Nominate Your Favorite! TV’s BEST INTERRACIAL COUPLE 2012

So, since I don’t watch television I’m going to need your help on this one! Because if it were up to me Toni and Todd Garrette from Girlfriends is the first interracial couple that comes to my mind and lord only knows how long that show has been off the air! haha.

As such, I’m turning to you to nominate your favorite interracial couple (black woman/white man) on television for 2012. It matters not the category (drama, sitcom, reality television show, soaps *Do these still exist?*, etc… You name it! As long it’s on television, I want it!)

Leave the name of the actor/actress, their character’s name (if applicable), and the name of the television show in the comment box below. Once we have a pretty good list, I will put those names up for voting!


1. What constitutes a “couple”?

Married, dating, dated in the past, flirting, hooking up. However, if you just wish two characters would have a love storyline introduced or anything like that, it wouldn’t qualify for this competition, sorry!

2. What if the character(s) had only a guest spot or is not a recurring character?

That’s okay. The character(s) don’t have to be a main character. Guest spots, characters in a handful of episodes, etc. are totally cool.

3. What about webisodes?

Nooo… but if you have a webisode or know of a web show that features an interracial couple, let me know about it so that I can feature it here on the blog.

4. What happens after I nominate my favorite couple?

We will then make a separate post featuring all of your suggested nominees that will be open for voting.

5. Should I nominate my couple in the comments box if someone else already did?

Nope. Not necessary. Just make sure you come back and vote for that couple once we get all the nominees in.

Oh Toni Childs, how I loved her!

    I’m going to go old school and say Tom and Helen from “The Jeffersons”. Perhaps the first interracial BW/WM couple.

    • ss / Aug 20 2012 3:50 am

    I’m going to vote Olivia and Fitz on Scandal. Why, you ask?

    A married white male subjects a beautiful, intelligent, classy black woman to being his mistress. That’s America for you. And some of the less wise black female fans think its sexy, hot and uplifting……..SMH.

    Till next time, folks….

      So you think it isn’t the best depiction of interracial romance but you pick it anyway?? You’re incredibly negative.

      • Nil / Aug 24 2012 9:46 am

        Not only that, but he didn’t subject her to anything. She CHOSE to be with him. And that’s exactly the point, black women can CHOOSE their partners these days – bad choices or not, their our choices to make.

    Jack Carter and Alison Blake from Eureka (RIP)

    Sorry but Tonie Childs really didn’t deserve Todd, she treated him like crap, although I’d LOVE to see whatever became of their daughter.

  10. Nik / Aug 24 2012 9:50 am

    Christina Hawthorne and Michael Vartan from the now cancelled series, Hawthorne, RN

    • Bea K. / Sep 6 2012 1:28 am

      Christina and Tom did make a nice couple, until she cheated on him with Nick. Vartan is much more sexy than J-Lo’s ex.
