Maya Avant’s transgender storyline on “Bold and the Beuaitful” has been running for several months now, and Maya’s sister Nicole revealed that her older sister and parents are estranged – and they don’t even discuss Myron’s transition. According to “Bold and the Beautiful” spoilers, B&B fans will not want to miss the exciting scenes as the Avants meet Maya for the first time.
Babatunde and Horsford sat down with TV Insider’s Michael Logan and dished some exciting spoilers about their “Bold and the Beautiful” debuts. Babatunde revealed, “Julius is a big stickler for tradition and a really bullheaded guy. But Maya is also very headstrong and difficult. Vivienne is a wonderfully loving, nurturing soul, and you also see those qualities in Maya. So, despite the intense differences among the members of this family, they’re very much alike.”
Anna Maria Horsford revealed that her upcoming storyline on “Bold and the Beautiful” is very near and dear to her heart, and she explained to TV Insider, “This reunion of the Avant family has opened my heart on so many levels. I personally know several transgender people but I never really thought of things from the parents’ perspective. The audience has heard Maya’s point of view about what went on in the family. Now it’s time to get Mom and Dad’s side of things! Maya may think her parents never loved her, but that’s her perception.”
It sounds lie B&B fans are in for a treat, and there are going to be some intense scenes when Maya’s parents arrive on the CBS soap.
