TV Bulletin Board (April 21) -- more off-field ventures for T.O.

He's not the Cowboys' problem anymore, so good luck with all that, Buffalo Bills.

Still, who can resist another off-field chapter in the life of wide receiver Terrell Owens, who will be paired with lush model Joanna Krupa when ABC's The Superstars premieres on June 23rd.

Krupa, best known for her "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" campaign on behalf of PETA, will join T.O. at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas for the six-episode series. It's a carryover from a Wide World of Sports gambit in which various sports stars competed against each other to determine the world's greatest athlete.

In ABC's "fresh take," each of the athletes will be joined by a celebrity. Competitions include swimming, biking, running and kayaking. Here are the other pairings:

***Baseball player Jeff Kent and actress Ali Landry
***Basketball player Robert Horry and actress Estella Warren
***Winter Olympics playboy washout Bode Miller and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition design team member Paige Hemmis
***X Games free-skier Kristi Leskinen and Dancing with the Stars regular Maksim Chmerkovskiy
***Basketball player Lisa Leslie and actor Dan Cortese
***Tennis player Jennifer Capriatti and actor David Charvet
***Soccer player Brandi Chastain and singer Julio Iglesias, Jr.

Owens already has another summertime reality series in the works. He'll be playing himself, with cameras in tow, of course, in a still untitled VH1 series. The network says that viewers will discover a "quiet, sensitive, mild-mannered guy" behind "all the braggadocio, emotional histrionics, and sculpted physique that is the outspoken media magnet known to the world as T.O."
