It’s a Penny and Leonard lovefest! On Wednesday, January 6, The Big Bang Theory won big at the People’s Choice Awards, taking home the award for Favorite TV Show and Favorite Network TV Comedy. The entire cast of the hit CBS sitcom came out to celebrate the victories, but all eyes were on leads Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki.
The onscreen couple and real-life exes were affectionate and inseparable all evening, sitting next to each other, holding hands and posing backstage wrapped in one another’s arms.
But Cuoco, 30, quickly clarified the status of their relationship on Instagram.
“Thank you for the @peopleschoice award!! Look how happy we are!! @bigbangtheory_cbs season9 #mydate #notdating,” she captioned several shots with her costar pal.
Galecki, 40, also shared a cute selfie with Cuoco, writing, “The Beggar and the Beauty. #backstage #peopleschoice @normancook THANK YOU, FANS.”
Shortly after she announced her split from her husband of 21 months, Ryan Sweeting, in September, Cuoco took to Instagram in October to clear up rumors that she and Galecki had had a romantic reunion.
“So sorry to disappoint , but no home wreckers or secret flings going on here. Me and @sanctionedjohnnygalecki are just the best of buds- Leonard and Penny will just have to suffice!!!” she captioned a sweet pic of them together.
Galecki also posted a blurry Instagram photo kissing his new rumored girlfriend, Ariella Nicole, on New Year’s Eve, writing, “HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! To an even more incredible 2016. Let's all learn to love a little better.”
