LeAnn Rimes’ lawyer sent a threatening letter to Dean Sheremet, of course

Dean Sheremet has had a nice life post-LeAnn Rimes. When they divorced, he got a tidy settlement in return for signing a nondisclosure agreement, and he moved to New York. He enrolled in and graduated from a cooking school. He found love and got remarried. And now he’s releasing a cook book called Eat Your Heart Out, which is already out. Apparently, Dean dared to mention LeAnn’s name a few times in the book. So now LeAnn’s lawyers are threatening to sue him.

In Touch magazine has exclusively obtained the legal letter LeAnn Rimes’ camp sent her now ex-husband Dean Sheremet when they learned he had written about their failed marriage in his new cookbook, Eat Your Heart Out.

In an exclusive interview Dean Sheremet, who split with the singer seven years ago after she started an affair with now-husband Eddie Cibrian, reveals he received the legal warning approximately a week before his cookbook’s Feb. 8 debut.

“The lawyers wanted to know what details I included about LeAnn,” Dean tells In Touch. “I just don’t get it. She already killed my happiness the first time around. [It’s like], ‘Move on already, LeAnn. I’ve moved on!’ ”

Dean and LeAnn are both bound by a settlement agreement they signed when they split.

“Neither is allowed to disclose ‘confidential information’ about the marriage that hasn’t previously been made public — including in a book,” a source familiar with the settlement tells In Touch. “If either of them breaches these terms, legal options can be pursued.”

“I worked very hard on this book and I’m proud of it,” says Dean, who married photographer Sarah Silver in 2011. “I’m on people’s radar because of my past with her. I can’t erase my past; I referred to it and was very respectful. I’m not the one who cheated.”

[From In Touch Weekly]

In Touch provided a copy of the letter sent to Dean by LeAnn’s lawyer, which Dean must have given to In Touch. I would assume that the NDA goes both ways, and considering LeAnn has talked about Dean and their marriage in the past, certainly he would have grounds to sue her as well? And the reference to the interview Dean did last year – we covered that, and that interview was much more damaging to LeAnn than some stories in a cookbook. CB and I were trying to figure out LeAnn’s angle on this, I think I may have figured it out: she wants a cut of Dean’s book sales, right?

Here’s the copy of the lawyer’s letter, plus some photos of LeAnn going to yoga a few days ago.

    A Day ends in Y, LeAnn sic’s Lawyers on someone, and the world keeps turning

    • Erinn says:

      I hope her lawyer is paid well. I’d need something to make up having to deal with her shenanigans.

      • RhoSue says:

        Can she afford a lawyer?

      • funcakes says:

        Well a blogger she’s at war with has a stack of C & D letters. Can you imagine how much each one costs for her lawyer to type it up? $200,$300?

      • starfish says:

        Look at that letter really good. It’s child like written. It looks like it’s written for a teenager, not a almost 40 year old woman. If this guy is for real, he needs a new profession. imo

      • paleokifaru says:

        This is what baffles me. Lawyers are expensive! And she’s using hers a lot. Is a family member or family friend who is just hoping something will pay out at some point to give them a cut? My husband’s ex has a situation like that and I think by now, nine years later, she’s finally worn that agreement out because they couldn’t win anything, even against my husband representing himself. So when is the money or favor well going to dry up?

      • AntiSocialButterfly says:


        Of course she can… if she uses the glut of unsold, crappy Christmas cd you know she has stuffed into a garage.

    • Bridget says:

      She really knows how to handle conflict with dignity.

    • lainey says:

      Oh Dean, you’re in good company, any woman who would sue a special eds teacher over a phone call that Leman made to the teacher is just plain nutso.going to buy your book and all good luck and success

      • starfish says:

        I heard Eddie is building Leann a new sandbox for Valentines Day and gifting her a shovel to keep digging her own hole bigger.

      • funcakes says:

        The poor Smileys. Even she knew her ship was sinking because she refused to participate in deposition. And if you miss deposition they charge you.
        I love how even legal experts advised LeAnn not to pursue the case.
        Then a fan leaked the teachers personal info including info about the children which could have been dangerous. He had to go to court over it.

  2. stinky says:

    it would have been pretty cool if he didn’t name her in any manner tho. that would have been best. she’d be scouring the book waiting for innuendo etc and there’d be NONE.

    • Christin says:

      That would have been the best approach.

      Of course, stuff like this letter will just drum up publicity, like she did when Brandi’s first book was released.

    • Wren says:

      I agree, he should have just left her out entirely. That would have been the best (or the worst). Imagine her reading the book, even though it’s a cookbook, by her ex husband and there’s no mention of her in there at all, like she didn’t exist in his life. Now that would be truly galling.

      However, it’s up to him how he wants to deal with his life and experiences. As long as he abides by the legal agreements he owes her nothing. The marriage was his too and a significant period in his life. I’m not going to begrudge him thoughts and feelings about it. Goodness knows she’s been dragging him publicly for years.

    • Dagny says:

      I don’t actually understand why he would want to include her in the marketing of his cookbook. It’s not helping to establish his personal brand. Any guesses?

      • tweetersagainstcheaters says:

        It ties in with the name of the book

      • starfish says:

        Figure it out—Eating your Heart Out was his honest opinion of Leann. She is scum. Leann thinks she can controls others because she says so. Not going to work anymore. He busted her wide open for the child she really is.

    • Christin says:

      Maybe he mentioned her just to establish the timeline of what led him to a culinary career. He went to culinary school after the divorce.

      Mentioned this downthread, but an excerpt (possibly the book forward) mentioned his grandmother and barely mentioned the marriage. It was tied to how he came to enjoy cooking and ended up making it a career after his divorce.

      • funcakes says:

        Exactly. This is not new information that LeAnn had a brief reference in the book. It was already on line and the only one throwing a fit about it was her inner circle. Thank goodness they overreacted because it probably would have been nothing to it.
        Dean should send them all a big bouquet to thank them for the free publicity.

    • lucy2 says:

      That definitely would have driven her crazy!

      I think this all depends on what he said. If he just mentions in her regards to the timeline, or stuff like “after getting divorced, I decided to try ____” then she shouldn’t be complaining. I can’t picture him dropping serious dirt in a cookbook.

    • Sabrine says:

      I don’t blame LeAnn at all. Sheremet was well paid to keep details of their marriage private and he has violated their agreement. What good was it if it’s been negated? I hope she sues his pants off. A deal is a deal and should not be trivialized.

      • claire says:

        He talks about his own life. He acknowledges he was married and divorced. If that’s breaking the agreement, then Leann has broken it hundreds of times over.

      • AmyB says:

        LeAnn has spilled more details about her affair/divorce/marriage than Eddie, Dean and Brandi COMBINED! PLEASE lol!! For years, the only crap LeAnn talked about was the “affair” and her “unfulfilling marriage.” I guess she was trying to garner sympathy but instead, she should have just shut up. Of all four of them (LeAnn, Eddie, Brandi and Dean) Dean is the only one that comes across honest, decent and sympathetic. Haven’t read Dean’s cookbook but apparently his introduction talks about his journey towards being a chef (during the LeAnn affair and divorce). WTF is wrong with that? It’s detailing how he became a chef and channeled his energy into being a chef, being healthy, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. LeAnn has talked about her illicit affair so many times in interviews, it’s obnoxious. Like talk about another album, talk about touring…….please talk about something ELSE! #teamdean

      • Bridget says:

        Have you read a cookbook recently? It’s not exactly the medium for Confessionals. Keeping details private doesn’t mean that the other person is no longer allowed to even breathe the person’s name.

      • Jess says:

        Lol, hey LeAnn or Kiki!!

      • AmyB says:

        @Jess I agree! That post has to be by some mindless LeAnn supporter. It’s hard for me to imagine LeAnn herself comes on sites likes this and posts things, but you cannot apply logic to crazy, am I right???

      • Tate says:

        Lol, LeAnn has been going on and on about buying Ed for years. Now Dean is wrong for talking about his journey?? STHU LeAnnn and just go enjoy your rapidly aging, perpetually unemployed prize pig.

      • funcakes says:

        Dean should have taken all the interviews were LeAnn
        mentions him put it in a binder,with the legal letter on the first page, and mail it back to her lawyer.

  3. Pinky says:


    LeAnn is probably trying to scoop him on some recipes and claim she came up with them herself, before Dean. And she wants a FREE copy because she’s cheap, not realizing it costs more to get her lawyer to demand one than to plunk down the coins herself at Amazon. She probably doesn’t want to contribute to him getting any royalties because she’s a spiteful, hateful nincompoop.

    Or she’s just afraid he’ll talk about all her other affairs. I think Dean should break the confidentiality and tell all if she doesn’t knock it off. The tabloids will pay him far more than LeAnn could rightfully sue out of him. She is, as always, an idiot.


  4. Christin says:

    Another day, another legal letter. Sounds like she wants to control his media interview content. What could he say that would damage her at this point?

    I think his sister was scuffling a little online with some of L’s ‘friends’. That may be her concern, since Dean has always seemed tactful and reserved.

    • Nana says:

      Actually LR’s friends went after Candice 1st and she bit back, I would have done the same. NOT once did LR tell her paid friends/fans to back off and stop, they do her dirty work. They went hard on Brandi years ago, it was disgusting, Brandi did nothing to LR.

      • funcakes says:

        Again something backfired in LeAnn s face. Someone in the inner circle decided to go after Ilana Angel,Brandi,Dean and his sister. And boy did it not go well. It only caused unwanted publicity which caused LeAnn to go underground. She barley says anything on her social media. She only stick to her chalk talk. But we all know that with LeAnn everyday is the calm before the storm.

      • starfish says:

        Ilana was right about all of them, she had many letters from Leann’s lawyer. After seeing the letter that Dean received, gawd, I’m ROTF. Leann has to resort to a has been lawyer too. I would be embarrassed to send that letter for any client of mine.

  5. kri says:

    Perhaps she should take her face out of Eddie’s ass and go make some money in the studio. Or is she not doing that singing thing anymore..

  6. aims says:

    Dean has been nothing short is a saint during this whole situation. He’s kept his mouth shut and was doing his thing. If I’m not mistaken, Leann has said a lot of ugly and slander towards Dean. He hasn’t engaged in the drama between Brandi and Leann. So as far as I’m concerned, this is just another lame attempt on Leann’s part to be in the news. She’s SO sue crazy and it seems like an abuse of the judicial system.

    • Chicagogurl says:

      I follow him because I love his cooking and abs and he’s an awesome spirit. He’s congenial, friendly and so up-beat. I think he’s been more than gracious. Unless he’s out there talking about your family, your medical background or sexual preferences (all things which are WAY out of character for him), let it go! Sing it with me Leann — LET IT GO!

  7. Green Is Good says:

    There’s nothing Dean could reveal that’s any worse than the stuff that was covered by every gossop site, the stuff Leann has said herself, and stuff Brandi Granville has revealed in her own book.

    Meanne, (not a typo) should leave Dean alone. She dumped him. It’s seems she’s pissed her Ex is living happily ever after.

  8. Angelica says:

    Just another way to show how unhappy she is in her life. Happy people don’t hear about an ex’s new book and throw a legal fit when their name is mentioned. Especially if she’s just mentioned a few throwaway times. Even if her role is is pivotal in the book, who cares? You know what happened when my ex mentioned me? I said “meh”. I don’t care, and I don’t have to care, that’s the beauty of splits and divorces, all of the sudden you’re involvement with someone is cut off and you can go about your life worrying about things you DO care about. Obviously Leann cares about slight sh*t like this, though, and it just shows how unhappy and insecure she is in her own life.

    • Wren says:

      Honestly I think literally everything she does demonstrates how insecure and unhappy she is. If she had even a fraction of the contentment she claims, her behavior would be worlds different in every way. Sadly for her, it doesn’t seem like she’s ever been truly happy and is unlikely to ever be so with the way she carries on.

  9. claire says:

    So she can ramble on incessantly in interviews, at her concerts (to the audience’s boredom), sic her weirdo paid-for friends after him, laugh and fave jokes on Twitter about him being gay but he can’t mention that he knows her and they got divorced.

    Just another day in batshit crazy Leann world.
    I wonder if Dean sent any letters himself to her unhinged jewelry maker friend that was making silencing threats to him and his sister the other week?

  10. funcakes says:

    And shots have been fired. My God this chick is exhausting. For someone who couldn’t wait to get rid of him she also seems quite obsessed with him.
    LeAnn and her coven have been waiting for this book to come out for several months now I’m sure. The man knows what he can and cannot say.
    And what can he say that LeAnn hasn’t said herself in the last six years.
    How much you want to bet th at she listen to Brandi’s interview with Dean like people who listen to Pink Floyd backwards to find satanic messages.
    And what lawyer ? She has to beg for freebies on social media. Probably one of those lawyers that advertise during Jerry Springer.
    And by the way, one of her dear, dear best friend forever has flown away from the nest. Eddie must be jealous.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      I’ll bet she is obsessed simply because he did move on and seems to be happy. How dare he be happy. She is supposed to be the happy one and she has to fake it.

      BTW, love that old horrid picture they keep using of her. If it’s money she needs, she might check her nostrils – like finding change in the couch cushions.

      • funcakes says:

        Have you seen recent pictures of her? She is wandering in Lindsay territory.

      • Kelly says:

        I was thinking the same thing. She wants to be the haunting dream, the one that got away. Instead of it’s probably like run for the hills, I dodged a bullet.

        This line made me laugh, ““I just don’t get it. She already killed my happiness the first time around. [It’s like], ‘Move on already, LeAnn. I’ve moved on!’ ”

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Like when a group of kids are standing around admiring a bug on the ground and some kid comes over and just stomps on it without warning. Intrique and apprecaite and then DEAD!!! Just dead!!

      • lucy2 says:

        “How dare he be happy. She is supposed to be the happy one and she has to fake it. ” That’s it right there.

      • AntiSocialButterfly says:

        Your last paragraph made me snort!

    • Wren says:

      Because in her perfect world, Dean would quietly pine for her forever, never quite finding someone as good as her. She’d be the one who got away, the love of his life that can’t ever be replaced. Anything he said about her would have a wistful longing to the words, and he would be heartbroken over her until the end of his days.

      Lol, nope!

  11. Elisabeth says:

    I guess she is so confused by a working husband

  12. JenniferJustice says:

    She absolutely wants a cut of that book’s sales. She is desperate for money and will do anything, other than work, to get it. If she tries to cause him trouble, I hope he socks it right back to her and sues her for breaching their NDA all the times she’s talked about him since they split. It goes both ways. She can take his book money and he can take Eddie’s toys and future vacations. STFU LeAnn and earn your money legitimately. I feel like this greedy ploy of her’s is so obvious.

    • funcakes says:

      I remember when she released that awful Spitfire and tried to take credit for a song he wrote. The song she said was an apology to Dean. He was obviously apologizing to himself because he wrote the Damn song.
      But he would only get Five bucks in royalties if lawyers were involved.

    • Christin says:

      Has he ever said anything that was truly surprising? She was possibly at her calmest state during that marriage, so his comment last year about being father/manager/whatever certainly was no great reveal.

      Is he just supposed to pretend the marriage never happened?

      This does look like a pathetic attempt to get money or harm his book sales.

  13. bravocueen says:

    She loves it. If she cared about having her name in the press in a negative way, she would have paid Brandi off as well, way back when she was screwing her husband.

    • Nana says:

      She tried, Brandi told her F888 O88

    • Christin says:

      I think she refused and made $$$ off a book instead.

    • starfish says:

      Leann can’t keep buying everyone, her money is running out. The has been and her loser hubs don’t work. Did Kiki finally run? The creepy Darrel and his wife are just nasty people. Nashville has noticed how low a writer can go to protect what few clients he has left.

      • funcakes says:

        Darrell and his husband are both old enough to be grandfathers. It really is a mystery as to why they want to be involved in these high school games LeAnn put them in the middle of. If a friend of my tried to pull me in there drama I would tell them to adjust their medication.
        I know Roger has jewelry to sell, but it’s looks like something Lily Munster would wear.
        Darrell used to write hits according to his Wikipedia which I’m sure he wrote himself.
        Its sad to see all these people waist so much time when they have SOOO
        much going on in their personal life.

  14. InvaderTak says:

    What kind of lawyer signs an official letter “very truly yours”? That’s creepy.

  15. Kelly says:

    Almost makes me want to buy his book to support him.

    Love this quote, ““I just don’t get it. She already killed my happiness the first time around. [It’s like], ‘Move on already, LeAnn. I’ve moved on!’ ”

  16. Mandie says:

    She’s a supah stah y all. And she’s the only one that matters. Truly happy people couldn’t care less about their exes

  17. Kat says:

    Dean already gave a pretty revealing interview last year (and it was awesome).

    What could he possibly reveal….in a cookbook?!? Anyone know what he said?

    • tweetersagainstcheaters says:

      I bought the cookbook, and I would like to add, I love it! It’s very well done, beautiful pictures, and the recipes are easy to fullow. The very little bit Dean mentioned in the forward of the book was done as a way to tie in the name of the book. He was heartbroken, why is he not allowed to say that? She has always said more then he ever did. Her whole problem is, she and Eddie have told their “truth” (lie) to Brandi’s boys and she is afraid they will learn the real truth. Leann is the one that needs to move on with all of her light and love and chalkboard bull shit she needs to start doing what she preaches.
      She thinks she has a chance to re-invent herself as a Boho Indie artist, what she doesnt understand is, no matter what she calls herself she is a home-wrecking cheating, lying, selfish person and the public, esp Mom’s arent buying it. There are too many much better artists and songwriters out there now to want to buy her JingleJangle bullshit

      • shayne says:

        Yes, In his forward, he mostly faults himself for being too driven to help her revive her career. The failed marriage is what propelled him to his current career as a chef. So he writes about how that came about, without dissing Leann in the process, at all. He’s a class act.

      • Kate says:


        I am going to work the phrase “JingleJangle bullshit” into every conversation I have for the rest of the week.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      He wrote “don’t confuse canallini beans with your laxatives”. Kidding. I have no idea.

      You know we could have some serious fun with this, right? Like the T-shirt slogans. Okay. Give me a minute and I’ll come up with some possibilities. Right now the broccolii soup I just ate is wreaking havok on my system. BRB.

    • Christin says:

      Don’t have the book, but did read what sounded like a book forward message that mainly talked about his grandmother’s influence in getting him interested in cooking. There was a little mention of how he whipped up meals on a tour bus.

      Within the week, we’ll probably see a photo of some culinary delight Eddie ‘prepared’. So predictable.

  18. AmyB says:

    LeAnn has literally talked about her affair with Eddie for YEARS, and has made comments about not being happy or fulfilled in her previous marriage ad nauseam! What the HELL is her problem???? He probably mentioned her like: “LeAnn and I used to love to make this guacamole recipe” LMAO!! She is clearly after a cut of the sales. This woman is truly just sad and pathetic at this point! I have always been team Dean 😉 He showed class and restraint with her hurtful behavior and I was glad to hear he found love again. Hope she doesn’t get anything out of this besides more legal fees.

  19. Cici says:

    I keep thinking there will come a day when LeAnn will just get tired of all this and stop being ridiculous. It never comes though and it just gets worse. I hope Dean’s book is a best-seller and makes him a ton of money. Doubtful this letter will do anything except rack up some more attorney’s fees for LeAnn. She really has become just a sad, sore, bitter loser.

    • puravidacostarica says:

      Are you sure you don’t mean “biter”? (from one of LeAnn’s old chalkboard postings)

  20. Lucy says:

    So, he’s winning at life. That’s all I’ve got.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      And we must come up with a plan to make him a huge mega-star. I dont’ know how, I just know it needs to be done.

      • funcakes says:

        He got rid of LeAnn therefore he won the lottery of life.
        I would send Eddie an Edible Bouquet of thanks every year.

    • starfish says:

      Yep, and Leann and few posters on chalk talk are just so funny. Who needs a singer to confirm your thought in life. Those people need therapy or a hobby at best. The chalk talk will be her downfall, it’s joked about EVERYDAY on the internet and not in a good way for Leann.

      Leann preys on the sick, the old, people on welfare, and the lowest of the lowest. She stalks them to buy her failed products on line. 12 sweatshirts will never make you a living Leann.

      • joanne says:

        i needed this today. every single day one of her fans writes that on her chalktalks. i cannot imagine being so pathetic that i was relying on leann to boost my spirits day by day.

  21. Deanne says:

    So LeAnn can give interview after interview talking about the affair, her unhappiness in her first marriage and lack of fulfillment etc. She can write an album with songs documenting how she slept with a married Father while married herself and how great that was. She can favourite and lol tweets and comments insulting her ex and insinuating he’s gay and yet he’s not allowed to mention her name under any circumstances. That’s really interesting. LeAnn’s level of narcissism is astounding.

    • Kate says:

      You nailed it Deanne. It is narcissism run wild. She didn’t want him, but how dare he move on with his life. He should still be pining over her and, even if he isn’t, he can’t get anywhere without her being the cause and effect. The world revolves around the narcissist. They are mentally ill.

    • AmyB says:

      I agree. For all the ribbing and joking, LeAnn really does exhibit troubling personality traits: Borderline Personality Disorder comes to mind, along with a narcissistic personality. Not a good combo especially if no treatment or acknowledgement of the problem exists.

  22. MeAnnWhines says:

    She cannot stand that his star is outshining hers. She needs to realize that there is nothing he could say that is going to tarnish her image. Her image is already ruined. She did that to herself through social media. While trying to rub Brandi’s nose in her happpppiness, she destroyed her image and career. I’m sure she’d love a cut of Dean’s book, since nothing she does is selling anymore. She earned her way onto the Most Hated Celebrity list all by herself.
    One thing that is clear in this mess, is that she threw away a great guy for a pos.
    Good luck with your book Dean, I’ll be buying a copy!

    • Christin says:

      Your user name is hilarious.

    • Julie says:

      @MeAnnWhines. LOL Perfect name, Perfect post!! EAT YOUR HEART OUT LEANN!!! Dean rocks, Leann rolls… on down the hill. Sue crazy Biatch! She’d sue her own dog if she could.

  23. Juliette says:

    I took a look at this lawyer’s website, it is very basic and poorly constructed. Obviously not paying for top notch representation based on this letter and their site. Not that a website is the be all to end all but it certainly gives an indication of how little she can afford. This is so obviously a press and cash grab, pathetic.

    • funcakes says:

      LeAnn must think she is the only person who can hire a lawyer. As Dean has proven in the past he knows LeAnn better than anyone. I’m sure he to has a lawyer who gave him proper representations.
      I’m sure there were lawyers who told LeAnn that Dean crossed no line. But LeAnn being LeAnn she found someone willing to take time out of more serious cases to send a letter to a hard working man trying to make a living .
      Maybe if she put this much effort in finding Eddie a job then adding more casino dates to her TOUR,she would be actually be making enough money so she doesn’t have to feed off the fame of others.

      • Juliette says:

        I read the intro to his book and she really has nothing to worry about. He didn’t slam her, as he certainly had the right to do. She is grasping at straws.

      • starfish says:

        Dean just told what everyone has been saying, Leann, move along loser.

      • Myriam says:

        And I’m pretty sure, like Brandi, Dean’s publisher had their legal team make sure that all of their T’s were crossed and I’s were dotted. Meaning Dean was well within his rights to say the little bit of information that he provided, which, reading comments from posters who read the book, was nothing.

    • Erinn says:

      hahhaah thanks for the idea of looking up this site, Juliette. The whole thing is made in tables, and all of the HTML/CSS is all declared on the page, or used as inline-styling. It’s hilarious. It wasn’t even a good site for like…1998.

      They could pretty much blindly pick out a free template for wix or a site builder like that and have a site thats 1000x better.

      I do web design/development for a living- I absolutely judge companies on what kind of web presence they have. I’d NEVER go to a lawyer that had that as a webpage.

      • Juliette says:

        Not to mention the poor grammar usage. It’s obviously a low rent, cheap lawyer. Terrible and embarrassing.

    • MichLynn says:

      Poor thing, guess she can’t afford high-powered lawyer Neal Hersh anymore. Next lawyer she’ll be needing is a bankruptcy one.

  24. funcakes says:

    Brandi is going to have Dean on her podcast. I’m sure Brandi is going to say something to drive LeAnn crazy. LeAnn is probably foaming at the mouth and downing tequila as we speak.
    She didn’t even congratulate kiki on her citizenship last week or throw a party.
    LeAnn is the only one that matters

    • JenniferJustice says:

      She’ll probably celebrate Kiki’s citizenship by going on vacation and taking bikini selfies. “Look at me Kiks! I’m celebrating your life-changing event!” Whatever.

      • stinky says:

        who’s Kiki?

      • Christin says:

        Someone on here once described her as a paid sanity companion. Technically, she was/is some type of assistant and possibly a nanny.

      • starfish says:

        Did Kiki move on too. Abuse by Leann has to be the worst any young women could go through. imo Maybe Kiki got room and board, no monies and she was not a citizen until a couple of weeks ago. Kiki always looked like a leftover when trailing behind Eddie and Leann.

        Suing a poster, Dentist, etc. tells way too much about her. Toxic! The housekeeper won her case against her, the poster won, Leann forgets to tell all of that when interviewed about her REAL life.

  25. anne_000 says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t they pull this stunt or another type of stunt on one of Brandi’s book? And didn’t EC sue Brandi for child support money after she started making her own money and even though he gives her only about $1100 per month on child support? And she ended up having to give him 5 to 6 figures?

    It seems to me that when Dean and Brandi start moving on with their own lives and make their own money, LR and EC swoop right in and try to get them some part of their exes’ hard work in addition to what seems like punishing Dean and Brandi for moving on with their lives.

    It’s like because LR and EC can’t ever let go and move on, they won’t let their exes move on too. What a nightmare. They’re like dirty toilet paper that gets stuck to your shoe and trails behind you and which is impossible to take off without using some kind of scraper.

    • funcakes says:

      It turns out that Eddie over paid in child support and had to be reimbursed. But I think they come to some agreement to put it into some fund for the boys. That’s what I remember reading a couple of years ago. It might have changed.

  26. why? says:

    Dean is scheduled to do Brandi’s podcast today, what will Leann do to silence Dean? The last time Dean agreed to go on Brandi’s podcast he had to back out of it because Leann sat on one of her twitter accounts making threats towards him. Then Darrell Brown went to a tabloid and gave an interview about how Brandi lied about Dean going on her podcast and that Dean was never scheduled to go on her show. I wonder if Dean will back out of Brandi’s show again since Leann and Darrell are sending the lawyers after him.

    Dean was a good support system for Leann. When Leann was with Dean, he kept her crazy hidden from the public, she got invited to award shows, won awards, her albums and songs charted, and she didn’t spend all day on social media. Leann is constantly bragging about what a great and supportive husband Eddie is, but if Eddie was that supportive, we wouldn’t see such a drastic change in Leann’s career and mental health. Leann isn’t happy being married to Eddie. It’s reflected in her work and need for validation from her fans.

  27. funcakes says:

    Well LeAnn is predictable as usual. She saying that haters are going to hate, the people she love knows her and her ever loving husband is doing something wonderful for her as we speak.
    Poor Eddie. I wonder what she’s going to buy herself this Valentine’s day then claim he purchased it.

  28. claire says:

    Dean’s being super aggressive tagging her in promotional tweets now. I imagine just to piss her off for sending that letter. I know it’s petty but I personally find it hilarious when people stand up to these loser celebrities like this.

  29. Emily C. says:

    I have a totally unsupported theory that they’re all in this together, that this is a publicity stunt and LeAnn will get a payoff for it. Something about the way they’ve been playing their relationship in the press rings false to me. This goes for Brandi as well. Like I said, totally unsupported, just a feeling I’ve got.

    • guest says:

      @emily c
      I had my suspicious for awhile also that Leann and Brandi might be both playing the fans. It wouldn’t surprise me if they were faking their feuds. Both are thirsty and famewhores.

      • lucy2 says:

        I think Leann and Brandi both feed off the drama, and it certainly made both of them way more famous.
        I don’t really follow any of them closely, but I rarely hear about Dean. He seems much more low key and uninterested in all those stupid games.

    • Yepisaidit says:

      Hmmm this does give him more publicity for the book that was already out. Who knew it was out or that he even wrote a cookbook? 🤔

  30. Deanne says:

    Instead of wasting money threatening her ex for daring to speak of his own heartbreak and new happiness, she should hire a stylist. There are photos of her on the DM site and she’s wearing the worst, most ill fitting, hideous ensemble ever. She has no taste at all. Her hair looks unwashed as well. Dean is the real winner in this whole debacle. He was able to make a clean break and move away, because they had no children. That’s not to say that made the divorce less painful. Just that he didn’t have to deal with Eddie, the deadbeat, trying to claim ownership of his kids and he wasn’t forced to stay in L.A. in order to share custody. Dean seems like a really lovely human being. I really wish him all the best.

    • Christin says:

      Dean also seems to have some common sense. Hopefully he discussed what he was putting in the book with legal counsel, just as Brandi said she did.

      I don’t think WeWe has a toned pin to stand on with this last minute threat.

    • starfish says:

      I wish she would sue him, let it go to court. Why all the letters to threaten people? After so many years, most of these are not even legal anymore after a divorce. Dean has DIRT on her and she knows it. I wonder how many nasty, illegal things she has done?

      • Deanne says:

        LeAnn is a bully and she uses lawyers to try to intimidate people, Dean was married to her. Everyone knows she cheated and hurt him. He’s not telling the public anything they don’t already know. If she tried to sue him, it woukd be thrown out, especially since she’s given dozens of interviews about her version of the events surrounding the affair and it’s afternmath. Imagine what Dean knows about her. Like you said. Dirt, dirt and more dirt.

  31. holly hobby says:

    Ok you can read his foreword on Amazon. Just click on the look inside this book and you can read his comments about his ex. It wasn’t specific and the information printed on it wasn’t anything different from his interview last year. I don’t think it’s a big deal frankly. He said all he needed to say in a classy way.

    • claire says:

      It’s no big deal at all. Her producer’s husband, and her BFF, posting all about it on his facebook and going on (drunk-sounding) rants on Twitter for days about it really shows how fragile all of their little narcissistic selves are. They can’t handle even a twinge of someone else adding to the narrative that they’re trying to create. It sends them spiraling. They really are all totally emotionally unhinged. If she’s gonna pay for friends, you’d think she’s at least pick out some stable high quality ones who aren’t just going to help continue to sink her career.

  32. jessoutwest says:

    That’s rich, LeAnn says she can post about Brandi’s boys because they are part of her life, but Dean can’t post about his own ex-wife? She doesn’t understand she doesn’t own that part of his life.

    What a LOSER!!!!!!!!!

    • starfish says:

      The problem with Leann is that she has the mentality of a 13 year old. Who would want to ever work with her has to be as nuts as she is. Eddie picked the immature to mooch off her, so sad she cannot admit that. He’s not a hot hubby, he’s a loser who passes on his STD’s to others, does not work, and has no friends. I’m sure today she is crying that both Dean and Brandi have had success, while her own career is in the toilet. If she thinks for 1 hot minute that Brandi will ever back down to a D=listed country singer, she is so wrong. Brandi’s kids will write a book, good thing that Brandi will direct them to never sign a thing for the country ho.

  33. emma says:

    Interesting little passive aggressive move there, spelling Dean’s name as “Deane” in the email address.

  34. puravidacostarica says:

    Apologize if this has already been noted, but a SIX-PAGE confidentiality provision (“Section 14, pages 24-30”) ??? Bitch be cray, always cray, no hope for her. Imagine what poor lil Kiki had to sign.

    • puravidacostarica says:

      I’d also like to add that a confidentiality provision with an unlimited duration might be viewed by a court as unreasonable and, thus, unenforceable. I would say that 5 years was long enough for him to keep his mouth shut and that he timed the interviews that he had last year so as to fall outside that five-year period. I’m guessing that Dean and Dean’s lawyers will tell LeAnn and her legal team to pound sand.

  35. Snowpea says:

    Ok I love a good conspiracy theory and here’s mine.

    Dean knows old mate Rimes back to front so I reckon he threw in a few mentions knowing full well she’d bite and hey presto! Free publicity and ‘Eat your heart out’ suddenly number one bestseller and Dean has chugged his way up the social ladder from ‘Leann’s jilted ex’ ‘to A list in his own right.

    And if anyone queries the inclusion of a reference to Leann he quips ‘ She broke my heart and the best way to mend a broken heart is through food, right?’ and it seems completely legit to mention her. Like, does anyone in all seriousness believe he still gives a fiddlers fart about Rimes?

    This guy is very, very clever and cunning in a good way. What’s that quote? ‘The best revenge is living well’? I reckon he is winning at life now.

    Sucks to be you Leann. Seriously you are such a moron…you could just tweet ‘Congrats DS’ and get on with life but you played straight into his hands.

    Team Dean!

    • Christin says:

      I think he is clever and controlled enough to play her like a fiddle, too. When Brandi launched her first book, remember how batty LR acted? Crying in public, for example.

      • funcakes says:

        I loved how she had everyone at a eatery to waste their time crying about the book. I would have told her to get a f#cking grip on her life.
        Well there’s another coming. It would have been finished by now but her inner circle helped the author add some chapters. Plus Dean’s sister may be cooperating after the taunts. Leann is just so damn helpful.

      • Tate says:

        I think Dean is very smart. Gotta remember that this is the guy that kept her crazy ass under control.

  36. Jane says:

    I left the first review on Amazon for Dean’s book and also commented on his You Tube page saying that he deserves the best. After all Leann put him through , he is an angel for putting up with her.

  37. My Two Cents says:

    Look at that scowl in those pics! I can just imagine her, DB, and his hubs sitting around the table complaining how great she is and how Dean and Brandi have done her so wrong! Eddie is sitting looking at the three of them in disgust as he swigs tequila straight out of the bottle. To hell with a shot glass!
    For all of her ripped off chalk talk, she shows it’s all just meaningless words. She can’t stand her and EC have no career and Brandi and Dean are blossoming. Ah wonderful karma finally!

  38. Jayna says:

    I’m happy for him. I will buy the book and add it to my collection of recipe books. I like that it seems to be about health and energy and good food, so will be good for my New Year’s resolution, starting out energized.

    I guess it was too much to ask of LeAnn to just put out a tweet congratulating him.

    • gwen says:

      I’m going to buy it also. I was really impressed with him today on “The Talk” and the food he cooked on the show looked very tasty.

  39. shannon says:

    I’m going on Twitter just for the drama. Facebook is for normalcy, Twitter will be when I want to eat popcorn and watch. This ish sounds fun!
