Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron took some criticism when news surfaced that he and his fiancee, Katherine Webb, are filming a reality show. It didn’t take long for McCarron to say that news was misconstrued.
McCarron went on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to say that his focus is only on football, and that the reality show is his future wife’s project, not his own.
Webb is a former Miss Alabama who became famous when Brent Musburger slobbered all over the announcer’s booth while gushing about her beauty during last year’s BCS National Championship game. She has parlayed that fame into appearances on shows like Inside Edition and the celebrity diving competition Splash.
But while reality TV may be the logical next step in Webb’s career, NFL teams will want McCarron to focus on nothing but football. His tweet on Wednesday was an attempt to make sure NFL teams realize that he wants to be a quarterback, not a TV star.
