Rimes was so incensed by the E! story that broke Thursday (Nov. 4) night that Twitter’s 140 characters wasn’t enough to convey her feelings. Instead, she had to turn to TwitLonger so that she could go on at length about the lies being spread about her. Even if, for once, they were nice ones:
]]>Ok, I’ve about had it with the lack of “reporting” with E News. The
fact that our “engagement” has spread so furiously over the past 24
hours off of an E News article that is 150% untrue just shows you the
lack of credible “sources” they seem to find and build a story around.
When CNN is calling my publicist off of a lie E News has reported, the
media world seriously has a problem with their lack of responsibility to

Thanks to all of our wonderful fans for the premature congrats, but for
now, let’s all be happy we’re happy and still and will remain together!
Eddie and I felt we couldn’t let this rumor go on any longer.
Of course, Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, had already given an
interview saying, “I am happy they are engaged. Consistency is good for
the kids,” referring to her and Cibrian’s two sons. Sure, that’s not
actually an admittance that she was one of the first people they called
with their joyous news, but it also doesn’t sound like it took her by
And, for their part, E! is sticking by its story, saying that Rimes is
only denying it because they were hoping to cut a deal with a
publication that would pay them to be the ones to announce the
For our part, we give up. We hereby promise that if Rimes and Cibrian do
get “officially” engaged within the next 6 months we will consider it
to have already been reported and won’t bother any of you with another
post. Done and done.
