OK, apparently? This fall is the summer of revenge engagements. Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo first, then Jessica Simpson announces her engagement to whatever-his-name-is football player boyfriend. Didn’t, you know, seem odd or anything. These are two couples that are so in sync, guys, that they even come to the same rash decisions together. No harm, no foul.
Now, however, we have the engagement of Dean Sheremet, former backup dancer and ex-husband of LeAnn Rimes. Sheremet, who was rumored for the longest time to be gay, is now a New York City chef, and has admitted to popping the question to his photographer girlfriend, Sarah Silver. All of this comes in the wake of ‘Is LeAnn engaged? Is she not engaged? Does anyone actually give a shit?’
Naturally, LeAnn’s come forward to congratulate the couple, and she backtracks left and right, inventing imaginary people who are calling her congratulatory bluff:
Congrats to @deansheremet and @sarah_silver on your engagement! A little birdie told me the happy news last night. Wishes for a life full of happiness.
And later, the other half of Eddie Cibrian tweeted:
my congrats is from my heart. Sorry if you don’t understand it. I do not need the publicity, I get plenty. please stop passing [judgment].
Yeah, guys. Stop passing judgement on LeAnn Rimes. Your words cut her deep, don’t you know. Can’t someone just be happy for someone else without it being for show? Chuff and mutter, for fuck’s sake.
