Joey King Confesses To Sending “Naughty” Text To Her Husband Before Taping ‘WWHL’

Joey King is no longer the little girl who starred in Ramona and Beezus and Taylor Swift‘s “Mean” music video.

The actress, who is now married, confessed to sending her husband (director Steven Piet) a “naughty” text message shortly before her appearance on Wednesday night’s (June 10) episode of Watch What Happens Live.

Host Andy Cohen kicked off the episode with a Bravo Clubhouse classic — a game of “Textual Behavior” — in which King and co-guest Rashida Jones had to answer his burning questions about their cell phone habits.

Not only did we learn that King has Brad Pitt‘s number saved in her contacts, but we also found out the NSFW gist of the last text she sent before sitting down for the interview.

“What was it? ‘Why am I doing this show?’ To your publicist,” Cohen joked, while a hesitant King figured out how to appropriately answer the question.

“It’s a little like … well, it’s like … now I’m, like, I have to be honest because I sent it. Well, now I’m like — I got a little sweaty,” King said, before finally admitting, “I texted my husband a little naughty something.”

King met Piet on the set of the 2019 Hulu series The Act when he directed two episodes. They made their red carpet debut that same year, before getting engaged in 2022. The couple officially tied the knot in a Spain wedding in September 2023, per People.

The actress previously opened up about getting married at 24 years old.

“I’ve been in a world in which I’ve been exposed to adulthood. I had a mortgage by the time I was 14. Responsibility makes you grow up a little bit faster,” she said during an April episode of the Armchair Expert podcast. “And my family and everyone in my life, they adore Steven. He’s the easiest person to love. They were so stoked.”

King’s bestie Sabrina Carpenter — who has skyrocketed to fame in recent months — sang during the ceremony as she walked down the aisle. However, King revealed on WWHL that she has yet to have a double date with the “Espresso” singer and her beau Barry Keoghan.

“Not yet. They’re busy people,” she said. “That’s OK. We’ll nail them down soon.”

Watch What Happens Live airs Sunday through Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo. New episodes are available to stream the next day on Peacock.
