It’s been almost 3 months since Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama called it quits on their very long (and sometimes very gross-ish) relationship. During that time, I kept expecting to read headlines like “Wilmer Valderrama seen on date with star of Disney’s Frankenstein In Tha House.” That never happened. Instead, it appears Wilmer is not only dating someone he’s dated before, but someone who was born in the same year as him. If the writers of Stranger Things need an idea for a third season, this is it.
Both E! News and UsWeekly are reporting that 36-year-old Wilmer is back with 36-year-old Minka Kelly. A source confirms to E! that Fez from That 70s Show and Lyla Garrity from Friday Night Lights are dating. They didn’t elaborate much on that besides saying that they recently went to Mexico together with a few friends, and that they were seen having what appeared to be an “on a date” dinner in Hollywood on Wednesday night. A source tells UsWeekly they also saw them on a date on Wednesday night (damn, who knew Lyla from FNL had the power to distract so many people from their dinner). Another source tells UsWeekly that they got back together about two months ago. Here’s a pic of them on Wednesday night:

Wilmer and Minka went on a couple dates back in 2012, shortly after she received her deluxe parting gift basket from Derek Jeter. Wilmer and Minka also know each other through Mandy Moore. Minka is best friends with Mandy, and we all know how Wilmer knows Mandy. Wilmer was also seen hanging out with Mandy shortly after he packed up his stuff from Demi’s house. But clearly that wasn’t the in-their-30s brunette actress from his dick’s past that he wanted to rebound with.
So, on the downside, Minka Kelly is once again dating noted sleazeball Wilmer Valderrama. But on the upside, that means she’s not dating Sean Penn. To quote the great Gloria Loring: you take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have…the facts of life.
