In what looks to have the train wreck reality show potential of Toddlers & Tiaras, Sister Wives, The Littlest Groom, BridalPlasty, I Didn't Know I Was Pregnant, Snooki & JWoww, Charm School With Ricki Lake, Amish In The City, Temptation Island... ok I guess that's enough...  Anyways, in what looks to have the train wreck reality show potential of that mess above which is chipping away at the founders' dream for America, Pete Rose will be Reality TV's newest star according to Entertainment Weekly: "With a working title of Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project, the show will follow the 71-year-old Rose and his thirtysomething model fiancée Kiana Kim (who has posed for Playboy) through their daily lives as they try to blend their families. There are some challenges along the way. A few family members are apprehensive about the relationship. And while Rose is based in Las Vegas (where he signs baseball memorabilia) or is on the road making public appearances, Kim and her two children live in Los Angeles. “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 tells EW, adding: “It’s not going to be classless — like it seems like a lot of reality shows aren’t really reality, but our reality show is going to be funny, entertaining, and real.” Who doesn't want to watch a 70 year old lying, gambling, baseball playing ex-con and his Playboy model fiancee that's half his age and their daily hijinks!  Can you just imagine the tugging of the heartstrings and chills, thrills, and spills this has to offer?  The show looks like some sort of spin-off to Modern Family, except in a creepy sort of reality show way.  This latest attempt at Pete Rose trying to rehabilitate his image seems like it's going to go over about as well as Pete Rose's sell-all confessional. I swear, if there's an episode that centers around a Pete Rose autograph signing with Virgil, I'll lose all hope in humanity. (via Entertainment Weekly)
