Scary Skinny…or Jealousy?

Leann Rimes’ fans aren’t used to seeing her fit and trim. They’re all used to seeing the country starlet with a slightly fuller figure, and they remember her as a young teenager singing her first hit “Blue” looking healthy and happy.

In this day and age, with the controversy surrounding the pop culture’s pressure to get so skinny that photographers can see the protrusion of bones that should never be seen, it’s understandable when a star gets drastically skinny and starts looking unhealthy. Rimes’ new husband Eddie Cibrian was previously married to a woman who fits that description. Well, the couple recently went on their honeymoon and Leeann posted pictures on her Twitter account – immediately drawing shocked comments from followers who admonished her for being too skinny. One of the few that Leeann actually replied to remarked that she could see the singer’s ribs.

Now…I’m an EMT. I’ve taken more than one anatomy class and I was very good at anatomy. Even the advanced classes were cake for me. I’m looking at all of these photos, and I’m here to tell you, right now, those are not ribs. That is a rockin’ set of abs. Something lit a fire under this girl and she toned up incredibly well for her wedding and honeymoon. If she really were doing something unhealthy, I’d be standing up and saying something, too. I don’t think she deserves to be added to the witch hunt, though. She personally wanted to look better so she worked at it and achieved it eventually. Isn’t that exactly the lesson we want our kids to learn?

So relax, folks – enjoy the view.

You go, Leeann. Enjoy yourself.

  1. Kirsten Powers, an Alaskan herself, nails it in her NY Post cmluon today. I submit to you the last three short paragraphs.=== The other potential trap is luring the Obama campaign onto the experience field. The early conventional wisdom says McCain’s pick was boneheaded because it takes the experience issue off the table. But it seems that it has done the opposite: The importance of experience is the topic of the day. The more Democrats complain about this, the more Republicans can turn it on them and say, If you are so concerned about the amount of experience of the vice president, what about the top of your ticket? Obama’s argument thus far has been that experience isn’t what counts; it’s judgment. By attacking the Republican woman relentlessly on this issue, Democrats are undermining their own man.
