LeAnn Rimes, after a month in a voluntary treatment program, is heading to Katie Couric.
The country singer will appear on Thursday’s episode of “Katie" to discuss her life and career in the wake of tabloid scrutiny over everything from her former marriage to her battle with anxiety.
“People look at you and go, ‘Why are you struggling?’ … No one can quite understand why you hurt so badly,” Rimes says in a preview clip.
In the past few years, it's been the 30-year-old singer's personal life that's attracted plenty of attention.
Her announcement in late August that she would seek treatment for anxiety and stress fueled tabloid speculation.
Now, however, Rimes is ready to begin again.
“I feel like I am starting over,” she tells Couric, “even though I've had all these years behind me.”
