The Mother Load of Awkward

Let me start out this post by saying, I DO NOT condone cheating. Any kind. Ever. 


I have never talked about this before. I remained silent the entire time it hit the news. But now, I want to talk about it. 
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian.
They met while making a television movie for the Lifetime network. Hmm.... yeah. I haven't seen the movie so I can't judge that one. Now, while they met working on the film they were both married to other people. LeAnn had been married for a few years and Eddie had been married with children for a few years as well. 


So when it hit the news that LeAnn and Eddie had been having an affair and were divorcing their spouses so they could be together it became HOLY paparazzi overload! And I instantly thought, wow what a home wrecker. He had a family. He had kids. But it takes two to tango. I didn't know anything about their personal and private lives. I didn't know who his spouse was until she started filming for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Brandy Glanville. She seems like a real peach (note the sarcasm). 


So when the paparazzi had it going in overload which btw they still do. I started to feel the awkwardness for both parties in the photos. Evidence #1....
This was at one Eddie's kids soccer games. Holy mother of awkward. I mean their literally sitting a few feet from each other. It's been noted that they never interact and they never speak. Ya think?!? But... I kinda feel for both of them after seeing this photo. 

I've been in those awkward settings. I've been to the events where I've been within feet of ex's and it's never just a breezy day. And frankly, if I was LeAnn, I would be a little scared because Brandy can get a little crazy on RHOBH. Now, while I do not condone cheating I kinda feel for LeAnn because I mean she is obviously trying to be a good step mom and supporting the kids in their endeavors but at the same time she shouldn't have got involved with someone who was very much married. 


Anyways, I feel that photo and situation is one major awkward moment. Thoughts?

Thoughts from me, there is never an excuse to get involved with a married person. If you are unhappy where you are, do something about it without leaving a lifetime of devestation in your wake. Just my 2 cents:)

Jennifer B said...

I'd attack her if I were Brandi haha.

Krystal said...

I totally felt for Leeann! LOL Wasn't her hubby closested? Or did I believe the gossip magazines a little too much? Circumstances should have been different but Eddie's ex is a whack job. haha

Bethanne said...

There's nothing sacred about marriage in the entertainment industry. :( This is sad. And definitely awkward. yikes. You never know though, when Cibrian cheats on Rimes, maybe they'll be the best of friends?! :D

Erica said...

LeAnn is a piece of shit. She uses those kids and rubs her relationship in that Brandi woman's face. She calls herself a "bonus mom" and from someone who had a step mother that is very disrespectful. She's a skank, liar, anorexic who needs to learn how to open her eyes.I will never ever feel sorry for the lowdown dirty shit she does. She is just as mean as Brandi though I wouldn't know how she acts on that show since I don't condone reality tv.

Whether it was just a boyfriend/girlfriend situation or a husband/wife one, it is never easy to be around the person you're seeing's ex. I actually am friends with a few exes but I know it's a fine line between being friends with them and asking my significant other to be friends with them.

I think the worst part in this situation is knowing that LeAnn was "the other woman." How does anyone get over that?

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

I am not even kind of a Leann fan. Despite that, if you're unhappy in your relationship or feel like there is someone else you would rather be with, get out of your relationship first. There is no need or excuse to be so disrespectful to the one you are with.

Check out my blog, I'm hosting a GIVEAWAY!!!

I agree, I love RHOBH but seriously she sounds like a piece of work, while I still can't stand any of them b/c I believe vows are taken and should be kept regardless of your personal desires. I have always hated Le Anne Rimes, she annoys me with her singing, her voice, and her movies and yes I love lifetime and watched that movie and still don't like either of them b/c they destroyed to precious children's home for their personal desires. Okay sorry for the rant.

Nikki said...

Completely agree! I hate to say this but my feelings for leAnn have changed! I used to love her but I feel like she has changed a lot over the years and it doesn't help she cheated. I know, I sound so mean but its just a feeling I get when I read her tweets and see her on tv lol. Yes, this would be awkward for sure but it would only be awkward for LeAnns sake because the mom didn't do anything wrong. Ya know what I'm saying? Lol

Caroline said...

They are all a little crazy. And that has to be so weird.

Dollface said...

I cant imagine sitting next to my husbands ex... awkward!

Cole said...

You're right, holy awkward!

I think that everyone deserves to be happy...but Eddie Cibrian should have left his wife before getting involved with someone else. Or maybe Leann Rhimes shouldn't have wooed a married man?! Either way...awkward!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Yeah I don't condone cheating either. But you do hear those stories when people are in these situations and meet the love of their lives. It's so hard because like you said there are always a million sides to every story and every situation is unique.

Jessie said...

WHOA!!! I hadn't heard about this! That's crazy!! How could you.. what the..??!!

Claudia said...

My BF of 4.5 years has a 15 yo daughter (he and the mom broke up loooooong before we met like the child was 2 or younger)

Anyway so I've been in these awkward situations and its a little uncomfortable, it actually wasn't so bad at first but then drama drama drama and its not about me its between the parents but affects everyone in the family.


I don't feel bad for Brandi though just because someone is a mom doesn't make them a good person or innocent of any wrongdoing

Impulsive Addict said...

I'm with you. I still think she's a homewrecker. I don't know the backstory or the history {nor did I watch their Lifetime movie} but I am no longer a fan of either one. Eddie was super hot too. DAMN IT.

samnhal said...

That picture is hilarious! Yeah, I think I'd go all crazy on her if I was his ex-wife. They were public enough about everything they were doing.

Shannon said...

I think that cheaters that stay together set themselves up for a lifetime of trust issues.

Abbie said...

I remember when this was going on and thinking how bad I felt for his wife, but now that I've "seen" her, I don't feel so bad. She's crazy!
