Stephanopoulos voted ‘anchor most likely to be anxious about his wife’s tweets’
ABC anchor makes cameo in story about the conflicts couples have over online sharing:
George Stephanopoulos, the former Clinton White House staff member who is now an anchor of “Good Morning America,” said he was named “anchor most likely to be anxious about his wife’s tweets” at ABC News’ 50th-anniversary party in January. He is married to the comedian Alexandra Wentworth, who has more than 42,000 Twitter followers. “I have sort of a simple rule,” Mr. Stephanopoulos said, laughing. “Don’t ask, don’t read.”
Ms. Wentworth usually refrains from posting jokes about politics on Twitter, although she said it was hard to resist during the New Hampshire Republican debate in January that Mr. Stephanopoulos helped moderate. “Honey, stop sexting me and pay attention to the debate!” she wrote.
“I don’t think he saw it,” Ms. Wentworth said later. He hadn’t. (Mr. Stephanopoulos has more than 1.7 million Twitter followers; his posts are mostly work-related.) Nor had he read his wife’s off-color joke about a suspect stain on a certain candidate’s tie. When asked about it, he stopped laughing. “I’m so glad I didn’t know about that,” he said.
