Well, that’s one way to get in the holiday spirit! Antoni Porowski, 35, and Jonathan Van Ness, 32, celebrated the July 4th holiday with a sweet smooch — with each other! Yep, the two Queer Eye co-stars were seen locking lips in an Instagram post that day and it had fans shipping them together as a couple. “I guess Amurica’s birthday’s our anniversary, babe. ❤️,” Antoni captioned his post of the kiss.
Not so fast though — it looks like the two comedians may have just been pulling our leg. A day later, Jonathan shared yet another photo with his co-star and assured fans they were just joking around. “It was all Antoni’s idea 🏳️🌈 but maybe someday we will fall in love @antoni #notacouplebutitwasfunright,” he wrote, making it clear that they aren’t actually an item.
However, that didn’t stop fans from begging them to spark up a romance in real life. “WELL PLAYED but next time maybe for reals? 😏😏,” one fan questioned. “WHY YOU GOTTA PLAY US LIKE THAT 😭😭😭,” another wrote in a comment. I’m suing you both for intentional infliction of emotional distress,” one fan even joked. All in all — fans were pretty bummed out the pair aren’t a couple IRL. “Not mad just disappointed,” one comment read.
Alright — Jonathan and Antoni might still be just friends, but they haven’t completely ruled a future out! Jonathan did say “maybe someday” after all.
