Dane Cook Jokes About Gross, Potentially Illegal Relationship with 19-Year Old

It’s not exactly groundbreaking news to state that Dane Cook isn’t funny.

Typically, however, our response to his terrible jokes is to roll our eyes or shake our heads.

When it comes to Cook making quips about his relationship with Kelsi Taylor, though, we need to be restrained from calling the police.

Cook, you see, if 46 yeas old.

Taylor is 19 years old.

The pair went public with their inappropriate relationship in January, at which time Cook referred to Taylor as a “gift.”

This week, meanwhile, in an Instagram Q&A with fans (We know, right? Who knew that Dane Cook had any fans?!?), the so-called comedian responded to a number of inquiries about his unusual romance.

How did they meet, for example?

“At a game night I host at my place,” Cook replied. “We were friends for a while and soon after fell in like with each (other) and then upgraded to love.”

So… they were friends for awhile?

And they actually started dating when Taylor was 18?

Which means Cook was in his early 40s and isn’t just sleeping with a teenager, but he’s sleeping with a teenager who he knew since she was maybe a sophomore in high school?

That is disgusting, borderline illegal and most definitely not a subject to joke about.

But Dane Cook has never met a bad joke he didn’t tell, so he continued…

What advice can Cook give to others in a relationship that involves a large age difference?

The only thing you have to do is plan that your deaths will be somewhat far apart,” he wrote back.

Do their families approve of the relationship?

“I love her family and we are pretty close and go to dinner and hang,” Dane responded, adding:

“My family pretty much all died years ago but @_courtneycook_ my sister likes Kelsi a lot.”

What do they like most about each other?

“Kelsi is smart, kind, creative, loyal & honest. As for me I think Kelsi would say I’m tolerable.”

Back in February, in an Instagram caption, Cook noted that Taylor “is warm hearted, smart, sincere & more than anything else we just click.”

He added at this time:

“I have to say I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time in both my career & personal life.”

Kelsi is an aspiring singer who just released her new album, “Fear of Yourself.”

She has also performed background vocals for Grammy nominees such as Demi Lovato and Little Big Town.

Cook, meanwhile, has dated such stars as Jessica Simpson, Nicole Scherzinger, Julianne Hough and Raquel Houghton.

If Taylor makes him happy, that’s great we guess.

And it is conceivable that two people at these stages of their lives could find true love with one another. Once again… we guess.

But there’s also something sketchy and flat-out gross about a grown man sleeping with a teenager. There just is.

Anyone out there disagree?


Hugh Dane Dies; The Office Actor Was 75

Hugh Dane, a veteran actor best known for portraying a security guard named Hank on The Office, passed away last month.

He was 75 years old.

According to the Los Angeles Inner City Cultural Center, which hosted a celebration of life event in honor of Dane, the actor sadly died on May 16.

As of this writing, the circumstances surrounding his death are unknown.

Dane appeared in such films as Bridesmaids (2011), Little Fockers (2010) and Joy Ride (2001), while most recently having a role on ABC’s The Mayor.

But his death is most notable to television fans who recognize him as Hank, the mostly quiet and hilariously stern security guard on the aforementioned NBC sitcom who didn’t put up with any of Dwight or Michael’s BS.

In the wake of this tragic news, a number of The Office stars have taken to social media in order to express their condolences.

Mindy Kaling, for example, referred to Dane one of the funniest actors “ever,” adding on Twitter:

“I loved writing and acting with him.”

Added Rainn Wilson:

“RIP Hugh Dane, aka Hank the security guard. He was one of the greats. So kind, funny, talented. We will all miss him. Donations can be made in his name to: http://www.innercityculturalcenter.org.”

Steve Carell, meanwhile, kept things short and simple and to the heartbreaking point:

“What a terrific guy.”

Dane had been acting since 1990.

He rose to fame with roles on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Bridesmaids, as mentioned previously, before landing his recurring role on The Office for nearly a decade.

Other TV credits on his resume include The West Wing, Roc and Boy Meets World.

This Saturday, June 9, The Inner City Cultural Center will pay tribute to Dane at the Vision Theater in Los Angeles.

The Inner City Cultural Center is an organization that helps minority creatives foster their talent.

It sounds like Hugh Dane was a really great guy, widely respected and appreciated by all who knew him and all who worked with him.

May he rest in peace.

Eric Dane Sports New Blonde Hairdo in Wake of Divorce Filing with Rebecca Gayheart

Eric Dane’s might be having a major blonde moment in the wake of him and his wife filing for divorce — that, or he’s just really feeling himself … we’re not sure.  The “Grey’s Anatomy” star was spotted rockin’ a brand new ‘do Tuesday in WeHo…


Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane: The Marriage is Over!

After 14 years, two daughters and at least one well-publicized threesome, Rebecca Gayheart and Eric Dane have decided to end their marriage.

Or Gayheart has decided to end her marriage, to be more specific.

The actress filed for divorce from her long-time husband on Friday, with Dane confirming the split to People Magazine via the following statement:

“After 14 years together we have decided that ending our marriage is the best decision for our family.

“We will continue our friendship and work as a team to co-parent our two beautiful girls as they are the most important thing in the world to us.

“We kindly ask that you respect our privacy during this time as we navigate the next phase of our lives.”

Gayheart is reportedly seeking spousal support and joint legal and physical custody of their two daughters: seven-year Billie and six-year old Georgia, 6.

She cited irreconcilable differences as the cause of divorce.

Gayheart is best known for movies such as Jawbreaker and Scream 2 and for a role many years ago on Beverly Hills 90210.

Dane rose to television fame as Mark “McSteamy” Sloan on Grey’s Anatomy, prior to being killed off in 2012 and then landing the lead role on TNT’s The Last Ship.

He took a hiatus from the show last spring due to depression and other mental health issues, about six years after he also sought professional help for an addiction to painkillers.

“I took some time off… I was dealing with some depression, which was kind of odd to me,” Dane explained on July 31 as a guest host on the Today Show.

He added at the time:

“I felt very conflicted about it because I didn’t really feel like I had anything to be depressed about…

“Now I take a medication called Pristiq … and the depression is gone … I’m doing OK.”

“It’s a very serious thing,” Dane continued.

“But it’s very real, and that was the scary thing when you wake up and you’re like, ‘I don’t want to get out of bed’ … this just hit me like a truck.

“I had to take some time off, I went away and took care of it and I’m feeling great.”

In 2009, meanwhile, Dane and Gayheart made headlines after a sex tape leaked that featured the couple in some compromising positions with a third party.

The 12-minute footage depicted a great deal of nudity, a lot of giggling and, we can only presume, a lot of drug use.

The other member of the famous threesome was former Miss Teen USA Kari Ann Peniche.

But anyway.

We wish Dane and Gayheart well and hope they work out an amicable resolution for the sake of their kids.
