It's kind of like getting laid on Manhunt. If you want to be on Logo's Kept, you have to be hot, fabulous, have a place to live, and have pictures, lots and lots of pictures!
Classic Entertainment Group, True Entertainment (the company that gave NeNe Leakes her big break), and all-gay all-day channel Logo have sent out the casting notice for Kept, their show that is the gay version of a Real Housewives extravaganza, and it is exactly what you would expect. They want hot, young, gay men in the 20s and early 30s who are in a relationship and living the high life. Oh, of course they want "drama, drama, drama." They'll consider you if you're not in a relationship with a guy who makes a ton of money but you really want to be. Well, who doesn't want to be in a relationship with a rich guy so they can quit work and sit around at home all day watching James Franco on General Hospital? I know I sure do.
Now, Marc Jacobs isn't going to be on the show, we just keep using his picture because his boyfriend is exactly what they're looking for. He's handsome, doesn't make as much as his man, lives in multiple houses all over the world, and has all sorts of A-list friends. So, if you think you're as cool as Lorenzo, then send all your photos—of yourself, your job, your friends, your vacation, your second home in the Pines, the last three tricks you had, and that time at the Black Party when you and Devin almost stepped in something totally nasty on the dance floor at the Black Party—to the producers and they will decided if you're good enough to jump in the reality television orgy. See, it's just like Manhunt!
They're looking to "infiltrate" a group of gays (scientifically called a "gaggle"), which means you can drag your closest pals along for the ride. Like Dionne says, that's what friends are for. And they're looking to cast now, so hurry, hurry, hurry, or some other Mary is going to take your place as the Popper King!
