Kristy McNichol and Brian Bloom attend movie premiere in 1989

Bearding situation?

What one can see of his ass there looks great.

Indeed, his ass was (still is?) great.

Kristy is gay and there were always rumors about him, so maybe it was a mutual bearding situation?

He is very large now. I saw him at an event last year. He does voice work for video games, and a good friend works in that industry. I don’t know if he is gay. He is very private. And he barely ever goes out in public. But he has the same eyes.

He's very lucky to be one of those Jewish men who has never hit the wall with his looks. So many Jewish men who were extraordinarily beautiful in youth lose their looks in a dramatic way once they his early middle age. Brian is way past the hit the wall age at this point.

I'd look at my parents and be like - WHAT THE FUCK MOM AND DAD? How did all 3 of those come out of the same couple? Not saying the brothers are awful-looking, but usually there's still relatively good looking. Brian just used up all the good genes.

Wish he wouldn't trim his chest hair.

A friend of mine went to high school with him in Dix Hills - said he always had a fat ass. Even better!!

Why never married? Don't think there were gay rumors about him.

Oh wait -

"In 1997, Bloom developed and ran a .com hub known as AnimalWorldNetwork.com.[4] The website was an outpost for pet products, information, video content[5] and celebrity pet lifestyle coverage, selling and shipping fair-trade, organic and holistic pet supplies with both brick and mortar locations and a robust online presence. Bloom sold the domain and business in 2007 for an undisclosed eight-figure deal."

Ok - so he made some coin off of that and doesn't have to take any acting job to pay the bills.

R122-Please elaborate on that very intriguing statement. Are you friends/acquaintances with friends/acquaintances of his who would be in the position of having actual, definite information about his sexuality? Or again, is this mere speculation on your/their part?

R103-Hard to judge his parents' attractiveness based on that photo, but from what. little I can see, it looks like his Dad might have been a good looking guy in his younger days. His Mom is indeed very average looking.

R88-Interesting photo. I'm assuming their respective shows/publicists thought it would be a good idea to have them arrive and/or be photographed together. The looks on their respective faces are a little enigmatic--Brian has a half smirk, while John Wesley looks like he is trying to stifle a laugh. Maybe Brian just finished sucking John off in the men's room?

Off topic, but what is the scoop on Chris Meloni? He must be gay right? Isn't his wife much older than him a la Hugh Jackman? His kids born thru a surrogate? Maybe they never even did the deed.

If Brian really is gay, and John W. Shipp is not currently involved with anyone, I think they would make a very handsome couple.

JWS is involved with a guy. Hispanic guy. You can see him in some of his insta feed. I do know Brian casually. Yes, his eyes are dreamy in person. Good sense of humor, loves sci-fi and video games, and loves making money in voice-over work. He was seeing someone for a long time but I don;t think he is right now.

Julianne Moore, Martha Byrne and Brian Bloom left ATWT within 18 months of each other, after very successful, Emmy winning stints, in pursuit of bigger things.

All three had very different career trajectories.

Julianne became an Oscar Winning actress; Brian ended up behind the camera in voiceover work; and Martha quickly returned to ATWT and leaned into daytime stardom.

Jon Hensley also left ATWT at this time, and quickly returned to the show too.

If you had asked me in 1988 which one of those four would achieve A-list stardom, I would have said Jon Hensley, without hesitation.

Yes, it's interesting to think what he would have been like as one of the Snyder "bad boys". Or how he would have played "Thugsy" had he returned in the early Aughts.

He would have been a great Caleb Snyder. I don't think the show ever realized the potential of that character.

r154 it was a guy. He east coast family is very conservative, so I think he suffers from the I am gay but can't come out till my mother dies syndrome. I have worked professionally with him and we sort of bonded over living in the valley. We flirted but he was involved with someone at the time. I would have in a second if he asked. We work out at the same gym and see each other enough that he knows my name and will say hello if out. He is stunning in person but his voice is what gets me. So fucking sexy.

Thanks R165-He looks a little short, about how tall is he? Did he put on some weight? Are his eyes still so stunning looking up close?

Do you think he's aware that he's somewhat of a "gay icon"? It looks like he refused to "play the game" and enter into a bearded relationship/marriage. Perhaps that prevented him from becoming a bigger star.

He definitely should have had his own TV series. Maybe some kind of police or detective show--he was much handsomer than Ken Wahl and not anywhere near as temperamental or difficult.

I remember on Kate and Allie, her character Jenny had a pin-up picture of Bloom from one of those teen rags haning in her locker. Also, Martha Byrne was guest-starred as an attention starved rich kid who framed Jenny for shoplifting. Bloom never guest-starred on K & A which shot in NYC, but Ricky Paul Goldin another soap teen heartthrob did.

No one in the 80s was gay. Not John Wesley Shipp, not Brian, not any soap actor. Hell there are some today (Peter Bergman..cough) who are married but still gay as a goose (John McCook...cough)...Kiss of death if anyone thought you were gay or you came out. JWS has still not come out publicly. Look at just a few years ago when Jamie Lynn Seagler was bearding for Lance Bass while he was dating Riechen.

R172-Allison Smith always pinged to me big time. She seemed like such a baby dyke on those early episodes of "Kate and Allie". Even though she seemed a little more femme as she got a little older, she still seemed kinda dykey.

His pic at R29 looks like the prototype for all Disney princes.

by Anonymousreply 193November 16, 2023 3:49 AM

Let me preface this by saying I've never liked Richard Mulligan. I know he has several fans here on DL, but there was always something about him that was off putting to me. Kristy, on the other hand, there was always something I liked very much about her. She had a good sense of comic timing and delivery, besides she just seems like a very good person.

So it was no surprise to me when I heard Mulligan for some reason had gone off on her multiple times, criticizing her acting abilities in immature and bullying terms, usually in front of others to humiliate her. Stories found their ways into tabloids at the time, but no one really gave them much credit for obvious reasons. These attacks were the final straw which led to Kristy retiring from acting to get a grip on her life and her manic-depression. Also, when Mulligan initiated the attacks, Rue McClanahan cast Kristy in the "Bride" series of tv movies she produced, as a moral booster.

Was this on Empty Nest? I honestly never thought anything of the relationship with his daughters on that show. It seemed like a backdrop. The dynamic with the nurse was meant to be the draw I'm pretty sure.

R195 Yep, during Empty Nest's run, very early 1990s. I think it was out of jealousy because Kristy's character was getting some attention at that time. The nurse character was supposed to be their "Sophia". Funny how there was nothing about him attacking the other daughter, the nurse, the neighbor, or Marsha Warfield.

by Anonymousreply 205November 16, 2023 7:07 PM

Kristy's Barbara was easily the least funny character on the show and proved to be pretty expendable. I would be shocked if Mulligan was jealous, the character was just not very interesting or well-develped. Manoff was the funnier of the two. I think McNichol was a strong dramatic actor, especially for a adolescent/young adult, but that is in part why I don't think she was cut out for sitcoms. Her strength was her "naturalness" and sitcom's require a level of artifice as seen by pretty much every other character on Empty Nest.
