Today's Blind Items - The Underage Switch

The crazy thing about all of this is that someone decided that putting out a story that this foreign born A- list mostly television actor from a very hit show dating someone barely old enough to drive was a good idea. They further had the bright idea to say the couple had been dating since she was not even close to being able to drive. Why? His people and the almost network have huge plans for the actor and they think it would be a really bad idea for him to show his true colors. They think that he will ruin the whole heartthrob image if he comes out. They think that he shouldn't be advertising the relationship he has with that A- list pro hockey player who plays in the same town where the show is filmed. His people don't think it would be a good idea to show the condo the pair share and the fact it is just a one bedroom apartment. They prefer he hide the photos of them together meeting his parents this past summer in his home country. So, someone came up with the idea that getting the world to think he is dating someone underage is way better than the truth.

Only pedos think "dating" an underage girl is better than dating a male adult. Jesus Christ. I hope he comes screaming out of the closet.

roque said...

KJ Apa? There have been rumblings about his sexuality before, and Riverdale films in Vancouver, one of the most rabid hockey cities. No clue who the actress is though. I know we ask this every blind like this but WHY in this day and age, don't people in the entertainment business just come out?

I can see why they would do this, even if I don't agree with it. Riverdale appeals to teen girls. KJ Apa is a heartthrob to teen girls. Giving him an underage beard seems creepy to us, but to the audience of admirers it makes them feel like they have a "chance." So they keep Apa's real self a secret to boost their money train, pandering even more to the target audience. I can see the logic, even, as an adult, I disagree with it.

Dynasty is filmed in Vancouver?

Riverdale can have chicks kissing on screen but they can't let a homosexual cast member live his life out in the open.

I'm gonna book a trip on the next flight leaving this planet. I'm done here.

trufflepig said...

I just googled this KJ Apa guy. He's 21, in other words, barely an adult himself! So what if he has a 16-year-old girlfriend (or 'girlfriend').

When I was 16, a classmate of mine was dating a 23-year-old guy and no one thought it was a big deal. Her parents even let her go on vacation with him and everything.

Marianne Elba said...

Wait...They think he's better off looking like a pedophile than a gay man?

DDonna Tarttty said...

Melvin's got it. 16 year old hits their demo sweet spot, lets the teen fans fantasize that it could be them.

orangesoda said...

I had a classmate at 15 that was going out with a 20 year old. Everyone called him a peado then. Can't say I disagree now.

Spider Rico said...

I'll preface this comment with that there is nothing wrong with being gay - however there are many many disturbed gay men who are very powerful in Hollywood with very twisted ideas. They are just as sick and perverted as the hetero old coots who ran studios in the early days. Sickness and mental illness is not bound by gender, race, or religion.

Geeljire said...

Out everybody
Enough of this queeny pageantry shit in 2018

Sixteen is the age of consent in 31 US states. It's gonna be kinda hard to convince people that something that's legal in most states (and most of those foreign countries we're always being told are better than us) is appallingly immoral if you happen to be on the other side of a line. That doesn't only apply to smoking weed.

If we really want people to be shocked by this kind of thing (and I'm all for that), here's a crazy idea: go back to saying it's bad for teens to have sex in the first place. If she were banging a couple 16-year-old classmates, the official line today would be, "You young adults got enough condoms? Have fun exploring your sexuality!" Can't have it both ways.

It's funny that producers think that 16 year old girls would be disappointed that their favorite actor is gay. They have obviously never heard of fanfiction, and that the bulk of it is teen girls writing about gay male couples.

Trust me, the fan base will not go anywhere. Just come out.

ttellapttam said...

I never would’ve guessed he’s gay. I find this kinda hard to believe. He’s either not gay or a much better actor than i’ve given him credit for.

A dumb idiot said...

Nikolay Goldobin pings the gaydar a bit and he's only 22

Kevin said...

A- list pro hockey player? That really limits things to a couple of Canucks right now.

Geeljire said...

Sex is fun
But not illegitimate unwanted children
I think teaching responsibility is more important than proper condom use in a weird communal classroom setting
(Note: I did not say abstinence only)

Liz Pop said...

Hey Truffle, your friend's parents weren't doing there job. It's called "parenting" not "being hip with the cool kids". I proudly raise my hand as being the uncool parent who didn't let my kids date outside their age group when they were teenagers.

Right on orangesoda.

Apa has been under fire for liking sexist instagram posts, so maybe if he came out as gay, it would open the door even further to a feminist backlash.

Over half the characters on Riverdale are bi or gay, so it is really hypocritical of this show of all shows to force an actor in the closet for PR

Benjamin Friend said...

Okay, but who is the hockey player??

Sara, Making It Work said...

Sounds an awful lot like what happened on GLEE.

Viking Song said...

The majority of teen girls no longer dream of dating their idols. They want to see their idols hooking up with their male co-stars. Slash (gay characters/celebrities paired together sexually) fan fiction is the most popular genre of fan fiction. It's been like this for a long while now and it's fucking weird.

There's no shame in being gay, but when fan girls would rather their heart throbs were gay than date them then you know there is something fucking weird going on..

LEANNE NORMAN said...

I agree with you Sara lot's of teenage girls and grown women (me included) are really in to shipping and fan fiction, look at the one direction, 5 seconds of summer and the BTS fandoms more of their fans would rather see them dating one of the other members than any girl. Same thing with many youtubers like Dan and Phil or Joe and Casper. The Riverdale audience have a similar audience to Supernatural and Teen wolf both had a big shipping fan base.
Whoever's advising him is really out of touch with the modern world.

Admin User said...

@roque: “I think I’m just waiting for the right time, right girl. I’m pretty busy at the moment. I don’t know how much I have to offer to someone right now.”

how about never, does never work for you?

LEANNE NORMAN said...

@Viking Song I don't think it's weird it's safer in a way to crush on guy's who are gay or at least you think/hope they are. The history of teen heart throbs who's fans have hated their girlfriends go's right back to The Beatles, it's much easier to accept that you won't ever be together because he's gay rather than comparing yourself to the model/actress/singer he's dating feeling like your not pretty enough or skinny enough or whatever else.
It's much easier to analyse song lyrics and convince yourself that it's about another band member and be excited when they make eye contact during that song and convince yourself it means something than to go hoping that he makes eye contact with you falls madly in love and spend the rest of his life writing songs about you.

Brayson87 said...

Nah, people like Archie for his good heart and strong moral compass, who cares what the actor does off screen. People watch the Star Trek reboots without thinking of Kirk and Spock banging it out.

Although it would explain the sexual tension in that wrestling episode, perchance to DILF, Archie?

Who cares, what people want is more Dark Betty! Go full dark Betty!

Cee Kay said...

FSS people, DATING A 16-YEAR-OLD IS NOT PEDOPHILIA! Google a damned dictionary once in a while already. I believe that 16 is the age of consent in Canada. Nothing to see here, pearl-clutchers.

Geeljire said...

And no wonder hockey coaches are always raping kids and getting away with it

For fucks sake this is shifting the window until "well why should it be so that a 12 year old can't "
Sick shit

You're a minor until 18. Statutory rape is real.

Gonna roll with the Archie guess, stumped as to which Canuck this is... but I did find a photo of Archie and Mitch Marner together but he plays for the Laughs not Vancouver. I don’t know how Enterns ranking system works for atheletes?

Crazycatlady said...

Asked my husband - he is speculating Brock Boeser - or one of the other alternate captains? Boeser has played in the 2016 world juniors - doubt he got A - list from playing with the Canucks, he is an alternate captain as well.

Nordh said...

Crazycatlady: Well, he was the all star-MVP this season so A- is not impossible.

Crazycatlady said...

🤷🏻‍♀️ I be stumped. Not a hockey gal either so all my guesses are shots in the dark.

Melissa Lyn said...

Is this about Jerry Sienfeld? He did shit like that. Super creepy dude.

Melody Clark said...

Brayson87, I hate to tell you this, but Kirk/Spock was among the first slash fandoms.

Geeljire said...

Brayson wasn't even born yet!

BkWurm1 said...

If it was Apa wouldn't he be an " A- list mostly television actor from a very hit show" on an almost Network? And is Riverdale really a "very" hit show?

Cherry Stiles said...

@Cee Kay, Hahahah! "Pearl clutchers!" No kidding!

Dominique Ray said...

16 and 21 isn’t really a pedophile relationship. Not my ideal but I’d rather my son date a 16yr Old than be gay. The std statistics is 70% Hiv patients in America is gay men. they’re more out to contract hiv by their way of having sex ~ liberal doctors will tell you that. I guess we know why god was hard on Israelites? Imagine a world that followed biblical teachings. No stds.. no single parenting. No violent. Sorry but God’s way is best.

KitchenGirl said...

If its KJ Apa I think they're *really* misreading the room. Teenage girls love nothing more than a cute boy-meets-boy story, I'm telling you. They would explode into candy hearts if they found out he had himself a hunky boyfrain.

Unknown said...

Why do people assume it's kj?

S'over It said...

he's probably not coming out to protect the BF. Pro Hockey is still very far behind when it comes to acceptance.
