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.
