Renowned Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone is embarking on a new venture: his very own reality TV show, featuring his family as the main cast. Joining the ranks of other celebrity families like the Osbournes and Kardashians, Stallone, along with his wife Jennifer and their three daughters – Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet – allows cameras to capture their daily lives in this unscripted series.
Premiering on Paramount+ this week, “The Family Stallone” offers glimpses of Stallone on the set of his television series “Tulsa King,” as well as intimate moments shared at home with his family. The show encompasses both joyous celebrations and more personal family scenes, providing viewers with a comprehensive look into the life of the beloved actor and his loved ones.
“So what you see here is what you get. This is what we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, which is share our life a little bit because it’s entertaining,” Stallone told Reuters in a joint interview with Jennifer and their daughters.
“It also has a message that no matter what you have, we may have all the trappings of wealth and we’re very fortunate, we still have the same issues and the same wants and the same needs and the same requirements for love and so it’s there for everyone to see.”
The family said the idea for the show stemmed from Sistine and Sophia’s podcast “Unwaxed”.
“We’ve featured our whole family on it and everyone was so shocked that they were just so funny and relatable and gave great business advice,” Sistine said. “I think people just kept wanting to see more and more.”
Asked about comparisons to hit show “The Kardashians”, Stallone said: “I think the Kardashians were brilliant in what they did and very original, we’re taking a different tack. But the main thing is you don’t try to copy someone. That’s who they are, we are who we are and that’s what I think gives the audience a variety.”
