“AN HONEST LOVE FOR EACH OTHER”: KRISTEN FROM “GIRLS WHO LIKE BOYS WHO LIKE BOYS”
Michael Cook spoke with two of the stars of the Sundance Channel’s “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys: Nashville,” a reality show about the intense friendships straight women have with their gay male friends, and the world. Kristen and Peter, who claims to “love awkward situations,” discussed the show…
Michael: How did you both first meet?
Peter: We met on an online dating service actually. I messaged her, I was determined to prove to my ex wife that I wasn’t gay. I came out on our second date, and three years later here we are.
Michael: Based on the first episodes, the show is definitely taking on a “Housewives” vibe, serving up the drama! Was it hard to try and stay out of the fray?
Kristen: We tried to stay as objective as possible, which isn’t necessarily easy all the time.
Michael: Peter, you are a single dad. How do the kids react to your relationship with Kristen?
Peter: My kids absolutely love Kristen! They actually wish she was their “second mom”. She’s my best friend, but sorry Kristen, “daddy likes boys”!
Michael: Who did you both find yourselves gravitating most towards in the cast?
Kristen: I think we definitely gravitated towards Tanisha, but for both of us, both Jared and Tanisha. I actually like everybody, but we clicked with those two the most.
Michael: Would you guys consider doing another season?
Peter: I definitely would.
Kristen: I would think about it. I’m going to have a young child, and my husband will be coming home in January permanently. He’s been away since January other than two weeks in June, so who knows?
Michael: How would you both sum up your relationship?
Kristen: I think we have a really honest love for each other, a unique kind of love that straight male-female relationships can’t have. In straight relationships, three are breakups, divorce, things like that.
Peter: Guys relationships are complicated, with Kristen and I it’s a unique kind of love. And besides, I’m not afraid to tell her she looks bad in a dress.
