The Lifetime Movie Responsible for Ending Two Celebrity Marriages

A Lifetime movie sparked a romance between a singer and an actor.

While filming a 2009 movie for Lifetime, “Northern Lights,” country singer LeAnn Rimes and actor Eddie Cibrian fell in love. The problem was that they were both married to other people. Lifetime is known for its dramatic films, but rarely does the drama translate off-screen. An official logline for the film notes: “Romantic drama about a Baltimore cop who relocates to a small town in Alaska to start a new life after his partner is killed. Tormented by the thought that he may have been partly responsible for the death, the cop must put aside his personal demons to solve a high-profile murder that threatens his fledgling romance with a feisty bush pilot, whose negligent father is the deceased.”

Cibrian was married to “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” staple Brandi Glanville, and Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet. The affair caused a media frenzy months before the guilty parties separated from their respective spouses in 2009. A source told PEOPLE at the time that Rimes and Sheremet were separated. “Le and Dean have been separated for quite some time now, but they’re continuing to try and work through their relationship,” Rimes’ friend told the outlet at the time. They’d been married since 2007, when Rimes was only 19. They even threw a “Seven-Year Itch” party to, as Rimes noted, “remember how blessed we are.” The seven-year itch is a period of time in marriages when couples hit a rough patch. No one was expecting something that rough.

Glanville first confirmed that she and Cibrian were separating. “Eddie is a devoted and loving father first and foremost and the speed bump he and Brandi are experiencing needs to be worked out privately for everyone’s benefit,” his manager said in a statement. Initially, Rimes and Cibrian denied they were having an affair and claimed the splits from their respective spouses were a long time coming.

Eventually, Rimes and Cibrian wed in 2011. She opened up about their decision in an interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “We all make choices that lead us into a different path, here and there, and you learn from those or you don’t,” Rimes said. “It obviously brought us to the place where we are now. And we’re happy, and we’re married. I think we have both come to a really good place in our lives. And right now, I’m really at peace.”

The Lifetime movie “Northern Lights” not only brought Rimes and Cibrian together but also led to the end of their previous marriages. The affair was a hot topic in the media, with both stars facing public scrutiny. Despite the initial denials, the truth eventually came out, and the couple’s relationship became a focal point of tabloid stories.

Rimes and Cibrian’s relationship has been a subject of public interest since the beginning. Their affair was highly publicized, and both faced backlash from fans and the media. However, they managed to navigate through the controversy and build a life together. Their marriage has been a testament to their commitment to each other, despite the rocky start.

The story of Rimes and Cibrian is a reminder of how life can take unexpected turns. Their relationship, which began on the set of a Lifetime movie, led to the end of two marriages and the beginning of a new chapter for both of them. It’s a story that highlights the complexities of love and relationships, and how sometimes, the path to happiness is not always straightforward.

In the years since their marriage, Rimes and Cibrian have continued to work in the entertainment industry. They have also been open about their relationship, sharing their experiences and challenges with the public. Their story is a reminder that love can be found in unexpected places, and that sometimes, the most difficult decisions can lead to the greatest happiness.

The Lifetime movie “Northern Lights” may have been a dramatic film, but the real-life drama that unfolded off-screen was even more compelling. Rimes and Cibrian’s relationship is a testament to the power of love and the importance of following your heart, even when the path is difficult.

Their story also serves as a reminder of the impact that our choices can have on our lives and the lives of those around us. The decision to pursue a relationship despite being married to other people was a difficult one, but it ultimately led to a new beginning for both Rimes and Cibrian.

In the end, the Lifetime movie “Northern Lights” was responsible for ending two celebrity marriages, but it also brought two people together who found happiness and love with each other. It’s a story that reminds us of the complexities of love and the importance of following our hearts, even when the path is not always clear.
