Sarah Silverman says she & Jimmy Kimmel are “very Bruce and Demi”

Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel are absolutely intent on keeping the rest of us guessing about the state of their relationship. Last week it seemed that the pair were back together after they were caught outside a restaurant holding hands. Yes it’s okay to make those second grader kissy sounds and smash your index fingers together like they’re making out right now. Because that’s about how old I feel when I make a big deal out of two people holding hands. But let’s be honest – how many of us hold hands with people we’re just friends with?

The pair attended Howard Stern’s wedding together this past weekend but are still working the “we’re just good friends” line – but People swears they’re back together.

Sarah Silverman is reluctant to state whether she and ex Jimmy Kimmel are back on. “We talk every day. It’s fine, it’s great,” she tells Tuesday’s New York Times. “I’m doing his show at the end of the month. We’re very Demi and Bruce.” Over the weekend, they attended Howard Stern’s wedding together, had brunch at NYC’s Spitzer’s Corner and hit a Saturday Night Live afterparty.

Despite the string of dates, she declined to give Barbara Walters a relationship update on Tuesday’s The View. “In total respect to you and your legendness,” Silverman said, “I do not feel beholden or compelled to define my personal relationship …”

“Oh, come off it,” Joy Behar interrupted.

Replied Silverman: “It’s not like a big drama thing, we’re just not defining it. We’re just being right now. Is that okaaaay?”

But People – who generally has pretty good inside sources – has it on good authority that Silverman and Kimmel are indeed back together. Of course just about anyone with eyes could have told them that.

Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman are back together. “They’re taking it slow,” says a source. “They’re on the road back to being together again.”

I don’t really understand why they won’t just say they’re back together again, since it’s not exactly like they’re going to great lengths to hide it. All I can guess is that maybe they don’t want a lot of pressure right now and want to see if things are better and more likely to work out this time. When a couple reunites it seems like the press has them “about to walk down the aisle” immediately. So that could explain some of the reluctance. Until then we’ll just over analyze their every interaction.

    They’re playing games with the media because they have $hit to promote. Meh.

  2. Wibble says:

    Damn that’s unfortunate, I hoped she would hit the skids, become so depressed she would date me and I could love her back to funny.

    Ach well. Just proves funny women can be gorgeous.

  3. Jen (the other one) says:

    She’s gross. Totally don’t get her appeal, at all.

  4. C says:

    I still am surprised how a pothead like Kimmel never gets pressure from ABC to get off the pot before showtime. He and Sara ALWAYS look stoned. They’re a good pair.

    Hey CB – the “new” ads for slow down loading your pages so much I’m starting not to read them.

    First the banner at the top loads and plays it’s little annoying animation, then the banner below that loads and plays, then finally the one below that loads and plays,and then about the time I’ve fallen asleep the post finally appears. On all the pages that are fortunate enough not to advertise that website they load right up. I’m on a high speed cable connection, so it’s nothing to do with that. Maybe you could stop some of that animation so we don’t have to sit through it 3 times?

    Sorry for the off-topic post.

    They should just cut the B/S and get married. Like them or not, they are a good match.

    Hopefully Jimmy learned his lesson.

  7. gg says:

    These two look so much like eskimo twins.

  8. Jinxy says:

    He cheated on Sarah, and the chick he cheated with is still on his writing staff. How bad are your self esteem issues? Apparently not as bad as Sarah Silverman’s.

    Once a cheat, always a cheat. She’s just postponing the inevitable.

  9. boobaloob says:

    Um, Bruce and Demi aren’t together anymore, Sarah. Yeah, great analogy there.

  10. Lauri says:

    Uh, boobaloob: it is a great analogy; you just don’t get it. She meant that they are broken up, but still good friends…just like Bruce and Demi.

    Understand now?

  11. Jeanne says:

    Right, except neither are good-looking.
    I’m with Jen the other one, I don’t get their appeal either.

  12. CYANN says:

    They are such a cute couple, I wish them nothing but the best. I really admire Silverman for admiting how much the break up hurt her, while she was going through it. Too many celebs will only discuss the pain after they have composed themselves. She has a “realness” about her I find refreshing.
