Real Househusbands of Atlanta

Does the title seem intriguing? I didn't think so.

Still, the company associated with the "Real Housewives" franchise is shopping around a version of the reality TV series that focuses on men.

It will reportedly be set in Atlanta and titled "Boys Club: ATL."

Here's what one insider said about the project:

"We'd obviously admired from afar what (casting exec Princess Banton-Lofters) did with 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,' and when she approached us with this idea, it was a slam dunk" said Evolution President Douglas Ross. "Men's lives are as dramatic and interesting as their female counterparts."

Not exactly.

In fact, I see absolutely no parallels between the two concepts. Men's lives may be interesting, but they certainly lack the potential for petty drama that drives the "Housewives" franchise.

Trust me: That's not an insult, guys.
