Christina Milian is heading back to TV with her own reality show.
A new docu-series called “Christina Milian Turned Up” on E! will follow the Grammy-nominated singer and actress, giving an inside look at her love, work and family life.
“Deep inside I always felt something like this was gonna happen,” Milian told E! News at New York Fashion Week. “Kind of just letting people get to know me personally so that’s the biggest thing – letting your guard down and letting people in, but that’s the exciting part because I felt that for so many years I’ve been in the business and people have seen me do different things from hosting and music videos to acting in films, but I think this is the first time in regards to music.”
She said she finds this opportunity “pretty exciting.”
“It’s those little things like making sure that I’m myself so everyone can see and they’ll get it and I’ll show them what they don’t know,” she said.
The show will also show the singer’s loud and loving Cuban-American family, including her mother and manager, Carmen, and her two sisters Danielle and Liz, the network announced this week.
Milian pointed out that her day-to-day life is relatable to other women, particularly young moms.
“It has to do with not only myself but my sisters and my mom and our working relationship,” she said. “It’s for women that are constantly grinding but we have passion for family, we laugh hard, we yell hard. We might be a little bit more passionate because we are Latino, and we are Cuban so we can be fiery sometimes. One second we can be arguing and the next we’re giving each other hugs and laughing. Family has pretty much been the drive for us.”
Along with her mother and sisters, viewers can also look forward to seeing Milian’s daughter, Violet, on the show.
“Motherhood is great,” the singer said. “I love my baby. My daughter is amazing. She’s got lots of character and she’s a great kid. She makes life easy for me and she’s so understanding and smart. She’s all over the show!”
“Christina Milian Turned Up” is set to premiere in early 2015.
