LeAnn Rimes – Skin & Bones

1300207337_rimes-skinny-290

Here comes the bride . . . all skin and bones?

LeAnn Rimes stepped out in Calabasas, Calif. with fiance Eddie Cibrian on Friday — wearing a draped tank top, short-shorts and platform shoes that all accentuated her shockingly gaunt frame.

As contrast, Rimes sported healthier-looking curves in a similar short-shorts outfit while in Nashville with her man back in June 2010.

With her wedding to actor Cibrian coming later this year, the “How Do I Live” singer, 28, turned heads at a West Hollywood bash late last month with her scary-skinny new physique.

“She looked unbelievably skinny,” one onlooker said of Rimes.

Still, Rimes says she keeps a healthy diet. Tweeting on Tuesday, she reported her breakfast to fans: “Poached eggs, whole wheat toast and Italian ham w/ fresh berries!”

Fitness enthusiast Rimes has said that exercising has helped her cope with her dramatic personal life. (Her extramarital 2009 affair with Cibrian, 37, ended both of their marriages to other people.)

“Just getting to the gym — even for a few minutes — was a big accomplishment,” Rimes told Shape mag last year. Working out “really did make me feel better and kind of saved me…It gave me a bit of sanity.”

She added of her hardcore routines: “I’m serious about my exercise. I don’t just doodle around. I see people at the gym talking on their cell phones. If they think their bodies are really going to change … I mean, you’ve got to put in the effort!”

LeAnn & Eddie Plan New Reality Show

Are LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian planning to star in their own version of Newlyweds?

A source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands now) that the singer, 28 — who once called reality stars “train wrecks” — is in negotiations to do a series about her upcoming nuptials to Cibiran, 37.

“The deal is nearly done,” says an insider.

The duo — who got engaged in December following a 2009 affair that ended her marriage to Dean Sheremet and his to Brandi Glanville — plan to tie the knot this spring at a private Montana estate. (Rimes has denied this is where the ceremony will occur.)

Though a rep for Rimes says the show “isn’t happening,” Glanville has high hopes for the proposed series.

“I hope they do a show,” she tells Us exclusively. “He needs a job.”

Billy Ray: Trying to Mend Family

Billy Ray Cyrus is trying to do right by his loved ones.

After telling PEOPLE in its new issue that fame “destroyed my family” – and revealing in another interview he was “scared” for daughter Miley, 18, – the country star says he’s looking inward.

“It is very important to me to work on mending my family right now,” Cyrus, 49, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
Calling his recent comments “explosive, and unintentionally so,” Cyrus says, “My family is the most important thing I have, and we are working together to make sure our future is stronger and healthier.”

Cyrus, who had retreated to his Tennessee farm and filed for divorce last fall, has been lately spending time in Los Angeles with wife Tish, 43, and youngest daughter Noah, 11.

“It is all a learning process, and we thank everyone for their support and respect of our privacy as we sort through very important family issues,” he says.

For more on Cyrus’s regrets, his hopes to repair his family, and Miley’s reaction to his comments, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

Gwyneth Paltrow Confirms: I Helped Set Up Jake and Taylor!

Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal might owe Gwyneth Paltrow a thank-you: if it weren’t for her, their relationship may have fizzled out sooner than it started.

Paltrow, 38, hosted a private dinner party for the pair during Swift and Gyllenhaal’s secretive trip to London on November 13.

“Jake and Taylor were driven from the Dorchester hotel to Gwyneth and Chris Martin‘s house in Primrose Hill for dinner,” an insider told Us. “Gwyneth seems to have played a role in their relationship.”

When USA Today asked Paltrow about the intimate gathering with Gyllenhaal, 30, and Swift, 21, the Country Strong actress initially tried to play coy.

“Where is this coming from?” she asked, adding that she’s “scared to say” much about the couple’s blossoming romance.

“It’s so weird. I wonder how people find out these things. It was a while ago, so I don’t know why it would come out today,” Paltrow said. “I’ve just known Jake for a long time and he’s a great guy, and Chris has a friendship with Taylor.”

Paltrow’s matchmaking skills apparently paid off: one week after their trip, Swift scheduled a last-minute trip to Brooklyn to spend Thanksgiving with Gyllenhaal at his sister Maggie’s home.

“They were so happy and content,” an eyewitness told Us of the couple. “They seemed very comfortable together.”

Jake & Tay really know how to get their hearts racing.
