I have not addressed the issue of this racist "smash" reality show in Britian.  There's lots of information about it if you haven't heard.  The reaction of the Romani/Gypsy/Traveler community in Britian has been adamantly negative pointing out the danger, lies and racism of the show.  But all that matters is that

Now they want to bring it to the United States.

Simon Cowell looking to bring 'My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings' to US

February 27th, 2011
Simon Cowell is one busy man. He is still working on bringing "X Factor" to Fox channel 10 in Tempe later this year, but now he is looking to bring another television series from the UK to America - "My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings."

The Sun released the news earlier this weekend, and apparently Cowell is in talks with the people behind the series. In the UK, the series is a big hit, and Cowell sees the potential for the series to do the same when made for the American market.

A source said the following about the venture by Cowell:

"Simon knows all the TV execs in America. He is the man to make it happen. Everyone at Firecracker is very excited about it."

Would this series be something viewers would be interested in? Simon Cowell does seem to have the magic touch when it comes to television series. He is still hard at work on "X Factor" though. That series is promising to change things up from what he used to have on "American Idol." September 2011 should be interesting with the premiere of "X Factor".
