She did things, ok? Things that you might not think are too great. Sure, she and Eddie Cibrian homewrecked their way to a brand new marriage, but she’s sorry. She knows that she hurt people. So can you please just stop talking about it now?
This is the gist of this new interview LeAnn did, which – you’ll love this – is part of a special that’s going to be airing on E! called E! Special: LeAnn Rimes. But I’ll go ahead and give you specific quotes anyway.
On regret: “I don’t like the word regret. I wish I handled it differently because I wish I could have been better for me, for Brandi, for Dean, for Eddie, for everyone else. I know, in this situation, it’s going to take some time. All I wish is that everyone that was hurt, that we hurt, that I hurt, can be happy.”
On her “stay” in “rehab”: “When you look around and you go ‘I’m crying, like, uncontrollably, no one can help me,’ that’s when I knew I had to seek help…I was incredibly depressed and not quite sure of who I was.”
On all us meanies: “People are so quick to judge and make decisions for themselves about situations they know absolutely nothing about.”
LeAnn also said that “no one will ever understand how much thought and hurt were put into our decision,” speaking about the affair, and even Eddie popped in to say this:
“My heart goes out to her every single time she’s getting bashed for something. It’s unfair for her and it’s unfair for us. [The affair] wasn’t frivolous, you know.”
Whatever, guys. Team Brandi.
