To quote Kyle Broflovski's mom in South Park, "What, what WHAT!?"
Guess that helps to explain why the singer suddenly checked into rehab on her birthday to learn how to cope with "anxiety and stress."
Rimes, who has been criticized for both her figure and her affair with Eddie Cibrian while he was married to Brandi Glanville, reportedly called the Northern California mom when she eating lunch with a few of her Twitter fans on March 26. One woman eating lunch with the country star knew Smiley and made the phone call so Rimes could start off the strange convo with:
"Hey bitch, this is LeAnn you have 5 minutes to say whatever you want to me!"
The teacher continued to claim:
"LeAnn called me because she believed that telling me her side, would change my mind … she said she thought that I could relate to her situation of being a non-biological parent."
Amidst her profanity-laden convo with Smiley, Rimes even invited her to hang out so she could get to know "the real" her. The former fan even says they "spoke about her obsession with Twitter and Rimes claims it's not a problem."
Umm…LeAnn, if you're calling complete strangers, than IT IS a problem.
We're VERY concerned by this unexpected news, which is even more shocking than the singer's 30-day stay in rehab. If what Smiley says is true, than we sincerely, sincerely, SINCERELY hope she's getting the help she needs during treatment.
