At some point, even Kristen Stewart gave up the shell game.
It becomes so hard to juggle all your stories and pseudo relationships and everything else for the media and social media and interviews and red carpets that you just say f**k it and come out.
This actor needs to do just that.
I have written about this actor a couple of times in the past about his closet struggles, but he has taken this to a whole new level.
Foreign born. Tall. Good looking.
For the most part in his career he has struggled.
That is until a few years ago when he got the lead in this pay cable series that shows no signs of ending for the foreseeable future.
Suddenly his secret life actually mattered.
I have written before about his people scrubbing his social media clean of all those weekend flings with guys.
They think he needs to be a virile heterosexual to keep getting these types of roles.
Last year around this time, his female co-star got tired of being called his girlfriend because they weren’t.
It wasn’t even a bearding thing.
His people just picked her and leaked story after story about how they were a couple.
She forced our actor to do a joint interview and in that interview declare they were not a couple.
Her boyfriend was getting really upset.
Meanwhile, our actor spent much of the spring and early summer traveling the world with his boyfriend but he is always referred to as a friend in photos.
After this travel spree, the boyfriend was pushed out of the way because too many people were asking too many questions.
The boyfriend was asked to scrub his social media which he did.
Imagine just scrubbing your entire life because your boyfriend can’t admit who he is and wants you to play along.
So, you need a new beard.
Who do you pick?
Well, if you are the people of our actor, they found someone who needs the publicity to reignite her failed acting career.
A former soap actress who thought she was way better than soaps who found out that was not the case.
An actress who has a boyfriend.
Whether she started dating that boyfriend while she was still married is up for debate.
She had a lot of success in soaps.
Not so much outside them.
Her last best shot was some network show where she had a recurring role before the show was quickly canceled.
With a boyfriend on board with the game, our actress started popping up on the actor’s social media.
Simultaneously, the couple would get randomly photographed at events and random places.
Who was taking these photos?
Not fans. Nope.
It was producers of the pay cable show and PR people and voila they would show up on message boards for the show.
Most of the time she lives with her boyfriend in the US.
About once a month or so though she is called to action and will show up somewhere with the actor.
Oh, and hey, get “randomly” photographed.
She did accompany him to a big award show but stayed at a hotel while he stayed at his home.
She flew home the morning after the awards with a nice big payday in her bank account.
Her big problem is she can’t stop her boyfriend or her own family from posting things to their own social media.
It looks really strange when she is supposed to be in a loving relationship with the actor and her friends and family and the friends and family of her boyfriend post loving photos to social media.
The game is crumbling and soon, the masterminds will have to find a new beard.
Don’t worry, they are the same masterminds behind the person listed in the first paragraph.
