Former Mets pitcher Doc Gooden and actress Bai Ling became close when they appeared on the show Celebrity Rehab. Some rumors said the two have been dating since wrapping the show. They didn’t help matters when they were photographed holding hands while walking through the streets of Manhattan Tuesday. Doc Gooden realized those rumors wouldn’t look good to his wife, so he denied them.
“A lot of rumors are going around about me & Bai Ling. She is my friend just like the other cast members from the show. I am happily married,” he wrote on Twitter Thursday.
Phew, thank god Doc cleared that up. I have no idea why anyone would get these ideas. I mean holding hands with someone who is not your wife is totally normal, right? Maybe it is in the Celebrity Rehab world where missing your team’s World Series parade is also the norm.
