Once estranged from his famous daughter, LeAnn Rimes’ father Wilbur will be featured on her reality show “LeAnn & Eddie.”

“My dad and I have been through a lot together and we’ve come out the other side in the relationship and that’s pretty… amazing, so I’m glad people get to see my dad. He’s been dragged through the media for so long for being this horrible person and I’m glad people get to see my dad for what he really is,” Rimes said.

Rimes fell out with her dad in 2000, when she sued him and her former manager over allegations they stole millions of dollars from her during her early career.

They reconciled in 2002.
