‘Young and the Restless’: Are Kyle Abbott and Theo Vanderway Ex-Lovers?

Young and the Restless spoilers tease a huge secret between Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) and Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson). It seems like Theo might be Kyle’s ex based on hints dropped in recent episodes of the CBS sudser. Is Y&R about to drop a huge bombshell about Kyle Abbott’s NYC party days? Are he and Theo Vanderway “fluid”? There’s many recent clues that could have a huge impact on Kyle’s future if they play out this way.

At the very least, Theo might have a guy crush on his former BFF. It’s obvious there’s a grudge of some sort between them, but it doesn’t seem like professional jealousy. This all seems very, very personal. Watch and see what happens and whether the new head writer and producer are shaking things up with a legacy family character and his sketchy pal. Fans are taking note and these huge hints have not gone unnoticed. Take a look…

Kyle Abbott’s Got Another Big Secret – Theo Vanderway Involved on Y&R

The latest Young and the Restless spoilers confirm that there’s more to what went on with Kyle Abbott and Theo Vanderway than just Zoe Hardisty (Anna Grace Barlow) and her underage drinking. The soap already made clear that Kyle is “not being completely honest” with wife Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle) about what happened in NYC. But she knows about Zoe, so it’s definitely not that.

There have also been comments that Theo Vanderway’s acting like a “jealous ex”. Summer Newman’s (Hunter King) noticed it and so has Lola. Plus, Theo keeps going on and about the “brand” that Kyle’s establishing for himself. Plus, Theo Vanderway also keeps saying that Kyle Abbott is “living a lie”. That sounds distinctly like it could be about Kyle’s sexuality, right?

But will Young and the Restless really launch another gay couple? Reviews are mixed on Tessa Porter (Cait Fairbanks) and Mariah Copeland (Camryn Grimes). Some fans really dig them and the diversity they bring to the character canvas. Others aren’t so keen on them. But is the soap doubling down with something different introducing two sexually fluid males on the scene? There’s been lots of chatter about Theo since he came on the scene.

Is Young and the Restless Further Diversifying Its Couples?

Y&R spoilers remind that the show has no male gay couples. Plus, the soap reportedly rejected Greg Rikaart’s request to remake his character Kevin Fisher as gay. Obviously that’s not happening since he’s now a settled family man with Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson). But Theo Vanderway and Kyle Abbott are another story. Are the new showrunners shaking things up?

GH has a gay male couple and a sexually fluid female. B&B has a trans character although she’s sidelined a lot. And Days of Our Lives is extremely gay friendly. So, is Young and the Restless going that route? Obviously, Theo Vanderway’s got no problem getting with a woman since he’s bedding Summer all the time. As for Kyle Abbott – he’s married and always in the sack with his wife. But that doesn’t mean that Theo and Kyle didn’t have something more to their relationship back in NYC.

Or perhaps there was a one-time thing between them that Theo just can’t forget. The soap keeps on dropping little tidbits in dialog about Theo Vanderway’s obsession with Kyle Abbott. Because the references back to their New York days keep cropping up along with the notion that there’s another secret to spill – that has nothing to do with Zoe. What do you think?
