Barkley to have televised colonoscopy.
TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley has seemingly been in the news all summer.
In May, the former NBA star was involved in a gambling debt controversy involving the Wynn Casino, and recently, he's been in the news for a reality show on The Golf Channel that will attempt to fix his notoriously bad golf swing.
Now, Barkley is gaining more exposure than ever before.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Barkley will apparently have a televised colonoscopy as part of the upcoming Stand Up to Cancer event that will be simulcast on CBS, NBC and ABC.
Barkley, who will undergo the procedure on Friday, was reportedly "happy to participate in promoting awareness for colonoscopies."
