Legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood's family-- wife Dina, and daughters Morgan and Francesca-- are said to be shooting a reality show for the E! network, according to TMZ.

Dina Eastwood-- who is of African-American, Japanese, Irish, English, and German descent-- married Clint in 1996.  They share a child in Morgan; Francesca is Clint's child from a previous relationship.

Sources connected to the production tell TMZ ... the show will explore what it's like to live in a family of "Hollywood royalty."  It will focus on the relationship between Clint's wife Dina Eastwood, their daughter Morgan and Clint's 18-year-old daughter Francesca ... an aspiring actress.

The show is being produced by reality powerhouse Bunim/Murray -- the same people who produce all of the Kardashian reality shows ... along with "The Real World" and "Bad Girls Club."

We’re told 81-year-old Clint has agreed to make a couple of cameos -- but will not be a main character on the show. [TMZ]

    One word: TACKY. Now off to find Spike Lee's comments because I haven't heard about them - and maybe that shows how inconsequential they were.

    I never implied that having a black wife exonerates him of anything; you made the unfounded assumption. I brought up the Eastwood/Lee scuffle because it would seem the only time to examine it, unless you know of a film with black leads that Clint is purportedly directing. Lee has gotten it right on a couple of issues, but not always. Whether Spike (and the media ) overreacted is debatable, being that there were statements he made were false and incendiary. Filmmakers are notorious for their flameouts on each other, including an epic one between Kevin Smith & Tim Burton. However, that doesn't mean a new project like this reality show makes the discussion go away.

    Yeah, I never understood why black people jumped on Clint for being a racist. Stop listening to Spike Lee...he's just a director, not Moses!

    This post doesn't mention anything about Clint Eastwood being racist or not. You did. Nor did it mention Spike Lee and the beef between the both of them. And no, I wasn't rubber stamping Spike Lee back then. I actually admire and respect the talent of both directors but that doesn't mean they aren't subjected, like everyone, else to being ignorant from time to time. I actually thought the whole thing between the both of them was kinda childish. That said, I'm just not sure that Clint Eastwood's face appearing on Shadow and Act and having a black/mixed wife exonerates him of anything. I'm also not so sure that Spike Lee didn't over-react. And most importantly the media made it into something bigger than it probably actually was the same way they made a big deal out of Spike's comments about Tyler Perry.

    So you have proof that he is one? Making a film like Flags of Our Fathers with no flag-carrying black soldiers does not a racist make. That is what I'm referring to; this post just helps get my point across. Were you one of the folks rubber stamping Lee's meglomaniac foolishness back then?

  • artbizzy | December 16, 2011 10:37 AM

    What?! Because his wife is black, that means he can't be racist or say racist things? Not so...that's like someone saying that Spike Lee isn't sexist because he's married to a woman. C'mon...smh about this reality show, however. wtf is it with these things?
