Your lifestyle, your quirk
Just one day after turning 30, LeAnn Rimes decided she needed hardcore professional help dealing with the stresses of being a b-lister. The country singer’s representative confirmed that Rimes admitted herself into a 30-day rehab program to learn how to cope with high levels of anxiety and stress.
“While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms,” Rimes’ representative told People magazine’s website. “While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated.”
Unabashed by facing the public about her rehab stint, Rimes personally talked with the folks at People’s website as well. She said, “This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be. All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I'm hoping they're not going to affect me as much. I'll have the tools to know how to deal with them.”
Honestly, it does surprise me a bit that Rimes is taking this step. Sure, she has weathered an impressive amount of negative – and sometimes downright mean – press and feedback from the public over her relationship with now-husband Eddie Cibrian, as they met while both married to other people, and engaged in an affair before splitting from their wedded partners in order to be together. Cibrian also has two children with his ex-wife. Sure, Rimes and Cibrian were both acting like homewreckers, but LeAnn has – by far – taken more public heat for it.
Rimes also sparked controversy when her weight seemingly suddenly plummeted last year before her wedding to Cibrian. Of course, the dramatic weight loss caused numerous eating disorder rumors, all of which Rimes has strongly denied.
It seems LeAnn is scrutinized heavily – even by celebrity standards – for every move she makes since being with Cibrian. However, she is always photographed with a beaming smile, appearing to be having fun with her new husband and stepchildren. She also regularly tweets updates filled with optimism and positive words. But is it all an act? Is she trying to convince herself that she is happier than she is? I wouldn’t blame her for a second if she were cracking under the pressure of the negative press.
I’m sure LeAnn will have plenty to share after her rehab stint. Maybe she will be a changed woman. She is, after all, a mature 30 now.
