LeAnn Rimes, Jake Cibrian


LeAnn Rimes doesn't obsess about her body nearly as much as the media does.

In a new interview with Fabulous magazine, the 30-year-old country star says she doesn't think she's "ever gone to an extreme with working out or my eating."

Eddie Cibrian's wife also addressed the alarmingly thin photos of her that surfaced in 2011. "I never tried to lose weight, and I never tried to gain it. It depends on how stressed I am. I was eating a ton and couldn't put on weight!"

While Cibrian and her family weren't concerned about her weight at any point, they are pleased with her newfound curves. "But being from the South, my mom and godmother are always happier when I have a little meat on my bones," she said.

"I'm secure with my body," she added. "Trust me, there are moments when I've stood in the mirror and gone, 'Oh my God, I'm getting cellulite!' But then I stand in a different light and I'm, like, 'Oh, it's not so bad now.' I have my moments, like every woman."

One woman Rimes has clearly had some issues with is Cibrian's ex-wife, Brandi Glanville. "It's been really difficult," she admitted. "You have to stand up for yourself and be your own person, but at the same time you have to protect these children and their hearts. And that's a very tough balance."

Those children are Cibrian and Glanville's sons—Jake, 5, and Mason, 9. "They have been very accepting," she said. "It's taken a while to feel like it's not just Eddie and the two boys and then me. But I do feel that's happening, and the love that I have for them is tremendous."

As for what Rimes' stepsons call her? "Lee," she said. "Sometimes they'll blurt out, 'Mom!', but I just go with whatever they call me. As long as it's nice and respectful, I couldn't care less."
