This isn’t too shocking…
During the US Open on Monday, Bill Clinton was seen on camera sitting next to sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
The two were seen laughing and smiling together.
At one moment Dr. Ruth even appeared to playfully slap Bill.
Sometimes comedy writes itself.

The New York Post reported these details:
All the stars turned out in Flushing on Monday to witness Serena Williams kick off her farewell at the US Open against Danka Kovinic.
Perhaps the oddest sighting was that of President Bill Clinton and sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer seated next to one another.
The pairing seemed to have plenty to discuss, smiling and nodding at one another with Dr. Ruth at one point appearing to give the former Commander in Chief a playful slap on the face.

People Magazine added more to the story:
Serena Williams’ last US Open is making for some memorable moments — both on and off the court.
During the tennis legend’s first game in the tournament on Monday, former president Bill Clinton, 76, was in attendance with an unexpected guest: sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
Throughout the game, the Ask Dr. Ruth star, 94, and the politician talked plenty, often smiling, laughing and nodding at one another. At one point, Dr. Ruth appeared to give Clinton a playful slap on the face.
When the camera first panned to the duo, ESPN analyst and former tennis star John McEnroe asked, “Who knows what they’re talking about?”
Trying to understand their conversation, co-analyst and former tennis player Chris Evert said, “Look at these two, they’re really involved in some sort of … She’s giving him advice,” co-analyst Chris Evert said, The New York Post reported. “She just gave him advice. Yep, ‘You shouldn’t be doing that.'”
“Why is his face getting redder?” McEnroe joked.
