    Default Comedian John Mulaney and Olivia Munn: A Gossip Blindside

    Gossip has been buck wild lately, all the pent-up energy of the pandemic bursting out with hookups and breakups and “what the f-cks?”

    In the latter category is this: the Internet’s best boy John Mulaney and fashion blog nemesis Olivia Munn are dating, per PEOPLE, which broke the story yesterday afternoon.

    Apparently, they met at church. But let’s get a little more specific: they reconnected at church because back in 2015, she talked about meeting him and his fiancé (now estranged wife) at a wedding.

    The source for PEOPLE is deliberately laying out a story for us here, with details like “This is very new, they're taking it slowly” (well he announced his divorce earlier this week, so it could be a touch slower). There are suspicions that this is a PR play offensive from them (are we about to see the first pap shots of them?), which is why the people are not exactly buying all the details laid out in PEOPLE.

    There’s been a lot of chatter on Twitter about the timing of it all. John checked out of rehab in late February. On May 10, John and his wife Anna Marie Tendler announced their divorce. His rep said he was focused on recovery, while through her rep she said, “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.”

    That’s pretty deep. “Heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage” - there’s no need to interpret or speculate about what that means because it’s a very frank statement, particularly for a celebrity divorce. John decided to end the marriage, per Anna’s direct words.

    And just three days later, this story in PEOPLE drops. Three days!!! I have leftovers in my fridge older than that.

    This is why social media has been so agog at the announcement. Scandalized. Breathless. And ruthlessly funny. Both Olivia Munn and John Mulaney were trending last night on Twitter.

    John spoke about his wife a lot in his standup which is why people have become emotionally attached to them. Immediately after John went to rehab, there was a lot of concern expressed for Anna (who deleted her social media). But what we’re not going to do is blame Olivia Munn for whatever went down here, right? Whatever our feelings about the timing, it’s John’s timing, not hers.

    What we can enjoy is the gossip part of it, the start of a new story that could go anywhere. They could break up in a week or be engaged by Labour Day. The chaos and excitement of an unexpected couple is invigorating and a collective social media bonding experience.

    It’s also funny how timing works. Though unrelated, we have two big stories this week: one centers around a much-wished-for reconciliation (Bennifer) and the other is a new couple NO ONE saw coming (John and Olivia). This must mean we are careening toward an inevitable conclusion: Ben Affleck and Olivia Munn. That would be a gossip apocalypse.

    From what I was reading over the weekend, sounds like she's been after him for years.

    She seems like a head case and he's got some serious issues. Rehab and ending his marriage, obviously to be with her, after "meeting" in church. Ok. This will be a disaster.

    i have a couple of friends who are acting all devastated over this but i'm having a hard time caring, probably because while i think mulaney is funny, i don't adore him the way his fans do. it also doesn't help that munn was already very disliked by women, so of course this is going to devolve into another 'other woman' hate-fest that ignores the fact that he's an alcoholic and given comedians' track records with mental health, probably has major issues and given men's track record with fame and power, probably an asshole.

    She has a scrawny white guy with thick eyebrows fixation! First Chris Pine and now John Mulaney!

    i've just noticed that she seems to rub women the wrong way, probably because when she first started out she hosted some gaming show that had a mostly male audience and she got famous for being a stereotypical 'cool girl' and nerdy gamers thought she was the hottest thing ever, and then she got mainstream famous but i think she never escaped that image and it just seems like the only people i ever see who like her are men, and women all seem to dislike her. i only know her form here and other gossip sites and that whole renee zellweger situation when she came out with a new face but i don't think i've ever actually seen her in anything except a couple of episodes of the newsroom.

    I don't really like or dislike her, the plastic surgery is a bit out of hand (and her lame excuses denying it) but I don't think I've ever seen her in anything other than an episode of The Chew years ago. She was kinda smart-alecky and I thought pretty funny.

    I agree she will take some "homewrecker!" hits on this one and as Cookie said above, major life changes, and for her, getting involved with someone going through those changes probably isn't a great idea and won't end well.

    i only know him from those tan france (queer eye) netflix youtube episodes where he gives styling advise to some comedians.
    i love her character in the newsroom, she was beautiful there. i can't understand why she did that to her face.

    I get Olivia Munn and Olivia Wilde mixed up and I couldn't recognize either of them from a photo lol. Sucks for Mulaney's wife though. And I agree with sput, he gives off an asshole vibe.

    My daughter is devastated. She wants to know who gets Petunia.

    I agree with posters saying this will not end well.
