Things got a little awkward for Keke Palmer after being asked out on live television, adding that she felt “ambushed.”
Keke palmer has no doubt been killing the games as one of the newest hosts of Strahan, Sara, and Keke, but this latest episode left her feeling “Ambushed.”
During one of their segments on Tuesday, Bachelor in Paradise contestant Mike Johnson was in the hot seat. He was asked about his relationship with Demi Lovato when things got a little interesting. Mike shared that he is no longer looking to have his dating life be apart of the public eye after pictures surfaced of him and Demi kissing. He followed that statement up by turning to Keke and saying;
“I made a mistake, I don’t like dating in public, but if I were to ask you if we can go on a date” followed by a long pause, cheers from the audience and a mortified look from Keke!
During that moment, Michael and Sarah looked away as things became a little more awkward as Keke tried to divert the topic of conversation! Granit, Mike didn’t get a chance to finish his sentence, but Keke was not here for it at all!
On Wednesday, the topic was brought up in a new segment when Keke was asked if she would date Mike to which she said no she would not.
“I get real spooked about entertainers or reality [stars]…I don’t know, it really scares me to date people in the industry—that’s number one. Number two: He asked me in front of everybody.” When Sara asked her if she felt “ambushed,” she said “I felt ambushed. I felt like it was a big ol’ gag.”
As for Mike, he took to Twitter sharing that he had no intention of actually trying to ask her out on a date, he was just deflecting the question from his personal dating life.
For those with untrue assumptions.. I’m grateful to be in your thoughts…
1. I deflected a question posed to me on my dating life – made a playful comment
2. I love black women too
3. Im happy, those are the vibes 🙌🏽
