Marion Barry Does Reality TV
Posted on Nov 9, 2009
So Marion Barry ultimately wasn’t able to be Washington, D.C.‘s “mayor for life,” but he may get his own reality TV show. According to the Web site DCist, Barry, who’s now a city councilman, is currently filming a pilot for the show, although his chief of staff couldn’t say which network or production company was behind the project. —KA
Barry Chief of Staff Bernadette Tolson confirmed for DCist that the pilot is in fact happening, though she claimed not to know the names of the producers behind it (seems pretty hard to believe that Barry’s top aide wouldn’t have the details, but given this is the Mayor for Life we’re talking about, we suppose anything’s possible).
