"I feel like I am starting over even though I've had all these years behind me," she says. "How many people get to [start] over in this day and age?"

In the interview, which airs tomorrow, Rimes also discusses how her relationship with Eddie Cibrian made her a target for bullies - and celeb gossip tabloids.

The 30-year-old says she's under constant scrutiny: “People look at you and go, 'Why are you struggling?' … No one can quite understand why you hurt so badly."

LeAnn Rimes bullying has been going on for awhile now.

Over time, she says, it can be overwhelming: "It's hard to take it day after day of reading and seeing things that someone you don't even know says about you."

"As much as you stay strong and say you don't want it to penetrate, it does, because you're human."
