With the news that Dean Sheremet, LeAnn Rimes's cuckolded husband, is sharing woes with the estranged wife of LeAnn's boyfreind Eddie Cibrian, Brandi Glanville, we thought we'd take a look at a few other famous spouses who came out on top after their honeys cheated. After all, there has to be a bright side of getting cheated on, other than free rein to slash your ex’s tires and complimentary drinks from sympathetic friends.
Justin Timberlake: Remember when Britney Spears was America's Virginal Princess? Yeah, that was awhile ago (younger readers: It was in a magical time called the '90s!). She and Justin were a match made in Mickey Mouse Club heaven, until Britney allegedly dallied with her tour choreographer, Wade Robson. Scorned Justin wrote "Cry Me a River" and shot a music video with a unfaithful Britney lookalike, began wearing fetching little hats, and was never photographed barefoot in a public restroom. Point: Justin.
Kate Gosselin: The mom of eight's on-show nagging always struck us as obnoxious, until we found out what an insufferable man-child that poor woman was yoked to all those years. Jon's flings with family friend Hailey Glassman and Star reporter Kate Major, as well as antics like cavorting on Christian Audiger's yacht and poolside in Vegas while his wife was home with their eight kids, only served to illustrate what a fashion victim douchebag he is. Her hairstyle is pretty harmless in comparison, no?
Shania Twain: Seriously, who cheats on Shania Twain?! She's a goddess. And she's from the back woods of Canada, so we're pretty sure girlfriend knows her way around various weapons. But her husband of fourteen years, producer Robert "Mutt" Lange, allegedly had an affair with one of Shania's best friends, the family's assistant, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. "She was devastated," a friend of Shania's told People. "This isn't just about her—it's her career, her life, her child, someone she thought was a close friend: Everything gets pulled out from underneath her." Shania has been out of the spotlight, recording her next album and raising her eight-year-old son, but we're confident she'll rebound from this.
