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.

ken

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.

Chicago Police Believe That Jussie Smollett May Have Been “Active Participant” In His Own Attack

Saturday has brought with it some major twists and developments into the alleged assault on Empire star, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon) through multiple reports.  Two law enforcement sources with knowledge of the on-going investigation told CNN that Chicago Police believe actor Jussie Smollet paid two men to orchestrate an assault on him.

The men in question, who are brothers, Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, were originally arrested on Wednesday, but released without charges Friday after Chicago police cited: “Due to new evidence as a result of today’s interrogations, the individuals questioned by police in the Empire case have now been released without charging and detectives have additional investigative work to complete.”  Reports also say that the two men are fully cooperating with law enforcement.

Of note is: that the brothers are of Nigerian descent and teach online body building classes. The Chicago Tribune reports that Smollett follows the brothers’ workout page on Instagram.   One brother reportedly appeared in an episode of Empire, but was not credited it for it.

Smollett’s attack happened in the early hours of January 29th on the streets of Chicago, when Smollett told authorities that two men were “yelling out racial and homophobic slurs.”  He also noted that one of the attackers put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

The sources told CNN there are records that show the two brothers purchased the rope found around Smollett’s neck at an Ace Hardware store in Chicago.

“The new direction of the investigation is now based on the premise that Mr. Smollett was an active participant in the incident,” a law enforcement source close to the situation told Deadline.

In a statement from Chicago PD late Saturday: “We can confirm that the information received from the individuals questioned by police earlier in the Empire case has in fact shifted the trajectory of the investigation. We’ve reached out to the ‘Empire’ cast member’s attorney to request a follow-up interview.”

So, what do you believe at this juncture?  Do you think Smollett would stage a hate crime on himself? Could the police just not have found the true culprits? Share your theories on this developing story.

Drake Hogestyn Chats On John Black’s Latest Predicament With Diana and Leo On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

The complex life of John Black (Drake Hogestyn) just got even more complicated on NBC’s Days of our Lives; thanks to the arrival of his ex-flame Diana Colville (Judith Chapman) and the bombshell that bad boy Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart), who has been causing so much trouble for Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), is actually his biological son!  Boy, John certainly has had some kids he never knew about pop up (remember, Paul Narita is John’s son, too).  But, is this all a tale spun by Diana, or the truth regarding Leo?

Longtime DAYS vet, Drake Hogestyn sits down with host, Michael Fairman on an all-new installment of NBC’s Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast.  During the conversation, Drake talks about his surprise learning from the script that Diana Cooper was indeed his ex, Diana Colville.

Later, Hogestyn reveals why he and Deidre Hall (Marlena) have found such success as DAYS’ enduring John and Marlena.

Michael commends Drake on his Daytime Emmy Pre-Nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his emotional turn following Marlena being shot at the Jarlena nuptials, and the family saying their goodbyes believing she was going to die, especially she the good doc had a DNR request on her legal forms filed with the hospital.

In the backstage segment of the podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady) takes Fairman on what a typical production day is like for him and others in Salem: visiting the wardrobe department, stopping to talk to the stage manager, and chatting it up with co-stars along the way including: Lauren Koslow (Kate) and Linsey Godfrey (Sarah).

The new episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast is currently streaming on NBC.com here, and will be available for download via iTunes on Monday.

So, do you think John will do next now that Diana is working her way back into his life, and Leo is his son?  Will he tell Marlena what is going on?  What did you think of the sentiments shared by Drake in the interview? Comment below.

Davidson tweeted: “Okay! So, the cat is out of the bag. NONE of any of this would happen without all of your undying loyalty, support and kindness. All of you are the reason “Paul” is back on the canvas. THANK YOU SO MUCH. has been incredible the entire time. A huge thanks to him as well!”

Doug is a Daytime Emmy winner, who started on the daytime drama series back in 1978.  Y&R did receive pushback under Mal Young’s (Ex-EP and head writer) regime for its misuse of long-standing vets.
