OWN To Premiere New Reality Show About NBA Player JaVale McGee And 'Mom'ager

JaVale McGee

Since I have admitted before that I'm certainly no sports follower and know next to nothing about basketball, I'll leave it to you experts out there to tell me if this is a good idea or not.

But yesterday the Oprah Winfrey Network announced that it would soon premiere a new reality show Millionaire Mama's Boy which will follow the daily antics of Denver Nuggets center JaVale Mcgee and his "colorful" (as some have called her) mother or "mom"ager (as others have called her) Pamela.

In an official statement the network said that the show will "explore" the dynamic relationship between former WNBA basketball star Pamela McGee and her 25-year-old son JaVale. Famous for being domineering on and off the court, Pamela is not only JaVale’s mom, she’s also his business manager, working to build an empire while trying to keep a tight rein on the glitz and girls that come with the life of an NBA star. Meanwhile, Pamela’s managing her own life, which consists of her equally fabulous single girlfriends who also have sons coming up in the league. When Pamela needs someone to laugh with or a shoulder to cry on, she turns to her girls. Like Pamela, they are single mothers raising their sons while dating and chasing their own ambitions".

The statement continued...

"With her hectic schedule, Pamela relies on her “manny” Jay to get things done. She trusts him to oversee her mansion, bank accounts and properties. While her friends think there could be a love connection, Pamela and Jay deny it – but they certainly fight like a married couple. Like any good mother, Pamela is a force to be reckoned with, and no one is going to stop Mama McGee from taking care of her own. After all, she is basketball royalty herself. They may be crazy, loud and a little wild, but family’s what it’s all about for the McGees and their friends. Ultimately, it’s a show about family, love and the unbreakable bond between a mother and her son; all seven feet of him".

Sounds like must see TV, though no premiere date has been yet announced. Still doesn’t explain how he got the name JaVale though.

But the question is, will you be watching?
