LeAnn Rimes: ‘I’m actually a real housewife, I do housewife-y things’

LeAnn Rimes: 'I'm actually a real housewife, I do housewife-y things'

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are still deep in the middle of promotion for their VH1 reality show “LeAnn and Eddie” and she can’t help but to take a sly dig at Brandi Glanville. She wants everyone to know that she is a “real housewife” and how they handled the idea that their lives would be put on display for the public.

From “USA Today”, they both talked about how they navigated the tides of reality television.

DO set up boundaries and decide what’s fair game — and what’s not. In one episode, Rimes hits her head while Cibrian carries her. In another, she’s bloated after using steroids to treat her voice after she lost it on tour. But Glanville won’t be on Cibrian’s show — and, most adamantly, neither will their boys. “There’s no point and no benefit for the kids to be on any kind of show,” he says. “They’re never on camera.”

DON’T act normal. Just be normal. “You do forget the cameras are there,” says Rimes. “You do see how we are as a couple.” Rimes says it took her about a day to get used to being filmed. To help things along and make her mother, who’s not a performer, feel at ease, Rimes would joke around with her to make her forget about the lenses and lights surrounding her. “We’d start making her laugh and you’d get this magical thing,” says Rimes.

DON’T airbrush your reality to the point where it stinks of fakery. Both Cibrian and Rimes are producers on the show, so they decide what’s in or out. But they opted to let ridiculous and heartfelt moments stay on air. “We didn’t shy away from anything,” says Cibrian. Even some tough moments. “Eddie is making a decision of whether or not to take a job. He’s really given up a lot of work to be home with his kids, and there’s something that’s really emotional about that for me,” says Rimes.

DO have fun, and keep it as classy as possible. “Just enjoy it,” Rimes says. “We got to work with our parents and friends. It was fun to be able to interact with them. My mom is hysterical. His parents are Cuban. My mom is Southern. Everyone seems to get along.” Looking back, says Cibrian, the plan was to do six episodes. Then, VH1 asked for more. “We could cut some embarrassing moments out, but we kept them in,” says Cibrian, referring to a future episode dealing with Jackson Pollock and bathroom humor.

DON’T talk smack about bothersome people. Including your exes, even if they trash you. Cibrian says he won’t dig into any divorce issues, and says that he and Glanville manage to co-parent amicably these days. And he has no intention of behaving in a manner that would make his kids cringe when they finally see an episode. “It’s not invasive. It’s not exploitative. It’s not train-wreck TV,” says Cibrian. That being said, personal travails will be addressed as needed. “If it’s within the story line we’re talking about, you get to see how we would deal with it. That’s really it. There’s no malicious attacks.” Adds Rimes: “Nothing that we say about ourselves, or others, is untrue. We wanted for people to laugh with us — they’ve been laughing at us for a long time.”​

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in Paris

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are over in Paris at the moment (perhaps working out some details for their upcoming wedding?) and of course had to go out on the town for some shopping – and a handy photo op, of course.

Kanye doesn’t look too happy, but then again, when does he? At least Kim’s got her game face on as per usual.

‘Jersey Shore’s JWoww really hates being pregnant

FFN_KM_MTV_Awd_041314_51383083

Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley is pregnant at the same time as her former Jersey Shore co-star Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, but it seems like the ladies are having a pretty different experience. While Snooki is stoked on growing a baby inside of her, JWoww wants this thing done and over with as quick as possible.

“She loves being pregnant right now and I f–king hate it,” Farley told Us exclusively about herself and Snooki. “I’m not a fan of pregnancy right now with my thighs touching and my boobs changing but I know it will be worth it and hopefully I get back to that really quickly.”

Polizzi, who explained her pregnancy is “better” this time around, said she has confidence in Farley’s parenting skills because of the maternal instincts she showed on Jersey Shore. “I know she is going to be a great mom,” Snooki told Us exclusively. “She took care of me for four years on Jersey Shore. The whole labor thing she is really nervous about but anybody is nervous about that.”

I don’t blame JWoww, to be honest – I’ve got no interest in having kids OR being pregnant, and I certainly don’t think it would be the wonderful glowy experience everyone thinks it is! Not that kids aren’t great, of course, but you know what I mean…

Kylie Jenner is insulted by your plastic surgery accusations

FFN_Jenner_Kylie_TrickyD_040514_51374059

Kylie Jenner is only 16 years old, so there’d be no reason on earth for her to have ever undergone any cosmetic procedures. However, some people think she has, and OK Australia recently consulted with a surgeon who said he believed she showed evidence of having had a rhinoplasty and Botox injections in her lips. How offensive!

She took to Twitter late Wednesday night to express her displeasure with these “rumors” and insist that she had no reason to go under the knife:

“These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting,” Jenner, 16, wrote.

Recent stories insinuated the teen elected to undergo a variety of procedures including a nose job and lip injections.

Kim Kardashian’s little sister retweeted a message from Stephen Baldwin’s daughter Hailey, about natural beauty, as well as another post about puberty being a “beautiful thing.”

Jenner went on to emphasize her age, tweeting, “Just in case anyone forgot.. I’m 16.”

Well, no, we didn’t forget – that’s part of the reason it’s so upsetting to think that someone so young is modifying her face and body so unnecessarily. She’s a beautiful girl – it’s a shame she’s being raised in a family that’s so friendly with their local surgeon.

Jill Duggar is engaged!

Jill Duggar

Jill Duggar, one of the 19 Duggar kids, is getting ready to tie the knot, having announced this week that she and boyfriend Derrick Dillard are engaged! You know what that means: they can finally hold hands!!

“I am so happy,” says Jill. “Our story is so very unique. The first time we talked, he was in Japan, we met in Nepal, he spent time in India and Israel and then came back to Arkansas where he met my family. We have a very international story even though we live so close.”

Jill and her younger sister Jessa, 21 – who is in a courtship with Ben Seewald, 18, of Hot Spring, Ark. – have shared the differences between dating and courting with millions of viewers. The girls, along with their sisters Jana, 24, and Jinger, 20, also explain those differences in their new book Growing Up Duggar, released earlier this year. Once the couple became engaged, they agreed that they would hold hands – a physical contact they decided to hold off until engagement. They will share their first kiss on their wedding day.

“I feel like I’m dreaming,” Derick tells PEOPLE of his engagement to Jill. “It was great to grab her hand for the first time.”

Well, that sounds… special, I suppose.  I’d say it’s slightly concerning to marry someone you haven’t even kissed before, but I suppose to each her own. Hopefully Derrick is ready just in case 22-year-old Jill wants to recreate her large family all over again!
