One Life to Live cannot come soon enough for those who have waited for its return this Monday, April 29th, and on that date as well, Tuc Watkins (who is the stand out in the first episode of the revival as David Vickers) is the very special guest on Marie Osmond’s Hallmark Channel’s talk show, Marie! (Noon EST/11CST).

In a preview of his segment, TV Guide received the exclusive that has Tuc revealing that he is a gay dad of two children, when he recently welcomed twins via surrogacy, Catchen and Curtis!

Watkins tells Osmond he was certain about three things when he was young:  “I knew I was gay.  I knew one day I was going to be a dad, and I knew Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was going to be the best movie of all-time!”

Watch the clip below from Marie, and let us know if this makes you love Tuc all the more!

Always felt Tuc was gay – always thought he was hot – always fantasized about finding a guy like him. Don’t know if this was his official public coming-out moment, but it was nice to hear him state it in such a calm, conversational manner. He looks very content and happy in his own skin – and because of that, he is probably a great dad, too.

Good for him for acknowledging that he’s gay in public! I know a lot of people/fans might be uncomfortable but I’m very proud he’s being true to himself. Bravo!

I am so happy that Tuc is a Dad, and now, one of the few OUT gays in daytime soaps. Maybe his openess will help other gay and lesbian soap stars feel comfortable enough to come out.

I think many more soap actors would but the network won’t let them. They want to save face with the viewers, they think it’ll drive them away as well as advertisers. Great think about Prospect Park is they aren’t on network so I’m sure they support him 100 percent.

Tuc Watkins is fantastic! He steals every scene he is in. From David Buckets to his roles in The Mummy and Desperate Housewives, his performances always rock! Congrats on being a dad, Tuc! Many blessings to you & your family!

I can’t help but believe… that… should and when… the supreme court… declares that CA’s prop 8 is heralded as unseemly…ill gotten gains… unjustly courted…

that we are ALL declared equal….

that it’s a matter of time that… we look each other in the eye with no misgivings.

i don’t question your validity.

I haven’t had the chance to watch OLTL…

that being said….

He is hysterical! I’ve loved watching and laughing at him on OLTL, enjoyed watching him on GH, on Desperate Housewives and when he was The Mummy! I look forward to more Tuc and humor!

tuc looks like felicity huffman’s husband. The reaction on other message boards to tuc’s orientation is very whatever. It was really obvious that he’s gay. It’s not like he made an effort to hide it w/ a beard and w/ his mannerisms. But his announcement of his orientation could get oltl and himself some press.

Reading all these tolerant comments towards tuc is really reflective of the disparity between hollywood’s treatment and the media’s treatment of gay public figures compared to the treatment towards Asian americans. It’s not really surprising that there are more openly gay actors who are white who get roles on day soaps and night tv shows and films compared to Asian american actors. hollywood is very welcoming towards openly gay actors who are white. They get a lot of press. There’s a push for them from hollywood and entertainment media to get roles as leading men. Openly gay actor matt bomer… Read more »

In a once-in-a soap-lifetime event during the Covid-19 pandemic, the cast of As the World Turns will reunite for one night online for a virtual reading of the CBS daytime drama’s final episode that aired back 10 years ago this past September,

This livestream event is for a good cause and is brought to you by former ATWT cast member, Trent Dawson’s (Ex-Henry) theatre group The Katonah Classic Stage.  Dawson is the artistic director there.

Over 26 veteran cast members from ATWT, including Larry Bryggman, Don Hastings, Kathryn Hays, Elizabeth Hubbard, Michael Park and more are set to participate in the reading plus some surprise guests.

The show will be streamed  n The Locher Room YouTube channel, 0n Wednesday night, October 28th at 8 p.m. EST/5 p.m. PST, where fans will also  have the opportunity to comment and ask questions of the cast,

The event is asking for a $15 donation to be able to see it and you can click here for more info!

Working with Katonah Classic Stage (KCS), a professional, nonprofit theatre group an hour north from New York City, Dawson is hoping this event will help those in need.  KCS has access to outdoor performance space that can provide a safer, more  socially-distant experience for the artists and the audience. The fundraiser not only  applies to salaries, but to health care as well; without employment most artists are ineligible for health coverage during a time when such insurance is critically important.

So what do you think of getting these beloved stars from ATWT together for a good cause to relive and read the script of the final episode from Oakdale? Comment below.
