Best Couple That Could’ve Been: Amy Poehler And John Stamos

Posted by Leslie Simon on October 28, 2014


Since divorcing fellow funnyman Will Arnett, Amy Poehler isn’t actually single and ready to mingle these days. (She’s in a serious relationship with comedian and longtime friend Nick Kroll.) However, following the end of her marriage, it turns out the Parks And Recreation star entertained some unexpected suitors… Like John Stamos.


The geek goddess recently appeared on The Howard Stern Show and opened up about her post-marriage dance card:

“I remember I was at dinner with John Stamos… handsome men are really something elseā€¦ We were having dinner and I was like, ‘Oh, maybe this is a date!’ But I didn’t know. “But I kind of blew it… I remember thinking like, ‘Oh, s–t. Like, if this is really a date…’ I think I was wearing a Leslie Knope top. I think I was wearing a shirt from work.”


Sorry, but that sounds like the best non-date/date ever.


Sadly, Poehler didn’t bone Uncle Jesse. Maybe he should’ve serenaded her with “Forever.” After all, “If every word I said / Could make you laugh / I’d talk forever.”
