Carnie Wilson is baaaaack! The songstress will be debuting a reality TV series, Carnie Wilson: Unstapled, about her life as a working mother, the Associated Press reports. Carnie is far from worried about opening up her life on TV, because as she says, she’s comfortable with being candid. Carnie’s new reality series will be airing in January on GSN, which also airs the other show she hosts, The Newlywed Game.
After showing her 1999 obesity surgery online, the singer-songwriter of the group Wilson Philips isn’t too worried about having her own reality show. The show’s title actually is a play on Carnie’s gastric-bypass surgery.
“I’ve written two autobiographies and posed for Playboy. I think I’ve pretty much been out there,” but she added, “This is definitely the most exposed I’ve ever been.”
Kelly Goode, GSN senior vice president for original programming and development, said they decided to add a reality series to their line-up of game shows based on the viewer response to Carnie.
“Carnie is incredibly funny and earthy. … She’s a personality the viewers have fallen in love with,” Kelly said.
The TV host hopes that her father, Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, will make make an appearance on her show and that they’ll record together.
Carnie said viewers will initially see her trying to lose 50 pounds of “baby weight.” She has a newborn Luci, and a toddler, Lola, with her husband Rob Bonfiglio.
