LeAnn Rimes Isn’t Sorry Her Affair With Eddie Cibrian Ruined Two Families

Eye Roll 19

leann rimes, eddie cibrianIn a recent teary interview with E!, LeAnn Rimes admits she doesn't regret having an affair with Eddie Cibrian while they were both married to other people, but she hates how she handled the whole thing.

You may remember that the pair fell in love in 2009 while making the Lifetime movie Northern Lights and ultimately left their spouses Dean Sheremet and Brandi Glanville. "I call it insanity! Absolute insanity," she said of falling for each other. "But nothing ever happened between us except for on camera, you know, during the film ... Absolutely nothing. I had no idea what life was throwing me and I had no idea how to handle it ... But all I knew was I could not ... we couldn't stop connecting in some way. And it was the hardest thing I've ever been through in my life."

The hardest thing that she's been through! What about their devastated and humiliated spouses? What about Eddie's kids who now have to deal with constantly bickering parents?

"I wish I handled it differently because I wish it could've been better for me, for Brandi, for Dean, for Eddie, and for everyone else," Rimes explained. "I know in this situation it's gonna take some time, all I wish is that everyone that was hurt, that we hurt, that I hurt, can be happy."

Sorry, but I am not buying this so-called mea culpa. Her biggest regrets seem to be looking like the bad guy in all of this. For most of her life, she has been the sweet-faced, country crooner. Now being branded a home-wrecking hussy is almost too much for her to bear. "I'm like, can someone come up with anything like more, I don't know, original?" she joked, before beginning to cry.

It's certainly been hard for her to deal with the most vicious of critics. Her recent emotional breakdown can partly be attributed to that. It also doesn't help that Brandi is very vocal about how much she dislikes LeAnn. But it seems all the pain and suffering -- hers and that of others -- has all been worth it for the star. "When you endure those kind of hardships, at the end of the day if you can't make it through that, you can't make it," she said. "And we've made it through a lot ... We fought for each other."

Do you think LeAnn is really sorry for how much the affair devastated their loved ones?

I think she is. But I'm really tired of hearing about it over and over. Will journalists ever stop writing about them?

I really wish she would just go away and quit talking about it. I think she just makes herself look worse the more she talks about it.....Quit be mean to the kids Mom, actually try to work with her, quit talking about it in public & work on your music & try to make amends-in private, please.

LeAnn only ruined ONE marriage. Eddie ruined the other.

To even think about the feelings of others involved at all says an awful lot to me. I have a cousin who was diagnosed with all sorts of cancer last year and all that her husband could do was jump in bed with someone who did not give a flying flip about the impact that doing such a thing would have on my cousin who sadly passed away on the Monday before Thanksgiving, may she haunt the little word that I can't say!!!

God bless you and LeAnn always!!!

Brandi isn't vocal about how she dislikes Leann, she is vocal about how Leann disrespects her, exploits her kids, and encourages her fans to taunt her. The problem is that the media has bought into Leann's hype. They cute and paste this articles without questioning them. Leann isn't the victim. Did you all see how many times she tweeted that she didn't have to respect Brandi when two of her fans told her to be respectful? Yet no one wrote an article about this. No one called Leann out on this. Even today, Leann has been taunting. Yet we don't hear anyone calling Leann out on this bad behavior. Leann RUINED TWO marriages. Since she didn't tell Eddie no, she is just as responsible for ruining Eddie's marriage as Eddie is.

Can I just say crying requires real tears and not crunching up your face and pretending one second and then talking normally when the next question comes up, and by the way it was in sequence so there was no editing or cutting on the scene. Please she comes off as so fake. I don't believe a word she says.

how come she is getting full blame for this? She didn't cheat with herself, it takes two...

And I'm not saying she isn't in the wrong, because clearly she is, but we need to remember that she is only human, just like the rest of us. We all make mistakes, some worse than others. It's sad her mistake had to help ruin two families... but if both families were really that happy and great, then do you think this affair would have happened? 

Anyway... the deed is done, no turning back now... all she can do is move on, and we need to respect that and let it go! She's not the first and wont be last to have an affair!


Rita Says

LeAnn is a man and Eddie is into her.  What does that say?

LeAnn said "I hate the word 'homewrecker' What would you like us to call you, Miss Perfect? Slut? Whore? Is that better? You cheated on your husband and ruined another marriage!! Face the facts!
