Ali Wentworth Says Stephanopoulos ‘Started Crying’ For Being Out-Trended By Beyoncé During Comey Interview


Author and actress Ali Wentworth appeared on The Late Show and spoke about her husband’s big interview with former FBI Director James Comey.

Wentworth, wife of ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, told Stephen Colbert that after she was told he was going to be interviewing Comey, she assumed the sit-down was going to take place in their apartment. So she made rice crispy treats and was looking forward to playing “Would You Rather” with her kids. She expressed her disappointment when she learned that the interview was being taped at Comey’s house.

She went on to talk about how they all watched the interview as a family. But apparently they were also fixated on how their father was doing on social media. And he had some stiff competition.

“My girls of course who lives in the social media world, the whole time we’re like, ‘Oh my God, Daddy! Oh my God, Daddy!  You’re #1! You’re trending! Oh no no. Beyoncé. Now it’s Beyoncé. Oh no, no. Now it’s you. Now it’s you,'” Wentworth told Colbert.

She explained that Beyoncé performed at the music festival Coachella that weekend.

“Yeah, he started crying because, you know,  he didn’t want Beyoncé to beat him in the trend,” Wentworth continued. “But then he got back up and it was a fantastic interview and so it was a exciting night for the Stephanopoulos family.”
