Deion Sanders and his flamboyant sidekick

Add this share

In case you’re as fascinated with Deion Sanders as I am, you can catch the second episode of his reality show tonight (10:30 p.m. on Oxygen). And clearly, there are more of you than I thought.

The new show – “Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love” — features the happenings of the former Brave and Falcon and his wife, Pilar. On tonight’s episode Deion talks sex with his sons.

The show brought in the network’s highest rankings ever for a premiere, attracting some 579,000 viewers last week. Cyd Zeigler, co-founder of, blogged about the show and the flamboyant Gary with Da Tea, a celebrity gossip monger for a Dallas radio show:

The one character who certainly wasn’t bland was Gary With Da Tea, a personality on said radio show. The flamboyant entertainment guru for the radio show was hysterical (snapping in Z formation, if I saw it correctly) and brought life to an otherwise dull show. And Deion seemed like old buds with Gary and his “Glam Squad,” who did a mini-makeover of Deion’s daughter. I’ll watch the show just to catch Gary; and if Gary shows Deion in a gay-friendly light (though, the post-episode promo showed Deion cringing at the thought of a prostate exam), I’m all for it.
