Before LeAnn Rimes became a thorn in Brandi Glanville’s side, she was pretty happily married to Dean Sheremet. After LeAnn and Eddie Cibrian met and cheated on the set of Northern Lights, Eddie and LeAnn both divorced their spouses. Brandi has been chatting about her thoughts on the split everywhere and anywhere but Dean has been pretty laid back and kept the experience to himself for the most part..until now.
In a new interview Dean gets very candid about their relationship, her obsession with attention, the cheating and more!
Whether he felt like he lived in her shadow: “Not at first. It felt like we were a team. As it went on, the team became toxic. But when we were working together, we were brilliant. The dumbest thing she ever did for her career was divorce me. Because we were such a good team. The last hit song she had was when she was with me. It was “Nothing Better to Do”. I had that title in my head and was kicking it around for a bit. We got our friend Darrell Brown, who is a phenomenal writer, to write it with us and we wrote the whole album.
On LeAnn’s spending: “Not with the life, just the way that she would spend money. We would go shopping and not even look at the amount. It’s just a weird life. I come from Mid-Western core values where you’re smart about your money.”
He was never on LeAnn’s payroll: “No. God no. I would have never let that happen. Everything was joint. And she never made me feel that way. There was never talk of money or me not pulling my weight. I think she felt like we were a great team. It always felt equal. She always made it feel equal. Until we got divorced and I found out how unequal it was.
On encouraging her to do Northern Lights: “The funny thing is I’m the one who pushed her to do that movie… LeAnn has always had her heart set on acting. But you need to put the work in. I think she’s been so used to everything coming so easy to her that she just assumed, “I’ll act”. So I was like, “This is a soft way to get yourself on a set, have lines, go through the motions.” I saw her being ambivalent and was like, “That’s not gonna get you where you need to be. Do this movie. It’s gonna be great for you!”
