Sara Foster Hilariously Argues with Husband Tommy Haas About Peloton Bike While Social Distancing
In a series of videos shared by Foster, 39, on Instagram Wednesday, the couple hilariously argue about the popular cycling machine because they “ran out of things to fight about” after “14 days quarantined” amid the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
“Not one athlete — one real athlete — [who] has motivation needs a Peloton to look at a big screen, that’s way too big anyway, to have somebody tell them what to do on what level,” Haas, who is a professional tennis player, tells his wife in the first clip.
“What do you have against Peloton,” the Barely Famous alum retorts, to which Haas, 41, denies having a problem with the bike.
“It’s great for people like you. I think it’s awesome. I think you need the motivation. I think you need the inspiration all the time to tell you what to do,” the athlete explains in a second video. “I don’t need that. I want my peace. When I go on the bicycle … I know what I’m going to do. I have my different levels.”
He continues in a third clip, “The best thing for anyone would be to get a real road bike and go out there, especially during these times. Even though you’re not supposed to go outside, you still have social distancing, you know? That’s what we do.”
“Why are you so mad,” Foster asks, before Haas tells her that he’s not angry and walks away from the conversation.
Foster jokingly wrote in the caption of her post, “How many couples will make it through the quarantine? Asking for a friend.”
Foster’s exchange with Haas clearly struck a chord with people who are also practicing social distancing amid the coronavirus crisis, with many of her followers commenting how much they related to the trivial dispute.
“This feels… familiar,” TV host Ben Mulroney wrote.
MLB star Justin Verlander quipped, “‘😡I’m not mad 😡’ …. Classic.”
“I don’t think there’s ever a world — unless I was like, destitute, and even then probably — where I would fight with women on-camera and be myself,” she said at an event celebrating her partnership with Bev, a canned California rosé created by founder and CEO Alix Peabody. “I don’t want anyone to know what I’m like in the morning. I don’t want anyone to see that side of me!”
