LeAnn Rimes: Eddie Cibrian and I Are “Easy Targets” in the Media

It used to be that when LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian said dumb things, hardly anyone would pay attention. Now that the pair have gotten their own show (LeAnn & Eddie, which is set to premiere on July 17), people are actually listening. That’s good news for LeAnn, who loves to talk!

The two gave an interview to TV Guide about their upcoming series, and the questions immediately turned to LeAnn and Eddie’s notoriety in the tabloids. When asked why gossip mags are so “obsessed” with the two of them (strong word, if you ask us), LeAnn replied, “We’re both a little dumbfounded by it. They broke the story [of our affair] back in the day, and it’s been a constant feeding frenzy — I guess we’re easy targets.”

Eddie famously cheated on his then-wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville, with LeAnn Rimes, and the three of them haven’t stopped talking about it since. Now that LeAnn’s parlayed it into a reality series, we expect we’ll have to hear about it for a long, long time. LeAnn may have “Nothin’ Better to Do,” but we can think of a few things.

“This [show] will offer a glimpse into our self-depricating, fun side,” Eddie promised. “The tone is very much that of a docu-com — not a docu-soap, where you see a lot of drinking and wine-throwing.” So Brandi won’t be stopping by for a guest appearance, then?

Are you excited for LeAnn & Eddie? Will Brandi ever be able to stop talking about the affair? Tell us what you think in the comments!
