"Walden [Kutcher] is going to have a major health scare, and it is going to give him a little bit of an existential crisis," Tassler said to reporters. "And he wants to find a way to add more meaning to his life, so he decides he wants to adopt a child."
She continued: "In doing so, he starts the process and realizes it's very difficult to adopt a child as a single, straight man. So once and for all he decides: 'I'm going to propose to Alan [Cryer], and we're going to get married and adopt a child as a gay couple.' That's just going to start the season on 'Two and a Half Men,' and I think we're off for a great run."
Tassler said she doesn't expect the faux gay adoption plot will stir any negative reaction from the LGBTQ community.
"I think it's a very positive statement," she told reporters. "It's like 'You know what, I'm going to adopt a child as a gay couple,' and it's like the reality is he can do that, and in a universe when at one point you couldn't do that and now you can do that."
