LeAnn Rimes Opens Up About Eddie Cibrian Affair

leann rimes opens up about affair

Earlier this week, we were impressed and pleased to learn that LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian, AND Eddie's ex Brandi Glanville all showed up for Eddie & Brandi's son Jake's birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese!

In keeping with this whole "maturity thing," LeAnn has opened up about her affair with Eddie, and she had the following to say about her reasons for picking up with Eddie after things fell apart with her ex Dean Sheremet:

"I didn't have the tools to know how to do it the right way, how to let go the right way. I'd never been taught that."

"I think I felt really abandoned – I think 'abandoned' is a really good word – because of our divorce."

"Not only that, our divorce became so much bigger because it was publicized."

And here's LeAnn on how she feels now that she's engaged to Cibrian:

"I have … strength. I didn't have it at the time. So, it got really messy. I have learned a lot from that. I'm not glad it happened, but I know why it did."

As we said before, we're just glad to hear that LeAnn, Eddie, and Brandi were able to spend time together as friends for the kids. Hopefully the mature relationship between those three continues!

What do U think about LeAnn's comments/justification regarding her infidelity?

    she's disgusting. no doubt about it. a homewrecker.
    sorry, she is just gross to me.


  2. 2

    The strength she talks about has to be with the first wife. She was strong enough NOT to kill LeAnn or Eddie! I feel badly for the ex - not for LeAnn.

  3. 3

    *snores* not interested. She keeps talking about it, so what? It doesn't make me like her when she explains herself to me, all it does is make me more annoyed that she is still talking about it.

  4. 4

    Hell know she a slut not to mention she is soooo ugly !! Don't you worry Karma is a bitch these 2 have it coming to them!!

  5. 5

    This is NOT helping her public image…I cringed listening to that preview…She seems like a spoiled 28 year old brat.

    Listening to her and looking at her body language in the interview preview, I was disgusted. She can verbalize anything she wants to, but she is not sorry and looks as unapologetic as Tiger Woods.
    Slutz be slutz, no class there.

    poster girl for 'trash' spreading her misery so someone else gets to feel abandoned get therapy hoe

  8. 8

    Um..she didn't open up about anything. This is all the same crap she's been saying from the begining and its all very vague. She still doesn't admit to an affair.

  9. 9

    She didn't seem like the kind of person to do something like that, it's such a shame. I feel really bad for her ex-husband and Eddie's ex-wife.

    If she truly had a conscience/regretted cheating on her own husband with a married man, she would end her relationship with Eddie. Staying with him proves she's learned nothing from the experience, as she's continuing to show no moral character. She wouldn't be so "mature" in her public catharsis if they hadn't wound up together.

  11. 11

    while I'm totally against cheating in relationships, why does everyone trash LeAnne and worship Ange-ho-lina? Don't see how one is any different than the other .. That said, LeAnn seems more genuine than Ange.. But the sad thing is, if he cheated with you, he'll cheat on you.

  12. 12

    Some people are just selfish. There are no words to explain actions that potentially hurt another person. If you see a wedding ring, it's off limits. End of story.

  13. 13

    The way that she and Eddie took up together is pretty much unforgivable. The fact that she owned up to what she did is commendable. She knows what she did is wrong and is obviously embarrassed by the stupidity of her actions. Somewhere along the way she fell in love, it is what it is and hopefully they can all move forward and be happy. In all reality, Brandi is the lluck

  14. 14

    I feel so bad for Brandi having to share birthday party time with her cheater ex and the woman who he cheated with. That's asking a bit much in the name of civility. My ex did the same to me. We do separate birthday parties! Kids are perfectly happy.

  15. 15

    BS! The epitomy of immaturity, go with what feels good and use your "damaged" emotions as an excuse. They deserve each other. If the marriage you're in is broken then get out. But, don't be a coward and find someone else to use as a crutch before you let your partner know it's not working out. So narcissitic and self serving.

    Re: Anuradha Meddows-Mccartney Lennon-Bulsara – A lot of people don't like Angelina. I mostly see the media praising her but I've only met one or two people that actually like her despite her homewrecking ways.

  17. 17

    LeAnn needs to shut up about it and move on. Her thoughts on the whole thing got tired a long time ago.

  18. esj says – reply to this


    The hell you say you were abandoned. LOL. You abandoned your husband and your marriage. And you stuck your hands inside the pants of another woman's husband!

  19. 19

    Oh please. People are so hypocritical. The dumb slut fell IN LOVE with Eddie and divorced her husband for him. Eddie (well….he probably didn't fall in love with LeAnn…it was probably the money) divorced his wife for LeAnn as well. Happens EVERY DAY. Tori Spelling and her husband what's-his-face. Angelina and Brad (though at least Ange was single). Britney Spears and Fed-Ex (again, at least Brit was single). When people fall in love…they JUST DO. It's crazy. You can't explain it. It makes people do crazy things. Most people commenting would do the exact same thing if they fell hard like LeAnn did. And really…"off limits". NOBODY IS OFF LIMITS EXCEPT CHILDREN AND THE DEVELOPMENTALLY DISABLED. Adults are of legal age and can make their own decisions. Why the hell should someone stay in a marriage in which they are not in love? If LeAnn didn't love her husband and Eddie didn't love his wife then they have the right to divorce. The timing is shitty and it's hurtful, but if two people want to be together and divorce their spouses for the other…then that is THEIR BUSINESS. That being said, anyone can see Eddie is a huge opportunist who is using LeAnn for her money. I heard Eddie cheated with Brandi on his first wife…so Brandi had this coming anyway. For anyone who believes in karma. But regardless, Eddie just SCREAMS OPPORTUNIST to me. LeAnn better watch out.l

    She 'didn't have the tools' to do it the right way? Seriously? She didn't have the tools to be a good person and not sleep with someone else's husband? I'm sure her parents were pretty happy to hear her say that - that they didn't teach her how to be a decent human being? She's a pathetic, self-absorbed individual and really not worth my time. And for the record, I pretty much think the same thing about Angelina Jolie - selfish woman who will rationalize her awful behavior no matter what.

    Re: Anuradha Meddows-Mccartney Lennon-Bulsara – You see, its not the cheating itself thats the REASON LR is being crucified so much. Its what she has done AFTER that. She has to be so smug about her 'prize', rubbing it in his ex-wife B randi's face, not content to just take Brandi's husband, but now claiming the kids as HER OWN, too! She even talked one of the boys into allowing her to sing at his school's FAMILY day! Thats right, "FAMILY" day. A day when Brandi should have been talking at her son's school about what she does for a living, and Eddie reading a script or something. Instead, LR muscled in on FAMILY day, and sang, forcing the MOTHER to keep away from her own son's school. LR wasn't even engaged to Eddie then, so she certainly isn't even family, yet she yet again, muscled Brandi out of her kids lives. After all this, anyone who says LR seems 'genuine' (NOTHING LR does is straight forward or un-premeditated) is completely effed in the head and has no idea….at…..ALL what they are referring to here. So Anuradha Meddows-Mccartney Lennon-Bulsara, perhaps you should actually RESEARCH who it is that you defend, because you couldn't have it more the WRONG WAY AROUND if you tried.

    Re: coffeeteaoramiee – Ironically, you have it the other way around. Firstly, Angelina is NOT a homewrecker, and never was. The affair didn't happen and its now been proven that Brad and Angelina were innocent all along. She did NOTHING WRONG, was the VICTIM of a witch-hunt. Secondly, the media HATE Angelina, especially the tabloids. They are all up (the REAL cheater and homewrecker) Aniston's arsehole and anal-rimming her arse, making her look like a sweet innocent apple-pie butter-wouldnt-melt-in-her-mouth when she is a cold, conniving, manipulative scheming bitch. The media would have you believe that no one likes Angelina. Yet away from the media, Angelina has more fans than haters because people can see through Aniston's slimy manipulative lies and her being in chorts with the press to attack Angelina. Angelina is admired for being a decent, moral down to earth person who does a lot of good for others. People can see into Angelina's soul and thus she has a LOT more admirers and supporters than the duped haters. I've only come across 2 or three who were manipulated by Aniston/Huvane/Handler/the trashloid press hence hate her. The vast overwhelming majority can see the truth and support and like her.

    she only has the 'tools to be A TOOL"

  24. 24

    What a load of bullshit! SHE felt "abandoned" by her divorce?? SHE'S the one out fucking around. I pray to everything holy (and I'm an ATHIEST) that AFTER they marry Eddie fucks around on her~PUBLICLY!

  25. 25

    "I didn't have the tools to know how to do it the right way, how to let go the right way. I'd never been taught that." God it's so frustrating when homewreckers like her blame absolutely everyone and everything but themselves for their actions.

  26. 26

    Umm… Way to misquote, Perez.. The divorce she's talking about is her parents' divorce when she was 13!!!!!!! That's what she was actually talking about in the interview. I doubt many 13 year olds have the right tools to handle divorce well..

  27. 27

    Re: Gracelesskel – if that's so, then why does she keep saying "OUR divorce?" pretty sure i never referred to my parents' divorce as "ours."

  28. 28

    I can't believe I have to defend this skank because I HATE Leann Rimes BUT…..Perez totally misquoted her. She was talking about her parents divorce….not her own.

    She wanted what she wanted when she wanted it. You can put lipstick on a…

    Re: Cokie_ – Wait a minute…what does Brandi do for a living? If she is working, is it appropriate to tell children what her job is?

  31. 31

    PEOPLE… WAKE UP…. Her and Eddie fell in love… MORE than the people they were both with at the time… WHY NOT PERSUE IT???? Just because you have someone else?????
