La Toya Jackson to star in reality show

03 August 2012, 15:51

 Los Angeles - La Toya Jackson is to star in a new reality TV show.

The 56-year-old singer-and-actress has signed a deal with the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) to appear in Life With La Toya.

La Toya will be followed by cameras that will film every aspect of her day-to-day activities from her business dealings to her life with her famous family - and she can't wait to get started.

In a statement, she said: "I am so pleased to be working with television legend Oprah Winfrey and to be a part of the OWN family. This will be one of the most exciting adventures of my life."


OWN co-president Sheri Salata added: "We are delighted to work with La Toya to bring this new show to OWN viewers."

The series will be produced by World of Wonder with Ja-Tail Television Exec and will be produced by La Toya, Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Jeffre Phillips and Charles Cook.

It is scheduled to premiere in 2013.

The wider Jackson family has endured a tumultuous time in recent weeks.

La Toya's siblings Janet, Rebbie and Randy have filed a letter criticising the Michael Jackson Estate accusing the executors of failing at their job - although since the document was filed Jermaine and Tito have withdrawn their signatures - since the music icon died in June 2009.

Katherine Jackson, 82, lost custody of Michael's three kids, Prince Michael, 15, Paris, 14, and 10-year-old Blanket after she went to Arizona for several days to recover from an illness.

She was reinstated on Thursday by a LA judge as the permanent co-guardian of the children with her nephew Tito Joe 'TJ' Jackson - who was given temporary control of them in Katherine's absence.
