VH1, you're such an enabler.
Looks like LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian found a home for their reality TV show, LeAnn & Eddie [working title], with VH1.
Thanks a lot, VH1. Someone needs to stop paying these people for making mistakes!
Back in April, the couple revealed the possibility of a reality TV show based on their "normal" (LeAnn's words, not mine) lives. After all the tabloid hoopla, the cheating couple turned spouses wanted to give the world a more accurate look at life inside the Cibrian casa.
Either way, in a lineup like Hollywood Exes, La La's Full Court Life, Love & Hip Hop, and Couples Therapy, there's a 50/50 chance this show will tank when it debuts later this year or early 2014 and go unwatched like the rest of them … or that it will do really well. Maybe even Newlyweds well.
But unlike Nick and Jessica, we won't be surprised when these two lovebirds fall out of coupledom bliss. Especially since that seems to be the tragic trend of reality show relationships.
However, what differs this time around is that we were naïve in thinking that the cameras and attention wouldn't implode Nick and Jessica's seemingly perfect pop culture love. But since LeAnn and Eddie are going into this already a mess, they might have stumbled upon the genius formula behind successful reality TV: go in with a messed up relationship and things can only get better in front of American viewers, right?
And eat your hearts out, Eddie and LeAnn. Eddie's ex Brandi Glanville is rumored to be inking her own series deal with Bravo ... about moving on from a bad relationship. I'm not psychic or anything, but I predict this ratings battle will translate into many, many more epic LeAnn/Brandi Twitter wars. Agree?
