Telemundo's 'Dangerous Affairs' Heats Up with Gay Love Story: VIDEO


The Telemundo telenovela Relaciones Peligrosas (Dangerous Affairs) has a gay storyline that's heating up.

Diego, a closeted football player being pressured by family to marry his girlfriend, is secretly falling in love with their best friend, Alejandro, and in a recent episode their relationship is exposed during an argument at the local jeweller.

Plus, things are about to get very steamy.


Also, not a regular viewer of this show so any comments from folks who are would be greatly appreciated.

  1. This is practically a verbatim storyline from an Argentinian soap opera a couple of years ago. That one had great promise but was then turned into a story of shame, desperation and unhappiness that finally ended with the characters disappearing from the show without explanation.

  2. I wouldn't get too excited by it. According to, the show is low rated and the episode order might have been cut short. In addition, any romance or kissing between the two gay characters takes place entirely off screen.

  3. The original Spanish TV show "Fisica o Quimica" was much better than this version, look it up on YouTube, still I think they deserve props considering the American/Latin audience they're aiming for, plus some of the actors are really hot, though their acting skill are not that good.

  6. If only illegal aliens all looked like that hottie with the pretty lips and Adonis-like curls in the top photo, I would be totally in favor of open borders.....LOL

  7. The show is in its final stretches. I guess since it became known that it was based on FISICA O QUIMICA, people expected more. The Diego / Alejandro things has been going on since early on, they are now at episode 102 or so.
    But early on, other characters were very supportive of Alejandro's coming out, IT GETS BETTER got a mention and the portrayal of Alejandro was generally well received.
    On the TELEMUNDO website, since the show is close to being over, viewer's can vote for their "dream finale storylines" and Alejandro and Diego starting a serious relationship is one of them. According to the comments, people would like to see this as one of the wrap-ups of the show's many storylines.

  8. Apparently, a dream kiss scene between Alejandro and Diego was filmed but not aired. You can find them kissing if you do a Google image search or just click on the link below. The actor(Jonathan Freudman) who portrays Diego is superfine.

  11. I was enjoying the Russian version of FOQ, but that has been cancelled after one season. Not surprising considering the rampant homophobia there at the moment.

  13. as has been mentioned it had been a loooong time in the making, even by american soap standards. diego is kind of hot, but holy cow, that hair covers a pair of ears that rivals obamas. i mean bow legs and jug ears have a certain appeal, i rather like the twinkish alejandro. he lacks the statuesque looks, but he has a tight little body. he is an acquired taste i suppose.

  14. Did anyone else think Diego looks like a hotter Elijah Wood in Lord of the Ring :) ??

  16. @ Jeffrey in St Louis;

    You should check out Lenny und Carsten in the German soap, "CZSZ".
    Though Christian is so hot also. sigh.

  18. Rick - I'm sure you've opened your borders for entry for hours at-a- time already. You should apply for Sheriff Babeu's job, since he'll be leaving it.

  19. @Arbogast I second that! lol

  20. Whether it gets higher ratings or not, it is a step in the right direction especially for the spanish speaking community. I mean, here in America we are more "liberal", yet we see very few gay story lines in soap operas. When we get the few gay soap characters, we get all excited, when really for 2012, we should be seeing a lot more.

    Meanwhile, those 2 guys are super cute with sexy voices.

  21. Mexico City has marriage equality, most USA cities dont.
    Is anyone else a little bothered that all these shows use European blooded actors, while the viewers are of all or part native blood?

  22. This storyline is a step in the right direction. Racism in the LGBT community (see this comment thread) and the continuation of the "sistema de castas" in Latin media are not.

  23. Or in US media, for that matter.

  24. Jack -- Here's a Lenny & Carsten playlist:

    They lived happily ever after about two years ago.

  25. @ Anastasia Beaverhausen :

    Thanks.....but that link "don't do it "....something wrong.

    Did Lenny get out of jail ? Did he and Carsten live happily ever after ? lenny was the cutest guy ever !!!
