Willis McGahee, now 34, has decided to join the cast of Famously Single where he will learn how to date responsibly. I say that because he has eight children with seven mothers. Already in the premiere episode (will air June 14th 10/9c) he said, “Don’t judge me” when he revealed how many kids he had in a speed dating session. Sorry Willis, you will be judged for that.
The Bills drafted McGahee, 23rd overall in the 2003 NFL Draft. He had a solid three years in Buffalo but his disdain for the city got him traded to the Baltimore Ravens. The Bills knew what he was as a player but the trade was more of a statement of the kind of personality that he has. NFL teams don’t love that. Reality shows do. He talked about his cheating in the past. He already showed that he probably needs the most guidance on the show in the first episode!
Calum Best is another interesting participant. He is a British-American model with a very famous father – – George Best. An international soccer player who starred with Manchester United in the late 60’s and passed away at the age of 59. He was a heavy drinker who got a liver transplant and eventually passed due to multiple organ failure. He sent a message out in the newspapers in 2005, “Don’t Die Lie Me”. Calum, 35, was shown drinking, so it will be interesting to see if the relationship expert, Dr. Darcy Sterling, can help him in that area as well.
Here’s the rest of the cast:
Pauly D is an internationally celebrated DJ, but is still known best for his semantics on “Jersey Shore.” He affirms, “I have a reputation as being a ladies man, hooking up with all of these girls. But I am looking for that one to share all this stuff with. Everyone told me don’t look, the girl is supposed to come, but she hasn’t come so I have to be doing something wrong.”
Brandi Glanville is best known as the former troublemaker from “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” Recently recovering from a divorce from her husband of 13 years, she reflects, “I’m single because I tend to sabotage relationships when I get even the smallest amount of suspicion. Only a small percentile of men can actually keep it in their pants.”
Aubrey O’Day is a platinum selling artist from “Making the Band” and Danity Kane. She states, “I’m hitting foul balls from left to right. I have no idea how to find love, I notice all of the red flags in relationships then in the very end I’m like WTF, I already knew this was going to end like this, why did I do this to myself?”
Josh Murray unfortunately did not find love even after winning “The Bachelorette.” He reveals, “I haven’t been in a lot of relationships, it’s been for my entire life since high school. So I’m pretty picky.”
Jessica White is a supermodel that has graced the pages of Sports Illustrated, GQ and Vogue, and has dawned the infamous wings of a Victoria’s Secret angel. A self-proclaimed gypsy, who has dated many high profile men declares, “I have a two year commitment phobia and I call it the two year itch. And after two years I will pack my bags and get the f*ck out of there.”
Somaya Reece is a fabulous Latin music artist from VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Hollywood” who made headlines getting caught in a web of women involved with the same man. She explains, “It’s hard dating in general but once you reach celebrity, child, it’s even harder.”
This show was interesting, that’s for sure.
