But there’s a catch… Jessica, 32 and pregnant with her second child, wants to screen the prospective suitors to make sure they’re good enough for Tina!

Hmm…could this be a Kardashian-like plot line where the line between reality and TV becomes impossible to see?

Jessica’s new show is a scripted comedy but it is inspired by her life so Tina’s adventures could make their way on to the small screen. Either way Jessica wants her mom to build a new life.

But don’t expect dad’s personal problems to be scripted — Joe is one of the producers! As Radar previously reported he was caught in relationships with men, ending his marriage.

“It’s her way of protecting her mom. Jessica doesn’t want to see her get hurt again and is also worried that she could get taken advantage of.

“Tina is a little unsure about dating, but Jessica is persistently telling her she needs to get out there,” the source revealed.

As previously reported, Tina is so desperate to move on from Joe that she slashed the asking price on their Encino, Calif. mansion by nearly $1 million.

First listed in October for $4.3 million, the storybook English country home is now listed on Estately for a much lower price of $3.5 million.
