Barry Bonds gets an ESPN reality show; Sarah Ferguson asked to host

ESPN2 will air a series that focuses on Barry Bonds’ “pursuit of Hank Aaron’s career home run record,” according to the AP. The show will also be “a weekly behind-the-scenes look at Bonds and the San Francisco Giants.” It will be the next season of ESPN’s series The Season.

Besides “two to three cameras filming Bonds most of the season,” Bonds on Bonds “will also include archival footage and game highlights.” But the team’s manager, Felipe Alou, said “I don’t believe it will affect this veteran team. The main guy is Barry and if he does his thing with the bat and is not affected by it, I don’t think we’ll be.” The show debuts April 4 on ESPN2.

Meanwhile, Channel 4 has asked Sarah Ferguson “to host a reality diet show which would see her move into the homes of overweight families,” the Mirror reports. An insider tells the paper that the Duchess of York “is very excited about this TV project and she’s keen to do it. She is looking brilliant at the moment. She’s lost so much weight in the past and would love to help other families hoping to shed the pounds.” However, they’re still “only at the talks stage” right now.
