Media personality Perez Hilton is preparing a reality TV show called Gay Dads of New York.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hilton “will document his adventures in fatherhood with” the new reality TV series. Hilton welcomed little Mario Armando Lavandeira III into the world (via a surrogate) in February.
THR reports that Hilton is developing the TV project with Bunim/Murray Productions and OMG Productions. Bunim/Murray Productions are creators of The Real World and Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Hilton is no stranger to reality TV. The 35-year-old celebrity blogger worked on MTV’s Paris Hilton’s My New BFF, VH1′s What Perez Says and ITV’s Perez Hilton Super Fan.
The TV project, which is currently casting and has not been picked up by a network yet, will follow Hilton and a group of gay men “both single and married as they support each other through the ups and downs of raising children” without nurturing women.
“What is your typical American family like? These days, it looks a lot like mine!,” says Hilton. “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!”
Hilton adds: “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!”
