Hoping to replicate Kardashian success, tabloid favourites LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are joining forces with VH1 for a show set to premiere on VH1 in the with six half-hour episodes.

Multiple Grammy Award-winning artist LeAnn Rimes first burst on the music scene at the age of 13. Since then she has gone on to sell more than 40 million albums, has scored 13 Top 10 hits and has won numerous music awards. Her latest album, Spitfire, debuted at No 9 on the Billboard Country Charts and No 4 on iTunes. Eddie Cibrian is an actor who got his start in daytime television but moved to prime time with the hit series Third Watch. Since then he has gone on to star in various television series, including Invasion, The Playboy Club, CSI Miami and Tilt.

The show will follow the married couple as they look to balance careers and learn how to navigate the co-parenting of Eddie's two sons. Life outside the home is a different story, where paparazzi stalk them.

"We are really excited to be working together on a unique show that will give you a glimpse into who we really are, or better yet, who we're really not," said the couple in a statement.

"LeAnn and Eddie are both talented entertainers who have really captured the public's imagination in the last couple of years, but there is so much more to them than what you read in the tabloids," said Tom Calderone, president of VH1. "This is going to be a really fun show in which we hope to reveal what their lives are really like from the normalcy of their home life, to what drives them artistically, to the chaos of their celebrity life."
