Barris, 42, was picking Lear's brain about his experiences in television when the conversation veered toward the 'phenomenon' that was Walker's character, J. The stunning claim was made by Norman Lear (right), who knows Walker, 69, from his stint as the executive producer of Good Times. Walker, a self-described 'realist independent,' told Bill O'Reilly of Fox News in 2012 that he did not vote for Barack Obama in either the 2008 or the 2012 election.
In his memoir, he writes that he voted for Ronald Reagan.
Coulter, meanwhile, is one of the more controversial conservative commentators in the country.
"I love [Walker]; he's a wonderful guy, but I'll tell you something about him that'll astound you: He dates Ann Coulter," Lear told Black-ish creator Kenya Barris during an interview with Entertainment Weekly on Monday, April 3.
Lear then claimed that he and his wife, Lyn Lear, had dinner with Coulter and Walker, adding that Coulter was "a dreamy, delicious, sweet person."Barris, 42, was surprised by the TV icon's comment.
Ann Coulter loves “Good Times” star Jimmie Walker — but only as a friend.
