“A Real Housewife”
Brian Baisch blogs about life as a ‘housewife’
As a married gay man, Baisch is using his energy to help others with domestic chores while at the same time “showing people around here that gays are just like everybody else.”
The house is spotless. The yard is perfect. A pot roast is tucked in the oven.
But a housewife’s job is never done.
Just ask Brian Baisch. He’s “The Real Housewife of Snohomish County.”
That’s the name of his blog, and he stands by it like a man.
“I know I’m not a woman, but I live the life of a housewife,” said Baisch, a 33-year-old newlywed. “I run the household. I take care of the dogs and chickens and the garden and I volunteer.”
In the idyllic Edmonds suburbs, he’s just another apron-wearing, dust-busting multi-tasker with a hard-working doctor husband to feed and a two-story house that doesn’t clean itself.
