I had a chance to watch the new Fox Reality Original series, Househusbands of Hollywood that premiered last Saturday, August 15. First, I was disappointed that most of the “househusbands” are aspiring or professional (or not so professional) actors so the show did not feel genuine or fit the bill as “reality” show.
Second, I did not find the show to be very entertaining – I was not excited to see what would happen next.
Last, as I mentioned in my previous post, only three of the five guys in the show are dads … so the other two felt thrown into the mix because they are ‘characters’ to create drama.
There were a couple of highlights: I enjoyed the one dad (who had previously been incarcerated for 8 years on bank robbery charges) who was flying by the seat of his pants in his daddy role. He made the job look very entertaining. Additionally, I enjoyed Danny who who focuses a large portion of his free time on his keg-arator (a mobile fridge with a keg & tap) project. It reminded me of my days back in college! Lastly, it was amusing to see the different ways a few of the wives provide the guys with their “honey do” chore lists.
Overall, Househusbands of Hollywood is not a complete waste of my time…but, I will not be tuning in next week.
