Olivia Munn is pregnant with John Mulaney's baby: Part 2!

He announced it on Seth Meyers’ show.

More gossip, rumors, and pointless bitchery about one of the best and messiest celeb scandals/dramas to unfold in public view—and on the DL—for quite some time!

Just saw that Part 1 is completely full at 600 posts and is now officially closed—and this “love child” isn’t even born yet, nor is the the divorce with Mulaney’s wife even settled/finalized....

After doing as thorough a search as I could on DL, I didn’t see any part 2, so I’m making the official part 2 here.

I’m not the original OP, but I’m linking Part 1 (which was fun and filled with tons of great speculation, rumors, and tidbits from alleged “insiders”) immediately below this post....

Have at it, kids!

“Candid” pap pics of the “happy couple”/parents to be out and about together in NYC on Friday, September 10th just a few days after Mulaney’s big announcement on Meyers’ program.

Nobody (according to various media outlets) seems to know either way if the two are actually still “a couple”—and Mulaney’s seemingly uncertain body language/hand placement on Olivia’s back in this pic doesn’t exactly help to make the picture any clearer....

But anyway, Munn had seemingly just been in L.A. for and walking around conspicuously alone and heavily pregnant for months until Mulaney made the big public announcement on Meyers’ show—and then they are spotted together for the first time in a long time in NYC just a few days later.

Who knows what the *real deal* is with all of this (any insider info welcome on this thread, btw!), but—to me at least—in these few most recent pap pics of Mulaney and Munn here, Mulaney doesn’t appear to be exactly beaming with happiness, joy, and peace for whatever reason...

(Or maybe he was just having an “off day” for any number of other reasons...)

Mulaney and—we know now—an already pregnant Olivia Munn at a “lunch date” in Los Angeles in June, 2021.

This was months before the pregnancy was announced and months *after* it was announced that they were dating, but it was the first time the pair were actually seen (a.k.a. photographed) together in public....

Okay, last starter thread comment/link from this part 2 OP:

Bitchy (and fun ;) Page Six article blatantly questioning the “timeline” that Mulaney provided—unprompted— to Seth of the entire Munn/Mulaney relationship (and pregnancy)—as part of his carefully worded baby announcement appearance on Seth Meyers’ show—where he went to great lengths to lay out a super tight timeline of his “eventful year” he had that makes sure to give the appearance that he *only* began “seeing” Olivia in “the spring” of this year and never ever cheated on his now estranged wife with her at any point during the courting and knocking up process......

There are a few rumors I’ve read now that Mulaney is practically broke at this point and financially at the brink of complete ruin (first and foremost apparently) because of the type and ferocity of his drug habit: apparently he was paying for “top end” cocaine, and lots of it—whatever “high end” coke is (I don’t know, since I’ve never been a part of that world—along with the various other pills and things he was taking/buying (the types and quality of which he was apparently particular about, it sounds like from what I’ve read online from fans who have attended his new standup shows and shared some of the “confessional content” contained therein).

He allegedly even mentions in these shows (which to be fair most fans reporting back are saying are really funny and enjoyable/well done) that his drug spending was *so* out of control that at one point in the very recent past he actually had to ask his accountant to step in and cut off his money from him so he wouldn’t spend it all.....

That sounds pretty serious—and this was *before* factoring in the cost of massive amounts of long, plush rehab stays, a divorce from his wife in a marriage that allegedly has no (or next to no) pre-nup involved, *and* a brand new baby and baby momma, *all* happening concurrently with a year + where almost all work in his industry dried up because of an unprecedented pandemic.

And almost everyone in the recovery community—along with a lot of fans and some media—were super critical of the guy for going “right back to work” with a big, multi-stop comedy tour so quickly after getting out of rehab because they took it as a sign that he wasn’t taking his recovery “seriously” enough.

From what I’ve read, I don’t know if the guy really has a choice right now.

If these financial rumors are true though—and that’s not even including the info of the alleged DL “insider” (who is allegedly friends with members of Mulaney’s inner circle in NYC) who said here *months ago* that Mulaney’s wife didn’t have any kind of job that contributed to the household financially and that she spent “a lot” of his money every year on a posh lifestyle (and shopaholic tendencies?) to the point that Mulaney was begging her to “cut back” because he couldn’t afford that level of money going out every month when he was the only employed partner in the marriage and was still working on building his career in the industry—I can’t imagine the mental stress and hell that guy is going through at the moment, and the tour *likely* wasn’t a flippant and “destructive choice” as much as it was a *necessity*.

I agree that Mulaney has made many seriously bad decisions, seems dangerously and unnecessarily self-destructive, and has probably done multiple people closest to him very wrong, but I do feel some genuine sympathy for the guy.

The financial hole (*alleged* financial hole, I know—although this particular gossip topic about him has come up repeatedly in online forums and from alleged insiders, etc.) that he has dug himself into, with untold additional financial pressure coming as a result of the divorce, baby, and baby momma, would overwhelm anyone.....

It also makes me feel (since he did a lot to get *himself* in this position) that he might have some real emotional and mental problems that need to be seriously addressed beyond a rehab thing and that it is more than just a “drug problem” and an “addict needing to stay clean” situation with him.

by Anonymousreply 8September 15, 2021 7:39 PM

(Continued)

His life seems overwhelming and—now with the negative and serious financial rumors—like a seriously uphill battle (that, yes, I get he largely created this himself), and it explains the immediate countrywide tour *right* after rehab (which most addiction and recovery experts would apparently strongly advise *against*), and him looking so *beyond* stressed on Meyers’ program (his body language and micro-expressions while talking about his current life, Munn, and the upcoming baby, etc., were *very* telling).

I think that Mulaney is a talented guy and a very good comedy writer and even though he obviously is very flawed human being and can be a total jerk in his personal life, I don’t wish him ill at all.

I genuinely hope that he prevails in his sobriety (and with his career, altered however it will be after these big scandals and the *major change* in his public image), and that he gets the help he really needs for what seem like some serious (and sad) emotional and mental health issues that go *beyond* any drug problems....

I don’t know what the deep seated mental/emotional health issues *are*, but I do hope that he (like anyone suffering from similar issues) gets the right help and properly addresses and recovers from these issues before it’s too late.

I really hate seeing people self-destruct and throw away their lives and their potential (no matter who they are), so—regardless of all his well documented flaws—I hope he finds recovery and healing and is able to find and live a life of purpose and happiness (and start taking his life in a new and good direction) before it’s too late. I really do.

I can understand going back to work after leaving rehab because everyone needs money.

I don’t understand getting into an extramarital relationship and baby mama mess, directly after leaving rehab. (Or resuming it, whatever the timing is..)

But is he still into Olivia? Does he despise her at this point?

by Anonymousreply 13September 15, 2021 8:25 PM

He's in a bind and I too am suspicious of the status of his relationship with Munn. He has no choice but to imply they're in a relationship. This is all clean up by his PR. I suspect in a year or so it'll be made known they're not together romantically but are loving co-parents, good friends and he's very grateful to her for being his light after a long time in the dark tunnel of addiction. She'll always be special to him.

I wonder about his career. The suit thing and the middle-American accent helped. The choice by many fans to take his insinuation that he was very dark was simple self-deprecation and him being too hard on himself and strong values. But I also think the type of woman he portrayed his wife as being set him apart. She wasn't a typical comic wife. Most comics no matter who they are the wife is portrayed the same. Wants him to spend more time with the family, wants him to remember her birthday, wants him to be nice to her family, blah blah blah. Wants him to notice when she's made an effort, wants him to tell her she's still hot. Just trope after trope.

Tendler was portrayed as a woman who took his tentative disclosure of possible cancer as tentative disclosure of a #MeToo event. "What did you do!?" A woman who is not thirsty - seriously, go cross country to go through the motions at the Emmys? She said no thank you.

Her taking a clusterfuck at Delta airlines in stride and then being - well there are other airlines. And most of all her not giving a shit what other people though of her. Her being observant. She was a good offstage foil for him.

It's like he got out all the info he wanted out, of course fudging the timeline and the real events, and now is pivoting on to putting it into his material. "I said I was gonna be a father and it got mixed reviews." Too soon. This is where I suspect the empathy absence. It's sensitive and you have to give it breathing room. You have to read the room and not be like, well, that's done - here's the new stuff! Find middle ground that isn't your love life.

She's incorporating all of this through her own photography and I think it's brilliant. She's completely entitled and actually what she's doing with her art is more interesting than what he's doing with his act.

by Anonymousreply 14September 16, 2021 1:05 AM

Want to add re Tendler that whatever the state of the marriage in reality he liked using a personality like her in her act, that she wasn't boring, and he really enjoyed telling the stories of how she reacted to things or her observations. She wasn't a pushover and she could take herself out of the equation when they had conversations. What's gonna be in his act now? Baby stories? Someone awkward seeing sexts Olivia sent him?

by Anonymousreply 15September 16, 2021 2:15 PM

R15, actually... you bring up a good point to this armchair psychologist. Olivia Munn isn't really the plus ultimate "bombshell", the most "intellectual" hot actress, the authentic "nerd sexy chick" - her niche seems to be as a hotty "with a personality". I could see her coveting the wife's role as main subject of hipster Mulaney's comedy. That idealized niche space in millennial culture as a beloved, worshipped object.

That was all a lie r8, you know that right? That insider was telling us Tendler didn't have a job at all while John was going on interviews talking about how they were living temporarily in DC while Tendler worked at the Smithsonian.

I think it was the same lying pretend insider who said a couple weeks ago that having a Masters degree and working at the Smithsonian wasn't really a job. I mean that's just ridiculous.

There was a Modern Love column years ago by a long-married wife whose husband asked for a divorce while having an affair, and she told him to essentially do what he wanted for the next year and she and the kids would live their lives as normal. He came home after six months and said he had been crazy and he wanted their old life back, and she took him right back.

That’s what I imagine Mulaney is wishing he could do now. Instead he got his mistake pregnant.

by Anonymousreply 18September 16, 2021 5:37 PM

John liked having his cake and eating it too. He could fool around and then come home to his wife. But when Munn got pregnant that put an end to it. Yes it takes two to tango, but I would bet he has some resentment towards Munn for screwing things up.

And that's why I thought it was funny when she said the "mommy squad" was so supportive. I said this in the old thread, most mommies are not celebrating the side piece's pregnancy. They also probably are leery to have their husbands around her.

by Anonymousreply 21September 16, 2021 5:56 PM

Yeah R21 Munn is trying to normalize the situation by claiming the mommy squad had gathered round.

Tendler's work is going to be exhibited in L.A. soon. She's always worked. She's in the arts and has done different stuff from make-up (prior to Hello) to niche youtube comedy for Amy Poehler's channel to her archival work, her lampshades, etc. It sounds esoteric but people make their living doing exactly what she's doing.

I totally agree John liked having his cake and eating it too and then his side piece got pregnant and careerwise he saw no good options. I fully believe "career" is his number one priority at all costs and always will be. Also suspects he likes a certain amount of destablization and chaos, but he'd chase that on the side. Now it's at the center. Despite him claiming to have left the marriage in the fall there's stuff in December where he's still talking about his wife - not his comedy sets - interviews. They were together for years then married for about six and very abruptly she's switched out for Olivia Munn as his SO. I think Tendler was his organizing principle.

He said so himself. About 12:15 in this video he says if he and his wife ever have children they'd have to name them "Comedy" and "Career" otherwise he wouldn't care about them. Later on "sober" John he talks about being high at his bachelor's party and a Clippers game, then turns around and says he never smokes pot.

I think his stans thought he was a good Catholic boy with very grounded moral values and they took everything he said about himself in that context. Someone who holds himself to a high standard and confesses when he's fallen short. So when he's telling on himself they just think it's sweet. I don't think most of them envisioned him as a guy who'd go to strip clubs let alone have sex with strippers. For his drug use they lean into what they imagine is the vulnerability and pain driving the drug use and are vague about what his use looks like.

And then they make up scenarios about his marriage - trying to find a narrative that excuses him. She's terrible, she's cold, leaving was part of getting healthy, blah blah.

When the reality is a rich and popular party boy who knew how to get away with shit. Who knew how to work it. Someone over on reddit who was in high school with him says he's not surprised by any of this.

I saw Dax Shepherd on some talk show describing how rock bottom isn't always the turning point because it wasn't for him. His rock bottom was a weekend - a three day weekend - and then he listed what he got from his "pill guy" and the quanties and variety were mind boggling. Then booze. Then beer. And he woke up three days later having consumed all of it, no memory. It was supposed to last a week and he hoovered it up in a weekend.

I am torn between him attempting a "Modern Love" scenario down the line, trying to get back with the wife, or his PR trashing the wife. Rather than live in a gray area a lot of people make an enemy of an ex because it's less messy. Him sending an email to her lawyer that he was gonna go public with Olivia and the baby news on Seth and "hope it's not too painful for you" was casually monstrous as someone somewhere else said so I'm suspecting a campaign painting Anna Marie as dysfunctional and toxic is in the offing. I also read his PR was chasing women he'd been with and asking them to sign NDA's saying his wife was suicidal and the info coming out would push her over the edge.

Was a mess. And him trying to paste a redemption story on it? Everyone knows who will be sacrificed but I think his wife won't let that happen and she's smarter than him.

by Anonymousreply 30September 16, 2021 7:04 PM

I have a feeling there's some slam dunk proof he and Munn were fucking around last year, and maybe even before, and it's only a matter of time before it leaks. Tendler has some powerful friends of her own, Munn has made lots of enemies over the years, and when Mulaney and Munn try to hide the birth date (I bet they try to bribe TMZ to not pull the birth certificate) to protect their story someone is going to make sure they get called out. And even if that doesn't happen, Munn will spill eventually because she can't help herself. She's been setting up almost daily pap shots now that Mulaney has admitted to the pregnancy, she's been practically bursting (no pun intended) for months to show it off.

by Anonymousreply 31September 16, 2021 7:15 PM

She has been bursting - so to speak. Back in May she's on the red carpet and in hindsight obviously pregnant and posing in profile.

She could have finessed the situation so nobody suspected but she wore something that was sort of "I'm casually pregnant here in case anyone wants to notice." Not as trashy as wearing bodycon but still doing a hiding in plain sight thing, dressed for comfort and her midsection obvious.

by Anonymousreply 32September 16, 2021 7:33 PM

She could have hidden the entire pregnancy and birth--many far more famous women have, especially during this pandemic. Women who are legitimately sought out by the press, not ones who only get photographed when they stage it.

Keeping things private and low key likely would have been the healthier route for him and his sobriety. But that's not her priority, even if he feels now like he has to pretend she cares that much. And I'm not saying it should be her priority because he fucked up his own life and chose to share his baby batter with a thirsty asshole. They truly deserve each other.

Poor kid is already fucked for life by an addict dad who publicly says it's supposed to "save" him before it's even born. I seriously hope on top of that there's nothing "wrong" with this baby in her eyes. If it ends up fat, disabled, or with Asian eye folds it's going to have a horrible childhood. And I doubt he can be relied on to step up.

I was trying to find that too r44, the closest I got was an LSA thread that mentioned Mulaney had texted Tendler's attorney and it was reported on ONTD, but it must have been a comment. ONTD lags too much for me so I didn't try too hard to find it.

by Anonymousreply 45September 17, 2021 11:17 AM

R44 and R55 I found that stuff on from either LSA/Reddit/ONTD. It was a series of links. You might try looking in the Deux Moi section of Reddit to get to it. I was in a rabbit hole when I saw it and didn't track how I got there.

Essentially it was insiders spilling a bit of Anna Marie's side that included Mulaney's text to her lawyer. It also said the part about his PR trying to chase his hook-ups and getting them to sign NDAs saying Anna Marie is suicidal. They also use Anna Marie as an excuse to try and get people to stop spilling, saying they're trying to "protect her". The insider says Anna Marie doesn't need it (protection), and also says she already has a bf. In this same tea drop or one adjacent to it it says at one point he had an apartment "to write in" apart from the marital apartment and when she came over she saw every sign of a bender. And she also knew he was hooking up - doesn't say if she knew about Munn or who he was hooking up with.

That his MO was f*cking FANS or at least trying to, by sliding into their DMS. He would claim not to remember trying to hook up (drunk). They're not sure if he followed through or was just doing DMs.

The narrative his fans are trying to spin is he relapsed, went into rehab and as part of his recovery ended his marriage. Trying to link his marriage to his drug problems and now that he's clean he's ended his marriage, found a new girlfriend and re-starting his life.

The truth is obviously a hot mess of him trying to stay married and have his side action until Olivia Munn produced receipts that the baby was his.

I can’t believe Seth let him do it. Seth must not be a fan of Annamarie’s— he’s certainly taking sides here.

by Anonymousreply 47September 17, 2021 5:53 PM

I’ll bet Mulaney was questioning paternity because Munn got pregnant five minutes before he went into December rehab.

She probably didn’t even know she was pregnant when he went into rehab.

He comes out and SURPRISE! You’re gonna be a daddy!

But…. I haven’t seen you in two months!

I’d be skeptical too.

Which makes it all the more hilarious that he apparently is the baby daddy. What a stupid ass.

Now it’s fairly common knowledge among their friends that he tried to deny the kid. Thus the flowery, over-the-top overcompensating language he used on Seth’s show. Damage control for his earlier not-my-kid bullshit.

Again, this is strictly 16-year-old-boy behavior. A grown ass 40-year-old man plays it smooth and supportive until some discreet testing can be done.

by Anonymousreply 48September 17, 2021 6:07 PM

I don't think he wants to be where he is. Bet I wishes he'd rather be married and doing his degenerate stuff on the side. It stands out that he went to DC and lived there with his wife while she worked at the Smithsonian. Yes, Covid, but the DC situation wasn't permanent and he could have kept up appearances by commuting like lots of couples do.

He never got around to actually claiming Olivia as a SO. He had to imply it because if he didn't he'd just come across even more super rachett than he does already. So she's wonderful and incredible and the outcome of their "meeting in the spring" is "We're having a baby" but he never defines what they are (Whereas Anna Marie was his girlfriend then his wife).

The messiness of the rollout. Well, the situation IS a mess and that's gonna show no matter what the PR. And he probably procrastinated so it makes the last minutes rush and divorce timing look sloppy. I also think he relies upon his adorability factor to get past this. He's always worked both sides of the street, "I look like this, but I ACT like this and nobody believes it. They believe I act the way I look."

And everyone took it is a clean cut guy calling himself out cause he's an honest clean cut guy. They never took it as "This clean cut thing is bullshit - it's the suit and the face; your assumptions are wrong.. I'm a dirtbag." And he knew he was being cute hiding in plain sight but also sort of mocking people who believed he was a nice guy but then also hiding behind that persona when convenient.

IOW I think he believes charm can get him through it.

It's a brain chemistry thing, and it's hard to fight because the people love the drugs, booze and pills. Their brain chemistry sets them on that road and then starts needing it. Very very hard to break. Most people who have been to rehab relapse. He's got the kind of lifestyle that enables his problems. Maybe in the earlier thread was when someone said they wish there was a halfway measure for alcoholics and addicts instead of being "clean" because clean is so hard and there goes the release. If there was a way to have a dependancy that was in the gray area and not the life-threatening/destroying area it would be great, but I guess a lot of people have dreamed about that one. If you're able to just do this stuff recreationally then you're not an addict.

Ok, so I was over on the "deux moi" section of reddit again, only not being Mulaney-centric. There's a series of threads called, "I have tea on...." And one was one Colin Jost sliding into fan dms to hook up, even after getting engaged to Scarjo. Then some additional tea that he dated some other SNL cast member and cut them out of sketches after the break-up.

So the dm thing could be part of the SNL culture for this generation. It's also classic asshole. I think a different generation or type of cast member would make more of an effort. Here it's just like, "We can grab a fan." Like the demographic is there on their instagrams and it's convenient so why not shoot out a couple of invites, see who takes the bait then you never see them again. They're like kleenex. There's just this whole groupie pool accessible on insta.

Maybe I'm being silly but my gut says that the real story isn't this Olivia + baby mess. Did he get involved with an underaged fan? From what I've seen, the type of guy who displays a ton of arrested development and fixates on childhood is also the type to get over-involved with young people to relive or rewrite that part of life. It strikes me as weird that a man who doesn't want to have kids is so interested in them. He writes a children's special and so much of his comedy is fixated on childhood. It's just enough to raise my eyebrow a bit. He was starting to get dragged for the fan hookups. There were a couple of girls who spoke about it on social media but that story disappeared with the Olivia rollout. Was bringing in Hollywood's favorite beard the best shot at a distraction? I don't know but I'm sure it will all come out eventually.

This is the only situation I’ve heard of where Seth Myers is acting less than upstanding. Usually he comes across as a bit holier-than-thou, sure, but a solid and ethical guy.

by Anonymousreply 58September 17, 2021 11:53 PM

R58 I read Seth Myers also cheats and with the same MO (randoms) but this was awhile ago and it was on the usual forums - reddit primarily. It's funny but now that I read about Jost and the past few months about Mulaney and then a couple of years ago about Seth, they all seem the same brand of douchebag and not so covert entitlement. Only difference is iwhether the douche-baggery is compounded by substance abuse.

His fans treat Mulaney like an angsty twentysomething. But he knows exactly what his appeal is, exactly how to play within the lines and in the margins and outside the lines, when to step out and wink and when to go back and allow fans to think - he was just kidding.

If I'd never read anything about Mulaney or seen him perform, and if some entertainer comes on Seth and goes, hey, so quite a year - in the fall I left my wife, later in the fall I went to rehab and then in December I went to rehab a second time, and then in the "spring" I met an incredible woman and now ... we're having a baby." I'd see shitshow and damage control all over that just based on that stupid timeline. Nothing about that timeline is compatible with an authentic reckoning with addiction. In fact, I'd probably piece together a storyline pretty close to the truth. And that's before we even take into account who the baby mama is and her history.

by Anonymousreply 59September 18, 2021 12:12 AM

I don’t think Mulaney will have to worry about child support. She has money and has already gotten the prizes she’s wanted: to snag a funny/educated/dark/puppy dog who is on a short leash and a baby. All she’s doing is fulfilling her bucket list. They won’t stay together. He’s probably hanging at Pete’s house going, ‘fuck, fuck, fuck!’

R90, I don't know if they expected him to emerge from rehab with Olivia Munn pregnant and him leaving his marriage. The timeline overlap is obvious - she's probably been one of his side pieces for a long time. It does, IMO, look almost as if they (the intervention) went behind his wife's back and are complicit in this Olivia stuff but I understand family is often not invited to interventions in order to lower the temperature of the event. I don't have the link to the "those at the intervention are not happy and are gossiping as much as anyone" but it's part of a reddit post saying his dad is a big time lawyer and Annamarie has her own issues and is not talking while the NDA/divorce settlement is being worked out. By own issues I'd imagine the reported ED.

LSA is tearing him apart. I appreciate that LSA just calls things like they are and doesn't pussyfoot. LSA dragged up an old tweet of Olivia Munn's that is believe it or not addressed to Kobe Bryant right after his death. She talks about how she was looking forward to their "brainstorming" meeting and talking about their ideas. As someone on LSA said, WTF would "brainstorm" with Olivia Munn. It was like, "I'm letting the wife know Kobe and I were close." His wife was not even mentioned or consoled in her tweet.

If he's financially circling the drain which I can believe (the amount of coke and quality, the pills - also part of it), not to mention expensive rehab stays, then the Seth situation becomes necessary as Mulaney was embarking on an extensive tour that will in part replenish his bank account. And have been adding shows. The Seth appearance was both clean up and a come on/hype. If you still support John, he's a little bambi now who is not on coke! If you don't, come see the train wreck!

Linking the page on LSA where the Kobe Bryant tweet can be found. If it doesn't work here is the transcribed tweet (I was wrong that she didn't mention his wife, she does at the end).

"Kobe. You were such a wonderful friend. Always positive and thoughtful and supportive and reliable and so, so bright. One of the brightest souls I've ever seen and I am absolutely devastated by this.

We were supposed to get together this week to brainstorm more parts of the world you were creating at Granity Studios. You were creating a whole big world from scratch - everything from the continents to the oceans and rivers to the trees and even the leaves on the trees.

The last time we talked I told you my idea about what the night sky would be made of. I was inspired by friends of mine who lost their 4-year-old daughter to cancer. When explaining to their younger daughter what happened, instead of saying that her sister had died, they would tell her that "Billie turned into a star." To this day, if you ask her where her sister is, she'll say "Billie etoile."

We wanted to help kids be less afraid of death and tell stories of all the little and big stars... And now you're one of them.

Sending all of my love to Vanessa and your daughters.

Rest in love my friend. I'll look for you in the sky."

R94 her worst would be pretty bad. For starters she could reveal when they first hooked up. My guess is a long time ago. She probably knows a lot of his other habits/other hook ups.

Maintaining what he thinks is his reputation is important or he wouldn't have laid out that timeline on Seth.

Maloney's core fans are desperately spinning there was no cheating. They are committed to the notion he was unhappy in his marriage, that Annamarie was the wrong woman and a dysfunctional marriage contributed to his relapse, and Olivia is part of his recovery. He and his PR know all this. It's also obvious to me anyway from the pictures of Mulaney and Munn since the whole thing came out that the vibe between them is not a happy one. Makes me believe the story he didn't believe he was the father for months.

He doesn't want his wife to know the full extent of his dirt baggery. Don't know what legal recourse she'd have if any but if she's committing the prime of her life to him including her reproductive future (rumor is she had her tubes tied for him) and he was playing her, that's not good.

Audiences wouldn't appreciate Mulaney on tour talking about his wife as usual while a very pregnant Olivia Munn was going around saying he was the daddy. Organizing everything around his drug problems, rehab and recovery probably looked good to his PR team. Big problem was the baby mama. Hooking up with Munn reveals more about Mulaney than his hard core fans want to know. They're busy trying to put a halo on her head as we speak but it's not staying put.

According to Mulaney’s timeline, Munn would be about 4-5 months pregnant. That’s IF she immediately got pregnant the moment they started dating. Which seems unlikely for a 40-year-old woman.

She looks way more pregnant than that. Her bump doesn’t look huge… but the rest of her does. No shame in that— a lot of women gain all over and then lose it immediately. But it takes time to put on the weight. That’s not 4months pregnant.

Living with his wife in DC really messes it up for his fans who insist he has been separated for a year. In NY as long as both parties say they've been separated the requisite amount they can even live together because that's just what's practical in some cases until things are sorted. The courts aren't checking the sheets.

He could have said he was commuting to see his wife while she worked in DC on a gig. It was a gig, not a permanent job. Instead he says he's living with her there while she's working at the Smithsonian. Or he didn't have to stay anything at all.

I think he was hoping one of half a dozen other guys would be daddy and was dragging his feet. It IS like Shelly Winters in Place in the Sun and even more in the Dreiser book it was based on where the pregnant ex just won't be ignored.

True about how dark comedians are. This is one of the most interesting celebrity scandals ever. I've posted before that I think his fans minimized Mulaney's drug problems and if anything thought he was exaggerating them because he has so much integrity. They do not really picture debauched whore lying blackout drunk/addict.

We've got his clean-cut persona, his fairly original comments on his marriage - she's not a typical stand-up wife - and we've got the absolutely lowest common denominator mortifying identity of the side piece/baby mama. His age. Baby mama's age. TWO interventions. An attempt to spin the timeline. An almost frantically booked tour to rake in the income.

by Anonymousreply 128September 23, 2021 7:35 PM

I’ve seen several interviews in which Mulaney talks about how he was able to “keep up appearances” with his parents when he was a teenaged addict.

He’s fairly fixated on this idea that he was able to fool everyone.

He also seems to think that as long as everything APPEARS to be ok, that’s the same thing as things being ok. (I am very familiar with this mindset, having grown up in a family and a town where this was the prevailing attitude.)

He seems to think he is “special” and is the one guy on the planet who can handle his drugs and every one should STFU and leave him alone.

I would like to know what events/behaviors led to the interventions. I know he’s made some jokes in his act, but they don’t really disclose what led to the intervention.

by Anonymousreply 129September 23, 2021 7:45 PM

ITA R129 and I think he probably didn't fool his parents as much as he thinks he did. Because at other times he mentioned his parents being exasperated with him because he thinks he's cute - IOW, knows he's cute and how to play it.

He has this whole riff about how his wife said to him you're fake with your parents and he said yes. And she said and your act is fake and he said yes. And then she said we've been married awhile, and he said yes. And she continued, and I think we'll be together a long time (well that didn't age well).

So she concluded saying "So you'll never know what I think of you and I'll never know what you think of me." It seemed like a tongue in cheek kind of thing but I agree that he prides himself on being unknowable and all that bullshit dysfunctional people tell themselves. Also although this is armchair psych shit, doing the shit he does is a way to make sure nobody knows him. It's like this circle.

He's too old for that sort of vanity. "Nobody knows me." Get out.

His mom seems like she might be / have been a drinker.

Add his inability to be his gay self and possibly being targeted by a predator (his comedy heavily hints at this in many ways), he’s a bit of a perfect storm.

There are definite genetic propensities towards addiction but when you're nearly 40 you should have taken them seriously. Not just done this rinse repeat.

Knew people who worked with a now deceased very wealthy lawyer who had every vice under the sun. My friend told me "He doesn't go to rehab to get better. He goes to re-set his baseline before starting it all again." The guy was late 40s/early 50s at the time and was dead before 60.

Getting milk from cows has never been your thing JOHN. All told there may be eight cows and you didn't get milk from all of them."

So that's on purpose. It's funny-ish, but it's also painting him as sexually conservative or at least not as experienced as most men. Not good with the ladies. Certainly not a guy banging countless strippers and fans, which is closer to reality. He's misdirecting all over the place.

Some people who were awkward looking as kids never get past feeling like an awkward wallflower. (Bill Clinton comes to mind.)

In Mulaney’s head, he’s still that awkward virginal teen.

So, he feels entitled to claim both “identities.”

Even as he’s banging strippers right and left.

I wonder how hard it is to get past it. In college I knew a girl (theatre student) who was pudgy. Lots of curly read hair, not a bombshell. About 40 lbs overweight.

Between her junior and senior year she lost that weight and returned for senior year looking like a botecelli angel - clouds of hair, wraithlike body, got with the hottest guy in the theatre department who was actually pretty hot (and became semi-famous). The adjustment didn't seem to be much for her at all.

By most accounts Mulaney was popular and did fine with women from high school on. If he was awkward as a tween or early teen did he really think that singled him out? How many cool tween's and high school juniors are there? I think he knows what he looks like and the projections people like to put on him which is mainly "I think he's cute - but most people wouldn't" and plays into that. Reality being whether his fans like to think it or not he is cute and can get it.

Is that the routine where his father didn't want to go to Clinton's alumni fundraiser at Yale? His father just didn't like Clinton - probably for the same reasons he criticizes John (using charm to get away with shit).

His father is on youtube at some conference talking about fairly progressive stuff so I don't know about being conservative politically. He's conservative personally. I love the story of him asking a kid at a theatre if the kid was going to keep talking the entire play. That's my kind of guy.

In the bit about Clinton Mulaney says they all knew each other "at college" but that's not true. They knew each other at Yale Law School. I see his parents as midwestern which is its own thing, even when you're Democrat it looks different than it does on the coasts.

His dad did donate to Rahm Emanuel. His firm Skadden Arps donates entirely to Democrats. Huh.

I'm a liberal in the Midwest and I know liberals are not the same here as on the coasts, but his description of his dad does not at all resemble the kinds of liberals we tend to get out here. I'm not saying the description is true, but I am saying that I don't necessarily agree that his dad's "socially conservative" character is because he's Midwestern.

Ok, that's just my impression of midwestern types. It could be just Charles Mulaney being Charles Mulaney.

Following this thread made me read a little bit about comics and they're almost all disgusting people. The men are. Louis CK is repulsive. Even before he got quasi-cancelled I noticed his narrative that the stuff he said out loud were part of the common universal experience - he used himself as the norm who just you know was brave enough to say it. A lot of the stuff he said was about violent sexual impulses and that's not the default. That's him. And SOME people. I think it's on purpose too. He knew he was a deviant but used his stand up to normalize and said it in a way so people were like, "Yuk yuk that strikes a chord!" I always wanted to ask a fan so when you return a book to the library all you can think of us how much you want to whip it out and beat it in her face? Really? What part of this can you relate to?

They're also just chasing laughs, that's it. They're not the truth tellers. Maybe George Carlin but I take it back if it turns out he was a disgusting human. They had behind this "Don't censor me, I'm pushing the envelope of discourse!" Shut the fuck up. It ain't that serious. The fact that most of them are miserable isn't the audience's problem either.

Watching John Mulaney (research for this thread!) he called out a guy who was on his phone. He didn't beat the guy up - he pivoted into a different story and then left him alone, but the tone he used when he said "Are you on your PHONE?"

I'm not on my phone when I attend an event but if the venue is lit up so my screen glare isn't bothering people and I'm not talking on the phone but looking at my phone or even closing my eyes and taking a nap I haven't committed any sin. They are all just so self important and such control freaks.

His father didn't like Bill Clinton because his parents went to school with Bill Clinton.

John said that Bill used to walk girls on-campus home as part of a safety program.

One night Bill asked his mom if he could walk her home and she said yes. She told John they walked arm in arm to her dorm and she wanted to invite him up for a beer but didn't.

This happened during the time his mother was actually dating his father and John said, his father has hated him ever since out of jealousy since his mom obviously had a crush on Bill even back then and was still a fan of his.

I don't believe either Mulaney or Munn. If we parse it, right NOW is the end of the year. We're in the second half.

I saw Mulaney's bit about Clinton. I think Clinton was just not Charles Mulaney's "type" of person. I like Clinton but he's slick. John Mulaney is also slick.

Jerry Seinfeld's wife was just married to a Nederlander (theatre owning family) when they hooked up after meeting at the gym. It was very suspect for her motive-wise because if you swiftly upgrade during your honeymoon it casts aspersions on why you married your husband to begin with. Nederlander didn't have an ordinary bank account. Jerry Seinfeld's wife now looks like a boy for what it's worth.

A few years ago I was crossing the concourse at Rock Center and nearly slammed into someone. I had to look up to see who and WTF it was Jerry Seinfeld. I'm a woman and tall but he came off as TALL. My head was fully tilted back. I didn't actually collide and looked up to say excuse me but when I saw who it was I thought, "Nah." It was instinct and I think I was right. Just keep moving.

Mulaney has really being building a narrative that covers his ass while acknowledging his addictions while encouraging the rest of us to think how bad can it be - he's a moral person. One is his implication he's not a womanizer and has limited sexual experiences. Another is his comment on Jerry Seinfeld's stand-up bit where Seinfeld takes off after how movie theatres over charge and rip you off, so after shelling out that money Seinfeild is not going to clean up his own trash but will just "Open my hand." Mulaney commented how cold that was. (Not to mention out of touch - the rich movie theatre operators aren't the ones cleaning up Seinfeld's trash.) And Seinfeld goes, "That's like saying, "I'm gonna leave my wife and kids because I'm GOD!"

Look at him now - a guy who is fucking around left and right and had Olivia Munn as a side piece during his marriage until he came up pregnant and then he swiftly departed his marriage and tried to clean the whole thing up. It was cruel to his wife how it was handled.

That's if it even happened.

R154 I read that stuff. I like Anna Marie Tendlers art and I thought it was cool that some SNL people and alumni came to support her (Molly Shannon and some writers).

While I'm in the Mulaney rabbit hole I came across some backlash he apparently got hosting SNL on Halloween last year saying it made no difference which "old man" was elected president. He had to go remote on Kimmel for a mea culpa. On Kimmel he again says his wife and others were like "WTF" when they heard the joke. He said he ran it by himself in a "field in Connecticut" and we know that's where his wife lives. So this was November and he was in Connecticut with his wife, not moved out. In fact it seems to me he clung to his marriage until Munn turned up with a bun in the oven. He could have easily been "I'm working for Seth and sometimes appear on the show so I'm in our apartment during the week and with my wife on weekends." and "My wife is in DC doing a Smithsonian gig." But nope. He goes to Connecticut and goes to DC.

He also used his mental health as a reason, mentioning he was working for Seth because "I need a boss - I'm not good running things myself." and he needed assignments to complete. That his therapist told him he (the therapist) was not optimistic about Mulaney's ability to thrive without structure.

Just the fact that Tendler turned the "year from hell" (per a friend who posted on her insta) into art shows IMO that she knows how to turn chaos into structure. At least now she's doing it for herself and not him.

As others have said I bet he seriously regrets leaving his wife and obviously regrets getting Munn pregnant. But it may be the best thing for his wife in the end.

I wonder if Munn regrets this. She's not getting the hype from this she probably anticipated, even though People magazine is doing its best.

I was REALLY put off by that, I thought it sounded strange coming from the "horse in a hospital" guy, especially since Mulaney was a Bernie fan and Bernie's older than Biden or Trump. It never occurred to me to see if anyone else was irritated by it, guess I should have.

There's another Kimmel appearance on December 2nd where he talks about the Secret Service questioning him about the joke about Roman senators knowing how to "deal with" a troublesome leader, and he says that he and Annamarie are living in DC together right across the street from the Secret Service headquarters.

I don't think he's trying to protect Anna Marie from anything. Those bills will be handled. Can you imagine it getting out that his ex wife, whom he's already done so dirty, was on the hook for his rehab bills too? Already rumors are Seth Meyers paid for rehab.

Mulaney's PR team has to stop the "protect" stuff when he's clearly not. I mean just the remark to Seth that meeting Olivia Munn at Seth's wedding was the one good thing from Seth's wedding (John was there with Annamarie who was his fiancee' at the time).

This lying on Seth's show should prove that to all of you. I wouldn't doubt it if he's not drinking and/or using prescription drugs right now. Famous drug addicts hardly ever think drinking is "using"

The most important thing about sobriety is being completely honest. Getting caught in lies that people can google the truth in less than 3 minutes is sloppy and insulting. Although most of you actually believed him.

And if his dad works for Skadden Arps, his dad is a shark. Not some midwestern bumpkin. His dad must be mortified his son has handled all of this so poorly and told such pathetic lies.

Read an unverified rumor that he's started to incorporate his cheating into recent stand-ups.

If so, trying to get ahead of the narrative.

I think Kevin Hart and definitely Chris Rock have incorporated that into their sets, but wondering if it would work for Mulaney. His persona was choirboy no matter how he alluded to his drug use. He's laid plenty of groundwork for addiction, not so much for being a cheating dog. In fact, he went the other way and painted himself as terminally awkward with women. Prior girlfriends cheating on him, him having "about eight" previous relationships, not all of which he was successful in consummating. I think this stoked the fantasies of his millenial fanbase who loved the idea of him being "their" type but not every girl's type. You know, made him seem accessible to them in an alternate universe. Would womanizer Mulaney sell?

Also the situation is pretty sordid and wondering if it could be spun to be gallows humor and the sort of "that's life!" thing he used to do.

Rumors of strippers and college student dms have been around about him but Munn was the tell. If some SNL writer had gotten pregnant by him (other than Lindsey Shookas) he could have spun the cheating as part of his addiction spiral. Goes to rehab, comes out, leaves the seedy hook-ups behind, starts fresh with a new gf, having a baby.

But Munn. Not only is she enormous, which wrecks his timeline, but it's Munn. She's not the girl you come out of rehab and begin again with. And nobody normal or less Munn-like would have gotten pregnant by a married stand up comic addict in the first place.

And she's already torpedoed his shaky timeline by revealing to People that's she's due this year just to get a sad little puff piece. I wonder how many people in LA are laughing at him behind his back for knocking up a toxic person even the dumbest horniest douchebros had the sense not to procreate with.

The next time Munn says something like that "so if you're mentally retarded you get to win?" tweet at r33, Mulaney will ignore it. He's been trying to ignore all of this, and what he can't ignore he's tried to lie his way out of. He's a child. His current stand-up might be successful because everyone wants to see the trainwreck, but he spent a lot of time building up the persona he just ruined, and I don't think he has the chops to build another persona.

There will be 3000-word thinkpieces about "John Mulaney's new start" which will "go deep" and the usual Twitterati will post it as "essential reading" but I don't think that will translate into a new phase of his career. I don't know how much the SNL folks will be able to help prop him up.

Interesting, I have the opposite impression. I think he's well-liked by a lot of industry folks and they don't want him to relapse (or at least not as badly as last year). And that's why we're not hearing any mocking or WTF was he thinking from his fellow mean and fucked up comics. Mostly they're staying uncomfortably quiet about it or showing him some awkward support. Munn of course is benefitting from that goodwill as well, for now at least. Because notably no one has said "hey, they're great together and they're going to be great parents, I'm so happy for them." Not even HER industry friends (if she really has any). Even Seth with John sitting right there was awkward as hell in congratulating him. So that's a pretty good sign that no one is really excited about this, but they are all going out of their way not to show it. If it were practically anyone else who knocked her up in such a spectacularly fucked up fashion they'd both be relentlessly mocked.

That's an interesting point r184, I was thinking that the uncomfortable silence and lack of "I'm so happy for them" statements was indicative of a lack of support from the comedy world in general, but maybe you're right, maybe they're staying quiet to help him out a little.

Part of me wonders if a lot of comedians just don't know him that well, because most of the projects he was involved with were part of the SNL/Nick Kroll group. If you're a comedian who doesn't work with that circle of people maybe you just don't get a chance to interact with Mulaney much.

Meh, she had options. She chose to get and continue a pregnancy with a days out of rehab still married lifelong addict. She said a few years back she froze her eggs to make sure she had a baby option when she was ready, so it's not as though she was in a now or never situation. She wanted both the pregnancy and the identity of the baby daddy public, when far more famous women have easily hidden one or both. I doubt she's that bothered since this gets her more attention than her rapidly dwindling career ever did, and she's had a lifetime of practice being slammed for asshole moves that she just pivots from with uR jUst jEAloUs hAteRZ.

Plus she's not without a partner. Whatever the true nature of their relationship, they're together right now--she's with him on tour (she actually has a small movie out there she has totally sandbagged promotion while she's following him around) and they've made a point of being seen together repeatedly. John is going to stick to the "she's so wonderful and supportive" script for a long long time, and she'll milk that for all it's worth. I think people are floating that they're not a real couple because they're still clinging to this idea that John can't really be as stupid/awful as being in a relationship with Olivia suggests. He doesn't deserve that benefit of the doubt.

And while she's been a real asshole in the past, you just wait and see how much bigger an asshole she'll be now that she's got the mommy PR sword. Same for John--he'll continue papering over his assholery with the new spin of "I'm just a recovering devoted dad on Bambi legs trying his best!"

I'm sure this has been said a million times before but the most interesting aspect of this is where Mulaney will go career wise. His fan base had a high percentage of liberal but still straight laced young women who thought of him as a slightly troubled but " nice" guy next door. That is a highly unusual fan demographic when it comes to stand up comics. 90 percent of male comedians are followed and liked by other men and would likely not be highly affected by something of this nature. He might have been less affected by this if his image had been rougher and more male centered to begin with. I think he will be better off going darker and weirder in his routines. Time will tell.

[quote]...the most interesting aspect of this is where Mulaney will go career wise.

Quite possibly so.

Where his career will go, if it does not go entirely down the shitter, will be off to the writer's room. His days as a public face are numbered.

Probably not by this stupid entanglement with Olivia Munn and a baby this fool can't possibly parent. And not because of his ex-wife. Because of his addictions.

The addiction problem is a FAR more serious problem in a show biz career than any baby. You can always pay a stranger to raise your kid, if you're successful. But you can't miss deadlines. This bullshit with his bullshit personal life will be just one more messy bump in the extremely messy ride that he has made of his time on Earth.

by Anonymousreply 192September 29, 2021 1:29 PM

I agree his addictions are his biggest danger career-wise, but don't underestimate the damage the inevitable baby mama drama can do. When enough time has passed that the shady baby origins no longer matter, Olivia will not hesitate to shank him and insinuate (or even say outright) he's a deadbeat, a bad father, using, abusive, closeted, or anything else she can think of to either punish him when he doesn't go along with her demands or does anything or fails to do something that puts her role as the hottest most awesome most perfect woman he's ever had into question. She already blew up his timeline lie just to get a lame little People blurb, imagine what she can do with teary barely veiled hints about the horrors of trying to coparent with a dangerous addict, or that she gave it all trying to make it work because she really loves him and their child but he just used her and resents the kid.

No one in the audience he wants will have any problem forgiving him when his "relationship" with her doesn't work out, but they won't forgive even a hint of him bailing on or doing anything to hurt his child.

The 'timeline' angle to this saga is bullshit. The baby will be born on some specific date. And everyone will count back nine months and there is the end of that mystery.

For the sake of Mulaney's 'timeline,' this baby better weight 3 pounds when it's born. I suspect will weight 10 and a half pounds.

R198 not any sadder than coming on a thread in a *gossip forum* lecturing people speculating on a juicy bit of gossip that’s going to yield trainwreck dividends for years to come.

There are far stupider topics that get many more threads and posts than this one, but I manage just fine by ignoring them. Because really, what point is there in trying to shame people on an anonymous forum for posting about Harry and Meghan or whatever else?

R194 of course the timeline is bullshit. He couldn’t even sell it as he was telling it. The mystery is how could Mulaney be so stupid as to think he could trust Munn for long enough to even attempt to make it work? The most generous interpretation is he thought she’d keep her mouth shut until after the baby was born and then they could do damage control with cute baby pics. But even that still makes him seem really stupid because since when is she capable of even that tiny bit of discretion?

R181 I'm curious about the good will in the stand up community outside SNL too. It was a couple of female comics on Tiktok who dropped the tea Munn was pregnant back in May. They're self-admittedly not in Mulaney's circles but some in their circle are in his and that was the rumor going around.

The stand-up community can be clique'y and unwelcoming to women and these two women low-ish on the totem pole had no problem dropping this info on their tiktok, and they've followed up on it too. They're not worried about being ostracized or gigs drying up.

Mulaney once said his father criticized him for using "cuteness" - meaning in manner and personality not just looks - to get away with shit when he was younger. He might be doing that in his professional life too and outside SNL people may be sick of it.

A long time ago I read Seth cheats too so this is just the boys club doing clean up.

by Anonymousreply 200September 29, 2021 3:35 PM

Reading between the lines (of interviews he’s given), it seems Mulaney originally crafted his schoolboy persona to be able to get away with making raunchier jokes. He presents the raunchy stuff as things other people have said to him.

Now, why can’t a grown ass man just own his desire to make raunchy jokes? Goes back to his “keeping up appearances” obsession.

I truly think he’s still letting his parents’ opinions control him. That isn’t normal for a 40-year-old man. This might explain his apparent rebellions (Munn, drugs.)

I still want to know what caused his severely arrested development. I guess it could be the death of his brother, but I fear it’s something much more ominous.

Ah, I wouldn't put it on his parents. Two of their kids are comedy writers. His parents may be Catholic but he's a Chicago lawyer and she's a law professor.

A lot of comics aren't raunchy. Mulaney's riff about how if you say something raunchy in terms of someone else having said it to him you can say anything was a bit. He said it for a laugh. I haven't actually seen it in his comedy. He sometimes uses bits from his act for his interviews, just dialing down the timing and making it more conversational.

I wonder if his sex life is a bigger secret than his drug use. He talks about his drug use fairly freely, although lying about it (he was never high while working = he was always high while working) and putting it as something in the past. But as to his sex life that is a manufactured persona as he presents himself as not that successful with women which is why he was so grateful to have a successful relationship with his girlfriend/then-wife.

Drug use can seem victimless, although it's not. It's something you do to yourself. A sex life particularly outside of marriage is messier, can damage other people and deceive/betray other people. I think he's been very careful to paint himself as not that kind of guy when he is that kind of guy. I don't think he will get anywhere trying to damage his wife or tear her down in any way. But I think his PR would love to slough it all off on her.

I doubt his in a girlfriend/boyfriend relationship with Munn. They were fucking, clearly while he was married and before his rehab - a long term side piece. I believe the CDAN story that they were apart for months because Mulaney didn't believe the baby was his.

Once she's got receipts - and he has to cooperate and not be compelled - he's got the timeline he's trying to pass off of he met her after rehab and she's nurtured him along his new path while incidentally they're going to be parents - OR in between banging strippers, college students and randoms I was hooking up with Olivia and since she was 41 and sleeping with other people this baby shit caught me blindsided. Yes people, this was something I was doing while married.

So this timeline is the best he can do. Although I think he'll modify it and it will be - yes there was overlap but he and Anna Marie were struggling and Olivia really understands him. It'll go from "met in church" to and "very new" to "known each other a long time and at some point it went from friends to romantic although there was never an intention to hurt anyone. Poor Annamarie struggled with the idea of losing her marriage even though it was over long before John left."

I actually don't think anything but the most unflattering - and obviously true - timeline will be bought into by anyone.

I think him having a baby with (one of) the "other women", getting her pregnant during the marriage, and it being this particular woman, is gonna hurt him. Right now his stans are hoping the thing with Annamarie "quietly ended" safely a long time ago and then he met Olivia who is misunderstood. But that won't work.

Nobody will hold it against the kid but I don't think his fan base are going to forget how the baby came to be. If his fan base was the usual stand up fan base, he'd be fine and could work it into his set. But it's not. It's mostly millennial women, and probably mom types too, who think of him as a particular sort of relatable person.

by Anonymousreply 208September 29, 2021 5:35 PM

I don't think industry types are keeping quiet because he's well-liked outside the SNL bubble. It's because they all fuck around and it's just that John Mulaney got caught. They can't be calling him out for this when they, too, married or not, are using social media to hook up, are banging strippers, and if an Olivia Munn crosses paths, they take her up on it. A lot of guys are probably just relieved Munn wanted Mulaney's baby (or wanted Mulaney and the baby is how she accomplished it) and not them.

The addiction recovery is easier to show support and concern for. Not all of them are addicts to the degree Mulaney has been. But they all behave as he does. Possibly not Patton Oswalt but I wouldn't even back that up with a bet.

True, R210. I worked with a guy with a very, very similar background. I’ve never seen someone more desperate to blow up his life, for no apparent outside reason. He wasn’t famous, so it was harder for him to find a side piece, but he did finally find someone to cheat on his wife with while she was pregnant with their third child. I’m not sure where it got him since she dumped him when she found out and he wound up marrying the girlfriend. Now they have a combined 6 kids between them. He still looks dead behind the eyes.

If he were smart he would have simply insinuated Olivia was part of his desperate spiraling out of control, but he'll take responsibility and do his best to be a good father and support her as a co-parent. Whatever horrible thing she could have exposed about him would be spun with "yeah, like I said I was strung out on drugs and she was right there taking advantage." It would have worked especially well if the wife really was willing to forgive and repair their marriage. Olivia would have been left seething as the unpicked one and the more vengeful she got as he was piecing his life back together, the worse she would look.

Instead he seems to have looked at all his options and since none were good he just decided to go with the worst one.

R218 Mulaney had a LOT of goodwill heading his way when his trip to rehab was announced and then his release into sober living. People can understand being in a bad place with drugs and mental health problems and lying and doing really bad things during that. I think he could have weathered it, again especially if the wife was standing by him. What people have much less tolerance for are continued lying and bad decisions when you're supposedly "sober" and "happy" and not even having the sense to throw a kind word towards the wife while you're publicly humiliating her with the consequences. I think long term he would have been better off hanging toxic Munn out to dry quick so the worst of it would happen early and be over with. The road he is on, the worst is is yet to come.

Tendler doesn't seem uptight to me at all, particularly if you look at her art. She seems introverted which isn't the same thing.

From Munn's POV, I think she's made the Marilyn Monroe mistake. Not that Munn is Marilyn Monroe. But when men considered "intellectual" or accomplished got with Marilyn, she thought it was validating that she was more than a bimbo. When the reality was they just wanted to bang Marilyn Monroe. They weren't like, "Wow, she's actually a woman of substance or I, Arthur Miller, would not want to marry her." So Munn thinks this makes her cool and proves she's more than a party girl, when really it just exposes John Mulaney as a sloppy party boy.

I was reading the Marc Maron reddit about his WTF interview with Mulaney. Maron was a little skeptical about Mulaney's slick persona - and it is slick. He said if he has no idea who the person is after an hour, he gets suspicious.

I listened to the interview. Mulaney is fairly candid about his early drug, drinking and pill consumption, although he doesn't particularly break it down. Which is the real hook? Drinking, drugs or pills? I also don't believe what he is telling Maron, which is that he's been sober for nine years (this was in the early 2010's).

What Mulaney is not candid about is sex, and I think that's the thing he is burying. Let's pretend that he relapsed in 2020 due to Covid, and he spiraled. Previous to that he was still fucking strippers and college students left and right. While married. And sober? Or is that part divorced from his sobriety. Sex is the thing he is guarding.

Even with Maron, when he mentions his marriage, he says he and his wife were friends for months before starting dating, and that his own take on their romantic chemistry was he'd been friend zoned tons of times in the past, and when she finally emailed him about their flirty dynamic, he took it as her telling him to back off, that she wasn't interested.

So in the Maron interview he's pushing that - this girl and I had this vibe, I assumed she wasn't into me as so many girls have not been before, and I was ok with that. Then she emailed me acknowledging our thing, and I thought, well she's just making the friend zone official in case I get any ideas. So it took awhile to sort out she felt the same and now we're so happy.

But and except he's fucking strippers and college students since time, and as one reddit comment said, he after party's the after party and fucks anything that moves. But not a hint of that in his stand-up. His stand up tells us about his drinking and drug use, even if his persona encourages us to minimize the severity. But his stand up concertedly discourages us from thinking of him as someone fucking around and constantly hooking up. Which he is.

R232 there are fans on reddit posting things like, "When did he ever tell us he was wholesome?" and pointing to his frequent references to drug and alcohol use, a degenerate youth booze and drug-wise, frequent references to a dark side. He also referenced his dark side on Maron's show - one half of him is a gorilla trying to kill the other half.

So there's a pseudo candor. He's consistent on stage and in interviews more or less. But when it comes to sex he paints the opposite picture of what appears to be his actual self. He portrays himself as someone with limited sexual experience relatively speaking, who was cheated on in long term relationships, and who is frequently friend zoned. He went into this on Maron's show, which wasn't a stand up set. That he and his wife were close friends for awhile and when she sent him an email acknowledging more than that, he misread it and thought she was telling him to stop flirting with her. Because that's what he was used to.

This is not the truth and it's intentional. I think he knows an audience will be sympathetic towards his drug situation, particularly as he simply describes himself as being a jerk when he's on drugs without giving specific anecdotes. His fans who do concede maybe he did hook up with strippers and "slide into" college students' dms also seem to be under the impression he hooks up with strippers and college students when he's "spiraling" when this appears to be habitual on drugs or off, married or separated.

by Anonymousreply 233October 1, 2021 12:21 PM

PS and it obviously seems to be an important part of his image that he's protecting. The whole "taking it slow" and "met in church" at first with Olivia Munn even as she was probably well into her second semester at that point. Then the timeline on Seth Meyers which had him clear of his marriage in fall 2020 and not meeting Munn again until spring. And painting the Munn relationship as boyfriend and girlfriend - he never actually said it but wanted people to infer it.

I don't believe Munn forced his hand with the parking lot pregnancy photos. Two seconds after his divorce was announced People or some other celebrity rag reported he and Munn were in the early stages of a relationship. FF and he goes on a Burger King date with Munn for the benefit of People magazine. And I'm forgetting the time she was papped leaving his house, which I also think he was completely in on.

Then finally she's papped in a garage while pregnant and he goes on Seth. I think they were doing the, "Mom's not feeling well." "Mom's sick." "Mom's in the hospital." "Mom's dead." routine, easing the info about Munn out there in stages and he was on board for all of it once he realized he was the daddy.

It goes to his persona. He has no problem portraying himself as half nice guy and half drug fiend. But he concertedly portrays himself as someone who doesn't have a knack with women and whose auto-response is to assume there's no interest or he's been rejected. He has explicitly summed up his sexual experience in his life as approximately 8 people. Yes, his act is his act. But he did an interview with Marc Maron shortly after he was married, saying initially he thought his wife (previously his friend) was telling him to back off/knock it off, and he was accustomed to this.

There is intentionality to this. He is someone whether relapsing or not cheated regularly on his wife with strippers and college students, as the initiator. And obviously with Olivia Munn and who knows who else. Now that he's "caught" he did a phony disclosure on Seth trying to make it pretty, and trying to make the Olivia thing appear to be an event that occurred as part of his recovery process, after he was out of rehab and after he'd left his wife.

IOW he does not want to be associated in any way with his actual behavior with women or in his marriage. IMO because it doesn't fit what his fans want. They can incorporate the emo troubled drinking/drugging dude but not the womanizer - womanizer drunk or sober. Now he's got his ass hanging out and we'll see how much his PR tries to maintain or if they'll invent another spin.

One woman worked for some industry concern (show business) and went to the bathroom, passing Nick Kroll and Mulaney in the hall. She said they gave her the eye and it was very uncomfortable and also very rude. It wasn't an "you're interrupting us and we're going to be quiet til you pass" look, it was the up and down.

Something about a substance dependency makes him seem vulnerable, while a high sex drive combined with willingness to cheat makes him seem like the predator (in a jungle way, not a “sex pest” way). He geared his persona to the former and tried to outrun the latter.

I don't think it was just the realization that he cheated that registered with the person who met him.

It was only two minutes all told and they were not alone, and she doesn't seem to have been putting out flirt vibes, yet the vibe she got back was "creep."

Don't be pigs. No one is more promiscuous than gay men. They brought a plague upon the world. I've never heard of Olivia Munn, though I might have been her in a video game? She's a very generic looking. Avatar.

John Mulaney is just say it.....very homely. And wide hipped with far apart eyes and fat ankles. He's got chromosomal damage. Liv Munn just appears to have had several surgeries. She's a normal gal who really really liked Mulaney's stage persona. Because otherwise he's a fucking mess.

Remember your true Allies. John Mulaney is not gay. Or gay friendly. His Irony is as funny as that other perverts. Louis C.K. Often funny. Full of rage. tiny tiny tiny little dicks

Heard from a birdie who knows Mulaney from the LA comedy scene:

Baby is due end of October

But who knows when birth will actually be announced.

by Anonymousreply 257October 4, 2021 4:12 AM

That would mean she got pregnant while he was still in inpatient rehab. How did they pull that off? I doubt with Covid restrictions she was allowed into the facility. Did he have day passes?

He has tour dates these two weeks and then end of Oct into Nov. So was he not planning on spending much time with the newborn?

Based on his tour dates alone I would assume she's due late Nov. or Dec. But I wouldn't be surprised if she already gave birth considering how unusually quiet she's been.

R259 No, we're already at week 40 of the year. He went into rehab before Christmas, so more than a week before the end of 2020. Her due date would have been in Sept if they conceived right before he went in. Because of the way the due date is calculated there's a 2 week window pre and post due date that are the true range of when the child could be born if it goes full term, and even with that she'd have given birth mid Sept at the latest if they conceived pre-rehab.

Gestation is roughly 280 days and he went into rehab around December 20th, the news came out December 21st, making her due date Sept 26th if she'd gotten pregnant before rehab.

He got out around February 25th per news articles so if she got pregnant 15 minutes after he left, her due date would be around December 2nd.

Anything in between now and December 2nd means Mulaney was either sneaking out of rehab or not ever actually IN rehab.

Even if he legit successfully completed rehab, using his day passes or whatever access was allowed to hook up for risky sex with trash like Munn, and before he asked his wife (who was also in treatment) for a divorce, is just horrible optics on top of colossally bad judgment. Even if it didn't happen until he was in outpatient sober living, it's still skeevy as fuck.

And what the hell is wrong with HER? Hovering around in PA to sneak in hookups with an addict in his second rehab trip in a 3 month period. And not making sure she *doesn't* get pregnant. What a desperate predatory POS.

I wonder how many STDs they passed between them.

I don't really get the obsessive math and timelines about the baby.

He cheated. Period.

Even if the math all works out and he split with the wife, went in and out of two rehabs and then reconnected with Munn in LA and knocked her up, he's still a cheater.

Why?

Because this is simply *too much shit* in one year to have just cropped up out of nowhere. There is NO way it was all just fine + dandy between him and wifey and then suddenly *boom* he's going doing tons of drugs and they're split up and he's playing the field and impregnating randos.

There is a build to to this kind of thing. A momentum. We're seeing the aftermath because, at a certain point, it just got too big to hide. *Literally.* But all the machinations and sneaking around and crap that was a precursor to him blowing up his life are hidden from us.

But those things were definitely going on too. And I guarantee it was for more than just the last year.

He probably had a routine he had perfected and was spinning all the plates and getting away with it and then COVID hit and made that lifestyle unsustainable. Exposed him.

And everything came to a head.

Those who have seen his current show over on reddit are mostly of the cheering section, standing o, just want to give him a hug ilk. But a woman came on saying she and her husband have followed his comedy for awhile and even previously went to Kid Gorgeous. They said they found him boastful, that his references to his past year are more tinged with arrogance, that he's smarter than and all that. Her husband wasn't impressed. I don't think he has the chops to make mean work for him in stand up. He has always channeled that stuff through an experience with someone else. Never his own POV. There are comics who have a sort of lived in vibe to them that some sort of aggressive or arrogant vibe, if it's played right, can work for them. I think John Mulaney developed the whole Mulaney persona because that worked for him. The haircut, the suit, the hapless out in the world person. Just starting "from scratch" and deciding to let more of his asshole vibe fly is, IMO, not going to be that funny but that's kind of where he's leaning.

I also suspect that while his struggles with addiction are real, he knows he has the audience's sympathy and uses it to manipulate, particularly now. Less so (obviously) the dogging around.

Pretty sure Seth Meyers got married outdoors in Martha's Vinyard, not a church, which is where Munn and Mulaney apparently first met. I think they've been hooking up for years, concurrent with his marriage. As soon as he knew she was into it, he added her to his roster.

by Anonymousreply 295October 9, 2021 11:19 PM

The PR spin was grotesque, particularly after his wife's adroit, "I am heartbroken" comment. It was like, never mind, dustbin her, here's a new narrative and it's so charming, vulnerable and funny! We're sure putting John on Late Night will neatly steamroll anything Tendler's friends have to say. Isn't he as adorable as ever?

Callous and tone deaf. The more they tried to be breezy, smart, and relatable, the worse it was. The most horrible part was Mulaney saying that meeting Munn was at least one good thing that came from Seth's wedding. It was like, "aren't I a bad boy but I'll own it and that's how I get away with it!" They were both gross. Seth Meyers behaved like a daddy nervously but proudly watching his kid show off a skill he learned in public for the first time.

In the first week, it seems as if PR employ a whole bunch of people to sweep through social media and gossip forums shaming people with a negative response, while commissioning "think" pieces like, "John Mulaney doesn't owe you squat!" Whose idea was it to pivot from, "Divorce" and "Heartbroken" to "aren't he and Olivia Munn a sweet cute new couple?" And that parasocial fuckery.

It's like real people are just garbage - out with AM Tendler, in with Munn, nobody's a real person here, it's all a brand. This was also how the Oprah stunt with the Harkles played. For a week in comes the think pieces and the social media bots controlling the narrative.

But then a week later the real reaction sets in. And it's not good.

I’m repeating myself, but one of the grave dangers of raising a child in Catholicism is the huge risk of arrested development.

Mulaney is going through teenaged milestones.., at the age of 40. He’s trying to weigh the relative merits of the trashy slut vs the good girl… AT AGE 40!

Personally I’m team trashy slut… but I’ve known that about myself since age 17 or so.

John’s arrested development isn’t cute, or interesting, or funny. It’s tedious.

@298 Agree. It's pretty remarkable that two middle aged rich people had a surprise baby. They are too old to not understand how reproduction works and they are too rich to not have access to a boatload of contraception options. Part of me thinks that John was feeling manic, Olivia was feeling desperate and they actually tried to get pregnant. He said in that Seth Meyers interview that the baby will save him from himself. Maybe actually believes that and thinks that's an ok reason to bring a life into the world. His bestie Pete Davidson has said on a couple of occasions that he just wants a kid because he things having that to focus on would give him a purpose and help with his mental illness. Maybe that thinking rubbed off on John too. Sigh. I can't believe how stupid these people are but it's a very real possibility.

I don't think Mulaney is working through stages of Catholicism. I think he's a huge spoiled bitch in rebellion against being called to account. I read on reddit (so consider the source) that in his opening remarks in his act he says more of the "youth" like "My ex, Anna, better" . WTF is he doing.

I think a lot of assholes get the "Traumatic childhood" narrative instead of the "spoiled bitch" edit they deserve. Being spoiled and enabled leads to arrested development as much or more than trauma, IMO.

Chip Mulaney (his dad) and his law firm are big supporters of Chicago's Midtown Educational Foundation program which helps Chicago's poor, at risk youth navigate middle school and high school, and get into college. Mentorship, connections, resources, etc. Goal being to help the kids have skin in the game, and where possible, help the parents have skin in the game. So imagine Chip Mulaney (who looks EXACTLY like his son plus 40 years) putting his time into helping kids whose parents are disadvantaged, kids whose communities are impoverished, drug plagued, etc. and trying to navigate that. Then his own son who is legacy at Georgetown, full tuition paid, Chip takes his son on a trip to Israel after college purely because it's an interest of his son's due to his kid's theology/English major, then his son pisses it away as he has and makes a public trash heap of his life. AND even though it's way too late for that, still thinks he can slither out by playing cute.

So later his wife does an insta-story saying this goes out to (whatever Kacey Musgrave's insta handle is) - how to put a duvet cover on a duvet. It's very funny. Anna Marie Tendler is petite but she shakes out the duvet cover, shows what corners to grab, and then how to get it on the duvet itself with minimal struggle. She's tiny so there's a little struggle but still. The duvet cover goes on and in short order is shaken out over the enormous bed. It's very cute and also on brand since Anna Marie Tendler is like an avatar of competence in many things. There's no edge to it at all.

My guess? She faked the pregnancy (hello Beyonce belly) and he found out, and split. Most of that post is a disaster to read. I used to work in PR (which is why I'm good spotting PR poodles when they show up here) and that's not at all how we talk. The phrasing is tragic. What a fucking mess. That Deuxmoi account is about on the same level as Crazy Days and Lies, in the fun to read but never comes through, so, I will wait to see how this unfolds. That said, no fucking A list cleleb is going to want this disaster, please.

There can't be an A-list celebrity in the world who would date hot addicted mess John Mulaney while his tabloid fodder B-list celebrity side piece is still pregnant with his kid.
