There are child actors playing their minor (step) kids due to a dispute with the kids’ mother, Eddie’s ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, and the couple’s personal and professional lives have been captured for the cameras.
The couple have been in the tabloid headlines ever since their 2010 affair. Years later, it’s still the topic of conversation and it’s also addressed on the show. Moreover, the negative publicity that follows them and how it affects the couple will be featured on LeAnn & Eddie so fans can hear the other side of the story (Brandi has written several books about the affair, and talks about it on her podcast and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills).
Asked whether he thought the television show would end the rumours, Eddie told OK! Magazine, “Oh no, of course not,” adding, “I mean, come on. We are all realistic.”
Eddie continues, “I think, ultimately, we wanted to do a show and I think that this format, this genre, unscripted, gave us an opportunity to do something fun, work together, and at the same time what’s really real about the show is our relationship.”
What can fans expect from the show, he adds, “You’ll see how we interact with one another juxtaposed to everything else that the public reads or is fed by the tabloids and what we think they are as a couple.”
LeAnn chimes in, “I’ve stripped a lot of things away. We’ve both gone through a lot of very private things with the public eyes watching and Eddie and I really have kind of coped with all of it by laughing.”
How would she describe their relationship, “We are both very much smart asses. We give each other a lot of crap. I think people think we pretty much take ourselves super seriously and we don’t at all.”
LeAnn & Eddie premieres July 17 at 10:30 PM on VH1.
