""I've sat with [them] for an entire evening," Lear went on before revealing that the pair has been dating "for some time.""I am as serious as I can be, and I spent an evening at the same table with them, so I know," Lear said with a laugh."As we're driving to the dinner, I said, 'Ann Coulter will be at the table.' [And my wife] said, 'I can't sit at the table with Ann Coulter, I will not sit at the table with Ann Coulter.' And Ann Coulter was a dreamy, delicious, sweet person."As Entertainment Weekly reports, rumors have been quietly swirling for years that Walker, 69, and the controversial conservative commentator, 55, are an item.
