Project Runway is one of the toughest competitions on TV -- but Heidi Klum's new reality show is kid's stuff! The supermodel has signed on to host a new Lifetime series, tentatively called Seriously Funny Kids. The unscripted show will feature Klum, 37, talking to -- yes -- some seriously funny kids. The Project Runway host says that this new project was inspired by her own family.
"I have four children under the age of six, and to be honest, sometimes I enjoy them more than adults," Klum tells the press. "They’re uncensored, unpredictable and absolutely hilarious."
Klum's series, which will premiere in 2011, will have some competition: TLC is also launching a new show about the funny things kids say. The TLC show will be produced by Ryan Seacrest and hosted by Brad Garrett, Everybody Loves Raymond's cranky-yet-lovable brother. Both shows follow in the footsteps of Kids Say the Darndest Things, the vintage Art Linkletter TV segment revived by Bill Cosby in 1998.
Though Klum hasn't worked with kids on camera before, she obviously adores them: she has two daughters and two sons with husband Seal, ages six, five, three, and one. If Project Runway, which Klum also produces, was inspired by her professional life, then Seriously Funny Kids should show us the more personal side of Heidi. We look forward to watching kids burst into giggles when she teaches them German words. Just one thing: is it too much to ask for a cameo appearance from Tim Gunn? Kids need to learn how to "make it work," too!
