Watercooler: The Fabulous Beekman Boys Live Up to Their Name
Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge
Oh my god, how fun is this show?! You could even say it's Fabulous! Chronicling the efforts of partners Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge as they attempt to square their urbanista attitudes with a Green Acres-ish existence on an upstate New York farm, this feisty new docu-series (Wednesdays, 9/8c, Planet Green) is the cutest thing since that hat-wearing kitten on YouTube...and the gayest show not on Bravo. But this is no Simple Life Goes 'Mo. The guys aren't idiots — former drag queen Kilmer-Purcell is a best-selling author and ad exec, Ridge is a former consultant to Martha Stewart's empire — and there's nary a "we're just doing this for the cameras" vibe. In fact, Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge have been running Beekman Estate since 2007 and distribute a boutique line of organic goods that needs to go national. (We really want some of that goat's milk soap, OK?) Best yet, their open affection with one another and devotion to their fellow local farmers feels as natural as their products. If only all reality TV couples were so healthy and good for you, huh?
