LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian Want to Show You a Sitcom
But it's not just any sitcom -- it's not like they want to sit down and watch some "Friends" reruns or anything -- it's a sitcom based on LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian's lives. In which the roles of LeAnn and Eddie are played by LeAnn and Eddie. Why?!
A source has spoken with Us Weekly about the situation, and apparently the deal is that LeAnn and Eddie "have been shopping around a scripted comedy based on their lives together." As of now, they've allegedly "met with a few networks," but sadly "nothing is finalized yet." With a gem of an idea like this though, how could it not get picked up?
But let's review a few more details of the show: even though this wacky couple wants to play themselves, Eddie's sons aren't going to involved. And Brandi Glanville probably won't be involved either, even though "the show will have a crazy ex-wife." Of course.
So just to bring everything together, what's happening is that LeAnn and Eddie have created their own story of their lives, a story that is based in reality but definitely not completely true so that they appear sympathetic and just generally awesome, and they want you to see it and believe it. That's a fair assumption, right? After all, if this show comes to be, it's not like we're going to see LeAnn spend days on end on Twitter in a bikini, you know? And that's as real as it gets.
