LeAnn Rimes Takes the High Road

LeAnn Rimes Takes the High Road

LeAnn Rimes starts out her day with lunch at the Brentwood Country Mart on Thursday (June 4) in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 26-year-old country star has been embroiled in a whirlwind of controversy with Lifetime co-star, Eddie Cibrian and his wife, Brandi Glanville.

LeAnn recently commented, “You know what, I’m a classy woman, I’m never ever going to battle anything out in the press. I have respect for everyone that is involved and everyone’s family, including my own. I would never want to hurt my husband or anyone else with more lies dragged out in the press. It is what it is. I can’t control other people but I can control what I say and what I don’t. I refuse to get down on any one else’s level and I’m going to take the high road on everything.”

    What a cheating Fuccking Whore.

  • sandi

    wonder why they have not had kids? They’ve been married quite awhile. Could be because they are both still pretty immature.

    Yes Darling, Classy White Trash!

  • nat

    I love how everyone is blaming it all on her, as if he was force to have an affair with her.

  • pat

    Team LeAnn, all the way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • christyjolie

    she should have taken the highroad before she screwed him! classy my ass!

  • christyjolie

    @nat:

    not blaming it all on her but she acts like she is classy… it takes two!

  • nat

    @christyjolie: Yes but everyone here is calling her a slot, homewrecker a etc. As if he was a poor innocent guy who she force to have sex with her. The wife looks pathetic putting all this on the press. The one that owns her an explication is him no her. When they were seen on that laker game( I think that what the wife was taking about) he seems very happy.

  • Lisa too

    How is she taking the high road when she makes a comment like that?? Hmmm. Sounds like she knows she has been caught and now she has has “no comment”. after making a comment???

  • Michelle

    affairs happen. they’re complicated. who are you to judge? at least they decided to try and work things out with their own spouses. the one that looks shady is eddie’s wife – get a grip and wake up from your denial and stop trying to bring down leann. it was YOUR husband who cheated on you and you should leave him instead of being so emotionally connected. he’ll do it again. pathetic.

  • P

    My take is that Eddie and his wife want publicity. Why would any scorned woman, still with her husband, rehash in a national magazine that she was cheated on?

  • gwen

    LR comes out looking shady and pathetic. She was the one that made sure that she was spotted at the Lakers game with EC., didn’t she cancel a concert? She was playing the “I’ll make his wife leave him, since he won’t leave his wife” game and it backfired on her. She thought the wife was going to sit back and take it, and learned a lesson. That being LR doesn’t entitle her to whatever she wants.

  • gwen

    Notice that when the REAL VICTIM ( Brandi) speaks up, she is labled or branded as a villian (ie- as scorned or the attention seeker).

  • sasha

    Like a kid that got caught with her hand in the cookie jar, “Why who are they referring too, sweet little ol me? Maybe his wife will catch her out somewhere and give her a good ol southern girl a** whippin!!!

  • mm

    Probably because Brandi is an attention seeker. She appears to be mentally ill. And I am not a fan of LeeAnn Rimes either.

  • lani

    huh real victim? brandi is just stupid. her husband cheated on her and then she said the other woman’s a stalker. she only victimizes herself by saying stupid sh\t to the press. women whose husbands cheat are no victims. they are victims only if they are in denial and still stay with the cheaters.

  • Donna

    @gwen:
    Don’t you think Brandi could have handled this in private? Maybe confront LeAnn directly or file a complaint with the police. If they wanted to go the publicity route, why didn’t Eddie speak up? I am ambivalent to LeAnn, but it seems like she is being set up. I think Eddie comes out looking like the biggest jerk of them all.

  • sasha

    i guess you never really know how your going to handle something until your in that situation. Right now I think Brandi is just talking out of pain and fear. Leann and Eddie are not speaking up because their guilty as hell. When people are innocent and accused wrongly they want everyone to know they are innocent.

    S*** happens, life goes on. Everybody should butt out of their business.

    GWEN AND SASHA

    Agree with both of you Brandi is just hurting and feeling humiliated but yes, I agree going to the press is not a good idea, we don’t know how we would react if we had the same problem. But I don’t think Brandi is doing this for the fame, she is getting slated now and we do a lot of stupid things when we are hurting. Leann and Eddie are to blame for this fiasco not Brandi, she is trying to hold her family together, but Eddie is not worth it.

  • hhmm

    Brandi is a pathetic lose, rather than get a job she rather stay with her cheating husband.

  • Pandora

    Classy! LMAO And she doesn’t want to hurt her husband? Oh! I thought she’d accomplished that already. As to Brandi — she’s a fool if she thinks this is the end of either LR or some other tart like her. I don’t blame Brandi for saying those things. Obviously she made those comments to further humiliate LR (well, to try to — LR seems like a dim bulb).

    LR — people w/ class have morals. Just so you know, dear!

  • robins3

    Eddie has cheated before..maybe somethings wrong in he marriage.

    He’s too gorgeous for either of them.

    Eddie has cheated before. Something must be wrong with their marriage.

    Eddie is too gorgeous. Most women will undress for him. And Dean looks limp-wristed.

  • robins3

    LeAnn has incredible talent and charisma. Men find that appealing eventhough she may not be a great beauty.

    And Eddie is a philanderer . It’s not his first transgression though it is his most public one.

    LeAnn has a great voice and creative talent. Brandi may have 2 big boobs and not much else.

  • Roxanne

    What’s so classy about a married woman fcking a married man. Sneaking into motel room and sucking on his fingers. She’s nothing but hill billy white trash. Making a statement like that shows she’s not taking the high road…she’s enjoying all this publicity. Why is everyone blaming Brandi, what did she do wrong? Her husband and LeAnn is at fault, but if some heffa was calling my home and disrupting my life after everything was made public, yeah i’ll call her a$$ out for the phony bitch she is. The real victims in all of this is her children

  • Dread not

    “I refuse to get down on any one else’s level and I’m going to take the high road on everything.”

    Unfortunately, that high road is a dirt one, with a road side diner that serves “the best road kill opposum with all tha fixin’s you can eat!” And in the corner, while patrons scrape the charred maggots from their fine cuisine’, is the best little jug band, this side of the Chattahoochie River! Leeann didn’t mean to love on that man. But dang nabbit! She’s just a country girl at heart. She embraces the natural things in life. The smell of fresh horse manure. Walkin’ down a country lane barefoot. And a nice roll in the hay with a married man. So, when she says “high road” and “anyone elses level”, keep these things in mind.

  • James

    Maybe you should have taken the high road before you decided to cheat on your husband….and in PUBLIC???

    loser

  • robins3

    LeAnn is NOT southern white trash. She has a good education and a good intelligence.

    Some of these postings must be Brandi herself.

    LeAnn is a very talented woman.

    And Eddie is known to sleep around. Women fall into bed easily with him. He’s HOT!!!!!!!

  • Not impressed by JA

    Just because she ‘may’ have cheated, doesn’t erase the fact that afterwards she can still act classy and not submitted in more dirt.
    -
    People act like when you have done something’s wrong, you should not learened from it or act in a more mature way. People act like they themeselves are sinless.
    -
    I can understand Eddie’s wife reaction though but ultimately, it is never, EVER a good thing to go public about something like this, especially when you have kids.
    -
    I hope all the persons involved will sort out this privately.

  • Dread not

    @Not impressed by JA: I hope all the persons involved will sort out this privately.

    Dn: Where’s the fun in that? There are kids involved, yeah. But she’s an entertainer. Yeah, she’s a singer, but still she’s an entertainer. This stuff is entertaining. Mildly enterttaining, but it’s still entertaining.

    So, LeAnn, keep talkin’ trash, I want to be entertained! And show us that “book learnin’ yall gots from your round ’bout parts where you growed up at.”

  • robins3

    To Dread not

    It is you and not LeAnn who lacks an education.

    Shes got it you ain’t!

  • Dread not

    @robins3:

    To Dread not

    It is you and not LeAnn who lacks an education.

    Shes got it you ain’t!

    Dn: She’s got it and she can keep it! But apparently LeAnn wants to spread it around. Is LeAnn’s type of “education” contagious? It wouldn’t be something called, Swine Flu, would it? Nah, that’d be crazy. But just to be on the safe side, in case it is communicable (catch that word, more than two syllables), LeAnn should be quarantined, just in case. Did she grow up on a pig farm, by any chance?

    Well, gotta hit the gym. You can leave a response and I’ll try to catch it later in the afternoon. Wait, poor choice of words. I don’t want to catch anything, just in case you came in contact with LeAnns “education.” I mean, I’ll try to read it later.

  • robins3

    Dread Not

    You are a narrow-minded, trash heap yourself. Or maybe your real name is Brandi Glanville !?!

  • Shelby

    Nope. Too late. You chose the low road when you had an affair with a married man. He’s just as guilty, but he’s not claiming he’s the classy one.

  • Class is out

    Listen up kiddies!!! Yeah you guys who are harphing on St. LeAnn and crazy Brandi and Awful Eddie.
    LeAnn was wrong to make this statement. Saying nothing is best.
    LeAnn was alsowrong totake upwiuthEddie(married legally still and whohas kids). Don’t forgete she is legallymaried too. I really doubt if Dean Shermet and Bradi Cibrian gave their belssing tothisaffair. AN afair is always ugly sothatis whyit is anafair. If itcan’t be seen out inthetown square at high noon on a wekday,then is undercover anddark. LeAnn and Eddie sneaked off to a Malibu hotel…arriving separatley…etc. Nasty. Affairs,all parties,guilty( LeAnn and Eddie) and innocent( Dean and Brandi and thekids) get hurt. LeAnn has hte most to lose being she cnabuy and sell Dean, Brandi and Eddie a few times over being that LeAnn is Country’s Music favorite child being that she is famous and being that her career is at stake. I don’t think any of the others there,Dean, Brandi and evenEddie have ,umm careers. This is real bad for LeAnn. She needs better advisors. She needs to fix her maraige. She needed to stop stalking Eddie. He played her and his wife. He just boosted way up in the fame game froma little tv actor, not really known, to having hisname out there.
    MaybeEddie and Brandipalnned it. One has to be shockproof.
    Isaw LeAnn last year onKenny Chesney’s tour. Great. How will CMfans receive her now….ehhhh!!!
    The only person here who has class and has been quiet taking the high road is Dean Sheremet(LeAnn’s legal husband).
    Yeah,theymarried young. Have maried for a long time. Okay, separate. Divorce. CMfans and her public could take that. She could show class. If she would have had even an affair with a single guy.
    As she said,it is what it is. Yeah,well,classy aint what it is.

  • robins3

    LeAnn has amazing talent and a good heart.

    People make mistakes. Aren’t we supposed to forgive?

  • Brian354

    LeAnn Rimes says she�s a �classy lady� and would never hurt her husband or anyone else. This is the same person who just days ago sang �I jizz in my pants� on national television, who performed a topless sex act for a tv movie, who has been photographed in porn shops, who just months ago was making-out in restaurants with two different men, who openly sucked on Eddie Cibrian�s fingers at dinner, who committed adultery with another woman�s husband, who has let the media destroy her husband�s reputation without a word of defense on his behalf, who had her pimp setup a lovers rendezvous at a hotel and when the sex was done invited her pimp back for a room-service snack, who parades around LA with no makeup or bra wearing Eddie Cibrian�s grey tee shirt, who cancelled a concert in Jacksonville so she could stalk her lover at a b-ball game. Need I go on? Yes, about hurting people! Her adulterous affair has left Brandi Cibrian with a broken heart, broken trust, and two children wondering what is the difference between right and wrong. If Dean Sheremet is not hurt by all this, then he is gay and cares not one wit for LeAnn. They must have an open marriage which is a contradiction in terms to some of us. Was not Dean hurt when Rimes paraded him around to sell her book then stuck him back in the closet like so much costume jewelry and we have not seen him since? Rimes knows nothing about class or hurting people because she cares only about her own image. She left Nashville for LA where class has a whole different meaning. In Nashville when they talk about class they speak of Reba, Martina, Carrie, Taylor, and all the other truly classy ladies.

  • Mike32939

    The fact is that we all rag on Rimes is because over the years we have expected so much more from her. She has let us down and disappointed us with this extreme behavior. She has shown herself to be a hypocrite and obsessed with publicity. Eddie Cibrian is a maggot and no one has ever expected anything from him except the bottom of the barrel stuff. The fact that LeAnn would fall for a scum like Eddie Cibrian is the ultimate disappointment. I feel bad for Brandi and wish she’d divorse the guy because cheating on her is a lifestyle for him.

  • robins3

    Anybody ever consider the idea of forgiveness”

  • Julia9390

    These lies about LeAnn must stop! She is wearing her cross necklace. In LA doesn’t a cross necklace hold the same moral values as a wedding ring? For a minute there, I thought maybe LeAnn was wearing her cross as just jewelry but a wholesome gal like her would never wear a cross she can not bear. Everything is just fine!!!!!

  • robins3

    If the “stalking” claim is false then LeAnn should sue .

  • baly

    She cannot comment because she is having an affair. It takes two to have an affair and the wife of Eddie should condemn both parties not just Leann.

  • sherry

    You know Leeann is LOVING this attention. This is what she is about.
    A fameho and nothing more. What a home-wrecking BI_CH!!!!

  • pinney

    Brandi and her kids are the ones who are victims in this mess. If she wants to talk or vent, yeah, go for it girl!!!! As for the trashy sl_t LeeAnn, this girl is so digging the attention and the gossip. Just look at her eyes, LeeAnn is one scary freeaky fameho!!!!
