'LeAnn And Eddie' reality show debuts Thursday night

VH1's new reality show "LeAnn And Eddie" debuts tonight (Thursday, July 17) at 9:30pm CT/10:30 ET. It will follow the lives of LeAnn Rimes and her actor husband, Eddie Cibrian.

An article in USA Today, describes the show as a way for Eddie Cibrian to even the public playing field with his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, a star of Bravo's "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." The newspaper wrote, "Their lives have certainly been played out for public consumption. Rimes was with her first husband, Dean Sheremet, when she met Cibrian, who was still with Glanville. Rimes, 31, and Cibrian, 41, went public as a couple in 2009, got married in April 2011, and are now co-parenting his sons Mason, 11, and Jack, 7, along with Glanville. Still, it's easy to see why Cibrian wants this public forum, given that Glanville's show covered, among other plot lines, a lengthy saga involving a waitress who allegedly bedded a married Cibrian."

LeAnn's mother and Eddie's parents make appearances on the new VH1 show, but Eddie's children will not be part of the program, which Eddie describes as "a satire of what has happened in our lives." Adds LeAnn, "We wanted for people to laugh with us."
