Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Country Star Defends Her Stick Figure

You would have thought that LeAnn Rimes would be relaxing and enjoying her honeymoon with new hubby Eddie Cibrian but she has felt the need to speak up after a backlash after posting a picture of herself in a bikini on her twitter page. The country singer has faced a lot of flack recently with her every decreasing frame but it seems that she has had enough of other peoples opinions. When one fan replied to her picture saying she was ‘scary skinny’ she quickly responded by tweeting: ‘those are called abs not bones love. This is my body, and I can promise you I’m a healthy girl. I’m just lean. Thanks for your concern, but no need to be.’ While we understand her frustration maybe LeAnn needs to reacquaint herself with human anatomy if she thinks that stomach muscles look like ribs and hip bones jutting out. Perhaps she should stop tweeting and just enjoy the Mexican food with hubby Eddie!

Brangelina Will Marry Though Romance Grosses Out Kids

Brad Pitt has revealed a few more of the secrets of the Pitt-Jolie household in a new interview with USA Today. The Hollywood hunk, who was promoting his new film Tree Of Life, has confirmed that he and Ange will soon make it official and tie the knot after pressure from their children. ‘The kids ask about marriage,’ he said. ‘It’s meaning more and more to them. So it’s something we’ve got to look at.’ But don’t be fooled, these kids are not soppy. ‘There are no secrets at our house,’ he explained. ‘We tell the kids, “Mom and Dad are going off to kiss.” They go, “Eww, gross!” But we demand it.’ Brad also revealed the hardship on the family of growing up in the spotlight but that they all pull together to ensure it doesn’t affect them. ‘Our kids have to live behind a gate. Outside, there are people with cameras. But I’ll take the trade-off. I never knew I was capable of experiencing so much love. Angie and I do everything we can to carve out some semblance of normalcy for them, to re-create the kinds of moments that were special for us.’ I think their normal is very different to our normal!

Cheryl No Longer has The X Factor
It seems that Cheryl’s career as a TV star and talent judge has taken a serious blow after she was fired from the American version of the X Factor after just four auditions and then failed to sign on to the UK show that made her a huge star. It was less than a month ago that Simon Cowell put his faith is his protege and brought her across to the US version of his hit show in a starring role saying ‘she’s got a great ability to communicate. She’s a great judge. She’s smart. You meet someone special a few times in your life and this girl is special.’ However TV executives in the States say: ‘she was like a little girl lost in America. It was as if she lost her mojo completely.’ Since the humiliating sacking, Cheryl has gone into hiding, refusing even to respond to ITV executives who offered an olive branch of her old job back on the UK version of the X Factor. And it seems that Simon Cowell has finally drawn a line under his professional relationship with the Girls Aloud singer releasing a statement about the new judging panel for the British show saying ‘These four are totally up for it, each of them brings a different attitude. They have had a ton of hits between them and they are all committed to finding a star.’ Though it is not all bad – she did earn £1.2 million for just four days work!
