George Stephanopoulos may be in the news for his exclusive interview with fired former FBI Director James Comey, but recent claims made by his wife seem to be drawing more interest.

While James Comey’s wife was rolled up in a ball all “devastated” after Hillary lost, George Stephanopoulos and his wife Ali Wentworth were probably somewhere airing their grievances in the backseat of a limousine. At least that’s what they want you to believe.

According to an excerpt from her upcoming tell-all book “Go Ask Ali,” Wentworth and her husband of 17 years are showing no signs of cooling down.

Page Six writes of the book, in part:

She adds in the witty advice book, out April 24 from Harper, that she feels left out at “ladies’ lunches” because she can’t join the others in complaining about their terrible marriages.

She recalls, “The absolute lowest moment for me is when the time arrives for the fateful question: ‘How often do you and your husband have sex?’ I have lost friends with this question.”

She writes that before answering, she “takes a deep breath” and “spit[s] it out. And then the women gasp and scream like I’ve confessed that I shot my dog. One of them always slams her fist down on the table; a woman’s wine glass once smashed in her hand. I’m sorry! We’re hot for each other. Jesus!”

Well, there you have it folks. Raw, unapologetic, raunchy, groveling, quick and dirty.

And we’re not talking about what goes on behind closed doors at the Stephanopoulos household. We’re talking about book sales.

Jokes aside, does anyone believe this for even a second? I get that Wentworth chose what is sure to be the most salacious paragraph in the entire book to push sales, but what I don’t get is this claim that George Stephanopoulos is some sort of lady killer. I don’t fancy myself to be a body language expert, but let’s review some official photos anyway.




Yikes. If I had any doubts about where this relationship registered on the romance Richter scale, I no longer have those doubts. This is clearly a -100 on the scale.

The only traceable romance on her feed is this menopausal make-out with Sarah Jessica Parker.

So before everybody loses their minds over George Stephanopoulos’s love life, a little lesson in due diligence is in order. I get that the whole nation is currently swept with a feverish love affair for Stephanopoulos’s Comey interview but this simply goes too far. I will not tolerate such vast claims without any supporting evidence. The Instagram account is strike one. Until I see these two canoodling over a candlelit dinner and a bottle of merlot, I refuse to believe such assertions.

Not to mention, an industry insider tells The Daily Caller, “I know them both. There’s literally no chance.”

I’m just reporting the facts. You decide where to come down on this.
