Earlier this week, tabloids reported that actress Olivia Munn had gotten engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. A "source" told OK magazine, “Olivia wasn’t expecting it, but they’re so in love he just couldn’t wait.” Isn't that cute? Too bad it's a load of baloney.
OK's source was wrong. The couple, while still together, are not engaged. But many news outlets were all too happy to believe the rumor, and so was Munn's own family. (Obviously, everyone wants these two physically perfect humans to reproduce.) As a way of publicly setting the record straight, Munn took to Instagram. She shared a screenshot of the adorably awkward text conversation where she explained to her poor mother that she wasn't actually engaged.
Munn captioned the image:
Answering yes or no to personal questions can be tricky because if you say "No" it means whenever you say "No comment" that kind of becomes your default "Yes". But since I'm doing press for the next few days, I didn't want to have to answer the same question over and over. So instead, I'm going to let my text conversation with my Asian mom help me out. #Colberto
Nicely handled, Ms. Munn. And kudos to your mom on being so chill after having her hopes dashed. She's a keeper.
