Dwight Eubanks: ‘I am not the sixth housewife’

imageWhether he’s offering tours of his regal home or dishing that he’s bi and engaged, Dwight Eubanks keeps it real. That’s what we expect from Thursday’s season finale of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

Eubanks is assisting Sheree Whitfield with her long-awaited fashion show and the sparks and runway drama are sure to be a staple of the finale. (Comcast 70, 10 p.m.) You can even join him as he hosts a free watch party of the show at Vino Libro Thursday night.

In advance of the episode, Eubanks spoke about the hit Bravo series in an interview with Black Voices.

Make no mistake about it, no one behind the scenes is telling ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Dwight Eubanks what to do. The Atlanta native went from having a simple cameo as Nene Leakes’ scene-stealing “gay boyfriend” to becoming a main cast member on the second season of the hit Bravo reality television series.

“I am not an actor. I was asked to come on and be a part of the show and to be real…I am not the sixth housewife,” Eubanks told BV Newswire yesterday.

“If I wanted to be with a woman, I will be with a woman, and if I want to be with a guy, then I will be with a guy,” he declared. “I like all fruits, but I do have a problem with [people] dwelling on ‘Dwight the gay housewife.’ Let’s get to know Dwight.”

If that’s not enough, you can catch more of Eubanks Friday as the guest of honor at the annual gay romp known as the Jerusalem House Halloween Bash on Oct. 23. This year’s theme is “Carnevele After Dark.”
