|Emmitt and Pat Smith on the red carpet of the NFL Honors in San Francisco (February 6, 2016)|
The photo above accurately illustrates how most of the world views Pat Smith. As a beautiful piece of arm candy belonging to NFL legend and Dancing With The Stars champion, Emmitt Smith. But Pat Smith is so much more than just a pretty face and on March 26 at 9:00PM (CST) Oprah's OWN network will introduce her to the world in "Mrs. & Mr. Smith". The hour-long show will air as special and be treated like a pilot episode. The episode will follow Pat as she wrangles 5 kids, a superstar husband and, like every woman in America, struggles to not lose herself in the process. We'll learn about Pat's commitment to faith and philanthropy and see how she's making a difference in the world through her charities, Treasure You and Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities. If viewers tune in with strong numbers, additional episodes will be considered. You have to be pretty interesting to get Oprah's attention and behind that gorgeous smile is one helluva story.
