LeAnn Rimes Donates Shoes

Peggy Joyce was in the right place at the right time. The stay-at-home Ohio mom happened to be hanging out on Twitter Wednesday when LeAnn Rimes announced she’d just done some spring cleaning. “3 SOLID hours of closet organization,” the country star Tweeted, sharing photos of her newly arranged clothing and accessories. “Everyone has a vice….mine are shoes and handbags :)” So Joyce chimed in. “anything u want to donate to me? From OH and lost job and have a 16 month old. Bad year..I will pay for shipping. Thanks!! XO” After a few Tweets back and forth about logistics, Rimes announced that she’d pulled some items for the struggling mom. “I have a few pair of flip flops for the summer and tennis shoes in your size….hope it helps.” Joyce, who asked Khlo√© Kardashian for a similar donation, was obviously touched. “When I get items I will pay it forward somehow to someone in need,” she Tweeted. —Kate Hogan

I’m not saying it’s not a nice thing to do, but…. this isn’t that worthy of praise. I do stuff like that frequently because it is the right thing to do. So, yes, yay for LeAnn for not being selfish/wasteful, but I hope that soon this will be a common enough phenomenon that no one is praised for it.

I will only see LeAnn as a cheater and a liar.

A little harsh ladies. I think it is a great reminder for everyone to make sure that we are helping others when we can. Her private life is really none of our business. No need to post mean comments.

A few pairs of USED flip flops and tennis shoes? C’mon LeAnne. If you knew her shoe size, couldn’t you have at least sent her NEW flip flops? Maybe even splurged at Payless? Sorry, I’m not finding anything to woot about here.

Even if it does become common, people should still be praised for good deeds. There’s nothing wrong with praising the good. Trying to knock down actually sounds a little selfish to me.

It’s newsworthy because it’s nice and how fun will be it for this gal to say “see these shoes? guess who gave them to me?” And what is up with those who will never let her live down what she did. I hate the idea of forever damning someone for one bad decision – yes, it was a biggie, but still, forever?

flip flops and tennis shoes? yawn. it’s not like she donated any glam heels or shoes she won to a televised event or anything.

Nashville doesn’t forgive easily. Vince Gill and Amy Grant kind of lost popularity after they dumped their respective spouses. I think LeAnne will too. I mean, she was caught on tape with Eddie, and still lied about dating him

Oh please. Out of her probably hundreds of pairs of shoes, she sends this poor woman a pair of USED flip flops and USED sweaty tennis shoes. It’s only newsworthy because it’s so shameful.
