We’re wondering what the backlash to this announcement is going to be? They’re not exactly everyone’s favorite couple, since they’ve been branded as home-wreckers. LeAnne and Eddie were with their respective spouses Dean Sheremet and Brandi Glanville when they hooked up. And America hasn’t let them forget it since. Cue in the Shape magazine LeAnn cover controversy where public outcry was massive when the singer and Cibrian were written about. The editor, Valerie Latona, had to apologize in a statement that read, “Please know that our putting her on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal-but to show (through her story) how we all are human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment.”
That apology was later semi-retracted with Latona backpedaling, “The fact is a mere 40 readers out of almost 6 million readers wrote in to complain calling LeAnn a ‘husband stealer’ and a ‘terrible mistake for Shape.’ I wrote to those women apologizing that our cover choice did not make them happy Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as I have done for other cover stars in the past.”
Much ado about these two, as you can see. But now that they’re getting married, will they finally be accepted? Making things traditional has a way of acting like a balm. Perhaps people thought their relationship was just a pit-stop on Relationship Road. But now that they’re heading towards the aisle, you never know.
So yeah. Congrats?
