Eddie Cibrian is speaking out for the first time since his split from wife Brandi Glanville.

"What I do know is when you reach a certain point in your career you're placed in this unfair fishbowl," he tells Entertainment Tonight. "Things unfortunately get magnified."

In July, Glanville, 36-year-old mother of Cibrian's two children, Mason, 6, and Jake, 2, told Us Weekly she had left the actor, 36, because of his extramarital affairs.

Us Weekly first reported in March that Cibrian and then-married LeAnn Rimes had an affair while shooting a Lifetime movie.

Reports of Cibrian having another fling, with 24-year-old model Scheana Marie Jancan, surfaced in July.

And, as Us Weekly also reported, he had still not cooled things off with Rimes. They were seen again together in the early afternoon of July 17. (In late July, Us reported that Rimes and husband Dean Sheremet had separated.)

"We are all human, we are all not perfect," Cibrian tells ET. "The fact is I love my family dearly, and I'm a great father. It just saddens me that this is hurtful and being played out publicly."
