For the past several years, I’ve been working on myself as a human. Becoming more understanding, more educated, gaining a greater sense of the world. But I can never lose sight of what got me here in the first place: a deep, splendid love of celebrity gossip.
And there’s nothing I love so much as a good SCANDAL.
So I’m gonna pour myself some champagne with a spoonful of leftover cranberry sauce (it’s like a mimosa but, like, chunkier, IT’S FINE) and let’s engage in some hot goss. HOT GOSS. WITH CRANBERRY SAUCE.
OK, so, y’all. Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski are expecting their first baby. He’s a play type, lots of LaBute stuff. He was on The Newsroom. Amanda Seyfried was dating Justin Long until the two broke up circa fall 2015. Also, presumably totally unrelated, Thomas Sadoski and his wife of eight years announced their divorce in fall 2015. And that’s also when this blind item came out.
Last time we blinded about her, she’d had an affair on set with a married actor with a skeevy character vibe. His marriage is still intact. Another marriage, however, has ended. And she was, again, involved. Once again it started as a working situation. Of the two of them, she’s definitely more well-known. But even if you don’t know him by name, he books steady jobs, and his face should be familiar to you. He too is good at playing assholes.
When they met, she had a boyfriend and he was about to celebrate a milestone with his wife. Stage life and real life soon blurred, they were hooking up in and out of character, and she was texting him explicitly. They couldn’t let it go after wrapping up production. Which is why he’s not married anymore. He left his wife for her. According to their inner circle, they were so into each other that she followed him while he was on anniversary holiday in Europe with his wife. He would make up excuses during that trip to slip away and spend time with her. Eventually her boyfriend busted her and they broke up. He ended up filing for divorce in August and they insist they’re just friends, that nothing shady went down, that no one knows the real story. But those who saw all of it go down say they’re totally together now but are trying to put enough distance between the end of the marriage and their coming out so that people won’t suspect how they started, if that is, they last that long.
Maybe the two are unrelated entirely, I don’t know, who knows? I don’t know anything, I just know my mimosa is chunky and this goss is hot like Kermit’s tea.
(Bonus: Who do you think the first paragraph might be? Consensus seems to be Peter Sarsgaard which makes me sad for my Maggie.)
The two “officially” “started” dating in March. That’s when Us Weekly AND People Magazine, who lest we forget communicate messages that come specifically from the stars themselves, both referred to the couple using such words as “reunited”and “reunited.”
Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Mmm, there’s cranberry skin in my teeth.
Their engagement was announced in September, less than a year after his divorce and just a few months after it was announced they’d started dating. Today it was announced she is pregnant with their first child together.
Look. These are adults. As scandals go, an affair is a minor one. They seem happy together. This is their journey and it does not affect us. But if I can’t simply sit here with my chunk-mosa and enjoy some good old fashioned celebrity liaisons, IN TRUMP’S AMERICA, then I don’t know what you expect me to do.
