Just Because Eddie Cibrian Cheated on Brandi Glanville Does NOT Mean He Will Cheat on LeAnn

Eye Roll 9

cheaterRumors are swirling that Eddie Cibrian, a known cheater when he was married to Brandi Glanville, ALSO cheated on LeAnn Rimes early in their relationship with the waitress Scheana, whose recent appearance on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills shook Brandi to the core. Though it isn't being explicitly said, the indication here is that Cibrian is likely cheating on Rimes either now or soon will in the future.

I call BS, though.

Ever heard the old adage "once a cheater, always a cheater"? Admit it. We all have. Well, the truth is, it's a lie. I don't know Cibrian, but I do know men (and women) who have cheated and many of them have learned their lessons. They won't ever cheat again. The people who say "once a cheater" are probably those who were cheated on.

The truth is much murkier. We all want a black and white, clear way to tell who will cheat and who will not, but it's just not that simple. A man who has cheated before may have been unhappy in his relationship.

A man I am close to cheated on his college girlfriend almost every single weekend in college. He tried to break up with her at least a dozen times, and every time, she started to cry. Being young and unable to deal with female emotion, he just decided to do whatever he wanted to do.

Fifteen years later, he has been married -- and completely faithful -- to one woman for more than a decade. He is one of the most loyal people I know.

Another woman I know cheated on her first husband. She is remarried now after years of counseling, and I know without a doubt she would never cheat again.

These are just my personal stories. The world is full of stories of people who cheated for great reasons at the time, and either they matured and grew out of it or they learned their lesson from the way things ended.

Cheating isn't a sign that someone will cheat again in the future. As much as we would like to believe there is one easy way to tell, there just simply is not. Cibrian may cheat. He may not. But either way, it won't be because he cheated before.

Do you think "once a cheater, always a cheater"?

i think that it's a case by case basis depending on the people in the relationship and their devotion to each other. "once a cheater, always a cheater" i think stems more from a nuclear family style of life. basically, it was only a few decades ago that a woman would marry a man for security and financial stability while she popped out babies and took care of the home. she didn't have the option to care about his indiscretions because they had an "upstanding family life" to uphold. so she becomes ok with his dalliances, because maybe they married young at a time when that was the right thing to do - not necessarily because they really were the loves of each others' lives. 

and then again, there are some people who are dogs and will be dogs until their last breath. that's just how some people are.

I will always believe the old adage "once a cheater always a cheater" but I was raised by womanizing father who I know for fact has cheated on everyone woman he has been with in past 25 years maybe more. I have comforted most of them and told them the truth but more often than not they forgave him. I was even paid once by my father in high school to keep silent while he went out of town with another woman and his gf took care of my brother and me, of course kept the dough and spilled the beans. But there many men out there who for whatever reason cheat.

If Eddie isn't cheating on Leann, then why does Leann's "friend"(LIZZY) go EVERYWHERE with Leann and Eddie, even their honeymoon? Wasn't Eddie taking photos of Leann making out with this woman? Eddie is cheating on Leann, she spends way too much time trying to convince people that they are happy and trying to be like Brandi. Eddie cheated on Brandi and that does mean that he will or has cheated on Leann, Leann and Dean were going on double dates with Eddie and Brandi. And look at all of Leann's staged photo-ops. It's the same couple with them all the time.

Eddie Cibrian is a known cheater and is probably cheating on Leann Rimes right now! He is what he is! Brandi could not change that and neither will Leann. In this case he is "once a cheater always a cheater"

We don't know for a fact whether he has or will cheat on Leann, but there is a pretty good indication he will. After all, Dr Phill said something along the lines of "a person's past is a pretty good indicator of their future". I really doubut he would change for another woman.

Past predicts future....he wasn't an 18 year old college kid screwing up he was a serial cheater, they don't change or grow up, they continue on their ways...and no, I haven't been cheated on, but I have seen how infidelity destroys not just the spouse, but the children involved, people like Eddie Cibrian don't change, they validate their self worth by the number of women they can bed..I ALMOST feel sorry for LeAnnn, she wanted to believe SHE was different....
