'90210' Spoiler Alert: And the hunk coming out is...

… Teddy (a.k.a. the shirtless Adonis on the far right). My source asked me not to spoil the big reveal until after the show’s third-season premiere on Sept. 13—hence the speculative item I ran last month— but then Trevor Donovan (all but) let the cat out of the bag yesterday when he tweeted the following:

“I read all your tweets and know you are all curious about the ‘gay’ character this season. Let me say, gay or straight, relationships are relationships. Everyone goes through the same kind of troubles and joys. A gay storyline will have an added issue of dealing with judgment from others. Acceptance, by family, friends, society, and self is just one of the concerns the character will be going through. It is a part of life, and it should be portrayed. I was told, and am confident, [that] the storyline will be written very well and the change in the character will be organic, NOT overnight. It’s going to be a great season 3. I look forward to chatting with you all as we progress.”

Gotta love/hate Twitter! (BTW, even though Donovan didn’t actually come out and say Teddy is gay, I can confirm that he is. I can also confirm that the name of the actor playing his first boyfriend can be found here.)

Thoughts? Surprised? Did you peg Teddy as the closet case all along? Hit the comments!

    Well he doesnt actually say its him. Maybe he thought he was being vague enough.

    • Leon

      But Michael knows that it’s Teddy anyway so Michael wouldn’t say it was Teddy if it wasn’t

    • Jersey Jeff

      I am excited to see how this goes, it is most intresting that they never hire Gay actors for these parts, I have a hard time believing they could not find a qualified gay actor in holywood.

      • Erin

        Uhh….it’s acting! You pretend that you’re something you’re not.

      • Lois Stinks!

        @ Erin: The point that he was trying to make is whenever there is a casting call for a gay character, most often times gay actors are never considered for the role!

      • Dusan

        Your logic of gay casting is the same as saying that african americans couldn’t pay Romeo and Juliet cause they are italians!

    • lorna

      What a stupid show. Melrose was SO much better.

      • d

        melrose SUCKED

      • Chanelle

        sucked isnt big enough.. no words for how bad this show was. maybe the original was okay

  • Entertainment2u-Twitter

    how’d he get all that out in 140 characters? ha

    ah — multiple tweets I guess.

    • Leon

      He used Twitlonger.com duh

  • Oslo

    • Jersey Jeff

      Me too!

      • jk

        I hope you fruits get your chance, and then get AIDS.

      • RamPort

        I posted something for jk. I hope he reads it. Just by what he said..just read my posting under RamPort.

      • Stephanie

        Mmmm…. Fruit. Got any strawberries? Maybe a banana? They both sound good right about now.

  • Samantha

    lol not surprising.

  • EWsMom

    Didn’t know this show was still on…I thought it was canceled?

    Oh well…yawn.

    • jared4ever

      It’s what’s called a Hail Mary. As if anyone really cares about whether a character is gay anymore.

  • M

    Well I hope it’s organic and not overnight because so far he seems the least likely to be gay given that his character is a total womanizer.

    • Kris

      actually, in many cases it’s the raging womanizers that are gay. instead of coming out they overcompansate by sleeping with as many women as possible so they wont be accused of being gay.

    • Jessica

      Funny, I thought the exact opposite. I thought it was a no-brainer he was the one who’d be coming out…and…here we are.

      • d

        aren’t you brilliant.

  • stu

    my bet is on a 3way to boost the ratings before it goes down the tubes w/ Melrose.

  • Kermonk

    Is that new 90210? Didn’t know it was still going.

  • Topher

    Can we focus on why 90210 is not doing anything on 9-02-10?

    • julie

      thanks for the laugh

    • James

      Trevor announced on twitter that he’ll be participating on the festivities of the real Beverly Hills 90210 this coming 9.02.10

  • ggny

    Thank God him and Silver where horrible together

    • Kris

      Amen. Put Silver/Dixon back together immediately!

      • googliezoo

        Ick! Dixon’s such a douche. Silver needs someone new.

      • lizzi

        I’m agreed Sixon FTW

      • Tony

        I really do hope Silver and Dixon gets back together.

    • em

      I agree! Didn’t like Silver when she was with him for some reason

      • matH

        c’mon it was season 1 Silver/dixon have changed now.
        BRING BACK Sixon seriously who cares about Ivy?
        Dixon/Silver are soulmates they were first love for each other they need to have a 2nd chance :)

      • Topher

        I hated Dixon and Silver together. Was warming up to Teddy and Silver though… apparently he wasn’t.

      • Jess

        I’m not sure how “first love” and “soul mates” necessarily correlate. That kinda attitude has lead to a higher than 50% divorce rate among young married couples.

  • Kris

    I dont think it matters anyway. Everyone knew it was him and the ones that pretended not to were Teddy/Silver fans who couldn’t face the truth.

  • Adam

    im not really surprised that its teddy sometimes when a guy over compensate by having sex with lots of girls its usually trying to prove to himself that he is not gay.

    • Jess

      Maybe an over generalization. At least the “usually” part. The “sometimes” might be more accurate. I think it does happen. But probably not enough to be called “usually.”

  • Sam

    As much as I wish it were Matt Lanter (that would be a HOLLA! moment), this is fine too.

  • shoot, i may have to watch 90210 now. dammit.

  • Alex

    Why such a big deal about an irrelevant show?

    • Jason

      Why waste your time writing about a show you consider irrelevant? Wait . . . can you hear that? It’s the sound of no one giving a sh-t.

      • Jess

        I’ve always wondered why people are so negative toward anyone who dares to post a negative comment on a board. Aren’t we all allowed to have an opinion. Just because someone disagrees with you doesn’t make your own opinion any less relevant…why get so uptight about it unless you’re defensive?
