LeAnn Rimes on Shape's cover
LeAnn Rimes graces on the cover of October’s Shape magazine and she gave an interview about why she cheated on her former husband of six years, Dean Sheremet.
“My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us. We got married so young: I was 19 and he was 21, so as we got older, we grew apart”, she said.
While still married to Dean, LeAnn started an affair with her co-star Eddie Cibrian while shooting a ‘Lifetime’ movie in 2008.
“I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right”, the singer said about her decision of having an affair with Eddie who was also married at the time.
But now she wants to move on. “I truly believe there are lessons in it for me to learn. Cultivating strength from rough situations is the most important thing. After going through this, I know I can face anything”, she said.
And apparently, doing some exercises helps her a lot.
“Just getting to the gym, even for a few minutes, was a big accomplishment. It gave me a bit of sanity. Even now, on days when I’m really frustrated, I’ll walk into the gym and say to my trainer, ‘We’re boxing today. For an hour. I need to hit things. Sometimes we take group-cycling classes together, but when it comes to weight training, we pretty much do our own thing. He’s going to kill me for saying this, but when I ask him to work out with me, he always says no. And when I ask why, he says, ‘Because your workouts are too hard.’ And he’s right: I’m serious about my exercise. I don’t just doodle around. I see people at the gym talking on their cell phones. If they think their bodies are really going to change … I mean, you’ve got to put in the effort!” she added.
