'Boring' Ll Cool J Turns Down Reality Shows
Rapper LL COOL J has turned down continuous offers to star in a reality TV show based on his own life - because he doesn't think his home life is interesting enough. The rap star, real name TODD SMITH, has been offered big money deals to reveal all about his life but he has no plans to follow in the footsteps of JOSEPH SIMMONS and FLAVOR FLAV, who have both scored hits with reality shows. LL Cool J says, "My reality would be boring: watch TV, grab the remote, watch some boxing. I'm pretty laid-back. I work out a lot. I go to church a lot. "I read a lot - everything from THE BIBLE to BEOWULF. I like chess."
