I always thought the fictitious T-Bone was a slightly homoerotic amalgam of various fever dreams.
He hangs around with Gayle King.
He volunteered that he groped an unnamed girl, one that was drunk. Very convenient. He could never be held accountable for it (because she most likely doesn’t exist) but gives the illusion of him being interested in girls.
He’s still single.
He’s a drama queen.
Not there’s anything wrong with it.
