PEREZ HILTON TO STAR IN “GAY DADS OF NEW YORK” REALITY SERIES

PRODUCED BY BUNIM/MURRAY PRODUCTIONS

LOS ANGELES – December 4, 2013 – One of Hollywood’s most colorful personalities is lifting the curtain on gay fatherhood. Gossip guru and media mogul Perez Hilton today announced he’s partnering with Bunim/Murray Productions, producers of The Real World, Project Runway and Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and OMG Productions to develop Gay Dads of New York. Set in New York City, the reality docu-series will follow Hilton, who recently became a single father, and a group of gay dads, single and married, as they support each other through the ups and downs of raising children.

“What is your typical American family like? These days, it looks a lot like mine! I am honored and excited to bring to television a show that will be filled with love, humor and drama. What will it not be? Trashy or boring! I am thrilled to have partnered with the leaders and innovators of reality television, Bunim/Murray, to create a program that is compelling and real,” said Hilton. “Up until now people know me more for my opinions than who I am. This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the 'real' Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system. I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to - hopefully - love. To new beginnings and this exciting new venture!"

“I immediately responded to the ‘Gay Dads of New York’ concept because my partner and I were part of one of the first gay dads support groups in Los Angeles back in 1998,” said Jonathan Murray, Chairman of Bunim/Murray Productions. "Whether it's a single dad like Perez, or married gay dads, becoming a gay parent affects your relationships with family and friends, all of which will make fascinating stories.”

“I brought the project to Bunim/Murray because of their brilliant storytelling, unbelievable track record in reality television, and what I consider the best eye for casting shows in the business,” said Suzy Unger, OMG Productions. “I have worked with Jon and his team for many years, and they are not only pioneers in the reality space, but they remain groundbreaking producers. We are proud to be working with them.”

Bunim/Murray Productions is currently casting the series, looking for gay dads in the New York City area who want to be in a support group with Hilton. More information can be found at: http://www.bmpcasting.com:16080/casting/gdc/

The series will be executive produced by Bunim/Murray Productions and OMG Productions. Suzy Unger at OMG Productions; Steven Grossman and Mario Lavandeira (Perez Hilton); and Bunim/Murray’s Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein and Scott Freeman will serve as Executive Producers.

    No. no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no NO.

    I wouldn't watch the show to start with (not into the whole Real housewives-type thing) but now that I know you're on it? I will NEVER watch it.

    You humour reality tv stars constantly. We don't need to have on our TVs. We don't need to see your life. and most of all, WHY WOULD YOU PUT YOUR KID THROUGH THIS?!!!!

    I know you secretly want to be a Kardashian, look how ridiculed they are?
    This will be how your child is treated.

    Using that poor kid as a means to more publicity for yourself, surprise, surprise. You're disgusting.

    So by "game changing" you mean you are doing a "unscripted" aka scripted "reality" show. A format that has been beaten to death over and over again by famewhores. What game did you exactly change? Who on earth is going to watch your forced friendships with other gay dads who will be paid to hang out with you and create fake drama?

    Nice Try Mario / Perez.

    The key here is "Development", that means it is a development deal. Not a TV show. If the development works out then it has to be shopped around and maybe picked up by a network.

    You have announced so many development deals before. They are nothing special. Doesn't even mean you will do any shooting.

    What a load of BS. There are thousands of "Development" deals going around.

    And Duh, you write the announcement.

    What a joke announcement.

    Your kid's legacy is bad enough as it is, you are just going to make it worse. Just raise him to be normal would you?

    I haven't seriously watched a reality show since…… Breaking Bonaduce. I'm behind the reality times. I am curious about gay parenting though. What I am really curious about is "who will raise more college grads per head? Hetero couples of america or gay couples of america? Gay dads or Gay moms?". I have a theory it will be gay couples (and specifically gay dads) but no way to prove my theory yet. Not enough data. Life is one big competition to me.

    So that's why you bought that little accessory (child), in order to further your reality tv aspirations. You are the WORST most narcissistic, trite, sad man. And now to subject your son to the glare of a reality series will ensure that he grows up more fucked up than it was clear he would be from the beginning. You are appalling. Also, I'm all for gay marriage, adoption etc but let's be clear, most families in ANY country do NOT and never will look like yours. Sad, mommy-fucking, money and fame worshiping, child buying idiots. Child services really needs to look into what goes on with that boy of yours.

    Honestly, perez…you are so weird. Paul Walker's story just broke…even though we knew it would be why he died. Yet you talk about yourself on top story. You milked every little detail about him before just like you did with Cory Montieth why not one last final post on the man. He deserved top story more than you will ever. People like him. He was humble you aren't at all you are a rude egotistical wannabe celebrity.They don't like you. All you get is ridicule after ridicule. You are a blogger not a celebrity stick to you day job

    Not very surprising considering you've been exploited your son since the beginning. Most parents want to protect their children, and not whore them out for fame (not including Kardashians or moms from Toddlers&Tiaras; and now you. Congrats.).
    And it's just so ridiculous, seeing as you're the one who always posts about how messed up the Gosselin kids are from being raised in front of cameras. Or comment on how child stars like LiLo and Amanda Bynes have turned into train wrecks because they didn't get a normal childhood. It takes a truly fame-mongering and self-centered parent who would put their child through that for their own benefit.

    Also, this is going to be a set back for gay parents everywhere. They just want to live a nice life with their families and not be harassed, and here you go turning it into an over-the-top spectacle. Don't pretend you have some wonderful LGBTQ agenda here, all you care about is yourself. I'm sure same-sex couples and their children will be horrified to learn that you're going to be the new 'face' of gay parenting.

    Ummm, somebody is going to murder your family. If you keep trying to assert YOU are a celebrity, its ultimately going to piss off the wrong people. It might be for the best though — then your son will finally Rest In Peace, rather than being used for Fame-Whoring. #stopthrustinginnocentchildrenintothespotlight

    Funny Mario / Perez, you post this then under different names you reply to comments (same IP address as yours)

    So the only posts defending you are yours.

    Didn't I say you are just like Sarah Palin? When this fails (and it will), you will have to 'write' a book about, umm…"The Dad With Pink Hair"! Once Junior's learning disabilities become too much for you to cover up and he shows his dislike for you, your income will wither away as your 'friends' realize your whole life history is a lie. 2014 will be a very good year for us.



  26. 26

    You couldn't pay me to watch you or your mongoloid kid on TV.



  27. 27

    I just hope u don't 'create; drama and crying like paris when she was doing hers crying and saying what a shit childhood she had and stuff …

    I bet this goes to a series the world is changing rapidly and people need to keep up with the changes not bury their heads in the sand …

    well done perez

    More trash on TV. You're going to use your kid for money just like Kris Jenner.

  29. Rock says – reply to this

    You're a poor example of the gay community. Why don't you just stay behind the scenes and stop being catty and act like an adult. You're not a role model, you're a bully behind a keyboard. I hope this show doesn't take off, or actually I hope it does take off without you in the cast. They should cast real gay fathers that are respectable and can be role models to young gays who want to start a family some day.



  30. 30

    Just what the world needs, another scripted "reality" show with someone that overacts. You're talentless. Deal with it.

  31. Spence says – reply to this

    Unreal. I was always dubious about your reasons for purchasing a baby, but now it all makes sense. You stage your photo-ops to try and make yourself more likable (impossible), and now you want to use the kid to try and get on TV. Gee, and here I thought I was the only one who had a kid for that reason. Actually, that's a lie, because I would never subject my kid to that kind of scrutiny and, let's face it, invasion of privacy. Too bad he can't talk yet, he'd probably tell you to fuck off. As a a parent you are supposed to put your child before yourself. It still boggles my mind that someone actually let this whole thing happen.

  34. 34

    So this is why you bought your kid. You just wanted on tv….



  35. 35

    I just don't see this going very well at all. :/

    Way to PIMP out your son !! So this is the REAL reason you had a kid.

    We should all write to the production company and protest this. We do not want to see Perez on tv.

    ewwww why the fuck is this even the top story. perez, im actually starting to hate you because of how judgemental and full of yourself you are. how dare you give yourself the top story spot when everyone knows theres way more important matters. lke some guy said earlier, paul walker deserves more fame, or anything else in general. use your website and your pwer to promote artists, charlities, actors. but not yourself. promoting yourself in this way seems a little sad

  39. Matt says – reply to this

    What a cool concept…until I found out you were a part of it. You will be the reason I don't watch. Why the fuck would anyone even give you the light of day?

    Just as long as you STOP. WITH. THE. GAGA. BASHING.

    Please help us if you use this as a platform to bash others.



  41. 41

    BAHAHAHAHA can't WAIT to watch this train-wreck FAIL. what a fucking joke - i mean really, an attempt to take "Perez Hilton" seriously, after what a complete cruel bully of a fucknut he's been his entire "career", is like trying to imagine moronic tools like Heidi and Spencer as real people, with real feelings. This man would sell his fucking mother in order to become a celeb (in face, practically HAS since you KNOW she and his kid are going to be a massive part of this - seriously, people - this is going to SUCK BALLS.

    Re: Toto – agree %100, i'm going to do this right now.

    43

    PEREZ, you are such a fucking joke. You can't do anything right as of late. Is this your last Wendy Williams desperate attempt at getting some attention. Your poor "son"…I can't believe you are going to do this full heartedly knowing the crap your "son" could get. Your mother should of fucking spit your dads semen out or just kept her legs closed.



  44. 44

    If they really cared about the struggles of gay fathers, they wouldn't include Mario in this show. There are so many good famous gay dads, but none who would pimp out their kid for a paycheck. A GOOD dad wouldn't do that to his child. This show won't be about GOOD, SOLID families. This show will be about drama queens and fame whores who'll try to out do each other for attention. Just like the Real World trainwrecks and the bitchy Housewives of Wherever, Perez knows he doesn't have any REAL talent. I feel sorry for his son.

  45. Jamison says – reply to this


    45

    Isn't it sad that not even on your site, people support you. At least the starts you put down have real fans….unlike you. Your poor son, hope he has insurance for the mental issues he will have to pay down the road. The show should be called "How Perez pimped out his son!" So sad Perez.

    Ha Ha Ha! This is soooooooo funny. This is a joke, right? Perez, dude, please be kidding. I simply cannot believe you would stoop to that level. For the sake of your son, please don't do this. I am sooooooooo scared for you and your kid. The repercussions could be horrible, how can you live with yourself Perez, pimping out your son? If it were actual Hollywood parents like Neil Patrick Harris or Ricky Martin it would fantastic…but a self proclaimed celebrity…puh-lease!!!!!!!



  48. 48

    YES!!! This is great news!

    Now you will see how much everyone hates you when no one watches your show! Woo!

    P.S. I don't know why this is breaking news. Amanda Bynes is out of treatment, you idiot. That's what I came here for but you are last to break the story as usual.



  49. 49

    I'm sorry but it is pretty obvious you are obsessed with being famous… which is stupid bc you're just a blogger. Hence why I prefer another blog to this one.

    Is this how Paris wants to get back into being noticed? That's pretty cheap. She could choose a much more savoury vehicle to make a 'comeback' with all the money her daddy has given her - don't tell me she earned it herself…
    She could have chosen something like 'Old Money Verses New,' 'Jail Time for the Well Off', 'Flower Arranging for Bored Rich Girls.'



  52. 52

    LOL. I love how celebrities treat their pets and kids like they are accessories and career boosters..



  53. 53

    So yeh, this is why u bought your kid..so you could milk some reality whore fame show..god you are fucking disgusting

    I freelance over the internet and earn about 80-85$ an hour. I was without a job for 7 months but last month my paycheck with big fat bonus was $15000 just working on my computer from my home for 5-6 hours. Here's what i have been doing…
