Eddie to LeAnn: I Finally Have a Job!

Eddie Cibrian & LeAnn Rimes

Eddie Cibrian is making money, honey. The actor has been short on work ever since marrying LeAnn Rimes in 2011 but is now experiencing an interesting comeback, thanks to his wife.

The country singer, 32, has agreed to let her hubby, 41, be the sole earner of their new VH1 reality show, LeAnn and Eddie, to make him feel more masculine. “She wants Eddie to have money of his own,” a close source tells Star. “She thinks it’s a good way to boost his self-esteem and make him feel like he doesn’t have to rely on her.”

Pals say that while LeAnn doesn’t need the extra cash because of her recording career, the couple should be more careful when it comes to their finances. “Their show may not last long,” admits the friend. “It’s been torn apart by critics, and the ratings are low.”

Nothing another cheating scandal can’t fix!
