Early on Monday we mentioned a report in the New York Daily News about Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz trying to lock down a deal for a reality television show while simultaneously trying to lock down a long-term contract with the Giants.
The report quoted Cruz talking about his plans, which he said were for a show “unique to me” while bearing no resemblance to shows featuring the Kardashians. Now, though, Cruz has taken to Twitter to deny any involvement with a reality show.
“This is truly God testing me for something much bigger. Never EVER doing a reality show. Nor am I in talks for one.
#NYmediaboredom,” Cruz wrote.
It’s a bit confusing, since Cruz was quoted extensively in the initial reports about weighing offers for a television show. Cruz never says he’s trying to land a reality show, however.
“I definitely want it to be my show,” Cruz said in the Daily News. “My own thing, something that I can contribute to and something I like to do, I can be comfortable with, and an easy show, something people like to watch and that people can be in tune with on a daily basis.”
Perhaps Cruz feels former Giant Michael Strahan was onto something when he starred in the sitcom Brothers, although viewers didn’t have much love for a show that was cancelled after 13 low-rated episodes in 2009. Whatever the show turns out to be, the most important thing to the Giants and their fans will be that Cruz is appearing on screens in the fall in his familiar role as a target for Eli Manning.
