Introducing the Cast of the 'Gay Housewives of New York'

This sounds like a hotter mess than all The Real Housewives shows put together, and, well, since I do love a good train wreck, I probably won't be able to avert my eyes.
Will you?

from Gawker:

We got wind of the cast of Logo's new "gay housewives" show. And it's filled with just the fame-hungry, attractive, horrible people you could have imagined. They're all models! This is going to be a fantastic mess.
The show, which was initially called Kept, is now tentatively being called The A List and is scheduled to air on Logo sometime this fall after taping in NYC this summer. Just as we told you—and despite his denial at first—D-lister and former reality show contestant Reichen Lehmkuhl has signed up to be a part of the cast along with his boyfriend. That means of the six people cast on the show, five of them work as models, have worked as models, or claim to work as models. Yay, abs and shallowness! Let's meet our gaggle of famewhores, shall we?

Reichen Lehmkuhl
Occupation: Professional arm candy

Stats: The former The Amazing Race winner has left his Air Force past behind and now makes his living as a professional attractive gay with his own beefcake calendars, soft-core television roles, and jewelry line. He wrote a book too. He really wants to be famous. Also, he thinks we're imbeciles and can't spell.

Claim to Fame: Was the boyfriend that helped Lance Bass come out of the closet.

Housewife Equivalent: Gretchen Rossi The Real Housewives Of The OC bimbo.

Rodiney Santiago
Occupation: Model

Stats: This Brazilian didn't make it in Miami or Los Angeles so now he and his boyfriend Reichen are moving to New York to take the world by storm.

Claim to Fame: He's dating Reichen.

Housewife Equivalent: Simon van Kempen, The Real Housewives of New York pseudo-straight husband.

Mike Ruiz
Occupation: Photographer

Stats: A LA-based muscle daddy, Ruiz is like a real actual photographer who has talent and makes a living shooting for Interview and Vanity Fair. He's appeared on shows like America's Next Top Model and RuPaul's Drag Race, so it's obvious he wants to be as famous as the people he shoots.

Claim to Fame: Has photographed Tyra Banks, Dolly Parton, Lindsay Lohan, Kathy Griffin, and a bunch of other celebrities.

Housewife Equivalent: Vicki Gunvalson, The Real Housewives Of The OC head diva bitch.

Austin A
Occupation: Supposedly a model, but we're not quite sure.

Stats: After doing mysterious work in Los Angeles and London he is returning to New York to create a whole lot of drama on TV.

Claim to Fame: Dated Marc Jacobs for a hot minute.

Housewife Equivalent: Danielle Staub, The Real Housewives Of New Jersey ex-con prostitute drug mule.

Derek Lloyd Saathoff
Occupation: A former model turned modeling agent.

Stats: Derek is a golddigger who already lives in a really nice apartment in Chelsea. He likes to party, is out all the time, and the gay gossips about town are already talking about him being on the show. He should be a big hit.

Claim to Fame: Look at her! What do you think?

Housewife Equivalent: Jill Zarin. The Real Housewives Of New York media whore.

Ryan Nickulas
Occupation: Hair salon owner

Stats: We couldn't find much about Ryan, so the jury is still out. What we do know is that he and his partner are looking to adopt. Aw, cute little gaybies on TV!

Claim to Fame: He once did Madonna's hair. (OK, I made that up.)

Housewife Equivalent: Bethenny Frankel, Real Housewives Of New York snark patrol.

This show is a waste on space

Are you making this up? Is this really a TV show?

Stupid. I certainly will NOT be watching these muscle heads compete for Queen of the Vanities 2010. Shallow is as shallow does.

Biki said...

Wow! Could we be more desperate for attention than the people on any of these shows? Whats up with wanting to be famous, without doing something to warrant the fame? Thank you for the heads up, now when the show hits the air, I'll know to advert my eyes.

I will not watch. I will, however, check out this and other sites regularly for snarky witticisms and all-out bitchiness about these whores.

Be interesting to see how this does.

I can't pass a good train wreck without stopping either. I'll do what I can to afford my full cable package again in the fall.
