THE MICHAEL VICK PROJECT: NUH-UH!

Well, it had to happen...actually both things had to happen.

First off, you had to figure that sooner or later gossip mogul Perez Hilton would find his way to T.A.H. After all, T.A.H. Pop Culture Editor Young A.T. is a big fan and loyal follower of the internet wag.

Secondly, you had to figure that if Anna Nicole Smith and Danny Bonaduce had reality T.V. shows, why not Michael Vick?

...and just like that, we roll the two into one.

Young A.T. hippped us to this in an email appropriately titled: "Nuh-uh!"

According to PerezHilton.com, "BET is giving dog-abuser Michael Vick his own reality show, as of right now called The Michael Vick Project.

The show is going to revolve around (the former Hokie's) comeback to the NFL as a new team member on the Philadelphia Eagles and his tarnished public image as a result of his arrest for the dog fighting ring in 2007.

Vick says: "I just want people to really get to know me as an individual. What I want to do is change the perception of me. I am a human being. I've made some mistakes in the past, and I wish it had never happened. But it's not about how you fall, but about how you pick yourself up."

PETA spokesman Dan Shannon begged to differ saying that "people who abuse animals don't deserve to be rewarded. They shouldn't be given multimillion-dollar contracts…or given the privilege of being a role model."

PETA might spew a whole lotta crazy sometimes, but we're with them 100% on this one!*"

So there you have it...
