The special, which airs Jan. 10, features a revealing interview with the Britian's Got Talent contestant as she talks about her somewhat tumultuous life after finishing in second place on the show, according to Diane Robina, executive vice president of programming and marketing for TV Guide Network
The network also announced it has teamed with Jersey Shore producers SallAnn Salsano and 495 Productions to develop a new reality-docu soap based on a Hollywood nail salon.
