She’s not the most popular woman in showbiz thanks to her affair with Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimes’ cover spot on the October issue of Shape magazine has caused some trouble.
Editor-in-Chief Valerie Latona was quoted as saying some pretty unsavory things about the “Can’t Fight the Moonlight” songstress, but she says it was all out of context and meant to quell the complaints she received from readers.
Latona explained, “My comments have been taken out of context. I used the words of a few unhappy readers who wrote in.” Valerie supposedly said she felt Rimes’ cover was a ‘terrible mistake.’
She continued, “I stand by the fact that LeAnn’s story is compelling–and her courage and strength in the face of so much adversity is compelling. That is why I put her on the cover of Shape for what is now the third time.”
“The fact is a mere 40 readers out of almost 6 million readers wrote in to complain calling LeAnn a ‘husband stealer’ and a ‘terrible mistake for Shape.’ 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.”
Back in the States following her concert duties in Niagara Falls, Rimes accompanied boyfriend Eddie Cibrian for a family outing in Calabasas, CA on Sunday (October 24).
The singer and her actor beau escorted his son’s Mason and Jake to Mason’s soccer team photo shoot before heading off to partake in a kiddie birthday party.
In related news, Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville was recently arrested for drunk driving.
According to a report, the 36-year-old divorcee was pulled over just after midnight on Thursday morning while driving on Sunset Boulevard in Beverly Hills.
From there, Ms. Glanville was given a field sobriety test after officers detected the smell of alcohol. She failed it and was arrested.
Brandi was released on $5000 bail and left the Beverly Hills police station around 8:21 on Thursday morning.
