LeAnn Rimes is worried about Eddie Cibrian’s newly single costar, Rachel Bilson

leann brown

About a week before Thanksgiving, I noticed some reports about LeAnn Rimes changing up her hair. As it turned out, it was for real – LeAnn has been various shades of blonde for many years, but she suddenly went for a warm shade of, like, medium brown. She even got some of the gossip media outlets to write about the hair change, because she doesn’t have much else going on. Considering LeAnn’s insistence on stalking, harassing and Single White Female-ing Brandi Glanville, I figured that Brandi had probably darkened her hair and LeAnn was merely copying her. But as it turns out, the real reason behind the hair change is probably even crazier.

LeAnn Rimes doesn’t want to know how she would live without Eddie Cibrian. According to a source, LeAnn (35) is working herself into a state over the fact that Eddie Cibrian, 44, was cast opposite the newly single Rachel Bilson in the ABC drama Take Two.

“Rachel was still with Hayden Christensen when Eddie auditioned but they’ve since split and LeAnn doesn’t like it one bit,” tattles the tipster. “He’s told her she’s being ridiculous, but she can’t help being worried… I imagine she will be popping in to surprise him at work a lot.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Do you see it? LeAnn is Single White Female-ing Rachel Bilson now. First comes the brown hair, then LeAnn will start dressing like Bilson, and LeAnn has probably already started social-media stalking Bilson. I already feel sorry for Rachel and what she’s going to be putting up with now. It’s going to get so bad. And while I think Eddie’s general type is merely “two legs and a pulse,” I actually don’t see him being all that interested in Bilson. She seems so wholesome and undramatic, and he likes ‘em trashy and messy.

    I confuse her with Blair from Gossip Girl. But why would either of those women be interested in Eddie? Leann is in a hell of her own construction.

    • Farah says:

      That’s funny because Adam Brody, Bilson’s former long time boyfriend, is married to Blair from GG. HE def has a type

    • runcmc says:

      Especially considering Rachel Bilson’s marriage ended because of rumored infidelity. I think she would be the LAST person Leann should be worried about, since she knows how it feels.

      • Raina says:

        I I can’t imagine anyone wanting Eddie but it would be a nice little karmic twist. Some people get more gross the more that you know them and this couple definitely gets uglier

    • mary says:

      I think that as soon as ole Eduardo starts making a little moolah, he will bolt. so, I hope he makes a lot, also Brandi will get more child support. win win.

  2. Sunny says:

    Lol at “two legs and a pulse” 😂 Are you sure he can count that high?

  3. AnnaKist says:

    Well, you know the old saying, luv – if they’ll do it with you, they’ll do it to you… Anyway, does Ms Bilson have a bigger bank account? Hmmm. Maybe you should be worried, then…

  4. CynicalAnn says:

    I almost spit out my coffee. I think Rachel Bilson could a little bit better than Eddie!!!! (As if she would start up with him-he’s such a catch.)

  5. Brittney B. says:

    As much as I want to ignore this person completely, these stories always hit a raw nerve, because I went to college with someone who methodically started dating every single serious boyfriend of mine, immediately after we split. She started hanging out with my friend group & demonizing me & basically taking my life… it was a life I didn’t even want anymore, and of course there were no kids or tabloids involved. And it STILL stung. It still made me feel crazy every time I saw her doing all the things I’d done a year before.

    Every time I read about LeeAnn, that girl comes screaming back into focus. Clearly they cannot form identities of their own, clearly they are miserable without validation from a man… and yet emotionally, it’s infuriating. I hope Rachel manages to stay away from most of it. I mean, she surely won’t be checking her co-worker’s wife’s social media feed, so there goes 95% of LeeAnn’s efforts right away.

    • HelloSunshine says:

      I’m really sorry that happened to you. May I ask how that ended up? Did people figure out what she was doing? I truly don’t understand people who do things like this and have no regard for how hurtful it is.

      As for Leann, as usual, she isn’t even trying to be subtle. If Eddie’s being cast in new stuff, does that mean he’s bringing in the big bucks instead of Leann? That must drive her nuts

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        He’s a C-/D lister. No big bucks for him, he knows that he’d have to start paying more child support.

    • Bridget says:

      I went to college with someone like that too. It was weird. Whenever a girl she knew expresses interest in a guy or had a new boyfriend, she would decide they were her new best friend and then romantically pursue then. It was super weird, and initially I felt like the only person that saw the pattern (of course, aided by her actively pursuing the guy I was just starting to date) but eventually everyone caught on. By the time we graduated college she’d alienated everyone she knew and had a rep as being completely unstable. It actually ended up being a really good learning experience for me, though. It’s helped to recognize red flags in people, and understand healthy friendships and relationships. As an adult, many years removed, I wonder what must have screwed her up to the level that she needed to ‘win’ a romantic partner over another person. She ended up losing every friendship she had over it, and every guy she ‘won’ cheated on her.

    • Athyrmose says:

      So glad that person is no longer in your life. Gross.

    • MadChatter says:

      I had a similar situation with my freshman year roommate. She started dressing like me, wore her hair like mine, listening to the music I listened to, snagged the job I had told her I was going to apply for (I had a full day of classes and planned on going the next day-she went that afternoon and got it), would tell my boyfriend I wasn’t home when he called (no cell phones-just a cordless! She’d pick up and take it into the hallway after a “Oh, hi, hold on one sec.”) while I was napping or studying and keep him on the phone to chat in the hallway. I had no idea the first few times she did it. I finally called her out on it and she denied it. She eventually did try to sleep with my boyfriend at a party I couldn’t make it to. The whole thing was insane. I transferred after that year, for other reasons, and was happy to never deal with her again.

      She tracked me down on Facebook after 15 years and seeing that my profile , which did have my relationship status public, said I was engaged, messaged me asking to be invited to my wedding!

    • Wren says:

      I had a friend like that in college too. Not nearly as enterprising, but more like she was too lazy to build her own identity and discover her own interests so she took mine. At first it was great because yay shared interests! We have so much to talk about! Then it got weird and frustrating until finally she found another group of friends to sponge her identity off of and I was left in the dust.

      I have to say it really hurt because I considered her a good friend but trying to take everything of mine and make it hers grated my last nerve. She tried to pretend my boyfriend secretly wanted her (he did not), she transferred into my university (which, okay, I don’t own the place), changed majors to my major (um, okay…), she joined the same clubs I was in (and none I wasn’t in), wouldn’t stop talking about how she wanted the same jobs I had, pretended my pets were hers, and basically oozed herself into every aspect of my life. She probably would have even “borrowed”my truck if she could drive stick.

      I was so ready to be happy for her in her own life but she chose to try and take mine instead. Like, get your own boyfriend, join your own clubs, get your own job, I want to celebrate these things with you, but you cannot have mine.

      • Tara says:

        Weird that so many have had the psychic leech experience in college. I had one my freshman year. Initially we were just dorm mates with common interests. Then she changed her hair and how she dressed and copped a couple of distinct sartorial affections off me.

        Ok I sounded ridiculous there. It was to avoid saying she copied my sharpied barcode shirt idea. I thought that would sound lame. Ha ha.

        When she borrowed a bracelet my dead grandmother gave me, indefinitely, then lost it, I was done with her.

  6. Christin says:

    The LR drama drought appears to have ended. I thought maybe she’d matured out of that nonsense.

    Rachel probably need not worry. Isn’t casting Eddie basically a guarantee for a quick flop when it comes to TV shows? If he’s playing her love interest, it must be a comedy.

    • Deanne says:

      Eddie is a show killer for sure. I’m guessing he came cheap. He’s probably so thrilled for a chance to work away from LeAnn too. Her cray cray is probably going to be on full throttle for the next while.

      • Christin says:

        My first thought was how did he get cast? He probably was a cheap casting option. Maybe he offered to be paid in tequila.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        it’s also probably a really, REALLY bad script.

        don’t get me wrong, I thought Rachel Bilson was cute as all heck as Summer on the OC, but she hasn’t really done much noteworthy beyond that. I seriously doubt that she was their first choice.

        so, they keep going down the list of actors and actresses, from best to worst, hoping they don’t have to go TOO far down to get a “yes” to an offer.

      • starfish says:

        Wonder if Eddie is on any bad list in Hollywood? He might need a few bucks for a lawyer if someone has a huge story on him. Just asking.

      • sammidee says:

        Have you seen Hart of Dixie? She was super adorable in it!

      • Deanne says:

        I loved Hart of Dixie and yes, I too find her adorable. Eddie looks like a hagard mess and she looks far younger than her years. He would be better suited to someone fresh out of rehab, not her.

  7. Nicole says:

    How you get em is how you lose em. Serves you right

  8. DiligentDiva says:

    It’s not that I think Eddie wouldn’t, I just hope Rachel has higher standards. I’m still hoping for her and Hayden to eventually reconcile. They were a cute couple and they broke up once before and got back together.

  9. RBC says:

    Eddie probably has his sight set on another “sugar mama”. LeAnn’ s bank balance must be getting low of funds. LeAnn is going to be so focused on Rachel, that she will not notice that Eddie has found someone new.

  10. JustJen says:

    I think you forgot one important component: money. When Eddie got with crazy, she was a working, high income singer. What has she done lately? Eddie goes for two legs, a pulse and MOOLAH.

  11. Clare says:

    I’m embarrassed for Bilson that she is in the same tv show as this POS.

    Also on what planet would Rachel Bilson, B/C list as she may be, make a play for a guy bet known to be a dead beat dad?

    • Deanne says:

      She wouldn’t. The thing is that LeAnn is so insecure that she believes it could happen.

      • Christin says:

        As someone else mentioned, RB may be a convenient diversion. Any random female could be the real ‘other’ woman of the moment.

        She’d have to bodycam him 24/7 to be certain. What a way to live.

    • Lady D says:

      According to a quick google search, Rachel is worth over $24 million. I think that makes her very attractive to Ediot.

  12. Bejkie says:

    Ew, as if Rachel Bilson would want Eddie. Leann is never going to get it that all she won was the booby prize.

  13. MissMarierose says:

    To paraphrase Whoopi Goldberg’s character from Ghost:
    Rachel, you in danger girl!

  14. Tiffany says:

    This is a insult…to Rachel.

    So LeAnn took this to Star and they ran it. If I was Rachel I would get a lawsuit going just to see who the source was of this story.

  15. Disgusted says:

    I’m sure Rachel has higher standards that Eddie, but it would be such karma for LeAnn. They say how you got em, is how you lose em. It surely couldn’t happen to a nicer person!

  16. OSTONE says:

    Rachel would never. This guy has sleaze written all over him, she probably knows better.

  17. Deanne says:

    She’s literally copied Rachel’s colour and style. What a nut job. She stalked and copied Monica Potter. when all Eddie did was make a pilot that wasn’t picked up and the Brandi SWF has gone on for 8 years. Rachel is beautiful, successful and has the little girl that LeAnn covets too. This is apparently filming in Atlanta, which means that Eddie will be gone a lot.He’ll be gone all week, every week, while they film. How will LeAnn handle it? Drop everything and camp out on the set? Fake illness constantly? She’s been weirdly manic lately and I’m sure this is why. She pushed hard for a Grammy nomination for her LovEisLovE failure and again was ignored. BTW, I thought that Eddie was such an amazing and self sacrificing Father, that he would never, ever consider filming a show that shot away from LA? What changed? Is the money almost gone, or was that melodramatic BS all for the cameras? This is probably Eddie’s last shot at keeping his career. If LeAnn becomes a psycho set stalker, he’ll never get another chance. Being married to your perfect soul mate and in the romance of the century, sure seems to be a life filled with insecurity and doubt.

  18. Beth says:

    Once a cheat always a cheat. When he ditches Leann for someone else, she’ll find out that karma’s a bitch

  19. JA says:

    Eddie wishes! Rachel seems like a smart girl… she will stay away from Eddie outside of work and LeAnn will go crazy thinking of ways to keep Eddie from banging other women…it will be glorious!!!

  20. CityGirl says:

    I think the real story here is: Eddie Cibrian got a Job!

  21. LittlefishMom says:

    I guess LeAnn will have to cancel her Build a Bear tour to follow him.

    • starfish says:

      Build a flop show again. Her last concert was terrible. Go to you-tube and listen to that train wreck. Why would any club book that?

      • Christin says:

        I’m amazed she gets many bookings these days, given her track record. Sad part is, she had a good voice at times. Singing vindictive songs, or songs not within her best range, have not helped.

        Had she stayed with country music and dialed back the drama, she’d probably be doing OK with a residency in Branson or maybe a retro group tour (three well-known 90s female country singers are currently touring together, and it’s probably a lot of fun).

      • LearningtheSystem says:

        I remember her when she was starting out as a child singer. Her voice was amazing. Sad to see how she has fallen apart.

  22. holly hobby says:

    MeAnn, no sane woman would want your prized hubby. You can rest easy. Rachel Bilson isn’t a fool either.

  23. monette says:

    The first timeI read Rachel has a new show I was thrilled, then I got to the part about her costar being Eddie Cibriani and I just lost it.
    Why, God? What has this poor woman done to deserve this??
    Eddie is a bad omen, all of his shows get cancelled after a few episodes. And than there’s the crazy wife stuff.
    Won’t someone save Rachel, please!
    I have a soft spot for her from The OC and Hart of Dixie.

    • Carrie1 says:

      Yeah I wish she didn’t have to work with this guy. Rachel is too good for that.

    • vavavoom says:

      He may be a douchebag in his real life, but he’s not a bad actor imo. He was great on Third Watch. I loved that show. So many actors have cheated, but are still good actors and people watch their shows… Sure, I think it’s an awful thing to do to someone – as a person who has been cheated on by two out of 4 significant others.. but I think LeAnn-who-needs-another-E is making it worse by shoving it in everyone’s faces how in lovE they are. Thou doth protest WAY too much. AGGHH

  24. Happy21 says:

    I was initially going to ask if he plays her dad but I see that she is a LOT older than I thought she was….
    Nonetheless, it ain’t gonna happen. I’m willing to bet the show doesn’t make it.

  25. Arock says:

    Good to Leann is batshit as usual. Who gave Eddie a job? Isn’t he a kiss of death- kill your show, slide on the women, drag it into tabloids. It’s hard to believe any one would take either of their phone calls, trash mag or not.

  26. bonobochick says:

    It’s interesting as both Eddie and LeAnn cheated on their respective first spouses with each other but LeAnn tends to get a lot more nastiness aimed her way than Eddie does. Ugh. I’m not a fan of either but I side-eye that she gets so much more pettiness from random folks than he does.

    • Izzy says:

      No, they both get a lot of pettiness, but MeAnn is the one stalking and copying her perceived “romantic rivals.” It’s creepy AF and Rachel Bilson doesn’t deserve to be single-white-female’d by a narcissistic, insecure piece of trash who’s married to a wandering dong.

  27. phatypopo says:

    It’s funny, when I saw something about this show my first thought was how horrified Leann must be lol.

  28. Moon says:

    As someone who is borderline, I do want to point out that Leann may have something similar. That makes me sympathetic to her. It’s easy to dismiss a woman as crazy and clingy without knowing what she goes through.

    • joanne says:

      does that cause her absolute lack of empathy about what leann and eddie put Brandi through? she doesn’t seem to bothered by that.

    • starfish says:

      What she goes through? That azz did this to herself, she can have the infected peen dragging her shows down to nothing.

  29. WinchesterGirl says:

    Why would LeAnn need to worry about Eddie cheating on her? There’s really no reason absolutely none.

    • Deanne says:

      Except for the pesky fact that he’s literally cheated on every single woman he’s ever been with, throughout his entire life She’s no exception.

    • starfish says:

      I doubt anyone wants to bed Eddie, seems he has one hag on one leg and a bad peen on the other. Not much to brag about anymore.

  30. WhatThe says:

    Whoever chose Ed for the lead, chose poorly. Sorry Rachel. Start looking for your next gig.

  31. Jane says:

    Leann has already copied Rachel with her clothes choice boarding a plane to one of her Christmas gigs: black top and ripped jeans. I’m betting that if anyone goes on Pinterest for Rachel and checks out her clothes Leann on her Eveleighrose page will have the same thing.

    I am waiting for her to lose it again—constantly wanting to know what is happening with Eddie and his far more beautiful co-star.

    • puravidacostarica says:

      Keep an eye out for the brown contact lenses to make an appearance soon. LeAnn’s “aren’t my eyes so blue” contact lenses went in the trash as soon as Eddie signed his contract for this show.

      • Jane says:

        I’ll try, but those d***ed eyes or hers are so squinty and her pupils are often dilated, heaven help me if I can see her eye color at times.

  32. ALF-M says:

    Rachel has class, unlike LeeAnne. LeeAnne, is selling this story of insecurity because she hasn’t had a singing career comeback due to her affair and marriage to Eddie. Rachel also can do 100 times better than Eddie Cibrian (who finally got a paying job with this show) as well as better than Hayden. I never understood why she got back with Hayden after breaking off their engagement and stayed with him as long as she did when they got back together. It was obvious she was the breadwinner in that relationship. She had a steady paycheck with Hart of Dixie when he hardly did any film work for years. She is also now a single mom to Briar Rose. I’m sure she has main custody as Hayden lives full time in Toronto, CA. She doesn’t have time to sneak around with Eddie if she needs to raise a child and keep her career moving ahead.

    • Tamingroman says:

      Anyone else think this is just a network generated news story to gain interest in this new show? While the story line seems interesting I find it hard to believe that Ed can actually carry a lead. This man can’t act and the jobs he was given prior were from friends or because he was pretty. Now he’s bald, greying with one of those pathetic grey alcoholic faces ( to match his balding hair I guess).
      But LeAnn is totally gonna crackhead out. No doubt. Poor Rachael and crew.

  33. NayNay says:

    I guess when you steal a man away from his wife you think everyone is a home-wrecker like yourself.

    • Pumpkin (formally soup, pie) says:

      Spot on! I had this male colleague once, his wife would travel with him every single time he had to travel. Another colleague told me that she used to be his mistress and he married her after he got a divorce. She watched him like a hawk.

  34. Blazing Rattles says:

    She should be worried now that she’s old hat and, to be frank, withering a bit on the vine.

    Surely she must know the sequence by now? Hell… she was the last one.
