Shape editor apologizes for LeAnn Rimes cover

The Editor of Shape magazine, Valerie Latona, has apologized for putting LeAnn Rimes on the October cover of their magazine. She has called the decision to put LeAnn on the cover “a terrible mistake.”

Why? Because she’s a husband-stealer.

In an email she sent to her employees, she explained that they weren’t trying to glorify LeAnn’s actions, but were only trying to show how LeAnn found strength in exercise.

She said, “Please know that our putting her on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal, but to show how we are all human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment. 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.”

What did you think of their decision to put her on the cover? Were you upset over it?
