Catty, Bitchy Gay Queens May Finally Land Their Own Housewives Spin-Off


It’s not surprising to hear about a casting call for a gay version of The Real Housewives. What is surprising, then, is that it took four incarnations of straight lady versions for anyone to realize “Hey, this is prrrrr-fect for them homosexuals!”

A casting call is out to New York City A-gays (or, more likely, C-gays who aspire to be A) from True Entertainment, which Gawker relays helped cast the Atlanta housewives. In stereotypical fashion, it reads:

I’m looking for the hottest young, fabulous gay men NYC has to offer for an upcoming docu-series. These boys need to be living the good life, keeping up with all the hottest shopping, restaurants, and clubs, and preferably have lots of drama keeping them busy at all hours of the day…and night. I’d love for them to be in a relationship, and we’re looking for diversity in those relationships – especially younger/older dynamics.

Do any of your friends fit this bill? We all know SOMEONE who needs to have their own TV show, right?

Yes, lots of drama! But also: Please don’t be sexualized. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned from Bravo’s programming, particularly its Housewives brand, it’s that gays aren’t allowed to be in love, show affection, and especially not have sex. But drag queens, apparently, can.

    a real housewives spin-off will set us back a hundred years. they pick the absolute dregs of humanity for those shows. disgusting, narcissistic, nouveaux riches.

  • galefan2004

    Whoever runs Bravo should be shot in the head. I never watched any of the housewives shows nor do I ever care to because people spending more on a hat then some people make in a year just doesn’t appeal to me. However, when you throw gay into the mix it gets even worse. To top this all of, this show will probably be released about the same time as House Husbands of Hollywood and end up making the gays look bad. Bravo has always managed to make the gays look bad. This is just Queer Eye for the Straight Guy 2.0 and we all know how much that show cast gays in a “positive” light.

    Oh God no. If they pick gays the way they’ve picked those housewives do we all have the option of going back in the closet to not be associated with them?

  • galefan2004

    @Cam: Even in the closet you are still gay, and I’m willing to bet your closet door shattered into a million pieces anyways. However, they will pick the most detestable gay men they can find and America will think all gay men behave that way because after all its on television right.

  • galefan2004

    I personally would rather see an all gay version of Big Brother or The “Real” World, or maybe we could get an all new gay reality show based on the gay games or gay olympics.

  • Ohomo

    Give me a break. It will get huge ratings. It will be a train wreck. It will be classic American guilty pleasure TV, and Blake and Crystal will come over to my house to watch it.

    I must admit that I adore Dwight the gay guy on Real Housewives of Atlanta and have thought he should have his own show.

    I just wonder why they call this show “Real Housewives…” since I don’t think anyone on any of these shows has been a housewife.

  • Nunya Bizness

    Interesting… I’m sensing a bit of “Cultural Cringe” from The Gays on this board regarding all of the potential Gay Minstrelsy that may appear in that show…

    *diabolical laughter*

    I personally LURVE (read: beyond love… tickled purple) the idea!! And don’t worry — for us Black Folk — the fuckery present on The Real Housewives of Atlanta was so over-the-top that most of us couldn’t even be embarrassed. It didn’t represent us (or anyone else remotely human and living a real life).

    All of my black friends watched it like the amusingly tragic trainwreck that it was. Couldn’t even identify with (in much the same way I’m sure Italian housewives in New Jersey cringed and watched through their fingers at all of the Mafia references indicated in The Real Housewives of New Jersey).


    BTW: Dwight is an embarrassment to the human race….

    @Nunya Bizness:

    I think you’re right in a way, it depends on how over the top this show is. But…I mean I know a few “catty bitchy gay queens” that are…well over the top, so can you imagine how over the top this would have to be…

    Yeah, this a cringe moment, kinda like when you would see Jack on “Will and Grace.” Cringed everytime he walked on the set.

  • SouLKid

    i would watch it.And if at all they go ahead with the idea they better go ALL THE WAY with the drama.i’m sure it won’t be difficult finding OVER THE-over the top gays in NYC.

  • Qjersey

    The Real Kept Boys of NYC

  • Cam

    They already have that show “Miami Social” I don’t see how they could pick any more destestible gays than that….unless they get some homless Meth addicts who just run around stabbing people.

  • Gus

    I always thought all the cast members of any ‘Housewives of’ acted like drag queens. Now they want the real thing?

  • Tommy

    The Housewives shows were entertaining when they first started. I loved OC and NYC. But NJ and Atlanta are shameful. In the earlier shows, they had fights sometimes, but they weren’t as nasty and physically violent as they have become. Also, they chose women with some kind of intelligence and who could laugh at themselves. On the later ones, they chose the most repulsive people, who only do three things, shop and pull each other’s hair out and turn over tables.
    I can just imagine what the male version will be. A bunch of catty gossipy bitchy queens. Hardly a fair representation of the gay community.
