Derrick Rose: An Absentee Television Star

by November 03, 2010

The stud point guard missed his scheduled taping for a TV show you’ve probably never heard of, something that made the producers quite mad. The NY Post reports breathlessly: “NBA star Derrick Rose sparked fury on the set of CBS’s ‘The Good Wife’ yesterday when he didn’t show up to film an agreed cameo appearance in New York. The Bulls point guard refused to come out of his house in Chicago when the crew sent a car to pick him up on Tuesday morning, sources tell us. Rose — who helped the Bulls to victory over the Portland Trail Blazers at Chicago’s United Center on Monday night — also refused to give the show’s producers an explanation for his no-show, even though they had him booked on a flight to New York, the source added. One insider told us, ‘The Good Wife’ is set in Chicago but filmed in New York, so they like to have cameos from prominent people from Chicago.”
