E! EXPLORES THE DYNAMICS AND DRAMA OF MUSIC STARS ROMEO MILLER AND SEAN KINGSTON AND THEIR FAMILIES IN THE NEW SPECIAL "FAME IN THE FAMILY" PREMIERING SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17 AT 10:30PM ET/PT
LOS ANGELES, February 14, 2013 - E! is focusing the spotlight on two pop superstars and their unique family relationships in a new special that goes inside the home lives of actor/rapper Romeo Miller and Jamaican/American singing star Sean Kingston, and with the unparalleled celebrity access for which the network is known, viewers will have a front-row seat for all the action. Romeo and Sean are respected and adored by millions of fans but when they walk through their kitchen door each night, they enter a whole other world where their strong-willed, single moms run the show. Their siblings are also anything but ordinary and where there are so many talented and passionate people under one roof, there is bound to be drama ... as well as laughter, tears, and plenty of surprises. Find out what family life is like for Romeo and Sean and how they manage to find normalcy in a world of red carpets, high stakes performances and swarms of fans. Blood really is thicker than water when "Fame In The Family" premieres Sunday, February 17 at 10:30pm ET/PT, only on E!
At 23 years old, Romeo may not be "Lil'" anymore, but he will always be mom Sonya's little boy. Separated from husband, Sonya put her own rap career on hold to raise her brood of seven children, of which Romeo is the oldest. And while she may have left her "Sonya C" gangster rapper persona behind, she is a fiercely protective mother who is grooming her other children for stardom. Even though Romeo's career is going strong, he remains an integral part of the family, helping his mom with chores and even picking up his siblings after school. With so much going on and so much ambition under one roof, there is never a dull moment in the Miller household. Between Romeo's film premieres, his oldest sister's first recording demo, contract negotiations and getting meals on the table, it's no wonder supermom Sonya has precious little time to herself.
With a new album set to drop soon, Sean Kingston's career is on fire. He's already had three top-ten hits, and he counts Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Chris Brown as his best friends. Yet, with all the fame and celebrity laid at his feet, he still has to report to mom Janice Turner for his allowance. Living with her famous son in the lush Hollywood Hills, this over-the-top mother of three is everything to Sean. She works closely with his management team, has a sizable stake in Sean's record company, and is not shy about asserting herself about her baby boy's personal life. Sean and Janice are definitely not your typical mother-son team, that's for sure. Sean's adult sister and brother are big influences as well, with brother Kurt serving as president of Sean's record label and sister Kanema a self-described sexy vixen who likes to live life large.
Their families are probably nothing like ours, but it sure is fun to watch the drama and excitement of "family life in the fast lane" unfold when "Fame In The Family" premieres Sunday, February 17 at 10:30pm ET/PT, only on E!
"Fame in the Family" is produced by GRB Entertainment. Gary R. Benz, Michael Branton and Roy Orecchio serve as Executive Producers.
