Well, that didn’t take long. An official first look at LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian‘s upcoming reality show, LeAnn & Eddie, was released on Tuesday June 10 and the couple don’t wait a hot minute to bring up Cibrian’s infamous ex-wife Brandi Glanville.
The trailer kicks off with the couple explaining that their relationship “didn’t quite start off like we had planned.” (Understatement of the century: When they fell in love on a movie set in late 2008, Cibrian was, of course, married to Glanville and Rimes was married to Dean Sheremet when they first met.)
“We were both married to other people…now who we really are is a couple and in love,” Cibrian tells the camera. Rimes goes on to say they’re just “trying to figure out how to navigate this family … that’s highly publicized.”
Cue the Brandi Glanville digs! The couple managed to bring up Cibrian’s ex-wife numerous times in the clip. At one point, the actor is texting Glanville which leads to the country singer slapping him. Cibrian even confesses, “I have no idea what my ex-wife is up to,” while taking a jab at the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills firebrand, coughing, “Contrary to what some people think, my ex-wife, I actually do work.”
When not complaining about Glanville, the reality show is set to also reveal Rimes and Cibrian’s decision to have children or not. Cibrian is already father to two sons with Glanville, Mason, 11, and Jake, 7.
“Eddie and I have talked about having kids and waiting for the right time. I’m 31 and my mom had fertility issues,” Rimes admits, adding, “I know Eddie isn’t quite ready but this could be my only opportunity to have a child.”
