The Bold and the Beautiful dropped a major bomb on its viewers this week with a shocking plot twist. It revealed that one of its lead characters is transgender. The network claims the long-running soap opera is the only current show on broadcast or cable TV to include a transgender character as part of the regular cast.
Actress Karla Mosley plays fan-favorite Maya Avant who’s romantically linked with Forrester heir Rick (Jacob Young). Her sister recently arrived in town and has been blackmailing her but viewers were left in the dark as to why. This week, her little sister revealed that Maya was once her brother named Myron.
“I didn’t expect daytime to be taking on a story like this,” Mosley said to US Magazine. But after she picked up her jaw from the floor, she’s been researching, consulting GLAAD, and trying to do the story justice.
I one hundred percent agree with Mosley. Had I been a viewer of the show, my jaw would’ve been on the ground as well. Check out the emotional scene between the sisters below.
“”It is about people respecting other people’s differences and their uniqueness. In the end, we all want to be loved, and in order to love someone else you first have to love yourself. If you are transgender, gay, straight, it doesn’t matter. It’s about finding love in life. This is a love story.” – Bradley Bell, B&B’s executive producer & head writer
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Even more true, depending where in the world you are.
What is deemed attractive in North America might not be so in Africa or Asia. With more guys buying skincare products, caring about their physiques and undergoing cosmetic surgery, men have become equally as concerned with their looks as their female counterparts.
Buzzfeed gathers an international cast of gorgeous male models to show just how drastically the physical attributes of the “ideal man” vary across 12 different countries. For instance in Brazil, “Germanic features” with tan skin is lusted after while skin lightening is popular in India and soft features in South Korea are appealing.

Max’s Underpants is quickly becoming my favorite YouTube web series. A weekly dose of model Max Emerson is exactly what the doctor prescribed.
The 26-year-old underwear sensation is back to share more tips with aspiring underwear models. It was all about camouflaging visible penis lines previously. This time, it’s about working with straight models. Like how not to get a boner when your genitalia is rubbing up on them and other insightful tidbits.
Check out the latest episode below which features the not-so-straight openly-gay Colby Melvin and Willam Belli.
If James Franco’s sexuality confused you before, this latest interview will have you scratching your head even more. The 36-year-old actor addresses his sexual orientation by having his straight persona interview his gay one for FourTwoNine magazine. In essence, Franco is ‘gay’ in his art, but ‘straight’ in his life.
“Straight” James asked himself, “Are you f–king gay or what?,” to which “gay” James replied, “Well, I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I’m also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I’m straight. So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means whom you have sex with, I guess I’m straight. In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with. Sailors would fuck guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren’t considered gay.”
James has several films coming out in 2015, including three this Spring alone- True Story, Everything Will Be Fine and I Am Michael. I’m most looking forward to the latter where he plays a real life former gay activist who denounces homosexuality and becomes a Christian pastor.
Check out more riveting questions answered by Franco asked by himself below, along with photos snapped by Damon Baker.
Personally, I couldn’t do it but I appreciate anyone with the guts to propose on national television. More power to ya.
On today’s episode of Let’s Make A Deal, a man dressed in lederhosen gets down on bended knee to pop the big question to his unsuspecting boyfriend. The reaction on his face is adorably precious.
The crowd get raucous once they realize what just happened. Host Wayne Brady serenades the newly-engaged couple with a surprise performance. Watch all the action go down below.
I first noticed Miles Teller as the adorable sidekick in the Footloose remake. With a bit of muscle packed on now, the 28-year-old goes from cute to smokin’ hot. It’s amazing what a little ripped action will do.
Teller underwent a body transformation to play five-time World Champion Boxer Vinny Pazienza in Bleed For This. Pazienza famously recovered after injuring himself in a near-fatal car accident in 1991. At the time, he was told he might never walk again. Not only did he get back on his feet but headed back into the ring also.
To achieve a fighter physique, Teller trained with Freddie Roach who’s also worked with boxer Manny Pacquiao. Check out below Miles debuting his new look on The Tonight Show.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I’d rotate up this Marry, F*ck, Bitch Slap post featuring a trio of hot Irish studs originally posted back in 2012. It was long before people were lusting over Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey. #justsaying
With a long list of sexy men hailing from Ireland including Cillian Murphy, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Daniel Day-Lewis, Pierce Brosnan and Stuart Townsend to name a few, narrowing it down to just three proved very difficult. There’s something very attractive about that charming Irish rogue these men possess. In the end, I chose Colin Farrell, Michael Fassbender and Jamie Dornan to represent the rolling hills of Ireland. I’m sure you won’t complain about my choices. They’re all sex symbols and worth lusting after. Get to know the men in more detail below.
You know how the game works. Pick one to marry and live in wedded bliss, and another to have a hot passionate one night stand with, while the other is the subject of your bitch slapping. Happy choosing everyone.
Before I begin this post I have to let you know a little something about my TV watching: I will give everything a chance if I have interest in it. Everything gets 3 episodes to catch me before I make a decision on if I want to continue watching it or not. After last night’s 3rd episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 7 I can safely say that I think I am over drag race. After 7 years on the air with some of the most incredible queens I’ve ever seen doing some of the funniest and most entertaining challenges, I believe that RuPaul’s Drag Race is on its way out. Gone are the days of really great one liners, cliques forming to create drama, original challenges, and above it all integrity. The last one may seem like it doesn’t belong but I’m going to explain to you what I mean.
