I think we're all used to seeing olympic champions becoming spokespeople for various products and brands; after all, they've put in a tremendous amount of time into reaching their goals, so it makes sense that they'd take advantage of the opportunities that come with the recognition. So, I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that reality tv offers are being thrown out there at them, too.
Track and field gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross has reportedly sealed a deal for her own reality show pilot on WEtv. It focus on her training as well as her private life with husband Aaron Ross, a two-time Super Bowl champ who now plays for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The WEtv show would also focus on the competitive rivalry this athletic pair have, as well as offer a glimpse of Richards-Ross' relationship with her mom/agent, dad/manager, and sister/business partner.
Actually, that one sounds rather interesting, especially since her family members are connected business wise, too. What do you think? It has more appeal to me than watching a group of rich catty women like the Real Housewives of... trainwrecks! LOL
