Colton Underwood, the former NFL player who was famous for being a virgin while starring on Season 23 of ABC's The Bachelor, came out as gay on Wednesday in an emotional interview with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, who herself came out as a lesbian in 2013.
Underwood, shaking with emotion, said:
I've ran from myself for a long time, I've hated myself for a long time and I'm — gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it.
I got into a place, for me in my personal life, that was dark and bad and I can list a bunch of different things, but they'd all be excuses ... I got to a place where I didn't think I was ever going to share this. I would've rather died than say, I'm gay.
He attempted suicide:
There was a moment in L.A. when I woke up and I didn't think I was gonna wake up. I didn't have the intentions of waking up — and I did. And I think for me, that was like my wake-up call of, like, This is your life. Take back control.
The executive producers of The Bachelor reacted with support, saying via a statement:
We are so inspired by Colton Underwood’s courage to embrace and pursue his authentic self. As firm believers in the power of love, we celebrate Colton’s journey in the LGBTQIA+ community every step of the way.
Underwood has had a bumpy ride since the show ended, including a broken engagement with Bachelor contestant Cassie Randolph. He apologized to her during the interview, admitting that having feelings for her made coming to terms with being gay all the messier.
That relationship ended, and was complicated when Randolph filed for a restraining order against Underwood for stalking. It was resolved amicably.
Watch a long clip after the jump:
Towleroad's got Omarosa's reply to Robin Roberts saying “bye, Felicia” to her firing — and it's pretty ridiculous that Omarosa says it constitutes a black woman civil war when she's never done anything for black people and has never, ever been civil.
You'll recall that journalist April Ryan was the person to call out Omarosa's B.S. she was fired. Refresher:
Keep reading for a HILARIOUS video ...
Omarosa, who a year ago was seething that all of Trump's enemies would be forced to bow down to him, is now — in the wake of being dragged from the White House — painting herself as a truth-teller who witnessed disturbing things at the White House.
Omarosa says she has a profound story to tell, but Robin Roberts says it's more like a story to sell. Watch the normally unflappable anchor slip in a much-needed “bye, Felicia” ...
Some of these estimated salaries of top TV stars are pretty mind-blowing. I knew Judy Sheindlin made a bundle, but $47M a year?
And when it comes to episodic TV, how'd you like to knock down $1M per episode to do the backbreaking work Kaley Cuoco does on Big Bang Theory?
