UBBLY blonde Brynne Edel­sten has promised her new fly-on-the-wall re­al­ity show Brynne: My Be­daz­zled Life will be free of ar­ti­fi­cial colour­ing and flavour­ing.

The Chan­nel 7 se­ries, about her day-to-day life, has been 12 months in the mak­ing and she says ev­ery­thing cap­tured on film is ex­actly what would have oc­curred in her life even if a cam­era had not been look­ing over her shoul­der.

Edel­sten says that un­like other re­al­ity shows such as the long-run­ning pay-TV se­ries Keep­ing Up With The Kar­dashi­ans, there is noth­ing con­trived for the cam­era.

She ad­mits she is a lit­tle ap­pre­hen­sive about how she will be por­trayed and slightly re­grets not hav­ing an edit­ing clause in her con­tract to over­ride any scenes she may not ap­prove of.

‘‘There’s a big dif­fer­ence be­tween the Kar­dashi­ans and mine,’’ she says. ‘‘They have set-ups, where there are lots of cam­eras, and this is a onecam­era, one-per­son show.

‘‘I am not good at read­ing scripts and mak­ing things up, I’m good at be­ing me, when I am most com­fort­able and nat­u­ral.’’

Edel­sten was born in Ok­la­homa and moved to Ari­zona when she was an in­fant.

By the time the fit­ness in­struc­tor hit her 20s she ven­tured to Los Angeles where she met colourful en­tre­pre­neur and for­mer pris­oner Dr Geoffrey Edel­sten, 40 years her se­nior, through a mu­tual friend at the Bev­erly Wil­shire Ho­tel in 2008.

Some six months later they had their first date in Las Ve­gas and in 2009 they were mar­ried at Mel­bourne’s Crown Casino, where they hired Se­in­feld star Ja­son Alexan­der and Nanny star Fran Drescher as MCs.
