Nick Carter: ‘New reality show will be nothing like House of Carters train wreck’

Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter has no qualms about returning to reality TV after fans watched him spiral out of control on his family show House Of Carters – because he likes the idea of viewers seeing the real Nick now he’s drug-free. The pop star accepts he was a mess when he made House of Carters seven years ago, but now he’s in a much better space with his fiancee Lauren Kitt, and he can’t wait to show the world how much he has changed on his upcoming, as-yet-untitled series.
Carter tells ABC News, “That was a train wreck show. That’s what it was. There was no thought behind it. Just put a bunch of people in a house that have issues and ‘let ’em explode’.
“The (new) show is based on my future marriage with my fiancee, and us basically making it – starting over again, creating a new and better life. That’s what our relationship has been based off of – helping each other evolve. I think it can be very inspirational to the world out there.
“I thought about it, and who I am now, versus the person I was before, and I’m completely different. I’m almost not afraid – actually, I’m not afraid to show the world who I am now. I’m not afraid to show that I am weak at times, but I am making it. It’s not easy, and it’s a process, but it’ll be interesting to show the world. It’s gonna be cool.”
