Once upon a time, Dean Sheremet and LeAnn Rimes were happily married. That was, of course, until she cheated on him and broke his poor little heart in two. LeAnn filed for divorce after her affair with Eddie Cibrian went public. Dean received a divorce settlement from LeAnn, moved back to NYC, and started a quiet life for himself. He entered culinary school and met a new woman. The two are now happily married. He recently sat down with Access Hollywood, and opened up about how he never saw LeAnn’s infidelity coming.
Dean Sheremet learned that his wife LeAnn Rimes was cheating on him when she told him in a phone call. The dancer-turned-chef, who divorced the country singer in 2009, told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush on Thursday that he was blindsided when he learned that she was cheating on him with her married Northern Lights costar, Eddie Cibrian.
“I never saw it coming,” he admitted.
Sheremet, 32, revealed that Rimes called to tell him a magazine “may or may not have a picture of me and Eddie kissing.”
He was shocked and asked, “What do you mean, ‘May or may not have a picture?’ What does that mean?” he told Bush and co-host Kit Hoover. “It unfolded from there.”
Sheremet never imagined his wife would cheat on him. “You have that assumption that the person that you’re with would never do something like that,” he said.
Sheremet moved on and married photographer Sarah Silver, 37, in August 2011, four months after Rimes and Cibrian tied the knot. He admits that he and his ex haven’t kept in touch.
“We don’t really talk that much,” he said. “There’s not really a need to. I don’t really know what we would talk about.”
When asked if it bothers him to be asked about the situation two years later, Sheremet says no.
“It’s fine because I’ve really laid low during the whole thing. It’s part of my story and it’s the reason that I get to do awesome cooking segments. Whatever it is that gets me in the door is fine. I’m really a chef!”
I always thought Dean was such a great guy – and honestly – I always thought he was gay. At least that’s the rumor that was going around. Apparently he’s not gay – and happily married again! Good for him. Too bad things with LeAnn had to end up like they did…. but he’s probably lucky he got away from that one.
Here are new pictures of Dean and his new wife.
