AJ McCarron, Katherine Webb land reality show related to upcoming nuptials

In case you’re the kind of person that does not stay apprised of the romantic developments of quarterbacks projected to be selected in the later rounds of the NFL Draft and the women who love them, former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron and Katherine Webb became engaged on March 29.

Webb announced the engagement on Instagram, showing off the five-carat ring adorned with pink diamonds from South Africa.

Now reports are surfacing that the proposal, the preparations for the wedding and perhaps even the ceremony itself all will be part of a reality show. Because, you know, of course.

“They’ve already started filming during the proposal,” said Katherine’s sister, Laurie Webb (via “From what I understood, it came from someone else. I don’t think they were trying to get into a reality show, I think they just had the opportunity and decided to take it.”

Makes sense. Odds are publicists, representatives, what have you were the brains behind the concept of a reality show. It’s only that it was up to Webb and McCarron to make the decision against bastardizing their wedding.

The Auburn Plainsman has the additional details and quotes from Leslie Webb, Katherine’s mother.

The family has already started looking at wedding venues and dresses, according to Leslie Webb.

“We just had to get into wedding mode super quick,” Leslie said. “She’s wanting to keep it in Alabama, but because it’s such a short time frame, that might not be an option.”

Laurie said that the film crew won’t be there every day, but they will be filming Katherine and McCarron on certain days when something interesting is going on, along with members of the wedding party, family and some friends.

They also don’t know how many episodes they will have yet.

“They think it’s a great opportunity,” Laurie said. “They can also have a documentation on, you know, special times during their life, which will be kind of cool.”

Sounds like Must-See TV, right? Although simply watching Webb’s hyper-sexualized Hardee’s commercial on a continuous loop may be more entertaining.
