My girl Dee is going to kill me for reviewing this but she was taking to long. A couple of weeks ago I posted a hate letter to reality tv. I vowed I would never tune in (except to watch Project Runway) but I must retract that statement. I LOVE ‘The T.O. Show’! LOVE IT! There are the obvious reasons, like his body, which is SICK by the way and that dashing smile and that body…you get the point. I can look at T.O. from the neck down all day. But other than that chiseled frame, the show is actually good! It starts off with him getting cut from the Dallas Cowboys and how that effects him. Usually we see a very well written media response from a player that gets cut and never any real emotions. You could tell that Terrell was hurt by this news. Then here comes his homegirls turned Publicists/Assistants Mo and Kita to save the day. They jump right in to damage control.
The first two episodes of the season are good so far. He finds out he’s going to Buffalo, moves to LA, links up with a prostitute Realtor and reaches out to his ex-fiance. His publicist has been on a search all her life to find her half sister and she finds her. You learn very quickly that there’s a side of T.O. that the media will not show. Other than the cocky, confident, flirtatious T.O. the athlete, there’s Terrell, a man. He’s apologetic and admits how he treated his ex-fiance; he’s not embarrassed to express his feelings; he desires real friendships and wants good people around him like his long time friend Pablo and Mo and Kita.
I can’t wait for next week! Terrell finally sees his ‘father’ that he hasn’t seen in over 20 years. It sounds like the man who abandoned his child was living across the street from Terrell his entire life. INTERESTING!
Tune in Mondays at 10 p.m. on Vh1.
By the way, did I mention the body??
