Oprah Winfrey‘s ‘OWN‘ has seen quite a turnaround in ratings since its troubled debut.  Rocking ratings with hit series like ‘Oprah’s Master Class’, ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’, and ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’, O is looking to continue her good streak by introducing new reality segments – namely ‘Life With LaToya’.

Yes, indeed we are talking about LaToya Jackson.  The Jackson-family black sheep has seen her career overcast by a number of misfortunes including poor album sales, poor performances, and poor public reception.  Jackson is looking to change that however by taking control (no pun intended) and center stage – for once not at the expense of a sibling.

Set to debut Saturday, April 13th at 10:30 pm ET on OWN, get into its trailer above and tell us your thoughts?
