'Why Not? with Shania Twain' series premiereEverybody else has their own reality show, so why not Shania Twain? Oprah Winfrey must have agreed, because now we have the premiere of 'Why Not? With Shania Twain' (Sun., 11PM ET on OWN). Maybe the name of her show was her response when she was approached about doing a reality series.

Twain proved very honest and open in front of the camera, talking about her divorce and her family's financial struggles growing up. She even became emotional at one point when talking about the death of her parents in a car accident in 1987.

Twain was 8-10 hours away when the accident happened. "They explained to me on the phone that they were dead. That they died in the car accident."

That accident left the then-20 year old Twain basically alone to raise her younger brothers and sisters. She supported them by singing in a resort, and it wasn't until after they moved out and started their own lives that Twain's country music career really kicked off.
