See, Shannon's aunt, Jane Wiedlin, is going to be on this season of MTV's "The Surreal Life." Neither of us knew this until I was watching some other show and fast-forwarding through commercials when I suddenly stopped short and exclaimed loudly, "Is that JANE?" Upon verifying (by listening to her voice, mostly, since they didn't show her for very long), I had to go tell Shannon, who agreed that we absolutely MUST set the TiVo to record it. I'm curious to see how she interacts with the rest of the cast, and how they treat her. She's alway seemed very sweet, but also strong willed. Also, her career is still pretty active compared to many of the other cast members. It should be interesting.
We've never watched "The Surreal Life" in the past, but how can you resist when a member of your family is involved?
