OK, we didn’t see this one coming: singer and actress Leann Rimes is rumored to have had an affair with her co-star, actor Eddie Cibrian, on the set of her new Lifetime movie! Evidently the two had great chemistry while they were working on the set of Northern Lights and things became a little more cozy off-set, with recent photos showing the two holding hands and kissing during a romantic dinner and additional reports of a three-hour tryst at the Malibu Beach Inn on March 14. Rimes did not address the rumors during her Wednesday morning appearance on Regis and Kelly but has taken to her website to address the rumors, saying, "This is a difficult time for me and my loved ones, but I appreciate all your continued support. I would like to assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white."
Rimes has been married to backup dancer Dean Sheremet since February 23, 2002. Perhaps it was a seven-year itch? We’re not even sure the rumors are true but we will keep you posted on the progress. Poor LeAnn, though. We imagine she’s blue about the whole thing.
