Wow she looks really unhappy. I read her show was a huge flop in the ratings and the reviews were horrible. I would suggest she go back to singing but she just got fired from her record company. Starting to feel very sorry for Leann :-(

# 2

how come you didn’t mention that her “hate brandi” show bombed big time. guess nobody wanted to hear their “truth” meaning their lies. an unable-to-get-work actor, and a has-been singer. wonder what they’ll try next, celebrity rehab?

The next Tori and Dean, big fail. Such bores. Why do these idiots want to air their dirty laundry.? I’d rather watch cartoons than this crapola.

SOOOO many peeps watching LeAnn and Eddie! It hasn’t even aired and EVERYONE has already watched all the trailers available! AWESOME! I CAN’T STOP WATCHING THIS AWESOME COUPLE!! I will not miss one episode, I will be the driving force of their survival on tv!!

It’s so sad to see her have to do crap shows to make a living so she can support the biggest loser around. Eddie says he works? can someone tell me what he is doing. He hasn’t had a rile in over 2 years, so the liar goes on TV to tell everyone how hard he works. She got a prize, an infected peen and a lazy one to boot. She has spent the money she made at 14, the flops that she is paying for will break the bank, and when the money is gone, she will have to move back to her roots just to survive on what little she has left. The pretend world she lives in will be the straw that will catch up with her.

This article from She Knows does a perfect job at summing up the major problems with Jodi Rimes’ Ted Bundy reality tv show:

1) From She Knows: VH1′s LeAnn & Eddie: The (not good) ways they’re perfect together(July 18, 2014)

Unflattering traits make LeAnn and Eddie
the perfect couple

Thursday night’s premiere of VH1′s LeAnn & Eddie showed us what we already knew — LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are perfect together, for all the wrong reasons. This assessment of their shared unflattering characteristics is going to sound harsher than we mean it, but we can’t imagine there was one person who watched that premiere and came away feeling good about this couple’s dynamic.

Arrogance

The arrogance shared by this couple is palpable. If you are ever wondering what a big deal they are, just sit down, and they’ll explain it to you. They open the premiere by bragging about LeAnn’s awards being too numerous to count and Eddie’s successful 20-year acting career. From there, the rest of LeAnn & Eddie focuses on how much attention their relationship gets, insinuating that the general populous gives a rip about their marriage.

Eddie Cibrian denies asking Brandi Glanville for child support >>

Snide

Caustic, snide remarks can be humorous if delivered correctly. If not, they can come off as venomous, and this couple’s snide comments and attitude lean toward the latter. In the introduction, Eddie discusses how most people think LeAnn is a home wrecker, and she chimes in, “You forgot alcoholic, pill popper and child stealer.” She goes on to snidely mock public perception by describing Eddie as a “man *****, moocher” who married LeAnn for her money.

Is LeAnn Rimes going for “Most Obnoxious Celeb” title? >>

Rimes gets in several snide digs, and we quickly learn that this self-consumed couple thinks every move they make will be tabloid fodder. When she decides to skydive, she says that if something happens the tabloids will likely say Eddie pushed her out of the plane and took her $50 million. If only Americans cared that much about what these two do.

Gauche

We’re not prudes, and we love inappropriate humor as much as the next LeAnn & Eddie viewer, but there is something so harsh in the undercurrent between these two that their jokes and dynamic just come off as tacky at times. They talk about money way too much, which gets tasteless after a while. LeAnn says she’d “s*** herself” if she skydived, and Eddie pipes up that wouldn’t be good for the guy strapped to her (ew), but the tackiest line has to be at the end. In what should be a sweet moment (if such a sentiment is possible between these two), Cibrian tells Rimes he’s proud of her for jumping out of a plane, and then he ruins it by saying, “I would love you even if you only had $10 million.” Rimes trumps this by saying, “I would love you even if you were fat and ugly,” but then quickly says, “No I wouldn’t.” Again, this should come off as funny, and it just doesn’t.

LeAnn Rimes: Highlights from cringe-worthy interviews >>

Phony

“Phony” isn’t a word you should really throw around to describe people, but this couple comes across as so disingenuous that it leaves us with few other options. When they talk about the title of the show, Cibrian says “Eddie and LeAnn,” and Rimes corrects him and says pointedly, “LeAnn and Eddie.” Cibrian gets a long-suffering look on his face and says, “LeAnn and Eddie.” The moment is so obviously scripted it just falls flat. Then we see these two being driven to Cibrian’s movie premiere (obvious plug) and — we’re just going to say it out loud — a benefit for veterans (also an obvious plug?). If anyone else had done a veteran benefit on camera, we would be inclined to think that was a good thing, but their portrayal of themselves (not the tabloid portrayal of them) leaves us thinking these two aren’t terribly charitable souls.

Victims

The last trait these two share that makes them perfect together is their ability to play the victim card. They both engaged in activities that led to the bitter divorce of two marriages and now they are the victims of relentless tabloid scandal. Rimes makes a big deal about finally getting out of her 20-year recording contract and finally being free. Wait a minute. Isn’t that the same contract that earned her all those awards she bragged about as well as the $50 million they constantly discuss?

Were we the only ones who walked away from this show feeling like Brandi Glanville’s loss of Eddie Cibrian may be the best thing that ever happened to her?

My stalker is using my name to make posts and has been on PH for two days now making “I hate Gwen” posts. He also had quite the hypermanic episode on CB and Fish Wrapper yesterday using mulitiple names to defend Jodi Rimes and write hate posts about Brandi. Why am I not surprised? The best indication of just how bad things are for Jodi Rimes is my stalker. While Jodi Rimes, her minions, and VH1 are tweeting sunshine and rainbows about her Ted Bundy reality tv show, my stalker is going “apesh*t”. Why did my stalker exhibit so much nervous energy yesterday and then again today?

2) At 4:46 pm La time, Jodi Rimes tweets this:

Success
Heard from the head of @vh1 that the show did very well, they are extremely happy w/ the debut and all the social activity from last night. Thx everyone for making the show a success! Let’s keep it up! #LeAnnAndEddie
We adore all of our fans AND our haters! Thank you xoxo

3) There are so many problems with Jodi Rimes “success” statement where to begin?

When Jodi Rimes says that her Ted Bundy reality tv show was a success, is this like the time she was adamant that Spitefire was a success (even though it only sold 10,798 units) because it was #4 on a download list(the only reason it was #4 was because Jodi Rimes and DB were downloading Spitefire like crazy and then giving the downloaded CDs to her minions for gifts) ? Or is something more sinister going on? In other words, come Monday, Vh1 will report a very different number than the Cable Ratings site and claim that the ratings reported by the Cable rating site was inaccurate or incomplete?

When Jodi Rimes says head of VH1 is she talking about her friend Brandon? I checked Nicole Richie’s twitter account to see if she tweeted anything similar about being contacted by the head of VH1, but there was nothing. Why would the head of VH1 call Jodi Rimes to tell her that her show was successful when they didn’t even call Nicole Richie?

All the social activity? What social activity? According to the charts that some were posting, the hastag for Jodi Rimes Ted Bundy reality tv show only racked up 500+ tweets. The BrandiWins hastag, however received over 3000 tweets. Don’t tell me that Jodi Rimes is so far into the SWF of Brandi that she now thinks her name is Brandi.

Why would the head of any network be extremely happy with Jodi Rimes debut when it only received 374,000 viewers? Someone used Lindsy Lohan’s show as an example. On March 11, 2014 a media outlet ran the article, “Lindsay Lohan’s Reality Show Gets Poor Ratings During Debut”. They reported that LL show received 693,00 viewers. If 683,000 viewers is a poor rating, then how is 374,000 viewers a good one? Again, we are back to the idea that Vh1 is going to falsify the results come Monday so that the ratings for Jodi Rimes Ted Bundy reality tv show are extremely higher than the Cable show reported.

If Jodi Rimes adored her haters why was so much effort put into silencing them and intimidating them into silence?

“@amehrdh everything has been so positive, they can’t stand it. A few blogs “slam it” SURPRISE & they think the world ends lol-Leann Rimes

Why is Jodi Rimes such a liar? Everything hasn’t been so positive, even the reviews from the TCA event on July 11 were negative. When she posted those 8 clips in May April and May she knew that her Ted Bundy reality tv show wasn’t going to get positive feedback.

My stalker is using my name to make posts and having hypermanic episodes on PH making “I hate Gwen” posts. Jodi Rimes and her minions were on CB and Fish wrapper doing major damage control. Jodi Rimes claims that the head of Vh1 said that her show did very well just an hour or so after a site posted the 374,000 rating. Jodi Rimes had a hypermanic episode on her Irene Sybil account yesterday. Jodi Rimes tried to offset the negative reviews and create more interest in her show by having USW and Yahoo release a top 5 things you didn’t know about Leann’s Ted Bundy reality tv show list. Jodi Rimes Has been manically tweeting about the Wendy Williams birthday party on July 17 to one up Brandi. Rather than spend the day celebrating her win, she was in bed manically tweeting. For Jodi Rimes her world has ended.

Here are the negative reviews for Jodi Rimes Ted Bundy reality tv show.

1) LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian image PR backfires with terrible new reality show-Washington Post(July 18)

2) LeAnn Rimes’ Reality Show Horrible? Eddie Cibrian’s Talk Of Family Doesn’t Overshadow Brandi Glanville Feuds And Cheating Baggage-Hollywood Take(July 18)

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s new reality show was supposed to revive the image of the much-maligned couple after they rose to fame for starting a relationship while married to other people. But when the VH1 series “LeAnn & Eddie” premiered on July 17 fans were a bit horrified to see them spend half the episode bashing Eddie’s ex Brandi Glanville and the other half slamming the tabloids.

If LeAnn and Eddie have learned anything in the five years they’ve been married it certainly didn’t seem that way. Even talk of Eddie’s adorable children and possibly getting pregnant couldn’t overshadow the negative publicity and petty air throughout the episode.

Here is another bad review to add to the growing list, but this time it focuses on how the are coming off in their interviews:

1) Softpedia: LeAnn Rimes, Eddie Cibrian Are Awkward on Wendy Williams – Video(July 19, 2014)

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s new reality show, aptly called LeAnn & Eddie, premiered on VH1 this week, with the full episode arriving online one day earlier. The premiere was met with plenty of ridicule in the blogosphere, and by the way these two squirmed their way through a Wendy Williams interview, it seems that some of that has also reached their ears.

Check out the full interview in the video below. It was taped the day after the premiere and, for some reason, LeAnn seemed completely out of her comfort zone.

As Wendy’s fans must know, she is not the kind to avoid asking hard questions when she’s sitting on the couch with a more controversial guest, but this time, Eddie’s dimples seems to have gotten to her, because she went soft.

She did, however, say that the way Eddie and LeAnn’s affair was “seedy” and asked them if they ever thought about the saying “once a cheater, always a cheater.” For those who haven’t kept up with the latest in celebrity gossip, when these two met, they were both married to other people.

For the rest of the chat, though, Wendy was very nice to her two guests, even praising the reality show more than she should have, according to many voices online.

That still failed to make LeAnn feel more at ease: in the video, you see her clap her hands at awkward moments, to fill in pauses in the conversation, she squirms, she laughs nervously and, when she does talk, she does it mostly with her hands.

Eddie too seems uncomfortable, but with him, it’s clear he knew what questions to expect and how to answer them.

Speaking of questions, Wendy deserves credit for telling Eddie (in less a direct manner) that he should just step in and make his current wife stop feuding with his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville. Like he was supposed to, Eddie came to LeAnn’s rescue.

“Well my wife doesn’t engage. I mean if you want to look back, really dig down and be a journalist, look at the timelines and you will see that there is a big discrepancy and there really is no going back and forth, my wife sometimes… I mean you eventually you have to say something, enough is enough, but the truth is she has always taken the high road,” he says, as she pats him lovingly on the leg.

Because LeAnn seemed so out of her comfort zone in the interview, there’s some talk online that she was probably fearing the worst from the interview. Either way, she and Eddie come across as fake in their responses and reactions, which brings up the question: if they’re like this in a standard TV interview, how “real” are they on the reality show? Do you plan on watching it?

Stick a fork in yourselves LeAnn & Eddie. You’re DONE

Eddie as been telling some major whoppers during his interviews, but then again he got a shopping spree and a vacation to Miami.

1) Eddie’s Whopper #1:“I mean if you want to look back, really dig down and be a journalist, look at the timelines and you will see that there is a big discrepancy and there really is no going back and forth. My wife, sometimes, I mean, you eventually you have to say something. Enough is enough. But the truth is, she has always taken the high road,” he says.

What the hell is Eddie talking about? People have and are looking at the timelines. What “big” discrepancy is Eddie talking about? Jodi Rimes manically tweets about Brandi’s kids; if Brandi tweets that she misses her sons, Jodi Rimes will follow it with a tweet or twitpic of Brandi’s kids; after Brandi tweets something Jodi Rimes will tweet the same thing; and Jodi Rimes tweets to people who harass Brand. When exactly did Jodi Rimes take the high the road? When she tweets to people who harass Brandi or when she is SWF Brandi’s tweets.

2) Eddie’s Whopper #2: “The likelihood of Brandi and I getting back together would be slightly above a sighting of Bigfoot and slightly below an actual zombie apocalypse,” he said.

Isn’t this an example of triangulation? He is like a child who got upset because he couldn’t have his cookie. To save face it is going to claim that he didn’t want the cookie anyway. If Eddie was truly over Brandi she would be a non issue. Eddie should be indifferent, instead he is more focused on hurting Brandi.

This is the same man who said that the media made up his affair with Leann and that anyone who knew him would know that he wouldn’t do a thing like that [sleep with Leann]. Why exactly should we believe him now when he claims that he would never get back with Brandi? He slept with Brandi after going public with Leann at the King of Leons concert.

3) Eddie’s Whopper #3:They trust each other implicitly, despite the way they famously got together. “I’ve learned what trust is, I didn’t know what it was before, I didn’t have a partner who I respected. I really, I love and respect my wife,” Eddie says. “Trust is not an issue.”

If Eddie and Jodi Rimes trusted each other implicitly why did Jodi Rimes fake all those illnesses and cancel her concerts to babysit Eddie during his parties with Lizzy and Dave?

How has Eddie learned what trust is when his wife is on twitter manically tweeting all day? Jodi Rimes is on twitter right now having a hypermanic episode and arranging for staged photo-ops at the airports.

If Eddie really loves and respects Jodi Rimes why did he make her make out with Lizzy while he watched and took photos, forces her to give him a false alibi to cover up that he is with his mistresses, and leave Jodi Rimes in a dim room all by herself while he “picked” out floors downstairs? Eddie doesn’t respect and love Jodi Rimes, it’s why Jodi Rimes has spent their entire time together trying to morph herself into Brandi, Scheana, Lizzy, Elisa, and any woman who came in contact with Eddie.

Trust is an issue for Jodi Rimes and Eddie.

Eddie is being a typical sociopath.

4) Eddie’s Whopper #4: We really do love each other,” Eddie added. “Despite what people think. As long as she has money. If she didn’t have money, I’d be gone!”

Which explains why Jodi Rimes spends her days and nights manically tweeting. Eddie is gone.

5) Eddie’s Whopper #5: There’s a perception that there’s this feud that’s going on. The truth is, we’re really at peace. My wife and I are at peace with our family and we can only control what we do, we don’t try to fight back, we try to live our lives.”

Not based on Jodi Rimes 76, 400 tweets. The perception comes from the fact that his wife is always on twitter arguing with people. A woman at peace wouldn’t be up at 5 am manically tweeting to people who stalk and harass Eddie’s ex-wife. A woman at peace wouldn’t go out of her way to look, dress, and tweet like the ex-wife. A woman at peace doesn’t have to manically tweet about another woman’s kids the way we have seen Jodi Rimes doing. If Eddie and Jodi Rimes don’t try to fight back, why hen did they do the exclusive interviews with Robin Roberts, Guiliana, and Cabo magazine? Why did they do the NoH8 “we are sexy and hot” photoshoot then?

” My wife, sometimes, I mean, you eventually you have to say something. Enough is enough. But the truth is, she has always taken the high road”-Eddie Cibrian

The major problem with Eddie’s logic is that he and Jodi Rimes have been saying something since 2009 via exclusive interviews and staged photo-ops.

I don’t care how big of a fan anyone is, there’s no denying that the show had a very soft debut and that it was a huge mistake. They are setting themselves up for even more backlash.,Eddie’s kept his mouth shut until now and I kind of respected that, but the horrible things he said on their press tour make him look really awful and like he’s not just an adulterer, but a complete jerk. Why do these two crave the spotlight so badly. LeAnn never acted like a psycho, fame monger before she met Eddie did she? She’s wasn’t on the radar really, but isn’t it better to be off the radar and have public respect, than to stoop to staging photo ops and doing a “reality” show that is getting slaughtered by critics and opening yourself up to even more criticism. Didn’t she used to be a singer? She seems to be giving everything up for a loser who hasn’t worked in ages. I’m starting to think that they both really crave attention and don’t care if it’s negative.

Tell it like it is Eddie! FINALLY THE TRUTH IS COMING OUT!! HAHAHAHA!!!
Suck it, Brandi! Any ***** who calls her kids sh!t and a$$hole in public is a supreme douche! You deserve it, chump!

Country Girl Gwen @ 07/19/2014 at 5:07 pm

@chuckles: @ 7 – How does a straw catch up with anyone?

LMAO! The show is a stinker! Can you say FLOP! LeAnn knows about that: Spitfire anyone?

SweetHeartHolly @ 07/20/2014 at 5:41 pm

Finally the “LIES” are coming out!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Suck it Leann! Didn’t the country singer leave laxatives around for Brandi and Eddie’s child to eat? The country singer is NOT a proper parent!!! It doesn’t matter anyway, Eddie has been dating a celebrity and the country singer knows about it. I can’t wait until everyone knows about Eddie’s HOT new celebrity girlfriend!!!!

GO AWAY PLEASE @ 07/20/2014 at 6:02 pm

I believe these two are blissfully happy about as much as I believe the paps chase them relentlessly. These two lie every time they open their mouth in case nobody has noticed. Eddie is a sleaze bag jerk that should have kept his mouth shut so he could have continued fooling a few that he actually had a brain. Leann is so bent on them being “famous” that everything she does destroys both of them further. Now when this show flops will the two of you finally just go away and live a quiet life out of the public eye? The majority are sick of you and have spoken. Buy an island with your last million and both of you and your handful of challenged fans move there and live happily ever after.

Wow just wow! kiki’s got legs, and she knows how to use them!! Thanks ZZ Top (and LeAnn for bringing us Kiki)!!!

VH1′s ‘Dating Naked’ Delivers OK Debut, ‘Leann And Eddie’ Soft
‘Leann And Eddie’ Soft
Friday July 18, 2014 @ 1:45pm PDT

The sayings are that sex sells and controversy gets coverage and certainly VH1 were betting on a bit of both with Naked Dating. To that end, last night’s 9 PM debut of the self explanitory reality series from Lighthearted Entertainment delivered – somewhat. The 1-hour Naked Dating had 826,000 total viewers with 480,000 among Adults 18-9. Not only was that 0.5 rating the best non-Monday premiere in the Viacom channel has had since Mob Wives launched on April 17, 2011 with a 0.9 but it saw huge leaps up from the last quarter.

vh1Dating had a 150% increase among the demo and a 147% rise in total viewers over the same time period last quarter. Now granted, VH1 didn’t have any original programming on Thursday nights between March 29 and June 29, but triple digit rises are nothing to be scoffed at. Then again, Naked Dating’s debut was far far behind the January 6th Season 3 premiere of Single Ladies, which pulled in 2.6 million viewers that Monday. With its 11 PM encore, the Amy Paffrath-hosted Naked Dating had a total viewership of 1.289 million last night.

The rest of VH1’s new programming on VH1 might have wanted to strip down a bit to do better. Coming after the 551,000 who watched the debut of Candidly Nicole, the 10:30 premiere of Leann And Eddie was seen by a total 374,000 audience of 374,000. The former was up 51% from last quarter among the 18-49s with 325,000 watching while the later up just 19% over the last quarter’s average in the time slot with 252,000 viewers in the demo.

EXAMINER
Review: ‘LeAnn & Eddie’

July 13, 2014

Words cannot describe how little I care about the personal lives of most celebrities. I have a couple of close friends that are extremely well-known and if I’ve learned one thing from being around them, it’s the life they live in public (even in the tabloids), bears scant resemblance to what happens in private. I don’t care all that much if someone cheats on their spouse or is a terrible parent. Those problems are best left to the people they impact directly and it would be insane for me to draw conclusions based on what I read in a gossip column or TMZ.

All of which was a problem for me when I approached the new VH1 reality series “LeAnn & Eddie.” LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are both talented enough people, but why exactly would I want to watch a TV show highlighting their lives…or at least, the version of their lives they want to show to the viewing audience?

Based on the premiere episode of the show, the answer is that there isn’t a reason to watch, unless you’re either an uber-fan of the duo or are a Brandi Glanville fan who has some need to keep count of how many times she’s referenced in the show. “LeAnn & Eddie” isn’t the worst entry ever in the “celebrity life” reality TV genre, but it is a pretty good example of why you shouldn’t allow the subjects of the show to have too much control over the finished product.

Literally 75% of the premiere episode involves gossip and the press in some way, with much of the storyline built around Eddie Cibrian’s unhappiness with a tabloid story that claimed the couple was headed for a $50 million divorce. Now while I understand their frustration, seeing their frustrations played out on camera is like a whiney version of watching sausage being made. Will the couple respond publicly? What will the kids say? Will friend Mario Lopez ask them about it during an interview on “Extra?” The problem is that while this story matters a lot to LeAnn and Eddie, it’s not so compelling a story if you’re just watching the couple obsess about it.

Yawn.

I’m probably not the target audience for “LeAnn & Eddie,” but it’s hard for me to determine just who the audience might be for a show that wants to offer up a different side of the duo, but is also self-obsessed with gossip and bad publicity. A writing mentor of mine once told me that just because you have a story to tell, that doesn’t mean it’s worth telling.

And that, in one sentence, is the core problem with “LeAnn & Eddie.”

“LeAnn & Eddie” premieres on VH1 on Thursday, July 17th, 2014.

Is LeAnn Rimes in cahoots with paparazzi who take all of those beach bikini pics?

NEW YORK – LeAnn Rimes has had enough photos taken of her on beaches in bikinis to star in her own calendar.

The country music singer, much maligned for her scandalous marriage to her co-star Eddie Cibrian (they hooked up on the set of a Lifetime movie while they were married to others), may not be making much music these days, but she sure is a professional at staying in the press.

Like clockwork new shots of Rimes frolicking on a new beach in a new bikini appear in celebrities weeklies and web sites.

Here she is in Maui; there she is in Mexico; here she is in Malibu.

If there’s a beach, there’s a good likelihood Rimes will be on it in a teeny weeny bikini.

Now some industry insiders are speculating that these pics aren’t paparazzi shots at all, but that Rimes is tipping off the photographers to stage the shots, and maybe even getting a piece of the action for herself.

The most recent pictures of Rimes and husband Eddie Cibrian looking picture perfect on a beach in Cabo San Lucas raised the eyebrows of one skeptical photo editor.

“Those photographs came into all the magazines and websites fully captioned and saying, ‘LeeAnn Rimes on a trip to renew her vows.’ There is no vow renewing in those pictures,” the industry insider told us. “There is no way the paps would have known she was doing that unless she specifically told them.”

“Plus the paps just don’t get access like that in Cabo,” the editor added. “They can’t get close enough to the celebrities without permission to get the quality of those photos. They were right next to her. There was no long lens. This was not intrusive in any way. This was a photo shoot.”

PHOTOS: Country music’s most stylish stars.

Pics like these demonstrate a truth long known in the magazine industry but hidden from consumers—celebrities are often in cahoots with the paparazzi.

“There is nothing news worthy about LeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach”
- Celeb weekly editor
“There are many celebrities who do everything possible to stay out of the paparazzi’s range yet many others use these photographers as their one-way ticket into glossy magazines. More behind the scenes deals are brokered between photographers and stars than most people think,” explained Dorothy Cascerceri, Senior Editor and television correspondent for In Touch Weekly magazine. “Sometimes celebs allow photo agencies to license their personal photos and other times they contact photo agencies before leaving the house so shutterbugs can snap them taking a ‘casual afternoon stroll.’ Attention-starved C- and D-listers are most well known for tipping off agencies. The paparazzi are as much puppets to some celebs as they are nuisances to others.”

VOTE: Who wore it best, LeAnn Rimes or Brooklyn Decker?

Indeed the reasons celebrities hook up with the paps are many. One is to control the kinds of pictures released to the press. Some celebs believe that if they give just a little they can avoid the paparazzi snapping them unaware in an embarrassing situation.

Another reason to hook up with the paps is to get cash, one of the dirtier little secrets of Hollywood moneymaking. Celebrities often share the proceeds from the sales of their photographs to magazines and websites with the agency that contracts the photographer taking the pictures.

Insiders said there is a possibility that Rimes is making money off her photos, even though it wouldn’t be big time cash.

“We see her in a bikini all the time. There is nothing news worthy about LeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach so it isn’t a big money shot,” an editor told us.“It is the equivalent of Jennifer Garner walking down the street with a coffee or maybe just a little bit more. I would say they sell to magazines for $1,000 and to websites for $100 a piece.”

But if those pictures are purchased by 10 magazines around the world and a hundred websites, that is still a nice chunk of change.

But perhaps more than the money, such shots help to bolster Rimes’ somewhat tarnished brand which took a hit when she first hooked up with Cibrian while he was married to ‘Beverly Hills Real Housewife’ Brandi Glanville.

“Her story is defined as being the girl who hooked up with her co-star when they were both married and and she stole this woman’s husband. When you see her frolicking around in the sun it sends the signal this is real relationship just like yours. Maybe it was weird how they got together but now they are just like you,” an editor told us. “There is nothing news worthy about LeeAnn Rimes frolicking on the beach but it is another reminder to anyone who will pay attention that she is happy and skinny and still married.”

Rimes did not respond to our request for comment.
