OWN to Premiere LIFE WITH LA TOYA, 6/7
"Life with La Toya," featuring the outrageous WORLD of pop culture icon La Toya Jackson, returns for its summer premiere with two back-to-back episodes Saturday, June 7 at 10 and 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. As the most lovable and unpredictable member of the famous Jackson dynasty, La Toya has big changes in store.
La Toya is taking charge of her life and finds that life on top also comes with its challenges. She tackles some long-harbored issues in therapy, giving her a newfound confidence, which presents an issue for her business partner and constant companion, Jeffré, who's not used to sharing her with anyone.
Meanwhile, showbiz beckons, and La Toya hits the Big Apple to star in a campy stage musical. New music is also on the horizon, but La Toya's biggest performance of all could be as a bride-to-be, when a wedding proposal turns her WORLD upside down. Longtime friend Brenda Richie and outspoken gal-pal Tresa Harrington are along for the ride with wine glasses in hand. High-speed yachts, red carpets, big diamonds and even bigger drama abound alongside tears, cheers and emotional entanglements that only come with life lived as a Jackson.
