Gary Janetti

Gary was relieved he actually pulled off the performance for the anniversary (not wedding) party.

on Feb 27, 20120

Hey everyone!

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.

Great finale! How on earth did you ever find ALL those friends and family members that CAN SING???!!! I mean everyone had great voices! I know a lot of people and maybe 2 can even carry a tune! Love the show...can't wait for new episodes.

Gary, I'm a big fan of Will and Grace, so to be able to have a glimpse of what your love life is like in real life is the next best thing to a W&G spin-off! The special performance was so moving, your love for Brad is beautiful...Brad is a lucky chap!

Brad and Gary, I cried. It was absolutley lovely. Back in 1996 I fell in love and had always wanted to have a ceremony somewhat like yours unfortunatley we broke up in 2001 and I have not found that someone special. But years have gone by and I have gotten a little wiser and grown up some and when I see your display of affection it allows me to know that there is that someone special out there for me..Peace and Love

What an amazing episode!!! I cried so much at the end. This is one of the best shows on television. It's not about backstopping or drama. It's just a sweet story about a wonderful couple who actually work for a living. I loved you both (especially Garry) and can't wait for the next season!

I thoroughly enjoyed watching you and Brad together on the show. You have the most endearing relationship and are so good together. It always put a smile on my face watching you two. I LOVED the flash mob.. I cannot believe what an amazing you did pulling it off and everyone sounded amazing. I hope we get to see more of you and Brad next season and wish you both nothing but the best!!

Thanks for the gift to me!

I am sorry about Jasper.

OMG! I watched and enjoyed the entire series except for last night. I saw the first ten minutes and then life intervened! It appears I missed a fabulous moment - looking forward to a re-run. Thank you Gary for sharing your lives with us; I missed the BIG moment but I truly enjoyed all the little ones. I think that you and Brad are my favorite couple on TV!

I love this show and agree with other comments that this seems like a true reality show. You seem like such a great guy, and it is wonderful that you two seem so happy. I must admit I cried when I saw that Jasper had died. He was so sweet. :(

This is the only reality show that seems real to me. I've enjoyed so much watching this season, but last episode was epic. I cried so much during the performance but only tears of joy cause that scene was pure love: Gary's love for Brad and all your friends love for you, it was just beautiful. Thank you for keeping it real. Showing Brad's professional struggles is an inspiration unlike other so called reality shows where people only complain about how successful they are. Looking forward for the next season.

The effort you put into giving Brad such a creative romantic gift based on your first meeting was so endearing. The way you love each other is just...beautiful.

I LOVED this episode...You two are amazing men & so darn funny. Sometimes gary is so serious & I wonder to myself, a comedy writer??, then I view this & I realize how many layers their relationship must have. I sat grinning along with Brad..loved how he kicked his feet with glee. My heart broke a little at the dedication to Jasper at the end..but how fitting such an important member of the family was recognized!! BRAVO!

I've been so taken in by both of you! It's obvious you both love each other so much and you are a wonderful couple. Congrats on your Anniversary. I, like others, feel that the "Wedding" Episode and the Flash Mob scene the was the best television I've seen in a long time! I keep watching it over again!!! I never do that! What a gift....great job Gary! So from a little town in Michigan....you both have a Super Fan! Rhonda

ps - Yes...put it on You Tube...I posted a poor quality version on my FB page casue I couldn't find a good one :(

I watched the Backyard Les Mis piece three times and made my fiance watch it. It was the most extroadinary effort and gift you could give anyone. I have not been able to convince my fiance to take on something like that for the wedding. For starters, no one in our circle can sing! Bravo to you for such a wonderful production!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT! I had fun watching Brad when he was with Rachel and have enjoyed so much watching It's a Brad Brad world. Love seeing your relationship with Brad. I'm grateful that you two are willing to share your relationship on t.v. My daughter is gay, and I love for her to see successful relationships such as yours.

I have watched many weddings on reality shows but the Flash Mob you did is the most beautiful I have ever seen! So heartfelt so touching and sincere - it was my highpoint of TV watching ever and shall remain the guideline by which I judge all others. Never was love expressed by anyone in such an honest way. The way all the people you shared joined in and performed so beautifully will be forever etched in memory. You make a beautiful couple!

Chills. The les mis flash mob gift to Brad was inspired to say the least. The choice of the first three singers was spot on. Bravo did a fabulous job filming and editing as you had no idea when they were showing you the guests that then they would also show up in the flash mob. I was so curious as to why Lindsay's father would show up with her (kinda weird) and then, when the music queued and he stood up and adjusted his microphone and began belting, well...like I said...chills.

I have to say that of all the reality shows out today that yours and Brads is my favorite. I wish more reality shows were as relaxing, loving, and positive. I'm also very sorry that you've lost your companion and I hope that time has begun to ease any suffering it has on your lives.

Gary, that flash mob idea, incorporating all the people you both love was brilliant! It was also the most romantic thing I've seen in forever. I cried through the whole scene. Stay together, get married, and continue to love, love, love,each other.

I thought your "Wedding" episode was the sweetest reality episode I have ever seen, EVER! And Bravo is all I watch. It was a miricle how it all came off perfectly. Just brilliant! The banter between you two is so endearing and it's so cute how Brad says things to get under your skin knowing what your response will be. I hope you two will always be happy in your life together. Brad has always been one of my favorites and tell him how impressed I am with how he is stepping up as a boss and business owner. Xxoo

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

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.

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. :)

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 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.

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!

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!

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.

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 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!

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.

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.
