The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki Had A Secret Nerd-Affair


Squee! Much like the on-again, off-again lovahs they play, The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki apparently had a steamy two-year-long romance. Even more like a sitcom plot? The whole relationship was a secret…from everyone. Reveals Cuoco, “It was such a huge part of my life and no one knew about it. It was a wonderful relationship but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together. We were so protective of ourselves and the show and didn’t want anything to ruin that. But that also made it sad, too. That’s not the kind of relationship I want — I don’t want to be hiding.” Their characters Leonard and Penny are the fictional relationship we probably think about the most, even if 99% of our thoughts are, “No, not ever. Never in a million years. Uh-uh, no way would this happen. Hell no”.  And now to find that it really happened? Time for us to rewatch EVERY EPISODE FOR CLUES!

The two have since broken up (JUST LIKE IN THE SHOW!) but remain friends. Says Kaley, “When you’re dealing with two professionals who have been working since they were both 4 — and who kept their lives extremely private — we didn’t want anything other than that.” Please, please let life imitate fan fiction and have Kaley hook up with Sheldon…um, we mean, co-star Jim Parsons. We know he’s (probably) not such a painful nerdlinger in real-life, but seriously, we need to see that happen. [Photo: WENN]
