LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Colton Thorn (photos below) has been Josh Flagg’s boyfriend for several years. But tonight, Josh Flagg and Colton Thorn reveal their relationship in what LALATE predicts will be the most watched episode in the history of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing.
While LALATE first reported the couple’s relationship two years ago, tonight Flagg unveils Thorn to Bravo TV viewers. On Flagg’s Facebook page, he lists his anniversary date with Thorn as Oct. 24, 2007.
While other Bravo series have been struggling in ratings this spring, MDL is way up in the ratings. Flagg tells news that, while no decision has been made for a fifth season, current ratings suggest a 2012 season is highly probable. After tonight’s expected ratings hit with Flagg and Thorn, MDL should be destined to be picked up, right away.
When Flagg appeared with Thorn in May of 2009 at a paparazzi filled event in Beverly Hills, one photo news agency called it an “exclusive” to show a picture of the couple together in public. But in real life, the couple had just opted not to portray their life on television, until now.
So why now? In a revealing interview with SDGLN, Flagg, when asked the same question, explained that he didn’t want to be known as Bravo’s “gay real estate guy”. Flagg said he “eased” viewers into the storyline, but admits some just didn’t know.
What does Colton do for a living? He is a design associate for a top interior designer. And what does Colton think about tonight’s episode? Thorn tweets today “Tonight’s the big show!” He adds “Watch to find out #WHOISCOLTON?”
For Josh, he tweets “Who is ready for the best episode ever tonight?” He adds that Edith will return tonight as well. Also making news is Josh’s book, which debuts on paperback also today online at joshflaggbook.com.
Finally, Colton tweeted THIS PICTURE today with the caption: “Going through old photos, how cute is this one of my mom and Josh Flagg the day they met.”
