A Wayzata businesswoman will be co-hosting a new primtime television series set to debut this month.
Kailen Rosenberg, owner of Love and Life Architects in Wayzata, and Paul Brunson (the real life "Hitch" whom the Will Smith film was made about) will co-host "Lovetown, USA" which will air on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network.
The new prime-time reality series is set to premiere Sunday, Aug. 19.
Rosenberg stresses she is not a therapist or a counselor. She instead views herself as a life architect who both helps bring married couples together who have been struggling and works with single people looking for love and life satisfaction.
Rosenberg grew up on the shores of Lake Minnetonka. She says her mother was a hippie and that she spent most of her childhood with her grandparents bounding around Lake Minnetonka’s bays and inlets.
“I always knew that when I grew up I wanted to live near Lake Minnetonka,” she said. “I love the people and the energy and the environment and the water.”
Rosenberg has been a love architect for about 17 years. Her business, Love and Life Architects, is nestled on Lake Street and can be found online here.
Based upon Oprah's belief that "in order to find love you have to be love," OWN decided to launch a first of its kind social experiment to see what would happen to a community that focused on nothing but love for 30 days. After a nationwide search, Oprah named Kingsland, GA, to be "Lovetown, USA."
Rosenberg was given the daunting task of transforming Kingsland in 30 short days, attempting to help six singles find love in their own backyard, help neighbors mend fences, local churches come together for the first time and community businesses resolve disputes.
Involving everyone from the mayor to grade school students, this social experiment examined the affects love, grace, kindness and forgiveness can have on an entire community.
