Prime to the Time

The answer to two separate and ongoing questions appear to now be one in the same…

  1. Where will Deion Sanders show up next?
  2. What B- or C-list celebrity will be next in line to get a reality show?

Said answer comes in the form of a reality show on the Oxygen ‘network’ entitled: “Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love.”  That’s obviously the logical next step after playing for four MLB and & NFL franchises (including the Redskins), recording an ‘album,’ serving as a talking head for CBS, NFL Network, ESPN, hosting Saturday Night Live & the Miss USA Pageant, appearing as himself on “Moesha,” “Walker Texas Ranger,” and “Arli$$,” polickticking for an NFL head coaching gig, ‘mentoring’ DeAngelo Hall, Devin Hester, and Noel Devine, becoming part-owner of an Arena Football League franchise, allegedly urging a rape victim’s mother not to report the crime, and causing a stir with a column on Michael Vick in a Fort Myers, FL newspaper which included these nuggets:

“I have three highly-trained protection German shepherds, just in case someone wants to rob my family. Believe me, you don’t want to deal with them. With one German command, our dog Yascho turns into Cujo. And for the record, I live around the corner from the police station, so it won’t take them long to show up and save you from the dogs.”

“I believe Vick had a passion for dogfighting. I know many athletes who share his passion. The allure is the intensity and the challenge of a dog fighting to the death. It’s like ultimate fighting, but the dog doesn’t tap out when he knows he can’t win. It reminds me of when I wore a lot of jewelry back in the day because I always wanted to have the biggest chain or the biggest, baddest car. It gives you status.” 

For details on the show, see reviews in the New York Times, New York Daily News, and on espn.com (featuring an interview with Prime).
