Swimming sensation, also known as ‘Pool Shark’, Michael Phelps has reportedly been approached by Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore about getting his own reality show on TV. Now, since every other celebrity is doing that these days… we should not be surprised.
Life & Style reports, “It will focus on Michael’s new life and fame. Demi and Michael were really chummy at the MTV Video Music Awards after-party in September. She and Ashton are amazed by how humble and down-to-earth he is. They think America will fall in love with him.”
While the news is still not confirmed, a recent poll said that people would actually NOT like to see his show since they think they’ve gotten over the guy as soon as the Olympics ended!
Also, looking over Ashton’s history with the reality TV… apart from Punk’d, there seems to be no mainline celeb reality show under his banner. Phelps has already had his moments with entertainment television on shows like SNL, Jay Leno and MTV VMAs. He was recently spotted holding a custom Speedo and hosting TRL in New York.
Meanwhile, Bob Schaller, who has known Phelps and his coach for over eight years, has released a book called Michael Phelps: The Untold Story of a Champion based on the amazing journey of the greatest Olympic athlete that the world knows today. Read more about the book here.
