Shania Twain gets real

Thursday, April 8, 2010 – Will Shania Twain follow the Osbournes? Well, if it means having your own reality TV show, then yes.

Twain, 44, will star on "Why Not? With Shania Twain," an hour-long series premiering on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network. No date was announced when the show will premier. Twain also has reportedly been working on a new CD, but there was no word on when that might be out.

Since then, Twain's marriage to producer Robert "Mutt" Lange crashed in May 2008 due to his relationship with employee Marie-Anne Thiebaud.

Few of the 16 songs are country: the first single, the catchy, uptempo "Love Gets Me Every Time" with its killer three fiddle attack, "You're Still The One," "Honey, I'm Home," (a lousy job blues song, ...
