'Whitney': Neal Realizes He's Gay And Comes Out To His Friends (VIDEO)
It's been a whirlwind ride for Neal and Lily in the past several episodes on "Whitney" (Wed., 8 p.m. ET on NBC). The couple went from engaged to suddenly broken up, and this week were in an awkward situation where they weren't sure if they should move on and start dating or not. Actually, this was Lily's dilemma, as Neal had kind of dropped off the radar completely.
So when Whitney decided that she and Alex should drop in on him to see if he was dating -- which would give Lily the greenlight to date as well -- they stumbled in on what looked like a date. Only Neal said it was a work thing and then a man came out of the bathroom. A man who was cooking dinner for the two of them.
Later, Neal stopped by to talk to a very uncomfortable Whitney, where he kind of came out to her and himself at the same time. He was certainly more confused about his own feelings than having any sense of certainty about his sexuality or what he wants. More specifically, it may well be that he was discovering that he's bisexual. He didn't deny that Lily is beautiful and that he loves her, but he felt something for the guy who cooked him dinner as well.
Finally, Neal came out to everyone and found a quick acceptance from them all, including Lily. With that secret weight off of his chest, Neal was suddenly willing and able to be a part of their lives again.
"Whitney" airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
