Now that was a twist in the story that NO ONE was expecting!
But we're so glad it did!
Fans of the show The Bold and the Beautiful saw some television history get made this past Wednesday when the soap show provided a shocking revelation!
It happened when Karla Mosley's character Maya Avant was confronted by her sister character played by Reign Edwards.
Edwards' character Nicole says to Maya at one point:
"You're not my sister, Maya. You're not Maya at all. You're Myron, my brother."
Once the transgender revelation happened, fans of the show on social media went up in arms to express their surprise and amazement, and the person in charge of providing the creative storylines on the show believes that it's a good thing everyone seems to be talking about this latest surprise in its storyline!
"The transgender story we are telling on ‘The Bold and the Beautiful' is important because it is about tolerance. It is about people respecting other people's differences and their uniqueness. In the end, we all want to be loved and in order to love someone else you first have to love yourself. If you are transgender, gay, straight, it doesn't matter. It's about finding love in life. This is a love story."
And here's what CBS Entertainment's senior vice president of daytime Angelica McDaniel said:
"Daytime has a great history of storytelling that involves important social issues. The producers have developed a beautiful story here, and are committed to telling it in a way that is responsible, truthful and authentic."
We think it's fantastic that this famous show is keeping its social commentary fresh, and it's wonderful how this long-running show is still able to find ways to do that!
Way to go to The Bold and the Beautiful!!!
Hopefully this trailblazing move will bring more transgender storylines to television because everyone's voice deserves to be heard!!!
