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!

Not really.

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 has film roles and is a lead char who charms a lot of women on his night tv show. Openly gay actors tend to get shielded from criticism from the entertainment press. Openly lesbian and gay actors from glee and openly gay actor from new normal never get asked and criticized abt the racially offensive jokes on their tv shows. There was no backlash from entertainment media for nph’s music video mocking Indian customs and religious beliefs. Openly gay actors are obviously very welcome among hollywood. This coming out interview w/ tuc reflects that sentiment. Yet the very few Asian american public personalities are treated w/ hostility and openly bashed by the media and hollywood. Jeremy Lin is the most popular Asian american athlete. Yet “professional analysts” from sports media and even Houston commentators openly bash his athleticism. They would not denigrate his athletic talents if he was African american and especially if he was white. The sports media loves to call him stupid. A graduate from Harvard is stupid? Sports media bashes Jeremy’s iq and athleticism bec sports media doesn’t want Asian americans like Jeremy Lin to succeed. While hollywood is even worse. This hollywood executive mentioned that he’d cast tom cruise if they made a movie abt Jeremy Lin. That’s stupid and typical of hollywood. Tons of films abt Asian american fictional chars and Asian american people get cast w/ white actors. hollywood and sports media openly bash Asian americans and prefer very little Asian american representation. Yet sports media like espn write articles abt how closeted athletes should announce that they’re gay. Even sports are more welcoming towards gay athletes compared to Asian american athletes! It’s the same thing w/ bullying. Bullying of gays and lesbians is such a hollywood and media issue. Yet Asian american students are the most bullied. More than 51% of Asian american students as reported by huffington post are bullied. This makes Asian american students the most bullied group. Heck Asian american news reporter Ann Curry was openly bullied and humiliated when she told the audience on air that she was fired. nbc would never bully its openly lesbian journalist and tell her to announce on air she was fired bec nbc would be called homophobic. But nbc didn’t mind bullying Ann Curry bec the media and hollywood openly bash Asian americans. How can there be a list film actors who are… Read more »

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
