Eddie Cibrian’s marriage is falling apart after affair with LeAnn Rimes

The alleged affair of two married costars is always good gossip, but this LeAnn Rimes-Eddie Cibrian stuff just keeps going and going. US Weekly busted the married LeAnn and the married Eddie having an affair while filming a Lifetime movie. At first, Eddie tried to deny it, but US Weekly was all “we have the video, let’s take a look, shall we?” After that, both LeAnn and Eddie sort of avoided the spotlight, and yet the controversy made that Lifetime movie one of the highest rated premieres on cable television ever.

You’d think that after that very public incident, Eddie and LeAnn would have avoided each other at all costs, simply out of respect for their spouses. Not so much. They were busted having drinks together at a Lakers game just a few weeks ago, and now the National Enquirer is reporting that that little incident was the final nail in the coffin of Eddie’s marriage:

Eddie Cibrian is on even shakier ground with his wife after he was caught with LeAnn Rimes – again!

The 35-year-old TV hunk had convinced his wife Brandi Glanville to give him a second chance after a steamy video showed him kissing the country singer earlier this year, insiders say.

But after Eddie and LeAnn were photographed together recently at a Lakers game, his wife hit the rook, sources say.

“Brandi said this was the last straw!” a friend told the Enquirer. “Eddie trying to talk his way out of it – saying he just bumped into LeAnn at a bar inside the Staples Center where the Lakers were playing. He said, ‘What was I supposed to do?’”

“Brandi told him he should have run the other way. He promised to stay away from LeAnn, and after all the pain and embarrassment he’s already caused Brandi, he went back for seconds! Now their marriage is hanging by a thread.”

[The new photos of Eddie and LeAnn at the NBA payoff game] could end his eight-year marriage for good.

“Brandi believed Eddie last March when he told her that he and LeAnn started to have feelings for each other through working together, but he insisted they never consummated the relationship,” another friend divulged.

He begged for forgiveness and Brandi gave him a second chance for the sake of their sons Mason, 6, and Jake, 2, said the source.

“But now… Brandi admits their situation is pretty hopeless. Eddie just doesn’t want to change,” noted the first source.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, June 8 2009]

Yeah, Brandi might want to think about getting out of there. Even if she believed Eddie the first time when he told her there was no affair (did she see the video?), fool me twice, shame on me. I get that Brandi and Eddie have kids together, and it’s not so easy walking away from that, but come on. Eddie and LeAnn were having a torrid affair, and most likely still are. Call it a day.

What’s weird is that there seems to be no controversy within LeAnn’s marriage to Dean Sheremet. They seem really solid. I’m not saying Dean is gay (yes I am), but could it be that Dean and LeAnn have some sort of understanding? Some kind of open marriage? That would probably make them one of the most solid relationships in Hollywood.

    No kidding, she remarked with a hint of sarcasm in her voice!

  2. bdthomp says:

    Dean is in much better shape than I expected.

  3. Shell Bell says:

    LeAnn has man face and her husband has gay face. What an ugly looking pair. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie whatshisname belong together since they are both pieces of crap.

  4. Joe says:

    Brandi, is much, much hotter than LeAnn. He’s a fool.

  5. Carrie says:

    What kind of idiots have an affair and than go to the very public Lakers Game?? They were asking to get caught!!

  6. vixenella says:

    I have never found her very pretty. Shame on her for messing with a married guy while married herself-but at least she did with a hot piece!

  7. nony says:

    She should have booked the second that shit hit the wire. If you let them off the hook once, they’re sure to repeat.

    I told my man when we started, that the quickest way to end our relationship, is to involve another party. I don’t forgive and forget, I’ll just simply forget him and move on.

    Personally, once I can’t trust someone, I’d rather them not be in my life, especially as the epicenter.

  8. n says:

    it’s not ok to mess with a person who’s in a relationship or married.

    look at what can happen — hearts broken, kids losing out, scandals, alimony, and all the confusion and pain for all involved.

    why oh why do some people think it’s perfectly alright? i’ll never know.

    wonder if this will affect LeAnn’s fan base?

  9. Shelly Shellz says:

    Ew, his wife looks 1,000 times btr then Leann dog-face

  10. Granger says:

    Seriously, what was he thinking, cheating on his gorgeous wife with HER? I know, I know, looks aren’t everything, but on a simple superficial level, LeAnn Rimes ain’t all that.

  11. Lina says:

    They marriage was probably falling apart WAY BEFORE LeAnn Rimes showed up

  12. Gigohead says:

    I agree, the Mrs. is hotter than LeAnn. He’s a fool for straying.

  13. RAN says:

    Y’know… sometimes people stray because they want to. Not because the wife is unattractive or the new ‘piece’ is better looking. Could be a lack of chemistry at home, could be boredom, lack of sexual creativity, could be that the person straying is a lowlife loser who doesn’t think about anyone else but him(her)self (yes BP I’m looking at you!). There are many variables and I’m not sticking up for any of them, but to speculate about why he left the beautiful wife for the “unattractive” Rimes, is pretty dumb. If it’s true, his problems are within himself and do not reflect on either of the two women involved.

  14. goaheadandyellatme... says:

    I keep reading speculation that Leanne’s husband is gay, and that they have some kind of an understanding. My question is, why would someone marry someone that they know is gay, if they themselves don’t need the “cover” for their own proclivities? It just doesn’t make sense to me. Can someone explain?

  15. poopoo says:

    Looks are everything to people on this site. I just read Nicole kIdman should not have anymore kids because her child is ugly. Sad. Now a person should stay with his wife because her face is so much prettier than the other woman’s face. Hey how about elevating it to. Marriage vows. The needs of the children and morals. Nope didn’t think so. So if the affair person is better looking that is enough to justify it. Hey sometimes good looking people are no fun to live with. Imagine that

  16. sunseeker says:

    It should not come down to looks, marriage vows should be important and if you don’t like the way your marriage is going, leave don’t humiliate the person you are married to. From all account Eddie has not been faithful to any girl since he was 15 years old, that should tell you who is at fault here, and Leanne is a woman who has no character morals or class. This man has 2 little children for gods sake, that would deter me to start with. Any woman who get’s involved with a man with children is scum.

  17. Skye says:

    Dean and Lance Bass make a nice looking couple who have alot in common as friends as well. Friendship and trust are the most important elements in a relationship.

  18. Gertie says:

    LeAnn and Dean could still love eachother even if Dean were gay. It must be a real pain in the ass to have the matter of your sexuality speculated on all the time. That said, Dean is much more fine than Eddie. Dean is well cut and has a kind look in his eyes, while Eddie looks lecherous and may have an STD or two. Who knows?
