Antoine Dodson is in talks for a reality show, has new Halloween costume

Antoine Johnson has a new Halloween costume for sale, based on his infamous appearance during a local Huntsville, Alabama news interview when he went on off on his sister’s attacker. It includes a frizzy Afro wig, a red do rag and a black tank top with the words “Hide Yo Kids” across the front. It also includes a rolled up piece of paper, which Johnson admitted on an interview was just a bus schedule. You can buy your Bed Intruder costume for $18.99 on BedIntruderCostume.com and proceeds go to Dodson and his family. (We mentioned this in an earlier story but I just saw this new promotional video, above, on D-Listed and wanted to cover it.)

Antoine recently tweeted that he was going to Los Angeles to discuss a potential reality show deal. The thought of a reality show in general on anyone’s life makes me roll my eyes, but in Antoine’s case I say “why not?” The guy is funny, highly likable and is obviously a character. I’d love to get to know him and his family.

Last week we covered Antoine’s performance of his auto-tuned Bed Intruder song on The BET Hip Hop Awards. The consensus was that Antoine did a great job and that he should have sung alone without one of the Gregory Brothers (the band that put out his famous song) trying to chime in too. The Gregory Brothers may have made him famous but we know who the star is.

    Well the Gregory Brothers didn’t make him famous IMO. He made his self famous. The video of him going off was viral and receiving millions of views before the Gregory Brother did the song, the song was picked up by media and helped make him some money.

    I would love to see Antoine’s show if he made one and I finally know what I am gonna be for Halloween.

    i like him… i also like what he’s said in interviews so far. he seems genuine, even though he changed his appearance. he’s been positive.

    i also like that he’s OUT and sees this as an opportunity to be open about it in a time when we still have DADT, etc…

  6. WOW is that guy wearing an Antoine mask? that is SO realistic lol X_X

    He is nice though and really funny i would watch his show, P.S i dunno about everybody else but when i’m watching the “Bed Intruder” song on youtube i turn it off when the Gregory Brother starts lol

    Oh, Celebitchy, how I love your site. When that outage happened yesterday part of me was in hysterics. Didn’t know I was addicted till then! I study gender and politics and this is the only funny, smart, and addictive site that isn’t oppressive. Win -win for everyone!

    Go ahead. Take your 15 minutes. It’ll be over soon enough.

  12. Stef says:

    I kinda like him too. I think he actually seems sincere and appreciative of what this all has done for him. I also think his “weeeELLL” is hilarious hahaha

  13. Lushus L. says:

    OMG! If anyone shows up at my door on Halloween wearing that costume I will tinkle my pants! FOR REAL! :-)

  14. jen says:

    Normally I would hate this kind of thing, but for Antoine, I say push it as far as you can. He DOES seem genuinely nice, and cool, and FUNNY AS HELL, and if he has a chance for something better for himself and his family I totally say get it while you can. Go Antoine! :D

  15. Elle says:

    I like him! I think he is hilarious. He definitely needs to have his own show. I would watch it!

  16. Incognita says:

    I consider myself one of ‘Toine’s biggest fans. I appreciate his desire to protect his sister and fearless attitude. His show would definitely be a must-see!
