Blind Item: Lovers' biggest obstacle? The network!

Posted on

ausielloblinditem_lCupid might wanna trade in his standard bow and arrow for something that packs a little more punch if he sees today’s blind item. For that matter, you might feel inclined to take a shot at a few network suits, too. See, they’re the only obstacle that a certain popular TV couple can’t seem to overcome.

For seasons now, one stumbling block has been placed in front of another to keep the dynamic duo apart. But, finally, at the end of last season, viewers were supposed to get the big get-together for which they’d been waiting. The love story’s happy ending — or real beginning, as it were — was all planned out.

Unfortunately, the execs got cold feet.

Terrified that, without the constant “Will-they-or-won’t-they?” tension between the two, viewers would instead wonder “Why are we watching this?” — Moonlighting, anyone? — the net asked producers to delay the hook-up, and our gratification. So a new wall was blueprinted and built between the would-be sweethearts.

Mind you, the couple will eventually get together — the season after this one, if the powers that be are to be believed. It’ll just take a little longer than it was supposed to.

So… who’s the duo with the fragile dynamic? Guesses below!
