Yesterday the news that singer LeeAnn Rimes and actor Eddie Cibrian’s reality show broke. Given their history the first thing I thought about was weather or not this could spell trouble for them. As a fan of many reality shows I have witnessed many couples on these prime time shows ending up in divorce court. In a recent interview they say that they are doing the show because they want people to see “who they are really not.”
As much as I really want this to work for them I cannot help remember that they started seeing each other while they were married to other people. And to make matters worse Eddie’s ex, Brandi Glanville is a regular on another reality show and constantly reminding the world how bad the marriage was.
VH1 will air the show in the Fall. Fans will enjoy an inside look at the couples life. But the only way these shows get any ratings is if there is drama. Should be interesting to see what happens here.
