As long as she directly benefits from the result, clearly, it’s all good.
Rimes speaks out to People magazine about the heat surrounding her and Eddie Cibrian, the man who some say was “lured away” by the wiles and charms of the woman — the legend! — Leann Rimes. She claims that she’s remorseful about pulling Eddie away from what was oh-so-clearly a bad relationship, but feels happy and optimistic about the snafu’s general outcome:
“I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else … I take responsibility for everything I’ve done. I hate that people got hurt,” says Rimes. “But I don’t regret the outcome.”
Of course you don’t, Leann. It’s the best thing that’s happened to your career since a shitload of your songs were used on Coyote Ugly all those years ago. This is the most publicity you’ve gotten in eons, girl. So, yeah. Go ahead and own it. It’s not like you have a whole lot else to do these days, between filming your Lifetime movies and waiting three years to release new albums or whatever.
Rimes continues on, discussing how emotionally-charged and spiritually-driven the beginnings of her affair was with Cibrian:
“It was very emotionally driven. I never once thought what I was doing was okay.”
But clearly, it all worked out in the end. Cibrian and Rimes ended up doing that whole happily-ever-after thing, Rimes’ ex-husband Dean Sheremet (you know, the non-gay gay one) is supposedly dating a
decoy woman by the name of Sarah Silver, who happens to be some kind of bigwig NYC photographer or whatever and Cibrian’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, well … she’s still just as crazy.
See? Not much has been turned upside down, nothing has truly changed all that much, and life obviously does go on.
So shut the fuck up about it, Leann Rimes. We’ve totally heard enough. Go be smitten and schmoopy, while tastefully subdued and solemn, all over some other country’s media.
