As a united front, the couple made sure to make clear on social media and on their TV show that after falling in love and having an affair, they did not regret it. Their love and the bond they share, they said, was so great that they wouldn’t change it for the world.
However, LeAnn had a few things to say about how it was handled. She admitted that it wasn’t done the right way. It got “really messy,” the singer said. She even said that if she could go back and time and change things for the sake of everyone involved, she would.
Tabloid Mills Keep on Turning
In 2018, with seven years of marital bliss under their belts and an enduring front of solidarity, the headlines flared up again. Stories alleged that Eddie had banned LeAnn from the set of his TV show "Take Two."
Sources went so far as to say he had tired of her “diva” antics on the set of "CSI: Miami." Obviously, this was false. Eddie told reporters that having LeAnn on set was a wonderful way to spend time with her amongst their busy schedules.
On their fifth wedding anniversary, LeAnn celebrated the love she and Eddie share on Instagram. The gushy post was just the thing that triggers Brandi. These social media savvy women were acutely aware of each other’s presence and made good use of the platform to air their views.
In 2016, LeAnn wrote, “Our bond is like no other.” She doted on Eddie, calling him, “my lover, my friend, my heart, my everything!” She also said that they have been through “hell and back” and wouldn’t change a thing.
It’s Christmas Eve
LeAnn teamed up with the Hallmark Channel for a 2018 holiday film called "It’s Christmas Eve." LeAnn played the lead and co-wrote three songs for the soundtrack. The singer said that the project was the perfect match, and she was thrilled to be able to be involved in the creative process.
She especially liked that the theme of blended families was prominent in the movie. She told FOX, “It’s something that’s important for me to shed light on—the blended family environment in a really positive way because it’s not something that gets talked about very often.”
Talking About Blended Families
The Christmas movie opened up an opportunity for a conversation about unconventional families. LeAnn was happy to express her feelings. She said that blending families is a challenge, of course.
But mostly, she wanted to reiterate that she and Eddie had been married seven years (by the time the movie aired on TV) and that, she thought, they were doing pretty good. The couple overcame adversity and were enjoying a very happy family life.
