LeAnn Rimes wants to make sure she has the last laugh. The controversial crooner, 30, and her husband, Eddie Cibrian, 39, are hoping to star together in their own TV show.
The spouses of two years "have been shopping around a scripted comedy based on their lives together," a source tells Us Weekly. "They would play versions of themselves, kind of like on Curb Your Enthusiasm."
The series will even draw inspiration from their ongoing, real-life drama with Cibrian's former spouse (and Rimes' rival), Brandi Glanville, 40. Explains the insider, "The show will have a crazy ex-wife!"
After several pitch meetings with TV executives, the fictional series is inching closer to reality. "They've met with a few networks," adds a second insider. "Nothing is finalized yet, but they're seeing where the show could go."
