Dexter and Deb

So I'm a big fan of Dexter, and was recently told that Michael Hall, the actor who plays Dexter, had divorced his wife and begun dating Jennifer Carpenter, the woman who plays his sister, Deb on the show. Watching tonight's episode (on t.v., nothing like on dvd...), I got curious, and decided to google them and see what was up. Indeed, the two are a couple, and he left his wife at the same time he began to date her.

Okay, that's weird. But what's really creepy is that her ex-boyfriend was listed as Christian Camargo, whose photo looked so familiar to me I had to google him. Oh my God...of course he looks familiar. He's the actor who plays Rudy Cooper, aka Brian Moser, aka the Ice Truck Killer, aka Dexter's brother.

Oh now that's just wrong. Here's what had to say about it:

Dexter Stars Keep It in the Family. Um, Ewwww

We've reported on some rumoured Hollywood hookups in the past that have made us want to cry (Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard), upchuck (Diane Keaton and Keanu Reeves) and throw our hands to the heavens and scream "why, God, why?!?" (Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst), but no odd couple sighting has ever left us trembling in the corner in the fetal position, crying for our mommies to come and make the icky visuals stop racing through our heads.

That is, until we heard about Dexter star Michael C. Hall's rumoured relationship with his TV sister, Jennifer Carpenter. Everyone's favourite serial killer has reportedly been spending lots of off-screen quality time with his little sis, reports People.

The small screen sibs were spotted dining at the Sunset Tower Hotel last week, celebrating news that their Showtime show won a prestigious Peabody award.

"It was romantic," an eyewitness tells People. "They were drinking champagne and there was the clinking of glasses. They were clearly celebrating."

"I don't see what the big deal is," a source close to the couple adds. "They play brother and sister on the show, but they are actors, after all."

Not a big deal? Oh sure, it's all puppies and rainbows now, but just wait until she looks twice at another man and Dexter retaliates by Saran Wrapping his ass and cutting him up into tiny little pieces.

And they didn't even know about the Rudy connection. Shiver...

And I thought Mariettans were incestuous!

MCH and his ex split after his Six Feet Under series and before Dexter started. I don't think he even new JC until the Dexter series came along.

And I'm pretty sure that MCH and JC didn't get together until after S1. Maybe not until filming of S2 stared.

Really? Rumors abound, apparently.

It's still icky...
