Perez Hilton To Star In Reality Show ‘Gay Dads of New YorkSaturday, December 07, 2013
According to the Hollywood Reporter, 35-year-old popular blogger Perez Hilton (real name Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr.) is starring in a new non-scripted/docuseries show surrounding fatherhood. Titled ‘Gay Dads of New York‘, the project’s cast includes a group of gay dads single and married, who support each other. Obviously, folk will get a glimpse into Hilton, who used a surrogate to welcome his son this February.
Perez Hilton also shared his excitement, noting what viewers can expect of him and the show:
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. 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!
