LeAnn & Eddie Recap: Eating and Tweeting Booty Gate [Episode 4 ]

Posted on Aug 8 2014 - 4:23pm by Carole B.

LeAnn & Eddie

Last night’s episode of “LeAnn & Eddie” starts off with a visit to a meat market (no, not some trendy LA nightclub where singles sweat it out – an actual butcher) where LeAnn and Eddie are stocking up on ribs and steaks for their barbecue. They’re expecting 25 guests, but LeAnn seems determined to snap up the store’s entire stock of meat. Eddie laments that he has married an “unstoppable spending machine.” After much back and forth, they settle for six racks of ribs and several steaks. Beef, it’s what’s for dinner!

LeAnn & Eddie

Back at home, LeAnn mentions that she has spoken with her publicist, Kira, who has warned her to keep a low profile and avoid getting into Twitter wars. Eddie comments that LeAnn doesn’t start virtual feuds, she just reacts to stupidity. Could this be a nod to the invisible third person/villain in every scene, the notorious Brandi?

In an educational moment, LeAnn teaches Eddie the definition of the text shortcut “BTW,” and its current derivative, “BT-dub.” At least that’s what all the cool kids, including his assistant Terrell, say.

After digesting the word of the day, Eddie learns that he must wear a swimsuit for his upcoming photo shoot for Men’s Fitness. He feigns a state of panic! It’s not like he already has personal training sessions everyday or anything… He’s going to kick it up a notch: two workouts a day and a starvation diet.

Eddie asks about a picture LeAnn tweeted. Oh, the innocent one of me making pancakes (in a bra, thong and tiny retro apron – who does that?), as she innocently flutters her lashes. She’s positively aghast as Eddie points out that her thong and much of her bare derrière is showing in her impromptu pancake pinup. How was she to know there was a mirror right behind her? Does she expect us to buy this? We all have access to selfie photo technology. We all know that it’s ridiculously obvious she knew exactly what she was putting out there for the world to see – and methinks it wasn’t pancakes.

LeAnn & Eddie

I’m beginning to suspect that these two engineered this entire “reality” show to lead up to this moment – baring their gluten free, sculpted-into-submission buns and abs.

At the barbecue, Eddie tries to talk LeAnn’s mom Belinda into a chicken fight in the pool but she’d rather not ruin her carefully coiffed hairdo by getting it wet.

It’s time for a heart to heart and Belinda twangs, “What’s this I hear about you tweeting your butt on the Twitter?” Mama Belinda disapproves.

LeAnn & Eddie

Eddie tries to smooth things over by telling his mama-in-law that his wife has been blessed with good butt genes. Belinda laughs and turns around to show her booty off. Guess butt exhibitionism runs in the family (the primate family!).

LeAnn & Eddie

Eddie’s trainer MJ, never one to miss a good meal, is stuffing his face with ribs and parmesan. As Eddie picks at a salad, his mom, Hortensia, tempts him with his favorite: rhubarb pie. Even Eddie’s assistant, Terrell is flaunting possibly stolen baked goods in front of him.

LeAnn & Eddie

Next, we join LeAnn as she is choosing costumes for an upcoming performance. Her stylist suggests some sexy options, but she claims she wants dress more conservatively. After helping her try on a few ensembles, the stylist asks about the now infamous butt tweet. LeAnn is (pretends to be) appalled. “People shouldn’t just talk about my ass, I do have boobs!” she jokes.

Eddie is at the gym with his trainer, MJ, preparing for the photo shoot. His assistant Terrell is also there but seems utterly uninterested in working out, BT-dub.

LeAnn & Eddie

Long-suffering publicist Kira calls LeAnn and breaks the news that she’s trending on Twitter: #RimesWithBooty. She instructs her to google “LeAnn Rimes butt pic.” LeAnn is glad that at least her affair isn’t one of the first results on the search engine. LeAnn whines that she knows she hasn’t earned much sympathy from the public and doesn’t know how she keeps screwing herself over and over again.

Eddie asks how things are going with “BootyGate.” In the interview, LeAnn claims that her biggest concern is that her two wonderful stepkids might be able to google the scandal. When she complains to Eddie, he responds that he’s there booty’s biggest fan and gives her a comforting hug.

LeAnn & Eddie

After the break we see Eddie getting a spray tan including some ab definition. Next, LeAnn heads to see Kira and asks how serious the butt-related PR fiasco is. Kira assures her it’s not “sex tape bad.” LeAnn reminds us that she’s only done one negative thing (the affair) and everything since then has been perceived as negative. Kira’s damage control advice is to wait for someone else to “screw up worse,” but LeAnn doesn’t want to sit on her hands and wait.

It’s “game time” and Eddie is at his photo shoot. He tells Terrell that when it’s done they are headed to In-N-Out for a double double.

Eddie is astounded when he finds out he won’t be slipping into skimpy bathing suits after all – instead he is donning a classic, tailored suit and shirt. He’s relieved yet annoyed with Terrell who misinformed him about the wardrobe. As Eddie models the high end menswear, he orders Terrell to get him burgers, donuts and a milkshake. To cap off the shoot, chisel-faced Eddie jumps into the pool, pinstripes and all.

LeAnn & Eddie Show

Back at home, Eddie says he’s fat and happy as he polishes off a bowl something yummy. LeAnn describes Kira’s PR strategy options: take legal action (against whom? LeAnn?), let the scandal die down, or distract from it. How? LeAnn asks Eddie how much he loves her. He agrees to whatever she has in mind as long as it doesn’t involve dieting. He wonders what he has gotten himself into.

LeAnn & Eddie Show

LeAnn lifts Eddie’s shirt and snaps a pic of his butt. She wants to him to bare his bare butt, but he demurs and only lets her photograph half (a crescent moon). Despite all that modesty, operation #ButtTweetDistraction has been a success! Eddie’s ass has been retweeted many times. LeAnn chuckles that she’s glad her man has her back..side.

      Sure there are! Hmmmmm
      LeAnn Rimes is such a pig
      Eddie is a loser that has a brain the size of a fig
      They like attention and want the world to know
      That they are in love but just on the reality show.

      LeAnn likes Eddie’s looks
      And, Eddie like LeAnn’s checkbook
      Eddie really likes a girl named Lizzy
      It send LeAnn into such a Tizzy
      LeAnn will do anything for attention
      Sex tape star, stalker,tweeter, drunk, too many to mention.
      She is a very sad women who wont be put away on a shelf
      She will do what it takes to stay in the press, even dance with an elf
      But she is LeAnn, a star don’t ya know,
      She sings, she tweets, she stalks, but only on the down low
      She has fake twitter account to torture and harrass people doesn’t like
      The haters dont care they just give her the finger and tell her to take a hike.
      LeAnn is losing it- her money is running out
      Now, going into fashion and designing, it that what this is all about.
      She has no sense of fashion
      Tweeting pictures of her butt is her true passion.
      The poor little homewrecker, got what she wanted, now didnit she
      But the man of her dreams has one foot out the door
      That’s why LeAnn has to do everything she can for publicity
      She needs to stay in the limelight in order to hold on
      To bad she does not realize, the fork was stuck in her, she is done.

      So long, farwell, wish we could say it has been nice
      Maybe one day you will wash that hair, it looks like you have lice.
      Stay hidden, quiet and dont come back
      Bored up your house, and have your man help you pack
      Go away to a far far land –
      Find yourself another man
      One who will like you, for you
      May be hard to do – but if you get stuck
      Just show him your sex tape – let him know, that you know how to f ___k
      As far as Eddie goes, he already has a new love
      His new women has the face of a dove
      He felt it was difficult to be married to you
      But he will rise above. He will be ok – just take a look
      He got to walk away with half your checkbook
      Silly girl, silly rabbit, we all tried to warm you
      But with you it must be habbit
      Love for sale – buy them and then they bail

    I really don’t care what they do or don’t do, but thanks for taking the time to do a great recap Carole! 😉

      Hi Nan. Check your email.

      • nan/4 August 9, 2014 at 3:30 pm -

        Done and done. 😉 Have a nice Saturday Doc!

    Carole I’m glad it’s you and not me that has to watch these two. Good recap!

    • Carole B. August 8, 2014 at 8:18 pm -

      Ah LuLu, Thanks for your sympathy! It’s tough, especially since the show is on at 10:30pm PST and that is prime time for me to either be out to dinner & drinks (I live in San Francisco, land of late night vittles), or on the couch with dinner and a bottle of prescription Pinot. 😉 Still – it is fun and I am glad to be a part of the snarky, corny-yet-clever team. I love your scoops, Reality LuLu – you crack me up!

  4. Dr Seuss August 8, 2014 at 5:42 pm -

    Good recap Carole. I think they just created this story to make fun of themselves. She knows there are many many pics of her butt on Google. It’s so obvious Eddie is the least interested in her.

  5. Dave August 8, 2014 at 5:57 pm -

    He’s the biggest B movie star and she is so ugly she can’t even take a pic right.

  6. Josie August 8, 2014 at 6:03 pm -

    Great recap. I like the show. I’m glad I gave it a try. It’s fun and entertaining. She should use this show to focus more on her singing. Eddie is a good looking man.

    • Name August 12, 2014 at 6:28 am -

      Yes, Eddie is a good looking man with a horseface girl. Why? hmmmmm $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Thank you for an excellent recap, Carole B.! 🙂
    It’s only a half hour show, but I can’t get into it. Sorry. 🙁
    I’ll just read your recaps! 🙂

    I find it halarious that this little wantobe is sounding off about her butt pic and thinks the public is so stupid. No one posts a pic without looking at it first.. She will use anything for attention.. Well Mrs. “buttaface” should use her sex tape or her stalkiing (wewedrama.blogspot) of Brandi.. I think everyone has just about had it with her and her looneytunes. No one wants to see that. She is the worst role modle for a child ever! Sounds to me like her money is running low and when gone – Eddie will be bye bye! When Karma finally hits this horsefase looking girl in the BUTT – then she can post that pic. I guess we should be thankful – a butt shot from her is better than a face shot. Also, now miss I did reality TV and release another losing album – now I think I wil go into fashion to keep my hubby – well first someone needs to teach her about it – she dresses like a homeless person. No sense of style what so ever. Gosh with this mixed up creature ever go away. Someone needs to start a collection to assist her with her therapy bills. I dont think she can afford it any longer.
