Tommy Dorfman is engaged
Yes, you read that right. Recently, while making an appearance on Rachel Bilson‘s Broad Ideas podcast, Tommy Dorfman spilled the beans on her personal life and she revealed that she is engaged now.
During her interaction on the podcast, Tommy went on to spill a few details about her fiancée. Dorfman stated that her fiancée is a “cis woman” and referred to her as “just a gay girl.”
The Love in the Time of Corona star further talked about her love life and the pair’s relationship. She admitted that she “knew I was interested in women in a way that I hadn’t really been aware of since high school.”
Dorfman further added, “I had this unresolved, unexplored thing. I was like, ‘This is the year that I’m gonna go on some dates with girls and feel that out again, and not feel ashamed about it.’”
Tommy Dorfman was scared to share that she was attracted to women
Tommy went on to say that she was scared to share with everyone that she was attracted to women because she felt like she had good and safe friendships with women her whole life and didn’t really want that to change.
Dorfman further added, “Because they thought of me as a gay man, they were like, ‘Oh, like you’re the safest person in the world.’ And then suddenly, I transition and I become a little bit more threatening, in my head.”
The Insatiable star stated that her fiancée is the first woman she has been with in a “very long time,” calling the experience “very affirming.” She continued, “It’s safe. Also not safe and like being in love is so scary. So uncomfortable, so painful. All the universal feelings of being in love that are probably the same.”
Tommy was married to Peter Zurkuhlen before
At one point in time, Tommy was married to Peter Zurkuhlen. Dorfman and Peter got engaged in April of 2015. The duo tied the knot in the year 2016. The pair exchanged their vows in Portland, Maine on November 12, 2016. In July of 2021, Tommy came out as a transgender woman.
During an interview with Time magazine, Tommy said, “It’s wild to be 29 and going through puberty again. Some days I feel like I’m 14. As a result of that shift, the types of romantic partnerships I seek out are different.”
Dorfman added, “I was in a nine-year relationship in which I was thought of as a more male-bodied person, with a gay man. I love him so much, but we’ve been learning that as a trans woman, what I’m interested in is not necessarily reflected in a gay man. So we’ve had incredible conversations to redefine our relationship as friends. Transitioning has been liberating and clarifying.”
This year, Tommy and Peter called it quits after 5 years of marriage. As per the court documents obtained by People, Peter filed for divorce from Dorfman in February in Los Angeles.
We send big congrats to both Tommy Dorfman and her fiancée as they are engaged. May their lives ahead be full of love, light, and laughter. Don’t forget to stay tuned with us for the latest updates from the world of showbiz.
