Leanne Rimes is not a Stepmother!
Okay… she is — but please don't call her that. The headline making Courtney Music star hates the word "step." She recently let out all her frustrations with the word in a personal blog entry.
"Step… Stepmother, Stepfather, Stepchildren — the word 'step' can take on such a negative connotation to so many in our society."
Leann inherited two boys when she married her current husband, Eddie Cibrian. The still blogging, the singer talks about the obstacles of having a what she calls a "blended family." She said:
"It’s not easy being a stepparent, taking on a mother or father role in your new blended family and household. It can be incredibly intimidating. There are many obstacles to overcome. Two households with different rules, many different personalities and opinions that can pose issues at times. But it’s important to take the high road for the kids’ sake and ultimately your own.”
'One thing that I know is, I will never replace their mother. I would never try. I will however love them with all I have and do everything in my power to help raise them in a loving, safe and proper environment.”
Wow, she really seems to love her… um… blended kids!
Our only note: it's a little tacky to blog about any differences you and your husband's ex wife may have — especially when you two had a very public affair.
We give Leann an A+ is
stepparenting, and D in second wifing.
