Mrs. Doubtfire meets reality TV with TBS’ forthcoming He’s a Lady. Here’s the premise: “11 macho men temporarily leave behind their wives and girlfriends for a chance to win a quarter of $1 million dollars. The guys think they’re going to be on a show called All American Man, competing in grueling physical challenges. But the catch is, the guys will actually be transformed and given the chance to see what life is like as a lady, with one man winning a huge cash prize in the end.” They’ll be judged during a beauty pageant by a panel of celebrities (cough, cough): Morgan Fairchild, John Salley, and Debbie Matenopoulos. They “will live in ‘The Doll House,’ a beautifully decorated dwelling designed to help them get in touch with their feminine sides,” and will compete in competitions such as “planning a real wedding and then being asked to serve as the bridesmaids,” according to a TBS release. A TBS spokesperson told 365Gay.com that the series is “like Tootsie; It’s meant to entertain. We’re not trying to hurt anyone, but show how gender roles in our society work.” The show debuts Oct. 12 and will air on Tuesdays.
