Secrets And Scandals Unearthed From “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”

There’s hardly a television show more synonymous with the ’90s than Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Not only did it kick off the resurrection of the vampire dramas, it was also way ahead of its time. Buffy brought a strong female hero to the screen of young adults across America and did it with a spooky and thrilling plot.

Even though we were all obsessed in the ’90s, there is a lot about the series that has come to light since it ended in 2003. Everything from creator Joss Whedon’s cheating scandals to the real reason why Cordelia was killed off the show, there’s no limit to the scandals that might still be dug up from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The Kiss Was Banned From TV

Nowadays, a kiss between two women on television is no big deal. Back in 2000, it was discussed on every daytime talk show and church group. Besides having to deal with an opinionated fanbase, the relationship between Tara and Willow was even more stressed because WB wouldn’t let them show affection.

The kiss only made it onto TV because Whedon threatened to quit if it got cut.
