The Truth About Megan Mullally And Nick Offerman's Haunted House

One of Hollywood's most lovable couples may have shared their home with a spirit. At least that's what Megan Mullally says. She and her husband, "Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman, have been happily married since 2003 — after Offerman fake proposed three times (via Refinery29). 

The pair first met while doing a play together back in 2000 called "The Berlin Circle." She remembered thinking at the time, "Wait a minute, is he cute?" While he remembers thinking, "Wait a minute, is she a genius?" (via Buzzfeed).

When asked about how they finally got together, Mullally previously told New York magazine, "Shortly before opening night, we went out to dinner and he held my hand and I had butterflies, and I thought, Oh! A couple of nights later, we kissed. After the previews, we made out. We saw a lot of coyotes at that time, so we took it as some kind of magical symbol." 19 years later, they are still going strong.

The pair have chemistry both on and off screen

Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman are relationship goals. Offerman previously told Buzzfeed, "We're a couple that loves to work together, and getting to bring whatever skills we have to bear as a team is just the most gratifying." The multi-talented couple has been a part of 9 films together and has guest-starred in each other's projects multiple times. Mullally, most famous for her hilarious role as Karen Walker in "Will & Grace," shared an on-screen kiss with guest star Nick Offerman as the dreamy plumber, Nick the plumber.

Mullally later returned the favor as a recurring guest star on "Parks and Recreation," in which Offerman played the stoic and rugged Ron Swanson. Mullally portrayed Tammy Two, Ron's ex-wife who was always causing him trouble. Some of the most memorable episodes of "Parks and Recreation" are those in which Mullally guest-starred – and who better to portray an ex-husband and ex-wife than a real married couple? 

The couple live in a home with a famous former resident

While the couple is a comedic force, they've got no room for jokes when it comes to their haunted home. Megan Mullally told Busy Tonight (via People) about the spiritual presence she felt in her home — and this presence had a very famous and painful past. "It wasn't the same house, but it was on the same property where had once stood a house that O.J. Simpson had rented for Nicole Brown Simpson," she revealed. 

The murder of Nicole Brown Simpson took the media by storm in 1994. It was a cultural shift for everyone, shocking Los Angeles and subsequently the world when the events that followed her death were televised. Mullally herself has been in the limelight for many years and was very sympathetic to the paranormal things they were experiencing in their home decades later. 

"We would have in that house, in one corner of the house, like maybe where the bedroom used to be in the old house, we would have all these sounds and weird things all the time. I would be like, 'That's Nicole and she's p***** because Nick doesn't get it,'" she told Busy Tonight.

Megan Mullally revealed why she believes the hauntings have stopped

For decades, people have been trying to make sense of Nicole Brown Simpson's murder and the trial that followed, resulting in many stories recounting the events. The most recent account of this story follows the trial through the eyes of the prosecutors, searching for the answers to what happened to Nicole Brown Simpson. The true-crime limited series "The People vs. O.J. Simpson" was created by Ryan Murphy, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, and Brad Falchuk in 2016.

Just like the trial almost 30 years before, "The People v. O.J. Simpson – American Crime Story" was heavily watched and acclaimed. Amongst watchers was Nick Offerman, who began to truly understand and sympathize with the events and the victims after watching. 

Megan Mullally thinks this is what the spirit in their home was waiting for because the paranormal activity stopped after that. "Ever since then, no more sounds. She just needed Nick to understand what happened," she explained (via People).
