One of baseball’s most controversial players is getting his own reality show. Pete Rose was banned from baseball in 1991 for betting on games. Now, the all-time hit leader will get a second chance at stardom.
TLC has signed on for the series, Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project. Cameras will follow 71-year-old Rose and his thirtysomething Playboy model fiancée Kiana Kim. “She’s got younger kids and I’ve got [four adult] kids, and we go through the same things everybody else does: taking the braces off, making sure they get their education and they go to basketball practice or acting class,” Rose told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s not going to be classless like it seems like a lot of reality shows aren’t really reality.”
Hopefully MLB commissioner Bud Seilg is a TLC fan because Rose said, “If the commissioner [Bud Selig] ever finds it in its heart to give me a second chance, I’m sure that we’ll address the. But if I ever make the Hall of Fame, I’ll be the happiest guy in the world because I understand what it means.”
