Carnie Wilson was brought up in a musical family by her father, Brian Wilson, the driving force behind the group The Beach Boys, and mother, Marilyn Rovell, who was also a singer. Under the influence of her musical surrounding, Carnie started showing singing skills very early. As a teenager, her career began in 1989, when she started the music group Wilson Philips, together with her friend Chynna Phillips and her sister Wendy. They managed to release two albums, before disbanding in 1993, selling around 12 million album copies in total, which greatly increased Carnie’s net worth. Afterwards, she and her sister continued making music, and released the Christmas album “Hey Santa!” in 1993, and then collaborated with their father and released the album “The Wilsons” (1997), but it failed to chart. Anyway, the group Wilson Phillips reunited in 2004, and since then, they have released three more albums, “California” (2004), “Christmas In Harmony” (2010), and “Dedicated” (2012).

1"I'm proof that surgery is not a magic potion. There are many ways to sabotage it. I didn't feel like myself, and I turned to alcohol because I couldn't turn to food anymore. Alcohol numbed me out for a while, then it got scary. I needed to get into recovery. It was a very private struggle, Rob (her husband) was pretty scared for me. I was always the one who was strong and in charge, and I let go. I've been clean and sober for almost two years. I stopped, I got healthy, and I got pregnant." (People, May 8, 2006)
2"Was I a perfect gastric-bypass patient? Yes. Was I the perfect gastric-bypass pregnant woman? No. I made a decision to enjoy my pregnancy....So sue me! But I've learned a lesson: Next time I've got to watch the carbs." (People, May 8, 2006)
3"...The B. F. Goodrich ad ran during the Rose Bowl. It was the first income I ever made, and my mom put it away for me. It was about $15,000 or $30,000. She said, 'You'll need this one day.' It's long gone, let me tell you!" (from a 1996 interview)
4"My mother gave me a spiritual perspective. She felt her life was miraculous. She came from a poor background, one pair of shoes, from a loving Jewish family. She was fourteen when she met my dad. She married him at sixteen, and she had me at twenty. She grew up very fast. She taught me about karma: If you do something nice for someone, it'll come back to you. It's the most powerful thing on Earth. That's how I live my life." (from a 1996 interview)
