LeAnn Rimes on Eddie Cibrian affair and anorexia rumors

During an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, LeAnn addressed the scandal that broke out two years ago when it was found that she and current hubby Eddie had an affair.

“You have to really take the high road a lot of the time when you want to stand on a mountain and scream like, Why are you saying this?” she said Thursday.

“We’ve always put his kids first,” she adds, referring to Cibran’s two children from his previous marriage to Brandi Glanville. “We took the kids into consideration with everything that we do. Sometimes you just want to scream. But you don’t. We’ve learned to let it go and laugh at it, at the end of the day.”

As for how she faced the situation, she commented: “It could’ve been handled a lot better. But maybe we both didn’t have the tools at the time to do it properly. But I’ve learned a lot … Obviously we all make choices that lead us into a different path, here and there, and you learn from those or you don’t.”

“It obviously brought us to the place where we are now. And we’re happy, and we’re married. … I think we have both come to a really good place in our lives. And right now, I’m really at peace,” she added.

During the interview, LeAnn also talked about the controversy concerning her weight, claiming that she owes her looks to diet and exercise, not an eating disorder.

She said the media has been “very irresponsible calling a lot of people fat or anorexic or bulimic or whatever it may be. It seems like bullying now instead of really taking these diseases seriously that a lot of people are going through.”
