OFFSTAGE: LeAnn Rimes: Three Rings and a Thong

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

How do I know LeAnn Rimes Cibrian is all set for a lifetime of happiness? Because it sounds like her wedding day style was full of romance and a sense of humor. Both of which are vital to a happy marriage, I think. The romance was in the form of the three wedding bands she now wears, one for new husband Eddie, one for his son Mason and another for his son Jake. And then inside the wedding band she gave her husband, she had “I love you more” inscribed on the inside. How sweet is that? As for the sense of humor, the bride told People magazine she had “a blue Hanky Panky thong that said ‘I do’.” That shows a sassy side. And at around $31, that was a steal compared to the $250,000 platinum diamond brooch she wore. You can see the official wedding portrait here. And, no, you can’t see the thong.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
