For the first time ever, Supernanny is going to help out a celebrity family. On this week’s episode of Supernanny, Jo Frost will pay a visit to the Wilson-Knutson family. The Wilson-Knutson family consists of pop star Wendy Wilson and her husband, Dan Knutson, and their four sons.
Wendy became famous as part of the multi-platinum trio Wilson Phillips, but she is now a stay-at-home mom. Wendy is the daughter of Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, and she had few boundaries growing up. Dan Knutson is a former rock singer, but he was raised with clear-cut rules and a strict schedule.
Wendy’s sons were all born in the last five years, and she is often a pushover with her toddlers, Leo, 4 and Beau, 3. Twins Willem and Jesse were born just six weeks prior to filming.
Wendy and Dan are both exhausted and overextended. Wendy is also considering touring again with her sister, Carnie Wilson. The two actually rehearse together during the episode. Wendy and Dan want to find a way to manage the chaos of their family life before Wendy’s new tour begins. The couple is challenged with managing play dates and restaurant excursions with four children.
It often takes hours to get Leo and Beau through their bedtime routine, and even then the boys rarely sleep in their own beds all night. Wendy and Dan’s sleep is also constantly interrupted by both the older children and by needing to feed the newborns. To make matters worse, four year old Beau has regressed in his potty-training since the twins were born, and he still won’t give up his pacifier.
Supernanny airs on Wednesday, February 20 from 9 PM to 10 PM ET on ABC.
