    Do you mean a project for her pet?

    Wow, Soverymerg, this may just be the smartest advice on the internet. If I ever graduate from 'Computer School for Morons,' may I use this as my tagline thingy at the bottom of my posts? If you'd rather I didn't, no problem, but I suppose it's only fair to tell you my almost grown kids, their friends, and one or two relatives will be hearing this on my lecture circuit. Also get back on that soapbox any time.

    okay, i'm sure i read on one of the many links on this thread that her renegotiated contract gave her songwriting credits on her songs or something.

    she needs to grow up. she's not 15 anymore. god forbid she ever has a child. she doesn't have the tools to be a mother. i know that's totally a mean thing to say, but i could see her being the type to injure her kid for attention (munchausen by proxy). she already does it to herself.

    I wandered randomly by this site about a year ago and started out reading alot of threads (even the ones I didn't give twofucks about), but you people on this thread are so the funniest/snarkiest/john Madden level game analysis capable/ coolest cats in town. Eddie Cibrian is a whorse thief. Wine is tasty when accompanied with Fail and Fail and more resounding Fail.

    Default Dahlings.... this better work!

    Please forgive me not mentioning the twosome who actually should never be mentioned at all. You see, after Soverymerg graciously granted permission to use her brilliant comment in my signature, I decided to face my fears head-on and commenced my signature journey. In my defense, had I stuck with words alone, I could have easily finished in 2 1/2, maybe 3, hours. But no, that was not enough. I decided that Soverymerg was not only a gifted and wise sage, she was almost certainly Audrey Hepburn for the new millennium. And I wanted a picture in my signature. That is never going to happen, but I did manage to post a picture. That's a major victory..... other than that niggling little detail of having nothing, not one thing, that could be considered germane to Squinty & Scabby. So, I really do apologize, but honestly, copying over to another thread was.... tilting at windmills.

    The good news is you get to look at Audrey Hepburn. I'd say the odds of my signature appearing are 50/50.

    Yes! Awesome! I'm almost as happy as LeAnn, and I don't have to sleep with Eddie!

    She actually performed last night in MO. I only know this because one of Wewe's remaining super fans was there and tweeted non stop about it and I snooped on her twitter TL to read it. This is one of the fans that has been tweeting daily about shitshow about how amazing the show is and it's the best thing since sliced bread. Oh and this is the same fan who has Wewe's name (misspelled) and DOB tattooed on her back PLUS also tattooed "the only one that matters" on herself too- creepy and weird. I felt bad for her she kept tweeting Wewe All day of she had arrived yet and of she wanted to take a walk with her.... Of course Wewe ignored her. She at least threw her a small bone and gave her a meet and greet and took some selfies with her, even Ediot took pics with her. Then fan tweeted how their love (gruesome twosome Ediot and Wewe) is so real and amazing to witness....

    ETA: sitting down to catch up on shitshow after my vacay. Omg saw the scene with foreskin boots on the floor as she was packing for Nashville....gonna be interesting. What's with a tour bus on her dad's property? God this is just awful.

    Maybe I'm twisting something here and maybe the law does allow for children to do that, but if so, it seems pretty messed up. The second bad decision (removing the disability of minority) ensures that the first bad decision (entering into the contract) sticks.
    If the terms weren't fair and reasonable, or Leann's interests weren't adequately represented by her attorney during negotiations, the contract wouldn't be binding. If she couldn't enter into a legally enforceable agreement as a minor, then no label would have signed her until she turned 18. I'm also pretty sure she disaffirmed her status as a minor before signing the deal. Plus, if she accepted any payments after she turned 18 (even she did enter into a legally voidable contract) the contract would be ratified and enforceable.

    Its not like Curb could have forced her to sing or make records for them, as a child or an adult. At most, they could have sued her for breach of contract and recouped any advancements. IMO, if there was no problem spending money received under the contract, its only fair that she perform her end of the bargain. And if the contract was unfair, she should have sued the (court appointed) attorney who represented her interests.

    Well, 'fair & reasonable' are subjective and arguable. If they weren't, there wouldn't be lawsuits about these things all the time.

    Clearly she was signed as a minor & it must be legal because it's done every day but I just don't think it's right that a person of 12 years could be considered capable of making an adult decision that they have to live with for umpteen years. The really insulting part is disaffirming her minor status part. It's like ok, you're too immature to make these decisions so just sign here and attest that you ARE mature enough and we'll believe you because well, we want the money.

    Seriously, what 12 year-old knows enough about life, business, themselves to make that kind of decision?

    This part, I totally get & seems fair enough.

    Leann didn't argue that the contract was unfair or unreasonable, because the agreement was approved by the court (at Curb's request). Did they see this suit coming? Covered every base!

    "Curb required that a court approve its agreement with Rimes before putting the contract into effect, and the 160th Judicial District Court in Dallas declared it was a "fair and reasonable" one on June 1, 1995."

    CMT : News : Now 18, LeAnn Rimes Sues to End Her Record Contract
    Now 18, LeAnn Rimes Sues to End Her Record Contract
    November 21, 2000; Written by Edward Morris

    LeAnn Rimes has asked the United States District Court in Dallas to sever the contract she has had with Curb Records since April 27, 1995, when she was 12 years old. Rimes, who now lives in California, turned 18 on Aug. 28. The singer's lawyer, G. Tomas Rhodus, filed the suit to end the "minor's contract" on Nov. 15.

    The suit alleges no wrongdoing on Curb's part but repeatedly alludes to Rimes' age at the time the contract was signed.

    Also listed as a defendant in the suit is LeAnn Rimes Entertainment, Inc. (LREI), which is headquartered in Dallas. In its contract with Curb, LREI promised it had the right to provide the label with Rimes' services as a recording artist and songwriter. Wilbur Rimes, LeAnn's father, was president of LREI at the time the agreement was made. Rimes' mother, Belinda, who has since been divorced from Wilbur, now holds that office.

    In May, Rimes sued her father and others of her management team, alleging breaches of fiduciary duty and fraud in the conduct of her career.

    Besides seeking termination of her record contract, the new suit asks that Curb return and relinquish all rights in Rimes' "sound recordings and audiovisual works"; return all her publishing rights; discontinue immediately the manufacture and sale of her records; and recall and destroy all of Rimes' records now in Curb's distribution network.

    According to the April 27, 1995, agreement, Rimes committed to an initial contract period that was to end eight months after she delivered to Curb the master recordings for her first "non-gospel" album. This initial period was to be followed by seven more "option periods," exercised at Curb's discretion. Each of these renewal periods was to extend from the end of the previous period until nine months after Rimes' delivery of the requisite "non-gospel" masters. The new complaint says that it would take Rimes an "indeterminate number of years" to complete her obligations under the disputed contract.

    Curb paid Rimes, through LREI, a $170,000 advance, $15,000 of which was designated for her lawyers and $70,000 for the recording studio in which she had already cut material for a country and a gospel album. Tracks from these albums were later released by Curb on Blue, Unchained Melody: The Early Years and You Light Up My Life: Inspirational Songs.

    The agreement gave Rimes and Curb the joint right to choose her record producer, and the label preapproved Wilbur Rimes as a producer. Curb agreed to release no more than three greatest hits or best-of collections during the term of the original agreement, and Rimes agreed to record at least two additional cuts for each of these packages. Curb also reserved the right to require Rimes to record one gospel album and to make at least one music video during each of the seven renewal periods.

    According to the agreement, Rimes' artist royalties (which included royalties to her producers) would start at 13 percent of the retail price of the albums sold and could rise to as much as 16.5 percent during her seventh option period.

    In a separate document, also dated April 27, 1995, Rimes agreed that if for any reason LeAnn Rimes Incorporated could no longer make her services available to Curb as it had agreed to, she would convey those rights directly to Curb.

    Curb required that a court approve its agreement with Rimes before putting the contract into effect, and the 160th Judicial District Court in Dallas declared it was a "fair and reasonable" one on June 1, 1995.

    I suppose she blames Curb for holding her back & keeping her from being the megastar she thinks she could have been. She seems bitter about it all. Bitter about everything, really.

    Oh, I think her career could have gone further without Curb and Wilbur. But only if Leann had taken advice from professionals, if she had not cancelled so much, and had been nice to fans. That behaviour can only be blamed on Leann, even if her mother enabled her. She's a growns ass woman now, and should take responsability for her actions.

    http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2014/08/04/leann-rimes-bikni-line-show-brandi-glanville-eddie/

    LeAnn Rimes is a busy woman these days. With a new reality show, new album, and a possible bikini line, the Grammy-winning country crooner has a lot to talk about. FOX411 recently caught up with the ďBlueĒ singer whoís anything but.

    FOX411: On a recent episode of ďLeAnn & Eddie,Ē one of your girlfriends accused you of losing touch with your southern roots. Have you?
    LeAnn Rimes: No, thatís bulls--t! Itís so funny. I guess it depends on who Iím around and what Iím around. I grew up in Texas and Mississippi, so I have those kind of roots in me. I have so much that Iíve been influenced by from traveling the world. Iím really kind of a mutt. When I get around my mom and my southern friends, I start to get an accent again. I can totally be redneck with the best of them, and I can be totally as posh as possible.

    FOX411: In recent years, the media has really focused on your figure and weight. Do you find that kind of attention to be a double-edged sword?
    Rimes: Yeah, it completely is! For women in an industry that picks you apart and a society now that has really turned to picking people apart to make themselves feel better-- which is really sad-- it seems to be less of building people up and more tearing people down. But, you know, I donít do it for anyone else. I do it for my health. Obviously, looking healthy is in my mind, always. Number one, Iím a woman, but obviously itís magnified more for me, but I think the more I made it about my health and not how I look, it makes it more fun. It makes it easier to do. It makes you want to get up and take care of yourself. Thatís just something Iíve found, for me, over the past couple of years. It just changed the way I look at fitness. Just get out and enjoy something physical.

    FOX411: Have you thought about launching your own bikini line?
    Rimes: Yes, I have! And Iíve been researching that a little bit more as we speak.

    FOX411: Will you be hands-on with designing the bikinis?
    Rimes: Oh, yeah! I mean, Iíve worn so many bikinis that I know what works and what doesnít. I know what I like and I know whatís missing in the marketplace. We shall see! I hope that it comes to fruition.

    FOX411: What kind of bikinis do you envision for your line?
    Rimes: I donít know. Iím an earthly girl. I love very natural colors-- nudes and golds. Beautiful, feminine and classy.

    FOX411: How many bikinis do you own?
    Rimes: Oh, a lot! The other day, I said I had 80 pairs of shoes and Eddie was like, ďNo way. You have at least 140 pairs of shoes.Ē So, I started counting and I told him, ďBabe, I stopped counting at 200.Ē So, thatís pretty much the same thing with bikinis. Iíd like to say that I donít have a ton, but I know I do.

    FOX411: Any advice on how to rock a bikini like LeAnn Rimes?
    Rimes: I think the biggest misconception about bikinis is that if youíre heavier, that you need to wear more coverage on your butt. It looks horrible on any woman. The skimpier the bottoms, the better your butt looks! If you look at pictures of women with bikinis that cover the whole butt, it just looks frumpy. Flaunt what youíve got!

    FOX411: Letís talk about your new album of dance remixes, ďDance Like You Donít Give aÖĒ Did you have much input?
    Rimes: Yeah! I mean, these songs are spanning 18 years, which is interesting to have songs from when I was a kid until now on this record. I love the "Spitfire" remix. I love the "Youíve Ruined Me" remix. I love the "Strong" remix, even though thereís not a lot of vocals on it, itís just really beautiful. Over the years, remixes are something that Iíve had success with on the dance chart, so my fans have been asking for my remixes on one record for a long time. Itís really something to give to the fans, and thereís a couple of new songs on the record, too, that we had remixed. It was fun! I love to dance, and I would love to do more of this.

    FOX411: What direction will you go with your next album? Who are your influences now?
    Rimes: Gosh, I donít know! That is the of the question of the moment in my life right now. I think I know where I want to go more than I believe I do. I love ďSpitfire,Ē the last record. It kind of put me on a different path. One thing I know is that there will always be honesty within in my music, more so than ever. Iím excited to experiment with what I think I want. Itís funnyĖtoday, I was trying to reference things with the sound that I was thinking about, because itís kind of a mishmash of a bunch of different things and it really dawned on me, I was trying to create something completely new, and you have nothing to reference. Itís kind of a cool thing to be culling from different genres. I love older country music,. I love older soul music. I love some of the songs that are coming out of the UK. I love the Lumineers. Thereís a million things that I am influenced by, and I think that I donít have to live in such a box anymore, which is nice. Who knows whatís going to happen, but itís going to be a very cool, creative process for me, and Iím already thoroughly enjoying it, even though I havenít quite started it yet. Iím almost getting there. Iím ready!

    FOX411: How has it been to have the opportunity to tell your side of the story with your new VH1 reality show, ďEddie & LeAnn?Ē
    Rimes: Itís been good! Eddie and I are the last people that Iíd ever think would dive into a show in the unscripted world, but we wanted to work together, honestly. We wanted to be able make fun of everything that has been the soap opera that people have written about our lives. Producers Scott and Deirdre Gurney and VH1 realized what kind of show we wanted make, which was based in comedyĖĎcause it's how Eddie and I are, anyway. We wanted to poke fun at some of these crazy rumors and give insight as to who we are. We are normal people who have feelings, and are navigating life just like everyone else does.

    FOX411: Do you let your step-kids (Eddieís sons, Mason, 11, and Jake, 7, with ex-wife and ďReal Housewives of Beverly HillsĒ star Brandi Glanville) watch the show?
    Rimes: They havenít watched the show. But like (on the episode where I return to Tennessee), I feel totally comfortable letting them watch. They already are exposed to so much outside our home. We donít let any magazines inside our house when it comes to tabloids. We donít ever turn on the TV and watch "E! News" or anything like that with them around because you never know whatís going to pop up. We didnít go out of the way to dig at anyone. Itís how we deal with all of that in our life and how we joke about that in our life. You either go crazy because of all of it, or decide to take it on and laugh about it and just go, ďHow ridiculous is all of this? This is just insane that this is our life.Ē We donít take ourselves so seriously.

    FOX411: Have you heard from Brandi since the show has aired?
    Rimes: Like, privately? No. We actually donít speak, really. Eddie and her talk over email about the kids, but other than that-- no. Sheís free to say anything she wants, and she does. So sheíll talk about it, eventually.



    Still trying to figure out how she got to this conclusion:
