Vanessa Morgan Dishes On Toni & Cheryl's Potential Romance on 'Riverdale'

We don’t know about you, but the highlight for JJJ on last night’s Riverdale was all about Toni and Cheryl!

If you haven’t seen the episode, we recommend you go watch right now, and if you have, you know that in a poignant moment, Cheryl came out to Toni as bisexual and told her the story of Heather, a friend she had long ago that she was in love with before her mother intervened.

Vanessa Morgan spoke to ET after the episode aired, opening up about giving Cheryl someone to talk to and fans a little bit of hope of what their relationship could be.

“I’m sure a lot of people can relate to this [story line] and their parents shutting them down for loving who they love,” she shared. “I’ve said before, you can fall in love with people regardless of their gender, and I love being able to show that. I love how Cheryl is touching on that.”

Vanessa adds, “She had put her walls up and had been holding back. You saw [her put her walls down] a little bit with Josie and she had a little crush there, but Cheryl is finally letting down her walls for Toni because Toni basically isn’t falling for the tough exterior. She’s just like, ‘Tell me what’s going on, because you’re really hurting.’”

As for what Toni and Cheryl could become, Vanessa says it could turn into a friendship, or something more.

“Maybe they’ll end up being friends. Maybe they’ll end up being more, who knows?” Vanessa says. “But I think you can kind of tell by the end of that episode that Toni has — you know, Cheryl is a beautiful girl and there is probably some attraction there. I think Toni is probably excited that she found that out and is thinking, ‘Oh, wow! She’s like me. She can fall in love with a person’s soul too, and not just focus on gender.’”

“I think that really intrigues Toni, so whatever ends up — be it a friendship or more — I think that’s really exciting for Toni to have somebody that she can relate to.”
