Report: Carly Rose's family fuming at LeAnn Rimes
Was 'X Factor' runner-up unjustly blamed for bizarre performance?
According to TMZ, the family of Carly Rose Sonenclar is livid at LeAnn Rimes for reportedly trashing the Season 2 "X Factor" runner-up to deflect from her own problems. The pair dueted on Rimes' signature hit, "How Do I Live," on Wednesday night's show.
After the bizarre performance fueled Internet-wide speculation about Rimes' well-being, TMZ reported that Rimes, through a representative, insisted that she was not drunk or in any way impaired. Instead, she blamed Sonenclar, saying: "I was trying to help this 13-year-old girl who was having some trouble with the song." Rimes added that Sonenclar was "nervous and had trouble hitting the right notes."
TMZ quotes an unnamed source close to Sonenclar's mother and other relatives as saying they "can't believe LeAnn threw their daughter under the bus, and that it was clear -- Carly Rose was a pro and even out-performed LeAnn at her own song."
Rimes later claimed she never provided a quote, TMZ says. However, the gossip website adds: "Her rep specifically gave us the quote and told us we could use it." (In fairness to Rimes, it is common practice for entertainment publicists to invent quotes for their clients without their knowledge -- especially if the clients are unreachable and there is a publicity crisis. However, it is also considered bad form for clients to contradict their own representatives to reporters.)
On Thursday night, Tate Stevens was crowned the Season 2 "X Factor" winner.
Neither one floated my boat.
2 seasons...and ratings down? so far this year it was head to head with THE VOICEand RUDOLF and lost. tells u simons magic potion is waning. its about the judges. simon hasnt changed (but i agree with him more than the other judges) britney must be on something - course the court wont let her deal with her money. demee - smart mouth.. never understood her popularity. she didnt write SKYSCAPER, she just sang it (2 people and kerli koiv - who sang it first). L.A. beat feet before the train wreck happens.
is the show about the singers OR the judges? i am sure L.A. is leaving cuz he sees a train wreck. simon is too intent on glitz/glamor rather than the singing. a lot of people wud like to be flies on the wall to see what goes on. that ear piercing wail of the banshees in the audience is constant - does a sign go up??
watch the UK x factor on youtube....its better and less schtick.
Whether it was her fault or not, who allows their publicist throw a 13 year old under the bus????
Tacky, trash does.
Never liked LeAnn's version of that song to begin with, SHOULD have Trisha Yearwood sing it with her to stary with,. I feel very saddened that LeAnn wasn't adult enough to take responsibility for her own inadequacies. What respect I had for her? Is now completely gone Just tell our daughter to remember that this is the BUSINESS, it isn't fair, it sucks sometimes even, but there are a lot of good people out there. That all things are a learning lesson. The lesson is for her good, even if it feels hurtful right now. It will make Karly stronger and a better person in the long run. TRISHA would never do that to a child. Trisha is wonderful singer, but not a "diva". "Diva" is not always a "kind" word. It is almost like a southern woman saying "bless your heart", pretty much a "kiss of death" in most situations.
Your daughter is a wonderful, beautiful girl, with the WHOLE world loving her, and waiting for her first album to come out. I will buy BOTH hers and Tate's CDs when they come out (and I havn't bought a CD in several years). She has an incredible future ahead of her, a little Celine in the making. Just be sure to keep her "circle" a good one, that she is protected from bad influences (I remember hearing that Celine's husband was VERY careful about keeping Celine's "circle" the right type of people.
