Country music songstress Kellie Pickler is no stranger to reality shows as she herself was a product of reality shows American Idol and a winner in Dancing With The Stars. So when she was offered a reality show of her own, she already had a pretty good idea of how she wants it to be.
“We want to keep it light and positive,” Pickler said during an interview with The Associated Press at the set of her new reality show I Love Kellie Pickler. “There’s enough darkness out in the world. And there’s enough negativity on television.”

The 13-episode docu-series, premiering at 10 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, is produced by Ryan Seacrest and will revolve mainly on her marriage to songwriter-producer Kyle Jacobs.
Pickler wants to welcome her fans to their Nashville home but without the drama people are used to seeing in shows like the Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Fans will get to feel her easygoing and light personality in the series.
Even though they are doing a reality show, the country singer admitted she knew she hadsto set boundaries. “You definitely have to set boundaries from the start with anything you do,” she said of I Love Kellie Pickler. “And keep things sacred for you and your marriage.”
The docu-series follows the everyday life of the couple, who has been married for five years now. “People know what we do in front of the curtain,” the American Idol alum said. “They know what we do onstage or what he does in the studio. This is about who we are when we clock out.” What is Pickler like behind the cameras?
The country singer shares her talent and time to thousands of brothers and sisters in the army when she is not performing onstage. In fact, she has entertained 38,000 active troop members on nine overseas tours and more than a hundred events with the USO.
Pickler said that sharing her time is not enough to show her gratitude toward these soldiers who serve and protect the country.
