Valerie Latona has called the decision to publish the interview with LeAnn Rimes and her bikini photos a “terrible mistake”.
Here is the email that Shape’s editor Valerie Latona sent out to upset readers:
You are all in good company (why I’m e-mailing you all together) as you all agree Shape has made a terrible mistake in putting LeAnn Rimes on the cover.
Please know that our putting her on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal-but to show (through her story) how we all are human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment.
But it did not come across that way … And for that I’m terribly sorry.
I hope that we can do better the next time for those of you that will give us another chance.
And what does singer LeAnn Rimes think of this?
“Just so all my fans know, I’m getting to the bottom of this.” LeAnn tweeted. “It’s the first I’ve heard of this. Shape is throwing me a party next week as a thank you and a congrats for being on their cover for the 3rd time. I find this very contradictory.”
Juicy! We love it!
