Throwback Thursday Videos: All about Matt Fielding, the openly gay character on “Melrose Place”

In this era of hot gay sex scenes on ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder, it’s hard to believe that it was not really that long ago when gay characters on prime-time network television could not even get away with a chaste kiss.

One of those characters was Matt Fielding on Melrose Place. Played so well by Doug Savant before his long run on Desperate Housewives, Matt hugged his romantic partners. The one time he kissed one at his doorstep, the camera cut away to neighbor Billy’s face watching (he was kissing Billy’s best friend who Billy did not know was gay).

Anyway, Matt’s greatest moment was when he ripped off the wig of evil Kimberly who was played by future Housewives co-star Marcia Cross. Could not find that classic scene so if anyone does, please post a link of it in the comments.

Matt is on my mind because Wentworth Miller talks about how he used to watch him while in college – and closeted. See that story over at Gay Star News.
