Two and a Half Men will bid farewell for good after its upcoming season.
But not without stirring up a bit of controversy first.
CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler told reporters today that Walden will undergo a “major health scare” early on Season 12. It will result in a “bit of an existential crisis, which will prompt him to consider adoption. However...
"He starts the process and he realizes that it’s very difficult to adopt a child as a single, straight man."
So, what will he do to solve this problem?
"Once and for all he decides I'm going to propose to Alan, we're going to get married and we're going to adopt a child as a gay couple," Tassler teased. "That's going to start the season on Two and a Half Men and I think we're off to a great ride."
But will GLAAD or someone else in the LGBT community see it as “great?” Two and a Half Men isn’t exactly known as the classiest show on television.
"I think it’s a very positive statement,” Tassler replied. “[Walden believes he is] going to adopt a child as a gay couple, and the reality is he can do that. In a universe where at one point you couldn’t do that, and now you can, I think that’s a much more positive statement that he’s making."
Do you agree, TV Fanatics? Are you interested in seeing Two and a Half Men go down this path?
