After joining the cast of "The Celebrity Apprentice" season 4, La Toya Jackson is going to headline her own reality series. OWN has picked up "Life With La Toya" for a 2013 premiere. The show will follow the sister of the late Michael Jackson as she "juggles the many demands of her famous family, her life long friends, and her growing entertainment business empire."

Also lined up for 2013 are "The Customer Is Always Right" and "Neighborvention". On the former show, loyal customers will give advices to a company's top executives on how to improve the business. The other show, meanwhile, will feature "one desperate family in crisis" who "opens their doors and reaches out to their neighbors for a helping hand" in each episode.

In addition to ordering the 2013 new programs, OWN unveiled its 2012 fall line-up. It brings back "Oprah's Next Chapter", "Oprah's Lifeclass", "Super Soul Sunday" and "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" and introduces new shows, including "Iyanla, Fix My Life", which centers on accomplished author and inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant who has overcome many personal struggles. Now, she is back fixing lives and using her past to help others' futures.

The other new shows, "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" and "TV Guide Magazine's Top 25 Best Oprah Show Moments", will be reminiscences of Oprah Winfrey's successful daytime talk show. The former unlocks "The Oprah Winfrey Show" vault and takes a look back at what happened to some of the biggest headline makers on the show, while the latter counts down the most famous and memorable moments on the talk show.
