However, sometimes these attackers- because they are anonymous- can get a little out of hand, as it seems to be here. People on the internet are often very cruel, more so than they would be in real life. Leann should have turned off her computer long ago if the negative press and personal attacks have been getting to her for as long as she says they have. Why voluntarily subject yourself to harsh criticism and character defamation? Many celebrities never purchase gossip magazines and never search themselves on google because most tabloid press is negative (and false) and they don't need that in their lives.

I hope Leann receives proper treatment for her issues. I hope people turn a corner and become more respectful of her choices, marriage, personality, etc. I hope cyber bullying diminishes into oblivion. But the reality of it is, some people are very mean on the internet. Turn the computer off.

I think shes really being treated for an eating disorder (anorexia) and doesnt want to admit thats what it is because then it would prove everyone else right. Shes been saying she's "healthy" all along while everyone worried about her extreme weightloss. I'm sure she does have emotional issues. Afterall, thats what leads to things like eating disorders.

As you alluded to, the beauty of being an adult who gets cyber-bullied is that you can turn off your computer and those people resume their status as strangers to you. This is generally not a privilege that school-aged children get, as these cyber bullies are often their classmates or peers and they see them every day. The merciless taunting doesn't start or end on the internet for students.

Leann can be of the opinion that her personal and professional lives are two different things, and that the public should not interfere with her personal life. While this is generally true, it isn't in the world of celebrity. The lines between professional life and personal life are blurred, so both regularly make news. Leann should have expected some backlash when she cheated on her husband with a married man and caused the breakup of both marriages. She should have expected there to be negative consequences on her career and a diminished fan base after the news went public. J
