George Clooney is “ready to move on” from Stacy Keibler: a post-Oscars dump?

CB, Bedhead and I were debating the veracity of this George Clooney story yesterday. Mike Walker, the gossip columnist for The Enquirer, claims that Clooney is telling friends that he’s “ready to move on” from Stacy Keibler. Bedhead (rightly, IMO) said that there’s no way that Clooney would dump Stacy before the Oscars. This is her contractual obligation, after all. She knew back in August of 2011 that if she played her cards right, she would become the embodiment of The Oscar-Date Barbie. So, even if this report is true, nothing is going to happen for another… say, month?

Urgent memo to Stacy Keibler: George Clooney’s slicker than Houdini when it comes to slipping the chains of love, and now your paramour/perennial bachelor’s suddenly confiding to pals that he’s ready to pull a Clooney on you – but admits he’s having a hard time breaking the news to your face.

“She’s everything that every man would want, but I’m ready to move on,” sighed George to a close friend. BTW, Stacy, it isn’t any specific thing – he’s saying your relationship’s simply run its course. Sorry, girl!

[From Mike Walker’s column, The Enquirer, print edition]

Of course, George might end up playing some kind of mind game with us. Remember Elisabetta Canalis’s poor showing at the 2010 Oscars? I thought the same thing then – this girl isn’t going to last much longer. But Eli did – she ended up staying with Clooney more than a year after that bad showing. So what did Eli have that Stacy might not? Or is Stacy’s game even better than Eli’s and Stacy is going to stick with Clooney for much, much longer than we realize?

Oh, and the Enquirer has another story about George and Stacy, but this one seems a bit weird. It’s all about how after the Golden Globes, George was craving Big Macs. So he sent his assistant out to get 100 Big Macs, and George shared with Stacy and his friends. It just seems so random. Does McDonalds even fill an order for “100 Big Macs”? Is that some kind of code that I’m not understanding? Is it a sex thing? What’s a “Happy Meal”? No, I don’t want to know.

    But I so thought she was the one he’d marry!!!!! (NOT). About the time to move on.

  2. Tapioca says:

    Maybe he wants to move on to a more age-appropriate, intelligent, behind-the-scenes-kind of lady and settle down?


  3. John Thing says:

    I don’t think so. Maybe Bradley Cooper would be right for him?

  4. whatthehell456 says:

    Her software has become outdated…Time to upgrade. “NEXT!!!!”…..”Now serving number 17….”

  5. Kiki says:

    If this is true it’s just a very sad commentary of both parties. I’m kind of hoping they actually enjoy one another.

  6. GoodCapon says:

    Is anybody even surprised?

  7. paola says:

    I think she knew it all along, it was in the contract. he picks a z-list celebrity girl, she becomes famous, increases her paycheck and in return the whole world will think he’s straight. Soooo predictabel.

    • brin says:

      She said in an interview that they have known each other for a while, so it is possible she’s “in on it”.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        OK, so this contract.
        Maybe I’ve just been watching Confessions of a London Call Girl too much, I dunno.
        Do you think all his GFs are just extremely well paid call girls who make themselves available for long term hire. They have to be classy (somewhat), pretty, and dateable.
        Seems to fit. Larson, Cannalis, Keibler-who wasn’t doing much when she hooked up with him. Who else?
        If that’s it, it fits the kinky sex rumors, the serial dating, the no marriage and babies. Hmmmm.
        Thanks Belle D’Jour.

      • Petunia says:

        OriginalTiffany, I think it’s one of two things: he’s gay and they’re beards (which I believe to be true) or else your theory. Your theory works just as well as the gay theory.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        I think my theory fits both. If he’s using the “call girl” as a beard, maybe he wants a little female attention, a bit of sexual kink with a girl, but is mainly into dudes. Even if it is a full beard, I still think my theory fits.
        You hire a girlfriend, you both know how it is going to end, what is expected and you get your perks. Vacations, name prestige, maybe a house.
        Doesn’t he always leave his girls pretty set up?

        I think I am onto something. It fits his dating pattern to a T.

    • paola says:

      I just think these ladies never seem to be around for too long, they become educated to red carpets and important events, they get trained about hair and make up and they can wear haute couture gowns. It always seems to be the very same plot, if it was true love you would see it in their eyes, body language and most of all never selling last updates to the media. I think george is gay, not strong enough to say it to the world mainly because his fame is strictly depending on his playboy behavior. This is why Elisabetta canalis never spoke to the media about him after the break up, it’s in the contract too… it’s a deal, they get everything to spread the wing after the break up, they actually become rich and famous famewhore-wise and the world will never think he’s truly gay, and at the end, the sweetest note is that they can’t reveal any intimate detail about their relationship, i wouldn’t explain it other wise, they’re famewhores, they would make millions out of that story, and they would sell it if they could, but they never do and the answer is written in a contract!

    • JudyJudyJudy says:

      or maybe he likes regular women who aren’t self-absorbed 24/7. I know someone who met him over a period of time – he is down to earth, funny, and 100% likes female company. You are making things up and stating them as fact, which is unfair.

  8. Jayna says:

    LOL. George’s close friends are his lifetime friends for a reason. They don’t talk. Men don’t talk about relationships to each other. I doubt George confides about nis brief girlfriend. It’s a given he will dump her. Made-up article.

    • Marjalane says:

      I know, that article put a picture in my mind of George and all his cronies in a huddle with George saying, “O.K., I’m getting ready to dump this bimbo- pass it on”, and the friends jump into a car to get the news to the Enquirer.

      Here’s a tip George: Take your lovely parents to the Oscars. It will endear you to us.

  9. Lonnie says:

    Think the next one will be blonde or brunette? Mediterranean or home grown? Maybe someone will hook him up with Liu Wen, the Victoria Secret model? That’d be a nice change from his usual Cindy Crawford lookalikes.

  10. Bubbling says:

    meh, I don’t like this dude one bit. Basically he is glamorized man whore and if any woman would introduce half her age jump offs to public eye like that she would be labeled as pathetic cougar

  11. Manuela says:

    she is ugly. i miss Eli. anyway i becoming fan of idea he is a gay dont know why…could be great couple with Pitt bcs seems Angi is bitch as well)))

  12. Maya says:

    This ‘relationship’ looked and looks so staged.

  13. says:

    Just for once, I’d like the random girlfriend-for-hire to dump his old pretentious ass.

  14. Julie says:

    well its a win:win situation. he wins, she wins and when both won, the game is over. next.

  15. Cody says:

    Are you kidding this one is going to stick around like glue until he has to peel her off. She is going to be around for awhile, no way she is going to give another girl the spotlight. She hasn’t even made it to Lake Como and what about their vacation to Greece they talked about on the red carpet. I thought he liked her because she is a guy’s girl or girl’s girl, and independent, doesn’t need to be baby sat at parties and she seems to know everybody in Hollywood the way she tweets and acts on the red carpet. Do you think he is going to give up those long legs to another man. LOL

  16. Lavender says:

    They do not even look like they are somewhat remotely interested in each other. So fake.

  17. Rook says:

    100 Big Macs is code for “I’m high as a kite!”

  18. Cathy says:

    I think he’s tired of being beat up by her. She is a former wrestler (she’s still gotta have some of those wrestling muscles.) and taller than him. He’s probably just tired of getting tossed all around the room during hanky-panky time.

  19. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I wonder if the Big Mac reference was George ordering a lady (or gentleman) of the evening and a menage a trois. Three all beef patties special sauce lettuce cheese, hmm.

  20. Paloma says:

    Elizabetta seemed like a lump of clay, IMO. Just there, nothing to her, but I think George cared for her. I don’t think he cares that much for Stacy; although, I think she is a better choice. I think she is probably just a rebound for him.

  21. Kara Ann says:

    I don’t think this “reporting” is anything other then a probably accurate guess that these two won’t last. I guess the Enquirer or whoever wrote it can hope they break up soon so they’ll seem to have had the scoop. Of course, they can print something every week for the next year and eventually they’ll be right!

    I don’t dislike George’s constant change of lovahs but I do wish they were a little closer to his own age. I’d enjoy keeping up with that story.

  22. Amy says:

    Dump her NOW please. Take your mom to the awards like Alexander Payne is doing. That will be your penance for making us look at this trash the past six months. Even EC was better than this one.

  23. Hugo a go go says:

    George, isn’t it about time you really “Came out” with the truth.

    The women who have dated you are all beautiful enough and you’ve sold the eligable batchelor act for years but come on, your not getting any younger and these girls are just your “Friends”.

    Who are you really kidding ?

  24. original kate says:

    i think george only likes women who are unknown, and therefore no threat to his career. has he ever dated anyone with an actual career? i think he and renee zellweger were together for about a second, but other than that they are always no-name bimbos.

    which makes me think he is gay or he just only likes women for sex and doesn’t view them as actual people.

    in either case, keibler is outta there; i’m sure he already has her replacement lined up.

  25. nan says:

    He’s a sleeze-ball. She’s too good and too young for him.

  26. irishserra says:

    I find it’s sad that in every picture she’s gazing at him and his attention is not on her at all. However, that alone makes me convinced of the beard theory.

  27. Tweakspotter says:

    The vein in her forehead just got too big…

  28. Chris says:

    I am so ready for him to dump her so I can go back to loving him again. They are a horrible couple.

  29. BJD says:

    I have no idea what these two would even have in common, irrelevant of the obvious! They are just the oddest mis-match!

  30. Team Six says:

    All about the pics

    George is winning Best Actor this year, so like the prom pics, who do you want in the pics?

    Like others I wonder if the breakup isn’t imminent and the parents will be on the red carpet.

    T’will be interesting to see where this story goes

  31. alexandra says:

    He reminds me to Richard Chamberlain. He was a man’s man, but no one could figure out if he was gay. As a child loved him in Thorn bird.

  32. Dolly Llama says:

    UGH. George Clooney. Can we say love addicted narcissist?

  33. Orange Cone says:

    is it me or is she all smug? uh

  34. Guest says:

    Well I just saw on Just Jared that they went out to dinner last night and they look like their showmance is still going on, maybe they read the National Enquirer article.

  35. Playlist says:

    Breaking up with her before the seasonal lease contract is up? Aren’t George’s girlfriends covered under rent control?

  36. Mirror says:

    Please George let the next one be closer to your age and let her have more class and decency.

  37. Mirror says:

    George Clooney is not gay. He is a feminine man, yes – BUT not gay.

  38. Miss Lafleur says:

    Just because people opt not to get married and have children does not make them gay. It makes them smart. He seems to have an extremely fulfilling intellectual life. Enjoy your life george, it looks pretty damn cool!

  39. shawn says:

    Probably they are planning to release a “denial” to Gossip Cop in a few days, as part of George’s ongoing bid for an Oscar. Hence, George gets publicity both from the breakup rumor and from the “denial.” When he had the contract with Canalis, they went through several of these planted breakup rumor / denial cycles before the contract finally ended, although they didn’t even spend the last six months around each other at all. As to why George does these publicity contracts, I think it is a combination of very bad p.r. advice and doing favors for people. Keibler may be a friend of a friend, that is she has provided “escort services” to one of his friends (and perhaps still is), and the friend asked that Clooney help Keibler out. Clooney is very big on networking and doing favors for people, evidently even when it makes him look like a moron.

  40. FeverDream says:

    I too agree with Paola’s theory.

    George Clooney is gay. He sets my gaydar full blown three alarm ringing.

    These women are clearly picked to keep up the charade. He gets to be a bankable star a la Rock Hudson, they get massive gifts, attention, infamy and occasionally opportunities (Canolis on Dancing With The Stars?).

    Can’t stand him – he comes off like a fraud.

    So does Damon and his baby oven beard.

  41. Chrissy says:

    Does anyone know what that line is down the middle of her forehead in the last picture? I’ve seen it before. A vein? Very unflattering. I think this is why I don’t like her hair back. She should get bangs.

  42. DT says:

    Same exact series of “leaks” from “close friends” were part of his past break-up scenarios including the “George is too nice to give the the boot” line. Ladies, face it, you are interchangeable to this guy.

  43. JudyJudyJudy says:

    the people who call him gay are obviously hoping he drops by a bar near them. :-)
    we all get it and we feel sorry for you’re loss.

  44. xploxite says:

    They look so good together, gorgeous & so sweet. I like the way she looks at him, deeply in love with him.

  45. Kosmos says:

    He’s never going to marry, he could never be tied down and says he’s just not good at marriage. The constant stream of women is all he wants, and he’ll continue to have them because of his fame and looks, although that is changing a bit. These are just women for the moment. I like Clooney, but I fear he has “issues” just like most people.

  46. sickandtired says:

    I’m so sick of his soon to be over the hill azz. Why these women even want to be bothered with him, I’ll never know. Everytime I see a new person on his arm, I’m always dismayed because whether he’s secretly not really attracted to women or not the fact that he seems to have committment issues at his age is just pathetic. I couldn’t care whether he’s straight, gay, bi or not he’s just too damn old to be so emotionally wishy washy. It’s not a good look for a much younger person let alone his old azz. Just disgusting and I wish these silly women would stop pumping his head up like he’s still something wonderful. Time for him to go sit his azz down and grow up. I hear a rocking chair calling his name, Mr. Clooney take a seat!!!!

  47. Erin says:

    I’ve thought George Clooney was a creep for awhile. Ick. Grow up already, you’re ancient!

  48. Lorenzo says:

    Oh poor woman, don’t you be mad before I get started here :) Keibler’s fake smile is just pathetic.
