Magic Johnson’s son, EJ Johnson, went from obscure celebrity child to household name after he proudly came out as gay this past spring. Now, EJ is set to solidify his status as a star now that he’s set to appear in an upcoming reality show.
According to The Jasmine Brand, EJ revealed the reality show news while chatting with Joan Rivers on a recent episode of “Fashion Police,” explaining that he’s signed on as cast mate on E!’s new reality series, “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.”
“Ummm, yes, I’m working on something with E! right now. You’ll see me doing the absolute most with all my crazy friends and stuff like that. So I’m definitely coming up in the entertainment world. Definitely a talk show down the line, is my ultimate goal and you know dabbling in fashion and entertainment,” EJ revealed to Rivers.
Last month, Johnson hinted to the world that his son would be entering the world of TV when he sat down for a chat with Arsenio Hall.
“Four or five TV stations have called. They wanna build shows around him. And he’s getting all this incredible support. And I wanna thank everybody because you know it was tough for him because he has to make that decision that he wanted to share with the world,” Johnson said.
EJ spoke of his relationship with his dad while talking with Rivers and explained that, although he’s not into sports, he and his dad have a strong connection over fashion.
“Me and my dad, we go shopping all the time. He helps me pick out clothes and bags and stuff like that. We do share a common love of clothes and traveling,” said EJ.
Well, we’re excited to see how EJ does on his new reality show, which is set to debut in January. He’s not the only celebrity kid doing major things. Check out some other successful celebrity kids below. –nicholas robinson
