Kristin Chenoweth took a swipe at her ex-boyfriend, House of Cards producer Dana Brunetti after the Golden Globes. The Broadway star took to Twitter to say, “So happy The Affair won tonight. #deserving love Ruth Wilson”. The Affair won the Golden Globe award for Best TV Series – Drama, beating Brunetti’s political thriller. Brunetti responded to Chenoweth by retweeting her tweet and adding “Ha” at the start. Whether it was in jest or not, it’s still pretty clear that the former couple were taking swipes at each other. Chenoweth and Brunetti broke up in November of last year after dating each other for one year.
Perhaps what caused Chenoweth to throw some shade was the fact that Brunetti went to the Golden Globes with his new girlfriend, Arrow star Katie Cassidy. The two started dating shortly after Brunetti and Chenoweth broke up. However, despite Brunetti’s loss, it seems that the new couple still had a great time. A source for E! News says, “Katie is really falling hard for Dana and the feeling is mutual as far as Dana feels.”

The insider added, “She hasn’t felt this way about a man in some time. He just gets her and their time together is always filled with laughter. They’ve been friends for a long time before they got intimate and that’s the main reason why it’s working out so well.”
During the time of Chenoweth and Brunetti’s break-up, a source close to the couple revealed the reason the two parted ways. According to the insider, “It was just the distance. Dana’s career is jetting off right now, and Kristin traveled a lot already, and they just barely had time to see each other. Just didn’t make sense for either party to continue.”
Chenoweth’s most recent role was in the animated film Rio 2 alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, and Leslie Mann.
