Many people in their 70s are usually at home fighting over whether to watch The People’s Court or Maury, but apparently not Holland Taylor! She’s a horny oldie on a mission, and she’ll slide into your DMs to get some tail. Well, at least that’s how she was with Sarah Paulson. Sarah was on Watch What Happens Live! last night with Billy Eichner, and while discussing if Billy ever had luck finding love on the apps (he hasn’t), it emerged Sarah most certainly has.
Us Weekly says Billy was talking about Bumble and Grindr, which are more for peen and less about everlasting love no matter what BigD8UC tells you between peen pics. 44-year-old Sarah then explained that witty banter on Twitter with 76-year-old Holland in 2015 turned into a nearly four-year (and going!) relationship:
“It’s a long story. We met a very, very long time ago. I was with someone else, she was too then. And then there was, like, a Twitter thing that happened. We were doing a thing at Martha Plimpton’s house. It was for an organization that she was working with and we were both doing a little PSA for it and breezed by one another and then started following each other on Twitter.”
Martha Plimpton, political action, and Holland Taylor? Shit, I’d get lady-boned up, too, if I was Sarah! Billy asked if it was a true sliding-into-DMs situation, and Sarah replied, “She actually did! Pretty great.” You know what else would be great? Having Holland recite all her bitchy law professor lines from Legally Blonde, so Sarah honestly never stood a chance from Hollands first sultry, “sup?” Actually, those two make it very clear this is a REAL love and don’t mind the 32-year age difference. Just hear Sarah:
“I didn’t choose to fall in love with the person I fell in love with. But I think why it’s interesting to people is that, on paper, it’s unconventional.”
Holland has gushed equally as much in the press about her lady love over the years, but I’ll never be able to watch Legally Blonde without thinking how Professor Stromwell is trolling first-year Instagrams to DM offers of “extra credit.”
