LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian: New Reality Show Brings More Trash to TV

By: Kimberly Ripley - June 23, 2014

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian will soon have their own reality TV show, and just from viewing the first trailer released it’s abundantly clear that all they’re providing viewers with is more trash. In the trailer they’re already bashing Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville and admitting that when they fell in love they were both married to other people. This will definitely be a show rooted in strong morals–something they should be proud one day for their children to see.

“We were both married to other people…now who we really are is a couple and in love,” Cibrian says in the trailer. Rimes goes on to say they’re just “trying to figure out how to navigate this family … that’s highly publicized.”

Part of why it’s so ‘highly publicized’ is because when these two–the stars of LeAnn & Eddie–began their illicit romance, she was married to Dean Sheremet and he was married to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. That does not a non-publicized romance make.

The fact that children are involved in this sordid mix that will soon play out on TV adds a trash factor that simply shouldn’t be allowed. Eddie Cibrian’s sons Mason and Jake are 11 and 7, respectively. Then, of course, there’s the notion of LeAnn Rimes bearing children of her own, with Eddie Cibrian, of course.

“Eddie and I have talked about having kids and waiting for the right time. I’m 31 and my mom had fertility issues,” Rimes admits, adding, “I know Eddie isn’t quite ready but this could be my only opportunity to have a child.”


LeAnn Rimes, of course, came on to the music scene as a young teenager with a powerful voice. She delighted fans with songs like ‘How Can I Live.’ Those who don’t subscribe to the notion of reality shows must look at her today and wonder what on earth happened.

Trash mongers can rest assured they haven’t missed a single moment of LeAnn & Eddie. The show doesn’t premiere until July 17th on VH1. Fortunately it doesn’t air until 10:30 PM, meaning young, impressionable minds–including Eddie Cibrian’s children–will hopefully be safely tucked away in their beds.

The release of this initial trailer for LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s upcoming reality TV show begs one question and one question only. Why?

    SO, we already know this show will fail, so cancel it before it begins. These two are sickening and very TRASHY. Ewww!

  • lovemymets

    Can’t wait until these two idiots reap what they’ve sown. They’ll be broke and crying about it in no time.

  • lovemymets

    One can only hope she can’t have children — at least not by this gigolo. His kids being messed up is more than the world can handle. They don’t need to add to it.

  • guest

    Hopefully they will fall victim to the reality show curse on marriages and split up and then GO AWAY!

    • ~~~♥♥HARLEYLOVER♥♥~~~

      Fingerss crossed!!!

  • observer

    the sad thing is, if this relationship didn’t bother his ex anymore, their marriage would probably be over. Its seems like what is keeping them together is their desire to anger and humiliate his ex. Give it up, you are sad people.

    • TereH

      So true. All the more reason why LeAnn needs to keep goading Brandi into stuff.

    • guesting

      I agree, except I don’t think Brandi really cares about their marriage. I think her kids are the sticking point. They use the kids against her, like tweeting about an accident that took a kid to the ER and not bothering to tell her. Or putting the kids on a speedboat without lifejackets. Or getting the little one on a bike without training wheels for the first time on a main road and no helmet, while videoing him instead of staying beside him. Or giving them BB guns. Or showing up at one’s school to sing for PARENTS’ day and then tweeting the name of the school. It’s quite a list, and I didn’t even scratch the surface.

    • Didi

      Very true. He is still emotionally connected to Brandi and his anger shows it. Anger is passion. Indifference means moving on.

  • Brahm Mauer

    Don’t they realize what happens to the relationships of people who do “reality” shows? Just look a the Hogans (divorce), J. Simpson (divorces), Khartrashians (divorces – 3). I’m sure I’m missing some others but you get the point.

    • TereH

      Yes, but Eddie and LeAnn are DIFFERENT, doncha see? The normal rules, consequences, reality of making choices doesn’t apply to them. They’re very SPEC-ial.

  • REDSKINS

    Can’t wait for either one of them to cheat on the other, now that would be a great show to watch.In the mean time when the show airs turn on reruns of Gilligans Island

  • pwrserge

    Eddie Cibrian is a total and complete CAD. He betrayed his wife and his children by having an affair with a woman who equaled his inability to be true to his marriage vows. How dare he leave the mother of his two small children because he “fell in love with someone else?” But leaving her to fend alone was not enough for Eddie. He continues to belittle the woman he cheated, the mother of his children. Is there anything worse than a man who gangs up on his ex with his new wife? Does he not know that we all see him for what he is? Brandi, his ex, has a reason to badmouth him… he, however, has no right to belittle his ex, other than because he is no gentleman and has no class. Any efforts he extends to make us hate Brandi will only backfire on him and his home wrecker wife.

    • Cyndi Erickson

      I’m pretty sure this is all LeAnn’s idea – she’s the one with the mental issues :/ Eddie, he’s just a no talent cheating slob.

    • tym2go

      Doesn’t it make you wonder where their parents are? I know they are already adults but wow couldn’t they advise them to show respect and class? They probably wouldn’t dare because Leannn is supporting them. The money would stop coming.

      • Didi

        Yep. LeAnn most likely bankrolls all of them, why would they.

    • LeAnn & Eddie Fan

      The bitch Brandi had her own affairs and Brandi and Eddie weren’t living together at the time of the “Affair”, and Dean was remarried way before LeAnn and Eddie got married, so apparently he was no Angel either. So keep your Good Damn fucking hillbilly comments to yourself. until you can lead a perfect life, don’t judge others you fucking whore!

      • guest

        You have serious issues…

        • Cyndi Erickson

          LOL, she does sound kind of psycho too. Birds (fans) of a feather flock together. BTW, what is Good Damn?

      • Tired of Leann’s BS

        LeAnn, I thought you were supposed to be enjoying that Hawaiian vacation of yours. Or did you pay Ginger to comment on here on your behalf? Sounds like you are privy to inside information that, if true, makes you an insider, no?

      • tamra

        This has to be posted by one of the relatives of the two pinheads. We have an oppion because the little weirdo opened that door. And, the info you are reporting is wrong. Eddie did not want to leave Brandi. Leann simply saw to it. Maybe you can be there for her when it happens to her.

      • guesting

        Holy cow, what a nut. Brandi and Eddie were married and together at the time of the affair- even Leann and Eddie admit it. Leann was married to Dean who did not cheat on her and had the right to remarry once they were divorced. Leann was in a relationship with another man BEFORE she left her husband… even she says that. However, if they respected Brandi as a mother and simply lived a quiet life where Brandi and Eddie coparented, there would be a lot more peace. The karma train has stopped where it’s supposed to.

      • Didi

        Brandi and Eddie certainly were living together and happily married. If they weren’t, why would Brandi go visit him on set when he was filming Northern Lights & go on a double date with the Hillbilly & Dean? Brandi never cheated on Eddie. He cheated, contracted HPV and passed it on to his wife and now, most likely LeAnn too, and you support a man like that? LeAnn may now spend the rest of her life worrying about getting cervical cancer one day because her current husband is a PIG. Who’s the whore now? You are no fan of hers, just an enabler. If you were a fan, you would want better for her, so eff off dirty mouth.

      • ~~~♥♥HARLEYLOVER♥♥~~~

        Calm down Leann! You’re the w hore!!

      • phcalef

        Let me get this right. Because Dean married first that means he was cheating? OK. Brandi & Eddie were separated at the time Fleann hooked up with Ediot. Then how did Dean & FleAnn double date with Brandi & Ediot? You really need to check your sources. And yes, I mean the little voices in your head.

      • MeBtalkin2u

        Check yo facts dill hole

      • Guest

        BS. Eddie was absolutely living with Brandi & his family when cheating. So stop defending yourself, LeAnn. You are a Sociopath. If he cheated with you, he’s cheating on you.

  • Lindsey Mozzo

    Not having more kids is the smartest thing Mr. Cibrian has done. You know they won’t stay together, you know he will stray again. He knows it too. The only reason they could possibly even want to do a reality show is to put their relationship in Ms. Glanville’s face. While I don’t mind that (can’t stand her and quit watching Bravo because of it), I won’ be tuning in.

  • Kris

    We need to start a petition to stop this show before it’s started…#StopLeAnnAndEddie

    • LeAnn Fan

      can we petition your mouth to shut the fuck up before you open it?

      Get a life, and get a clue…

      • Tired of Leann’s BS

        LeAnn Fan = Clueless. I would suggest that you read the First Amendment. Opinions are constitutionally protected. So is reality tv — so enjoy that shitfest that we know you’ll be drooling over.

        • tamra

          Dont’ worry – it is either Leann or her mother. She does not have that many fans,

      • Cyndi Erickson

        Kind of funny that the whole two LeAnn fans have a really dirty mouth. Trash??? Yeh, I’m thinking so…

        • tamra

          Yeap… Too True…. Look how classy! Way to go

      • tamra

        If you are so Leann and Eddie – put your name out there. Or, are you bo hoooooo scared… Come on! Let us really know who you are. And, when you refer to hillbillies – try talking to the girl on Leann’s fab show.. You know the one that keeps saing “in a hot minuet”. Redneck for sure.

        • MeBtalkin2u

          Seriously has that person seen Leann’s fans?! Hillbilly is an understatement!!!

      • guesting

        People are entitled to their opinions. Shhh, calm down.

      • MeBtalkin2u

        Bahaha…..you tried

    • tamra

      I’ll sing it.

      • tamra

        sign, lol

    • Didi

      How about ya just don’t watch it?

  • http://top10-university-usa.blogspot.com/ Tabong

    Oh! Can’t wait.

  • Freda

    Cibrian is a douche, and his wife is a nutjob.

  • Shappish

    I’m surprised when it comes to L. R. (don’t want type her trashy name) she is criticized for being a marriage wrecker but AJ is given all honours and praises after also wrecking a marriage. The 2 should be treated with equal prejudice.

    • Lisa

      When is the last time you read about Brad & Angelina’s affair on Angie’s twitter feed? Or saw a twitter war between Angie & Jennifer? Exactly …..NEVER! Angelia Jolie is too busy being a loving fiancé, mother of 6, an actress with a continuing successful career, ( not one that was stunted in her late teens/early 20’s), and being a humanitarian to even log into Twitter. Angie is as deep as the ocean, Leann is about as deep as a standard hotel bathtub. Maybe that’s part of the reason Angelina is given some slack. Plus Brad did not have any children with Anniston. Only ADULTS were affected by that situation. There are a 100 reasons why the two scenarios are not even comparable. The #1 reason being the difference between Angie’s behavior & LeAnn’s behavior after the affairs.

    • guesting

      AJ hasn’t stalked, harassed and bullied the woman whose life she wrecked. She doesn’t use someone’s kids as pawns in a vicious war that’s only in her head. What she did sucks, but it would have faded if she wasn’t constantly attempting to be the third parent and push Brandi out of her own kids’ lives.

    • Didi

      Hillbilly vs Humanitarian? Taunting ex-wife vs respecting ex wife publicly? That’s the difference.

  • Ginny Schrag

    Shippish, I can usually figure out who people are, but could you give me a first name in your reference to AJ? Thank you.

    • Lisa

      Angelina Jolie is who the person was referring to.

  • georgie

    They didn’t begin their relationship by “falling in love” while married. They screwed each other while on set & then Leann stalked the shit out of Eddie when he tried to return to his family. Brandi finally kicked him out when his OTHER mistress Schaena sold her story.

    • tym2go

      You’re right. Eddie wouldn’t be with Leann if Brandi hadn’t kicked him out and she knows it.

    • LeAnn Fan

      what kind of drugs do you do???

      • tamra

        If that isnit true – tell us.. But you know it is.. So, shush! And maybe you should ask Leann that question. lolololol

      • Didi

        Your denial is sad DG. You do realize LeAnn doesn’t give a crap about you or any of the twitter huggers don’t you? I’m sure she laughs and mocks all of you with Eddie. That’s the difference btwn LeAnn & Brandi fans. LeAnn fans are needy & actually delusional and think LeAnn would hang with them in real life, where Brandi fans just support her woman to woman and enjoy her on RHOBH but don’t whine and beg her for *hugs*. Try getting out more.

      • phcalef

        Apparently not real good ones since I still see you.

    • tamra

      Amen sista! Way to set the record straight. Did you read this you Leann and Eddie fan. Get your facts straight before you start acting like you know it all – just like your blonde girlfriend.

    • jessd

      I bet she made him phrase it that way, that they fell in love, didn’t seem like he was so in love and her soulmate when he was begging his wife not to leave and still banging his other mistress!

  • LTK

    The both look like trailer trash and have no reason other then to slam Brandi and put her down. I am not a Brandi fan, but Leanne is a home wrecker and I don’t have any respect for her or Eddie. It will end before it starts I hope!

  • mickey710

    And Handy Brandi continues to give them material for the show, on an almost daily basis! It is hilarious! As if the amount of recorded documentation of BG being stumbling down drunk, making many racist, sexist and highly inappropriate statements, etc., was not enough— just the other day Handy was on HER podcast calling her7 yo son several vile names,boasting about his inappropriate sexual activities with several “chicks”, predicting rehab in his future and comparing his older brother as the good one, who will ALWAYS be her baby.
    EC should have opened his mouth years ago. Hopefully his next stop will be family court.

    • guesting

      Brandi was joking around on an adult podcast- a lot of comedians do. Keep it in context. Eddie and Leann went to soccer games, making out and grabbing each others’ privates in front of his kids and other people’s kids. There are photos of it, and photos of Leann grabbing Eddie’s privates in front of his kids on the beach. Other photos show her crushing Jake under her as she leans over Eddie to make out. She was photographed on a balcony, stripping her clothing off and making out with a family friend while the kids were inside. She took Jake out to teach him to ride without training wheels on a main road without a helmet, and was busy videoing him and screaming, “FASTER!” instead of watching him. Recently, she posted photos of the boys on a speedboat without lifejackets. Family court, you say?

    • Mebtalkin2u

      Mickey Mouse! Stop drinking the koolaid yo!

  • Tired of Leann’s BS

    Why? Because they are both infatuated with their own image in the mirror, that’s why. Brandi has her own issues, but if there is a victim and a villain, she does not fall in the “villain” role no matter how much LeAnn’s fans want to try to make it Brandi’s fault. The only one who had a right to speak out from the get-go was Brandi. LeAnn and Eddie dug their own graves by LeAnn’s twitter obsession (almost 76,000 tweets since March 2009), obsession with copying Brandi’s every move, and Eddie’s pathological lying. If the youngest son is acting out, ask yourself — who taught him to lie? (Eddie.) Who taught him to disrespect his mother? (LeAnn.) So *mickey710* go on with your “family court” BS. I would love him and LeAnn to file for full custody, drop a few more hundreds of thousands in legal fees, and end up with their trucker hats out for pennies on LA’s city streets when they lose that petition.

  • Lola Mouse

    As much as I despise Rimes I am glad they did this show. It makes them BOTH look like epic tools! Prize pig Ed will never get another acting gig, EVER, He sucks at acting anyway, but now his “image” is completely in the toilet! Have fun with that Ed! LOL Rime is just psycho, so I look forward to her public meltdown. Karma bitch!

    • Cyndi Erickson

      LOL why would he want to work anyway? She’s paying for his company :)

  • Deneice Holbert

    Yea that is another show I will not be watching. Train wreck trailer trash. smdh

    • tamra

      The show I want to see – is Leann pulling herself off the floor after she realzes Eddie is leaving her for another.. Hopefully, this one will have looks

  • alyce1213

    Trash. Karma will do its work.

  • Bob

    After 17 years of knowing LeAnn…. What you see will be all scripted and full of lies!!! No one cares anymore…. You reap what you sow….

  • marcusm

    Eddie already has two kids by Brandi. If a guy says he isn’t ready then he’s really saying you know what? I’m doing my time and I ain’t adding to it.

  • Out For Justice!

    To the writer, you are a know nothing fucking twit, with an IQ of a rock!

    Who the fuck are you to judge others? you cannot even quote one of LeAnn’s songs without fucking it up…. so maybe you should shut the fuck up!

    It’s “How Do I Live”, not “How Can I Love”. Isn’t an author supposed to do her/his research before opening their mouths?! Apparently you didn’t get the memo.

    And also, LeAnn and Brandi haven’t been “feuding” in over a year, so maybeit’s time the media get off their high horse and know that all the negative attention is just a waste of time, energy, and money, and its effecting the kids more than the adults.

    So, with that said, Have a good day, and I hope you rot in hell for your sins and your columns go unnoticed by everyone, and you somehow end up on the streets of Iraq. :)

    • Cyndi Erickson

      Ok, I already hated LeAnn horseface, but reading the bs you post here just as a fan of hers is enough to convince me I hate her for a reason. $$$$ can’t change the trash level.

      • tamra

        Its Leann posting.. She has no fans

    • tamra

      Ok Leann – we got it… LOLOLOL.. Bye the way, maybe you should learn the words to your song before you perform.. And, we judge you because that is what you asked for. You wil never ever touch the looks of Brandi.. Eddie did not want you, until you showed him your checkbook.

    • guesting

      Good heavens, aren’t you lovely? Is having an opinion against your religion? It’s affecting the kids, not effecting. Something can have an effect, but it affects others. I think meditating might help.

    • Guest

      Hi, LeAnn! Nice of you to join us.

  • Out For Justice!

    And to all the haters on here… Grow The Fuck Up! You people act like you’re better than God! I’m sure almost everyone on here has cheated on someone in their lives… whether you admit itor not. Whether intentional or not.

    If you didn’t cheat, I know you sinned… Just get your fucking heads out of your asses and stop judging others, none of you are perfect, so quit acting as if you are!

    Go back to watching TMZ, and those fat ass crackwhore Kardashians, and their mom’s trani husband, and don’t forget LeAnn and Eddie, because I’m sure all of you will tune in… all of you reality show lovers are all the same… you love a good fight and bad tv!

    It’s people like you that make me proud not to have cable! And Fyi, I cannot stand reality shows, I like who-done-its and comedies.

    • Cyndi Erickson

      Another LeAnn fan with a filthy dirty mouth. Hmmmm, I’m seeing a trend here. Must be LeAnn posting again.

    • tamra

      Then why did you participate in one, Leann

    • tamra

      LOL, at least you got that right. Their show is and will be considered BAD TV!

    • Guest

      Intentional? Can you accidentally cheat on someone? Woops! My junk fell into her junk! How did that happen?

    • guesting

      If you hate reality shows, then why are you defending Leann, sweetie? She’s on one. I have never cheated on anyone in my life, and I think most people can say the same. Perhaps a quick google of Leann’s behavior around two children that aren’t hers would help you understand why Leann is loathed, and her husband is, too. You don’t use a reality show to insult the mother of those two children. How do you think they feel?

  • Tired of Leann’s BS

    Wow, dude “Out for Justice”, get off the Internet and stop reading articles about reality tv. And way to go on casting that first stone! Love the hypocrisy. Now sit down, turn off your computer (which is apparently your own personal boob-tube), and relax before you have a coronary.

  • guesting

    Leann and Eddie do an evil thing every time they bash Brandi. She is the mother of his children, and he already cheated on her and has the kids half the time. Instead of saying, look, I screwed up and was a crappy husband, but I respect you as a parent, he spends his time bullying Brandi and making sure Leann does as well. They refuse to communicate with Brandi about the kids. They are incredibly inappropriate in front of the kids, making out and being hypersexual- I will never forget the pictures of her helping the kids bury Eddie in the sand and then grabbing his crotch while they watched. Or making out at the kids’ games. Or climbing over Jake so they could kiss. Or Leann taking her clothes off on a balcony and making out with a friend while Eddie took pictures and the kids were inside. Or using Brandi’s own kids as tools in a war that they started. Now they have a reality show based around their hatred of Brandi? SICK. The older boy is 11 and knows what’s going on- what will he think? Do they even care? Leann is getting everything she deserves and more. Their careers are gone and their self respect is following. The karmic post office delivered.

    • jessd

      I agree completely, it’s obvious she doesn’t care about his kids, and that he doesn’t want kids with her. Their obsession with Brandi is borderline insane, if they were so happy they wouldn’t need to prove it, and she wouldn’t be on twitter 24/7.

  • looloo polo

    These two disingenuous sleazeballs actually re-shot footage, apparently, so that they could work more nasty shots about Brandi G. into their disgrace of a reality show. The woman who is now working more jobs than the two of them combined to support her children. The same children, of course, whose home was broken by Rimes and Cibrian. It is OBVIOUS that LAR and EC have no shame…and if VH1 actually provides a platform for their bashing of a single mother…they haven’t any, either.
    Just disgraceful…

  • Tired of Leann’s BS

    Okay, official VH1 twitter page dedicated to this new sh*tshow has 1451 followers. Leann Rimes’ twitter page has 554,000 (paid) followers. Hmmm, something does not compute. C’mon LeAnn, you can afford to buy another 552,549 followers for the VH1 page before July 17th, can’t you? Can’t you???

    • ~~~♥♥HARLEYLOVER♥♥~~~

      Exactly, 554,000 YET only 11,000 people bought her shitfire album. Bwahahahahauahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

    • Mebtalkin2u

      I noticed that too!!!

  • Tired of Leann’s BS

    Interesting that after LeAnn begged her followers to follow the Vh1 page in a show of support, the number increased by less than 200 after she tweeted. C’mon folks! Where’s your loyalty? Where’s your dollars? Why can’t you help LeAnn buy viewers? What the heck is wrong with you? Oh, that’s right, FAIL. And fail again.

  • Didi

    “I know Eddie isn’t quite ready but this could be my only opportunity to have a child.” — Because by the time he bankrupts me dry and leaves me, no one will want me anymore & I will be too old.

    He was certainly ready with his first wife to have TWO children. Doesn’t that tell you something LeAnn? He doesn’t want a lifelong connection with you once your money dries up.

  • Tired of Leann’s BS

    Does anyone else notice how much LeAnn lies about stupid insignificant things. A few days ago LeAnn tweeted: “I just love working out. I’m weird.” Then in an interview that took place just days before, she says “I work out a lot…I keep it interesting because it’s not like something I love.” This is a woman who has lied her entire adult life, and cannot keep her lies straight. A mark of a sociopath.

    • ~~~♥♥HARLEYLOVER♥♥~~~

      It’s fun when one calls her out on her OWN LIES.

  • Melissa

    LeAnn was way off everyone’s radar when this affair happened. She’s only back in the spotlight for negative reasons, but doesn’t seem to understand that. She wrote an entire album about the affair that bombed horribly and now she and her perpetually out of work, rapidly aging, husband are doing what they both claimed only losers do. A reality show. They both arrogantly said they would never have to sink to doing a reality show, because they are both so very talented. What happened? Are they desperate for cash? Eddie’s only with her for her money and this debacle isn’t going to win them any new fans. It looks so fake and the bashing of his kid’s Mother is really disgusting. What are they mad at her for? They were the adulterers who ruined two marriages and families. Was she supposed to crawl off and die? I honestly think that Eddie’s anger at his ex for kicking him out and LeAnn’s anger at her for not disappearing completely and obsession with becoming her physically, are the only things keeping this couple together. I think that the back lash they are going to get, will have permanent, damaging effects oh their already screwed up relationship.

      Well said! Very true.
