Lil’ Kim is being filmed for a reality show before going to prison

USA TODAY asks, “Who will be the next big reality star?” Specifically, the paper wonders which celebrity will be next to get a boost after appearing on their own reality show.

The answer may be Lil’ Kim, who is taping her own reality series before heading to prison for a year. (She starts serving her sentence Monday.) Lil’ Kim Goes to the Big House “will feature Kim as she prepares for jail, all the while hyping her forthcoming album, ‘The Naked Truth,’ remodeling her home, and co-hosting a party with Marc Jacobs during New York Fashion Week,” Variety reports.

“At least five networks have expressed interest in acquiring the finished product”, Variety says, although it doesn’t reveal which networks.
