Thanks to my friend Kevin Wilkinson who just sent me these two stories. I never thought I would ever see Clint being involved in such a show, but after consideration, I can't help thinking what a fascinating insight this may prove to be...
Anyway, here are the 2 reports:

The makers intend to focus on the daily life of the 81-year-old actor and director's wife Dina Eastwood, a former news anchor and actor, their 15-year-old daughter Morgan, and Francesca Fisher-Eastwood, the 18-year-old daughter Eastwood had with former partner Frances Fisher.

Mailonline, 15th December 2011
Legendary actor Clint Eastwood already has more than just a Fistful of Dollars.

But he will no doubt be making a Few Dollars More when he features in a new reality show alongside his wife and daughters. The 81-year-old actor and director is set to tackle the new frontier as a guest star in an E! programme that will feature his wife Dina, 46, and their 15-year-old daughter Morgan. It will also focus on his 18-year-old child Francesca, who he had from a previous relationship with Unforgiven star Frances Fisher, and is an aspiring actress.
No doubt fans will be shocked to discover the film icon, who has won two best director academy awards, is open to appearing in a reality show. However they may also be intrigued enough to tune into the programme which according to TMZ will will explore what it's like to live in a family of Hollywood royalty. The show is being produced by top reality television specialists Bunim/Murray, who make the Kardashian family reality shows. In addition they also produce The Real World and Bad Girls Club.
Sources tell us producers are hoping to get the show on the air in the next few months.
Clint is also active politically, though the libertarian prefers to stay away from party politics. He served as a term as mayor of his home town Carmel-by-the-Sea, and served on the California State Park & Recreation Commission, and the California Film Commission.

The Any Which Way You Can star is also noted for his personal life, fathering seven children by five different women.
