Is it really this hard to find gays in New York who want to be on television? While Logo continues to try to cast party-friendly homos for its show Kept, it’s offered an olive branch: Renaming the show to the bland (and Bravo) sounding The Gay Socialites of New York and focusing not on sugar daddies and their playthings, but on NYC gays with overactive social lives. That’s a pretty wide net, innit?
Apparently not. Producers, who already plan to begin shooting in May, are still looking to fill two roles: The gay power couple, and the hot successful (and single) gym bunny. With what we can only imagine being their first choice (Marc and Lorenzo) laughing in their faces, and their second choice (Anderson and Benjamin) not returning phone calls, we imagine the troubling scenario where Paper‘s Peter Davis and whoever he’s finagling at the moment finds a place in the cast.
More worrisome, though, is that if this show is a hit, they’re going to franchise it for the West Coast. And then South Beach!
