Serena Williams can't get any love for her reality show idea. The New York Daily News reports Williams' program about her fixation with decorating and caring for nails was so bad, Lifetime cable network lost interest after feeling it wasn't up to snuff.
A pilot which will never be broadcast showed Serena giving former talk show host Oprah Winfrey a pedicure.
Lifetime decision makers didn't think viewers would believe Williams was being "authentic."
Serena really is serious about her love of nails, though. She studied professional nail care.
Oprah Winfrey's OWN cable channel also wants nothing to do with the Serena show.
Williams shouldn't be too bummed out about her reality TV flop, since she has an estimated net worth of $85 million. She's earned the most prize money of any female athlete in history, with well over $30 million dollars in prizes.
With 27 Grand Slam titles in her career, Serena is ranked ninth on the all-time list: 13 in singles, 12 in women's doubles, and 2 in mixed doubles. Williams also has won a pair of Olympic gold medals in women's doubles.
