It's not easy being Eddie Cibrian.
In March, the handsome actor found himself at the center of a cheating scandal when he was accused of having an affair with LeAnn Rimes (which he denied, even though it was kind of totally true). In July, his wife Brandi Glanville separated from him.
The reason? His affair with LeAnn Rimes. And Scheana Marie Jancan.
In any event, the CSI: Miami star has since been spending time with Rimes - who herself recently separated from her husband of more than seven years, Dean Sheremet - and speaking out about the drama for the first time.
Well, speaking up truthfully for the first time.
"I don't know how people perceive me," he told Entertainment Tonight. "I do know when you reach a certain point in your career you're placed in a fishbowl."
"Things unfortunately get magnified. We are all human, we are not perfect."
Eddie Cibrian and Brandi Glanville married in 2002. He was first linked to LeAnn Rimes earlier this year when the pair co-starred in the Lifetime movie Northern Lights.
Cibrian would not discuss his relationship with Rimes, but called attention to the love he has for his two kids, Mason, 5, and Jake, 2, as well as his estranged wife, Brandi Glanville, who has spoken openly about her husband's alleged infidelity.
"The fact is I love my family dearly, and I'm a great father," Eddie says.
"It just saddens me that this is hurtful and being played out publicly."
