I Married a Baller
“I Married A Baller” was a groundbreaking new reality show that took audiences behind the scenes into the excitingly engaging personal lives of celebrity athletes and their families. Football great and retired Tennessee Titan Eddie George and his celebrity wife, singer Taj, known for her multi-platinum R&B group SWV, opened up their homes and their lives to give the world an intimate glimpse of how erratic and entertaining life really can be when you are married to a baller.
For Taj George, marrying her husband Eddie meant taking on more than just his name. The union also signified sharing in many of his previous obligations and future ambitions. Upon their marriage, Taj took the helm of Eddie’s non-profit organization, Visions with Infinite Possibilities (VIP) and decided to take the vision down a different road – literally. “I Married A Baller” featured Taj as she hit the road and ventured across the nation with sharing her own story of perseverance, survival, and success despite a history of domestic abuse and violence.
As exciting as a three-week tour may sound, Taj had more than just a few things to juggle on her already full plate. With the recent reunion of her world-renowned R&B group Sisters with Voices, Taj also had to work on SWV recordings, rehearsals and performances – all from her tour bus home base. While on the road, Taj had to cope with continuing her cosmetology classes and helping Eddie prepare for his new job in LA as a Fox sports anchor – a feat that also required them to look for a potential new LA residence, in spite of Taj’s extreme objections.
“I Married A Baller” continues to be a hit with all audiences, from sports aficionados, to music fans, and anyone else who appreciates pop and hip hop culture. Although the show didn’t have a second season it was one of the highest rated shows on TV One during it’s run. Armed with music, a message, and a whole lot of commotion, Taj George showed the world how life REALLY changes when you marry a baller.
Stay tuned, and get ready to hop on the bus again for the ride of a lifetime as Eddie and Taj prepares to release their first book “Grow A Deeper, Better Love (Abingdon Press) that will be sure to impact anyone who reads it.
