Judds and O'Neals get reality shows on Oprah's OWN network

Continuing the tradition of celebrities with slightly dulled stars getting reality shows (hello, Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna!), mother-daughter country singing duo Naomi and Wynonna Judd are getting a series on Oprah Winfrey's forthcoming OWN network. It will cover their preparations for their first music tour in 10 years.

As every good reality show needs a good scandal or catfight, we're interested to see what might arise from these two: Perhaps Naomi's daughter Ashley Judd, Wynonna's half-sister, will stop by and we'll see some sibling rivalry?

Or maybe we'll have a better chance at scandal with the other OWN reality show announced Monday: That of father and daughter Ryan and Tatum O'Neal. Sure, there was the bit about him hitting on his daughter at Farrah Fawcett's funeral, but that might be the tip of the iceberg. Tatum's got a whole autobiography of other issues to rehash in front of the cameras.

Both shows will debut during the OWN Network's Jan. 1-2 launch weekend.

Will you watch either show? And are there any other stars who need reality shows from Oprah?
