To say that Dina Eastwood — wife of Clint — is close to the boy band Overtone might be an understatement.

So how well does she know these six guys from South Africa?

“I do know what type of underwear everyone wears,” she told reporters recently, “because I’ve washed it.”

Overtone has lived with the Eastwoods for three years, and that living arrangement is the focus of the reality series “Mrs. Eastwood & Company” (debuting 10 p.m. EDT Sunday, E!).

Dina Eastwood is the manager of the group, which she discovered while visiting her husband on the set of “Invictus.” Virtually penniless, the six-man act came to live with the Eastwoods and get it together.

The series will not look at the Eastwood marriage or get very personal with Clint, she says. It’s all about the singing group and the living arrangements. This won’t be another Kardashians-type of show.

However, family does play into the episodes.

Complicating matters is the fact that the Eastwoods have teenage daughters, and, of course, there’s Clint, who likes his privacy.

“The guy is quiet,” she says of Clint. “Sometimes not quiet at home ever, but the guy makes movies ... I worked in television, and I’m loud. And he just respects the fact that I’ve done something with this amazing band, and I want to see it through, and I’m hopeful that we’ll get a national and international platform for my six adopted sons.

“He’s not doing cartwheels that I’m doing a reality show. You know, he’d rather that I play golf with him more. But he’s excited to see the success of the band.”

Clint has a limited role in the series, she says. Dina and Clint Eastwood have been married 16 years.

“There are no episodes about Clint, but he graciously appears in a couple of episodes, if that makes sense,” she says. “And he doesn’t have a problem with it. It was his choice.”
