Stewart Volland/AXS TVEddie Money‘s new AXS TV reality series, Real Money, premieres this Sunday, April 9. Reminiscent of The Osbournes, the show focuses on the adventures, at home and on the road, of the dysfunctional Money clan, including Eddie’s wife of 38 years, Laurie, and his five grown children, all of whom still live at home.

The 69-year-old rocker tells ABC Radio that one of the reasons he decided to do the show was to help his kids afford to move out of the house.

“I thought it’d be good for the kids,” he maintains. Having said that, Eddie gripes, “[E]very time I turn around they’re throwing another f****** mic on me, but you do what you can for your children.”

An entertaining aspect of the show is Eddie’s comical frustration with his kids, three of whom — daughter Jesse and sons Dez and Julian — sometimes play in his touring band.

“[When] I go out [on tour] with the kids…I’m up in the morning, the limousine’s waiting to get going, and I’m knocking on hotel doors,” Money says. “I don’t want to be a road manager. I don’t want to handle these kids. You know, ‘Who’s late?’ ‘Who doesn’t have their I.D. at the airport?’ It’s crazy.”

Meanwhile, on Real Money‘s second episode, Eddie and Laurie enjoy two tickets to paradise when they travel to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for Sammy Hagar‘s 70th birthday bash.

“Going down to Sammy’s was great,” Eddie says. “Sammy’s good people. And [Metallica‘s] James Hetfield was down there…[and] a lot of old people that I hadn’t seen in a while. And Sammy’s club down there is amazing. I really wish I was still drinking because everybody was whooping it up.”

Real Money airs at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT.
