Guy will be doing a number of interviews on Thursday including DR.

My point was not that they are doing no mainstream interviews, though there really haven't been many lately. It was that right after they were omitted from the promo, two gay press sites (please, anyone give me a more PC term if there is one) got big exclusive interviews about the engagement. I was remarking that it seemed to me that for a 'first' like this on Daytime, NBC was playing the extremely safe route and not advertising this news in the mainstream press.
What mainstream press did Massey do?
Chandler gave a statement to Entertainment Weekly back in 2011, when they exclusively confirmed that Will was gay, but I don't think that he ever gave them a proper interview. The important thing to note, though (and what could arguably be proving Ellie's point, although I still think that it's too soon to tell), is that Entertainment Weekly got that exclusive -- not The Advocate or even Soap Opera Digest, but Entertainment Weekly.

Oh, and back to the original point of this thread...personally, I'd be more interested in hearing Melissa Reeves's thoughts on two men getting engaged and married on Days. :whistling:

Right, that's exactly what I'm trying to say. By mainstream press I meant non-soap and non-LBGT. Days has used TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, other NBC and network shows, and even Star in the past to promote stories. Michael Logan is certainly a friend of the show and could have easily done this, for example. Or a local LA show - I remember Deidre and Chandler went on Good Day LA together at one point. I would absolutely classify that as mainstream press.

I was just contrasting an NBC promo, which, whenever it airs, is seen by the entire network, with a niche publication for the gay community.

She's probably goes home and takes three showers and asks god for forgiveness for being on this darksided show.

This is my beef right now. I feel like NBC (not Days) wants to hide Wilson in the closet. They don't get promoted outside of the gay press for the most part and we now know NBC refused to allow Wilson in the Valentine's Day promo. The Wilson wedding won't be a part of May sweeps, again is another sign to me. I give Days a lot of credit for all they show and write. They have tried so hard to show equality. But I'm disappointed in NBC. I get they are allowing things to be shown but a the same time its as if they don't want people to know what's really happening on the show between Wilson. This is a gay marriage which is such a big deal right now and if you don't follow gay media you'd never know it was on. Also wilson never in spoilers regarding their marriage... I wish you could get exclusive with NBC about this. I'd love to hear their spin. If only...
