When you get sick of watching pro athletes on reality shows, blame Lamar Odom.

"Khloe & Lamar" executive producer Jeff Jenkins thinks reality TV is about to see a big increase in jocks getting shows.

Jenkins tells Variety, Odom's show with wife Khloe Kardashian is "only the beginning," of a trend coming to Hollywood. He claims athletes shouldn't fear being "thrown under the bus" on a reality show, because the genre works hard to give a balanced story.

Ron Artest, soon to be known as "Meta World Peace," is following in the footsteps of his Lakers teammate with a soon to be launched reality show.

Shawn Marion of the world champion Mavericks has also started work on a reality show about his life and the ladies in it.

Marion's teammate Jason Terry is working on his own show, about his life including his crazy mom and "pimp dad."

Variety points out six of the 12 winners on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" have been athletes.

Wasserman Media Group chairman Casey Wasserman, playing devil's advocate, disagrees with Jenkins, saying pro athletes are more likely to expand their brand via "social media and e-commerce."
