Is B&B's Thomas going to turn out to be gay after all?

So what happened to the potential taboo romance of Brooke and Thomas on The Bold and the Beautiful? Well, when you have two steamy performers like Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and Adam Gregory (Thomas) you possibly hope it might be re-addressed down the line, now that Thomas has recently been wooing other women on the B&B canvas including Dayzee.

But according to TV Guide today, things might be headed for a major shift on several fronts, when they spoke to B&B’s head honcho, Brad Bell. “This is a slow burn and we will continue to walk the tightrope with those two. Will we go there? Will it happen? We’re going to be flirting with that for awhile. Sometimes when you play with fire you get burned.”  And apparently on the upcoming March 7th episode, Ridge finds out about that kiss in Paris between the two and takes some drastic measures.

But Bell also is not discounting having the character of Thomas actually turning out to be gay! “He’s a late bloomer who’s finding himself sexually and Adam plays the role with an interesting element of mystery. Adam’s new to us. I’m still getting to know him as actor and assessing his chemistry with the various ladies. Potentially, this could still be a gay storyline.”

So how do you feel about this? Could Thomas finally be the first gay character on the B&B canvas? Or, would you like him to be in a taboo relationship with his mother-in-law, Brooke? Let us know.

Thomas is the only Forrester Brooke hasn’t slept with, sure it will happen sometime. I think more than gay make him bisexual and deal with it on screen. His girl and his guy drama.

I hope not because how will it ever get resolved.Ridge could never forgive Brooke or Thomas and I think Brooke and Ridge belong together.The thought of Brooke and Thomas is too disgusting and will destroy the Father/ Son relationship forever….I just have to add i cannot stand the character of Steffy.She is so trashy and wants whatever Hope has and also seems to have a thing for Dollar Bill.Writers, make her more decent or get rid of her.I like Donna and Bill and don’t want that brat to mess them up.Also I love Don Diamont when he’s diabolical.He reminds me of a handsome version of what Lucifer would look like when he was angry!

I think Steffy is just a young version of the way Brooke was when she was young. I don’t know how Ridge ever got past her being with his dad and brother. I think he would forgive her anything. Don’t forget her accidental sex with Oliver. I love Don Diamont too. I also love your take on him about reminding you of a handsome Lucifer when angry. Never thought of it but now I know who he is reminding me of. Thanks for that insight.

I meant to say Katie and Bill , not Donna and Bill.That’s how aggravated Steffy makes me, she mixed me up! i don’t know who I dislike more, Amber or Steffy…two trashy girls from both sides of the tracks!!!!

Gay!!! Makes perfect sense, a gay fashion designer? Who would ever have imagined. LOL.. Whatever Brad Bell does will be good, it always is.

the show is about fashion designers. i don’t get how there couldn’t be not ONE gay character on the show! i’m all for it. brad bell tells great stories so i have every bit of faith he would do that story justice. unlike the head honchos at guiding light, one life, and world turns. i say bring it!

I’m liking Adam Gregory more lately.He’s even looking better.It is amazing in a design house there is not one gay designer.We know there are straight designers too but many gays too and that has never been addressed.i’m trying to get into B&B since my ATWT bit the dust, but i can’t love it.And unfortunately having Thomas be gay is like a death sentence.Not everybody lasts as long as Luke on ATWT.Van hansis as Luke had a strong fan following, not to mention he’s a wonderful actor.but at the end they destroyed him by killing off his partner and leaving him to grieve.I can’t see them making Thomas gay…..TPTB will end up destroying him.

Make him gay or bi or make him with Brooke, the Daisy storyline is disgusting she is not a good actress at all.

Why is the idea of Dayzee & Thomas disgusting?, But making him gay or bi is okay???? Give me a break! Nobody on that show is a good actor. Not only that, they sleep with each others exes!!! How disgusting is that!!

mmc

it just doesn’t make sense.They had Thomas obsessing about Brooke and then he was interested in Daisy.i never saw that coming.I watch this show but some days I get so frustrated.if it wasn’t for D.D. i’d never watch.i’m still mourning my ATWT.

This new Thomas does not have the acting chops for a gay storyline! Back story he was married once ! He was also with Amber! Just stupid!

That would be a good story if Thomas turned out to be gay but most soaps don’t address alot of the real problems real gay people have.. It would be nice to see a story maybe a religious fanatic harrassed someone or see a story of somthing that would lead to a hate crime but it would have to be carefully woven to be a good story.. I for one and tired of Brookes addiction to the forrester men and really i don’t want to see her involved with thomas kind of makes her look like she might have pedophile tendancies..

Keep him straight, if he goes gay, he will go away. Those story lines never work for long. He also needs more experience with his acting.

It will not be surprising if he did.

i really hope the show doesn’t continue in the direction of brooke and thomas…. if it does .. i quit watching the show. brooke has finally found some decency in her relationship with ridge… why must she always be a sex starved inappropriate woman..
i actually like thomas with dayzze i think they have chemistry.

again i hope they don’t get together… it s just to disgusting and since As the world has gone off air id really hate to stop watching this one too…..

Why does BB pick the ugliest girl to be Daisy. They always get it wrong with African Americans. Just like on Y&R they got an ugly Malcom to replace Shemar Moore. The African Americans on CBS soaps are always. Homeless Dazyee, can’t read Drucilla and Malcom could not read when they first got on the show. Look at Marcus Dad ugly ugly. They picked a beautiful man to play Ridge they could do it for the Blacks on the show.

How disappointing would that be. Taking away all the allure of his character and turning him into something less than a man! Sorry, the truth hurts sometimes.

Not only that I’ve always thought about Thomas as gay, now, when he lives with Oliver in Taylor’s beach house, it totally makes sense!
Two shirtless handsome guys on a sunny California beach would be just perfect.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
