'Jen's a really private person, so everyone will want to know the real her. Viewers would kill to see how she goes about her day-to-day life, what she really eats and get an insight into her love life,' quoted a source as saying.


The Bounty Hunter star might actually be interested in the concept but "only on her own terms" according to the source.
