LeAnn Rimes checks into rehab for ‘anxiety’

CELEBRITIES love a bit of rehab don’t they? In our godless society, rehabs are the next best thing where famous folk can ostensibly show some kind of redemptive attitude for their nefarious ways. Basically, rehab is a confession booth without having the sore knees.

The latest sleb to check-in is LeAnn Rimes who has gone for issues surrounding “anxiety and stress” according to tittle tattlers, People.

“LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30 day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress. While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated,” her rep sensibly said in a statement. The rep was keen to underline that this wasn’t treatment for an eating disorder or substance abuse.

Of course, because no-one actually said anything about eating disorders or substance abuse, we’ll now gleefully assume that she’s booked in to sort both problems out.

“This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be,” said Rimes (no relation to Busta). Her husband (also not Busta) said: “My wife is the most remarkable and courageous woman I know. I am so proud of her for having the strength to finally take some time for herself. I will be with her every step of the way.”

Sure ‘making some time for yourself’ would be much easier if she just buggered off on holiday and threw her mobile phone in the sea?

So, back to eating disorders and substance abuse we go…
