I hate it when celebrities think they can fool the public. Jessica and Nick not getting divorced? Yeah, right. Angelina and Brad not a couple? Good one, guys. So earlier this year, when rumors began to surface that LeAnn Rimes was doing the horizontal polka with Eddie Cibrian, her co-star in the lame Lifetime movie “Northern Lights,” we all shook our heads while both parties vehemently denied that anything was going on between them. I mean, they were both happily married to other people, so it couldn’t be true, right? RIGHT? That gig sort of worked, until Us Weekly posted a video that showed the pair kissing after a dinner together. Then Eddie’s wife left him. And People reported that LeAnn was no longer living with her hubby, Dean Sheremet. Now, how many months later, LeAnn and Eddie are finally ready to admit that they are actually together. A real shocker, right? Recently, they’ve gone on some very public dates, including one at a concert and another at the Valencia Country Club, where they flirted and golfed. Now, Eddie has, courteously, filed for divorce from his wife, Brandi, who said, “He’s just somebody I don’t know.” Conveniently, the divorce papers come right as news breaks that Rimes and Cibrian are taking off to Mexico for a romantic getaway.

So what do you think? Should celebrities just give up the denial game when the tabloids surface something about them that they were hoping to keep private?
