ST. LOUIS — Local boyfriend Evan Rowe revealed to his girlfriend, Kate Loar, that he knows the name of the actress from the AT&T commercial that just played on TV.
“I guess I just blurted it out without thinking,” said Rowe. “I’m not sure when I even learned it. Just one of those random facts, I guess. She’s been in some TV shows and stuff and I’m a fan of her work. That’s all. Nothing weird.”
“I’m a big comedy nerd, you know? I loved her web series Live Prude Girls back in the day,” he added, “and I’m pretty sure she was in Silicone — er, sorry Silicon Valley. Fuck.”
The tragic miscalculation occurred seconds after the actress, Milana Vayntrub, appeared on Rowe’s television at approximately 11:15 PM during a commercial break of the NHL playoffs.
“I just think it’s interesting that he would know her name,” said Loar. “I didn’t make a big deal out of it or anything. I wasn’t even upset when I looked through his Instagram follows and noticed that he follows her. But I am a little suspicious because it’s pretty clear he knows exactly who she is even though he tried to play it off like he was just randomly remembering it by chance.”
“He even tried to play it off like he might be wrong,” she continued. “He could tell it was weird and then was like, ‘I think that’s it. Is that it?’ But he definitely knew it. He knew it right away.”
When questioned about this, Rowe appeared to be at a loss for words.
“I… Instagram, huh? Weird,” remarked Rowe. “Are you sure? Huh. Huh.”
At press time, Vayntrub did not return requests for comment despite several attempts to reach her by phone, email, Instagram, Twitter, unofficial Facebook fanpage, and typing her name in the email address bar followed by @gmail.com just in case.
