Beverly Johnson tapped for new reality show in February on the OWN
(December 1, 2011) OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced the debut of a
new series, "Beverly's Full House" featuring supermodel Beverly Johnson,
which is set to premiere in February. The docu-series follows what
happens when three generations of Johnson's family come together under
one roof --- her fabulous home in Palm Springs, California.
In "Beverly's Full House," Beverly Johnson steps out of her role as
glamorous fashion icon and opens her home to her daughter Anansa (a
plus-size model), son-in-law David (a former NFL player), and their
newborn baby Ava, in an effort to reconnect with her daughter and to
help her growing family get ahead financially during a tough economy.
Despite following in her mother's footsteps, Anansa's relationship with
her mother has always been fragile. With the arrival of her daughter Ava,
Anansa wants to heal her strained relationship with her mother and
agrees to move her family into Beverly's home.
Humorous and heartfelt, "Beverly's Full House" explores the
unpredictable dynamic between mother, daughter and son-in-law.
Throughout the season, Beverly tries with varying degrees of success to
bond with her daughter and son-in-law. Despite sometimes overstepping
her boundaries and at times having her intentions misunderstood, she
loves her family and is determined to right past wrongs. Along the way,
viewers will witness the drama, good times and bad times as Beverly's
traditional/non-traditional family comes together, bound by love, and
learns to make it all work.
"Beverly's Full House" is produced for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network by
