take all of those beach bikini pics?
    MAY02, 2012

    NEW YORK – LeAnn Rimes has had enough photos taken of her on beaches in bikinis to star in her own calendar.

    The country music singer, much maligned for her scandalous marriage to her co-star Eddie Cibrian (they hooked up on the set of a Lifetime movie while they were married to others), may not be making much music these days, but she sure is a professional at staying in the press.

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Like clockwork new shots of Rimes frolicking on a new beach in a new bikini appear in celebrities weeklies and web sites.

    Here she is in Maui; there she is in Mexico; here she is in Malibu.

    If there’s a beach, there’s a good likelihood Rimes will be on it in a teeny weeny bikini.

    Now some industry insiders are speculating that these pics aren’t paparazzi shots at all, but that Rimes is tipping off the photographers to stage the shots, and maybe even getting a piece of the action for herself.

    The most recent pictures of Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian looking picture perfect on a beach in Cabo San Lucas raised the eyebrows of one skeptical photo editor.

    “Those photographs came into all the magazines and websites fully captioned and saying, ‘LeeAnn Rimes on a trip to renew her vows.’ There is no vow renewing in those pictures,” the industry insider told us. “There is no way the paps would have known she was doing that unless she specifically told them.”

    “Plus the paps just don’t get access like that in Cabo,” the editor added. “They can’t get close enough to the celebrities without permission to get the quality of those photos. They were right next to her. There was no long lens. This was not intrusive in any way. This was a photo shoot.”

    PHOTOS: Country music’s most stylish stars.

    Pics like these demonstrate a truth long known in the magazine industry but hidden from consumers—celebrities are often in cahoots with the paparazzi.

    “There is nothing news worthy about LeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach”
    - Celeb weekly editor
    “There are many celebrities who do everything possible to stay out of the paparazzi’s range yet many others use these photographers as their one-way ticket into glossy magazines. More behind the scenes deals are brokered between photographers and stars than most people think,” explained Dorothy Cascerceri, Senior Editor and television correspondent for In Touch Weekly magazine. “Sometimes celebs allow photo agencies to license their personal photos and other times they contact photo agencies before leaving the house so shutterbugs can snap them taking a ‘casual afternoon stroll.’ Attention-starved C- and D-listers are most well known for tipping off agencies. The paparazzi are as much puppets to some celebs as they are nuisances to others.”

    VOTE: Who wore it best, LeAnn Rimes or Brooklyn Decker?

    Indeed the reasons celebrities hook up with the paps are many. One is to control the kinds of pictures released to the press. Some celebs believe that if they give just a little they can avoid the paparazzi snapping them unaware in an embarrassing situation.

    Another reason to hook up with the paps is to get cash, one of the dirtier little secrets of Hollywood moneymaking. Celebrities often share the proceeds from the sales of their photographs to magazines and websites with the agency that contracts the photographer taking the pictures.

    Insiders said there is a possibility that Rimes is making money off her photos, even though it wouldn’t be big time cash.

    “We see her in a bikini all the time. There is nothing news worthy about LeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach so it isn’t a big money shot,” an editor told us.“It is the equivalent of Jennifer Garner walking down the street with a coffee or maybe just a little bit more. I would say they sell to magazines for $1,000 and to websites for $100 a piece.”

    But if those pictures are purchased by 10 magazines around the world and a hundred websites, that is still a nice chunk of change.

    But perhaps more than the money, such shots help to bolster Rimes’ somewhat tarnished brand which took a hit when she first hooked up with Cibrian while he was married to ‘Beverly Hills Real Housewife’ Brandi Glanville.

    “Her story is defined as being the girl who hooked up with her co-star when they were both married and and she stole this woman’s husband. When you see her frolicking around in the sun it sends the signal this is real relationship just like yours. Maybe it was weird how they got together but now they are just like you,” an editor told us. “There is nothing news worthy about LeeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach but it is another reminder to anyone who will pay attention that she is happy and skinny and still married.”

    Rimes did not respond to our request for comment.

    LeAnn Rimes Makes Rape Joke: I Lost My Virginity When I “Raped” My Boyfriend

    Note to celebs: Rape jokes are never, ever a good idea. LeAnn Rimes put her foot into it once more during a recent appearance with husband Eddie Cibrian on Joan Rivers’ web series In Bed With Joan. In the freewheeling chat, which premiered online earlier this week, the reality TV couple gabbed with the comedienne over cocktails and gamely fielded Rivers’ raunchy questions. Early on in the convo, the country singer, 32, joked that her cocktail “might be roofied.”

    PHOTOS: LeAnn and Eddie’s complicated love story

    A bit later, Rivers, 81, asked the country singer, 32, about losing her virginity. “I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15?” the twice-married “How Do I Live?” singer. “I know, it’s kind of a bulls— story. I was 16. There you go.”

    “Was it nice? Was it bad? Was he nice?” Rivers pressed on.

    “Well, he was my boyfriend for like three and a half years,” Rimes explained. “He was fine. I think I raped him. I think that’s how it happened.”

    Not surprisingly, the backlash was immediate on Twitter. “I thought @leannrimes was just cheap entertainment but her joke about rape proved she’s ignorant trash,” one person Tweeted. “She deserves everything she gets.”

    “It’s not intelligent and VERY offensive to joke about rape @leannrimes,” said another.

    Rimes has yet to directly address the comments.

    The RHOBH stars step out with the rapper in L.A.
    Posted by Jocelyn Vena on Jun 20 – The Dish

    Everyone knows the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills know how to have a good time, so we’re sure when Brandi Glanville and Carlton Gebbia caught up with rapper 50 Cent in L.A. fun was had by all.

    Carlton posted a snapshot of their encounter on her Twitter account. The photo features the ladies, all dolled up in their Beverly Hills finest, flanking the rapper.

    “Of course amazing dinner @craigsla met up w @50cent @BrandiGlanville @etirsa and ridiculous gorgeous girls,” Carlton tweeted about the hangout session. It must have been really entertaining since she even included three smiling lips emoticons at the end of the post.

    LeAnn Rimes Jokes That She Raped Her First Boyfriend

    Apparently LeAnn Rimes is catching some heat/getting some backlash/throwing herself over the line into terrible for making a joke about rape on In Bed with Joan, an interview series with Joan Rivers.

    Appearing with her husband Eddie Cibrian in the short video segment that went up Tuesday, Rimes was responding to a question Rivers asked about when she lost her virginity (it’s at around 12 minutes in the video above) when she made the remark:

    Rimes: I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15? I know, it’s kind of a bullshit story, it’s like oh, please. I was 16. There you go.

    Rivers: Was it nice? Was it bad? Was he nice?

    Rimes: Well, he was my boyfriend for like three and a half years. So he was fine. I think I raped him. I think that’s how it happened.

    Not helping Rimes’s cause is that she started the episode off by immediately making a joke about her drink being roofied.

    THE STIR
    LeAnn Rimes Makes Incredibly Offensive Rape Jokes

    LeAnn Rimes is good at a lot of things. She can sing (her Grammys attest to that) and she can enrage Brandi Glanville quicker than any other woman. The thing she is not good at — cracking jokes. The country crooner-turned-reality TV star is under fire for telling two rape jokes to Joan Rivers … and boy are they in bad taste.

    For the comedianne’s new YouTube series In Bed With Joan, LeAnn and Eddie Cibrian open up like never before. As soon as they sit down and are handed drinks, the singer quips, “This one might be roofied.” Things only get worse later when she’s asked about losing her virginity. “I was in Monte Carlo and I was 15,” she said. “I know, it’s kind of a bullshit story. I was 16. There you go.” Then Joan asked, “Was it nice? Was it bad? Was he nice?”

    There are a million ways she could have handled that answer, but regrettably, this is what she said: “Well, he was my boyfriend for like three and a half years. He was fine. I think I raped him. I think that’s how it happened.”

    Did I miss something? When did rape jokes become funny? Not surprisingly, lots of people were insulted and took to Twitter to let her know how they felt.

    I get that LeAnn is trying to be cool, funny, and relatable. Her reputation has certainly taken a serious hit in recent years. She and Eddie were made out to be cold-hearted, selfish cheaters when they got together while married to other people. I wouldn’t doubt that image rehab is one of the reasons they signed on for that awkward reality show LeAnn and Eddie. But if she wants people to like her, she should choose her quips more carefully.

    Watch the debacle:
