I really loved the last episode. I thought it captured so well exactly what was going on during that time. I actually never wanted to even have a party that big, it just kind of kept growing. Not like a wedding, but kind of like a wedding.
And then when Brad and I met with Steven Petrarca for lunch to discuss the party and he said people would expect me to say something, it got me thinking about WHAT I wanted to say and what it was that I could do for Brad that would illustrate in some way how I felt without having to actually say it. Steven and I talked at some point after that lunch, and I expressed to him I wanted to do something special with a performance aspect, but one that was very personal, and he suggested a flash mob. As soon as he said it, something clicked and I thought what if we did a musical theater flash mob to One Day More from Les Miserables.
You just surpassed love actually for best musical moment ever. SO romantic and amazing! that is true love : )
Great last episode! Thank you for allowing me, the viewer, into your lives. You and Brad are such great couple and every episode left me with a big smile on my face. My sincere condolences to you both on the loss of Jasper, I felt a kindred spirit, as I have my own "Jazzy" who is part Schnauzer! Best wishes and see you next season :-)
That was absolutely the most fantastic show!! I was in tears as I watched....incredible. All the effort it took to pull this off....worth every bit!! I have enjoyed watching you & Brad. Thank you for sharing your lives. So terribly sorry to hear that Jasper passed :( Best of luck to the both of you!
That was among the greatest moments in tv history. I can't believe Brad didn't command an encore performance.
Oh My Goodness....the best show ever! Smiles, laughs & tears. Your gift to Brad was one of the most thoughtful gifts I've ever seen. It was truly something that was completely selfless & in return your heart is full (& so is mine). Thank you. Life is good :)
I love this show but tonight's episode was wonderful!!! I love les mis myself saw it in the early 90s in NY Gary did such a sweet surprise I didn't expect it!! They make a great couple I wish them the best of luck in their careers especially Brad he has such a flair for fashion I live in the south so I'm not that brave to where some of the clothes brad wears but I admire him he's going to go a long way with his talent. My partner and I have been together 12 years I was a supervisor for jcpenney for 25 yrs so I guess I've been in the fashion world!! But good luck with your show Brad I watch it all the time. :) Jimmy
Wow-that was such an amazing, thoughtful surprise. You guys are an inspiration to me about how to be so loving and supporting of your significant other. Congratulations on your anniversary and I wish you many many more years of happiness with each other. On another note- I'm so very sorry to hear about Jasper. He is in doggie heaven and I'm sure he loved the flash mob!
that was fantastic! we all got to be surprised...we knew something was coming, but had no idea it would be so wonderful and personal and joyous. sorry you have lost your friend jasper. thank you for sharing this. (i came to the site hoping to hear the family + friends flash mob again!)
Beautiful show. You are a genius !!!1 . I was not expectingthe surprise.. i was thinking it would be a big proposal if not wedding...
Exciting show!!!Gary you are a genius to stage out this secret .All this time I was thinking it would be a big Proposal .. Boy was i surprised .. Very very entertaining ... please more show..
Bravo!!! Bravotv. for allowing us all to enjoy a couple who loves each other and inspires each other..Gary you did an amazing job! Its been fun getting to know you guys this season! Please come back for season 2!!!!
This was truly a fantastic show. Drama but in the best way ever! You put so much work into the musical and it was beyond fun. Thank you for sharing your talent with an audience that often does not see the very best side of people. It was absolutely amazing. Thank you!!!!
Thank you for allowing BravoTV to tape your life. What you are doing on TV today will make a difference in the world tomorrow. Great job. I have written many stations that show flamboyant cross dressing and male impersonators as the only gay in the world, because I fear it makes those not as worldly as the rest of us think all gays are one way. I have begged producers to show more normal gay couples and I am so happy to see this and I think your show is the number one show for showing reality in the life of a gay couple. No pink feather Boas or high heals like on RH of Atlanta which irritates me to no end. Don't get me wrong, I love all people and have no real issue with anything that does not hurt someone else, but I beleive that Joe and Mary Doe in small town Iowa do not relate to the extreme, and even I get turned of to all extremes including what I feel is to make a joke out of being gay. In order to get get rights, we need to air more reality and less exploitation. So thank you for doing what you are doing :) That was the best episode of the entire season! I was waiting for a wedding proposal, all the way until the end when you got into your bed! :'(
REVISED: I meant to say GAY rights

I loved the flash mob gift you gave Brad! Inspired and romantic and very entertaining. I've enjoyed the show and hope it's back for a second season. I wish the two of you decades more happy anniversaries. Condolences on the loss of Jasper.
That was by far the best episode. The Surprise Flash Mob was wonderful. You have some talented friends. I loved Brads reaction, especially when his mom hit the stage. Such a loving gesture and great entertainment for us. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Thank you for making me laugh on a day when laughing was hard too. Wishing you and Brad continued success in your careers and life together.
I have never commented on a blog like this before, but I had to say that you managed to come up with such a fun, creative and beautiful way of showing Brad how much you love him! Sometimes songs say things better than we ever could. I am now inspired to try to come up with a new way of showing my husband how much I love and appreciate him... thanks, Gary!
Last night was awesome!
Brad and Gary, you are both lovely people. I remember feeling so bad for Brad as I watched him being treated horribly by Rachael and Taylor. It makes me feel a little better in retrospect knowing he at least was able to go home to Gary. But it's far better seeing him have the success he deserves and has worked so hard for. And it's icing on the cake to see that he has such a great partner to share it all with. You guys are adorable together. I'm glad you found each other!
I'm sorry to see the season end so soon. Every episode of this show was really good and worth watching! It was a joy getting to know Gary and getting to know Brad on a more personal level. I seriously hope there's a second season!
Great show and I love the chemistry between you two. what made me sad though was the loss of Jasper. I am deeply sorry for your loss. I'm sure you gave him a wonderful life while he was with you. My deepest condolences.
Gary - Brad is so lucky to have you. I am sure you believe you are lucky to have him too... however the surprise Le Miz flash mob was just so amazing and thoughtful. I am embarrassed to say I cried while watching. I love musicals and just seeing how happy Brad was and the love was so so heartwarming.
I also commented to Brad how sorry and sad I am for you for Jasper. I had to make a decision about my dog of 15 years, reggie, almost 2 years ago and still miss him. I am happy you have Penelope to help but suspect you will always miss Jasper. If you know the Rainbow bridge poem, you will see him again.
Loved you on the show, keep being so positive and I loved Will & Grace, Love Family Guy... you must have a great sense of humor.
Amazing gift. It left me in tears becase it portrayed such a wonderful love you have for Brad. You two are perfect for each other!
That was a very special tv moment like none I have ever seen. The very best to you both.
Gary, you are awesome. The Les Miserables spectacular made me cry, so I have no idea how Brad held it together so well. Just when I thought I could pull myself together I see that Jasper had passed away. I am so sorry for your loss. Best wishes & cant wait for next season.
It is refreshing to finally watch a relationship that is so positive. You both make me smile thank you for sharing.
First, let me say that I am so terribly sorry about Jasper. I lost my beloved dog recently and my heart really goes out to you both. Next, I wanted to tell you that flash mob/ Les Mes performance might have been the coolest, funniest most romantic gesture ever! Thank you so much for sharing your extraordinary relationship with us. It was truly a delight watching you and Brad together. The love between you two is palpable. The scene where the two of you are on the bed after the party was so sweet and natural. I really think it showed an honest and pure love. My religious upbringing taught me that homosexuality was wrong. As I matured, it became clear to me that some of the most creative, talented and lovely people happened to be gay. I decided to try not to judge and leave it between them and God. However, after watching that moment (and so many others) between you and Brad, I am honestly wondering, how could that be wrong? It was truly illuminating and I thank you for that. I'm certain others feel the same way and you have broken down some barriers. So thank you sharing and God Bless!
Gary--You're a sweetheart and SO talented! The "unwedding" was so genuinely touching and some of the best TV I've ever witnessed (and I've been on the planet a loooong time). From the way the entire idea evolved to the actuality: just so sentimental and, well, WELL-DONE. What terrific friends and family.You and Brad are great together and I wish you both the best.
Oh how full my heart was during that whole last episode and ready to burst during the flash mob, bravo! I even posted on FB how much it touched me. You two are amazeballs and such a wonderful representation of love, gay or straight.
Bravo to you and Bravo TV. Reality shows(Bravo shows included) are becoming harder to watch because of the need for forced drama. It's one of the annoying parts of the Rachel Zoe show. I like it but at times feel like it's trying to hard to for the drama. Your lives and how the shows have been presented have been more enjoyable than most reality show out there. I think it's great for anyone in a relationship that remind us how we should try and treat each other.
What an amazing thing to do! I've loved Brad for years and so glad he has a great partner. Love you, and even more once you called out the housewives for using, "supposeably" It's my pet peeve of which I tell my 5th graders on the first day of school. I wonder how you feel about "conversate"? ha ha! Will miss seeing you guys each week.
Thank you Gary. I loved how you fretted about the surprise and then I watched this incredible performance unfold. A beautiful finale for the series.
I absolutely love ya Gary-that was not only an amazing thing to do for Brad(and pull it off beautifully) but I got choked up and felt so happy and amazed that you would do something so creative. I did not know until I watched this show that you were a producer on Will &Grace, which I loved! You are so Will at times, and its very reflective(even the way you style your hair to some extent lol). Had no idea you write for family guy, not that its a stretch because you are an amazingly smart, witty, and hurmorous guy. Brad is the breakout star but you need to be commended. You two are so ying and yang, and not to mention, you are the glue that holds the both of you together. Brad can cry, fall apart and be a mess and you calm him and put him back together. Brad is sweet, talented and has alot to experience-glad he left Rachel Zoe(can't stand her). Seriously my favorite episode to date and thanks so much for being such a great couple and allowing us into your world!
As Brad said, every woman wants a Gary. The performance was amazing and I wish Bravo would post it so I could listen to it on a loop for hours. Bravo!
I don't feel compelled to comment on shows ever, but the gift you gave Brad was so incredible. It was so touching to watch. Literally, my eyes filled with tears of happiness. Thank you.
Fantastic job Gary! Loved you before; love you even more now. Thank you so much for sharing your life moments with us. I laughed, cried and am still smiling. Best romantic gesture ever!
So very amazing! I was legit weeping after work on Monday when I watched. It is true that you have to be able to communicate in the love languages, and you hit gifts out of the park! Such a pure display of love and adoration. Cheers to many more years for the 2 of you.
Where's the video of "One More Day"????...since I accidentially deleted the episode, I must see it again, it made me happy for you and Brad!
I have never commented on any of the blogs here at Bravo, but, I felt compelled to do so here. I have enjoyed watching your and Brad's relationship throughout this season and was so touched how it culminated in this last episode. How you planned the flash mob for Brad was just beautiful and I found myself watching it over and over again, weeping every time. I think all of us wished that somebody would do something so personal and meaningful for us. Brad is a lucky, lucky person.
Yours and Brad's relationship is one of the finest representations of not just a gay couple, but any couple. You can see how much you deal with each other's quirks and how much you know each other.
Anyway, congratulations on being the first blog I've ever commented on here. I hope a second season is on the way!
This gift to Brad was amazing! It was so incredably cool and touching! I watched 3 times; and told all my friends. I wish I could figure out how to post it on Facebook, because it was fantanstic! Kudos to you. I must say watching Brad's glittered shoes bounce as PERFECT! Loved it!
This was hands down the most touching and adorable moment I've ever seen on a reality program. You two! Love you both, stay happy together forever. I've been with my sweetie for almost fifty years and know a love like yours will endure, too. Bravo, BRAVO.
Gary - I have to say that between you and Brad, this is one of the most upbeat, positive shows on TV. Not positive about gay people or gay couples because that's entirely beside the point...seriously. It's simply a great show about a couple encouraging each other, working on your dreams together and showing honest struggle in making your relationship work. You two are so wonderful together and your surprise was AMAZING. Thanks for sharing yourselves with us.
This was so amazing, completely joyful to watch. I hope Brad, Brad World returns for another season; and if it happens to feature more musical theatre in the future, I would not complain a bit!! Congratulations on 10 years, Gary and Brad. I hope you have many many more. :)
This finale was such a great tribute to the relationship you share. You both seem so REAL to me--and clearly your family and friends adore you.
I agree with TeeLea's comment above: Thanks for allowing the viewers into your lives.
I posted on Brads blog but I just wanted to tell you that you are an amazing human being...I simply adore you. What a gift you gave him..I bawl watching it (over and over)..when the season began I had no idea how much in love I would fall with both of you..AMAZING...Honestly you both are such an inspiration to so many. This show has been such a gem and I CANNOT WAIT for next season...mazel mazel to you both. Wishing you both all the love and joy and happiness in the world!!! You are such a beautiful refreshingly candid couple....xo
I laughed! I cried! I've watched it six times so far...
Truly fabulous and what a tribute to your loving and fun relationship. Everyone should be so blessed and so lucky. Hope to see you back again for Season 2!
Wow, Gary this was amazing! Ironically, I had just gotten home from Les Mis rehearsal when I saw this episode. We're performing it at my high school at the end of March and we would be honored if you and Brad could find the time to view it. If you're in the Myrtle Beach area around then, be sure to come to Carolina Forest High school to see Les Mis. :) Find info on our webpage: cfhsshows.com
