Vick won’t be a reality TV star

The only reality show imprisoned quarterback Michael Vick is interested in is straightening out his life and returning to the NFL.

Joel Segal, who represents Vick, said that a recent report that Vick is seeking to do a reality show following his release from prison this summer “is false.”

“Any speculation of Mike doing a reality show is false,” Segal told on Thursday. “He has no interest in that. Absolutely false.”

Vick’s lawyers did tell a judge in Vick’s recent bankruptcy hearing in Virginia that the former Falcons star could partake in a documentary that could help him earn $600,000 and help him pay off some of his debts. There have been no specifics about that potential project.

A report Wednesday said that Vick has spoken to television producers and executives about formulating a reality program that would track his return to society once he completes a 23-month sentence this July on a federal dogfighting conviction. Vick, who starred for the Falcons after being the first overall draft pick in 2001, is scheduled to finish out his sentence under home confinement beginning in May.

Vick is under indefinite suspension from the NFL and must be reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell before he can play in the league. The Falcons said they are trying to trade Vick but there has been no interest from other teams.
