    Interesting that the editor of Shape has suddenly discovered that just because you work out a lot while having your affair, it doesn't mean you should be glorified by the magazine.

    The problem wasn't the cover, but the general idea. "How to deal with the stress of having an affair."

    Shape should apologize for choosing a cover pic in which she has a goofy-ass expression.

    Maybe it's her O face.

    She's been on the cover three times?

    If so, I'd keep my eyes closed if doing it with her.

    No kidding. She is not a particularly attractive woman.

    I've always found her particularly attractive, guess I'm odd.

    "Just so all my fans know, I'm getting to the bottom of this," LeAnn tweeted. "It's the first I've heard of this. Shape is throwing me a party next week as a thank you and a congrats for being on their cover for the 3rd time. I find this very contradictory. I love you all!!"

    On Friday Latona backpedaled on her apology, tweeting a blog post titled "Setting the Record Straight" at LeAnn.

    "I stand by the fact that LeAnn's story is compelling--and her courage and strength in the face of so much adversity is compelling," she wrote. "That is why I put her on the cover of Shape for what is now the third time."

    I've heard of an insincere apology. But never one that had to be basically retracted.

    She has a man face. Just like Jillian Michaels.
