LeAnn & Eddie Recap: LeAnn is Soooo LA [Episode 2]
At the start of the “LeAnn and Eddie” show, Eddie waxes poetic about quinoa. He makes a toast – “here’s to the top – here’s to the middle, let’s hope tonight we all get a little.” Let’s hope there’s enough red wine for this romantic catered dinner.
The opening credits is a lovely montage of terry cloth yellow & hot pink relief. The happy couple loves to snuggle in pastels. In the first scene, LeAnn is making a gastro-eruptive lemon cayenne pepper diet concoction for her southern friends – binge dieting is fun!!
LeAnn acknowledges that much like her LA friend Liz, she weighs approximately nothing. Still, she’s trying to let her friends from the South know that she has some grits on her bones.
Eddie’s job offer is frustrating -why is not quite clear. Oh my goodness! In several playfully interspersed clips the girls are getting their drink on as Eddie works out in the gym with his blue raspberry snow cone-coiffed trainer. Of course Eddie probes him for career advice. LeAnn and her friends enjoy a few more libations as Eddie trains and discusses his possible relocation to Dallas for an upcoming acting role and the impact that might have on his wife and kids. We see shirtless scenes of Eddie at the beach with his child – not exploitive at all.
At a restaurant delicately named “Feed,” LeAnn’s friend overanalyzes french fries and gluten free bread. Who’s dying for a commercial??? LeAnn’s southern friends are aching to re-school her in her pork rinds and black eye peas.
As we come from the break, pop country music spews forth and LeAnn’s friends cheer her to ride her ATV. That doesn’t take much convincing – it’s pretty down home fun! LeAnn forges a few daddy sanctioned spin-outs – though at four miles per hour she won’t be getting any speeding tickets. Next,far away, Eddie’s agent kills the party by letting him know that he has a new gig – Eww gaads work???
What could it be? Dallas is calling! Eddie just might have a gig on a drama/comedy in the state you don’t want to mess with. At the end, Eddie decides not to take take a job in Dallas – thank gawd, That would be the end of this show after all!
After the break LeAnn gets her friends together at a gay country bar – laughs and gratuitous whoop whoop sound effects ensue. At least the girls can get drunk in peace. Until LeAnn is called onstage of course. God bless L.A. and West Hollywood and getting up “randomly’ with cameras rolling. Staged or not, it looks natural and a whole lot of fun.
The next scene, in which LeAnn feeds Eddie ice-cream looks stiffer than a snow cone full of butter pecans and high blood pressure.
Til next week…
