Sarah Silverman Returns to Kimmel for the First Time Since the Break Up, and Nope, It's Not Awkward At All

In advance of her HBO stand-up special, Sarah Silverman returned to Jimmy Kimmel’s show for the first time since the two ended their seven-year relationship, and look! She brought a box of Jimmy’s old things. “This is some stuff of yours that you left … when you left.”

It’s all for laughs, of course, but you can sense some sweet comic tension. “It’s weird, but it’s good weird,” Silverman says. “I’m just blown away. You got your fancy friends, and your fancy this, and your fancy vacations. And I’m just blown away!”

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    It's kind of even more awkward realizing that his new wife is also a writer on the show. So the hallway interaction must have been cringe worthy if it involved all three of them......eeek

  • Hats off to her. She handled that with a fair amount of grace, and without obvious bitterness - that's a fine line, to make a joke about an ex without having it come across as bitter. Bonus points for having an obvious, "Look at this awesome stuff I have done since we broke up" talking point, too. And, yeah, she looked great, which is how you always want to look when faced with an ex.

    I tried to do this (to a more human/not on tv extent), to be "friends" with my ex when he had actually moved on and I had said I had, but hadn't. It ended with me getting so drunk I peed my pants, crying in Rittenhouse Sq, "YOU SHOULD JUST GET BACK TOGETHER WITH ME!!! I'll say that Sarah takes a win in this case. She gets past the awkward without urine. Go Sarah.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Wow. You are very brave to share that anecdote. But then again, your avatar is in a wedding dress, so I guess you have some sense of triumph.

  • Melina

    I married THAT guy in the story 6 months later. I guess raw emotion won him over. 7 1/2 years and 3 kids later, I can laugh at it.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I applaud you then. My exes that I've tried to be friends with go through a cycle of inappropriate hook-ups, get back together, break up again (maybe repeat that cycle once more for good measure), friendship with sexual banter, and then slow fade to occasional email. We'll see how freshest friend/ex works out. [it will definitely NOT end in marriage though. :) ]

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    Odd, I have had incredibly good luck with my exes. I've only had one where I have no interest in ever communicating again; the rest end up being pretty good friends. Now we get together, sometimes as a group(!) and talk about our kids, etc.

    I know it's not the norm, and we all joke about it, but so far I've been able to pull it off.

  • Every ex that I've tried to be friends with ends the same way, so now I just make a clean break of it when we're done.

  • Melina

    Also, I have no idea how to change my avatar...I set it a million years ago and forgot about it :)

  • Wicked

    Yay! so happy it got a happy ending!

  • Maguita NYC

    The first part was cute enough, but the second part... I was uncomfortable for her.

  • Wicked

    I think she was awesome, and I loved how he was laughing so much out of nervousness.

  • Melina

    me too!

  • Great cleavage!

  • socallmeshirley

    That is a "I'm going on my ex's television show" look for sure.

    Edit: HOLY CRAP she's 42??

  • Dennis Albert Ramirez

    she is a babe for sure

  • apsutter

    Seriously, she looks hot! I was actually just talking with a friend about how she has looked fantastic at every event this year
