NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 31, 2013 – Country singer Leann Rimes might be bringing her sometimes controversial life with husband and actor Eddie Cibrian to the the small screen. The “Borrowed” songstress, who drops her eleventh full-length major label record Spitfire on June 4, reveals to Us Weekly that the couple has “been talking about a show” based around their everyday lives to bring a little humor to a tough four years since the much-publicized affair in 2009.
“It’s not a reality show,” Rimes explains. “If anything, it would be based around our normal lives, but it would be scripted. We want to take our lives and laugh as much at ourselves as we think other people do.”
One thing the 30-year-old wants to be clear on is that she hopes to dissipate the negativity surrounding her relationship with Cibrian. She says, “I think people think we take ourselves so seriously, and it would be fun to be able to play with it, make fun of it, and have fun.”
“Everyone seems to think they know who we are, but to be able to show that — but not have it be a reality show where cameras follow us around 24/7 — would be so fun.”
She adds, “It would be taking our regular life and elaborating on it to make it really over the top and funny. After all these years of having stuff thrown at us, it would be great to laugh at it all.”
Rimes and Cibrian have allegedly “met with a few networks,” a second unnamed source says. “Nothing is finalized yet, but they’re seeing where the show could go.”
