The only people other than Mawmaws and Pepaws tuned into CBS who have a reason to care about Katharine McPhee these days is us cagey gays who’ve made a sport of killing off brain cells watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kat Phee has been spotted around Yolanda Hadid’s ex David Foster, so some American Idol dramaaaaaa is safe to assume, right? WRONG, sez Katharine. Continue reading
A few months ago, there was a rumor that 67-year-old David Foster was likely tapping 33-year-old KatharinMcPhee (see them together in a picture from 2006). That rumor was pretty much confirmed the other night by David’s daughter and it seems like things are really serious.
You’ve got to wonder if John Mayer has ever seen a rom-com before. Because his definition of a “meet cute” is kind of sweaty. Last year, after breaking up with Katy Perry, John went on Watch What Happens Live and announced that he was ready to settle down. And then he said he was “excited for a meet cute.” Well, this week he seems to have lowered his expectations and settled for a “meet creep” instead. Page Six says he got on The ‘gram and hit up some lady’s dad, David Foster, for an intro.
That picture of Katharine McPhee and David Foster is old, but I’m using it because I love that it looks like a recently-divorced man and his gold-digging girlfriend who just quit her mall job. The reality is, of course, just a bit different; Katharine doesn’t work at the mall.
A source tells E! News says that 67-year-old David Foster and 33-year-old Katharine McPhee were seen on a romantic dinner date at Nobu in Malibu over the weekend and they treated fellow diners to some heavy-handed PDA.
“David and Katharine were very intimate during their dinner. David was seen grabbing Katharine’s face and kissing her cheek several times. Katharine was doing the same to David’s face and they were acting as if they were a couple. By the end of the date, Katharine sat on David’s side of the table and cuddled him with a blanket.”
Katharine was most recently linked to her Scorpion co-star Elyes Gabel, and before that she was allegedly with the married director of Smash. Since David’s split from Yolanda Foster, he’s been rumored to have been seen on dates with Selma Blair and Christie Brinkley. David Foster told Vanity Fair back in January that this is the first time in his adult life that he’s been single, and that someone told him he’s got to be very careful about who he chooses to be with for the rest of his life. It appears that David is just casually dating. If I were Katharine, I’d keep that in mind and make the most of the limited time they have. For their next date, she should suggest the most expensive restaurant outside of the US. She might as well get a trip out of it too.
It’s been seven years since Nancy Meyers made It’s Complicated. As someone who is a big fan of watching well-off people in their sixties wearing a variety of casual sweaters get their grove back, this story will hold me over until a sequel.
Page Six says that four-time divorcees Christie Brinkley and David Foster were seen on a date Wednesday night at Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar in NYC. They later went to a jazz club and were seen “looking cozy.” I need to know if they looked cozy because they were both wearing off-white turtleneck sweaters. It’s critical to me believing in the Nancy Meyers-ness of it all. The source says that at one point, Christie was pulled on stage and played drums with the band. Oh my god, this is a movie! I bet it’s called Uptown Woman.
Christie and David reportedly met at the Apollo in the Hamptons benefit, the one Casper Smart stupidly bailed on this summer.
I really want Christie Brinkley and David Foster take this all the way to a wedding, if only because I would love to see what would happen after their inevitable divorce. Christie showed us this summer that she could be just as messy as any real housewife when she blasted a rock-pisser outside her house in the Hamptons with hose water. I like to picture that Christie and Yolanda would call up Linda Thompson and convince her to join them in a reality show called The Former Mrs. Davids Club. Oh shit, I’m mixing up my middle-aged women movies, aren’t I?
