Perez Hilton To Star In 'Gay Dads Of New York' Reality Series
Perez Hilton is headed to your TV! Or he will be if a network picks up his new reality series, which will center around Hilton and group of gay dads in New York City.
Hilton's joining forces with Bunim/Murray Productions (The Real World, Keeping Up With the Kardashians) for Gay Dads of New York according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The project, which is currently casting and has yet to be taken out to networks, will follow single father Hilton -- who welcomed his first son in February via surrogate -- and a group of gay dads both single and married as they support each other through the ups and downs of raising children.
Speaking on the show, Hilton tells THR:
"What is your typical American family like? These days, it looks a lot like mine! I am honored and excited to bring to television a show that will be filled with love, humor and drama. What will it not be? Trashy or boring! I am thrilled to have partnered with the leaders and innovators of reality television, Bunim/Murray, to create a program that is compelling and real,” Hilton said. “Up until now people know me more for my opinions than who I am. This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the 'real' Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system. I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to -- hopefully -- love. To new beginnings and this exciting new venture!"
Bunim/Murray chairman Jonathan Murray continues, saying:
“I immediately responded to the Gay Dads of New York concept because my partner and I were part of one of the first gay dads support groups in Los Angeles back in 1998. Whether it's a single dad like Perez, or married gay dads, becoming a gay parent affects your relationships with family and friends, all of which will make fascinating stories.”
