Did anyone know that former “Cosby Show” star Tempestt Bledsoe and “A Different World” actor Darryl Bell have been together for 16 years? The couple are cast members of the new Fox Reality Channel series, “Househusbands of Hollywood,” which began Aug. 15.
The show focuses on the lives of stay-at-home husbands. The cast includes former Los Angeles Dodger Billy Ashley, whose wife is a celebrity makeup artist and former Marine sniper Grant Reynolds, who is married to FOX 11 morning news show host Jillian Reynolds.
“I think the thing that most people will be surprised about is that we are on the show,” said Bledsoe, who is a Chicago native. “Not only do we not talk about our private life, we don’t do this type of show. We don’t fit into the mold of show, so I constantly get that question. I hope people will get past the title and see what these men are doing: pursuing their careers, taking care of their children. I have nothing but respect for that.”
