"I was bullied when I was a kid -- when I was in junior high. A lot of girls can get real mean during the sixth grade year. I used to perform around Dallas and Texas where I lived, a lot. My principal would put something on the bulletin board if I was in the newspaper or something, and there was this clique of girls that did not like it. So, I had my locker egged, I had a girl bring a knife to school the last day of sixth grade and tried to kill me! Awesome. So, I'd say I was bullied a little."

--LeAnn Rimes recounts the exact moment that she became intolerable to the rest of the world.

No, no, that's a rough story. Of course LeAnn got bullied in junior high -- it's junior high. That's what happens, and it's not fun, but it's definitely true. But the knife part, it's just ... don't you think we would have heard about this by now if it were true? Like, wouldn't the attempted murder of LeAnn Rimes be a thing? She released her first album when she was 13, so not long after this knife attack would have taken place, and this is the first we're hearing of it? During an interview that was done after she performed at an anti-bullying benefit?

LeAnn, girl, sorry for your hardships, and sorry for doubting you if you really were almost knifed to death in middle school, but honestly? Maybe try for something a little more believable next time.

"Awesome. So, I'd say I was bullied a little." Weren't we all? If this little tale of being bullied is supposed to make me feel empathy for the woman and like her, it didn't work.

I wouldn't have thought that a tale of being bullied could actually make me want to bully someone but lo and behold, I now want to shove Leann Rimes into a locker and egg her face.

I went to middle school with her. Brandenburg Middle School in Garland, TX did NOT have a school bulletin board. No one egged her locker. No one brought a knife to school to stab her. The only thing that happened was Leann going on and on about being on Star Search and that is why everyone hated her. She flaunted things in people's faces back then, too.

How can you tell if someone is a pathological liar? Listen to Leann and you will know it.

I, like many others, do not like LeAnn Rimes...
But, imagine, all these Gossip & Bully sites...
Thanks to, say, the inspiration of old Perez Hilton...
Tearing down, mocking, ridiculing and all around bullying...
People who happen to be 'famous', that are wealthy, et al...
Yes, some are media wh*res, tedious, and not deserving...
But, how's this any different than your basic true bullying...
It isn't. Imagine you had to sitting face to face, with ANYONE...
Saying these things to them... See the hurt you cruilty caused...
Know, you crushed another person, just because...
These sites, this type of Celeb-ashing... Is TOXIC.
We are better than this. We should be better.
The author, insinuating a lie about stabbings...
Horrible. We are adults, we need to be...
BETTER THN THIS.

this gal is grasping at straws...I don't care what happened to her in grade school and quite frankly I don't care to know what's happening with her not, because she's less of a musician and now a publicity skank.

I have never liked LeAnn and every time she talks about her step-children's private life I like her even less. I don't care for Brandi either but LeAnn shouldn't be telling anything about the children,if there parents decide to publicly speak about there children then that is there right,not LeAnn's. if she truly was bullied in school she should know that exposing the boys lives can lead to the same thing that she went through happening to them.

It's really sad that this young lady has to lie and use others for attention. Nashville laughs at her and her music today sounds terrible. Can't understand a word she sings, and the jerk motions are just so unattractive. She sings and dances like a monkey on stage, where is her PR team, who can only get her booked at failed venues now from reports you see all over. She married a 3-4 time loser who has lost his acting gigs also. Guess she has to sell the step kids for money to pay the bills. It's sad when you can't make it on your own Leann.
