This is one of oddest pieces of pro-Bar Refaeli propaganda ever. The Enquirer did some pro-Bar pieces when Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar were doing their break-up-and-make-up cycle early last year, but it’s never been like this. Once Bar and Leo were finally done, both of them seemed to “move on” quickly – Leo to Blake Lively, and Bar to a series of bikini-clad photo-ops (to show Leo what he was missing, presumably). I always got the impression that Leo screwed around on Bar all the time and she just turned a blind eye because she liked the career boost of being “Leo’s girlfriend” and she hoped to become the next Gisele Bundchen. I also felt like Leo dumped Bar – I think he was screwing around with Blake on and off for a few months, and then he decided to make it official with Blake, so he dumped Bar. So… all of that colored my opinion on this story about Leo secretly pining away for Bar while he’s with poor Erin Heatherton.
Leonardo DiCaprio might look like a man in lust with Erin Heatherton, but insiders say he’s still hung up on his ex, supermodel Bar Refaeli.
“Leo is using Erin,” said a close pal of DiCaprio. “She’s nice and all, but she’ll never win his heart. He hasn’t gotten over Bar, and in many ways he never will. She’ll always be the one who got away.”
Leo and Erin cozied up in Hawaii recently, and while she’s reportedly madly in love with him, DiCaprio’s pals say she’s headed for heartache.
“Erin’s playing the perfect low-maintenance girlfriend, but Leo’s going to get bored with that fast,” predicted another source. “He loved Bar’s feistiness and her ability to stand up to him. She was the only girl who was able to drag him home to play dutiful boyfriend. He wanted to marry her and even considered converting to Judaism for her.”
Bar finally called it quits with Leo in May 2011, and “Leo didn’t quite realize it was for good because they’d split so many times… and when he heard she’d started seeing other men, he reacted by going on a womanizing rampage.”
“Unfortunately for Leo, Bar wouldn’t touch him again with a 10-foot pole… she’s moved on after making the mistake of thinking she could change him. But Leo will always have his ego and his roving eye. Don’t feel sorry for him, though. He brought it on himself. The one who deserves sympathy is Erin. She’s a really sweet and genuine girl, but she’s just another notch on his bedpost.”

“Bar wouldn’t touch him again with a 10-foot pole”? Again, is he begging her to come back? Although it grosses me out, I have to admit that Leo has his pick of whatever Victoria’s Secret model he wants. If he does break up with Erin (which will probably happen), he’ll just move on to yet another 22-year-old with no cellulite and a great rack. Easy.
Also: In a weird piece of gossip counter-programming, In Touch claims that Leo and Erin might be headed for some baby-making. Erin told In Touch (at a charity event) that “having children makes more sense than what I do now. My mom was a preschool teacher, so I’ve been around kids. I’ve always loved them.” Maybe that’s not so much “counter-programming” as “the reason why Leo is going to dump her.” Even though Leo is on the record as saying he wants a wife and babies, do you think he’ll actually marry this girl and knock her up? No. I do not.
