Pete Rose Reality Show Filming In Cooperstown
Add disgraced former baseball star Pete Rose to the list of celebrities lending their lives to the reality TV world. The upcoming TLC series tentatively called “Pete Rose and Kiana Kim Family Project” will be filming segments today in Cooperstown, home of the National baseball Hall of Fame, an institution that Rose has been banned from joining due to his involvement in sports gambling. The Oneonta Daily Star has a few places to look for “Charlie Hustle” if you happen to be in town .
Ted Hargrove, owner of T.J.’s, a restaurant on Main Street in the village, said Rose and a TLC film crew will be taping an episode of the show Friday at his eatery. Friends of Rose also told The Daily Star that the former Cincinnati Reds star will be signing baseballs for fans — at $60 for each signature — at Safe at Home, a sports collectible shop at 91 Main St., immediately after leaving T.J.’s. Rose is expected to return to that shop to sign more baseballs Saturday and Sunday.
The series will center on the relationship of the 71 year old Rose and his 30-something fiancee Kiana Kim as they prepare for their upcoming wedding. Will the wedding come off? What are the odds?
