Is Dwight Eubanks, the sassy gay hairdresser friend on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” getting his spinoff show on Bravo?
A good source of mine said it’s true but Eubanks, in an interview, said no, he doesn’t have a signed deal with them. This doesn’t mean it won’t happen. He just said it’s not a done deal yet. “We’re talking,” he said coyly via phone from his salon Purple Door.
Bravo spokesman Rachelle Savoia wrote in an email, “No truth.”
Eubanks, who claims to be friends with all five of the current housewives, has some other show ideas, too, including a day in the life of what goes on in the gay community from a transgender and transexual perspective and a sitcom possibly starring Dwight. (”I’m not an actor by any means. That’s not my forte,” he said.)
He said he’ll be seen in the second season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” starting July 30. “Oh yes,” he said. “I can’t let them have fun without me.” As for the silliness that will ensue, he said, “It has to get crazy. It can’t be like it was. That’s the foundation upon what they’re build on. It’s going to be an exciting year.”
Eubanks said the show has made him a mini-celebrity. “I can’t walk through the mall normally,” he said. “I used to say you’d be amazed of the power of the [a phrase for female genitalia related to cats] and the penis, but the power of the camera really takes it to a different level.”
But isn’t he worried a camera might capture him behaving badly? “I’m never on good behavior,” he said. “I’m just living my life and making the best of it whether cameras are there or not.”
As for Sheree’s new pad, he said it’s smaller than 5525 Long Island Drive but “it’s decorated beautifully.”
