You know, I like LeAnn Rimes, I really, really, really do.
You know why? Because her life makes my life seem so darn normal and boring.
Yesterday LeAnn was engaged. Today, not so much. And on top of being engagement-ring-less, she's also fighting mad at E! News and at the rest of us ninnies in the media.
LeAnn posted a long Tweet yesterday:
“Ok, I’ve about had it with the lack of “reporting” with E News. The fact that our “engagement” has spread so furiously over the past 24 hours off of an E News article that is 150% untrue just shows you the lack of credible “sources” they seem to find and build a story around. When CNN is calling my publicist off of a lie E News has reported, the media world seriously has a problem with their lack of responsibility to the public to actually report the truth. Even though this is positive “news” its not true. Imagine all the negative “true stories” they’ve reported over the last year that aren’t true either. Gina Serpe and especially, Whitney English reporting for E News should be investigated for their lack of “investigative reporting.”Eddie and I are beyond happy and in love and look forward to one day sharing such private news with you all and hopefully will be able to enjoy it privately and share it with our family and friend’s before the world knows (contrary to reports on our intentions). So, nothing has been “exclusively” broken E News except maybe some of your credibility, sorry…I’M PREGNANT TOO!!! LOL Thanks to all of our wonderful fans for the premature congats, but for now, let’s all be happy we’re happy and still and will remain together! Eddie and I felt we couldn’t let this rumor go on any longer.”
Okay, I do actually get the point of why she's angry, but I think being engaged is a lot better press than a lot of what she's gotten over the last year and a half or so so I'm not sure I'd be too terribly angry if I were her. Of course, I suppose a lie is a lie and she has a right to be angry.
Of course, E! is hitting back in a not so polite way saying that LeAnn and Eddie are angry not because the engagement story was a lie but because it cost them some cash out of their pockets.
A source close to the couple tells E! News that Rimes and Cibrian are "pissed" that the engagement news broke, since they were planning to cash in on their personal life by giving the exclusive to another outlet, complete with happy couple photos and the now requisite "over the moon" pullout quotes.
Uhmmm, ouch. This story just gets better and better, I swear.
Yep, my life is so darn boring….thank goodness.
