Remember when LeAnn Rimes was anorexic? I mean…. anorexic-looking? Allegedly? Well apparently, LeAnn was NEVER anorexic, but instead lost all that weight because she was under immense pressure surrounding her personal life.
“People said I was [anorexic], but I didn’t have a problem with eating, as I ate a ton all the time — I could eat my husband under the table!” she tells the U.K. publication. “But I was going through a time when I just wasn’t sleeping — my mind wouldn’t shut off and my heart was breaking.”
That heartbreak was a result of her very public affair two years earlier with now-husband Eddie Cibrian. As first revealed by Us Weekly, Rimes, 30, and Cibrian, 39, met on the set of Northern Lights in 2009 when both were still married to other people — she to dancer Dean Sheremet, he to future Real Housewife Brandi Glanville. They fell in love and eventually tied the knot, but the last few years have not been easy.
Rimes describes the period after their affair as a “turbulent” one. “To say I’ve been on several roller coasters is an understatement,” she admits to the Daily Mail.
These days, though, she’s in a much healthier place, both emotionally and physically. At least part of that is attributable to her decision last August to enter a 30-day rehab program for “anxiety and stress” issues. The other part, she says, is thanks to the support she gets from Cibrian. NEW BIKINI PIC AFTER THE JUMP – CONTINUE READING! (more…)
