LeAnn Rimes Regrets Handling Of Eddie Cibrian Affair

LeAnn Rimes is still trying to do damage control. She did an E! special with Giuliana Rancic and opened up about her relationship with Eddie Cibrian. LeAnn and Eddie first became involved while they were both still married to other people. They met while filming a Lifetime movie.

“I call it insanity! Absolute insanity. But nothing ever happened between us except for on camera, you know, during the film . . . Absolutely nothing. I had no idea what life was throwing me and I had no idea how to handle it. . . But all I knew was I could not . . . we couldn’t stop connecting in some way. And it was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through in my life.”

LeAnn shares how she coped when news broke of their extramarital affair.

“I think I became numb. Then I told everyone I should have told and then I curled up in a ball on the couch and then I didn’t move. And I didn’t move for a while. It’s that feeling of your heart falling to the ground. Eddie reacted the way that I reacted too, but he reacted in his own way and I allowed him to do that. Because he had so much more to deal with than I did — I had a marriage, he had a marriage and children. I can’t even fathom that.

“I wish I handled it differently because I wish it could’ve been better for me, for Brandi, for Dean, for Eddie and for everyone else. I know in this situation it’s gonna take some time, all I wish is that everyone that was hurt, that we hurt, that I hurt, can be happy.”

But don’t call LeAnn a “home wrecker”!

“I’m like, can someone come up with anything like more, I don’t know, original?” she joked, but her laughter quickly turned to tears. “Because at the end of the day, I never set and been held by so many . . . like by my family . . . my friends, my new friends, this is what life’s about. Through all the hard stuff, there comes so much beauty on the other side if you just let it happen.”

I think the problem LeAnn is encountering is that she seems very apologetic during interviews but then get her on twitter or something and she seems completely unapologetic. Something tells me this is a young woman who’s in WAY over her head. It’s really sad.

    ENOUGH ALREADY!! Hasn’t it been at least THREE years?since this 1st happened and exploded in the media? The expiration date on this subject was up 2 years ago easy…
    WHY keep harping on and talking about this? It was horrific enough living thru and with it in the first place…

    sure, it would have been wiser if they both had at least separated or divorced before becoming involved together, but when you get hit by that thunderbolt resistance is almost futile.

    They messed up. They aren’t the 1st nor will be the LAST, why ALL of them have to keep talking about this is beyond me other than they must want attention even if it is destrutive useless attention. Really sad and pitiful they can’t STFU about this…. MOVE ON and let it go and live your lives NOW NOT THEN for gods sake…..

    Not really. When people watch Leann’s interviews they always walk away with the same reaction. That Leann is faking and unstable. Check out the comments from twitter yesterday. No one thought she came off apologetic, especially when this was the same interview she gave last year to Robin Roberts. The only people who actually buy into Leann’s act are those people she pays.

    Leann keeps talking about it because Eddie is cheating. She can’t make him stop cheating, so she does the next “best” thing, give interviews where she manipulates things to get the end result. I honestly think that some big story about Eddie’s affairs must be coming out soon.
