Well, the first promos for LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s VH1 show are out and… I don’t know how to feel, y’all. The promos aren’t assorted trailers of highlights from all the exciting things that are going to happen during the show. The promos are just three scenes, pretty straight-forward, of LeAnn and Eddie in assorted situations:
It just feels sort of sad. I guess we’re supposed to think it’s cute that (“aw”) LeAnn wants a baby and Eddie keeps saying no. But it just seems sad. LeAnn seems to be thinking about babies a lot and Eddie is with his friends and all they’re talking about is how easy it is to pick up girls? Eddie seems almost wistful. But instead of, say, believing that Eddie is clueless about single life, I’m just reminded of the fact that Eddie has never had a problem picking up women. He had affairs when he was married to Brandi and I’m sure he’s fooling around on LeAnn. Eddie knows this too, so he had to utilize his acting skillz to pretend that he’s not good at picking up ladies.
Other notes… I’m kind of surprised by the “quality” of the production, I guess. For some reason, I thought the production value would be way down, like it would be a lot of sketchy digital crap trying to look auteurish. But this is Kardashian-level reality show production value. Which just goes to show you… this is not a reality show. These are little scripted vignettes meant to evoke sympathy. Well, I do feel sorry for LeAnn a little bit. So… that was the goal?
Just a note about the alleged (or not so much) Facebook and Pinterest accounts under the name Eveleigh Rose that many think are just LeAnn’s ghost accounts. I agree that it does sound like LeAnn, and who knows? It probably is her. It reminds me very much of the controversy around the Instagram account which was under the name “Eddie Cibrian” in January/February 2013. It was so obviously done by LeAnn, and once everybody discovered it, they started trolling the account to the point where “Eddie” took it down. So, if LeAnn is running some ghost accounts… just let her. She needs to channel that energy somewhere. And if we know where she’s channeling it, it’s funny for the rest of it.
