April Fool’s Day is over, so trust is when we say we were just as surprised as you are to learn that former ‘Good Times’ star Jimmie Walker is dating Ann Coulter.
The revelation comes by the way of 94-year-old Norman Lear during an interview with black-ish creator Kenya Barris for the Untold Stories issue of Entertainment Weekly.
When asked by Kenya about casting Walker as J.J. on Good Times, Norman said he knew the “role could make him a star,” before discussing Walker’s personal life.
“I love him; he’s a wonderful guy, but I’ll tell you something about him that’ll astound you: He dates Ann Coulter,” Lear said. The news surprised Barris, who then listened as Lear explained he and his wife had dinner with Coulter and Walker. Lear added that Coulter turned out to be “a dreamy, delicious, sweet person.”
“J.J. dates Ann Coulter!” said Barris. “You couldn’t write that! That’s fantastic!”
Rumors that Walker and Coulter are together have persisted for years. In 2013, Coulter told HuffPost Live that Walker was the one “spreading that rumor” about their relationship and said they weren’t together. Coulter, however, confirmed the pair are close friends.
We don’t even know what to say. Check out the video below.
Update: Ann Coulter says that while she and Jimmy are close, there’s ‘no romance.’
