That would be Ciara addressing Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson as he asks her to double back for their photo op. Yes, the two seemed a bit confused as they breezed past the reporters and cameras unable to locate the “red carpet” at Tuesday’s Japan state dinner. “Do we stop here?” asked the singer.
That’s right, folks, their Washington date has finally — officially — happened.
And there was no red carpet.
The two quickly realized their missed opportunity and were on their way back to the press line when Ciara, who’s usually quick on her feet, got caught in her dress. (A first official, public appearance isn’t complete without at least one slightly embarrassing moment, right?) Luckily for her, Wilson’s good in high-pressure situations. The singer untangled herself before they made their way back to the press line to pose and answer our pressing question: “Where is grandma tonight?” referring to Wilson’s grandmother, and his date to Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner? “Back in Virginia,” said Wilson.
What a difference a week makes. Remember last week, when Reliable Source reported that the NFL star and “his date” Ciara would be among AOL’s A-list guests at the White House Correspondents Dinner? Then Wilson changed his mind the next day and was taking two dates to the dinner? But come Saturday night it was just him and G’ma.
Looks like he was waiting for a a more intimate crowd of just more than 190 guests to solidify their (maybe) couple status.
So which is better, WHCD or this, he said, “I haven’t been in here yet.”
