Does Silverman Sit-Down With Kimmel Mean They’re Together Again?

October 23, 2008 4:12 PM

Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman haven’t publicly commented on reports that they’re back together as a couple. But fans might get a definite answer next week.


That’s because ABC today confirmed that Ms. Silverman has been booked to appear on the Oct. 30 edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

It will mark the first time Ms. Silverman has appeared on Mr. Kimmel’s show since the couple confirmed they had broken up in July. A few weeks ago, People magazine reported that the comedians had rekindled their romance—but representatives for Mr. Kimmel and Ms. Silverman declined comment.

The big question: Will Mr. Kimmel the talk show host feel compelled to ask Ms. Silverman the guest about the status of her relationship with Mr. Kimmel the boyfriend?

ABC announced Ms. Silverman’s booking in a November sweeps press release noting a slew of upcoming guests on Kimmel’s show. The Jonas Brothers and “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno also are slated to appear on the talk show, while plans are in the works for a special episode tied to the premiere of the new James Bond movie “Quantum of Solace.”
