Late-Night Love

Jimmy Kimmel Dates a Staffer

It seems that a pattern is emerging in late night talk shows. Jimmy Kimmel’s rep has confirmed that the late night host is dating one of his staff members—co-head writer Molly McNearney. The relationship is several months old and McNearney, 31, reached her current position in 2008 before she began dating Kimmel, unnamed sources told E! News. Lucky for the host, the relationship is without blackmail and extortion, and “during work hours, they keep things professional,” a source told People. This is Kimmel’s first on-the-record relationship since splitting with Sarah Silverman in March. "After Jimmy and Sarah broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked," said the source told People. "They're really happy together."
