Famous Conjoined Twins Getting Their Own Reality Show


"throw it out there and let it go."

Abigail and Brittany Hensel are conjoined twins who have been in the media spotlight for years.

Abby controls the left side and while Brittany controls the right side. When they were younger, it may have been just that simple -- figuring out how to do everyday things in cooperation with each other while not feeling the other side of their body -- but as they age differing personalities and desires will be affecting monumental life decisions that have to be made together. Things like getting a job and getting married.

With such a fascination on how issues like this will be handled, the 22-year-olds decided to put it all out in the open with a reality TV show on TLC. The show will cover the dicephatic parapagus twins and how they handle everyday life activities, like driving and riding a bike, as well as the trickier situations.

A friend in the promo clip says she doesn't know how the girls handle the constant stares they receive everyday. To this, the girls respond saying they are going to "throw it out there and let it go."

Check out the show's preview:

With their condition, the girls technically share a body, but they have their own sets of lungs, hearts and spines. They only have one set of genitals, which you can imagine could pose a challenge later down the road. The Huffington Post reported the girls saying they want to become moms someday but haven't quite figured out how they will work out that situation yet.

"Abby and Brittany" airs August 28 at 10 p.m. EST.
