It’s no secret that Eddie Cibrian was unfaithful during his marriage to ex-wife Brandi Glanville, one of the stars on the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Now, the actor's former mistress, Scheana Marie, has claimed that he tried to reignite their affair, even after he began dating his current wife, LeAnn Rimes.
Marie told Radar Online in an exclusive interview that after Cibrian had officially split from Glanville, he reached out to her again, asking to get drinks.
“As months go by, Eddie gets separated. He then contacts me to go out for drinks,” Marie, 27, said in the interview. “I believed he was separated, so I was happy to go out with him again. But shortly into trying to hang out with him I find out about LeAnn, and I felt like such an idiot!”
Marie also claimed not to have known about Cibrian’s marriage when she became involved with the actor the first time around, an admission which likely isn’t news to “Real Housewives” viewers.
“Originally, I met him seven years ago. When a really good-looking guy with big dimples wants to take you out for drinks your first question isn’t ‘are you married because you don’t have a ring on your finger?’” she said. “We hung out, it was quite casual and about six months in my mom saw an article and was like, ‘that Eddie guy you are dating, is his last name Cibrian and is he on Third Watch?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, what do you hear?’ And she told me that he and his wife are expecting their second child!”
Marie said that when she confronted Cibrian about the news, he came clean and apologized to her. “He was like, ‘I’m so sorry I lied to you.’ He then switched the conversation and said, ‘by the way, are you still doing the acting thing? I have a project I’m funding, and there’s a role for you that would be great.’”
She said it’s been years since they last spoke and that she and has no interest in doing so. The Radar Online interview comes days after an episode of “The Real Housewives” aired, in which Marie and Glanville finally have a sit down. Marie has a small role on the reality show because she works at a restaurant owned by fellow housewife Lisa Vanderpump and that has served as a source of tension for Glanville.
In a heated confrontation, Glanville accused Marie of being a “hooker” and sleeping with celebrities for attention. Marie told Radar Online that those claims were unfair and that she understood why Glanville was so angry with her.
“Brandi was angry with me because I didn’t think about her feelings when I was interviewed by Access Hollywood about the affair,” Marie said. “Honestly, I didn’t. And that was a big mistake I made. All I thought was that I wanted to get back at Eddie because he broke my heart too.
“If I could go back I would take back every interview I ever did about him. It was a very selfish thing I did,” she said.
