Househusbands of Hollywood is a reality television series that aired on FOX Reality in 2009. The show follows the lives of five men who have left behind their careers to become stay-at-home dads, while their famous wives or ex-wives pursue their Hollywood careers. The show highlights their struggles, milestones, and day-to-day activities as they navigate their new roles.

The main cast consists of Billy Ashley, Danny Barclay, Darryl M. Bell, Charlie Mattera, and Grant Reynolds. Each of these men is married to a successful actress or entertainer, and they have decided to put their careers on hold to raise their children.

Billy Ashley, a former Major League Baseball player, is married to one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, actress and model Vanessa Williams. Danny Barclay, a former television producer and actor, is married to reality star Stacy Kamano. Darryl M. Bell, a veteran actor, is married to actress Tempestt Bledsoe. Charlie Mattera, a former stockbroker, is married to soap opera actress Alison Sweeney. Grant Reynolds, a former Marine, is married to actor Jillian Barberie.

Throughout the show, viewers get a glimpse into the daily routine of these stay-at-home dads, as they juggle household chores, school drop-offs, and pick-ups, attending PTA meetings, and caring for their children. The wives are occasionally seen throughout episodes as well, but the show mainly focuses on the husbands and their experience as primary caregivers.

One of the main themes of the show is the role reversal between the men and their wives. Many of the men express their surprise and sometimes frustration with the challenges of managing a household and raising children, while their wives work long hours on set or in studios. The show explores gender roles and societal expectations, as it sheds light on the often-overlooked role of stay-at-home fathers.

Another theme of the show is the relationships between the husbands and their wives. The show presents the struggles of making time for their marriages while balancing the needs of their children. It shows how the men try to keep the romance alive in their relationships while supporting their wives' career aspirations.

The show also dives into the personal lives of each husband, portraying their personal and emotional struggles, such as Darryl's infertility struggles that led to the couple's decision to adopt, or Charlie's cancer scare.

Overall, Househusbands of Hollywood provides a fresh perspective on family dynamics, gender roles, and relationships. It is a heartwarming and hilarious look at the lives of stay-at-home dads, who happily trade in their careers to raise their children, while supporting their wives' Hollywood dreams.

Househusbands of Hollywood is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (11 episodes). The series first aired on August 15, 2009.
