Over the weekend, while dining with George Clooney in Italy, Elisabetta Canalis waved her hand in the air, showing off a bauble on her ring finger. Fellow diners, and naturally the paparazzi, thought the item on her finger was an engagement ring. Which made everyone assume that George had popped the question. But George’s rep says that is not the case—and that it was a napkin ring Elisabetta had put on her finger as a joke. Hilarious? [People]
So was this a joke or is Clooney’s camp trying to cover for him? It’s hard to say. After the jump, other celebrities who’ve said their engagement rumors were sparked by misunderstandings. And let’s just say that a few of them walked down the aisle in secret shortly thereafter. Keep reading »

“George Clooney is the person thanks to which my life has regained color. I feel good, I feel light. I am happy like I was when I was 18 years old. Those who criticize or invent stories about us are just jealous … It might seem a cliché, but unfortunately it is true: the Italians never support their own citizens who earn an opportunity or a recognition abroad … I don’t expect to be celebrated, but neither do I expect the newspapers of our country to use as a reference point a gossip blog which is full of insults, racism and violence.”
—Elisabetta Canalis dishes to Italian Vanity Fair about her relationship with George Clooney, which she says is still going strong. We don’t know what she’s talking about in the end there, but we assume it can’t be the allegations that she snorted cocaine with a prostitute since that rumor broke last week and this interview was probably done a while ago.

George Clooney‘s Italian actress girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, has already made headlines for claiming Jennifer Aniston looks like raggedy old Iggy Pop and playing a nun who flashes her boobies in a film. Now court documents reveal that a prostitute employed by The Club, a nightclub in Milan, Italy, gave verbal testimony in October 2008 claiming she had done cocaine with Clooney’s girl.
We are shocked. Cocaine and prostitutes, and Charlie Sheen is not even involved? Keep reading »

Was is just me, or did George Clooney seem totally pissed off at the Oscars last night? His sour puss act in the front row almost made me miss Jack Nicholson smirking in his dark sunglasses. And George’s lady, Elisabetta Canalis, wasn’t looking too chipper either—those two had “Debbie Downer” written all over their faces. Sure, George played nice for two seconds on the red carpet, but once he got inside … forget it. What the heck does he have to be so pissed about? Our best guesses after the jump. Keep reading »
It’s T-minus two weeks until the Oscars, and we here in The Frisky office are already getting our Oscar pool organized—which means that you probably are, too. Luckily, the Academy is pretty predictable. And since we want you to win your co-workers’ money, we are looking at each of the major awards and dissecting some theories about who generally wins. Last week, we showed you that to win the Best Actress award, it’s best to be a card-carrying America’s Sweetheart getting her first nomination for a meaty role. To win Best Actor, it’s exactly the opposite—the Academy tends to vote on consistency in this category. In other words, the Oscar generally goes to the dude who has the most Best Actor and Best Supporting nominations under his belt already.
Don’t believe us? Here are just a few examples: Keep reading »
