The reality show surrounding the Lakers is always captivating. The Lakers' front office is looking to make roster changes. Kobe Bryant is wondering if he'll ever win his sixth NBA championship. Pau Gasol is worrying whether he'll remain a Laker. Andrew Bynum is noticing the angst on whether he will fully mature. Metta World Peace is thriving on acting goofy. The Lakers' reality show rarely focuses just on the basketball court. It focuses on everything off of it too. With Lamar Odom, the Lakers were eventually treated to too many doses of the Kardashian family. With World Peace, the Lakers learned that he flirted with several reality television ideas without any of them coming to fruition. And now with Jeanie Buss, the Lakers executive vice president will stay involved with the return of Women of Wrestling in a show titled "Wow Girls." 44 Blue Productions described the new show in a statement as "an unflinching, behind-the-ropes look at the rebuilding of a wrestling franchise and the transformative journey of a group of women and the executives who are putting it all on the line in the rough and tumble world of professional wrestling." Those hoping that Buss appears as a professional model and poses the same way she once did for Playboy will be disappointed, though. The release says Buss will be serving as an executive producer and not an in-ring partcipant. She also filled that role when she partnered with wrestling promoter David McLane and 44 Blue Productions to form the league in 2000. The stakes are high, the competition is intense and the business is unforgiving, Buss said in a statement. Growing up I collected Wonder Woman and Supergirl comics and WOW is that come to life. These are real superheroes. Its time for a platform for these incredible women! --Mark Medina
