It was probably only a matter of time before the animals from the world of reality television took Metta World Peace and Terrell Owens and put them in the same room with cameras rolling. That day is nearly upon us, according to the outspoken basketball star formerly known as Ron Artest.
World Peace (is World his middle name or part of his last name?) posted this video announcement on his website this morning:
Peace (we're cutting out the "World" part from here on out) also reportedly decided on Tuesday that he'll stay with the Los Angeles Lakers, but because we're all rubbernecking gawkers who can't look away from a train wreck (or better yet, two train wrecks at the same time in the same place) news of this reality show is much more intriguing.
Owens, who is out of NFL but still looking for a job at the age of 39, starred in "The T.O. Show" on VH1 between 2009 and 2011. He also did the "T.Ocho Show" with Chad Ochocinco on Versus, but that flopped (and it was a talk show, not a reality program).
Peace is only 33, but he's got just as much emotional baggage as Owens. The two are both unpredictable and outrageous, so this has the potential to be even more entertaining than that cartoon in which Mike Tyson solves mysteries with the help of a talking pigeon.
