What a cute couple right there, dean sheremet and his beautiful wife sarah. Cute. Couple that works out together works out. WE ARE GETTING A POLE,m- Apparently. He likes this pole. You're going to be on the pole in a minute. We were talking to dean a second ago about "scandal." You watch "scandal." I had to binge. My wife was into it. Oh, it's a girly show. I watched an episode and I was sucked in. I had to binge watch. I am into it. How did you two meet? We met at an airport. We were waiting for a fly. It was the first time I hadone back to my house for thanksgiving in years. We were waiting to get on a plane. She sat down next to me and we STARTED TALKING.m DID SHE KNOW WHO YOU Were? NO I DIDN'T LEAD WITH,cm HEY, Do you know? I went through a horrible divorce, remember? It was all across the tabloids. Exactly. What was your opening line? It was waiting to get into the plane. SOME KID WAS NEXT US wc#yTO. We bonded over -- there was a kid behind us hacking up a lung because he was sick. I lean forward and she leans forward. I said, obviously, we are both germaphobes. That's my opening line. How long after your split from leann did you meet her? It was about a year. Did you date in between them? People ask me, did you get married really quick? Everyone has their time living on the hard. You meet somebody and you know. When I met sarah, I automatically knew. When you met leann and you were 21 and she was 19. I met her when what is 20. You were so young. Did you know then or did you wish you knew better? Looking back, I guess I wish I knew better. All those things make you who you are. I learned a lot from that relationship. I really learned I had to take care of myself and start taking care of what my needs were, which weren't being met in that marriage. It was a big learning experience for me of what I require in a relationship. You said you were blind-sided by it. Did you not have any inkling about the affair? No. The affair -- of all the things I could have ever imagined would have happened, I never would have thought. You have that assumption the person you're with would never do something like that and how close we were, I just never saw it coming. If anyone were to have seen it. When she w home with you, it was like lovie dovy? Connected? Good conversation. There's always people fight and bicker. I never thought it would go down that road. How did you find out? Did you find out like the rest of us? Unfortunately, I found out right before the story broke. That's good. Wait, how? How did you find out? I got a call. From? "Us weekly." No. I had a call that said, from leann and said "us weekly" may or may not have a picture of me and eddie kissing? I was like, whoa, what do you mean may or may not? What does that mean? Yeah. It unfolded from there. She gave you the warning. She would never have warned you if she was never caught? The harder part was seeing it played out over the media. Something that's an intimate personal thing on the front of every magazine. My mom going to the supermarket and it's got me and leann. The old torn page. The heartbreak. Have you made up? We don't really talk. I have no animosity towards her. I have nothing but love for her. I really wish( her the best. We don't really talk that much. There is not a need to. I don't know what we would talk about. Do you feel like in retrospect looking back that maybe you dodged a bullet there and went on to a more private life. I don't know if I dodged a bullet. Every relationship you have, you learn from. THAT WAS[gc MY LEARNING EXPERIENCE Of what I needed to do to pick myself up and kind of do what I needed to do. It's hard to delineate where I stopped and leann began. We were so intertwined. What is husband, father and manager. There are so many different roles. You just want to be in love with someone. The last album she released, did you have a song on there? We did. It was a song we wrote a while ago. That is weird? I got a call from a friend of ours who I wrote the song. WITH HE SAID YOUQ-r HAVE A SONG ON The new album. I'm like, well, great. You got paid for that? No. Mail box money. It's good. You show up and there it is. Sarah is terrific. I saw you guys on the beach in laguna. What is it about her? The great thing about her is we both came into this relationship, me in a more mature place. She is a little bit older mean so she was already in a great place. We are equals. I feel like the relationship, she has her own career. She is a fashion and beauty photographer. She has an established career. She embraces everything I do. If you need to be away, go do it. I have the freedom to do way wanted to do. When we started dating, I called her up and said I'm going to be here and go here. She said whoa, whoa, whoa, you DON'T HAVE TO CHECKPyñ IN WITH ME. I'm not your mom. Yeah, right. Do what I want to do. Is it annoying, I don't know if that's the right word, that we are still asking about leann? No. It's fine. I really have laid low during the whole thing. It's part of my story. It's the reason -- I get to do awesome cooking segments for you. Whatever it is that gets me in the door is fine. It's my job to show you that I'm really a chef. I wasn't just leann rimes ex-husband. I'm a legitimate chef. Jean george. Into the house. You work with michelle obama. I do. Anti-obesity campaign. I do. There is an amazing organization inled wellness in schools. I get to teach kids that some of the schools I go to are 60%9s÷eñ the poverty level. These kids -- I asked one kid. I was doing a demo on spinach. Do you know who popeye is? Yeah, the chicken. That's your reference for it. Getting kids to get their hands dirty and doing roof top gardens and showing them harvests and how to have a great connection with real food. That's the most exciting thing for me. I've been so fortunate. It's great to be in a position to give back. Dean, you're such a good guy. Smart, nice. I'm so happy things are working out. That's when I bumped into him on the beach. We are going to go to the LIVE KITCHEN AND LEARN HOW TOre Make the quinoa and turkey stuffed bell pepper. I picture myself lean and
