Shape Magazine Is Sorry For This

October 28, 2010 / Posted by:

When some readers of Shape Magazine saw this cover of Falcor LeAnn Rimes, they raised their fists into the air, fell out of their lawn chairs and kicked a baby squirrel nibbling on a nut nearby. They couldn’t believe that such a pristine, decent and morally upstanding publication like Shape would interview a no good, dick snatching slut whore like LeAnn. How dare Shape dirty their freshly starched nun habit with LeAnn’s stank! They should only feature virgin bunnies on their cover (I’d totally get a subscription to Shape if they only featured virgin bunnies on their cover).

So a bunch of readers (aka Brandi Glanville using a hundred Gmail accounts) wrote angry e-mails to the editor demanding to know the meaning of this! The editor-in-chief Valerie Latona wrote many of them back and she didn’t tell them to chew on Brandi Glanville’s taint. Instead she apologized and said the magazine made a mistake by putting a noted “husband stealer” on their cover. AHAHAHAHA. You know LeAnn’s ex has got a kumqat-tini in his paw and is laughing all theatrical-like at this unnecessary drama.

Here’s a copy of the e-mail from TooFab that Valerie sent out:

Subject: To my dear Shape 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.



To be honest, Shape should apologize. But not because they put LeAnn Rimes on the cover. But because they put that shitty picture on the cover. Apology accepted, Valerie!
