Is a storm brewing between REELZ and Mrs. Mighty Van Halen? Janie Van Halen, Eddie Van Halen’s wife and publicist, took to Twitter Sunday night to speak her mind about REELZ’ latest docu offering – Breaking the Band: Van Halen. The episode, which premiered June 17th, was touted as covering the band’s complete timeline, from its height of popularity to two ‘break ups’. While the show’s promotional materials were riddled with grammatical errors and inaccuracies (you can read it all right here), viewership was expected to be decent given the band’s nearly three year stint being out of the limelight.
Soon after it aired, many Van Halen fans expressed disgust over the channel’s coverage, agreeing with Janie’s blunt comment:
If you missed the documentary, REELZ will be airing it again on Thursday, June 21st (8PM & 11PM EST), Sunday, July 1st (10PM EST) and Monday, July 2nd (midnight EST). Of course, if the episode airs online, we’ll feature it right here at VHND.
