This week on Dr. Blogstein’s
Radio Happy Hour:
Charlie Mattera is the creator, executive producer and star of FOX Reality Channel’s latest sensation, Househusbands of Hollywood.
In addition to Mattera, “Househusbands” follows Billy Ashley (former outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox, married to makeup artist Lisa Ashley), Danny Barclay (aspiring actor, married to attorney Katherine Barclay), Darryl Bell (best known for playing Ron on “A Different World,” dating Tempestt Bledsoe, late of “The Cosby Show”), and Grant Reynolds (former USMC sniper, married to Gillian Reynolds of “Good Day L.A.” and “Fox NFL Sunday”) as they navigate a life in which their wives are bringing home the bacon. King of the castle…ruler of the roost…until his wife comes home from work.
According to the ex-convict turned actor /screenwriter and current husband to psychologist and best friend to actor Ryan O’Neal:
“This is a great country. It’s America. You can really put a foot to your life. You can destroy yourself in the worst possible way, but you can also come back from Hell. And I’ve worked very hard to get my life back on track, and I figured, after a criminal background, the only place to go would be Hollywood because there’s so many criminals in film and in the entertainment business, and I figured I’d be right at home. But I was very lucky and fortunate enough to meet a really nice girl. And my wife is a psychologist, so I have in-house counsel. And she’s a great girl, and she’s put up with me and dealt with me and given me a beautiful son. So, right now, I look at it like I’m batting a thousand.”
