Twitter Weight War: LeAnn Rimes vs. Giuliana Rancic
E! Online host Giuliana Rancic and country singer LeAnn Rimes are having a war of words over Rimes' weight.
Rancic spoke with the Huffington Post on Tuesday about the new Italian restaurant in Chicago she is planning to open with husband Bill -- and said the one celebrity she'd like to feed the most was Rimes.
"She lost a lot of weight from all the stress in her life," Rancic said. "She seems a little thin right now, and I think she looks great when she's a bit curvier."
An avid tweeter, Rimes took to her Twitter account in response. "@GiulianaRancic hey, we should go to dinner sometime. You get criticized all the time for how small you are. You can see just HOW much I eat and maybe put a stop to this crazy "shrinking" once and for all.....oh, & then we should workout together! Good luck with your restaurant!!!!"
Rimes later wrote, "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."
