Sorry jersey chasers… Ryan Lochte will not be the next Bachelor, but you can still see him on TV only in his own reality show. The Olympic swimmer confirmed he is getting his own reality show, “They follow me on my normal day, just training, doing my own fashion line…It’s gonna be me, me being myself. And I’m pretty much going to show the world that and my new fashion line.”
In case anyone was confused, the show will be about Lochte and his clothing line. The 28-year old will join the E! family- who is apart of the NBC Network and home to the Olympics. It is unclear if Prince Harry will be making any cameos…
Terrell Owens is already has his own reality show on VH1, but the Cincinnati Bengals wide reciver now wants to develop a family sitcom based on his life. According to The Daily, the show will be named “8 & 1,” after the two number T.O has worn throughout his NFL career.
“It’s loosely based on my life and my career. I have four kids by three different moms,” Owens said. “It will showcase my skills as an actor, which is something I want to do after football.”
Owens, who has said he wants to persue acting after his NFL career, would play the lead charcter in the show, Terrell O’Neal, who lives with his mom, four children, two baby mamas and best friend. Now that’s what I call a Full House!
Terrell Owens is no stranger to controversy, and this time the 37-year old free agent tore his ACL while filming his VH1 reality show. The injury occurred during a personal workout. On VH1′s The T.O Show, cameras follow Owens along with his close friend, Monique Jackson, and his personal assistant, Kita Williams. But this is one storyline T.O has been able to keep under wraps. According to ESPN, Owens had surgery over a month ago to repair the injury by noted surgeon James Andrew.
Last season, T.O was with the Cincinnati Bengals but failed to live up to his one- year contract hype and was placed on injured reserves. During the 2005 Super Bowl, Owens famously played through what many thought of as a career ending fibula injury, but now entering his 15th year in the league, it will be more difficult for Owens to find a team who is willing to sign him.
Yet another sports star is coming out with his own reality show… this time LA Lakers bad boy Ron Artest is showing his softer side. The player responsible for the worst brawl in NBA history has a new show called “Last Second Shot.” Cameras will follow Artest as he mentors a group of parolees by teaching them life lessons through basketball.
According to Artest, “We’re gonna put them through an intensive experience, give them hope and confidence to change their lives.”
Artest himself is no stranger to second chances, not only was he reinstated to the league after being suspended for the 2005 season, but was also arrested for domestic violence in 2007 and spent ten days in jail.
While Artest’s reality show has a production company, no network has picked it up yet… but maybe Artest can start with Plaxico Burress.
