Singer-songwriter Carnie Wilson has just landed her own weight loss reality show that will air this January on the Game Show Network (GSN).
“Carnie Wilson: Unstapled” will follow the former member of the trio pop group Wilson Phillips as she tries to lose the 50 pounds she gained during her two pregnancies.
Wilson is no stranger to weight struggles. In 1999, she underwent gastric bypass surgery and had the procedure taped and shown online. She has also posed for Playboy magazine and wrote two heart-felt autobiographies. It is this candor and honesty that viewers will witness on Wilson’s show Unstapled, an obvious play on her weight loss surgery as she opens up her life and her family’s to the cameras.
In addition to her honesty, it is her infectious humor and down-to-earthness that has GSN senior vice president for original programming and development, Kelly Goode, extolling the qualities of Wilson that will surely attract viewers.
“Carnie is incredibly funny and earthy. She’s a personality the viewers have fallen in love with,” Goode said.
In addition to her own career and family, Wilson is also a spokesperson for the online support group, Lite and Hope which offers a network of services and resources for those who are overweight, obese or morbidly obese.
