Social Media Loves the Fact That Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris Once Dated Montel Williams!

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is preparing to take office this January, but social media is buzzing about something from her past: a brief relationship with Montel Williams!

Photos of the Vice President-elect and the former The Montel Williams Show host together with his daughter Ashley Williams attending the Eighth Annual Race to Erase Multiple Sclerosis on May 18, 2001 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, Calif. are making the rounds on Twitter on Friday (November 13), resulting in a Trending Topic, with many people weighing in and imagining if Montel could have been heading to the White House.

Montel himself confirmed the brief romance a year ago in a tweet: “@KamalaHarris and I briefly dated about 20 years ago when we were both single. So what? I have great respect for Sen. Harris. I have to wonder if the same stories about her dating history would have been written if she were a male candidate?” he said in response to a tabloid journalist.

At that time, Kamala was working for the San Francisco City Attorney’s office. She is now married to Doug Emhoff – find out more about the future “second gentleman” of the White House.
