DISHING DIVA! How ex-Chicago Bears’ Ray Austin Got on 100 Days of Summer (Don’t Ask His Best Friend About It!)By Dishing Diva | January 7, 2014 | Dish!, Entertainment
Former Chicago Bears football star Ray Austin is probably still saying “sorry, bro” to one of his besties.
Ray (pictured second from left) stars in 100 Days of Summer, which premieres on Bravo tonight. He reveals only to Dishing Diva how he snagged a spot on the series. “A friend of mine heard about the show. He came to me with it and said, ‘I think you should come with me and see what you think about it.'” Ray and bro both did the audition. “I told them about myself and my past and present.”
Obviously Ray did a good job, as he snagged a spot in the new docu-series, which chronicles a group of go-getters getting theirs during Chicago’s short summer season. But his friend, “unfortunately, he did not make it,” Ray shares. Ouch!
We’re happy to report he and Ray are still friends. “It’s a little joke we have going on,” Ray chuckles.
100 Days of Summer premieres Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 10 p.m. on Bravo.
