Laurie David, Al Gore, Tipper Gore
Laurie David, Al Gore, Tipper GoreWhen you hear that a couple of 40 years (like, say, Al and Tipper Gore) is getting a divorce you think there has just got to be a reason. Leave it to the tabloids to come up with one: Star Magazine is reporting that Laurie David, the ex-wife of Larry David, has been having an affair with the former Vice President for the past two years.
If it's true, then you can add Laurie David to the list of serial homewreckers.
When she split from Seinfeld creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David in 2007, she ran straight into the arms of a married man -- a building contractor named Bart Thorpe. (Some reports suggest that she didn't wait until her divorce was final to do so.)
What's the connection between Laurie David and Al Gore?
They're both big names on the environmental activist scene. And they've certainly been in some of the same places at the same time, since the two worked together on the 2007 Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth. However, it's unclear whether those places included the backseat of a Prius or a nice secluded, romantic spot on a polar ice cap.
Laurie has denied the affair, telling The Huffington Post: “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."
Apparently, Gore's rep denied to comment on the allegation.
I checked with the most reliable source of all.
The Magic 8 Ball (far more reliable than Star Magazine)

That sounds about right to me.
Still, you never know. After all, it was the National Enquirer who broke the story of John Edwards "love child" with Rielle Hunter.
What do you think? Were Laurie David and Al Gore engaging in a little global warming together?
