LeAnn Rimes talks about her bikini body

I ate a huge meal and then looked at LeAnn Rimes’ Instagram photos where she was showing off her tight stomach in a bikini, so I got Rimes on the phone.

“Your bikini photos make me feel fat,” I said.

Rimes laughed. (She performs Saturday at Primm Valley Resorts.)

Monday’s tabloids ran their own photos of her in a Valentine’s weekend bikini. I asked her how she stays in shape.

“I work out a lot, because I like to eat,” she said. “And I love wine. I have to figure out a way to enjoy that somehow” without gaining a ton of weight.

Rimes boxes, jumps rope and does Pilates. She works out an hour to an hour and a half every day, five or six days a week.

“I guess I do train pretty hard,” she said.

“Is there anybody you want to box?” I asked.

“Haha. Um. I don’t think so. I like my face too much. And I like my brain. I can only imagine how I’d get rocked if I got hit too much.

“I love to box,” she said. “I have to say, I’m actually pretty good at it.”

Six years ago, Rimes trained in mixed martial arts for about a year.

“It was super fun. But I ended up with bruises all over my body, all the time.”

“As you know,” I said, “the UFC is based in Vegas, so if you could get back into MMA, I’m sure we could find a place for you.”

“I could always have a second career!” she joked.

“Ronda Rousey is waiting for you,” I said.

“Oh my God, I can only imagine. She’s fantastic. I love her. But I would be dancing around the ring as far away from her as possible.”

Rimes and her husband, Eddie Cibrian, just spent a romantic Valentine’s weekend in an RV at the beach without the kids.

“I thoroughly get into every holiday,” because the godparents who helped raise her “celebrated everything.”

“I turn into Cupid on Valentine’s. I turn into the Easter bunny on Easter. Cupcakes and valentine’s everywhere!”

She has a new single out in England with singer-songwriter David Gray called, ahem, “Snow in Vegas,” although the phrase “snow in Vegas” is just a metaphor for when a dying romance gets magically rekindled by a night of libidinous lust.

Rimes is in the studio working on a new Christmas album.

“It’s kind of odd talking about Christmas songs in February. But it’s all very odd. It’s 80 degrees outside, and we’re talking about Christmas!”

PENN JILLETTE SNORTS CHOCOLATE

Have you ever snorted chocolate? I hope not. I mean, honestly. However, if you do it for comedy, go for it.

Rio headliner Penn Jillette snorted chocolate with his friends for the new episode of his audio podcast, “Penn’s Sunday School.”

What in the world?

According to British media, the upsurge of snorting fine grains of cocoa was invented by some chocolate maker so there would be something at a birthday party for the Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts that they hadn’t tried yet.

Jillette regularly says he doesn’t do drugs and never has. But, you know. Then came chocolate!

He said he was skeptical beforehand, but he liked the snorting sensation better than expected, and he rubbed his gums like cocaine users do “in the movies,” he said.

“It feels like you’re in a chocolate palace,” Jillette joked. “I think that there may be a chocolate-snorting bar in Vegas soon.”

This was the first time Jillette has consumed chocolate in months, as he has been getting trimmer, losing 85 pounds since Thanksgiving, he said.

Meanwhile, I was just telling you last week that Andrew Dice Clay sounded high on weed in his podcast, “Rollin’ With Dice & Wheels,” and then I called him up and we talked about weed.

Since then, Clay has put out two new episodes. One episode is described potly as “420 friendly.” (Clay is performing March 12 at the Hard Rock Hotel.)

Speaking of podcasts, on my “Doug Elfman Show,” I have a fun chat with local musicians/media members Ginger Bruner and Beth Lano.

You can download or stream Jillette’s, Clay’s and my podcasts for free and immediately on Apple’s iTunes and Android’s Podcast Addict app.
