Maya's Secret Revealed on 'The Bold and the Beautiful'

Maya's secret was revealed on Wednesday's episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.
Maya's (Karla Mosley) secret was finally revealed on Wednesday's episode of The Bold and the Beautiful.

Warning: Spoilers ahead if you haven't watched the episode yet.

"You're not Maya at all," Maya's little sister, Nicole (Reign Edwards), told her. "You're Myron, my brother."

Maya, a model now dating Rick Forrester (Jacob Young), transitioned from male to female at a young age, after her sister confronted her with her birth certificate.

What a fantastic, and shocking, cliffhanger!



Bradley Bell, executive producer and head writer, tells USA Today the story the soap is telling is about love and tolerance.

"It is about people respecting other people's differences and their uniqueness," he says in a statement. "In the end, we all want to be loved, and in order to love someone else you first have to love yourself. If you are transgender, gay, straight, it doesn't matter. It's about finding love in life. This is a love story."

GLAAD, the leading advocate for lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender people in the media, is happy about Maya.

"Scripted gay, lesbian, and bisexual characters have become more common on television, but transgender characters continue to lag behind," says spokesman Nick Adams.

GLAAD says as many as 90% of Americans know someone who is gay, but only 8% know someone who's transgender.

B&B is pre-empted the next two days so viewers will have to wait until Monday to find out what happens next.

UPDATE:
Karla Mosley tweeted in response to viewers feeling this is a rewrite of Maya's history:

"I realize the main question is about the child Dayzee helped Maya have adopted," Mosley wrote. "She will speak about this on Monday, but we haven't rewritten history. We (myself included) have wanted to know about Maya's past. This has given me insight & connected dots."

Karla Mosley is a good actress but her voice should be a little deeper. Also, wasn't there a plot years ago that her baby died??? I think the plot is lame!
