Gilles Marini has a great ratings stunt in mind for Michael Vick’s upcoming BET reality show.
“They should put him in a cage with an ultimate fighter and see what happens,” the Sex And The City stud and Dancing With The Stars alum exclusively told RadarOnline.com at the 6th Annual Hollywood Style Awards on Sunday night. “Maybe we’ll feel the way he feels.”
The show, tentatively titled The Michael Vick Project, will follow the scrambling QB on-and-off the football field, as he attempts to recreate the public image that was shattered by his 2007 dog fighting arrest.
“How weak it is to be cruel to animals,” Marini said. “I might not watch it, sorry.”
Vick, currently a backup for the Philadelphia Eagles, said in a recent interview he views the show as a chance to inspire others.
“I just want people to really get to know me as an individual,” he told the Los Angeles Times in an interview about the program. “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.”
