[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Leann Rimes[/lastfm] has wanted to be a ‘Diva’ for some time now! But she was just too busy with work, getting married and going on her honeymoon. But the timing is perfect now for her to go for it, and we will soon see Leann as guest star on Lifetime’s season 3 premiere on Drop Dead Diva!
Sunday night, the newlywed singer/actress will be’ playing the role of the ‘ex-wife of a celebrity accused of a hit-and-run.’ And Leann Rimes tells AOL.TV that she is not really a diva, she just plays one on television!
‘Drop Dead Diva’ asked me to do an episode last year. The character they offered me the first time is the complete opposite of this one, I loved it. But the timing wasn’t right. They wrote this character specifically for me, hoping I’d do it. I loved it when I read it. The show’s great, really funny. I love playing the scorned ex-wife of a TV star.
Leann has been taking a lot of heat about her body size lately, and when asked about what she likes best about the series Drop Dead Diva, here is what she said:
“The message of the show is that this aspiring model died and came back in someone else’s body, who is heavier, not necessarily who she’d want to be. But she has this amazing heart and is this smart-as-a-whip lawyer. We think body image is black-and-white, but we all come in so many different shapes.”
I definitely agree with Leann on that fact, we all come in ‘different shapes and sizes’ and it’s sad that so much emphasis is put on ‘body size’. I tell my daughters all the time that they are perfect and beautiful just the way they are, and don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t![photogallerylink id=77840 align=right]

Do you struggle with self-esteem issues because of your ‘size’?
