CSI:Miami star Eddie Cibrian (soon to star in the upcoming Hallmark Channel original movie Healing Hands) and country crooner LeAnn Rimes hit the jackpot when they took a chance of love, and it was plain to see that the charismatic couple held not only cards but each other’s hearts at the 8th Annual World Poker Tour Celebrity Invitational, which was held February 20th at Commerce Casino near Los Angeles, California.
The lovebirds were just two of the more than 100 luminaries who have helped to raise $100,000 by using their star wattage to shine a spotlight on Chrysalis, a charity which aids both the economically disadvantaged and the homeless in their search for work. According to CelebrityGoodLife.com, Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher dined on a grilled cheese and fries as the tournament continued into the wee, small hours of February 21st, and generously ordered rounds for her poker-playing pals.
Was lady luck kind to paparazzi magnet players Eric Dane of Grey’s Anatomy, Jenny McCarthy, Shannon Elizabeth and Entourage‘s Jerry Ferrara? The finals of the invitational will be held March 3rd.
