**Scheana Marie is the girl closer to the camera**
About a month ago (exactly, actually), Life & Style reported that Eddie Cibrian was cheating on his mistress-turned-girlfriend LeAnn Rimes with his other, original mistress Scheana Marie Jancon. Eddie got on his high horse and tried to defend himself, and even filed a lawsuit against Life & Style, which is probably still sitting around somewhere. Many thought that he was just doing that because LeAnn wanted him too – she’s okay with people thinking she’s a home wrecker, but she doesn’t want people to think she’s not enough for Eddie.
Anyway, initially, when the story of LeAnn and Eddie broke, Scheana’s “friend” gave a tell-all story to a tabloid, detailing her year-plus-long affair with Eddie. Scheana also dated John Mayer for a time, so yeah… starf-cker. But even though her words are riddled with a kind of ironic self-pity, I do tend to believe Scheana. So I take her recent interview with Access Hollywood as the gospel. Scheana claims that she and Eddie aren’t currently engaged in an affair, but that Eddie is a major piece of work when it comes to lying and cheating:
Infidelity is all the rage in the news cycle this week, so it’s only fitting that actor Eddie Cibrian is facing his second affair scandal of the year. Cibrian, who split from his wife earlier this year after a fling with singer LeAann Rimes became public — allegedly betrayed his wife another time, and the woman making the new claims has photos of her and Cibrian enjoying some beach time and tells Access Hollywood that Cibrian could talk his way out of anything.
Scheana Marie sat down with Access Hollywood to talk about her trysts with Cibrian, which she says began in 2006. According to Marie, Cibrian — who was still with his wife Brandi Glanville — “would tell me and he would tell Brandi anything we wanted to hear.” She even gave Access Hollywood photos of the two together:
Marie says she had no idea Cibrian was even married until her mother read about a new baby between him and his wife in the newspaper.
“It went on for about six months and then [my] mom calls me one day and she’s like, ‘So that guy Eddie that you’ve been hanging out with… I just picked up the morning [paper] and it says that him and his wife Brandi of like, I don’t know five years at the time, are expecting their second child,'” Marie said.
She claims their relationship ended at that point, but only for a few months — as Cibrian told her that he and Brandi had split.
“I just wanted to believe what he was saying … I was just kind of like, ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell.’ Whatever, let’s have a great summer. When you’re with me, you’re with me. When you’re not, we’ll just do our own thing,” Marie says.
Marie says that their affairs were on-and-off for a while, with Cibrian always winding up back with his wife. It was later on that she heard about his romantic escapades with Rimes.
“In March, when the whole video thing of them at dinner came out. I’m like, ‘Seriously?’ Like I was just with you two weeks ago, and I mean you can’t deny pictures, you can’t deny a video,” Marie tells Access Hollywood.
Though she claims that she hasn’t seen Cibrian in months, Marie said she was well aware of the type of relationship they had. “He cheated with me -– he would cheat on me.”
Damn, I knew the Life & Style report was too good to be true! Oddly enough, I do believe Scheana. I don’t think she’s having an affair with Eddie currently. I think if she was, she would admit it and sell her story to the highest bidder. That isn’t to say that I don’t think Eddie is cheating or will cheat on LeAnn – he is and he will. This man has some kind of compulsive zipper problem.
