Kiss from a Rose
Hold. The. Phone.
Ladies and Gentlemen, today I learned of the marriage of my two favorite things in the entire world: TLC and the Cincinnati Reds.
I don’t know if this was already common knowledge that I clearly missed during those couple of weeks I was living in a cave off the coast of Fiji, but this is maybe one of the greatest discoveries of my life.
TLC, the network responsible for bringing us some of the finest reality television of our time including Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Breaking Amish, Long Island Medium, Say Yes to the Dress, and other shows I watch downright RELIGIOUSLY, is presenting a five-episode reality series staged around Pete Rose’s life. TLC’s cameras follow Pete around as he and his fiancee, Playboy model Kiana Kim, live their lives and work on bringing their families together. This is just so damn exciting.
Seriously, if you know me, or even follow me on Twitter (@thetinacis), you know how much I absolutely adore TLC, so this news is like finding out that Santa Claus is not only SO SO SO real, but is moving in across the hall and appointing you Christmas’s Official Chief Christmas Ale/Cookie Taster. (Ok, that might actually be better than Pete’s reality show but not much better.)
In the full article, that you can read here, Pete says, “It’s not going to be like the Kardashians, though. I’m not going to turn into a Bruce Jenner.” Pete, how freakin’ cute are you? Not only are you making Kardashians references, but you are actually comparing your show to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”? I just want to hug you so hard that your head pops off.
Here’s Pete and Kiana:
While the working title of the show is “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project”, I’m throwing the title of this post in the ring for the official title. I think we could convince Seal.
Ok, gotta go cry tears of joy.
I LOVE YOU PETE ROSE AND I LOVE YOU TLC.
