With comparisons to legend Patsy Cline, nobody ever had a bigger Country Music debut than LeAnn Rimes, whose "Blue" immediately shot to the top of the charts in 1996. More hits followed, the awards piled up, and the offers kept coming. She crossed over to other genres, and eventually began acting, again with great success. Then, in 2009, Rimes' world changed forever when photos surfaced of LeAnn with her married "Northern Lights" co-star, Eddie Cibrian. Overnight, Rimes went from being America's Sweetheart to being vilified in the press and hounded by the media. Now, LeAnn Rimes sits down with E!'s Giuliana Rancic for the most frank and candid interview of her career. Join Giuliana as she visits LeAnn and Eddie in their home for an exclusive conversation you won't see anywhere else, when "E! Special: LeAnn Rimes" premieres Sunday, December 9 at 8:00pm ET/PT.
In the new special, both LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian share with Giuliana the intimate facts of their relationship, and how they grew stronger together despite all the criticism and name-calling. LeAnn addresses the childhood she never really had, having given up dolls and playtime for the hard grind of the Country Music circuit at an early age, and how that loss of innocence has plagued her ever since. She talks about the toll her parents' divorce took on her, and the ensuing legal battle she went through with her own father. LeAnn talks about the song she specifically recorded as an apology to her ex, Dean Sheremet, and she addresses head-on the rumors about her noticeable weight loss. Finally, she explains exactly why she decided to admit herself for inpatient treatment for stress and anxiety earlier this year, what she accomplished there, and why it was necessary to save herself from the demons that have tormented her for so long.
Don't miss the riveting story of this musical superstar's fall from grace, and her triumphant new life, when "E! Special: LeAnn Rimes" debuts on Sunday, December 9 at 8:00pm ET/PT only on E!
