So something incredibly uncomfortable happened to me while watching the “Pretty Little Liars” meets “Twin Peaks” hot mess that is “Riverdale”: I found myself having a major lady boner for one of those goddamn twins from “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.” So many levels of wrong.
While, in the comics, it’s Archie who juggles both Betty and Veronica, in the show it’s Jughead who lands Betty and has an exponentially better make-out scene with her than all of Archie’s make-out scenes combined. And now all those who ship “Bughead” can rejoice, because apparently the two actors, Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart, are dating!
People magazine, which is WAAAAYYYYY more reliable than Us Weekly as they are not being paid by the Kardashians, said the two were “canoodling” and kissing at a recent Hollywood party:
“Reinhart was spotted wearing Sprouse’s maroon blazer at Entertainment Weekly‘s Comic-Con Bash in San Diego Saturday night, and the two were later seen canoodling, holding hands and kissing.”
Sprouse also took some really great pics of Reinhart and posted them on his Instagram and speculation has been going around for a while that Bughead is REAL, and now that People magazine is reporting it that makes it 100% officially real and I can’t say I’m surprised. You throw a bunch of 20-somethings together to make a sexy teen drama and a few of them ALWAYS end of dating for a while: Serena and Dan on Gossip Girl, Seth and Summer on The OC, Brooke and Lucas on One Tree Hill: All on-screen couples who ended up banging it out in real life for a few years.
Like, do I think these two are together forever? No. These teen drama romances never last, but I guess as long as you’ve got someone who gives you head in your trailer in between scenes you’re kind of living the dream.
