"I try to eat organically and don't use paper plates because it's very wasteful and I recycle every day," says Chynna Phillips, who joins Carnie and Wendy Wilson for the TV Guide Network reality series "Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On," premiering April 8. The trio, whose 1990 self-titled album sold more than 10 million copies worldwide on the strength of hits like "Hold On" and "Release Me," just released a tribute album to their parents' legendary groups The Beach Boys and The Mamas & The Papas, including songs like "California Dreaming," "Good Vibrations," "God Only Knows," and "Monday, Monday" and felt that a TV show was the perfect way to promote it.
"We have so many different mediums right now and you can't just have a song on the radio and a music video. You've got to use other outlets," Phillips points out. "We are really excited to have this opportunity to have our own show and reach so many people every single week. It's going to be so tremendous for us to have that outlet," even if having the cameras around wasn't always ideal, especially when one of the kids was crying — there are nine children among the three women, several of whom exhibit musical talent, but their inclusion in the eight-episode series will be limited.
As mothers, the Wilson Phillips women structure their concert schedule around maximizing home time so they do a lot of one-off dates. "It's hard to get out on the road for more than a week's stretch," notes Phillips, "but we will be supporting any record we do with a tour of some sort. We look forward to doing an originals record very soon."
