Coming Soon: A Jodie Sweetin Reality Show!

at . Comments

Reality TV has been missing a series about a former child star, turned crystal meth addict, turned exploitive celebrity mom.

Don't worry, though, a Jodie Sweetin reality show is about to fill this pressing void.

“We’re going to start shooting in a couple months,” Sweetin told People Magazine recently. “We are in talks with a couple of networks right now. We have one picked out, but nothing is signed yet.”

So, What made Sweetin and husband Cody Herpin decide to dive into the world of reality TV?

“We actually got approached about doing it by multiple people,” the actress said. “It was one of those things where we were like, ‘Wow. Let’s totally do it.’ I think it’s sort of a fun way to show the other side of celebrity and a sort of semi-normal life.”

As for the track record of past couples that craved attention more than a successul relationship - such as Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson; Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler, Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro - Sweetin said she and Herpin are “hoping to break the reality show curse.”

Right. Good luck with that.
