La Toya Jackson Reality Show Coming to OWN

You know what they say: Desperate times call for ratings-attracting ploys.

Try this one on for size: Oprah Winfrey has tapped La Toya Jackson to star in her own reality show.

Life with La Toya will debut next year on Winfrey’s struggling OWN cable network. The network bills the show as a “candid look” inside Jackson’s life as she juggles family, friends and business.

This isn’t La Toya’s foray on reality show: She was a contestant on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice in 2011.
