LeAnn Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian have been focal points in the media for years now, ever since news of their affair broke and "Real Housewives" star Brandi Glanville--who was married to Cibrian at the time--engaged in a "feud" with the country singer. Over the years, Glanville and Rimes have taken to Twitter to battle it out, and Glanville even wrote about her relationship with the couple in her book, Drinking And Dating.

“It’s been five years now since I discovered my ex-husband was sleeping with half of the women in Hollywood …sometimes it feels like just yesterday that my ex and my baby boys were snuggling on the couch with me in our gorgeous Calabasas home,” Glanville wrote. “Other times, it feels like it was all a crazy dream …but I have three permanent reminders of my marriage that I live with every day…(her sons) Mason, Jake, and HPV.”

It's not clear how Glanville feels about the upcoming reality show which will star Rimes and Cibrian, but the couple talked about it recently and said they have been easy targets for the media ever since news of their affair began to spread.

“We’re both a little dumbfounded by it. They broke the story [of our affair] back in the day, and it’s been a constant feeding frenzy — I guess we’re easy targets," Rimes said.

Cibrian says the new show will focus on a side of the couple that fans rarely see, and won't be a drama unlike his wife's show.

“This [show] will offer a glimpse into our self-depricating, fun side. The tone is very much that of a docu-com — not a docu-soap, where you see a lot of drinking and wine-throwing," he said.

LeAnn And Eddie will premiere on VH1 on July 18.
