Dean Sheremet ‘never saw it coming’ when LeAnn Rimes confessed her affair

wenn1874436

Dean Sheremet, the first (and only, for now) ex-husband of LeAnn Rimes, doesn’t speak publicly all that much. After LeAnn and Dean divorced in the wake of her affair with Eddie Cibrian, Dean quietly took his divorce settlement and moved to NYC. He took culinary classes and met a nice girl and now he’s happily remarried. He seems to have built a wonderful new life for himself and I like that he’s not giving weekly interviews about how damaged he is from the divorce. Dean is classy. But! He has a new interview with Access Hollywood – it’s actually a longer interview where he discusses his new life, meeting his new wife and how he learned of LeAnn’s infidelity.

Dean Sheremet learned that his wife LeAnn Rimes was cheating on him when she told him in a phone call. The dancer-turned-chef, who divorced the country singer in 2009, told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush on Thursday that he was blindsided when he learned that she was cheating on him with her married Northern Lights costar, Eddie Cibrian.

“I never saw it coming,” he admitted.

Sheremet, 32, revealed that Rimes called to tell him a magazine “may or may not have a picture of me and Eddie kissing.”

He was shocked and asked, “What do you mean, ‘May or may not have a picture?’ What does that mean?” he told Bush and co-host Kit Hoover. “It unfolded from there.”

Sheremet never imagined his wife would cheat on him. “You have that assumption that the person that you’re with would never do something like that,” he said.

Sheremet moved on and married photographer Sarah Silver, 37, in August 2011, four months after Rimes and Cibrian tied the knot. He admits that he and his ex haven’t kept in touch.

“We don’t really talk that much,” he said. “There’s not really a need to. I don’t really know what we would talk about.”

When asked if it bothers him to be asked about the situation two years later, Sheremet says no.

“It’s fine because I’ve really laid low during the whole thing. It’s part of my story and it’s the reason that I get to do awesome cooking segments. Whatever it is that gets me in the door is fine. I’m really a chef!”

[From People]

See? Doesn’t Dean sound like a nice guy? I’m sort of sorry that I always suspected he was gay. I think he’s just metrosexual and sensitive, and a serial monogamist. What’s sad is that he was incredibly loyal to LeAnn and he was good to her even in their divorce, and LeAnn doesn’t even realize that she let a good guy like this go. I thought the part of the interview where he discussed their marriage was very telling – that he was husband, father, friend to her when she needed him. God, LeAnn sucks. The only good thing that came out of this mess is that Dean is living a better life now.

      He’s sweet, his new wife is cute and they look very happy. Love that.

      Wow Leann even looks pretty-ish in that first pic. She was never a looker (obvs) but whatever little she had is gone gone gone.

      Eddie is gross. (Appropos to nothing but I had my fingers on the keyboard and it just came out. Good fingers, well typed)

    • Penny says:

      The way he found out put my mind back at the mini-cooper KStew scandal. If it weren’t for the paps, would either one of the cheaters fess up? Confessions were made not out of guilt or remorse but just a sense of self-preservation. Each wanted to insulate the situation after getting caught. Let’s face it both ladies entered deeply committed rel’s w textbook nice guys, took it for granted and got bored. The difference in contract for Leann was civil (marital), while KStew’s was bus’n, which means neither were free to pursue their mister (my masculine word for mistress) without fear of certain repercussions. End of story.

  1. Quinn says:

    he looks great!! Losing 125 lbs of crazy has done wonders for him, clearly.

  2. brin says:

    He really did dodge a bullet! Leann is toxic. It’s karmalicious to see Dean and Brandi doing so well.

    • HappyMom says:

      Sorry-I don’t see that Brandi is a shining example of doing great after a divorce.

      • brin says:

        She’s doing better than wewe.

      • HappyMom says:

        @brin-that’s a low bar. Leann is certifiable. However, I don’t think the heavy drinking, hooking up with questionable guys, cosmetic procedures and skanky clothes are doing her any favors.

      • Bex says:

        Oh HappyMom (are you perchance a Bonusmom too?) if your partner left you for another woman and you lost your kids 50% of the time maybe you’d understand where Brandi is coming from a little more.
        I also find it difficult to understand why someone who has labelled themselves as ‘happymom’ spends so much time trawling the internet looking to make negative comments about another mother.

      • HappyMom says:

        Eye roll. Brandi is as trashy as they come-and if you think her life is so wonderful that says something about your quality of life and the type of people you hang with. And just because I find her tacky does not mean I’m remotely a Leann supporter. As I stated above, she’s insane.

      • emmie_a says:

        HappyMom: I’m not sure how you can judge how someone is doing by their ‘skanky clothes’. Eye roll. And I’d say just by getting rid of Eddie, Brandi is doing very well.

      • brin says:

        I like people who own their sh!t not fake pathological liars.

      • bluhare says:

        I’m with HappyMom. If that makes me a troll looking to slam moms, so be it. Brandi Glanville needs rehab. She drinks and gets hammered, the alcoholic way of drinking. And, yes, I know from personal experience. RHOBH has not done her any favours at all other than her bank account. I had a lot more sympathy for her pre RH.

      • Emily C. says:

        I have nothing to say about Brandi’s clothes. (Except that I hate most of her shoes.) But she drinks way too much. She is endangering herself, and people who defend all her actions at all costs are not doing her any favors. The word for this is “enabling”.

        I think it is also extremely strange that someone is accused of being a stepmother because she finds something to criticize about Brandi Glanville. Just in case: I’m a married woman with no kids. Neither my husband nor I has ever been married before, and neither of us has ever cheated on anyone either. One of my parents is also a high-functioning alcoholic. You care about Brandi and her kids? Offer to drive her to AA.

      • Tammy says:

        I’m with happymom on this… Brandi is not doing well when she gets photographed with her boobs hanging out and tampon string visible… there’s no excuse for it. She is not the first woman to be cheated on and left & she won’t be the last. She’s not the first mom who had to share custody with their ex or got screwed in a divorce and she won’t be the last.

      • Babalon says:

        Your response to Brin is incredibly sexist. Gross.

      • tarheel tina says:

        DUI-3 years ago. pleaded no contest. never happened again.
        Fake pretended to marry her friend: 3 years ago. As in we’re partying in Vegas, lets PRETEND we got married. ::Clutching pearls yall:::
        Falling out of clothes incident: ONCE. She acknowledged it (via twitter) and said she discussed it with her oldest son so he would know that his mom made a mistake and there are consequences when you do things like that.

        Now if she were doing these things EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND, I’d get it. but its not.

        I went to Cancun in 2006. I got REAL sloppy. Photos were taken. my parents saw them and I was mortified. No tampon string/dress falling down but winning a bikini contest topless, keg stands and making out with different randoms in every pic is not classy at all. I have never done anything like that since.

        Some of these photos are still online to this day on other people’s albums. According to some of you people I guess I should be vilified if i have a couple beers this weekend tailgating at a football game because I so obviously need rehab.

      • Tammy says:

        Good to see the Brandi defenders out in full force. How anyone can ever defend someone driving drunk, is beyond me. I don’t care if it was only once and she got a DUI, she could have killed someone. I highly doubt it was only once that she drove drunk, just once she received a DUI. I don’t care how she dresses, what she does procedure wise to her face or how her hair looks, it’s the drinking that concerns me. She has questionable judgment. I mean, she picked up Eddie at a bar… :)

      • brin says:

        And wewe picked him up when she was married to Dean and he was married to Brandi. That’s trash.

      • NinaS says:

        Leann is allegedly a big boozer, drunk much of the time. I see far more photos of her drinking than Brandi.

      • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

        You guys, just because someone is better than Leanne Rimes does not mean someone is cool. Brandi Glanville is a hot mess, even if you hate Leanne Rimes. Denying it makes you look either crazy, or like a mean girl who will say anything –no matter how delusional– to put someone you don’t like down. Cheap hair McPlastic Face is not a shining example of moving on with grace.

      • Sloane Wyat tt says:

        I agree with Jackie Jormp Jomp and Bluhare.

        Brandi, like many ‘functioning’ alcoholics can do a facimile of maintaining for a good stretch, but it only takes one really bad night to hit bottom. I imagine being seen in public with your tampon string hanging out and your boobs a floppin’ would be hitting bottom for most women. Then again, spending the night in the drunk tank for a DUI would get a lot of alkies into treatment, but Brandi obliviously keeps tippling on her merry way. Brandi’s not exactly the brightest bulb in the chandelier she swings on, is she?

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      You can say that again! Dean is the winner here and LeAnn is the..Well, we all know what she is ;)

      Glad to see a nice guy have a happy ending.

    • Michele says:

      Agree and if you ACTUALLY READ BRANDI’S (talking to those who put Brandi G down) book you’ll see what a karmic B_TCH Margaret LeAnn is in for, it’s going to be Epic if and when Ediot leaves her.

  3. MrsB says:

    One of those situations that sucked at the time, but looking back on it, he probably realizes she did him a huge favor! Oh and his new wife is way cuter than Leann too.

  4. blue marie says:

    This is the only person I feel sorry for out of that whole mess. She looked happier with him, or maybe just less crazy.

    Anyway, I’m glad he’s moved on and is happy. He’s got nice arms (totally superficial)

    • Bridget says:

      In all the photos of them together she seems much, much happier, and sane. But if you believe the rumors she was cheating on Dean the whole time.

    • emmie_a says:

      I felt sorry for him too — but he looks and sounds happy and sometimes that’s the best revenge (not that he’s looking for revenge – but I am!) And yes, HOT arms!!

      She did look happier with him — almost pretty. I’ve never found her attractive but she looks waay better here than she has ever looked w/Eddie.

      • Regina Lynx says:

        [...] he looks and sounds happy and sometimes that’s the best revenge

        I wholeheartedly agree. I can really relate to Dean, having been put in the exact same situation by my ex-husband. He said she was his ‘true soul mate’.

        After him I found the greatest guy I could ever imagine. Him? Well, the little birdie sang that he and his soul mate can barely stand each other anymore. :)

        Karmalicious, indeed!

  5. Greyson says:

    Sorry, but he pings my gaydar. I remember hearing a blind item long before Eddie came along that Dean supposedly cheated on her with a male employee in their home.

    That said, I still think the way LeAnn handled the divorce was terrible. I think she didn’t marry Dean for passion but they were best friends/partners. She was in the industry since she was young and also married young for stability. When she met Eddie she got hits of dopamine and realized the passion that was missing from her marriage. Awful, but this is a story that has happened many times before.

    • bammer says:

      Yeah I agree. I think she was very young and hadn’t experienced much with men. She acts like an immature insecure sex crazed 16 year old around Eddie.

      • Jezi says:

        She wasn’t a virgin by far when she met Dean. And Leann and her team were the ones who put out those gay rumors to justify her affair.

      • Rita says:

        Tiger Woods was screwing LeAnn as were several studs in the music business before, during, and after her marriage to Dean.

        That’s why Eddie equates having sex with LeAnn with throwing a wrench in a closet.

      • KAI says:

        Leann was in a relationship with a country singer, 8 years her senior, when she was 14 or 15.

        She then embarked on a three-year relationship with Andrew Keegan and was living with him when she was 16. He was apparently unfaithful and they ended their engagement.

        She was young but she was not a naive, inexperienced woman when she married Dean.

      • Bridget says:

        Wasn’t she in a relationship with Andrew Keegan (there’s a blast from the past!) for years prior to Dean? She married young, but it’s not the same as if a ‘regular’ 19 year old got married.

      • ncmagnolia says:

        Wasn’t Andrew Keegan the one she was buying Rolls & Porsches for, summarily wrecking both vehicles? When her dad tried to intervene w/ his daughter’s crazed spending and sleeping around, she sued him. From what I understand, the lawsuit against her father was when Nashville started losing all respect for her. The rest of us were just late to catch up on her insanity due to blogs and internet gossip not being so prevalent back then.

        Also, I believe AK was the guy Piper Perabo “stole” from Nostrils McCrazy, thus launching her SWF’ing of Piper.

      • Bridget says:

        @Ncm – I always wonder why no one talks about the lawsuit against her dad! That was pretty crazy. Like when a phone call was recorded where’s she’s discussing whether she should cry on the stand the next day?

    • OrangeBlohan says:

      I think she put out all the “gay” stuff about him, in attempt to make herself look better for cheating on him. It didn’t work though. He seems to be a really classy guy. Glad he has made a new life and seems happy. He was lucky to get out of that mess.

    • Cindy says:

      Leann was rumored to be a serial cheater in her marriage and had been circulating the gay rumors about Dean while she was orchestrating the tabloid photos and leaked videos of her affair with Eddie so she could finally get him to leave his wife.
      Eddie refused to leave Brandi and went into couples therapy with her and cut off Leann. That’s when she doubled down and the video of them making out in the restaurant and the interview with Scheana came out, so Brandi kicked Eddie out. Leann had already tried to break up Bon Jovi’s marriage after their affair, by contacting his wife, but he dumped her. So with Eddie she was desperate to make it work.
      Leann has been partying around Hollywood since she was a young teen. She was a regular at the Playboy club, out of control drinking and partying. She was hooking up with adult men and moving them into her mansion, paying them to stay with her. It’s part of the reason she and her dad were suing each other, it’s all in the records.

    • Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

      @Rita—
      I hate Leanne Rimes too, but your slut shaming (or laughing about Eddie’s–whatever) is really sh*tty.

    • BackstageBitchy says:

      I met Dean back when he was Mr.Horseface. I immediately took him for gay. But apparently he really isn’t. The new wife is a very well-reputed, successful photographer . We have a mutual friend who vouches that she is a cool, fun, normal girl. Also I really respect the way Dean straight-up acknowledges that his past has opened doors for him. And now he’s finding success as a chef. Go, Dean & Sarah

  6. MonicaQ says:

    I’m going to get it out of the way: DEM ARMS.

    Ok, now that’s over–aww, he seems so nice and non-douchey. Lean doesn’t know what she had. But I bet his new wife does.

    Who keeps in touch with their exs that have cheated on them anyway? Stupid question, interviewer.

  7. Nono says:

    That is one crazily good-looking couple. They must have great sex. Rowr.

  8. paola says:

    He really dodged a bullet. karma will find her sooner or later. maybe she’ll have her period while wearing white trousers.

  9. Elisabeth says:

    dodged a bullet.
    I’ll bet him and his new wife watch the Leann/Eddie/Brandi mess and laugh their asses off

  10. Samigirl says:

    I love his jaw. Never thought he was sexy before but now…..

  11. Celeste says:

    Yep, he’s like a fine wine…
    Sarah is cute. Look at how fit they are! They look like a sweet couple. He deserves it.

  12. Lucy Goosey says:

    He dodged a bullet and I think he realizes that now!

  13. GeeMoney says:

    Are we sure that he’s not gay?

    Either way… he’s better off without LeAnn.

    • Jessiebes says:

      He has only dated and married women, so defiantly not gay.

      Don’t do this. Don’t say people are gay or straight when the opposite is obvious.

      If I walked up to a happily married couple, gay or heterosexual and told them they were wrong about their sexuality, it would be extremely offensive. It would indicate that even though I don’t know this couple at all, I would still think I know better about their sexuality.

      Offensive either way.

    • OceanSoul89 says:

      I guess any guy who doesn’t conform to the manly stereotype must be gay then. My boyfriend must want to be a woman because he has long hair right? He doesn’t like to watch sports and drink beer so he must be homosexual right? My boyfriends dad told him he was a a fag because he didn’t sleep around or act “manly”. Needless to say my boyfriend doesn’t have a relationship with his parents. Years of abuse will do that to you. I’m really sick of people saying that crap. People are people and should act how they want to without fear of not fulfilling gender stereotypes.

      I’ll get off my soapbox now.

      • briargal says:

        Bravo on a great post!! I too am tired of the people who think he “looks” gay. The old adage is true–You can’t judge a book by it’s cover!! BTW–I think LR was the one who hinted that he might be gay to cover her atrocious behavior during her marriage to Dean and her subsequent affair with ugly Eddie!

  14. jessiebes says:

    He seems like a man who gets better looking with age.

  15. matia says:

    He seems like such a great guy who defintely deserved better than old falcor face. I hate when people say he seems gay. Hes a metrosexual hipster and seems shy and sensitive. I’d take that over macho douchebag eddie any day

  16. glaughy says:

    Wow, I watched that whole interview. He seems like a great guy. Love his attitude!

  17. BravoCueen says:

    I’m an arm girl and he’s got great arms! They both look so happy together. Actually, Falcour looks a lot prettier/happier when she was with him. Makes me think of that song lyric, “I don’t want easy, I want crazy. . . . ” Yes, I just quoted a 12 year old’s song. Still….

  18. posh-toes says:

    Although if he’s married to a Brandi she might try to steal him back.

  19. Crabcake says:

    He definitely upgraded with his new wife! They’re both so pretty.

  20. eliza says:

    Is it my imagination or are her eyes actually visible in that picture? Lol.

  21. Susan says:

    Wow, he looks great!!!! Super hot!!!! So glad he got away from “crazy”!

  22. Tilly says:

    He “didn’t see it coming”?! Geez, I saw it coming!! I get a total gay vibe from him.

  23. Maria says:

    i think if you are cheated on but then see how your ex partner behaves like that it eases the pain quite a bit.

  24. Shelley says:

    If you Google photos of them together, she looks so much more relaxed, comfortable and genuinely happy with Dean. None of the tension and weirdness as in the Eddie pics – just a relaxed, trusting body language between LeAnn and Dean. His ethics are right there in his statement that he didn’t suspect her of cheating because he trusted her implicitly. And that tells me he didn’t cheat on her with anyone. I don’t get ‘gaydar’ from him at all – I get very handsome, hard-working, supportive, decent man-dar! Glad he’s doing well and is happy with his new wife.

    • Cindy says:

      When you are a trustworthy person yourself, you can trust others too, it’s just natural.
      But when you are a lying scheming cheater, like Leann, you are going to suspect others (like Eddie) would behave the way you do.
      Dean’s character speaks for itself, he’s an ethical man.

  25. Dana M says:

    I’ve never heard him speak before. I don’t think he is gay (now). He seems like a genuinely kind man. He is sweet and good looking too. What a good catch he is! Leann definitely downgraded. I know she will regret her poor decision someday. Probably around the time she finally catches Eddie cheating. Serial cheaters usually don’t change.

  26. Kiddo says:

    That divorce was the best thing that ever happened to him. He looks much better now, too.

  27. Rita says:

    The reason Dean was suspected of being gay is plain and simply. While Dean was being the epitome of class, LeAnn was try to destroy him with gay rumors so people would feel sorry for her.

    Dean must have refused to acknowledge all the stories of LeAnn screwing anybody and everybody’s husband while married to him.

    btw- The headline is wrong to refer to LeAnn “confessed her affair”. SHE POSTED The Video And PHOTOS ON THE INTERNET FOR GOD’S SAKE!!!!!

    PS-Why does LeAnn hate the word “lame”. Answer, They shoot horses, don’t they?

    PPS-Apparently the date on the divorce whereby Dean must remain silent has come and gone…..tell all, Dean!!!!

  28. Lucy2 says:

    Considering we all now know how crazy she is, he’s clearly better off without her.

  29. Alexis says:

    Aww, he’s handsome and seems like a cool guy. I never noticed or gave him much thought. LeAnn looked A LOT better when she was married to him.

  30. Toot says:

    I never thought Dean was gay. He always seemed like just a nice guy. I always remember their Cribs episode and he was just a sweetheart.

    He’s still a class act. Even when Billy tried to say he dodged a bullet he still wouldn’t say anything bad about LeAnn. I think he’s the only winner out of that old foursome. Brandi is a mess.

    • NerdMomma says:

      I noticed that too- the interviewers were trying to get him to say something snarky, and he just wouldn’t. Classy all around. Even his response to talking about LeAnn after all these years was classy.

      He and his wife are such an adorable couple.

    • Myriam says:

      You and me Toot. I remember the episode and I never got “gay” from him. He just appeared normal, nice, and wasn’t trying too hard to be something he’s not. And I didn’t know there were rumors about his sexuality, even after the scandal broke. It wasn’t until last year when I started frequenting gossip blogs that I even knew the rumors existed and it still didn’t make any sense to me because, by then, he had married a non-celebrity. Why continue the façade when you’re no longer in the spotlight? But then again, I don’t have that fine-tune “gaydar” everybody claims they have. RME

  31. Megan says:

    So to recap

    LeAnne- Famewhore Loser
    Eddie- Famewhore Loser
    Brandi- Famewhore Loser

    Dean- Class act, who works with the FLOTUS and inner city school kids.

    Yep pretty clear who the winner in this situation is and its not the person constantly on magazine covers.

    Seriously he dodged a bullet, good guy. Leanne should feel shame and gratitude he has this much class.

  32. janie says:

    Dean’s a great guy! He was on The Talk for a cooking segment and was so nice. The ladies were all over him. He’s nice, sweet & kind… all the qualities LeAnn doesn’t deserve in a partner. I wish him well!

  33. fabgrrl says:

    Leann looked a lot better when she was with Dean. Relaxed and natural. Cute, even.

  34. Bodhi says:

    He got remarried FOUR MONTHS after getting divorced?? Did their divorce take a long time? That seems like an extremely quick recovery time

  35. Leslie says:

    He seems like a really nice guy. How lucky he is to have gotten rid of LeAnn.

  36. Anoneemouse says:

    Dean – looks like you won this round hands down! Your new wife is WAYYYYY better looking then your last one!

  37. Rita says:

    This morning, LeAnn tweeted a picture of her fire place with the caption that her loving husband built her a fire on this chilly morning….its a gas fire place. Push a button and you get fire.

    She is such a fail.

  38. Emily C. says:

    It’s okay that Leann wasn’t happy with him and wanted to not be married to him. Honestly, having a husband be a FATHER to you sounds extremely icky. Sometimes people marry in the first place for the wrong reasons, or they change, and it just doesn’t work any longer and divorce is the best thing to do. But, of course, Leann cheated. And that is often forgivable. But she cheated with a massive douche, and she can’t shut the hell up about it, and there is one song on her album (“What Have I Done”) that makes me think she wishes she were still with Dean.

    Leann never smiles like that any more. When your jump-off is a douche, for gods’ sake don’t marry him. I think Leann had to convince herself that she cheated because she and Eddie have an Epic Love, when really she just had the hots for him and wanted out of her marriage. Now she’s stuck with him. Until she finds another Epic Love, that is. I do think Leann is going to be the one to leave. Eddie likes being married, especially to a meal ticket; it’s not like it stops charming whatever poor dumbass he can find into bed.

  39. Kate says:

    I watched the interview and while I initially thought gay when he was with Leann, I definitely didn’t get that impression from the interview. I kind of fell in love with him, he was so articulate and smart and refused to bash Leann at all. I would take him over Eddie any day of the week. He actually has a career and ambition. I thought Leann was pretty back then and now she looks like the Joker. I don’t know what she did to her face! What goes around comes around and he has a solid relationship and a great career and Leann’s is circling the toilet bowl.

  40. Lady D says:

    It appears that ‘suzy’ has seriously pissed off Jenn. Now it’s popcorn time.

    • Rita says:

      LeAnn goes after bloggers like a harlot goes after married men…is that redundant? Anyway, she went after Ilana Angel at the Jewish Journal by hacking Ilana’s private information and posting her address and phone number on the internet.

      Jenn’s a tough cookie, so I don’t think she’s going to crumble.

    • Cindy says:

      This is more evidence for the Smiley family’s attorneys of Leann’s continuing pattern of harassment and stalking of someone who dares to disagree with her online. Her vicious fighting and paying her ‘fans’ to fight with and harass somone she disagrees with, then her continued stalking and harassment, culminating in bullying by her law firm and legal threats to frighten the person into silence or compliance. This started years ago when she targeted her dad, her manager, her record company, Brandi, Illeana, the Smileys and now Jenn.
      It’s a continued criminal pattern by Leann. That’s the really interesting story yet to come out.

  41. Dia says:

    She looked much better and more confident when she was with Dean. She’s so insecure with Eddie.

  42. Mandy says:

    He was too good for her. That’s why it didn’t last.

  43. Ginger says:

    Wow! He’s really cute…way cuter than Eddie IMO. He just seems so boy next door (and I mean that in a good way). And his wife is hot, his career is hot…kudos to him! Leann is an idiot, obviously.

  44. Kate says:

    Did you guys see Leann’s meltdown on twitter about the interview? She started sending out all these passive aggressive tweets about him to some “psychic and life coach” and then said the song of the day is True Colors. What a nut job.

  45. Vanessa says:

    It’s so easy for people to pass judgement on Brandi intill you have to deal with a unstable celebrity with million of dollars you has made it there life mission to destroy you they you can pass judgement. It was lot easier for dean to walk away for Leann they had no kids together Dean doesn’t have to deal with crazy Leann all the time unlike Brandi .

  46. mollie says:

    Oh my goodness, his wife is darling! What an upgrade!
    Unbelievable upgrade.
    Good for him! Wonder what Eddie thinks when seeing photos of that pretty woman?
    He certainly got the bad end of the bargain.

  47. bettyrose says:

    He is so cute. Relationships end all the time, but he’s really the big winner here. He got the money, the career, and true love. And did I already say cute?

  48. briargal says:

    After seeing these pics of Dean, I say Eddie who??? Dean is hot and I agree, he certainly married UP from what he had, who is lower than pond scum. And nowadays looks like she has been rode hard and way too often as a young girl and put away wet! Plus he got a lot of her money! hehehe

    Be happy and grateful, Dean!

  49. Walt Jr! says:

    I just want to invite Dean into my inner friend circle and give him a biiiiig hug. Being married to Leann so young, he has to have had a warped sense of what a loving relationship is supposed to be like. Po’ Dean

    Dean has a very genuine smile, not like Eddie’s “Im an actor and I’m being paid for this” smile

  50. Jessiebes says:

    A little of topic but still Leann.

    I’ve been reading what people say about her and to her on twitter. It’s about 20% sucking up to her and the other are either people confronting her about her lies, and some are just mean.

    But it’s twitter and the internet so whatever, that stuff happens, goes with the territory.

    What strikes me though is that even though Leann only responds to the positive tweets, she can only do that by reading a lot of negative tweets too (unless blocked). That must make her craziness even more crazy!

    Or am I jumping to conclusions?

  51. bettyrose says:

    Does Dean’s new wife come home to that cutiepie every night to find him wearing just an apron while whipping up a gourmet meal for them?

  52. Rita says:

    Eddie’s only sanctuary can be found in the ding of the dong of his calamitous clapper….(not that dong nor that clapper). Let me explain.

    LeAnn responds to every bit of minutia on twitter like Pavlov’s Dogs. I imagine the second LeAnn flops down next to Eddie on the couch he reaches for his little dinner bell which sends LeAnn charging out of the room, bounding over the furniture, to get her iphone.

    Peace and quiet permeates the home for about an hour before the bell tolls once more and dinner is served.

    (Ask not for whom the bell tolls but what you can do for your country…..maybe I’m mixing great quotes.)

  53. qtpi says:

    Can’t wait to advise my kid on dating when she gets older. This whole situation can be exhibit A. I’ve always thought Dean was an amazing guy. I know people say he makes their gaydar go off but I didn’t see that in the interview at all. She hit the jackpot with that guy and turned him in for dbag Ediot. LR and EC really do deserve each other.

  54. pnichols says:

    omg he is adorable. totally normal and sweet. good for him. hope they last.

  55. Troy says:

    He dodged a bullet. Makes me think of Kristen Stewart… Rob Pattinson dodged a bullet with that one too. Selfish girls – always thinking you’re being sneaky and clever- for love. Ummm. I would say the same if it was a man doing the same. Sometimes you need things like this to show you what kind of person you’re dealing with… snake in the grass.

  56. tarheel tina says:

    Leann downgraded so bad. Dean got away from all the drama/crazy and is successful and admired in his own right. She’s on twitter telling him to get over it but obviously with the twitter wars, spitfire subject matter, and tv show including a brandi character leann is FAR from over anything

    • Christin says:

      I have not seen the tweets, but I don’t know what complaint there could be. He handled the questions well. He made his points in a factual, genuine, classy way.

      He seems level headed, and if his wife is of a similar disposition, then he’s probably quite content. I didn’t detect any pining for the past in his demeanor or tone. Maybe that is what is so frustrating to the ex! He seems happy with his current life, and he looks great.

  57. betty says:

    Dean got away from Leann and didn’t have to deal with all the craziness she brought into Brandi life. If Brandi didn’t have the kids she could have also. Plus Dean had 10 mil to help him forget. Brandi coped better then I would have because I would not have put up with all the BS Leann and Eddie brought into her life after they divorced. Leann left a MAN for a TOYBOY!

  58. Taska says:

    I suppose this seems silly to bring up, but lately I’ve had this country song from the early 90′s stuck in my head, “I’m Holding My Own” by Lee Roy Parnell. Funny thing is, it really kind of fits with this story.

    “Well, thank you I’m holding my own
    Don’t you worry ’bout me no more
    It hurt me when you left me alone
    But there’s two sides to every door
    And the life you left behind has led
    To lives I’d have never known
    So thank you I’m holding my own”

    • IzzyB says:

      Love that song! Just had a break-up and it’s the song I love to listen to.

      Being friends with all my exes (apart from one, serious issues there), I like to think I can handle a break-up well.

      Dean certainly has. Props to him, can’t have been easy.

  59. Alma says:

    What he says about their marriage is very telling! He says that it was hard being everything for her. He couldn’t just be himself. And i do see that! Lean expects the world to revolve around her. sheesh! He’s not independent and free! He got saved. Eddy is going to be so happy when that relationship ends! The tables have turned.. mua ha ha!

    • Relli says:

      Those are some VERY good points! Amongst many things she has always struck me as an emotional vampire.

    • Christin says:

      Sometimes a relationship is more draining than one realizes until you get away from it. Dean once commented that he probably helped her in more ways than she realized.

      I’m paraphrasing, but his comments then and now suggest he was an emotional support (maybe to a higher degree than most relationships require) and she would likely miss having that. She had drama and issues before that marriage (per the dad lawsuit, etc.) and certainly after it.

  60. Sway says:

    I now understand why Brandi said some time ago (I think it was 2010) that she actually envied Dean, because he didn’t have kids with Leann and he got to get away from her and go on with his life without having to deal with her and Ediot. I really believe most of Brandi’s problems stem from her pain over Leann’s behavior with her kids and the demonstrations she constantly puts out for the world to see. Brandi was and is hurting most of all not about losing Eddie, but about losing her children 50% of the time and having to deal with crazy We We pretending to be their mother (and SWF-ing Brandi at the same time). Dean really dodged a bullet there and you can see it clear as day. Just comparing Brandi and Dean in present day says everything. In two words… poor Brandi.

  61. Baylor says:

    Anyone else notice the small DB reference in the interview?

    When they asked him about the song he has on her latest album, he mentioned a “mutual friend” told him it was going to be on the album. Who else could that “mutual friend” be but DB?

    Oh Dean, Dean, Dean …
    I think he is as blind about DB as he was about LR.

    Dean you know that if the tables were reversed (concerning who cheated on who) DB would no longer be your “friend” right?!

    Also, Dean has said that DB was there for him during the darkest time in his life (which was the scandal). How could he have done that Dean, if he was also encouraging LeAnn with her relationship with Eddie, and befriending Eddie, and making excuses for LeAnn’s behavior in the press?!

    I have a really hard believing DB knew nothing about the affair when it was taking place. He probably knew/knows alot about that situation that he never told Dean/kept from him.

    I think Dean is in for a VERY rude awaking regarding DB sometime in the future.

  62. Rita says:

    LeAnn posted a picture of a ring she got in support of National Gay Coming Out Day…..whatever the hell that is.

    Anyway, apparently LeAnn doesn’t read the comment section under her instagrams because a guy commented:

    “Our movement and community does not need the support of a dishonest bitch like you”

    I’m really starting to like that community. Anyway, take a look for yourself unless LeAnn read my comment before you and deleted his comment.

  63. Rita says:

    I just read this story on the Daily Mail where they have Eddie and LeAnn talking to Kris Jenner (Kardashian) a couple of years ago. It is the most awkward meeting I’ve ever seen and Eddie has his left hand doubled up in a nervous fist like he’s about to punch Kris. Funny as hell.

  64. Holden says:

    Having been through something similar with my ex, I really like his sentiment about the assumptions we make in relationships. It’s funny because even having been through that, I have never doubted the person I’m with now for a second.

  65. someone says:

    Soooo…if Leann divorces Eddie that leaves Eddie broke and living in an van down by the river. Eddie no longer has a career because of the bad things people say about him so the amount of money he’d bring in is negligible. Now the kids are spending 50% of their time in a hovel with a dad who can’t pay his child support and doesn’t have Leann to pay for the extras. Brandi better start making her name outside of Leann because when Leann and Eddie divorce her current claim to fame becomes meaningless. She’ll no longer be the ex wife of the husband of Leann Rimes. If Leann divorces Eddie and takes a hiatus for 5 years and then comes back she’ll be the best off out of all of them. I wish for her sake she would – I think anyone would go crazy in the constant negativity that surrounds anyone in that hellish bermuda triangle.

    • briargal says:

      I don’t think LR will divorce EC. She would never admit that she and the marriage are failures. Especially when she is always doing the clingy pap pics thing and tweeting about how happy, happy, happy they are and trying so hard to make people think they are. And as to your thinking if she went on hiatus for 5 years, she could come back and be successful again–no way. There has been too much exposed by her, her twitter and blogs that make her a vicious, vile, disgusting liar. She sure ruined her career, and all for lust. She threw away a really good guy for a loser. She has NO ONE to blame but herself. Though I’m sure she will always blame Brandi! LR never takes responsibility for anything that goes wrong in her life. Pathetic loser and has-been!

    • Lady D says:

      If this trick does divorce him, she should hook up with balloon boy’s dad. Think of the fun this deluded couple could have.

  66. kellyinseattle says:

    Dean has class…he could’ve written a tell-all….same with Heidi Bivens…I thought that showed class that they took the high-road….

  67. Jennifer12 says:

    Is gay like a toupee, something you can spot? Come on. He just isn’t your typical guy, even though he’s really muscular. He’s a sweet, sensitive, metrosexual, really muscular guy. Dean seems like a great guy, one that Leann treated like dirt, but he has the last laugh with a great life. Brandi can’t escape as easily- she has to deal with Leann stalking and harassing her on the daily, and the situation with her kids must be triply stressful. When you can just walk away from a bad relationship, it’s a lot easier than when there are kids involved.

  68. Jayna says:

    Wow, Dean is hot in that video and a great guy to boot. I have a little crush on him now. He’s very articulate. Cook for me, Dean.

    How sad, LeAnn was really pretty in that photo. Loving obssessively Eddie has ruined her looks and brought out the neurotic in her.

  69. Snowpea says:

    Wow this gaggle of nutjobs is the gift that keeps on giving! As is my want, I’m gonna give you my new slant on things ;)

    Number One: That Dean boy sure is one excellent dude. I am blown away by how much we all misjudged him! Gay schmay. He is intelligent, kind, considered and honourable and that chicky of his is one lucky woman.

    Number Two: Leann is a f*cking idiot for breaking up with him for that poor excuse for a man, Eddie Cibrian. I wonder if she ever looks back with regret and remorse at her actions with regard to Dean? He is SUCH a catch and she threw it all away? The thing is, I do understand because I spent a large part of my life with an Eddie; we had two kids together and he was always sleeping with other women, drinking, doing cocaine and gambling and by the time we broke up, I was a shell of a human being.

    LeAnn has been dickmatised by a douche of the highest order and it is a very miserable, dark place to be in. I know. It took me five years to recover from that relationship and only because HE left ME! Le Ann should get down on her knees and pray Ed leaves her because only then she will have a decent shot at getting her life back in order and perhaps even a career rejuvenation. Stranger things have happened. Robert Downey Jr anyone?

    Number Three: Why do we have to keep on arguing whether or not BG is as bad as LR and EC? I think it is well established now that she is trashy and a little bit low rent BUT she is having to deal with the f*ckery those morons deal out on a daily basis and for that, I cut her some slack.

    Number Four: LR is possibly THE sickest, nastiest, most entitled, narcissistic, most malicious human being the world has ever seen. Her sense of entitlement knows no bounds. I shudder to think what she is like behind closed doors if we can see the madness and lunacy that she displays in the public arena. Seriously, I bet she is outta control and TERRIFYING to be around. Those poor children :(

    Well that is all really. Have a good day y’all :)

  70. Zooyork says:

    I love Dean and always have!

  71. Zooyork says:

    Have always been curious about what dean thought regarding leann picking her nose at the gas station while he was inside paying for the gas!

  72. Margie says:

    The ‘Gay Thing’ REALLY needs to be addressed. Don’t you think if Dean was gay he would TOTALLY own it? I do. I think he’d be Out N Loud N Proud as could be! He doesn’t strike me as a Shrinking Violet. One thing I have found to be true with gay men in the closet (OK, I’ve only known three), they become miserable eventually. IF he was gay and hiding it for this long, I don’t think he would look or act like that ^^^^^^^^^!!! The man is clearly happy, happy, happy.
    I agree, he lost 150lbs. (go big or go home) of C R A Z Y! I’d be slap happy, too!

  73. Jane says:

    Thank God he was able to get away from her. Notice that he said that his needs needed to be met. It seems that Dean was her servant and had to live and breath “her” throughout the entire marriage. There seemed to be no equality there, so Leann didn’t take her marriage vows seriously. He is so better off without her. The b*** still cannot let him have any happiness with those stupid and infantile tweets about his interview.

    • apsutter says:

      Completely agree…love how he acknowledges that his current marriage is a union of equals who each have their own existences outside of each other which allows them to thrive as a couple and as individuals. I can only imagine how free he felt when he fell in love with his wife and realized that he could finally do his own thing and be loved for being himself.

  74. apsutter says:

    Man, this guy is such a class act. And he has such a good attitude about everything. I love his feelings about how he doesn’t care if the affair gets him in the door too. You have to have an attitude like when bad things happen to you so you can cope and move on to something better. Leann did a major, MAJOR downgrade…what a grade A dumb*ss that woman is

    • Jane says:

      Spot on. When you look at things in perspective, Leann and Eddie’s affair gave Dean and Brandi a new start in life and a better career/lifestyle. Both of them-their success is climbing while Leann an Eddie’s are taking a nose dive to the point of no return. Karma…sweet karma! You’ll have to forgive me as drinking a huge glass of Riesling got me all goofy, but I could imagine their wedding vows:

      Do you douchebag take this dumb a$$ to be your ball and chain for the next few years, to have and to hold until this day forward till rehab or divorce do you depart?

  75. Jayna says:

    The clip of him actually cooking with the co-hosts after the interview is here. He is a natural on TV. I hope his career takes off big time on TV.

    http://watch.accesshollywood.com/video/dean-sheremets-healthy-crowd-pleasing-recipes/2735133412001

  76. Christin says:

    Didn’t they have a big seven year itch themed party covered by People just weeks before the whole restaurant pictures debacle that outed the affair? I can see why he would be so blindsided and truly the last to know. Wife has a big formal shindig in California just before the 7th anniversary, if I recall correctly, and the magazine does a big photo spread on their happy union. That timeline and quotes about having children make me doubt anything that currently tries to portray a happy union or future family with her new man.

  77. Michele says:

    He traded up big time, she’s very pretty!

  78. Jayna says:

  79. Leslie says:

    LeAnn used to be half-way decent looking. In those pap pix from yesterday’s (Oct 12) soccer game, she looks godawful. Plus she’s leaning all her weight on that broken/fractures/sprained hand. Maybe Ediot is the one who healed her hand since he “built a fire” in a gas/electric fireplace. He must have magical skills we are unaware of.

  80. Jane says:

    @briagal-So true. It’ll be thus because we don’t know her “truth” and the terrible sacrifices she made in her life. (I can hear the violins playing in the background). She lost her childhood and she was forced to become America’s Sweetheart so young. Her lawn chair tours took so much out of her, her world tour was devastating on her delicate body, the recent illness left her in such a delicate state, and of course being the most magnificent Bonus Mom on the planet sapped the life out of her no doubt. She has constantly had to defend herself to Brandi’s supporters and the evil that lies within them..yadda, yadda, yadda…
    Tune in tomorrow for another saga in Leann’s Soap Opera.

  81. Cirque28 says:

    The years have been very good to Dean. The baby face he had in his 20′s is maturing soooo well in his 30′s. Oh, and he seems to be thriving on the inside, as well. ;)

  82. Sam H x says:

    He’s really grown into his looks hasn’t he? He looks rather dishy…Time has been good to Dean…His wife Sarah is beautiful! Had a peek on his Instagram and Twitter – He sounds like a man who is head over heels in love with his lady…I do love a man who can cook though…Dean and Brandi seem friendly aswell! I hope he continues to succeed and thrive in everything he does…He’s a good guy, he deserves it!! xx
