I have never seen a full episode of The X-Files, nor could I tell you which one is Mulder and which is Scully. And yet when I heard last night’s rumor that former co-stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are in luv and shacking up together, I immediately lost my mind with excitement. You don’t need to be a File-head (that’s what you call yourselves, right?) to appreciate how magical it is when co-stars on a show/film filled with UST (that’s unresolved sexual tension for you internet newbs) actually get it on.
I asked X-Files super fan and awesomely hilarious comedy writer Annie Stamell why this rumor sparked such a frenzy of excitement, and she told me: “Ask any female fan of the X-Files, and the only person they’d be okay with dating Duchovny over themselves would be Gillian Anderson.”
Sadly, Duchovny’s rep said today that there is nothing going on between the pair. To which I say: SO WHAT! I can still find these two adorable and I can still dream of a day when they fall in love IRL. Until then, I should probably watch an episode or two.
Below: 10 glorious photos of David and Gillian being absolutely precious through the years.
If you’re have a sense of deja vu about this situation, don’t worry. This is actually the second time this has happened. David Duchovny and Tea Leoni have separated again. The first time they split up was back in 2008 when David went to rehab for sex addiction. They reconciled after that, but clearly still have their issues because it’s back to the same deal three years later.Ã‚Â David and Tea have been married since 1997 and have two children together. Whatever is going on between the couple, we’re hoping they work it out. There’s no talk of divorce just yet and if they got back together once before, we’re hoping it can happen a second time.
When we see ridiculously attractive celebs driving their Ferraris to some hot Hollywood party with their glamourous spouse by their side, it hurts.Ã‚Â To make ourselves feel better, we assume there must be a trade off for being so gorgeous and successful, and that these A-listers must be spectacularly stupid.Ã‚Â Our wounded egos desperately try to console us by saying, “Yeah well, they may be better looking, more popular, and have more money than you, but….at least you probably did better on your SATs! And you got that junior year calculus grade up to a C+, so Matt Damon can suck it!”
But we’ve got some really bad news. Many stars not only have the beauty and the brawn, but million-dollar brains to match. Check out the gallery below to see which smart stars made our Hollywood Honor Roll! And be sure to see Waiting for Superman, the new documentary about the cracks in our education system and the super-smart kids trying to climb out of them.
Recovering sex addict David Duchovny and his wife Tea Leoni split last year, but from the looks of it, the pair is back on – in a major way. The X Files star and his family hit up the beach to celebrate Father’s Day yesterday, and the once-distant pair seemed close and cozy. “Their relationship has really improved,” a source close to the couple tells People. “They’re still in love. They very much care for each other and whatever happens they are working it out for the kids.”

If you saw David Duchovny at the Golden Globes last night, you saw him talk about his wife. First he told anyone on the red carpet who’d listen that he was grateful for the support he received from his wife—not ex-wife, dammit! wife!—while putting his dick on ice in sex rehab. “I’m thankful for so much,” said the Californication star. “I’m just most thankful for my life and my family. My wife and my kids, the simple things in life. My gratitude opens my heart every day.” And, hopefully, not his fly.
If that wasn’t enough PDA for Tea Leoni, Double D appeared to mouth “wish you were here” (or “hi, West and Miller”—his kids) to the camera right before he lost Best TV Comedy Actor. He even described a text from his wife and son when presenting later in the show. Maybe she’ll let him sleep in the bedroom now.

Just to make sure we’re all on the same page, let’s repeat this one more time: David Duchovny did not have sex with his tennis instructor Edit Parkay. Sure, he’s a recovering sex addict, but the only balls that she saw were hit by his tennis racket. UK paper the Daily Mail first reported the fake story last month, and David is currently in the process of taking their butts to court for causing him “substantial harm.” Now the paper is on bended knee begging the actor for forgiveness, sheepishly putting forward this apology:
“On October 19, an article about actor David Duchovny may have suggested he had an amorous relationship with a tennis coach, Edit Pakay,” the paper says. “We now accept this is inaccurate and Ms. Pakay and Mr. Duchovny are only friends who used to play tennis occasionally. Their relationship went no further and was not a factor in Mr. and Mrs. Duchovny’s separation. We apologize to Ms. Pakay, Mr. Duchovny and to Mr. Duchovny’s family.”
If David chooses to forgive the rag, he can at least look to his wife as an example. Afterall, she’s probably had to forgive him a few times, doncha think? [Photo: WireImage]
David Duchovny may be a sex addict who filed for divorce immediately after leaving rehab because his wife was texting sex addict Billy Bob Thornton, but he is not nailing his tennis instructor! That’s his story and he’s sticking to it! In fact, he’s going to sue the Daily Mail for $1 million for claiming otherwise.
The Mail’s story, which included an interview with the instructor in question, Edit Parkay, was online for less than a week before the paper removed it. But the damage had already been done, as gossip blogs (including Scandalist) hopped on the rumor like David Duchovny getting a free pass for a porn site. Sex addict Duchovny claims his sex addict name has been tarnished by the tab, and wants moolah now. The Daily Mail has no comment as of yet.

It’s bad enough that David Duchovny banged enough chicks to warrant a stint in sex addiction rehab. But porking his 28-year-old tennis instructor Edit Pakay? That’s about as cheesy and cliched as you can get, unless he went to her house with a boom box and blasted “In Your Eyes.” That’s worse. The Hungarian tennis pro has come forward to elude that she may have boned David, but she can’t really tell us because, you know, that would be too easy. “We have a very, very close friendship. I don’t want to be the third person in the marriage but I know it can be seen that way. David and I are very close friends and we still play tennis together. He’s an excellent player. He likes physically strong, fit women.”
Scandalist can only interpret “very close” in one way – the touch-my-tennis-racket-but-don’t-tell-anyone kind of a way. But the ball is in David’s court. “I don’t want to say anything that might hurt David,” Edit said. “I am not going to deny it. I don’t know what our relationship means to him.”
Here’s a hint Edit: probably not much. [DailyMail. Photos: WireImage]
