Abby Elliott, Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen are in an odd alleged triangle. Abby Elliott was put in the Elisabeth Moss-Fred Armisen break up rumors, when Abby Elliott was alleged to replace Elisabeth Moss at Armisen’s side. The saga started when Moss and Armisen were reported to have broken up, despite being married for 10 months. It came as a shock to their fans from Mad Men and Saturday Night Live, for certain. Yet now that Abby Elliott is wedged in between Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen, it has made for unique tabloid conjecture.
Normally, stars from Mad Men and Saturday Night Live are free from the usual tabloid fodders. Yet Abby Elliott and Fred Armisen may not only be working together on SNL, but may be together in other ways. At least that’s what blogs are alleging, after Elisabeth Moss and Armisen reportedly split.
Life & Style Magazine has led the way in Abby Elliott/Elisabeth Moss/Fred Armisen reports, starting with the alleged break up of Moss and Armisen. The two had a seemingly ideal partnership, as they met on SNL in 2008, when Moss made a last-minute cameo in a Mad Men parody. 10 months ago, they were married, merging late night’s biggest sketch show with the most acclaimed drama on television.
Yet Life & Style reported last Friday that the couple had split, all the way back in May. According to their unnamed source, the two have been apart for three months, as Armisen is filming a new series and Moss is in Los Angeles, finishing Mad Men Season 4 and “spending quiet time with friends.”
The story took another turn when Abby Elliott was linked together with Armisen days ago. Elliott has been on SNL for two seasons, and is the daughter of comedian Chris Elliott. According to E! Online, their relationship is “very new” but they were allegedly spotted at an L.A. restaurant getting “very cozy.”
News that Abby Elliott was together with Fred Armisen, just days after Elisabeth Moss breakup news came out, sounds very scandalous. Fortunately, if Life & Style is correct in saying that the couple split in May, it means Armisen didn’t actually jump into a new relationship days later. Still, it has injected some new blood into the tabloid/blogosphere romantic rumor mill.
Despite all of these reports about Abby Elliott, Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen’s love lives, none of them have actually confirmed anything. Their representatives have not made any comments for them, and mostly unnamed sources have driven this story. However, Moss will be on the Emmy Award red carpet in nine days, so reporters will look closely to see who is with her.
All the rumors about Abby Elliott, Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen sound more like Mad Men material than SNL fodder. But Elliott and Armisen will supposedly be back on the SNL stage in a month, together or not, while Moss’s Peggy continues her own love turmoil on Mad Men each Sunday.
