LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian - Who Is The Bigger Homewrecker?


Last night I was shocked. Not that LeAnn Rimes was having an affair. If you read the blind items you will see that she and her husband have been frequent subjects. I was actually shocked that US Weekly made someone look bad. They never do that. It is an article of faith that celebrities can do no wrong or you don't get access. I guess the figured it was ok to burn the LeAnn Rimes bridge.

Anyway, as I was reading the article last night I kept asking myself who the bigger cheat was. On the one side you have LeAnn who is 26, and has already been married for a bunch of years to a guy, who lets face it, has been a little confused as to which team he plays for and has caused some issues in their marriage. I don't think when you get married at 19 that your husband might enjoy looking at the groomsmen more than the bridesmaids.

On the other side we have Eddie Cibrian who I like to think of as a guy who has never really been able to escape his soap opera past and his limited acting abilities. Now he doesn't need to worry about jumping from job to job trying to find the great big role. He landed LeAnn who has more money than Eddie has ever seen. At home, Eddie has a wife of 8 years and two children, the youngest of which is not even two years old.

I want to blame the equally for this, but I am going to go ahead and blame Eddie more. He has kids, and LeAnn doesn't. Also, although LeAnn should know better, if you married young and have had to go what she has had to go through, then you can kind of understand that she just wanted something more. Sure, she should have thought about the fact Eddie was married and has two children, but Eddie is the guy almost 40 and so he should have been thinking about his family and not about being the next Kevin Federline or Danny Moder or Mr. Tori Spelling.

i have always disliked leeann rimes. she has always played "holier than thou". a couple years ago she was trying to get publicity for herself saying she was rare in hollywood bc she hadn't been in rehab. dogging others to make yourself look better is so annoying.

Mooshki said...

I'm pissed at both of them for getting caught. It looks like it was just an on-set romance, and if they'd been discreet, his wife and kids might not have been hurt. (I know many people would hotly debate this point, but I'm in the "what you don't know can't hurt you" club.)

Sporky said...

I don't know much about LeeAnn Rimes except for that one song she sang eons ago, "blooo-ooo-ooooo" ...oh and that her husband's a big ol' 'mo. Seems like it won't bother him too much.

Bad Fish said...

I'm a little in the "what you don't know can't hurt you" club myself (not completely, but I can't say that I myself could resist every temptation Hollywood has to offer). If you're gonna do it, at least don't humiliate the other person.

Goodgrief said...

I do blame him more, since he is the one with the kids and would have more to lose. In a way it sounds like the Tori/Dean affair, except Tori probably wasn't sexually frustrated like LeAnn most likely was. Eddie has no excuse.

Kelli said...

you know, it's funny, I was watching a Bon Jovi Unplugged the other night, and LeeAnn did a duet with JBJ..it was weird, he kept touching her, or holding her hand and singing into her eyes, that I remember watching them & thinking that THEY kind of looked like they were having an affair..he looked like he was enamored by her. He certainly didn't look like that when he sang with Jennifer Nettles.
She's probably been having affairs on her husband for years.

Lisa said...

If LeAnn doesn't want to be married, then she needs to divorce Whatshisname. I've never heard of Eddie, but I hope his wife takes everything and tosses his cheating ass out the door. LeAnn can help him pay alimony as penance for idiocy.

Can't say I blame her. Eddie's pretty damn cute.

Theresa said...

Ironic that he played a cheating husband on "Ugly Betty" recently.

kanonymous said...

"(I know many people would hotly debate this point, but I'm in the "what you don't know can't hurt you" club.)"

What you don't know CAN hurt you. It's called herpes, HIV, syphilus, crabs, cervical cancer, etc.

kanonymous said...

I think from the blinds that are supposedly about Rimes and her husband, they are in an open relationship. If her husband has a boyfriend, then I'm sure she's allowed to sleep with other men. That doesn't excuse her from sleeping with a married man with children, however. While Cibrian is more to blame, Rimes isn't exactly innocent in this either. Yeah, I understand frustration with a bisexual spouse, but she couldn't have found a single guy to get some from.

kanonymous: Condoms

Mooshki said...

kanonymous, I was tacitly including safe sex as part of being "discreet." I guess it does need to be spelled out though, because people are dumb.

Mooshki said...

Oops, I just realized that comment could be interpreted as saying you're dumb, I meant that people who cheat without condoms are dumb!!! :)

Pookie said...

i just can't picture these 2 together. he's so unbelievably hot and she's a little on the plain jane side. amazing talent, but sorta blah, looks-wise. what a couple of douches, tho. i thought she just accepted her situation of having married way too young to a confused guy and just dealt w/ it.

guess not.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I'm more interested in what those old BI's are.

"kanonymous, I was tacitly including safe sex as part of being "discreet." I guess it does need to be spelled out though, because people are dumb."

Right, but "safe sex" doesn't protect you from everything, expecially herpes. If my spouse was cheating on me, I would want to know so that I could make my own decision as to whether or not to risk sleeping with my spouse.

And because I didn't take "discreet" to mean "safe" in no way means I'm dumb. They have very different meanings and discreet sex is not neccesarily safe sex.

kanonymous said...

It seems like Enty is trying to portray LeAnn as this very young girl and Ciprian as this old guy ("almost 40") who should know better. In reality, he is 35, only 9 years older than Rimes.

shazzzba said...

YUP...I THINK IT WAS THOSE DIMPLES...SHE NEVER HAD A CHANCE...

Mooshki said...

Harriet, here are some good possibilities:

#2 here

#2 here

#2/3 here

Mooshki said...

"And because I didn't take "discreet" to mean "safe" in no way means I'm dumb."

Yes, I posted that that wasn't what I meant. :)

non-denial from leann's website:

"03.18.2009
A MESSAGE FROM LEANN...

This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support.

I would like to assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white.

Have faith,
Le"


*sigh* in all fairness to her, it IS tough to resist those hot cubans.

jax said...

damn! i met Eddie in Vancouver a few times years ago before he was married and he was a sweetheart.

sorry my laides, i do not subscribe to the "What you don't know won't hurt you.."
It's a marriage. And when i get married I expect trust and honesty not fucking anything. i don't want to wake up one day after 20 years of marriage and have my husband tell me he's been having it off with the my best friend,but didn't want to hurt me.

Lunch with your ex girlfreind? sure, i'm better off not knowing but fornication is where i draw the line! ;o)

TheAM said...

Im just glad Enty mentioned loser Danny Moder. Easy to pile on the Spelling debacle (which was abhorent), but Julia Roberts got a full pass at stealing an other woman's husband and even FLAUNTED it and shamed the woman publically. I still resent the Pretty Woman for that...always comes off fresh as a rose though

Mooshki said...

And here's what Eddie said:

"LeAnn and I are friends, we went to dinner, that's it. The most ridiculous thing is that people believe I would do something like this period … much less do it in a public place. The false accusations are obviously causing a rift at home, but me and my family will get through this together."

I don't know, that picture looks way more than friendly to me.

HookedOnCDAN said...

Bless you for those links, Mooshki! I'm sorta new-ish to the world of BI's, and I couldn't remember which ones might apply to them. I'm not sure your third link for #2/3 is them, though, because he's far from a "celebrity husband." But yes, the other two definitely sound like them. Sounds like she's of the "Stand By Your Man" variety, rather than the "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" variety. Too bad, there's so much more to life than a love/sexless marriage.

figgy said...

Why doesn't she divorce her husband? They can still be friends. Heck, gay ex-lovers make the best buddies, and I should know, :-)

Bad Fish said...

I didnt say that to mean that I applaud cheating or would be ok with that happening to me or go around cheating, myself. I just think there are many relationship issues that aren't so black and white.

Dschingis said...

that doesnt seem like a kiss. more like bending over and whispering something in the others ear.

fromwembley said...

Really aggravated with this blog post. How about taking a stand? Fooling around and making fools of other people's spouses and families is wrong damnit.

Rimes married too early? Then let her get a divorce first then fool around. I'm so mad because country music performers are a big influence on some people. Way too much fooling around by these people. And then reading blog posts and comments that justify it or excuse it that just burns me up. Rimes is just as trashy as Tanya Tucker used to be. What's next LeAnn gonna start doing cocaine?

Sylvia said...

I believe in a monogamous relationship. If you are the type to stray than don't get married. But if you do get married why stray it kind of defeats the purpose.

Sylvia said...

Also I blame both it doesn't matter if you have kids or not you still committed adultry.

LauraM said...

um, if she's not happy in the marriage, get divorced. I mean really. Sacrificing happiness to be with someone that is not into you? No love for herself, i guess. If she was in happy fulfilling relationship she wouldn't have done this. and as for him, no excuse really. God knows how many times he's been cheating on her. Don't know why he bothers staying married either....

Mooshki said...

Sorry, Wembley, I don't want to hear an ethics complaint from a nasty racist.

kimpim said...

ardleigh said...

To TheAM:
You should have heard Julia on GMA today. She was talking about her kids and her hubby and their great love. If I wasn't already sick with the flu that would have turned my stomach.

As for the what you don't know can't hurt you. I say if he plays behinde your back I don't think he's gonna be responsible enough to keep it covered.

Goodgrief said...

Let's not forget Brad and Angie.

Sylvia said...

I don't think highly of Julia never liked her. Everybody calls her Pretty Woman which I never considered her Pretty, big mouth and big nose. Also I read that a body double was use for some scenes in that movie.

Even though she is married with kids I will always think of her of the homewrecker that she is.

Mooshki said...

But Goodgrief, they didn't get together until after Brad left Jen! *Snort* LOL.

For those of you who don't like Julia Roberts, she was revealed as a cheater by Enty way back in 2006. The way they've been talking about each other in interviews recently, I wonder if it was Clive Owen.

kanonymous said...

"um, if she's not happy in the marriage, get divorced."

Just because someone cheats it doesn't mean they're in an unhappy marriage. It could be LeAnn's husband allows her to cheat. According to the blinds about them, LeAnn allows HIM to cheat.

ardleigh said...

Thanks Mooshki for the old blinds I really hope that's not Julia and Clive. If so I've lost all respect for him.

moxie said...

Sounds like LeAnn and her husband have an open marriage, but they're supposed to keep their affairs as hidden as possible. I am willing to bet Eddie and his wife don't have a similar understanding.

I hope everyone knows you can get STDs even if condoms are used 100% of the time. Being cheated on sucks, but catching an incurable STD because your partner cheated is infinitely worse. What you don't know CAN hurt you.

Goodgrief said...

Eddie has now released a statement saying the rumors are false. I wonder if he is upset with LeAnn for not denying it. Not that I don't believe it happened but usually you deny it even when it's true.

Jungle007 said...

Thanks for saying it first moxie. I agree that infidelity really sucks, and that disease isn't avoided simply by using condoms, nor is pregnancy.

I think it's clear that there are differing opinions about it, and i'm not going to start bashing people's opinions, but to state mine i feel that hearing "what you don't know wont hurt you" makes me cringe a little. :(

Because many people continue their affairs, get caught up in the new romance and either get caught eventually or decide to leave the wife/hubby for the affair. Then what u didn't know rips your heart out.

SnowCherries said...

You know, it's funny. I grew up with Dean in suburban Detroit and everyone so freaked out when he married LeAnn (obviously in a positive sense), but no one EVER thought he was gay. To this day, my brother, who was in his class, an was in his same Boy Scouts troup, refuses to believe that he plays for the other team. I constantly send my brother random articles about Dean, but he refuses to buy into it. I on the other hand am intrigued. I have pictures of the kid in my parents' living room, looking basically like he does now (except now he has better highlights) and with his little Boy Scouts cravat. It is just so interesting and I keep wishing something would come out to make his non-heteroness official so I could rub it in my brother's face that I was right. And to say that I'm so sad that he didn't come out beforehand and made a seemingly nice girl (at the time) fall in love with him enough to marry him.

stiffkittens said...

Sorry, Wembley, I don't want to hear an ethics complaint from a nasty racist.

I agree.

Why is the troll trying for logic and morality - it defeats the purpose...

stiffkittens said...

Mooshki - Julia is infamous for fucking all (or most of) her male co-stars.

B626 said...

Kids who marry young rarely make it.
Look up the numbers.
These two get to have it all go down in flames in public.
As for Eddie?
DOable!!!

Mooshki said...

Stiffkittens, I guess I didn't know that because I don't usually even bother to read gossip about her. :)

stiffkittens said...

Me either, usually.

It's something i've read about her and it stuck because i couldn't imagine her being the slutty type (she seems to me like the kind that would prefer to garden than have sex), nor can i picture Clooney etc having a go at her (though to be fair, he's delved into worser caverns ;))

wee said...

Trully, she's not denying it. But I feel bad about her because of Eddie's comment about this, denying it and all that.. She might be heart broken.

Danny Trejo

kimpim said...

Us ha s posted a video of them out for dinner. He will not be able to deny this to his wife. All horndoggy n a public place. Dumb asses.

carlasee said...

Mooshki, thanks very much for that link to the 2006 reveals! I had never read back that far. There were some really juicy BIs. Danke! :)
