It wasn't that long ago the entire world oohed and aahed over the broadcast of William and Kate's royal wedding. So even if it's just the Alabama equivalent, it's only fitting that AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb's wedding will be televised as well.
Not televised live, mind you, but Webb's family members confirmed to the Auburn student newspaper The Plainsman Wednesday that the wedding and its preparations will be filmed for a forthcoming reality TV program. Producers have yet to reach an agreement with any network, but camera crews were already on hand for their March engagement.
I think it's funny how people think I am doing a tv show. I play football that's it! What my future wife does is her business #worryaboutyou— AJ McCarron (@10AJMcCarron) April 9, 2014
"To me, I still have a hard time viewing my daughter as being some type of celebrity,” Webb's father Alan Webb told the paper. "She's just still my daughter, but having it televised, it probably would work well for the fact that both she and AJ are known to a lot of people."
Webb's mother, Leslie Webb, said Katherine was first approached by networks after her (ahem) much-discussed apperance on camera during the 2013 BCS Championship Game, but wasn't interested until much more recently.
"I don't think they were trying to get into a reality show," Webb's sister Laurie Webb said. "I think they just had the opportunity and decided to take it."
The wedding is set for July 11. As for when the program (or series?) airs (if at all?), well, stay tuned. The state of Alabama certainly will.
