It’s hard to think about reality TV without thinking about our favorite lovable Idol host, Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest’s got his finger in more reality pies these days than you could even count. Yesterday NBC announced yet another Seacrest-produced reality show in the works.
Yep, it’s another dating/marriage show, but this time with a twist–the hopeful women must first woo Mom in order to score the lucky bachelor. Not so scary, you think? Aha! There’s a twist (isn’t there always in reality TV?)! Mom and son… and bride-to-be must all live together in the same house while Mom whittles down the marriage pool for her little boy.
“This series throws Mom right in the middle of all the drama,” said Seacrest. “It’s loud, it’s wild and it’s real.”
Glassman concurs: “Momma’s Boys is going to be a loud, wild ride of emotions and drama, designed to answer the question – ‘Who is really the most important woman, in a man’s life?’ For our moms and for our guys, the stakes couldn’t be higher,” he said.
Expect lots of drama as the moms must choose between “nice girls” and temptresses and as alliances are formed and enemies made.
So… is Seacrest a momma’s boy?
“Anytime I make a decision either personally or professionally, I have to ask myself…what would my mother say? Like it or not, I am a true Momma’s Boy. She is the most important woman in my life and she is never short of opinions,” he said [insert "Ahhh" here].
A premiere date and time have yet to be announced for Momma’s Boys, but word has it the show will air on the heels of NBC’s All-American summer. Check back with Reality TV Magazine for more information as it is released.
