Greg Rikaart on His 'The Young and the Restless' Character: "Kevin Is Not Gay But He's The Closest Thing We Have To A Gay Character"

Greg Rikaart on The Justin Root Show.
The Young and the Restless star Greg Rikaart is the guest on the latest episode of The Justin Root Show. Rikaart talks about everything from winning a Daytime Emmy Award and working on Y&R to his favorite '80s TV icon (Cybill Shepherd, mother of his former soap co-star, Clementine Ford) and wanting to guest judge RuPaul's Drag Race.

"I like to think I sort of proudly carry the flag of having the gay fans of our show," Rikaart says when asked about Y&R fans. "Kevin is not gay but he's the closest thing we have to a gay character. He's certainly not the Lothario on the show. He's had a lot of problems with women. He doesn't know how to treat a woman. He knows how to give them STDs and not be nice. I think fans of the show who know who I am in my personal life are rooting for Kevin to have a secret, which I think would be fun. It's something I've discussed with my bosses."
