>• Jenny and Bryan Masche and their 2-year-olds star on WE's reality show Raising Sextuplets, premiering June 11.
WHY THEY'RE DOING A SHOW "We were like, 'We won't be able to document this journey [ourselves] and do it justice,'" says Jenny, 34. "There was a little compensation. And they only film us five to six days out of the month." Adds Bryan, 31: "We have professional home movies and we're involved in them. It's the coolest thing."
HOW THEY'VE DEALT WITH THE JON & KATE CONTRO "We're so sad for them, but it's been good for us to see so that we can set ground rules," Jenny says. "We're not allowed to be apart for more than three days." Adds Bryan: "Our families help. There are a lot of people to put us in check if we start getting out of hand!"
