Thursday, on The Skip Bayless Show, the Fox Sports talking head had his wife Ernestine Sclafani on the show for a little Q&A.

Among the topics discussed were how much she likes LeBron James (“I like LeBron, I’m sorry. I’m going to admit.”) and the fact that there is a movie in development based on being married to the host of Undisputed.

That’s right. Skip Bayless is getting a movie made about him.

The film will be based on a 2019 written by Bayless’ wife Ernestine titled Balls: How to keep your relationship alive when you live with a sports-obsessed guy.

The book is “a double entendre title because it’s about ball games and also about testosterone which spills all over our household,” Skip informed his viewing and listening audience in case there was a one in a million chance they didn’t figure it out on their own.

Literally about an hour later, Ernestine dropped the bombshell news.

“By the way, from our book, it’s going to be a movie of the week at some point,” Ernestine revealed. “Right? I told you they’re making it a movie of the week on GAC.”

GAC Family used to be a channel called Great American Country, for the unfamiliar.

“Is that happening?” Skip then asked Ernestine, to which she replied, “It’s going to be happening, it’s going to be happening. Fingers crossed, but that’s what the word is right now … So hopefully, everybody’s got to cross their fingers, right now it’s in legal.”

Oh, our fingers are most definitely crossed that this movie comes to fruition.
