Real Housewives of Atlanta producers looking for “young, fabulous gay men” for new series

The production company behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta (there are different producers for each city’s version) are searching for gay men in New York for a series that sounds a lot like it could be a gay version of The Real Housewives. No network is mentioned, though.

Beth Bigler of True Entertainment sent an e.mail reproduced by Gawker that said,

“I’m looking for the hottest young, fabulous gay men NYC has to offer for an upcoming docu-series. These boys need to be living the good life, keeping up with all the hottest shopping, restaurants, and clubs, and preferably have lots of drama keeping them busy at all hours of the day…and night. I’d love for them to be in a relationship, and we’re looking for diversity in those relationships – especially younger/older dynamics.”
