I’d make a joke about Brandi Glanville laughing manically as she repeatedly pokes a pin in the wallet area of her Eddie Cibrian voodood doll, but that unemployed troublemaker is in no position to be laughing at anyone’s financial situation. But back to Eddie and his Spitting Image puppet-looking wife LeAnn Rimes. Eddie and LeAnn are allegedly so broke that they have been forced to beg their friends for money. Except it’s not like a “Can I borrow $20?” kind of thing, it’s more like a “Can you loan me a couple hundred thousand dollars” friendship-killing kind of thing.
According to Star and OK!, Eddie and LeAnn wanted to buy a new house back in 2012. The house was $3 million, which is a lot of money for two barely-employed people like Eddie and LeAnn. But apparently they really wanted that house, so they scraped together $550,000 for a down payment and took out a $2.1 million loan from their bank. Unfortunately for them, that wasn’t enough and the bank refused to loan them more money. That’s when Eddie and LeAnn got the great idea to use their friends Dave and Lizzie Fradin like a Check Into Cash and asked them to cover the rest. Star says Dave and Lizzie loaned Eddie and LeAnn $350,000 for their home. This was three years ago, and they haven’t seen a dime since.
Eddie and LeAnn are apparently still friends with the Fradins, but they could lose more than just their friendship if they don’t pay them back. Documents show that Eddie and LeAnn listed Dave Fradin as a beneficiary of trust with their bank, which means that Dave could foreclose on their house. OK! claims that Dave and Lizzie recently filed paperwork saying they want to see the money ASAP or else.
We already know that Eddie and LeAnn would do just about anything to get on TV, so I really hope this mess makes its way to Judge Judy, even though there’s no way it will. I can picture it now: Eddie and LeAnn will claim that $350,000 was a “gift” from the Fradins. They’ll play dumb and claim nothing was ever said about paying it back. Then Judge Judy will look at Byrd, roll her eyes, and shout “BALONEY!” before side-eyeing the Fradins for loaning that much money to Eddie and LeAnn.
