Many of us are familar with our own celebrity CODA (Children of Deaf Adults), who is the former contestant on the FOX-Tv's "American Idol"'s first season. Jim Verraros is the son of deaf parents in Illinois, Nicholas Verraros. Jim is also an actor in several films and singer with numerous albums.
Jim Verraros recently got married to his boyfriend, Bill Brennan in "Hollywood-style" wedding last September 2nd (2009). Not much information on Bill Brennan, much older than Jim himself.
Verraros outed himself to his deaf mother at age of 18, then revealed his sexual preference to his deaf dad at age of 19 during the last stage of "American Idol" contest in Seattle hotel room. His deaf father dismissed Jim's revealation as just an experminental stage.
Jim met Bill thru the "My Space" accounts last four years ago. Both of those guys found out that they were just living 20 minutes apart.
To my surprise, Jim Verraros did date the bisexual actor, Brandon Call, well-known for playing the arrogant and selfish J.T. Lambert on the ABC-TV's "Step by Step" and done the supporting role as "Hobie Buchannon", son of David Hassehoulf's character on the first season of "Baywatch", very popular "syndicated" tv show in the late 80s and 90s.
Will Jim Verraros' marriage to Bill Brennan be successful or just a dupe? To me, Bill Brennan seems an opporuntist to ride on Jim Verraros' celebrity and used him.
Moreover, Jim Verraros deserve much better than the older Bill Brennan with fake bleached blond hair. Wish Jim Verraros "happy and successful marriage". I doubt that!
