Sally Field is the thirstiest mom

Updated, Feb. 19, 2018, 11:15 a.m. PT: Adam Rippon has responded! He hasn't tweeted back at Sally Field or Sam Greisman, but in an exclusive interview with BuzzFeed, he was asked about Field's very bold attempt to get Rippon to go out with Greisman, her son.

First, BuzzFeed asked Field for an update on her matchmaking efforts.

"Sam was mortified," she said. "I have to bud out now... but I would like to see Adam in the family."

That answer caused Rippon to scream and exclaim, "Sally!"

"She bold," he added.

But all hope is not lost for a Greisman-Rippon meeting. Rippon sent him a message through BuzzFeed, and it has us squealing.

"Sam, your mom — I admire her," Rippon said. "And I'm sure one day we're going to meet. So thanks, mom!"


Original story, published Feb. 19, 2018, 9:30 a.m. PT: There may be no more persistent force on this planet than a mom who wants grandkids. For the better part of a decade now, my mom has been trying to set me up with every eligible man within 10 years of my age. And now I find out she's not even the thirstiest mom out there.

Sally Field really, really wants to find a boyfriend for her 30-year-old youngest son, Sam Greisman. And when Greisman told her he, like literally everyone on the planet right now, has a crush on Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, Field saw an opportunity to land her boy one of the most eligible hotties in the world.

It started out as a private campaign to get Greisman to land a date with Rippon. Greisman posted to Twitter with a screen shot of a text conversation with Field, writing, "Just some really helpful advice from my mom on how to deal with my Olympic crush." In her response, Field texted Greisman, "Sam... he's insanely pretty. Find a way..."

Cryptically, Greisman didn't reveal exactly who that Olympic crush was when he tweeted the screen cap. But Field wasn't going to let the opportunity pass to let Rippon know exactly what was going on. She retweeted Greisman... and tagged Rippon.

Unfortunately, Rippon hasn't responded. Greisman did reply to his mom's tweet, just saying, "Yikes," which is a completely appropriate response. But if this lands him that date he wants, we bet he won't be complaining.
