Celebrities, if you're not ready to come out of the dating closet, do not go on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.'
"How does your boyfriend Mark Sanchez feel about all this?" Ellen asked, in reference to Kate's 'Sport's Illustrated' cover. "He must be proud, right?"
"Well, even if I had a boyfriend. I wouldn’t ask how he felt about it," Kate said, coyly.
Ellen continued: "He would just tell you though. Has he told you? Your boyfriend Mark Sanchez? I’m just guessing that it’s him. Is it him?"
Kate responded: "Do you want it to be him?"
Great deflection. Ellen replied that yes, she did want it to be him. Why, Ellen?
"He's cute. Don't you think he's cute?"
He's alright. Oh, you were talking to her.
"Yeah, he's cute," Kate admitted. She then said she met him because her sister works for the Jets.
"I met him briefly."
Ellen then asks: "How long have you all been dating."
"I don't know what you're talking about," Upton replied.
The dating rumors started dating in December, when the New York Post alleged that Sanchez was visiting Kate Upton's apartment. Of course, that was before she decided to get nearly naked for Sports Illustrated, so we didn't really care back then.
