Ryan Seacrest has sold a reality dating show to NBC about momma's boys.According to the NY Post, Ryan Seacrest (the James Brown of his era, for his hard work not his paternity issues and cape-wearing) is coming out with a new show that smacks of Ashton Kutcher-ing. Per the story, Seacrest has inked a deal with NBC on a show called Are You A Momma's Boy? The show will force mothers to try and match their apron string-clinging sons with eligible brides. The mothers, sons, and brides-to-be will all live under the same roof.
The women will be a mixed bag of nice, clean girls and super freaks ("the kind you don't take home to mother," per Rick James) to keep the D R A M A poppin'. In all honesty, we don't think there’s been a decent dating show since Blind Date, so we’re amped about this. It's like Bad Girls Club meets The Bachelor with someone's mom. We can't be more than a season or 2 away from MILF Island becoming a reality. "Mom, this is Candy. She is an exotic dancer recovering from meth addiction. Candy, this is my mom. We'll be living with her until we can afford a place of our own. And because I've never been away from her for more than a week and that was the worst spring break ever. She couldn't chaperone because she pulled a muscle hugging me. You are going to be best friends, I just know it."
Are there any weird motives in Seacrest starting a reality show about dudes that have a particular affinity for their mothers? We're probably reading too much into this.
