MTV has The Hills. Now Logo will have Kept. The gay “real Real Housewives” reality show that’s been rumored about is a go for the network, and its working title suggests good looking Manhattanites starring on the program will require some financial finessing from some sugar daddies. Apparently this is what the post-Brian Graden network is looking like.
It’s too soon to surmise what the show will actually end up looking like; the casting call hasn’t even gone out yet. But you should expect a gaggle of pretty nobodies one-upping each other in skinny jeans, invite-only events, Fire Island shares, and sex partners. Throw in some 40-year-old Wall Street finance type who bankrolls his twentysomething boyfriend’s lifestyle, and we’ve got magic, people.
Because this is the version of gay America that viewers want to see, the same way haggling over a wretched Justin Bobby or Brody Jenner once counted as entertainment.
