Star Magazine has thrown a mistress into the Al and Tipper Gore break up saga, because that’s just how they do. Thankfully, Al’s supposed side piece isn’t a cocktail waitress who is going to sell her story to The Insider and then come out with a dance song in a few months. Al’s own Monica Lewinsky is allegedly Laurie David, the ex-wife of Larry David. Laurie was a producer on An Inconvenient Truth, and a source says that the two have been warming each other’s globes for nearly two years.
Laurie and Larry quit each other in 2007 after it was rumored that she was doing it on the down low with the caretaker of their vacation house in Martha’s Vineyard. Shortly after that, she fell in love with Al Gore while working with him to save the environment. A source says, “Al and Laurie went from friends to lovers. It couldn’t be avoided.”
The source is right, this couldn’t have been avoided. Everybody knows Al gets the hots south of his equator when he starts talking about melting polar caps and tears in the ozone layer. It makes Al just want to pull out a fair trade condom and spray his bio-degradable fluids all in it. And yes, he throws it into the compost pile afterwards.
But Laurie is denying all of this! Laurie tells HuffPo, “The story is completely untrue. It’s a total fabrication. I adore both Al and Tipper. I look at them both as family. And I have happily been in a serious relationship since my divorce.”
True or not, this mess needs to be featured on an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
