The Daily Shuffle: LeAnn Rimes Says Weight Loss Is ‘A Natural Progression Of Life’

leann rimesSometimes I forget LeAnn Rimes is a singer since all I ever seem to read about her consist of Twitter tirades and weight loss criticism. If she made a record as often as she defended her weight, then there would be no time for any other of her nonsense and the world would be a happier place. But sadly, that day is not today because she recently talked to the Associated Press about her weight. Again. She profoundly stated, “[When I] was going through a divorce and I couldn’t get out of bed… I gained 10 pounds, and then I lost 10 pounds because now I’m moving around and I’m working. I don’t stop, and no one sees that [weight loss] actually can happen, like, naturally. It’s a natural progression of life.” Yeah, that makes sense I guess. Depression makes you eat and moving around and staying active makes you lose weight. Groundbreaking. – US

Sharon Osbourne returned to The Talk this week with some pretty interesting news. Although she claimed her hiatus was so she could spend more time with her husband Ozzy, she admitted on Thursday’s show that her absence was really due to a problem with her breast implants, which she ended up having removed. The color co-host explained, “One morning I woke up and one of my boobies was kind of much longer than the other… So I’m thinking, this isn’t right.” Apparently one of her implants had “leaked into the wall of my stomach,” so now she’s gone back to just her natural assets. How does she feel? “I don’t feel like I have a water bed laying on my chest anymore,” she commented. Best comparison ever. – People

In other completely random news, Woody Allen wants to cast Michelle Obama in a movie. On the British TV program called Daybreak, Allen stated, “If I was in a room with Michelle Obama and I thought she was right for a part, I wouldn’t hesitate to ask her.” I’m sure she will find this very comforting just in case the whole “First Lady” thing doesn’t work out and she needs a backup plan. But if anyone can get a first lady into show biz, it would be Allen who recently used first lady Carla Bruni in his latest movie Midnight in Paris. – NY Mag
