LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are in love, y’all. And now they’re appearing on national television – together, talking about their relationship, and not moving more than an inch from one another when they are in the same frame.
Thoughts? Is LeAnn trying to come across as a sympathetic figure, and do you feel differently now after hearing her side of the story – and her history – on camera?
And no, it’s not because ex-husband Dean Sheremet was actually gay, sorry to quash those rumors … for today.
LeAnn, the female half of the Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes affair — OK, wait, let me reiterate: LeAnn, the blonde half of the Eddie Cibrian-LeAnn Rimes affair (ah, much better) reached out recently to Shape magazine about — what else — her affair with a then-married co-star, Eddie Cibrian, and why she did it:
“I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right … I did one of the most selfish things that I possibly could do, in hurting someone else.”
“It wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us [LeAnn and Dean]. As we got older, we grew apart.”
But don’t worry, y’all; she’s learned from this experience, and girlfriend has grown. Live with love and grow from love or whatever the fuck, I guess.
“There are lessons in it for me to learn … The most important thing [is] cultivating strength from rough situations. After going through this, I know I can face anything.”
OK. Is it going to be, like, next year, and we’re still going to be hearing about this affair and exactly how it unfolded time and time again? Is this going to be the catalyst of the prophets’ end of days? 2012 is fast-approaching … and yes, if you’re wondering, I do think Le Ann can continue in this vein for the next year and a half.
Eddie Cibrian is getting away with murder. Lucky him, right? The guy cheats on his wife, Brandi Glanville, and then leaves her for LeAnn Rimes and the press, along with his Brandi, blames her. And over a year later, Brandi is still swiping her claws in LeAnn’s direction, saying that while LeAnn thought that she’d successfully taken Eddie away from her, the formerly married couple were still getting it on on the side.
When Us Weekly recently asked Brandi Glanville, 37, about reports that she hooked up with estranged husband Eddie Cibrian, 37, after he’d already left her for LeAnn Rimes, 28, she coyly replied, “Eddie and I both know the truth.”
A source confirms in the new Us Weekly that the two spouses, who filed for divorce in August 2009, were indeed intimate last fall.
“Leann stole her husband, so Brandi doesn’t owe her,” the source says.
“And Brandi couldn’t care less. She’s already moved on to another relationship.” Indeed, Glanville told Us she’s dating an “amazing man.”
It’s pretty sad to see two beautiful women fight over the same scummy, poorly behaved man. Especially when they’re both fighting for the same thing: His fidelity. Neither of them are going to get that at this point, you know?
Brandi’s hurt feelings are totally understandable. As the mother of Eddie’s children, it must have been heart wrenching to see him in the papers with LeAnn, knowing that they’d started something behind her back. However, Eddie’s the one who gave up his family and his good guy status to get some younger ass on the side. Blaming “the other woman” is just so old and unproductive.
At any rate, the show is not dead, and LeAnn Rimes actually performed as a guest star this past week, debuting her latest single, Swingin’. So, ah, appropriate, LeAnn! Did Eddie co-write this for you? Produce it? Inspire it? No, I’m kidding. I have no idea what this song is actually about. It could be about, you know, swangin’ from rope swings into the local crick. It could be about swangin’ on the swangs at the muni park — the one that three counties share.
Who knows. Who cares.
The video? I care about. So much. And you should, too, because it’s LeAnn clumsily stumping around the stage with her flat feet and boyshorts bikini, sounding not too awful. Really.
Uh, no? ‘Cause she’d probably go all Fatal Attraction on him or something and he’d wake up in a seedy motel room on the side of Route 14 in a bathtub full of ice, missing three or four fingers and toes, and with his anus feeling rather full.
Naturally, the pot-stirrers are surfacing since there’s been no Eddie/LeAnn/Brandi drama for the past eighteen days or so, and Exclusive! Sources! spoke recently to Star, a magazine I tend to believe and disbelieve along with the lunar cycles. The Exclusive! Sources! claim that Eddie’s gone back to Brandi, but only for the sex, and LeAnn is in the dark (probably hiding with a knife and strapped up with some C4). However, Eddie caught wind of the vicious, vicious lies being spread through such reputable literary publications and went — where else? — to his Twitter account to refute the magazine’s claims:
Once again my ex has stooped to a new low attempting to sabotage my beautiful relationship with LeAnn. Not surprisingly the ONLY magazine that decided to run the story shares the same credibility and delusion as my ex. They should be ashamed of themselves.
So, yeah. Slam bang, Brandi, and back the fuck off. No one’s gonna mess with little Eddie’s little lady, LeAnn, and especially not you, hoss.
Oh, and buddy Ed? You might come across as a little more convincing if you weren’t going after Star magazine for crying out loud. It’s not as if this shit was published in People or on TMZ. Get your “celebrity” gossip rags straight for fuck’s sake. You might look like the bigger person one of these days.
Though the divorce hasn’t even been finalized, it hasn’t stopped Eddie Cibrian’s estranged wife from continually speaking out about her husband’s affair with country star, Leann Rimes. Brandi’s latest interview emerges from the depths of In Touch, where she calls Eddie and Leann both cheaters. Again. She also insinuates that they both need professional help, but she wants to be friends with the new couple, too:
“They’re both cheaters,” Eddie Cibrian’s soon-to-be-ex, Brandi Glanville, tells In Touch exclusively. “I hope he gets help, but if he’s a cheater, he’s going to cheat forever.”
When Eddie Cibrian left his wife, Brandi Glanville, for singer Leann Rimes, it took her a long time to forgive. But she’ll never forget what he did to her — and thinks Leann shouldn’t, either.
“I don’t know how she deals with it, that he was lying to both of us,” Brandi, 36, tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. Brandi, who still lived with her husband for three months after his affair was exposed, adds that until the scandal broke, “there was no lull in our sex life.”
“They’re both cheaters,” she says. “I hope he gets help, but if he’s a cheater, he’s going to cheat forever. The great thing is, it doesn’t affect me anymore. I’m done.”
Indeed, though Brandi has definitely moved on and has a new boyfriend, she’s confident that she and her ex can have a civil relationship.
“I know Eddie loves me — I’m the mother of his children. But it’s a different kind of love now,” she says. “I do have resentment toward him, but I still wish him well. I hope we can all be friends one day, to be honest.”
What do you think? Will this unlikely trio be sitting down for anything more than a good, old-fashioned hair-pulling anytime soon?
