Kevin Jonas and His Wife Have New Reality Show
This summer, E! will premier a show looking at Kevin and Danielle Jonas. Kevin, a member of the Grammy-nominated and multi-chart topping group the Jonas Brothers, met the then Danielle Deleasa while on a family vacation in the Bahamas. Dani, dubbed by E! as a "sweet, stylish and down-to-earth girl from New Jersey," married Kevin in 2009.
According to the network, the couple quickly entered a whole new world, balancing marriage, worldwide fame and coming of age. Together, they are working to manage the colliding points of view between Dani's outspoken Italian family and the Hollywood life of the Jonas clan, including Kevin's equally successful brothers Joe and Nick. After two years of marriage, Kevin and Dani are finally ready to settle down in their New Jersey home and establish a happy suburban life. However, with the Jonas Brothers heading back to the studio to record new music, finding the right mix of "normal" and superstardom isn't easy. "Married to Jonas" premieres August 19th at 10pm ET/PT only on E!
"Danielle is living a true Cinderella story after marrying into pop royalty, partnering in Kevin's larger-than-life career and becoming a 'Jonas,' a name synonymous with hit music and a worldwide fan base," said Lisa Berger, President, Entertainment Programming for E! "The series presents a unique look at a young couple and their families from two entirely different worlds, one small town and one dealing with international fame, coming together as one and starting a whole new life together."
"I vividly recall believing from the very first time that I met them that the Jonas Brothers would, without a doubt, become a worldwide cultural sensation. Given their tremendous musical talents, kindness, humor and good looks, their eventual stardom wasn't a surprise to anyone. When we learned that Dani married Kevin, our production team became curious about what life would be like for a young bride entering the excitement, and sometimes chaos, of a pop star's life," said Executive Producer Ryan Seacrest. "Looking through the lens of young love, the show will examine the ups and downs of Dani and Kevin's marriage, against the backdrop of their contrasting family cultures, traditions and individual careers."
More from E!:
Family is a huge part of Kevin and Dani's world, and their parents and siblings are constant figures in their life together. For Dani, marrying into music royalty meant officially becoming a Jonas, joining brother-in-laws Joe, Nick, youngest brother Frankie, father Kevin Sr., who manages the band, and mom Denise, the loving matriarch of the Jonas empire. Kevin, on the other hand, married into a loud and loving Italian family led by Danielle's over-protective father Bucky, her soft-spoken mother Angela, her eldest sister and best friend Dina, her teenaged sister Katie, and her brother Mikey, an aspiring singer-songwriter who is working with his megastar brother-in-law to develop his career.
Kevin Jonas' career took flight at the early age of 16 when the Jonas Brothers signed their first record deal in 2005. The actor/musician/director tackles vocals, plus guitar, mandolin and piano for the trio. The Jonas Brothers' have debuted two #1 albums on the Billboard Top 200 charts. Overall, the Jonas Brothers have sold 20 million units around the world and counting. Dani grew up in Parsippany, New Jersey and lived the life of a typical teenager: ice skating, cheerleading and playing softball. In addition to her husband, the loves of her life include two Teacup Yorkies named Riley and Macy.
