Mike Tyson is a reluctant reality series junkie


Mike Tyson said his girlfriend has turned him into a reluctant reality series junkie.  He frequently watches “For the Love of Ray J,” “Candy Girls,” “Tough Love,” and all the “Real Housewives” series.

“She got me watching “Dancing with the Stars” and said, ‘You should be on “Dancing With the Stars,” ‘ ” Tyson told MTV News. The boxer, who is the subject of the new documentary “Tyson” (in theaters Friday), was not exactly receptive to the idea. “I’m living with this woman, and I’m saying, ‘Are you sick?’ ”

Despite his girlfriend’s best efforts, Tyson said he has no plans to star in his own reality show.

“She said, ‘Hon, listen. I know some people, and I think it would be a good idea if you’re a producer and you control everything that happened and you have your own reality show,’ ” Tyson recalled. “I said, ‘Are you crazy?’ “
