Last night Bai Ling and Lionel Richie (no, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you) were spotted on a date at Whist at the Viceroy in Santa Monica, and the two looked very enamored with one another! An X17 videographer tells X17online exclusively:

    "Lionel was rubbing Bai's back, and the two sat very close to one another in the booth. It looked like a very romantic dinner, and even though the two arrived and left in separate cars, they were clearly meeting up for a date!"

What would Nicole say!? Can you imagine if Bai became...her STEPMOM!?!
