LeAnn & Eddie is a ratings disaster, and it's almost certain that there won't be a season 2, but fortunately Rimes and Cibirian have chosen to script and rehearse just about every scene, so they'll be able to escape the mess without too much damage to their reputations.
In order to help keep up appearances, the couple even pretended a rented Malibu mansion (probably paid for by VH1) is their actual home!
"That house ups the glamour and makes LeAnn and Eddie look like they're living the high life," says a source close to the production.
"They want people to think they're rich, but the truth is they live in a much older, rustic house and definitely aren't swimming in money."
A rep for LeAnn confirms that the house does not belong to her and Eddie, but claims the couple chose to film in swankier digs so as not to "disrupt [Eddie's sons] by shooting at the real house." Riiiiight.
So in order to not "disrupt" the kids LeAnn and Eddie just took off to go live in a different house for six weeks? Sounds like some solid parenting.
