LAURA SAYS: How Dare You Try To Rationalize Cheating On Your Husband, Leann Rimes?

Nice try, Leann, but there is NEVER an excuse for infidelity!

I am pissed off. Leann Rimes has issued what seems to be a public apology for cheating on her faithful hubby of seven years, Dean Sheremet, with current boyfriend Eddie Cibrian, but her statement is so half-assed that I wonder why she bothered saying anything at all!

After telling Shape magazine that she “understood why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart (which is totally debatable, by the way), and admitting, “I don’t think the way I did it was right”, the 28-year-old country singer completely killed her act of contrition by placing the blame elsewhere!

“It wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us,” she said. “As [Dean and I] got older, we grew apart.”

Yeah…or you just couldn’t resist the adorable dimples and sexy butt of your Northern Lights co-star Eddie Cibrian, Leann. It’s not hard to see the reason why your marriage crumbled!

When Leann says that she realizes “there are lessons in it for me to learn” and that she’s now finally “cultivating strength from rough situations”, I kind of want to slap some sense into her. The only lesson here is THIS, sister: cheating is wrong, wrong, wrong! Don’t try to rationalize it and admit that you made a mistake!

Although you’re now living with Eddie, 37, after finalizing your divorce in December, I’m pretty sure it sucks for Dean to see photos of the two of you cuddling, making out and acting like a big, old happy family with Eddie’s kids. Really, how dare you say, “”After going through this, I know I can face anything”?  That’s Dean’s line — don’t rob him of that, too.
