We first heard about Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost after last season’s finale of Saturday Night Live. They were supposedly making out at the after-party. Then she made out with her lawyer, Kevin Yorn. After that she and Colin were seen together in the Hamptons and over Labour Day. Saturday night, at the SNL season premiere after-party, Scarjo and Colin were photographed arriving together, sort of. Scarjo didn’t want to be shot in the same frame. But she was there with him. Or rather, he was there with her. And Colin gets to begin the season the way he ended it, as Scarlett Johansson’s … somewhere in between bonafide and side-piece? What’s the word for that? Is there a word for that?

If there is no word for that, I propose making it “Jost”.

Jost – noun/verb:

Someone with no official status, neither a boyfriend or a girlfriend, but lives one level up from a bootycall.

Another celebrity “jost/josting” example: 

How about Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes? Was Jamie Foxx josting Katie Holmes for four years?
