LeAnn & Eddie Episode 2 Recap: Drunk LeAnn Thinks Brandi Needs Rehab!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Last week's LeAnn & Eddie premiere signaled a new low for reality TV, as the Z-list couple giggled their way through 22 minutes of scripted nonsense with all the believability of a 4th grade production of Hamlet.

One week ago, we never would've thought it possible, but episode two actually might be worse.

Things start off innocently enough with Cibrian and Rimes enjoying a catered dinner at home so that they can avoid the paparazzi. No really, Eddie said that.

Fortunately, Cibrian doesn't joke about LeAnn's eating disorder during the meal, but his other attempts at being funny include a toast to getting laid and jokes about his love of prostitutes. What a guy!

Eddie's well-rehearsed schtick falls flat, of course, but there are plenty of unintentionally hilarious moments in the episode, such as when Eddie reveals that he didn't know the TV show Dallas was filmed in Dallas. Seriously.

That brings us to the main storyline of tonight's episode, as Eddie agonizes over the decision of whether he should spend seven months in Dallas shooting a recurring role on the series or stay home with LeAnn. When you look up "no brainer" on Wikipedia, it's just a YouTube clip from this episode.

But before that dramatic tension can be resolved, we have to suffer through an inane, sitcommy B-plot in which LeAnn's "friends" encourage her to get back to her "southern roots."

LeAnn spends some time sitting around with the actors being paid to pretend they like her, and talks about how badly Brandi Glanville needs to go to rehab, all while getting midday sloshed at brunch.

Next, LeAnn lies to her friends about being able to ride an ATV, and proceeds to look even more awkward and out of place as usual as they all go four-wheeling for some reason.

Then, because it's in his contract that he be depicted doing something manly in every scene, Eddie is tuning up his car when his agent calls to basically tell him he'd be an idiot to pass up the Dallas gig.

Meanwhile, LeAnn takes her girlfriends to a gay country bar where she proves that dancing is yet another thing that she sucks at. She then gets drunk enough to actually sing a song on stage. (Didn't she used to do that professionally?)

But as foolish as LeAnn looks, Eddie proves he's the real dumbass in the relationship when he passes up his first real acting gig in forever in order to stay with LeAnn.

The job probably would've paid pretty well, so it's a good thing she was hammered when he broke the news.

She used to have a singing career…now her second career is trading barbs on Twitter with her husband's ex-wife. Sad. (And Brandi is a hot mess too.)

I didn't think it would be possible to make Brandi Glanville look "normal", but these two fools have exceeded my expectations. Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are douches.

These two are disgusting. Their lame attempts to convince us that they are a loving couple who are devoted to their children are just sad. Eddie can't even act genuine so it's no wonder he isn't working. Acting requires the ability to convince others that it's real. Big fail on both their parts. This show is just one big passive aggressive dig to Brandi. Leann acts like stealing Eddie from Brandi was like being rewarded a grand prize....she got a prize alright...the booby prize! Eddie doesn't work because he's a bad actor and Leann doesn't want him working because she's afraid his peen will wander off. He is a lazy bum who has a stupid sugar momma supporting him. These two losers deserve each other. This show just confirmes that he is a pr*ck,d*ck, and an assh*le rolled into one, and she's a petty,vindictive,wh*ring b*tch! This show is the best thing to ever happen to Brandi!

We all knew the show would flop. It's sick that they've never apologized for their actions to those who got hurt. Instead they take jabs at the ex. Shows how low they really are.

Seriously? I think you need to grow up. Those two are everything the "writer" said, and more.

He's recapping the show not reporting on it. This is how it's done. Where do you get that he's a reporter?
