'House HUSBANDs of Hollywood' – men dealing with role reversal and true to life problems at home

I was bored one day and decided to check out Fox' new reality television show “Househusbands of Hollywood'. I was pleasantly surprised. Perhaps I would have been more interested in the show initially if it was named 'Househusbands' and Hollywood had been left out of the title. The show was centered around five men; Danny, Grant, Darryl, Charlie and Billy; and their families.

Grant is married to Jillian a television anchor. He is no longer actively pursuing acting because his primary job is to take care of their daughter Ruby. Darryl is dating Tempestt (Cosby Show). They met when he was on the television show 'Different World'. Danny is a struggling actor trying to get his break. He studied medicine and is married to Katherine, who is a high powered attorney and the family bread winner. Katherine wants to have a child and Danny is not completely on board with that idea. Charlie is an ex con who is married to a prominent psychologist (who we will never meet because of her job). He is raising their son and battling with past evils. His parents in law do not know about his past and it is troubling him. Ever wonder what happened to Billy Ashley, former major league baseball player? Well wonder no more. He is married to Lisa, Hollywood Make up artist and new business owner. He is staying home raising their two daughters and helping Lisa with her cosmetic line.

The producers picked a good sample of different families that can help viewers to connect to their issues. They also didn't pick extremely rich 'Hollywood' families so that the average Joe can make that connection, although most likely you won't see much mention of money issues. The only thing I saw in watching both first and second show was when Tempestt and Darryl were discussing/arguing about throwing out bad food in the fridge. He mentioned that what she was throwing out was worth five dollars.

The interesting part of this show is watching how these men take over what is traditionally considered the woman& apos;s job and struggle to maintain their masculinity. The other interesting aspect is to see how well the women handle being the bread winners. A funny scene was when Danny complained that Katherine thinks all he does all day is sit around. She looked at him and after a long pause said, isn't that what you do? Two of the women make 'Honey do lists' for their men and call them throughout the day to make sure things are getting done.

All in all, Fox did a great job of putting together an interesting spin off to an age old concept. For people interested in psychology and sociology it is a smorgasbord of fun packed into one hour. For people simply interested in family dynamics you will find the show a refreshing change. And for people who study relationships you will enjoy the dynamics that this show has to offer. Check out the show on Fox' Reality Channel.I was bored one day and decided to check out Fox' new reality television show “Househusbands of Hollywood& apos;. I was pleasantly surprised.
