Shawn Marion To Star In Reality TV Show

And another one. Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion is currently preparing to close out the Oklahoma City Thunder, but come next month he’ll be busy shooting a pilot for his reality TV show. From TMZ: “Marion’s shooting a pilot for a reality TV show right around the same time the Mavs crush Miami in the NBA finals (if there is a God). It’s tentatively called “The Ladies in My Life” — and big surprise, it’s all about Shawn and the important women in his day-to-day … including his mom, sisters and publicist. One of the featured family members is Shawn’s twin sister Shawnett — who’s 6-feet tall and can DUNK a basketball!!  Oh, we almost forgot – the show is being filmed in the NBA star’s 14,000 square foot Dallas mansion.  All it’s missing now … A CHAMPIONSHIP RING, BABY!”

    I can’t wait to not watch this.

  • MikeC.

    Remind me to cancel my cable at the end of the Finals so I don’t accidentally surf across this stupid idea.

    @MikeC real talk…Comcast bils is outta this world, and ain’t **** on TV. Ain’t no history on the History Channel, ain’t nothing to learn on The Learning Channel, ain’t nothing to discover on the Discovery Channel, no music on Music Television, and not a lick of news on these news channels…..I’m literally paying for ESPN lmao FML….I might have to take you up on Mike

  • MikeC.

    ^ It could be worse dude. You could be in Canada and not even have ESPN. Like me. I’m paying almost entirely for NBA-TV Canada. The National Geographic Channel is pretty tight. Besides that, there ain’t ish to watch on TV.

    Nice thing about canceling your cable for the summer is that you can re-activate it in the fall when the providers are running their student specials for the college/university kids. Shaw cable (my provider) gives 6 months at 50% off. So I basically pay full price for just March-June. Hopefully they don’t catch on to me.

    gonna be hard to get a wife with that many women around. women don’t want to live with your mom.

  • Fat Lever

    Is this like his NBA career, where he says he wants to be the star, but then realizes that he’s not good enough to carry a team, so he relegates himself to the background? If so, look for season 2 to star his mom/sister/publicist, with Shawn playing the background.

  • iLL wiLL



    MikeC I don’t what you talking about. We do have ESPN and I live in Ottawa. Most of espn shows play on either TSN or TSN2. Your right though I’m getting sick and tired of NBA TV Canada. There should just called it Raptors TV.

    Reality TV is the worst thing ever invented for TV, excluding “Queen of Jordan” which is the best reality show ever.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    @ MUBWAR: That’s not the same as ESPN though. It’s still TSN and TSN2. And then we also have to flip to Sportsnet Ontario for games. Why not give us the American channels? I don’t even have TBS anymore, it’s called “Peachtree TV.” What the frick is Peachtree TV?!
    And also, if we want HBO it has to be “HBO Canada.” What is that?!
    And we don’t even get FOX most of the time, it’s usually some paid programming thing–and then we have to watch FOX and NBC shows on Global. We don’t even have REAL NBC, it’s always MSNBC-Spokane. Wtf?!?!?!?!

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    I don’t usually catch my shows on TV though (I prefer to watch the DVDs instead of waiting once a week) so it’s not that big of a deal to me. So I guess my complaints don’t mean much, lol.

    Great article! I love the Mavs. Did anyone read the funny article about Mark Cuban trading the Mavericks?


  • DeeDre

    Come on guys, I hate reality t.v as much as the rest of you but this might be passable. I’ll catch the first few minutes just to witness the unveiling and probably never watch it again. I mean it could be worse though. At least its not show where he’s narrowing down a bunch of golddiggers trying to see which one he’ll date for like 2 weeks
