Rimes reprimanded by rude diner over thin frame

Country singer Leann Rimes had a run-in with a rude diner on Saturday (20Aug11) after she approached the star's table in an Illinois restaurant to urge her to eat more.

The Blue star has come under criticism for her super-slim frame, with the blonde beauty repeatedly having to assure fans she's perfectly healthy.

Rimes had to defend her figure once again while eating out with husband Eddie Cibrian and his parents in Chicago over the weekend - when a woman marched over and insisted she should indulge in more calories.

On her Twitter.com page, Rimes writes, "How dare someone come to me at a table w/ (with) the boys & tell me I need to eat something. What is wrong with people!? AS I'm stuffing my face... have another drink and maybe take a class in manners! Cheers!

"Once again DONE talking to rude people who have NO right to have an opinion on my body. Out of line! If it happened to someone who wasn't a "celebrity" it would be rude, but to a public figure it's socially acceptable?!"
