Ashley Tisdale shared the news on her Instagram Story, pointing out that Brutally Honest will follow a couple and the way their life changes after they welcome their kids. She confirmed the story had something to do with her own experience in parenting and the relationship she has with her husband, Christopher French.

According to the actress, it felt scary that the show was based on her and her husband’s relationship and having a baby, how it all changed, and the difficult conversations along the way. She shared that while it made her more vulnerable, it was also really funny, so it was worth sharing. She also added that it was real life that was going to be inside the movie.

Tisdale Is Producing Brutally Honest

Ashley Tisdale explained the creative process behind the series, and apparently, it originated in her decision to get away from Hollywood for a while. The actress was often asked when she would return to acting, and what her dream role was, so she took a step back and managed to get inspired and creative. So, given how her daughter and her relationship inspired a big part of her life, she drew on it to create the idea for the new show.

Ashley Tisdale and Christopher French married in 2014 and welcomed their first child in March 2021. The actress shared that she was very excited when her daughter came into her life because she had always wanted a girl. Apparently, her husband was very scared, and it showed in the pictures. Brutally Honest is now in its early development stages, and enthusiasts will have to wait a while before learning the release date.
