We’ll have to wait to see how HBO portrays Houston in the world of reality television.
House of Ho, the HBO Max reality show that chronicles the lives of the extended Bayou City family of entrepreneur Binh Ho and his wife Hue, has been postponed from its announced July 16 launch date. A new date has not yet been announced, but could start in the fall. A spokesperson for HBO Max said the network felt the series would be more appropriate for the fall and vacation.
In addition to the grandparents Binh and Ho, the series immerses itself in the worlds of the party-hearted son Washington and the unconventional aunt Tina, whose hair is streaked purple.
HBO Max describes the show on its website as follows: “House of Ho … chronicles the daily lives of Patriarch Binh Ho, Matriarch Hue Ho, their daughter Judy Ho, their son Washington Ho and his wife Lesley Ho, aunt Tina and cousin Sammy. The power couple Binh and his wife Hue emigrated to the United States from Vietnam on little money and relied on hard work to make the ultimate American dream come true. You’ve built a multi-million dollar bank, real estate development company, and a new generation of American Hos. The series pulls back the curtain on their lavish Houston lifestyles, revealing the close family ties that unite them and the resulting outrageous drama that has spanned generations. “
TO UPDATE: Story will be updated with HBO’s reason for the change of plan.
