She's blonde and hot! Didn't think I'd ever use those two words in the same sentence.

Is this another way of saying that her music isn't as popular as it once was?

A friend saw her in concert recently and said it was really bad. LeAnn couldn't hit the high notes and was just barely grazing the others. She seemed to be reading the lyrics off the floor and raced through each number. Sad to be a has-been before the age of 30.

Yeah, I'd hit it. I've always had a soft spot for skanks that will do anything for attention

LeAnn Rimes nailed Patsy Cline's BLUE at age 14 but failed miserably with her cover of CRAZY, probably because she tried to do it her way. BLUE was a carbon copy of the original but with better recording technology and is a gem. If she's going to re-do BLUE faster and jazzier it will be a failure. Bet money on it.

Ms Rimes has a beautiful voice and the number she did with the GMCLA is beyond wonderful.Her personal life is none of our business.If we go by who has affairs we wouldn't be able to listen to Cash and Carter,Garth and Trisha,Shelton and Lambert and on and on and on.Keep singing Ms Rimes,we folks that love a great voice will be listening.

Her personal life is not personal when Leann broadcasted it on twitter for a long time. She boasted on twitter about her happiness that came at the expense of hurt caused to two good people. She went on ABC and said she had no regrets and that it happens everyday. Murders happen everyday and that doesn't make it right.

Which also brings back memories of how she denied the affair until there was pics and video. Then she taunted the ex-wife on twitter and has continued to try to become the ex-wife. Leann doesn't even look like herself anymore. Don't want to listen to a voice of a bad thing.

Leann can't compare herself to any one else because none of the others have acted as she as by playing the victim or by taking pride in the hurt she has caused others.

Does Leann not understand that twitter is a PUBLIC FORUM (and if she was truly interested in keeping her personal life different from her career, she would close that twitter account) and that everytime she makes a post about "her sweets" and the "lil ones" she is making her personal life everyone's business? If her personal life is no one's business, then someone needs to tell her to stop tipping off the paps so that they can "candid" shots of her and Eddie on a boat as she flashes that engagement ring that Eddie had his child support reduced to pay for. She says that her personal life and her career are two different things, yet when people question why she is constantly telling all the details of her life (which includes many tweets about how she is having sex with EC), she says she is telling the details of her life because it's apart of promoting her career. If her career and personal life were different, why then does she use her affair and relationship with EC to promote her career? Her engagement fell on the same week that her single was released on Itunes. Her photo-ops with EC even coincide with her concerts. Who wants to bet that her wedding falls just in time for her album release. So if her personal life is no one's business, perhaps LR should start by not giving interviews to ABC, People mag, and Shape about how she is so happy and in love with man who allows her to exploit his kids for her career(see LR radio interview where she talks about therapy for EC kids because her personal life is no one's business).

When did Leann apologize or take responsibility for her actions? When she did that People mag interview where she says that she doesn't regret the outcome of her affair with EC? Or was it when she did that Shape mag interview where she says that she had a right to be selfish because she took care of people all of her life? Or was it when she did that ABC interview where she trivilized affairs and practically blamed BG and DS because she and EC were too not respectful enough to end their marriages? Leann's "remorse" only happens when she has something to promote. So does this mean that LR is "sorry" because she is planning on releasing the video to her single very soon? If she were human, made a mistake, or truly sorry was does she continue to be so disrespectful and insensitive to BG, DS, and EC kids?

I will no longer ever support someone who can sit there and wear 85,000 of child support money on her ring finger when that money was returned to her fiancé due to his divorce papers requiring a refund should he decide not to work/get a normal job since his acting is terrible and he’s not getting hired any more. I would be embarrassed if a child had to withdraw from preschool and move out of his second home in a year just so that my fiancé could buy me a ring. That man is a pig and so is Leann for being associated with him and the way she carried on with the situation.

Who the hell cares. Just another wash out after being shoved out to gather cash from the stupid who think country music is music and not the noise of inbreeders.

"Honestly, it's no one's business"

WHAT ABOUT THE ROBIN ROBERTS INTERVIEW YOU CHEATING HILLBILLY TWIT?

You go on national television to talk about your personal life with Robin Roberts to suit your purposes, but then say it's none of the public's business. You're too stupid for words. Get another boob job.

Its not right was Leann and Eddie have done and continue to do, but it seems most people like to make comments from their own positions of purity. Go ahead and cast that first stone.
