LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have their own VH1 reality show at the moment, and it’s completely shit. It’s more banal moments from the lives of two C-list (at best) celebrities who are desperate to be seen while pretending that they’re totally put out by what little attention they actually still receive.
While appearing at the TCA fall previews, these idiots said a lot of stupid shit that I will now share with you:
“Everyone’s used our lives as entertainment and so we wanted to actually kind of take our life back,” Rimes told reporters Friday at VH1’s Television Critics Association fall previews.
“We definitely hit on the tabloid fodder because that’s what surrounded our lives so much in the past five years,” Rimes said. “I think we’re really kidding ourselves with the illusion of a private life because it’s very hard.”
“If [the tabloids] want to stop writing about us, then we won’t have to set the record straight anymore,” he said. “[It] gave us an opportunity to do something fun, work together and at the same time, what’s really real about the show is our relationship. You’ll see how we interact with one another.”
“We’ve both gone through a lot of private things with the public eyes watching. … Eddie and I really have coped with it all by laughing,” Rimes said. “People think we take ourselves super seriously and we don’t.”
“Ultimately, this is a comedy. That’s kind of how we go about our life as well; we laugh, and it really helps,” Cibrian added. “It’s a show not about real dysfunction or exploitation. It’s a fun show to watch and you laugh and that’s kind of the area we wanted to explore.”
“We thought we were going to be more protective of the final cut but we kind of let the final product breathe on its own,” Cibrian said. “There are some things that are kind of embarrassing that we left on the show because we thought it was funny. We really didn’t censor ourselves that much.”
Please stop trying to convince us that you’re so cool and awesome, because it will never happen. No one cares (or believes) that you’re so down-to-earth and don’t take yourselves seriously or anything like that. You’re walking disasters. Ugh.
