You probably thought that headline was one of my many attempts to be cute, but it’s true, Frank Stallone is getting a reality show.

…he’s thrilled to be finally stepping out of his famous sibling’s shadow.  The 58-year-old is a successful musician, with Grammy and Golden Globe nominations for his song for 1983 movie Staying Alive – but he has struggled to keep up with Oscar winner Sylvester. In the as-yet-untitled show, Frank will show off his talents and share his life, and relationships with his brother and psychic mother Jackie.

Oh yeah, definitely don’t gloss over the part about the mom.  From Frank’s Wiki page:

…the son of Jacqueline “Jackie” (née Labofish), an astrologer, former dancer, and promoter of women’s wrestling, and Frank Stallone, Sr., a hairdresser.

Awesome.  I want business cards that say “Promoter of women’s wrestling.”

[Frank] is relishing the opportunity to finally make his name, telling the National Enquirer, “For 32 years I have been Rocky-ed to death. Now I’m trying to change the public’s perception of me.

“I’m extremely proud that Sly created Rocky, but I got really tired of that. I was signed to RCA records before Rocky came along and I’m angry that people think I’m riding on my brother’s coat tails.  I want the recognition I deserve.”  [via WENN - so take this whole story with a grain of salt]

If I had to choose a favorite Frank Stallone album (and it’s hard, it’s like trying to choose a favorite child), I’d have to go with 2002′s Stallone on Stallone – By Request.  It’s hard to choose a favorite among so many great tracks, but “Love is Like a Light” is one of the best, most powerful songs ever written about self-preservation, dignity. Its universal message crosses all boundaries and instills one with the hope that it’s not too late to better ourselves.  …Whoa, what happened, I blacked out for a second there.  Anyway, if Frank Stallone is on a show by law I don’t think they can call it a reality show.
