Move over Kardashians, there’s a new reality TV family in town!
It’s been some time since we last saw Shayne Lamas, winner of The Bachelor: London Calling who was previously engaged to Matt Grant. She may not have gotten the happy ending she had hoped for (the couple broke up last year amidst a scandal that Grant allegedly wanted to marry Lamas for a green card and a rumor that Shayne had cheated on him), but that doesn’t mean she’ll be mourning her broken heart all year long. Actually, it already looks like she’s recovered now that she’s starring in her own reality series on the E! network.
Leave it to Lamas, the new series that follows the former Bachelor star and the rest of her family as they live their Hollywood lifestyles, premieres Sunday, October 11 at 10:30pm ET/PT —immediately after The Girls Next Door‘s sixth season premiere, which is the first time the show won’t feature Hugh Hefner’s former girlfriends Holly Madison, Bridget Marquardt and Kendra Wilkinson as regular cast members.
And since this is one of those family-centered docu-dramas, expect to see Shayne’s father Lorenzo Lamas, who who previously served as a judge on ABC’s short-lived 2003 Are You Hot? reality series and also competed on Gone Country‘s second season last summer on CMT, ex-wife Michele Smith, Shayne’s brother A.J. and her sister Dakota.
Shayne’s new series, which the network ordered in April under the working title The Lamas Family, is being produced by The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss, who began developing the series when he inked an exclusive deal with Warner Bros. Television and its Warner Horizon TV division in December.
Aside from The Bachelor, Shayne is also credited for appearances on General Hospital, Air America, Twentyfourseven, The 13th Alley, and In the Pines.
