He also said that he first did not want to do reality TV.
But he explained he finally said yes because he is on top again: ‘I have this resurgence going on, so why not at this moment show people what it is like, not when you are over or retired?’
That is when he added: ‘It’s the ultimate home movie, you will see.’
He also said he was doing the reality TV show for his family.
Uh-oh! ‘This is going to shock people,’ he shared before saying that the show will be an ‘ultimate home movie’
‘This is everything… I have conquered everything. I have been very lucky,’ he said.

Tulsa King tells the story of New York mafia capo Dwight ‘The General’ Manfredi, played by Stallone.
The General is released from prison and exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa Oklahoma. After becoming suspicious of his mob family, he slowly builds his own crew.
‘This is the one I have been waiting for. Even Rocky was a little thug-like, a little gangster, but he was a bad one,’ Stallone divulged to Extra.
‘This guy actually is a good one, but he’s not a vicious one. I had a lot of debating with people because in the beginning, he was really tough. I said, “Why don’t you have him be more of an organizer, a cunning individual rather than physical?” And it looks like the gamble paid off.’
The renowned actor also confessed that the character The General was derived from his life. ‘I really pull a lot of memories out and try and show the humor, because sometimes life can really be a black comedy, unfortunately,’ he said.
He continued: ‘That’s what makes people laugh, because they go, “That happened to me.” … I didn’t hold back, so this guy is always messing up a little bit… He’s very self-aware of his faults.’
Tulsa King will release exclusively on Paramount+ on November 13.
