LeAnn Rimes -- the woman who put on the perpetually smiley face after being the other woman in a love triangle involving a married couple -- now says she can't cope with the stress ... and has checked into a treatment center.

A rep for Rimes ... who has spent the past year habitually tweeting out bikini photos of herself ... just released a statement to People.com saying, "LeAnn has voluntarily entered a 30-day in-patient treatment facility to cope with anxiety and stress."

"While there will be speculation regarding her treatment, she is simply there to learn and develop coping mechanisms."

Rimes also issued a statement herself ... saying, "This is just a time for me to emotionally check out for a second and take care of myself and come back in 30 days as the best 30-year-old woman I can be."

"All the things in my life will be there when I get out, but you know what? I'm hoping they're not going to affect me as much ... I'll have the tools to know how to deal with them."

"Checking out for a second". BS. She's in a 30-day treatment program for SOMETHING! PR spin.

During her stay in rehab they will teach her new coping mechanisms by having her repeatedly say 'I am pretty, I am pretty, I am pretty'. Hell, after 30 days of that even KimK would come out believing it......

NO, Leann< you have an eating disorder. You have a cheater that is costing you (and I bet you finally figured out Eddie isn't all that) plus your finally being eating alive by cheating on your husband that moved on, and get a better catch. You suck Leann.

Oh bullshiat - get a therapist, you're already on vacation 365 days a year, you must just be SOOO stressed. I haven't had a vacation since 1994. So tired of hearing these BS excuses. How about just don't say anything?
Eff off.

Eddie's a cheater, Leann, as you know, so can you really trust that he'll go 30 days without sex?
