Nothing tastes as good as speaking your mind feels!

LeAnn Rimes' lean frame is constantly under scrutiny, but the 29-year-old is adamant that she does not have an eating disorder. On Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Rimes opened up about the controversy surrounding her weight.

"No, I am not [anorexic or bulimic]," the country star said. "[The press has] been very irresponsible [about] calling a lot of people fat or anorexic or bulimic or whatever it may be. It seems like bullying now instead of really taking these diseases seriously that a lot of people are going through."

Eddie Cibrian's wife said she's "kind of gotten over" the speculation over whether she's too thin. "[But anorexia and bulimia] are diseases, and using them as name calling [is] almost like bullying."

Another touchy topic for the country star? Her 2009 affair with Cibrian that broke up both of their respective marriages. "Obviously we made decisions that were not necessarily the right ones but it obviously brought us to the place where we are now," she said. "And, we're happy and we're married... And we've always put his kids [with ex-wife Brandi Glanville] first."

"I think we have both come to a really good place in our lives," she said. "And right now, I'm really at peace."
