LeAnn Rimes Swears: I Am NOT Anorexic!

by at . Comments

LeAnn Rimes says she feels bullied by weight critics.

At the same time, she gets an awful lot of press because of said critics and by going back and forth on Twitter with them and speaking out on television.

Just saying.

Eddie Cibrian's wife says, in an interview with the AP, that her weight has definitely gone up and down, but doesn't see this as a reason to be concerned.

"[When I] was going through a divorce, I couldn't get out of bed... I gained 10 pounds, then I lost 10 pounds because I'm moving around and working," she said.

"I don't stop, and no one sees that [a woman's weight loss] actually can happen like naturally. It's a natural progression of life."

"It has to be some big deal and some issue," the country star added. "I'm glad there are people out there that are smarter than that and they don't buy into it."

"I was told when I was little I couldn't have an opinion because you want everyone to buy your record and like you," she said. "I'm not gonna apologize."

No one asked her to, but good to know.

In an interview with The Ellen DeGeneres Show last month, Rimes addressed the rumors, once again, that she was struggling with an eating disorder.

"[The press has] been very irresponsible [about] calling a lot of people fat or anorexic or bulimic or whatever it may be," she said. "It seems like bullying now ... instead of really taking these diseases seriously that a lot of people are going through."

We can't argue with her on that point.
