Jennifer Love Hewitt was cheated on for 1 1/2 years out of 2 year relationship

So I’m kind of bored sitting around wondering what else to report on today and am watching some taped episodes of The View. (I’ve already watched all the good shows, don’t judge me! It’s for work.) Elisabeth Hasselbeck was on vacation yesterday and Jennifer Love Hewitt was the guest host. It was a particularly tolerable episode and one that didn’t require fast forwarding while Hasselbeck got indignant over something or other. Anyway the ladies were talking about cheating men in light of the Jesse James interview. Sheri said that she checked her now ex-husband’s Blackberry and e-mail once she found out he was fooling around and found plenty of evidence. Hewitt chimed in and said “I was cheated on, and I did check. And I’m really happy I did and I’d do it again.”

She laughed and explained “I knew in my gut that something was going on… you have to trust [that instinct]… I checked and I found that out of the almost two year relationship I was in for a year and a half he’d been having relationships with not just one woman but a few. And it was really heartbreaking to me, but it saved me staying another year in that relationship.”

When Joy asked Jennifer what signs she saw that lead her to check up on the guy, she said “I just knew his behavior was different. He was caring more about his appearance… which is a big sign. They start to work out more and they’re like ‘no I just want to get in shape.’ ‘For who? Because you haven’t been in shape our whole relationship.'”

This isn’t the first time Hewitt revealed that she was cheated on. In April she told Ryan Seacrest on his show that she was cheated on “a lot” and that “Once I found out on television and that was awesome. And then another time I found them together.” She then said she had a feeling about a different boyfriend, probably the guy she talked about on The View, and found “phone stuff” to confirm it.

Who is this guy that cheated? I’m guessing it’s her boyfriend before Jamie Kennedy, Irish actor Ross McCall. She was with McCall for just about two years and they broke up in January, 2009. There were rumors at the time that McCall was cheating on her. Good for her for trusting her feelings and checking up on him. I love how she gives us enough clues to figure out who she’s talking about without naming names. It must have been a relief to figure out what was going on and to get out of the relationship. I wonder if she celebrated by having her mons bedazzled with something empowering like “Never Again” with little curlicues around it.

    Aw, I like her.
    I’m holding out hope that she will find a good guy.

  2. NayNay says:

    I think there is something very needy and desperate about her. Men do not like needy or desperate women. I’m glad that she is at least staying positive.

  3. Lady Nightshade says:

    Didn’t she date Carson Daily during his whole MTV phase? I bet it was him

  4. Leek says:

    That is sad. I do feel bad for anyone that happens to.

    I knew a woman whose son was a grip in LA and he said JLH was one of the nicest actresses he had encountered.

    I always thought she seemed desperate, too, but maybe as fans we are so jaded that nice comes across as pathetic. That’s too bad.

  5. eggy weggs says:

    Yes, needy and desperate. She has nothing going on now that “The Boob Whisperer” is canceled. She has always looked to me like she had awful plastic surgery years ago and then her face grew around it, like tree bark around a trunk wound.

  6. Jackson says:

    She does seem like a genuinely nice person. Very real. And is it wrong that I love that Spanx dress she is wearing? She is really rocking that thing.

  7. kelbear says:

    Hopefully she just lets love find her and doesn’t try to hard and go looking for it. I really like her though and feel like a cheeseball saying the movie she was in ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’ is a favorite of mine.

  8. anon says:


    I love Can’t Hardly Wait too. It’s like a sickness.

  9. Me says:

    She seems really nice and she looks great in that dress! I appreciate her honesty.

  10. oxa says:

    She seems lonely,desperate, needy and in love with love, not a good combination.
    I think you have to be happy ALONE before you find a partner, then you are less likely to settle for crap.

  11. ams1 says:

    OMG haha i don’t think its spanx…i think its herve leger & i love it!

  12. DrM says:

    Oh for Pete’s sake…judge much? Can any of us say that at some point in their lives we haven’t been…what’s the phrase y’all keep using? “Needy and Desperate”? That would just about sum me up after my ex f*****off with a v.g. friend of mine (literally) up and out of our 16 year marriage…you get over it but it took me the better part of five years and a hell of a lot of really bad choices in men to figure it out. And yes I’ve seen people be hellishly needy and desperate IN a marriage/relationship as well…

    Lay off the girl…she seems to talk a lot less garbage than some…

  13. Vee says:

    She’s a doll!

  14. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    (To the Can’t Hardly Wait fans)

    Scott Baio.

  15. RobN says:

    She and Halle need to sit down and figure out why the hot chicks can’t manage to make a relationship work. You can’t just keep blaming it on the guys when it happens over and over again.

  16. GatsbyGal says:

    I think she must be a nice person…but there must also being something wrong about her that she keeps finding these dudes who cheat on her. I think she must be desperate enough to take any old idiot that comes along.

  17. Jackson says:

    @ams1 – you are correct. (I didn’t really think it was from Spanx!) Unfortunately at $4000 it’s not coming home with me. Hey, JLH, hook me up with that dress when you’re done wearing it, k? Thx.

  18. a says:

    good for her!

  19. LondonLady says:

    She looks amazing in that dress. Good work in the gym woman!

  20. Gabby says:

    “She and Halle need to sit down and figure out why the hot chicks can’t manage to make a relationship work. You can’t just keep blaming it on the guys when it happens over and over again.”

    You can when two of your exes were incredible douchebags – one a serial cheater/slut and another a heinous abuser – as was the case with Halle Berry. And yes, I know we like to hate on pretty women, as if they’re at fault somehow just by being sexually desirable; however, women are so objectified as it is in our society, that one heightened challenge pretty women face is finding a man who cares more about their personality than their appearance – someone who would care about them if they couldn’t be used as a sex object. It’s a cliche to say that, but it’s completely true. Everyone knows at least a couple hot friends of theirs who keep ending up with total douchebags, and it’s hard for them to tell when a man pampers them and sweet talks them so skillfully at the beginning of the courtship…then they try to ensnare the girls in relationships with drastic power imbalances where the women becomes heavily emotionally dependent on the man.

    And lots of attractive men hop from woman to woman, men who haven’t been cheated on or horribly abused, but are just finicky and noncommittal, but you don’t seem concerned with blaming them.

  21. Hautie says:

    I am happy to see her with bangs and a sassy ponytail.

    There are some people are meant for bangs. (me being one of them) And she now looks 22 again.

    Instead of 45 when she kept on wearing nothing but a big center part.

    I never really thought JLH was desperate as much as she is looking for a decent guy to date in the land of Mega Douches.

    Which lets be honest, practically every famous – semi famous – actress has had trouble finding a decent guy in LA.

  22. Maritza says:

    She is cute, I’m sure she’ll find another guy soon, if she doesn’t have one already.

  23. original kate says:

    she looks way better with the bangs.

  24. johnsvo says:

    She better get into Playboy before her rear end get big again.

  25. Sonja says:

    She’s a sweetheart. I hope she finds a guy who can appreciate her. Her smile lights up her face. You can’t fake that kind of radiance. It comes from the inside.

  26. lucy2 says:

    Sucks she was cheated on like that, can’t say I blame them for checking if they were starting to suspect.
    I think she seems like a nice enough girl, but I do have to agree that I get a sense of desperation/neediness from her, as if nothing else matters besides finding a boyfriend. Though I don’t think she’s particularly talented, she has made a pretty good life for herself – maybe she should just be happy and confident in that for a little while instead of focusing so much on finding Mr. Right (Now).

  27. jan says:

    She looks great. Great figure. Great dress – how many people could rock a dress like that? Great bangs. And I have heard her and she sounds like a good person inside as well.

    And I’m with the poster above – – nice equals neediness. That’s so sad. And: I have read so many reports that Rene Zellwinger is a really good person and most people just want to dis her because they think she’s just not good enough.

    All that tells me a lot about the world in general. And you know what? It doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is what God believes about a person.

  28. d says:

    Um, nice could also equal naive, right? Maybe she just doesn’t have good judgement and I can’t judge her for that. I think she’s a slightly kooky but genuinely nice person who, as someone said, is looking in the wrong places for love. I think she should forget about that for a while and focus on her career, just have fun for a while, and not worry about relationships.

  29. canadianchick says:

    @CB that was a hilarious blog, I saw the View today a.k.a. the Whoopi-dominates-all-converation-while-Baba-is-away show. JLH did well when Whoopster let her get a word in edgewise. I was mesmerized by JLH’s lips-must’ve been plumped up like clown lips.

  30. Laura says:

    i don’t hate her, i don’t like her. calling someone desperate seems too judgmental for me, she just has aspirations, albeit no talent, but who does these day? Although, She cheated too…on carson. whatevs.

    I do envy her her game though – it must be nice to get seemingly (pre-douchey john) nice guys, and than move on to the next, just cause, why not? – wish i had those skills – play on playa.

  31. Lia says:

    She seems nice, she looks great, and we aren’t reading about any “Lindsay Lohan” -type escapades involving her. She’s a success. Good luck to her.

  32. Sharonkings says:

    I love JLH! I dont understand why some bloggers rag on her (Perez!) I wish her the best of luck in love, and her career.

  33. Rosina says:

    Grandma always told me with men you got to treat them mean to keep them keen. And I can say that I’ve found this to be sadly true.

    So at the end of the day that is her problem, she is too nice when she falls in love. Immediately doing everything to take care of her loved ones, compromising on all her own desires and they end up treating her like shit.

    For most people, they go through this once and it’s never again. She on the other hand keeps repeating the cycle, its long past the time she looked out for no one and put herself first.

  34. Larissa says:

    Thing is …there is no formula to be “cheated on”, no matter if you are a insecure, needy, desperate, you name it, or a strong, independent, whatever woman.
    Men will cheat on you! Ok, wait,not all men, but the vast majority! As soon as they feel their needs are not being completely fufilled ( and no, they won´t talk it over )and they get the chance they will cheat! They are selfish and delusional enough to believe that as long as they are with you, that won´t hurt you, especially if you don´t know about it.

  35. Kelly says:

    Its the 6 months of faithfulness that’s blowing MY little mind.

  36. Kitten says:

    @Gabby-Well said! 🙂

  37. Stephie says:

    She looks great and seems nice. Best of luck on the next one.

  38. denise says:

    This girl has gone through all the men in Hollywood, yet she is never called a hoe.

  39. brenda says:

    @ Jackson. Those Herve Ledger bandage dresses make any woman with a half-decent body look incredible. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Rent the Runway, but it’s a company that lets you rent the dresses for a fraction of the cost so for those of us who can’t afford a $2000 dress, we can rent it for one night.

  40. Kim says:

    She stayed in the relationship for a year AFTER she knew he was cheating on her w/ multiple other women???? Has she no shame or self esteem? What a loser! She gives women a bad name. Yes men who cheat are scum but she was well aware he was cheating and chose to stay so she is no victim in any way shape or form – shes just pathetic!

  41. Kim says:

    I agree with the posts saying if you hook up with a bad man once shame on you but multiple times over and over then there is a pattern and these women are subconsciously picking bad men and cant not blame the men entirely. Maybe they truly have fear of committment so they pick guys they know arent in relationship for long haul> who knows but when it happens mutl times it not just oh prro Sarah, Halle etc just cant find a good man.

  42. Chico says:

    Hey, I have an idea. WHY doesn’t she date outside of Hollywood? I know there’s a million nice guys who would be happy to have this girl on her arm. Instead, she dates actor-media types–the kind of guys who can pick up any girl just because they’re famous.

    I think the desperation thing comes from her being an actress. All actors are needy and desperate to be noticed. It’s a part of the job description, I believe.

    Oh well, she still seems to be a nice person who hasn’t completely lost her head and entered the land of delusional narcissism, like La Lohan.

  43. Slymm27 says:

    Yeah, there is no formula for being cheated on. Men just cheat, doesn’t matter if you are Condo Rice or Halle Berry. They cheat! Sad but true.

  44. gg says:

    I hope those bangs are clipons and she can toss them.
