I don’t think about Pete Rose all that often. Back in April of 2011, when he turned 70, I found myself getting soft on the guy and thinking he should be let into the Baseball Hall of Fame. I still feel that way but pretty much after writing that blog post, I forgot all about Pete.
Now I turn around and find out that Pete has remarried. Maybe this is old news to most of you, but not to me. He married an ex-Playboy model named Kiana Kim who is much younger than 71-year-old Pete. Why would he marry an ex-Playboy model? I know—stupid question.
Pete and Kiana have now been contracted to have their own reality show on TLC. This will be about blending their two families, will include a road trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and will also address Kiana’s breast reduction surgery.
I’m not sure what to make of any of this. Apparently, this is Pete’s reality and along with his wife, he’s going to be sharing it with us.
TLC has given the green light to five episodes. That’s not much of a commitment and I can’t help but wonder if the network thinks that many viewers simply won’t be interested in this. Therefore I have to ask the question. . . are you?
