TMZ is reporting that LeAnn Rimes has gone into a 30 day rehab to learn to deal with stress and anxiety. Her PR reps told People.com “LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30-day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress. While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms.” Apparently, her previous coping mechanisms of running around the world half-naked and posing for cameras, harassing Brandi Glanville, and generally being a media whore didn’t work out well for her. Shocking!
LeAnn issued a statement saying, “This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be. All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I’m hoping they’re not going to affect me as much … I’ll have the tools to know how to deal with them.” Turning thirty is hard y’all.
I wonder what this is really all about. Trying to rehab her image after spending the last year damaging her reputation and whatever is left of her career? Seeking attention from Eddie whose eye may already be wandering? Something is up because anxiety disorders rarely need a 30-day hospitalization to be treated. Anorexia, maybe. What do y’all think is going on here?
Update: Apparently she will be out of rehab on weekends to “tour” so that she doesn’t disappoint her fans. Which is a crock. Also, there has been a lot of speculation online about Leann and Adderall. I’m gonna call it now that she doesn’t make the 30-days even with the weekends off.
