leann rimes gi small LeAnn Rimes' bikini situation: She wears them. Can we get over it?Okay, so, it’s summer. We’re all battling late-August heat. Bikinis happen. Even to LeAnn Rimes.

The difference between a commoner wearing a bikini and LeAnn Rimes wearing a bikini is that when Rimes does it, it creates instant headlines. Her tattoo! Her bones! Her beach of the day! Everything is, apparently, fascinating.

Giuliana Rancic’s comments about Rimes’ very thin figure (basically, Rancic said she wanted to feed Rimes) even prompted Rimes to publicly invite Rancic to dinner via Twitter. “I just don’t appreciate her comments, so I really would love for her to hang with me, see who I am. I am a person you know,” Rimes says.

It is entirely possible that Rimes is healthy. It is entirely possible that she is not. But how is remarking on her startling thinness — especially if one thinks that she has body image issues — any better than remarking on the weight gain of a young artist recovering from an eating disorder?

We’re over it.
