Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell on “The Fabulous Beekman Boys”

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Are you hooked yet on the terrific new reality series The Fabulous Beekman Boys?

A new episode of the show premieres tonight on Planet Green and looks pretty entertaining. Titled Unhappy Birthday, New York Times best-selling author Josh Kilmer-Purcell wants to celebrate his 40th birthday on the farm he runs with partner Brent Ridge, a former executive with Martha Stewart’s company.

Brent has other plans for the property that weekend: the first-ever wedding at The Beekman Farm where these former gay urbanites produce goat milk soap and other organic products.

Josh confesses that his disappointment lies less in the fact that he didn’t get a birthday party and more in that another couple is getting married there before he and Brent can legally tie the knot themselves with same-sex marriage still not legal in the state of New York.

I met Brent and Josh back in January at the TV Critics Press Tour and we had a nice chat after their session with reporters.

Brent told me he had no problem with the show being labeled as some kind of real-life Green Acres, the popular 60s sitcom starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor about a fish-out-of-water couple who move to from Manhattan to a farm: “We know that people are going to make that comparison and I think at some level that’s truthful.”
