Jennifer Love Hewitt may not be tying the knot with beau Jamie Kennedy just yet.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t new experiences in store for the I Know What You Did Last Summer star – like belting out standards and cracking jokes.
That according to Jamie Masada, owner of the The Laugh Factory comedy clubs in Hollywood and Long Beach, Calif.
Interviewed on Movie Addict Headquaters, the impresario recounts how erroneous reports of Jen’s betrothal sprung from his legendary establishment.
“Jamie Kennedy was in the club in Long Beach last Saturday night. And he went two hours and seven minutes. He was amazing. He was getting a standing ovation – over 400 people screaming, telling him how much they love him,” Jamie tells host Betty Jo Tucker.
“And then he starts talking about Jennifer Love Hewitt. And then he brought Jennifer up there. And they went back and forth with each other. They had a little bit of conversation. And Jennifer was very, very funny.
“At that point, all of a sudden, Jamie said, ‘Jennifer is a great singer. She can sing.’ And Jennifer starts singing this beautiful a cappella song.
“And someone from the audience starts screaming, ‘Marry her! Marry her!’ And Jamie – I don’t know if real – kind of like bowed to her.
“Then Jennifer got up and – she was sitting on the stool – she got up and they started kissing each other on the lips and everything,” he adds of the couple, who met on the set of the CBS series Ghost Whisperer in 2008.
“A lot of people were reporting that that was a proposal of marriage.
“But that was the end of it.”
As for Jen’s newfound talents, Jamie (Masada, that is), thinks she definitely has the chops to expand into the art form he knows best – to say nothing of recording artist.
“I gotta tell you, she was witty, she was funny, her timing was so good.
“And her singing was wonderful.”
Though Jen and Jamie (Kennedy, that is) talked about engagement rumors last month on an Arizona radio show, People magazine reports, ealier today the comedian Tweeted, “There’s a lil rumor going round that i got down on one knee in Long beach. If i was gonna get down on one knee do u think i wud do it in the LBC????… I luv my girl and wen it happens you’ll be the first to know.”
