Former Full House star Jodie Sweetin, who gave birth to a baby girl earlier this year, has another production in the works: a reality-TV show.
“We’re going to start shooting in a couple months,” Sweetin, 26, told PEOPLE Thursday at the Maxim Extreme Sports Party in Los Angeles. “We are in talks with a couple of networks right now. We have one picked out, but nothing is signed yet.”
What made her and husband Cody Herpin decide to make the jump into the world of reality TV? “We actually got approached about doing it by multiple ,” she says. “It was one of those things where we were like, ‘Wow. Let’s totally do it.’ I think it’s sort of a fun way to show the other side of celebrity and a sort of semi-normal life."
And the pair isn't put off by the bad relationship track record other reality-TV couples (Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler, Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro) have faced. In fact, Sweetin says she and Herpin are “hoping to break the reality show curse.”
As for the name of the show, Sweetin's lips are sealed--for now. She says, "Before you sign contracts, you can’t say anything." --Vanessa Diaz
