SUPERNANNY HELPS HER FIRST CELEBRITY FAMILY WHEN WENDY WILSON
OF WILSON/PHILLIPS REACHES OUT FOR HELP IN MANAGING HER FOUR BOYS
-- INCLUDING NEWBORN TWINS, JO'S YOUNGEST-EVER CHARGES --
ON ABC'S "SUPERNNANY"
"Wilson-Knutson Family" � Pop star Wendy Wilson and her husband, Dan Knutson, make history as the first celebrity parents to enlist Supernanny's help. Wendy, who rose to fame as part of the multi-platinum trio Wilson Phillips, is now a stay-at-home mom working on being the best mother possible after having four sons in five years. As the daughter of Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, she was raised in a household where the children had few boundaries, and is often a pushover with her rambunctious toddlers, Leo, 4 and Beau, 3. Husband Dan, a former rock singer, was raised just the opposite way, with clear-cut rules and a strict schedule. Having had twins Willem and Jesse just six weeks prior to filming, Wendy and Dan are exhausted, overextended, and realize that their current parenting style won't work. Enter Supernanny Jo Frost, who will show as much candor and tough love to this celebrity family as she does to her non-celebrity families. But can she help Wendy and Dan find the harmony within their home? Find out on "Supernanny," WEDNESDAY, JUNE 18 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD 2/20/08)
Wendy is considering touring anew with her sister, Carnie Wilson, who stops by to rehearse with her during the episode. But before the tour begins, Wendy and Dan need to find a way to manage the chaos of their family life. They aren't sure how to navigate play dates and restaurant excursions with four children in tow, for starters. Leo and Beau's bedtime "routine" stretches for hours, and the boys rarely sleep in their own beds all night, preferring Mom and Dad's. Now that the parents are feeding newborns too, the adults' sleep is interrupted all night long. In addition, Beau's potty-training skills have vanished since the birth of the twins, and he's still attached to his pacifier, something Jo thinks he needs to relinquish to the "Paci-Fairy," which she explains in full detail.
