'LeAnn & Eddie' recap: Exploding ovaries

Season 1 | Episode 5 | “Babes and a Baby”  | Aired Aug 14, 2014

We all knew this day way coming: the day in which LeAnn catches baby fever and Eddie starts to sweat. Well, ladies and gentleman, here it is. You can practically see LeAnn’s ovaries explode this week. Oh, and Eddie hangs out with Mike the hairdresser.

Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 6.03.12 PMThere is no denying that these two are cute. When they go on a hike and Eddie teases LeAnn about rattlesnakes and peeing in the woods, it’s so cute you can barely stand it. But when LeAnn’s friend Chrissy visits and brings her baby, then conveniently asks LeAnn to babysit, Eddie acts a little too self-satisfied when LeAnn gets overwhelmed.

Of course, this wouldn’t be reality TV without a little producer interference, so about the time that LeAnn Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 6.08.31 PMsettles in for a normal, run-of-the-mill babysitting experience, her Hollywood producer calls her into an emergency meeting. She leaves the house hauling 100 pounds of baby accessories and teetering on six-inch heels—I can see the panic-sweat form when she realizes it takes an advanced degree to get a baby seat in.

Once LeAnn gets the baby secured in the seat and arrives at the restaurant, we get to watch her try to hold an adult conversation over the crying and banging. While LeAnn becomes more and more flustered, the other guys at the meeting become more and more annoyed, which annoyed me. They offer her a deal, but she holds to her commitment to watching Baby V. She’ll just have to pull an all-nighter. Good for you, LeAnn.

Screen Shot 2014-08-14 at 6.07.24 PMEddie gets the heck out of dodge to go meet his hairdresser, Mike, for drinks at a trendy open-air bar. We met Mike in an earlier scene as he and Eddie discussed Brandi (not the first or the only time she came up this episode) and how using his broken phone as a pickup prop works every time. When Eddie arrives, he sees that Mike has invited two very attractive women to join them, and he proceeds to alienate them completely with his outright shock at their presence. The girls were better sports than I would have been and played along pretty well. Sheesh, Eddie.

Worried about appearances, Eddie says LeAnn’s name about a thousand times, and even shows the girls a picture of Baby V on his phone. Speaking of exploding ovaries, these girls didn’t mind Eddie playing wingman at all.

The episode winds down as LeAnn puts the baby down for the night, and she admits to Eddie that while she still wants a baby, right now might not be the right time. Eddie turns away from her and pumps his fist in the air. Just kidding—that didn’t happen, but judging from the relief spilling off of him, he might as well have.

Do y’all think Eddie and LeAnn are ready for babies of their own? What should they name them? Leddie? Edla? I’m all ears.

LeAnn & Eddie, rated TV-14, airs Thursdays at 10:30/9:30C on VH1.
