LeAnn Rimes

LeAnn Rimes is a multi-Grammy award-winning American country singer/songwriter, actress and writer. Her version of Blue became a smash hit when she was just a teenager. How Do I Live, Can't Fight the Moonlight, and I Need You, further solidified her fame.

She was also a TV personality of Nashville Star fame, and co-author of the children's books Jag, and Jag's New Friend. The "little girl with the big voice" made a successful transition to adult country star, and has gone on to sell millions of albums. She has given of her time to charities such as the Children's Miracle Network, the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, animal rights organizations, and was a spokesperson for a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of the autoimmune disease psoriasis. LeAnn had the following to say on the subject: "Having battled severe psoriasis my whole life, I have gone to great lengths to hide my condition, especially as a performer. Over the years, I've had to deal with the emotional and physical toll psoriasis has had on my self-esteem and confidence. But today I no longer let psoriasis define who I am or how I feel about myself. I hope by joining this effort and sharing my story, others will be empowered to stop hiding from their psoriasis and better manage their disease and not let it limit them or their aspirations."

The heartfelt reaction fans gave her song, What I Cannot Change, from her album Family, inspired her to produce a companion book described as "stories from people who have experienced their own journeys of change."

The country superstar and her husband separated in 2009, after she began an affair with Eddie Cibrian, with whom she starred in the Lifetime TV-movie, Northern Lights. LeAnn and Dean Sheremet's divorce became final on June 19, 2010.

Quotes - In her own words

"When I was younger, all I knew was that I wanted to sing. I didn't know a lot about being a celebrity or what comes along with that. Over the 13 years that I've been in this business, celebrity has changed. It used to not be as big as it is now. Today, being a celebrity drives careers more than talent or artistry, it seems."

"I'm still around in this business after a decade, and I haven't fallen off the deep end yet, and I don't plan on it."

"I do think that my parents raised me properly. As big of a battle as it was between all of us, I still respected them as my parents and I think they did a really good job raising me, and I love what I do. So I think it came down to realizing that I can end my career or I can choose not to and continue to work hard and do what I love."

"As a performer in the public spotlight, coping with my psoriasis was scary and frustrating at times. I had to recognize how psoriasis was affecting many aspects of my life and commit to managing it. Personally, I learned to control my disease by working with a dermatologist to develop a treatment plan that is best for me."

"I also think songs like What I Cannot Change are part of the reason gay people relate to me. It speaks volumes to so many people in so many ways. Another song I think a lot of people can relate to is the song Family. I talk about my uncle who was gay and died of AIDS when I was 11. I don't think a lot of people know that about my life."

"My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn't a fulfilling marriage for either of us." "We got married so young: I was 19 and he was 21, so as we got older, we grew apart." "I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don't think the way I did it was right." "This past year, for the first time ever, I put me first." "I'm sure some people are thinking that I was totally selfish, but the truth is, there are times in your life when you have to be selfish in order to find out what truly makes you happy."
