Oooh dear. It’s never a good thing when the editor of a magazine has to apologize for putting someone on the cover. But that is just what the editor of Shape Magazine, editor-in-chief Valerie Latona, is doing. It seems that many of her readers did NOT think that LeAnn Rimes was appropriate to be their cover girl.
“You are all in good company…as you all agree Shape has made a terrible mistake in putting LeAnn Rimes on the cover,” Latona explained. “Please know that our putting her on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal-but to show (through her story) how we all are human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment.”
“it did not come across that way…And for that I’m terribly sorry. I hope that we can do better the next time for those of you that will give us another chance.”[via US]
So, just what got Shape readers’ panties in a twist? Maybe it was LeAnn talking about just why she had an affair with fellow married actor,Eddie Cibrian, and then left her husband.
“My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us,” Rimes, 28, told the mag. “I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart.”
I find it interesting that LeAnn gets rejected, but Angelina Jolie still sells magazines.
