It was a very special episode of LeAnn and Eddie last night on VH1, as the show's female lead, LeAnn Rimes, was forced to deal with the devastating news that her husband and costar, Eddie Cibrian, may have to leave town for an acting job. There were tears and sighs and a pint of Ben & Jerry's ice cream, but in the end, it was all for naught as Eddie decided to turn down a role on the series Dallas to stay in Los Angeles, close to his wife and two young sons.
The news of this Dallas role came early in the episode, the morning after the couple enjoyed a romantic dinner cooked by a private chef at their Malibu mansion while Eddie's kids were with their mom, Brandi Glanville. The couple like to stay in for date night when they can it seems rather than go out and be hassled by the paparazzi invading their public space, as Eddie explained to the reality TV crew that was filming the entire evening.
The next morning, Eddie dropped his Dallas bombshell as LeAnn got ready for a day out with her girls. Eddie was not sure he wanted to commit to the seven month shoot as it would take him away from his kids. LeAnn also worried about Eddie being away from his kids for such a long period of time, but seemed more upset she would have to be away from him for weeks at a time as he filmed alone on set thousands of miles away.
We wonder why?
In the end, the producers offered Eddie some three-day weekends and paid travel to fly back and forth to L.A., but he still turned the role down. He gave LeAnn the news as she sat drunkenly eating Ben & Jerry's ice cream in their kitchen after a night out at a gay country bar that culminated with the singer belting out her 2000 hit "Can't Fight the Moonlight," which you can watch above.
After getting the news, a very emotional LeAnn said, "Really, are you okay with that? The last thing I want is for you to be resentful of the situation."
She then added, "I know you need to feel fulfilled, you love what you do and it breaks my heart to see that you have to compromise as much as you do to be honest."
And with that, Eddie said other roles will come along, grabbed his crying wife in his arms, and announced he was going upstairs to have his way with her. Romance!
It was not all tears however during the episode, as LeAnn did manage to get in one dig at Eddie's ex Brandi during brunch with her girls, saying she thinks Brandi needs to go to rehab.
Family gatherings must be a blast with that group.
