LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are reportedly hoping to star in a sitcom together. Luckily, Brandi Glanville must have been away from her computer when she heard the news, because she hasn't responded to it with an angry Twitter rant (yet).
According to Us Weekly, an insider said of the sitcom that they're shopping around, "They would play versions of themselves, kind of like on "Curb Your Enthusiasm.'" Of course the TV show would feature a "crazy ex-wife," but Eddie and Brandi's two sons would be played by actors. LeAnn and Eddie would probably find it really romantic to work together again since they first met on the set of their movie "Northern Lights."
LeAnn would also likely love for comedy writers to come up with clever one-liners about Brandi's bathroom makeout session, her vaginal rejuvenation surgery, and that one time she slept with Gerard Butler -- it's probably killed LeAnn to hold her tongue about some of Brandi's antics.
LeAnn can't star in her own reality show since it would make it look like she's trying to copy her rival's role on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," but she should embrace the scripted format, anyway. Writers will be coming up with clever things for her to say, so she won't slip up and blurt out something that makes her look bad. Basically, she'll be able to paint a pretty portrait of herself as an amazing "bonus mom" that can do no wrong. But what subjects could LeAnn Rimes tackle on her sitcom besides her feud with Brandi Glanville and her romance with Eddie Cibrian?
She might consider spending one episode celebrating the first time that Brandi and Eddie's sons first called her "mom." She recently told Fabulous magazine this about how Mason and Jake refer to her: "Sometimes they'll blurt out: 'Mom!', but I just go with whatever they call me. As long as it's nice and respectful, I couldn't care less." LeAnn could really enrage Brandi by having the boys' stand-ins call her "mom" all of the time on the show. And of course she'll have to be portrayed as a supportive little league mom who sexes up the sidelines of her stepsons' games in revealing clothing like skimpy PVC shorts.
LeAnn might also address her torrid relationship with Twitter -- if the sitcom is based on her life, then half of the show should feature the country star refreshing her Twitter page over and over again. LeAnn once tried to quit the social networking site because of some of the harsh criticism that she encountered there because of her affair and some of her subsequent behavior. She even sued two of her online "haters" after the women recorded a phone conversation with LeAnn about their negative internet postings. So LeAnn has a few arch-enemy characters to cast besides Brandi.
LeAnn's sitcom will also have to feature plenty of bikini moments since the singer is such a big fan of rocking the stringy swimwear. An entire episode of the show could be about LeAnn's vain attempt to escape the paparazzi while she tries to enjoy some private time sunbathing on the beach. Exciting stuff.
So what do you think -- will her show be a success because Brandi fans will hate-watch it, or is this a terrible idea that's destined to die before it even becomes a pilot?
