If it wasn't bad enough that he lost his job, Eddie Cibrian was also rushed to the hospital on Tuesday.
While shooting The Playboy Club, Eddie Cibrian apparently got his foot got caught under a 200 pound steel door. He suffered a deep gash on his right heel, and was then taken to Northwestern Medical Hospital.
I've done a lot of klutzy things in my life. Getting my foot caught under a door is not one of them. I don’t even know how that happens.
NBC made the announcement on Tuesday that it was canceling the show. Poor ratings and bad reviews were to blame, but the network is continuing to shoot, hoping to sell the series to another network. So I guess Eddie doesn’t have to file for unemployment right away.
On the show, Cibrian played a lawyer and key holder to the infamous 1960s club. So how does O.G. Hugh Hefner feel about it? The Hef tweeted:
“I’m sorry NBC’s ‘The Playboy Club’ didn’t find it’s audience. It should have been on cable, aimed at a more adult audience.”
“That, or, we should stop trying to copy Mad Men.”
"Fans of 'The Playboy Club' are really upset at the cancellation," Hefner added. Yep, they sure are. All six of them.
The show only opened to an audience of 5 million when it debuted. A week later, the viewers plummeted to only 3.8 million. And the third was even lower, at 3.2 million viewers.
Advertisers also backed out when the Parents Television Council criticized the show for its sexual content.
NBC announced that Brian Williams' news show, Rock Center will replace the time slot, beginning October 31.
Eddie and wife LeAnn Rimes have been having a stroke of bad luck recently. Last week, a car crashed into Rimes' home in Hidden Hills, California. The 20 year-old driver had a suspended license and was suspected to be driving under the influence when he crashed into her fence.
Rimes Tweeted: “To address the accident that happened in front of our home this morning, everyone is ok and safe. However, if drunk driving was involved it is terribly sad. My family could have been seriously injured and any situation where someone is drinking and driving should not be taken lightly. Needless to say, it was a very unsettling call to receive this morning.” She added, “thank goodness the young driver and everyone at home are ok.”
One more little incident likes this, and I'll be convinced that Brandi Glanville has Eddie and LeAnn voodoo dolls.
