Based On Slightly More Than Nothing, It Appears Abbi Jacobson and Carrie Brownstein Might Be Dating


I had not heard this surprising little gossip until Thursday morning, when a tweet led me to Autostraddle’s most recent No Filter post, a series in which they “dissect celebrity Instagrams.” A necessary service, in my opinion, and one that can lead to plenty of surprises, such as today’s rumor that—based on a few photos them together (or with each other’s dogs)—Carrie Brownstein and Abbi Jacobson are a thing.

Are you shocked and elated?! A teensy bit surprised? Do you think this is boring news that doesn’t really do much to either brighten or worsen your day because you have plenty of other things to worry about? If you’re in categories one or two, please read on. All you category three snoozefests can leave this blog right now because I simply haven’t the time for you.

Here’s the deal—and again, it’s not much of one—Abbi and Carrie have posted a series of Instagrams that have suggested to many people (particularly Carabbi fans on message boards like this one) that they are an item. They’re below, begging for your analysis.

I’ve reached out to both their publicists and will update this post if I hear back. As is usually the case in these scenarios, I’m not expecting a response.
