Is “Real Housewives” Dwight Eubanks getting a Bravo spinoff show?

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.”

I can’t wait to never watch this tripe again. I’m so glad that I’m not among the lowest common denominator that comprise the target demographic for this show.

I’m sure this potential show would lift up the perception of gay people just like Real Housewives have lifted the perception of Atlanta.

Seriously, you guys, thanks but no thanks.

If this man gets the chance to be blessed, let him get blessed. Are you all jealous? That’s what’s wrong with the world today. So many people want to judge. Judge yourself!!!!!! Everyone has to give an account for what ever they do that is not pleasing of God.

Why is it that the media chooses to use gay men who act feminine and queenish? I suppose the gay men who actually ACT like men aren’t dramatic enough for mainstream television.

Another great representative of the beautiful city of Atlanta………….God help us all living in this city.

The brothas have ruined Atlanta. Buckhead and Atlantic Station are perfect examples of what blacks will do to a city. Not being racist..just a FACT.

Agree Chris….

Went to Denver a month ago and its amazing the difference between each city. Denver has SO MUCH more to offer and is so much more safe. People can actually walk around at night and not worry about being mugged by some brothas in a black SUV. They have something similar to Atlantic Static but you can actually leave after dark.

They also have an awesome entertainment district downtown and around Coors Field instead of drueling bums asking for beer and cigarettes.

And I will go ahead and tell the poster named Shanewka that will post the comment, ” why dont you move there” that I am already looking into it. Thanks!

Realist, you are no realist. You are racist. African Americans have contributed mightily to this great city. I am white – a 5th generation Atlantan. What has hurt this city is racist, uneducated white trash….might that include you? I thought big haired girls from Gwinnett ruined Buckhead. This NATIVE Buckhead girl agrees with your imaginary Shanewka – Leave our town – and I guess Denver is as far from home as you have ever traveled? Did you go to college? Do you have a degree in anything more than redneck studies? (and please – check your spelling)

Normalmom are you that uneducated? Do you really believe that black people have not totally ruined Atlanta? Were you here in the 60’s and 70’s when it was a mostly white city with very little crime and problems? Once it became a black city, everything went downhill. How is that racist? It is called a fact. Look who has screwed up Atlantic Station? Look who is causing all of the crime near GA Tech? How often do you see a murder committed by a white person in Atlanta? Blacks do it daily.

Oh wow! I’ve never been exposed to such racism since I moved to Atlanta, and I come from a small town in middle Georgia. The realist and his little co-signer obviously needs to get over their whiny ways and leave all of that hatred behind. Please stop with the stereotypes.

To Alan any anyone else who has anything bad to say about M.J..He was acquitted by a jury of YOUR peers,meaning it was an all white jury. He was proven innocent,twice, in a court of law. Who are you to judge? You need to get a life and get your lazy ass off of the computer. O yeah BLACKS rule this country;literally, thats what up with all of these Black shows.HA HA HA

Sorry, but his image is what makes coming out of the closet that much more difficult. Parents and friends see drag queens and flamboyant men like Dwight and instantly think their son will be that way. Let’s hear it for the suit and tie professionals who don’t rock the boat but just want to cruise along with everyone else!

Pascuel Perez, you’re talking about black people are too sensitive? Who’s on a random blog crying about it being too many black people in a city and crying about how Atlanta USED to be?? Sounds quite sensitive to me! If you really want “action about black people taking over”, please get off a blog where you can be anonymous and speak up or SHUT UP!

It tends to be HOW the white man says things. And please don’t give me that bull. White men and women speak out daily. It’s the ones that hide behind the Internet saying racist things that I have a problem with! Especially when it’s on an entertainment blog where race shouldn’t even be an issue.

And don’t tell me racism isn’t prominent today. I can often go in a restaurant in my community and just be stared at because I do not have white skin, even though I have the same(maybe higher) education level, income level, etc. as the other people there.

Pryncess

Are you serious?? You can’t be. I guess the only white people are well known white people?? And you’re really saying racism is prominent because blacks make it an issue?? So you’re telling me, that when I walked into a restaurant, I made the white people look at me funny and stop talking because I was the only person of color there? OH, I know! I made the white cashier take the white man that was behind me order first?? Right…And not once did I say racism is limited to the South. Nor is it limited to black and white. And where did I say I was going to sue anyone or that I was angry or anything of that sort??? Bottom line is, the people that do have issues with black people (like you) need to get over themselves, recognize black people are no longer the bottom of the barrel, and get on with their lives. I think you’ll live happier lives. God approves. Now, I’m done with this little conversation with you. It’s beneath my morals and standards.

I would be glued to the screen every week to see what Dwight is going to say next. He is my favorite on Atlanta Housewifes, he and NeNe should have a show together.
