Bringing LeAnn Rimes to ‘Real Housewives’ Is the Best & Worst Idea Bravo’s Ever Had

GossipMonger 15

SLeAnn rimesounds like there may be a little cast mix-up for The Real Housewives of Beverly HillsNo, I'm not talking about Lisa Vanderpump or Brandi Glanville, although this rumor may make Brandi pretty heated. According to Radar Online, producers have approached LeAnn Rimes multiple times about joining the cast, and have been REALLY pressing her in recent weeks to give them an answer. They think that going on the show would be great for her, that she would be able to get her side of the story out to the world, and no longer be seen in a negative light.

LeAnn, well, she's not feeling it (THANK YOU LORD). A source tells RadarOnline that she "doesn't want the added drama in her life, that she has a flourishing music career, and that she just doesn't need to do a reality television show."

Let's state the obvious here: LeAnn committing to Real Housewives would be the dumbest choice she could make, ever. No one would benefit from it, not even Bravo.

I firmly believe that viewers can only handle so much drama. Throwing LeAnn into the mix would bring up so many issues between her and Brandi. Fighting about Eddie Cibrian. Fighting about LeAnn spending time with Brandi's kids. Fighting about every single thing that's been written about in the tabloids. So much fighting that after a while, viewers would get exhausted just praying for something good to happen.

Plus, LeAnn is first and foremost a singer. Yeah, she hasn't necessarily been a chart topping artist in the last few years -- but going onto Real Housewives would pretty much solidify that her hopes of being on top again are gone. No one with a successful career outside of Housewives goes on Housewives. Although I'm Team Brandi, LeAnn deserves better for herself than this.

Would you want to see LeAnn Rimes on Real Housewives? Do you think it would be a train wreck?

We already get enough of Brandi's filthy vulgar mouth. Don't need LeeAnn to have to argue with her on tv..

And no team Brandi here..

I'm calling BS on this rumor, it was probably generated to get people talking. No one would want to befriend LeAnne and I can't imagine her wanting to be in that arena, even if she didn't have her singing career. Don't make up the rumors, it lessens your credibility.

We're already sick of it now...why would Bravo do would lose all of your best viewers, I'm sure.....

Faith Lartz Duncan

Sounds like a BIG Old Load of crap to me!!

Jennifer Yeatts McCready

Bring on Leann. We live for Drama. After all isnt the what the Housewives are all about? LOL devil

Patti Marie McClure

That would be network suicide. I don't see Bravo stooping to such lows as to even suggest Leann and Brandi be on the show at the same time.

Susan Brengle Cotner

If this is true I will no longer watch Bravo anymore. It is not a good thing at all. Bravo can not be this desperate for viewers

TEAM LEANN HERE!! And notice the ones who llke Brandi are just like her, bitter, classless and disturbed. After watching her tits bounce around at the Oscars where Brandi doesn't belong in the dress that doesn't fit her but planned to look like trash which she is .. ugh .. and her kids .. her poor sons. The lowest class buying her stupid book to make this bashing b*tch a best seller when they know it's smoke and mirrors and this one didn't just come out of the closet looking like a ho as she does today. Sexy is one thing as so many stars are and the interviewers and anchors, Brandi is a stand out by embarrassing her sons and anyone else who might have stupidly thought she was honest. This is honest. Brandi is the word she uses most, the F..K word and her vocabulary is who she is .. her husband should get custody and this event proves it. Brandi is not a star, she is just present where she should not have been. I think you'll find she'll get reviews as many as the celbs but they won't be good. Now she should get parenting skills while her kids stay with their dad and LeAnn. Idon't think Brandi is stable mentally and this proves it. She could have dressed sexy and classy, she chose to look like a whore. She did a good job at that one. ugh, barf and throw up. NOT TEAM BRANDI ..

LeAnn has FAR too much class to do RHOBH. Best thing she can do is keep rising above as she has done, and let Brandi wind down her tantrum once she gets tired of hearing herself talk. I think most people are tired of her negative,whiny complaining...SO last year. Move on already, LeAnn has.
