LeAnn and Eddie’s relationship has been highly publicized from the start, but now the couple are setting the record straight about their love on their brand new VH1 reality show, ‘LeAnn & Eddie.’ In a revealing new interview, they open up about everything from why they finally decided to have their own show to the possibility of expanding their family — nothing if off-limits!
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are an open book. On their new reality show, LeAnn & Eddie, the couple will give viewers a raw and “honest” glimpse into their exciting lives. Between juggling their successful careers, family, friends and of course their marriage, these two are always on the go — and now they’re taking fans with them!
Eddie Cibrian & LeAnn Rimes Reality Show: They’ll Talk Affair On ‘LeAnn & Eddie’
The gorgeous and fun-loving couple looked happier and more in love than ever at the premiere of their new VH1 show, LeAnn & Eddie, at The Attic Rooftop in New York City on July 15.
When the couple met in 2008, they were both married, and their affair was highly publicized by the media. Both stars admit that they have been approached multiple times about doing a reality show, but now they feel that it’s finally the right time for the public to see inside their relationship.
“I think we met the right producers, we were just meeting with producers to see what we could do,” LeAnn explains. “We actually wanted to do a full scripted show because we thought our life was one big joke, so we were like, ‘Hey, we can make this really funny.’ We ended up on the non-scripted side, I think this is really a hybrid show. The thing that you get through the whole show, the thing that people want and need to see, is how we interact, our relationship, and that’s the honesty of the show.”
Always staying positive, LeAnn adds, “We had this idea of poking fun of almost everything. It’s been over five years, it’s time to laugh about it. The situation is not laughable, but at the same time, everything that has been written about the situation is hysterical.”
Despite all the controversy that has surrounded their relationship, it’s amazing to hear Eddie and LeAnn’s side of things. It’s clear that they really do love one another and make such a great couple — plus, they’re highly entertaining!
LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian Open Up About Having Children
Eddie has two children with his ex-wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandy Glanville, but LeAnn admits that she and her husband of more than two years frequently discuss the idea of expanding their family.
“We talk about it often, we have very serious conversations about it,” LeAnn reveals. “It’s just such a crazy thing to juggle at this moment, but if it happened … I just said that the other day, I was sick to my stomach and my friend was like, ‘Maybe you’re pregnant.’ I’m like, ‘Aww!'”
The country crooner admits, “That’s how we are with each other, we talk about it honestly and seriously a lot and I think it will happen. Life is interesting — you never know what is going to happen and what isn’t going to happen.”
Although Eddie’s sons, Mason and Jake, are clearly a big part of both his and LeAnn’s lives, we will not be seeing them on the show.
“No, the kids won’t be on the show,” Eddie says. “Both of us kind of made it a point when we were talking about the idea of doing a show that they were never going to be a part of it.”
That said, Eddie assures us, “You get the sense, obviously, of how we are as parents, and what we have to deal with as a family. But to put them in front of the camera is pointless, I want them to be kids and enjoy their life.”
We will definitely be tuning in when LeAnn & Eddie premieres on Thursday, July 17 on VH1 at 10:30 p.m ET/PT. How about YOU, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited to learn more about LeAnn and Eddie’s lives? Let us know!
