The Ron Artest moment we’ve all been expecting is finally here. No, he didn’t challenge a cactus to a duel … he got a deal for his own reality show.
Controversial Los Angeles Lakers forward Ron Artest is back in the headlines, only this time to star in his own reality series.
The bad boy NBA player is to develop and produce the “They Call Me Crazy” show with E1 Entertainment and Tijuana Entertainment.
The series will document the ups and downs of Artest’s life, allowing him to “make amends for past transgressions,” according to E1 Entertainment, and help develop aspiring musicians through his hip-hop label, Tru Warier, to be supported by E1 Music.
No word yet on whether his plans to “make amends for past transgressions” will include him inventing a time machine and going back to November 2004 to prevent the Pacers franchise from taking a six-year nosedive and instead with a title for the State of Indiana. But stay tuned.
Could there be a better name for a Ron Artest show than “They Call Me Crazy?” I submit that there cannot.
There’s no indication of when the show will start, or what channel it will air on, but as soon as it goes on-air it will instantly be the best show on television. I mean, between his random Internet videos, his escapades with his recording artists, that time he went on Jimmy Kimmel in his underwear, and about a million other things, Ron Artest has basically been living a reality show anyways — now he’ll have the cameras. I consider us all very lucky.
Should be entertaining.
