LeAnn Rimes Calls Out Tabloids as 'Bullies'
September 29, 2011
For a while there, we began to wonder if Country star LeAnn Rimes was robbed of all her proper clothing, given all the teeny bikinis she flaunted this summer. A seemingly unforeseen side effect of showing the world her bod became the all rampant name calling, but LeAnn wants everyone to know she's not taking the abuse laying down.
"It's almost bullying," LeAnn tells Ellen Degeneres of the tabloid's use of eating disorders to describe her thin frame. "They've been very irresponsible calling a lot of people, fat or anorexic or bulimic or whatever it may be. It seems like bullying now instead of really taking these diseases seriously that a lot of people are going through."
Rimes denies any sort of eating disorder, but says she's "kind of gotten over" being ticked off at the mags.
