Over the weekend, speculation over a blind item ended up taking up momentum and it became widespread "knowledge" that Glee's newbie character Blaine, played by Darren Criss, would actually end up being bi instead of gay.
Ryan Murphy, co-creator of the show, got wind of this rumor and decided to share with us exclusively the truth of the matter. In an email he just shot over to us, Ryan explained:
"Blaine is NOT bi. He is gay, and will always be gay. I think it's very important to young kids that they know this character is one of them."
Agreed! Blaine's character has already been established and to veer off from that would just seem like a ratings ploy to us.
Besides, we know a lot of kids are really rooting for Klaine (that's Kurt and Blaine, aka Chris Colfer and Darren, for those of you who don't speak Gleek) to get together before season's end. Best not to screw with the hopes and dreams of Gleeks!
