Can life get any better for Russell Wilson?
The Super Bowl winning quarterback has been invited to Saturday's White House Correspondents Dinner, the prestigious yuck-it-up show that oft turns into a roast of POTUS. Of course, a event such as this is a plus-one, and the recently divorced Wilson would be in need of a date. Who'd he call?
Oh, just this gal.
No, Russ didn't steal Missy Elliott right off the stage from the Super Bowl. He'll be attending the dinner with pop star Ciara. From The Washington Post report:
Rumors of the pair’s romance first bubbled to the surface last weekend when Wilson was spotted at a Saturday Seattle Mariners game trying to look inconspicuous in dark sunglasses (and what, no uniform?) sitting right next to a woman who conspicuously looked a lot like Ciara.
Neither party has confirmed or denied their coupledom, but thanks to AOL, it’s out there. Ciara is Russell Wilson’s "date" to the White House Correspondents Dinner and the streets will be watching. This is the same woman whose recent single "I Bet" is a Taylor Swiftian sendup of her ex-fiance, the rapper Future, with whom she has an 11-month-old son: "I bet you start loving me. As soon as I start loving someone else. Somebody better than you."
Good for you, Russ. I'm also 99% sure this is the first time Russell Wilson and Future have ever been mentioned in the same paragraph.
The White House Correspondents Dinner is this Saturday night. We'll have pictures and video as soon as they're available after the event.
