While I was cruising through some of my go-to websites looking for news about black folks, I couldn’t help but to be sucked in by the sympathy seeking antics and non-stop drama of country singer LeAnn Rimes. If you know nothing about her current controversial relationship status, here’s a quick summary: Rimes was once married to her former background dancer, Dean Sheremet. On the other side of the table, actor Eddie Cibrian was at the same time married to Brandi Glanville (who can be seen dogging Cibrian on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills nowadays), the mother of his two children. When Rimes and Cibrian had to work together on the TV movie Northern Lights in 2009, there was a spark between the two, and they began an affair with one another that was discovered by Glanville and Sheremet, and the rest of the world, after Cibrian and Rimes were caught kissing on camera…when they weren’t shooting. In the end, the two left their partner for each other, and have seemed pretty happy (and sometimes lacking much remorse for their past cheating) ever since.
Well, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Rimes not only discussed the depression she went through after her affair was discovered and was heavily criticized (she says she wondered if she could ever go through with suicide at that time, but thankfully she realized that she couldn’t), and admitted that she’s afraid that how she got her man Eddie is how she could lose him–by cheating. When asked if she feared that he might step out on her, according to The Daily Mail, she admits that she has worried about it before. “I would be ignorant to say, and everyone else would think I am a liar if I didn’t say yes, and I have at times.”
Afterwards, she also put out there that though she’s had her worries, so has Eddie: “Speaking for him, I would actually say that’s creeped into his [mind].” But all in all, the singer says that they’ve gone out of their way to ensure each other that they deeply care about one another, so she can only hope that the possible pain they could cause the other would stop them dead in their tracks. “I think we’ve been very honest and open with that to each other and our conversations about it have only made me understand how much he actually cares, as much as I do, about being faithful to each other.”
