Kiana Kim Photos: Pictures Of Pete Rose's Fiancee And Upcoming TLC Reality Show Star [PHOTOS]
Model Kiana Kim is set to star in a TLC reality show with her famous fiancée, baseball's controversial hit king Pete Rose.
"Pete Rose and the Kiana Kim Family Project" is in production, according to Entertainment Weekly, and TLC cameras will document the couple's journey into marriage amid a less-than-ideal family situation.
Rose, 71, is based in Las Vegas, where he signs baseball memorabilia, and Kiana Kim, who is in her 30s, is in Los Angeles, where she takes care of her two children, Entertainment Weekly reported.
"She's got younger kids and I've got [four adult] kids, and we go through the same things everybody else does: taking the braces off, making sure they get their education and they go to basketball practice or acting class," Rose told the magazine.
Of the show, the former Cincinnati Reds and Philadelphia Phillies star said, "It's not going to be classless - like it seems like a lot of reality shows aren't really reality, but our reality show is going to be funny, entertaining and real."
Kiana Kim said the family dynamics (she's from South Korea and about 40 years younger than Rose) will make for some interesting reality television.
"We're not a traditional family," Kim said. "We are a total modern-day family, mixing the cultures, the ages, the different backgrounds together. I didn't even know who Pete Rose was when I first met him. It's kind of a crazy story, but at the core of every family is love and it's what TLC wants to show. We're just a normal family with 4,200 hits."
Rose is arguably baseball's most controversial figure after he was banned from the sport for life in 1989 after strong allegations surfaced in Sports Illustrated that he bet on baseball while he was a player-manager with the Reds.
The so-called Dowd report found that Rose wagered on baseball but not against his own team. Rose adamantly denied the claims until he copped to the allegations in his 2004 autobiography, "My Prison Without Bars."
Rose first publicly announced his relationship with Kiana Kim in 2009, when the model posed for Playboy.
According to her bio on her website, Kim runs a hair salon in California and works out with the trainer who got Taylor Lautner in shape for the "Twilight" films.
