Al Gore and Laurie David -- nothing to see here, folks, nothing to see [poll]
When the Star tabloid hits newsstands Wednesday, it'll contain a story alleging Al Gore had a two-year affair with Laurie David, who was a producer on "An Inconvenient Truth," the former VP's global-warming documentary.
But perhaps gossip hounds should curb their enthusiasm before believing that "Seinfeld" creator Larry David's ex-wife was knocking boots with Tipper Gore's future ex-husband.
Laurie David's agent, Dorian Karchmar, told People the report is "completely, patently false." David herself told the Huffington Post that the story is untrue, adding that she's been in "a serious relationship" since her 2007 divorce.
"I have no idea where it started from or why," Karchmar told People, "but it is absolutely, positively and patently untrue."
