LeAnn Rimes is looking mighty fine these days and the country superstar, who donned a bikini for the cover of “Shape” magazine’s October 2010 issue, credits her finely-toned physique to a combination of punches and fancy footwork.
“The funny thing is that all I’ve added into my routine is a dance class, like twice a week,” LeAnn told Access Hollywood of her svelte body at the MusiCares Tribute to Barbra Streisand in Los Angeles on Friday. “I love dancing. And I kick-box like, all the time. I love boxing. It’s my thing. That burns some serious calories!
“I’m not like, a diet person,” she continued. “I eat what I want, drink what I want, no big deal. I just am active.”
LeAnn also revealed that her love of dance has earned her multiple offers to join ABC’s mega reality hit, “Dancing with the Stars” – an idea she’s still considering.
“They’ve asked three times and I just haven’t been able to do it because it really is a huge commitment,” LeAnn told Access of joining the dance competition show. “They asked again this year.”
However, if LeAnn does join the show, it’ll be on one condition: that she is partnered with a “great friend” of hers, “So You Think you Can Dance” second season winner, Benji Schwimmer (aka: “Dancing” pro Lacey Schwimmer’s brother).
“I actually told Benji, ‘I would only do it with you. We’d have to do it together,’” LeAnn told Access. “So, we’ve talked about it, it just hasn’t happened. Maybe one day.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, LeAnn became engaged to actor Eddie Cibrian in December.
Monday will mark their first Valentine’s Day together as an engaged couple but the pair have yet to solidify their plans for the romantic day.
“Valentine’s Day is Eddie and me and his kids, so I don’t know what we’re going to do,” LeAnn told Access. “We’re going to all hang and have a good time.”
