Troubled singer Bobby Brown has his children to thank for his new reality TV show, as they came up with the idea during one of his stints in prison.

The MY PREROGATIVE star's kids - LANDON, 18, LA PRINCIA, 16, BOBBY JR, 14, and BOBBY KRISTINA, 12 - encouraged their wayward father to create BEING BOBBY BROWN when they saw fellow rap star Flavor Flav had appeared on reality programmes THE SURREAL LIFE and STRANGE LOVE.

Brown recalls, "I was in jail, and they were like 'Dad, your friend FLAVOR FLAV has a reality show. When you get out, you should do a reality show.'"
