â¢ What a good stepmom! LeAnn Rimes enjoyed a shopping outing at the Malibu Country Mart with hubby Eddie Cibrian's boys Mason and Jake. The country singer, in leopard print shoes, browsed the stores - and even ran into actor Gary Busey and his girlfriend. Later in the day, Rimes returned to the Mart - this time with her hubby for a romantic meal at Nobu.
â¢ LeAnn Rimes rang in her 28th birthday in the pool with live-in boyfriend Eddie Cibrian. The country singer, her beau and a few friends decamped to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for a celebratory weekend of tanning and poolside R&R. "On her birthday, LeAnn and Eddie shared a room service breakfast before heading to the beach," a source says. The two also sipped fruity cocktails before heading to a private pool. "Eddie was very attentive to LeAnn," the source says of the "lovey-dovey" duo.

Adds the onlooker: "LeAnn was beaming when she met up with Eddie - and she was in a very flirty mood." The two shared salad, hamburgers and iced tea - then kissed goodbye before leaving separately.

The couple arrived with two guy friends - who stood next to Cibrian as Rimes performed. After she finished singing, she joked that she wasn't going to be cooking a Christmas dinner because she "got into a fight with some cooking knives recently." But the couple did enjoy a meal at Katusya L.A. Live right after Rimes's performance. They dined on sashimi with jalapeño, sushi rolls and Kobe beef and drank sake and beer before ordering one of every dessert for a sweet ending to their meal. "They were very nice, cozy and had a wonderful time," says an onlooker.
When the news broke that LeAnn Rimes and Dean Sheremet had separated -- just four months after the singer was reportedly caught in an affair with actor Eddie Cibrian -- it saddened many friends who had admired their marriage and what they did for each other over the past seven years.
