LeAnn Rimes' highs and lows aren't limited to her personal life.

Eddie Cibrian's wife, 29, says her weight has definitely gone up and down, but she doesn't see this as a reason to be concerned.

"[When I] was going through a divorce and I couldn't get out of bed... I gained 10 pounds, and then I lost 10 pounds because now I'm moving around and I'm working," she told the Associated Press in an interview published Thursday. "I don't stop, and no one sees that [weight loss[ actually can happen like naturally. It's a natural progression of life."

"It has to be some big deal and some issue," the country star said. "I'm glad there are people out there that are smarter than that and they don't buy into it."

"I was told when I was little I couldn't have an opinion because you want everyone to buy your record and like you," she said. "I'm not gonna apologize for who I am and what I've gone through. We all are human."

In an interview with The Ellen DeGeneres Show last month, Rimes addressed the rumors that she was struggling with an eating disorder. "[The press has] been very irresponsible [about] calling a lot of people fat or anorexic or bulimic or whatever it may be," she said. "It seems like bullying now instead of really taking these diseases seriously that a lot of people are going through."
