In a story straight out of Days Of Our Lives, Shania Twain is engaged to Frederic Thiebaud, who just so happens to be the ex-husband of Shania’s first husband Mutt Lange’s mistress. And if you can understand that confusing sentence, you win a free membership to MENSA! In a tale so convoluted it almost makes Shania her own grandpa, the pair first started canoodling in 2008 following Twain’s divorce from Lange, who left the singer for her then best friend Marie-Anne Thiebaud, though both Lange and lady Thiebaud now deny they had an affair. Normally we’d say you should never date your friend’s ex, but if it’s purely for revenge, then get that hunk of Swiss chocolate, honey!
While Thiebaud and Twain kept their tawdry soap-opera love on the down low for a while, in 2009 Shania admitted that Frederic was “a dear friend and true gentleman…We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. We’ve become stronger and closer through it all.” Looking good is the best revenge after getting dumped, we always say, and if marrying a hot European Nestle executive doesn’t make you look good, we don’t know what does. Seriously, think of all the hot chocolate he must get!
