Just when we thought reality television couldn’t sink any lower, TLC, the network responsible for such small screen gems as 19 Kids And Counting, Sarah Palin’s Alaska, and The Man With The 132-Pound Scrotum, has announced My Husband’s Not Gay, a television special about gay Mormon men who have chosen to marry women.
That’s right, gay Mormon men who have chosen to marry women.
The special will follow couples three couples living in Salt Lake City — Curtis and Tera, Jeff and Tanya, and Pret and Megan, as well as a 35-year-old bachelor and missionary named Tom–as they navigate through the struggles of being in sham, er, unique marriages.
Here are some highlights from the trailer:
- “With our faith in God we believe we believe we can overcome anything!”
- “I like to say I’ve chosen an alternative to an alternative lifestyle.”
- “I’m interested in men I’m just not interested in men.”
- “I get a little defensive when somebody calls my husband gay.”
