Jillian Barberie and Grant Reynolds
Look out housewives, Real and Desperate alike — the boys are back in town.
Fox Reality Channel has ordered nine hour-long episodes of Househusbands of Hollywood, a gender-reversing take on the trophy-spouse genre, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The show will follow several stay-at-home spouses of successful L.A. women.
Among the Househusbands to be featured are former A Different World's Darryl M. Bell, the husband of Tempestt Bledsoe (The Cosby Show), former Los Angeles Dodger Billy Ashley and Grant Reynolds, husband of Jillian Barberie.
"We believe Househusbands could be a breakthrough for us," said Bob Boden, Fox Reality's senior vice president of programming. "It's an amusing, poignant and fascinating look at a world that has not been covered yet in reality. It's obviously an outgrowth of a trend that's been working in reality about docusoaps, with interesting characters with unique relationships."
The series is set to debut in August. Will you be tuning in?
