Current & Former Cast Members Call Out MTV’s Upcoming Reality Show

To absolutely no one’s surprise, MTV’s newest upcoming reality series The Real Friends of WeHo is already stirring up drama, and the first episode hasn’t even aired yet. 

Marketing itself as an “unfiltered and honest look” at a select group of LGBTQ+ celebrity and entrepreneur friends living, loving, and pursuing their passions in the West Hollywood community, the show will follow the lives of celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, choreographer and singer Todrick Hall, actor Curtis Hamilton, Buttah Skincare CEO Dorion Renaud, TV host and business owner Jaymes Vaughan, and digital entrepreneur Joey Zauzig.

However, some people, including Renaud, are labeling it as “fake.”

Not long after the official trailer dropped last week, Renaud took to Instagram Stories to dismiss the entire premise of the show. He says the cast are “fake friends” and that he doesn’t even live in West Hollywood, but in the Valley instead.

He also took to Twitter to declare that he doesn’t know his cast members.

Eating Out and Naked Boys Singing! star Chris Salvatore also chimed in on Twitter and alleged that he was fired from The Real Friends of WeHo after three of its cast members refused to film with him for having an OnlyFans account. 

After some pushback, Salvatore doubled down on his stance and tweeted, “Literally never worked with more awful people,” as well as, “But I will leave you with this. The one that called me to apologize… err I mean further criticize and gaslight also had sent me his nudes a few years back.”

The Real Friends of WeHo is set to premiere on Friday, January 20 at 9:00 pm ET/PT following RuPaul’s Drag Race.

  1. I mean most of the real housewives aren’t friends in real life. I don’t see the issue. I like that they’re trying to have a gay version. Straights don’t have to have everything 🙂 Just for me personally I can’t stand Toddrick and don’t know many who like him.

  2. Here’s another one who doesn’t live in WeHo: Jaymes’ primary home in Palm Springs, 100 miles away. He’s always posting from there.
