Jamie-Lynn Sigler Likes "Fat Dudes"

You'd think that a celebrity "entertainment beat" reporter would do even the slightest bit of research before they interview a celebrity, right? Think again.

New York Magazine reports that during a recent interview with ABC News reporter Dan Harris, Jamie Lynn Sigler was asked if she thought that "In real life, do you think that beautiful women do or would date fat dudes?" not knowing that in "real life" Jamie-Lynn has been dating actor Jerry Ferrara, aka Turtle from Entourage for over a year. And to follow up his ridiculous and arrogant question Harris asks if Jamie-Lynn does as well. What a doorknob. To make matters worse Harris inserts a segment about how he follows all the gossip rags but somehow still misses this little tidbit of information. The very awkward video is an uncomfortably funny but-I-can't-look-away train wreck.

On her part, Jamie-Lynn handles herself with the utmost class and composure but it's clear that she is deeply embarrassed by this stupid line of questioning. How humiliating. Having said that, I gotta think that her real life relationship with Jerry Ferrara is pretty stressful. Especially because she plays herself on the show and the writers seem to take great delight in pointing out how unlikely their fictional relationship really is. In last weeks episode a sleazy studio executive tries to seduce her which causes Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon) and not Turtle to come to her rescue. In an exchange with Drama the executive says "I'm gonna ram Tony Soprano's daughter from behind". Talk about life imitating art.

Earlier this month Jamie-Lynn appeared on E! networks Chelsea Lately Show where she said that had she known that her role would be this large and lasted this long she would have pushed to play a character with a different name. Chelsea went on to say that Jerry Ferrara looks like her brother on The Sopranos and is confused by the whole real life vs. fictional relationship.

All of this has got to add up to one stressful relationship for Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrara. I wish them luck, really I do. Check out both videos and let me know what you think!
