Color me SHOCKED! -- Tuc Watkins Comes Out Gay While Promoting 'One Life To Live'
Tuc Watkins Comes Out Gay While Promoting 'One Life To Live'
By On Top Magazine Staff; Published: April 26, 2013
While promoting the return of the soap One Life To Live, actor Tuc Watkins on Friday came out gay.
The 46-year-old actor is best know for his roles playing David Vickers on One Life To Live and Bob Hunter on the ABC nighttime soap Desperate Housewives.
During on appearance on MARIE, the new syndicated talk show hosted by Marie Osmond, Watkins said his Desperate Housewives character paralleled this own life in several way.
"I played a gay man who was married to his husband, who was trying to adopt a kid," Watkins said. "And in real life, at this same time, I'm a gay single man who was trying to have a kid through surrogacy. So, life and art were imitating each other."
"Did you get the idea from playing that character?" Osmond asked.
"No, I did not get the idea to have kids from playing a character on TV."
"But I mean, did it stimulate the idea? Or the concept of it?"
"The idea was already there," Watkins answered. "When I was young, I knew three things. I knew I was gay. I knew one day I was going to be a dad. And I knew that Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory was going to be the best movie of all time. So far, I've been right about all three."
He's been out for years! He has/had a thing for muscular black guys. I think he lives in the ritzy "Gay" building in Manhattan. I saw him a couple of years ago walking on Houston Street in NYC and he still looks good. Goofy/cute face and very well built. David and Dorian were always my favorite couple on OLTL. Love, love, love him.
He's never come out in the press. I was shocked about the twins. Curtis is Tuc's birth name. I don't care for "Catchen".
What is "Catchen," R6?
The name of one of his twins, R7
I'm not a native English speaker, but doesn't "comes out gay" (without the "as") sound a little strange? It sounds like someone put him in the washing machine with the wrong colors.
OP, there are AT MINIMUM three other threads on this. Did you not take five seconds to fucking look before you posted?
Fucking hell, now we have third world grammar freaks correcting threads???

That could be a possibility during the 37 minutes a day that the DL search function actually works.
R9, I'm just going to say this once. That would be "gray," not "gay."
Color me SHOCKED-is that a new collaboration between Color Me Badd and Michelle Shocked,maybe?

Googling "Datalounge" and the name of the topic works miracles.
Are there any OLTL threads? Don't forget the show starts on OWN this week - 2pm.
Oh put this thread back to sleep, right where it belongs. Who cares?
r17, you care enough to enter and comment.Pass it on by if you have such a problem.
Color me bored, smartass!
Why the heck is OWN showing the same episodes as yesterday?
Can this be the new thread to discuss Andy T.'s feets?
Is that old rumor true about Tuc and Nathan Fillion?
Pellegrino thread deleted? I have never understood what the hell the problem is with a soap thread.
We can discuss Jeffrey's tattoo in here.
OWN is only showing a half hour of each every day. I wonder if it will pick up the show with next season.
"Tuc"? What a dopey name.
Have any of the men on the show been showing their feets or flip-flops lately?
Coming out on Marie Osmond show? Really? She is extremely homophobic.
Who is the fan favorite returning?
I love me some Victoria Sleestak.
How ironic that Oprah/OWN would not commit to airing OLTL and AMC, yet now the network's biggest success is a half hour soap opera. I really wish there was more promotion for them.
It's been quite a week for us with Jack's swinging noodle through his running shorts and Cutter walking around in tight boxer briefs. I may have to watch this week's shows all over again.
OMG, which episode had Jack's swinging noodle r32?!?
Josh Kelly is hung.
This week's first episode has Jack's huge horsecock.
How do you find the previews for AMC and OLTL?
I typed in promos in Hulu's search box and nothing came up.
Tuc and JPL? Really?
Like it was a secret?
That's Tuc doing the voiceover for the clip at R51.
Here's what JPL's been doing since he got dumped by the Fath (his imdb page lists NOTHING since OLTL left ABC, so he's playing house husband while Tuc goes off to work):
I don't believe Tuc and JPL are an item at all.
Tuc has better taste in men.
The new bad guy on OLTL is Allison Perkins brother!
I just giggled like crazy when I saw that, R57. Will Barbara Garrick return? Will we see Vic drooling in her bed once more?
According to the villain played by Ron Raines, sister Allison is holding Victor for the bad guys again while they lure Todd into their trap. The triskelion cartel needs both brothers. They are also drugging Clint to act nuts.
There is supposed to be a special guest next week, a fan favorite for the cliffhanger finale. I am guessing it will be Babs Garrick!
Tuc is JPL's mentor.
If JPL is so gay why the bearding for years with Farrah? None of the other actors were made to beard. Nic Roebuck was married to a man and although it was swept under the rug he was never forced to beard with anyone.
Tuc and JP are just very good friends.
The furry twink playing Jack had a massive hard-on in his scenes with Aunt Dorian and the teacher last week.
That or he is very amply endowed.
When did Andrew T. Get "furry"?
I used to think that the JPL/FF relationship was fake, but they were together way too long. That's not to say he couldn't be gay or bisexual.
Any news about any of the Ford brothers and/or their feets?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
