Dean Sheremet is engaged for the third time and he’s not even 38 years old

I completely forgot that Dean Sheremet got divorced for a second time. Dean became somewhat famous nearly a decade ago, where after years of being LeAnn Rimes’ lowkey husband, he was publicly humiliated when LeAnn openly cheated on him with Eddie Cibrian. Dean and LeAnn divorced pretty quickly, and many of us assumed that LeAnn gave him a simple payout. Dean moved to New York, went to culinary school, met a nice girl named Sarah Silver, and they got married in August 2011. The marriage lasted just shy of five years, and there were no children and their divorce seemed pretty undramatic too. Well, good news? Dean still believes in love, because he’s engaged again!

Congratulations are in order for Dean Sheremet. The former backup dancer and chef proposed to his girlfriend Vanessa Black in Lake Placid, New York. The 37-year-old personal trainer, who was previously married to LeAnn Rimes from 2002 to 2010 and photographer Sarah Silver from 2011 to 2016, announced his engagement news on Sunday, March 18.

“Weather report: Icy conditions in the ADK,” wrote Sheremet in an Instagram post. “It’s going to be a a big year baby!” #VanDean #engaged.” In the sweet picture, Sheremet and the film director beam for the camera. Sheremet also treated his more than 52,000 followers to a close-up photo of Black’s stunning round sparkler from New York-based jeweler David Alan.

Wait, Dean is a personal trainer now? But his Instagram is full of food photos? I thought he was still involved with food somehow?? What a strange life he’s led – from dancer to “husband to a country music star” to handler/manager/songwriter to culinary student to chef something to… personal trainer? Sure. As for this engagement… there is something sweet about Dean, and I think he must be a truly nice guy, because women keep falling for him. This will be his third marriage and he’s not even 40! Crazy. Also: did he give Vanessa an aquamarine engagement ring? It really looks like a pale aquamarine to me, although it’s possibly a blue diamond (but a blue diamond that size would be pretty expensive). It’s a pretty ring, for sure, but the blue tint is throwing me off.

    I want to like Nico Tortorella and his partner but they just seem…exhausting. As for Dean, on to marriage number 3. Well, good luck to them I guess.

    • jess1632 says:

      I thought nico and his partner were in an open relationship…I was blindsided from that marriage. I really thought she was his bff and that he was gay or bi

    • manda says:

      I don’t know why, but I love this comment. It just made me laugh out loud. I am googling Nico now, because I have no idea

      Embarrassed to say I totally recognized the name dean sheremet, and I never followed his story. He does look a bit different too. It’s weird what stays if your head and what goes

    • halah01 says:

      Same! I even tried to listen to his podcast but it was just…extra.

  2. Snazzy says:

    Maybe he’s the male equivalent of JLo, he loves being in love 🙂

  3. Roe says:

    He got married young I think.

    Hasn’t Kim k been engaged three times and married three times too?

    • minx says:

      Kate Winslet, too.

    • Nancy says:

      I was thinking the same thing, She and I think Angelina were both on their third marriage at that age. Hurray for Hollywood. Everybody’s entitled to a second chance these days, but when you go on to three or more, it gets weird. Marriage isn’t for everyone.

      • raptor says:

        Or third time’s a charm? 🤷‍♀️

        Both of my parents were married three times, and their third marriages have worked out well for each of them.

      • Nancy says:

        There are always exceptions. Zsa Zsa Gabor….lol, I have to stop, it’s too early!

      • Christin says:

        Liz Taylor was just getting started with her third marriage (M. Todd). I have wondered how long that marriage would have lasted, had he lived.

  4. Maria F. says:

    he seems like a nice guy and his relationships have been fairly long.

    I suppose the fact that the jewelry store was mentioned in the media lead to a reduced price for the ring.

    • Runcmc says:

      When you put it that way it seems so reasonable. I’ve had three long-term relationships in my 20s and now early 30s, too. I don’t get the need to marry (so quickly I mean), but to each their own! Putting it in the context of relationships makes it more reasonable.

      • Nancy says:

        A lot of people have many relationships that don’t lead to marriage. There are some that like to be married…..Ross Geller comes to mind……lol

  5. Jane Boyer says:

    I hope this works out for him.

  6. Jinx says:

    Okay Ross Gellar.

    • Nancy says:

      I said the same thing above…lol….poor Ross was always the divorced guy. But when you think about it, Carol was his only real wife. Susan and Rachel didn’t count. If only life were as easy as twenty plus year old sitcoms. Ha!

      • Gutterflower says:

        Emily. Susan was Carol’s wife.

      • Nancy says:

        And right you are Gutterflower!!! Susan was an interesting character though, she had Ross’ number. Emily was awful and Carol was happy…..after she dumped Ross and married Susan that is!

    • lucy2 says:

      LOL, when I saw it, all I heard was Ross going “Three divorces! Three divorces!”

      Hopefully this one works out for Dean.

  7. Babs says:

    I’d love that kind of life. Well, maybe not the “married to LeAnn” part, but I’d like to do many totally unrelated jobs.

    • Mira Belle says:

      3 jobs is admirable to me. Being a professional dancer, a chef and personal trainer are very different but all require discipline and hard word. I can respect him for that. Compare him to K-Fed and get back to me. Or…not 😉

  8. Tess says:

    He married really young the first time, like 19 I think? I agree he seems nice, but too many red flags now. Like slow down Ross, you don’t need to marry everyone!

    • Christin says:

      That is one thing he seems to have in common with his first ex. Since they were teenagers, neither seems to have spent any significant time single. It’s been an engagement/marriage cycle since they were 18 or so.

  9. Wren says:

    After the whole Dean/LeAnn divorce thing after her affair and the ridiculous messiness with the ex’s that followed (which I found oddly fascinating), Dean did an in depth interview where he talked about his relationship with LeAnn and his life at the time. Some people saw it as tacky and gauche, and of course LeAnn was not pleased, but I really enjoyed it. He sounded like a genuinely nice person who essentially got thrown in the deep end, both in his marriage and career, at an extremely young age. He spoke with genuine emotion, everything he said was so relatable and…real. That interview did more to humanize LeAnn than anything she’s ever done. He described her as a whole person, and it was like seeing a side of her never presented in the media, neither by she herself nor the tabloid stories. I actually felt a bit sorry for her reading his words about her.

    Anyway, before that piece I had no real opinion of him, but after reading it I really liked him. He strikes me as a person who has a lot to give their partner, and wants to give it, so it makes sense that he’d be very happy getting married, even when from an outsider’s perspective it seems a little hasty and unnecessary.

  10. shara says:

    this is embarrassing but i was on bumble about 6 months ago and would always see him on there- for some reason i found his profile cringeworthy i think because it seemed like he was riding high on his pseudo-celebrity status. anyway, he was always a swift left swipe for me!

  11. Jess says:

    He’s really good looking and gets better with age, I don’t get why LeAnn went for Eddie over this guy. He’s faithful and works hard, plus he hid her crazy from the media. Eddie has been so bad for her, she’s gone downhill big time, looks and career wise.

    Good luck to Dean though, hopefully this one sticks!

  12. cookies says:

    when he was with leann everyone thought he was gay. we don’t think that anymore? i still think he might be

    • BJ says:

      I actually thought it was going to say he was engaged to a guy.

    • minx says:

      He still sort of pings for me…maybe he’s bi or just likes marrying women and still doing his thing. Maybe the women don’t care.

      • joanne says:

        or maybe he knows more about his sexuality than any of you. why should we believe women (as we should) but you won’t take a man’s word about his own orientation.

      • minx says:

        That’s what we do here, toss speculation about celebrities around.

  13. Patty says:

    Me thinks he just likes being married, doesn’t know how to / doesn’t want to be alone, and he probably gets engaged really quickly – honeymoon stage. Hopefully the third time is the charm for him!

  14. Ms says:

    Dean said himself he is a bit codependent. I worry about that. Good luck to him. He seems like a good guy (though I admit to cackling over his “cheater donuts” recipe, it was SO passive aggressive).

  15. elviechina says:

    Is no one going to mention the weird hand on the elbow pose? Awkward!

  16. Penelope says:

    Dean’s looking hot!

  17. Nicole Savannah, GA says:

    Before the cookbook was released I thought he said it was influenced on his personal training?

  18. PJ says:

    Dean seems sweet and harmless enough-and Lord knows one must require the patience of a saint to be married to Leann-but he feels like the male equivalent of Kaley Cuoco to me: well-intentioned, harmless & bland but addicted to serial monogamy and marriage.

    I wish him the best and hope this one sticks.
