Let’s Talk About LeAnn Rimes’ New Song About Her Affair

Alright, I’m not going to go into the entire backstory of the LeAnn Rimes/Eddie Cibrian saga because I’m frankly quite bored with the whole thing. We get it. You fell in love on the set of a Lifetime original movie and had an affair, but it’s totes okay because you ended up together and got married and now your lives are a real Lifetime flick. Whatever.

So the affair happened in 2009. It’s almost 2013. I’m really tired of them doing everything in their power to keep this story in the spotlight, and I hate that it works! I feel like I’m trapped in another publicity stunt conspiracy. LeAnn has said several times that she doesn’t regret the affair and blah, blah, blah, laxatives. Even though I think Brandi Glanville is a crazy-face, I still think it’s pretty shitty that this scandal gets thrown in her face all the time. And because Eddie and Brandi have kids together, she has to deal with seeing LeAnn all.the.time. There have been several instances with LeAnn calling them her own kids. Like, lay off the bath salts, okay?

ANYWAY. LeAnn has a new album coming out in 2013 called SpitfireAnd her second single is called BorrowedAnd it’s about her affair with Eddie. And it features lyrics like this:

I know you’re not mine, only borrowed
Cause you already belong to her, at least you said so
But I’m starting to believe it ain’t the whole truth
As we’re lying side by side, I get the whole you

I Wanna hold out, but gotta hold on,
Even though I know it’s wrong
Cause I don’t want to give you back
I don’t want to give you back
You’re the best I’ll never have
So I don’t want to give you back
But you’re borrowed

And she says it was super emotional for her to write this, which in all seriousness I’m sure it was. But I hate that this is like a cheating anthem. We are not involved in their situation, and LeAnn and Eddie do seem totally in love. I just really can’t stand that she wrote a song about it for the public. Write the song for Eddie and yourself, but why put it out if you claim you want people to move past the affair? I don’t know, maybe so people will actually keep talking about it so you stay relevant?

I think there are other ways to move on from your cheating scandal. Like not writing a song about it. And like not talking about it in interviews anymore. But that’s just me.

What do you think about LeAnne Rimes’ new song? Do you think she should have written it for her album? Other thoughts?

    I think she's a skank and I always will. Not because of the affair but because of her actions since the affair. The taunting of the mother of these kids in insane! How many concerts has she canceled when Eddie has his kids? How many more plastic surgery procedures is she going to have? It's not going to keep Eddie, the money might though.

  2. Carrie says:

    Hey, if Taylor swift can write albums about exes, then why can't LeAnn write about her affair. Taylor is proof that airing your "dirty" laundry is not only lucrative, but can make you a Grammy award winning artist.

    Women are cheating all over the place, nowadays! (Leann Rimes/Cibrian, Coco/IceT, Kristen Stewart, Olympian/call-girl Suzy Favor Hamilton, Rita Ora/Kardashian, Petraeus women).

    My latest book, "I Steal Wives: A serial adulterer reveals the REAL reasons more and more 'happily married' women are cheating" is a powerful look at this EXPLOSIVE topic of female infidelity. And the REAL reasons aren't the typical blather you hear on talk-TV or read in the SECOND-HAND information of some psychologist's self-help book. It’s now in the top 1% of books selling on Amazon!

    The book is the FIRST BOOK EVER WRITTEN on female infidelity from the FIRST-HAND, insider experience of a serial adulterer, who cheated with the wives/girlfriends of over 25 married men (and a few women), and who also happens to be a therapist (never cheated with clients)! "I Steal Wives" is a salacious, self-deprecating, and penetratingly insightful look into what is now the very cutting-edge of relationships.

    It's the relationship version of "How to Secure Your House, as told by a professional burglar!" This is no joke, the raw truths of “I Steal Wives” will forever change how you do relationships and understand women, especially if you are one!

    Check it out now at Amazon! It's selling FAST!
