TO VH1 reality show
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...urn=nfl,136818

... he's going to get an actual reality show. You can blame VH1 for it, as they'll be airing "The Terrell Owens Project." Here's a snippet from the press release:

The series follows one of the NFL’s biggest and most outspoken stars, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Terrell “T.O.” Owens. In the series, T.O. will be shadowed in the off-season by his best friends and publicists Monique Jackson and Kita Williams as they battle the two sides of his large personality. Viewers will discover that behind all the braggadocio, emotional histrionics, and sculpted physique that is the outspoken media magnet known to the world as “T.O.” — there is also a quiet, sensitive, mild-mannered guy from Alexander City, Alabama…that’s Terrell.

Wow, congratulations, Terrell. A VH1 reality show. You're now in the same boat with Bret Michaels, Flavor Flav, and Hulk Hogan. Dream big, my friend.

The news comes on the heels of the announcement that Michael Irvin will also be hosting a reality show that will send one lucky fellow to Cowboys training camp. And all of this is comes after a disappointing football season that many would argue was derailed by too much drama and the draining presence of too many prima donnas. Some might call that irony.

The upside is that if Owens gets cut this off-season, there might be VH1 cameras around to catch it on tape. So I'm looking forward to that.

Myself, I've never doubted that Terrell Owens was a nice, compassionate, caring person who had a very sensitive side. I suspect that's what VH1 will be highlighting here, and hey, it might even be entertaining. I did watch every episode of that one VH1 show that featured Peter Brady, the hot model, Verne Troyer, Chyna, and Da Brat, so I'm in no position to be a TV snob about it.

What I don't see, though, is how it helps the Cowboys or even Owens himself. It seems to be that the Cowboys are in a place where they need stability, and part of that is either going to come from excising Owens, or Owens proving that he can be a stable and reliable part of the team.

And if he does end up getting cut, he's going to face the real possibility that no other team will want him, for fear that he'll upset their apple cart, too. I don't know how an offseason reality show helps him prove to anyone that he won't be a distraction.

I saw previews for this... and thought SERIOUSLY!?!?!? What's next a Ray Lewis Slice 'em and Dice 'em Knife Set Infomercial?!?!

They also paint that rapper... T.I. as a saint in some new series they are trying to have out before he goes to jail as his community service... give me a break! (It's either VH1 or MTV, I think it's MTV, then again they are one in the same... owned together)
