Conjoined twins set for own reality show

The babe with two heads: Abigail and Brittany Hensel. > 

Abby and Brittany Hensel — the 22-year-old conjoined twins of Oprah Winfrey fame — are back in the spotlight with their own reality TV show.
TLC’s “Abby and Brittany” follows the sisters as they graduate from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minn. and embark on the job hunt.
“Everywhere they go, they get the stares,” says a friend of the twins in a preview for the show. “I don’t know how they do that every day.”
The sisters — who share a body but have two heads — first fascinated the nation when they were featured on the cover of Life magazine in 1996 - just 6 years old at the time. The same year, they appeared twice on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

The Hensel twins have also been featured in documentaries on The Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel, and in Time magazine.

In a preview for the reality the show, Abby and Brittany appear in graduation caps and gowns, sunbathing, riding a bike and even driving a car — living life like any other recent grad.
“We throw it out there, and we let it go,” Abby says of the twins’ unique situation.
The sisters are dicephalic parapagus twins, sharing several organs but each with their own distinct personalities — and their own driver’s license.
Brittany controls the right side of the body, while Abby steers the left (and it’s her foot on the accelerator).
“Abby and Brittany” will also follow the twins as they travel through Europe.
The show premieres Aug. 28 on TLC.
I learnt the only time the two have spoken about seperating was when Abby was sick and Brittany got bored and wanted to be seperated, Abby started crying, they consoled each other and never spoke about it again.
I can't help but think, what happens when one of them eventually falls in love. Their dad believes at the very least, they will get married.

"Everywhere they go, they get the stares," a friend says in a preview for the show. "I don’t know how they do that every day."
The sisters, who share a body fused at the torso, are at pains to point out that they have very different personalities.
But one thing they won't do is talk about boyfriends.
"The whole world doesn’t need to know who we are seeing, what we are doing and when we are going to do it. But believe me, we are totally different people," says Brittany.
"Yeah, we are going to be moms one day, but we don’t want to talk about how it’s going to work yet," Abby adds.
The girls are dicephalic parapagus, which means they share one body but have two separate heads.
Their parents, Patty and Mike, said they never considered having them separated. "From the first time we saw them we thought they were beautiful. I kissed Abigail and then Brittany and gave them both a hug," Mrs Hensel said.
"It's been like that ever since – two kisses and a hug for the most beautiful children in the world."
Abby says: "The best thing about being conjoined twins is there’s always someone there to talk to."
"And you are never alone," Brittany adds.
The girls never let their condition get in the way of a normal life, and in the show they explain how they drive a car.
