SH “HIT AND RUN” SATURDAY: Update on LeAnn Lawsuit…Not Good For Image…DUH!

September 1, 2012  12:30 pm

 LeAnn Rimes… 2009

As mentioned yesterday, LeAnn Rimes is going after a little buzzing fly with an atom bomb when she either should have simply ignored the fly or used a fly swatter.  Filing a lawsuit against the woman whom LeAnn initiated the phone call will push her way down in any popularity polls; do nothing for her Q rating and reinforce the school teacher’s, who LeAnn is suing, opinion/statement that LeAnn is off the rails.

A crisis management expert had this to say to ROL:

“Filing the lawsuit against this alleged tape of her bullying the teacher is not going to play well for her image,” he predicted. “Sometimes legal action doesn’t quell the crisis, it elevates the crisis, even more so when you use your money, your celebrity and your power to put the person in a check mate position – legally speaking that doesn’t bode well for your celebrity, especially when you look at where she comes from, the country music world is a very-heartfelt, warm community.”

  LeAnn Rimes… 1998

Who are the people behind LeAnn filing a lawsuit?  Or, did LeAnn do this on her own?  Cannot imagine ANY PR person insisting that LeAnn file a lawsuit, knowing the fallout from filing.  It seems that LeAnn may have contacted her attorneys on her own in the heat of the moment, asking them if she has any legal recourse after the taped conversation was released.

OF COURSE, the attys are going to jump on this!  LeAnn has some deep pockets and that’s all any attys care about… are deep pockets.  Attorneys don’t care how this will affect LeAnn personally; but, they had something to go on, which is an illegally taped conversation between LeAnn and CA school teacher.

IMO, LeAnn was embarrassed by what was said in the course of the conversation and sought revenge.  LeAnn contacted her attys… and with anger and embarrassment swirling around her, and after her attys told LeAnn to go after the CA school teacher and her 19-year-old daughter… LeAnn directed them to file suit.  WRONG!   LeAnn got herself involved in a “David v Goliath” bungled mess.

The entire matter is a bit cra-cra.  WHY did LeAnn call this person?  WHY did the CA school teacher engage in a conversation with LeAnn?  WHY did the CA school teacher make assumptions about Brandi Glanville… as if she’s a personal friend?  WHY does LeAnn care about what anyone on says twitter??

From what is briefly known about LeAnn Rimes… she filed for emancipation from her parents at age 16; a few years later married Dean Shermet; while still married to Dean, met Eddie Cibrian making a Lifetime movie; LeAnn and Eddie both divorced their spouses and married each other… and LeAnn is only 30!

Sounds like LeAnn does not need the advice of an attorney… it sounds like LeAnn needs her parents.  Sounds like LeAnn has no where to turn… a 30-day rehab stay will not provide a parents’ unconditional understanding.

LeAnn needs to drop the lawsuit ASAP… and maybe spend some time away from the center of the storm… maybe with her parents.

  1. Lee Ann needs to stay out of the public eye & the press & off Twitter. At 30 she hardly needs her Mommy & Daddy. She screwed up by cheating on her ex husband & getting involved with another woman’s husband. Eddie Cibrian has a reputation as a puss hound in Hollywood. Before too long he will dump this country corn pone has been & move on. Lee Ann will be a wreck & then call her parents or go to rehab. She better hope that the next hot young thing Fast Eddie nails isn’t as mean to her as she was to Brandi Glanville.


  2. Good point about the parents, SH. I was thinking about this today… whatever happened to that beautiful child with the amazing voice?! She’s going crazy….


  3. LeeAnn is sowing what she reaps and no amount of fancy pay-your-way rehab on her lack of morals is gonna help her. Unless she has at least one true friend with a soul and sense of right and wrong that she will listen to; her path downhill is just beginning. She is losing it all, love, marriage, fans, her soul; going,going, gone. Yes, it is real sad and hard to watch


  4. The more I read about this, the more I agree that this lawsuit was filed out of anger and embarrassment. Even the legal issue of recording the conversation may get a little murky. Not only do I think her lawsuit will get thrown out, but I think with a good (aka dirty) lawyer might be able to come up with a counter suit. So she will have ruined her reputation (well even more), paid a lawyer for nothing, and then possibly pay out money to her “harasser”. This is going to hurt! My mother always told me it is sometimes better to just ignore people. Maybe hers should have taught her that lesson as well.


  5. Not that I approve of her life or anything and I think eddie sucks, but imagine going insane reading the crap about you day and night and just wanting to a bitch off for once! you might lose your damn mind and then s hits the fan


  6. LeAnn definitely made a huge mistake with Eddy. He is a scum bag! Yes, she should have used better judgment. If even some of what has been written about the way that both she and Eddy treat Brandi, they both deserve some heartache. It must be incredibly difficult to have achieved fame and fortune at such a young age.These young stars just do not have the opportunity to experience life and to mature normally. On top of that, so often they have family that takes advantage of them. I hope that LeAnn can pull herself together and move on. As for Eddy, his career seems to have tanked. For one, he is not a very good actor and on top of that, I don’t think that the public likes him much.


    • Eddie’s looking kinda old these days. Lots of gray in that beard. Living with LeAnn must be a nightmare. Serves him right though!


        • he actually didn’t leave his wife she kicked him out he begged her not to. I know because it was reported. A second mistress came forward to a tabloid about how Eddie was also cheating with her and claiming to be in love with her and that is when Brandi decided it was not worth it to try and make their marriage work.


  7. At first I thought this suit was against Brandi, now I see that it is against a woman and her daughter over a phone convo. This is just revolting. A 19 year old doesn’t need a lawsuit over petty crazy LeAnn. Many schools do background checks, and anything can stop you from being admitted and literally ruin your future. LeAnn already ruined her life, she needs to stop with her self-obssessed craziness and go fade away like other has-beens.
