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."

Oh dear.

Hasn't he been out for a while?

this certainly provides publicity for MARIE

by Anonymousreply 404/27/2013

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".

by Anonymousreply 604/27/2013

What is "Catchen," R6?

by Anonymousreply 704/27/2013

The name of one of his twins, R7

by Anonymousreply 804/27/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2508/07/2013

"Tuc"? What a dopey name.

by Anonymousreply 2608/07/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 3108/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3208/08/2013

OMG, which episode had Jack's swinging noodle r32?!?

Josh Kelly is hung.

This week's first episode has Jack's huge horsecock.

Who is this hot new Australian cop, and has he done any underpants or feets scenes?

Tuc is currently fucking JP Saponski - check his twitter feed.

Seponski is straight as an arrow.

by Anonymousreply 3808/09/2013

Tuc is obviously close with John-Paul and Josh Kelly. Doesn't mean they are a couple.

by Anonymousreply 3908/09/2013

Whaaaatt...I remember watching him on Desperate Housewives, googling him and finding out hes gay back in the day. He was never in the closet!

by Anonymousreply 4008/09/2013

His babies are adorable.

by Anonymousreply 4108/09/2013

And I was hoping that "Tuc" meant hiding his junk when he was in full drag.

Oh, week. Gotta get out of my van.

What is the gossip on JPL now that he has ended it with the Fath?

Do they have a promo for AMC ?

AMC promo

And another OLTL promo

by Anonymousreply 5108/10/2013


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?

by Anonymousreply 5408/11/2013

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):

by Anonymousreply 5508/11/2013

I don't believe Tuc and JPL are an item at all.

Tuc has better taste in men.

by Anonymousreply 5608/11/2013

The new bad guy on OLTL is Allison Perkins brother!

by Anonymousreply 5708/12/2013

I just giggled like crazy when I saw that, R57. Will Barbara Garrick return? Will we see Vic drooling in her bed once more?

by Anonymousreply 5808/12/2013

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!

by Anonymousreply 5908/12/2013

Tuc is JPL's mentor.

by Anonymousreply 6008/12/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 6108/12/2013

Tuc and JP are just very good friends.

by Anonymousreply 6208/12/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 6308/12/2013

When did Andrew T. Get "furry"?

by Anonymousreply 6408/12/2013

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?
