When three grandmas—sisters Mary, Josie and Teresa—got together for lunch and watched the Kim Kardashian and Ray-J sex tape, little did they know it would lead to their very own reality show on Oprah’s OWN Network.
The sisters became a YouTube sensation back in April, when their reaction to the Kardashian sex tape went viral, racking up over 3 million views to date. They’ve also racked up the views reacting to 50 Shades of Grey, listening to Dubstep, and looking up “Totes McGotes” on Urban Dictionary. Check out the Kim Kardashian reaction video below (note: may be NSFW, though that’s probably pretty obvious).
YouTube’s 3 Golden Sisters have served as an endless source of entertainment for online video enthusiasts, and now they will serve as an endless source of entertainment for OWN viewers as well—at least for the one-hour special they’ve been signed for, billed as Golden Sisters.
Kelly Anderson of ReelScreen reports that the special will be divided into two half-our episodes. “The two half-hour episodes star Mary Bartnicki, who is in her eighties, and her younger twin sisters Josie and Teresa.” It will debut on December 16 at 10 p.m. EST/PST and will feature real-life scenarios, including one sister setting up an online dating profile and the sisters preparing for the apocalypse.
The following video, uploaded yesterday to the Oprah Winfrey Network YouTube page, introduces the three sisters, and their new show. Check it out and let us know what you think. Will you be watching Golden Sisters when it premieres on OWN next month?
