LeAnn Rimes' Ex Opens Up About Her Affair

dean sheremetDean Sheremet is breaking his four-year silence to dish about his ex-wife LeAnn Rimes and her lover Eddie Cibrian.

He told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush that discovering his wife was having an affair seriously rocked his work.  He acknowledges, "I never saw it coming."

LeAnn called him while she was filming 'Northern Lights.'  She said, "Us Weekly may or may not have a picture of me and Eddie kissing." His reply, "What do you mean, 'May or may not have a picture' ... What does that mean?"

He admits he was totally blindsided by her 2009 revelation, "You have that assumption that the person that you're with would never do something like that."

Two years later LeAnn and Eddie got married, as did Sheremet and photographer Sarah Silver.

Suffice it say they have not remained friends though he doesn't hold any animosity.  He admits, "We don't really talk that much. There's not really a need to. I don't really know what we would talk about."

After the split he moved to New York City and went to culinary school.  The dancer-turned-chef and food blogger has definitely moved on -- something that Eddie's ex, Brandi Glanville, might want to try.
