LeAnn Rimes Talks Wet Nightmares

Man, don't you just want to grab LeAnn Rimes sometimes and shake her and explain to her in a very firm voice what reality is and how it works and how she can use it in her own life? Because this girl can be so out of touch sometimes it's scary. She always seems to think that she never causes any problems in her own life or in her own career or on her own Twitter account, and she's just wrong. She is wrong because she is the worst, and that is just the way it is.
Anyway, she did this new interview, and she talked about -- wait for it -- her awful new reality show and how it is actually making people think differently of her. She thinks that people watch her reality show and go "Huh, I'm glad this set the record straight," which is way different than the perspective of the reasonable people watching the show and going "Huh, I'm glad she's showcased her true terribleness." Let's just get right into the nonsense, OK?
On her drama getting more attention than her music, and how her reality show is supposedly changing that:
"I think, unfortunately, the direction and the conversation have been turned off of music for a while now. With the new show on VH1, and these eight episodes that we filmed, you really do get to see the story that is us and not some soap opera that people have made up because it sells magazines. And it's hard to sit back and not be combative about it, but there's so much and only so many times you can say, 'That's a lie,' because it all is. To be able to take control of it in a way and laugh about it, which we do, has become very much a coping mechanism. So, with the show, the tide is turning, thank goodness, and it makes it harder for people to go, 'Oh my god, they're horrible people,' but to maybe stop and think for a minute. I'm hoping with the show the conversation will turn back to music, because we're like, 'OK, chapter closed.'"
For real, everything's just a great big misconception:
"I think my whole life is really just a misconception. Like I said, we have been drug through so much and portrayed whatever way they (the press) feel works for them that week - and also, there has been a third party (Brandi Glanville, Cibrian's ex-wife) - and so, the whole thing is a misconception. But the good thing about the show is all of these misconceptions kind of just crumble."
"I've always said that Eddie and I are a gay man's wet dream. I sing, you can look at him, and it's perfect."
Sometimes there just aren't enough "ughs" in the world, are there? With the sneaky little swipe at Brandi Glanville and the weird, egotistical wet dream comment, it's just ... it's going to get worse before it gets better and it's probably never, ever going to get better. So let's settle into that, OK? Let's settle into this, LeAnn Rimes, the hottest of messes.
