The all-girl singing group, known for their hit 'Hold On,' teased the project to AOL Music during the summer of 2011, but now the news is confirmed.

The project will chronicle the three members -- Carnie Wilson, Wendy Wilson and Chynna Phillips -- as they juggle family life while staging the ultimate musical comeback.

"Wilson Phillips is extremely excited to start a reality show following the reunion of the girls and what it's like 21 years later," Carnie Wilson said in a statement. "Between touring, recording a new CD and raising nine children, the show promises love, laughter and head bumping!"

Carnie Wilson judging 'KAraoke Battle USA' on 'The Talk'Carnie Wilson left little doubt what her judging style would be on 'Karaoke Battle USA' after her appearance on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS). One clip showed Wilson extremely excited about a contestant, comparing the performance to a "romp in the bedroom," with "a big climax." Yes, she will be the outspoken, outrageous one.

Wilson explained that 'Battle,' which debuts Friday on ABC, will crown the "king and queen" of karaoke after a competition from some of the best karaoke singers in the country. As would be expected, not every contestant had a good go of it. Wilson talked about one man who sang Whitney Houston's 'All the Man That I Need,' with popping eyeballs and a bulging vein in his forehead.

Is Game Show Hostdom Dead?

Game show hosts Drew Carey, Wayne Brady and Guy Fieri
Game shows used to flood the dial of my TV back in the 1980s and '90s. And that was when my TV could only pick up eight channels, three depending on the weather.

Back then, almost everything from daytime fare to the occasional prime time bit of airtime starred game show hosts. Their purpose on television was solely to wear smart suits, make sure their teeth reached the optimum level of whiteness and keep the game moving but entertaining.

Now that game shows are making a slow but steady return to television, it seems the traditional role of "host" has turned away from the traditional "game" emcee like Chuck Woolery, Wink Martindale, Bob Barker and Art Fleming and more towards lively hosting personalities from other walks of entertainment life like Drew Carey, Wayne Brady, Howie Mandel and Guy Fieri. Does this mean that the role of the traditional TV game show has gone to that great big "Curtain No. 2" in the sky?

Carnie Wilson's reality show will be on... GSN?

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 21st 2009 12:05PM
carnie_wilson_tvReality is not relative when it comes to television. Reality television, my friends, is here to stay. So when I let you know that GSN will air Carnie Wilson: Unstapled, a new reality show starring the former singer from Wilson Phillips and the host of The Newlywed Game, you shouldn't be surprised. At least not about another celebrity reality program. The fact that it's going to be on GSN -- that's the Game Show Network -- however, that's a bit of a shocker.

GSN has fallen in love with Carnie Wilson. Kelly Goode, GSN senior vice president for original programming and development, gushed about CW, saying, "Carnie is incredibly funny and earthy. ... She's a personality the viewers have fallen in love with. And she's a hit on The Newlywed Game.

Did you know they show Newlywed Game ads during the eHarmony show?

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 7th 2009 9:06AM
The Newlywed GameGSN debuted its new version of The Newlywed Game last night. At least, I think they did. It might have been a 30-minute-long infomercial for eHarmony with a game show scattered here and there.

If you haven't heard, the show is brought to you by eHarmony, the web site where people find love and happiness. If for some reason you tuned into the show and forgot that it was brought to you by the dating web site, then the many commercials for it would have reminded you.

If you still weren't quite sure who sponsored the show, the eHarmony question that host Carnie Wilson reads during the game would remind you. Still not sure? Then the eHarmony.com logo that is on every single card that the contestants hold up several times during the game are a dead giveaway.

Maureen McCormickIf you're one of the dozens of people who watched Gone Country, CMT has another reality show for you. Maureen McCormick is joining up with former co-stars Bobby Brown and Carnie Wilson for Outsider's Inn. The actress will manage a bed and breakfast in rural Tennessee with Wilson and Brown's help. Brown is the inn's entertainment director, and Wilson is the chef.

The eight-episode season of Outsider's Inn will premiere on CMT in August. Viewers can expect to see the unlikely team of entrepreneurs handle day-to-day operations of the inn, interact with guests, and engage in bizarre behavior. I can't imagine the kind of entertainment Bobby Brown will arrange for the B&B.
