  9. 9

    Never watched a Lifetime TV movie, and don't plan to. 3 cheers for real movies.

  13. 13

    It's really just a publicity stunt anyways. Isn't it so obvious?

  14. 14

    Oh, hell NO!!!

    i did watch Northern Lights, partly because i would have anyways and partly because of the scandal. i think leanne was horrible in it but i could stare at eddie all day long :) he's just hot hot hot!!

    i was expecting for the ratings to go up since al the media stuff about them. sort of like if there had been rumors of brad and angelina hooking up before Mr. and Mrs. Smith came out, the film would have made millions more than it did.

    Re: aj – Honk, baby! That's from his random blog closing line generator. It's only equipped with about 5 combinations including: "so sad", and the ever popular "what do you think?" I think it's F1 on his keyboard.

    I watched it and liked it.

  20. 20

    I watched it. It was your typical lifetime movie - not overly amazing acting skills but good enough. The sex scene was definitely not what they made it out to be in the previews.

  21. 21

    She can't act, she needed the scandel s people would watch her crappy lifetime movie

  23. 23

    This whole scandal has had "ratings ploy" on it since day one.

  24. 24

    Hell No! that shit looked boring and stupid just like everything on Lifetime IS! And the whole cheating thing made me want to watch it even LESS! I think Leeanne Rimes is fugly and manly so I don't know how she even got the part and why that guy would cheat on his wife with her!

  26. 26

    Like I said, it was all promotion from the start.

    The affair came in the week, it was suppose to air… Duh…

  27. 27

    I told you so!!! A Lifetime Exec LEAKED the story to get ratings!!!!!!! Why didn't the news of the affair come out months ago when they were filming???? It just happens to make the news a few days before the that crapstastic movie airs!! Coincidence?? I don't think so!!!

  28. VGirl says – reply to this


    All that "scandal" failed to get me curious

  29. 29

    that isn't surprising?

    btw, can you use gifs as avatars? or do they not work?

  30. 30

    i watched it. i thought he was the killer at first. i liked the lifetime movie 'devils lake' with tara reid better tho.

  31. 31

    Hell no. I ain't gonna watch no hillbilly fornicator.

  32. 32

    HONK! HONK!!

  33. 33

    I can't believe she cheated on her hubby!!! HER!?!?!?!….. it's shocking to me.

  34. 34

    didn't watch the movie though.

  35. 35

    didnt' watch i forgot all about it by sunday

  36. 36

    i watched it… and it was good! Eddie is so freak'n HOTT!

  37. 37


  38. 38

    I actually did start to watch it…but it was so bad that I had to stop watching it after the first hour or so. Eddie was good…and of course he's easy on the eyes…but omg, LeAnn cannot act!! And the sex scene was not nearly as good as the commercials made it out to be. I turned it off and went to bed after an hour of the movie…I don't even care how it ended.

  39. 39

    Oh I watched it….and was surprised. I thought that since they were obviously having an affair that the chemistry in the movie between them would be really hot and steamy… I was really let down. I saw zero chemistry between them.. AND as suspected the acting was mediocre even by Lifetime standards. The story by Nora Roberts which is from what this movie is based off of could have been a much better film presentation if other actors would have played the roles. Needless to say though, its Lifetime we are talking about.. the expectation for the cheese factor is always anticipated. I guess it makes some sense as far as the no chemistry between LeAnn and Eddie Cibrian.. she has been married for seven years to her gay best friend.. maybe if HE would have been cast in HER role.. it would have been a bit steamier and more interesting… there would have without question been more chemistry!!!!

    IT WAS ALL PUBLICITY….great but didnt watch

  41. 41

    NO, did not watch. And the outing her husband by a caller to a radio show was not motivating publicity either.

  42. 42

    Yes I did watch it……..NOT because of the affair scandal but because i planned to watch it weeks ago when the ads were running for this movie.

    It was a great movie!

  43. 43

    I watched it..She's not a very good actress.

    It sounds like the incident was staged to try to create ratings.

  47. 47

    I started to watch, but fell asleep 20 minutes in. When I got up I switched it. I don't agree that the outside relationship was staged. The man has a wife and two kids. No one in their right mind would do that for a tv movie of the week. However, I wouldn't be surprised if someone associated with the production tipped the mags off.

  48. 48

    Haha, that's funny. I totally forgot about this and immediately after seeing her face on Lifetime, I realized it was a "Lifetime Movie" and switched the channel. Too bad.

  49. 49

    Wow….I guess I'm the opposite of most people in America. Knowing that whore fucked someone else's husband would have made me skip watching the movie with her in it (if I'd even been interested in watching such shit in the first place).

  50. 50

    she has a white trash face. it's weird, but true.

  51. 51

    I planned to watch it before this whole mess. But U know cheating is wrong.When u take vows in front of God and u you break them u and the other cheater is wrong.I have no respect for either parties at this point.Goes to show you everyone damn cheats already! The movie was ok but not good.Kinda poor acting.Leann was good in Holiday in your Heart but this movie not so much:(

  52. 52

    I caught the end while I was switching channels ~and OMG~ I hadn't realized how FUCKING HOT Eddie is (those dimples!! *sigh*)… and then realized how plain unattractive LeAnn is! He can't really have cheated on his wife with HER of all women?! UGH ~ ~ She shouldn't quit her day job in any case, acting just is NOT her forte.

    Glad to know they did a little P.R. ahead of time. It appears to have worked.

  54. detox says – reply to this


    oh hell no i didnt watch any of that!

  55. 55

    oh my god i loved the movie. you guys don't know the whole story so stop judging…….

  56. 56

    Since when is this chick an "actress" anyway? Also you would have to have a pretty lame tv lineup to watch this crap. Not to mention the fact that she is butt-ass ugly

  57. 57

    it was completely ridiculous! the plot was horrible and predictable (not unlike other lifetime movies……) and leann is really NOT an actress!

  58. Laxer says – reply to this


    There are not many people who would resist a little alone time with Eddie.

  59. 59

    NO, I didn't tune in to watch that BS. They were seeing each other though. I feel really embarrased and bad for LeAnne cause she truly thought Eddie was into her. Producers, etc of the show were the ones that made the 'leak' for publicity and ratings.

  60. Aero says – reply to this


    I did not watch because the whole affair thing was staged for ratings… and I hate a media whore (Leanne). If you are that good, people will watch.. if you suck, they won't. Don't trick people into watching you, that's pathetic.
