LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian’s Beach Boys

*EXCLUSIVE* LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian: Family getaway for his 40th Birthday

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were photographed with his sons Mason, 9, and Jake, 6, in Los Angeles, Calif. on Tuesday (June 18). Packing on the PDA, the controversial couple enjoyed the sand and surf to celebrate Eddie’s 40th birthday.

“We have a lot on our plates,” LeAnn, 30, recently said of adding to their family. “But whenever I talk about kids, I’m like, ‘Let’s have one!’ I have a lot of work to do now but I’m totally ready if it happens.”

That being said, LeAnn added, “Testosterone is all around here so I need a little girl!”

LeAnn is currently promoting her new album, Spitfire.

    I mean, I know they are at a beach and everyone wears bikinis. I just think that as an adult you should not wear one that doesn’t cover more of your butt when you are with children. That’s just my personal opinion. Especially little boys. Save those suits for when you are on a vacation with your husband. She looks good and the suit is cute, it’s just not cool or a good example.

      For the US culture, I guess that might be true. But as a European, most women wear a lot less, so this doesn’t faze me at all.

    Leann made several tweets about being on the beach that day, so this isn’t candid photos of them celebrating. Rather than call these famewhores out for pimping out those poor kids, the media writes a ridiculous fluffpiece glorifying their bad behavior. It’s a staged photo-op. Leann hired her best friends AKM-GSI to take the photos. Eddie and Leann are even looking at the paps telling them which photos to take.How do the paps find Leann at the beach with Eddie and his kids when they couldn’t get one photo of her at rehab? How is it that they are constantly papped at the beach, yet Eddie is able to move through LA rarely being photographed? These two are the worst kind of people because they don’t care who they hurt.

    Of course they are packing on the pda, Eddie is cheating on Leann and Leann is trying to distract the media from writing about how her album flopped. It worked. Instead of CBs writing about how Leann’s album only sold 10,798 copies it’s first week, they write that Leann is promoting her album.

    Instead of writing fluff, these photos should just be captioned with this:

    “A six year old and a two in a half year old do not need this kind of negative media attention or any type of public exposure.”-Eddie Cibrian

    “In fact our children should be protected from exposure to public “gossip” in the tabloid magazines and paparazzi”-Eddie Cibrian

    “I go with the flow, but I’m very protective. I wouldn’t say I’m overly protective, but I’m very protective.” -Eddie Cibrian(Rachel Ray 2009)

    “I don’t think it’s very conducive to play anything like privately out publicly at all,” Cibrian goes on. “I mean I think it’s like very hurtful.”-Eddie Cibrian (Rachel Ray 2009)

    “I mean, my philosophy is to try to insulate them so they’re not subject to anything, you know, regarding the business and anything of tabloid nature,” he says.”-Eddie Cibrian(Rachel Ray 2009)

      Brandy does tons of staged photo-ops too. Every time I see her in the Daily Mail she’s posing with a bikini on for no reason other than publicity. Just saying..

    Why do certain sites condone Leann’s bad behavior?

    Suburban Turmoil: This is not a Bonus Mom

    And that’s okay. It has taken me years to be able to say it, but that’s okay.

    I think that most stepmoms eventually realize this– and that’s why you won’t find a whole lot of stepmom blogs out there (and why you’ll often find yourself shuddering when you read the intimate details shared by some of the stepmoms that are online). If we suffer from finding ourselves smack dab in the middle of a touchy blended family situation that we did not create and do not control, we mostly do it in silence- if we’re smart. It’s the Stepmother Way.

    But then someone like LeAnn Rimes comes along– and, well, see for yourself.

    LeAnn. LeAnn, LeAnn, LeAnn.

    From one stepmother to another? You are not a Bonus Mom.

    If we want to get specific here, you’re actually the one that ended the relationship between the real mom and dad of those “adorable Rascals.” I feel pretty certain that you are a “bonus” that those boys could have done without.

    Your war of words with your husband’s ex has been well-documented by the media and even though I know how irritating and unfair it can be when your stepchildren’s mother says something nasty about you, your best defense, if you really, truly care about the kids (and Gisele, I hope you’re listening too) is SILENCE.

    SILENCE.

    Of course, in your defense, LeAnn, you’re hardly the first new stepmother to commit the dreaded ‘Bonus Mom’ faux pas. Now that my little ones are getting older, I’m starting to become acquainted with more and more new stepmoms, women who are giving me an uncomfortable case of deja vu because they’re right where I was ten years ago. They’re often the ones asking way too many questions during parent meetings, cheering way too loudly at soccer games, and baring way too much skin during children’s birthday parties. (I know it’s a new relationship and all, but uh. Just sayin.’) It’s hard for me to see them now because I remember doing some of the exact same things when I was in their shoes, and only now am I understanding why I got more than a few hostile glares at the time from other moms.

    A stepmom is not a bonus mom.

    My advice to LeAnn, to other new stepmoms, hell, to myself ten years ago, is to take the “wind beneath their wings” approach. Avoid conflict with the kids’ mom. Be ready and willing to take a step back at birthday parties and sports events. You do not need to prove to the world how much YOU CARE. Be there for the kids when they need you, but be willing to back off when they’re feeling conflicted, or when their mom is causing trouble, or when it’s creating problems in your own marriage. It might not be best for you and your feelings (and in a world where YOUR FEELINGS are EVERYTHING, I realize that this can be very hard to take), but if you really do want the best for the members of your blended family, you’ll do it for them.

    I don’t understand why celebs do these obviously-staged photo ops. Do they think we’re that stupid or are they just so desperate for attention that they don’t care? She always seems waaaay more into him than he is her and it is inappropriate to be in bikini bottoms like that infront of your young stepsons.

    I’m a stepmother and I love my step-daughter as if I gave birth to her myself. I AM a “bonus mom”. And you know what? Her mother is thrilled that her daughter has another person in her life that loves her on that level. Maybe she’s just mature about that situation. *shrugs*

      Or perhaps you let the situation develop on it’s own, instead of demanding the right to be called a bonus mom and being generally overbearing. ‘Bonus Mom’ is an earned title, not something you decide you are.

    Not a fan but thank god she’s looking less skeletal. The super skinny look really did not suit her, too far from her natural body type.

    SILENCE.

    Of course, in your defense, LeAnn, you’re hardly the first new stepmother to commit the dreaded ‘Bonus Mom’ faux pas. Now that my little ones are getting older, I’m starting to become acquainted with more and more new stepmoms, women who are giving me an uncomfortable case of deja vu because they’re right where I was ten years ago. They’re often the ones asking way too many questions during parent meetings, cheering way too loudly at soccer games, and baring way too much skin during children’s birthday parties. (I know it’s a new relationship and all, but uh. Just sayin.’) It’s hard for me to see them now because I remember doing some of the exact same things when I was in their shoes, and only now am I understanding why I got more than a few hostile glares at the time from other moms.

    A stepmom is not a bonus mom.

    My advice to LeAnn, to other new stepmoms, hell, to myself ten years ago, is to take the “wind beneath their wings” approach. Avoid conflict with the kids’ mom. Be ready and willing to take a step back at birthday parties and sports events. You do not need to prove to the world how much YOU CARE. Be there for the kids when they need you, but be willing to back off when they’re feeling conflicted, or when their mom is causing trouble, or when it’s creating problems in your own marriage. It might not be best for you and your feelings (and in a world where YOUR FEELINGS are EVERYTHING, I realize that this can be very hard to take), but if you really do want the best for the members of your blended family, you’ll do it for them.

    Why do certain sites condone Leann’s bad behavior?

    Suburban Turmoil: This is not a Bonus Mom

    And that’s okay. It has taken me years to be able to say it, but that’s okay.

    I think that most stepmoms eventually realize this– and that’s why you won’t find a whole lot of stepmom blogs out there (and why you’ll often find yourself shuddering when you read the intimate details shared by some of the stepmoms that are online). If we suffer from finding ourselves smack dab in the middle of a touchy blended family situation that we did not create and do not control, we mostly do it in silence- if we’re smart. It’s the Stepmother Way.

    But then someone like LeAnn Rimes comes along– and, well, see for yourself.

    LeAnn. LeAnn, LeAnn, LeAnn.

    Keep it up NYC Mommy! The comments are going to keep being reposted no matter how many times you report them! This is is he 6th time that you have report my comments and this the 7th time I will repost it!

    Leann made several tweets about being on the beach that day, so this isn’t candid photos of them celebrating. Rather than call these famewhores out for pimping out those poor kids, the media writes a ridiculous fluffpiece glorifying their bad behavior. It’s a staged photo-op. Leann hired her best friends AKM-GSI to take the photos. Eddie and Leann are even looking at the paps telling them which photos to take.How do the paps find Leann at the beach with Eddie and his kids when they couldn’t get one photo of her at rehab? How is it that they are constantly papped at the beach, yet Eddie is able to move through LA rarely being photographed? These two are the worst kind of people because they don’t care who they hurt.

    Of course they are packing on the pda, Eddie is cheating on Leann and Leann is trying to distract the media from writing about how her album flopped. It worked. Instead of CBs writing about how Leann’s album only sold 10,798 copies it’s first week, they write that Leann is promoting her album.

    Keep it up NYC Mommy! The comments are going to keep being reposted no matter how many times you report them! This is is he 6th time that you have report my comments and this the 7th time I will repost it!

    Leann made several tweets about being on the beach that day, so this isn’t candid photos of them celebrating. Rather than call these famewhores out for pimping out those poor kids, the media writes a ridiculous fluffpiece glorifying their bad behavior. It’s a staged photo-op. Leann hired her best friends AKM-GSI to take the photos. Eddie and Leann are even looking at the paps telling them which photos to take.How do the paps find Leann at the beach with Eddie and his kids when they couldn’t get one photo of her at rehab? How is it that they are constantly papped at the beach, yet Eddie is able to move through LA rarely being photographed? These two are the worst kind of people because they don’t care who they hurt.

    Of course they are packing on the pda, Eddie is cheating on Leann and Leann is trying to distract the media from writing about how her album flopped. It worked. Instead of CBs writing about how Leann’s album only sold 10,798 copies it’s first week, they write that Leann is promoting her album.

        It’s not people who are reporting the comments, it’s YOU. One person. The comments are only being removed when YOU make a post as ANONYMOUS. That means that before you showed up at 11:40 am, all of the posts were here and the votes on the posts were stable. It’s only when you show up that posts start to disappear.

      You reported 10 comments, so I will repost those. You do understand that someone has been monitoring the site right? If it’s a lot of people like you claim, why weren’t any of these posts gone before 11:10 am? Why did they only start disappearing when you come around? You can argue that it’s mutiple people all you want, the fact still remains that the posts only disappear when you show up.

      Why do certain sites condone Leann’s bad behavior?

      Suburban Turmoil: This is not a Bonus Mom

      And that’s okay. It has taken me years to be able to say it, but that’s okay.

      I think that most stepmoms eventually realize this– and that’s why you won’t find a whole lot of stepmom blogs out there (and why you’ll often find yourself shuddering when you read the intimate details shared by some of the stepmoms that are online). If we suffer from finding ourselves smack dab in the middle of a touchy blended family situation that we did not create and do not control, we mostly do it in silence- if we’re smart. It’s the Stepmother Way.

      But then someone like LeAnn Rimes comes along– and, well, see for yourself.

      LeAnn. LeAnn, LeAnn, LeAnn.

      From one stepmother to another? You are not a Bonus Mom.

      If we want to get specific here, you’re actually the one that ended the relationship between the real mom and dad of those “adorable Rascals.” I feel pretty certain that you are a “bonus” that those boys could have done without.

      Your war of words with your husband’s ex has been well-documented by the media and even though I know how irritating and unfair it can be when your stepchildren’s mother says something nasty about you, your best defense, if you really, truly care about the kids (and Gisele, I hope you’re listening too) is SILENCE.

      SILENCE.

      Of course, in your defense, LeAnn, you’re hardly the first new stepmother to commit the dreaded ‘Bonus Mom’ faux pas. Now that my little ones are getting older, I’m starting to become acquainted with more and more new stepmoms, women who are giving me an uncomfortable case of deja vu because they’re right where I was ten years ago. They’re often the ones asking way too many questions during parent meetings, cheering way too loudly at soccer games, and baring way too much skin during children’s birthday parties. (I know it’s a new relationship and all, but uh. Just sayin.’) It’s hard for me to see them now because I remember doing some of the exact same things when I was in their shoes, and only now am I understanding why I got more than a few hostile glares at the time from other moms.

      A stepmom is not a bonus mom.

      My advice to LeAnn, to other new stepmoms, hell, to myself ten years ago, is to take the “wind beneath their wings” approach. Avoid conflict with the kids’ mom. Be ready and willing to take a step back at birthday parties and sports events. You do not need to prove to the world how much YOU CARE. Be there for the kids when they need you, but be willing to back off when they’re feeling conflicted, or when their mom is causing trouble, or when it’s creating problems in your own marriage. It might not be best for you and your feelings (and in a world where YOUR FEELINGS are EVERYTHING, I realize that this can be very hard to take), but if you really do want the best for the members of your blended family, you’ll do it for them.

    Suburban Turmoil: This is not a Bonus Mom

    And that’s okay. It has taken me years to be able to say it, but that’s okay.

    I think that most stepmoms eventually realize this– and that’s why you won’t find a whole lot of stepmom blogs out there (and why you’ll often find yourself shuddering when you read the intimate details shared by some of the stepmoms that are online). If we suffer from finding ourselves smack dab in the middle of a touchy blended family situation that we did not create and do not control, we mostly do it in silence- if we’re smart. It’s the Stepmother Way.

    But then someone like LeAnn Rimes comes along– and, well, see for yourself.

    LeAnn. LeAnn, LeAnn, LeAnn.

    From one stepmother to another? You are not a Bonus Mom.

    If we want to get specific here, you’re actually the one that ended the relationship between the real mom and dad of those “adorable Rascals.” I feel pretty certain that you are a “bonus” that those boys could have done without.

    Your war of words with your husband’s ex has been well-documented by the media and even though I know how irritating and unfair it can be when your stepchildren’s mother says something nasty about you, your best defense, if you really, truly care about the kids (and Gisele, I hope you’re listening too) is SILENCE.

    SILENCE.

    Of course, in your defense, LeAnn, you’re hardly the first new stepmother to commit the dreaded ‘Bonus Mom’ faux pas. Now that my little ones are getting older, I’m starting to become acquainted with more and more new stepmoms, women who are giving me an uncomfortable case of deja vu because they’re right where I was ten years ago. They’re often the ones asking way too many questions during parent meetings, cheering way too loudly at soccer games, and baring way too much skin during children’s birthday parties. (I know it’s a new relationship and all, but uh. Just sayin.’) It’s hard for me to see them now because I remember doing some of the exact same things when I was in their shoes, and only now am I understanding why I got more than a few hostile glares at the time from other moms.

    A stepmom is not a bonus mom.

    My advice to LeAnn, to other new stepmoms, hell, to myself ten years ago, is to take the “wind beneath their wings” approach. Avoid conflict with the kids’ mom. Be ready and willing to take a step back at birthday parties and sports events. You do not need to prove to the world how much YOU CARE. Be there for the kids when they need you, but be willing to back off when they’re feeling conflicted, or when their mom is causing trouble, or when it’s creating problems in your own marriage. It might not be best for you and your feelings (and in a world where YOUR FEELINGS are EVERYTHING, I realize that this can be very hard to take), but if you really do want the best for the members of your blended family, you’ll do it for them.

    Leann made several tweets about being on the beach that day, so this isn’t candid photos of them celebrating. Rather than call these famewhores out for pimping out those poor kids, the media writes a ridiculous fluffpiece glorifying their bad behavior. It’s a staged photo-op. Leann hired her best friends AKM-GSI to take the photos. Eddie and Leann are even looking at the paps telling them which photos to take.How do the paps find Leann at the beach with Eddie and his kids when they couldn’t get one photo of her at rehab? How is it that they are constantly papped at the beach, yet Eddie is able to move through LA rarely being photographed? These two are the worst kind of people because they don’t care who they hurt.

    Of course they are packing on the pda, Eddie is cheating on Leann and Leann is trying to distract the media from writing about how her album flopped. It worked. Instead of CBs writing about how Leann’s album only sold 10,798 copies it’s first week, they write that Leann is promoting her album.

    Instead of writing fluff, these photos should just be captioned with this:

    “A six year old and a two in a half year old do not need this kind of negative media attention or any type of public exposure.”-Eddie Cibrian

    “In fact our children should be protected from exposure to public “gossip” in the tabloid magazines and paparazzi”-Eddie Cibrian

    “I go with the flow, but I’m very protective. I wouldn’t say I’m overly protective, but I’m very protective.” -Eddie Cibrian(Rachel Ray 2009)

    “I don’t think it’s very conducive to play anything like privately out publicly at all,” Cibrian goes on. “I mean I think it’s like very hurtful.”-Eddie Cibrian (Rachel Ray 2009)
