We heard rumors that the team behind the Real Housewives of Atlanta were working on an all-gay version of the franchise. It's really going to happen. This is the best thing to happen to gay people since poppers!
And thinking about the show gives us the same kind of dizziness as Jungle Juice. The show, tentatively titled Kept will air on all-gay, all-day channel Logo. It will focus on fabulous Manhattan party boys who like boys living the high-life. They're hoping that there may be some sugar daddy element involved (hello, what gay boy doesn't want their own Big Poppa?), but they won't know until the show is cast.
The MTV-owned channel hasn't announced the production company yet, but we have to assume that it's going to be True Entertainment, the company that floated some casting emails this summer and who make the Atlanta show for Bravo.
In a couple of weeks there will be an open casting call in New York, and they're hoping to have all the gay-listers ready to start filming by November so that the series can air in 2010. The casting of this show could tear the very fabric of gay New York asunder. There might even be a riot at Beige! And just wait until the show airs. Squabbling about the Fire Island house, bitching about not being invited to the Marc Jacobs after party, twinks stealing sugar daddies from their best friends! It's going to be—what do the gays call it?—fierce.
