The Newlywed Game Finally Gets a Gay Couple

the-newlywed-game-show-logo.jpgStar Trek actor George Takei and his beau Brad Altman are according to Huffington Post, going to be the first gay couple on the new Newlywed Game.

When FBLA asked if the New Newlywed Game was going to include gay couples, the flack said, “Let me check on that.”
