It's tough being skinny. Just ask LeAnn Rimes. The singer has been the subject of much too-thin chatter (which she has addressed on Twitter), and it doesn't show signs of letting up. The Huffington Post reports that Rimes "blew up" on Twitter following dinner with hubby Eddie Cibrian in Chicago on Friday. Apparently, a fellow diner approached her and said something about her weight. Rimes was none too pleased.

"How dare someone come to me at a table w/ the boys & tell me I need to eat something," she tweeted. "What is wrong with people!? AS I'm stuffing my face....have another drink and maybe take a class in manners! Cheers!" Click to read her food-related follow-up tweet. (Read more LeAnn Rimes stories.)
