Eddie Cibrian’s costar Rachel Bilson told him to stop flirting with female coworkers?

Keanu Reeves and Mark Dacascos square-off for JOHN WICK 3 on a crowded busy Grand Central Station

Eddie Cibrian got a job last year: a lead role in an ABC show called Take Two, where he plays a private investigator who partners up with a former actress played by Rachel Bilson. It’s from the creators of Castle, so it’s just the same formula, only with the genders reversed, I guess. Castle played off the two leads’ chemistry with each other and it worked for years. But if Eddie and Rachel have chemistry together, I suspect that LeAnn Rimes will do her best to sabotage it. I already believe LeAnn has been social-media stalking Rachel and trying to Single White Female her, because that’s LeAnn’s M.O. But what about Rachel? Hopefully, she has too much sense to even give Eddie a second glance. Which makes this Star Mag story very interesting:

Rachel Bilson read Eddie Cibrian his Miranda rights on the set of their new cop drama, ‘Take Two’. According to a tipster, Bilson had to remind her married costar that anything he says can and will be used against him after he began flirting up a storm with the female cast and crew.

“Eddie is always complimenting the women on set, and Rachel wasn’t afraid to call him out on it,” snickers a source. “Eddie insisted that he was just trying to be nice, but Rachel shot back that she hopes he’s this attentive to his wife.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Narrator’s voice: “He was not this attentive to his wife.”

But seriously, that’s one way to handle it when your married costar is openly hitting on female coworkers. Eddie’s well-earned reputation is no secret: literally everyone knows that he’s squirrelly and he loves to get some on the side. When a man marries his mistress, there’s a vacancy in his life. And Eddie has filled that vacancy with anyone who says yes. So, would you? If Eddie was hitting on you, would you go for it? Hell, you might end up getting a part on Vanderpump Rules. Or something.

    Rachel Bilson is so pretty

    And nope, I would not. He is gross.

  2. mia girl says:

    That poster looks like a joke.
    The kind of thing you see in a movie making fun of bad tv shows.

    • Nikita says:

      Yes! It’s such a cheesy poster.

      And my vote is for no, not with current Eddie. Now back in his Third Watch days…that’s a different story. That was his peak.

      • Kata says:

        He was sleezy even then. Now Bosco on the other hand… He was written and played with such depth it was amazing. Whatever happened to Jason Wiles?

        Third Watch was one of the best, if not the best cop/paramedic/fireman shows.

    • Spargel says:

      Um, well, that’s most network tv, after all.

  3. Ocjulia says:

    I love this story SO MUCH. Cue the LeAnn defenders in 5…4….3….

  4. Christin says:

    Pre-emptive strike, if this little comment is true. Let him know you’re on to his on-set “charms”.

    Hard to believe he got a role on a Castle-like show. Has he had any TV series in recent years that made it past a few episodes (other than the Cleveland show with Betty White)?

    • detritus says:

      Yup. Remember there are rumours Hayden Christensen was cheating which is why Bilson left. She’s not going to have time for that behaviour

  5. RBC says:

    I had to look up Eddie’s age. He will be 45 years old on June 16th.
    Is he supposed to look so much older for this tv series or is he just looking rough for his age?

    • Snowflake says:

      Nah, this is how he always looks. Rough for his age. Looks like he doesn’t believe in sunscreen, lol.

  6. Sparkly says:

    I might hit that with a baseball bat, but that’s definitely all.

  7. Jane says:

    Eddie the Douche gives me the creeps and I do not find him attractive at all. He loves being a “player” and believes that when he walks in the room all women fall head over heals in lust over him.

    When you look at things in perspective, Leann goes out of her way to look all “sexayyy” for her ” love”. In the end she comes off silly, derpy and cringe-worthy, hence the reason why he looks elsewhere for some action.

    He simply does not look at Leann the way he looks at his co-stars which is always a little intriguing. It was same with his last co-star Jaina Lee Ortiz.

  8. Cupcake says:

    Isn’t that how he met LeAnn? Onset flirting? Kind of his MO. How you get ‘em, is how you lose ‘em!

    Oh and… a hard no.

    • Christin says:

      Waitresses, on-set romances…And coming soon, could be flirting with sons’ HS/college girl friends.

      She got a real prize, eh? Rachel hopefully has enough sense to keep things at arms’ length.

    • Beth says:

      Yeah, and LeAnn is pretty dumb if she thinks he’ll never do it again.
      Ugh. Hell no, I’d never give him chance. Pass

    • Kosmos says:

      A very very hard NO

  9. Stephanie says:

    Hard pass!

  10. EMc says:

    Ugh.

    I’m here for Rachel Bilson. I love her.

  11. Xtina says:

    Rachel ended her decade long partnership with Hayden Christenson after she found inappropriate texts between him and Emma Roberts after they worked together, so I could see her having zero tolerance for shady on-set behavior. Bravo if she did call it out.

    It’s got to be exhausting for LeAnn to flip out every time her husband gets a job. After awhile it’s hard to ignore reality. Maybe you weren’t special and the cheater is just a cheater.

  12. Kristen says:

    I don’t understand why Rachel Bilson isn’t a bigger star. She’s gorgeous and talented.

    • Carrie1 says:

      Same. She’s fun to watch. I liked her show Hart of Dixie.

      This is smart move by Rachel. It will keep Leanne off her back hopefully. Leanne may have to finally face the problem is her man and her own behaviour.

    • GreenQueen says:

      Seriously, I’m obsessed with her as a person and actress. I am actually excited about this show because I miss seeing her!! She’s wholesome, she builds other women up, we need more celebrity role models like that!

      Way to call him on it girl, this is the kind of behavior I expect of other women when men act inappropriately. It pisses me off to no end when people are all “don’t blame it on the other woman, it’s the man’s fault” well you can act like Rachel, you can turn a blind eye or you can be a dumb s***. I wish more women had the character to act like Rachel.

  13. Spikey says:

    Yuck.

  14. DP says:

    How did he get this role?
    Rachel is waaaaaay too good for him and I could totally see her making that comment!

  15. Teebee says:

    I always wonder how comfy the bed that LeAnn made is to sleep on for all these years. I have no love for her, but to never have a moments peace, because of her paranoia over her husband’s cheating past, and her sensitivity to critique. It’s gotta be hell.

    Well. I tell ya, I sleep great. And karma’s a bitch.

    • Jane says:

      THIS! ^

    • Valerie Purvis says:

      Does she ever sleep?
      She’s always on SM looking for remedies for the soul thru self help books, gurus and various motivational speakers.
      She’s always looking for answers.
      She’s almost 40.
      Leann should have life figured out by now.
      It’s not that hard.
      Just try to treat people the way you would want to be treated.

  16. Veronica S. says:

    Well, that, and it puts the female cast members in the uncomfortable position of having to respond to his flirting in a way that doesn’t make them seem “bitchy” or “unfriendly.” A lot of men take advantage of women being socialized to be “nice” even in situations where they’re uncomfortably simply because there’s repercussions for behaving otherwise.

    I still can’t believe Christensen f*cked that up. She is aging magnificently.

  17. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Agree. Rachel is too good for him. Maybe she needs the $$. Also, I read the same re Hayden & inappropriate texts to someone. Glad she read Eddie the riot act. LeAnn should send Rachel flowers.

    Wait though. Didn’t Cibrian used to be handsome? He looks hollow-faced and meh. Bilson & he don’t look like they’d have any chemistry. I am noticing from the silly poster that Rachel & Stanna ? from Castle have a bit of resemblance.

    • Christin says:

      Rachel looks like his daughter. She looks younger than her age, while her co-star does not.

      • AnotherDirtyMartini says:

        Yes, this!! Father-daughter. Ugh, they need to kill him off STAT & get her a better co-star.

    • Evie says:

      She doesn’t need the $$$ she comes from a super wealthy family. Her dad is a big Hollywood producer or something similar

  18. Elisabeth says:

    ugh not even with a rented one…he’s so unbelievably gross.

  19. Deanne says:

    That would be a hard no. He’s so disgusting that I have no problem believing this to be true. A cheating leopard doesn’t change his spots. LeAnn’s been a stage 5 clinger since this relationship started and she’s really ramped up the crazy over the last while. She tries so damn hard with the LovE on MY MAN crap. If she hadn’t been such a feckless c-word for so long, I’d feel sorry for her.

    • Valerie Purvis says:

      Yes
      She went in eyes open stopping at nothing to get him.
      She humiliated her husband,stalked Brandi and ignored the stories about his legendary cheating ways.
      He was willing to say unemployed even though he had financial obligation to his sons and Brandi.
      Ed is a hit and run.
      You enjoy him in bed then walk away.
      To complete give up your entire life for a cheater is reckless and self destructive.

      • Snowflake says:

        ^^^Exactly, you enjoy him in bed, then walk away! But Leanne has always been ruled by her vagina. Not slut shaming, just saying she’s easily dick whipped. You know, instead of ph.ussy whipped.

  20. Izzy says:

    Gross. The only way I would hit that is with a two-by-four. Or an electrified cattleprod.

  21. brutalethyl says:

    I have a mental image of Brandy getting up, getting her coffee and settling in to read Celebitchy when she comes across this article. I can see her snickering and hitting the bong in between sips of coffee, thanking her lucky starts that Leann wanted that piece of trash and giving her a way out of that marriage.

  22. Elva says:

    I’d hit it and then make him treat me to a spa week, or I’d tell the tabloids and get the money for that spa week.

    I really need a spa week, y’all.

  23. tealily says:

    You’d have to be nuts to get involved with Eddie at this point. You know LeAnn’s gonna drag you into some bad sh*t on social media, if nothing else. Rachel Bilson is not that girl.

  24. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    They should have us Celebitches as a focus group for the show. We would tell them the EXACT problems!

    I was part of focus group for one movie called Ravenous years ago. It starred Guy Pearce who I really like. Mind you, it was a cheapie brief group. They only showed clips. I told them they couldn’t pay me to see that movie.

    Then the hubs & I got a random invite to focus group (which they chose by seeing who knew the name of the movie BEFORE it rolled 😂). The movie was Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I loved it! At the end, everyone left except us few nerds that could recite the exact title prior to the viewing. So, they kept us hanging in the front rows of the theatre and ushered in the movie execs behind us. Sidenote: the movie “execs” were all men, and all dressed way down, like slobs, actually. Interesting…

    Then we had a discussion led by one of the prominent women, perhaps a producer?, of the movie. I liked her. It was really an interesting, fun occasion. And we were just chosen because we happened to give the man with a clipboard hanging outside the theatre 30 seconds of our time. Living close to a big city helps. Highly recommend trying it out. The only thing surprising was no compensation for either. I belong to AMC something something (forgot name) and they’ve given me merchandise, $100 gift card & several invitations to premieres – one was that limited series with Tom Hiddleston & I love him…what’s his name…HUGH LAURIE! That’s a group worth joining, FYI.

    Now, regarding the other post about cutting out Damon’s cameo from Ocean’s Eight, WE could have all advised them re Damon without a screening. So disappointed in him. He really showed his ass this past year or two. Grrrr

  25. Harryg says:

    He’s going to be one of those creepy old guys.

    • Jane says:

      He already is. Leann has aged him. He’s in his mid-forties and looks mid to later fifties.

  26. puravidacostarica says:

    Ewww, no. Just the thought of him having sex with Falcor would be enough to turn my stomach. That, combined with his other peen issues, makes that a definite “no way”.

  27. RspbryChelly says:

    When he was Sunset Beach, I woulda woulda woulda woulda woulda but since & now…not even a little bit

  28. Renee says:

    Stacie? Speak up girl

  29. Valerie Purvis says:

    Leann has barely left his side. That never stood Ed.
    Ed is (allegedly) already
    seeing an assistant.
    Leann has a gig the other night.
    She stayed w Ed until the very last minute, flow to NY, then took the Red Eye back to Ed the second the concert was over.
    She (allegedly) cancelled 4 concerts since March.
    One was last minute for a Down Syndrome Foundation Jamie Foxx sister is involved with.

    • Christin says:

      The missing concerts and zooming back and forth sounds like 5 or 6 years ago, when I first started reading these stories. And, her tour schedule made little of any geographic/economic sense. It was a constant zigzag.

  30. Valerie Purvis says:

    Leann has no one but herself to blame.
    What did she expect when a married man w two babies and a wife at home was willing to run around w her?
    Spoiler Alert:
    That means he should never be trusted.

    For Leann that meant he was marriage material.

    Now her ex is about to have a baby, Leann (allegedly) is on Instagram liking everything involving children.
    So glad Dean moved to NY to escape the madness.
    Now Leann is struggling to stay relevant.

  31. Valerie Purvis says:

    Do you know Leann has a record label named Everle Records?
    Leann managed to keep her exit from RCA a secret.
    Unfortunately the gentleman who signed her left after CD was released two years ago.
    She’s released her re imagined music on her label.
    No word on if it’s successful or not.

  32. Valerie Purvis says:

    Leann Rimes manager Darrell Brown no longer has a Twitter Authentication symbol.

    What does that mean?

    People on Twitter are discussing it.
    I thought you keep that thing for life.

  33. why? says:

    Leann is definitely stalking Rachel’s IG account, she commented on Rachel’s Mother’s Day post and will like many of the posts that Rachel makes. Leann had one of her fans(the one who called the teacher for Leann and the one who Leann was always having playdates with Brandi’s kids with) commenting on 2 videos that Rachel posted of Eddie doing the altoid challenge, arguing that Eddie loves Leann and that he isn’t cheating on Leann. There was even speculation that Kiki and Leann were commenting on Rachel’s IG account using the names delores and doreen respectively. The doreen character even posted an article about how Leann had visited Eddie on the set of Take Two.

    It is weird how after getting Eddie out of their lives, Brandi and Scheana are doing well. Since Eddie has been with Leann her career has tanked.

  34. BaBaDook says:

    You lose ‘em how you get ‘em ladies. We need to stop giving asshats like this what they want. Ugh.

  35. Deanne says:

    There are couples who get together through an affair and they are faithful to each other. It’s a messy beginning, but it does happen. Eddie Cibrian is a serial cheater, who has cheated on every woman he’s ever dated, his fiancé, his pregnant wife etc. He hasn’t suddenly changed. LeAnn is nothing special. He’s definitely cheated on her regardless of her attempts at peen patrol. She tries REALLY hard to give the impression that they are soulmates and the greatest love story every told, but her years of cancelling shows to follow him around and her stage five clinger behaviour. tells another story. Of course Eddie flirts on set. It probably comes as naturally to him as breathing.

  36. Kim says:

    It doesn’t matter how charming and attractive a person is. If they’re of such low character that they would cheat on their spouse, they become instantly ugly to me. That being said, as a married person as well, there was once a friend who tried to flirt with me despite knowing I am married. He instantly became repulsive as well. I’m glad my brain works this way.

  37. nikki says:

    Good for Ms. Bilson! More men need to be called out publicly for their creepy non-compliments.

  38. Mae says:

    Knock, knock…who is it???
    Karma…
    Karma who…
    Karma bit you in the butt!
    LeAnn this is what happens in life.
    You were not more special than his wife and two boys.
    You did not add to their lives you broke up a family unit.
    Eddie will not stop he love women and you will never be enough!

  39. Anare says:

    To answer the question er, no. No I would not hit that, not even a one off with him. He doesn’t strike me as remotely interesting and who wants to chance a bunny boiling in the pot on your stove complements of the crazy wifey. 😬

  40. Parigo says:

    Urgh, I feel sorry for Rachel. She deserves better than this. First she has to work with that skeeve and now have his skeevy wife stalking her.

  41. Sara says:

    Good on Rachel!
