Singer LeAnn Rimes and her actor hubby Eddie Cibrian have landed a reality show on VH1 with Gurney Productions, the group responsible for the wildly popular ‘Duck Dynasty.’
VH1 confirmed the news yesterday, indicating the six-episode half-hour series will begin airing this fall. The working title for now is ‘LeAnn & Eddie.’
Press Release: “Inside the sanctity of their world, Eddie and LeAnn are a typical normal modern family. A married couple, who both have careers and are also learning how to navigate the co-parenting of Eddie’s two sons.”
LeAnn and Eddie responded with their own statement “We are really excited to be working together on a unique show that will give you a glimpse into who we really are or better yet, who we’re really not. We’re thrilled to partner with VH1 and the Gurneys, the producers of Duck Dynasty, to put our spin on a project full of love, humor and music.”
Can Rimes and Cibrian generate the same appeal as the duck call millionaires from Louisiana?
The President of VH1 Tom Calderone said, “LeAnn and Eddie are both talented entertainers who have really captured the public’s imagination in the last couple of years, but there is so much more to them than what is in the tabloids.”
“This is going to be a really fun show in which we hope to reveal what their lives are really like — from the normalcy of their home life, to what drives them artistically, to the chaos of their celebrity life.”
This new revelation should send Eddie’s ex, reality star Brandi Glanville, over the edge. According to the press release, her sons will be filmed. That said, we fully expect their feisty mama to dial up the drama.
