Cameras are already following around the wife and daughters of Clint Eastwood for a new reality show, according to TMZ.
The project is being produced by Bunim Murray and E!, the same entities behind “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and its many spin-offs.
The focus of the Eastwood show will be the 81-year-old filmmaker’s wife Dina, a 46-year-old Northern California anchorwoman, and Eastwood daughters Morgan, 15, and Francesca, 18.
The “Dirty Harry” star will apparently wander into shots on occasion, much as Hugh Hefner did on E!’s “The Girls Next Door.”
any other stars you’d like to see on these?
I would like to see Larry King and his wife and kids.
But…but…Clint Eastwood is one of ours…
Say it ain’t so, Nameless Gunman!
Odds that this decision has more to do with either daughters or the wife’s ambitions?
yeah i thought clint had more class. i’d like to see one on keith richards and fam but i suspect it’s not gonna happen
46 year old wife? Sheesh. I’ve seen some big gaps in my time, but that one might take the cake (aside from Hugh Hefner). I’m not saying it’s wrong or anything, but it does give me gross thoughts.
I guess they don’t look too awkward together
really they dont look that far apart in ages.
“46 year old wife? Sheesh.”
Hardly the most shocking thing in the history of Eastwood’s love life.
You mean Sondra Locke, Matt?
I was thinking of the numerous illegitimate children he’s fathered.
this might just boost his box office if it catches on.
he is starring in a film with Amy Adams next and then directing a film with Beyonce, gramps needs a hit
But, a trash reality show? An exhibitionist’s last gasp at D list celebrity status? That’s like screaming out "I WANT TO BE ON TV, and I don’t care how. How could somebody with the same genes as Clint Eastwood consent to that?
I don’t think big age gaps in romances are a big deal. Those kind of romances, if anything, are more honest about their mutual expectations.
show starts in May (from ew.com)
Looks like the Eastwoods are the next celebrity family to land their own reality show: E! announced today that the new series, Mrs. Eastwood & Company will debut in May.
But rather than a deeper look into the life of esteemed actor and director Clint Eastwood, the series will focus on his wife Dina, their teenage daughters Francesca and Morgan, and ‘Overtone’: the all-male, six member South African vocal group that Dina manages (hence the “Company.”)
“Nothing is more important to me than family – no matter how you define that,” Dina Eastwood said in a statement. “People might be surprised
Didn’t think Eastwood would debase himself in that kind of show, even though the focus would be more on his wife than himself.
Dina Ruiz is no pushover. She had a very successful career as a newswoman at KSBW and I imagine this is not a question of Clint “allowing this to happen” but instead supporting his wife in her own ventures. I would compare her to someone like Maria Shriver although that didn’t work out too well. haha.
Yeah, simply because he’s associated by marriage to this event doesn’t mean that he’s “debasing” himself, that’s pretty harsh. Santino’s right, this is more a venture of his wife – is Clint supposed to refuse interacting with his wife and children the entire time the show is going on? I’m certainly not a fan of the ‘reality’ bullshit that’s plagued TV for … however long it’s been (seems like a lifetime), but hell, if my wife wanted to pursue it while I was filming Mystic River 3 or whatever it is, then that’d be alright, heh. Use the system and the sheep-like public I suppose.
If we want to talk about Clint debasing himself, we’d be better off discussing the films he’s directed over the past ten years.
I can’t think of a more effective way of taking a big steaming dump on Sergio Leone and Don Siegel than making a film like The Changeling.
Jeez, I’d much rather watch late Eastwood than Duck, You Sucker or Jinxed!
“Jeez, I’d much rather watch late Eastwood than Duck, You Sucker”
^ Yeah, what’s up with that crazy comment?
Duck, You Sucker is not a good film. Even if one is gracious enough to grant that the self-parody is intentional.
It’s one of the better Leone films, if not his best. The self-parody is more My Name is Nobody. Anyway, I’ve said it before but I generally like recent Eastwood films when they are unintended comedies. His self-seriousness is a bit stifling. Anyways, I’d rather watch his E reality show than his A Star is Born remake.
Yeah, I know people have been trying to renovate the perception of that film for a number of years now, but you have to take an uber-auteurist tack to get in the slightest traction there. Even Leone has said he was bored with Westerns by the time that he made it. And he seems to have made every effort to avoid directing it himself (he tried to get Bogdanovich to do it, he tried to get Peckinpah to do it, he even tried to get Giancarlo Santi to do it, and only then did he undertake it himself).
But from what better position to push the tendencies of the spaghetti western to their ultimate end point than one of creative exhaustion? I like how he apparently insisted “Duck, you sucker!” was actually common American slang.
Maybe . . . but to me that end point is not a bang but a whimper. Here the effect of the stylistic exaggeration is not operatic, but buffoonery.
(and I’m waiting to Den to weigh in defense of Jinxed!)
no defense of Jinxed, a poor Bette Midler vehicle at a time when she could do no wrong.
The problem with Eastwood is the boredom factor. He makes servicable pics about dull subjects (did anyone think a bio on Hoover was gonna make money). This reality show might encourage him to hip it up a bit, Hef got a ressurgence from Girls Next Door
trailer for this show on ew.com
This is a highly dramatic reality show tho Clint is certainly an ocean of calm thru it all (how does he put up with that flighty wife)
Clint’s daughter with Fisher is hot and the show seems to be an attempt to market a South African band that she is putting up.
