Hayden Goes Gay On Heroes

| Filed under: TV NewsHayden Panettiere


Heroes must be desperate for ratings, because the NBC series is throwing in some hot lesbo action to the storyline!

According to a press release sent out by the network, an upcoming episode of Heroes will see Hayden Panettiere's character, Claire, "[discovering] that her roommate Gretchen may have a hidden agenda."

…And that statement was accompanied by the image above.

They're not trying to conceal this plot twist at all, are they?

Do U think the lez addition will be seksi or is it sad ploy for ratings????

    sad ploy for ratings… ugh, it's just like all the zombie/vampire stuff. everyone want's a piece of that cake, it's soooo boring i'm falling asleep while typzzzzzzZZZZZzzzzzZZZZZZZZ -_-

    whats next a dancing lesbian couple in dancing with the stars? actually i think ellen degeneres & her wife might do just fine…

  5. 5

    Her character is the most boring one on the show. I guess they are trying to do this so they don't have to use their brains to figure out a way to kill off the indestructable girl. Gee, two girls kissing how exciting….Yawn.

  6. 6

    Who gives a shit what they're motivations are? Can't wait to see fine ass Hayden slobbering all over another chick. I hope they use tongue and there's more to it then just the still they released.

    Sad attempt

    Desperate!! They ruined her character! Just chop her ass up every week! The storylines are already stupid anyway.

    God it irritates me when tv shows, musicians or movies have to use girl on girl action to try to make money. Shouldn't they have more substance than having to rely on something so shallow? Now, if they want to have a gay or lesbian character, great, but don't use it as hype to get people to watch.

    Sad ploy. I've given up on Heroes.

    As a fan of heroes i can say that it's not a ploy for ratings. It's a funny and funky thing that happens to her in college by her roommate. If you watch the whole trailer (and if you actually watch the show) - you'll get it. heroes is beginning to get a little of the wall, but its still great. Always will be too. Yay for episode 4!!

    Re: Spindoc – You can kill Claire. Chop her head off.

    definitely a sad ploy for ratings! Is it just me or does every station try to copy an original idea b/c they want good ratings. Do they not realize that no one wants to c the same thing over and over again? You get bored with it after the second time around, not to mention the 3rd, 4th & 5th time!

    …in the year 2009, it seems a shame to me that two women kissing is newsworthy. It is simply a natural part of life. Gay, straight, bi, whatever. When this isn't news we will have achieved sexual fairness.

    Re: Long Dong Connery – Hey Connery,what's up dude?Going to the Wings Home opener tommorrow.I hope they get their shit together quick!

  20. 20

    Sad ploy.

  21. 21

    saw this coming - pretty pathetic - the show really has lost it…

  22. 22

    6 MONTHS AGO!!!!!! We have known this for about 6 months man!

  23. 23

    Who still watches this show anyways?

  24. 24

    Who cares? The show is actually reeeal good this year after 2 years of being shiteous….the end of last weeks episode ensures us more Sylar….and thats all that matters!!! More Sylar=better show

  25. 25

    Who wants to see a bunch of "heroes" having conversations? I wish people would fly more.

  26. 26

    Ratings. Ew.

  27. 27

    Most guys including my boyfriend will think it's seksi no matter whether it's a ploy for ratings or not. That was a idiotic question, Perez!

  28. 28

    How many of you fools are bashing this saying its sad while a few posts ahead most of you are defending Katy Perry saying how awesome she is. She did the exact same thing with "I kissed a girl". I understand the Perez gang being contradictory. That is the norm around here, but not all the commenters.

    Sorry this is very old news. TV Guide interviewed Hayden well over a month ago and this was brought up. It was even stated it would around episode 5 this season and who the kiss was going to be with. So this has been planned for sometime.

    How stupid. This show is so far gone there's no hope for a turnaround. That roommate girl is just plain creepy.

  31. 31

    only a kiss? thats it? lol

  32. 32

    Claire's roommate GRETCHEN was the little KID from that 90's show "THE NANNY" with Fran Dresser. It's unfortunate that she didn't turn out to be pretty. Well… most of these tv actors are cute when they're young but turn out to be ugly.

    Hayden is lucky that she's pretty… although it seems like she stopped growing at 16 cuz she's only 5 ft tall.

  33. 33

    Uhm.. Hayden is actually kinda cute but the other girl is just gross. I can't even remember her name. Well whatever the season has been pretty bad so far, this won't improve anything. (I'm actually a Heroes fan, but i just simply don't like this season as much as the ones before)

  34. 34

    i think it is sad when anybody stoops to throwing in gay scenes to try and get more attention. the thing is, is that it is not shocking or considered new and edgy anymore. people now a days are very open about their sexuality and it is not taboo anymore for it to be on tv. if anything i think it is disrespectful when they try and get ratings for a shitty tv show by exploitation.

  35. 35

    There was a press release done not too long ago (I want to say at Comic Con, but I might be lying) that said the girl-kiss was in response to overwhelming fan demands. Which is fine. The "scenes from the next episode" at the end of last week's show put this into context. Gretchen calls Claire's name, Claire turns around, Gretchen lays a snog on a shocked Claire. No big deal, if they end it there. Totally tasteless if they keep pursuing the storyline without any kind of respect to the GLBT community. Pretty sick of seeing girl-kissing used as a ratings grab.

  36. 36

    This is a sad ploy. Gretchen is not just weird but ugly. Eww. Im disgusted. Cant they fire their staff and get someone who can really write a show? Geez, the writers from the Hills even do better than the ones on Heroes.

  37. 37

    I don't think it's a "Sad ploy for ratings"? Talking like this will only perpetuate the common goal of acceptance for all people. I think it's ridiculous that everyone is making such a big deal out of this. Are we not in 2009? To say that this is a ploy for ratings is like saying that this couldn't be a real life scenario. So anytime a show brings anything gay into it,will it have this sort of response?? This microscope is quite annoying. I hope they deal with this properly on the show and then we can pass judgment.

  38. 38

    Obviously you don't watch the show. Anyone who does with a brain can see that was what Gretchen was going to pull in her storyline. They make it blatenly obvious I think. She screams college les and of course they will pull Claire into it. I have a feeling the next shot of this is Claire pulling back with a look of disgust, surprise, and sadness as that will ruin their "friendship" since she is obviously not bi on this show. But yeah, its a total ratings ploy. I don't care, I still LOVE this show.

    Re: twi-addict – Yep, or just sever the artery in her neck like that stick did in season 1.

    I loved Heros in the beginning but hate to use a term I have been using too much lately but this show has also jumped the shark. NBC is a train-wreck. I will continue to DVR/watch but my expectations are low. I would spend this season trying to tie up stories, and prepare for some sort of mega series finale.
    As to the Claire kiss who cares she is not going to go full on dike, its more about her denying someone who knows all to much about her power and the ramifications. Somebody call in the Haitian.

  41. 41

    Wow they must be desperate. I can't believe Heroes used to be good.

  42. 42

    None of this will matter if the show goes in the direction that has been suggested by many on many sci-fi spoiler boards…

    Hiro travels back in time to the diner where he met the waitress with her own special ability to remember everything she ever read. Hiro and her kinda sorta got to like each other but then evil Sylar killed her in the stock room! Well, Hiro kills Sylar before he kills the waitress; forever changing the timeline of the show and in effect, pushing a re-boot button!! We go back to season one!!

    Trick is now to see if the show stays on the air long enough for any of the above to transpire!!

  43. 43

    Ratings ploy. It's been used time and time again. OC was tanking they did that lesbian plot with Mischa Barton's character. Not surprised at all.

  44. 44

    Eww.. How smart! Like I would watch just to see two girls kissing!
