The four-year vacuum left by Lizzie Grubman’s PoweR Girls reality show is finally filled. VH1 signed Dallas Cowboys star Terrell Owens and his two friends and publicists Kita Williams and Monique Jackson to star in a yet-to-be-named series to air this summer.
The two will help T.O. get a grip on his antics, play matchmaker, and showcase his “quiet, sensitive” side behind the “braggadocio, emotional histrionics, and sculpted physique,” according to the official press release. Hats off to VH1’s Scott Acord and Toni Herron for using vocab not often seen in PR writing.
We’re so glad. For a minute there we thought the era of publicists inserting themselves in the narrative of their clients might end prematurely.[via National Post]
