Jimmy Kimmel is finally happy! After splinting from his girlfriend for five years, Sarah Silverman in March, the comedian has a new girlfreind, Molly McNearney. According to People, Molly is a longtime staffer on his ABC show, for several months.
31 years Molly joined the show as an assistant to the executive producer in July 2003, began writing on the show in 2006, and was promoted to her current position as co-head writer in May 2008.
Kimmel’s representative has confirmed the information. “After Jimmy and Sarah broke up, Molly and Jimmy both found themselves single, and they clicked. They’re really happy together”, one close source revealed.
It seems though that, contrarily to David Letterman’s behavior, “during work hours, they keep things professional”.
