LeAnn Rimes’ career is really taking off

LeAnn Rimes out and about in L.A. (2/24)

LeAnn Rimes is such a huge star right now that she may get her own reality show. Wow! Her entire family must be so excited! . . . I’m being a dick, in case you couldn’t tell. From Us Weekly:

LeAnn Rimes may be following in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville’s footsteps. In the March 11 issue of Us Weekly (on stands now), a source says the 30-year-old country singer may get her own TV series, too!

“LeAnn has been approached about doing both scripted and nonscripted shows,” the source reveals. Though the “Borrowed” singer sniffed to Jay Leno on December 18 that “there’s no reality in a reality show,” she has been talking to producers “and hearing people out,” the source tells Us.

Well, why not? LeAnn has already been living the reality TV lifestyle for years, so she might as well be compensated for it now. This wacky, mantis-eyed, anorexic homewrecker might be on a slow burning death spiral, but it’s an entertaining death spiral nonetheless. Personally, I can’t wait to see what makes this bumpkin finally blow her top. Will it be one of the digs that rival Brandi Glanville constantly shoots across LeAnn’s bow? Maybe the final straw will be the moment LeAnn realizes that Taylor Swift stole her schtick and sold ten times the amount of albums she ever did. The reason doesn’t really matter, since nothing says Must See TV like a season premiere trip to rehab, followed by a mid-season finale trip to rehab, followed by a season finale trip to rehab. I’ve already set my TiVo.
