In “telling us what we already figured out a long time ago” news, Big Bang Theory actress and awful tattoo aficionado Kaley Cuoc, let the cat out of the bag and used her Instagram to let everyone know that she’s officially dating equestrian Karl Cook. In the picture she posted on Friday, Kaley is seen smooching Karl and, probably not inadvertently, giving us all the finger. She captioned the photo “Finally.” Alrighty then, Kaley.
The 30-year-old actress, who is also quite the equestrian herself, had brought Karl to a taping of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert a few weeks ago and the subject of kids came up. When Stephen asked if she had any kids, she emphatically answered “No! No. I like kids. I don’t want to work with them. I don’t want to be around them.” A woman after my own cold little heart. She went on to say:
Babies are really tough to work with. They’re the biggest divas you could possibly have around. They’re carried in. They only work like six minutes. Guess what—I’d like to only work six minutes. I just feel like the babies can do whatever the hell they want and I don’t think that that’s fair. So, I don’t want to work with them.
I guess W.C. Fields was right. I wonder what her feelings are on working with animals.
Back to “Karley” (does that work?) The Instagram outing wasn’t the first time Kaley made her feelings known about the handsome horseman. She recently told CBS This Morning, “I think the horse connection is special” and added, “He’s special.”
I do get that Kaley truly does love horses – but who doesn’t? I don’t get how this recent revelation is supposed to be news, as she’s been posting pics with Karl on Instagram for a while now. I hope she lets this relationship mature before she does anything truly impulsive, like get married again. They seem happy and have a mutual passion, so I hope they can make it work. I secretly hope he lures her away from TV, so the long, national nightmare that has been the (inexplicable) nearly decade long run of Big Bang Theory can finally end. Fingers crossed.
