Back in 2011, LeAnn Rimes got so skinny that you could see her rib cage, but she claimed that she wasn't anorexic… instead, she just wasn't sleeping because of all the stress she was dealing with from the affair she was having with her now hubby Eddie Cibrian.
So in 2012, after she checked into a medical center for "stress and anxiety," she finally opened up about how thin she got, and now she's saying:
“People said I was [anorexic], but I didn’t have a problem with eating as I ate a ton all the time – I could eat my husband under the table! But I was going through a time when I just wasn’t sleeping – my mind wouldn’t shut off and my heart was breaking.
Now I’m secure about my body, although I’m like any other woman and have my moments of self doubt. But it’s nice to have a husband who tells you you’re beautiful all the time. I’ll say to him, ‘I’ve gained a few pounds,’ and he’ll say, ‘Good!
It just gives you another level of confidence. But being in this business, I’ve noticed that image-wise it’s definitely worse for a woman."
We're glad that the country star was eating, but seeing that she was a tiny little thing, we're extra happy about her fuller weight.
LeAnn just looks a lot more healthy when we can't see her bones!! LOLz
