400m track gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross and her husband Jacksonville Jaguards Aaron Ross had their reality show pilot picked up.

Sanya Richards-Ross (oh she off 400m gold medal fame) had her reality show pilot picked up by the WE channel. The same channel that airs such favorites as Bridezillas and Braxton Family Values. The pilot was apparently shot before she went to London.

The TV pilot stems from a development deal WE had with unscripted production company Good Clean Fun (Tia & Tamera). It was shot in Austin before Richards-Ross left for London and offers an insider’s look at her rigorous training regime as well as her personal life. Richards-Ross is married to two-time Super Bowl champion Aaron Ross who just signed a 3-year $15 million contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The reality series reveals the often intense rivalry between the hyper competitive couple. (Ross was in the stands on Sunday cheering on his wife with her parents when she won the Olympic gold.) The TV project also provides a behind-the-scenes look at Richard-Ross’ inner circle that includes her mother Sharon acting as her agent, her father Archie working as her manager and her sister Shari as her business partner. Sanya and Aaron are not strangers to WE — their nuptials were featured on the channel’s show Platinum Weddings.

Richards-Ross and her husband are an accomplished and very good-looking pair. So I’m not opposed to seeing them on TV and I think two married athletes is bound to be interesting. Howwwwwwwwwwwever. Based on what I’ve seen, reality TV kills marriages and it’s about the last thing I’d want to do if I finally found a man I love. I certainly hope it all works out for the Rosses –as the great prophet Diamond in the movie Player’s Club said “Make the money, don’t let it make you.” I know, deep right? [To finish reading this post click Read More] I would plan to watch the show but I don’t have WE channel. If it turns up on you tube I’ll definitely post an episode.  Here’s a clip from their Platinum Weddings episode mentioned above.
