Allergies Prevent LeAnn Rimes From Singing on “Jimmy Kimmel”
LeAnn Rimes was scheduled to perform her latest single "Borrowed" Tuesday night (Jan. 22) on Jimmy Kimmel Live! but allergies prevented her from doing so. Instead, the country singer got some extra time on the couch to chat with Jimmy about a wide range of topics, including a swollen face and her husband's ex-wife.
"I had allergies going on that I never had. The other day I woke up with no voice," LeAnn told Jimmy during the interview. "I went to the doctor. My head was swollen and literally my face was swollen."
After receiving treatment from her doctor—a shot of Novocain up her nose—the singer was not supposed to sing or talk. "I can't talk for the next two weeks after here," said LeAnn.
And that may be a good thing, as Jimmy pointed out, because LeAnn's feud with her husband's ex-wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, has started up again. Brandi went on Bravo talk show Watch What Happens Live on Monday night (Jan. 21) and called LeAnn "insane."
"I think it's kind of interesting how it seems very one-sided most of the time," LeAnn said. "But then you just kinda get fed up with people lying about you and you're like, you know . . . words here, words here."
"I know she called you insane last night on television," Jimmy said.
"I am, clearly, clearly. I am, though," LeAnn joked.
"You have a little something that none of the real houswives, as far as I know—I could be mistaken—have. . . . You're talented," added Jimmy.
"Thank you!" LeAnn exclaimed.
Without a voice we're guessing LeAnn will stick to carrying on the feud via Twitter. You can follow the action at @LeAnnRimes while we await the release of LeAnn's new album, Spitfire, due out April. 9
