I read that and I hope it's not true. I have trouble believing anyone would want to watch that show and think it would be an insult to his legacy.

I don't care about any reality shows but if that's what it takes to get more music released, so be it. We won't have to watch the show to get the music once it's out.

I'm generally sympathetic to the family, cause I realize they got big bills to pay, and they have to keep the archive and Paisley going, but... there's got to be limits...

I have mixed feelings. My kneejerk reaction was that it was awful. But then I remembered that Prince himself was in talks to do a reality show and he himself told his photographer that he wanted it to be about Paisley but he didn't want to actually be in it. In way, they are doing what he wanted if they do a reality show.

Exactly, I do not like reality shows but this could be away to generate interest in the Vault material. The show could be an on-going commercial for vault material. I also would rather see the family do things that are revenue generating on a mass scale than find themselves in a situation were they are getting killed by taxes and forced to sell off assets.

Dance parties are not going to bring in money and if the UMG deal gets completely killed they still need to find someone interested in distributing the non-WB material which could take time to do.

What I find interesting is the media who are driving a narrative that it is better that a thief like Ian make money off of Prince's music than the actual heirs.

Narrative.

Revenue should go to an engineer and some random made up company instead of his family which could use the money to continue to hold on to the masters and rights. What sort of thinking is this?

I'm confident because I read the story and it was so ridiculous. The family tried to stop the Deliverance EP because they want to release it on a reality tv show? Seriously? lol lol lol

Anyway Omarr tweeted this morning:

Omarr says not true, though we don't know if he's speaking just for himself or for the entire family.

so much for the family respecting him in death. much has been made of the secrecy of Prince's death, i'd bet everything I own that this family will tell everything whenever it's convenient to them.

Could be Omarr and Tyka are not down with this and the other 3 are. Those 3 are just too much it will not work if all are not involved

It will not work period. Does anyone think Prince's older siblings really believe someone would sign them up for a reality tv show? lol

Hopefully it's not true, the Jacksons reality show after Michael's death was the worst idea ever. It made pretty much the whole crew look like idiots. Jermaine: "Mama, he erased my tape".

I believe the older sibs are really delusional but if you look at some of the reality shows that are on I could see this getting on the air with all not some of them.

How hands on do you think they really are? Professionals do all that for them.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

They'd have to be extremely delusional to think anyone would want to do a reality show with them. But the story was so flimsy I really have a hard time believing it. Or somebody was throwing it out there as a trial balloon and that balloon was popped fast.

Nicely put.

This would be going in a completely contrary direction to what Prince did all his life, privacy wise.

I wonder if the estate has explored renting studio time and Paisley Park's soundstage for films and other musical and film projects to outside clients. Paisley Park Studios can be to Prince what Electric Ladyland is to Jimi-a place where artists can record and create to keep the creative spirit of Prince alive. That could bring in revenue that could supplement the money earned from the fan tours. As far as this purported reality show, I hope Tyka pulls rank and use her clout as the only full sibling to veto the reality show. If it does happen then it is what it is. I'm sure down the line, anybody that ever spent more than 5 minutes around Prince will find ways to commercially exploit his death. The blueprint was laid by Prince's first wife.
