Is a certain Bravo host indulging in Taylor Swift’s incredibly sloppy seconds? It’s possible…technically.
After Monday’s taping of “Watch What Happens Live,” Internet detectives everywhere have been feeling their spidey senses tingling over the plausible yet ridiculous notion that Cohen and Mayer—who are, in fact, roommates who recently purchased a house together—are secretly dating. And you know what? I don’t hate it.
Yes, men can be close friends, but holding hands at a Pride parade and moving in together? That’s some next-level friendship. Cohen even went on record this summer while recording an episode of The Howard Stern Show. He told the host that he was “in love” with John Mayer. He even said years ago that he wanted to “make a child” with Mayer.
