The Real Friends of WeHo reality series is coming to MTV. The show follows the lives of six LGBTQ+ celebrities, personalities, and entrepreneurs living in West Hollywood (even though most of us rarely see them in WeHo), feature Brad Goreski, a celebrity stylist; Todrick Hall, a choreographer and singer; Curtis Hamilton, an actor; Dorión Renaud, CEO of Buttah Skincare; Jaymes Vaughan, a TV host and business owner; and Joey Zauzig, a digital entrepreneur.
The series will give viewers an “unfiltered and honest look” at the group’s lives and passions in the West Hollywood community. The Real Friends of WeHo will premier on Friday, January 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT following RuPaul’s Drag Race.
If the premise sounds familiar to you, that’s because you’re thinking about The Men of West Hollywood, a reality TV drama series that premiered on Crackle around the same time last year. Similar to Real Friends of Weho, cameras followed a group of friends in West Hollywood. The Men offered Mr. California, a plastic surgery “icon,” a celebrity photographer, a top underwear model, a YouTube star and a luxury property owner — six of the biggest male socialites in the city (allegedly). These Men, along with their boyfriends and girlfriends, gave a glimpse into their lavish WeHo lifestyles and it was pretty forgettable.
