    Default Ron Artest- Welcome to Reality.. Television

    Ron Artest -- Welcome to Reality ... Television
    Ron Artest is joining teammate Lamar Odom in the world of reality television -- but unlike "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" ... this show actually has a positive social message.



    Artest -- who is no stranger to getting second chances -- is helping mentor a group of parolees as part of a show called, "Last Second Shot." Ron Ron will work with a team of mental health experts and life coaches to help the parolees take control of their lives.

    We're told the production company, 44 Blue Productions, hasn't pitched the show to any networks yet ... but they're "very high on it."

    I can't stand Ron Ron but did the Pacers really get him the help he needed? Serious question.

    I didn't live here until after he left the Pacers.

    I could see the Pacers not taking it seriously.

    Don't have the sources at my fingertips, but they took it very seriously. In one of his later flip out cases there was actual mention of him deciding not to take his meds.

    There were mentions - as much as could be based on privacy rules - of having him see counselors and other efforts. These were brought out whenever his stability was questioned.
