Carnie Wilson: Unstapled airs TONIGHT (1/14) on GSN

GSN is extending its honeymoon with Carnie Wilson, signing "The Newlywed Game" host to star in a reality show for the network.

In a move that represents a major brand expansion for GSN, Wilson will headline "Carnie Wilson: Unstapled," a docusoap revolving around the former pop star's current life as a gameshow host, media personality and wife/mother.

World of Wonder Prods. -- the red-hot production company behind "Million Dollar Listing," "Ru-Paul's Drag Race" and VH1's upcoming Fantasia Barrino series -- is producing "Unstapled." It's set to premiere Jan. 14, with Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell serving as executive producers.

Wilson's weight issues will be part of the drama on "Unstapled," but the series will focus more on her role as a mom and aspiring businesswoman. Among Wilson's biggest passions: turning her love of baking into a money-making proposition.

"It's my passion and my outlet. It's something I have to do," Wilson told TheWrap. "I get bitchy if I don't feed people. I think it's about me living vicariously for them."

Wilson's efforts to expand her baking career into a bigger business will be chronicled on "Unstapled," as will her plans to launch a clothing line. Both ventures, along with a possible Wilson Phillips reunion tour timed to next year's 20th anniversary of the group, should provide plenty of fodder for the show.
