Hollywood, California. – No stranger to the reality TV realm, actress, singer and dancer Christina Milian is returning to the small screen, only this time she’s getting “Turned Up.”
The star’s E! reality series, "Christina Millian Turned Up" follows Milian along with mother Carmen and sisters Danielle and Lizzy for an inside look into their daily lives.
It’s easy to assume “Christina Milian Turned Up” is just a Cuban version of their network’s sister show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashian.” But aside from a similar recipe, (outspoken sisters and a mom for a manager) the similarities stop there.
The three Cuban sisters have their own set of skills. Aside from Christina’s performance talents, middle sister Danielle is an accomplished hairstylist and youngest sister Lizzy is a culinary school graduate. In Sunday's episode, Christina Milian heads to a plastic surgeon to explore getting butt implants.
Whether it’s flirtation to the spice of life to being passionate to just how we raise our children as well, and how we are as a family, we like stick together, no matter what. The Cuban part plays a part everyday

“Whether it’s flirtation to the spice of life to being passionate to just how we raise our children as well, and how we are as a family, we like stick together, no matter what. The Cuban part plays a part everyday,” said Christina.
“I follow a page that’s called, ‘We’re not yelling, we’re Cuban,’ so if that tells you anything about us…” sister Danielle offered.
While Christina is no stranger to reality TV, that wasn’t the case for the rest of her family. In fact, Danielle’s marriage struggles with husband Richard plays out in full force on the series, for all the world to see (and judge.)
“It’s definitely different getting a lot of other people’s point of view,” she confessed. “It’s hard, cause you’re like, ‘I want to tell you [the viewers] the whole story but, it’s only a half hour long.” she said with a laugh.
“It’s interesting. It’s great though, because you know what, I wear my heart on my sleeve and I’m an open book,” she concluded.
Older sister Christina chimed in to defend her sister.
“We joke around about what people say and everything. We don’t take it personal. At this point, this is our lives and this is who we are and it’s entertainment.”
Speaking of entertainment, will either Christina or Lizzy be entertaining any special guests come Valentine’s Day?
“I’m very single right now so all offers are on the table, available,” said Lizzy.
“Christina Milian Turned Up” airs each Sunday night on E! at 10/9c .
