Eddie Cibrian I remembered from Sunset Beach and then later from Third Watch..... he's an ok actor at best... better looking than he is talented IMHO (especially if you watched Invasion lolol).
When it came out they were having an affair..... I was: disappointed.
I remembered seeing the wedding pictures of LeAnn Rimes first marriage to a dancer - she seemed so young and so eager to get away from her father - who she would fire as her manager. Like most 'famous' kids.... her childhood wasn't her own- it belonged to the public. First the public at the local talent show, then the local fair, then the State Fair and so on.
Sometimes I wonder how many times we have to watch the Michael Jackson Factor play out over and over and over... Britney Spears can't even decide what food she eats, and magazines on every shelf are littered with the tragic tales of child stars of yesterday whose lives spin out of control.
It's not rocket science, it's a bit like being fat. Everyone starts out with (more of less) the same size stomach, but when you're famous - your "fame stomach" get's bloated - fast. People come and over-fill it with the adulation of millions and the money that comes with it.... when the public tire of your talents and those closest to you are done raping of you of your earnings.... eventually the stomach processes it's abundance of atta-boy food and deflates. Once it's all gone.... and there's no one left to fill you back up- you're just standing there, with an empty stomach with sagging, empty 'skin' that accompanies a once bloated, famous, wonderful 'you'.
Dragging this excess and empty baggage often becomes too much for kids who never learned the tools the rest of us un-talents did and it all becomes too much for them - they are unable to fill those "fame stomachs" because frankly.... there's nothing that will ever fill them up again other than more fame and adulation.
Corey Haim and Corey Feldman are prime examples of this..... mind you, I *still* heart the Corey's.
When US magazine first ran pictures of Eddie Cibrian having an affair with LeAnn Rimes - I wasn't too surprised. Hollywood types do this kind of thing all the time.... right? But even before my own personal episode with El Capitan - I lost total respect for LeAnn. And Eddie I suppose... but I never held him in high regard as an actor anyhow...
I'm not super into country.... and my radio mostly plays Justin Beiber, anything on Disney Radio and the odd Ben Folds or Belle Sebastian that I sneak past The Boy. I'm not terribly up on current music so LeAnn and her sordid affair kind of fell off my radar.....
Then little Miss LeAnn went to rehab... and then popped up on 20/20 with Katie Couric to tell us all why we should feel sorry for her overly-wealthy, waaaay too-skinny, home-wrecking self..... she skirted a little bit around things - but I got the feeling that we're just supposed to accept her discretion's and move on.
Really? Is the pressure of ruining someone else's marriage and the social backlash for being a home-wrecker just too much for you to handle.....?
Hey - here's an idea: you shouldn't have f*cking done it. PERIOD.
I did a little digging, because her crying spat on 20/20 had me wondering.... and I found this nugget that she said to ABC news in 2010:
"That's just not me. What happened is not who I am, period. But I do know how much I love him. So I've always said I don't live my life with regret. I can't."
But that IS you.... that's the *same* bullsh*t that that Riley b*tch say's when she talks about John Edwards.... and it's THE SAME THING Yoga Girl say's. *IF* you were the mistress of a married man... then you *are* a mistress. Get it?
I eat donuts - too many donuts therefore I am fat.
If you become the fluid receptacle for another woman's husband and then YOU are the mistress, the home-wrecker. PERIOD.
Facts are facts... and the size of my Lane Bryant Jeans don't lie.
In that same interview she goes on to say this gem:
"It happens every day to so many people. And I if I take away my album sales, my words, and you have just another couple. You had two couples whose marriages didn't work who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love," Rimes said. "I can't change [critics'] minds. Nothing I'm going to say is going to change it. I do know that and I have accepted that."
Huh? You know what else happens every day.......? People die of Cancer and Aids and drunk driving and women get raped and people get murdered..... and we don't find those things very 'acceptable', do we?
How totally nonchalant can you be? So cavalier about someone else's pain..... because I heard Brandi's version of things.... Eddie first DENIED the affair to her. Called her to warn her about the spread in US magazine - this is *after* the "two couples" involved dined together and hung out together.....
Poor Brandi not only was unaware that her marriage wasn't "working" - she was friends with the very reason it wasn't "working" anymore.... hhmm..... I sure as sh*t hope that doesn't happen everyday.
LeAnn seems sad that so many people don't "understand" their love. It's as though she wants to stand in the wreckage of two broken homes, one of which had children, while proudly donning a hardhat and holding the jackhammer that took down the two structures, smile sweetly and say... "Well, I never had a childhood.... you don't understand me... and we're really in love." And that public that once used to stuff her 'fame stomach' full to brimming over - is supposed to st
Hey LeAnn.... Here's a another nugget of truth: Eddie once "loved" Brandi the same way - hence the whole being married and having two kids with her.....
If this was the case of two marriages that "weren't working"... then why not do what MOST PEOPLE DO EVERY DAY: fight for it.
People go to counseling, they talk to their pastor or priest, they read a few books - they talk to each other and *try* to work out the differences in their relationship with their spouse.... they don't go find the nearest hole to bury their trouser snake in.
So waaaaaaahhhhhh, LeAnn Rimes. Does the world "not understand you"?
Hey - here's a thought... what if we *do* understand you - and we don't like what we see? Did you think of that? I'll be totally honest: I DO NOT like what I see.
In LeAnn's new song - Borrowed - there is a line that say's, "I don't want to give you back. You're the best I've ever had."
Umm...... that's great. That makes that pill entirely easier to swallow.... so, if I'm Brandi - I'm supposed to suddenly be "ok" with the fact that you're a two-faced, lying, cheater - and simply because my husband was the "best you ever had" then - you don't have to "give him back"?
I guess it's a good that the only thing you appear to swallow is very low on calories.
No, I'm NOT Brandi - I don't know any of these people personally.... but - I'm just tired of these spineless, moral-less whores making their catastrophic choices and then standing around, stomping their feet and demanding the world forgive them (and continue to buy their albums.....) - just because it was "real love" and we all just need to "understand".
Grow up, LeAnn.
or better yet...... why don't you cry me a river.... because I know for a fact, Brandi has cried oceans over you. And, incidentally, if Eddie's time on Sunset Beach is any indicator of what kind of lifeguard he's going to be - if you ever get swept up in that ocean.... Eddie isn't equipped to save you and you'll drown.... may be *that's* the real reason you went to therapy.
