Well at least one gay's confirmed for 'Newylwed'

by Jeremy Hooper

So you know that revamped "Newlywed Game" that, by virtue of the seemingly DOMA-complying wording in their eligibility requirements, sounds as if married gay folks might be prevented from becoming contestants? Well despite repeated requests, we have yet to hear anything back from folks associated with the show. Which, quite honestly, is a little annoying.

200807221511We have, however, been reminded of a fact that either appeases our mind a bit or raises an extra layer of concern: Out lesbian Judy Gold is serving as the host of that production. See the announcement at TV Squad:

Hosts announced for The Dating Game and The Newlywed Game [TV Squad]

So what's the deal? Is this production, in actuality, going to be really, really, really gay? Judy's orientation is quite prevalently peppered into her routines, so we know she's not going to be shying away about her own relationships. So is it that the wording of the eligibility requirements was simply unfortunate, and we'll be seeing whole episodes dedicated to newly-wedded queer couples? Or is that Judy is on-board to offset the absence of contestants?

Well, we would say to stay tuned for the answers to your questions. But judging by the chosen silence from those who could quell all fears and answer all questions, that is a promise we can't make.
