Shania Twain Gets Her Own TV Show!
Shania Twain's life would certainly make a great TV show. Luckily, Oprah convinced the country superstar to do it!
Shania will star in 'Why Not? With Shania Twain,' an hour-long special on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. "The show will follow [Shania] as she begins her climb back to the top, a personal journey filled with risk, revelations and unexpected adventures," reports the network. (Quote via PEOPLE)
This is just another step in Shania's commitment to sharing her life with her fans. The newly-divorced star has been posting letters and videos on her website, telling stories of her progress in getting through her tumultuous split from husband of 14 years, Robert "Mutt" Lange. The divorce stemmed from an alleged affair between Lange and Shania's close friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. Ironically, Shania has now found comfort in the arms of the other jilted party in this alleged case of infidelity -- Marie-Anne's ex-husband, Frédéric Thiébaud.
"A dear friend and true gentleman by the name of Fred, has been the most constant companion of support for both [my son] Eja and me, and having gone through the suffering of his family splitting apart at the same time under the same extreme circumstances, he understood me better than anyone," Shania writes on her website. "We leaned on one another through the ups and downs, taking turns holding each other up. We've become stronger and closer through it all."
Shania also promises fans that she has been busy writing new music, finding inspiration through both heartbreak and her new love, and hopes to put an album out soon.
There's no word yet when 'Why Not? With Shania Twain' will premiere. The OWN network launches in January 2011.
