Yesterday, we had yet another preview of LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s ABC interview. It aired last night, but I can’t say that I watched it. From the coverage of it this morning, I think we already covered all of the relevant quotes anyway, specifically LeAnn’s discussion of her affair with Eddie: “I’ve always sais I don’t live my life with regret. I can’t… It happens every day to so many people. And I if I take away my album sales, my words, and you have just another couple. You had two couples whose marriages didn’t work who really stumbled upon each other and fell in love. I can’t change [critics'] minds. Nothing I’m going to say is going to change it. I do know that and I have accepted that.” However, before the interview even aired, LeAnn got on her semantic high horse and tweeted this:
I said “I don’t live my life in regret.” I did not and never will say I do not “regret” my affair. I have had moments of regret and guilt over and over again, but i refuse to live my life in it. Any person working on moving on with their life in health and happiness must let go of those feelings. I’ve said I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused so many times and did again in the Robin interview. I wish happiness and peace for us all. Life is too short for hate and regret, and too long to not tell the truth. God doesn’t make mistakes, we do as humans and hopefully we take away lessons from each experience, humbled by the power of forgivenes [sic].

Eh. I mean, I get what she’s saying, and I understand the semantic difference she’s trying to draw, but I still think she’s incredibly smug about the whole thing. And since I know this is going to set off a huge debate, let me just give my current opinion on the situation, which, surprisingly enough, hasn’t changed over the past year or so - I think LeAnn and Eddie were horrible for cheating on their respective spouses, but sh-t happens and it would have been perfectly possible for LeAnn and Eddie to both completely recover with some smart PR and some sense of mystery. My problem with LeAnn at this point isn’t that she wrecked her own marriage and helped wreck Eddie’s - my problem is everything that came after. My problem is that LeAnn thinks she’s “the victim” while simultaneously being an over-sharing, smug, nasty piece of work. It’s the dumb PR that bothers me most of all, because it wouldn’t have been that difficult for her to just TAKE IT DOWN A NOTCH. She actually puts a lot of effort into being so hated.
Here are some clips from the interview:
