LA dads-of-two, PR pros, TV personalities, and adoption advocates and mentors, Bill and Scout will bring a unique parenting perspective and big sense of fun to the Show. Read on to learn more about them.
Bill and Scout started their journey as The Guncles with best friends Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott, being seen by millions on their Oxygen reality show “Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood.” Over the course of six seasons, The Guncles road-tripped across America, celebrated many a birthday together, and shared numerous emotional milestones with their modern day “family.”
In 2009, fans tuned in to watch Bill and Scout exchange vows at a commitment ceremony planned by Spelling. And throughout Seasons 4 and 5, audiences saw the couple struggle with the emotional highs and lows of trying to adopt a child of their own. Season 5 ended in June 2010 with the news that the couple had found a birth mom. And soon after that season finale aired, the couple announced the birth of daughter Simone Lynn Masterson-Horn.
Season 6 opened in late November 2011 with the birth of Simone, making The Guncles the very first gay family with a child regularly appearing on a reality television show.
Since the completion of “Tori & Dean,” Bill and Scout have continued to grow their fan base and launched an adoption mentoring service, Hold My Hand. In 2012, Hold My Hand helped nearly 150 families with all areas of the adoption process. They also run a successful boutique PR and marketing firm, Marque Communications, which specializes in baby and kids products and produces celebrity family events.
In August 2014, Bill, Scout, and Simone welcomed the newest member of their family: Bosley Jo Masterson-Horn, also via open adoption. Since that time, the family has appeared on several shows on Bravo, E!, Food Network, and the Cooking Channel. The Guncles also have several projects in stages of development and plan to return to TV soon.
In 2015, Bill and Scout created a collaboration baby carrier with LILLEbaby, in which the couple gave their entire profit share to the non-profit adoption organization that helped them create their very own family, The Independent Adoption Center. As a result of The Guncles x LILLEbaby carrier sales (and LILLEbaby’s generous matching donation), the couple raised over $25,000 for the IAC that was set in a trust to be used by families financially struggling with their open adoption processes.
Bill and Scout enjoy being philanthropic and raise Simone and Bosley with the importance of helping others who need a helping hand. The couple is on the Los Angeles committee of the GOOD+ Foundation (formerly known as Baby Buggy), and they produce and host an annual holiday event benefiting L.A. Family Housing.
