Nelly Reality TV Show

Published: 2005-09-22
If you've just been dying to know what St. Louis rapper Nelly eats for breakfast or what he does in his spare time, never fear. Nelly is just the latest Hollywood native to sign on to let his whole life hang out in a new reality TV show.

Produced by A. Smith & Co. Productions, which has also done Fox TV's The Swan, the show is said to be a day-in-the-life of the rap star.

Besides showing off his posse and his crib, the rapper wants to give some publicity to some of his charitable organizations. According to its website, 4 Sho 4 Kids, for example, is "dedicated to improving the quality of life for children born with developmental disabilities with emphasis on Down syndrome and children born addicted to drugs," in the St. Louis area, where Nelly grew up. He's also involved in Jes Us 4 Jackie, named for his sister Jackie, who recently passed away from leukemia.

Most famous for sporting a band aid on his cheek and for his 2002 summer hit "Hot in Here," Nelly's new show will start early in 2006.
