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.

I’m just going to present this to you all without commentary. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have a new VH1 reality series called simply LeAnn & Eddie and it looks… awful. And staged. And awful. Did I say that one already?
Will you hate-watch?

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian have a relationship built on mutual infidelity and a desperate need for drama and publicity, so you know things are going to work out for these two. So much so that they’re getting their own reality show to prove to the world just what a great couple they are and how awesome their lives are.
From US Weekly:
Cibrian — possibly alluding to his ex-wife Brandi Glanville’s Real Housewives filming — joked, “I mean, look. You can expect a lot of drinking and a lot of fights and we throw a lot of s— at each other and it’s a debacle. It’s horrible.”
“It’s like every other reality show,” added Rimes. “There’s a lot of heart to it but there’s also a lot of laughs. Eddie and I are very much that way in our relationship. We have a lot of humor between the two of us and give each other s— a lot, so you see that.”
“People read about us constantly and it’s so opposite of who we are,” the singer said of her relationship, which started on less-than-favorable circumstances after Cibrian cheated with Rimes on Glanville five years ago. “I think people really think we take ourselves seriously,” Rimes continued. “It’s so opposite of that but no one ever gets to see it. Other than the reason of us wanting to work together and be home with the kids, why not have fun and poke fun at everything that’s gone on for the last five years.”
Viewers will soon learn that these two are in it for the long haul. “Honestly it’s not giving up on each other,” Rimes said of her marriage. “I think that plays a really big part,” added Cibrian. “You gotta have faith, and we have faith in our relationship.”
Oh, brother. I believe these two are made for each other, absolutely… because they’re both awful hot messes. Do I think they’re going to last forever? Fat chance. This TV show is going to be a failure – if Lindsay Lohan can’t even get viewers for her trainwreck of a show, these two have no chance – but whatever, let them bomb.

Why on earth anyone would ever want a piece of Eddie Cibrian is beyond me, but I suppose old habits die hard. We all know Brandi Glanville lost her damn mind after Eddie cheated on her/left her for LeAnn Rimes. She charged her vaginal rejuvination to his credit card, hit the plastic surgeon again, “wrote” a book and started spouting serious fuckery left and right on social media and to anyone else who would listen to her. It’s been… a journey (and LeAnn is no better, clearly).
Anyway, Brandi’s latest revelation is that Eddie apparently still wants her and that LeAnn is nothing more than a “backup plan”. Oh, girl, no – grow a clue and some dignity, because this is not a good look. Even if you want to indulge in some insanity in your private life to make yourself feel better about how things have turned out, you don’t put it on Twitter!
He's my EX- so do I really want him or am I ok with him telling Me how much he LUUUVS ME but is gonna chill with his "backupplan"#nothot

I’m not quite sure what’s going on, but someone needs to pop a tranquilizer and turn off the laptop for a while, I think.

Hold the obvious jokes that are sure to spring to mind when I tell you that LeAnn Rimes has TMJ and frequently pops her jaw out of place, because it’s central to this story. The jaw-popping happened during a concert in Oklahoma on Sunday night.
You see, LeAnn usually comes out to do several songs as part of her encore but she had to abort that mission when her jaw went wacko and she could no longer sing. Judging from some more recent performances, maybe that’s not such a bad thing.
She apologized via Twitter later, as you do, but don’t worry – she’ll be terrorizing our eardrums again in no time, I’m sure!
Oklahoma!!!! I love you so much! I'm sorry for no encore. I had my jaw pop out of place & I can't hear out of my left ear. #tmjsucks

Before she decided to be a cheating harlot, LeAnn Rimes was married to a nice young gent named Dean Sheremet. She then decided she really wanted The D from Eddie Cibrian, he cheated on his wife to give it to her and the rest, as they say, is history. I don’t think LeAnn and Dean have spoken since their divorce, really, but the words they’re exchanging now aren’t all that friendly. Apparently LeAnn retweeted a photo of herself and Sheremet the other day, which the original poster had captioned: “Remember the good old days when @leannrimes was just a chubby country bumpkin married to a gay dude?”
To be fair, I think calling her a “chubby country bumpkin” is more offensive than the gay bit, because as Dean himself later pointed out, being gay isn’t offensive. In any case, LeAnn responded to it with a whole barrel of laughter, which Dean didn’t take too kindly to, and then LeAnn said she was only laughing at herself and then she had to clarify that she’s not homophobic and blah blah, what’s wrong with these people?
Laugh away-Who's the bully now?

In fact, Dean actually isn’t gay (well, unless he’s really committed to bearding, which seems unlikely) as he got re-married a couple of years ago. But seriously, who would care if he was?
