Oprah Network to Produce Reality Show Featuring Gay NFL Player

Oprah and Michael Sam

Television mogul Oprah Winfrey apparently isn’t letting her failed Lindsay Lohan reality TV series deter her from sinking money into another flop reality series.

Oprah’s OWN Network is developing a “deeply personal” reality TV series around St. Louis Rams 7th round draft pick Michael Sam, who announced he was gay back in February.

Before he was drafted as the Rams’ 249th pick (7 picks away from Mr. Irrelevant), Sam said he wished reporters would focus on his football skills rather than his sexual preference.

“Like every player out there working to make a team right now, my focus is on playing football to the very best of my ability,” said Sam.

This is another example of Sam manipulating the media for his own selfish benefits. He has no intentions of focusing on football or he wouldn’t be filming a reality show before he has even made the team.

Social media users and Rams fans are questioning Sam’s sincerity.

One Twitter.com user pointed out the irony of Oprah’s cameras following a 7th round draft pick who probably has no chance of making the team’s roster.

    Tired of Oprah on this bull :rolleyes: and by Bull I mean people EYE don’t care about like Lindsey Lohan. She is a powerful lady and can land some more interesting people. Sam this is a dumb move. You are going to end up being a reality tv star (maybe) instead of a pro football player

    I don’t blame dude for trying to get his money. The Rams are loaded at his position so he likely won’t make the cut. Team won’t like it though. I wonder what percentage of the jersey sales he gets.

    His peoples are going to be checking for him. They are too proud and not for nothing he was a good player in the college :yes: he a trailblazer and is going to get a lot of attention. IF he stay humble, play the game with little to no drama he will be OK.

    I watched it the FIRST time it came on on Bravo. I hadn’t seen previews for it since. I couldn’t get the angle they were trying to show. Young blk successful breast cancer survivors looking for love, wanting babies and married to/dating other races…..in NYC. :shrug: It’s a cool show, I just couldn’t figure it out. But now that you said it comes on OWN, I’ll probably pick it back up. That one chicks thighs are the biz-ni-yee!
