Thanksgiving is all about family, love, and gratitude. Or at least, that’s what it’s supposed to be about. It’s supposed to be all smiles and warmth. It’s supposed to be full bellies and general chit-chat. The biggest debate at the Thanksgiving table should be apple or pumpkin pie. The only thing we should be fighting over is the wishbone.
Sadly, not all Thanksgivings are quite so calm and quiet. Thanksgivings are basically family reunions and we all know that things can get pretty dramatic when family is all back under one roof. So how do we deal? Well, we try to show up late or we bring a date. And who better to escort you home for Thanksgiving than a famous Hollywood celeb? Seriously, no one is going to ask you about that promotion you didn’t get at work if you have Matt Damon on your arm. And no one would even notice you spilled gravy on your great-grandma’s lace tablecloth if your date, Alicia Keys, is telling everyone about her latest Grammy win. So breathe easy, put on your eating pants, and pick up your perfect celeb date for Turkey Day!
