LeAnn Rimes: “I Am Actually a Real Housewife”

LeAnn Rimes says she’s a total domestic goddess – because sometimes she cooks dinner and drinks wine. Which is exactly what every mom of two kids (albeit “step” ones) gets to do? Eh, not exactly. LeAnn says she just loves looking for recipes online and then she hits up the grocery store for a few hours to get some dinner ingredients. This also sounds suspiciously like something a housewife wouldn’t do – who has time for that? But, she insists she’s the real deal:

“I am actually a real housewife. I’m a housewife. When I’m home, I cook. I do housewife-y things. I love to go on RealSimple.com and pick up a recipe and hang out in the grocery store for hours. I go home and have a glass of wine and cook.”

Commenting on the new reality show (or whatever weird mixed genre they intend it to be) that they’ve just made, LeAnn said that they did the show because it was just an easy thing for them to do:

“We wanted to be home with the kids. That’s one of the reasons we explored this whole world. This is us taking our lives back, in a way.”

LeAnn’s husband Eddie also commented on why they did the show:

“We wanted to work together. When we sat down and took stock of everything that’s happened over the last five years — it’s been a one-sided story. If we scripted this, it would be an incredible sitcom. This show is a satire of what has happened in our lives.”

So that’s what bulls**t looks like when it’s written down? Amazing job guys! I bet it sounded so much smarter when it was coming out of your mouths.
