LeAnn Rimes wants to star in a sitcom. The 30-year-old singer is reportedly shopping around a comedy series based on her real life and hopes to star in the show alongside her actor husband of two years Eddie Cibrian, 39.
"[They] have been shopping around a scripted comedy based on their lives together. They would play versions of themselves, kind of like on Curb Your Enthusiasm," a source said.
The insider also revealed that the couple plan to include a "crazy ex-wife" in the show that will be inspired by Eddie's ex-wife Brandi Glanville, 40, who has had numerous public spats with LeAnn.
But LeAnn and Eddie have decided not to feature his sons with Brandi, Mason, nine, and Jake, six, on the show. "Mason and Jake are not involved. If kids end up being on it, they would be played by actors -- not Eddie's children," the insider added.
Brandi Glanville wants LeAnn Rimes to join the cast of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.
While the pair have been involved in a public and bitter feud over LeAnn's current and Brandi's former husband Eddie Cibrian, Brandi, 40, wants LeAnn to join the reality series in order to make her look better.
"Brandi is a very smart cookie and thinks that if LeAnn were to join the cast, the audience would hate her even more. Brandi loves playing the victim and having LeAnn on the show would allow her to continue in that role as the long-suffering, spurned ex-wife," a source said.
LeAnn Rimes has stepped closer to a job on The X Factor judging panel.
The "Can't Fight The Moonlight" hitmaker - who is believed to be filling one of the spots left vacant by axed judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger - reportedly spent all day Wednesday locked in a secret meeting with show chief Nigel Lythgoe.
While fellow X Factor boss Simon Cowell was not present, it was said to be a "great meeting," X17online.com reports.
In addition to her 18 years in the music business, LeAnn brings with her the accolade of being the younger Grammy winner in history at the age of just 14.
While the 29-year-old singer will find out whether she has landed the lucrative gig in the next three weeks, it is also thought troubled star Britney Spears is being lined up to join the panel: "Britney has had a tough few years but this would put her back at the very top. She would be great for the show and it could be great for her. In terms of excitement and intrigue Britney would top them all," an insider said.

I guess it’s like they say - there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
Those curious to see LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian’s on-screen action (we’ve already seen the off-screen version), gave Lifetime its best numbers of the year. Saturday’s premiere of Northern Lights, an adaptation of a Nora Roberts novel, was watched by approximately 4.5 million voyeurs. That’s the largest audience the cable channel has seen for one of its movies in 2009.
According to Us Weekly, the costars - both married - have been engaging in an affair since filming the project last fall. Although Cibrian has denied any wrongdoing, the country singer has only said that this is a “difficult time” for her and her loved ones.
