Carnie Wilson Praises Daughter Lola, Says She Can ‘Sing Anybody In This Family Under The Table’


As the daughter of The Beach Boys co-founder and singer Marilyn Wilson-Rutherford, it is only right that music continues to be a big deal in Carnie Wilson’s household. The singer-songwriter, who is one of the Wilson Phillips trio, recently praised her daughter’s singing talent.

Carnie and her guitarist husband Rob Bonfiglio, share two daughters, Lola and Luci, and both girls have a knack for music. Luci plays the cello gracefully, while eighteen-year-old Lola sings. “I’m used to family singing together. That’s what we do,” Carnie told PEOPLE ahead of this week’s issue.

Carnie feels “so lucky to have” a well-curated family of musical talent, which gives her the chance to perform publicly with her own. “Being on stage with my daughters— Lola singing, Luci has come and played— is the greatest joy I can ever think of,” she gushed, after which she dwelt on Lola who enjoys sharing the spotlight with her.

Unlike 14-year-old Luci who prefers to play, Lola “can sing anybody in this family under the table.”

“To stand beside Lola and hear that voice, her voice is so beautiful. I can’t get over it. I get emotional when I’m on stage, so I have to look the other way,” the proud mom gushed. “To hear her sing and the audience being moved by her singing is one of the best feelings in my life that I’ve ever felt.”


The Wilson Phillips singer also expressed her intent to record music with Lola and her dad, Rob. “That would be a great thing. We’re starting to write songs together very slowly. Writing songs with Lola is tapping into a creative part of me that I haven’t done in many years,” she explained. Carnie further revealed that she has also inspired Lola to do more than entertaining.


After giving up sugar and gluten last year, Carnie shed up to 45 lbs, which is her first huge weight loss in 14 years. Her transformation has led Lola to have gluten-free pasta instead and get it kicking at the gym too. “I try so hard to tell them that beauty and love and self-worth comes from what’s inside of you and not what’s on the exterior,” Carnie also clarified, adding that the girls are aware of her past struggles. “They know that I was addicted to drugs and alcohol. They know that I have a food addiction. They know that it’s hard for me to get motivated to exercise,” she admitted.
