Al Gore and Laurie David, it seems, have a lot in common. They’re both incredible hypocrites who live opulent lifestyles based on money made off other people’s efforts (David thanks to her ex-husband’s work on Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Gore thanks to his corrupt carbon-trading schemes glommed from companies like Enron, GE and BP), they’re both passionately engaged in preventing their fellow man from enjoying a similar lifestyle to the one they leave, they’re both singularly vile human beings and they both destroyed longstanding marriages.
So why would it be a surprise that they were screwing each other? Except for the fact that David isn’t horrible to look at while Gore resembles a well-appointed dugong, that is.
Star Magazine now reports that Gore’s recently-failed marriage may have been affected by the fact he had a two-year affair with David…
Al Gore’s split from wife Tipper after 40 years of marriage was a shock to everyone who thought theirs was the ideal marriage. Now Star can exclusively reveal that the former Vice President was having an affair with Larry David’s ex-wife — for the past two years!
In the June 28 issue of Star, on sale Wednesday, we report that Al and Tipper’s breakup didn’t come as much of a surprise to one Hollywood player — Laurie David. Star has learned that Al has been having an affair with Laurie, who divorced Seinfeld creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David in 2007 amidst reports she was cheating with the caretaker of their Martha’s Vineyard summer home.
“Al and Laurie went from friends to lovers,” an insider tells Star. “It couldn’t be avoided.”
Pick up the new issue of Star tomorrow for our complete story of how the pair, who have been fighting for the environment for years and worked together on Al’s 2006 Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, fell hard for one another — and if Tipper had any clue.
Could this please be the death-knell of Al Gore’s relevance? Hasn’t this discredited, simpering, mendacious windbag done enough damage to those around him and the public at large that we shouldn’t have to tolerate anything he says from now on?
