began production on New Year’s Eve, a few months after the show won an Emmy. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who dated Kathy for a short period of time, will appear.

As to the show’s future, Kathy told USA TODAY, “The reality show format gets really old for obvious reasons. As long as people are laughing, that’s all I care about.”
