*Updated* Our interview was featured on Radaronline 11/14/2012!
As many of us already know, Leann Rimes had an affair with her now husband Eddie Cibrian. Cibrian admitted to having an affair with Rimes while the pair was still married to other people. I have read countless articles pertaining to the Leann Rimes saga, and have yet to gain one ounce of sympathy for her. The old saying rings true, “You did this to yourself”. Of course, Leann has her supporters and I am certain they defend her, I mean, “You can’t help who you fall in love with right?” This statement has always bothered me. In my opinion, in order to fall “in love” with someone, you must have some form of intimate relationship with that person. If you or the other person is married, you should not attempt any form of intimate relationship and therefore, you will be unable to fall in love! One would think that would be “Common sense”, but it seems as though many women and men have little to no respect or regard for other people, nevertheless themselves.
Yes, in my opinion, Leann Rimes is a Homewrecker! She knowingly pursued a married man with a family! Not only did she pursue him while they both were still married, it was stated in the media that she dined with Eddie Cibrian and his wife, Brandi Glanville, (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) on several occasions! Talk about a slap in the face! Apparently, stealing Brandi’s husband just wasn’t enough for Leann. It has been alleged that Leann Rimes created a fake twitter account called @wewenlove and bullied Brandi from it. It has also been alleged that she rewarded some of her twitter followers with tickets, signed autographs and gifts at Christmas time in return for directing negative comments to Brandi Glanville’s twitter.
There are many people who believe Leann Rimes has quite the unhealthy obsession with Twitter. Perhaps her alleged obsession with the popular social media site can be blamed for her ridiculous lawsuit against Kimberly Smiley, a High School teacher and mother of 6, for invasion of privacy after she allegedly tape recorded a telephone conversation with Leann Rimes.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with @Blockedbyleann a close friend and supporter to Kim Smiley, pertaining to the frivolous lawsuit Leann Rimes is pursuing against Mrs. Smiley.
Ariella: Where you ever a fan of Leann Rimes?
@Blockedbyleann: “I am a fan of Leann Rimes music from her early years.”
Ariella: If you where a fan, did your opinion of Leann Rimes change after her affair was made public?
@Blockedbyleann: “Absolutely. I personally went through a very similar situation and had a “Leann” in my life. Just like he did me he did her and now he has moved on to his 4th wife. My personal belief is if you support someone who engages in activities you disapprove of you are no better yourself!”
Ariella: How did this war between you and Leann Rimes start?
@Blockedbyleann: “I started a twitter account almost 2 years ago. I was not following Leann Rimes or Brandi Glanville at the beginning. I answered a survey from a gossip site asking which one Leann or Brandi looked better in a bikini. I answered Brandi. I then went on to follow Brandi. While reading her mentions I began learning of the twitter war between her and Leann. I went to follow Leann so I could keep up with the BS she was spewing. That is when I found out I was blocked. This all transpired within 2 days time so I can only assume Leann either blocked everyone who answered Brandi in the survey or by trolling Brandi’s followers and blocking everyone from there. Because I never once followed Leann Rimes. From that point, I just started a new account and followed her from there so I could learn more. I became very intrigued due to the similarities with my ex and his homewrecker. After learning of the huge amount of people Leann blocks I thought it would be fun to start a parody type account. I never expected to take off like it has. I basically see right through her narcissistic tweets and pathological lies. I have no problem publicly proving them via twitter. She is surrounded by “yes” people that when she sees someone react negatively to her she becomes highly offended. I find it quite funny since she is the one who has acted inappropriately and doesn’t understand why people don’t like her. It is not just the affair either; her behavior towards her step son’s mother is atrocious! She over steps her boundaries, she taunts and antagonizes Brandi. She has on many occasions referred to the boys as hers and Eddie’s. She posts pictures of them via twitter and on her Spitfire Social Club after being asked repeatedly by their mother to not do so. She was caught paying the paparazzi to come take pictures of her at the boy’s soccer game. I have that twitter picture saved. The camera man tried to delete the tweet but a quick thinking friend took a screen shot of it before he did. These are just a few examples of the clearly unstable actions of Leann Rimes. A book could actually be written.”
Ariella: How has this lawsuit affected your life?
@Blockedbyleann: “Personally it hasn’t affected me, but it has affected my friend Kim and her daughter Lexi. They are being lied about and this suit has been filed on baseless information and I can’t wait for the Judge to hear Kim’s side. I have a feeling he will be pretty upset with Leann Rimes and her attorney. They claim it was a set up and I can promise you it was not. I can also promise you that the tape was not edited nor was it released online by Kim Smiley or her daughter Lexi. The only basis for the suit they have is the recording, and that was done out of fear for what Leann Rimes was going to say. She started the conversation out with “This is Leann bitch, you have 5 minutes to say whatever you want to me” and the cursing ensued to the point where Kim felt like she needed to protect herself by recording the conversation. On Leann Rimes end it was on speaker phone with 2 of her friends she met via twitter in a public and crowded restaurant. There was no privacy expected by Leann Rimes. She did not make that call expecting to make peace with Kim or she wouldn’t have started the conversation out the way she did.”
Ariella: Who are the “Team Smiley’s” and how was that started?
@Blockedbyleann: “Well, they are thousands of people who support an innocent teacher, mother, wife and citizen! As soon as I heard of the lawsuit, I along with several others tweeted Team Smiley tweets and it just took off from there. We are behind our friend 100% and will do whatever it takes to prove Leann Rimes is the guilty one.”
Ariella: Do you believe Leanne Rimes is abusing her status as a celebrity (pertaining to the lawsuit)?
@Blockedbyleann: “Most definitely! Look at her history; she couldn’t buy her dad, Curb Records, Brandi or Kim with money so she files a frivolous lawsuit. She stated during the suit with her father that she would win the judge over by crying on cue, she also said she hated her father when she lost! She can’t stand to lose and she will lie, cheat and steal to keep from doing so! These are not accusations these are actions she has committed previously and have been well documented!”
Ariella: If you had to do this all over, would you do anything differently?
@Blockedbyleann: “Sometimes it gets frustrating when you see a person with a lot of money getting away with these things and I think why bother? But then I think about the tweets from other exes as well as just people with a basic set of good values and morals who say to me “Thank you for what you do”, as well as my own beliefs pushing me to open twitter and stand up and speak out for what I believe in! I am by far a “Bully” as Leann tries to abuse that term with us. This is America, freedom of speech is still allowed and I am protesting on a public site my dislike for home wreckers, step mothers who over step their boundaries as well as celebrities who think they can buy friendships and fans. In one interview Leann claims that she had to go to rehab over the bullying she endures on twitter, but her rep stated to Gossip Cop and I quote “There is absolutely no truth to that story whatsoever.” the reason for her going to rehab is stress due to a new album and tour plans.”
