Magic Johnson’s son, Earvin Johnson III, appeared on E!’s “Fashion Police” last week to share his insight on the latest style trends worn by celebrities.

But aside from his witty banter on who wore what best, he also addressed more personal topics and revealed that he will be starring in a reality show airing on E! in January.

The show is titled “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” and E.J. is one of five wealthy young adults who will be documented on camera as they parade around the city flaunting their designer tags.

“You’ll see me doing the absolute worst with all my crazy friends,” he said.

E.J. publicly came out of the closet after TMZ revealed that he was gay earlier this year. However, despite the varying responses he received from the public, his family appear to be standing by him.

“I don’t care about the backlash, if somebody doesn’t agree, that’s just tough on them. I’m gonna love my son until the end,” Johnson previously told theGrio. “He has a right to decide who he wants to be, who he wants to date, and who he wants to marry, and he has decided that that’s a man, and that’s okay by us.”

E.J. told “Fashion Police” host Joan Rivers that he and his father have a close relationship and they both enjoy shopping together — although according to the 20-year-old, he has better style.
