Perez Hilton tackled the world of celebrity blogging way back in 2004. After running one of the most popular blogs for almost 10 years, he has also ventured into music and now he's making the leap to reality TV! It looks like his latest role as a dad is what inspired him to take the plunge.
Perez announced today that he is teaming up with Bunim/Murray productions (The Real World, KUWTK, Project Runway) to bring us a brand new reality show about gay dads raising their families in NYC.
Not only will Perez be producing Gay Dads Of New York, but he'll be starring on the show as well. "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."

Perez shared, “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."
Perez not only hopes that it will show us the real Perez Hilton (aka Mario Lavandeira), but will also shed some light on gay parenting. "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!"
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/
